The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Here’s another stupid thing: Democrats talking about free college tuition or debt forgiveness. I’m not here to debate the idea. What I can tell you is that people all over this country worked their way through school, sent their kids to school, paid off student loans. They don’t want to hear this shit. And you saw Warren confronted by an angry voter over this. It’s just not a winning message.James Carville


Quote II

“The point is, everybody takes free speech for granted,” Lozman said in an interview. "I don’t think they realize the protections of free speech are being diminished. It was important for me to take a stand for free speech. That’s why I did it.” Fane Lozman


Quote III

“Yes, as usual, he called me a sleaze and scum and a dirty cop and said he likely would no longer be president if he hadn’t fired me. Although I still can’t follow the logic of that last bit, it doesn’t matter,” James Comey

Quote IV

“So what’s the resolution to that? Is gerrymandering something that would help improve the situation? Is – how does that sort of divide promote consensus in the Senate or even in the House?” NBC Anchor Katy Tur


Quote V

"No, you haven't. You're a lying dog-faced pony soldier." Joe Biden


Looks like the paste eater is losing it right before our very eyes.

Barbwire, pineapple, PETA Assembly required.

It would appear that there are very few things that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) won’t complain about.

So when #NationalPizzaDay began trending on Twitter, it was merely a matter of time until the organization posted something on the topic. Lo and behold, an image of a crying pig being sliced up for pepperoni was born.


Life is just too f*cking short for all of this pretentious Bull Shit.

Talk about a hate crime. And crickets. Car intentionally rams GOP tent.

Authorities in Florida said on Saturday that a man deliberately rammed a vehicle into a tent of Republican volunteers who were registering people to vote.

“Jacksonville police say a driver intentionally crashed a van through a tent where Duval County GOP volunteers were registering voters Saturday afternoon,” The Florida Times-Union reported. “Several Duval County GOP volunteers were working at the registration tent when a white man in his early 20s driving an older – possibly 1980s – brown van pulled up toward the tent.”

Not only is she ignorant. She's very lazy as well.
Hailed once as "the future" of the Democratic Party by DNC Chairman Tom Perez, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) took to Instagram on Saturday to analyze the state of the country's economy.

The Boston University graduate, said she was recently reading how, in 1930, "famed economist Milton Keynes predicted that by 2030, GDP and technology would have advanced so much, that it would allow everyday people to work as little as FIFTEEN HOURS a week and provide for their families."

Are you an 'ette? Are you in a hetrosexual relationship? There is a group out there who wants to ban your relationship.

MONTREAL -- The Quebec government says it will re-evaluate the $120,000 annual public funding it gives to the province's biggest women's federation after its president suggested that heterosexual relationships should be banned.

Gabrielle Bouchard, president of the Federation des femmes du Quebec, made the controversial comment Tuesday on Twitter, before issuing an apology on Facebook and during televised media interviews later in the day.

Bouchard says her original tweet was in reaction to news that a man out on parole after being convicted of killing his female partner had been arrested in the slaying last week of a 22-year-old woman in Quebec City.

Clearly life is too damn good here in the U.S.A and the Trump Derangement Syndrome is alive and well. POLL: 62% of NH Dems Prefer Dying in Meteor Shower than Trump Reelection

shocking new poll taken from UMass showed 62% of Democrats would prefer a world ending meteor shower to President Trump getting reelected in 2020.

Conservatives will certainly point to this poll and argue it’s evidence that “Trump Derangement Syndrome” has reached new levels of absurdity.

RawStory reports a new poll out of New Hampshire shows just how much Democrats in the state do not want President Donald Trump to win reelection in 2020.

Per NBC News’ Sahil Kapur, a new poll from UMass Lowell asked New Hampshire Democrats if they would rather see President Donald Trump get reelected in 2020 or a meteor storm that wiped out all life on Earth.

Good f*cking grief.

Are you a fisherman fisher person? If you are in the market for a new reel. This might be the reel for you.

That’s quite a catch.

Popular Australian YouTube star Briggsy, known for his fishing footage and rod reviews, released a unique new video that is winning praise with his fans: a battle between his new fishing reel and his girlfriend.

On Sunday, Briggsy dropped a nearly 8-minute video of him testing his new “powerful” 2020 Saltiga reel on his girlfriend by tying a fishing line around her backpack and making her run about 330 feet — at full speed — to see if his gear was powerful enough to stop her.

At least with this whistle blower we have a name unlike Eric Ciaramella.

A former US drone operator-turned-whistleblower who claimed his air force bosses told him 'it's just a dog' when he killed a child in Afghanistan has described the American military as 'worse than the Nazis'.

Brandon Bryant, from Missoula, Montana, spent six years in the US Air Force operating Predator drones from inside a dark container 7,000 miles from the conflict.

