Friday ONT: I Stick It!

Hi folks! First Friday in December. Anyone have any special holiday plans this year? Gingy fell off the toilet today, but instead of inventing the flux capacitor she gave herself a bunch of bruises. She's fine, nothing broken, but I've been tending to her all day. Here's a factoid: We're familiar with the fact that 71% of the world's surface is covered with water, but have you ever considered that in terms of volume?

Theory is that all the wayer on Earth arrived via comets. So how dd it originate before the comets were formed? How about oxygen and hydrogen meeting in the atmosphere? Is that a stretch?

The x axis is self-hatred, and presumably runs from low to high. Gin is very low on it.

The y axis is hatred for others, and gin is very high on it.

If you've ever looked online for a recipe or answer to a simple question like "how long to cook a turkey?", the blogs never just say "15 minutes a pound at 350. You're welcome."

You always have to read through sone long narrative about the joys of cooking turkey.

Or in the case of recipes, read some extensive description before finally getting to the actual recipe three pages down screen.

81 " Those bubbles of water just don't seem big enough"

yeah, I don't get it. The big drop is all water, including oceans?

I kinda get that oceans are rather shallow compared to the diameter of the earth ... but it still seems the drop would be larger. The drop would be maybe 1500 miles in diameter? Oceans average ? 3 miles deep? So that drop spread out fills all the oceans? I guess, maybe. I didn't try to type out the link in the pic.

Maybe the real point is how large the volume of earth is compared to surface water.

The total water mass of the Erf is estimated at ~10^18 metric tons, which is about 330 million cubic miles of volume at STP. That is just 0.023% of Erf's total mass.

That's all the water. You break it down further. Assuming that graph is based on accurate volume representations, yep, it's a small looking amount.

71% of the Earth's surface is water-covered, and this sounds like a lot of water.

But only 0.12% of Earth's total volume is liquid water.

Look at this chart.

The largest sphere represents all of Earth's water. Its diameter is about 860 miles and has a volume of about 1,386,000,000 cubic kilometers km³.

The blue sphere over Kentucky represents the world's liquid fresh water (groundwater, lakes, swamp water, and rivers). The volume comes to about 10,633,450 km³.

Do you notice the "tiny" bubble over Atlanta, Georgia? That one represents fresh water in all the lakes and rivers on the planet. Most of the water people and life of earth need every day comes from these surface-water sources. The volume of this sphere is about 22,339 mi3 (93,113 km3).

I had proposed a scheme by which free protons in the solar wind would be collected in magnetic fields and combined with Oxygen freed from smelting Lunar regiolith to make water as a side product of metal smelting in orbit.

I was told by someone that the solar wind was too diffuse in Earth's orbit to be useful. So I asked if it would be better to run a cometary orbit from the asteroids to within Venus' orbit to pick up ore from there, and both collect solar wind hydrogen, and to run the forges on solar heat close into the Sun?

this was going to be the milieu for a sci fi book tentatively called "Sunforge"

An interesting thought experiment has been could you have a planet entirely made of water. A big ol' ball of water floating in space that could hold itself together by its own gravity and not lose itself to space.

For liquid water as we know it, the answer is no. But, turns out you can if you pack enough water together. The core would have to be ice, solid state water, but not the familiar ice we know (Ice I). It would be one of the very exotic ices that exist at extreme pressures and temperatures.

Amazingly, it turns out some of these exotic ice phases are conductive, and such a core could perhaps sustain a magnetic field.

The diameter of such a thing to have 1g surface gravity would be very large, I believe.

172 Our vintage martini glasses hold three shots of gin, a teaspoon of dry vermouth, and some headroom to allow three bleu cheese stuffed olives, enough air left so you can safely wobble around the kitchen and not spill any.

The gin and glasses are kept in the freezer, the vermouth in the fridge, along with the olives.

I use cracked ice in the shaker and shake until my hands are numb from the cold. When first poured, all those tiny chips of ice in the drinks almost look like some special effect in a film.

Dad loved martinis and called them "silver loudmouths."

174 An interesting thought experiment has been could you have a planet entirely made of water. A big ol' ball of water floating in space that could hold itself together by its own gravity and not lose itself to space.

For liquid water as we know it, the answer is no. But, turns out you can if you pack enough water together. The core would have to be ice, solid state water, but not the familiar ice we know (Ice I). It would be one of the very exotic ices that exist at extreme pressures and temperatures.

Amazingly, it turns out some of these exotic ice phases are conductive, and such a core could perhaps sustain a magnetic field.

The diameter of such a thing to have 1g surface gravity would be very large, I believe.

My Martini glasses hold about 4 or 5oz total. I've tried many different olives, some stuffed, others not. One of most interesting was anchovies stuffed olives. Although it did make the Martini cloudy which is something I personally don't care for.

So after the great flood from above, we found equilibrium with rain and weather systems absorbing a lot of water.

Still can't see water over the highest mountains, but imo, some of the OT stories are hyperbole, perhaps to "compete" with other pagan stories or something, idk.

Talk about exotic ice. Consider Superionic ice, or Ice VXIII. This exists at temps in thousands of K range, kK, and pressures of 500Gpa (~70 million psi).

The oxygen atoms form a crystal lattice and hydrogen freely moves through like a liquid. It is very conducting, and about 4x the density of normal ice. It's also jet black in color. Black ice indeed.

While it was theorized to exist for some time, they actually synthesized and confirmed its existence at Livermore in 2019.

I agree, men and women valuate things differently and I am not saying that as a "penis good vagina bad thing" there are individual as well as collective differences.

5 years is out of the courting phase, trust is either there or it is not. A smart man uses the courting phase to exert EVERY effort to show where the limits of their ability to accommodate feminine whim are and to make the woman feel valued and respected. A smart woman understands that a man in that phase will likely not tolerate unfaithfulness period.

Anyway, the last breakup hurt the lad, he really had unrealistic high hopes he is for the first time dating an older female by about a year.

The difference is in baseline human cognition I think. Not being facetious either I think there is a coinflip split in an individual regarding whether they value their mind as superior to reality in regards to imagination or they value the mind as a tool to navigate a very measurable and quantifiable reality. The current post-modernist left is very sincere in believing that their beliefs trump reality.

And the little shop, right next door, where the tools and workbench are, is heated nicely. So I'm not enduring the cold continuously.

The number not caught ranges from 30 to 50 percent of the caught number. This sector doesn't have anywhere near the resources Texas has, and with our governor's office occupied by a usurper demonrat the state does little more than lip service, so the not caught number may be much higher.

" The answer lies in a chemical called malic acid, which can be found in red wine. When malic acid interacts with the bile in the digestive system, it can cause the stool to turn green. This reaction happens because red wine contains tannins, a polyphenol not easily broken down during digestion."

Posted by: Don Black at December 01, 2023 11:48 PM (geLO


If there is life on other planets, other than plants, I'm guessing it will be like the sea life on our planet that lives near deep ocean vents. Plus, we're an evolved carbon life form. There may be other life forms with a different chemical makeup which may or may not evolve. Who the bloody hell knows? I read a book years ago on this subject, 'Where Is Everybody?' With lots of maths, the author (a physicist involved with measuring the universe) shows the astronomical odds of finding a habitable planet in the 'Goldilocks' zone of each solar system, if there are any planets at all in a solar system. Even assuming 5 planets per solar system, finding that Goldilocks planet with intelligent life and actually meeting up with and communicating with said life is a real mathematical long shot. Not impossible, but almost approaching zero according to Stephen Webb, the author of that book.

Just how big is the Milky Way Galaxy? It's hard to grasp that. First start with the 1000 yd model of the solar system.

Take a basketball and put it down in the middle of a big field. That's Sol. Walk 26 paces. Put a peppercorn down. That's Erf. I'll skip the pacing for most of the planets. Now go out a 1000 yds, a 1000 paces from the basketball. Put down a little grain of sand. That's Pluto.

Now, imagine the Milky Way is the width of the contintental US, Think of that pinwheel superimposed. Thickness would be about 10 miles up and down.

Now, where is the solar system in that. Take a quarter and plop it down somewhere in east Tennessee. That's that 1000 yd solar system in the Milky Way.

If you have no batteries, yes, and as Romeo says, on a sunny day at high noon. BUT with batteries, it means you need to store energy for maybe forty minutes (at 50% full sun) to run the 2000 watt toaster for one minute.

