A Well Regulated ONT, Being Necessary To The Security Of A Free Blog

LAAADIES AND GENTLEMENNN! Hobos and tramps! Cross-eyed mosquitoes and bow-legged ants! I come before you to stand behind you to tell you something I know nothing about! Admission is free, so pay at the door! Pull up a chair and sit on the floor!

One bright day in the middle of the night, two dead boys arose to fight! Back to back they faced each other, drew swords and shot each other! A deaf policeman heard the noise and came to kill those two dead boys! If you don't believe this lie is true, just ask the blind man...he saw it too!

When I Was A Kid

I learned the opening from a family friend when I was about 10 years old. He was a teenager, and he was kind enough to keep repeating it to me while I wrote it down so I'd remember, then he was slightly annoyed that I'd managed to memorize it through his repetition while I was writing. Sadly he died of leukemia a few years later but Bruce, if you're looking down on this ONT, I still remember, all these years later.

Speaking of being a kid, I was digging through some old, old, OLD files this week, and I came across this "dream house" that I designed when I was, I dunno, maybe 10-12. Couple of thoughts after the blueprint.

dream house.jpg
Right click and open in a new tab to embiggen

1) Why was I designing a ranch style house? I could do so much more if I added a second story.
2) That kitchen is WAY too small. Punch it out into the room labeled "dining room" and make the unlabeled space to the right the DR.
3) Library. Way cool. Hardwood paneling, a place to sit in my smoking jacket, sipping a tawny port while puffing a pipe and admiring my scantily clad wife basking in the warmth from the fireplace on the bearskin rug.
4) Not nearly enough bathrooms. And was I thinking of the long skinny bedroom as the master? At least I remembered closets. Wife is mad they're not walk-ins, but that's easy enough to fix.
5) Having an underground pool and pretty much all of the entertainment spaces be underground is way cool, although humidity and mold would be a problem.
6) I think I envisioned having a glass ceiling like the Louvre for the underground areas. Again, that would be way cool.
7) I have no idea what the nested circles in the bottom right are supposed to represent, but I suspect it might have been a 70s style floating fireplace.

fireplace.jpg

(And BTW, I still love mid-century modern. Maybe this is the genesis of that? I dunno.)

8 ) An underground pool. I know I'm repeating myself, but how cool is that?
9) There's not nearly enough storage space. And where is the garage?
10) I guarantee you the rec room would have been full of cabinet video games. As the Lord intended.
11) Anyone want to lend me hundreds of thousands of dollars to make this vision of Utopia a reality?

So, what are some things you had/did/made as a kid that still seem cool today?


Thread Of Threads


Folks, if you come here because this is a smart military blog, you aren't going to want to skip this link:


Dreadnought Holiday


DH is a Twitter account that likes to dig deep into the stories around historical events, mostly nautical. Things like the time he Venezuelan patrol vessel Naiguatá was chopped in half by a cruise ship or when U-1206 sank because of a malfunctioning toilet. Whoever writes it is hilarious and demonstrates a Muldoon level genius with words. For example, this is how he concludes the later tale “However 46 men made it safely to shore, and the wreck of U-1206 was rediscovered in the 1970s. And it remains, as far as I know, the only vessel to have been sunk by the captain's log.” The link goes to his “thread of threads” where you can scroll down and read all of the different threads he's done. Warning: This will be a giant time suck, but it's well worth it.


Guys, Airplane! Was A Parody


Transplant a success after donated heart retrieved from LA helicopter crash

There's video at the link, but it doesn't show the whole thing. They pull the heart from the wreck, a doc turns to rush it to surgery and trips, sending the heart skittering across the roof. Thankfully it was OK and the surgery was successful. Full video here.

Record-Breaking Voyager Spacecraft Begin to Power Down


45 years into a planned 4 year mission, the first man-made objects to travel to interstellar space, Voyager 1 and 2 are still going. They have less computing power than your key fob and record their data on 8-track tapes before transmitting it through a transmitter that emits about as much energy as the light bulb in your refrigerator. Truly one of the most remarkable engineering feats mankind has ever pulled off. Godspeed little probes, just don't come back at the heart of a giant cloud and kill us all.

