Quote III

"People with glass faces should not throw stones." Tucker Carlson

Who is essential and who isn't? Obviously Michigan governor Karen Whitmer doesn't know the difference.

Gretchen Whitmer Allows Gay Swinger's Club to Operate While Barber Loses License


There is perhaps nothing more confusing than Democrat governors’ orders during the Chinese WuFlu pandemic. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is by far the worst. That was made clear with the news that a gay swinger’s club with “glory holes” is being allowed to operate under her nose in Lansing while she aims her business-killing death ray on 77-year-old barber Karl Manke for giving haircuts.

The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM

The distribution of $1,200 stimulus checks to Americans has given rise to unprecedented online scams.

The FTC has thus far received 18,235 reports of fraud costing victims $13.44 million; Google reported it is blocking 18 million scam emails every single day; and 150,000 fraudulent stimulus check sites have already launched.

Here are the five most common scams to avoid, based on information from the FTC, FBI and IRS during the Coronavirus pandemic.

If they can close down your state for 30 or more days. Looking out for your heart, fast food restaurants to be closed.

U.S.—State governments across America have responded with decisive action after startling reports surfaced that heart disease kills hundreds of thousands every year. In order to save lives, states have ordered all fast-food restaurants to close until we can flatten the curve of heart disease.


When asked for comment, Governor Cuomo looked up from his Double Baconator with fries and said, "Mmfph...Mmm...yeah, there is a health crisis in this country, and the government has the power to stop it. Closing all fast food restaurants to the general public is a good first step. Of course, we would have to exempt the Wendy's in our building. I have to eat lunch somewhere after all!"

"Although this will cost us millions of jobs, it's a small price to pay to save so many lives. If it even saves one life, it would be worth it," said Gavin Newsom as he munched on Animal Style Fries from In-N-Out. "We need to flatten the curve! Of course, this In-N-Out will remain open for me and the other government workers downtown. I mean, have you ever had these burgers? Mmmmmm!"

‘Thank God for the cooler’: Video shows miraculous boat rescue miles off Pasco County coast

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — Two men stranded in the Gulf of Mexico after their boat sank miles off the coast of Hudson Beach were rescued by a group of fishermen who were in the right place at the right time Sunday.

The must-see rescue video was published to Facebook by Adam Vetter Monday.

Vetter was with four others — Rob Wells, Fred Heidgerken and Joe Steplyk — boating back to shore around 6:30 p.m. when they came across a capsized boat about 12 miles off the coast of Hudson Beach.

28 That first quote is on an increasingly common theme. You can't swing a cat without seeing some article, quote, video clip or mournful lament about "loss of trust" in our institutions - the press, the government, academia, corporate America, local cops, you name it.

Have none of these people paused for even a moment ask themselves why this is?

Pro tip for the lamentors: stop lying. You've poisoned the well, so you're probably going to have to stop lying for at least a generation to regain trust. But it starts with you. Stop lying.

36 In the last thread about protesters, which I missed due to cooking supper, I had wanted to add that a friend of mine on the West Coast had a cousin who joined in on those Oil Pipeline protests in the Dakota's back in 2016, the one they tried to make a big campaign deal out of. He said that the promoters advertised among the unemployed on the west coast, by word of mouth, and offered anyone who would go free transportation, free food, and $20 a day to go up there and "protest". Didn't tell them about the living in squalor in cardboard boxes part, but that's where most of them were living before, so they didn't mind too much.

And that's how the left whips together it's protest mobs.

40 Boat dummies probably left the drain plug out. But the boat didn't sink, it just capsized. Most modern powerboats have flotation cells that will keep them afloat, even if swamped.

And then the dummies saw the life jackets float up, and made no attempt to put them on.

But not just any car - the car that hit the auto industry like a thundercap due to its simple beauty that was a slap in the face to the tailfins-turned-horizontal fare that Detroit was otherwise offering up.

I will buy a 1963-1966 Lincoln Continental. Four door. Convertible. Black. I will then have it reupholstered in white leather with red piping.

55 Though I had told myself I would stop doing this, I got in a Facebook argument yesterday with a friend of my cousin's who had been trying to shame her for not wearing a mask at the grocery store (because my cousin runs a daycare and DON'T YOU CARE ABOUT THE CHILDREN?!). I felt kind of stupid doing it, but then she responded to the facts I brought up by saying "it hurts my heart" that people won't think about others and wear masks. So then I didn't feel bad anymore.