Or buy bigger panels ... but solar (for the prepper type moron) is for backup mostly ... and if you have cash on hand, why not but 10K watts of panels and a larger battery bank? Just in case BigBro decides to throttle us down.

396 The weekly numbers just dropped for the Tucson Sector. Another 17,500 illegal invaders allowed to cross the border. That brings our three week total to 47,100 illegals 'caught' in the sector. The number not caught ranges from 30 to 50 percent of the caught number. This sector doesn't have anywhere near the resources Texas has, and with our governor's office occupied by a usurper demonrat the state does little more than lip service, so the not caught number may be much higher.

404 That's kinda where I am. Dinosaurs inhabited the earth for tens of millions of years, but as far as we can tell, never evolved any degree of higher intelligence or technology, in spite of their wide variety of physical characteristics.

Maybe current earth level technology is unique, or at least very rare in the universe.

406 Or buy bigger panels ... but solar (for the prepper type moron) is for backup mostly ... and if you have cash on hand, why not but 10K watts of panels and a larger battery bank? Just in case BigBro decides to throttle us down.
Posted by: illiniwek at December 02, 2023 12:38 AM (Cus5s)

I've got 25 panels on the house, with a 10K battery. Cost me right at 50K for the whole thing... but last year I only paid the $30 a month admin fee for electricity for the entire year.

But that is Central Valley calif... would not work out anywhere where is snow, or at higher latitudes.

Hell, does not work 2 hours from here in the Bay area due to all the foggy and overcast days.

Oh, and Calif changed the deal for new installs, where you only get about 30% credi back from the grid, from what you put into the grid (old deal was 1:1).

416 The Drake Equation "This calculation arrives at the estimated figure of 100 million worlds where life has been forged by evolution"

For one thing, it assumes that ANY life has been forged by evolution. Why would conditions for life "Forge" new life by "evolution"? Has life ever spontaneously "combusted" here on Earth? (assuming it did it once, why not more than once?)

For another, some Christian based science (I forget who did it) found that instead of maybe ten (extremely rare) essential elements for a planet in a solar system to sustain life, they found more like 200 (and still counting). So the odds increased exponentially to the millionth degree, or some such.

Life comes from life ... God (or lets just say a higher power?) created what we humans cannot comprehend?

I have 9k watts of panels ... but we get maybe half the sun SW USA gets. And I only have $1000 of batteries. Cost me about $16K total, self installed. I like the security, performs well, handles all my AC easily, not all my heat in winter. ...

Solar mostly does not "work out" for much of the country, even if full subsidies are applied. But if the security from possible brownouts or blackouts is important, it is worth the effort for many self reliant types. imo.

425 Then there's the problem of the origin of life itself. The simplest life on Earth, cyanobacteria, requires about 800 different proteins to function, each being a precise sequence of dozens or hundreds of amino acids in a polymer chain.

Biology theorists figure that an extremely primitive life form might get by with just 200 proteins, but no less.

How do 200 proteins come into being at the same place and time, and begin to function together?

The Horde Mind is a puddle of liquid Mercury on an infinitely large flat tray.

If one assumes all the constituents of that Mind were gathered into a single pool to begin with, the large number of disputable points to drive them apart are little hammers that smash onto the puddle and that drives portions of it out to another region of the flat tray. From there, those constituents might be smahed yet again to create more distant little puddles ... or back to the largest, but reduced, puddle still back at the origin region.

Had I my Kenner Analogy Builder set from the mid-60s, I might be fool enough to drive this nonsense further, but, thankfully, I do not.

Do I have that right?

Claims his current conviction if for crimes he committed while an informant, because if he didn't engage in criminal activity while in prison, affiliated with the mexican gang, they might have assumed something was fishy. And they convicted him anyway.

"The FAA plans to launch a public outreach effort to replenish its drone registration system, which this year has experienced a 50% decline in the number of people who have registered or renewed registrations of their aircraft.

Between December 2020 and this January, the total number of recreational flyers who had registered their drones through the FAA’s online system and commercial-registered drone aircraft fell from 1,746,248 to 873,144."

Folks watched people burn cities down, attack and murder cops, attack and murder business owners, etc., and nothing happened to them. Bailed out immediately, and murderers serving no time.

Normal people watching that sort of thing began to wonder why they should need to jump through hoops to fly their plastic toy, and decided they would also live outside the law.

"But despite several recent years of low extents, the long-term trend for sea ice in southern polar waters is essentially flat," the NASA Earth Observatory said.
Scambos agrees, noting that A23a came from a part of Antarctica that is fairly stable.
"These big icebergs are spectacular, but they're just the way Antarctica works. This is how an ice sheet works. It gathers snow, and the snow thickens and flows off into the ocean, and then pieces break off. And in Antarctica, those pieces are really, really large," he said.
"But the more important thing for people to be aware of is that Antarctica in other places is losing ice very rapidly," Scambos said, describing a dynamic that contributes to rising sea levels.

Antarctic ice is stable, this iceberg is totally normal, but panic because we are rapidly losing Antarctic sea ice. Gotta pay alms to the church of climate change.

Oddly enough, Turscak is a former FBI informant!!

Coincidence? I don’t think so.

Seems like a coordinated effort to kill Chauvin.

“Turscak told investigators that he attacked Chauvin on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, as a symbolic connection to the Black Lives Matter movement and the "Black Hand" symbol associated with the Mexican Mafia gang, prosecutors said.”

A Woman Palestinian protester draped in a Palestinian flag has set themselves on fire with gasoline outside a building in Atlanta Georgia that houses the Israeli consulate on Friday afternoon. Both the protester and a security guard were hospitalized with burns. The police are investigating the incident as arson and describe it as an extreme act of political protest. The security guard sustained burns on his wrist and leg, while the protester is in critical condition with third-degree burns.

181 Lovely picture of Quebec City. It's worth a visit, if anyone is wondering.

A funny thing about French-Canadians... they have a swear, Tabarnak. I have asked French-Canadians what this word means, and not one has ever answered me. They always say "no... that's a bad word..." I have pressed them further, admitting I know it's a bad word, but what does it mean. They all just repeat "Oh no... that's a bad word..."

Google tells me it's a swear relating to the church. I get it. But if you have a chance, ask a French Canadian what the word means. The response is actually kind of funny.

187 Back in 2016, an independent game company released a moderately successful video named Firewatch. It is a true walking simulator. The story concerns a guy with personal problems who takes a job as a firewatcher in Wyoming's Shoshone National Forest to get away from it all. Game play consists of you walking through the forest from your fire tower to some other location where you do park ranger type stuff. The forest video quality is pretty good for eight years. Along the way, you run into a mystery involving missing people. I thought it was a good, relaxing, interesting game.

So now that Old Man Winter is upon us, the winery /restaurant where my.daughter works has slowed way down and she has more time to kill. I thought she might like this game so I tried to buy it for her. This game that I paid maybe $15 for several years ago, now can't be bought for love or money! Well, actually it can be bought for $200. I was like, "Da fuq?!!!"

A 5 minute review for anyone interested.

201 I have a state law I want to argue all the way to the State Supreme Court.

My vehicle has one headlight that works only on high beam. I've been told in the past that it is illegal to operate on high beam (which I do, to avoid getting a ticket for having headlight out) inside municipalities in Tennessee.

But because of the discoloration and age of my headlight covers, my high beams are actually dimmer than most new cars' low beams.

When and if I am ticketed, I intend to appeal the repair order issued to me on the grounds that operating a vehicle with high beams on can't be construed as a traffic hazard merely because the switch in the vehicle is set to high, it would have to be based on an objective standard of candlepower measurements.

And, Lord willing, I will see this oppressive law stricken from the books in the name of liberty.

It isn't used as a slang word for anything else but to swear using it back in the 1960s and earlier when Quebec was practicing was a very bad swearword like saying "Jesus f#cking Christ" for example in English.

Thanks - that translation makes sense. It is still funny to watch old-timer French Canadians when you ask them what it means though.

I had a friend in VT having some work done on his plumbing in his basement... the plumber was definitely French Canadian, so he asked him what it meant. The guy just said "Oh no... that's a bad word."

