The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"We recognize that cutting down on sodium in your diet is hard to do on your own because about 70 percent of the sodium we eat comes from processed, packaged, and prepared foods," Susan Mayne, director of the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition

Nannies gotta nanny. Do you think our Founding Fathers thought that some unelected
government nanny decide what we can and cannot eat would be governing us today?

Quote II

"Look, the big picture is that we have a tax gap that over the next decade is estimated at $7 trillion. Namely, a shortfall in the amount that the IRS is collecting due to a failure of individuals to report the income that they have earned." Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen

Quote III

We don’t have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven’t taxed enough; we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much.” President Ronald Reagan

Quote IV

The lefty vax freaks are having too much fun being jerks about it though. They are miserable people who only find joy in spreading their emotional inadequacy and misery to others. It’s safe to say that they’re thrilled that people are losing their jobs over this. Stephen Kruiser

'Things that make you cringe' for a $1,000.

Meet the man who pulled nearly 100 snakes from under an SF Bay Area home

No, but there was definitely a movie-worthy amount of snakes living under a house in Santa Rosa, a city in California's Wine County 60 miles north of San Francisco.

Al Wolf, director of Sonoma County Reptile Rescue, responded to a call Oct. 2 from a woman who said a snake den was under her home.

I guess saying "Disturbed by the allegations." is better than uttering, What the fuck!

A Florida teacher charged with having sex with a 15-year-old student is now pregnant — but she won’t say who the father is, according to a report.

Heiry Calvi, 41, was arrested last Thursday for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with the male student at JC Bermudez Doral Senior High School, the Miami Herald reports.

Calvi told police after being taken into custody that she was pregnant but refused to say how far along she is or the father’s identity.

The teacher has been on leave since March when police were first tipped off after students reported seeing videos of Calvi allegedly having sex with the teenager.

I have no clue why amorous couples need to take photos and videos.

Ashes? No need for my relatives to get in trouble with a NFL team. They can just use a Waste Management dumpster.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and local authorities are investigating how ashes were able to be spread across Heinz Field on Sunday during the team’s win over the Denver Broncos.

The team and police said that someone spread their relative’s ashes at the stadium following the Steelers game, KDKA-TV reported. Fans are reportedly not permitted to spread ashes at all at Heinz Field and it’s illegal to do so in Pennsylvania without permission.

Captain Kirk, there and back.

Hollywood actor William Shatner has become the oldest person to go to space as he blasted off aboard the Blue Origin sub-orbital capsule.

The 90-year-old, who played Captain James T Kirk in the Star Trek films and TV series, took off from the Texas desert with three other individuals.

Mr Shatner's trip on the rocket system - developed by Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos - lasted about 10 minutes.

The craft safely landed just after 10:00 local time (16:00 BST).

You can attempt to spin. But there is never a justifiable reason to shoot an unarmed woman in the back. Unless you are despicable cop.

More than 500 pages of internal documents from DC Metropolitan Police concerning the fatal shooting of Ashli Babbitt in the Capitol on Jan. 6 reveal witness accounts stating she was not holding a weapon at the time of her death and how "upset" the officer was after shooting her.

"These previously secret records show there was no good reason to shoot and kill Ashli Babbitt," stated Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, which obtained the documents through a May 2021 FOIA lawsuit. "The Biden-Garland Justice Department and the Pelosi Congress have much to answer for the over the mishandling and cover-up of this scandalous killing of an American citizen by the U.S. Capitol Police.

Unfortunately for Ashli Babbitt, she didn't check all of the Sainted Special Victimhood box.


Speaking of boxes. If she were black her election would be guaranteed.

An Antifa supporting candidate for Seattle City Attorney, campaigning to oversee the office’s $35 million budget, declared bankruptcy, has a massive amount of debt, and lives in subsidized housing.

Nicole Thomas Kennedy, who has campaigned on cutting the City Attorney’s criminal division and an end to prosecuting misdemeanors, has a massive amount of debt. According to her 2019 bankruptcy petition there is approximately $465,000 of debt, which is mostly student loans.

