The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"We have an individual that’s being removed from this counter-protest for doing absolutely nothing wrong. He didn't violate any laws. He was exercising his constitutional rights within the city of Albuquerque and we had a sergeant taken off of his job, gun and badge removed."Police Officer Union President Shaun Willoughby


Quote II

I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?” Willie Nelson


Quote III

I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no
Keith Richards / Mick Jagger / Gary Barlow

So the blog has been "under the weather" most of the day. Much of tonight's ONT was on the "Temp site" only to have the "Old site" come back to life. Just a tad bit of scrambling has been going on. What was once found is lost and vice versa.

Go ahead and chat. After all it is the ONT.

Chauvin jury reaches verdict, updates.

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty Tuesday afternoon of second and third-degree murder along with second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd in May. Chauvin faces up to 40 years in prison. He will be sentenced eight weeks from today.


Resident of the White House had this pithy comment, "It was a murder in full light of day, and it ripped the blinders off for the whole would to the systemic racism…that's a stain on our nation's soul."

Deep down in my heart I believe it wasn't racism that killed George Floyd. It was a combination of events that led up to an imperfect storm. And furthermore I believe guilty verdicts on all 3 charges in such a hasty fashion were to prevent the jurors from being doxxed and the Twin Cities from burning.

When do the leftist politicians start calling out children having children? When does the left start holding parents responsible for rolling over and smothering their babies while they sleep? When are gang bangers held responsible for shooting at other gang bangers and hitting innocent victims such as 5 year olds?

I could go on about the lack of an outcry. But, I've said my piece.

Speaking of policing. It seems that police departments are in a Lose-Lose-No Win Situation once again. Outcry as Video Shows Robodog Patrolling With NYPD "What the fuck is this is the exact right reaction."

A new video going viral on Twitter shows a robot police dog patrolling with cops from the New York City police department.

The unit, a Spot robodog built by Boston Dynamics, can be seen going for a walk around a public sidewalk, surrounded by several police staff.

When you hear the phrase "Cold War" what do you think of? Well if you said the Soviet Union vs. USA. You are incorrect. McDonalds, soft serve and the "Cold War".

They Hacked McDonald’s Ice Cream Machines—and Started a Cold War
Secret codes. Legal threats. Betrayal. How one couple built a device to fix McDonald’s notoriously broken soft-serve machines—and how the fast-food giant froze them out.

OF ALL THE mysteries and injustices of the McDonald’s ice cream machine, the one that Jeremy O’Sullivan insists you understand first is its secret passcode.

Press the cone icon on the screen of the Taylor C602 digital ice cream machine, he explains, then tap the buttons that show a snowflake and a milkshake to set the digits on the screen to 5, then 2, then 3, then 1. After that precise series of no fewer than 16 button presses, a menu magically unlocks. Only with this cheat code can you access the machine’s vital signs: everything from the viscosity setting for its milk and sugar ingredients to the temperature of the glycol flowing through its heating element to the meanings of its many sphinxlike error messages.

“No one at McDonald’s or Taylor will explain why there’s a secret, undisclosed menu," O’Sullivan wrote in one of the first, cryptic text messages I received from him earlier this year.

As O’Sullivan says, this menu isn’t documented in any owner’s manual for the Taylor digital ice cream machines that are standard equipment in more than 13,000 McDonald’s restaurants across the US and tens of thousands more worldwide. And this opaque user-unfriendliness is far from the only problem with the machines, which have gained a reputation for being absurdly fickle and fragile. Thanks to a multitude of questionable engineering decisions, they’re so often out of order in McDonald’s restaurants around the world that they’ve become a full-blown social media meme. (Take a moment now to search Twitter for “broken McDonald’s ice cream machine” and witness thousands of voices crying out in despair.)