Later in the week he heard a huge crash in his basement along with other noises. The plumber came stomping up the stairs. My friend, with an excited, expectant expression, asked him "Tabarnak?"

The plumber angrily replied "Oui, Tabarnak!"

251 The "Mothers" brand headlight polishing and restoration kit is, next to new replacement headlights, the best solution.

'Cause it uses a series of abrasive compounds on a polishing head (powered by your drill motor), to cut through the thousandth of an inch or so of oxidized polycarbonate that you see as "haze". Gets down to fresh, new-looking plastic, which will last almost as long as new headlights.

But if your girfriends' High Beams in question? I'd set the air conditioning to 50f, and let things simply follow the course of nature.

253 4 The problem with high beams is not that they are brighter, it is that they are focused higher/ further down the road.


That can't be the measuring stick.

A lifted truck with low beams on hits the oncoming traffic at a different angle than say something like a Corvette.

If it were the angle of the light, then semi trucks would be ticketed for having light at too elevated an angle.

Low beams are directed down, and slightly to the right, so as not to dazzle the eyes of drivers in oncoming vehicles. High beams are directed straight down the road, and parallel to the road surface. And yes, vehicles with headlights much higher than your sightline may dazzle you on low beam, but it is usually transitory. Being dazzled by high beams can endure for a while because the beam is parallel to the road, so an oncoming vehicle stays in the hot spot for some period of time.

Five Years After the Nasty Race Crime Hoax That Further Divided the Country, Jussie Smollett Is Finally Going to Jail

He went to jail for just six days after being sentenced in 2022, getting a judge to spring him while his appeal was heard.

His appeal has now been heard, and rejected.

So God willing, this nasty sissy racist is headed to jail.

It's only a 150 day sentence, but he really, really, REALLY does not want to go.

I sure hope he doesn't suffer any mental breakdowns or anything.

"I am NOT suicidal."

Hope you don't become suicidal in jail, you gape-assed racist bitch.

I'm sending out a Long Distance Dedication to Jussie, courtesy of the Philips Sisters and Carnie Wilson.

She is from a litter of a stray that was finally rescued and spayed after giving birth. Mama had four kittens, two grey tabbies, a brown one and a tan tabby. They all have spots almost like a Bengal. Just gorgeous kittens. I brought home the tan female.

She's three months old now. Still hasn't grown into her ears, which is adorable. Her name is Izzy.


I had two male tabbies for 14 and 16 years. Lost the last one to FKD at the beginning of the year. So this is replacement cat.

BBC radio star says he struggles with being around "too many white colleagues" at work.

Why are you bigots colonizing him with your mere existence?!!?

BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Nihal Arthanayake has said an overwhelmingly "white" working environment is affecting his mental health.

The presenter told a journalism diversity conference on Wednesday: "It's really affecting me that I walk in and all I see is white people."

His colleagues' response when he told them this was to reply defensively that they were not being racist, he claimed, as he added that this was missing the point.


Speaking at the Journalism Diversity Fund (JDF) conference at BBC Media City in Salford, he said: "I've seen a lot of people leave this building because they couldn't deal with the culture."

He also said others found they had to try to be a certain type of person to progress with the broadcaster, adding: "If you want journalists to progress, they have to be who they are."

"I don't think there's a single Muslim involved in the senior editorial processes" at BBC Radio 5 Live, he added.

He went on: "The hardest thing is to walk into a room, look around and nobody looks like you."

Keep that in mind -- and the constant completely false claims of a "trans genocide" -- as you read this.

'Bomb the churches': Trans-identified man indicted for threats to sexually assault Christian girls

Court docs: Suspect identified as 'open pedophile,' vowed 'many more and larger attacks on Christians'

By Ian M. Giatti, Christian Post Reporter Monday, November 27, 2023


A trans-identified Illinois man and alleged self-described "pedophile" is facing charges for making social media threats to sexually assault Christian girls and commit copycat attacks similar to the attack at a Christian school in Tennessee earlier this year.

Jason Lee Willie of Nashville, Illinois, was charged Nov. 7 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois with 14 felony counts of interstate communication of a threat to injure, according to a federal indictment.

The threats, which are dated between March and August, include repeated references to Christians, black Americans, the Republican Party, and others.

Among the alleged threats cited in the indictment are threats to "bomb the churches": "...We're gonna bomb them, we're gonna bomb them. We're gonna bomb the churches. We're gonna bomb them. You know it. We're going to kill you..."


In an online video, Willie -- who also goes by "Alexia N. Willie," according to court documents -- made reference to "Christian trash," adding, "They're transphobic, they're homophobic, they're no different than the [expletive] white supremacists...."

The indictment alleges Willie also frequently used racial epithets and threatened to target anyone "with a cross around your neck."

Prosecutors say Willie also specifically mentioned harming children, with online video threats such as, "...We're coming for your children. We're not going to hurt you. We're not going to hurt you.

"You have to understand, I know how to get to you, and that's by [pounds fist into palm twice for emphasis] f--- your children. By hurting your children. And that's exactly what we're going to do."

In August, Willie made an online video in which he allegedly said, "Well, I guarantee I'll be in the bathroom raping your Christian daughters and there ain't nothing you f-- can do about it. You hear me?"

According to prosecutors, in another August video, Willie appeared to identify himself as a pedophile when he graphically described sexual abuse toward "little girls" and said, "You guys can't do nothing about it. I don't care, I'm openly a pedo. I'm openly a pedophile ..."

The left really is inciting its most lunatic members to shoot up schools to avenge non-existent "trans genocide."

But if you say you'd like to see immigration limited from countries with a culture of honor killings and terrorism, you're engaged in "stochastic terrorism."

And by the way: They've scheduled another "Trans Day of Revenge" for December 8. So when the next trans lunatic drunk on lies about "trans genocide" and the murder rate of trans people being genocidally high (in fact, they're murdered at a rate lower than that of the general population), you know who to thank.

From the Iowa Standard:

Leftists at the University of Iowa are preparing for a "Trans Day of Revenge" according to fliers advertising the Dec. 8 event. The fliers were shared by the conservative group Young Americans Foundation.

Following Chloe Cole's presentation at the University of Iowa in October, multiple protestors were arrested for blocking traffic outside the event. Cole is a victim of radical gender ideology. She is a detransitioner. You can read about her presentation here.

In response to police enforcing the law, leftists are using a flyer of a masked figure beating Herky the Hawk with a spiked bat to push the Dec. 8 "Trans Day of Revenge" event. The flier instructs attendees to cover their face and hair.

Question: Given that the left is constantly demanding that Elon Musk censor "dangerous misinformation" -- shouldn't we pressure Musk to begin censoring lies about a "trans genocide"? Karine Jean-Pierre just pushed this dangerous misinformation this week.

There Is No 'Trans Genocide'


Transgender activists and supporters protest potential changes by the Trump administration in federal guidelines issued to public schools in defense of transgender student rights near the White House in Washington, D.C., February 22, 2017.

By Wilfred Reilly

November 27, 2023 6:30 AM

Why do respected institutions continue to propound verifiably wrong conspiracy theories about how dangerous America is?

It is around 35 times more dangerous to be black than to be transgender in America -- and at least an order of magnitude more dangerous to be a young and working-class white guy, a Southerner, or a Yank of Hispanic origin.

This seems relevant given that a national event titled "Transgender Day of Remembrance" took place just a few days ago. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre took the occasion to mount the podium for a formal press briefing attended by many national media outlets -- during which she declared that the United States "grieves" for the all of 26 transgender Americans killed in 2023. These victims, Jean-Pierre went on to emphasize, were no mere Dead White Males but "disproportionately black women and women of color."


...

The only catch is that no such systemic violence exists. According to Jean-Pierre herself -- and, presumably, to an LGBT-rights group with every interest in magnifying the phenomenon -- the total number of trans-identified Americans known to have been killed in 2023 is 26. If we round that up to 30 (to account for December) and assume that just 1 percent of the U.S. population is trans (given that, as one very limited survey shows, around 3 percent of young Americans are), we obtain an annual transgender-murder rate of 30 in 3.32 million, or just 0.9 people per 100,000 people. Even if we, alternatively, assume an American trans population of just 1.6 million -- to gel with one high-quality but conservative recent estimate -- the resulting murder rate would be merely 1.9 per 100,000 people.

