Sweden

The left is always telling us what a paradise Sweden is, and how we need to be more like them. Well, here's a longish thread that casts some doubt on how much truth there is behind that. Frankly, what's described here is terrifying, a nation of people who aren't individuals at all, but faceless cogs for the state to manipulate (wait, now I'm starting to see why the left likes Sweden). The thread ends by noting that Swedish is the only language that has a word that means “to cry while masturbating” - Gatrunka.

No Shit, Sherlock

The tragic — and overlooked — fallout from the ’60s sexual revolution


Look, I'll be the first to admit that my generation (coming of age in the 80s) hit the sweet spot for the sexual revolution – sexually active and free, but we had been raised by an earlier generation that still taught us traditional values. The Reagan Renaissance was reinforcing those values. We all had a lot of sex, but we also respected our partners and most of us still had an eye towards a spouse, a house and 2.4 vine-covered kids in the suburbs (yes, I'm generalizing massively here). Seems that we dropped the ball with our own kids, failing to pass on the traditional values and leaving them with just the “have lots of guilt-free sex” part, and that generation is producing kids that are totally lost, emptied out not just by meaningless sex, but also by a society that not only doesn't foster traditional values, it actively condemns them and pushes the opposite as a good thing. We're all hanging by our undies from Chesterton's Fence.

10 Willowed from the aspiring rapper thread:

The other day I watched a true crime show about some theater arts boy who killed his best friend (female) just to see what it was like.

As Leopold and Loeb discovered nearly a century earlier, just because someone is a sociopath, it doesn't follow that one is a criminal genius. At trial, he looked at the victim's friends and family straight in the eye and told them he wasn't the murderer. But on the police video of his first police interrogation, he told the cops his friend was "raped and murdered" before the autopsy was even completed. This was even before all the DNA evidence was found on the ropes and duct tape that he threw out.

--------------

FDR had been pushing a more aggressive stance toward the Axis for a while (Lend-Lease wasn't exactly neutral, nor were the Flying Tigers). But the interest just wasn't there at the time in the nation as a whole. There was a lot of wide-spread isolationism, and a view that what happened in Eurasia wouldn't spill over to the Western Hemisphere.

Roosevelt apparently didn't like Hitler, and even the Molotov-Ribbontrop Pact didn't change that.

128 Re "reach out"":

As far back as I think 1985, I was in a video production class at Long Beach City College, and another student was producing a program.

I don't know what the show was about, but they wanted to use this song that went...

Reach out and touch
somebody's hand
make this world a better place
if you can...


They must have played that song at least 30 times in just that *one* evening. By the end of that class I never wanted to hear that song again, and still don't.

(And BTW, even then, there were some moron-friendlies around. I remember one woman produced a comedy sketch about the vapidness of people giving money to try and end hunger in Ethiopia.)

It's a beautiful song.

But Norm Greenbaum's a Jew, and he just wanted a hit, and so he used a Christian theme for the song, because he perceived the moneymaking potential. He's been very straightforward about that.

So even though I like the song (it's hard not to), it always comes off as cynical and exploitative to me.

Yerch. I like the company I work for. But they are yuge on that phrase, and want us to Do Our Part, and encourage us to participate in charities, and make our charity some kind of virtue signal to show The Community that We Care.

I refuse to participate. My charity is private, between me and the Lord.

273 >>213 I've heard mixed about Godzilla King of the Monsters. It was directed by Michael Doherty, who has done some cool horror movies (Krampus, Trick R Treat).

I recently re-watched the first one and liked it even better the second time. It would probably be great with a good sound system, sounded really powerful on my cheapass computer speakers and woofer. I think because I watched it on Amazon they had an ad for the 2nd movie on my prime start page today and that's the only reason I knew about it.

I like the atmosphere of the first movie. You're a tiny speck in a bigger world than you imagined and oops, you're about to be squashed. From the sound to the special effects to the eerie music they do a good job of relaying that atmosphere.

Oddly, I never came across that word in the nine years I lived there.
"Gatrunka" doesn't sound Swedish to me. It's probably borrowed from a foreign language. Although I can believe there's a lot of crying while masturbating nowadays - and not just in Sweden. You can thank #wokefeminism for that, I suppose.