But after years of studying this complex machine and its many ways of failing, O’Sullivan remains most outraged at this notion: That the food-equipment giant Taylor sells the McFlurry-squirting devices to McDonald’s restaurant owners for about $18,000 each, and yet it keeps the machines’ inner workings secret from them. What's more, Taylor maintains a network of approved distributors that charge franchisees thousands of dollars a year for pricey maintenance contracts, with technicians on call to come and tap that secret passcode into the devices sitting on their counters.

One of two Genius Award Winner stories tonight.

Woman threatened teens with knife before driving into them as they played basketball, sheriff says

There are real genealogists and there are amateur genealogists and there is our Genius Award Winner.

DAVIDSONVILLE, Md. (AP) — An amateur genealogist has come forward to admit she scrubbed roughly 200 gravestones at a Maryland cemetery in a way that left them damaged.

The Capital in Annapolis reports that the woman scrubbed the markings on headstones dating back to the 19th century to make them easier to photograph for the "Billion Graves” genealogy website.

The scrubbing left nearly 200 stones at All Hallows Episcopal Church Cemetery in Davidsonville with awkward "zebra” stripes that may cost $10,000 to repair.

The Rev. Jeff Hual, rector at All Hallows, said a woman came forward on Thursday to admit she was one of two people who scrubbed the graves. Hual said she was contrite and didn’t know she was harming the graves.

Stupidity meets the Good Samaritan. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Would you exchange $10,000 for a jar of applesauce? Unless the Golden Delicious apples it was made from actually contained chunks of real gold, probably not.

But that’s just the reward one Washington state man received for returning ten grand he serendipitously found in the road to its rightful owner.

Michael King had just taken out the money from the bank to cover a business debt he owed. For whatever reason, he was so distracted, he accidentally left his wallet on his vehicle before cranking up the engine and heading home.


"I just took the withdrawal that day, and I don’t know what compelled me to leave it on the bumper of the truck,” King told the Seattle Times. "… I am just flabbergasted that it didn’t get picked up by somebody else. It would have crippled us to have that amount of money disappear.”

39 True story, re: gravestones.
Brother and I were on the track to find my G-G-G-grandfather's headstone. Were told where it was (back in the woods somewhere yonder).
Went on-line, and found all the tricks... sidewalk chalk, mirrors to reflect light, algae removers safe for stone, etc..
Toted all this crap into the woods, and it was as legible as the day it was erected.
They sent all the way to Richmond, Mo for it (1851) and spent $8.50. (About 40 miles, and across the Muddy Mo.)
Heh.

People who care about history. God bless them!
There was a pair of sisters who compiled a complete database of all the graves and cemeteries in a county south of here. Even had those that had been plowed.
One of the sisters was a "grave witcher".
She'd get hired by the small town cemeteries to "witch" where folks were already buried. She had quite the reputation.

105 > Seems like milking a Gorgon would be hazardous to one's health...

It was an artisanal industry. Each Gorgon would milk herself and produce small batches of Gorgonzola.

While the volume wasn't enough for full support, it was supplemental income that tided them over, along with making shoes and cowboy boots from the dead snakes that came out in their hair brushes.

They also had a lucrative custom-order sculpture business, but that failed after it was noted that the models never came back from the modeling sessions.

There are a lot of movie services, but of about sixty movies I wanted to see, only one of them was free. The original Out of Towners. The rest of them, even some over sixty years old were rentals. Considering most of HWood supported the Kenyan Homosexual, the only thing I could say was, haven't you made enough money on these old films?

And I knew it was like 99.5% he was going to get screwed with the judge and jurors all going "ah shit, let this get sorted out on appeal when the professional grievance crowd has moved on to the next thing" rather than making a hard decision for actual justice.

And yet I still feel gut punched. Same thing with the election certification by the senate. Logically I knew there would be no hail Mary to save the country, but emotionally I was not a wreck until after that.

You could probably make a decent real estate investment strategy out of looking where the starving artists and musicians live now, and where all the hole-in-the-wall clubs are, and buying it up.

In other words, be a slumlord, but choose the slums with artists, not the ones with meth dealers.