New Penny Plan

Reduce by Six Pennies? Rand Paul Promises a Plan to Save America’s Budget


I remember the original “penny plan”. Now it's a six-penny plan. And it makes sense. None of that matters. Shaving six cents off of every dollar the Federal Government spends could balance the budget in 5 years and pay off a huge chunk of the debt in 15. They'll never do it. They are institutionally incapable of even considering shrinking the budget, they'd try to breathe water first. I could do it. You could do it. The government? No chance in hell. (Cue Monty's Doom posts)


Doom, Part II


A Tyranny Brews In Washington

This is a variation on a theme to chill speech that the ruling class and party don’t like. This administration has already asked the private sector to be its agent in censorship. Before that, congressional Democrats were using hearings “to exert control over the content on these online platforms,” independent journalist Glenn Greenwald wrote last year, because they wanted the country to believe that “misinformation and disinformation” was “plaguing online platforms.”

The First Amendment doesn’t specify what speech can and cannot be uttered, and says no law can be made to abridge it. The Democrats want to circumvent this protection by using the executive branch and private companies to purge opinions, comments, and information that threaten their power. We make no apologies in saying that this is tyranny.

Saying The Quiet Part Out Loud


Can Ron DeSantis Displace Donald Trump as the G.O.P.’s Combatant-in-Chief?

The article is from the New Yorker, but what I found most interesting was this passage:

"There was always an element of the Republican Party that was batshit crazy,” Mac Stipanovich, the chief of staff to Governor Bob Martinez, a moderate Republican, told me. “They had lots of different names—they were John Birchers, they were ‘movement conservatives,’ they were the religious right. And we did what every other Republican candidate did: we exploited them. We got them to the polls. We talked about abortion. We promised—and we did nothing. They could grumble, but their choices were limited.

“So what happened?” Stipanovich continued. “Trump opened Pandora’s box and let them out. And all the nasty stuff that was in the underbelly of American politics got a voice. What was thirty-five per cent of the Republican Party is now eighty-five per cent. And it’s too late to turn back.”


“He just...said it out loud. 50+ years of gaslighting our base and he just...said it out loud” - GOPe, probably

Survival Tips


Most Important Survival Facts Its Never Too Late To Learn

From “Don't punch a shark in the nose” to “Dandelions are edible”, it's a mixed bag. Some good stuff in there, however.


Question Of The Day

What is something that you do that almost nobody else does, but it makes perfect sense. I'll start. I eat baked potatoes with a spoon. After you've mixed in all the butter, salt, pepper and other good stuff, you're scooping that delicious potato flesh into your mouth. Why not use the utensil that is a scoop? Everyone else seems to use their fork, however. Any of you have something similar that you seem to be the only one doing?

18 Regarding the top side bar item, I doubt the Supremes are going to issue 9 decisions tomorrow. At the end of each week they normally note that Monday is going to be order issuing day, because they do that every Monday. They don't usually update that they are issuing decisions on a day until the day before. I suspect we'll get 4 or 5 decisions tomorrow and the last 4 or 5 on Monday.

Hopefully Dobbs will be last on Monday, which will give Catholics one more Sunday for us to enjoy our churches before the Night of Rage lunatics try to burn them a down. Also, that gives Catholics another weekend to arm up to defend those same churches.

31 > Video from a robbery. The robber is hit immediately, and not just a glancing wound, it's an arterial shot. And he still keeps fighting and stays mobile for a good 20 seconds before he does the right thing and lays down and dies.

This is why I push back hard when someone repeats Fudd lore like, "People shot with a .45 tend to stay down." You need to be mentally prepared for a battle for your life and stay in the fight all the way through. If you hit your target and are shocked your .45 doesn't instantly put the goblin down, you might be distracted and discouraged.

Put rounds in the t zone, center mass, and shoot until the threat is stopped.

34 Little Scarlett was up on her feet today and doing very well after her surgery. That's 2 of 3. The third one will be toward the end of the year and will be the "Double Switch Heart Surgery" in which, terrifyingly, the surgeons will go in and switch around several of her arteries and also cut into one of her atria (atriums?) in order to redirect her blood flow so her proper ventricle is pumping out to the body properly. So that's in her future.

