The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

Being told that any disagreement or feelings of discomfort somehow upholds “white supremacy” is not just morally wrong. It is psychologically abusive. Jodi Shaw, Whistleblower at Smith College


Quote II

"He said he thought it'd be fun to drive on the ice. But then he thought it was a parking lot,” Allegheny County Police Lieutenant Scott Scherer


Quote III

GOP candidates did very well in the House races. And we know a bunch more Republican senators would have voted to convict President Trump if they had not been so terrified of our wrath. This is good – we want Republican officials in a permanent state of terror over our wrath. Kurt Schlichter


Quote IV

“The Whitmer for Governor campaign has always worked closely with union- and Michigan-based printers, and will continue to do so in the future,” Gov. Karen Whitmer's campaign spokesman Christopher Mills

OK, I'll admit it, I'm not a big movie guy. Most motion pictures aren't worth my time and/or money. Don't tell that to Martin Scorsese - Il Maestro - By Martin Scorsese Federico Fellini and the lost magic of cinema

Flash forward to the present day, as the art of cinema is being systematically devalued, sidelined, demeaned, and reduced to its lowest common denominator, “content.”

As recently as fifteen years ago, the term “content” was heard only when people were discussing the cinema on a serious level, and it was contrasted with and measured against “form.” Then, gradually, it was used more and more by the people who took over media companies, most of whom knew nothing about the history of the art form, or even cared enough to think that they should. “Content” became a business term for all moving images: a David Lean movie, a cat video, a Super Bowl commercial, a superhero sequel, a series episode. It was linked, of course, not to the theatrical experience but to home viewing, on the streaming platforms that have come to overtake the moviegoing experience, just as Amazon overtook physical stores. On the one hand, this has been good for filmmakers, myself included. On the other hand, it has created a situation in which everything is presented to the viewer on a level playing field, which sounds democratic but isn’t. If further viewing is “suggested” by algorithms based on what you’ve already seen, and the suggestions are based only on subject matter or genre, then what does that do to the art of cinema?

More evidence that former House Speaker and failed VP Candidate Paul Ryan is a Washington D.C. Swamp critter and a bottom feeding piece of trash.

On the opposite political end lay former House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Executive Network Partnering Corporation, launched last August. Reports humorously noted that Ryan and his partner, Solamere Capital founder Alex Dunn, had “not selected a target industry” for their SPAC, which essentially meant they were asking for $300 million without knowing what for yet. The SEC filing for ENPC was inspired vagueness:

We have not selected any company to partner with and we have not, nor has anyone on our behalf, engaged in any substantive discussions, directly or indirectly, with any company to partner with regarding a partnering transaction. We may pursue a partnering transaction with any company in any industry.

If you invest in a SPAC, your money goes in an interest-bearing account that can only be used to acquire properties or be returned to you, should the SPAC management team (called “sponsors” fail to acquire properties in the allotted time, usually 18 to 24 months. Sponsors are paid in “founder shares,” bought at a discount and usually amounting to 20% of the common stock of the future company, a nice relatively risk-free chunk of change framed as the sponsors’ reward for not paying themselves exorbitant salaries during the brief shopping period.

Oooops!!! Someone has some 'splaing to do.


Software bugs reportedly keep Arizona inmates jailed past release dates

State law was updated in 2019, but the state's software suite still hasn't been.

A failure to update critical prison management software has kept hundreds of incarcerated people in Arizona behind bars longer than they should be, according to a whistleblower report.

Employees for the Arizona Department of Corrections have known about the bug since 2019, Phoenix-based NPR affiliate KJZZ reported. The flaw follows a change to state law that the software simply cannot handle and has not been updated to deal with.

Reason Numero Uno for not ordering food online. Contamination or worse.

A customer has told of his surprise after he received a full bottle of urine as part of a food delivery during lockdown.

Oliver McManus said he received the suspicious-looking yellow liquid with a meal kit from HelloFresh on Sunday morning.

He tweeted the company a picture with the question: "Hey HelloFreshUK, I'll keep it simple: why have I received someone's bottled up piss as part of my order? Look forward to your response on this one."

Mr McManus added: "Give me an address, I'll send it to you and you can have a whiff in case you're sceptical!"

How much money do you save if you cook at home? Scientific answer: A Shit Ton!

Intuitively, we all know there are benefits to cooking at home. You can use healthier ingredients, set portions to a reasonable size, avoid food allergies, and of course you can save money compared to ordering restaurant delivery or using a meal kit service.

But just how much money do you save by cooking at home? We decided to analyze our recipe data to find out the true cost of cooking at home from scratch, compared to delivery from a restaurant or a meal kit service.

We analyzed data from Priceonomics customer wellio, a platform that breaks down millions of recipes into single ingredients and matching those to grocery items from local stores. That allows us to measure the ingredient cost for a wide variety of recipes. For 86 popular dinner recipes, we decided to look at the average cost per serving of cooking from scratch and compare it to the cost per serving of ordering from a restaurant or a meal kit delivery service.

