PUCK! ONT

LAST NIGHT THE QUEST FOR THE HARDEST TROPHY TO WIN IN SPORTS STARTED! Are you excited? I'm excited.

Hockey

The East

So, who do you like for the cup? Last night three out of the five games were upsets, including the Ohio Cannon Cockers stunning the mighty Bolts who had jumped out to a three goal lead in the first. Can they do it three more times? Odds say no, but if Tampa is knocked out the East becomes wide open. Will the Leafs finally get the monkey off their back and slay the Bruins? Do the aging Pens have one more run in them? They looked like the Pens of old last night, forcing OT late, but the Isles slammed the door in the extra period, despite some unorthodox formations from the visitors .

Pens are running with a 1 man line and 5 goalies


Anyhow, who wins each of the following series?

Lightning/Blue Jackets
Bruins/Leafs
Capitals/Hurricanes
Islanders/Penguins


The West

For some reason, everybody seems to love the Sharks, and I'll admit they're a deep, talented bunch, but their goal tending is horrible, and they ended the season in a terrible skid. Still, they took care of Vegas last night pretty handily. It was upset city in the Central, with St. Louis and Dallas taking down higher seeded clubs, and what about the Avs? A mirror image of the Sharks, they squeaked into the playoffs on the strength of some incredible goal tending but only one good line. Still, the teams that worry me most are the Blues and the Stars, but once the smoke clears, I think it's obvious who will come out of the West:

Predictions:

Flames/Avalanche
Sharks/Golden Knights
Jets/Blues
Predators/Stars


Finally, who comes out of the East? The West? And who hoists Lord Stanley's Cup when the dust settles?

And now here is some non-hockey content, although I can't imagine that anyone cares.

The other thing they have been doing consistently is making sure to build controversy - usually by lying - around even tragic stories. In other words, they have trained us to divide even in tragedy. This is so that not even another 9/11 can ever bring (most of) us together again.

Incredible year. revamped almost the whole line-up and played close to 700 ball the last half of the season.

The opener is no gimmick. Also allows them to switch from righty to lefty. preventing the opposing team from loading up righty hitters against LHP.

Also, its sort of a constant by-committee thing. Get the stinkers out and keep the hot hands in. Brilliant!

177 I don't get Koepka. He has crazy talent but no personality. He proudly proclaims that he has a chip on his shoulder because people don't root for him because he has no personality. It seems like a never ending loop.

He's trolling everyone!

I like the guy being quiet. I think he gets more of a thrill out of winning when no one picks him to win than most people who win after they have been part of the conversation about winning.

Either way, the guy is crazy talented and is as likely to win as anyone. But come Sunday, if it is remotely close, the Tiger or Phil crowds will be deafening.

Koepka is like a copy of Dustin Johnson. I know they are buddies and work out together. They are alike in so many ways. Both of them are awesome. Both are quiet in their awesomeness. Others could learn a lot from the two of them.

178 Isn't the Canadian anthem 'O Christmas Tree'?

Canucks don't really have any identity. They're neither British, nor American.

"God save our gracious Queen"

vs

"My Country 'tis of thee"

Same tune. Neither is Canuck.

Ask Quebec what they think is an appropriate anthem.

180 There's some TV show I keep seeing ads for called The Resident. The voice-over says "The United States is the most dangerous country in the world to give birth in."

This is objectively, laughably false, even when you take into account the shocking number of abortions. Even if you don't know the stats it's totally silly. No American woman would choose to give birth in Venezuela or Congo.

Our propaganda is slicker, better funded, and more ham-handed than anyone's, ever.

Yeah, I think that was bullshit. Holding all four majors at the same time is a Grand Slam. The guy who originally used the term for golf actually talked about holding all 4 trophies at the same time (different trophies, back then, of course).

4 majors in a row is a Grand Slam. No doubt about it. And 5 majors in a row is much, much harder to do than to win 4 majors in one calendar year.

They pulled the same thing with Serena and her Grand Slam and Djokovic and his Grand Slam (and he has a chance to do it again with the French Open coming up). Of course, the idiots in tennis call the individual majors "Grand Slams" because none of them know what the fvck they're talking about.

Police Squad was an example of a show being too smart for TV, or what TV execs think is too smart.

