The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Isn't it the moment of most profound doubt that gives birth to new certainties? Perhaps hopelessness is the very soil that nourishes human hope; perhaps one could never find sense in life without first experiencing its absurdity. Vaclav Havel

Quote II

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything. Plato


Quote III

I think being a writer is recognizing in the publication cycle there’s going to be a lot of unpaid labor and how to protect yourself so that you can actually still write, and have a life and have something left for you, which I think has become increasingly hard for all of us. To have anything left. Author, Kate Zambreno


Quote IV

“Freedom is indivisible. As soon as one starts to restrict it, one enters upon a decline on which it is difficult to stop.” Economist Ludwig von Mises


Quote V

“There’s a long history in this country of people needing to show their papers. During slavery, post-slavery, as recent as—you know what immigrant population has to go through here. We heard [former President Donald] Trump with the birth certificate nonsense. Here we want to make sure that we are not doing anything that would further create a barrier for residents of Boston or disproportionally impact BIPOC communities.” Boston Acting Mayor Kim Janey


Quote VI

If I were in charge, I'd turn the entire planet against China and make them beg for mercy, even if it meant getting into bed with every piece of shit tyrant, dictator, kleptocrat or miscreant on Earth. Matthew Noto


Quote VII

"What they're doing to him isn't right for anybody, whether he's my brother or anybody's brother. He's 81 years old. Leave him alone." Vincent Lidstone, 77, of Lafayette, Georgia.

A hard case of Not In My Back Yard. Poor woman just feels so powerless.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Crowds of bikers are rumbling their way towards South Dakota’s Black Hills this week, raising fears that COVID-19 infections will be unleashed among the 700,000 people expected to show up at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

The rally, which starts Friday, has become a haven for those eager to escape coronavirus precautions. Last year, the rally hardly slowed down, with roughly 460,000 people attending. Masks were mostly ditched as bikers crowded into bars, tattoo parlors and rock shows, offering a lesson in how massive gatherings could spread waves of the virus across the country.

The city of Sturgis, usually a sleepy community of under 7,000, tried to tamp things down last year, canceling most city-sponsored events and promotion, but hordes of bikers showed up anyway.

“The rally is a behemoth, and you cannot stop it,” said Carol Fellner, a local who worried that this year’s event would cause a fresh outbreak of cases. “I feel absolutely powerless.”

This year, the city is embracing the crowds. Republican Gov. Kristi Noem has given the rally her blessing and will appear in a charity ride. The event is a boon for tourism, powering over $800 million in sales, according to the state Department of Tourism.

A couple of quick guesses here on my part:
1) The motorcycle rally has been going on longer than Carol has been a resident;
2) She's too cheap to leave Sturgis for a week;
3) You could substitute the name Karen for Carol and she would answer to it.

Before you get off my lawn, you better not piss on it.

Some people take the states of their front lawns incredibly seriously — to the point where they'll scream at any cute dog who dares to slow down and sniff the grass.

It can be (rightfully) argued that doggies mean no harm when they make yellow patches, but humans know better... most of us, anyway.

Police in London, Ontario, are seeking the public's assistance with a "Dangerous Operation causing Bodily Harm" investigation after a 38-year-old man hit one of his neighbours with his car.

Honestly, I've never had these birds at my house.

Five parrots separated at UK zoo after encouraging each other to swear at guests

"We are quite used to parrots swearing, but we've never had five at the same time," the centre's chief executive, Steve Nichols, told AP.

"Most parrots clam up outside, but for some reason these five relish it."

Not even the USA winning the gold for all-around gymnastics lifted the ratings for the 2020 Woke Olympics anywhere close to respectable territory.

“NBC said Friday that Thursday’s primetime coverage of the Tokyo Summer Olympics averaged a 10.8 rating and 19.5 million viewers across all of its platforms, down 43% in ratings and 41% in viewership from the comparable night of the Rio Games in 2016 (18.9, 33.0M),” Sports Media Watch reported. “Versus the most recent Olympics, the Pyeongchang Winter Games three years ago, ratings fell 5% and viewership 1% from an 11.4 and 19.3 million.”

