Insurrectionist Cafe: Kingdom of the Spiders Edition

I got you all a present:

spidershroud.jpg

Gossamer's a pretty word for something pretty nasty.

Would you rather get a bug in your mouth, or a line of spider-web in your mouth?

I'd take the bug. As long as it's not a spider. The web has spider-feet all over it.

Terrified shelter dog gets taken home to meet a whole pack of dogs.

In case you missed it: Damn, that's a good-looking shark.

A few days prior I had given my wife about how spiders are our friends because she hates bugs and they like to eat bugs.

Then I was cleaning my basement when this HUGE wolf spider the size of my hand jumped down from the rafters to say "Hello Friend of Spiders!"

I panicked, shrieked like girl, grabbed a boot and smashed it over and over and over again.

In my nightmares I can see it's many eyes pleading "Why but why?!" as the boot comes down.

I really feel bad about it.

165 Tolkien's mythology is amazing.
Consider Galadriel. She is at least 8300 years old (possibly up to 27,000.)

-She was alive and saw the Light of the Two Trees before they were killed by Morgoth.

-she joined with the other Noldor and swore vengeance and to get the Silmaril's back (remember, these were the jewels Feanor had captured the light of the Two Trees inside.) There was also a bit of slaying of other elves when they were not down with the vengeance train.

Let's take the lower number. 8300 years. Consider that Rome was only founded as a city 2774 years ago, by tradition.

Doing a quick check on the internet, they speculate that the first city on the site of Troy was probably began 5521 years ago.

3000 years older than that. At least.

205 My personal theory is that a lot of Elrond's angst and general assholishness is due to having Galadriel as a mother-in-law. She probably was not pleased that her little girl married an almost but not quite half-human dude.

Elrond basically was like Spock... half-human, so put on an "elfier-than-thou" routine.

Probably also no coincidence that Elrond built his own domain hundreds of miles away from Galadriel.

214 179 As the Third Age ended, we simply do not know what happens in the future depending on whether you consider his world as a predecessor to this one. The life spans differences of the descendents of Numeanor came about in part due to interbreeding with existing humans that had more or less typical human lifespans.

More comparable with biblical stories in Genesis than anything.

That is why I consider his works more in line with Toynbee whose works were popular at the time and influenced several noted authors including H. Beam Piper. Toynbee's three universal marking posts of civilizations had a pretty influential run especially among authors in the 40's through 60's.

250 flounder, Missouri Bullet, both BHN 12. Have used them for years, have worked up loads that don't lead all that much, though none are totally clean. This was trying to find more ways to use 700X, not a bad powder, but one I picked up during the last panic, not all that useful for my purposes. Haven't looked since returning, to see if I might add/reduce the charge - but I am shooting for the 15.3K PSI level that the formula says is ideal for 12 BHN (right pressure to obturate).

Only 45 Colt I have is a Model 1866 repro, toggle action, sticking with sub-15K PSI loads for that one, and plated bullets. 700X works for some loads for that, of course, but was the dirtiest/least accurate in tests I did a while ago.

Next came the Noldor, a name of wisdom, the people of Finw. They are the Deep Elves, the friends of Aul; and they are renowned in song, for they fought and laboured long and grievously in the northern lands of old." - Quenta Silmarillion

289 EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN SEA (AP) Britains newest aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth with 10 Marine Corps F-35s onboard is helping to take on the lions share of operations against the Islamic State group in Iraq, U.K. naval commanders said. It has also piqued the interest of Russian warplanes, who try to keep tabs on those cutting-edge F-35 jet in a cat-and-mouse game with British and U.S. pilots.

Speaking aboard the 65,000-ton carrier on its first-ever deployment, Commodore Steve Moorhouse said the U.K. is carrying out most of the missions to wipe out the remnants of IS in Iraq as the U.S. focuses on its withdrawal from Afghanistan.

At the moment, were taking on the lions share of that operation over Iraq, which is a fantastic, say, feather in our cap. But an achievement that A, were trusted and B, that were able to do that, Moorhouse told reporters Sunday.

Its the first time that a U.K. aircraft carrier is supporting live military operations on the ground in over two decades, projecting British military power on a global scale. Moorhouse said the carrier offers the U.K. flexibility in how to conduct military operations abroad

Actually apparently the answer to that is now yes. Maybe kinda. They've also added some sort of climbing competition that includes three or four different techniques. Including one that goes sideways not up? I heard it on the local news here so believe/don't believe until you see it for reals.