IIRC, one of them said something like "you have to think too much to follow it".

Ticked me off to no end when he ODed. He had so many great years and roles ahead of him.

I agree. People talk about the 18 majors, but the 2nd place finishes are unreal. When Tiger was on top for several years, I don't think anyone dominated the game int the same way. But Jack is the Greatest to ever play the game. And he has won off the course like nobody in history. Arnie is up there off the course, but he never won like Jack.

I think this was a Trevino quote but I am not positive about that. But it is the quintessential quote about Nicklaus. "He knew he was going to beat you, he knew you knew he was going to beat you, and he knew you knew he knew he was going to beat you."

Years ago, I drove a tractor off in the ditch watching some hottie jog by.

And, back in the '80s I think it was, a bank secretary's legs were blamed with causing many traffic accidents.

The bank had those glass walls and was right next to where an off-ramp from I-386 merged into a main road.

She was sitting right next to the glass, and in the afteroon, the sun would give a nice leg-light effect visible from that off ramp.

There was many an accident.

btw, a few means three. I am not saying this to anyone here but I have learned over time that Milliennialls don't know what a "few" means, they don't even know what a couple means. I ask for a couple chicken wings and they always say "how many\?". WTH? You don't know what a couple means?
btw, I would guess Tiger has played a bunch of rounds with Trump. I can think of at least three times he has played with him since the presidency. I think the first time it got some media because they thought they could shame Tiger. Now they know they can't, the rounds get little attention. Also, Jack Nicklaus is a huge Trump supporter and is not afraid to say it.

The jet the Feds seized was a Honda Jet.

Absolutely the lowest-price private twin-jet on the market. Cruise speed lower than 400 mph.

Kind of the "1" series BMW, if you catch my drift. A fine machine, but an entry-level fine machine.

What's all this mean? Means when Avenetti flew into whereverville, his was *always* the cheapest jet on the ramp. FBOs would park his Honda Jet out of sight of the Gulfstreams, just so the Honda Jet wouldn't go all kamekazi and commit aviation seppuku.

And what's this to do with sending him stuff in prison?

Easy.

Find print outs or vintage copies of every Flying Magazine or Plane & Pilot, and their reviews of the Honda Jet. Online articles, too. They're everywhere.

Send those to him in the Big House.

Same with Car & Driver and Road & Track, of whatever prestige cars he once owned.

Ditto with every luxury item in his universe, all the way down to Rolex watches.

Send him the reviews the raves, the articles.

It'll all serve to remind him of what he'll never have again.

I think Jack said Tiger would beat his major record at one point. Jack is about as gracious as you can get. And it was not a crazy idea, Tiger was on that trajectory before his physical and personal issues came up.

361 I agree. People talk about the 18 majors, but the 2nd place finishes are unreal. When Tiger was on top for several years, I don't think anyone dominated the game int the same way. But Jack is the Greatest to ever play the game. And he has won off the course like nobody in history. Arnie is up there off the course, but he never won like Jack.

I think this was a Trevino quote but I am not positive about that. But it is the quintessential quote about Nicklaus. "He knew he was going to beat you, he knew you knew he was going to beat you, and he knew you knew he knew he was going to beat you."

369 Who will win the Stanley Cup? I'm in a hockey playoff pool run for over 30 years now by a guy I once worked with, $5 a pop per pick with 5 picks per person max (1 point for each correct first round pick [8 points], 3 points second round [12 points], 5 points third round [10 points] and 10 points for picking the champion). This year I have 5 different winners: Tampa Bay, Winnipeg, San Jose, Calgary and Boston.

Full Disclosure: I've won the pool twice, in '98 with Detroit and in '16 with Pittsburgh (39 points out of possible total of 40). That last one I won by 1 point thanks to the first round. When I won in '16, First Place was over $1,600 (I've won more money those two times than I have ever won playing any lottery). Haven't got the full list of entrants yet, but usually there are like 250 to 350 entries so a decent first/second/third prize pool. Makes watching the playoffs fun (especially since the Rangers are back to their 'golfing in the spring' season routine).

But totally batshit in real life with paranoid delusions that people were trying to poison. His command of logic didn't apply beyond the abstract math.

Most examples are mathematicians.

I believe that some simply do not see the physical world as we do. Almost everything is perceived/considered in the abstract.