Good luck Congressman. California Republican Devin Nunes is suing cable news network MSNBC over an attack from their star host Rachel Maddow.

Per the NY Post Nunes ‘claims Maddow and MSNBC have shown “hostility, hatred, extreme bias, spite and ill-will” in their coverage of him, the suit says’

Nunes says in the lawsuit she target him because he’s “the most prominent skeptic in Congress of Maddow’s marquee news narrative from 2017 to 2019: that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians to hack the 2016 presidential elections.”

What is wrong with this picture? Countries with highest vaccination rates have highest infection rates

A series of graphs compiled by Twitter user @holmenkollin (Corona Realism) document that "the most-vaccinated countries in the world are experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases, while the least-vaccinated countries are not."

Iceland, Gibraltar, Malta, and Cyprus, for example, have vaccination rates of 90–98% and are experiencing surging virus cases. European countries with high vaccination rates are experiencing increasing infection rates, while those graphs show minimal infection rates among the countries with the lowest vaccination rates.

In Israel, where COVID cases are spiking despite a vaccination rate of 80%, the government is launching a campaign to inoculate its population with a third jab. The vaccines' effectiveness may very well be wearing off after a few months, but doubling down on booster shots may prove counterproductive if something else is at work.

Blind? He was hoping for death. Genius Award Winner.

Prior case studies have reported that sex — including the autoerotic variety — “was the immediate preceding activity before a ruptured aneurysm in up to 14 percent of patients,” according to clinical neuropsychologist Dr. Amee Baird, author of “Sex in the Brain: How Your Brain Controls Your Sex Life” (Columbia University Press, 2020). The risk of death by sex-induced stroke can be compounded by taking cocaine or Viagra before the act.

The man survived his near-fatal orgasm ordeal and was released from the hospital within two weeks in excellent condition, according to doctors.

However, he should thank his lucky stars he didn’t achieve the opposite of a happy ending, as a ruptured brain aneurysm causes “death in 40 percent of cases,” Baird reported. Meanwhile, two-thirds of survivors are left with serious neurological deficits.

This isn’t the first time someone has suffered a vascular mishap during an act of self-gratification. In 2016, a Bronx hospital worker allegedly died of a heart attack while masturbating to porn at work, according to police sources.

This guy understands malicious persecution. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Dinesh and Debbie D’Souza will donate $100,000 to a nonprofit fund that will give immediate financial relief to the families of Americans detained for their involvement in the Capitol protest on January 6.

Dozens of Americans who’ve been arrested and charged have languished in jail for months awaiting trial, denied bail by federal judges as Joe Biden’s Justice Department repeatedly seeks pre-trial detention even for nonviolent offenders. Many remain held in a D.C. jail used specifically to house January 6 protesters, creating a class of political prisoners who face an unequal system of justice based on their political views and activity. This group includes veterans, former law enforcement officers, and active military personnel.

12 So I just watched "The Changeling" (the one with Nomad). Given that we know the transporter makes a copy and destroys the original, and that (as evidenced by the holodeck) Starfleet engineers have never met a safeguard they couldn't disable, why didn't they just start to transport Nomad, cut the power halfway through, and clear the buffer?

20 More accurately, Starfleet engineers have never met a safeguard they actually bothered to implement. As an engineer myself, working in an organization that prioritizes safety, I wince a lot. Like in "Mira". They beam down to the planet with no PPE, having learned NOT A DAMNED THING from "The Naked Time".

35 So many thoughts about quote 7. It is interesting that whomever they reach out to, they can't do anything. The owner says he didn't even know the guy existed there. My guess is this is land for tree cutting or something. It is not like the guy is in someone's yard.

Obviously there is a lot more too this and I don't know any of the details. But it would be nice to think there are still areas of this country where a man can build something and live his own way if he is willing to do it and pay the price of that isolation. People live on city streets and are they better off?

Yup. Sometimes TV has to invent things on the fly to save costs, but that invention can then take on a life of its own. The Doctor's regeneration cycle from Doctor Who is also one of those things (they wanted to continue the show but William Hartnell was old and sick).

