The redhead looks like she might have a nice superstructure. The black-haired one, not so much. (But I love black-haired girls with fair skin almost as much as I do pale redheads, so there's that.)

It's not May. It's June.

I like shoulders.

There is a small patch of grandmother's fragrant pink roses still growing along the fence near the front gate. Blooming right now. Every year, we swear we're going to gather cuttings and propagate more. This year for sure.

They are desperate for anything they can spin as a win at this point. The failure of the Russian Collusion investigation did a lot of damage to the NeverTrumpers and the Left and we are just beginning to see how extensive that is. They are sitting there sputtering away on trivialities and circus-like acts while Trump is freed to act the statesman.
It is very revealing.

55 I'd never heard of the artist so I did a quick lookup. A Pre-Raphaelite, which means most of his ladies (like the ones above) have a fragile and sexless look about them. On the other hand he also did an 1888 "Cleopatra," in which she looks very tough, very Greek, and not to be messed with.

62 Archer #13 Pro tip. if you step on a bee with a bare foot, it hurts.

Very hippie-dippie young friend came up to the ranch to visit, and, seeing the lush clover growing up in our yard, impulsively kicked off her sandals and ran barefoot through the bees. As if chiggers and ticks weren't threat enough.

So many decades ago, and we still chuckle about her sudden enlightenment about Mother Nature's attitude toward mere human flesh.

Posted by: mindful webworker - click for vids blog at June 12, 2019 09:46 AM (gPTe0)

63 I do enjoy this style of painting. The skin tones, the detail in the clothing with its gentle folds (how do they do that?), the slightly stylized look of the models faces and even the wooded background, and the peaceful scene are pleasant to view.

Waterhouse isn't as dramatic as some of the earlier Pre-Raphaelites but his work is appealing.

There was another English poet who penned something with this painting's exact title. Same guy who wrote "To Lucasta, on Going to the Wars," I think, not sure.

Robert Herrick wrote "to the Virgins, to make much of Time" which includes the line "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may". Richard Lovelace wrote "To Lucasta.."


I could not love thee (Dear) so much
Lov'd I not Honour more.

102 I had to give in and look it up. "Gather Ye Rosebuds" is the first line of a poem by Robert Herrick. "To Lucasta, On Going to the Wars" is by Richard Lovelace. It has that famous last line, "I could not love thee, dear, so much/ Lov'd I not Honour more."

This really needs a mention, either by Ace or a cob. This is a link to the Buffalo NBC affiliate website. It is an article about a New York State Bill that is meant to eliminate "Institutionalized Discrimination" in the pricing of health and beauty care items sold to men and women.

The women's razors and shampoo cost on average 7% more, but they are essentially the same, you see. Um, Assemblywoman Sugartits, if they are essentially the same, BUY THE OTHER ONE!!! et voila! problem solved!

Nope, we need a law dammit, because women in NYS are too fucking stupid to reach two feet to the left and buy a men's razor.

174 Found a fascinating back story to this particular painting - "Lost for nearly a century, this painting was in an old Canadian farmhouse bought by a couple who requested the painting stay with the house because "It looked nice on the wall." They had no idea of its worth. When they took it to an art dealer to be appraised nearly 30 years later, he "nearly fell off his chair." Nobody knows how the painting ended up in the Canadian farmhouse."

It's currently valued at about $2 million, give or take.

This is from my favorite period of art, the art I enjoy the most, Art Nouveau. (roughly same time as the Edwardian era in the UK)

Waterhouse has a lot in common with his contemporary Alphonse Mucha, especially in a work like "Circe". (But Mucha is always sexier, which is probably why I like his art so much)

"The Human Fund" was a charity that George Costanza made up. On Christmas, instead of presents to his co-workers, he handed them a card that tells them he made a donation to the Human Fund in their name.

I just made up "Womens Human Fund" because it's the Human Fund but, just for women

214 175 Found a fascinating back story to this particular painting - "Lost for nearly a century, this painting was in an old Canadian farmhouse bought by a couple who requested the painting stay with the house because "It looked nice on the wall." They had no idea of its worth. When they took it to an art dealer to be appraised nearly 30 years later, he "nearly fell off his chair." Nobody knows how the painting ended up in the Canadian farmhouse."

It's currently valued at about $2 million, give or take.

