So We Beat On, An ONT Against The Current, Borne Back Ceaselessly Into The Past

Here's a pretty neat picture I found the other day of Eugene Stoner and Mikhail Kalashnikov.

“Cannabutter” is butter infused with cannabis. This dude's mom used his to make chicken and got the whole family high AF. There's a part 2 linked at the bottom of the page.


We Always Knew Government Was A Mickey Mouse Operation


RI mistakenly sent 176 tax refunds signed by ‘Mickey Mouse’ and ‘Walt Disney’

Refund checks from Walt Disney would be more fiscally sound than ones from the government. I'm jus' sayin'.


When Women Had Balls


That's Gladys Ingle, the only female member of the famous 13 Black Cats daredevil squad. Known as a fearless wing walker who never wore a parachute, she transferred from plane to plane in mid air hundreds of times. Believe it or not, she lived until 1981 when she died at age 82. What a woman!


What Is It With Girls From Calgary?


I mean, I met one online and managed to convince her I wasn't an asshole (it's been 18 years, nobody tell her!), but this, this is a whole other level of gullible.


'This is no joke': Calgary single mom warns others after getting scammed twice


First she fell for the “You've won a new truck but we need money to clear customs” scam, and then she fell in love with “Vin Diesel “ who, just before he was supposed to come meet her in person, suddenly “needed money to fix a critical piece of movie equipment” to save the film he was starring in.

**** PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT ****

Women of Calgary: Movie stars are not going to court you online! (Losers from The States, absolutely. We're thicker than flies on shit. Movie stars, no) Do not believe them! Do not send them money! Do not masturbate for them on the phone, even if Henry Rollins introduces you!* That is all!

*You'll have to ask Gingy for that story



Public Service Announcement, Part 2

How to spot a Communist:


Biden's Plan For Suburbia

CBD stole some of my thunder by linking this in yesterday's rant, so I held off on posting it until tonight.

Joe Biden’s disastrous plans for America’s suburbs

Bottom line: You can not have a successful Marxist state with a strong middle class, so the middle class must be destroyed. It really is that simple. And it isn't about race, either. Decades ago, I lived in a neighborhood that was rife with white section 8 housing. I couldn't wait to move away because I didn't like living there. The next door neighbor's “girlfriend” was a whore who sold herself to truckers under the interstate. She got him addicted to heroin, and when he went away to rehab she trashed his house. There was a drug house down the alley, trash in the streets and fights all around. I wanted better for my family. Through hard work and determination, I did it. I now live in a nice suburb. I have black, white and asian neighbors. It's a nice place to live. If you told me you were going to replace all of my minority neighbors with poor whites from my old neighborhood, I'd fight against it. Race doesn't have a goddamn thing to do with it.

I suspect this gal would agree with me:


Feel Good Clips

Fill-In-The-Blank “Justice”


Social Justice: The Presumption of Guilt


This is one thing that drives me nuts. You hear people talking about all kinds of “justice” these days. “Social” justice. “Racial” justice. “Critical” justice. Pick your poison. The thing is (and yes, I do realize that this is intentional), adding any type of adjective to the word justice completely inverts the meaning of the word. Justice can only be obtained for specific actions committed by individuals (or groups of individuals for actions undertaken jointly-actions committed by the individuals involved. If CBD, OM, and MisHum formed a gang and started killing people, you could bring them jointly to justice for their actions. You could NOT obtain any type of “justice” against The Moron Horde, or even against the COBS as a whole). Otherwise there is nothing just about it.

The top was down from Raleigh to Richmond VA and then it started to rain, so I pulled over underneath a bridge and put the top back up. When I got into PA the weather had cleared enough to put the top back down again. All in all a pretty enjoyable trip.

Background, so Governor says no mask is required then my mayor, a big up and coming lefty, said nope we're not listening masks are still required. And now my county, also run by a lefty, has just put into effect a law that you can't even be outside alone without a mask.


You must exercise alone with a mask. The only time any human being can be without a mask is if they have a medical condition or be a school student in a county sanctioned event. I don't even see an allowance for being in a car.

145 I am torn on the zoning issue. I live in Japan, and here there is very little zoning regulation. (mostly height and noise.) It is all mixed up and you can do whatever the f. you like with your property. Of course, this only works in Japan because they have a strong social structure and people respect their communities. This is only true because there is very low immigration.

So I see zoning restrictions as a bandaid on the real problem - crime, broken families, broken communities, and incompetent and corrupt government.

172 Stoner was a legit gun designer. Not a John Moses Browning, mind you, but legit. Kalashnikov, not so much. His gun, if it really was his, is a mish-mash of stg 44, M1 garand, and the safety from an old remington model 8.

That said, the russkies knew how to design a rifle cartridge. Look at the 7.62x54R, which is still in use in machineguns. Why? The case is tapered, which aids feeding and extraction, and it is rimmed, which also aids extraction, especially in a belt fed weapon

Likewise, the 7.62x39 and 5.45x39 cases are tapered, which again assists functioning. It doesn't add accuracy, but inch of bad guy is generally good enough.