I try to tell people the following but no one listens to me because what I'm saying makes complete sense and is contrary to everything they've heard so they just null what I say from their memory. But # of cases is completely irrelevant and is no more of an indicator by its self than the color of people's shoestrings. Here is an example: (pixie will puke over this so no line feeds sorry)

# of cases (period 1: 50, period 2:51, period 3:52, period 4:53)

Here's one more slightly important bit of information: (period 1:100 tests, period 2:1000 tests, period 3:10000 tests, period 4:100000 tests)

So number of cases are increasing oh no!! What's the sample % trend? 50%, 5%, .5%, .05%

Without knowing how the number of people rushing out to get their self tested changed the # of cases is useless info. Positive normalized to total tested only matters

57 The transporter (replicator) makes clothing using blocks of raw material it's pulling from a storeroom somewhere. Presumably, they have to stock up on said raw material periodically. I don't know if they can, for example, harvest whatever's left of the Klingon ship they just blew apart.

We see a lot of officer types in Star Trek, but who the fuck is a janitor?

2) Why is there ever any conflict between anyone, come to think on it why the fuck are they galivanting across the cosmos in the first place? If anything is there for the asking why would anyone ever have to explore brave new worlds?

Like in "Mira". They beam down to the planet with no PPE, having learned NOT A DAMNED THING from "The Naked Time".

Well, you know the adventure truly begins when everything is not running smoothly per SOP. The way I see it, every Star Trek adventure of whatever series that we watch is one where something goes wrong, or is too anomalous, or too new to be covered by the book. Or Starfleet tells them to do something foolish, dangerous, or both.

Adverse possession has a long history in this country. One of the benefits is it forces absentee owners to keep an interest in their sometimes vast holdings. Plus, the squatter only get the part they have improved, not the whole parcel. So in this case, the guy should get maybe half an acre with access rights.

106 Yet another example where all the rules and regulations are mis-applied or ignored when convenient yet applied with rigorous zeal when desired.

See "adverse posession"; I don't care for it necessarily, but it is most definitely a thing in terms of the law.

Now pay attention to the current "eviction moratorium" - because, any dwelling without electricity, or running water, is considered "uninhabitable" by the local codes. Just try building a house from scratch and say "Nah brah, we don't need any of that stuff". They will not let you.

I agree on property rights. I said I would like to think there are still places that someone can live that are not private. I know there are massive national forests. You can camp in them, but is there a time limit? Look at truckers who sleep where they park their trucks, and also people who travel around in RV's. I know of construction guys who spends months "camping" near wealthy areas where they make their money.

I bet there are parts of Alaska you could live in an not be bothered if you could survive. My opinion is something could likely be worked out. If the guy works that hard certainly they could find a way for him to pay. Some people are off, they walk to a different drum. Some want to be Jerimiah Jonson. the thing that stood out to me was the number of people who said they could not help.

His reports back to Starfleet were ignored/assumed to be his imagination. But students at the Academy managed to get bootleg copies and are still passing them around. Riker, of course, read every one. This is why in "The Naked Now" it's Riker who says, "Hey, this happened to the original Enterprise!" I love that theory.

Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at August 04, 2021 09:10 PM (Q9lwr)

Property rights, Free Speech, Taxation without representation (latest dictate about rent)
Gun Rights (California where I need permission to buy ammo).
Equal application of the law.
Religious Freedom (they used CoVids to shut down churches).
Free Assembly (Covids)
Right to petition for redress (Supremes said they would not second guess executives during a crises, that the Executive declared).
Free Press (censoring some, giving those who agree with them access).
Even a Republican form of Government is now moot.

I'm trying to figure out if I have any RIGHTS left.

Unfortunately, I had to do some legal research regarding a squatter situation. Being at some place for a considerable period of time actually gives you a lot of leverage against a property owner. While just trespassing and immediately claiming some place is your home now doesn't work very well, generally. If you are a property owner and act fast you can take care of things much easier.

But I'm really surprised this old dude is being shuffled off so quickly. The current property owners must be high-up communist party officials to get this sort of quick service in NH.

Indeed, saying that was his one mistake.

In Alabama, as I understand it and I'm no lawyer, adverse possession requires that you know that you don't have rights, you do everything openly, not attempting to hide your possession, you make permanent improvements, and you have to do this for a certain number of years. 7, I think here.