To put that in context, the murder rate for blacks in the U.S. is currently 30--33 per 100,000 people. The African-American community is an outlier but not necessarily a remarkable one: In a representative recent year, 4.5 percent of black-male deaths were the results of homicide, versus 2.3 percent for American Indians, 2.2 percent for Hispanics, 2 percent for Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders . . . and 4.9 percent for all whites under full majority. To say the obvious, all of these groups are currently living far more dangerously than "trans women."


Further, almost none of the small number of murders of trans people recorded in 2023 were due to "transphobia" from the MAGA-hat set. According to an excellent breakdown posted to social media by writer Pi Campbell, the "victims" highlighted by the Human Rights Campaign included such citizens as Banko Brown (the San Francisco thief/robber shot during a confrontation with a security guard), Manuel "Tortuguita" Terán (an armed environmental activist killed during a shootout with Atlanta police during the violent Stop Cop City protests), and DéVonnie J'Rae Johnson (a trans woman who attacked a security officer with a fire extinguisher).

Others on the list were Maria Jose Rivera -- killed in a tragic and widely publicized murder-suicide involving her boyfriend -- Camdyn Rider (murder-suicide with husband), Thomas "Tom-Tom" Robertson (victim of a shooting targeting someone else), and a black trans fashion plate called "YOKO" (hit by an SUV while piloting a small scooter). So far as I can tell, not one proven or even seriously alleged hate crime appears anywhere on the Human Rights Campaign's list.

In addition, it's not Evil White MAGA Men killing this tiny number of murdered trans "women."


I will note that this point has been made previously by the skilled gonzo journalist Andy Ngo, who earned a few weeks of internet infamy in 2019 for digging into a series of anti-trans attacks and summing up his resulting data set as: "Who is behind the murders? Mostly Black men." That year, I made some of the same points detailed above for the magazine Quillette: pointing out that the annual number of trans fatalities was around 29, and that this broke down to a grand total of one killing for every 67,690 transgender Americans.


Karine Jean-Pierre has a habit of stochastic terrorism. Just before the Trans Terrorist shot up a Nashville school, this bitch announced that trans people were "fierce" and "fight back."

She did not disappoint us after the slaughter: After a transgender lunatic murdered children and their teachers, she announced "Our hearts go out to the trans community..."

When asked if she would be inviting the families of the victims of the Trans Terrorists to the White House -- a photo op and propaganda opportunity the White House extends to all victims of crimes it believes will advance its political agenda -- Karine Jean-Pierre was dumbfounded that the question would even be asked, and scrambled to toss a word salad.

The left's insane rhetoric of hatred inspires leftists to commit acts of violence all the time.

But this isn't stochasitic terrorism.

This is just The Plan.

And to be honest, you can stop trying to convince us to boycott you, Target. You had us at "tuck-friendly children's bathing suits."

Cosmo is actually promoting Satanic cermonies to empower women who get abortions.


Of course:

A TikTok influence defends not only Hamas' terrorism, but urges American blacks to kill children to free themselves from "oppression" as well.

Note that Disney is advertising on TikTok. In fact, it's not even a question that all corporations will advertise on a Chinese intelligence controlled platform that encourages actual violent terrorism against hated races.

Unfortunately for him, he has the same lawyers who consult for GOPe politicians.

His SCOTUS suite was not about wrongful conviction, it was about the length of his sentence.

SCOTUS would almost never get involved with something like that unless there were severe extenuating circumstances, which Chauvin's lawyers did not present to the court.

* Bought a box of Star Wars Legion miniatures to see if they were any good (they're okay, but nobody plays the game because Asmodee/Atomic Mass killed FFG's golden goose)
* Occasionally see bits and pieces of Marvel movies at other people's houses and on airplanes
* Bought a Pirates Of The Caribbean DVD at the used-media store a while back

101 >>> That term is "stochastic terrorism." The idea is that right-leaning people aren't allowed to express their opinions because there's a risk, statistically speaking, that any opinion uttered could possibly maybe hypothetically spur an unhinged person to commit an act of violence.

I was under the impression that "stochastic" was just a 50 cent word for "random".
The correlation between right 'wing nut' speech and right wing nut stochastic terrorism is about zilch. Especially if the perp is examined after the fact.
The correlation between left wing nut speech and left wing nut stochastic terrorism is somewhat above zilch. Especially after the recent 'summer of love'. Examing the perp after the fact shows about 80%+ correlation. AND, they are pften 'know to police'.

This concern of yet again a case of transference - blaming the political enemy of exactly what they are doing. Seems to be a pattern.

She is an arrogant law-breaker, too. She's been violating the Hatch Act again, the Act that she tells reporters she is always mindful of when refusing to answer questions about Joe's campaign. From DM today-

https://tinyurl.com/mtrxxhyt

"White House spokespeople Karine Jean-Pierre and Andrew Bates violated the Hatch Act when they had been warned against using the word 'MAGA' to describe certain Republicans, a government watchdog agency said on Friday.

The independent Office of Special Counsel said the two took actions 'contrary' to official guidance on the law when they slammed 'MAGA' Republicans' budget plan this year.

In their letter, first reported by NBC News, the office notes the violations came days after Jean-Pierre was warned she had violated the law intended to prevent federal employees from using their offices to influence elections.

This summer, the Office of Special Counsel notified government officials that 'MAGA' and similar terms were effectively off-limits.

122 So, this guy, who in my admittedly unqualified cis-het-dude opinion was a handsome man, is unhappy with who he is and what he looks like, so he begins the ordeal of reshaping himself into a hopelessly unappealing woman.

And in the *meantime,* he's getting sober? I dunno, I think my strategy would have been more sequential, just to be safe. Start with the sobriety.

Though I guess it's turned out all right for him. I guess.

It is a science term. So if you react two chemicals, they will achieve equilibrium but there will be random reactions back and forth. It is like Brownian motion of particles, or thermal noise in electronics -- two related terms you may be familiar with. Things that happen randomly because there is a distribution of energy, etc.

The idea is that if you have a population of nutters and add a little hate, a few will pop off -- stochastic terrorism.

stochastic
n adjective technical having a random probability distribution or pattern that can be analyzed statistically but not predicted precisely.

DERIVATIVES

C17: from Greek stokhastikos, from stokhazesthai 'aim at, guess', from stokhos 'aim'.

yeah, so they can't quantify (?) an exact response from one nutter to some one statement ... so they just claim any response is due to any (only white supremacist) cumulative statements.

I learned the word in stock charting ... not sure the exact math they use to determine "fast stochastics" and "slow stochastics", but when they cross it supposedly indicates a trend change. ...

Is This Something?

Godzilla Minus One, set shortly after World War II and offering a new "first appearance" of Gojira, is getting very good reviews. Alachai Queen raves and Film Threat calls it the best Godzilla movie ever made. They all seem to agree that the human story in the movie is very good.

Another movie coming out soon is the Angel Studios production The Shift. It's confirmed that "The Benefactor" is the devil. The story is a sci-fi retelling of the Book of Job. Greg Owens gave it a good review but added this caution: The movie doesn't signal well enough that the beginning is supposed to be confusing not just for the main character but for the audience. If you don't realize the movie intends you to be confused, you'll feel like you've missed something. But you haven't; the movie just didn't signal its intention well enough. He advises to just accept that you're going to be confused in the early-going and everything will make sense sometime in the second act.

Tom Collins at Midnight's Edge was a little frustrated because the movie wears it Christianity on its sleeve, and he thinks that if had just trusted more in subtext than explicit reference, the film could have been a breakout hit with mainstream viewers not even realizing they were watching a the Book of Job in sci-fi trappings.

By the way, the actor playing "The Benefactor" in that movie was cancelled for a few years by Hollywood for refusing to do a sex scene.

He also did that funny Cadillac commercial in 2014.


Opening today on the Daily Wire: Lady Ballers, a comedy about men playing women in basketball by pretending to be "trans." Which is itself mostly pretend, anyway.

Rita Pahini notes that the left is (as usual) having conniptions about the movie, but points out that Dylan Mulvaney mocks women in his own gender LARPing. A scene from the movie showing a man pretending to be a woman is taken directly from Dylan Mulvaney's "365 Days of Girlhood."


So here's a movie I'd definitely like to see. It's pretty much a Cafe in movie form.