In Godel's case, pondering the certainty that all systems are either incomplete or inconsistent might have been too much to deal with.

Godel's story is interesting. Einstein sponsored him for citizenship. That was back in the day when they had shut immigration down, and to get in, well, you had to be Einstein or have him vouch for you.

Anyway, at his citizenship hearing, Godel started rambling like a lunatic that he had found a logical flaw in the US Constitution. Einstein was there and did a face palm.

American football used to be slow and plodding as well, but it evolved with things like the hash marks and the forward pass.

416 Y-5, here's the thing.

I'll even give Avenatti a bit of off-handed respect, even while having ZERO respect for him.

In his DNA, he's some form of an Alpha. He has all the characteristics, but few authentic successes to show for his trait.

His "conquests" with women, are culled from the weak-minded leftie chicks, who'll give it up for the first guy that's not Mr. Soy Hairbun.

His "conquests" at law, were always against beta or omega "non-pols", in other words, not hard core conservatives. Non Politicals, who had no idea of how to deal with being steamrolled by an onslaught from the left.

His "acquisitions" were ill-gotten gains, derived mostly by cheating his clients, hiding/moving funds and otherwise being a typical leftist sleaze.

Had his drive, talent and charisma had been FOCUSED by a tightly defined set of conservative values..had he had the barest modicum of self-discipline and honor... were he possessed of the merest bit of consciousness.

But, he wasn't.

And he turned to be the left's opposite of a Tucker Carlson.

He was a "has been", right outta the gate, and spiraling downward in smoke to his eventual pyre, ever since.

His fall was as predictable as Icarus, only with less honor in the doing.

Yep, CPL is a textbook psychopath. No conscience, no empathy. And it's no wonder the media took to him so well, as media is one of the Top 10 psychopath professions.

The funny thing about that, which make sense, is that MDs as a whole are usually very empathetic and in the low psychopath profession. The exception is surgeons, who are high psychopathy. That makes sense. You want Mr. Spock cutting you brain open, not Bones McCoy.

I rate this comment as 110% true.

In truth, I've never forgotten my first glimpse of the ice at a professional hockey game, a AAA affair (at Norfolk's 8,500 seat arena, Scope). For some reason, I felt I was in Notre Dame Cathedral, overcome with a hushed reverence. Then, when the National Anthem started, that was all she wrote. Board-vibrating body checks, high sticks to the face, fights, blood on the ice (this was back in the days, before the movie Slap Shot even came out). I found the perfect sport.

Best quote about hockey I ever read: An enforcer, Dave 'The Tiger' Williams, talking about the violence in hockey: "When you lace up the skates, you are consenting to assault and battery." Unfortunately, hockey has pussified itself a lot since those Broad Street Bully/Big Bad Bruin Days of bench clearing brawls. Sad. Make Hockey Violent Again!

435 309 -- Primordial -- Hoffman had been clean for ten years, but fell off the wagon. I think it all got to him.

I also believe Hoffman was extremely talented in that he had a gift for stepping so far into the character he was playing he himself became invisible. You could have knocked me out with a feather when I realized he played the head coach in Money Ball. And he played the lead character in A Most Wanted Man, which came out of something John Le Carre wrote. I thought it was the best thing LeCarre had created since the Karla Trilogy, and Hoffman played his character beautifully, bringing all the stolid German lugubriousness to perfect life.

--Born in Norfolk.

Love them Admirals. John Brophy was fucking awesome.

Also this trivia:

During the 2011-12 season, the Norfolk Admirals set a professional hockey record for the longest winning streak, winning their 28th consecutive game on April 15 against the Adirondack Phantoms. The streak far surpassed the previous AHL record of 17 straight wins set by the Philadelphia Phantoms in 2004-05, as well as the pro hockey record of 18 games set by the Peoria Rivermen of the original International Hockey League in 1991.

The streak garnered international media attention for the Admirals and the American Hockey League,,including highlights on NHL Network and ESPN's SportsCenter.

The 28-game streak included 15 home games and 13 road games. The win streak started on February 10 against Adirondack. Before their 3-2 OT win against Binghamton on April 14, the previous 20 games were all won in regulation. As of October 20, 2012 the Norfolk Admirals have won 32 regular season games in a row dating back to the 2011-12 season.

