The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"We've just moved from lots of confusion where most people were not aware, could not figure out, if they were eligible for a booster," Jennifer Kates, a senior vice president at the Kaiser Family Foundation

Quote II

"Across the board, retailers are getting more concerned with this growing trend. … It is definitely a tough problem to solve, given the organized nature and number of people involved in many of the incidents," Chris Walton, a former Target executive

What is needed is deterrence. A fatal gunshot wound I think is a good start.

Quote III

That’s OK, I’m just going to do my job and I’m going to be saving lives and they’re going to be lying. Dr. Anthony Fauci


Quote IV

“I’m sure… we would be forced to have people of different colours and different sexes and a trans person – but life doesn't have to be like that,” “We can be separate and different. Our generation made a lot of mistake, but not everybody in our generation was wrong and not everybody in this generation is right. A lot of people from our generation who are being called out have actually done a lot of good in their lives.” Queen's Brian May


Quote V

“At its core, Hanukkah recounts a story at the heart of the human spirit — one that is inherently Jewish and undeniably American,” Resident of The White House, Joe Biden

The pussification of corporate America is breathtaking.

CUSTOMER OUTRAGE Kyle Rittenhouse update – Best Buy & Levi Strauss face boycott for offering employee counseling over not guilty verdict

BEST Buy and Levi Strauss are facing a boycott from some customers for offering employee counseling over Kyle Rittenhouse's not guilty verdict.

Users took to social media to slam the companies after news broke that services were being offered to employees who felt distraught over the case.


No aftercare for the employers and employees of businesses destroyed by Antifa and BLM.

***SNORT*** Say goodbye to Sitting Bullshit.

Canada’s Indigenous health expert Carrie Bourassa fired when ancestry claims prove false

She’s Sitting Bullshit.

A Canadian medical researcher who rose to become the nation’s top voice on indigenous health has been fired from her government job and her university professorship — after suspicious colleagues investigated her increasingly fanciful claims of Native American heritage and learned she was a fraud.

Carrie Bourassa, a public health expert who served as scientific director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health, was suspended five days after the state-owned Canadian Broadcasting Corporation published a lengthy expose on her background.

Dining with the Jetsons? I don't think so.

People Furious at Robot Serving Pancakes at Denny’s
It's like dining with the Jetsons!

Imagine sitting down at your favorite breakfast restaurant only to be greeted by a robot, which brings your pancakes and sides instead of a human server.

Well, that’s not exactly what happened at one Denny’s location, but to hear the comments tell it, our robot overlords are taking over — and should be boycotted before they’re serving us pancakes and eggs all over the world.

TikTok user Miabellaceo posted a now-viral video showing a robot dubbed Janet delivering two plates of hashbrowns and eggs at an undisclosed Denny’s location. The simple three-tiered robot is basically a mobile cake plate that runs food for busy servers, and the video’s creator said in the comments that a real, flesh-and-blood server took their order and delivered their coffee.

Survey: Most Americans Don't Blame God For Suffering and Evil In The World. Then again, the wages of sin is death.

Why should you give up something you have earned? "Fairness" I guess.

The United States is the only country in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a group made of 36 of the world’s wealthiest nations, that doesn’t require employers to give workers annual paid leave, according to the Center for Economic and Policy Research.

That leaves 23 percent of Americans with no paid vacation and 22 percent without paid holidays. So as you can imagine, if an employee is given paid time off, they take it pretty seriously. No wonder that when the 25-year-old childless worker and the author of this post on r/AITA was asked by her 41-year-old colleague with kids to share her accumulated vacation days, the answer was negative.

“She wants me to give her 6 of my days. Her justification is that I’m childless and don’t need that many days,” the author explained. But after telling her she cannot give away her hard-earned days, the office drama ignited, so let’s read on below for how it ended.

I'm not surprised that the Nanny Karens of the world have harmed development of children.

Meanwhile, the verbal development quotient also dropped dramatically, from an average of 100 in 2018 to just below 90 in 2020, and around 70 in 2021.

The non-verbal development quotient also experienced a similar dip, from a mean score of around 105 in 2019, to 100 in 2020 and around 80 in 2021.