Here's one that will spark some dissent. On one hand, Hollywood's attacking the Man-O-Verse, and so you know going in this is going to be stupid.

On the other hand, many, many thrillers make hay out of a Current Thing, hyperbolizing it, exaggerating it to the breaking point, and then sticking a murder plot into it, and it sometimes works.

(Remember when George Bush was president and Low-Information Voters heard for the first time that Skull and Bones is an organization that exists in the world and within a couple of years we had like three different teen thrillers based on Skull and Bones?)

Didn't they just make a movie about the toxic parts of highly-masculine warrior culture called The Art of Self-Defense? And didn't that movie also star Jesse Eisenberg as a humiliated, emasculated nerd looking to gain strength and self-respect, but who gets taken in by an intense but charismatic psychopath building an empire on the dead bodies of his followers?

Yeah they just did make that movie. (It was pretty decent.)

All thrillers have the exact same plot. They just differ according to what Current Thing is causing psychological sress to a certain critical mass of the population (say, around 10% of all moviegoers) and can be profitably exploited by adding a couple of murders to it. And I like a lot of them.

Daisy Ridley got pretty screwed by agreeing to be in Kaffeine Kennedy's trashfire Star Wars movies. She's barely in anything now. Hopefully she's good in this and can escape the stench of Lucasfilm.

Not sure about this family-of-pro-wrestlers movie The Iron Claw. The trailer only hints at the dark nature of the story -- five of the six brothers died young, and most of them died by their own hands.

I predict this movie about the GameStop Stonk play will piss me off. Seth Rogen's in it, for starters.


This looks kind of funny. But it's on Peacock, so it might as well be playing on Neptune.

26 Considering the rash of stories about computer effect people unionizing and such, I doubt animators are treated that much better.

The one guy who shows up on Corridor Crew's channel for Animator's React does still work for Disney, but he seems to be some kind of contractor or just works part of the time for them because he has, like, three other jobs, including his own independent studio.
Posted by: TheJamesMadison, celebrating anarchy and 50s B-movies with Joe Dante at December 01, 2023 04:39 PM (GBKbO)

I'm sure in the normal past animators put in a lot of effort on movies and worked hella hours. But these days with movies rewritten and resculped down to the last second there's lots of frantic 24 hour panic demands on them to try and patch up the disaster that they made by not planning in the first place.

54 "I predict this movie about the GameStop Stonk play will piss me off. "

idk details of that, but there is a lot of "passive investing" (which has different definitions) where people just poor a percent of the paycheck in every week or two. The players count on the flow and manage to front run, or other wise game those funds.

My guess is that is the reason the markets keep going up in the face of all the real problems. There is also the "climb a wall of worry" theory, which doesn't make sense to me but kinda works.

But a company that was cash/asset rich could not just sit and make a profit, it had to put those assets "to work", or it became a takeover target (like Sears, I think, taken over by bankrupt K-Mart). Weird games by the elite hedge fund manipulators, and the bankers. GameStop Movie maybe reveals that, idk.

73 , here's my idea for a screenplay, "The Transaction."

Strap in. This'll take a few posts to lay out...

Jason Momoa is a regular family guy but he drives a Lambo and he's secretly gay on the side and he's whoring out on Grindr.

He hooks up with some "hot young dude" but it turns out he's getting catfished by Liam Neeson. He's all "no way, old man, leave me alone," but Liam gets obsessed with him, and goes all Fatal Attraction on him, and he drives a Porsche 911 GTS and he's also a retired CIA agent.

Jason gets tired of Liam threatening his suburban white-picket-fence charade of a lifestyle, so he runs his Porsche off the Brooklyn Bridge in an adrenaline-pumping Michael Bay style chase scene. He thinks Liam's dead now but he's totally not.

Liam uses his spycraft to fully transition to a comely hussy, both to disguise himself as he hunts Momoa, and to seduce the sexually confused husband and father. These motives become hopelessly entwined in a really artistic way.

They fall in love and kill the wife together in a tranq-fuelled hammer attack, and live out their shared dream of robbing banks to raise funds for BLM (you can also donate to BLM too with a QR code in the credits)...

The hard bitten NYPD homicide detective who links the conscience-shocking double murder to the string of BLM-related heists will be played by Ben Stiller.

He's a renegade cop who plays by his own rules, and isn't afraid to break them. When the FBI agent (Denzel Washington) assigned to the bank jobs tries to claim jurisdiction over Stiller's murder, he just goes rogue.

His unsanctioned investigation uncovers Denzel as the conspiratorial link between BLM and the non-cishet duo of thrill-killers...

All three of them die, but Denzel escapes with the Lamborghini full of cash. In the denouement, he stands at the spot where Momoa originally ran Neeson off the bridge.

He peers through a pair of binoculars at a gay party cruise boat gliding down the river under a BLM flag, and he knows all the sacrifice was worth it. As he walks into the sunset, the Brooklyn Bridge explodes in the background.

Geena Davis is totally the manic pixie dreamgirl there. I thought it was the earliest pronounced version of that kind of female character specifically I'd seen. Of course, available and attractive women have been ready to fall in love with the male main character have been a thing in movies forever, but the whole, "I'm crazy and not normal and in love with you" vibe like Natalie Portman in Garden State is so...specific.

102 I like Neal McDonaugh. He was excellent as Buck Compton in Band of Brothers.

But it's a sign of the times that he is scolded for *not* doing a sex scene. We live in the Upside Down.

The ones who mentioned sure. But there have been many great actors that can play different types of characters well. Off the top of my head Michael Caine is one of the better ones. Leo Decaprio I think is a great actor, lots of really different characters played well.

109 I was watching some nominated Best Picture movies, and I came across The Accidental Tourist from 1988, written and directed by Lawrence Kasdan.

Geena Davis is totally the manic pixie dreamgirl there. I thought it was the earliest pronounced version of that kind of female character specifically I'd seen. Of course, available and attractive women have been ready to fall in love with the male main character have been a thing in movies forever, but the whole, "I'm crazy and not normal and in love with you" vibe like Natalie Portman in Garden State is so...specific.

Highly recommended

Posted by: Equate at December 01, 2023 05:04 PM (NF5Gd)

122 Didn't they just make a movie about the toxic parts of highly-masculine warrior culture called The Art of Self-Defense? And didn't that movie also star Jesse Eisenberg as a humiliated, emasculated nerd looking to gain strength and self-respect, but who gets taken in by an intense but charismatic psychopath building an empire on the dead bodies of his followers?

Isn't that basically the plot of "Fight Club", without the twist?

It was about not kissing or having fake sex with any other woman on camera b/c he's married to his wife. It's why he got typecast as villain, apparently, b/c they tend to kiss or make out with other folks on camera.

Pretty good scene where he basically explains how he got that way. Acted it very well. You think it's a moment of catharsis, but he only uses it to manipulate his way out of being killed, then he turns the young man who was about to kill him into his next sexual torture victim.

Real nasty villain.

You have to keep people interested, you can't fit everything in the series and it has to make us care about the characters.

199 Godzilla Minus One

Very good. I liked it. Definitely a recommend. It's not actually a remake of the original but has elements of the original.

It's about a kamikaze pilot who pusses out and while he's on a small atoll used by the Japanese to repair planes, a small Godzilla about the size of a T-Rex attacks and kill everyone but him and one other guy. He eventually gets home at war's end. His family is dead, his neighbor's family is dead and he meets a girl whose entire family is dead but is carrying a child that's not hers...cuz her family is dead.

Small Godzilla is eventually irradiated at Bikini Atoll and turns into big Godzilla. Big Godzilla eventually goes on the rampage.


It's very good. There's a fair amount of decent character drama involving the pilot and the girl he meets. He's struggling with inner turmoil about not fulfilling his duty to waste his life. The destruction is pretty cool. Ginza gets torn to shit. Godzilla lumbers around fairly slowly but his atomic fire breath is really cool the way his spikes pop out while he's "charging."

I'd have to watch it again but I feel that this is overall one of the better Godzilla movies in the series.

241 When you look at Wahlberg he's one of the most underrated actors today. He does everything well, but never gets the credit of similar actors that actually suck at everything they do (like Ben Affleck) Sure he's probably not going to play Marlon Brando or Carey Grant type roles, but id take him in almost any Hollywood type movie over the crap out actors out there today.