By the time it becomes trendy, the artists will all be priced out. Lather, rinse, repeat.

300 I think it's funny that people are satisfied with the prosecution of the Chauvin case, but think now's the time of really nail the other cops, which the prosecution offered as at Chauvin's mercy, and this is only the beginning, when the entire case against Chauvin was that he, personally, did not use the discretion he should have. They even made the point that he practically violated department policy.

The prosecution made the case that Chauvin, personally was depraved; and the point was specifically that he violated the system!

But now they think it springboards a movement against racism of a system. And racism was no part of what they convicted him of.

303 Nice couple of hidden videos for tonight, MisHum. Both live versions.


I remember that time, long ago, when free people sat, at their discretion instead of a government mandate, shoulder to shoulder, row by row, and enjoyed listening to a popular singer sing a popular song, live. It was actually called a "Live Concert".


Seems like a long time ago. It was in a place called America. Where there used to be something called "Rule of Law", where everyone was more or less held accountable on an agreed set of laws and principles. If there was any doubt, that died today (actually long before) in a Minnesota courtroom.

So, YouTube still has at least these two examples for future generations to watch. I think if we look they still have a few more examples. Allman Brothers Live at the Fillmore was one of my favorites. Good to know they kept visual examples of adults freely associating for the next generation to have examples of what that meant.

Ziering looked at me incredulously and said, "You're probably the only guy in here who hasn't my tits!"

I shrugged and said, "Well, if you don't want me to feel left out..."

..... If they riot now it is proof that they just want to riot.

Perhaps we need an ethical Constitutional Rights group to take care of this. Like the police used to.
Posted by: NaCly Dog at April 20, 2021 09:36 PM (u82oZ)


Salty, first, all they just want to is riot, is exactly correct. It was never about civil rights, rather about wanton destruction and another brick tossed to bring down traditional American culture and civilization. Just like 1959 -65 China.
And second, an ethical Constitutional Rights group, who? If the police won't/can't keep the peace, the only thing I vaguely recall the Constitution mentioning is the militia, meaning the common citizens banding together to protect their local area for common good.

The Democrats and their barking seals in the effbeeye won't allow that, they certainly don't allow for peaceful assembly any more.

So, I'm confused. Maybe using the words ethical, Constitutional, and rights, all in the same sentence threw me. It's been a long time since it's been done.

I always knew that code. Those were necessary settings to change, several times a day, because of the different amounts of sugar, aggregate (chips, brownie crumbs, etc), and fat in each of 12 different products going at any time. That article is retarded. Maybe its just McD's workers they keep it secret from, but you literally can't run a frozen yogurt shop without the ability to change those settings at the drop of a hat.

The Vandals had something to do with spreading the genetics for lactose tolerance. But they came after the fall of the Roman empire.

It was the people who came into Europe about 3000BC bringing pastoralism and cows, Indoeuropean languages, and metals who are mainly responsible for introducing the gene. They themselves were mostly not lactose tolerant, but they carried the gene. Since then it spread massively throughout Europe. It was a beneficial gene that gave a survival edge to those who had it and passed it onto their kids.

All this is particularly interesting to me because I am one of two poor souls in my family who cannot drink cows milk since I am lactose intolerant. The other one was my maternal grandmother.

Before we had one big server in Utah and a smaller server in Dallas. Turned out that server was too small, and couldn't cope when we needed it.

Just got a big server deployed in Dallas this morning. Slightly faster than this one. I'll split the workloads and have each back up to the other.

446 Well, you Coloradans just got fooked with a new pair of annoying, but mostly ineffectual "gun laws" by your Polis-hole of a gub'ner.

Even if only at glacial speed, note that those laws ONLY impinge on the Law Abiding, and will be roundly ignored by the criminal left. (oxymoron alert)

One, a requirement to report stolen guns within a 5 day window, and the other, to require "safe storage", and boy howdy, what a word salad did they create on that one!