72 Reading up any new stories about the Arbery case in Georgia, and based on a sense of some statements I've read today, I'm gonna make a prediction that may be a surprise to quite a few people. Recall that the Mcmichael's, father and son, were in the first truck, and were the two who confronted Arbery in the video. A man named Brady was driving the second truck, and he's the one who made the recording. *If* Brady was involved with trying to chase Arbery, he could be found guilty of anything they're found guilty of (law of parties) BUT if he was just following them and watching, he could get off.

Brady is scared, and says he's in hiding, and is saying he had nothing to do with it. I believe Brady is negotiating with the new Prosecutor to turn State's Evidence and throw the McMichael's, under the bus, in order to guarantee that he gets off with no charges. Remember, he took the video; he is automatically the Star Witness in the case. All he has to do is say, in court, that he knew that they were out to get Arbery, and they are toast, and Brady walks free.

73 Looking out for your heart, fast food restaurants to be closed.

I know that that story is satire, but on the same topic. I hate it when do gooders criticize fast food restaurants. When it comes to high fat, high calorie food, other restaurants are just as bad. Even salads can easily have more calories than a hamburger. Fast food restaurants are no worse than any other.

170 A friend elsewhere is talking about when classic network TV is expected to collapse. He predicts in just a few years, as the Netflix model has pretty much taken over at this stage.

I also shared: What especially bugs me is, how stuck regular network TV is on "formulas." All they ever want to provide are the same old crime/court dramas and cutesy sitcoms, usually infused with tired SJW tropes, again and again and again and again, complete with impossibly attractive lead stars, boring villains, convoluted plots, some shallow hipster soul music thrown in, and "big surprises" that are never really resolved, but always just lead to more "big surprises" promised down the road.

I used to have a 1994 Town Car. I gave it to my dad when I got my 2005 (he still has it). I hit an elk with by 2005 and the insurance company totaled it (most comfortable car wreck I have ever had, and I drove it home - and the collision was at 50 mph). I replaced it with a 2006, which is my daily driver.

I assure you, there is no such thing as "settling" for a Town Car. They are wonderful machines. The last real American luxury car.

It's too bad Detroit spent around 20 years pumping out shit. American luxury wasn't wrong, American quality was wrong. The higher quality stuff from Europe had a very different idea of luxury and they didn't fall to pieces and took over the market. I don't like European luxury as much as the home-grown variety. But they are no more. To compete, it had to be on their terms. All luxury cars are now European. Sad.

Whitmer's just a standard narcissist. Kind of boring; they're all kind of alike. I don't know what Biden is, but I think he looks at his frozen Botox face in the mirror and says "This is fine."

Butt jobs and surgeries are relatively very dangerous compared to other procedures. Mortality rate is about twice the others or so.

The reason is the risk for infection is much higher for some reason. In absolute terms, the mortality is still pretty low, but relative to plastic surgery as a whole, it's terrible.

Butt jobs and surgeries are relatively very dangerous compared to other procedures. Mortality rate is about twice the others or so.

The reason is the risk for infection is much higher for some reason. In absolute terms, the mortality is still pretty low, but relative to plastic surgery as a whole, it's terrible.

241 @209
I'm not going to trade more insults but explain the "context." The "context" (for the socially literate) is that many African Americans are known to distrust the police. And so, it is often said, many of the African American demographic are accused, sometimes correctly, and sometimes incorrectly, of voting "not guilty" in prosecutions requiring faith in the police, or in which overt appeals are made to the possibility of dirty cops.
For example, the little known OJ case provided a salient example in which many, not of the African American persuasion, became critical of many of the African American persuasion over a perceived argument of racial solidarity, and based on what seemed, to many in caucasian groups, to be based on an improbable level of distrust in law enforcement.
So I was basically saying that I could basically relate to that. Not to denigrate the African American community, but to say that, although a stereotype of black juror behavior, a reflexive distrust of the police might, in certain contexts, be warranted.

But I apologize for not explaining more fully. Good night

*Spoiler alert: it's not. It's the product of two primes, 43 and 19.

The Grand Marquis was hard to justify. It was quite a bit more than the Crown Victoria, but not enough nicer than a nicely-upgraded Crown Vic and the Vic was a lot cheaper. If you want a nice Panther platform car, just get the Lincoln. The Crown Vic was available from basic to pretty damn nice, and Town Car was extremely nice. The Grand Marquis was just a cut above the Vic's "pretty damn nice" trims and not worth the premium.