Like Neal McDonough, he's held back because he's not afraid of being extremely pro-Christian, which means he basically had to produce and get private funding for everything he does.

McDonough is another great actor, I've heard from people who have worked with him that he's also a genuinely nice guy.

Health NEWZZZZ

I understand where vegetarians are coming from, as far as not wanting to consume cute little animals.

But... it's just not healthy to eat a diet without meat.

Cremieux
@cremieuxrecueil

To date, there's only been one large study of the effects of a vegetarian diet on the sex ratio of newborns, and it was consistent with vegetarian mothers suffering from malnutrition.

vegetarianmalnutrition.jpg

The paper found that vegetarian women gave birth to fewer boys than women with a normal non-vegan died did. The authors believe that this may be the result of more spontaneous abortions -- miscarriages -- affecting more male fetuses than female ones.

This is not a great advertisement for the nutritional bounty of a vegan diet.

The paper is linked in this tweet.

Scientific American: We reject scientific rigor in favor of Liberal Ways of Knowing.


Scientific American, which dates to 1845 and touts itself as "the oldest continuously published magazine in the United States," recently ran an article arguing that scientists should prioritize "reality" over scientific "rigor." What would make a publication with a name like this one set empirical evidence at odds with reality? Masks, of course.

Naomi Oreskes, a Harvard professor of the history of science, argued that by "prioritizing scientific rigor" in its mask studies, the Cochrane Library may have "misled the public," such that "the average person could be confused" about the efficacy of masks. Oreskes criticized Cochrane for its "standard . . . methodological procedures," as Cochrane bases its "findings on randomized controlled trials, often called the 'gold standard' of scientific evidence." Since RCTs haven't shown that masks work, she writes, "[i]t's time those standard procedures were changed."

City Journal contributing editor John Tierney called Cochrane "the world's largest and most respected organization for evaluating health interventions." A recent Cochrane review found that "[w]earing masks in the community probably makes little or no difference to the outcome of influenza-like illness (ILI)/COVID-19 like illness"--or "to the outcome of laboratory-confirmed influenza/SARS-CoV-2"--"compared to not wearing masks." The review also found that "use of a N95/P2 respirators compared to medical/surgical masks probably makes little or no difference" for the "outcome of laboratory‐confirmed influenza infection."

While Oreskes asserts that Cochrane's findings were made with "low to moderate" certainty, each of the findings quoted above was made with "moderate certainty," the second-highest of four certainty classifications. "Moderate certainty," Cochrane notes, means that "the true effect is likely to be close to the estimate of the effect." The Cochrane review's lead author, Oxford's Tom Jefferson, said of masks in a subsequent interview with Australian investigative journalist Maryanne Demasi, "There is just no evidence that they make any difference. Full stop."

In response, Oreskes claimed that "[t]he Cochrane finding was not that masking didn't work but that scientists lacked sufficient evidence of sufficient quality to conclude that they worked." She continues, "Jefferson erased that distinction, in effect arguing that because the authors couldn't prove that masks did work, one could say that they didn't work. That's just wrong." But Jefferson didn't simply say that masks don't work; he said there's "no evidence" they work. The burden of proof should be on the side of those advocating a medical intervention. Without remotely having met that burden, Oreskes asserts that masks do work. Cochrane, she writes, "gave the false impression that masking didn't help."

In fact, 16 RCTs have tested whether masks effectively reduce the spread of viruses. Not one has found compelling evidence that they do. Two have found statistically significant evidence that masks are counterproductive--that they increase the spread of viruses--probably because masks are frequently moist or dirty, and people often touch them.

...

Surgical masks were designed to protect patients from having open wounds infected by medical personnel, not to prevent the spread of viruses.

...

Oreskes argues that "Cochrane has made this mistake"--the mistake of basing its findings on medical evidence--"before." In 2011, a Cochrane review found little evidence that flossing prevents gum disease. Subsequently, the Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services struck flossing from their joint dietary guidelines. The Associated Press then reviewed 25 medical studies and came to the same conclusion as Cochrane. According to the New York Times, "the American Academy of Periodontology acknowledged that most of the current evidence fell short," in part because researchers hadn't been able to "examine gum health over a significant amount of time."

Oreskes cites the lack of strong medical evidence supporting flossing to suggest that if one believes in flossing, one must also believe in masks.

If you believe in one thing the science does not support, you must believe in all things that the science doesn't support.

Also, Cochrane actually found that flossing does work, when combined with toothbrushing.

...

In a way, Oreskes has provided a public service with her article, as has Scientific American in running it. The article makes clear how willing mask advocates are to sacrifice scientific objectivity on the altar of their newfound religion.

America saw its highest levels of suicide, ever, in 2022.

Let's Go Brandon!

The number of suicides in the United States has hit a record high, new provisional federal data shows.

In 2022, an estimated 49,449 people died by suicide, which is 3% higher than the 48,183 people who died in 2021, according to a report published early Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics.

The suicide rate increased by 1% in 2022 to 14.3 deaths per 100,000 from 14.1 per 100,000 in 2021, marking this as the highest rate seen since 1941, according to the report.

The authors said when the final data for 2022 is collected, they expect the number of suicides to likely be higher as additional death certificates with pending causes of death are ruled as deaths by suicide.

Adding to the nation's levels of depression and anxiety? Higher "education."

Depression and anxiety rates higher among college students than their peers, new study suggests


Experts discuss what can be done to 'remove barriers' and boost college students' mental health

By Melissa Rudy


College students may be at a greater risk of experiencing depression and anxiety compared to young people who are not in higher education, according to a new study published in The Lancet Public Health.

Researchers from University College London analyzed data from two studies.

...

Based on multiple surveys the young people completed about their mental health, there was a small, elevated risk for depression and anxiety among the students compared to the non-students. There was an approximate 6% difference in risk between the two groups.

A Millennial woman claims she's invented a new health practice: Walking in silence so that one can hear one's own thoughts.

What an innovation!

15 A good friend was a vegetarian until she got pregnant. Twin boys. She said her body wouldn't let her walk past meat without drooling and looking to eat it where she used to dislike it. I'm sure her boys are thrilled she didn't have more discipline in her dietary choices.

17 But Jefferson didn't simply say that masks don't work; he said there's "no evidence" they work. The burden of proof should be on the side of those advocating a medical intervention. Without remotely having met that burden, Oreskes asserts that masks do work. Cochrane, she writes, "gave the false impression that masking didn't help."

Looking in a mirror the wrong way can cause a miscarriage of a boy. That's why a healthy society has a 105:100 ratio. Boys just don't survive the womb as easily as girls.

There's a substream of videos of leftists trying to show off their vegetarian pets like dogs.

I remember one where she was very vocal about how her dog hated meat, and she proved it by putting out a bowl of greens and then opened a can of dog food with meat in it. As she's explaining how the dog doesn't want the meat, the dog is leaping over her to get the meat.

It's almost like leftists believe things that are provably false about the real world and are easily manipulated into stupid things that go against basic common sense.

You can wipe your ass with this study. Tiny sample size and overwhelmingly one racial demographic. What about age?

I suspect this is the kind of study where correlation doesn't equal causation. I'll almost guarantee you that these white vegetarians were the typical older, mentally-ill, hysterical Karens and virtue-signalers that defile every fucking thing they touch. Is is a surprise they also suck at birthing? They would suck even if they were not vegetarian.

The body needs what it needs, and changes your tastes and preferences to match. Sometimes this is bad - nicotine and sugar, for example - but it's a core operation.

I have occasionally been iron deficient. How do I know that? Because I start craving - strongly, in a way that will not be denied - liverwurst. I can't stand the stuff under normal conditions, but when I get cravings for it, those cravings *must* be satisfied. I'll eat it until I start hating it again. Balance: restored.

110 I used to work in an office with a bunch of 'health nuts.' A couple vegetarians and the rest only ate 'organic' or whatever they felt was healthy. They convinced a younger woman to become a vegetarian. She caved into the peer pressure and did. Slowly she started to look more and more sickly. She became pale, her hair thinned and got stringy.

Then she started to have real health issues. Bad enough to put her out of work for weeks at a time.

After a couple months of this she was too sick to continue working and went home to Canada. I've no idea whatever happened after that. But the transformation of this girl over 6 - 7 months was dramatic.