Posted by: Tom Servo at June 12, 2019 10:11 AM (Kpl3J)

It was stolen by an anonymous Canadian soldier during Canada's evil imperial period. During this dark chapter, the Evil Empire threatened to infuse poutine, crazy accents, and the worship of maple leaves into everyone's culture unless they gave up their art. England submitted but America fought back against the oppressors.

311 Tucker, strangely, is covering the UFO's (not saying alien, but odd) and he is bringing on more and more folks who seem valid.

This is a glaring example of how totally F'd up our education system is.

UFO means "unidentified flying object" a basic scientific mind would not permit it to mean "space aliens" or "otherwordly advanced life".

From the astrophysical standpoint: there are no known planets that are even in the "habital zone" near any star. Astronomers have identified over 4000 planets through various proxies and have found none that could even remotely support life.

From the maths and basic physics standpoint: stars are pretty far out there, and any star that has a planet system, even some Juvian gas planet, is many, many lightyears away. To travel between these systems would require hundreds if not thousands of years to make the transit.

Even if these "advanced life forms" were able to go up to if not beyond the speed of light, the amount of energy to accelerate to that speed is mind boggling.

For example, to accelerate a one kilogram object to c/10 would require an energy equivalent of all the energy mankind has generated in since the dawn of the industrial age. Then you need that energy again to slow it down. Even with pure matter/anti-matter conversion, the energy is just not there.

Now think about accelerating and then stopping an object many kilotons in mass - and kicking the speed up an order of magnitude...

Even at c/10, hitting a something the size of a grain of sand would be the equivalent of absorbing an explosion far more powerful than a brick of TNT detonating. What kind of space-ship hull material could do that and not add thousands of additional kilotons of mass?

But I guess stupid people with no scientific education will just invent technology that violates all known laws of physics because people want to believe that there is a benevolent superior life form out there that want to rescue us from our own sin.

Da Swamp (the big city in Lousy-ana) features some of the truest idiots who ever barely passed a license exam. They are apparently confused and frightened by the stalks on the steering column, so they respond by ignoring them all -- including turn signals.

I'll agree with most of you about the merging business. But I was taught when I was preparing for my license that, on an expressway, you share responsibility with the incoming drivers in seeing that they merge safely. You may have the right of way, but that should take second place to safety. When I know drivers may be merging ahead, I try to stay out of the right lane if I have no pressing business there, like exiting. That is not a place to play dominance games.

The trouble being that none of these incoming drivers understand that principle, either.

372 UFO means "unidentified flying object" a basic scientific mind would not permit it to mean "space aliens" or "otherwordly advanced life".

---
Scientific mindset is fine for the practice of Science, but not necessary for laymen.

Yes, you are right the name just translates to "Unidentified object in the sky", and too many people forget that.

What is needed is skepticism, empiricism and logic, and science is actually extra-logical. In deduction, you cannot get a universal from an existential. So, to me, that is the "Scientific Conjecture". It's inductive with proposed, provisional (and provisionally qualified) globals.

Really a big boost in logic could be had by teaching everyone what happens when you turn a positive statement to its logical complement, by negating it. Interestingly enough that's operative in UFOs. The base descriptor is the logical complement of known objects. It's un-known.

Logical complements are *wide*. And positive statements are about *known* things or categories, "Unknown" or "unidentified" adds the complication of meta-statement.

387 Another element in the potential anti-ant arsenal is diotomaceous earth. Damnedest stuff: it is absolutely not poisonous, it's even good for some things, but it cuts up insect's little feets, and kills them daid.

You use it like a barrier. Might be a bit much for all around the house, but for the recognizable tracks, or making a flower garden or door-sill off-limits, it is safe and effective.

Related note, I think it is great that the Gideon bibles are KJV. All those frontispiece pages headed "What the Bible says about..." can be a challenge, a little comical if you're not desperately in need, but at least when you get to the meat of the matter, it's the real deal and not some postmod happy-talk.

And Proverbs 6, "Go to the ant, thou sluggard," isn't really just a grasshopper fable. The next line is the clincher, "Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provideth her meat in the summer..."

Showing that the writer of that proverb did not consider ants, as we do, to be totalitarian, communist, controlled by the queen and her scent - domination, but just saw a bunch of ants kind of working at the same thing, and seeing something about the proper conduct of life in that, huh.

Like certain stinging industrious insects, in moments I might wish for better communication, so that I could respect their industry and not have to kill the living shit out of them for showing up too close to my bed.

