Cat is training to be a goalie.

This cat is weirdly good at standing up. Make it stop.

This cat is weirdly good at camouflage. Note there are four cats, not three. Yes, I've confirmed it. The fourth is very hard to see. (No, he's not hiding behind another cat. He's in plain sight.)

A toddler is having trouble climbing into bed, so the family dog comes over to give him a living foot-stool.

Dog pretends to be mean and snarly, but he's really just a sweetie.

Toddlers and dog have a jumping party.

Puppy jailbreak.

I think this is a mama whale with her calf.

Tandem jump.

Hedgehog pups-- they don't look real. they look like very basic cartoons.

Could this be real? If the ball is CGI, what is the dog doing?

White guy behind him says "You voted for it".

Black guy turns back and looks, realizes he doesn't have anybody in his side, turns back around.

This is why I believe the pendulum is swinging. Under Obama, very, very few people would have DARED make that retort. Today, people have been pushed further, feel is more personally, and are angrier.

"Also Scott Wiener, the Wiener of Wonder."
Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara

He was my supervisor....

Living where I do, let's see: Scott Wiener (supervisor now CA legislature), Kamala Harris (SFDA and CAAG), Nancy Pelosi (Congress), Dianne Feinstein (Congress), Chesa Boudin (DA). Those are just the current names of note. Do you realize how frightening that list is when the pot pill starts kicking in?

I'm gonna go mosey down to my studio and play guitar for a bit....

P.s. A long time ago, I determined that among the lawyer crowd in my particular area of emphasis (real property), it was the pro-property/landlord lawyers who were the pot smokers, not the pro-confiscation/inverse condemnation/tenant lawyers.

27 looking into some of the articles referenced in the last thread, I'm just starting to realize how serious the supply chain situation. Not only is it bad, but we're just at the beginning of the trouble, which is going to accelerate for months. Since shortages cause prices to go up, this combined with energy could cause us to go to 10% per month sustained inflation, soon.

and there's no stopping that as long as Biden is President.

57 The supply chain situation could have been mitigated if the administration/junta wanted to. They either let it fester intentionally (likely) or the responsible parties (Sec. of Transportation Mz. Buttfucker) and whomever in this clown show is on Trade totally forgot to show up for work. Also likely.

99 Yes, there is supposed to be a weather related shortage of coffee. I heard Brazil had a freeze that affected this year's crop.

It will be interesting to see what the Folgers, Maxwell House, $tarbux and McDonald's do when their Brazilian crop is smaller.

Small houses can buy from boutique farms, not so with the big ones, they have to make a blend that scales for billions of consistent cups around the globe and is yet familiar with people who have been drinking that dreck for decades.

I can't see McDonald's getting in to differing SOs from store to store.

I struggle with faith all the time. But I have decided that there is an upside to believing and acting as though God exists and a considerable downside to assuming He does not.

A physicist who is also a practicing Christian published an interesting article in the WSJ recently. He said the more he learns about the cosmos the more mysterious and baffling it becomes; as a scientist, he already is called upon to believe in many things he cannot see. He said his knowledge brought him to believe in God.

Posted by: Tom Servo at October 14, 2021 07:26 PM (evAgx)


Well, we thought we had kind of figured out where the center of things was, and that given finite time X (in years) the "edge" must be X light years from the center. And we could prove that the center was the origin point because stuff would spread out from that point. You know, put dots on a balloon, blow it up, and the dots are all further apart.

Except for this: there is a uniform density to the universe. Yes. there are knots and voids, but that is uniform, everywhere. While the Big Bang remains the top origin theory, the evidence for it is...lacking.

246 Sauerkraut: you need large bowls, an open place to cut and mix cut cabbage, a scales and pre-measured salt. 1 store cabbage makes two quarts - 1-3/4 lbs makes a quart of kraut

Mix shredded cabbage with 2 tsp of salt in a large bowl, let stand for 30 - 60 minutes to wilt and create brine.
Pack into a quart jar leaving about an inch of head space (add in chilies or garlic if you want). Cut out a couple of round leaf pieces from cabbage leaves to tamp down over the cabbage to make a cover. There should be enough brine from the salting, but if there is not, mix up more brine and pour into the jar. It should leave 1/2" of headspace

close jar with a lid, and set on the drainboard for a couple of days, until it starts changing color, and stops bubbling. It might bubble over and you don't need that in storage.
If you get mildew you can siphon it off and take out the round piece of cabbage, but you need to keep the kraut covered in brine

I put the jars in the fridge and they stay good for months

He then suggested that the cosmic background is, in effect, a snapshot of quantum fluctuations at the moment of the Big Bang. I have no idea if this is really true, but it's a hell of an idea.