I think there'll be a whole lot of guns needing adoption out of Colorado, before long. And I'm willing to invest in as many safes as might be required to take in such as I can, and give them their "forever home".

Ah, yeah.

My diet plan is that I do pretty strict keto with low calories, and include regular fasts until I get a bit below my goal weight. Then I do one meal a day, then I start drinking beer again, then I kind of lose interest and start eating carbs, gain weight again, then rinse and repeat.

Probably not the healthiest thing, but it's worked for me so far. Right now I'm back in the strict keto / low calorie / dieting phase, but I completely feel ya -- it is almost impossible to maintain. Carbs are just too delicious.

511 Anyway, to continue, the Minneapolis Red Star will never report, well, maybe they'll bury it on page 25, on the mostly peaceful riots, should they happen.

Though, I suspect everyone on the paper has been told, in no uncertain terms, they're not to report anything that might bring down the wrath of BLM on the paper.

Yes, I plan on buying an electric car at some point unless I move back to nyc, then I will just go without a car. A few of my friends have Teslas, they're pretty awesome. Super fast, the tech is cool, and as long as you have somewhere to charge them (which would be a problem for me at my current location), they're pretty convenient.

521 And in a very timely illustration of just how orwellian, hate-driven, stupid, and mindless much of America is, the incident in Columbus instantly received you're-kidding-me-levels of outright lies by the "press", and of course the mob.

Pretty clear body-cam footage showing a girl (sort of an offensive tackle, as far as looks, and I've read 15-yrs old, which is hard to believe given her size) wielding a knife and attacking two individuals - AS THE COP WALKS UP TO THE SCENE. One male there joins in and kicks a woman who was pushed down by the eventual bullet-catcher.

Cop shoots the knife-wielding offensive tackle from close range, as she attacks another woman.

The offensive tackle's mother, in an interview clip I saw (not making this up) describes her daughter as some who promoted peace.

But comrades, avert your eyes from this literally unbelievable degradation. Systemic racism - that's the issue - even though we can't show you where it is or how it works or how it has anything to do with anything that actually happens.

528 Bilwis, I think the main correlation between vehicle "crash worthiness" and physical characteristics is weight. Heavier = safer, ceteris paribus. Though I think design has now become a strong determing factor, maybe partly because of modern materials (lighter, yet stronger).


All I know is that I treat Teslas with even more caution than I already regard most other cars on the road (default assumption is all drivers are incompetent, rude, and reckless - no exaggeration any more), because of their acceleration capability.

I've seen several hair-raising close calls with Teslas accelerating through traffic, lane-hopping. Like the other obnoxious reckless tricked out Hondas etc that do that, but even faster.

She is 92. Breast cancer from 5 years ago, got her. But her quality of life really sucks. Constant pain from various ailments.... and all her people (except of kids) are dead.

I'm re-evaluating our Western cultures idea that life must be prolonged at all costs.

You reach the point where you are destroying the lives of those taking care of you... when your quality of life already sucks...

Case in point? my new neighbor, just bought the house next door... She is the full time caregiver for her Mom who is bedridden due to strokes... Daughter HAS NO LIFE AT ALL. And has not for 4 years. Killed her marriage. Yet, if I said her MOM was a problem? I'd be the asshole bad guy.

602 That cold war article annoyed me. TBH, I was surprised at how impressive the Taylor machine is. I mean, it sounds like it makes shit ice cream, what with the nightly pasteurization cycle, but 80 to 95% availability, high throughput, and output for shakes and cones in one machine - well what the heck are they complaining on?

The whiners actually picked the machine for their frozen yogurt business, found it did not have some features they wanted, so they went to China to reverse engineer it and add a feature which they admit the main benefit is that it notifies of fault instead of relying on restaurant staff. wtf? Then they complain about Taylor coming out with a competition to their add on box.

This really sounds like much ado by little bitches.