169 Interesting, the study does go down a path I've long thought. Men just need more meat than women do. It seems obvious, but I don't think anyone has done a study on how much an all-meat diet might hurt women more than men and how much a vegan one might hurt men more than women.
Posted by: Nova Local at December 01, 2023 03:33 PM (exHjb)

Men have more lean muscle than wimmins and they have more fat to create. But I don't see vegetarianism as being much help there (or worse yet veganism). Generic plant stuff has even less fat than lean meat. Probably women could use fattier cuts than men for optimal results. More whole milk or cheeses?

222 Oreskes cites the lack of strong medical evidence supporting flossing to suggest that if one believes in flossing, one must also believe in masks.

The flossing argument drives me nuts.

First, it is expensive and time-consuming to generate valid statistical analyses when it comes to efficacy and side effects. That's part of the reason pharma development is so costly. There's no financial incentive for a far less profitable endeavor like flossing to produce that kind of data about efficacy. And it would like take a huge amount of data of questionable rigor, given that it would be self-reported, to detect any correlations between flossing and better health outcomes.

Second, flossing is purely voluntary. If you don't think it's effective, you can just abstain. Mask wearing was compulsory. If someone wants to force you to do something, they should need some proof that voluntary activity obviously doesn't require.

Third, there are common sense reasons to floss, like getting stuff out of your teeth that is uncomfortable and produces bad breath. Even without hard data, flossing demonstrably does something. The same isn't true of masks.

Lifting M-Sat, chest and triceps mwf, back and biceps tts. 100 sit-ups on back and bicep day and 5 sets of 5 dead hang pull-ups (still need a little help with resistance bands). 20 knee raises and 15 dips on chest/tri day, along with bench, military press and tricep extensions. Feeling really good physically and better every day mentally- mind really does follow the body. All by grace of God, by all rights should be dead.

>>Where else can you get sufficient amount of B-12 other than meat?

A weekly 1000 mg per ML of B12 injected IM would do the trick.

You used to be able to get injectable B12 without a prescription for about 20 bucks per 30ML but then someone in big healthcare got pissed that they were getting cut out and they made it by prescription only and you have to now show a need or they won't prescribe it to you.

Of course you can go to a wellness center and pay 50 bucks a pop for it.

Word is recently that the reduce sodium thing is another food lie, but yes there is a ton of sodium in processed soups.

Make your own, and you can get reduced sodium broths or cut it with water and its pretty easy to do and you can freeze it forever. You can cut into the blandness with peppery tastes, or salt to taste at the table. You just need a medium sized pot and a stove, and it can be done by an inattentive lax cook like me.

it's easier to just let it be a 'nurses myth' than actual study with hard answers.

320 Is it true that cows would go extinct if they weren't raised for slaughter?
Posted by: kallisto


Yes. More indepth:
They cannot really protect themselves from predators. At least not the newborns. Standard breeds, (not the miniature boutique breeds), are not pets. The cost associated with raising them for slaughter is a hair above break even, so if you are willing to spend $1k a year just to raise them for yard art. Add in the cost of land needed for them to live and graze, that you can't do anything else with while they are living on it.

Yeah. It they weren't being raised for slaughter, they would go extinct. Unlike milk cows, goas, & sheep. At least you can get something else from them besides meat.

362 Healing is much more than taking medicine and waiting to get better. It's an entire process you have to manage and it starts with attitude. Diet, is key and that diet should be based on maximizing the foods and nutrients you need to target your specific illness. I've found nutrients from foods work much better then trying to get them though a vitamin. Exercise is also key, and that too should be tailored to your condition and what you need to improve. It also doesn't need to be a marathon or Olympic weightlifting session. It needs to be the right amount for you and your specific situation. Above everything, you need to be dedicated and committed. You need to have a never quit attitude along with hard, but achievable goals. I will tell you that first and foremost prayer and meditation have been the absolute most important ingredients that pulls it all together, provides perspective, and yes, drives your healing process.

384 Let's face it. A kangaroo is not as attractive an animal as in the old Warner Bros. cartoon with Sylvester mistaking a 'roo for a giant mouse. For that matter, koalas have fussy expressions; if you saw that look on a human at a party, you'd steer away from it.

Koalas eat eucalyptus leaves, which are mildly narcotic. So they're always either stoned or coming down off of being stoned. Either way, they're grumpy.

Same deal with sloths and some of the leaves that they eat.

Posted by: Wolfus Aurelius, Dreaming of Elsewhere at December 01, 2023 04:29 PM (J2vNu)

You can buy stock, or make it yourself out of bones and scraps of a cooked chicken carcass. You just need a bigger pot. Stock in stores is fine, and you can buy reduced sodium to lower the baseline. Adding your own meat, bits picked off a chicken, or cut your own veggies just adds to the quality. You can by gelatin powder to thicken your soup too.

Soups and stews are the traditional meal stretcher and its all pretty easy work, just need some bigger pots if you are mass producing it rather than meal to meal.

Quick Hits

After Hamas broke yet another ceasefire by sending terrorists to murder civilians at a bus stop, Israel began pounding Hamas positions.


The Israel Defense Forces resumed its military offensive in the Gaza Strip on Friday after a week-long truce as the Hamas terror group broke the ceasefire, firing rockets into Israel and failing to provide a list of hostages it intended to release by 7 a.m.

In response, the IDF said it was renewing combat seven days after fighting ceased, during which time 105 civilians were released from Hamas captivity in Gaza, including 81 Israelis, 23 Thai nationals, and 1 Filipino, in exchange for 210 Palestinian prisoners, all of them women or minors. Israel also allowed an influx of humanitarian aid into the Strip.

Still held hostage by Gaza terror groups when the truce collapsed were 137 people -- 115 men, 20 women and two children -- government spokesperson Eylon Levy said. Ten of the hostages are 75 and older. The vast majority of the hostages, 126, are Israeli. Eleven are foreign nationals, including eight from Thailand.

Palestinian Health Authorities report that the renewed offensive had destroyed 47 hospitals and has killed 440,000 Palestinian civilians, including 750,000 children and 5 million dogs. Christiane Amanpour was the first American Journalist to report the scoop.


DeSantis had some fun with Gavin Newsom last night. Apparently he just countered Newsom's lies with fact after fact, and even deployed the Poop Map as a prop.

Mocking Newsom's claim that California is "the Freedom State," DeSantis points out that :


DeSantis: "California does have freedoms that other states don't. You have the freedom to defecate in public. You have the freedom to pitch a tent on Sunset Boulevard. You have the freedom to create a homeless camp and even light it on fire. You have the freedom to have an open air drug market and use drugs. You have the freedom if you're an illegal alien to get these taxpayer benefits. So those are freedoms--they're not freedoms our founding fathers envisioned but they have contributed to the destruction of the quality of life in California. People are leaving the state because they have failed to addressing the homeless population."

When Newsom tried to claim that Florida censors school books, DeSantis whipped out a pornographic page from Gender Queer.


Joe Rogan: The Democrats' mad quest to imprison Donald Trump is "Banana Republic tactics."

Zelenskyy: Providing support for Israel hurts Ukraine's war effort.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told the Associated Press in an interview published Friday that "only the blind" cannot see that his country has lost attention and support following the Hamas atrocities against Israel on October 7, which prompted an ongoing war to eradicate the terrorist organization.

Zelensky promised he would "fight for attention" for his war against Russia, particularly in the United States, where he warned "there may be weakness" in the will of Congress to spend more money on weapons for his country.

A counter-protester showed up with... An American flag. Pro-Hamas agitators screamed "alluha ackbar" and tried to rip it from his hands.

They Just Want to Breathe (TM).

Speaking of people who brutalize children: The school shut-downs demanded by the teachers unions have resulted in kids just never coming back to school.


Extreme levels of student absence have spiked in schools across the country since the pandemic began, according to data released Friday by Attendance Works, a nonprofit research initiative.

Why it matters: Students haven't recovered from pandemic learning losses, and widespread absences affect entire schools, not just the missing students.

Nearly 30% of students (14.7 million) were chronically absent during the 2021-22 school year, meaning they missed 10% or more of the year.

What's happening: The figures are more stark for students in schools with higher poverty rates.

