Good morning Morons, Lurkers, Horde family member and everyone in between. TGIS.

Open thread, opine and/or bloviate away. Just got a couple or rules. Please don't run with sharp objects, do not pull the 'ettes pony tails, no pissing in the pool and play nice with one another.

Have a great weekend.

Doo da doo doo, doo da doo doo, da da doo doo, doot da doo do -

On the crapper
At the diner
On the corner

And the person

Playing games
And smoking ciggys

And he doesn't
Flush the toilet
And he doesn't
Wash his hands

And he's cooking
Up my pancakes

36 My mother died last Sunday evening at age 93. She had a UTI that turned into sepsis and spread to cause pneumonia. She also tested positive for Kung Flu, though the doctors emphasized that, if she was Covid-positive, the typical markers weren't showing up in her blood work and they were absolutely certain that Covid was not a contributing factor.

Guess what my appears on my mother's death certificate? Yep, Covid.

Mom officially died of the Kung-Flu even though she had no symptoms or biological markers. And now my wife and I are deemed to have probable cases of Kung-Flu according to Texas and Collin County guidelines.

But now it also has 2 game stations, a couch, a TV, and an assortment of teens.

Ha! Mine comes close to that when I do my annual claying plus polish plus wax, but that won't be until the weather cools. Say, December or January, if I'm lucky. With my standard shine, I get a good reflection of the curb when the car is parked, and the roof reflects the trees and sky.

Claying is the big secret. Get the contaminants out of the paint, then polish and wax, and the car will look amazing. When I bought this Buick, it was glossy. But my first car wash revealed the paint was rough -- it had never been clayed.

68 Werewolf of London on Svengoolie tonight! The first werewolf movie, 6 years before the Lon Chaney vehicle The Wolf Man, it features some very neat werewolf makeup. The story we heard for years was that actor Henry Hull refused to accept the full-face makeup, essentially the same used on Chaney later, because it would conceal his face; you know, the usual story about vain actors.

The truth was that Hull (a stage actor) read the entire script, and saw that in a later scene, another character recognizes Hull's scientist as the wolf man. A full-face makeup would have made that impossible. Hull was just following the logic of the screenplay, not being a prima donna.

83 PDop is Poppadopolous or however you spell it.

For a while FBI was lying and said he's the reason we got FISA.

He pled to lying to FBI (apparently got a date wrong between two retellings) and got 14 days in prison

I think the guy got caught up in the bad business of the coup but apparently it didn't work out too badly for him because they sent a hawt Italian model after him and he married her.

Anyway, he's been parlaying that bit into an "I know things you people wouldn't believe" narrative.

Every moment is a hostility-laden ordeal, from the moment I leave my door until the moment I get back home. It's not that people are hostile to me; *I'm* the one who's hostile and resentful, all the time, because of the stupid mask requirement.

Our Shopper's Drug Marts are set up so you walk into the perfume section first, and a person is at a counter right there to cheerily say Hi to you. I always used to respond accordingly. Now I walk by in dead silence. I see her as an enforcer of this rule, and I don't think I have to be polite to the camp guards.

Our Shopper's Drug Marts are set up so you walk into the perfume section first, and a person is at a counter right there to cheerily say Hi to you. I always used to respond accordingly. Now I walk by in dead silence. I see her as an enforcer of this rule, and I don't think I have to be polite to the camp guards.

Exactly. When this nonsense started, I made sure to tell the grocery workers and the clerks at Dollar Tree that I appreciated their work. That was in the dim dead time of pre-masks. Now I have nothing left to say and I just want to get in and out without a confrontation.

"Camp guards" -- good way to put it.

I have a Merkur Futur that I like. Brushed aluminum. Very good heft and feel to it. A bit hard to get to the area beneath nose, but excellent. I think you were considering Merkur.

I did buy a Merkur Progress, the adjustable model, and it's excellent. This new one is an Italian make, the Fatip (pronounced Fa-TEEP), with the slant head that makes the blade more rigid and leads to a closer shave.

I don't need to worry about my nose or chin, as I wear a "Commander Riker" beard, and just shave around it and use a Wahl clipper to keep the lower edge sharp.

I don't know what brand you got. I use an old Gillette safety razor from 1952. Gives a great shave and even the better blades are relatively cheap. I've had a beard since 1972 so I just shave cheeks and neck. The blades last a long time.

Oh, my...this was me last weekend. Walked into the pet supply store because I had about a half hour before an appointment nearby. Mask triggered a hot flash, I was irritated, greeter greeted, I greeted back and started browsing. He persisted: "Do you have a cat or a dog?" I snapped back, "Can I just look around, please?! I'll let you know if I need something!"

He looked at me with an exaggerated "OK, lady" look. I should have apologized, but I didn't.

And nobody - NOBODY - including Durham and Nunes - had ever put it all together before and while nothing may have been happening before, now that Sundance has briefed people, something is happening and you should be optimistic that NOW there will be indictments.

Oh, and just in case there aren't, he has a Plan B, which is also secret.

This new one is an Italian make, a Fatip [Fa-TEEP) with a slant head. But I have several vintage Gillettes dating from 1938, the late '40s, '53, '56, and '62, and use them all the time. Vastly cheaper than the modern multi-blade things, and they give a closer and smoother shave.

True, it does take longer. I used an electric Norelco for many years. But the head$$$ have to be replaced periodically, and the result was not very close or smooth.

It's possible to take very little time shaving: A can of Barbasol foam, DE razor, one pass or maybe two, rinse and aftershave, done. Now and then I do it that way. But the bigger production is more fun for me.