The winning streak translated into a deep playoff run for the Admirals, where they would win 15 of 18 playoff games, including back to back four game sweeps in the Eastern Conference and Calder Cup Finals. On June 9, 2012, the Admirals captured their first ever Calder Cup with a 6-1 win over the Toronto Marlies.

I used to resent that it seemed so easy for him and he brought in a bunch of "fans" that didn't care so much about golf as they did Tiger. But he helped the game when it needed help. He was one the the greatest to ever play. And it was not easy for him, he busted his ass. There are better role models than Tiger, Jack is one of them. But Tiger is fun to watch. And people deserve second chances.

447 It's true that hockey on TV has limitations. Most of which can be solved by lots of cameras, good camera work, and even better producer work - which only happens for the big games. (adding cameras and knowledgeable commentators even made nordic skiing events, especially the sprints and shorter biathlons, very watchable)


And following the puck isn't just a question of TV limitations. You have to know the game. If you do, it's second nature - you pretty much know where the puck is, or is going, or why a guy is cutting or stopping or moving to a certain spot. I've played since my yute, still do, and it's just like anything else that seems complicated or fast - until it's just routine (watching/following it, I mean).

I tried explaining to her, but she just kept ramming her head into the brick wall. The few times I met with him, I had no problem because I had already been trained by other engineers and sysops.

464 Fun memory from being a kid... we had an aircraft (probably an F-16, because Rockies in the early 90s) come in LOW and FASTx2 and rattle our whole town early in the morning. It shattered a lot of windows, but not mine.

It was intense. I thought the propane facility exploded.

Later, one of the pilots got kicked out of the air force for it, IIRC.

465 Saw Tiger twice. Well, once. First time was a Saturday, a throng followed him, hard to even see him hit. Except that I was positioned between 17th green and 18th tee, they made a rope corridor for the golfers to walk between the two whenever they approached, I was right on the rope. Tiger looked straight ahead - no acknowledgement at all of the crowd cheering him on and looking for high-fives. Total focus. A little while later, Mickelson came through. Took him 2 minutes to get through the 30 yard corridor - he did everything but sign autographs - high-fives, acknowledging the enthusiastic support, smiling.


Second time was perfect - rain forced a rare Monday morning playoff, Tiger was in the small number. Nobody there. Saw him make the shot of the tournament - ball below his feet on a steep angle in a bunker, he left it tap-in distance from the hole.


(both times were at the Buick, now Farmer's, tournament at Torrey Pines)

466 logprof,

My first games were the old Tidewater Wings, later changed to the Virginia Red Wings. I saw Art Stratton (AHL Hall Of Fame) play as well as Willy O'Ree (the first black NHL player, playing for the Bruins on January 18, 195.

My Mom worked nights at NOB. She had season tickets to the Wings. She'd go to the game, drop me at home after and then head straight to work. At the games, that silver-haired older lady would be screaming, 'Hit him! Punch Him!' Gotta love Mom for that.

I've taken my Mom to three NYRangers games, the first in '83, against the Oilers. She saw Gretz score a hat trick in a 5-2 Rangers loss*. She loved hockey. I think what grabbed her attention was all that action on skates. I think that impressed her the most, the skill required to do that.

* I was at Gretz' last playoff hat trick game, at MSG against Florida, back in '97.

474 Y's Dice, in the late 80s, at a football game (Air Force hosting BYU) in Colorado Springs, we were sitting near the top of the rim of the upper deck, south end of the stadium (work trip, Air Farce-sponsored).


As one would expect, they had great fly-bys for home games (the 80s - big big big military, lots of $$$). Last plane to fly over was a B-1, which was cool, had never seen one in flight. One could tell even as he approached the far end of the stadium that he seemed low. He was. Pain or ear-damage low for the upper level. Low. Vibrating lungs low, some people freaking out low. Smell the fuel low. I believe he got in trouble. But it was fantastic.

I rate this comment as 110% true.



In truth, I've never forgotten my first glimpse of the ice at a
professional hockey game, a AAA affair (at Norfolk's 8,500 seat arena,
Scope). For some reason, I felt I was in Notre Dame Cathedral, overcome
with a hushed reverence. Then, when the National Anthem started, that
was all she wrote. Board-vibrating body checks, high sticks to the
face, fights, blood on the ice (this was back in the days, before the
movie Slap Shot even came out). I found the perfect sport.