185 Weirddave, your housing experience is very similar to mine. My previous home was in a neighborhood of well kept smallish homes, mostly blue collar people lived there. A welfare mom with 3 daughters got a house through some government program. This was not a woman who was working poor. She was, flat out, too lazy to work. Within a few years the house turned into a smelly dump. I'm not kidding. You could smell it when you walked by. She was kicked out.

It was sold to a handyman/contractor/realtor. He did a ton of work on it, and made it look like new. It was sold to a young family with one child. You know, a family where the parents work. Homes, especially older homes, need work right along. People who are dysfunctional are unlikely to keep them up.

Thank you. And I hate to pass on an opportunity to rant about the AK being a marxist commie gun. It was designed to be mass produced in a state factory and passed out to pheasants for purposes of revolution. It has (orignally) a lot of stampings which are best mass producted. It prioritizes low maintenance, low accuracy, low cost, and high reliability.

And once the state produces millions and pass them out and have a revolution, they start shipping them to neighbors. It is no coincidence that most shit-hole revolutionaries are armed with this WMD commie POS scourge on humanity.

195 So, Antifa handed the Democratic politicians in Oregon a victory by failing to show up at the Federal courthouse last night, as Oregon state police started assuming responsibility for keeping the courthouse secure. (Interesting that Antifa is so centrally directed, isn't it?)

The politicians triumphally announced that last night's lack of violence shows that all the prior violence is Trump's fault, and once the Feds are no longer visible, violence ceases.

Two problems with this continuing:

First, Antifa hates the cops - all cops.

As one Antifa Twitter account put it:

F*ck the Feds, f*ck the Oregon State pigs, and f*ck the PPB.
Portland won't give up until we abolish them all.


Second, Antifa knows that they won't get the huge crowds without rioting. Rioting is a low-risk way of feeling that you are a noble member of The Resistance, and get an exciting endorphin rush along with your friends. Just standing around listening to boring political lectures doesn't do that.

So, we'll see how long the peace lasts.

And a Portland Antifa supporter demonstrates his ignorance of environmental contamination, or basic chemistry:

What if a couple blocks of downtown Portland becomes sort of a no-go zone Chernobyl for a few decades because research shows that everything near the justice center is officially unsafe for living working or breathing after two months of chemical assault

These people are really full of themselves.

It floated there for a moment as I pondered whether to ignore it and drink up, get a fresh cup, or try and hook it out with a finger tip...

Then it sank to the bottom... I was tempted to ignore it and just not drink that last gulp, but then I wondered if the thing would stay at the bottom of the cup or dissolve...

I got a another cup!

It makes the rioters look bad, after all.

Only pro-Antifa "journalists" should be allowed to release video of the riots, after it has been suitably sanitized, of course.

A simple solution is for the police to simply embed some journalists behind their lines to independently record video. The cops don't control the footage, and they could argue that since journalists who aren't pro-Antifa are beaten at the riots, it is a way for non-Antifa journalists to be present that would be impossible otherwise.

221 I found out today there was a BLM protest in our little county a couple weeks ago. Word got out on Facebook they were headed to the Veterans Cemetery outside the county seat to tear down the flag and smash some headstones, then go to an older cemetery nearby and do the same to some Confederate graves. About a hundred or so local rednecks showed up to protect both places, and our sheriff tracked down the yahoos, gave them a ride out of there, and told them in no uncertain terms not to try it again.

And the best part was, the "marchers" turned out to be two black guys and three fat white women from two counties over. Figures.

223 Stoner was a legit gun designer. Not a John Moses Browning, mind you, but legit. Kalashnikov, not so much. His gun, if it really was his, is a mish-mash of stg 44, M1 garand, and the safety from an old remington model 8.

That said, the russkies knew how to design a rifle cartridge. Look at the 7.62x54R, which is still in use in machineguns. Why? The case is tapered, which aids feeding and extraction, and it is rimmed, which also aids extraction, especially in a belt fed weapon

Likewise, the 7.62x39 and 5.45x39 cases are tapered, which again assists functioning. It doesn't add accuracy, but inch of bad guy is generally good enough.

All true, and yet by the metric of fulfilling its designed purpose, it is undoubtedly the best gun in history. Beat it, burn it, bury it, run it over with a tank, and illiterate peasants can still use it to kill a lot of highly trained western soldiers.

So the ACLU gets to define who is and who isn't a "journalist".

Good thing then, that Texas' Attorney General Ken Paxton has issued a ruling that County and City Governments do NOT have blanket authority to close an Independent School District.

Mr. Paxton explained that the law creating such districts has actual teeth as to the INDEPENDENCE of said districts, from the political enclaves in which they function.

So, Little Miss Comandante can take her "edict", and meditate on it's similar phonic to "eat a dick."

Which might at least shut her the hell up for a moment, anyway.

Didn't Indiana used to have like 4 different time zones, depending on what city you were in (if any) and whether or not that part of the state observed DST?