204 Those countries are probably experiencing higher rates because as "conspiracy theorist" claimed, the vaccine doesn't last that long (which was admitted by Pfizer last week) and that it actually makes you weaker, because your body isn't fighting off the virus in it's earlier stages, instead waiting until you've contracted it before starting the process.

We keep seeing the claims that "less than 1% of vaccinated people have tested positive" ummmm less than 1% of unvaccinated have also tested positive. Those vaccinated are also much less likely to get tested as they believe they are now invincible, so the numbers are highly skewed.

We know the vaccine doesn't stop you from getting Covid, that's admitted by all the manufacturers, so vaxed and unvaxed should be treated the same. If you're sick don't go out, as you shouldn't be doing even with the flu.

214 Sven, in a post-scarcity world the limiting factor is people's attention and ability to endure things.

Asimov dealt with that in the robot books by forcing people to use their "share" of the goods produced, and wound up having robots use up the goods, in a way inventing the self-licking ice cream cone.

Not sure what Start Trek was doing, though it clearly has a drive for novelty and adventure.

Well in the only real Trek, the Feds had recently had a war with the Romulans, so savage they had no idea what the other side even looked like. And then the Klingons were always on the verge of war, until the Organians decided to put a stop to it for both sides.
So real military vessels on real missions to defend and find other threats was very plausible.

It's starting to get me thinking about pizza/spaghetti sauce on salad. It couldn't be horrible. I mean it's made out of tomatoes. That's kind of salady. A tomato gravy. Ok, now I'm thinking of gravy on salad and that's going too far. But tomato sauce on spaghetti might not be too bad. French/catalina dressing is almost there. Well, I really don't know what those dressings are made of but they are red, ergo tomato. I think Socrates said "red ergo tomato" once which shows I'm on the right path here.

281 You gotta have some fucking perspective.

Squatter is 81, there's no development plans for the land he's on, and it doesn't sound like he's done much in the way of damage.

So you can: (1) engage in self-help, which will get you put in prison in all likelihood; (2) pay a lawyer like me $350 an hour or so to litigate this case for God knows how long; or (3) pour yourself a drink and wait for this crazy coot to die. Different circumstances might call for a different plan, but option (3) is likely what I'd recommend here.

287 Sven, in a post-scarcity world the limiting factor is people's attention and ability to endure things.

Asimov dealt with that in the robot books by forcing people to use their "share" of the goods produced, and wound up having robots use up the goods, in a way inventing the self-licking ice cream cone.

Not sure what Start Trek was doing, though it clearly has a drive for novelty and adventure.

John Brunner wrote a series of short stories about a "Galactic Consumer Reports" with review comparisons of "Inexpensive Time Machines", "Automatic Twin Tube Wishing Machines" and maybe one or two more I forget. But one was a letter to the editor of a planet so rich everyone had a huge allowance, but they had to spend it each quarter or else it would go to the government. So all right thinking persons would want to avoid that and were sweating bullets trying to waste money. The final bit was GSR bringing out a magazine in lead plate with words picked out with diamonds to help out.

299 Most adverse possession cases involve family. Cousin Jethro's been living on the farm, which he knows belongs to Cousin Lucy who lives on the other side of the country because she inherited it from great-aunt Colleen who couldn't stand Jethro, but Lucy hasn't been back home in 20 years, then Lucy dies and her son Waylon inherits the farm, but Waylon has never even been there, then one day a few years later Waylon finds out that Jethro owns it. Jethro's been paying the taxes all this time and everybody in town thought he owned it all along, but the title and the tax records are still in Colleen's name and she's been dead for 25 years.

302 I may be finding out the details about un-permitted houses on property, formerly used for years, as a rental.
My new neighbor has what we call a back house. It was a garage, mutated into a one bedroom living space for the neer-do-well son of the renters at the time. Without, the knowledge or permission of the owner.
No permits, water and electric drawn from the main house.
It has a post office address but it is not shown on city plats.
The new owner wants to expand it because his mother wants her own place not in his house. I explained about how this came to be. I suspect there may be covert construction happening.