Now, now, Eris. I use "ducks in a row" to refer to myself getting chores done to enable some other exploit to occur. Today, I was getting my ducks in a row so that I can hit the tarmac at 0-dark thirty for a road trip to Arizona.

Ducks aligned included: clean up shop, put some trash away, lock up big shop, clean out Suburban, put road tools, and the "Arizona box" into the Suburban, gas up Suburban, arrange for care for the kitteh, and buy some beer to take south with. Lotta ducks.

368 Joe Rogan's podcast is a treasure in the modern world. Joe ain't a super-genius pontificating, but he does have a popular platform (the modern left makes me hate the word "platform") that features conversations with folks you may never hear otherwise. Often you are not hearing conversations with these people for a good reason (it's a waste of everyone's time), other times it's simply because the opinion expressed in not popular. Regardless, in my mostly useless regard, Joe's podcast is a good thing.

MeTV ran the one and only color episode of Perry Mason a few days ago. It was a test. They were going to film the next season, if there was one, in color and tested it out. But there wasn't a next season.

Raymond Burr had started putting on weight the last season or two.

385 The drab sadness of Swedish "style" was frequently mocked by the French. When I was there, everyone was walking around in well-washed cheap-looking clothing, because that's what the average working stiff can afford.
It's difficult to compare one's buying power in Sweden, because some things are very expensive and others are really cheap. We rarely ate in restaurants or even "street kitchens" because it was prohibitively expensive. You simply don't have the disposable income for that.
I imagine things are worse now. All of those muzzies cost a lot to support.

390 Speaking of Sweden, I was flipping through an IKEA catalog the other day and it was all about how to comfortably fit a large number of people into a dinky apartment. One of the "families" it featured had a family of 5 (including a baby - they were white in the catalog but you know that in Sweden only muslim emigrants have 3 kids) living in a one-bedroom flat. Not a prob with IKEA's storage units and handy dividers and sleeper sofas! Another had parents and a 10 year old kid in an efficiency, sleeping in the same room, with a couple of pullout beds.

Apparently cramming families into tiny apartments and thinking that that is nice and cozy and cute because of IKEA's great storage solutions is how the Swedes roll these days, but good luck trying to sell Americans on that.

Keeping in mind that I left there in 1996, the "wealth" is an illusion, as is "free" healthcare. You're paying 30+% in taxes, depending on which landsting you live in. The local government (landsting) provides all of your services.
Everything you buy has a 24% "moms" (tax) built into the price. My digestive system went to hell when I moved there, because I couldn't afford protein or fresh produce. We lived on bread and cheese sandwiches and sad potato/pasta/rice casseroles. Ground beef was a treat. A hunk of meat for beef stew likewise. Back then, you could only buy whole chickens that weighed a little over 2 lbs. No chicken breast for $1.99 (I don't care if it's Mexican chicken). Root vegetables were kind of a staple. I baked my own bread to save money.

Put it this way - I always had an eagle eye for staples and stocked up whenever I found something on sale.

I got that impression too. I didn't actually know that a Joo wrote it. The Tribe has done some legit GOOD Christian songs, Christmas anyway; Irving Berlin anyone?

I thought Spirit In The Sky was done by a young-and-dumb Christian band from the sticks. There is a lot of crap Christian music out there; Carman is particularly horrible.

I don't suppose I'm going anywhere with this post, other than to say, if you're going to write Christian music, be Irving Berlin or early P.O.D., and don't be Carman.

450 The Sloop New Dawn featured about 122 sq. ft. of actual cabin sole, belowdecks.

But as all of the seating, sleeping berths, lockers (cabinets & closets, y'all), and shelving...yes, you heard me right, Ace...shelv. ing. were factory designed and installed, I still enjoyed no shortage of storage capacity, seating and sleeping area. Had a fully functioning head (bathroom) with sink & shower, galley (kitchen) with fridge, freeze, two basin sink and two burner range with a chicken-sized oven.

It was no problem to store a six week's food supply on board, a half-dozen long arms, a dozen pistols, ammo for all and the cleaning gear, ear muffs, etc that goes with 'em.

Rack of nice suits and other respectable wear in the hanging locker (closet), and built in drawers aplenty for undies, tees, socks, belts, etc.

Point being? It's not the mere fact of "square footage" that makes a place.

It's how that square footage is arranged and equipped that makes *all* the difference.