Anyways, greeting old-site horde. Good to see the little grey boxes back in action, quirks and all. (now I expect a spam notice from Pixy....)

I think it is up to each family. For example, I have subtly hinted to my mom I am not terrible interested in resuming treatment when the cancer comes back.

It was subtly retorted that that would be a stupid ass decision in her eyes.

605 About the availability - it has a daily 4 hour clean cycle, and a biweekly full manual clean. Many restaurants are not to interested in keeping it active because it is not a big seller in their market and not a high margin profit (not sure on this, but when I was last in states it was all dollar menu stuff.) They make way more on the soda people will buy anyway.

And about that secret menu - Of course Mcd is not going to want people messing with key parameters. That is common for commercial equipment to have menus only accessible by service personnel. And imagine the disaster if some idiot franchise owner modifies something and people get lysteria? Imagine the fallout from that with thousands of the machines around the world it would be a disaster.

The writers of the piece should know better. These whiners wanted remote capability because they wanted to use the machine in unmanned kiosks - not their intended purpose. So now they whine to social media to get likes.

And that is all an individual decision to make. My mom cared for her mom after she was all but completely paralyzed until the health things got to be to great for her to be taken care of outside a facility. That facility was then overwhelmed and moved grandma to a facility 3 hours away and my mom went at least every other weekend to see her until she died.

My mom did not love this, she chose to do it, but that shouldn't be an obligation we as a society force on everyone nor should anyone be made to feel lesser because they don't have or want the ability to make caring for a relative their whole life.

616 My mother (born 1935) took care of my father (born 1929) during his last few years when he was decaying from PSP ("supranuclear palsy"), which did in Dudley Moore and which Linda Ronstadt suffers from. Anyways, my mother put off dealing with her own health problems, particularly severe osteoporosis and a parathyroid tumor she didn't know about. She's in a lot of pain and has really no quality of life beyond watching TV and reading. She can't stand up straight and now has to live on the ground floor of the house though she has rotating, full-time care. Her 3 kids are long grown, she has 1 grandchild and not getting anymore (which she prefers given the state of things) and her biggest concern is maintaining eligibility to be en-walled with my father at Arlington Nat. Cem. when she does go, which I think she'd rather be sooner than later. (Committing a felony renders her ineligible, IYKWIMAITTYD.) It's tough.

I know it won't help much, but it isn't selfish to admit you can't do it all, or even most, anymore. We are all human, we have our limits and knowing when we have reached them is so very important, yet so hard especially when loved one's are involved. And if you destroy yourself, others will be in the same position of trying to help you.

Same. And not letting anyone know. I was honestly shocked when I told people about my left arm symptom that no one had noticed after I was confronted with the cause. It seemed so embarrassingly obvious to me at the time and I was certain I'd be chided to go see a doctor, which I don't (well, didn't) do unless near catastrophic.

Which in retrospect is a lesson I should have learned with the months of pain, some blinding followed by an emergency surgery to remove a Gall Bladder.

628 Romeo13-- I hear ya!

I'm the "family caregiver" it seems. Dad at least took care of Mom when cancer struck her, but when he eventually got sick (that cancer SOB struck again) it was up to me to look after him. I have 3 siblings, but only one is local--but wouldn't help much. The other two couldn't trouble themselves to move closer although one came up to help for several weeks. After about 6 months, I couldn't keep doing it without losing my j*b, so I found a very nice facility for him. Fortunately he was able to private-pay and didn't resent being 'put there'. Saw him every day. I did all his personal shopping and took him out to special events, &etc.

It strained my marriage, oh we came so close to splitting!

I felt so shat-upon by my siblings-- and mostly by the one who lives nearby! A single person with no children! WhyTF couldn't he split the duties fairly?

Now hubby is ill and I'm sole-caregiving again because stepson lives far away. Hub's only sibling lives 1000 miles away... I have taken personal leave from w*rk, just to be sure he doesn't fall again...

Yeah, I'm strained! Yeah, I'm worried about losing my j*b! Yeah, I'd like a break!