When salt shakers are outlawed only outlaws will have salt shakers. How long before Norway bans archery equipment?

A man shooting arrows from a bow has been arrested after killing five and injuring two people in Norway. Multiple areas have been evacuated and police say it is too early to tell whether the attack was terrorism-related.
Norwegian public broadcaster NRK reported that five people were killed and two injured, one of whom was a plainclothes police officer. The lone attacker was taken into custody, but his identity has not been revealed. There is no suspicion that anyone else was involved.

How long have vaping instruments been available? The FDA is just getting around to give pronouncements.

WASHINGTON — Health officials on Tuesday authorized the first electronic cigarettes in the U.S., saying the R.J. Reynolds vaping products can benefit adult smokers.

The Food and Drug Administration said data submitted by the company showed its Vuse e-cigarettes helped smokers either quit or significantly reduce their use of cigarettes, the leading preventable cause of death in the U.S.

Tuesday's first-of-a-kind decision is part of a sweeping effort by the FDA to bring scientific scrutiny to the multibillion-dollar vaping industry after years of delays.

In September, the agency said it had rejected applications for more than a million e-cigarettes and related products, mainly due to their potential appeal to underage teens. But regulators delayed making decisions on most of the major vaping companies, including market leader Juul.

Bodily functions. Just what are the police supposed to do? Genius Award Winner 2nd Runner Up.

A police force in Ontario has released 911 audio after a man called the emergency line to report he had to go pee while stuck in traffic.

Peel Regional Police released the audio on Friday to remind people about the proper uses of dialling 911.

When the 38-second call begins, the operator asks the man if he needs police, fire or ambulance.

Things could have gone really bad. Perhaps it was a good thing he was stopped. Genius Award Winner, 1st Runner Up.

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The Lincoln Police Department arrested a man they say had a homemade explosive device in his pocket.

On Friday around 8:30 p.m., police stopped a white 1999 Ford F-150 in the area of 70th Street and Leighton Avenue.

LPD said homeowners in the area had called to report the vehicle was seen driving erratically through the neighborhood.

Police said the driver of the truck, 30-year-old Cody Ryan, was wanted for an outstanding felony warrant and was taken into custody.

Florida Man is a horse f*cker and our Genius Award Winner.

Suspecting that someone had entered a barn on her property without permission, a Florida Woman set up a trail camera that subsequently recorded a laborer having repeated sexual contact with a horse housed in the structure, police report.

Homeowner Catherine Engel told police that last month she installed the trail camera inside the four-stall Vero Beach barn where her horses are kept after discovering ligature marks around one horse’s neck. She also recalled finding bungee cords and ropes around the neck of a miniature horse “even though she never placed any on it.”

The camera, cops say, captured Santiago Victoria, 57, entering the barn late at night and invading a stall occupied by a horse name Mariah. During three separate encounters, Victoria “gets behind the horse in a sexual manner,” according to an arrest affidavit.

The Indian River Sheriff’s Office affidavit provides a graphic account of Victoria’s alleged illicit conduct inside the barn.

Engel identified Victoria as the suspect, telling cops that he worked for a welding company that parks vehicles on the same property where the barn is situated.

Wham, bam, thank ya Sarah Jessica. He didn't even bring sugar cubes or apples. Cheap Genius Award Winner to boot.

55 Does anyone else use google pay? Are you having any issues with it? I don't use it but my husband does, and it wasn't recognizing his card or something. Idk. So he went to go fix it, and whatever he did locked him out of it. We have google phones (shhh, i know) that is the single point of payment for them. So google cancelled our cell service. Aside from the shittiness of it all, that seems like an extremely not-robust system. I am not happy.

Also the dog is doing worse. He was losing his back end rapidly on saturday. We got him on nsaids and he had monday better, but got bad again yesterday. This am the diagnosed a disc bulge and gave us prednisone but he's even worse right now. He can't stand. He can't pee. Its not a good day.

74 Paid leave, no doubt.

I was once at the retirement party for the manager of a county electric utility.

