Tonight's ONT Knifed A Man At Popeyes, Just To Watch Him Feed

Hey everybody, happy Thursday! Kind of a crappy, rainy day here, but I had a Popeyes chicken sandwich for dinner.

How was it, you ask? It was good. I dunno if it's better than Chick-fil-A, but it was damn good. Had a hell of a time getting it, however. I had to kill fitty men.

Chicken Not Your Thing?


How about ham?

Ham vs Spam

James May made some wonderfully goofy programs when he wasn't doing Top Gear, and he continues to do so now when he isn't doing The Grand Tour. I once watched a 20 minutes show where he assembled a rotary dial telephone from its component parts. It's his goofy observations that make these things work, here he points out that “half of the word spam is the same as 2/3 of the word ham”. They must have had some great drugs in the 70s.

Government: We're Here For You!

Fallout boy.jpg

For your money, anyway. I find myself wondering how in the everloving fuck we got to where we are as a country. I mean, I do know, but the contrast between what we casually accept and where this country started is simply insane.


A Michigan Man Underpaid His Property Taxes By $8.41. The County Seized His Property, Sold It—and Kept the Profits.


Hundreds of millions of dollars stolen from citizens to fund a leviathan state. Fund what? Stuff like this:


NYC pays ‘rubber room’ teacher $1.7M over 20 years after sex abuse claims

Or else to tie their constituents to deals that politicians make to stroke their own egos and virtue signal:


Georgetown Suing to Escape Disastrous Green Energy Deal


This is why strictly limited government is a prerequisite for the blessings of liberty. Without strict limits on the size and scope of government, you can not have any liberty, because an unrestrained government will usurp liberty step by step and bit by bit until it is utterly gone.

A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.

1 Flying out to St James
Gonna try me a lot of peaches
Flying out to St James
Gonna taste me a lot of peaches
Flying out to St James
Gonna have me a lot of peaches
Flying out to St James
Ghislaine picked me some brand new peaches

Peaches come from afar
Enticed them with cash and access to stars
And a splash of threads from Rodeo
If I had my little way
A new peach I'd have every day
As I lay out on my table

Flyin' Bill out here to St James
Gonna let him enjoy some peaches
Bringing out a Duke of House Windsor
Gonna let him have some peaches
Ehud Barak's been here
But never owned up to eating peaches
I'd bring out the other Barack
But he ain't too big on peaches

I take martinis with a lolita twist
We laugh at how our wives are all rightly pissed
As we bask in underage women
But their faux hate don't mean shit
For at my Manhattan penthouse table they'll sit
Grinning next to Katie Couric

Millions of bennies
As a gift to Fergie
Gave me permanent access
I give Andy peaches for free
Millions to William
On behalf of Hillary
Nets me even more friendships
For my degeneracy
Having done 18 months
Now I am free
Begging another prosecutor
A deal for leniency
It's Hill- look out!

10 SPAM is actually an acronym for Shoulder Pork And Ham.

Armond Hammer was producing bacon at the time and wanted to expand. So, started making canned meat from pork shoulder clod and ham chopped and mixed with spices. When it came time to name it, iirc, it was his son or son in law that came up with the name.

I realize the propaganda has it full of pig nose, ears and all that, but it's just shoulder and ham.

So, the bun was amazing. The breast was incredible. Only CFA and Popeyes can cook a chicken breast (what's up KFC, where's your sammich) while every other fast food place's chicken is basically some shit they got from sysco or china.

So last week I bought some acrylic inks on amazon for model making. All well and good, except that instead of the black ink that I ordered they sent Prussian Blue (the inventory tag had been mislabeled, which I explained in detail). All well and good, things happen, and it's not like it's something critical.

I start the return, and amazon tells me to keep the wrong bottle while they send the right one out. Cool, thanks guys. The replacement bottle arrived this afternoon.

Prussian Blue.

Obviously from the same bin, and the retards didn't bother checking that the inventory tag matched what was supposed to be in the bubble bag EVEN THOUGH I TOLD THEM THAT IT WAS MISLABELED.

It took me for fucking ever to get the sandwich when I serendipitously found one that actually had the thing (even when they had signs up saying they were out).

68 The loathsome Trotskyite socialist Seattle city council member, Kshama Sawant, appears to have kept her city council seat.

She was way behind on election night, but Washington State is vote-by-mail, and Washington merely requires that ballots be postmarked by Election Day, so legal ballots come in for days after Election Day. Leftists vote late, apparently, so Sawant has been catching up, and will probably go into the lead tomorrow.

Before she appeared before her supporters on Election Night, they played the "Internationale".

It would be cool if people showed up at the Seattle city council meeting next August 21st wearing "NKVD" t-shirts, to celebrate the anniversary of Comrade Trotsky's encounter with an ice pick.

The words of the gradual come from Psalm 37:

Os justi meditabitur sapientiam:
et lingua ejus loquetur judicium.
Lex Dei ejus in corde ipsius:
et non supplantabuntur gressus ejus.
Alleluia.

The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
and his tongue speaks what is just.
The law of his God is in his heart:
and his feet do not falter.

93 From the last thread, on Rodrigo Borgia's ideas about polygamy in Christianity:

"Polygamy was forbidded for elders but okay for everyone else".

