I Should Be Afraid Of The Innumerable Night Of The ONT

Welcome to Thursday people! I hope y'all are enjoying your summer as it winds down. Say, if any of y'all are getting excess rain, would you mind sending it down to Texas?

Texas Now Produces More Oil Than Every Country in the World Besides Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq

The article is from 2019, but I found data from the US EIA (Energy Information Administration) that shows that in May, 2022 (the latest date figures are available), Texas pumped about 5 million barrels of oil per day (4,965,000), which is two and a half times as much as we produced 10 years ago. We're doing our part. How?

And this “energy miracle” in the Lone Star State has nothing to do with Obama’s recent delusional claims of his alleged contributions to America’s new position as the world’s No. 1 oil producer, and everything to do with the contributions of free-market capitalism, Yankee ingenuity, technological innovation, revolutionary drilling and extraction techniques supported by modern Made-in-the-USA equipment, and, most importantly, the contributions of America’s many risk-taking “petronpreneurs” who are the real “miracle workers” in America’s amazing energy success story.

Damn straight.


Go Woke, Go Broke


Bowing to PC outrage culture, last year the Cleveland Indians changed their name to the generic, milquetoast “Guardians”. How's that working out for them? Not well.

Cleveland Guardians Struggling To Attract Fans, Ratings After Name Change

TV Ratings and attendance are both down 30% since the name change. I'm curious, any Indians fans here? I know AlexTheChick is one, but she doesn't come on the ONT much. How do you feel about the switch? How about any Redskins fans? I'm not a fan of either team, but when they come up in conversation I just call them the Indians and the Redskins. Fuck it. (But I'm a stick in the mud anyway. I still call BWI “Friendship” and refuse to refer to the NFL franchise located in Indiana as anything other than “Indianapolis”.)

Thursday Night Question

You'll have to click through to read about this guy's hilarious adventure with the orange, but that brings up tonight's Question For The Horde™: Myself excluded, members of the Horde are generally smarter, better looking and wittier than the general public. What is the biggest “Doh!” moment of your life? Ever been talking to a friend on the phone while you walk around looking for your phone? And then ask them to call you so you can find it by the ring? Spent 10 minutes looking for the glasses you were wearing? C'mon, spill. I'll start. I wrote my name on the street in gunpowder and lit it with a match, expecting it to burn like a fuse a la Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam. Instead it exploded and blew my face off (well, 1st and 2nd degree burns). Your turn, go!


Do-It-Yourself Project


A View From The Other Side


Where Do the Democrats Find These Guys?


Frankly, her politics suck, but whoever she is she's a very talented writer, I literally laughed out loud in a couple of places.


In an early primary debate, Biden had lifted—almost word for word—a speech off a British Labour politician named Neil Kinnock. This included telling the audience that he was the first person in his family to go to college in “a thousand generations” (taking the lineage back to Cro-Magnon Biden), and that he came from a family of coal miners. That no one in his family had worked in a mine and that there were college graduates on his mother’s side of the family were the least of his problems.


Read it, it's amusing, and it's always interesting to see how the other side thinks. I will also give her props that in places she's willing to step back from fan-girling for anyone with a D by their name to acknowledge problems – the consequences of Clinton's crime bill and Kerry's anti-war lies, for example.


Tax Haven


Tax Freedom in Puerto Rico

John Stossel explains:


Want to pay no federal income tax?

Move to Puerto Rico.
Really. If you move to the island, you can legally pay none. There’s also no capital gains tax.
You just have to give 4% of your income to Puerto Rico.
The tax break was started by a Puerto Rican politician who’d watched years of high taxes fail to improve life on the island. He decided to try something different.
Obviously, it’s a popular idea, when people learn about it.


Death By A Thousand Regulations


Where's The Beef?

Noticed any food shortages lately?

What did the inspection entail? An absurd technique called “poke and sniff.” To find tainted meat, federal bureaucrats stuck little spikes into carcasses and then smelled the spikes.