Best quote about hockey I ever read: An enforcer, Dave 'The Tiger'
Williams, talking about the violence in hockey: "When you lace up the
skates, you are consenting to assault and battery." Unfortunately,
hockey has pussified itself a lot since those Broad Street Bully/Big Bad
Bruin Days of bench clearing brawls. Sad. Make Hockey Violent Again!

That of course made me fly mad and I briefly entertained the idea of calling him back and telling him I would disembowel him with my bare hands and ram his own guts down his throat, but cooled down and let it go.

I assume it was one of those spoofed calls.

That ought to be illegal. IIRC, the phone companies could stop it easily if they wanted to, but they don't.

Have to go find it, one of my favorite things was a retrospective article on his being the first black player to take to the ice for an NHL team. Reason it was a favorite - he's quoted as reminiscing about the press brouhaha about this fact, and remembering thinking "huh? what's the big deal?

We still have three strategic bombers in service (the B-52, B-1, and B-2). They're just not in production anymore.

As I mentioned above, the Air Force is working on a new Northrop-Grumman plane called the B-21, which should go into production sometime next decade. And apparently the Air Force's long range plans call for another new advanced bomber to enter production around 2037.


Huh. Stray thought.

The US and UK are the only two nations that I can think of off the top of my head that have ever effectively utilized strategic bombers in large numbers. That's kind of weird, when you think about it.

And the UK (who I doubt have any such planes anymore) largely used their bombers in night time raids when it was hard to hit things, while the US did precision daylight bombing raids. So advantage US.

I had sort of the opposite experience. Had a call on my cell, listed as "Government of Alberta". I sort of suspected it was a scammer, but I called back to the number anyway. Some Pakistani-accented dude answers, "Court of Queen's Bench", but didn't give his name. Odd. If he were an employee of the court, why would he not give his name, or position? I said, "I am returning your call. What do you want from me?" Him: "I never called you." Me: "Then why does this number show up on my phone's log?"

I gave him a ration of shit, and hung up. Then I tried the reverse lookup. All I could learn was the number was a land-line on the Bell network, and was in or near Calgary. I looked up the Calgary number for Court of Queen's Bench, and it was in a totally different exchange, and probably was on Telus network, since Telus was formerly Alberta Government Telephones.

So if the guy wasn't a scammer, too bad for him. All too many of those scum are "diverse Canadians" from south Asia.

And it sure seems to me that there ought to be a technological solution to number spoofing.

Agreed. Somewhere in the phone system(s) the source of the original call, and the fact that a non-matching caller ID is generated should be detectable.

Instapundit had a link the other day about some guy who had a VPN built that disallowed access to all several million Google ip addresses. The article noted a few things.

1.) The guy ended up cutting himself off from a huge chunk of the internet
2.) A surprising amount of stuff was simply non-functional. Spotify, for instance, requires bits and pieces of Google technology. Cutting off the Google ip addresses made it so that Spotify didn't work.
3.) Things that he wasn't even aware of on his computer were sending a ridiculous number of messages to the non-accessible Google ip addresses, even though he had obviously done nothing overt to trigger that behavior.

Here's the Wiki on Caller ID spoofing:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caller_ID_spoofing

It can't easily be done by an individual, but can be done by those with the big interfaces to the phone system that big outfits use.

IP phone systems are very easy to spoof.

It is illegal to spoof for purposes of fraud or theft. But not generally illegal. It ought to be.

There are some legitimate uses of it, such as one of these large business customers using it to give a common 800 call-back number, or say a doctor's office using it to return the main number rather that whatever individual line is calling.

It would be easy to stop it, and make those legitimate cases special cases -- requiring permission from the phone company system.

The truth is they make a lot of money from robocalling customers who like the spoofing feature.

Apple phones home all the time as well. In many cases, your small device doesn't have the processing power to do what you need, so the data has to be sent to a big server farm for processing.

Everybody does this. You can read packet sniffing reports of what every major OS/device phones home about.

Very common. The letter "bet" in Hebrew has a "b" sound with a dot, a "v" sound without a dot.