But if you let everyone else in the congregation have multiple wives, then you don't have anyone who meets the criteria of elder to replace the elders when the elders die.

"Polygamy isn't forbidden in the Old Testament"

In Genesis, the first marriage that is depicted is that of Adam and Eve. This marriage was instituted as the first and most basic form of governance, was instituted when Man was still perfect, and as such sets the pattern as the ideal state of marriage: one man, married to one woman.

The first listed polygamist, who took two wives, is noted for 1) having two wives and 2) being a proud murderer.

All the other polygamists listed are variously shown as having miserable home lives:
- Jacob, with Leah and Rachel: the sisters were always fighting and scheming against each other, and his sons conspiring to sell one of their own to foreigners because Dad liked him best.
- Abraham, with Sarah and Hagar: the legal childless wife being cruel to the fertile concubine, to the point that concubine and child were driven into the desert rather than endure.
- Elkanah, with Hannah and Peninnnah: the fertile and less-loved wife constantly tormenting the childless and more-loved wife, and making the husband miserable as a consequence.
- David, with Michal and the rest of his harem: she got cursed with barrenness for mocking him, and the kids he had by his other wives ended up causing a civil war.
- Solomon, with his 300 wives and 700 concubines: they seduced him away from God and convinced him to set up altars to their gods. As punishment he lost most of the kingdom and his son became a tyrant.

Even if it is never specifically forbidden, polygamy is always depicted - at best! - as miserable and foolish. At worst? Deadly.

Only a fool would choose it.

Cough... Trinity... cough....

In point of fact, polygamy was very, very common in Jewish culture at the time.
If Jesus had wanted to ban it, he would have said so. Directly. You're parsing the words like a lawyer.
---
Wow that first shot is mega-dumb. Just because the Trinity (which is more doctrine than straight scripture, anyway), it doesn't mean that Jesus was evoking anywhere near the same numerical mystery in marriage.

I doubt it was as common as you make it. It was more the style of Hebrews of that time to "put away" one wife and take another (which is why it is addressed). There was definitely more serial polygamy going on (mainly men).

But nothing I said requires polygamy to be rare.

Ban it? He was killed as a rebel. What kingdom has Jesus ever had on this Earth that he could ban something.

Since this is such a brilliant approach--what else did Jesus ban? I think Jesus mainly said "If you love me, you will keep my commandments". His model is all conditional: Let him who has ears, let him hear. To those that can receive his teaching...

He didn't ban anything. Therefore your challenge is feckless. The pattern of Jesus is to reference the prohibition of the Law, and often he recommends newer and better patterns which are the "more excellent way" and the "life more fully" for those that follow him.

The Law is abstract and broad. Jesus is the Incarnation, he is the Word (abstract principle) made flesh. We emulate him. We no longer concern ourselves with following the broad rungs and remedies of the law, but try to follow in His footsteps.

That pattern is repeated and repeated in Jesus teaching. The old practices aren't banned. We are entreated to live a fuller life, to follow him.

It is distinct and exemplified.

99 Insider people are idiots and can't make a decent documentary on mail processing.

Mail can be sorted down to the stop of the carrier's route in about 5 passes for every mail pretty much at any processing center in the US, and generally is done on multiple machines. There is a pattern to sorting it so you can get it that detailed with minimum processing.

It is fascinating how it is handled, there is a lot to be said about the problems with the USPS, but the technical and logistical end is pretty good.

I used to work on a multistation mail processing machine until the were phased out by the Optical Code Reading machines and the Database Sorting Machines (pictured in that stupid click)

100 Hey everybody.

WeirdDave, thanks for this ONT, because your timing could not be better. This is my ACTUAL latest Fast Foodie column that appeared today in the Westminster Herald-Journal. Not a joke.

TALKIN' TURKEY ABOUT KFC'S CHICKEN: STUNT SANDWICHES HAVE GOTTA STOP

By [qdpsteve]
The Fast Foodie

WARNING: This is NOT your usual Fast Foodie column. It's challenging. It's confrontational. It's downright angry!

What has the Foodie in a froth, you might ask? All these krazy kookoo KFC stunt sandwiches! Let's dial the clock all the way back to... September. I wrote about my hunt for the Popeye's Chicken Sandwich. A month later, I found it. It was good. But if you'll recall, my nightmare wasn't never getting the sandwich. It was having to return to, of all places, K-Funky-C.

Why was that? I dunno. But at almost a dozen Westminster-area KFCs the past couple years, all offered me the same dry, near-flavorless chicken with a thin, limp coating. If it weren't for the Colonel's packets of hot sauce (actually Frank's Red Hot), there wouldn't have been much flavor to enjoy at all. Don't even get me started on the mashed potatoes. In the 1970s, Harlan himself called the then-newly reformulated product "wallpaper paste." Today it's still paste, it just sticks a little better to the ribs.

Now let's flash back even further to the early 2010s! President Obama! Slightly lower gas prices! Taylor Swift break-ups! And, the Double Down Sandwich! Two fried chicken patties in place of a bun, with cheese and bacon crammed up the middle? What happened to their brains in the Bluegrass State? It later led to some more ordinary, somewhat edible regular chicken sandwiches, but then those got pulled. What for? A FLAMIN' HOT CHEETOS sandwich coated with flecks of spicy chips and matching cheese sauce! Forget personal outrage. I had to begin boycotting local KFCs just to protect my heart, stomach and colon health.

