The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

So look, if this insanity happens again, news sources have to rein it in. Everyone knows corona is no walk in the park, because you literally can’t walk in the park, but at some point, the daily drumbeat of depression and terror veers into panic porn. Enough with ‘the life will never be the same’ headlines, and stop showing us this, you know everything looks scary when you magnified it a thousand times. Here’s a pubic hair, boo!Bill Maher


Quote II

‘Households are capitalism’s pressure cookers. This crisis will see a surge in housework – cleaning, cooking, caretaking, but also child abuse, molestation, intimate partner rape, psychological torture, and more.’ Far from a time to acquiesce to ‘family values’ ideology, then, the pandemic is an acutely important time to provision, evacuate and generally empower survivors of – and refugees from – the nuclear household,” Madeline Lane-McKinley


Quote III

A quarter mil is a stiff price to pay to drink a lot of Old Milwaukee and cavort with eager booty callers for four years. You can do that at home, and without all the pronoun drama. Look for scores of mid-level colleges to die as the vast majority of students move toward a utilitarian model over the pricey vacation model.Kurt Schlichter


Quote IV

"This is not ok to take picture of people and post them. What is next? Train to Dachau?" Commenter on social media platform on Nextdoor, Los Angeles, CA.

If you post racist screeds on social media, what is the proper penalty? If you are a senior in high school at Carrollton High School in Georgia, you are booted from school.

A Georgia high school expelled two white students after they posted a video to TikTok saying negative and racist stereotypes against Black people.


I don't expect the ACLU to jump to the students defense now that they are favoring Brown Shirt law enforcement tactics throughout the USA.

The ONT would like to salute Command Master Chief Mathew Rife and buy him the beverage of his choice.

One man was seen in video and photos taking a patriotic stand against the town’s restrictions.

With a sign planted in the sand that read “LAND OF THE FREE,” a fully decked Navy Master Chief stood in the ocean waters and drew the attention of law enforcement officers and curious bystanders on Thursday.

Wearing full Navy Service Dress Blue, the man, who was identified in a video as Retired Chief Rife, stood calmly with his back to the waters, making his silent but powerful protest. Command Master Chief Mathew Rife retired from the US Navy in 2019.

You would think a smaller rural county in Wisconsin wouldn't have Gestapo-Lite LEO.
Think again.

A student in Marquette County is suing after allegedly being threatened with arrest if she did not remove her Instagram post about her possible infection with the Coronavirus.

The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) filed a lawsuit in federal court Thursday on behalf of Amyiah Cohoon and her family against Marquette County Sheriff Joseph Konrath for violating the First and Fourteenth Amendment rights of the Oxford, Wisconsin teen, over the removal from the social media website of a picture of Coon in the hospital.

“There are no circumstances that would allow law enforcement to police social media in this way,” said WILL Deputy Counsel Luke Berg in a statement Thursday. “At a moment when civil liberties need to be guarded most, the Marquette County Sheriff must be held accountable.”


On the other hand you would think that a LEO of a larger metro area would be in love with his new found "power". That isnt the case.

Wisconsin’s Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling indicated in a statement he posted on Facebook he will not enforce the state’s stay-at-home order, which Democrat Governor Tony Evers (D) extended through May 26.

Schmaling wrote “state law does not have the power to supersede or suspend the Constitutional rights of American citizens.”

Sheriff Schmaling has more GD balls than all of the elected Republicans in the State of Wisconsin.

I can hear them throughout all of the capitols across the country. Duh! We never thought of that and the Law of Unintended Consequences.

NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Dwindling supplies of carbon dioxide from ethanol plants are sparking concern about shortages of beer, soda and seltzer water – essentials for many quarantined Americans.

Brewers and soft-drink makers use carbon dioxide, or CO2, for carbonation, which gives beer and soda fizz. Ethanol producers are a key provider of CO2 to the food industry, as they capture that gas as a byproduct of ethanol production and sell it in large quantities.

But ethanol, which is blended into the nation’s gasoline supply, has seen production fall sharply due to the drop in gasoline demand as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Gasoline demand is down by more than 30% in the United States.

The lack of ethanol output is disrupting this highly specialized corner of the food industry, as 34 of the 45 U.S. ethanol plants that sell CO2 have idled or cut production, said Renewable Fuels Association Chief Executive Geoff Cooper.

Leave it to our "betters" to rub salt into an open wound.

But, as the MSNBC report noted and the Elizabeth PD explained, the newest drones were “on loan.”