The manager, who was a very funny guy, announced that his life's goal had been to be placed on paid administrative leave - "I mean, it just doesn't get any better than that!"

The board of the utility, who were present, voted to place him on paid administrative leave for his last half hour of employment, so he could fulfill his life's dream.

94 For the most part, aside from those with cardiac or certain digestive issues problems, salt is not a problem. Big scandal years ago about the CDC recommending low salt diets for everyone when in reality only about ten percent of population (percentage is from memory) actually had a medical need for such. Rationale was that they did not want that segment requiring low salt of the population to feel disrespected.

150 121, Helena, that can be one condition but generally some people cannot retain salt and that can result in some serious conditions.

I personally have just came from the hospital from visiting someone that has just that problem of low blood pressure. Then I see the ONT thread and go ballistic.

There is also the risk that low salt intake coupled with eliminating too much salt via urination, vomiting, sweating, laxative use, diuretics, etc. can result in your blood becoming too basic which is a serious condition called alkalosis. Know someone that had that happen to them.

People stand in the street because they know you are too nice to flatten them. It's actually sociopathic behavior. They view the humanity of the average man as something that can be leveraged and abused.

It's the majority of society adhering to the social contract, while a select few do not adhere to it.

157 Blood on the Tracks is one of my top three Dylan Albums. 1975, it was, IMO, Dylan at his peak.
There are even better cuts on it, I was in a Dylan jag just last week and my three favorites are, in no particular order:

"Shelter from the Storm"

"Tangled Up in Blue"

"Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts"

Followed by every food they wanted to strike, as being a "crisis" of one kind or another. I learned at a very early age what "gaslighting" was, even before I was familiar with the term. Growing up with a Dad who was a Nuclear Submariner, I *instantly* recognized every time the media lied about anything nuclear. And expanding that knowledge to most anything the media reported, well, let's just say "Honest Reporter" are the most endangered species.

Drive by just to say:

my kids have a video game called Rayman. There are musical levels. One is a musical level based on this song. I stopped what I was doing the first time I heard it playing and walked over to watch. It's very clever. The jumps and kicks are timed with the song.

Watch:

https://youtu.be/OzFrkUcOsL8

A neat game and very safe for kids. Best part is you can play two players on the same screen and, in difficult situations, one player can play while the other player floats along in a little bubble until it's safe to continue playing. Really good way to get two people with different skill levels to still enjoy playing together.

Back in 2016, Katie Couric interviewed Ruth Bader Ginsburg. By editing the interview, Couric hid the fact that Ginsburg was already unfit for the SCOTUS, thus allowing Ginsburg to skate till the Trump Presidency where she died and Trump replaced her. If Couric hadn't hid the truth, perhaps she would have been pressured to let Obama replace Ginsburg.

It's Couric fault that Trump filled the SCOTUS seat instead of Obama. Clearly, the case can be made that Couric gave away a seat to the Right.

279 Horror season has begun early chez Publius. This evening, his mom lost her balance and fell against the counter. In doing so she caught the knob on the utensil drawer under her armpit and it tore her skin. Publius described it as looking like a war wound, like someone went at her with a machete. I dread seeing it.

Anyway, he took her to the ER 3 hours ago. She's having a CT scan right now. I have no idea how they're going to repair this, as her skin is very thin and fragile, what with her being 91. So if any prayer-minded morons are around, please say a few words for Publius' Mama.

Meanwhile, I'm babysitting his dad (93) who really has no idea what's going on other than she fell in the kitchen and is seeing a doctor to make sure she's OK. He's had his dinner and is lying on the sleeper sofa in front of the TV. I'm not up on the pill-dispensing, so that will have to wait until Publius shows up, whenever that is.

I predicted this years ago.

When people realized that the police were not only not going to get rid of the 'protestors' screwing everybody else over by ILLEGALLY blocking the roads, but the police were actually going to actively protect the protestors from anybody else getting them off the road, then people were going to CEASE CALLING THE POLICE, and get rid of the protestors themselves.