Memory says that part of it was Eastern, observing DST (parts near cities in neighboring states on Eastern), parts on Eastern, not observing DST, parts on Central, observing DST, and parts on Central, not observing DST.

For most of the state is was moot, because corn doesn't give a shit what time the clock says.

Posted by: Al Unsure at July 31, 2020 10:39 PM (Jib4S)

In March, the CDC defined "case" as a person seriously ill, in the hospital.

At some time during this fiasco (and I don't remember exactly what Angelo Codavilla said), the CDC changed the definition to "positive test result."

As anyone with a brain knows, false positives are in the 40% range (Last I read). A positive test can be had if you had a little cold in the recent past, as admitted by the CDC.

All retests are counted as "new cases."

It is a scam all the way down, up, and sideways.

315 Early on, Japan was tracing each case of the china virus, probably better than any other country. They found that most cases were either from family, or from what they call a "live house." This is a club that plays live music - so not a bar, or a theater, but a dance club.

So young adults gathering and talking loud caused most of the cases in Japan. Turns out, young kids don't spread because they don't produce enough virus, and older people don't spread - it is they young adults and it spreads when they have to scream and talk loud or sing.

told me she was really, finally, worried for our country. She doesn't
watch any MSM and gets her information from talking to people in her
community. She said she was really worried because people were reaching
the tipping point. They have had just about enough of masks, black
lives, kneeling and looting. It wont take much more for them to say
f#$%k you all. And when they finally do this, nothing will be the same. I

It has nothing to do with GOP candidates..
It is just a given that you vote Democrat.
Even the very conservative policemen and firemen living in the outskirts of the city vote Dem. You just do.
It is the "machine". Each ward has precincts, and each precinct has precinct captains. Those captains make sure your garbage is picked up, and whatever other gripe you have is taken care of. They visit all houses door to door.
It is (or was, at least) a well oiled machine. I have not lived in the city for years, so it may have changed, but I doubt it.

406 ..Well, well. Story on the news about the 2019 Harding Street Raid. Two people were shot to death by Houston police in a no-knock raid on a warrant based on falsified information.

The dead pair were a white man and a white woman. Number of riots: zero.

Posted by: Hadrian the Seventh at July 31, 2020 11:19 PM (mht8P)



And their little dog, too.

No, not spoofing Oz.

The cops shot their dog in the raid, and killed it.

The cops also "seeded" the false intel with a neighbor, who just happened to be a bint with whom the Lead Cop on the raid had been adulterizing.

I'm pretty Pro-Cop, being a former one myself.

But this team was dirty, and had been dirty for a very, very long time. Something like 3,500 cases are being called back up and declared innocent, as any testimony from these officers is now about as discredited as Hillary's 2016 election chances.

I want to see them burn, and I want to see it be a very public spectacle when they do.

Posted by: Ladyl--now with fake mask! at July 31, 2020 11:19 PM (TdMsT)


Steinbeck is like what you would have to read if the commies took over. I read two of them, was bored out of my skull, and later had a shock of recognition when I had to read "Cement" for a Russian history class. It's a leaden classic of Commie propaganda, a horrible read. But reminiscent of Steinbeck.

Joseph Conrad is kinda awesome, though.

409 am I the only one who thinks that covid cases are increasing due to both increased testing AND a recent, massive volumetric importation of the virus by a truly evil person or group?
Posted by: Al Unsure

========

I don't think there's been a massive importation. I just think the numbers are utterly unreliable.

Posted by: Blonde Morticia



SARS-Cov-2 arrived in the US around November 1, 2019, 6 weeks before anyone in the US had even heard about it. The entire population was exposed in the 5 months up to March 2020 when we started testing. We are testing a yuge number of people daily now.

The infection rate is about 30% of exposed people. So if the entire population is tested we'll end up with 100M positive results. Which of course doesn't mean "cases" like they are telling us it means now. Just means antibodies, which means you had it and are over it.

Death rate is about the same as the seasonal flu. So by the end of the year they'll be claiming 500K dead from it because of all the utterly fraudulent reporting we are all aware of.

The actual number of deaths will be about 150K. All directly attributable to the ChiComs, who knew about it in March of 2019 and hid it until January 2020.

Fuck all Commies.

This isolation must be horrible for children wspecially if they don;t have siblings or single parent families where the parent has to work. There seems to be no compassion for poor children who do not have the tools or the structure to learn at home. What happened to the It Takes a Village busybodies who said we had to feed poor kids three meals a day and do after school day care because their home life was insufficient for a healthy life style.

I've had a theory about that for a long time, which I might try to work out if I were still in academia.

1) Every new communication technology leads to massive societal upheaval.
2) After a while people get used to the new comms, and it doesn't have the same effect.

Printing press? Reformation. Hundred Years' War. All that.
Telegraph? Revolutions of the mid-1800s.
Radio? Hitler. FDR. Churchill.
Television? JFK. The '60s in general.
Internet? Gaylord. Trump.

If an academic wants to take this and run with it, feel free. Just be sure to cite "Rodrigo Borgia on Ace of Spades HQ". Heh.