“We have been using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drones) since 2018, however, the new models are equipped with voice capabilities. We were able to secure 5 DJI Mavic 2 UAV, on loan through DJI’s Public Safety Disaster Relief Program – thank you to Wayne Baker, the DJI Director of Public Safety Integration,” the Facebook post read.

And the MSNBC report indicated that the drones were “donated by DJI, a Chinese company,” and “have gone to 43 agencies in 22 states, all to help enforce social distancing rules.”

Thou Shalt Not Have Fun. The wages of sin fun is draconian over reach.

SAN CLEMENTE (CBSLA) — A popular skatepark in San Clemente was filled with sand to discourage skaters from using it during the coronavirus pandemic and to promote social distancing.

San Clemente had shut down all its parks and facilities on April 1 under the state’s stay-at-home orders, but skaters ignored signs warning against trespassing at the Ralphs Skate Court, 241 Avenida La Pata.

It sucks to be hospitalized. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.


Challenging times are made more challenging without the support of friends and family—and for COVID patients isolated in the hospital, visited only occasionally by doctors and nurses, the challenge is even greater still.

That’s why grassroots nonprofit COVID Tech Connect (CTC) is asking tech manufacturers to donate WiFi-enabled devices for hospital patients to video chat with their loved ones while they undergo medical treatment. Their goal is to collect 20,000 donated devices.

On their website, CTC explain that hospitals are no longer admitting family members or friends due to heightened demand on services and the risks of spreading the disease.

4 As part of the Great Post-Chinkflu Reckoning, Bezos needs to be stripped of the Washington Post-Democrat. There is no larger conflict of interest than owning a newspaper that can be and is used to lobby for actions favorable to its owner. The latest case in point is the wuhan scare, which keeps brick and mortar competitors closed, which is a net benefit to Amazon. Can't leave the house, better shop online. Close the local stores and malls, and who scoops up the shoppers? This particular trend is already playing out of course, but the Post can and is being used to accelerate it. See also AWS DoD contracts, etc, etc.

15 Households are capitalism's pressure cookers. This crisis will see a surge in housework - cleaning, cooking, caretaking, but also child abuse, molestation, intimate partner rape, psychological torture, and more. Far from a time to acquiesce to family values ideology, then, the pandemic is an acutely important time to provision, evacuate and generally empower survivors of - and refugees from - the nuclear household

So, the pandemic is going to have the same effect on families as THE SUPER BOWL! BOOGAH, BOOGAH, BOOGAH!

Far from a time to acquiesce to family values ideology, then, the pandemic is an acutely important time to provision, evacuate and generally empower survivors of - and refugees from - the nuclear household

Whenever I read opinions like this, I wonder what the hell kind of freak family the person came from. I don't know about you people, but I came from a family where there was not child abuse, rape, molestation, psychological torture, none of those things.

These people look at the worst people out there, and then assume that all families are like that. That's just stupid.

Miley cooked a nice dinner for my mother this evening. My mother later told me that she hasn't had food that good since Aunt Lillian.

That is high praise indeed. My great-aunt Lillian was known the best cook on my mother's side. So much so, some of the other aunts were jealous of her.

I told me Miley she doesn't know how high that praise was.

90 4 As part of the Great Post-Chinkflu Reckoning, Bezos needs to be stripped of the Washington Post-Democrat. There is no larger conflict of interest than owning a newspaper that can be and is used to lobby for actions favorable to its owner. The latest case in point is the wuhan scare, which keeps brick and mortar competitors closed, which is a net benefit to Amazon. Can't leave the house, better shop online. Close the local stores and malls, and who scoops up the shoppers? This particular trend is already playing out of course, but the Post can and is being used to accelerate it. See also AWS DoD contracts, etc, etc.

104 So today, I participated in "Operation Gridlock" in Denver. It was interesting.

Here are some thoughts on it:
- I think it was bigger than the City expected. The traffic jam on the main drag that goes in front of the capitol (Lincoln) extended to the vanishing point. On my first pass, it was traffic mayhem. As I approached the capitol itself, the cops descended and started to try to control traffic (erecting roadblocks on side streets, directing traffic away from main choke points, etc.). It was partially successful, but lots of people were running the road blocks anyway.

- On Capitol Hill at it's peak, I'd estimate about a thousand people. The press photographers didn't show up until it was petering out, so I reckon that any press coverage will show a dud with few people and little traffic.

- Most protesters were on-message. There are always fringe elements and in this instance they were mostly anti-vaxxers and a guy loudly trying to convert any Jews there into Christians. For the most part, though, it was about the shutdown, liberties, small business, etc.