271 "A physicist who is also a practicing Christian ... said his knowledge brought him to believe in God."

Some atheist physicist I listened to a little on subjects like dark matter or other things beyond me ... she came out with "no one has free will" ... to her (I couldn't listen to it all) I assume she thinks, everything is just biochemical reactions, electrical synapsis responses, we have no choices.

I suppose that is logical to the "scientist" that thinks all is in (five senses?) science. Hard to me to perceive how they can think we can even have Awareness, to even know that we don't have free will. ... The ability to observe alone suggest we are more than biochemistry at work, even if advanced physics is tossed in the mix.

To me, All life is spirit, but not all spirit is eternal life spirit. In man's day (now) we (souls) get to choose whether to believe and "follow". I like the Born Again concept ... children of God receiving an eternal life holy spirit, somehow incorporated into our earthly being.

I'll take the Greek yogurt, thanks.

If the Greeks have been making yogurt a certain way for zillions of years, isn't it odd that the rest of us just learned about it about 10 years ago? I don't remember Greek yogurt ever being an option before Fage was sold here - and then suddenly every yogurt company was offering their version of it.

280 223 blaster, I know you are a good guy. Many people I am truly fond of spend time with you. I do not understand your hard-on about JackStraw as he is MY friend .
Posted by: Ben Had at October 14, 2021 07:34 PM (hoY5O)


No one on this board wanted JackStraw to be right more than me. Really.

He wasn't. And that's fine, predicting is hard, especially about the future, and all that. And Lord knows I am not correct 100% of the time! Almost, but, you know....

Anyway, we have differing opinions here. That's part of the fun of it. I mean, I don't know about you people who like sauerkraut, but okay. Where that goes wrong is when a party - in this case JackStraw - says, I am right, and you are wrong, and you are not smart enough to know why I am right and you are an asshole for disagreeing.

So there you have it.

Ah, so someone besides me and my posse saw that movie back in the day? That was one of the most memorable scenes Anna, and very true to life! We sat in the theater and laughed our asses off because we knew about wasabi and and had been amazed when Jean Reno appeared to eat it like whipped cream.

295 looking into some of the articles referenced in the last thread, I'm just starting to realize how serious the supply chain situation. Not only is it bad, but we're just at the beginning of the trouble, which is going to accelerate for months. Since shortages cause prices to go up, this combined with energy could cause us to go to 10% per month sustained inflation, soon.

and there's no stopping that as long as Biden is President.


There will soon be an avalanche of articles from the MFM telling us that shortages are a good thing, because they allow us to get back to the true meaning of Xmas (you know, the Xmas based on something they dismiss), instead of being a bunch of greedy, materialistic Americans.

Jonah Goldberg's Narcissism of Small Differences
by Mona Charen
https://tinyurl.com/r7vz3ar2

Well. That's awfully close to accusing The Bulwark of Trump Derangement Syndrome-an accusation that has often been lobbed at Goldberg by people who regard any criticism of El Jefe as treason. And completely untrue to boot: The same week Goldberg accused The Bulwark of Trump obsession, the website published pieces about Chris Christie, long-term trends in the American military, Ron DeSantis, vaccine objectors, Gavin Newsom, Vladimir Putin, Norm Macdonald, the Taliban, Biden, gender balances in education, and election reform, just to offer a small sample.

Nor does Goldberg deny the centrality of the Trump phenomenon in other contexts. In a recent column, he endorsed the concept of a third party, a Reaganite one, even if the only consequence would be to divide the conservative vote and hand victory to Democrats.

Soros prosecutors agree on not arresting criminals ... they are just victims of circumstances, white supremacist oppression circumstances.

I tell them our district is ranked in the BOTTOM DECILE of the state's school districts, and they act like they didn't hear me. I tell them about the thousands of people hospitalized by classroom fighting each year, and they say 'Gee that didn't happen when I was teaching in 1982.' NO SHIT SHERLOCK! I tell them the kids are being taught they can choose their own gender from the Baskin-Robbins menu. They've never heard a thing about it, so they say. ASSHOLES, every last one of them.

361 I struggle with faith all the time. But I have decided that there is an upside to believing and acting as though God exists and a considerable downside to assuming He does not.