So what's KFC got planned next? My editor just informed me: A chicken sandwich with KRISPY KREME DOUGHNUTS FOR A BUN. No, you're not hallucinating. It's a shame Harlan Sanders himself passed away in 1980, because here's how I predict he'd react to the lunatics in Louisville making up these monstrosities. He'd take his stiff Southern Colonel Cane and whip their wide back ends a good one. Then he'd grab their greasy lapels and order them to do three things:

One, get rid of the stunt sandwiches! No more doubling down on ghastly gastronomical goop! No more Cheetos! No more doughnuts!

Two, put your money where your mouths are and IMPROVE THE ORIGINAL PRODUCT. Better quality chicken, robust coatings made with the original 11 herbs and spices (MSG doesn't count), crisper coleslaw lettuce, mashed potatoes that don't taste like they came from Home Depot. How about making ordinary fried breasts, thighs, drumsticks, tenders, coleslaw, taters and everything else taste like they used to taste, that is to say, GOOD?

Three, promote the improved KFC! Invent a new sales line like, "No more stunts, just tasty classics the way you remember them. Won't you give us another chance, America?"

And then, we can all enjoy a true national miracle: the day KFC Made Finger Licking Great Again.

101 The whole "vote by mail" thing is the most disgusting perversion of representative government I've ever seen, and given what we've seen since "Motor Voter" that's saying something.

Oregon has vote-by-mail too, but at least Oregon requires that the ballots be in the hands of election officials by 8 PM Election Night (you can drop your ballot off in an approved location if its too late to mail). None of this crap of ballots coming in days after Election Day.

Given how successful the left has been in Washington with late ballots, I'm sure Oregon will soon adopt Washington's system.

Oh well, Washington voters are continuing to vote down the legislature's attempt to un-ban affirmative action. The media describes the opponents of the measure as "Chinese immigrants" - it is apparently OK to smear people as immigrants and minorities if they vote the wrong way.

I didn't pick it up from any Men's Bible Study Group, because I've never been to a study group that is more analytical than it is social. (And that's okay, really).

Your presumption on how I pick up my religious readings matters to me about as much as a typical progressives belief that I just copy Rush Limbaugh or worship Trump. Sure! I got to just be cribbing from somebody!

154 JAS, as I understand it, Harlan sold KFC to his franchisers for about $3 million in 1970. True, that was good money back then.

But... then in 1973, three measly years later, the franchisers sold the company to Heinlein... for something like almost $80 million.

That's not my fantasy impeachment vote; that's my prediction of how it'll actually happen.

My fantasy impeachment vote is that the vote will be held late Christmas Eve with the announcements going out to all the Senators sometime on the 24th. The acquittal vote will be 53-0 because none of the Democrats showed up.

Then, because all the Republican senators stayed in Washington for Christmas, there's a huge shindig for the Senate and their families at Blair House with presents and Santa and the whole shebang. Of course, none of the Democrats show up for that either.

Then the president goes on Twitter.

174 True story: 38 year old daughter with Masters degree calls the XO earlier tonight wanting to know how to get the inner lid off a home canned jar of something or another. Evidently she'd been trying to pry it up with a knife or something, but figured the XO would know a better way. XO says "church key". Have any of you tried to explain a church key to someone who has always used an electric can opener? It's almost as bad as explaining a skate key because to explain the skate key, you have to describe the roller skates that need the skate key.

I finally ask if SIL has a multi tool. Evidently no, if you can imagine that. When last heard from, SIL was headed to Cabela's to get a church key. I just hope he finds someone old enough to understand what he's looking for.

I agree. That could be a function of the kind of person that Trump is.

Most politicians are reactive. They work in an environment where they've had to cooperate with their peers to get anything done - whether friend or foe. When they get to actually run things, by nature they react to external events, because it's in that instance where they get to enact change (don't let a crisis go to waste).

It took FDR to establish that a president needed to take the first 100 days to assert themselves, and most presidents try to do that as well. If they're lucky, they coast after that, let the legislatures do the heavy lifting, and wait for the next crisis to react to.

Trump is different. As a CEO, he knows that he generates his own reality distortion field. As a counterpuncher, he knows that he defends by attacking. Combining the two, he's always acting on the 100 days mode. Always attacking, always campaigning, always selling. His opponents can't get into his OODA loop, and his allies don't get into it either.

We'll miss him when he finally leaves the scene, in 2025.

Hardee's did have, don't know if they still do as there are no Hardee's around me, a Horsey Sauce in a packet which was great on their chili dogs. I always took extra packets home because of breakfast sausage biscuits.

Gold's Horseradish is the best for making cocktail sauce for shrimp. Just make sure you buy the white one, not the red jar as the red horseradish is watered down, at least to my tastes; others would call it mild. But what's the point of mild horseradish? An oxymoron if there ever was one.

And he will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and some to plow his ground and to reap his harvest, and to make his implements of war and the equipment of his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive orchards and give them to his servants. He will take the tenth of your grain and of your vineyards and give it to his officers and to his servants. He will take your male servants and female servants and the best of your young men and your donkeys, and put them to his work. He will take the tenth of your flocks, and you shall be his slaves. And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the Lord will not answer you in that day."