The study concluded that 'children born during the pandemic have significantly reduced verbal, motor, and overall cognitive performance compared to children born pre-pandemic.'

'In addition,' the report adds, 'masks worn in public settings and in school or daycare settings may impact a range of early developing skills, such as attachment, facial processing, and socioemotional processing.'

Speaking of arrested development.

Numerous so-called institutions of “higher learning” have reportedly been offering free counseling and therapy to those emotionally unwell students who were allegedly traumatized by 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse not being sent to prison for life.

As previously reported, Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges on Nov. 19th based on comprehensive evidence showing that he’d opened fire in self-defense. The evidence included clear-cut video footage of three longtime criminals chasing after him during the 2020 Kenosha riots, reportedly with the intent to cause him harm.

You think we live in interesting times now, wait until the camps pop up.

We Morons know that if there is a problem the free market will correct it. The governments of the world can't force their wishes of a carbon free world until there is a solution. The following story gave me a big smirk.

The energy source that Germany moves to shut down, rescued the country from widespread blackouts in 2021.

Blackout News reports that more of Germany’s power is being produced by coal and nuclear fuels. In 2021, due to unfavorable weather conditions, wind and solar energy production plummeted in 2021 compared to 2020. “Germany’s power mix is getting dirtier.”

The figures were compiled by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Energiebilanzen (Working Group for Energy Budgets) and based on the first 9 months of the year. Compared to 2020, the first nine months of 2021 saw a 3.3% increase in primary energy consumption – mainly due to economic reco0very.

If you are going to gamble, don't you expect to win some real money? Not our Genius Award Winner.

A Tasmanian woman has pleaded guilty to stealing $940,000 from her employer to fund her addiction to an online gambling game that does not pay out real money.

Key points:
Rachel Naomi Perri was addicted to the gambling app Heart of Vegas that doesn't pay out real money
She admits to stealing $940,000 from her employer and accumulating $24,000 in debt on a fraudulent credit card
When confronted by police, she immediately confessed, saying she was waiting for a knock on the door
Rachel Naomi Perri appeared in the Supreme Court in Hobart on Monday, charged with 25 counts of computer-related fraud and one count of fraud.

The 49-year-old stole the money while working as an account manager at the Tasmanian Veterinary Hospital between 2016 and 2019.

It was only after she was made redundant in 2019 that "anomalies were discovered in banking transactions".

A further investigation revealed the full extent of her theft.

Crown prosecutor Simone Wilson told the court that, over a period of three years and four months, Perri made 475 fraudulent transac

"We ... are analyzing what we can do to create those incentives - and potentially mandates - for making sure that people are fully vaccinated, which means three vaccines," she said.

46 Canada's Indigenous health expert Carrie Bourassa fired when ancestry claims prove false

For the century following the Civil War, a well-known phenomenon was "passing" - a light-skinned black person would move to a different place, where nobody knew them, and would then claim to be white.

I wonder when was the last time a black person tried to "pass" as white in the United States?

Now, it's all the other way - for example, even if Elizabeth Warren was completely truthful in her claims, she thought that she deserved minority status for being 1/32 Cherokee.

A substantial fraction of college applicants now claim minority status, whether truthful or not.

But remember, the United States is suffused with "white supremacy", which is why many people now desperately claim not to be white.

Because the government controls every institution in the country who would stop them now.

The swine flu clusterfuck was ended very easily... the Obama Administration ordered they stop testing for it. Voila, swine flu crisis over. The same thing would happen now if they stopped all the ridiculous testing and treated it how we do seasonal influenza. Which is to simply inform people a shot is available if they choose, recommend people wash their hands and stay home if sick, etc.

I met a person in the hospital once who had an oral cancer -- and the odour was indescribably foul! Corpses in the later stages of decay do not smell as awful... (I would know!)

The nurses would literally hold their breath whilst caring for this person, in and out of the room, seconds at a time, often vomiting anyway... It was horrible!

86 Evening, Horde.

Just upgraded to the newest Kindle Fire HD 10 Plus. A vast improvement to the old 8 I was using for the past three years. Eight-core processor vs. four, 4GB RAM vs. 2GB. Huge 10" 1080 screen vs. 800px. Black Friday sale for a hundred smackers.