480 I hate "The Great Gatsby". My sophomore-year high school English teacher spent the entire semester on it, so I have never read "To Kill a Mockingbird", "The Catcher in the Rye", and a few other titles I forget.
Posted by: Chuck C at July 31, 2020 10:56 PM

I read "The Great Gatsby" as an adult and liked it.

I think most people who like "To Kill a Mockingbird" watched the movie and didn't read the book. There's a lot more in it.

I particularly liked a scene with a proto-Moron: an old white man who married a black woman and sits with blacks at public events. No one hassles him because he's drunk, but the protagonist finds out that he's drinking lemonade out of a sack. He just wants to have a good time with his friends and in-laws without being hassled by his "betters."

Tokarev, to gun nuts, for his pistol.

SKS owners *might* know the final "S" stands for Simonov.

Degtyarev is not known to most people. However, two months ago on range duty day a young Russian immigrant had a DP-28. He'd welded the receiver back together, and it was semi-auto of course. But he had the cool "pan" magazine on top (49 rounds).

The other Degtyarev item that would be cool to have/see, and I hear they exist and the ammo is even available, is one of the anti-tank rifles (PTRD).

Only things in the USSR with proper names, named after their designers or design bureau - aircraft, and small arms. Weird.

The ability to troubleshoot complex system problems.

A couple counties in Eastern Oregon went to level ONE again due to COVID.

Apparently they had 100% increases. I think that meant they went from 20 to 40.

Still no information on how this changed hospital bed availability. One of the Portland radio stations said that capacity was not a problem and was actually down.

Worst handgun jam I've personally seen, was a USAF S&W Model 15, .38 Special revolver.

The standard practice and qualifying round was the Winchester-Western 148 grain, hollow-base, full-wadcutter load. Normally, as high a quality of a factory round as existed in the mid 1970s market.

The Airman two lanes down from me fired off a shot, and *everyone* knew that something had gone amiss. It sounded more like a hissing fart than a gunfire report.

That revolver was locked up like a bank vault. Couldn't rotate the cylinder, cycle the action or swing-out the cylinder, at all.

Fortunately, the base's "Red Hat" contingent was there, (USAF Small Arms Specialists), and they quickly determined the cause.

The case itself had separated at the cannulure at the base of the bullet, and had traveled with the bullet, when fired, about halfway into the forcing cone.

That mess, too large in diameter and the nickel-plated brass being too strong to be swaged down the barrel, simply transformed that revolver into a 2 lb., unwieldly club.

The gun made it back to the Security Squadron Armory, along with the offending (failed) cartridge components.

They had to lock the gun into a vise with leather-padded jaws, and using a 1/4" diameter brass rod and light hammer, gently tap the logjam backwards, out of the forcing cone, and back into the cylinder.

Which they could then open as normal. But then they had to clamp the cylinder into the same vice, and use the same technique to eject the conjoined casing and slug, from the individual chamber, at long last.

No harm came to the gun. The pressures involved were too low for that.

But it goes to show.

Any gun can jam. Even a single shot.

But that's a different tale for a different time.

559 At the zoo (animal park branch) last year they had a serval as one of the cats for the curator's talk. If I'm keeping my obscure game cats straight, that's the one with the furry curly ears (they serve a purpose of course) that has a 10-foot vertical jump (kind of like Cuban Olympic volleyball team hitter).

They jump up to knock down birds flying over. Curator said that maximum # of birdies knocked down, documented, was 12 or something. Wild stuff.

In an incident historians and forensic experts are still examining, I had a squib load in one my earliest 38sp reloads (test rounds). Incredible, since ..... I examine each powder throw in every round of every caliber I reload, visually, to check for ballpark-correctness and avoid squibs. And test rounds - I weigh each charge, obviously to save time and know exactly what I'm shooting as I test various charges.

Lead bullet, half-way down the barrel, easily tapped out.

Although I was an Electronics guy, I was specifically sent to a destroyer, in the Persian Gulf, to run their boarding Team.

When I got there? WORST F'n 1911's I'd ever seen. M-14s were good, 12 Gauges were OK...

But the 1911 would rattle when you shook them.

Scared the holy living crap out of me.

Luckily, back then, you could, with permission, bring personal weapons aboard use them with the CO's permission, as long as you shot standard issued ammo.

Had a shoot on the fantail right after I got there, and pulled my personal wep out, and basically embarrassed the hell out of the Gunners mates in charge of the armory.

Sadly, they didn't really know any better. They didn't even know what a good weapon Felt like.

Within a year, me an the Senior Chief Gunners Mate onboard had solved that issue.

I've found that most times, when things suck, its because those in charge, don't even know HOW to make things better.

Or that its even possible. So they don't try.

Many of us have either fired, or been in close proximity when a squib load goes off at the range.

It's a different report, but still, usually, a distinct "gunshot", even if a more weak or subdued sound of one such.

This one I have never heard since, and the Red Hats could also not explain.

USAF Red Hats go to every Armorer School as exists, for every man-portable weapon in the USAF inventory at that point in time.