301 250 Rhomboid,
I have found in my reloads that neither 700x and Titegroup are the greatest powders with heavy cast boolits aka 230gr in 45 ACP or 158gr in 38 Special. I switched to Hodgdon's Universal as a substitute for heavier cast lead bullets because it shot cleaner and used light to mid weight plated or fmj bullets for both Titegroup and 700x. My guess is that the flake nature of 700x could be a bit spiky on pressure using heavier bullets and I know that Titegroup is such a powder.

On such powders, it is often difficult to get the pressure up without exceeding a given cartridge's limit enough to burn cleanly using heavier bullets. I think both prefer mid range to lighter cast bullets for a given cartridge.

324 205 My personal theory is that a lot of Elrond's angst and general assholishness is due to having Galadriel as a mother-in-law. She probably was not pleased that her little girl married an almost but not quite half-human dude.

Elrond basically was like Spock... half-human, so put on an "elfier-than-thou" routine.

Probably also no coincidence that Elrond built his own domain hundreds of miles away from Galadriel.
Posted by: Rodrigo Borgia at June 21, 2021 07:08 PM (Uimse)


When Elrond was ranting about the weakness of Men, I was thinking:

There he was way back when, fully knowing what was at stake, and he didn't shove Isildur into Mt Doom.

And he didn't volunteer to set things right. Instead, he managed the Big Elf Bugout.

327 On the pilot scanning the mini-tornado, did you notice he was over a wind farm? And almost none of them were operating? Maybe they're turned off every time a weather front goes through, but that also defeats the purpose of having them in a wind-rich zone. Put the energy generator in a geographic area where there's likely to be wind, and then shut it down when there's wind. Cool video, but you still can't miss the energy generators that weren't.

329 267 Broseiden, it has been decades since I read the Silmarillion and his other 'lost' tales. I have a old biography of Tolkien somewhere around as well as Silverberg's notes on Middle Earth. Part of my answer was based on Tolkien's lesser known works such as Farmer Giles of Ham, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl, etc. and his day job as a philologist for the Oxford English Dictionary for a time at Oxford. One of his specialties was delving into the obscure roots and derivations of current English language from the hodge podge history of invaders (and their languages) of Britain.

Dan Mitchel is a lonely guy, plagued with OCD and terminal social awkwardness, at times so severe he seems robotic.

Universal has done pretty well and I have some of the newer reformulated Unique that I use for reduced rifle loads for milsurps along with Accurate's 5744. Unique has been around so long that most older more obscure military rifles have had reduced gallery loads developed for it in the past.

363 You know, the more I look at this Supreme Court decision to give the NCAA a wedgie - the more I wonder if the collusion by the Hollywood and Rich with elite Universities is not illegal at all - everyone got something they wanted. Higher educational systems have essentially been given some sort of super moral status that defies the market rules everyone else plays by.

The colleges and universities got the kid of a potential rich donor or famous celebrity and the families involved got their kid into a dream school. You could say that some other kid didn't get in because of that, but that's kind of like saying that Walmart sold out all its TVs to the highest bidders and Joey Empty Pockets over there missed out. Sad, but not illegal - only in our University system is that considered illegal.

But if the NCAA got shot down counting on living outside the competition rules, what about the rules applying to getting poor kids into colleges or universities?

Uh, if you get the chance, mention that an untreated UTI is serious business and not to be "toughed out." An untreated UTI was the reason I lost my sister. Yeah, there were complications, but, the spiral started with a UTI that went septic.

I just watched that a couple of nights ago. Free on amazoid right now.

One of my favorite stories I heard on the horrors of making that movie was when they had finally secured the money for the thing, and were well into production when they were told the execs had to see what progress was made. So, they show up at the theater, and start the show The horrible tempra painted background and the bad French puppet bouncing around saying "Sacrebleu!"

One of the execs exclaimed "My God, they've fucked us!" That of course wound up being the intro. I love the fact they totally trolled the execs - and the audience. Talk about payback I too had a "Oh fuck me" moment when the show first started.

390 Since some of us are threadjacking for gunz (in the style book, one of the categories allowed, without limits), should mention an interesting video. The guy who does the videos for Lucky Gunner, the ammo vendor, interviewed CCI/Speer's two top self-defense ammo guys. Very interesting. Well worth it for anyone interested in caliber wars, bullet design, and gelatin testing methods.