All well and good, except that instead of the black ink that I ordered they sent Prussian Blue (the inventory tag had been mislabeled, which I explained in detail). All well and good, things happen, and it's not like it's something critical.

I start the return, and amazon tells me to keep the wrong bottle while they send the right one out. Cool, thanks guys. The replacement bottle arrived this afternoon.

Prussian Blue.

Obviously from the same bin, and the retards didn't bother checking that the inventory tag matched what was supposed to be in the bubble bag EVEN THOUGH I TOLD THEM THAT IT WAS MISLABELED.

I think that was one of Samuel Rutherford's strongest points. The Lord was the original king of Israel. When Israel wanted a king to be like the neighbor nations, the Lord said that they had rejected him.

So Kingship is a structure that the Lord foresaw and bore and accommodated, but it was not his pattern. But it was in no way a Divine Order (outside of Jesus, that is).

Posted by: Cicero (@cicero) at November 07, 2019 10:54 PM (XVuno)

the idea is to cleanse your palate between various sushi pieces.

As for wasabi the real, fresh stuff is much more nuanced and is becoming more available than the paste. Of course in a high end sushi joint, the chef would apply the correct amount of wasabi to the piece he is making But I don't see that much even in decent places.

I dont' know why, I get people have different tastes. But a chef should season the food to where he believes it is at its best. We are long past the era when pepper and salt were only applied at the table.

I am not saying don't use the soy and wasabe. i use it from time to time. But it would be nice if the sushi chef applied it when making the sushi

My favorite Colonel Sanders story: he was apparently something of a jack-leg medic in the extremely rural area where he lived at one point. He would come and sew you up if you needed stitches and so on.
Once he was called in for a difficult labor. He recognized that the situation was above his pay grade and went to town for the "real" doctor.
The doctor was drunk and didn't want to come.
Sanders brought him back at gun point.

True story, apparently.

337 "I am a bit tired of Millenials not knowing anything about previous eras. I realize things happened before my time and I try to know a bit about them. Do Millenials not watch old films or tv shows?"

About 10 years ago, I worked with 2 20 somethings who didn't know who Paul Newman was, which shocked me. They both proudly told me they made a point of never watching movies made before 1990.

I can sorta of see how that happened. When there were only 3 TV stations, plus PBS, teens like me watched the "Late Show" and other old movies on TV. So we came to appreciate stars like Bogart and Bacall. They were part of our growing up, even if they died before we were born. Young people today don't have the experience of starting to watch, say, Double Indemnity, on the Late,Late Show because there wasn't anything else on and then realizing that hey, this is really damn good.

Being proud of your ignorance and close-mindedness, though, is really quite another thing.

Absolute pressure versus relative pressure. 15 psi is indeed one atmosphere at sea level. Raise the pressure cooker to 15 psig (gauge pressure), and the absolute pressure in the vessel is 30 psi.

ex: Street, Avenue, Boulevard, Drive, Circle, Loop, Way, Place, blahblahblah.... and THEN, they don't dispense with identical house-numbers on the various similarly-named streets...

ex: 1001 Main St., which might be only one block over from 1001 Main Ave., and another block away from 1001 Main Dr., and on and on and on...

On the other hand, well, it's not really the PO's fault but let's just say a LOT of people don't get their *own* mail because of this bs.

Pressure frying is ideal for chicken and was one of the tricks he learned to make it so good. It keeps much more moisture in the chicken. Another benefit was tenderizing tougher chicken meat, but that's not as important now since they've bred them to be more tender.

377 Well, I mean look how it turned out.

As soon as Saul was named, just about his first act was to defy the Lord's command.

Then He refused to relinquish power when the Lord anointed another. Being ruled by men is to always be under the thumb of the ambitious.

Basically, reinforces what I was saying about patterns in the last thread.

Abstract idea of Kingship: not ideal, you suffer from the sins of the ruler.

Only one man was fit for the pattern known as Kingship: Yeshua bin Yosef. He is the King.

The pattern of kingship: faulty idea.

Jesus kingship: The Lion lies down with the lamb (or whatever idyllic pictures suit you better) and Justice reigns.

The study that I've done in the OT, really confirms that there is something specific about Hebron. The Lord tells the Israelites not to build his house until he shows them where he wants it built.

It's curious.

382 Wasabi is good. Clean heat without the linger. Interesting.

Sriracha is not bad, but usually the heat overwhelms the flavor if you are using the sauce straight on something. There are a shit ton of ingredients in sriracha (ton of garlic) and if diluted, you can taste them much better.

Standard Cayenne hot sauce is quite good on the right food. Nice pepper flavor. Usually a pretty good heat, but nothing overwhelming unless they are boosting the sauce with Cap.

I was just guessing though I have not had sriracha in some time. I was talking the "Rooster Sauce", Hong Fuy or whatever they were called, not any other sauce. I could look it up but I don't recall what most people think of as Srriracha as being demonstrably hotter than secret aardvark. I will check it and am not sure about this.

People got into Srriacha imo because of the garlic and other flavors. Same with Secret Aardvark. It is hot enough but the other flavors are what make it a good sauce.

You might be right, the 'rooster sauce' stuff (with the bird on the bottle) was the standard. It is quite possible the stuff we were making was concentrated above the levels because it was going to be added by the restaurant to a watery dish.