172 > Years ago wild doing some genealogy work my Aunt was incensed when we asked for her marriage certificate. We all didn't wonder why.

There's a harmless chemical substance that some people can taste and others can't, based on genetics.

Years ago, there was a popular high school biology experiment to have the kids and their parents, grandparents, and other relatives see if they could taste it, then use that to infer the genetic relationship.

They don't do that one any more. Too many embarrassing results.

176 My mother died last Sunday evening at age 93. She had a UTI that turned into sepsis and spread to cause pneumonia. She also tested positive for Kung Flu, though the doctors emphasized that, if she was Covid-positive, the typical markers weren't showing up in her blood work and they were absolutely certain that Covid was not a contributing factor.

Guess what my appears on my mother's death certificate? Yep, Covid.

--

Michael the Texan, first off, sincere condolences to you on the loss of your mom.

Secondly, my uncle mirrors this same story. My uncle, who had just turned 93 over a week ago, died the next day in the hospital. He had countless, very serious health issues and we all knew it was only a matter of time. He was failing fast from COPD, kidney issues, heart issues. Well, whatdoyaknow, he tests positive at the very end for Covid. So now, he's a Covid death statistic, when it contributed very little to his actual passing.

George thought it stunk, and before returning to US gave it to a lawyer in Greece for safekeeping. Then when he came back he didn't declare anything and the FBI...including the execrable Clinesmith...were waiting for him. "What's the money, Lebowski, where's money shithead?" ensued. But George had outsmarted him. So they created a lying to FBI charge. Bet he wishes he didn't plead guilty. But still...George P outsmarting the FBI says a lot about the entire farcical operation Comey and McCabe were running against Trump. Fucking idiots.

Sundance is a smart guy and a very good researcher. He has dug up a lot of very important stuff that has contributed to understanding what really happened.

A while back he went down a rabbit hole of doom and gloom and started dragging everyone who wouldn't go with him. He now thinks there is an increasingly small chance that nothing will happen after months of saying nothing will happen and talking smack to anyone who disagreed. Once you cut through the BS that's all he is saying.

A reel mower is a great score. I wish my husband had saved his father's, but fortunately he did save the tools including the power tools. Kid 2 has some of those and is amazed by how grandpa's tools work better and are more powerful than the new stuff.

I've been thinking about this. Prisons are, as almost everyone knows, extremely segregated by race. The inmates group up by skin color and even sometimes subdivide within that (Sorrenos vs Nortenos), and relations between groups can go from benign neglect to outright low intensity warfare, depending on the circumstances.

Well Dennis said he had to ask about what happened to Roberts in his view. He said as a judge he had in Texas the exact case as the recent Mississippi case about abortion doctors, Roberts ruled in favor of Texas but was later shot down. Now Roberts changes his ruling 90 degrees. He thinks Roberts is really acting like a Politician ruling as public opinion goes. Personal cases where its really about one or very few he rules as a conservative, if it's a wide public case it gets the Leftist ruling.

Told them it's only fair because they did not have to pay out any claims in the entire State of Texas for those four months.


Pretty sure we won't see a penny.

On a good note, talked to the insurance lady about our general liability and we may see a refund from them. They are working out the details.

414 While the festivities were occurring in downtown Portland last night, a gang shootout occurred in a middle-class Portland neighborhood with more than 150(!) shots being fired. Only one person is known to be wounded, but eight apartments and seven cars were hit. This was apparently in retaliation for an earlier shootout at a memorial service elsewhere.

Remember, h8ers, Portland is absolutely serene and peaceful, if you ignore that shootings are up 400% over last year. Only Trump's minions are causing violence in Portland.

417 My mother died last Sunday evening at age 93. She
had a UTI that turned into sepsis and spread to cause pneumonia. She
also tested positive for Kung Flu, though the doctors emphasized that, if
she was Covid-positive, the typical markers weren't showing up in her
blood work and they were absolutely certain that Covid was not a
contributing factor.



Guess what my appears on my mother's death certificate? Yep, Covid.



Mom officially died of the Kung-Flu even though she had no symptoms
or biological markers. And now my wife and I are deemed to have probable
cases of Kung-Flu according to Texas and Collin County guidelines.

And no power on this earth will allow her death certificate to be modified or the reporting of her death as being caused by WuFlu to be retracted. All those tremendous numbers of wrongly reported positive tests in Florida? The CDC is flat out refusing to allow the state to retract those numbers.

422 Trump has taken his TV ads down, to "fine4 tune and reconfigure" them.

Just when it seemed to me Trump had turned the corner (for the better), too. He's at 50 JA in RAS, & Emerson today has the national race at Biden 50, Trump 46, which is a big improvement for Orange. Trump won with 46% & change in 2016.

The ad review is thought to be related to the recent replacement of Perscale (sp?) with Stepien. I worry Stepien is gonna go all GOPe respectable. Stepien had recently criticized the "tone" of Trump's beer virus comments-- before Stephen got promoted.

425 Michael the Texan, first off, sincere condolences to you on the loss of your mom.

Secondly, my uncle mirrors this same story. My uncle, who had just turned 93 over a week ago, died the next day in the hospital. He had countless, very serious health issues and we all knew it was only a matter of time. He was failing fast from COPD, kidney issues, heart issues. Well, whatdoyaknow, he tests positive at the very end for Covid. So now, he's a Covid death statistic, when it contributed very little to his actual passing.
