The ONT Has Always Been At War With The EMT

Good evening Horde, how's the world treating you? The mask “mandate” ended yesterday (although many people, myself included, have been ignoring it for months now). What's new in your part of the world?

covid venn.jpg

Speaking Of Masks


Woman uses thong as mask to do grocery shopping


Not stated in the headline: She took her panties off in the middle of the store and put them on as a “mask” to comply. There's video at the link, complete with a Karen heckling her. Such is the power of groupthink. Speaking of groupthink......

How The Sausage Is Made

Let me show you the worst headline I've seen in a long time:

Dog Thrilled To See Owners At Shelter But They're There To Adopt Different Dog


Did that headline make you mad? It made me mad. Anytime this is posted on social media, the opprobrium is of epic proportions. And why not? There's video (you can see it at the link) of the dog, named after the little girl in It's A Wonderful Life, if you can believe it, excitedly wagging her tail and barking as her old owners stand outside the fence. What kind of a monster would do such a thing, and then la-te-dah casually sashay past the unwanted dog to get a new one? What horrible people! How much better you must be than them. How superior you are to those heartless bastards! I freely admit that I felt the same.

Except....

I did a little digging, and it turns out that the couple gave up the dog because they had a baby, and the dog was behaving very aggressively towards the baby. They didn't want to give up the dog, they had to give up the dog. (The Inside Edition story linked briefly alludes to “another pet”, but I've seen other accounts which clearly state that it was a new baby). Now that you know that, the story become heartbreaking rather than outrageous. But heartbreak doesn't garner as many clicks as outrage.

The only thing I can question is their decision to go to the same shelter that had the old dog, but I dunno, maybe it was the only one in town. Maybe they just wanted to see Zuzu one last time.


(Wife Edit: tell the toaster-fucking story, it's relevant) Ok Fine.

Related: We were talking to Little the other day about the impact of social media on how we see the world, and I was telling him how what's presented by the media isn't necessarily reality, and how social media distorts the fringes of reality. It went something like this:

Suppose you have a kid your age who finds that he has the urge to fuck a toaster. In the past, he'd either keep it to himself and learn to live with it, or, if he mentioned it to someone else, they'd tell him he was crazy and pretty much the same thing would happen. Now, he goes online and finds that there's a whole community dedicated to toaster-fucking. Hell, there's an entire Reddit about it (I have no idea if there is actually a toaster-fucking Reddit). So he starts talking online to toaster-fuckers world wide, and they tell him that it's a wonderful hobby, and completely normal, and that anyone who opposes him is oppressing him. This ability to connect can be a wonderful tool for people who are actually facing oppression, but it also magnifies the fringe, and the deviant and the dangerous. Couple this with a media that wants to celebrate anything that is against traditional Western mores and common sense, and pretty soon you have Congressmen introducing bills that toaster-fuckers are a Constitutionally protected class, and anyone who dares say 'Uh, dude, you shouldn't do that” is ostracized. And so the kid winds up burning his dick off.


Look, we're all being manipulated, all the time. You can't prevent it, the best you can do is to be aware of it and how it happens.

Now Is The Time On The ONT When We Dance


Let's all try to be as happy as that guy, shall we?


Dedication To The Role


British Man Pleads Guilty After Faking 2 Year Coma to Avoid Court, Cops Say

Also misleading, in that he only pretended to be in a coma some of the time, the rest of the time he was pretending to be paralyzed. The article says he was “surrounded by medical equipment” in his home. I wonder how much of the money he stole was spent on the medical equipment to maintain the charade?

Nature


Extremely rare white cougar highlights a quirk of the species

I also question the veracity of this headline, because half the pop-up ads on my computer assure me that there are dozens of white cougars in my area.


Switcheroo


Ever wonder what would happen if you switched the character models in video games?

Got an extra $12,000 sitting around? Might I suggest....

Anyway - FYI - on a Q&A today on his website - Mark Steyn basically said no more guest hosting for him on Rush; that he wishes the people well but his loyalty was to Rush himself, and obliquely wonders (as people here have) if talk radio in general can survive post-Rush.