428 What's "keta" salmon? It's good, whatever it is, place had it for $5/lb - wild caught, fresh [I questioned the butcher, she said everyone was asking - it was not farmed, no dye, and fresh] . Did a spice rub on it, cedar plank grilled, with grilled asparagus and some Monterey pinot noir. We figured the meal, which was definitely restaurant quality, woulda been at least $75-85 out. Cost us about $22 - with leftovers.


And I really should at least go decap/resize 9mm brass [I can drink and still do brass prep, which is good for both my drinking and shooting hobbies], but my olympian indolence prevents it.


Good fish. Really picked up the smoke flavor this time, maybe because I "pre-grilled" the plank for 1O min. before flipping it and putting the fish on.

I hear ya. the guys that follow traditional training are as militaristic about it as one could be. Of course the Japanese are historically militaristic. Then again, the French used to be the same way in fine dining.

If you train under a traditional sushi chef, it could be years before you ever cut a piece of fish or for sure before you make a sushi piece

As for the Asian/sushi thing. Again, I see it at super markets. And like you say, it if the norm in areas with few Japanese around. Obviously there is a cultural reason why a Japanese person would be more interested in Japanese cuisine, just like an Italian-American is more likely to get into Italian cuisine than say, Indian. But still, it is almost a rule that you have to be Asian to prepare sushi in front of people. The customers expect it. That is the interesting part to me.

There are certainly many Americans that get really into Japanese, Chinese, or Mexican cuisine. And no ones DNA makes then a good cook

Taste is heavily conditioned on what you are eating with the meal, plus other environmental factors.

I remember I had a diet sprite when I was maybe 8 after swimming in my Great Uncle's pool in El Paso. It was the best tasting soft drink I had ever had. Never ever tasted like that again.

So was it the heat? The chlorine from the pool? The dehydration? The whiff of grapes from his vines around the pool? Joy and wonder of being a kid? I dunno, but it is a treasured memory.

Pressure frying is something I've wanted to try in the back of my mind for a while. The trouble is regular pressure cookers are not rated for it -- the seals aren't rated for the high oil temperature.

Commercial pressure fryers are big and expensive restaurant grade equipment. They do make some home usable stove top pressure fryers, but they are expensive, $350+.

An easy one is drink something with heavy corn syrup (like Mountain Dew) and then eat a piece of Milk Chocolate. Does not taste right, does it.

I ran into a strange one:
About a month ago, I had gone into my vape shop to get juice. They only had one bottle of my normal (I usually buy 2.) Instead I also got a bottle of a new flavor (Stravarian Donut, if you are curious- supposed to be a strawberry donut with chocolate mixed in.)

I start using the liquid and happen to drink a mello yello zero (canned, I can never find it in any other container) and it tasted off. Chemical, sharp, almost acrid. I actually thought it was the soda, maybe they had got the mix wrong or even contaminated it with the line cleaning solution (a small amount, it happens more often than you think.) But the next can was the same way. Then the second case.

I then thought to myself, what changed. The only thing I could think of was the juice. So I went to the vapoe shop and got some more of my regular and put the new stuff in the drawer. Started vaping that. The next day, drank a mello yello zero, and it tasted the way it 'should.'

My guess is the sweetener in the vape juice was similar or identical to something in the mello yello zero used for the same purpose. So one kind of immunized me to the other.

It is front wheel drive, and has a 2 cylinder air-cooled opposed engine, that resembles a BMW motorcycle engine. It is a "Tigre" model, which means it has a 2-barrel carb, and more horsepower, and it has a cable drive tach, and faux tiger-skin vinyl on the seats.

The basic problem with the Japanese is that they have no intermediate settings. There is "do not" and there is "overdo to a ridiculous extreme".

I was just looking. As you age, the density and sensitivity of taste buds decreases. You lose some and the ones that remain aren't as sensitive.

For women this starts to occur at about age 40, but with men about age 50 roughly. So womyns taste starts to dull before men.

As a child, you taste more intensely, and this is the reason things might taste horrible. When you get older, your tongue isn't as sensitive.

Srsly tho-- don't get "fresh" sushi; make sure they use frozen fish.

Standards require to-be-served-raw fish to be frozen for an extended period at well below zero, in order to kill possible parasites.

If you're really paranoid, but actually like sushi/sashimi, be sure to avoid salmon particularly.

During which time some of them rode the local horses scouting for good pigs, which they both roasted whole and cut into chunks for spit cooking.


Marines initially responsible for narrow waist of the island, and the sparsely populated north. Army got into the s**t much faster, L+2 or L+3*, as they were on southern wing of landings and turned south earlier.


* for reasons perhaps not documented, "D day" - used for all Allied amphibious operations - was not used for Operation Iceberg ..... instead, it was "Love Day" - and also Easter, and also April Fool's Day

525 The American eel is the only catadromous fish I know of, which is why it's so hard to word catadromous into every day conversation.

Baby eels are called glass eels or elvers. They're a delicacy in Europe, particularly Portugal. Elver poaching is a major criminal enterprise in Maine.

Shall we keep talking about eels?

I didn't know this, but like much of your digestive tract, tastebuds constantly regenerate. As you age, that regeneration process slows.