Nearly 70% of high-poverty schools experienced chronic absenteeism in 2021-22, up from 25% before the pandemic.

66% of students attended a school with extreme or high levels of chronic absence in 2021-22.

Preliminary 2022-23 data suggests that absences slightly improved the following school year, the New York Times reported.

Threat level: Chronic absenteeism widens inequities, said Hedy Chang, the executive director and president of Attendance Works.

That is quite a racket. The store does all the hard work of sourcing its supplies and transporting them to the market, which requires additional operating costs and maintenance.

Then bums walk in, take whatever they want, and sell the goods on the street in front of the store. No overhead. All profit.

You have the freedom to create a homeless camp *and even light it on fire.* You have the freedom to have an open air drug market and use drugs. You have the freedom if you're an illegal alien to get these taxpayer benefits.

On an individual basis. For example, have their parents recently purchased a signature Hunter Biden painting? If so, they matter. Are their parents high ranking members of the DNC or the bureaucracy - BIRM? They matter.

Are their parents hard working, tax paying, Americans? No, they don't matter.

62 "Seems there are a lot of Western-funded hospitals in a region that is so tiny, eh?"

The "Indonesian Hospital" in Gaza was built over a Hamas Command and Control center, which was improved and hardened when the "hospital" went up. Whoever built or inspected the site, or even visited it would know that. You could not build it without knowing these things. The contributions were laundered through a phony Indonesian organization with government approval. They said those contributions came from "ordinary" Indonesians.

A typically stupid conservative "hot take." Those stores engage in rent-extraction, gouging their impoverished customers by selling goods at unspeakable markups due to noxious mix of corporate greed and structural racism. Many of those stores are in sole control of their markets, oases of goods in what are otherwise deserts.

So long as poverty continues - and especially as poverty grows due to supremacist and other oppressive policies - these "crimes" will continue. Poverty is the root cause of so-called "criminal" behavior, and the structural oppression of the end-stage capitalist system ensures more poverty and thus more "crime" as the poor struggle in conditions forced upon them.

This "crime" is better called or "economic justice." The expropriation without compensation from the oppressive racists at the commanding heights of a corrupt system is nothing more than a contemporary interpretation of Robin Hood. These modern merry men are liberating the ill-gotten gains of oppression and redistributing them. There is nothing "criminal" about that. Until equity prevails, such behavior will continue.

Not really possible anymore due to population shifts. Essentially a conglomeration of different cultures in a very short time period precludes a republican form of government. Simply put, republics require a relatively stable system of what people rank order value in political decisionmaking. Madison mentioned the other possibility which is federalism but that requires decentralization from the current Fed Gov dominance (but can be achieved without a change in the Constitution fairly easily) and a refusal of the fedgov from getting involved in within state policy disputes. Still requires a commonality of the people in a state to value the same things in the same order but easier to obtain in at least a lot of the states right now than the national government.

124 91 I recall seeing a map of the Gaza Strip with hospitals marked (along with other POI's.) It seemed like there was quite a few. Dense population.

But the locations were... odd. Now that we know the hospitals were Hamas C&C centers their locations make more sense.

Same with the mosques. Or so I presume.

As for stupid questions-well journalists ask the questions. But in reality, even if a probing intelligent question is asked, the formats preclude any realistic policy answers because of time and the allowance of monkey dancing behavior by the other candidates (wide shots with gibbering ape like social behavior by others not talking) or outright shrieking idiocies during the answer period.

Posted by: Dr. T a

LOL. She cared a lot about getting in to showbiz as well. She claimed that she was raped by Weinstein which is probably true. But here is where her story gets real wonky - she said that she was trying to get projects sold in H-wood and was naïve. She was 31 and Weinstein asked her up to his hotel room to discuss her "work". Um, she thought that was normal? Also, she kept talking to W after the alleged rape and even asked him for a donation to her husband's campaign which he did. Traumatized she was. Just another AWLF.

192 There was a significant difference to this debate format from any recent televised debate between a prominent Republican and prominent Democrat. It's the reason Newsom did so poorly.

For the first time in memory the questions were both fact based using publicly available data and the narrator was not a flaming leftist. Newsom was forced to defend his record or lie and deflect. Guess which way he went?

Ron was good but Newsom was awful. His greased stained halo took a big hit.

Meh, Bill Clinton survived after a much bigger bomb of a speech at the Dem Natl Convention. And that was still in the time of the Big Networks plus CNN. Nowadays, what matters is the brief clips shown if any on the various news outlets. GOP will cheer DeSantis and Dems will cheer Newsom. Really doubt it will have much effect on whether Gavin is parachuted in or not by Dems. Because if all else fails, the 'journalist' moderator of the debate simply gives the DNC the questions in advance and keeps the focus on what the Dems want to talk about rather than what the GOP wants to talk about.

200 LOL. She cared a lot about getting in to showbiz as well. She claimed that she was raped by Weinstein which is probably true. But here is where her story gets real wonky - she said that she was trying to get projects sold in H-wood and was naïve. She was 31 and Weinstein asked her up to his hotel room to discuss her "work". Um, she thought that was normal? Also, she kept talking to W after the alleged rape and even asked him for a donation to her husband's campaign which he did. Traumatized she was. Just another AWLF.

Most school systems are funded based on Average Daily Attendance.

They don't give a hang whether or not your kids are raped in the bathroom by trannies, get beaten to death by black thugs, turn out functionally illiterate and unable to perform simple arithmetic.

They don't care if cross dressers twerk in front of them, faggots teach them how to suck penis in home room class, whether or not teachers f*ck the children, or whether or not children get shot to pieces by deranged gunmen.

They care about two things:

Senator Menendez, he needs to go. And if you are going to expel Santos, how can you allow somebody like Menendez to remain in the Senate? And, you know, Santos is kind of funny. Lies were almost, you know, funny. And like, you know, he, you know, landed on the moon and that kind of stuff. Whereas, you know, I think, you know, Menendez, I think is really a senator for Egypt. You know, not New Jersey. So I really think he needs to go.”

Yes. This was the norm for some time, even under prog hero FDR. It should never have been changed.

The union process *must* be adversarial - two groups with skin in the game negotiating against each other. Government unions do not have an adversarial process, because only one party - the union - has any skin in the game. The government doesn't, because it isn't their money. The other skin-in-the-game party - taxpayers - don't have a seat at the table.

DeSantis doesn't affect his candidacy, its the fact that the Dems don't want to vote for white males with a functioning brain that will scupper him.

267 256 Also, Fetterman's Monster just said that if the House is throwing out Santos the Senate should throw out Menendez, because he's "the Senator from Egypt". I think Fetterman's lost control of his monster.

Or it's the Dems using a suitable puppet to facilitate the Santos-ing of Menendez from the Senate to put in a more suitable NJ Dem in his place.

Fetterman is Gov Shapiro's wind up toy. Does Shapiro have a grudge against Menendez or a fellow Dem he wants to replace Menendez with?

To review:
-UN: teacher held (at least) one hostage.
-Red Cross: knew about Hamas use of hospitals and tried to keep Israel away.
Major Media: used stringers who *literally* rode into battle with Hamas brandishing weapons.

Please realize just how over this conversation is.

I heard that in 2020.

And then the top 2 candidates for the Democratic nomination were...old white dudes.

Bernie was the frontrunner for months.

Looks like a dead baby to me. Kinda hard to know how the baby died though, so who knows, maybe they keep it on ice, then thaw it out and parade it around when they need it.

But it looks real.

278 But just outside the store, a bum has set up a table selling the same goods looted from the drug store. What a coincidence!

And the police do nothing. Crime is now legal.

To be fair, I'm pretty sure if you grabbed stuff from the bum's table and ran off with it you'd be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

They wish. Russia has already incorporated 25 percent of Ukraine into Russia. This will stand. Kharkov and Odessa will be incorporated into Russia as well for sure. They will make sure the games played with Dnepr Dams can't happen again at a minimum.

288 One of the hostages, recently released from Gaza, revealed on Wednesday that he was held for nearly 50 days in an attic by a teacher from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA)...The hostage also said that the teacher who held him captive was a father of 10 children. He had barely been provided food or medical attention, and was locked away by the teacher, he said.

Furthermore, Boker's report also cites another hostage saying that he was held hostage by a Gazan doctor as he was trea