When people call the police and they spend hours 'negotiating' with a tiny handful of jackasses screwing over THOUSANDS of people, then people get ANGRY, and angry people are prone to stupid and violent decisions.

Now, on the upside! Yesterday a very fine thing happened. A guy sideswiped Publius' parents mailbox with the mirror on his truck (something that has happened countless times here, as people are careless and don't seem to realize how far their silly mirrors stick out).

The fine thing was that he actually stopped to tell us, and said he will replace said mailbox. No one has ever done that before.

Walk into any busy coffee house very early in the morning, get in line, and just before they take your order, turn around and look at the faces of those in line behind you.
You've never seen a more pitiful bunch of faces, anywhere. And then watch them as they get their hot beverage and take that first sip.
You can see their humanity returning.

377 Kindltot, in his book Danse Macabre, SK describes three levels of literary/cinematic thrills, from best/highest to worst/lowest:

- Terror. This is when the audience (book or film) is genuinely scared for themselves as well as the characters. It's as if they're themselves threatened.

- Horror. This is when the audience is scared for the characters but not themselves. It's also a kind of dread about seeing what's going to happen next.

- The Gross-Out. Just making the audience go "oh yuck, that would be horrible!"

I still have a television production textbook, and a textbook about how American broadcasting works and is structured, from roughly about 1985, when I was taking broadcasting classes at Long Beach City College.

I keep them around just for entertainment value mostly. They're so outdated it's like reading fairy tales almost. EVERYTHING since these books were written has been completely changed and blown up.

I used to enjoy reading Vince Flynn and other writers of this kind. Now, understanding that the FBI and CIA are rotten practically to the core, it's just not the same.

While it would be amusing, and Musk is definitely doing best of all the private launch companies, Musk also isn't really doing the passenger thing right now.

Though I suspect that if someone wanted to start a company that used his rockets for passenger flights, he'd be happy to help (for a suitable fee, of course).

You have limited-slip differentials, and you have lockers. Lockers lock up solid, and there is no differential action at all. Limited-slip differentials control wheel spin, but not to the point of locking solid.

Then you have the Torsen differential, which exploits the non-return properties of worm gears to deliver torque to the axle with the most load on it.

Never was a Dylan fan. Listened to his early albums, not real impressed, some good lyrics, but that affected Woody Guthrie voice put me off. So many years later, one day, found Blood on the Tracks, and felt like I'd found a great hidden treasure (kind-of like the day I found a Who album called "Tommy"). Dylan learned to enunciate, too.

He's had his dinner and is lying on the sleeper sofa in front of the TV. I'm not up on the pill-dispensing, so that will have to wait until Publius shows up, whenever that is.

I'm so sorry to hear that Miley. Hope his Mom is OK, I had the idea she was a tough southern farm gal. Sounds like his Dad really needs Mom.

We just got the news that Jules' Dad, Jerry, has had hospice called in. He lost his bride of 67 yrs in Mar. Then fell twice in their apt and was moved to the nursing care section.

He's blind and mostly deaf, but lived on his own in their apt for 2 yrs after she had small stokes and went to the nursing care part. Tough old bird, hope he can make it till we can get out there.

473 461 With limited slip the fastest spinning wheel receives the power. You can help push the car around a curve because the outside wheel is spinning fastest and has the power.

Posted by: Braenyard at October 13, 2021 11:21 PM (yXf+h)

You have limited-slip differentials, and you have lockers. Lockers lock up solid, and there is no differential action at all. Limited-slip differentials control wheel spin, but not to the point of locking solid.

Then you have the Torsen differential, which exploits the non-return properties of worm gears to deliver torque to the axle with the most load on it.

While it's true that he mostly dozes, you never know when he'll get some fool idea in his head. Better safe than sorry.

508 Speaking of hospitals, I went in to the lab at the local hospital today for a routine blood test. I was wearing my clear plastic face shield, in lieu of the paper face diaper, and fully expected to get nagged about it. Imagine my surprise when the "compliance monitor" in the lobby said to me, "Here, throw away that old scratched face shield, and have a new one, instead." So, I did, and remarked, "You know these accomplish the same thing as those", pointing to her blue paper face mask. "They both stop us from spraying snot and/or spittle on other people." She said, "you're right, which is why we accept them as an alternative."