They didn't even have the wheel, for heaven's sake, and now we pay for their healthcare, give them land outright, help them form Native Corporations which make tons of money from federal and state set-asides, and then take shit for not appreciating that they used to die of just about everything including starvation and never recorded history in any meaningful way.

So far, nobody has been clear concerning any of this.

Herr Doktor Fauci is now ginning up fear about another variant, the Lambda variant, I was just reading.

Lambda first appeared in South America, and according to new Jap paper, nicely evades the neutralizing antibodies generated by all our wonderful vaccines. Spike mutations, you see (coronaviruses mutate their spikes like mofos, a well known fact for many years).

An actually Chicoms may be responsible for this. Peru and Chile used a Chicom vaccine, dubbed "Sinovac", which is pretty shitty -- even our vax fanatics will tell you Sinovac is shit. It's likely Sinovac contributed to the selection pressure that produced lambda.

SInovac is not mRNA, but (an attempt) at a dead virus vaccine, using pieces of the Covid virus.

Vaccines against coronaviruses are very difficult to do for a lot of reasons. There's never been a successful one in humans. If it was easy, an inactivated virus type would be the way to do. It's not, you fuck up big time trying that, and that's what the Chicoms have done.

REading a bit about the Sinovac, the shitty Chicom vaccine, it's initial efficacy was only 35% against infection and maybe 50% against symptomatic infection. A from the testing, the confidence interval was so wide, the efficacy could've been less than 0. That it, it made it worse.

Sinovac would be the perfect thing to throw into an active outbreak if you wanted to accelerate the viral mutation selection process to lead to vaccine evasion.

For straight up High Standard pistol use though, the Supermatic Citation is my choice. The 1911 grip angle is also found on my Browning Buckmark UDX, and I find it to be ideal. The more raked angle on the earlier High Standards works well in Olympic Rapid Fire, but is otherwise an unnatural angle to my hand and wrists. Same reason the highly respected Glock platform, just ain't the right fit for my shooting grip.

624 1 I seem to have a plague of moles here in the grounds of stately Peon Manor. Any of the Horde have a sure-fire way of eradicating them?

Two ways. The poison that is legal for prairie dogs which name currently escapes me

The second works great for ground squirrels and I think moles have a similar tunnel structure. Run a hose from your gas generator exhaust in to the tunnel network. Plug as many exit holes as you can find. Run generator at load for an hour.

Yes, it's sad to lose these pieces of our culture, but the boycotts aren't what's killing them.

For example, when the NFL is allowing kneeling, the black national anthem, pledging to spend millions on BLM activities, running woke commercials and even more woke PSAs -- it's already gone. Boyvotting it just means you won't have to witness it, won't support those who have destroyed it from within with your attention and money.

And he also shows you a paper back from 2004 showing why such a strategy would be very ill advised.

Then in another deep dig at the experts, notes that he was alerted to that paper by someone who was not an expert in any of these fields, but thought it was very relevant and wanted him to look at it.

He then asks, well shit, wonder why all these experts aren't the ones who know about these things. You'd think they know more than even he does.

That's intense. Despite being a Lefty, Burns' career is focused on American history, and he clearly loves America (unless I missed something in a later docu-series that outed him as loving America the way Ike loved Tina?). Glad he is not afraid to voice his contempt for Zuck and Sandberg.

Yeah. The vaccine ineffectiveness is very sad. They took a moon shot and missed. I previously said I have a masters in biochem and my research involved genetic manipulation of viruses. I know people who do vaccine research at Harvard, and I was extremely skeptical that a vaccine based on one viral protein would give acceptable protection. I do not think they are dangerous per se to most people, and actually went and got the Moderna yesterday because I have to travel for work and family. I am also taking IVM and now aspirin to prevent vaccine induced thrombosis. I'm very pissed off that I had to do it.

Of course it's mutating. That's what viruses do. And you'll vaccinate my cold dead body.

Your vaccines are what's driving the mutations. Well, the selection thereof to evade the stupid S-protein only antibody flood the zone stupidity called "vaccines".