It's amazing what medicine can do when it is based on reality and science and not psychosis, politics and feeeeelllzzz.

85 When I was 13 I drew up a subterranean, multi-level complex I called "Meta-Center".

It was more along the lines of a Bondian Evil Overlord's Lair, with rocket launchers, a submarine pen, gun ranges, artillery emplacements, a bowling alley (!!!), a theater, race track, etc, etc.

You name it, that place had it. Come to think of it, I still want to live there.

89 Desantis or Trump displacing the other doesn't make a rats ass difference. It'll be a miracle if Trump isn't in jail or dead by 2024. If the Democrats were to screw up on committing enough fraud against Desantis and by some miracle he were to win......if he gets in and tries to clean house on the deep state he'll go to jail for insurrection or coup. Same thing would have happened to Trump if he'd have tried to clean house. I think he got out of the Oval Office without getting arrested then by the skin of his teeth. What we are seeing with arrests lately is the real thing and the start of many more to come.

101 Arterial Guy is why you keep shooting to stop the threat, until the threat is stopped.

That's a video that every self-defense advocate needs to watch, watch again, and internalize the lessons therein.

Shoot till the threat stops threatening. And never trust that they're rendered benign, based on an initial action or momentary retreat. Once you're plunged into the realm of deadly force, you're in it to win it, you're in it for keeps.

Never give the other S.O.B. a break or an even chance. He's trying to kill YOU. Be polite, and do kindly first return the same favor, more rapidly and accurately than he might enjoy.

I'm borderline there myself, similar to how I think everyone should be required to ride a moped for three months, then a motorcyle for six months, and THEN they can sit for a car driver's license (that is more than "can you parallel park and write a check, but that's another discussion).

I'd be receptive to something like "your home is required to have at least one semi auto .22 rifle in good working order at a minimum. You don't have to shoot anyone who is trying to rape you or your wife if you don't want to. That's your business. But, per your constitutional duties as an American, you are required to own a rifle if you are an able bodied man or woman."

108 I grew up watching my Dad engineer airports all over Alaska, so I used to take old drawing paper and make runways out of them. Complete with little blue lights (crayons), control tower (often Lincoln logs but eventually Legos), cross runways, the works. I did a lot of hand drafting for the old man, too, so if you need any trusses designed and drawn, I'm your huckleberry. How in hell I ended up as an architect instead of an engineer is a mystery.

118 Trump opened Pandora’s box and let them out.

From 1980-1996ish the Republicans did things their voters wanted. They didn't always win, they weren't always smart in how they fought, and sometimes they were rank cowards but you could regularly see real political fights.

By 2000 though all that went away. Even with Republicans nominally controlling all three branches of government things only went in one direction...left.

I've said this before, but I think a core part of it is Dennis Hastert. The most powerful Republican in DC was known to be a pedo by the left, and they decided to NOT go public with it. There is only explanation for that.

139 Also from the listicle, concerning hypothermia treatment:
"This is only the right course of action in instances where the clothing has become wet, otherwise, you are far better off staying clothed and huddling."

Also wrong. The point of taking off the clothes of the person experiencing hypothermia and a rescuer is that clothes are insulators, and if you're desperate enough to be doing this, you need to dump as much body heat into the person as possible as quickly as possible.

Yes, take off their clothes if they are wet, as you are wasting energy trying to warm the person if the clothes are wet - but that's true even if you're warming the victim in front of a nice roaring campfire or desperately cuddling a large, hairy, naked man to survive.

When I first started reading about the Lewis and Clark expedition, one of the most fascinating bits to me was an encounter they had with a grizzly on the upper Missouri. Shot it six times, almost point-blank, and only succeeded in making it mad. Jumped into the river after one of the men, and would have gotten him if someone else hadn't gotten a very lucky shot straight through the head.

159 There are both black and grizzly bears in Anchorage. Most of the time this is not an issue. The bears hang around the creeks and eat fish, and in the spring, they eat baby moose. Had a lovely big black mama with three cubs outside the office today. She goes right over the barbed wire on the top of a 6 foot fence with her babies in tow. Bears, mostly, don't give one crap, although they have been known to leave one in my back yard.