I won't answer the calculus question, but a few years back a mathematician named Ulam discovered something really fascinating about very large prime numbers. In a set of numbers that it was thought were random, there are patterns that can be seen, which suggests the existence of an underlying mathematical structure to the universe that we don't quite understand yet.

Back in college, I had to do a proof of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus for an exam. At the time, it was a piece of cake. I couldn't do it now off the cuff without looking things up. *sigh*.

Then there is the Calculus of Variations, closely associated with Hamilton's Principle of Least (stationary) Action.

When I first learned that, it was a though I got a dim glimpse into the mind of God.

If you want to see something beautiful, and appreciate at least the Mind of Feynman, see him derive Schrodinger's Wave Equation from Hamilton's Principle. He makes it look obvious.

I don't know the algorithm to determine prime numbers, or if there is one. "Calculus" is short for "the calculus of variations". Basic calculus enables you to solve problems that cannot be solved by algebra alone. Say you have a tank that is a horizontal cylinder. You want to calibrate a dipstick to be read in units of volume. How far apart do you make the marks at any given depth?

345 Is there *any* formula for determining if a number is prime, other than just having to go to a calculator and go through every lower prime number, up to half?"

I won't answer the calculus question, but a few years back a mathematician named Ulam discovered something really fascinating about very large prime numbers. In a set of numbers that it was thought were random, there are patterns that can be seen, which suggests the existence of an underlying mathematical structure to the universe that we don't quite understand yet.

352 >> Calculus" is short for "the calculus of variations".

Two very different things, although there are similarities. The latter is about variation of functions, and functionals.

For example, a typical CofV problem is find the curve with the shortest arc length under certain constraints. It results in differential equations for the function that minimizes a certain path integral.

And go to higher dimensions and solve for what is the surface with the minimum surface area with a certain boundary. Soap films find that minimum.

Indeed Nature minimizes a certain path integral, known as the action. Every fundamental law of physics derives from minimizing the action.

God said, "Let the Action be minimized".

Maxwell's Equation minimize the action of the electromagnetic field. General Relativity minimizes the action of the curvature of spacetime. Etc, etc.

Consider Planck's constant. What are the units? Those of action (energy-time product, and many other ways to express it).

That is the fundamental quantization of nature. That of action. Action is minimized and quantitized. The mind of God.

400 Is there *any* formula for determining if a number is prime, other than
just having to go to a calculator and go through every lower prime
number, up to half?



For some reason, yesterday I got it into my head to figure out whether the number 817 is prime.*



*Spoiler alert: it's not. It's the product of two primes, 43 and 19.
---

No, but the good news is you only have to try the primes that are less than the square root of the number in question.

403 The only substantial difference between a Crown Vic and the 'Marquis, was the paint and interior color choices between the "brands".

Both of which came out of the same factory in Canada, btw.

Seriously. Sit in a 2005 Crown Vic (last year for non-fleet 'Vic sales), and an '05 'Marquis. NO difference, except for some very minor trim bezels surrounding identical instruments.

Only in the base 'Vic model, would you find manual seats and a non-automatic rear-view mirror. Otherwise, you could get the same digital dash in the 'Vic as you could in the 'Marquis.

Go up to the Town Car though, and you gained a few inches in wheelbase, an entirely different and upgraded interior, up-optioned electronics, massively improved ride dampening, soundproofing and sense of refinement.

Loved my Crown Vics.

And the current Mustang platform would make for a good renewal 'Vic. It's wide enough, and can certainly accommodate any V8 drivetrain. Give it a longer wheelbase, four doors, taller roof and entirely different exterior lines, and it'd be luxury time, all over again.

No one would know by looking at it, that there's a Mustang front floor pan and firewall, lurking under that Bill Blass dark blue and gold!

The amphitheater is now on the list of National Historic sites, I believe, although it's no longer affiliated with Roosevelt University. It is an exquisite venue! A beautiful little jewel box of a place.

Now... I regret to report that The Doors were kind of stingy with their live performance the night I saw them-- they got on & got off fast.

I once saw Willie Nelson play until everybody got tired & left. Ditto Sting & the Police. I got tired before they did.

But, The Doors weren't into that.

Sorry if I have hurt anybody's feelinz about Jim & The Doors here.

I once went to a concert movie at an art house (no longer extant) & saw a concert film of The Doors. I was 25 years older than anybody else in the ticket line. (snicker) Why are you here, gramps? What do YOU know about The Doors...little shithead?