You know what the viral mutation don't evade so easily? Natural immunity. It doesn't pay any attention to the spike proteins. It goes for the N-proteins. They are generally conserved against mutations. Your own immune system knows a thing or two about fighting coronaviruses, 'cause it's seen a thing or two over millennia of natural selection.

Don't know if you saw this, but Facebook / factcheck.org "fact checking" effort:

"SciCheck's COVID-19/Vaccination Project is made possible by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation."
"The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which is one of the largest supporters of this project, just happens to get 15% of its assets through Johnson & Johnson stock, according to its 2019 financial statement! And the CEO of the foundation is none other than Richard Besser, the former acting director of the CDC under Obama and ABC News' former chief health and medical editor. "

Our helpful "fact checkers" just happen to hold $2B in stock in at least one vaccine manufacturer while being run by an ex-head of the CDC.

693 >> chicken pox, polio, small pox...

Yes, safe and truly effective vaccines that went through years, decades of development and testing. You seem to think "vaccine" is just one thing, that all vaccines are the same. THey are not. You know how long it took to get the chicken pox vaccine to market. 20 years.

Oh, and read about the polio vaccine development. Lots of fuck ups along the way. Decades. Oh, and do you know that until 2000, the US used two polio vaccines. The IPV and OPV. The former was non-sterilizing (That's the Salk vaccine). The latter is sterilizing (that's the Sabin vaccine).

Why did they do that? Because using a non-sterilizing vaccine in the midst of active infection is stupid, and puts pressure on the virus to evade. Why not just use the sterilizing one? Because there was about 1 - 3 chance in a million the attenuated virus could become non-attenuated and cause paralysis in the children it was administered to. The IPV would stop that.

After 2000, about 10 years after there was no measurable active polio circulating, did they switch to just using IPV. That gives long term immunity, even though it is non-sterilizing.

The doctors who have been using IVM for outpatients are universally reporting that it does not work as well in early infections against the charming delta strain. The one that sprang up in the enemy that China hates most-India. Having done virus research, I am quite suspicious that this is a natural mutation and not actually a new release, call it covid 20. That might be untrue, and we will never know anyway, but it would explain some things. People who recovered from a covid 19 infection will still be immune because they have natural protection against more than the spike protein. I am not surprised the minimally protective vaccines are not doing great against delta covid-20. Argh. Good night for real this time.

695 Squatter dude...

In hard theory, I'm with CBD & co on evicting hoboes. We had to clear out a "free range" person last year from our business property. Ingenious little shelter of junk, tapped into our electricity.

Besides throwing all his stuff into a dumpster, a large armed friend of our son had a little "talk" with the bum. He won't be back.

I'll admit to some feelings of leniency in the 30yr squatter's case. If I inherited that long-term problem, I might figure, if it's not bringing down values, impeding some planned development, is septically clean, and nor causing any overt harm or threat, I wonder about... profit potential. Give the old guy a contract, a pass for whatever little life he has left, without hassle, and he has no claims thereafter. Play it up for a minor local attraction or something. Looks good on the resume.

Case by case basis.

Gooooooood night.

Oh, you're the hoax virus troll. Sorry I even tried to engage you. Go fuck yourself. How long has it been since you got Moderna's clot shot? After about 6 months, the efficacy against infection is about 16% per the latest Israeli data. You're quite vulnerable to infection, cause your S antibodies have waned to nill. You'll still have higher titers of binding-only antibodies, which may may you vulnerable to ADE effects and the 'Rona will get you even more.

And you have no memory immunity. That vaccine pressured 'Rona variant is gonna get in your nase holes and your immune system won't see it until it starts infecting your cells and you get a shit ton of virus circulating in your system.

You'll be fucked. Better get the booster. And better get a booster every 5 months. And with each booster clot shot, your chances of AE just compound.

Yeah, inferior immunized clot-shot troll. You see that leaky, non-sterilizing Moderna clot shot is pressuring the virus to mutate that spike.

When it does that, your clot-shot antibodies are useless. Now, they may try to reformulate the clot shots to target the mutated spike, when you get your 5th or 10th booster to keep those antibodies up. But guess what, original antigenic sin is gonna kick in and keep your B-cells from making the correct antibodies.

You'll be fucked. Read Geert Vanden Bossche 'splain all that to you.