- Little counter-protest. There was one authentic counter-protester on Capitol Hill. Many people who live in the area were riding bikes or scooters around and flipping off protesters and shouting at them - from things like "go back to Weld County" (a more rural county) to "I hope you get Coronavirus" to just expletives.

- East of the capitol, there were what I suspect are paid counter-protesters. They were dressed in scrubs and masks and came out to block one of the major roads parallel to the capitol. I was first in line at the light when they came out, so I shouted at the bint in front of me, "you do realize that this is a one-way street and most of the side streets are closed, right? Do you get that you're actually *contributing* to Project Gridlock by doing this?" Then they got mad, broke ranks and started tearing signs off of people's cars. When the started to congratulate each other and stopped paying attention, traffic started to slalom between them.

- A good mix of ages at the protest proper. I'd say it was about 60% Gen-X, about 30% millennials, and the rest boomers and Zs.

- Most of the cars in the gridlock part of everything locked down traffic pretty badly and most were flying flags (US flag, Gadsden flag, Betty Ross flag most common) and had signs. Everyone made liberal use of the horn.

- The city was either engaging in pretending that nothing was going on, or they were really caught flat-footed, because they were (slowly and inefficiently) running buses through the mess.

Unfortunately he chose television as a medium, which from its inception to not that long ago, has had next to no respect whatsoever for writers. The networks pretty much used him up and spit him out as soon as he got "too old."

"He has vivified the American way in action, once it was reluctantly aroused" -- and it was hard to get it aroused, and it *is* hard to get it aroused, but we got it aroused.

He also pulled a test swab out of his jacket, and held it up for the cameras and said, "You know what it looks like? It looks like one of these." And then he whipped out three Q-tips.

Well, the Joe Biden campaign, smarting from a Trump ad pointing out that Beijing Biden has been licking the boots of the Chinese Communist Party for years, came out with their own ad, with subtitles like:

"But Trump rolled over for the Chinese"

Alfred Hitchcock Presents is on one of the cable channels really late at night. I should record it. His shows were great. He made murder entertaining. Then there was his commentary.

- In what way did Trump "roll over" for the Chinese? Was it his tariff structure and major first-phase trade deal? Was it his constant pressure on them in international organizations? Was it his support for Hong Kong and Taiwan?

- Everything is YUGE and luxurious and beautiful and wonderful. It's Trump's way. Hell, he described *Kim Jong Un* in human terms when they were in negotiations. Gimme a break.

- Those thousands of people who came in from China were US passport holders or US green card holders. Citizens and permanent residents get to come in. They were screened and many were quarantined - except for the ones the State Department smuggled back into the general population against orders because State is a worthless, anti-American agency and has been for about a century.

Copper windings around a 48 in. high-strength steel tube, with a 1 in. smooth bore.

Parabolic antenna at the breech end, facing downrange.

Massive breech reinforcement. "Propellant" will be 1 oz. of C-4 and the "slug" will be a rare-earth magnet encased in a nylon sabot, so as not to bind against the steel barrel.

Upon firing (the slug need not hit the drone at all, here) the resultant Electro Magnetic Pulse will be hugely energized, directional and broad-spectrum.

You'll wanna carriage mount it though.

Recoil is gonna be... rough.

309 POS media uses phony photos to show "crowded beaches" in Jacksonville. Bright sunshine in the pictures even though it was cloudy in Northern Florida on Friday and Saturday.

Some locals took pics in real time of sparsely used beaches.

To top it off, the media didn't even use pics of Jacksonville Beach this weekend, they weren't even in Florida. Hills in the background indicated the beach definitely wasn't Florida.

Then today BCochran tweeted news headlines for stories about Jacksonville beaches and Los Angles beaches using the EXACT SAME FUCKING PICTURE!

There's no math or even romper room 'rithmetic in Sudoku. If you want to analyze it and right programs to solve and create them, math is very useful of course.

It's just a game of arranging things according to a certain pattern. You could use letters or any set of symbols you like instead of numbers.

Portion of willowed comment.

Did get to spend time with great friends yesterday and today caught an 18.5" (maybe mjnus a mm or 2) smalley and 2 nice crappie.
All on light action rod w/6lb test line.
Healthy, chunky fish too.

The fishing tolks will know what that was like.

Tomorrow I'll have a rod out for blue cat and hopefully catch a handful more crappie to add to those 2 to make a nice batch (for a single guy) for the freezer.
Still eating sandwiches off the last batch I fried up.

Good night and May God Bless

Who knows who it was that always closed his show with that?