My father will soon be 92, and he's been putting so much pepper on his food for the past few years, it's ridiculous. His taste is getting very dull and he needs to get some sort of kick.

A few weeks, I stopped with him at a local joint, and he wanted to put some Texas Pete on something. This bottle was one was a large opening that had the small hole in the cap, as opposed to some bottles, which have the small hole in the bottle itself.

He didn't realize it, and took the whole top off and just saturated whatever it was with Texas Pete.

He ate it without even flinching.

Anadromous fish live in salt water but spawn in fresh. Salmon are the most common exemplar, but there are also striped bass, various species of shad, and herring.

Catadromous fish live in fresh water but spawn in salt. In the case of the American eel they all go to the Sargasso Sea to get their rocks off and then return to their streams.

.....

That's an interesting correlation I hadn't considered.

One thing that has grown on me ever and ever more strongly over the years is the reality of the personhood of the Lord.

It's not a thing that is easily grasped, that the Lord is an individual that considers our requests, that we are like him in a personhood sense, that He feels things as we feel things, that he is offended as we are offended and he loves as we love.

I'm struck in reading through OT and even NT how many times the Lord says "Have I not...."

He is appealing the truth of his provision to us historically again and again, Demonstrating that he is there with us. How much frustration is in Jesus' words when he says, and I paraphrase, "if I had shown this to the heathens, they would follow me forever and believe, but you that should know deny me".

In so many ways, the Lord acquiesces to our wishes because of his sincere desire to have fellowship with us. I sometimes think the Lord is lonely and forgiveness of our constant transgression against our kinship is the only way he can feasibly justify our continued existence, because we were born slaves to sin and indifference to him and it stings him relentlessly in a way we can't begin to understand.

He saw the plane hit the first tower and against the advice of someone at the company he told everyone to get everyone to get out of the second tower and saved 2700 people. He died trying to save more people, Trump awarded him a posthumous award today and his elderly widow was there to accept it. This is a little video about him. If you have an interest check out the award ceremony today-probably on YouTube or at Conservative TreeHouse:

It's something how national traits show up in things like cars. Italians make stunningly beautiful cars that can be technical nightmares to keep running. Germans (at least in the old days) made technical masterpieces that looked pretty dull most of the time. The English did opulent luxury better than anyone; America in its glory days did mass production better than anyone, plus good cheap performance power.

The French always gave out a vibe that said "we're just not into cars all that much."

559 On the subject of Insom's reaction to marriage. I don't see how disparity between Marriage, the Holy Institution and marriage with the range of outcomes in actual life is much different from the gulf that exists between a Constitutional Republic fashioned as a Union of Sovereign States and the Washington Swamp and Graft Club that appears ever real before us.

Does that mean we give up saying that a Constitutional Republic is the idea, simply because the best we can do is The Swamp?

It's like we refuse to recognize the damage of sinful flesh in actuality as compared to the plan (abstract like the Law).

I don't pass judgments on other people's situations, because I don't have the knowledge to judge (and really don't want to anyway, nor do I need to.)

Besides, I wasn't really discussing what marriage invariably is, but what are discernible Christian teachings on marriage.

Jesus came to make all things new. In 2000 years we've gotten closer to the model, but never without backward steps.

If you place no importance on scripture, then what scripture says would seem strange and I wouldn't expect anything but. But Christian theology, if we are on the subject of Christian theology hangs on scripture and Jesus teachings and they are central as long as we are discussing the topic of Christianity.

My sincere apologies if I maligned....uh, Mr. Manufacturer.

I think Fen's comment illustrates the difference between women and men in the sense that (as a female) I didn't see it as scoldy at all, I saw her concern. Maybe knowing she's a minister gives me that perspective?

But all the guys seem to have felt it was scoldy.

I think that happens a lot with men and women. We feel like we're expressing concern, and you feel bitched at.

Text strips context/inflection/warmth. I would almost guarantee that Fen said that in her head in the warmest, most comforting tone possible. However, a cold read, it does look a bit scoldy.

"Expressing concern" in a public forum like this comes across as shaming. And her subsequent posts didn't do her image any good, either. I was beginning to wonder if she was being socked by a troll, because it was all so out of character for her. Maybe that is the case.

In so many things related to faith, it's going to sound cliche, but I have found that the answer to many questions I have struggled with is Who the Lord is.

And that means that if the answer is in Who the Lord is, then it cements the Christian doctrine, from the Weslyans and Kierkegaard that it is the personal relationship. Knowing Who the Lord is, knowing His character, we can learn how tensions can be resolved.

It's academic that belief in the Lord solves the Problem of Other Minds. It's too easy to see the opaque thoughts of other people as some sort of automatic, unthinking response. However, the mutuality principle of God tells us that we are not to think of ourselves as so much unlike others.

And what this allows us to do is have a dialog with other minds and simply not have some automatic feedback loop into a supposition that what makes us obviously different (race, culture, etc) is 100% the reason why the other people generate (because they don't think ) these strange patterns that conflict with our thoughts.

And I think we have learned by learning from other people. Which is the pattern that I call "faith".

Modern Science can't find Free will, and the naturalists find it more and more convenient to deny that such thing exists. Thus, our brain patterns are all generated in a matrix of interacting forces. Just precisely as we are if we dismiss ideas that conflict with ours on face value.