We found on average, it is almost five times more expensive to order delivery from a restaurant than it is to cook at home. And if you’re using a meal kit service as a shortcut to a home cooked meal, it’s a bit more affordable, but still almost three times as expensive as cooking from scratch.

When cooking at home, you'll save a substantial amount of money on carb-based meals like pasta or pizza, and you'll save the most on protein-based meals when compared to ordering from a restaurant or meal kits.

The push for renewable energy is fraught with idiocy. The Law of Unintended Consequences once again rears its ugly head.

Researchers imagine it might be possible to transform the world’s largest desert, the Sahara, into a giant solar farm, capable of meeting four times the world’s current energy demand. Blueprints have been drawn up for projects in Tunisia and Morocco that would supply electricity for millions of households in Europe.

While the black surfaces of solar panels absorb most of the sunlight that reaches them, only a fraction (around 15%) of that incoming energy gets converted to electricity. The rest is returned to the environment as heat. The panels are usually much darker than the ground they cover, so a vast expanse of solar cells will absorb a lot of additional energy and emit it as heat, affecting the climate.

If these effects were only local, they might not matter in a sparsely populated and barren desert. But the scale of the installations that would be needed to make a dent in the world’s fossil energy demand would be vast, covering thousands of square kilometers. Heat re-emitted from an area this size will be redistributed by the flow of air in the atmosphere, having regional and even global effects on the climate.

So you don't believe snow is real? Come on up and visit us and I'll convert your sorry ass you.

Have you seen those viral videos on TikTok and Twitter where users are burning snow to “prove” that it’s actually fake? Needless to say, the snow is real. The viral videos actually show a perfectly normal reaction to placing the flame of a lighter or match against a snowball. But that hasn’t stopped these videos from racking up millions of views.

Who’s creating this “fake” snow that’s falling from the sky all around the world, according to the conspiracy theorists? Bill Gates, of course, the evil puppetmaster behind so many of the world’s ills right now—from the covid-19 pandemic to secret tracking chips inside all of the world’s coronavirus vaccines.

Yes, conspiracy theorists with smartphones are really worried about being constantly tracked through their... vaccines. And it’s not just Bill Gates. Some people believe China is in on the whole conspiracy, sending fake snow to the U.S. in an effort to convince Americans climate change is real. China may have even done this to make Ted Cruz look bad, according to some conspiracy theorists.

92 years young and still a stud. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

It was just three degrees outside when 92-year-old Bella Vista resident Leroy Kostka began shoveling snow in Jen Sheridan's driveway.

"Everyone should have a 92-year-old neighbor-hero who brings a snow shovel and shovels your driveway and front porch off," Sheridan wrote in Facebook post.

Leroy, a World War II Air Force veteran, married the love of his life, while serving in Germany. After the war, Anni and Leroy returned to the states, and eventually retired in Bella Vista.

"They've been here nearly 30 years," said Sheridan. "The entire neighborhood loves them dearly, from 20-somethings to 80-year-old widows."

"I love this man," one user commented.

"What a stud," wrote another.

Sheridan added thet Leroy often comes by to play with her dog, Maggie. She says Leroy and Anni are a local treasure.

All these pics of mountain ranges, Mountain prairies, Mountain lakes and streams.

Ah well if I was younger. For some reason I wandered all over the US but never spent any time in the mountains of the west.

I shoulda and woulda but for some reason never got to the point of haveta. I thought for a long time about trying to buy land in Idaho and Montana.

Good luck to you and Hadrian. I only had a burst outside faucet that I was able to remove and replace. One thing I learned if we ever get a forecast for temps below 20 degrees for more than 5 hours is I will turn off my water and drain all the pipes in preparation.

I've got a live trap in there with some peanut butter. It's tripped it two or three times and managed not to get caught, somehow. I've put a heavy whetstone on the door so maybe it'll latch next time before it can escape.

I can't watch what it's doing because if I don't leave the cardboard up in front of the fireplace, the cats will push their dumb faces against the glass and the squirrel will be too scared to try the trap. It's not in any danger from the cats, mind. Even if they were right there with it. They aren't very good at Cat.

159 Is it really a surprise that it is more expensive to have someone else prepare and cook food for you then it is to do it yourself?
I always thought that was the idea? That someone else would deal with the work so you didn't have to. And perhaps use expertise/tools they have that you don't.

No different really then any other services one might pay others to do for you right?

177 I've been wondering of late if the collapse of communism necessarily lead to where we are today.
As a western political leader in the 80s and before, if you failed large enough not only would your country pay the price, you would to - just like the political leadership of Eastern Europe had in 39 or 45 (depending on which side they picked).
Absent that real fear of failure, the elite in the West have spent their time since the cold war making money, from us, and getting their jollies off by making us kneel to whatever new stupidity they could think of.

241 I watched Avengers Endgame again and noticed why the movie worked so much better then its sequel.
Most superhero type movies are classic "the hero's journey" type stories and Endgame was opposite "the villain's journey" if you will.
So it was something...different. Which Hollywood can't do any more.

And then they undid it in the sequel, of course.