The 34-year-old fired missiles remotely from a base in Las Vegas, Nevada. He also spent time at drone control centers in New Mexico and Iraq.

What are some of the joys of living in the U.S.A? One is if you do not care to participate in elections, you are free to sit them out. Leave it to California to mess with someone's privacy.

The proposal, introduced in the state Assembly on Tuesday, would be unprecedented and probably challenged in court should it ultimately become law. It would place the burden for determining the civil penalty and the ultimate punishment on the secretary of state, California’s chief elections officer.


“Democracy is not a spectator sport — it requires the active participation of all its citizens,” the bill’s author, Assemblyman Marc Levine, D-San Rafael, said in a written statement. “California is a national leader on expanding voting rights to its citizens. Those rights come with a responsibility by registered voters to cast their ballot and make sure that their voice is heard by their government.”


Assemblyman Levine can go eat a big bag of dicks.

Going through life without a sense of humor must really suck big time.

Apparently, in the United States, a person can no longer be against the unlawful invasion of illegal aliens without being labeled a racist. Forget the fact that nationality is not a race. Somehow, supporting federal law has become “offensive,” “classless” and “horrific.”

That’s what the social media mob is calling a vanity license plate in Utah, which reads “DEPORTM.”

The plate was thrust into the spotlight by Twitter do-gooder Matt Pacenza, a Salt Lake City English teacher. He posted a photo of it on both Twitter and Facebook last Thursday.

Who has incense at an auto repair shop? Our Genius Award Winner.

When gasoline fumes got too intense at an Indianapolis auto repair shop Tuesday, workers thought they had the perfect solution.

It didn't work. Instead, a fire that heavily damaged the business broke out.

According to Indianapolis Fire Department Battalion Chief Rita Reith, workers at the Auto Center Store on East 38th Street and North Franklin Road had emptied a gas tank on a car and put the gas in a bucket. When the fumes became too strong, they lit incense to help with the odor.

Embers from the incense found their way into the bucket and the gas went up in flames.

Help on the dementia front. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

In this volunteer-run partner dance class, seniors suffering from dementia are able to regain a little bit of their former selves with every step.

At the Ballroom of Reno in Nevada, dozens of Alzheimer’s patients and their partners are able to attend dementia-friendly dance classes that teach everything from swing dancing to waltz.

Not only do the classes help bring the seniors out of isolation, they also offer a number of physical and cognitive benefits which collectively make “the perfect combination for brain growth,” class instructor Desiree Reid told KOLO News.

9 "famed economist Milton Keynes


There is a night club called Famed Economist in Milton Keynes, UK. She got confused. It happens.

Milton Keynes has a pretty good nightlife for a mid sized city in the middle of the UK. Used to go over there from time to time when I was stationed there.

10 Hey everybody, again. :-)

Posted this at the gun thread but apparently no one saw it. Thought it was worth just one more try.

On Twitter, someone asked Ricky Gervais what his opening joke would be if he were hosting the Oscars tonight. He responded:

"I can't wait to hear all your inspirational speeches about equality, and it's great that the 3 hours you're here tonight is the only time your badly paid migrant house staff will get some time off to sleep this week"

Well, I guess when Brandon Bryant is inevitably found to be lying and leaking like they always are, and faces a court-martial, I can look forward as a taxpayer to paying for not just his incarceration but his transition to "Brandi Bryant." Then he can be released early to live his life as a brave, powerful wahmmenz.

If past is prologue, that's how all this works.

14 *huffs the crack pipe*

Since Venus has no water, is 700 Kelvin on a good day [up the Ishtar], and is 6 Mega Pascals of mostly CO2 there...

... say we hollow out a chamber in Mount Maxwell, seal it with an airlock, and run the temperature down to 250 K (-4 F). Suck in outside air as needed to keep the pressure the same.

Looks like I've now got a pool of liquid: Carbon Dioxide, in a cold nitrogen atmo at 6 MPa. CO2's triple point is 217 K and .5 MPa; it doesn't go supercritical in Ishtar pressures.

Any reason I can't use CO2 as my go-to liquid for my mining needs? (My robots', anyway.)

[and how do I chill this gas in the first place... chemical endothermia?]

Well the only way to cool something is to make something else hotter. So you need to heat up that 700 K CO2 for a closed cycle. Carnot will not be your friend. otherwise you need to deorbit some LHe ( I call it liquid electricity) and let it boil off to keep things from slagging.

78 this morning at 6am I went out to get firwood from the stack in the back yard, and looked up and saw a stream of lights going WSW to ENE, I counted about 30 of them, and each one was going on a slightly divergent angle from matching their passage against the stars.

I went and looked it up, yesterday a communication company called OneWeb launched a multi-sat rocket payload of 35 "fridge-sized" satellites from Baikonur as part of a communication constellation.