It's the promise of the next one that gives many of us that hope to keep going. But seeking help and getting connected now is a big thing. Might what to search what resources are available near you, even if it is mostly others experiencing similar things to laugh and cry with. Honestly, Dementia through whatever means is one of my 3 biggest fears (MS and Parkinson's round out the greatest fear section) and so the cancer diagnosis was kind of "Thankfully it it wasn't one of those."

At work we had to call a locksmith once, and they quoted a flat rate ($75 to $100 I think) as someone locked a room with the last spare set of keys inside it (and we learned not to let that happen again).

So after struggling for 30+ min, the newish locksmith called his more experienced coworker, who showed up with a "let me show you how to do this" attitude...and then proceeded to spend 30+ minutes trying to open the door.

He then called the boss, who showed up with a special tool that only licensed locksmiths can own and which the company only had one or two of, who finally got the lock open while saying apparently it had somehow been put in backwards.

I felt a little guilty signing the $75-$100 bill after watching 3 people over 3 hours, maybe close to 4, fight with the door. Considered calling the director and getting her to OK at least a little tip, though I know she wouldn't. The pitfalls of flat rate.

656 ...after watching 3 people over 3 hours, maybe close to 4, fight ...

It's built into the price. Sometimes it only takes 5 minutes. Ppl tend to balk at the $75-100 in those cases, LOL!

Worth it to get "in" without destroying anything, tho.

657 Can't forget to thank Pixy for getting our old style blog back! There's something to be said for familiarity and comfort.

Thanks for all of your efforts, Pixy!

Here's an NTSB report on the fires and hazards associated with these high voltage electric vehicle batteries:

These things are "problematic" indeed.

661 I'm not thrilled about EVs. Gimme the internal combustion of refined petroleum! Horsepower FTW!

No charging stations near here and would need to install one if I bought an EV. There goes my subsidy savings, right? And travel still severely limited-- because no other charging stations...

Meh.

664 Been prepping my salad before I go to bed so all I have to do is add the grapefruit, avocado and blueberries now.

Can't believe how much eating these salads helps with my cravings for sugar. It's been 2 weeks and I am not tired of them! I've lost a few lbs., (10 to go) but the help with the chronic pain isn't where I'd hoped it to be yet.

Lol, eating kale was never on my to do list before!

671 friends, the blog was having big problems with DDOS and other stuff that crashed it. this back up blog was switched over in essentially real time by Pixy, who did it in the middle of her night (Australia).

That we even have a blog for the last evening is because she had got the old system going well enough to use it.

So all I'm saying is the old gray boxes are temporary, probably, based on what was said this afternoon. Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

There's so much I should be thankful for, really, and I know everything could be so much worse.


Now I feel guilty about complaining.

We would have to watch a Progda news outlet, which I would never consider, so I'm not sure. They got what they wanted, a ridiculous verdict not based on the rule of law. And I can only imagine how disgusting the lecturing from the Leftist powers was last night.

682 Shaun Willoughby should get a real job, and NO police officer anywhere should be allowed to be in a union, and NO police union should be tolerated, much less allowed to exist. Cops already hate the public and hold them in absolute contempt. Maybe without a union they will be nudged into actually respecting those who pay their bills and pensions again.

687 My sympathies and respect to anyone taking care of a parent or spouse. My wife had M.S. 30 years. I "retired" early to be her primary care-giver. It was expensive, but I know that I did the right thing. So, I am now footloose and fancy-free. One chapter is over and another begins.

I don't think select brain receptors evolved to handle high doses of THC and opioids. Problems for individuals can happen.We've had a longer time learning to handle alcohol, and there are issues here.

701 Oh my goodness! Impressive article dude! Many thanks, However I am encountering issues with your RSS.
I don't understand the reason why I can't subscribe to it.
Is there anybody getting the same RSS issues?
Anybody who knows the answer will you kindly respond?
Thanx!!