If they smelled something spoiled, they ordered that meat discarded.  
The process was ridiculous. The inspectors used the same spikes over and over, plunging them into multiple animals. Poking and sniffing sometimes made things worse by spreading disease from one carcass to the next.
Of course, governments often do ridiculous things, and regulators, once they start doing them, keep doing them. The feds didn’t stop “poke and sniff” until the late 1990s.
Today, USDA inspectors do a better job. They test for bacteria. But the inspection process is so cumbersome and expensive, many small companies can’t afford it.
The result, complained President Joe Biden recently, is too much market concentration: “Four big corporations control more than half the markets in beef, pork and poultry!”
His remedy, sadly, is to give your tax money to some smaller meatpackers.
Of course, such subsidies and regulations increase market concentration.
“The bigger the government, the bigger the corporations,” Massie points out. “People who don’t like big corporations haven’t figured that out.”


How Did They Nazi That?

They'll probably claim it was an accident, but I mean, come on. How could you NOT notice that at some point during the design process? It defies belief.

Tonight's ONT has been brought to you by open mics:

(NSFW-language. The anchor's expression is what really makes the clip, however)

32 I'm not from Cleveland but Cincy, but I can't imagine anyone likes the change. The name came from a famous player in the 1890s, Lou Sockalexis, so they are taking an honor away from an actual Indian with their efforts. Couple that with Guardians being totally unrelated to anything at all in Cleveland or Ohio...

The Cleveland Burning Rivers would have been a better name.

78 I was maybe 8 or 9. The family car was dad's old 55chevy. He had a company car. Mom was backing out of the garage, we had to wait until she was in the driveway so we could close the garage door. I thought I would be smart and prove to little bro that the car wasn't heavy and put my foot behind the tire as mom backed out. Car was heavy. Not sure what the heck I was thinking.

94 My embarrassing moment: Started to put socks on to go to the grocery store. One sock from the pair disappeared. Finally just grabbed another pair. At the store I ran into a coworker with whom I chatted, even though she looked at me funny. Got home, went to the restroom, looked in the mirror and saw the missing sock on my shoulder, where I had slung it while putting on the other sock. It was close enough to my neck with minimal front overhang that I didn’t see it in peripheral vision.

100 Kari Lake significantly expanded her vote lead 20,000 votes, which is why the race was just called.

Her opponent in the general is the current Secretary of State. Which got me to thinking. (Stop laughing!) It should not be legal for someone who's responsibility is counting votes to be seeking higher office. Once they're out, sure, but not while one has a strong motivation to influence the outcome through their office.

Abdominal pressure (seems right location to be large intestine) that goes away about 95% if I stop eating beef (pork, chicken, bacon seem ok, but ground turkey is meh and if I eat a bunch of actual cheese it returns.) Tested for two weeks and then ate white castle last night to check and symptoms returned (not real bad, but some.) Localized rash on my ankle (mostly right, but some on left.) Not painful. Not itchy. I thought it was a heat rash or detergent sensitivity, but I changed my detergent to one of those 'sensitive' brands with no fragrance and what have you and no observable difference.

What was the other one? Oh, right: Forgetfulness. Not real bad, but when I was looking at the symptoms I came across that one and was like 'Woah.'

Her opponent in the general is the current Secretary of State. Which got me to thinking. (Stop laughing!)

Once they're out, sure, but not while one has a strong motivation to influence the outcome through their office.

I made it through numerous planings and deplanings and Customs and the rest of it, carefully the entire time. I rented a car to drive home the last 75 miles ... pulled into my parents driveway... stoped the car, and the unsecured flight bag full of beers rolled off the seat. $&@!!! It only broke a couple, but that was stupid.

Another time, I'd just made it back a two week road trip/hiking vacation, and stubbed my toe pretty hard as I walked in through the garage door. I figured God was letting me know I was really lucky on that trip, something like that.

Having lived there for a while, I suspect it's worse there because Arizona is an odd state where one city completely dominates State Politics, and the Political Establishment has always been a cozy little club going back as far as I can tell, to Territorial Days. (Jeff Flake and all of the Udall's are descended from powerful families from when the state was still a territory.) I think that made it easy for them to take it over and run it however they wished for decades. Now the MAGA people are trying to move in on the game, and they hate it.

My similar experience was lighting the grill w/ gasoline. I ran out of light fluid and thought I'd be prudent and just add a little gas to a smoldering fire.

Well, as I poured the gas on the flames started up and ran up to the gas can. I tossed it and flames spewed out all over the backyard as the gas can rolled downhill..