246 I got blood wings pinned on me at airborne school. I was not about to be the first guy in my stick to decline (I would have happily been the 2nd; I was not inclined to be punched in the chest to pin them). The first guy was this scrawny dude - he was excited to get blood wings. He took that punch hard and smiled like a champ, blood pouring down his BDU tunic. I got hit twice, the first time in the shoulder. Second time right in the wings. Bam. Pulled them out of my pec. No blood. All that drama for nothing.

I shopped at Meijer a time or two when I was going to college in downstate IL. Not a terrible store--kind of like Walmart with better furniture--but it in the part of the shopping district that wasn't close to the bus route and nothing they offered was really worth it versus just shopping at Wally World, which had direct bus service.

Hey, darling'! We are doing fine - temps are back up to normal. Unfortunately, we have to bring in water from the neighbor's house, so the toilets aren't getting flushed very often.

We also are trying to keep toilet paper out of the toilet to keep it from clogging when it does get flushed, so all of our bathrooms smell like a baby diaper pail....

Things could be worse, though - we are just laughing about it and muddling through!

How are you, sweetie?

A big part of teaching is having to deal with 20 or more kids in the classroom. With distance learning the teachers avoid most of the hassle of misbehaving kids in the same room with them. Distance learning has got to be heaven for teachers.

Take a look at the guide. It took downloading 689 mods, and then using about 10 separate programs to install, sort, clean, merge, and create dynamic LOD (limited object detail) files, so everything looks astounding all the way to the horizon. Literally every texture in the game made way better, plus a million added goodies, too many to list. Its a whole different game now. It was like putting together a very complex model airplane.

Here's the guide I followed, but only one of many I read in the process. Like I said, very daunting, but great fun.

394 "We knew from day one this wasn't going to work," a source in the Department of Corrections told KJZZ. "When they approved that bill, we looked at it and said "Oh, shit.'"

(No comment on whether their law is a good or bad idea)

You have a database, right? So you query the database to see who may be eligible (convicted of one of the four listed crimes, not convicted of any of the dis-qualifying crimes). Then of the eligible list, you check their enrollment status. If they haven't enrolled, send them a letter and send their lawyer and case worker a letter. If they have enrolled, check if they have completed the program. If they have completed the program, then read the fucking law and count the days they have served, divide by seven and multiply by three. This is the number of days credited. Add that to the days served and check it against the number of days their sentence is. If the total exceeds the number of days of the sentence, bid them farewell and give them a bus ticket. You can figure this out with about four lines of SQL.

My wife's grandparents had a bakery/ candy shop in Baltimore. But something happened to her mother. She had no interest in the shop or anything else for that matter.She was the most unhappiest Jew I have ever met. She has 2 daughters . One that was kinda homely and my wife, who is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. She lived vicariously through my wife. But eventually , my wife told her to fuck off and she didn't particularly like Jewish boys

496 We found on average, it is almost five times more expensive to order delivery from a restaurant than it is to cook at home. And if you're using a meal kit service as a shortcut to a home cooked meal, it's a bit more affordable, but still almost three times as expensive as cooking from scratch.

*shocked face, not really*

It was a rule of thumb back in the 50s that restaurants spend about 28-29% of their total expense on food ingredients. I suspect that % hasn't changed much in 70 years.

As the article tends to suggest as well.

Pretty soon, cooking at home will be banned. Too dangerous and bad for the environment. It's for your own good, comrades. You little people just don't know how to do things for yourselves. Your betters will provide your food and in the proper, responsible way.

went first thing in the AM, and being Lost Angels, i left the house early and got there in time to eat breakfast @ Lenny's. drank more than a few cups of their weak ass coffee, with cream and sugar.

went in, laid down, got shoved into the tube, and promptly fell asleep. my sub conscious interpreted the semi-hard narrow tray, and the intermittent noise as being in a track just off the firing line at a machine gun range, and, like any good grunt or Cav trooper, i copped some Z's.

they had to wake me up when they pulled me out, and also said i was the first! patient they ever had that snored through an MRI. they were amazed and wonderous. i laughed.

its just breathtaking that that got done in 11 months from when we first knew about this virus. Its at least five years faster than its ever been done before.

613 he New York-based airline on Tuesday said starting July 20 it will guarantee overhead bin space for its standard coach fares up to its Mint business class. But travelers who booked Blue Basic, the airlines cheapest option, wont be allowed to use overhead bin space, a policy United Airlines put in place when it started selling no-frills basic economy tickets in 2017.

Oh yeah? How are they gonna enforce that one? Should make for some juicy on board fights

Yes, but peace is not what they are after with the "two state" solution.

They seek Israel's destruction/diminishment and opportunities for graft.

They don't care about peace.

Trump cared about actually making peace in the ME, which is why he cut the Pali's out of any peace deals, and once everyone else was signed on, the sheer weight would have, under their outside the box and correct thinking, pulled the Pali's in.

Now it's back to the same bullhsit that has been a proven failure for going on 50 years.

After leading people on with magical stories of 3D chess and "clandestine operations", they blame the people who read their shit, sent money, sent them to CPAC. It was inevitable, they were always just con artists, and why people pay for this bullshit is beyond me.