478 Well, another frustrating day with the Poor Wretched Panhard. Figured I would hook up the speedometer cable. Got to be easy, huh? Both ends are right there. There was even a brand new speedo cable in the trunk. First, I hooked it up to the speedometer. Would.Not.Turn. Disconnected the cable, took a worn-out Robertson screwdriver, and ground the end to a narrow square taper. Inserting this in the drive socket of the speedometer, I was able to turn it. After applying some penetrating oil, and a little heat, it freed right up.

Next snag: the bottom end of the cable did not in any way match up to the fitting on the transaxle. I made an adapter to marry the two together, and it worked fine on the bench. Installed it in the car, which was a pain because I could not use a socket on the two 10 mm nuts, and screwed the cable into the adaptor. Looks great, but the cable core sinks too far into the square socket on the pinion, leaving not enough on the top end to reach the square socket in the speedometer. I think I can fix this by putting a quarter-inch long spacer into the square socket down below, which will push the core up a quarter inch, which ought to permit both ends to engage properly. If that doesn't work, then the only thing left is take the cable apart, cut off the end of the jacket, and reassemble it.

489 So I'm just now reading the thread, so I'm late to the party, but I will try to explain calculus in layman's terms. In essence, calculus is the branch of mathematics that deals with rates of change. Many measurable quantities change - your position, the mass of a rocket, the volume of water in a swimming pool, the velocity at which a bullet is traveling, etc. Calculus provides tools to determine and manipulate mathematically how quantities change, which is tremendously powerful.

One thing that a lot of people don't get about math is that it isn't anywhere near as concrete as you might think - there isn't One Right Way to solve any math problem (contrary to what you are generally taught in K-12). It's just a collection of tools. On The New Yankee Workshop, when the guy wanted to connect two pieces of wood, he could use nails, screws, biscuits, glue, cams, dowels, etc., etc. He picked whichever method was appropriate for his application. Math is the same way. Calculus turns out to be a great tool to solve a lot of real-world problems because so many problems deal with changing quantities.

I hope that helps... I have a whole lecture series of math for laymen in my head that I've yet to write down anywhere. So don't ask about complex numbers (you may have heard of them as imaginary numbers) unless you really want to know!

499 The amphitheater is now on the list of National Historic sites, I believe, although it's no longer affiliated with Roosevelt University. It is an exquisite venue! A beautiful little jewel box of a place.


*********

I grew up in Detroit seeing a new band almost every weekend with friends - someone always seemed to scrounge up tickets to one of the venues - St. Andrew's, Clutch Cargo, Fillmore, Bookies, and many others up I-75. Endless great music and great spots. They're all but gone now and I can't stomach so much as looking at photos of the destruction and decay of Detroit - it is utterly nauseating. Just about everything was allowed to crumble. The Grande Ballroom is the most horrifying to me as it was absolutely beautiful even into the 70s - early 80s. It too is in the Historic Register but Google photos of it today - what Democrats did to Detroit should be a lesson for all, but of course it won't.

The problem with teaching mathematics is that all too often, they throw a bunch of stuff at you with no effort to explain how it relates to the real world. Newton and Leibniz invented calculus (independently) because they needed it to do their work.

If it is taught as a problem-solving method, it becomes quite easy to understand.

The tighter they squeeze the more enemies they make.

We only got this guy because the GOP here is old and slow and stupid so they put up Corbett for Reelection even tho he was way behind the times and just wasn't up for it.

But it was his turn or something. And PA has had a couple good Democrat (in name) Governors so they all figured what the hey. and then they realized they'd elected a Philly lawyer who really didn't like the rest of PA and you see what we got.

He's pissed off one too many moderates and stepped on way too many toes. I think the rural votes outnumber the cities but most are farmers and aren't real hard conservatives cause they live in the past. The mountain boys don't give a shit and the Amish figure they'll be left alone. Not this time. See all the Amish in the store with no mask. What they gonna do if you tell them you're Amish? Nothing. And the men don't wear anything that sets them apart like the women do. They gonna demand my Amish ID?

558 That's why I like the term complex numbers. Imaginary is misleading. Besides, the set of all real numbers is a subset of the set of all complex numbers. If you draw the standard number line going from negative infinity to positive infinity, imagine drawing another number line perpendicular with the first, intersecting at 0, going from negative j (I'm an electrical engineer, i stands for current) infinity to positive j infinity. Then any number can be defined as c + d*j, where c and d are numbers on the first number line (real numbers). Real numbers are just the ones where d=0.