Baking Soda. Safe for kids and pets. Leave it out for a while and it somehow confuses their scent marking and they take it back to the hive.


sister of mine liked to put a little pile of malt-o-meal next to an ant pile. they'd troop out and take it into the pile grain by grain. about half an hour later, they'd be frantically dragging it back out again, because it got damp and started to swell.

didn't kill them, but annoyed them mightily.

She is sad that Kennedy retired, warned that the court may now be rendering decisions on ideologue point of views( yes, Ruthie, ya'all been doing that for years) and is extremely happy to report that Justice Kavanaugh has an all female law clerk team. The court now has more female than male law clerks, which makes Ruthie happy.

She also commented that Kavanaugh has the thankless job of being on the Court Cafeteria Committee.

476 There are stages of cuckery, as witness the liquid soap.

People who work in white shirts and suits get an anti-perspirant habit. Just feeling that there is sweat going on creates an uneasy feeling that one might be sweating through the fabric, or in that other way offering offense to a client. And so the titanium-dioxide and aluminum powder formulas are applied, to block the pores and prevent perspiration. This is a different formula from the old idea of "deodorant," which merely sort of keeps it clean and avoids stong smell.

That damn powder gets in the bloodstream, and starts to bond with fluids wherever they accumulate. You can give yourself cancers of several organs by using it non-stop for a whole working lifetime.

Everybody likes a good joke about people who won't use under-arm products. It is possible to go ape-shit on this stuff, too.

535 371 Science fiction is, well, fiction, after all..... Mars can't be terraformed, probably, because of low gravity.... the lack of a magnetic field is horribly problematic..... limited underground dwelling there " might" be an option, though....
Posted by: kraken at June 12, 2019 10:54 AM (DpEis)

It's a solvable problem, from a mega-engineering perspective. The gravity is enough, it's the lack of magnetic field that would make any environmental alterations we could make temporary.

The magnetic field is almost nonexistent, due to a mostly-cooled core. The only way to fix it is to restart the core.

How would we go that? Well, why hasn't our core cooled? A lot of it comes down to friction generated by tidal forces, thanks to having a large moon.

Mars's moons are too small to generate a similar effect.

My proposed solution is basically cosmic billiards, mounting thrusters to thousands of small belt asteroids, to drive the existing moons together with precision kinetic impacts, and add more material to the combined planetoid until it is sufficient to provide the tidal stresses required.

As the core warms up, the magnetic field will return, and as a bonus, so will volcanism, which will release gases that will thicken the atmosphere to survivable pressures, which will not only provide an environment suitable for plantlife, but also retain heat.

537 The great thing about being a liberal is never having to think, the press will pull rationale out of their ass to cover you, and their united saturation will influence in non-critical-thinkers.
Posted by: Axeman (as hyperbolist) at June 12, 2019 11:12 AM (DuZls)

The REALLY great thing about being a liberal is the fact that you only need to convince maybe 10 percent of the dumb asses to support you. The media will do the rest and turn that 10 percent into 51%.

538 could you imagine the cries of white supremacy if trump said "Make America, America Again!"

Well, considering that he'd be quoting Langston Hughes, all sorts of things would, or ought to, happen...

Come to think on it, it's just the sort of thing Trump would do.To watch lefty heads asplode, as we say.

The magnetic field is almost nonexistent, due to a mostly-cooled core. The only way to fix it is to restart the core.

They're called "flying objects" but we don't even know that they are flying. They could be N-dimensional projections onto our 3D surface.

I like to listen to the Last Podcast on the Left from time to time. They talk about real crime, serial killers, and paranormal stuff, and it seems like the prevailing opinion among serious UFO researchers *snort* is that UFOs and aliens don't come from another planet in the galaxy or whatever, but they're psychic beings that are crossing over from other planes of reality. So they don't so much travel here as they project here, and the things we see aren't so much real objects as they are our brains trying to interpret an experience we can't actually fully comprehend... or something.

If you're a mechanic you shower with GoJo .



Posted by: Can't resist temptation


Boy, talk about products that changed the world. I'm ghey enough to trade off with Fast Orange, but... The adolescent-fiction author Gene Olson, writing in the fifties about hot rod mechanics, described a guy getting cleaned up to meet a rich race-car promoter, and having the semi-circle of compressed white soap under his nails that was a close to having clean hands as a real mechanic ever got. And guys understood what he meant.


And then came GoJo. Invented as a way for the rubber workers in Akron to get that carbon-black off their everything, the shop that makes it now occupies the entire block that was once Goodyear Tire Rubber.

Unless they moved. I don't get to Akron as much as I used to.