I don't think they'll all win in November. I do very much think that enough doubt was sown in 2020 that they can contest any loss and people will be receptive to their complaints because they managed to get Republicans to make the (very valid) case that elections were rigged. It's neat how that's going to work, too.

And I absolutely believe there will be more arrests. They're moving on to wrongthink now.

JUMPING INTO WATER FROM A TALL HEIGHT CAN BE DEADLY


We routinely jumped from much greater heights than 25 feet that the link mentions when swimming in rock quarries as a youth.

I once jumped about 50-60 feet off of a dam, which was the only incident resulting in trauma.

Let's just say that I will never be a fan of enemas after that fateful day.

The bit about getting out of a car submerging... not really what the advice is. It's only if you're already submerged that you wait for the water to get into the car. Also, it's not just a piece of advice - you WON'T BE ABLE TO get the car doors open in all likelihood if you're submerged.

The best piece of advice on that whole thing is to 1) never drive your car into the lake, and 2) get out early, and 3) carry one of those window shattering punches.

No western white guy had ever seen one. They had been regaled with "tall tales" for several months by the various tribes and nations they met along the way, every day on the way up the Missouri starting at St. Louis, and they thought it was all bullshit.

Besides, what animal could possibly stand up to trained infantrymen? No, those Indians are prone to exaggeration, thinking went, obviously. No bear could stand up to aimed rifle fire en masse.

228 One of the more famous Lewis and Clark Journal entries, Lewis was looking for botanical specimens or something, and a huge Grizzly had snuck up on him, to within 10 or 15 paces.

He goes on to describe how he raised his rifle to shoot it, but simultaneously recalled he hadn't reloaded it from a shot he'd taken earlier. In those days, they were single shot rifles, and were laboriously slow to reload, took about 15 seconds if you had everything ready.

So he took off running, and probably still holds a land speed record for a cracker from Virginia. Yeah, he ended up jumping in the river. "I told myself afterward I would never again allow my rifle to be uncharged again except for the time it took to reload her". Oops!

Lewis also fell off a cliff early on, barely saved himself. Another guide shot him in the ass, thinking he was an Elk. He had a rough time of it, I think.

244 Modern politicians want nothing above them.

Doing a blog post on the patriotic hymn America (you probably know it as “My Country, ’Tis of Thee”—its title appears nowhere in the lyrics) and when I saw that it refers to “fathers” I thought, I wonder if anyone’s tried to bowdlerize it?

Seemed unlikely, but I went to Hymnary.org and used its side-by-side comparison with some of the modern hymnals, and the only one I found that changed the lyrics did so in a very odd way. It kept the first one, “Land where my fathers died”, but changed “Our fathers’ God to thee” to “Our sovereign God to thee”.

A quick Internet search indicates the lyrics have found their way into only a handful of Baptist churches.

245 Nice to hear about the gun decision. All of the Midwest lives in the shadow of Chicago, so I well remember how their may-issue policy hinged on whether one had local political clout and/or paid off the right city official.

I'm ambivalent about abortion so not terribly concerned about the likely Roe reversal beyond its potential for ultraviolence in and around the donkey barns and my general tendency to favor letting the states decide this sort of thing. But it's nice to see Mr. Overton bouncing back a bit, and also very telling that so many self-styled leaders of American conservative thought are now denigrating their own ostensibly deeply-held causes because someone not of their clique had the gall to drive tangible action on said causes. The breakup of the two-party system can't happen soon enough.

People handle disappointment by assuming the worst that has happened is an appropriate trend and extrapolate that into the future. They react to failures to predict negative outcomes much more severely than positive ones and as a result, will settle into more and more negative views. It's like applying game theory to your own perception and awareness of your surroundings.

"Ok self, I trusted you to perceive the state of things correctly but you lied and it was much worse so now I'm going adopt more negative views regardless of any rational analysis of my environment because I don't trust my awareness anymore."

I imagine this is often a winning strategy for survival. But it eats at our souls.