You can't hold -2 oranges in your hand. But you can conceptualize them - if you owe me two oranges, and currently there are zero oranges physically in your possession, you have -2 oranges. Similarly, you can conceptualize 2j oranges by imagining that your oranges are out of phase with our time-based reality. (If you have ever seen one of the many Star Trek episodes where things get out of phase, it's the same concept.)

Complex numbers, like everything else in math, are a tool. Where they come in really handy is dealing with electrical signals (like the ones you're using right now to read this comment). It turns out that using complex numbers allows you to make difficult math way easier. (A surprising amount of math is about making hard problems easier. For example, a problem might be very difficult in the standard Cartesian system x, y, z, but trivially easy in a spherical coordinate system r, theta, phi (radius and two angles needed to describe the point on the surface of a sphere with origin at 0).) It's hard to explain it simply, but basically, you can describe a sine wave with frequency and amplitude instead of describing it with its value at a given time (if you want to read more about this, the search term is Fourier transform), and that makes adding the waves together easy, and basically all telecommunications boils down to adding sine waves together.

I really need to go to sleep, but I'll post in the morning if I have any brain waves overnight. My usual complex number explanation requires a board to draw on!

Some stores are requiring masks for entry, given the stores don't want to be stomped by their governors or Karens into having to close.

But mask wearing is becoming a very individual thing - masks under the nose, especially common with those of us who wear glasses which get fogged up with mask wearing, or masks protecting the adams' apple, or masks pushed up on top of one's head.

I agree, the possession of a mask is going to be required long after the fourth or fifth imaginary wave of "this time for sure" death spike.

570 Regarding the math talk:

Eli Maor has a great book out, e: The Story Of a Number, that provides some fascinating math history. If I'd had it mumbley years ago I might not have gotten disgusted with math, which I did due to the lousy, lousy instructors I had at a well-known and highly-regarded university. They'd just throw crap out there, with no obvious connection to anything the class (multivariate calculus) was about, and no indication of why it might be of importance, much less of interest.

Turns out they could have provided that (primarilly historical) context on any given subject, in about five minutes of class time. Maor devotes an entire book to it, covering series, and irrational approximation, and the computational difficulties that faced early mathematicians and artificers, and logarithms, and e, and he even walks you through the derivation of Euler's identity (e to the pi*i power + 1 = 0). With lots of anecdotal side trips along the way.


Very highly recommended for those with an interest. Available at amazon in Kindle format (free reader for Windows) for $10.

I think the jig is up.

I'm just a bartender, but I deal with a lot of normal people here in TN, and I like to think that gives me a pretty decent perspective on people's mood generally. People were on our governor from the start and a great number of them called it a political ploy from the beginning. Save for a few shrinking violets, people are done with it.

Apolitical types, young and old alike, are calling it the shamdemic, the plannedemic, etc. Our governor has basically lifted everything starting after Memorial Day, but my take is that most businesses are already ignoring guidelines. All the marina are moving forward with rock bands and parties this weekend on the lakes.

I strongly suspect that as people in the rest of the country see the southeast drinking beer, having fun and and living life, that they aren't gonna put up with it any longer. I booked three different wedding receptions today that are wedding parties from Michigan that are getting out of the state because they think it's b.s.

I even asked if they wanted are bartenders in masks or gloves and they laughed and said "no, we want everything normal".

Personally, I think Trump will step in and threaten federal action by June if governors don't open up.

I think their plan to destroy him will wind up making him into the great liberator.

I have no doubt the Spirit of '76 is alive up there. You guys will be free soon enough.

I have not been able to discern a clear demographic pattern, at least as to age and gender, in mask wearing around here.
I would say that there is less mask wearing among the lower classes.

602 I'm with Margarita D. on this one. I don't equate mask-wearers with lefties. I occasionally wear one myself, if I'm going to a store where I know there will be lots of at-risk types (old, fat, unhealthy). I don't wear it then to keep me safe. I'm old, normal weight, healthy, and have - knock wood - a damn crazy strong immune system even now, so come at me, Cro. (Heck, I think I even had it already, but I'd like to know for sure.)

We had a powder blue Mercury Marquis in the early 80s. It was a 70s-something cream puff. Literally driven by a little old lady in Pasadena, who had every bit of paperwork for oil changes and tune-ups that had been done on it.

I received Average Son's stimulus check in the mail. Average Son died in November. On the envelope there's a check box that says something like: "If recipient is deceased, check here and drop the unopened envelope in any mail box." So I checked the box and dropped the envelope in a mailbox.