Also the Law (abstract impersonal principles) vs. Grace (personal,sensitive,reactive,relational) illustrates the problem that "rational" theists have had with "miracles". I can't remember but it was somebody like Descartes--and it was definitely Spinoza's case--that miracles were a sort of insult to God, because they implied that God didn't make the world better than needing to be interfered with.

However, the pattern of the Incarnation, is specifically a immersive interference into Creation. Thus, the God, who's thoughts we cannot chart is saying that the Incarnation is superior to clockwork function.

And I really don't want to tangent off of this, because I have a major arc after this.

And you can't see inside my thoughts so you don't know the veracity of this when I tell you, it is my experience that each encounter with a pattern reinforces another pattern. The God of the Bible is fascinating and sort of fractal.

Patterns repeat and his Wisdom, as I experience it, becomes compelling--however my human frailty struggles with it.

Towards the end of the East German experiment they tried to act like a civilized country and rebuild a Jewish community, so they found an American rabbi named Isaac Neumann and hired him to come over and reopen a temple.

Part of DDR mythology was that communists were opposed to Nazis so all of the anti-Semitic Nazi stuff was the legacy of West Germany and East Germany was pure and free of guilt.

Rabbi Neumann said hey that's kind of bullshit and left/got kicked out before his first year was up and the commies said he was a CIA plant all along.

The piercing pain a 46-year-old Florida man was complaining of had gone on for a week.

By the time he made it to an operating room, doctors said he was in septic shock.

According to WLFA, the CT scan performed next provided some clues about the man's pelvic and midsection discomfort. A full screwdriver was evident in the man's abdominal region and appeared to have pierced his large intestine.

Non-surgical options were considered to retrieve the object, but there were complications. The tool had become embedded in a buttock muscle.

The report said "surgery would be required to remove the full screwdriver from his rectum. Surgeons drained right buttock abscess and performed a colostomy."

Surgery was successful, and the man was said to be doing well when examined two weeks later.

The report said the man had previously been treated for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The surgery details, posted in medical publications, stressed that surgeons should "maintain high suspicion" when encountering psychiatric patients with lower stomach or rectal pain.

Yeah its frustrating. I tried everything to save him. He went from making 350K a year to homeless in the woods talking to trees. I watched him slowly go insane. The courts and the lying bitch of an ex wife destroyed him. That bitch used the courts and the cops to bat him around like a cat bats around a mouse. I managed to get him a little stable for a bit. He didn't even have a car, so I gave him my spare. I thought he doing a little better, he finally had an apartment after a few years. I used to tell him just hang on for a few years, the kids will be adults. Nothing mattered, the damage was done.

Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
'Epstein didn't kill himself."

In Sonnenfeldt's words: "it must be our policy to strive for an evolution that makes the relationship between the Eastern Europeans and the Soviet Union an organic one."

Sonnenfeldt was an insider's insider (he was chief aide to Henry Kissinger), so after the Wall fell, there was a desperate effort by the foreign policy elites to rewrite history and claim that he hadn't actually meant that.

He had.

When Teddy had trouble with psycho Muslims launching suicide attacks, hopped up on drugs to the extent that the standard pistols of the day wouldn't stop them, did he spend time worrying about "root causes" and trying to "understand their point of view"?

No!

He got in touch with Saint John Moses Browning and said, "Hey, homie, can you make me something that will chill these crazy mofos?" And Saint John Moses Browning did say "I got you, fam.", went off to his workshop, and did come back with the .45 ACP round.

A few years ago, I stayed in a resort in Croatia near Italy, and noted that in the last hundred years that part of Croatia had been in: 1) the Austro-Hungarian Empire, 2) Italy, 3) Communist Yugoslavia, and 4) Independent Croatia. This doesn't count interim governments that lasted a short while.

There is a tendency to view the current political order as stable, immutable, and unchanging. This has largely been true in the United States, but is definitely not true for continental Europe.

753 True. The thing I wonder about is this: how many
people are truly 'stable'? How many have you met who actually seem to
always have both oars in the water, react to everything rationally? How
many people are actually 'sane'? How would we know?

Well, since I spent the vast majority of my life around musicians, I would say not many. lol
Seriously though, as for myself I'm pretty stable, well I think I am. lol. I don't get mood swings, I'm pretty much the same screwball day in and day out. I think the key for me was to not take myself too seriously, and I was never really a follower. I carved my own path, kept my focus, but I also didn't over estimate my chances at anything, so I kept things realistic. I sure as hell didn't live as others expected me to, so I never gave a rat's ass about disappointing anybody. I always figured if I couldn't make myself happy I sure as shit wouldn't be able to make others happy. I think having a heavy side dish of no fucks to give helps a lot. I remember years ago a family member telling me how great one of my cousins was doing and I should have went to school and have been more like him, because he has this and that. I said yeah well, cousin so and so don't know what it's like to command a room full of people, rip their faces off, and bang chicks 2 at a time, sooo.... No fucks to give, works for me.

754 There is a tendency to view the current political order as stable, immutable, and unchanging. This has largely been true in the United States, but is definitely not true for continental Europe.

I like to show my students a video of the history of European borders over the last 1,000 years.

We're used to all of the states having stable borders. Pennsylvania hasn't invaded New Jersey (yet). Everything stays the same shape.