It was sort of spooky to watch them go over not knowing what they might be - they really looked like ghost lights or UFOs or something. I am pretty sure I saw the sats start to disperse.

102 I didn't watch the Oscars probably ten of the last eleven years. I never watched Dem debates either. But I watched one of the early ones and enjoyed the commentary and ridicule that went on here. So I watched the Golden Globes this year and it was fun for obvious reasons.

For so reason I kind of want to see what they will say. They are so absurd it has reached the amusing stage at this point. I am rooting for foreign films as the recipients are less likely to get political.

BTW, right from the start Brad Pitt really beclowned himself. The guy finally wins an acting Oscar and talks about John Bolton.

141 Is gerrymandering something that would help improve the situation?

What Tur means is that California should have ten seats in the Senate.

"But the 48 actually represent 12 million more voters than the senators who decided to keep Donald Trump in the White House."

Needless to say, this is entirely because of California. Diane Feinstein got six million votes in her last reelection campaign, and Kamala Harris got seven and a half million.

It's like the 2016 election - seven of the ten most populous states voted for Trump, and Trump got the majority of the popular vote outside of California, but his election is invalid if the Democrats can manufacture enough ballots in California to offset the rest of the country.

Posted by: boulder t'hobo at February 09, 2020 10:11 PM (ykYG2)

It's Venus. There's no water. Deal with it. First off, nobody is going to be mining there unless it turns out to have fabulously rich deposits of something outrageously valuable. The dirt on the ground could be studded with ten-carat diamonds, and it probably wouldn't pay to send a robot with a rake and a basket to fetch them.

If you have enough space-going ability to make landing industrial-scale robots on Venus, you could be mining the asteroids, or the moons of Jupiter and Saturn a whole lot more easily. Even Mercury might be more amenable to being mined.

Having said that, since you are writing fiction, you can posit some circumstances that would make Venus mining an attractive proposition, I suppose. As far as mining liquids go, instead of trying to chill and liquefy CO2, why not find some element or simple compound that is stably liquid under Venus-surface conditions? Maybe liquid sodium would work.

Funny how the Democrats sort of ignore the 'modest' part and forget about the second part altogether.

I was thinking about writing a book about Democratic problem solving. The first 500 pages would be problems and each would refer to page 501 for the solution.
On page 501 would be
1. Raise taxes.
2. Raise spending.
3. Give yourself a raise.

Antifa did show up, of course, and lacking any KKK people to fight, started throwing things at the cops, as usual.

Several video journalists tried to film the Antifa demonstration, and Antifa went after them, since Antifa does not want people filming their actions.

Two of the video journalists were hit with bear spray, which is obviously assault, in full view of the cops. The cops did nothing. The cops explicitly told one of the video journalists that they weren't going to protect him.

If an Antifa person had tried to bear spray a Portland cop, he would have been body slammed, but civilians are on their own.

The bright side is that this illustrates how dependent Antifa is on friendly local law enforcement - if an Antifa person had done that in a Portland suburb, they'd be in cuffs in thirty seconds.

Absolutely no Heechee!

You need unobtanium to make the economics work while on the left side of the Singularity. As AOP noted, asteroids, & moons have less engineering challenges.

Why not go with a prison plant for Hortas or other Silicon based life that go bad? They can't use asteroids for some reason.

Or some refining of extremely large metal and Silicon crystals to turn Venus into a fancy quantum computer, interstellar transmitter, or a neutrino detector?

Might be easier to build heat-tolerant electronics. I see no particular reason that high-temperature semiconductors could not be made. Make your circuit boards out mica sheet, with the printed wiring made of tungsten.
Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at February 09, 2020 10:37 PM (LxWV7)







The big problem is the connections between components and the board. The connecting metal melting point needs to be low enough to melt without destroying the components or delaminating the circuit board traces. But it also needs to be conductive enough to efficiently transmit the electrical energy to run the circuit. Not many metals meet those requirements.

283 I've been expecting the D's to try to make voting mandatory for awhile.

This may backfire though - one of the reasons why Obama won twice is that he went to great lengths to suppress the white working-class vote through negative advertising. The purpose of the negative advertising was not to get people to vote for Obama, but to convince potential anti-Obama voters to stay home, since voting was pointless.

This strategy worked less well against Trump, obviously. Australia has mandatory voting, and still manages to elect conservative movements frequently.

I would pay a lot to see that. Fade in on some Some dilapidated South Bend buildings, slowly bring up 'Dueling Banjos', then flash up Petey's face and drop the pig squealing on top of the banjos.

352 Sock Monkey,

sorry just started making dinner when I saw your post.


I think you are referring to HB1374. Senator Wilson said it is dead. *whew*

And for those in other states, look at the crap the Leftists who have way too much money and ego, and little brain function. We aren't kidding when we say citizens are being assaulted.