Miley is into Sudoku, and managed to get my mother addicted to them as well. Their interest prompted me to write a routine to solve them.

It works well enough, and will solve most of them in no time flat. However, one time, one of them threw it for a loop. Big time. It got the right answer, but only after an hour of iterating.

The trouble was that one just happened to be arranged such that my program had to take just about the longest possible "guess path" to arrive at the solution.

The trouble was I need to up my deterministic detection. I'd put a few simple ones, and when those were exhausted, it just began to guess from the candidates.

To avoid that long iteration possibility (which has only happened once), I need to go to more complicated deterministic detection schemes.

maybe they're trying to get actual wolves or at least dogs to join them or something

so tomorrow is our PA protests but I really do have to work sadly. I hope it goes well! I got to see our Lt Gov today. he makes Richard/Rachel seem normal. I don't think the Lt Gov is actually human

where did wolf find these freaks?!?!

ANYWAY! out of desperation for tax revenues, Wolfie is opening a few state stores this week but only for preorders and curbside pickup.

I don't care I won't ever go to a PA state store again. Not ever. This was a crisis and they didn't want to do their jobs (but they of course wanted to be paid). they can go jump in a lake!

It is hard to find and pretty much impossible if you don't have an Asian population. You might be able to find it at a good Japanese restaurant.

I found one bottle and it was ok at first. For sure it it higher quality and all natrual. I think they make it out of sweet potatoes. A bottle will cost you around $30 which is way more than soju. The first few shots are ok but after a while that stink comes in. The Japanese drink a lot more shochu than sakai. that is not well known here.

418 The key to sudoku is figuring out what numbers a square can't be, not figuring out what they can be.


********

I disagree.

The key to Sudoku is understanding the personality types of the different numbers, and from that basic psychologic understanding, then making educated guesses about their preferred positions within the given puzzle grid.

Ones are straightforward.
Fives are sneaky bastidges.
Never trust a seven any further than you can throw it.
Threes, sixes and nines tend to congregate.

And it matters how you write the number. Twos need a squiggly tail, fours have to be closed at the top and eights have to be 'snowman' style, two separate ovals stacked up.

Don't attempt logic.

Or a big "P" in my case. Physics is what I was edumucated in.

Me, I'm really more of a knowledge for the sake of knowledge type.

A contrast comes to mind. Hertz vs Marconi. Hertz, a physicist, first proved the existence of the electromagnetic waves predicted by Maxwell. His students asked what were the practical uses of this new phenomenon. He just sort of shrugged his shoulders and said "I dunna know. Nothing, I guess." Didn't much care.

It took a Marconi to figure that out.

427 Y'all probably remember I've been tracking numbers since late Feb/early Mar on the dreaded crud-flu.

Definitely see very positive trends for all of the 19 states I follow--even though it is clear that some of the death stats are juiced up some days (for the obvious, and heinous reasons of higher reimbursements, or perhaps to prove the "narrative).

What is interesting is to see the % of "closed cases" that are increasingly ending in recovery, praise God.

Also am starting to look at some variables to look at different levels of ubiquity of the crud-flu. Density, presence of a major international gateway and date of first infection appear to be statistically significant. Avg. age of population and comorbidities we know are an issue with likelihood of survival (or not) but it is hard to get a decent publicly available data set to represent those.

But interestingly, and as I expected, average temperature does appear to affect prevalence of the crud flu. No surprise--just think of NYC where not only is it cold, dense, highly international and has mass transit, but also the buildings are tall and limit how easily sunlight can get to the street.

Philly is actually doing great tho - why so much better than NYC? it's dark there too cloudy, cold, has subways?

I think it's just more to do with international travel patterns ("death ambassadors" and their destinations). and NYC is just a bit more dense in general than Philly is.

452 Counter drone weapon? Repurpose a microwave oven magnetron and feed it's 2.4 GHz signal into a small parabolic dish. Might not destroy the drone, but could overload the receiver circuits and cause a loss of control.

You could probably cook off at least the input stage, if you had a tight enough beam, and maybe the whole circuit board. Just resistive heating might do the job, without even worrying about matching the frequencies.

You could power it with an inverter from a car battery, at least for short bursts.

I think I'd try pulling out the entire magnetron board and the waveguide, to avoid having to fabricate those. Then point the waveguide into your dish.

I have been really disappointed by PA. They gave Trump the victory in 2016 and that was big freaking deal. Since then it has been all downhill. To bad because large sections of PA are as pro Trump as anywhere in the country. I have seen their signs, they are permanent signs made out of wood. But I guess the Dems figured out how to get the victories.