My sense is, he is smart enough to know following Rush is a no win situation...

16 Pooky's post-op report:

The anesthesia and surgery went better than expected, he really doesn't have a uvula anymore, and I could tell that his right nostril was bigger than it had been. He says that even with the stents and gauze in, he can breathe better than he could before. The next few days will be a bit miserable with the painkillers, antibiotics and nasal rinses, but we are on the road to recovery!

THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR PRAYERS! It was truly appreciated.

We had to get rid of a dog once when my youngest brother was born and the dog was too aggressive. I was told my parents found a family to adopt the dog, and have never asked if that was true or not.

And then it turned out he was allergic to our cats as well (and it turns out that so am I, but we never knew).

38 Okay so a cute story and it happened in real life today.

I'm just looking out the kitchen window and neighbor across the street is fertilizing his lawn. I see the cutest little pup trotting up the street towards him. I know it's not his dog and I look down the street and see no one so I think.. this is a loose pup. The puppy runs towards him and it dawns on him too.. loose doggeh. So he scoops him up and proceeds to go down the street to find the owners. I had shit to do so I forgot about it for awhile. I look out the window again and neighbor is now back in his driveway with the pup. Part 2 follows....

Luckily a year and a half ago the staff office was moved, but because of what I do I have an office all to myself. Plus some changes that were made during COVID mean I can work 1/2 my hours at home, so I won't have to put up with wearing a mask at work for anything other than getting to and from my office, and maybe to get a drink out of the staff fridge.

65 The only thing I can question is their decision to go to the same shelter that had the old dog, but I dunno, maybe it was the only one in town.

Or maybe they should put off getting another dog until their baby is older. I've known three families who got dogs when they had babies and ended up getting rid of the dogs. When you get a dog, you never know what issues there may be. It's a commitment. New baby time maybe isn't the best time to make that commitment.

66 So I just got through hearing one of the worst Leftist-tyranny stories I have heard in a while.

I know an employee at a private school in southern Virginia; pretty conservative area and student body, but some of the faculty are total nutjobs. Recently, the guidance counselor launched a "No Place for Hate" group, and she and they put together a written pledge that students would be "invited" to sign, promising not to use a whole range of offensive speech (determined by the counselor, natch). But it was supposed to be voluntary.

Today, they unveiled the pledge during lunch hour, and the counselor and the athletic director effectively ordered the students to sign it. And I don't mean they said, "We want all of you to sign this," they fucking called out by name the students at each table (limited numbers at each because of Covid) and told them to come up and add their names. A few slipped out and managed to hide until it was over, but the majority did, because peer pressure + authority + etc. The handful who didn't go up to sign were then browbeaten by the athletic director until they finally did.

I've long owned and loved Grobschnitt's stone-cold classic album Solar Music Live, but never seen what they actually looked like live. Vintage 70s Prog in extremis coolnis. This is theatrical rock in a way that would have made early-70s Peter Gabriel jealous. Astoundingly good stuff. Plus- fire. Lots and lots of fire. Even a horned firegod beast thing. And by that point, of course there is:

81 The counselor was then on the hunt the rest of the afternoon, frantically trying to track down those who had gotten away, so she could force them to sign as well.

I mean, what the actual hell? I'd expect this from a public school, and even many private ones, but again, this is in a "red" region that bills itself as teaching classical and Christian values. Even if the school leadership is a bunch of cucks, I can't understand how they would allow this open bullying of students.

84 re: Thong mask

This afternoon when Mrs IMG and SIL returned from an outing (including thrift store shopping), SIL related a story about an unusual mask she saw one day.

Bra cup. Purple lace, etc. Heh. Apparently very large cup size, which aided the breathability.

So, which one of you Morons was that?

94 The only thing I can question is their decision to go to the same shelter that had the old dog, but I dunno, maybe it was the only one in town.