I'm on an email thread by one of the good gals in Olympia, Senator Linda Wilson, of the 17th District (sw WA, Clark County east of I-205, part of Vancouver), and she sent out a comprehensive status of all bills she was aware of on Friday.

It is a frigging wall of text, so I broke it down into 2 posts, one showing bills either dead or nearly dead, and those bills that have passed initial steps and are still moving on.

It is still pretty long, sorry.


the dead or close bills:

HB 1068 (Valdez)/SB 5062 (Kuderer) Concerning high capacity magazines.
House bill appears to be dead. Senate bill is dead.

SB 1286 (Peterson)/SB 5340 (Kuderer) Banning the sale of assault weapons and large capacity magazines.
Both bills appear to be dead.

HB 1374 (Macri) Relating to local government authority to regulate firearms.
Appears to be dead.

HB 1530 (Davis)/SB 5434 (Wilson, C.) Restricting possession of weapons in certain locations.
House bill appears to be dead. Senate bill is on 3rd Reading in the Senate, one stop away from a floor vote.


HB 2241 (Peterson)/SB 6076 (Kuderer) Concerning assault weapons and large capacity magazines.
Both bills appear to be dead.
(similar bills still alive)

SB 6161 (Dhingra) Imposing an excise tax on ammunition.
Appears to be dead.


There are so many of these bills in both chambers, it is possible I may have missed one or more. If there is a specific bill you were concerned about and I didn't include it in the list above, please let me know the bill number and I'd be happy to provide you a status update and contact information for the prime sponsor.

I offer the caveat that where I have noted a bill appears to be dead these things have a nasty habit of springing back to life unexpectedly in the 11th hour, so I would encourage you to remain diligently engaged on the progress of these bills.

As you likely know, I am opposed to each and every one of these bills and will continue to fight on your behalf. But please keep contacting the sponsors of these bills (their e-mail addresses are linked above) and let them know how you feel about them. You should also contact Governor Jay Inslee and Attorney General Bob Ferguson, as many of these bills were directly requested by them.

Yours in service,

LYNDASIGNATURE

Now I'm wondering how just low you could go there.

The voltages for such small gaps would be much lower than classical tube circuits (would have to be, to prevent arcing). I'll bet you could coat a wafer with thorium compounds (for the cathode), and another metal (for the grid and plate) and selectively etch it away to make some pretty damned small "tubes", using the same basic processes used for conventional integrated circuits.

I wonder if anyone has ever done any experiments along these lines?

391 "It seems to me Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has the momentum. I heard
it was a good flick but still. What is more Hollywood than everyone
voting for the movie about Hollywood? I haven't seen any of these films
but that is the movie I am betting on."

"Once Upon a Time" is a good movie. I'm not a Tarentino fan, but he does an eerily good job of recreating 1969, and the story is quite good - surprisingly good - and at times, very funny. Also, the Chicoms wanted a recut for their market, and Tarentino told them to go piss up a rope - which raises him about 15 notches in my book.

But you're right - Hollywood do love its movies about Hollywood. That's the only reason why a mediocre musical like "La La Land" and an even more mediocre thriller like "Argo" could win the award for best picture.

Speaking of "Argo": the CBC put together a documentary on the Iranian hostage crisis, called "Our Man in Tehran". It is *excellent*! It focuses on the Canadian ambassador Ken Taylor's sheltering our diplomats in his home - as it should, as the man was a hero and had nads of pure steel; but along the way, it makes Joe Clark look good, and it absolutely savages Pierre Trudeau and Jimmy Carter. You can see it for free on YouTube: Highly recommended.

404 The biggest problem with Venus isn't the temperature, it's the pressure. Almost 100 earth atmospheres, about the same as 3000 feet deep in the sea. The Russians a while back did a parachuting probe, I think it got crushed before touching down. Memory is dim, but I think someone finally built a lander that actually survived a few minutes on the surface. That's the best that's been done so far.

429 The last time I watched the Oskars was when Amadeus won all the things.

Why? You might ask.

Because the previous summer, when I worked in Yellowstone, my buddy Joe and I ran across a young man named Josh. He was cool as hell, and knew how to talk to the ladies.

Turns out he was the son of Saul Zaentz. He told me about the movie. I assumed it was some kind of documentary.

"Nah, man, it's a feature film."

We then listened to Yes, and he asked me about that chick with the blue eyes. I knew who he was talking about. I said she had a boyfriend. he shrugged.

Then later that night we all wandered over to the Lower Yellowstone falls overlook to smoke pot with some other really cool people.

Yellowstone is really amazing after the sun goes down.

I may be a total loser, but I had my moments.