And many of them also go to the Big Boy Schools for the many crew served and aircraft-borne weapons, all the way to the mighty GAU-8 cannon of A-10 Warthog fame.

They know their guns and gear.

They were *right there* when this one happened, and none of them had an answer for what was wrong with that one cartridge out of a box of 50 and a case of 1,000.

And if *they* didn't have a clue? Sure as hell, I don't, either. Still don't, to this day.

Here's a couple of curious things about solving complicated problems.

In the old days, when you could drink and drive, I would regularly stop at a 7-11 just down from the office and buy a cold beer to drink while making the 40 minute drive home in traffic. At least several times, after struggling over some knotty, complex problem all day, the solution would occur to me while I was driving home.

Something about moving the problem to the middle of my mind, rather than staring at it in front of me. Less concentration/distraction with the problem, and more thought about...I don't know. I never turned around and went back to the lab, but it made for a great way to start the next day.

Next, solving technical problems while taking a shower. Sounds weird, but there it is. I've found myself sort of shocked back into consciousness by the water turning cold, realizing that I've been staring into middle space contemplating some complicated solution.

Sometimes it's inspirational. I must have plotted dozens of semi-imaginary graphs using the grout lines in the shower. A couple of really inspired solutions have happened that way. Again, I think it's a matter of been removed from the immediate confrontation with the problem, some latitude that occurs when the mind is not so focused.

But sometimes, no matte how we dig, there is no answer.

No powder in the casing. Only the primer cap fired.

That happened once to a friend of mine that reloaded his own ammo.

The cap fired, and moved the bullet a little down the bore, where it jammed, because there was no powder in the shell. But the cap firing was enough to move the bullet out of the casing and a little down the bore.
And probably, the casing was a little deformed and moved.
Probably somebody stole some good rounds, and substituted them with look-alike cheap reloads.

You have no idea how many times I have awoken, in the middle of the night, with the answer to a technical problem.

The Human mind is a pattern recognition engine. When you read a word, you don't really read the word, you recognize the pattern.

When you see a face? same... which is why sometimes you will think you see someone you recognize, who is not there... the pattern is close enough.

Our WHOLE brain works on this, conscious and SUBconscious. Which is why you get the Willies sometimes.

Why you walk into a bad neighborhood, or situation, and KNOW that something is wrong, even though your conscious mind does not recognize the problem.

Its your mind recognizing a pattern has been broken.

I realized this, early in my technical career.

And that you can use this, to solve technical problems.... using what nature gave us for survival as a tool to be a good Technician, to be able to figure out when the pattern, is not what it should be.

603 Romeo 13.

The USN Chief was (and I hope remains) unique among other services senior NCOs, in that he (in his natural element) commands a closed fiefdom, in small, defined compartments aboard a ship at sea.

On blue waters and far more independent from "Command" than is the norm for bases ashore, regardless of branch of Service.

Only a USMC "Gunny" wields similar sway and instant obedience, and pray that the Old Corps never dies, but renews again and again as time goes on.

An Army Command Sargent Major, alas, by time that rank is achieved tends to be subsumed into the Politics of the Brass, as often as not.

And a USAF Senior Master or Chief Master Sargent? (E-8/E-9). Yeah, they're mostly military Deep State, for all intents and purposes.

I grew up a Navy Brat in the '60s/'70s. Westpac kid, when crew was crew, men were men and seabags reeked of diesel, cigarette smoke and stench of Dad at sea.

Enlisted in the A.F. as the Navy did not then offer a Master at Arms rating, and the A.F. had spun-off "Law Enforcement Specialist" from the usual, soul-killing, rivet counting duty of "Security Specialist".

Boy howdy, did I soon learn that the A.F. in the Carter years was a bureaucracy subsisting by imitating a Military Service.

Even their active flight Bases and Commands were decayed in those days by the bureaucratic rot.

The first Gulf War re-awakened the Warrior Spirit in many USAF layers of command. The 2nd Gulf War demonstrated the need to teach even rudimentary fighting skills to the greenest of boots.

I'm told now, it's back to the bureaucratic ways and days as relates to the non-rated, non-flying ranks.

*sigh*

And they'll pay the price in blood, again, when real Military performance is required from the cook and clerk typist, in a pinch.

617 A corollary. A poor craftsman always blames his tools.
Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at August 01, 2020 12:18 AM (1vynn)

I got the engine back into the poor wretched Panhard today. But it took me all day, because I decided to do something about the transaxle mounts, or really, the lack thereof. There was, effectively, one transaxle mount, a little dogbone-shaped link between the bottom of the spacer ring between the engine and the transaxle. It certainly couldn't bear weight. maybe it could limit rotation of the engine/transaxle assembly in the frame, to some extent.

The transaxle lives inside a sort of tapered box attached to the front subframe, with the axles poking through holes is the sides of the box. Towards the rear of the box, there is a large round hole, and there is a threaded bracket on the transaxle centered above that hole. Some previous genius had attached a piece of 1"by 2" steel channel section to that bracket, and the ends of that channel were bolted to brackets on the exhaust pipes.

