47 Are aircraft carriers six billion dollar trailer parks?

"40 ppl are going to mast; the CMC (command master chief) just took over b/c the previous CMC was relieved due to fraternization with females onboard. One of the master chiefs onboard (was sleeping with a new sailor (she is in black dress). The master chief and his wife obviously went to the party and the black dress female didn't know boat boo rules so she confronted him in front of his wife (woman in maroon dress). That is how the fight started. He was also sleeping with another sailor and that female got mad so she joined in on the fight. Apparently, the fight got bigger and went outside. After all was said and done, they were also fighting on the ship. Female chiefs were fighting in the berthing and there was also beef in the wardroom."

Nope, not trailer parks; followed that link til I found the video and that's pure ghetto culture. And is that what passes for "formal dress" now? I'd expect a hooker's convention in Tijuana to be better dressed than that - this bunch looked like they were strait outta Baltimore.

You know Hollow Man was a horrible movie, but it did have... two things going that made it memorable.

Rhona Mitra naked.

The other was a scene after Bacon starts going crazy and evil, there is a dog who continuiously barks in the same containment area he is in. You watch on the camera as he enters where the dog is kept, picks up the dog like a rag doll and slams it's head against a wall.

For some reason that is one of the most disturbing scenes I have ever seen in a movie.

I knocked on the door just as the cat finally got close enough to me. I reached down to try and pet the cat. The door opened, so I stood back up so I could talk to the guy inside. The cat ran in the house. While I talked to the guy, a woman inside must have caught the cat and she came to the door and just chucked it. There was a hole in the ramp, and the cat feel through it. (I assume the woman didn't intend for the cat to fall in the hole). The cat hit a cross beam on the way to the ground and hurt it's foot.

When I was done talking to the guy and the door was closed, I tried to lure the cat out so I could pet it, but it limped into a corner and hid from me.

I took myself way too seriously, was seemingly bullied by everyone (or felt that way), was frankly scared of my father, and was afraid of my own shadow.

I spent a fair amount of a decade in various SF clubs, the Mabuhay, the Keystones/Stone, the Old Waldorf, Club Viz, a couple SoMA dyke bars, a couple places down in the Mission whose names escape me now, the Berkeley Square, etc.

Thirty years and change later my wife finally booted me off for a hearing test and even I was surprised at just how bad my left ear is.

Admittedly this doesn't confirm same, but I just read elsewhere on the web that the officers who work that prison, Metropolitan Correctional Center, are pretty much there for the bennies and perks, but otherwise hate their jobs and do the absolute minimum to stay employed. Overall, their morale is shockingly low.

Also a claim that a nearby cellie could hear Epstein tearing up his sheets earlier in the evening at question. Doesn't prove anything one way or the other, but thought it was worth sharing.

I was never popular, or even noticed...except for a small tight-knit group of friends. We adopted the hard rock and metal culture. My best friend and I pooled our money together to buy the first Iron Maiden album. We actually had to special order it at the Pamida (I think it was Gibson's at the time). It arrived in a couple of weeks.

Iron Maiden. First kids in town who knew who the fuck they were.

Best part, he and I are still best friends. 43 years. He's more my brother than a couple of my actual brothers.

Then we drove up to the north end of Phoenix, and toured the yard at Desert Valley Auto Parts, the collector car wrecking yard that the was featured in a TV series a few years ago.

Then drove back to Apache Junction, just early enough to avoid the worst traffic on the 101 Loop, and took in a car show at a shopping center parking lot. Saw some fine hot rods and restored cars there.

Then went out for ribs at a local pub that has a rib special on Fridays. All in all, a great day.

When I was in high school, an album/cassette cost around $4, about the same price as a concert ticket. I did go to quite a few concerts. Also, back then, there were a lot of outdoor 'all day into the night' concerts, with 7 or so groups, for the same $4-5 price. Went to a lot of those, too. The last one of those outdoor concerts I attended, way after high school, was in 1981 (Foreigner was the headliner but the Kinks were second bananas; also included in the lineup were Huey Lewis and the News, Joan Jett and {GASP} Madonna).

354 Admittedly this doesn't confirm same, but I just read elsewhere on the web that the officers who work that prison, Metropolitan Correctional Center, are pretty much there for the bennies and perks, but otherwise hate their jobs and do the absolute minimum to stay employed. Overall, their morale is shockingly low.

Also a claim that a nearby cellie could hear Epstein tearing up his sheets earlier in the evening at question. Doesn't prove anything one way or the other, but thought it was worth sharing.

Knowingly allowing the most valuable prisoner in the entire system to be placed in such an environment and then doing nothing when he went on suicide watch, is tantamount to killing him regardless of whose hands Epstein died at.