About a week later, I received the same envelope in the in the mail. Using a Sharpie, I re-checked the checkbox, drew a circle around it, drew four big arrows pointing to it, and wrote "DECEASED" across our address.

Yesterday, we received the check again. Only this time, since we're in the middle of a move, it was forwarded to our new residence down in SoCal, where Average Wife and Daughter are settling in.

I'm starting to think the gov't wants us to cash that check...

Over 600 doctors signed a letter urging President Trump to end the nationwide coronavirus shutdowns and referred to orders issued by states keeping businesses closed as a "mass casualty incident" with devastating consequences.

The letter points out the negative consequences that doctors have observed since state governments started issuing their stay-at-home orders, including patients missing checkups with doctors, increases in substance abuse and alcohol abuse, and negative financial implications.

625 Nightwatch, Back when the lockdown had just begun here in the Bay Area, I had a home inspection to do. I rang the doorbell, and the homeowner answered the door. He was a young doctor, wearing his Stanford scrubs, and no mask. Without hesitation he reached out and shook my hand... I was taken aback, pleasantly. Since then I've met three other healthcare workers who were viewing our house as potential tenants. None of them felt the need to wear a mask...

626 Dispatches from the frontlines of Karen War I:

Column: Plenty of sunbathers are violating coronavirus beach rules. Why aren't they getting tickets?
https://t.co/VLVvFpQhBu?amp=1

I strapped on my cotton mask, got on my bike, and rode over to the mostly empty Venice Pier parking lot to see how things were going. At the south end of the lot, three mounted Los Angeles police officers sat on their horses, looking toward the Palos Verdes Peninsula, at dozens and dozens of Angelenos lolling on the sand, picnicking and sunbathing, in clear violation of the mayor's latest order, which bans passive beach recreation.

I rode up next to the officers and asked whether they'd given any citations. The officer closest to me gave me a look that made me think I'd asked a very silly question.

"No," he said, "that would be unconstitutional. Like forcing people to wear masks."

I rode home and tweeted about the encounter...

..."I'm disappointed to hear that the officer gave you that account," Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore told me Monday evening. "Beach and mask rules aren't unconstitutional, he said, and the reason police were sent to the beach was to tell those men and women who were on the beach sunbathing that they have to leave, and stand by until they leave."

Three sons, three cars, three totals, but thank God no serious injuries. All paid for their own cars and for their own insurance thereafter, as promised. Lotsa hard lessons to learn when you're young, unfortunately.

It's the absurdity of both measures, in general, outdoors.

668 The death of shame, and the dumbing down of the elites, are both visible in the audacious crap from the "public health" academics now, with "studies" claiming earlier lockdowns would have saved lives, and that in fact they can quantify lives saved by the lockdowns.

Both extremely dubious asssertions, which if accepted would require major revision of accepted doctrine by such as the WHO and CDC.

But whereas they rely on bogus counter-factual modeling that will probably be debunked in detail both methodologically and in contrast to real-world data we will now have, the public health damage from deferred doctor visits, deterred hospital trips for stroke and cardiac victims, missed screening tests, delayed vaccinations, etc will be fairly concrete.

Plenty of hard "anecdata" accumulated already in Europe, Canada, UK, and the US, imagine there will be more than that.

I really wonder if what seems to be the complete failure of the CDC, at every stage, in every important way, in this whole episode, will actually be examined and lead to change. There is no House (yet), Senate shows barely more signs of life, and Trump and team have (as far as can be seen) shown zero sign of demanding any improvement.

Texas? I'll struggle to find a *workable* 20 acre plot.

Difference. CA will bankrupt me with taxes and barriers to production.

675 The Canadian federal government has announced today, as the country slowly comes out of lockdown, that they recommend everyone wear masks when out and unable to social distance properly. Since the feds are corrupt thieving luxury-loving hard-left aristocrats one can only assume they're doing this to humiliate and bully the great unwashed teeming millions. Of course all the lower levels of government are fluttering in a big fuss over enforcement of this "recommendation".

694 In my area of Texas, and on up into Central/East/Central Texas, it's hard to beat hay as a cash crop.

Costal on the low commodity end, and alfalfa for the profits, if your soils can provide.

Three to four cuttings per year.

Truck farmers can be more profitable, but they usually depend on one crop per year, and that's not guaranteed.

Next best use of acreage, be it TX or CA?

Hook up the utilities, and build rental units.

Harvest dollars, not stalks or grains.