So... I found an old rubber biscuit mount off a plate compacter, and it had 12X1.5 mm threaded holes in each side, which matched the thread on the transaxle bracket. And it was just small enough to fit through the large hole in the box member. So I cut the ends off the piece of steel channel, and drilled clearance holes for 3/8" bolts, and bolted the center hole on the channel to the bottom of the biscuit mount. I then drilled through the clearance holes on the channel up into the box member with more 3/8" holes. Turned out that I needed about 1" spacers between the bottom of the box and the channel to get the transaxle vertically centered between hitting something at the top, or hitting something at the bottom.

At the front of the transaxle, there already was pair of "ears" on the casting at about 4:00 and 8:00, complete with holes, that looked like they were intended rest on rubber mounts. Maybe for a previous version of the car? The little tie-rod thingy attached to a steel bar spanning the opening at the bottom of the frame box, and was held by two stacked rubber-biscuit mounts with through bolts and sleeves (not unlike the motor mounts on many '50's American cars). The holes for these did not align with the holes on the brackets built into the transaxle case. The rubber biscuits had been pretty well destroyed by leaked oil.

So, I took my reciprocating saw, and cut away the sections of metal containing those holes. Then I took a pair of decent used Studebaker engine mount biscuits, and cut a flat on one side of each for clearance to the sides of the box, and bolted them to the brackets on the transaxle. I then cut short pieces of 2" by 2" steel angle, and drilled holes, and bolted them to the studs on the bottom of those biscuits (which are bonded units, studs top and bottom).

Then I raised the front of the transaxle to my best estimate of its proper location, and welded the piece of steel angle to the fresh saw cuts on the frame box, and also welded in a reinforcement strap to prevent the load from hingeing on the welds. So I wound up with the transaxle in approximately its proper orientation, and secured to the frame with three stout bonded-rubber cushions.

Then, I removed the bumper and front frame outrigger from the engine, because they would get in the way, and slipped the engine into the transaxle. Everything went together pretty easily, and I ran up the nuts on all six studs and tightened them. The engine is now, at the moment, entirely supported by the transaxle and its three rubber mounts, which is exactly how VW Beetles do it, albeit in the rear. And it is solid. Very little up/down movement, next to no rotation about its axis, and a little side-to-side sway. When I install the bumper with the front engine mounts, which are bolted to the exhaust pipes (!), that side play should disappear.

I am really pleased with how it looks, and I expect it will drive a whole lot better, with less floptivity of the power train. The torque will go to the road wheels, instead of tossing the engine around.

Another day's work, and a road test should be possible.

I grew up about 1.5 miles from a SAC base. B-52s, KC-135s, and F-105s for awhile.

This was during Viet Nam. It was normal for my friends Dads to be deployed, and bombing Viet Nam.

I moved back to that town a few years ago to take care of my Mom.

One neighbor? was a B-52 Navigator. Known him for ... damn... I'm old... 50 years.

Three doors down is a Retired AF E-9, who is even crustier than I am (yes, we get along well).

Back when I was growing up, thinking on it, the ONLY non AF family on our Block, was us. (Dad had been Navy).

Had a neighbor whose Son's I am still friends with, who crashed an SR-71. Ended all his flight time, though not his career.

Like the Navy, I still hold out hope for the Air Force.

620 It's healthy for motorcyclists to assume that car drivers are trying to kill you.

I started riding at 14 and was fortunate enough to run across a great little booklet called "Safe Motorcycling." IIRC, the guys at Motorcycle magazine put it out. It had great tips like never being in gear at a stoplight just in case your clutch cable fails and you get launched into the stream of traffic.


The best piece of advice in it was, "Always ride as though you're invisible." That saved my young ass from getting killed more than once.

The "Motto" on the front of the Air Force Seal proclaims "To Fly and to Fight".

They never turn that Seal around to the obverse side, where it says: "If You Don't Fly, You Ain't Shit"

That's the problem with the USAF. ANY one on Flight Status will be in the Upper Tier, with Pilots atop them all. Backseaters, Navigators, Tactical Officers (as in AWACS), just below.

Then Medevan Dr.s and RNs, Loadmasters, and Crew Chiefs.

More or less, that's the flying cadre, all in all, just under 2% of USAF ratings.

Everyone else is "support", and is reminded of such, constantly.

Conversely? USN Carrier with 5,500 aboard.

Regardless of Seaman Recruit swabbing the bilge, or Airedale or Bridge Officer, every swingin' dick on that ship is a SAILOR, and they all sink or swim if the ship goes down.

That lends a certain cohesion, and esprit de corps, of which the USAF has still yet to discover.

I'd send them my ideas, but again, I'm not a $250,000/yr consultant assigned over from Raytheon or such.

639 Here's one for the Hordelings on this Friday night.

My wife has never enjoyed watching things (movies/tv) more than one time. Twice at absolute max. I think repeat watching tends to be a guy thing anyway but I'm generalizing because I know some women do like it.