My answer to whatever follows: 'no'.

When a state bases its ideology on insanity, it has to promote insane people to positions of sensitivity. Eventually they are going to go nuts and push the wrong button and the wrong time.

They might be ordered to NOT push that button until given explicit orders... but then they hear the Voice Of Allah and push it anyway.

But the regime is not done killing and vandalizing the world. Today their president openly threatened "mass casualty" attacks on Americans. This is more commonplace than normal people would believe possible for them, but still.

As before, most of their victims will be people in the region, not Americans. Of course we don't know whether they perceive a "red line" as harming Americans, as most seem to see it; Trump has actually refrained from limiting his "red line" to American lives, but this latest incident unfortunately may reinforce the perception.

It's all about the CAFE, the CAFE, the CAFE.

The turbo V6s do great on fuel economy when lightly loaded, which is how most trucks operate 80% of the time. Under heavier loads the normally aspirated V8s do better in terms of fuel economy though not necessarily in terms of pulling power.

445 Haven't seen the whole list, but about a third of the passengers were Iranian/Canadian dual citizens, I think. Not sure how many Ukrainians aboard.

Horrible.

But the regime is not done killing and vandalizing the world. Today their president openly threatened "mass casualty" attacks on Americans. This is more commonplace than normal people would believe possible for them, but still.

As before, most of their victims will be people in the region, not Americans. Of course we don't know whether they perceive a "red line" as harming Americans, as most seem to see it; Trump has actually refrained from limiting his "red line" to American lives, but this latest incident unfortunately may reinforce the perception.
Posted by: rhomboid at January 10, 2020 11:37 PM (El6T/)

I am going to assume, unless it is proven otherwise, that most of those dual Iranian/Canadian citizens are friends of the regime, otherwise it's unlikely that they would be allowed to freely travel to and from Iran. Which means they are basically using Canada as a hotel. Too bad, so sad.

449 I'm wide open to additional info, but I'm not aware Trump has done anything to change the GOP. I whine about this, at the congressional level, regularly here. He endorses every GOP incumbent a nanosecond after they announce, regardless of their value to the country or his announced/presumed agenda.

GOPe does not oppose all of his policies, but on immigration/rule of law, it comes close to outright opposition (via the much easier and safer passive-aggressive approach of doing nothing, and counting on their brain-dead GOP voters - and this WH - to do and say nothing to "politicize" their behavior on that central issue).

456 The turbo V6s do great on fuel economy when lightly loaded, which is how most trucks operate 80% of the time. Under heavier loads the normally aspirated V8s do better in terms of fuel economy though not necessarily in terms of pulling power. And of course at altitude normally-aspirated engines lose far more power than do turbo motors.

Found it a bit interesting that one of Trump's few comments on the (typically disingenuous) IG report (the last one) was to twatter about FBI Dir. Wray's comments: "did he read the same report?".

Maybe some day we'll find out, but I am utterly baffled at how such an obvious disastrous pick like Wray wasn't fixed long ago. Even on paper he wasn't remotely the person for the job anyway (silk stocking Beltway lawyer and part of the DOJ mafia) - about the LAST type of person you'd want for the circumstances.

Note that the greatest (not even on the same scale) constitutional/institutional scandal in our history has resulted in precisely bupkis from Congress, apart from whatever Devin Nunes has managed to do (pretty much alone). To even include politicking and rhetoric. The "GOP" Senate has been nearly a pristine disaster.

517 They were running a test and Mom volunteered.
They checked her out and declined. The last four years of her life the machine was the only thing that kept her heart beating. It would not beat without it.

Yeah, I need my pacemaker part to keep my heart in rhythm. But because of the scarring on my heart from a silent heart attack, the electrical impulses which beat the heart and push the blood can get sidetracked and my heart turns into Jell-O. My heart functions without the device at 50% of normal, meaning fibrillation can happen at any moment. The 10 shocks I've had since 2010 have literally kept me alive. My gallows humor is that I'm Dead Man Walking 10 Times Over.

Not sure what you mean by "They checked her out and declined." They only gave her the pacemaker and not the ICD?

A newly introduced Indiana bill would allow people with terminal illnesses to request medication that would end their own lives.

Democratic Rep. Matt Pierce submitted the bill Tuesday.

The bill describes terminal illness as an "incurable and irreversible illness that will, within reasonable medical judgment, result in death within six months."

Patients must be at least 18 years old and Indiana residents to request medical aid in dying. The request must be written and cannot be accepted unless the patient is of "sound mind."

Sounds like the next J. Edgar Hoover.