The distant hills call to me
Their rolling waves seduce my heart
Oh, how I want to graze in their lush valleys
Oh, how I want to run down their green slopes
Alas, I cannot
Damn the electric fence
Damn the electric fence

519 "Embers from the incense found their way into the bucket and the gas went up in flames."


I'm hoping it wasn't the fire investigator who said that. Unless it was a very deep bucket so it could get a lot of gasoline vapor collected in there, that's just not how this works.

(Most likely, the fumes filled the place and it went up as soon as the incense got hot enough to ignite the vapors. But t'weren't embers.)

Agreed. It might be possible to coax gasoline into ignition with an ember, but not easy. OTOH, by the time the fumes reached stoichiometric mix, they would have been having trouble breathing.

My guess is NYC, DC, and LA would round out the top five. Not many Brits are taking a three day trip to Idaho.

But it was the Vegas and Orlando that kept coming up and stood out to me. Of course they have a warped sense of our reality. Name two other parts of the USA that are less our reality.

In 2002, spent a couple of weeks in Ireland.

The Irish are fantastic people, and I highly recommend putting a trip to Ireland on your bucket list.


We went to a number of pubs during our visit. In one pub, later in the evening, a guy a table away was saying some BS, and obviously an American. He was drunk.

I got up and walked over to him, and quietly told him he is making an ass out of himself and shut up.

He looked up at all 6'5" of me and said who is gonna stop me, you?

I looked around at all the new Irish buddies I gained over the last couple of hours (really great people) and said, "look around, buddy, no, not just me."

His face turned red, he paid his tab and slinked out.

I wasn't allowed to pay my bar tab, but I left a big tip.

Like I said, the Irish are fantastic people.

604 I'm no stranger to, nor in, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Those there who are loyal to the Crown, are also fans of Americans who we would recognize as "Horde".

The IRA types would gravitate towards AOC and her ilk.

I've visited many a Belfast Pub, while wearing a very loud Hawaiian shirt. I'm a bit of an exotic, whisky sippin, cigar smokin', Texas accented species there. And they love seeing the cel-phone pics of shooting matches, events and the outer fringes (no face pics) from TxMoMeets.

The Ireland you experience depends on the Ireland you choose.

Republic of Ireland (not "Northern Ireland"), tend to be good folk, all around. The further South you go, the less they give a shit about "the troubles."

611 I saw more than a few Americans that talked too loud in public spaces and demanded more ice in their coke. Those are not terrible faux pas, it could have been their first time abroad.

There are many travel stereotypes really. Germans had a reputation when in small groups as not being the most friendly or the best people to pick out a restaurant. The Japanese used to travel in large groups, clicking cameras and not doing much more than taping the whole thing.

The last complaint rings hollow now as that is likely the norm for people these days.

Other than loud people on the Metro or Tube, most Americans I met abroad were nice people just trying to have a new experience. The ice thing was real though back in the day.

I have only heard negative political commentary from Brits although the French could go on and on about the Middle East. That is why I like countries where I don't know the language well, you miss out on the political jibes.

Reagan closed down ALL of the PSYCH hospitals because the DEMS DEMANDED IT back in the 80's.

the reality is that the hospitals were closed by a combo of lawsuits and stupid legal changes passed and signed up in Sacto.

but mostly lawsuits. there *are* laws on the books here to provide for being involuntarily committed, but there are NGOs and lawyers that sue on behalf of the mentally ill, and various rulings have pretty much neutered them.

Jim, I am a cradle Catholic.


An old priest of my parish about 20 years ago who unfortunately passed, Father Paul (great guy and priest), told me that on his first trip to Ireland, he bought a fifth of Bushnell's to give to his host priests. When they opened the gift, there was silence, and then the priest who opened it said, "uh, Paul, Bushnell's is made in one of the 6 counties. We drink Jameson's." He had no idea.
They kept it of course, but put it to the back of the liquor cabinet.

What stayed with me most was the phrase "the 6 counties".

We also spent some time visiting the Irish post office, where the 1922 bullet holes are still there.

Michael Collins was not confused with Tom Collins.

Damn, I had a good time.

628 When I had to be in Buenos Aires for a month due to my ex-wife being severely injured in a car accident while visiting her family, I only knew restaurant Spanish and tried bigly not to be that Ugly American. I wasn't and had people help with translations all the time, including how to ask for McDonald's 'to go'. Don't judge, the burgers were Argentine beef and fantastic. Plus, I wasn't there as a tourist and food was an 'eat and run' type of affair and not something over which to luxuriously savor.