709 Just thought I'd mention this.

I said in the past how my ICD (pacemaker plus defib paddles) replacement surgery had been put on hold as it was considered non-essential during the COVID-1984 DemPanic (I just love how life-threatening is non-essential), with my surgery rescheduled from early May to tentatively in Sept./Oct. Well, Saturday morning during the ONT, around 1 a.m., my ICD gave me two buzzes/vibrations, about 3 seconds each 15 seconds apart. I didn't know what the buzzing/vibration meant (they never tell you these things) and I got a little panicky thinking I might get shocked. So right then I dropped my Doc a pm through the hospital's patient portal. Got a call Monday telling me, yep, that buzz/vibration was the three-month warning my device's battery is about to expire. (As I've said, my heart operates at 50% power due to a silent heart attack [up from 25% right after the heart attack, but 50% will be my forever limit due to heart muscle scarring] and without the pacemaker/defib paddles in my chest, I'd be long dead as I've been shocked 10 times in 10 years, keeping me going.) So now I've been put into a priority surgery category. I have my pre-procedure blood work this morning and the replacement surgery scheduled for 6/3.

It still amazes me such heart procedures are day/outpatient procedures. Modern medicine, gotta love it. That is, when you can get it.

So having the surgery scheduled is a bit of a load off my mind. So, sorry y'all, now I get to continue being a pain in the ass for a little while longer.

Late here tonight.

But re. the masks-hate wearing them. Sometimes I just forget to bring them with me...And several weeks ago (think I posted this earlier) top tier cardiologist here came into our room without a mask on. I was surprised given the elaborate procedures at the major medical center where we were.

He basically said that he suits up like an astronaut when seeing COVID patients, but maskless otherwise. Makes sense to me.

And why does Malignancy wear here darn masks (always coordinating with her outfit, doncha know) around her neck? I have started to think she is using the mask to disguise her old lady chicken neck.

This will be my third ICD. The worst part of the outpatient procedure is not having anyone to pick me up at the hospital (I live alone) and arguing about being able to leave once I'm fully awake*. I'm fortunate there is Access-A-Ride here. By using that city service for elderly patients with disabilities, they don't argue as much; it's one of those 'you have to be approved' city services and I was easily approved. It's basically a car service with a flat $2.75 charge each way, the current non-discounted subway fare. I have a discount half-price subway card, not that I'm taking the subways much anymore but I do take local buses. And right now, the local buses are free as the driver is 'roped off' in the front and you have to enter the back doors where there is no MetroCard fare reader.

* A funny story was my ablation back in May, 2018. (I had had a 7-day event as recorded by the home monitor, indicating an ongoing issue.) The procedure was about 3-4 hours, with an overnight stay. Upon release, a nurse walked me down two flights of stairs to the hospital front door. I looked for a car service (this was before I applied for Access-A-Ride) but didn't see one. I saw a bus coming and slow jogged to get it, then transferred to the subway home. When I told my electrician that later, he just smiled. Like I said, modern medicine.

Once, when I was a young grade-schooler, we were visiting that Grandma in the hills of West By God. Hanging outside, upside down, was a pig with a bullet hole in the head. The next day, my Grandma, Mom and Aunt were in the kitchen stuffing pig intestines making sausages.

I have a friend who had his re-insertion of a defib put off because of the canceling of "non-essential" surgeries . He's been dealing with an external box for a while now. His has finally been scheduled for June.

Whenever anyone brings up single payer, I tell them that medicare killed my dad. He needed an ICD, but the doctor would not tell the family since he was on medicare and they would not cover it since at the time (about 20 years 17 years ago) it was not standard protocol for his condition. He died a few months later.

Of course had we known, we would have paid cash. I suspected but my siblings excluded me from the meetings with the Dr.s and I was always on conference calls with work so had to be outside of the cardiac wing. But I suspected and researched it as soon as I could but by then it was too late.

749 The story of my dad gets worse. His heart was in such bad shape because he was an Atkins patient and no respectable cardiologist would take him as a patient if he went to Atkins. Atkins was a snake oil salesman scum who did whatever he could to steal from his patients and the entire profession knew it. So he finally got a cardiologist from the atkins office and he was incompetent. He missed CHF (which I was able to detect on my weekly phone calls with him, but cardiologist gave him the all clear so what could I do.) Then he had major heart damage and new (competent) cardiologist went as far as to say that previous Dr. missed it and screwed up bad.

I lobbied for him to not go to Atkins (for Chelation.) but my sister had his ear and what did I know, only a scientist and engineer and businessman who spent hours in a library researching the shit.