You look at Europe and Poland grows and disappears and grows again. Lithuania is a power. Byzantium waxes and wanes. It's a different world.

You know this "they all look alike" = racist thing is not true, but simply normal. What's going on is simply this. There are relatively gross differences in appearance between the major racial groups, say Caucasians vs. Asians.

To the "naive eye" those gross differences overwhelm the subtle differences that we automatically use to differentiate individuals. Once you get used to those gross differences, you begin to see the subtle differences.

There's a chance the country *might* be hearing of the unbelievable, historic abuses involved via court cases, but who knows. This is a chance to educate [ha, I crack myself up].


Oh - and delay in IG report, some horribly cynical people are speculating, may be in part to get this re-authorization done first [though Collyer's report was 1OO megatons and is years old - don't know why IG report would complicate Congress's kabuki of "oversight theater"].

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

There's a logical explanation for that too. Different racial groups tend to use slightly different cues to tell individuals apart. With Caucasians, hair color plays a big role. That would be useless for other racial groups.

So, it means the software was written to use one such set, and that set doesn't work as well with other groups.

I remember a guy who fought in the Pacific during WWII talking about how red hair freaked out some of the locals, which they'd never seen before.

Why did you wait until now to tell me?!?!?!

Posted by: Blonde Morticia at November 08, 2019 02:52 AM (13CQC)

825 Well, it's late enough. I will relate my wonderful colonoscopy experience on Thursday.

First off, I am so sick and tired of being treated like a second class moron (lower case 'm') just because I live alone. 'Who is signing you out today?' 'No one. I signed myself in and I'll sign myself out.' 'But . . but . . . who is taking you home?' 'Access-A-Ride' (a car ride program in NYC for elderly patients like myself to get to doctors' appointments and hospital procedures). 'But who will watch you when you get home to make sure you're okay?' 'Me.' 'But . . . but . . .'

Now for the fun stuff. I take Coumadin due to my history of blood clots (my blood is a blood clot factory; genetics, what can you do?), including multiple clots in my right leg along with clots in my lungs and heart (the heart one really gave me pause). I also have an ICD (pacemaker with defib paddles built in) so I always have to have any procedure in the hospital. So they do the thing but when I wake up I'm told I have two polyps that they did not remove because Coumadin, which they certainly knew about beforehand. They would not remove them because of the potential for serious bleeding. So now I'm going to have to have another colonoscopy to remove the polyps sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the next time with more hospital stay. I'm told I will be in the hospital two or three days prior to get the Coumadin out of my system and give me a heparin IV instead; Heparin is fast acting and fast leaving blood thinner only given in a hospital setting. So after, it'll be a day or two pumping me back up with Coumadin before I'm allowed to leave.

So I get to do the whole colonoscopy prep once again just to get rid of those damn polyps. But they couldn't do the hospital thing the first time, oh no. Pissed doesn't begin to cover how my day made me feel.

The Doc doing the colonoscopy told me, when I had my consultation, 'I'll keep you on the Coumadin because of your history of clots. I can fix any bleeding but not clots.' I guess not after all.

moisture up.

Saw press conformation of crime moving into Baltimore County. But you already told us that, and how the police chief reacted.

I imagine a Next Door petition drive for actual crime reduction would be unexpected. But fun.

Salty,
There's no call really for my searching skills in this role, but knowing my way around IPCs helped me solve an assignment I was given to locate some suitable illustrations for this application.

After using Derwent Innovation, Google Patents is a real come-down.

Too late..


NextDoor already done blowed up with that.

On the plus side, posters there are really beginning to question why the current progressive mind set is all about protecting the criminal, and nothing about protecting the law abiding citizen.

943 So I gotta share this.

Suspect in stolen car is approached by police, and requested to step out of vehicle. Upon stepping out, he lunges at Officer, all while while producing his own illegal firearm.

During struggle, Police fatally shoot suspect.

So a life celebration, with balloon release is scheduled for the scene of the altercation.

Biggest complaint on NextDoor is that balloons are horribly bad for the environment, and that they should choose another method of celebration.

My F'n head hurts.

creeper, I saw your post yesterday about margarine. I remember, back in the 60's, bringing a case of margarine to my aunt who lived in Wisconsin whenever we would visit. We lived in Illinois, and we would joke about smuggling it in.

My parents are down there right now in the RV park on base, along with a bunch of other folks in their vintage motorhomes.

They sure picked a good weekend, tomorrow is forecast to be sunny and a bit warmer. They should make plans though that they will have a hard time getting anywhere on or off base due to the crowds.

957 Though the good lord above only knows why anyone in Wisconsin would want margarine smuggled in with all this perfectly good butter everywhere ... but I remember the parents doing this for the relatives up around Green Bay.



As research in my adult years has shown, the prohibition of margarine was actually in the state Constitution ( ! ), and was for margarine that was colored yellow to look like butter (deceptive practice !).
Old time Badger Staters tell me you could actually buy margarine, in its dead-white condition, and helpful grocers would provide a little packet of yellow coloring you could add, aftermarket.

What a funny old world, innit ?

959 True. The thing I wonder about is this: how many people are truly 'stable'? How many have you met who actually seem to always have both oars in the water, react to everything rationally? How many people are actually 'sane'? How would we know?