There is another letter for a "v", called a "vav" which has a "v" sound but can also serve as a silent consonant to carry the vowel "ooh" or "oh".

I told her in the kindest possible way that it happened before she was born and I know it happened because I was there.
This was not an argument, there was nothing to argue. But they way she said it had NEVER happened stuck with me. It is not joke, if they* did not personally experience it, it NEVER HAPPENED.

I was born in a certain era, a certain decade. How is it that I know about pop culture and history from previous decades? I personally love history, but why is it that I know about tv shows , movies, etc from decades before i was born? I am not that smart, it can't just be me.

632 > And it sure seems to me that there ought to be a technological solution to number spoofing.

Well, the obvious solution is to go with digitally-signed messages and message requests, but then you get into key management issues (such as what happens when you get a new phone...), as well as the fact that the systems were not designed to offer that capability. This is true of most legacy systems, such as email, paper mail, and phone calls.

The facility was simply not built into the systems when they were designed (and indeed, it wasn't technologically feasible when the systems were designed).

Think of regular paper mail. There's absolutely no way to stop me from writing "Alberta Oil Peon" in the return address space on an envelope and dropping it in a mail box. When the recipient gets the letter, there's no immediate way for him to tell that letter from one you legitimately sent. There's just no data there to work with. You have what's written in the return address space and that's pretty much it.

Same thing with phone calls and emails.

There are two basic ways around the problem:

1) Manually authenticate the sender at the time the message is put into the system. This would be a royal pain in the ass (think of going through a TSA or Customs-like lines at the post office, rather than just dropping it in a mailbox). The second problem with this method is that it doesn't prevent tampering after the letter has been sent, while it's in the system (for example, to spoof the caller id field).

2) Digitally sign the message using your private key before sending it. The recipient can use your public key to authenticate both that you sent it (assuming no one has gotten your key) and that the message hasn't been altered in transit.

2) is clearly a better solution. The problem is that the system has to be set up to use, carry, and authenticate the signed messages from the beginning, and neither the post office, nor the phone company, nor the current email system is set up to deal with that in a non-pain-in-the-ass manner. For paper mail, I suppose you could print the digital signature at the bottom of the page, then the recipient could type the message and signature into his computer to verify them, but... yeah, no one is gonna want to do that.

635 Part of it is the amount of material to digest. When we were kids, we could be exposed to music our parents or grandparents listened to- that they played in their houses when we went to visit. Now kids can block out anything but the now- and they have far more variety to choose from than we did of the 'now.'

There is some hope, for example on Spotify you can find some 40's collections (one gigantic playlist titles 40s music and world war II, I think, that has 938 some odd tracks.) If you search for spefici artists, you can find stuff. More esoteric and obscure stuff is a hard pass. I tried searching 'Linda' by Buddy Clark and got a fat goose egg.

He's a bit autistic, and now an adult so slowly getting out of that thankfully. Last time he was here I wanted to take him fishing but the weather was bad so we played online games since he brought his computer.

I'm hoping we can do some fishing soon tho. He'd only gone once with his occasional dad, and they didn't catch anything in some pond at a housing development, but my dad brought him up and we all went to a dock on an actual lake I go to and he got to catch about a half doz, but none were big enough to keep, tho, it may have lit a fire more than that stupid pond did...

we had a smoking area in high school. Now they are making the smoking age 21 and an 80 year old has to show his ID to buy beer. I still keep wondering why the Chinese and Russians have not attacked.

I remember someone going on about this. Young people have always been idiots. Every generation tends to think history began with they were born.

The difference is that the older generation, those in charge *indulge* that behavior. Previously, the older generation would just shake its head at how stupid they were and do their best to knock some sense in their heads, and by the time they were finally old enough to take over, they had that nonsense out of them.

But now it's indulged. The Left saw this as the way to get in power.

Thanks man!



He's a bit autistic, and now an adult so slowly getting out of that
thankfully. Last time he was here I wanted to take him fishing but the
weather was bad so we played online games since he brought his computer.




I'm hoping we can do some fishing soon tho. He'd only gone once with
his occasional dad, and they didn't catch anything in some pond at a
housing development, but my dad brought him up and we all went to a dock
on an actual lake I go to and he got to catch about a half doz, but
none were big enough to keep, tho, it may have lit a fire more than that
stupid pond did...