Anyway, over the years she has come to see the value in it. We have a few things now we have watched together multiples of times. I'm talking up into the 20's probably.

Here's my question. Why do you think it is that on each repeat viewing, more often than not we both observe the same exact things for the first time. Like if I point something out she'll say she had just noticed it, too, and vice versa. Things never seen before but only seen on that viewing. I mean the most minuscule of details, or oddest perspective on something that you might not imagine one person seeing, let alone two at the same time.

There's several possibilities, some more "rational" than others. I have my own theory on this but I want to know what you all think. Also I'm wondering if you have experienced this phenomenon with your SO.

FWIW, they are rubber/metal bonded units. Roughly 2" in diameter, and 1.5" thick, metal disc top and bottom with a 3/8" NF stud in the center of each disc. Volvo used similar mounts, with slightly different dimensions, and so did early Mazda RX-7's.

Being metal vulcanized to rubber, they are subject to peeling apart if overloaded in tension.

A woodruff key? Those are semicircular, and fit into a semicircular slot on the shaft, and a straight keyway cut into the hole of the mating part.

If I were faced with that problem, I would get some Briggs and Stratton flywheel keys, part number 61760 (really), and use a Dremel tool to make the keyway on the shaft, and a file to make the keyway on the flywheel.

I know that part number (it might have been superseded) because I replaced about a thousand of them when I worked for my Dad. People would hit an immovable object with the blade of their rotary mower, and the blade and crankshaft would stop, but the flywheel wouldn't. Result: sheared key, which cost fifty cents. Tecumseh used steel keys in their flywheels, and when those mowers hit an immovable object, the flywheel would split at the keyway.

I tried to get his doctor on the case, but that was useless. I wrote a letter to him detailing the behavior and symptoms and the son of a bitch didn't even read it. And thinks nothing serious is wrong.

To see him, yesterday, it had to be a "virtual visit", via webcam. To do that, I had to enable the camera and microphone on a laptop, get it working, etc. All for nothing.

In the process of setting it up, I got to look at myself on camera. It was horrible. If I look as ugly and dumb as that, then I'm just going out in the woods and find a hollow, and just live there. Pull up some dirt and leaves and just wallow. That's where anything like ugly and frightful looking belongs.

I look at myself in the mirror, and it's not that bad. So the question is, which is the reality.... If it's the camera version, then off to the woods I go. ROFL.

683 If I were faced with that problem, I would get some Briggs and Stratton flywheel keys, part number 61760 (really), and use a Dremel tool to make the keyway on the shaft, and a file to make the keyway on the flywheel.
-------

Reasonable, but several things: It's a small tapered shaft, the existing keyway is 3mm wide. To use an English measure key, it would require that the key slot width, diameter, length, and height would all have to be altered. Easier to turn a disk to size, and cut for length and height.

I will file a slot in the flywheel, but because of the taper and necessity for maintaining alignment with axis, as well as width, I just made up a couple of plates that bolt on either side of the wheel, with milled guide slots to maintain taper and depth.

Second, get further back because if you are too close you see your nose first, and the chin because you are going from below.

then of course, you look shifty on the camera because you never look at the lens because you are looking at the screen which is showing you the wonderful view up your giant nostrils. . . . While you are cussing under your breath, so you look shifty and pissed.

Relax though. People you know don't look so much at you as register and put who they know on the image.

Well, it's (was) just a land in the bore of the flywheel, part of the casting. I am assuming that it actually was a straight land that slid into the keyway cut in the tapered shaft. The key cut in the shaft , though semi-circular is such that the 'key' engaged the cut as the tapered bore of the flywheel was shoved on.

Obviously, a cost-saving measure, that was a bad idea. At any rate, the primary purpose is to index the magneto, rather than secure the flywheel, so, as long as everything lines up, and I torque the bejeebers out of the nut, then should be okay. A biker friend gave me a little bottle of Henkel locking compound recommended for locking tapers.

757 Speaking of shear pins, keys, etc.....

... a sergeant came down the ranks checking our harness, static lines, and break cords, he stopped for some time in front of the new first sergeant, looked hard at him, and asked, "Don't your men like you?"

"I don't care what they don't like," he answered. "Why?"

"Because someone wrapped bailing wire from your static line to your canopy instead of silk for a break cord; you had better draw another chute from the packing bins."

Posted by: AmericanKestrel at August 01, 2020 01:31 AM (IDhUW)

Yes! That is definitely one of the theories.

Other possible theories:

* We share a similar intellect that would tend to notice things in a certain "order".

* Selection/confirmation bias. We don't notice when we're not noticing the same stuff, and then when we do, it seems like this huge coincidence. Due to the insanity and number of these observations, this is by far the least likely in my opinion, but a certain type of person will enjoy it.

* My working theory: I believe people operate on a certain frequency (for lack of a much better term, which people in 300 years will know offhand). It's why you can talk to some people for hours and not get bored, and why you so easily "clash" with other people, and they clash with you. And why yet many others can hold absolutely no interest for you at all.