There was this guy who ran a coffee shop right across from the hospital. I'd get coffee and a media luna, a breakfast roll, every day. The first day, I left a tip, which is apparently out of the ordinary. He didn't understand so I pulled out my pocket dictionary and finally got him to understand and he thanked me. I also explained, thanks to said pocket dictionary, why I was there, the accident and all. After that, I'd go in in the morning and sit at a corner table and he'd bring me my 'cafe doble y media luna' without even having to order. One afternoon, I needed a jolt of coffee and went in around 4 in the afternoon. The place was packed. When I walked in, he greeted me like a long lost friend, giving me a hug and ushering me to a corner table, then brought my coffee and bread, again without ordering. The people sitting there began pointing at me and talking amongst themselves. The gist of the conversations were 'Just who the hell is that guy? Is he famous?' No, just a Yank who knows how to tip.

The hotel bellhop was another such person. I let him listen on my Discman some classical music I brought. He then told me that he sang opera. So I poured myself a few fingers of duty-free Haig and Haig and told him to sing anything he wanted. My, but he was fantastic, almost tear-watering. He even went with me to the hospital to sing an aria or two for my ex while she was in the hospital bed; I introduced him as 'El Grande Jorge'. A nurse came up to me and said his singing is beautiful but there are patients complaining and he has to stop.

But seriously, how many people can find an opera singer working as a bellhop in a hotel if they are asshole ugly Americans looking down their noses on the locals?

632 Late to party.

Today is Monday in Japan, so work day. Have migraine so stop early.

Wuhan update. (I do not read much)

- video of apartment building on fire. Claimed it is arson, but who knows. China still uses the flammable panels that caused big fire in UK, and this looks like that, but only one corner - not so bad

(speaking of those panels. Japan outlawed them and told everyone to stop using them years ago. UK and Aus went to cheaper suppler since Japan new panels were more expensive (since, fireproof. Do not know about US.)

- video of woman falling out of building trying to climb from one balcony to another. Claimed it was her attempt to get around the bars on front door, but who knows.

- China saying something about bringing in 150K new doctors to region. But they only have 40k patents. Very strange. Maybe each patient gets barbershop quartet of doctors to sing to them 8 hours a day.

- Japan found 60 more people with wuhan SARS on the cruise ship, so now total is like 130. Only Hopkins site lists them as "other", and WHO lists them as Japan patients. This is misleading. More and more it looks like WHO is under thumb of China. I saw Dr. video today where he was amazed they say shipment from China is totally safe, when data shows virus can survive in cold for many days, so to be safe you should clean things shipped direct from China, I think.

- This puts the Ro on the cruise ship up around 10 depending on how many generations. All the news people talking about Ro are idiots. Ro is useless in such a case. It is modeling parameter to describe model, not reality. ( I have done a lot of modeling for semiconductor industry and have had full time modelers working for me.)

- China still spraying streets and highways with magic fog. Idiots.

- I hear reports that they are having serious supply problems to farms, and livestock are dying. They also have ongoing swine and bird diseases causing low supply. I do not think anyone will starve from this, but Chinese people will be very unhappy.

- they may starve from locked doors and sickness. That seems to be OK with CCP.

- Everyone forgets that major SARS outbreak in Hong Kong was caused by poor sewage pipe in one apartment building. When people on top floor flushed, gas (and mist?) and virus would come out of toilets on lower floors. This caused entire building to get sick. This is because corona virus is in fecal matter and is big threat. Now fear is that people in hosptital are getting sick and since about 5% of patients have diarrhea, I think that is likely cause. With crowded and poorly equipped hospital, that could infect staff, etc. Very bad. I am sure top Doctors know this, but not so sure in China provinces.

- many video of Chinese police beating people for not wearing mask. Kicking in head, punching, and forcing mask on them.

- also video of military taking temperature of people's wrist. That is useless. Wrist is not accurate. even forehead is not accurate in cold weather. Security theater and incompetence.

Have not seen real news yet. maybe after dinner.

I really think we are watching the fall of the CCP. Once the dust settles the people will never forgive this. China may start war to distract; may definitely start purge though. My opinion.

Strategy page said that China was likely motivated by fear of problems, so they signed quickly knowing the epidemic was spreading (before they told world.) Also deal has clause saying that if there is extraordinary circumstances, parties will discuss. This is an out for China in worst case (which is happening) but not unexpected. They will likely need our Ag products anyway.

649 Shooting Clubs in the Republic of Ireland, exist.

Even at the IDPA level.

Now, let your imaginations run wild at the idea of a Texas Mo Meet transplanted to an IDPA setting in the Republic.

With about eighty to a hundred Morons and 'Ettes at the event and partaking in the shooting.

The 'lads would be taken quite aback by the whole pig being roasted Cajun/Cuban style in the Caja China.

And they'd drink us all under the table after the guns were cased n' safe'd.

But we'd slaughter them in the B.S. competition.

And they'd slaughter us in the regaling of tales and singing of songs.

A *spectacularly* good time, would be had by all.

Oh, and the books are open as to the over/under on how many babies result from the festivities?