Posted by: Jarvis Deplorable at April 12, 2019 03:18 AM (aI4xH)

They remember that kind of stuff the most. I know I remember fishing and camping trips more than any movies or other random blather. You have made an effort as an uncle, that is to be commended. There are dads that don't care, it is obvious that you do.

Oh good Lord, all those old shows are racist, sexist and homophobic and whatever other phobias they've come up with now.

I was watching an episode of Gilligan's Island the other day on MeTV. It was the one where the Japanese soldier who does know the war is over lands on the island and starts capturing them all.

He's played by an American actor hamming up all the Japanese mannerisms and stereotypes. He tells Ginger, "You good rooking". I laughed my ass off.

That would set the current generation's hair on fire.

I also built a model airplane with him (a P-61 Black widow, he chose from the box art) I had never heard about till we built it, then, some random history doc show talked about how one helped with a POW escape! (its like you never see blue VWs till someone says that?) and during that tried to get him off of rap by playing Zep, RUSH and Floyd.. It didnt catch then, but now a few years later, he comes to me and says "Hey! You wanna listen to some Zep!?" and plays it on his phone while I'm working on moms van.

About a year ago, one tv show rerun channel had a day-long marathon of 'Alien Nation', from 1989-90. On one episode, a female alien character was upset at being called a 'slag', a bigoted term some humans called the Tectonese, crying in the ladies room at the precinct. A black human female cop walked in, saw her crying and told her she shouldn't worry about what people call her because people are hateful and to ignore them. She said she'd been called 'ni**er' early in her police career (yes, the whole word, no euphemisms or asterisks) and she rose above it; no anger in her voice, just a type of resignation that some people are idiots. No bleeping at the time or with the rerun. I watched the show at the time and honestly did not remember that line as it wasn't jarring and made sense in the context of the show. But watching the rerun, boy, did it stick out. That's how far we have fallen.

I blame us.

740 I dunno, Bruce...we don't require THAT amount on penance. Maybe have one.

741 It's also my fault as I ran the gas out of the snowblower before I left. Which I would have done even if we hadn't left. The lawnmower would be in the garage and I probably would have mowed at least once.

I'm so glad that it was renamed Climate Change. It all makes so much sense to me now.

742 So I see our friend PButt is the focus of an article in the NYT. He's gonna remake that loathsome Christianity so that it kneels before the Gaysex. Has anyone told PButt that he has absolutely no power to do any such thing? Delusions of grandeur, I tell ya!

743 I remember back in the late 60's, my Boy Scout Troop spent Easter Saturday cleaning up around the church.

The we got 2 inches of snow and no one could see our good deed on Easter Morning.

744 You'd think towards the middle of April one would be safe from Easter snows.

746 I put ours away, too, when I got out the tiller for the garden. My theory: if it snows in April just ignore it. It'll go away soon.

753 Maga: denominations do not Christianity make. But yeah...PButt should just keep himself happy as a 'deeply religious' Episcopalian. He's got what he wants in that particular club. Why all the cultural appropriation of other folks faith? Why isn't he going after the Muslims?

Have you tried the wire-frame tents with clear plastic ? I don't know about big snow - but they work really well for frost.

Sounds like a good idea, but all the plants survive the snow. Hostas, peonies, crocus and the like.

My phone is playing some largely insipid music to wake me (too late, I already was awake).

As a young 'un, having been out partying the night before and expecting that I likely would be hung over the next morning, I'd set a timer on my stereo to play a 33-1/3 rpm recording of Beethoven's "Emperor Concerto" as my alarm. It was amazing how fast I would bolt out of bed to shut off the phonograph when I heard its mechanical movements commence. No way I wanted to subject myself to the full orchestral fortissimo opening chord of that piece while hung over, however much I loved the work itself..

767 Another beautiful day here as well. 90 % of interstate system in SD is closed for the 3rd day in a row. I got lucky as I only got rain in my corner of the stateand my roads are open. Or uhh.. unlucky as I have to go to work would be a good day to stay home and watch golf.

The nation has changed. I don't think it is possible to embarrass a Democrat and hurt their electoral prospects. You can point out absurdities and hope to affect things on the margins but it is not likely a Congress Critter's constituency will change much. Whomever elected Ilhan and Beto will still be around next election.