275 Clark had some spelling issues. He spelled Sioux 27 different ways in his journal (none of which were correct). He also spelled ocean two different ways (both wrong) in the same line. This makes his journals the best evidence that Sacagawea's name had a hard G - he spells her name Sacacawea, Sakakawea, etc., but NEVER Sacajawea. Trust me, if that man could have gotten a J in there, he'd have done it. He spelled her husband's name "Sharbono" (Charbonneau).

Granted, this was before spelling was standardized, so the concept of "correct" spelling didn't exist yet. BUT STILL.

I cut the corners as much as possible when making a left turn.

Almost every driver I see makes left turns like they are hugging an invisible sharp-cornered curb. I don't get it. I cut the corners as much as possible - it is a shorter distance and I can maintain a higher speed on that wider-radius curve. It only saves a drop of gas and a second or so - but that all adds up over time.

307 What did the phrase "well regulated militia" mean to the writers of the constitution? Posted by: All Hail Eris, Analog Hipster

Rubbing my two pennies together...

The base predicate is the right to own arms is beyond the reach of government. Period. With that in mind, the right to of the citizens to form a militia does not come from being formed and then controlled by the by government, rather it is a logical outcome of the citizens banding together to defend their God given inalienable rights when the government or invaders start acting like totalitarian assholes. The Left never gets this because they begin with the predicate is there are no rights, just privileges doled out or pulled back by a government. This is something I believe is the historical context here and is something the Founding Fathers clearly understood from first hand experience.

313 Something I do that almost no one else does but it makes perfect sense: Describe a road in terms of the number of lanes in which I can drive, not the total number of lanes. So when I say I am driving on a four-lane highway, I mean a road with four lanes in my direction of travel. The number of lanes going the other way is irrelevant because I can't drive in them - and in Houston, the two numbers are not necessarily equal. If I told you 45 by my old house was a seven-lane highway or that West Alabama was a three-lane road, that doesn't tell you how many lanes you can drive in, which is typically the relevant piece of information.

This is true. One of the reasons we know there was massive ballot stuffing if the number of votes just for Biden when there were competitive House races as well. That means they didn't want to get caught voting for House candidates in the wrong district.

The thing about Biden that many overlook is that before this presidentin' gig he never *had* to be smart, or appear so. He just had to show up in the occasional Senate photo as a reminder of his continued existence while doing dirty deals with the corporate frenz in the notorious corpo tax haven that is Delaware.

All that time in DC and I struggle to think of even a single piece of major legislation that he took the lead on. Even Donkey-Chompers has a better track record, and in just a couple of years.

Heh. Here in the Northern AZ rural town of Prescott, we have a neighbor who opened a succesful Italian restuarant about 3 years ago called Limoncello's. We finally visited it for dinner, and it was very good -- and learned that the Limoncello drink alone is a "digestif" (to be served after dinner) as opposed to an apertif (to be served before dinner).

I'm an independent (medical courier) federal contractor and the company I work for had to institute a 5 cent/mile stipend after gas went over $4/gallon as people started quitting. I'm now paying close to 150% more (out of my own pocket) for gas, and the stipend only covers half of that.

Once gas goes to $10.00 gallon, if the company doesn't increase the stipend, they'll have no drivers -- including me.

I think you may be conflating WWII and Korean War Jeeps. The two common Jeeps of WWII were the MB, made by Willys, and the GPW, made by Ford. The GPWs were basically Ford-built copies of the Willys, but had lots of Ford-branded parts on them, and there were some detail differences in how they were built. Both had fixed tailgates, IIRC.

By the Korean era, Ford had gotten out of the Jeep business, and Willys was the sole supplier. They had begun building CJ's (civilian Jeeps) in 1946, and the Korean War Jeeps had many of the CJ features, like a hinged tailgate, IIRC. They were M38's, and then the M38A1 came along, with an F-head engine, necessitating a taller hood. And they had 24 volt electrics, IIRC.

473 I recall thinking the original Top Gun was cheesy when I saw it. Also, the military/scenario stuff, very dumbed down to the point of being comical. Several guys I knew at the time went on and on about it. Two of them became senior - very senior, top, you know their names - national security people. Sad!

High school water polo team played our last month or so at the pool where the "graduation" scene in Top Gun was shot. Secret factor - unheated. We beat two superior visiting teams thanks to the cold, and made the county playoffs (where we were crushed). Pool's still there, haven't been inside but last time drove by there was some change to the exterior.