Finally, the HQ main page no longer crashes. I was right, it was too big for 2GB. Very happy with this thing. Had to side-load Brave, since Fire OS doesn't allow the Google Play Store. Been researching a PC program called Fire Toolbox that will give me complete control over this device, too, and make it a "real" Android tablet. Not bad for a hundred bucks.

Also, FJB, and Viva Tom Brady!

96 I'm going to be saving lives and they're going to be lying

Fauci is an unelected technocrat who has distorted science and facts in order to exercise authoritarian control over millions of Americans. He lives in a liberal world where his smug "I REPRESENT science" attitude is praised. Here are the facts:

(1) On May 11, Fauci testified before a Senate Committee that "the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology."

(2) On October 20, NIH wrote they funded an experiment at the Wuhan lab testing if "spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model." That is gain of function research.

(3) Fauci's statement and the NIH's October 20 letter cannot both be true. The statements are directly contradictory.

(4) 18 USC 1001 makes it felony, punishable by up to 5 years in prison, to lie to Congress. _cont.

117 What this country needs is an official racial classification system so we know who gets punished and who gets a leg up.

The Los Angeles School District set up a racial classification board (in the 1990's, I think), because so many teachers were claiming to be minority, to get the associated bennies. The board ruled on whether your claim to minority status was valid or not.

But yeah, the more benefits there are to being nonwhite, the more you're going to need a formal classification system.

During the annual California wildfires a couple of years ago, there was a great deal of snark circulating regarding those people living in the evacuation areas who had EVs, but were unable to use them because the wildfires had cut the power lines into those areas.

261 In modeling news, finally took a few minutes to examine the Hobby Boss 1/48 TBF-1C Avenger which curiously includes the markings for the sole surviving VT-8 torpedo bomber from the Battle of Midway 8-T-1 which was a TBF-1.

To make this kit a TBF-1 will require seven modifications. The most obvious is the addition of the gun trough for the .50 to the right and front of the pilot. Second is naturally removal of the wing guns. The radio mast needs to be moved forward and angled towards the nose.

Rest of the modifications are further aft. Early TBF-1s had a clear fairing to blend the greenhouse canopy in with the turret. And finally we get to those windows in the lower fuselage. Again this is all early TBF-1 stuff, the TBF-1C has two oblong windows these need to be changed into smaller round windows. And finally the crew hatch on the right side has a small round window that was later deleted as shown in the kit.

So happy modeling everyone.

Today's good news is that Delilah was, for the third straight day, Best of Breed, regular Hound Group 2 and an Owner-Handled Best in Show. With the last win she reached 2000+ lifetime points* in the AKC National Owner-Handled Series to become the first Platinum-level** Borzoi ever.

It's even more remarkable because Lila has been professionally handled - and thus ineligible for O-H points - most of this year. Her Majesty has shown her only some 20 times this year, but she's won four O-H BIS. Some dog! Some handler!

(*AKC points calculations are incredibly Byzantine within and across rules for championship points and breed, all-breed, grand champion and owner-handled rankings. Yet all exhibitors work out in their heads all those calculations instantly)

Now the worry is about government control of the electrical grid because it will be necessary to ration electrical power in the next few years or sooner.

Unless a person installs large arrays of solar panels on their home and business to generate power for their vehicles, there will be a dependence on the grid that is already collapsing under the weight of tens of millions of new people annually flooding into the country and plugging in, while at the same time, more and more dispatchable energy sources are being dismantled and replaced with unreliable/periodic energy sources.

There'd be no justification for a lockdown once the vaccine is available but many (most?) people might be willing to hunker down at home for a month or so to ride out the wave while waiting for the new shot to be made available.

My initial take on hypersonic weapons is, cool technology, but, the problem is course corrections. I want to know how one engineers the weapon to withstand the kind of course corrections needed when the target is moving to avoid the path of the incoming warhead.

322 OMG all the content!

Started reading Master Sniper, set in the late part of WW2, and chapter two has a lot to say about the StG-44, a really hot assault rifle. A couple of guys in London, one a yank, are in a joint weapons intelligence force, discussing a special shipment of these, and before their talk, the yank is looking out the window into the night.