>>A senior DOJ official confirmed "that the decision by the Department of Justice to decline prosecution was made before William Barr was Attorney General."

It's not as if he was prosecuted and acquitted; a decision to decline can always be reversed. wtf, Barr? Get off the bagpipes, stop frowning in puzzlement and waiting to see what happens in "late spring or early summer" (more dark, hollow laughter) and give us a flaming skull.

529 The company I work for has three 2015 Ford Transit 350's in the fleet. Medium height-top, single rear wheel axle. 3.5 Twin Turbo Eco-Boost engines.

IIRC, that's appx 375 hp, and 420ish lbs of torque, with max torque at about 2,500 rpm against a 5,500 rpm redline.

I'd call that low-ish end torque.

I'll also testify, that the 14 passenger unit, with all seats filled with adult men, pulling a 12 ft. cargo trailer filled to within 20 in. of the roof with "people going on a cruise" luggage, can merge with any stream of traffic short of the exits at the pits of any NASCAR race.

Houston Ship Channel Bridge? It doesn't downshift, it just pulls harder than a Navy Dentist on a Moron's Molar.

And it's averaged 15.6 MPG in it's heavily burdened life, so far.

Two of the vans are in the low 115,xxx mile range. The trailer pulling van has 90,xxx on it, as of when I parked it two hours ago.

Other than oil changes, filters and brakes, only ONE of the Transits has needed a single, lone, ignition coil-over-plug unit.

Oh, and windshield wipers. And a few windshields.

But so far, these Transits are some of the most reliable fleet vehicles I've ever seen.

I don't know about or have any experience with the smaller Eco-Boost engines.

But that 3.5 Ford Eco-Boost is a MONSTER, in a miserly wrapper.

You would have to go full Turbo Diesel for another engine to be a "step-up".

Local competitor has a fleet of a dozen Mercedes Sprinters. Blue-Tec Diesels.

They're shop queens. I know the mechanic who tends to them, and it's "put his kids through college" money.

Go with the Transit conversion unit. Plan to pay for pure synthetic oil changes, including the transmission. Do change the coolant, per schedule.

Change ALL the fluids, per schedule.

NEVER have the brake rotors "turned". Just replace 'em from O'Reiley's. Cheaper, and safer.

If your tires are "in doubt", buy new ones, NOW.

Do all this, and your Transit won't be a "lets me down" vehicle.

Oh, and one of the most comfortable driver's seats, ever.

NHL app. For...I think about $25/month (I paid 150 for the whole year) and you can stream every single NHL game, except those you're in the home broadcast area for). It works with Chromecast too, so you can cast the games to your TV. As a Flames fan in Baltimore (btw, Avs suck) it's a godsend. I watch almost every Flames game, without it I'd get maybe 2 (when they play the Craps).

594 Men of the AoSHQ:

Help me adjust the parameters of a crazy new role-playing board game.

Each player's character in the game has three attributes:

Brain
Wallet
Dick

At the start of the game, each player gets a certain amount of credit-units which they can apportion however they want amongst the three attributes.

You baseline starting level is

IQ of 60
$0 in wallet
4-inch penis

You are given 8 credit-units. Each credit-unit can "buy" the following additional bonus values for your character:

1 credit-unit =

10 IQ points - or -
$500,000 - or -
1 inch of penis length

Examples:

You decide to use ALL your credit units to buy IQ points. So your character in the game would have an IQ of 140, but be totally broke and have a 4-inch dick. Or....

You decide to convert all your credit units to money. You start the game with $4 million, but are very stupid and have a tiny dick. Or...

You go all-in for penis length, and buy yourself 8 inches, giving your character a 12-inch monster penis, but you are extremely retarded and totally broke.

Or... you can divvy it up however you want, e.g.

4 units for an IQ of 100
2 units fo $1 million
2 units for a 6-inch dick

...this being the "average compromise" choice.

Want to be smarter? Then maybe

6 units for an IQ of 120
1 unit for $500,000
1 unit for a 5-inch dick.

Etc. etc.

Question: How would you spend your units to build your character?

Obviously you'd need to know the rules of the game to decide, but just assume that the game is as close to real-life as possible.

If everyone tends to make the same choice-direction because one category is perceived as having the most "value" per unit, then I will try adjust things so the values are more equally balanced.

Ready, set -- build your characters!

601 This I know demographics. Every month in ameriKKKa 200,000 minority kids turn voting age and nearly all hate conservatives. 6 million more will have turned 18 by november 2020. Look what happened to republicans in arizona in 2018 election. As for illegals voting when drumpf's commission looking for the 3 million illegals drumpf said voted against him in california. The commission shut itself down so the trumpkins on the commission didn't have to report they couldn't find any. In texas rethugs paid an illegal to vote ;but he got cold feet and took the money and ran instead of voting!