And, I'm very seriously contemplating a return to the water. Something in the fifty foot class, this time.

A building made with "post and purlin" construction, commonly used for barns and equipment sheds. Also know as "post-frame buildings".

There is no foundation as such. The classic version: you auger a row of holes into the ground (well a row for each side) and plant telephone poles, tamp them into place, and link the poles together with horizontal 2X6's, and place roof trusses on top. Clad the whole thing with metal siding and roofing.

The more deluxe version? Auger your holes, place Sonotube concrete forms, pour reinforced concrete piers, with steel flanges to bolt your pillars to. The pillars are bundles of 2X6, usually. That's how my 32X60 big shop is built. And it has a 6" poured concrete floor with radiant heat pipes built into it.

471 Re: School supplies scam

Here's something I've noticed, though I will preface it by noting Little Clingette is in private school, not public.

If you just go down to the school and say "No, we aren't going to do that", the school tends to leave you alone on issues like that.

One year, I had the school asking me to bring in a 12 pack of Kleenex boxes, 4 containers of hand sanitizer, 2 boxes of markers, 2 boxes of colored pencils, 24 black ink pens, 24 blue ink pens, and 4 500 page packs of loose leaf notebook paper in addition to binders and other things that seemed reasonable.

So I went to the teacher and said "That seems like too much stuff, I'm not going to buy all of that".

The teacher said that they stored it up so students didn't run out. I told her Clingette would keep all of those things in her backpack and as she ran out, I'd buy her more.

The teacher said that's not how it worked. I told her that she didn't understand, I was telling her how we were going to do it, not offering an alternative plan. She seemed perplexed. But then she said, "okay, that's fine".

Nobody ever takes the time to just say "Nope, not going to do it." That's why they just keep running their schemes and scams.

There is the ol' "Pole in the barn" "paradox" exercise in Special Relativity.

You have a long pole and a barn of the same length as the pole from front door to back. The pole is moving at some speed, an appreciable fraction of c, where the pole is now 1/2 of its original length from the frame of the barn. You let the pole enter the barn, and can close both doors with the pole inside. You then open the back door quickly and the let the pole through.

However, from the frame of the pole, the barn is moving at high speed and the length between doors is 1/2. From the frame of the pole, the pole won't fit inside the barn.

The exercise is resolving the apparent paradox.

Something similar happened in Cherry Creek, one of the wealthier areas of Denver. They tore down a lot of businesses and put up huge complexes of micro-units, and didn't bother to provide parking for them. So, all the residents parked their cars at nearby Cherry Creek Mall. The mall no longer had enough parking for its customers, so they actually had to start charging for parking. At a mall!

We never tried it, but considering how amazing the local stuff was, that's high praise. And no, we don't have that kind of money ... And yes my uncle was going on about how liberal the Reps were (This was 2015 and I agreed). But hey. We just graduated our youngest, and after 18 years of private Christian school, we have two amazing kids ... and can finally take vacations on our own. Oh yeah, they are both going to Christian colleges, where get this, the schools use their endowments to help with tuition.

"Little Boxes" is a song written and composed by Malvina Reynolds in 1962, which became a hit for her friend Pete Seeger in 1963, when he released his cover version. The song is a political satire about the development of suburbia, and associated conformist middle-class attitudes. It mocks suburban tract housing as "little boxes" of different colors "all made out of ticky-tacky", and which "all look just the same." "Ticky-tacky" is a reference to the shoddy material supposedly used in the construction of the houses.

And the funny thing is, those 1960's suburban tract homes were mostly well-built, and were on pretty large lots, and those neighborhoods now are mighty desirable places to live. And the homes were not all alike; there were a number of standard plans, and they tried to mix them up a bit. It's the modern-day subdivisions that have row upon row of identical houses on postage-stamp lots, all with the same color paint, or siding, or roof shingles. Malvina Reynolds song is a lot more apropos today than it was in 1960.

Kid was Hurricane Dorian.

Kid shrugged him off and kept up the slow-robot-walk.

In celebration of gender-fluid fashion and inclusion of all kinds, the queer-style digital magazine dapperQ threw a runway party at the start of New York Fashion Week, filling the Beaux-Arts Court of the Brooklyn Museum with invited guests and nearly 2,000 members of the public.