On the horizon, a V2 has hit and something's burning. The brit says whats up as he enters the room and the yank says, I'm just looking to see where they're parking their freight tonight.

Go right to gas-generator systems. Proven to work in WWII, in many countries. The process is pyrolysis, the destructive distillation of organic matter by heat in the absence of oxygen. Coal, sawdust, wood, compost, food waste, straw, dead hoboes, almost anything organic can be pyrolyzed and made into fuel gas. There is an abundance of information on the Web, including plans published by the DOE, if I remember right. Try; The Gengas Page.

So far, they've been told to pound sand, but the idea that early treatment will incentivize folks to bypass the clot shot is just too much for them. They get all that sweet government cash for the vax, and can't stand it that someone who is actually practicing medicine might cut into those happy profits.

and this was an even higher level of idiocy than they usually achieve - here's why. First, of course it is a disincentive to lease, so that hurts the energy situation, and enrages anyone who understands how it works. BUT the rad left wanted leasing stopped COMPLETELY, so they are still pissed off that he allowed it at any price. On top of that, it doesn't raise enough money to actually be anything more than a rounding error on the Treasury accounts.

So EVERYONE is mad about it, and it accomplishes absolutely nothing. Brilliant job, guys.

408 What kind of temperatures will a hypersonic missile generate during atmospheric fight? Is any non-nuclear explosive stable enough to not explode?
Posted by: Anna Puma at November 28, 2021 11:05 PM (T/yKs)

Depends on the altitude of flight. Higher, thinner altitudes present lower drag, and induced heating. Thermal limits on the payload have to be carefully ballanced, or the trigger will not funcrion. Airframe resilience, has to be buikt in for the lower altitude flight, during launch and in terminal phases. Too mich heat either renders the payload inop, or in worst cases...early high yield.

459 A 1949 Ford truck would have had a Flathead.

They are relatively low compression, and Henry used good steel in those. They don't need leaded gasoline, nor hardened valve seats.

Valve seat erosion is a thing, but it is overblown. It was an issue, particularly in engines ran hard at high speeds like towing, or extended highway runs in some 70s engines is my understanding. Also, while the installation of hardened valve seats isn't rocket science, it has to be done correctly. If the machine shop Fs it up, you will not be a happy camper, as the seat starts flopping around inside the engine if it lets go. If you're redoing the engine or having the heads redone that's one thing, but otherwise I'd not worry about it. Amoco sold unleaded gasoline all along. They used crap steel at some point, though not in the 50s and 60s.

Yeah, one of the members has to invite you. It's a private group. I havent had fb for maybe six or seven years, so i cannot invite you.

Also, maybe 30% of the group are probably glowies, like here...so be cool with what you post once you get in.

476 All retail stores in the future will be like jewelry stores are now.

Other models can be like Service Merchandise where there was a single, well handled floor model. If you were stupid enough to want that product you would take a ticket to the cashier, then wait down by a metal conveyor and wait for some gorilla to toss your purchase out like a suitcase carousel at the departures gate at an airport.

Otherwise, the entrance/egress will be more like a full height turnstile. Use facial recognition to identify those in the cooperative database as shoplifters. Seems like a good business to design, integrate and operate the cooperative security system. The product will sell itself.

486 Wonder if they crackle when you move them- be interested what they used for wire

The wire is copper. But that is probably not what hou meant, ha! Interestingly enough, they used cloth insulation. Indoor use only. They are in excellent condition, electrically speaking.

Ironically manufacturers went to rubber coated not long after for consumer goods. Radios and vintage electronics with natural rubber insulation have to be completely redone, as it disintegrates.

I found four strings of Paramount C9 lights, with mostly japanese bulbs. I think the strings are from the 1940s or 1950s. These used heavy metals in the japan lights like cadmium for coloring, which are sought after because they never fade, but could not be made today. A few brass base
bulbs, which are Sylvanias from before 1957.

I read on one websight Pink Christmas tree bulb lights are pretty rare and collectable.