Anti-drone technology. Drone Defender is the name of an anti-drone device. It's a point and shoot jammer. Unfortunately it can't be sold to the public because of rules. But they are selling it to govt agencies.

Cheap drones will just fall out of the sky when they are jammed.

Another one is hijacking. The command signals can easily be hijacked. Just give it a stronger command signal.

And one outfit is training eagles to attack drones. They can easily overpower and take one out, even bring it back to you.

Another device is indeed a net. Bazooka like thing fires a weighted net at the drone.

492 Black Orchid: "interesting!

this April is cold and not as sunny as I'd like. hoping that Philly area gets our week of spring soon to knock this bug OUT!

Philly is actually doing great tho - why so much better than NYC? it's dark there too cloudy, cold, has subways?

I think it's just more to do with international travel patterns ("death ambassadors" and their destinations). and NYC is just a bit more dense in general than Philly is.

regardless, half of the deaths in PA have been in nursing homes. awful, but take that out and we are REALLY doing well here"

You are right that the nursing home component is huge. Not just in PA, but also in VA, NJ, TX and MI that I know of. WSJ had an article on it this week but as is sadly true these days not a very in-depth or well researched piece.

I think you are spot on Black Orchid, regarding the int'l travel aspect. FWIW, NY is 1.5X more dense than PA (state level figures--city to city would be different but as I recall Philly is not quite as tall as NYC. I worked in the latter for many years).

PA is also warmer on average by several degrees.

508 If you really want to understand how our country is starting to recover, you can get good tracking by following American Airlines from the Tulsa Airport (TUL). When this whole mess started, AA was flying in a dozen aircraft a day from their international routes. When they do this, they use funky 9000 flight numbers and they park their international aircraft on some of the taxiways and lesser used runways. They are carried on the boards as "arriving flights only. The are now doing departures of four or so flights a day to their international terminals, using those funky flight numbers. So, instead of dozens a day coming in and parking, we now have a handful a day departing. Google TUL. There ain't no new York politicians "adjusting this data. I just wonder where they stashed the crews for these aircraft for the past few weeks. By the way, these flights appear to be going to Miami, or LA, not NY.

526 354 >> don't think I could do sudoku, what with being functionally innumerate and all...

There's no math or even romper room 'rithmetic in Sudoku. If you want to analyze it and right programs to solve and create them, math is very useful of course.

It's just a game of arranging things according to a certain pattern. You could use letters or any set of symbols you like instead of numbers.

I'm that kind of cook.

Posted by: Miley, the Duchess - Hydroxy Chloro Queen and Bat Soup Nazi at April 19, 2020 11:54 PM (rCwaK)


I'll try.

50/50 ground meat and ground pork. Lots of fresh chopped Italian parsley, more than you think you need. A hefty amount of grated Parmigiano Regiano cheese (none of that boxed garbage or the cheaper American stuff); don't skimp, at least a cup. 1-2 eggs depending on the meat amount; figure about 1 large egg for every 2-3 pounds of meat. A good dose of powdered garlic, 2 or so teaspoons. A good sprinkling of fresh-cracked black pepper, about a teaspoon. 1-2 teaspoons of dried basil. Gently mix well (don't over mix as it toughens the meatball). Shape into 2-3 inch diameter meatballs. Cook the meatballs in a skillet in batches, browning all 'sides'. (They don't have to be completely cooked as they finish cooking in the sauce.) Make your favorite sauce and submerge the meatballs in the sauce and cook, stirring gently, for as long as you want, at least 4 hours.

With three pounds of meat, you should get around 20-22 meatballs.

To taste test your meatball mix, make a small, teeny tiny burger and cook it first. Taste that and see if you want to add more of something.

/Why, no, I don't give exact measurements. Something I learned from my Mom; she was big on 'pinches' and 'dashes', 'a little of this and a little of that'. It drove everyone crazy when they asked her for a recipe like this. I know the mix is right by feel and sight.

I initially was looking at the cheaper consumer versions on AMZN, first week of the Great Hunkering Down, dallied and hemmed and hawed, and both models I'd short-listed then sold out.

sounds great, you cook like I do it seems. I never simmered them for four hours so I have to try that. I know Italian Americans would make a sugo sauce or Sunday Gravy and cook it for hours and hours. I have done that a few times but mostly make marinara. I even cheat with jarred stuff at times.