It was the sixth annual Queer Runway Show at the museum for dapperQ, which uses the rallying cry of "ungendering fashion." Marking its 10th year in business, the site enlisted 10 brands Thursday night to dress an array of models of all colors, ages and sizes, large and small, on the gender binary and off.

One model used a wheelchair and another a single crutch. Professional trans models strutted and camped alongside YouTube and Instagram influencers. Zach Barack, the openly trans actor who appeared in the recent blockbuster "Spider-Man: Far from Home," was among the walkers.

I enjoyed that show. It's funny! And Mary Louise Parker is gorgeous, and spends a fair bit of time naked.

It just... sort of stretched credulity at times. There were so many situations where she just... really should've been dead. But she lucked out through some deus ex machina, and lived to deal another day.

597 I was trying to find a picture of "Rainbow Valley" which was a Dogrib Indian community on the outskirts of the town (now city) of Yellowknife, NWT. The village was strung out along a road running the length of Latham Island, a long narrow island in one of the bays of Great Slave Lake. There was room for a row of houses on each side of the road, and not much more.

I was there in 1980, and saw it as it was then, and it was kind of charming, each house brightly painted in a different color from its neighbor. And I do mean "brightly". Pastel was a dirty word there, I think. Sadly, I think it has been modernized out of existence.

If a normal could prove that global warming is man made and it is causing these natural disasters, I would be willing to listen to them. If a normal could prove it sans politics, we would be all in on at least the idea of making things better. But the left wants us to believe that capitalism causes weather events. They want us to dump our way of life based on Algore. I want some normals to show it to me, to make it clear to everyone. If they can't do this, then why not?

I haven't read the thread you mention here. But what I know about the left is that they like all the worst things about Europe and hate all the good things. They want the inefficient socialism but could not care less about the joie de vivre. Basically what the want is for the US to run like the DMV.

Most of these people that think we should be more like Europe have never been there. These libs that defended Chirac's France after 9/11 woudn't have known France from a whole in the ground other than it opposed a Republican.

These people today want to live in Orwell's worst nightmare. Of course then have never read Orwell either, and if they did, some socialist party member told them the lie that he was against American society.

I have had it with these lefty dullards who learned no history and have no clue. And damn their parents, what the hell were they doing? I get a parent can not force his kid to be a normal, but there has to be some questioning here. We like to bash Millenials for their lack of historical knowledge and lack of civics.

The corporations believe twitter is real life, that is the problem. If they just ignored the place for a week or two, they could keep doing what they are doing. They don't even want to see if the left boycotts them and it hurts sales, If they get too many tweets, they buckle.

If someone were smart, and the country is really this divided, then someone would be starting all kinds of businesses that don't buckle to the professional left.

crap, it wasn't long ago when you had to be 16 to smoke cigs and they even had smoking areas for students. The left calls this an accomplishment. Now you have to be 21 to even buy nicotine replacement therapies to get off cigs. To me this shows we are a society of perpetual adolescents. You can join the Army at 17 but have to wait 4 years for a beer or a smoke?
Yes smoking is bad for you. But the real issue is this nation is going backwards. Childhood is gaining ground. I would not be surprised if they make the age to buy tobacco and booze 30 in a few years. Too bad the people who are supposed to teach these kids have no shame at all.

709 the funny thing about brown liquor is that it is any booze aged in wood.
You could put vodka or gin in wood and it would be brown Some say they can only handle white spirits and the brown stuff is too heavy or makes them sick. it could be the wood but my guess is it is psychological. The exemption is fake brown liquor that has had coloring added.

To each his own, I don't care if you like white spirits or brown. But that this county is giving up beer and replacing it with low alcohol seltzer water can't be a good sign. People will get into the most absurd things if they think it is now cool Again, entrepreneurs should take not. Tell them seltzer is causing global warming and just sell them cans of tap water with a bit of booze.

Posted by: Miley, the Duchess at September 07, 2019 03:55 AM (NMAzL)

711 Quint dropping some booze knowledge:
1) the beer on whiskey mighty risky and whiskey on beer never fear is a load. It is a psych out. The only way this makes sense if you are guzzling beer and start guzzling whiskey. I get people have issues with certain drinks, mostly from past experiences, but it is all booze, the alcohol is the same.