Or maybe they should put off getting another dog until their baby is older. I've known three families who got dogs when they had babies and ended up getting rid of the dogs. When you get a dog, you never know what issues there may be. It's a commitment. New baby time maybe isn't the best time to make that commitment.
Posted by: nerdygirl at March 11, 2021 10:14 PM (+lVUW)


Yeah, I understand getting rid of the dog in the first place, but getting another one in full view of said dog really throws me. It's incredibly thoughtless, at best.

Dogs are strange. Ajax looks at small children as Things to be Herded (he did this to my buddies toddler when they came to visit a while back. Just cautiously worked the kid until he was under an end table, sat down in front of him, looked at me and wagged his tail. Good dog. Sort of? The kid was safe, at least.)

I have heard a few tricks for trying to get dogs to be a bit more sociable with new people, esp skittish ones. Take used clothing (unwashed after they wore it for a day) and put it in the dog bed or crate. Take the kid and the dog on a walk, get it into the dogs head that this is not a foreign invader but a new member of the pack. That kind of thing.

The whipsaw is going to be brutal. Massive inflation of the money supply will cause cash to lose more and more value at first (yeah, it can still lose more). But then once the debt markets (which are much, much larger than the money supply) start to collapse due to defaults on a global scale (which we almost had in 2007) cash will become the most valuable thing on the planet.

That is until people realize it's all fake and start burning it to stay warm.

Decades ago there was an incident in Michigan where a woman screwed her husbands brother and got pregnant by him. After having the baby she came home to her husband with said baby. An argument ensued where husband pushed the slut, oops, I mean wife. He didn't punch her, he pushed her. He was arrested and when he went to court the judge gave him a "slap on the wrist".

Feminists were outraged because, gee, just because a woman fu**s her husband's brother, has a baby by the brother, and expects her husband to raise the child like it was no big deal, how dare he get upset?

Anyway - FYI - on a Q&A today on his website - Mark Steyn basically said no more guest hosting for him on Rush; that he wishes the people well but his loyalty was to Rush himself, and obliquely wonders (as people here have) if talk radio in general can survive post-Rush.

My sense is, he is smart enough to know following Rush is a no win situation...

It's not that talk radio can't survive post-Rush; it's that talk radio will have a difficult time with podcasts, streams, and so forth. I live 600 miles from Houston and I would typically listen to Rush via KTRH on iHeart rather than terrestrial radio. (Back when I first heard Rush when he was on KTSA in San Antonio, you had to know where to find him, and if you went on the road, you'd be screwed unless you wanted to channel hop to find the right station.)

Interesting bit of trivia about that company: Ronnie Barrett was originally a pro photographer. One day he took a great photo of some sort of patrol boat that had Ma Deuces mounted on it, and like any good Tennesseean he got to thinking "this photo has artistic merit, but what I really want to do is shoot some guns like that!"

And thus was the Barret AM rifle born.

Commercial restaurant supply houses have 50lb. bags of such, but I can't envision working through such a quantity before it "went off", even in tough times. But finding the product locally, in sizes larger than 9.6 oz., is proving to be an exercise in frustration.

Clausewitz's "On War" is one of the most heavily cited, but unread books in print. 1984 is much easier reading but I have the feeling that many think they "read it in High School" but really didn't. That is my feeling and I could be wrong.

Correct. Jason only appears for a jump scare at the end of the film, though it is done in a way where it might have been a dream.

And then the sequels made the ending cannon, while having Jason age at an extreme rate between 1 and 2.

245 Yes. That's a potential problem. Because I really hope Trump '24 will be real.. but it would keep the thing going and hopefully they could use the time to find someone to more permanently install behind the Golden EIB Mic. Posted by: LinusVanPelt at March 11, 2021 10:45 PM (pcsoT)

I've said it before, but I think the best candidate to sit behind the Golden EIB mic, is none other than Donald Trump Jr. He's got the quick wit, the wide range of knowledge, can be humorous or cutting, as needed, and most importantly he TAKES NO PRISONERS, leaving the opposition diced sliced scattered and fried across battlefields and radioscapes to the full limit of the wattage allowed.