But the meatballs are always on point and the ingredients are legit. Just like making the pasta just right, it takes a lot of practice. Now it is as comfortable as anything as I make spaghetti weekly and have done so for decades. Sure there are other pastas and recipes, but I am glad I call it spaghetti because that is what it is.

602 I never simmered them for four hours so I have to try that. I know Italian Americans would make a sugo sauce or Sunday Gravy and cook it for hours and hours.

You'd be surprised at how long I cook the beef cubes in the broth before I add the barley when I make my beef barley soup. Which I have to make again -- soon. I like to make a big batch of some soup (navy bean, split pea, carrot-ginger, beef or mushroom barley, curried lentil) and freeze bowl-sized portions so that I have my own varieties to choose from when I want soup.

Now it is as comfortable as anything as I make spaghetti weekly and have done so for decades. Sure there are other pastas and recipes, but I am glad I call it spaghetti because that is what it is.

Posted by: Quint at April 20, 2020 12:47 AM (hHxp2)


I use the # 9 spaghetti. The 'Goldilocks' spaghetti: Not too thick and not too thin.

I also use the restaurant trick to make the servings. I precook the spaghetti al dente and drain. In a large skillet I put in the sauce and turn the heat on medium low Then I add the spaghetti to finish cooking, adding more sauce as the pasta soaks up the sauce. My Mom didn't do that but doing that really flavors the pasta.

And there's never enough parm cheese on it.

605 Well, I had a mixed-bag day today. Started off by hoeing weeds in the driveway until it became too warm in the midday Sun. But got all but the least conspicuous corner done, so it is looking good.

Then I unscrewed the barrel out of my Chinese Mystery Pistol, in an effort to determine if it could be screwed in further in order to correct an apparent headspace issue. Answer is no. A shoulder on the forward end of the threaded area precludes that. Probably the best solution is for me to buy a Tokarev TT-30 barrel, and adapt that. They are fairly inexpensive, too.

Then I cut some panel board, and finished the interior walls of the closet for my guest bedroom. Next step is to put down some click-together laminate flooring in the closet. Got to establish that floor level, in order to get the opening the correct height for the bifold door.

for sure I cook it until just before al dente and finish in in the sauce. Yeah, in the old days everyone just poured the sauce on top. We know better now. And depending on the sauce, a bit of the starchy water can be thrown in, it helps keep is from drying too quickly and the starch can help bring structure to a thin sauce.

one thing you did not spell out before but for sure you know. I am only saying for others, don't ever get pre grated parigiano reggiano. Grate it yourself when you need it.

I wish i took that effort with soups and stocks. I have done it for sure. I even make ice cubes out of fresh stock four sauces. But no way I do this regularly. It would be awesome to have homemade soup ready in the freezer whenever you want it.,

Posted by: Quint at April 20, 2020 01:09 AM (hHxp2)


One time I made shrimp cocktail, I bought shrimp with the heads on. So I cut off the heads and peeled the shrimp and cooked them in my flavored boil. Chilled (stored in a glass container in layers with thin sliced lemon). Served with homemade cocktail sauce, sometimes with fresh chopped cilantro for a change of pace.

But I did not discard those heads and shells. Put them into a heavy duty sauce pan and dry stir cooked until they turned pink. Then I added lots of water to cover and simmered down over low heat for a few hours. (Make sure your kitchen exhaust is up and running as it is stinky.) Once I got it to a golden hue, I strained it. I froze it and later used it to make a linguini (adding some of the shrimp stock to the water) with shrimp and sliced fresh-pitted green olives and a red sauce with more shrimp stock added. Made that one up on the fly and it was good.

But for me, the best broth to make at home is beef bone broth. The smell is intoxicating while simmering (better than any pot pourri) and goes into lots of things. Also freezes well.

/My grandmas would be proud that I cook bones to make my own beef/pork/chicken broths. Don't really make a whole turkey anymore but if I did, I'd make turkey broth, too. Waste not, want not.

I made that shrimp shell stock once too. I saved the shells in the freezer until I had enough. I think the idea was to make a boullibaise. I don't recall how it turned out but I did try that.

669 For Operation Counter-Drone, let's pull a bit of late WWII tech into the picture.

Let us stipulate that the arm in question will be the venerable 10 ga., 3-1/2" shell. Lots of single shots, double barrels, and Marlin made a pump-action in this bore for a while.

In WWII The U.S. Military had perfected the Radar Proximity Fuse for Anti-Aircraft work. Most of those were affixed to the 5 inch projectiles as fired by the 5/38 and 5/50, Dual Purpose Naval Rifles.

Later in the war, smaller and cheaper fuzes found their way onto 40mm Bofors shells.