This frequency is not the end-all of human interaction, it is just one factor. Otherwise all your close friends would always love each other, too. Theory is I and wifey essentially share space on this particular plane of understanding, and on these "frequencies", there is unseen information constantly floating by for people to pick up on. Stuff we just do not comprehend about our makeup and the world yet. Stuff we can't "purposely" grab and hold. Because of this, we are literally observing the same exact slice of reality at certain times and it causes weird shit like this.

Sounds crazy, sure. But then, if you didn't have a radio or appropriate device, how could you *prove* to someone unfamiliar with the world that there were all these broadcasts going on in the air that could be "picked up", and on it people would be talking and music would be playing? Tinfoil jokes aside - this is only an analogy - but it should help make my point.

The news blackout of this, which seems to be pretty complete from what I'm seeing from observers, is a pretty good preview of what we'll see if Durham actually delivers some indictments.

Why does anyone think that merely the greatest politically-related crimes in US history, a series of de facto coup and sabotage attempts against the legitimate;y elected president, will be other than mostly ignored by the "press"?

"Oh, they couldn't, they wouldn't dare".

Really?

Very easy to see: downplayed 48 hours of coverage, suffused with "political witch-hunt!!!" idiocy, from both "journalists" and Dems. Followed by ...... whatever.

And of course this will be the less appalling and outrageous thing.

The top one will be that the entire national level Dem party will be utterly indifferent to these historic (using the word properly for once) corruptions of our institutions. And their voters? Probably 75% won't care either.

I share your concerns. I think the indictments would need to be rapidly processed, and sentences given. The media is a large contingent of the enemy and other than also being indicted ans sentenced should not even be part of the equation.

The wild duck's flight
And the white owl's wings;
To pike and salmon,
To bull and horse,
The curlew's cry
And the smell of gorse.

Swiftness of streams,
Magic of frost
Have shaped our dreams:
No baser vision
Their spirit fills
Who walk by right

South Park is true satire: in that it attacks all views and held opinions without question.

Satire is supposed to be wild and ridiculous. In an earlier age, read 3 years ago, we'd just laugh. But here we are.

Cartman is the obnoxious fat kid. The impetus of many episodes and the driven force of all things clown-like.

Kenny is the muted gimmick that is the perpetual butt of awful accidents. It's just a gimmick that gets discarded.

Kyle and Stan are the protagonistic heroes in the whole shebang. They argue but ultimately one of them is just earnestly correct at the end of the show, like an 80's morality play.

All any of us has is God's Mercy. I think legal abortion, human trafficking, and miscarriage of justice is so overwhelming evil, that I wouldn't mind being attrition to put an end to it.

823 Seeing the video above of the little kid helping out the garbage men reminds me of me.

Until about 10 yo, I wanted to be a garbage man or a pastor.

I figured you only had to work one day a week.
I was thinking lazy even back then

Now I hear garbage man or pastor and think you're someone who wants to clean things up.

829 Channeling my inner Steven Wright.....

I was scanning employees coming through the back entrance of our office building this afternoon in Los Angeles.

At on point, I inadvertently pointed the scanner out the door and pulled the trigger....

It read 102 degrees....

I had to quarantine the entire employee parking lot...

we are still here.....but no one will talk to me now........

830 It's most likely China knew about Covid-19 and purposely loosed it upon the world.

They absolutely did. They shut down internal travel but let those planes keep flying to the US and Europe.

The Yellow Lung AIDS might not have been manufactured and manipulated in a lab specifically as a biological weapon of war, but they 100% treated it as such after they knew what was happening.

834 Love the old biplanes, largely because my grandfather flew a Spad in WWI. I've got the squadron insignia from his plane. Only one Iron Cross, though he always said he got two, but didn't get credit for the other. (He never mentioned whether that involved meeting Ursula Andress.)

I also have a sort of book he started to write. Full of problematic language.

The temperature scanning is one of my favorite parts of this whole thing. It's just another silly pacifier/rabbit's foot. Nature:


"In one recent study, researchers found that only one individual out of 147 who tested positive in a homeless shelter in Boston, Massachusetts, would have met the official criterion for testing - a fever"

https://tinyurl.com/y7nx3rzz

And, like the mask mandate because apparently the majority of people are too stupid to not sneeze or cough directly onto other people's faces, someone with a fever is aware of it but apparently too stupid to understand what it is or that they shouldn't be hanging out with other people.

But yes, everyone should be allowed to vote.

838 Now is a good time for all to re-read the Patriot series by James Wesley, Rawles. Might as well throw in the old classic Lucifer's Hammer by Larry Niven and Dr. Jerry Pournelle, too. Also One Second After by William S. Forstchen is good. And of course TWD, the how-to for the future, is expected to return to teevee this month. Remember it's never the event, it's always our reaction to the event.

Unless sainted by leftist media liars, political hacks and America hatters

then your allowed weeks of services and rioting (peacefully of course)

The dead pair were a white man and a white woman. Number of riots: zero.


Seems like an even bigger story since the cops actually faked the case for the warrant entirely.