A physicist who is also a practicing Christian published an interesting article in the WSJ recently. He said the more he learns about the cosmos the more mysterious and baffling it becomes; as a scientist, he already is called upon to believe in many things he cannot see. He said his knowledge brought him to believe in God.

How do I feel? There is probably a German word for it. I don't know what it is in English. Let's say that I knew that Trump would not win when the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that pretty much anything would be counted as a ballot. That decision was made in July, I think. They told us how the election would be stolen, then they stole it, and then they crowed about how it was done.

But don't you dare say they did it. Honestly, these people scare the shit out of me. They have no limits, internal or external. People say oh this or that action means that they are panicking! No, they are doing what they can because they can.

And one of those things is getting away completely scot free on Russiagate.

I'm going to tell maybe my favorite story about my kids, and I've got a bunch of them. This one is special because my daughter proved the existence of God to me, and she did it so simply and elegantly and without trying, which is always the best way.

We were camping in the backyard and catching lightning bugs a couple of summers ago. She asked what the purpose of lightning bugs was. I thought and thought, and I told her I couldn't really come up with one. She stated very matter-of-factly that clearly they were put here just to make kids (and adults) smile on summer evenings.

I had no counter argument to that.

And McCabe - I remember saying that McCabe would never pay a price, then he got fired ONE day before his retirement was official, and that was used as proof that see it cost him .001% of his retirement benefits or something. Except, looky there, that got reversed and it cost him not one red cent. Huh. I was right.

Calif passed a couple of stupid laws, which destroyed the Owner Operator Trucking segment of the State. The literally no longer exist here, and THEY were the ones taking containers from the Pier, to other locations nearby, to wait for transhipment. Now they have long haul trucks, trying to pick shit up at the pier, and having to wait...

But the Feds would not say anything, because Newsome was being recalled, and it would have become a campaign issue.

Two times in one day Floyd Ferris is called for:

"Did you really think we want those laws observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them to be broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against... We're after power and we mean it... There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted -- and you create a nation of law-breakers -- and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Reardon, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."

Rule of law. ADORBS.

Late stage COVID.

It stated that the disease was not a respiratory infection, per se, but rather an inflammatory disease that oft times manifested in pneumonia-like symptoms but that also often attacked other organs.

Essentially that it presented as consistent with sepsis.

It argued that because of that, the treatment (invasive intubation) often exacerbated the problem.

You speak truly, nurse. I supported JS too, hoping against hope and a growing amount of proof to the contrary that the Constitutional system would prevail, and the better nature of the American people would see justice done. the cowardice of the Supreme Court and the treachery of the Uniparty were things that weren't supposed to happen, but they did.

498 Everyone has certain assumptions that they take into account of how the world works. In almost every assumption, there should be the tacit acknowledgment that any such assumption is a shadow of true reality. Ideally, the shadow assumption should just about match true reality, but often it bear little to no resemblance to reality. Through a glass darkly indeed.
But, on the other hand, it is difficult if not impossible to kill ideas permanently or to recreate human nature. Such is the idea of a rule of law. King John believed in the new fangled continental ideal of an absolute ruler--he found out he was wrong but it took awhile. The Soviets believed that they had found the key to creating a new Soviet man--they were wrong too. The Brits elite believed That Man represented the future--they were wrong. Our Nat Sec folks believed that the Soviet Union would not fall--they were wrong. And so on and so on.
So keep your projections modest, eschew the victory dances, and realize that you too have a limited understanding of how the world works and what history will be. Often the significance of events and their repercussions take years later to appreciate.

There is the old paradox of Who Shaves the Spanish Barber? The answer to that paradox is follow him around and see.

That is about all we can do. Voltaire who was aware of the gathering storm in France spoke through his character Candide about the gathering gloom in France--One must cultivate one's own garden. We can still strive to see the truth as best we can and act upon it.

>> he will also receive around $200,000 in missed pension payments.


That's a lot of money coming in all at once, I wonder if the FED will track that money and the IRS make's sure he pays taxes on that windfall?

Your comments over the years have given us deeper insight.

This is one of the most revelatory times in history. And so many deny reality for ideology.

My thoughts are our inner Ur-DNA from before the Stone Age is being expressed.

533 I have a horse that has a swelling in a semitendious muscle. No lameness on that side but the inflammation stays. A smooth muscle relaxer helps the swelling but I can't find the cause. Any idea?

And I knew before I even clicked. But I thought: it might be some harmless bubblegum pop. Robert is a metal guy, that is probably why he hates it with such a passion.

Caveat Emptor.