602 Another way to phrase the question, to take it out of the theoretical and make it more real:

Right now --- whatever age you are, whatever your life situation is -- a genie appears to you and says "I will grant you 8 wishes. Each wish can be either for 10 additional IQ points, or for $500,000, or for 1 extra inch on your penis. What are your 8 wishes?" Not a game. In real life.

605 So I just watched Will Smith on Fallon saying Tyler Perry built his
studio on a "former Confederate" army base. It took about three
seconds to find out that he was talking about Fort Mcpherson near
Atlanta. Fort Mcpherson was a US Army base established in 1867 and
named after one of the most famous USA Generals of the Civil War.

It
is odd that Smith picks out this fort as many major US Army forts in
the south are named after Confederates. Why call a fort that has been
US Army since 1867 and named after a US civil war hero a "confederate
fort". I wonder when the Fallon audience believe it stopped being
Confederate, when Perry bought it?

I did
some more online research (the worst kind) and there is some info
(not one Wiki) that
says the area was used as a training ground by the CSA at some point
during the war. But what part of Georgia, the Carolinas, and VA were
not used by the CSA during the war?
I just find
it odd to call a former US Army base of almost 150 years a Confederate
base. Particularly a base located in the deep south that was named for a
USA hero instead of a CSA general.

I think people should just learn more history, but that is not going to happen.

632 of course it could have been an accident. But these guys are not dumb, they know it could have been an accident too It might sound paranoid but it is not. These people have historically blown civilian airlines out of the sky. They knew they could not get away with taking out American troops or even Americans at this point. It is possible someone in their command wanted to go alla akbar on some Westerners.
I am not saying that is what happened but it could have been. Just last night you had the AFP saying Iran denied shooting down the plane and then an hour later the AP saying Iran admitted to shooting down the plane.

Posted by: SuberE at January 11, 2020 04:41 AM (EPXLU)

635 634 I am just not sure about that, though I have not seen the theories. I would place it as 70 percent they did it by accident and 30 percent they did it on purpose even if the high commander did not give the ok.

What bothers me about the accident is it doesn't make any sense. We did not fire on Iran, they fired on us and that was hours before this plane wen't down. We did not send planes into Iran, this was a plan from their own airport in their own capital. They can't cry that we send a bunch of incoming in and they made a mistake. Sure the Left doesn't care and 45 percent of the country is ready to believe them, but it makes no sense. If the Brits fired a SAM at an airline out of Heathrow would people just say "well, that makes sense, it is Trump's fault?" And what point does none of this make sense.

638 final point about the Tyler Perry, Will Smith, CSA thing. I checked at the US Army history site and it is true that CSA soldiers used the area for training at some point during the war. If Perry takes his ownership of the former US Army base as a point of pride, then that is fine with me. But they might want to mention 150 years of the base as a US Army fort and all that entails. I wonder if they did anything to preserve that history.

It could be jumpy soldiers expecting us to retaliate and then firing in a panic.
Remember, they couldn't beat the Iraqis and we saw how the Iraqis reacted to our air strikes.
I wouldn't be surprised if their AA did as much damage as our air strikes seeing as how they sprayed it everywhere.
My guess is the guys that fired the missile will wind up liquidated.

me too. But I am not seeing the conspiracy. I thought you were thinking of some doozies.

648 I think a lot of people in high places have shown the Iranians let people know when the rockets were firing and that they were pulling their shots. But the rocket attacks were long before the Ukrainian plane shoot down.
Actually I am over it. The explanation is their is plane site. We did not fire on them we did not send it planes. Someone in their capital mistakes a civilian liner leaving their own airport for an air raid? What else needs to be said. There is a reason most Dems blame Trump for the deaths. They blame it on a possible American air raid too. Not trying to be a jerk but it is the truths. At some point you either by this as The Fog of War or read about war and not buy that. Even that scrub Tom Nichols is not buying it.

Posted by: Quint at January 11, 2020 05:18 AM (n13/j)

649 so many typos but still accurate. Look I understand why people assume this was an accident. But many on the Left extrapolate from that, that this was an understandable accident. And from there they blame Trump for starting the whole thing. It is funny that they pick a certain time that fits their narrative as as "starting it"

I still say the Iranians could have done it on purpose and anyone who knows my posts knows I don't believe in conspiracy theories writ large. But I do know how evil the Iranian state has been. They can't beat us conventionally. Anyone who expected them to rain down fire on our bases is pretty naive. They would be smoking about now, and not Hookah.