Her job was to keep track of all of the medicines the patients were to take overnight. At one point she realized that she'd made a mistake and gave one of the sleeping patients some heart medicine he wasn't supposed to get. She was horrified and scared to death to tell the Head Nurse, but she did when the Nurse saw her and asked "why are you so upset?" She thought she was going to be fired, but the head nurse just said "Oh that's all??? We all do that, honey."

322 I was a Redskins fan since I was 10 years old and 1972 until I guess about 4 years ago when the NFL all started kneeling and I stopped watching. By that time Schneider had ruined the team already from top to bottom. Now they change their name to what I refer to as the commies.

I will always love the memories I had from being a Redskins fan from George Allen, Joe Gibbs, and even after that. Even though I'm from West Texas, I became a Redskins fan because they had about 10 guys from Texas on their team neck then, and the Irving Whizbangs had maybe one besides their coach.

Pretty much else pro sports has gone down the tubes. The only one I can stand to watch anymore is the NHL. In addition to being woke, they've all changed the basic rules of the sports to the point that they are no longer the same sports at all. Sad.

I read the Caitlyn Flanagan article. She's an idiot.

While I would give her some credit for acknowledging 'problems', She flat out says that what Kerry did during the Vietnam Era - throwing his medals away while our soldiers were still fighting over there - was a disqualifier for the Presidency. And yet, she still voted for the guy - and her magazine wholeheartedly supported him to boot.

Actually, 'idiot' is too kind a word for that.

Our son has that and it is awful. Antibiotics won't help. If it and your other symptoms are indeed the result of a tick or other vector bite, and it wasn't very recent, the infection is likely lots of places in your body that the antibiotics won't reach anyway. We've been dealing with Lyme and assorted co-infections for almost 16 years. We've learned a lot during that time. Don't trust what the cdc has to say, or Mayo Clinic, either.

438 Could be interesting rivalry. I think Kuemper was just a placeholder in net for the Avs. I think Georgiev has more potential to be a number one goalie who can win games when the D-corps is off their game. Could make the Avs a tough out next year with the core pretty much intact.

Flames don't have anyone as good as Makar, but our top 4 with Weegar is stronger. Markstrom is about as good as anyone in net (usually, he was way off against the Oil Stains). Our D is about 9-10 deep right now, need to trade someone for for that 2/3 C I mentioned and then I think we'd have a series.

In WA-3, Joe Kent (I'm straight but I LOVE this guy) has made an amazing comeback, & looks like he now has a 50/50 chance to take out disgusting RINO impeacher Jamie Herrera Beutler-- one of the 10 GOP traitors, along with Liz-the-witch & Kinzinger.

There are a lot of votes still left to count/report, but Kent has been gaining steadily.

Not long after our youngest was born - and immediately diagnosed with Down syndrome - I found myself looking for hopeful stories about older people with DS.

One day, I stumbled across a film made in France where one of the pivotal characters was a young man with DS. I was truly impressed by the fact that this young man spoke fluent French - if this young man could speak in a foreign language, there was hope for our little girl!
.

It took me about 5 seconds for the thinking part of my brain to catch up with my exuberance. Of course this young man could speak French - HE WAS FROM FRANCE.

503 What is the biggest "Doh!" moment of your life?

-----

In 1986 I had made a quick software driver fix to what today we would call a NAS RAID-5 storage server. This was at the Minnesota Supercomputer Center. The server was an IBM mainframe that provided all the permanent file storage for three Cray supercomputers. It was 4 a.m., and I was tired, so and didn't bother to test the fix first. I IPL'ed the mainframe and deadstarted the Crays and waited.

It turned out that I had accidentally inverted the logic for 'read' and 'write' in the low-level IBM I/O driver for the RAID disk arrays.

Yeah.

Worst night of my life. Fortunately my boss was able to fix the zapped Unix superblocks. When he finished he gave a hard look and then went back to bed without saying another word.

ALWAYS TEST. ALWAYS.

The CBS Evening News (National News with Norah O"Donnell) reports the current national Monkey Pox case count to be over 7000 cases, with ~99% being Homosexual or Bi-sexual men.

This means that, today, according to the MSM, there are about 70 or 71 cases nationwide afflicting people who are not participating in homosexual activities.

- "republicans fall in line? is she nuts. Rs stay home while the D base would vote for, well, biden
- "A good man"?! what is she, nuts?
- I don't think she was politically cognizant at age 10. If she was, then her parents are nuts.
...