With the gunlaying provided by radar control, those shells would detonate when the circuit sensed being near enough to a radar-reflective object (enemy aircraft), that it would explode in close proximity to the enemy plane.

Well, we won't have the radar guidance.

But with modern miniaturization, and dirt-cheap circuitry, we can haz the fuze.

Let's avoid though, Federal Lockup for an truly explosives-based shell?

How bout a pre-HIGH-PRESSURIZED sphere of some suitable gas in the shell, arranged as to deploy a cloud of Carbon Dust into the air immediately surrounding the offending drone.

They might be able to develop a carbon dust resistant drone.

But it won't be next week.

680 Somewhere on Ventura Highway, In the Sunshine (I added the America lyrics there), a few years ago when I first got into guns I made sure to put away a reserve of a case of each of my calibers (just a few common handgun types). That grew slowly, then I started reloading and stopped shooting factory ammo, then I made sure I had plenty of specialty/self-defense ammo of interest, as well as components (after the last panic).

So at the moment, though I haven't done an inventory in a while, I'm sure I could not buy another round, primer, or bullet, and shoot at my "normal" rate for ..... um, a long time.



I hear ya, I load a lot of stuff for my bolt rifles, .223, .308 but still keep a lot of factory stuff on hand. I shoot my old ruger standard pistol for fun a lot along with the .308 and . 223. The nines and the .357 get shot less. Also love to shoot skeet with my niece. We don't go in order but switch it up a lot for quail practice. The most relaxed I ever feel is when I come home from shooting long range.

If anyone wants to see that Suduko solver, I'd be glad to let you have the source code. It's in a git repository, and I could sign up for a Github account and publish it there, allowing anyone to download/clone it.

I'll have to figure out how to create the github account.

It's written in C, plain old C, and is a command line program. Input is from a text file with the Sudoku entered in.

Also, it makes use of an arg parser library I wrote, which is a work in progress, so I'd have to put that in there. And document the user interface for it too.

My code is very poorly commented and cryptic, I must warn. I would not want to try to figure out my own code. Not a team player I am on programming.

That's getting into a whole lot of engineering to accomplish what could be done more simply, I think.

Remember the old Gyrojet pistols (and carbine)? They had a light barrel, smooth bore, and the rounds were small rockets burning smokeless powder, ignited by a standard pistol primer, The butt end of each projectile had 4 rocket nozzles, inclined along tangent lines to the circle of the base, so that the rocket jets would impart spin, as well as accelerate the projectile to normal bullet velocity.

Anybody with a small lathe could build those projectiles. One would need to build a jig to drill the canted holes, but with a good jig, the drilling would take only seconds per hole. Might be amenable to being made by 3D printer, too.

Now you take a slab of tough plastic like Delrin or UHMW, and drill a row of holes in it. There are your barrels. Instead of having springs and strikers to fire the primers, you have a row of sharpened steel nails, spring-loaded to lightly press the primers. And you can dump the full output of the drone's storage battery into those nails. Just like a spot welder. The primers will cook off in a tiny fraction of a second, I expect.

You mount this thing on your quadcopter drone, and use the drone's power supply to run it. Have it bore-sighted to line up with the drone's forward-looking camera at, say, 10 yards. Instead of the projectiles being solid bullets, they could be saboted birdshot. Or you could have a mix of types. Sneak up behind an enemy drone, and take a potshot.

Wonder if there are any practical (as in, consumer-level, or adaptable, legal) RF or directed energy solutions to impair/blind/damage a drone.

Perhaps.

But now we're getting into the sphere of Drone vs. Drone dogfighting.

And that's when you deploy the 1/5 scale P-51, and do it right.

But, I digress.

Bubba with a Shotgun, is damn near everywhere.

Give him a box of Proximity Shells, and there won't be an enemy drone in the sky. Well, at least at altitudes below 300 ft.

The "nagging" drones have to close to within a dozen feet, or so.

I can take those out with a BB pistol.

Reading the Proximity Fuse history, the WWII costs of those started at about $732 per in 1942, dropping to appx. $18 per in 1945.

With today's circuitry, those things would cost nickels and dimes.

I'd be thrilled to pay $5 per shell. $10, even.

Imagine chasing the Statist's Drone Fleet to altitudes above 300 ft., Or Else.

Oh, and a swarm of 20 Bubbas with 10 gauge shotties and those shells?

That would be a much HIGHER hard-deck than a mere 300 ft.

With those, we could drive the drones from the lower skies.