So I blame Medicare, Atkins, and my sister for killing him. Fuck all three.

Sorry to hear that.

At the time such devices were 'experimental'. The ICDs back then were huge and had to be placed in the abdomen, which was some serious surgery, with wires running throughout the body. Now they just make a pocket flap above my left nipple with a short wire lead to the heart, or three leads in my case since my heart is so bad. And the devices have shrunk since I got my first one in 2010. The device lump is now barely noticeable.

My ex's father died in 1986 of cardiomyopathy. If ICDs had been around then, he would have lived considerably longer. The devices only started in about 1994 and were slightly larger than a pack of cigarettes; now they're about two half-dollars in size and thickness.

Like I said, gotta love modern medicine.

854 Late to the party, yeah, I know, but my problem with math is twofold:

1) even as a kid I couldn't think of anything more boring and painful than looking at worksheets and just doing math problems for the sake of doing math problems.

2) Then algebra came in and that was even worse, as algebra is abstract.

I much prefer geometry, for geometry is something I can see. I NEED something concrete. Abstractions like ideas I look at in history are fine, but even then, I can't go over the deep end in abstractions. That's what killed me in the very non-mathematical international relations theory - the subject matter departed into the abstract and I was doomed.

At least when I add 2+2, I know I will come up with 4.

Julie Kelly
@julie_kelly2
This whole Kislyak-Flynn call was a set-up. Kislyak tries to call Flynn the day BEFORE sanctions are formally announced, Flynn calls Kislyak back from out of town on December 29 to discuss not escalating tensions...
Then Kislyak (an Obama White House pal) calls Flynn back to confirm Russia won't escalate situation per his request. I mean, COME ON

Also, from the comments:

I guess we know now why the sanctions were imposed then. When this all began I remember some head scratching over that since Obama had one foot out the door. Now it appears they were part of the setup.

I preferred and even enjoyed geometry, as it featured logical reasoning and working out how to attack a problem. I was never taught to do algebra that way, and it all seemed pretty random, what to do with a-squared and b-squared on either side of an equation.

The other problem is that I grew up long ago, when we still chiseled our term papers into rocks, and we did not have calculators. If I'd had those to do the grunt arithmetic work, I'd have been free to look for ways to attack an algebra problem. But I had to do the arithmetic, and while I knew my times tables, still I could make a mistake -- and you don't get credit for a partially right answer in math.

Bars

Restaurants

Privately owned student dorms

Apartment complexes that focus on student rentals

Many downtown central cores are predicated on a large student population generating income across the spectrum.

Downtown Lexington, KY will dry up and blow away if those UK kids don't come back in the fall.

899 Colleges have zero skin in the game? Take a look at the infra structure footprint at a place like Texas A&M and imagine that without 60 thousand kids there in August.

Where will these 60 thousand vote at?
Not in the town the school is located in. They're not residents there anymore

900 I turned in a rental car in North Carolina once. The sweet young girl with that perfectly sexy Carolina accent asked me if everything was OK.

I said in my best drawl that I was afraid not, I hit a deer.

She looked alarmed and then I told her,

"That's not the worst part...it was rainin' pretty hard so we had to gut it in the back seat"

Then I started laughing. She didn't.

904 killing grandma

Under Whitmer's executive order, which she just extended yesterday for a week, any nursing home with less than 80% capacity will be forced to create special COVID units, regardless of their ability to protect their other patients, with the special ventilation systems, trained staff, and personal protective gear something like that would require even if it were advisable, and none of which is included in her order.

910 I could be down with a new normal.


If 'New Normal' is citizens taking a Zero-Tolerance policy toward tyrannical government employees and leaders.

To include pitchforks, torches and such.

Yeh....that I could get behind.

914 Wait, she's punishing the nursing homes that aren't overcrowded, with an onerous requirement to invest in a build out that won't be needed when completed. Instead of using the field hospitals Trump provided and keeping the possibility of continued transmission low.

I'm good with a "new normal" of nurses wearing only sports bras and bikini bottoms, like the side-bar story of the Russian nurse...

'Hot' nurse disciplined for wearing bra and panties under see-through PPE gown

"Why punish the nurse? You need to reward her. Seeing this outfit, no one wants to die."

Yes indeed and RAH agrees

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded -- here and there, now and then -- are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck"!

No big loss imo. Hopefully they'd keep the hospital, med school and ag/eng stuff going. Seems you'd need to be physically present for most of that.