474 DangerGirl I've been making meyer limoncello for years using fruit from a tree in the yard (mature tree, 30+ years old). It's fantastic. Better than any "real" limoncello I've ever had, at least for me. Different. I was thinking of planting a Santa Theresa lemon tree, the kind I think mostly used to make limoncello in Italy, and if I ever get around to the major back yard reform project, I might.

Posted by: rhomboid at June 24, 2022 12:26 AM (OTzUX)



Lovely! My Meyer is in a container because we live in a colder zone so she goes in a greenhouse in the winter. This past winter we were trying to figure out how to regulate the temp so we had no fruit. She bloomed a few times in the past two months, but then we had a few nights that went below 50 so she dropped most of her fruit. I'm hoping that she'll bloom again...right now she has one mature fruit she held plus a bunch of babies that are questionable. It's been a tough year!

481 Meant to say these two friends loved Top Gun, didn't find any of it cheesy or stupid. And rose to the very top of the pile.

Once met a few German tourists who had a good idea - they were touring the San Diego area for the first time, and they were going to every Top Gun exterior location. Excellent way to see a lot of the nicer areas, good idea.

Best one - since least known/promoted but really one of the nicest spots - is the tip of Pt. Loma, the Coast Guard property which in the film is the home of the senior officer who reveals Maverick's dad's Vietnam story to him. Of course no nasal radiator ever lived there (nobody actually lives there, I don't think), but good location choice.

Which property was actually the quarters* of the Senior Chief (NCOIC) of the detachment, who's daughter was my 9th grade sweetheart of the time. I used to ride my bicycle from Kearny Mesa down to that tip of Point Loma, a bit beyond the Ballast Point Submarine Base.

Riding THERE, was the easy part. Going back home, was a totally exhausting, uphill grind.

And that is just plain ridiculous, since tsunamis are the result of earthquakes, which are themselves driven by plate tectonics, which are not a function of climate. Indeed, climate is affected by plate tectonics, since circulation of ocean currents is controlled by where the land masses are.

506 When I was a kid, I really loved and longed for an M-1 Carbine. I bought a Crossman BB Gun in the M-1 Carbine style and shot cicadas out of tress - I became a decent shot doing this. I grew up and loved the gun but it went away and settled in the back of my head. Then, maybe ten years ago I discovered the Civilian Marksman Program. I bought two Garands (Which have since been tragically lost in a boating accident) but was sad to see that Carbines were history. One day, an email from them said they were getting some Carbines from Korea. Limited inventory, rack grade or worse, no choice in selection and you'd have to enter a lottery for one. I did so, and one day long after I gave up, an email: My Carbine was application was being processed. She is Winchester, 1945 receiver. Standard Products Rebuild 1949. She shoots like a dream. At least she did before also being lost in yet another, tragic boat accident.

Ask Rhomboid about any bicycle ride between Kearny Mesa and Point Loma. Better than 18 mi., each way, and less than 1/4 of that as level ground.

Even on the downhill side, there's deep canyon uphills with which to contend, and they are NOT wee hills. On the uphill side? Tour de France would envy some sections, I think. There is a reason that when I graduated H.S. in '76, I could not wear Levi's 501s. Legs would not fit into them.

At a 2006 Kim duToit "Shooting Fiesta" in Ennis, TX, I shot my fastest ever split time with a Colt 1991 A1 Commander. Two shots, center mass, "figure 8" overlap.

Split time. 0.11 seconds. My fastest, normal splits are in the 0.2x ranges. The Rangemaster had to read the screens on his PACT timer, just to even believe that I'd fired TWO shots, that sounded as one. Even to me. This is when a well tuned 1911 shows what it can do vs. the striker-fired gang. There's NO WAY a Glock trigger, even with all the Apex trickery, resets for a 0.11 split time. 2/3 of a Mozambique, to be sure. But a definitive 2/3, at that!

Maybe had the chance to ask, but didn't.

I did meet the youngest U-boat commander, who made the wise decision to run his boat aground in the final days of the war rather than sacrifice himself and his men for nothing. I think he was 19 at the time.