506 If i were to design a retail establishment. Display items on shelves only so customers could handle the merchandise. High dollar items would be cheap copies or heavily controlled. After payment was made automated delivery could be made at a pickup counter. Delivery in a limited radius would be an option. The risks of having a inventory available to theft is getting too great.

533 Valve seat erosion is a thing, but it is overblown. It was an issue, particularly in engines ran hard at high speeds like towing, or extended highway runs in some 70s engines is my understanding. Also, while the installation of hardened valve seats isn't rocket science, it has to be done correctly. If the machine shop Fs it up, you will not be a happy camper, as the seat starts flopping around inside the engine if it lets go. If you're redoing the engine or having the heads redone that's one thing, but otherwise I'd not worry about it. Amoco sold unleaded gasoline all along. They used crap steel at some point, though not in the 50s and 60s.

Posted by: Common Tater at November 28, 2021 11:36 PM (NUalg)

yeah, the problem in the harley shovelhead is the hardened seats need more than the .004 press fit to retain the seats, and the earlier castings may not handle that, and at .004 there is a huge risk of them falling out. I have a rear head here right now from a 1974 with the earlier casting that the intake seat dropped, and he bent the exhaust valve when it slammed into the dropped seat. Whoever did the seats shit the bed big time.

One time he produced for inspection two (2) pounds of pure L.S.D. to demonstrate his bona fides to a prospective dealer or customer. That's a lot. At one time in the 1950s the CIA wanted to buy the entire known world supply from Switzerland, to keep it "out of the wrong hands".

**********

My ninth-grade basketball team was playing a game where one player on our team who was well-known for the intensity of his silent-but-deadly flatulence, let one loose at our end of the court just as we lost possession on a rebound.

The opposing team's cheerleaders, who were nearest to the deadly cloud, started swearing and moving into and up the bleachers to get away from it. A moment later, our team bench was hit by it and we, too, coaches included, started moving up the bleachers to get away from it.

578 (continued)

The players didn't yet notice it since they were down at the other end of the court but as soon as they scored they, and three of our players ran down court where the players on both teams who were supposed to set up where our flatuator was, all ran to the other side of the court, leaving a wide, clear lane for our point guard to drive to the hoop, which he did as quickly as he could dribble.

As soon as he hit that cloud of death at the free-throw line, he pivoted out back to the top of the key and yelled out in disgust the name of the guy who cut the cheese. Our team ran the offensive, such as it could be run, from the other side of the court, leaving that smelly half as desolate as the surface of the moon.

"This is a fascinating revelation from the Pew Research Center. In a new survey today, they found that most Americans - even religious ones - don't attribute tragedy to God.

and they're surprised? - one of the highest purposes of religious faith is to help you cope with tragedy, not to assign blame for it. Tragedy is an integral part of life in this mortal, fallen world - it has always been here, it always will be here, and you can either find a way to deal with that hard fact or you can become a bitter, constantly angry person who's every waking moment is misery.

plus if the Iranians can destroy the Saudi's oil production they will become fabulously wealthy. (they think, since the 13th Imam or whatever is supposed to protect them from being destroyed the same way)

It's kind of ironic that even though we know that the Iranians hate America, we're actually pretty far down on their list of People they Hate the Most.

It goes bad, it's like some spices or whatever, they lose all the aromatics and it turns to sawdust. Weed is kinda like that. The dirt weed or mudbud might have been reasonably good 3 or 4 years earlier.

I remember in the mid 70's it jumping to $20-25 1/2 oz and $40-50 for an oz depending on what it was. There was no more lid or nickle bag. Then it stayed that way until around 1980 or so, and went up to $30 and $60. These days its $350-400. talk about inflation. lol

They've got a young girl in there who is a pharmacy tech trainee. Wife tells girls she's gonna need her to do something new, and she's gonna show here. Girl pitches a fit, saying it's not time on her training schedule to do that.

Wife says, well, no problem, you'll just learn a bit ahead of schedule, then. Girl starts crying hysterically that's she's not supposed to have do that.

Wife tries to calm her down, and she says, "I need to be away from you -- I'm feeling unsafe!"