Because he carries the Trump name, he'd instantly generate the Lightning Rod Effect, infuriate the press and leftists, and scare the ever loving shit out of (D)s, from sea to shining sea. Plus, it'd give him a good many years of building up a publicity, persona and (hopefully) Rushian levels of goodwill, should he chose to use the EIB as a base from which to launch a political career. I don't think anyone else would be nearly as "guaranteed" of success, as he.

If you want to disappear for a while, the mountainous part of East TN is an ideal place to do it.

I recently moved back to one of the smaller towns around Knoxville. Not really out in the sticks, but it ain't The Big City either.

Something to keep in mind is that the TN valley has a lot of hydroelectric dams and nuke plants. Means that, provided we can source replacement parts from time to time, we'll have electricity even if the national/global infrastructure starts to come undone. And middle TN (Cumberland plateau) has farms and gun factories.

Amazingly, said staff member has given her 2 week notice in order to focus on her studies, which she has been doing for at least 2 months while holding her job.

Had a meeting with my boss today where the situation came up and *shock* the situation was not as the staff member had claimed. So I am totally sure the staff member really just wanted to focus on her studies while working some other job to pay her bills.

Freddy vs. Jason does both characters proud.

Yep, inflation, 70s level at the least is coming. And the Fed can't do jack shit about it, lest they destroy the federal govt (when you're $27T in debt, interest rates will kill you) and themselves. They've pushed everything into a coffin corner, and when they lose control, it will be a financial SMOD.

What they're going to do is pretend there is no inflation. I was just reading. The last CPI had some footnotes about data being unavailable because of reasons.

They will simple rejigger and shuffle around all the indexes to hide it, and pretend it's not there, and you say there is, you're a dangerous conspiracy lunatic what needs to be put in Gitmo.

Reading some more detail, the CPI is blaming the 'Rona for the limited data collection.

Some tricks they have up their sleeve: "Hedonic adjustments". Price of something goes up, but they hem and haw that it's because it's better and the real price should be higher, so no real inflation.

Price of beef goes up, so they factor in well, consumers will thus switch to eating more chicken or pork, and shift the weights accordingly.

They will do this shit, and make up more shit.

Which area of spine, the C, T, or L?
I had 4-5-6 c fusion in May, and the results are pretty good so far.
Won't know for sure until 1 year follow-up and some of the things beyond the surgeons control are still up for grabs, but I absolutely couldn't not have it.

It's been good, thank God.

But wait, there's more ...

381 The thing that I still can't get over in regards to Brave New World was the fact it was written in 1932. It blew me away when I read it in the early 1990s and still blows my mind now.

I'd recommend following up with Brave New World Revisited, which Mr. Huxley wrote in response to the speed of technological advances. It was published in 1958 and the whole theme of it was "Brave New World is now closer than I could have ever dared imagine." Had he lived into the 1970s at the very least he would have done another book like it, I'm sure, with the focus being on drugs.

As I recall, Clausewitz was strongest when suggesting that politics and war need to be aligned, lest you fight a war without any alignment to your national aims. For some who seem to think it is a sporting event where you hold up numbered cars to score it, this met with a lot of grumbling.

I have a lot of experience with the process. Insom has my email address if you can get in touch with him, I would be glad to go into details.

Workmans Comp is a good example of government dictating your health care. It is a nightmare for anything serious. I know that's probably not your problem but I had to throw that out there because they damn near ruined my life.

Posted by: qdpsteve at March 11, 2021 11:03 PM (L2ZTs)

most sequels suck in my humble and only personal opinion. Sure there are exceptions like The Godfather Part Deux and some say even The Sting Part Deux. But the franchises that I am sure never came close to the originals are Jaws and Rocky. I know many love the many Rocky films. But to me, nothing comes close to the original. It is like when it came to those kinds of sequels, the money men chose the specific thing about the movie that did NOT make the original great. For Jaws they thought it was about the shark. For Rocky, they thought it was about the boxing and training. At least many enjoy the many Rocky films.