Such sanity is shocking. I darned near forgot to tell the phlebotomist to be sure to tap the "unleaded" pump.

You know what we need? A parallel health care system. Too tired to go on, but with all the frustration I had to deal with tonight, I remembered the old timers telling me how it used to be.

When my father was a little boy, local doctors had their offices in their houses. Oh, one or two might have an office in town. But most of 'em lived in a house, usually close to town, with a few farther out in the country.

You needed to see a doc, you went to his house. He'd fix you up right there. You paid him a modest fee (and believe me, he had a lot of folks on a type of installment plan, you might say). No insurance, no coding, no government regulation and control.

We need that again, at least for us deplorables out in the country. We need some underground doctors. The goverment would probably consider that domestic terrorism.

But I'm think about it. That's what we need. Black market, underground doctors.

581 If you want to improve health care, you need to improve health. Certainly, there are people with serious health problems who need medical intervention, but there is so much, pardon the pun, low-hanging fruit out there. Your health begins with you. If you don't care about your health, your health won't care about you and there'll be much less that doctors can do. Last Summer I was close to 200# (at 5'8"), BP 124/84, and while my LDL was high (normal) and my trigs were low (normal), my normally high HDL was low. Exercise! you say. Not possible until I had my hernia fixed, which it finally was in November. (5" scar) A few months later, down to 175 but more muscle, BP between 110-115/73-78, resting pulse 60, cholesterol more in line with historical norm. Sure, I needed hernia surgery. But after that, no drugs. Ok, I take that back; no prescription drugs. My father was on statins and other things. Nada for me. But ya gotta eat right, eat well, move, and lift.

But I do agree that for many things, the modern business of practicing medicine is really screwing things up in many ways.

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting the grandson of one of Sterling's first doctors, Moses M. Royer. He had the same arrangement for a bit, common for the times.

What's amazing is that Royer was born in 1828, came to practice in Sterling in the 1850s. I met his 90-something grandson in the 1990s, who still lived in Royer's retirement home in the Chicago burbs.

I'll tell you a good one about one of those old local docs of your. His was Doc White. My father, as a little boy, was the very last patient he treated. My father, born in '27, was a little toddler. Probably around 1930 or so. My grandparents carried him to Doc White, at his house. He gave my father something. The next day, or the next night sometime, Doc White cashed in his chips.

My grandfather (who died before I was born) said of Doc White: He's the best doctor in the country....when he's sober. When he's drunk, he's the second best.

My grandfather would have preferred to be treated by a stumbling drunk Doc White over any other. And from some of the stories, Doc White could tie one on every so often.

Up early, but I actually got to bed early too. Sipping coffee over a Hill Street Blues episode, and debating whether to pack and light a pipe.

I submitted the infamous religious exemption statement yesterday afternoon just before leaving work. The die is cast. Now we must play out the game.

Yes, it is a UTI. Which the first round of antibiotics didn't kick. The doc has mentioned hospitalization, but she won't go. I think she's called something like "a strong-willed woman" or in other words "a stubborn bitch".

Both of those might be national, but I know I used to buy French Market Blend when I lived in Denver. A can cost $5, but it was a whole pound.

Denverites had no idea of the stuff. I brought some to work once and brewed up a pot, thinking to treat my colleagues. An hour later I heard someone asking the receptionist, "Is there something wrong with the coffeemaker?" I gave up after that.

Thanks, Skip,

The vets did not note any blood in his urine, so there's that. Most recently they did an ultrasound on his bladder, and said there were some crystals there but very little, and nothing to be concerned about. He's still eating but being rather lethargic; I guess I need to bring him in again.

The antibiotic they shot him with on this last visit seemed to perk him up quite a bit. Now that it's worn off, he's back to being sluggish again. Though he had no fever at the last visit (?).

Another example of this was deBlob, and its (even better) sequel deBlob 2. Best incorporation of music into gameplay, ever.