Only time I got laps on the old Riverside Raceway was on a Yamaha RD-350. Shakedown laps, which "mechanics" were allowed to do then, under the old AMA rules. You know, to sort out the changes to the bike.

We just didn't tell 'em they had a 15 y/o "mechanic" in the pits and on the bike. But, OMG. First time ever nudging the ton on anything, and I was years away from my first jet plane ride, too. Dragged pegs in the corners, but pitted after one lap. I knew my limits, even then.

742 whig as with most things I haven't kept up, but in the Caucasus, into the modern period there was terrain-determined ethnic and linguistic diversity rivaling that in New Guinea, but not Stone Age.

In "inter-marriage" between two language groups, the kids would be raised speaking the language of the smaller group - a neat grassroots bit of voluntary social engineering.

Again, mountains. In so many regions, the mountains produce the toughest people - the Kurds, the catalog of different tribes and ethnicities in the Caucasus, and in Afghanistan (well, mountain valleys, mostly - but the mountains are the key terrain element).

Yep, one thing at a time. Most people will do far better at doing tasks sequentially, rather than trying to time share between them. CPUs can be very good at that (although there is always overhead, but it makes things appear more responsive).

Human brains are not good at it at all. Way too much task switching overheard. Makes you suck at both tasks.

I'm recalling reading something about this -- it was a pretty good analysis. Constant stimulation by smart phones and related shit is a big par of it.

The snowflakes are anxiety ridden, depressive, and have very little self-confidence and are risk-averse. They are afraid to fail so they don't want to try anything new, really. Helicopter parenting, safety culture, and all that shit is a big part of it.

They've never been allowed to fail. They don't know how to handle it. Failure is how you learn. I remember as a kid trying to new things and fucking up big time. It was fun. And having to improvise and get yourself out of a jam with no one to call for help.

You start out with baby steps as a kid, and move on to more independence. Parents and the culture do not allow that to happen, now.

And that's how you end with that pharmacist tech trainee having a meltdown over having to do something new thrown at her out of the blue.

Example. I was a little boy, maybe 5th gradish or so. I was playing in the woods -- all by myself (gasp). I manage to step in some infernal hole some animal had dug.

My foot wedges in that hole perfectly. It bent the ball of my foot. Try to pull my foot out cause my toes to dig in the side. Could not bend them back anymore. That tight bend was hurting, too.

And there I am, stuck in the woods. Will hollering and crying help? No. I panic for a little bit, then I have to figure out what to do. I'm able to grab a stick, and start using it as a little pick to chip and dig around the hole.

I widen it enough to get my foot loose. And I'm off on my merry way, and the more wiser to watch for shit like that. And also learned something about fast thinking under pressure.

765 Lewis and Clark journals were full of references about them. "Muskeetors Vurry Trublesum". Remember they were traveling in areas with huge open herds of buffalo as far as the eye could see in some places, elk, antelope etc.

Clark commented that in some areas, he thought the emaciated condition of some of the game animals was due to the "great clouds" of mosquitos descending on them, literally sucking their blood out.

I fricking hate Mosquitos. Thank God for DDT, OFF! and mosquito nets. That shit, and flies, literally drives people crazy. And I'd expect they probably could kill people, or near enough, never mind Malaria. They had some old school repellents using Pine Tar and other natural stuff, but I doubt they worked very well.

That's a big one. Little bro and I did a lot of ice skating when we lived in socal. When we moved here there was a pond at the end of the street. (still is, just with a fence around it). When it froze the first time, we grabbed our skates and headed out. Got on the ice and it started to crack and move. I don't think we ever moved so fast. It's about 10 or so feet deep. Mom found out and skates were confiscated. We were thankful the wooden spoon didn't come out that time.

Addendum to coroner's report: A rusty hacksaw blade was found near the body of the nice electrician. A very young member of the medical examiner's staff suggested that perhaps a trap had been sprung for the nice electrician, and the hack saw blade was thrown to him to give him the option of sawing off his own leg to save himself from the fire ants.

We conclude that young staffer watches too many movies. Mr. Publius assured us that he and his father lost no telling how many hacksaw blades on the property over the years. And besides, he doesn't know anyone around the area who could be that mean.