I had a one-level spinal fusion, L5-S1, almost 20 years ago.
My doc did it anterior, something fairly new at the time.
Prior to my surgery, in addition to the back pain, I was suffering extreme sciatica down my right leg.
Post-surgery, I still had pain for some months (inflammation I was told), after that I felt great!
I still feel 100% which is amazing since I'm 20 years older and continue to work a rather physical job.
And no more sciatica ever since.

And yes, I tried everything prior to my surgery, including acupuncture.

Hope this helps.

correct - the State's interest is to see that someone is legally responsible for the upbringing of the child, and that person is going to be the legally assigned mother and father of the child at the time of birth. The mother's authenticity is never in question, and the fathers is... irrelevant to the states interests.

A few years ago, a music minister at our church (also a good friend of mind) was traveling to help some other church about 100 miles north of us. Driving through a county he rarely visits, he was stopped for a minor violation, and they found that he had gotten a similar ticket there 5 years previously, that he had never paid and had forgotten about. Long story short, they carried him to jail and made him stay there until someone from the church drove up with $1200 in cash, which was what they figured the original $80 fine had turned into after 5 years of interest, late fees, and we-got-you-now-HA-HA fees.

516 In the Texas case the issue isn't really that he's being required to pay for a kid who isn't his. The issue is whether he received actual notice in 2003 that the kid existed and that he was alleged to be the father.

That may seem like a distinction without a difference but it isn't. Texas law says if someone says you are the father of a kid and you have actual notice of the alleged fatherhood, then you are on the hook for support until paternity is established by a DNA test.

This guy supposedly was served with papers in 2003 saying he was the father but waited until 2016 to have a paternity test. Thus the big bill, since there was nobody else to tag for the $$$.

All the articles on this case are from 2017 and no other articles after that. There is a YT vid from 2018 that is about this case, so the case was still going on then. I will have to use my PACER-FU to run down the final decision.

It's a good thing that Paolo has enough sense to not face down a hundred armed, well fed and liquor fueled Morons at the Tx Mo Meet, or he might consider it a Happy Hunting Ground for his perditions. But, with 1,200 acres and a backhoe on site, well.. let's just say ol' Paolo ain't made an appearance there, and ain't likely to, nohow.

Quite frankly, SMH, you're a smokeshow, and ex-ex is one damn lucky man to have nabbed you not once, but twice. With luck like that, you need to make sure he buys a weekly lottery ticket.

Not yay. Family law is an abomination and family law judges will fuck you raw with no vaseline the second the woman starts to cry.

Almost every description in a newspaper or on TV I have ever read about or heard about a legal matter has been wrong. And most stories don't have any follow-up to what happened in the final decision. A lot of crazy shit gets decided in the preliminary hearings that happen at the beginning of a case that end up being set aside later once all the evidence is in.

So I would take these wacky paternity cases with a grain o' salt.

553 Texas is the last state to get down on regarding parent's rights to be honest. I can provide details but wont. I know someone who's wife cheated and lied about the kid. I don't even like disclosing this. The end result was not good for her. I won't go into further detail but you can guess it. She basically lost everything and all parental rights. Texas is also super protective of parents that give their kids up for adoption. It is a very conservative state when you get down to it. No way they are making a man pay to support a kid that is not his and he does not claim as his. The further info regarding the very large time span before making the charge is another story. But the idea a man from Texas must pay child support for a child that isn't his, and he does not claim as his, is down right laughable.

That was actually how it worked in some Indian tribes, where they wanted to keep more of an eye on the next generation than would happen in a patrilineal system where the sisters exit the tribe. Here the fathers would come and support their kids, but the brothers of the wives kept control of the resources of the family, and the dad could be expelled and the children kept.

583 Well, beddy-bye time for tired Peons. I got half-way through sanding the drywall mud joints in the front room today, using the power pole sander I got from Amazon. It is well-balanced, but nonetheless heavy; takes a sustained effort to keep the sanding head in contact with the ceiling. Upside: it is very fast, so a brief stint of effort can cover a lot of territory. The vacuum dust catcher isn't 100% effective, but it gets a lot, and it does get most of the very fine dust that would otherwise be airborne.