656 It would make a certain amount of sense for China and everyone else to downplay the spread of the virus. Everyone's economy is so interconnected that if you just closed the border, one whole hell of a lot of things would shut down. Not just finished goods, but many industries depend on Chinese suppliers.

Smart? Probably not, but pulling that trigger would be a brick passer for anyone.

Like I mentioned, I'm watching the DVR'ed, delayed Oscars in the background as I surf the internet, and see the bottle of red is mostly gone.

There was an ad for "1619" and it was from the NY Times, apparently. "truth".

The alternate, hypothetical reality is alive and well. God help us.

No, make that God help them.

There aren't three lights, Winston. Or four lights, Captain Picard.

There is only one Light, and one Flag. One you kneel, and one you stand.

1619? no. 1776.

Never in human history has a single country generated so much wealth for so many people, and created so much good for all people of all social and income classes, than this one we live. And led the way to get more people of disadvantaged circumstances into comfort and security.

Ever.

Posted by: redc1c4

I looked at the genetics over weekend. This is over my head, but what I gleaned:

- Sequence appears most close to a corona virus found in a bat in wuhan

- But, suspiciously, that sequence was only published on Jan 21 so some are wondering if it is real since it was published just before shit hit fan, but after China knew what was coming.

- there seems to be a debate among phylogeneticists on twitter if certain additions to the bat corona virus could have been natural, or were inserted in lab. I do not understand validity of either argument.

- I read that China has had 4 accidental SARS releases since that epidemic, so their protocols seem insufficient.

- People are working with SARS in order to work on vaccines, so no surprise. It is also accused they are working on them for military purposes, but I doubt that.

- So there are a few debates going on (a) was it an accidental release from a lab, and (b) was it an engineered virus. (say to make a vaccine, or to study some feature.)

- I don't think anyone serious thinks it is bio-weapon. I don't either.

- The question comes up since of the first 41 cases, (9?) had no connection to the market or to each other. So it appears that the virus "went into the market before it came out of the market." Of course, it could be that those 9 had connection to the guy who fixes roofs and caught the bats and he isn't talking for obvious reasons.

- Most likely scenario is that it was bouncing around China for a few weeks in November and then exploded once it hit the market.

- China has been saying a pangolin caught the virus from a bat. Some other group is saying a snake is to blame. Westerners are saying some animal, but we don't know what. I do not understand if it is definitive that another species had to be involved, (how much do we know about bat virus, anyway?) but the race seems to be to find where those additions could have come from.

- some group said HIV, but that was quickly retracted. Their evidence was very very slim and I think they misused the software.

I learned long ago about red wine is that no matter how fantastic "that special bottle everyone had to have" ............. there is another special bottle everyone has to have, as long as mother nature gives the vineyards a good growing season.

If not, there is always next year. But the next bottle everyone has to have is always just around the corner.

first! entry:

the wife and i decided to visit Mexico, so we hopped in the car and took the 101 East to the 170 North, merged with the 5 North, then took the 118 East to San Fernando Road north.

5 minutes later, we were in Mexico, but you could actually drink the tap water, and the cops were fairly honest, as we weren't pulled over for a shakedown.

we visited a toy store, got some food and visited the brewery.

then we came back to America.

14.5%?

Although some of those old vine zins are some really good stuff. And if you look, Cali zins are around on store shelves for a good price. What, over a century old now?


I love the west coast, because the Cali, Washington, and Oregon wines. All have their unique heritages. And most all the popular grapes are grown.

And there are so many of them, and capitalism, it keeps the prices down and choices plentiful.

Had a Bro-In-Law that worked and managed operations in the Cali restaurant scene. The first time in the late 90's wife and I visited him and his wife (sis-in-law) in San Jose, he pulled out a Russian River pinot in his rack that Wine Spectator had rated a 99. Being in the restaurant industry, he was able to buy a few bottles, because connections. Yes he was showing off. I didn't mind at all.

I was ruined for life about what a good pinot tasted like.

715 and Westside Paso (west of the 101) is great for reds, as it gets about as hot as the rest of the area on summer days, but the marine layer from the nearby ocean cools it down most nights, giving a daily temp flux that red wine grapes love.

I talked upthread about visiting Ireland for two weeks in 2002. It was a family thing, wife's parents were retired, and very Irish. They had been to Ireland many times, and this was a complete family trip.

We had two vehicles, a small Mercedes bus and a big VW microbus. and two local drivers, one guy a lifelong teacher that just retired, and a lifetime worker at Guinness brewery who also just retired.

These guys turned out to be simply incredible. They figured out we were real and not lefties, that we paid attention in school and business, but didn't brag about it, and knew our history. One night, driving the entire family home to our hotel/mansion after a great dinner, on the big bus we started singing America the Beautiful and Star Spangled Banner. I was sitting up front, and it seemed to get real dusty for our driver. They became allies and great storytellers.