Now my Mum never learnt to speak English at all well. At one stage she had a local Black man as a house servant (they never lasted long with Mum) so he applied the polish to the floor. Mum complained to Dad that this man was using petrol instead of paraffin (kerosene) to dilute the wax polish when it hardened in the can. In Italian kerosene is 'petrolio' but the servant understood 'petrol'. More laughter.

548 Kptlt Karl-Adolf Schlitt decided at 200ft to take a dump without consulting the seaman who was trained in the proper use of the toilet, something went kaput during the complicated operation - think Dr. Floyd in 2001 consulting the instructions for the Zero-G toilet, the specialist did arrive and then turned the wrong valve.

Cats and dogs living together would be less of a disaster than of an emergency blow directly under a Coastal Command aircraft who decided to take an explosive dump on the U-boat which then resulted in heavy damage forcing the crew to scuttle their boat.

I wonder what Schlitt's fitness report read after this craptastic fiasco.

You must be so very YOUNG.

Schlitz Beer was about the finest beer in America, until the mid-1970s, when the heirs to the fortune tried "Robert McNaMara" type "studies" to increase productivity" in the brewery. Recipes went to shit, along with the flavor and market share.

But pre-mid 1970s, it was THE flavor that Americans called "Beer", more than any other of it's time. Sadly, the olde recipes and processes seem to have been lost to time. The best efforts of Schlitz to "restore" since then, have all failed. ONLY the current production of Hamm's Beer, retains the olde recipes in the original breweries. Cheap? Yep. Good? Yep.

Mostly flat, spectacular weather (even by local standards).

Surprised to see the salt plant still working. Nothing happening up in SEAL country, no classes visible out doing anything. Also no ships burning at 32nd Street, so there's that.

619 I'll see your Land of Sky Blue Waters and raise you the Land of Pleasant Living. Natty Boh, before it got bought out by Heidleman and turned into mass market swill.

They had a top shelf version, Natty Pre (National Premium), The Pride Of Baltimore.

tinyurl.com/2p86kbwk

There have been various attempts to bring it back, one brewery or another has always supposedly just bought the original recipe and is about to produce it, but nothing ever happens. I'd pay real money for an ice cold 6 of Natty Pre, or even a 6 of original recipe Natty Boh for that matter.

Ahh well, sometimes the past must remain the past. There is no way either of them could live up to the rose colored mug of my memory.

I think I'm over the cold or minor infection I've had this week. Downside: I should really go into work today. Seems silly to do that on a Friday, don't it? Maybe I can get away with one more day. After all, I am still coughing a bit more than usual. . . .

I liked the survival tips article a lot.

As for the house layout, I liked that too. I designed a 2 or 3 story home for one of my fictional detectives when I was about 14. Some of its ground floor layout owed a bit to Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe; some to the ground floor of my elementary school. (Hey, your output is derived from your input, right?)

733 Update on the Crazy Black Kitten, aka Stirling: Once again this morning he leapt onto the bed when he heard me stir, crept up to my neck, and began nuzzling and kneading me as though trying to get milk. This kitten really thinks I'm his mother. Of all my cats, the only one who ever did anything similar was little elderly Oreo. Marie the smart black cat did the kneading thing -- she practically punched you with her paws -- but not the nuzzling.

I'm using the time as an opportunity to repeat his name, so he'll connect the sounds with a happy time. He seems a pretty sharp cat, but I don't know if he's gotten his name yet.

Some are swifter than others. Marie had had a previous human before she came to Linda; 99% her name then wasn't "Marie-Antoinette." Yet she knew it so well she responded to it if a TV character spoke the words. And big black Wolf was "Midnight," and yet (at age 1.5 years) he took to his new name without difficulty.

I use Stirling's name when I call him for meals and when I'm petting him. If he does something wrong (nn times daily), I yell "NO!", but I never use his name then.

Why do you need guns?
Why do you need big cars?
Why do you need big houses?
Why do you need big plots of land?

They never say 'Why do you work so much harder than us and have far fewer holidays?'

I looked it up. There are some insectivores with toxic saliva, and some slow lorises too. But mammals are generally able to kill more quickly with teeth and claws and don't need venom, which takes some time to work.