2) the people who say tequila will F you up worse than other alcoholic drinks have no clue. Maybe you drank too much tequila but there is nothing special about it, unless you drank rot gut.

3) A lot of people say they can't drink red wine because of the sulfites. It turns out that white wine has more sulfites than red wine. And the FDA estimates that fewer than 1 percent of Americans are actually sulfite sensitive.

In fact, many who say they are sulfite sensitive say the wine they had traveling in Europe caused them no issues because it had no sulfites. It is true that your euro bottle does not say "contains sulfites" but it does. Only in America is it required to put on the bottle "contains sulfites" 99 percent of wine contains sulfites, it is a natural part of the wine making process.

4) Beer is not skunked because it was left out then refrigerated. Beer is only skunked when the hops react to solar rays. This is why beer in clear bottles and green bottles is often skunked. Those bottles can not block the solar rays that skunk beer. In fact, Miller high life for one is a beer in clear bottles that will never skunk because they use a hop extract that does not react to solar rays. As for Corona in clear bottles, and Heineken in green bottles, you are on your own.

i still like rum and cokes and don't care what so called aficionados think. in fact, I have been trending to old school America lagers and away from fru fru ipas and goses. Anyone who bad mouth's someone for what they drink is a wannabe and newbie. I have nothing against them, it is a learning experience. Most of the best of us drank American style pale lagers. And those that get into beer or wine inevitably change their tastes and go for things they used to think they never would.

Posted by: Miklos, culturally multiplicital at September 07, 2019 04:33 AM (QzkSJ)

715 well since this thread is as dead as a door nail. I might as well follow through with my point for posterity.

If you really want to learn about skunked beer try this. Take a clear bottled corona and put it in the sun for ten minutes. Then compare it to a corona in a can. Make sure you smell them as the skunking is really about smell. i don't want to call out too many companies here but you know the ones in clear bottles and even more so in green bottles. The Canadian beers and many from Germany go with green bottles.

At one point people asked why these companies went with clear and green bottles if it messed up their beer. Well, we all see that Corona is not in cans and also in brown bottles called Corona Familiar. Some have told me this is a different beer but I am not buying it. There is no proof of that at all.

Historically, imported Euro beer came in green bottles. Not just Euro, you had Canadian stuff like Moose Head. But you have so many from Europe like St. Paulie Girl, Becks, Heineken and others. It got to the point where green meant imported and sophisticated. That so many of them were skunked was a afterthought.

Now you have one of the most famous Euro lagers changing from green bottles to brown. That beer is Pilsnser Urquell. They listened and changed things up.


One might wonder why I propose Corona for a skunk test. They bash Corona and say is it has not flavor blah blah. That is my point, Corona is the best beer to do a skunk test on. There is nothing to hide with this beer. Compare a clear bottle left in the sun for ten minutes with a canned version. You won't forget the difference and will always understand what causes skunking from that day forward.

Some say they like the skunked tastes of Corona in clear bottles. That is fine, if you like it, you like it. There are also rumors that they do it on purpose. I promise you, they do not. The clear bottles are a marketing thing. And the green ones are really no better. The brown bottles do a better job but there is a reason more and more craft brewers are using cans.

725 There was an Andy Griffith show episode about Owls and bad luck. But I don't recall getting hit in the head was bad luck. So it is probably good luck.

729 Amazingly clueless analysis of #FentanylChina vis a vis Mutti Merkel. I actually LOLd a few times. Orangeman mean and unilateral, but Chermany will finesse, yesyes!

739 I'd love to stay and chat, but another home KSU football game awaits. A plucky band of pragmatists and I work the games to raise funds for our Constitution Bee.

We get there 4 hours early, set up a concession stand, and have other humble duties. The sweat equity is what funds our scholarship money and the running of a classic show of Americana. The bus I need to catch rolls at 6:30.

Shameless plug: Link in nic.

740 Be safe, Salty.

Have fun at the game.

Top o ta mornin to ya, gov'nor.


Good on you for getting the news to cover the bad people in Balt. Co.

The Left is racist, evil, and will not shut up about what we must do. I don't see how decent people can follow them. I guess the big lie works.

Now gtg.

747 "Lend-Lease wasn't exactly neutral, nor were the Flying Tigers." The AVG didn't fly their first mission until 20 Dec. 1941, nearly two weeks after Pearl Harbor.