Lucky Gunner guy does generally an excellent job with his videos. Part of it is that he's so articulate in his presentation, something seen less and less in every part of society for years. Recommend any gun nutz peruse their video list for topics of interest.

394 rhomboid, interesting, never seen that powder (CSB-5) and now know to be on the lookout for it.

I like W231 aka HP-38 as well for revolvers and 45 ACP. I hesitated a bit on the new IMR Red which is supposedly a better version of Alliant's Red Dot and found it out of stock when I tried to order it in Nov. I was going to try out a variant of 'The Load' by Ed Harris using Red Dot which is a more universal range load for cast boolits.

Recently, I have had to step outside of my usual domestic powders for rifles and am trying both Norma and Vihtavuori powders (not the double based ones).

I think they ship in bulk and US vendors package in 5-lb jugs. It's all gone at the moment, of course. But CSB-5 = Universal, for reloading purposes. I actually have a jug of Universal as my next "back-up" powder, so happy with the CSB-5 and its versatility that Universal seemed like a good general back-up. Also have an 8-lb'er of HP-38 in strategic reserve.

448 422 Rhomboid, never used Solo but I think it was one of the imported Euro shotgun powders that Accurate sold. The one negative about Accurate powders was that they sourced quite a bit of their powders from Europe and often user developed loading data had to be scrapped when they changed sources. Hodgdon's has had some similar issues with their rifle powders like Varget from ADI in Australia--long periods where it is unobtainable. The IMR line, by contrast, comes from a Canadian facility but that is being affected by Covid restrictions which is a bit different than previous crises.

Alliant at least makes its own pistol and shotgun powders in house at Radford VA and I think St. Marks in Fla makes some of its rifle powders along with some rifle powders for Hodgdon's and Winchester. I think most of the Reloader series comes from Sweden (Bofors) and Switzerland RL17.

The pilot doing the "drunk guy steals an airplane" act is Kyle Franklin. His dad, Jimmy, was the greatest. Jimmy died in a mid-air collision and a few years later, Kyle's wife, Amanda, died in a fueling accident. If you ever get a chance to see him fly, do it.

I live above a double garage and there's a wooden deck with stairs leading to the ground. Spiders are CONSTANTLY spinning webs across the railing at the top of the stairs. Its not too bad going down the stairs, but if i'm out and come back coming up the stairs I get a face full of spider web.

But if the NCAA got shot down counting on living outside the competition rules, what about the rules applying to getting poor kids into colleges or universities?
Posted by: Boswell at June 21, 2021 07:46 PM (5iUNf)

here's the legal difference - no one has the Constitutional Right to get admission to a certain university, and there is no requirement that admissions be "fair" (whatever that is). You just have to respect the big 4 - sex, race, religion, national origin. No restrictions for those, everything else is fair game. (that's why schools try to hide the fact they discriminate against asians)

The difference with athletics is that *Everyone* has the Constitutional Right to bargain for the value of the goods and services they can provide.

480 >>here's the legal difference - no one has the Constitutional Right to get admission to a certain university, and there is no requirement that admissions be "fair" (whatever that is).

There is no right to attend a university written into the Constitution, there just as there is no Constitutional right that you get must get dough for your athletic ability. But the NCAA said you couldn't even negotiate that, just like the DOJ told those rich influential families they couldn't negotiate getting their kid into college unless it followed rules not even written in some federal statue anywhere, to do so violated federal 'conspiracy' laws.

For some reason, in the world today, to use your power and influence to give your kids an education they wouldn't have gotten otherwise is...illegal. Even though no one seems to be able to site the exact federal law where they specifically state that it is....otherwise every other Congressman and Governor would be sitting in jail next to a celebrity right now...

Bribery involves getting someone to use something that isn't their's. You can't bribe someone to give you their house, but you might be able to bribe the city to do it with eminent domain. Or you could bribe a security guard to give you access to a vault.

College admissions were therefore NOT bribed, by your definition, to give something that was theirs to give....admission to their schools.

People, there is no law, no Constitutional violation, no crime against nature at issue with private colleges or Universities taking bribes to let influential kids in, unless they are taking federal funds tied specifically, and I mean specifically, to not do that...if you hate that, don't have your kids attend there. Otherwise, you could be charged every fucking day for bribing your neighbor not to have his dog pee on your lawn....