705 People, people, people, anytime the politicians say "tax the rich" what they mean is- if you got a job we're going to raise your taxes. Read the fine print on the bill. Most people don't give a damn if the rich has to pay more taxes so they don't care or pay attention. Politicians have been doing this for years (decades). And don't be surprised if they exempt people who "are servants of the people". You don't expect them to raise their own taxes, do you? They are assholes. They don't give a damn about you.

Anti-lockdown protests are starting up all over the Western World, I see, including France and Germany. The Kraut and Frog cops are getting rough with them, beating the shit out of some of them.

Krauts arrested some female lawyer who was calling for protests and threw her in a psych facility. To teach her a lesson. Why she must be crazy to oppose our safety measures.

Someone on a thread yesterday made a really great point that was being glossed over by everyone who is usually concerned about this sort of thing.

Blacks were the bulk of the people riding the subways and working in the nursing homes in places like NYC and NJ, and then they'd take it back to their families, homes, and communities. They represent somewhere around half of the COVID deaths while only 14% of the population. IIRC last week blacks were 100% of COVID deaths in St. Louis.

But shh... We can't talk about that or it would be too awkward for the Democrat mayors to explain why they don't think black lives matter.

He's the best one to do it, but the cost will be substantial. All of that money I've been saving for retirement will be worth half (or worse) soon, because the only way to keep this ship from sinking is to plug the holes with money. And we will, same as what they did to Bush leading up to Obama and his perpetual "stimulus."

But we'll be lucky to get there. There's no avoiding businesses closing and employees losing their jobs and health insurance. Guess who can fix it, and give you what you need for absolutely noting, no cost to you except one tiny little vote?

840 I'm trying to think of something along the lines of the protagonist, who is flawed and would otherwise seem to many to be unsympathetic, is trying to do the right thing, the doing of which would overcome the apparent unsympathy (antipathy) -- the redemption -- but the bad guy interferes and prevents the redemption, so the protagonist's mission is to bring the bad guy to justice which ends up being the protagonist's redemption. In the end, the formerly unsympathetic (but not irredeemable) protagonist is seen as a good person whose redemption has made up for the bad stuff in earlier years (though none of it harmed another person).

I don't know. Rooster Cogburn was not painted as a bad guy, not as evil, except by the elements who hated him and didn't want him to handle the outlaws he captured as they needed. He was rough, very rough, but not evil. Mattie is the protagonist in True Grit, and she's hard-edged even at 14 and sometimes a little hard to like, but never evil. So I'm not sure where the "redemption" would come in with that novel.

We've seen this recent years on TV: Angel and Xena: Warrior Princess come to mind. Both were working the good side of the street to atone for horrible things they did in earlier years.

Yahoo News, as well as every other media outlet, including "Recommended" or "Trending" crap that gets thrown in your face everywhere you venture on the internet, is nothing but a petri dish of anti-Trump garbage. I usually never pay attention to it, but when you do, it sure hits you just how pervasive it is. It's a full-on tsunami of negativity. It's breathtaking, really.

912 A bunch if idiot celebs gave a concert to benefit the Chinese Communist Oarty tool, WHO, and thank it's crazed totalitarian director. Guess who endorsed the effort? Laura Bush.


The line-up of stars for the event included Taylor Swift, Paul
McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Beyonce, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Lopez,
Elton John, and Lady Gaga, who even described W.H.O. Director-General TedrosAdhanom as a "superstar."

The concert also attracted contributions from political figures such
as former first ladies Michelle Obama and Laura Bush, as well as
celebrity supporters of the cause including former soccer star David
Beckham and Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

Fabiola Santiago. She's horrible. Totally a leftist partisan. Every now and again she publishes some mild Castro criticism to pump up her bona-fides but then goes right back to class-consciousness. She is a Karen by inclination who would happily go full Che if she could.

They don't even bother accusing Trump of racism, misogyny , divisiveness etc... They just state it early on in the story to make sure everybody know it is a proven fact and then move on to he BS distortions and lies. It is mind numbing to read that garbage.

I don't think it's that many. But I do think the fabiolas are working on it.

Currently its hitting donk strongholds harder than anywhere else. Fabiola and Jen Rubin are too blinded by hatred to notice this. They only hate the idea of people going back to work and the economy improving.

938 To fly a drone, say for video shoots, there are specific rules (not sure if they're staye or FAA) you're required to follow, and I've seen a few of these that don't follow said rules, such as how you should never be flying over a person who isn't wearing a helmet. I'd now love to see all these localities fined to hell, as we'd all be if we did the same thing.