We would go from town to town every few days, and they would say. "eat there, there and there, nobody else has good food". They were never wrong. I learned on that trip was Guinness was actually lunch food. Then they disappeared to the licensed betting shops.

Anyway, they said to NEVER kiss the Blarney Stone. The locals go out every night and piss all over it. It's what the local kids do.

And now you know.

Which is exactly what should happen to Hanoi Jane's headstone, when she finally goes off to her Beelzebub.

In WA state, we don't have Zin as our 3rd grape, rather we have syrah. AKA shiraz to Australians.

Full bodied without a lot of tannins. Some of those red blends in WA use syrah, in addition to cab and merlot. the 100% syrahs can be a mouthful. Lots of body.

And in the last decade or so, Sangiovese. Not a lot of grapes yet, but some vintners are doing great things with it.

And the best thing is that there are so many good choices all up and down the coast, anyone can drink good wine without breaking the bank.

Only difference between a socialist and a communist, is that the socialist doesn't have any guns.

About 5 years ago in a group of people I mostly didn't know, I said that once to a guy who was from Europe, and he said "that really offends me", in proper English with an accent.

I said, "you know what offends me? Sixty million dead people because of communism, fascism, and socialism, in your own backyard".

He didn't want to continue the conversation and walked away, and a couple of chuckles and smiles appeared from some people observing.

IIRC, I then got another beer.

A Petite Syrah, a good one, can never get the price it deserves in the retail wine market.

Which is good for us who love it.

And some of those Argentine Malbecs are incredible values for the price.

JT, I can't afford a plumber. I just had the house painted and I'm flat
broke. But my wonderful neighbor says we can do it and I believe her.
We've already relaid a French drain line. Wax ring should be a piece of
cake.

First shut off the water fill line to the tank, flush the toilet to drain the tank. and disconnect the line from the fill valve in the tank.

Next lift the tank off the commode and set aside. Make sure the commode itself has drained down.
Finally lift the commode of the wax seal and set aside.

The replace the old wax seal with the new one. Make sure they are the same size.
Then reverse all this to reassemble.

When I had my knees replaced, it was an early AM surgery. After about 2 days in the hospital, I finally felt a little like eating. I ordered coffee with my breakfast. Such anticipation, such a let down. It had little flavor, and that flavor was bad. I texted my wife that AM and asked her to bring a cuppa from the local 7-11 on the way to see me.

Posted by: Bruce at February 10, 2020 06:20 AM (vd8XM)

805 Included in all that is tacking the nuts off the bolts holding the commode to the floor. When you reassemble make sure those nuts are put black on tight so the commode is snug to the floor. Having those nuts loose is the only way that wax seal will ever start leaking as the toilet rocks back and forth,

Thing is, all these forums of government including the Nazi and socialists come from Europe. One of the reasons I don't understand why Americans seem to think so highly of Europe. They dragged us into two World Wars, they are always fighting each other over something. Yet people here are so interested in their Monarchies. They supported the Slave Trade until they didn't and piracy as long as they got part of the loot. Not to mention the Inquisition. We fought two wars against England to get away from them and a war with Spain. And these far left Democrats get their ideas for our country from them. To hell with European politics. Oh, and their snob leaders hate America. Europe can be Europe but we do not need their ideas over here.

845 Funny commenter joke at Breitbart:

There was a little girl in New Hampshire whose family dog had pups. She told her teacher, "Our dog has had puppies and they are all Democrats." The following week Joe Biden was visiting the school and the little girl was invited to tell the story of her family dog. She said, "Our dog had puppies and they are all Republican." Joe was apoplectic but his minders got him out of that classroom pretty quick. The teacher asked the little girl, "What happened? Last week you said your puppies were all democrats." The little girl replied, "Last week they were all Democrats, but over the weekend they all opened their eyes."

900 The great news is, here in the United States, we are our own barbarians.

I think the point of this is much like the great horde oneness understands that the elite, elder, effeminate, and ineffectual ruling classes are just what they are. Not better than the rest, just lucky enough through blood, connections, and/or bureaucracy to be able to afford a better life.

Barbarians know the life of the courtiers and corruptocrats is just a made up game. Barbarians call it like it is and *shudders* wear white damned pants way after Labor Day.

906 852 Carville is referring to an idea, a "social construct" that used to be commonly discussed at one time, called "moral hazard." There is a moral hazard involved in debt payoffs to select groups of society. This doesn't seem to occur to the democrats. You could see the look of aggravated perplexity on Warren's face when she was confronted with the notion.
_____________

Carville is also the father of two daughters in their mid-20's. Like the guy who confronted Warren, he's probably not too thrilled with the idea of a free ride for the kids coming up now, after he spent years paying to put his own kids through college.