My next bout of sanding will involve using this machine from a ladder, but mostly only two or three rungs up.

A couple of the Utraman series are available on DVD as well. Mill Creek seems to be trying to get all the franchise shows out, though I think I read one or two series might be under license to someone else. Some are pricey now though it seems.

That looks to be the first season of Ultraman (which is set 2 in Mill Creeks numbering as the lead in series Ultra Q is vol 1) based on the costumes. Haven't watched it in a while so the monster is quite clicking, but a search says it is from the final ep of Ultraman-subsequent series get changes to the name, rather than numbers to differentiate them.

I have no clue how many of my not small amount of wall scrolls are bootlegs, but I imagine the percentage has to be at least 15%, and I suspect a fair amount higher as a number were purchased at the same places that would sell Son May CDs.

And the kit I got was the 144 scale Heavyarms. That was a good day.

Though one dorm room I was in had just about every available space covered with some form of poster. Which are fun to put on the ceiling. Friend of mine was doing tours for prospective students and showed of my room as I had the door open to get a breeze go through.

College was comics and movies. My anime surge happened post college (well, I grew up with Battle of the Planets etc. and had recorded Vampire Hunter D and Lensman off SciFi when it first launched). I had only a few VHS tapes (most I got later when TRSI was fire saleing them) but I went hard starting around 2000 and DVD becoming a thing.

Though I do have DVDs of every title you listed (though not all of Cutie Honey, which I will address one of these days). The only posters I have either came with a title or could be sent in for (Vampire Princess Miyu had one from Tokyopop) or came with a magazine I picked up. By my anime period I really stayed away from posters.

I have no idea if that is the result of the radiation treatment, is related to mental health, or if it is some other random wild card.

I have an appointment in early May with my oncologists nurse so I'll be bringing it up. It isn't as bad as the random nerve pain in my jaw which they also don't know where it comes from. Had a CT scan and everything and they couldn't find it. Luckily it is semi rare, cause when it strikes it is a "stop everything for a minute til it passes" experience. Maybe I did bring it up to my Oncologist as we talked about something as she offered to schedule another scan and I passed as I had one in the last 6 months and it isn't fun. Plus I have a reaction to MRI contrast and when it hit I was in the scanner with mask on and thought I was gonna throw up in the mask, and I don't feel like doing that again any time soon.

675 Real? Yes. Overblown and the reaction completely ginned up? Yes.

I have mentioned before that the level of reaction to this would be warranted by only a few disease outbreaks in history: Antonine Plague, Black Death, maybe Spanish Flu (although the first two were much more devastating as a percentage of population and of greater duration.) The Antonine (probably small pox) killed something like 5-10 million people out of a population of 60 million (so one in 12 to one in six.) I have seen estimates of up to one in two for Black Death and that could be even higher depending on the place (although usually I see 1/3 for the overall mortality.)

678 Something on the order of either the Antonine or the Black Death, it goes without saying, would probably shatter our society in ways that would far exceed the outcomes and reaction that occurred in history for either of them. Both of those diseases occurred in populations of far lower density and who were used to high mortality from disease. We are not either.

The historical devastation of covid will be measured not by the effects of the disease, but rather by the insane overreaction and politization of the disease.

I don't care if I didn't see a dime I just want the Communist Chinese government to be found guilty for what they intentionally did to the world and that would be-murder a whole hellava lot of people.

Part 1

I was thinking a few days ago about what some people say about the halcyons, those small birds that make their nests on the shores of the sea. They make their nests rounded like balls, and they make them so tight that the water cannot penetrate them. There is a small opening at the very top to let in the air. That is where the halcyons keep their baby birds, so that they can roll around and float on the waves without having the nest fill up and be submerged. The air that comes in at the top functions as a counterweight, so that these balls are never destroyed.

to grab viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a
picture or two to get readers interested about what you've written. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