Her whole premise is wrong. Dems nominate losers precisely because their base will vote for anything. So they pick losers who are slippery enough to try to fool the other side and independent. Reagan said what he stood for. Trump too, and Nixon. (Bush was more complicated due to his dad.) The dems nominate shit, or unknowns like Carter and Clinton. They fail precisely because of what they stand for (corruption and communism) not because they are too short.

I first saw him on Tucker Carlson, & I decided that I had to support this guy.

His campaign emails, after I first contributed, struck me as being frank & clear-headed: along the lines of, "They're underrating my campaign. It's going to be very close, & I may win. Just tune out all the noise. I'm spending ever dollar that comes in the same day it arrives."

I have met, I'm gonna say maybe 2-3 dudes in my life that I swear biology completely fucked up and stuck a chick in a man's body. They were male, but there was absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing male about them. Not their choice of cars, their music, their interests, their voice, their mannerisms, zip, nadda. Those people I can see wanting to transition and for good reason. I am 100% dude, there isn't a single female atom in my body. If I was to wake up tomorrow with a woman's body i would lose.. my..fucking..shit, well maybe after playing with my tits for a bit (lol), but I would do everything possible to get my male body back. Those type of trannys I have no problem with. They usually just quietly go about their life.

528 Right, beheaded, according to legend.

Iconography is a big things for Catholics. Saints are usually depicted with the instrument of their martyrdom or some reference to their martyrdom- because many were illiterate and it allowed them to know who was being depicted. Peter is often shown with an inverted cross and Paul a sword (for the beheading.)

547 Since the Federal government controls very little land in the territory formerly known as the "Republic of Texas," many of Biden's legal restraints on oil production don't apply. Example - no leasing on Federal lands.

On the other hand, Nevada is mostly Federal lands.

Plus, Texas has it's own oil refineries and it's own ports.

553 Ethiopian Airlines is one of many Third World airlines that paired up with a European/North American airline a while back, and got financing to buy the'selves nice shiny new Airbuses and Boeings - and even sometimes have (had?) left-seaters from the mentor airlines on many flights.

Took them once, from Addis to Asmara (Eritrea, next door) I think. Excellent.

That flight had been hijacked, 'jakers wanted to fly to Aus or NZ, forgot which.

Plane ran Bingo fuel off of Ethiopia, crew fought 'jakers for control, but at the last seconds, one of them got hands on the yoke, and banked the plane left, wingtip digging into the waves. We've seen the rest on video, of course.

Forget the survivor count, but it was about 1/3 to 1/2 those present in the cabin. Not one damn thing wrong with the plane, other than brainfucked hadjis in the cockpit.

566 Sorry - but not surprised - to hear that about PR/San Juan.

Speaking of which, got a delivery today including some Don Q single barrel (2009) rum. But I started with another bottle, the 1731 Belize 7-year (1731's the name of the blender/bottler, a Dutch company). Nice. Molasses-based, column still, but still a bit "Spanish" in profile and spice, style-wise.

Someone I know who worked for a time in Belize said the doorman at a club he had access to, an older gentleman, had war stories. From .... WWI, when he was a Commonwealth 15-yr old something-or-other for the Royal Navy, fighting ... the Turks, near Basra. Now that's cool.

Here's the thing. I can sit in a sound booth, till they find the exact frequency, which they then cancel, and then I can hear everything, right?

But, I can sit in the same booth, fuck the frequencies, and because the ear is still delivering *all* the bandwidth to the brain, still hear everything THROUGH the tinnitus. Which is always there. But I can still differentiate an audiophile's LP from one system to the next, or LP to CD.

Sound booth guys hate me for this, but it's true. You can train your brain to hear it all through the fog. Bad part is, the fog. I wish it would go away!

572 Congrats Jim, I don't know what it is, but I am happy for you.

Okay, This is really embarrassing, but I'll share a big D'oh moment (and I have many). Last year, late September, hubs is sleeping on the couch and I am happily typing away on the blog. I decide that it's time to go to bed, so I leave hubs on his couch with a rerun of the Red Sox game. I head to the bathroom to perform my nightly ablutions and reach on the shelf to grab some artificial tears since I suffer with severely dry eyes. I put a drop in one eye and the pain was immediate and intense, I look at the bottle and it is not artificial tears at all. No, it is a substance called Poo Pourri, that someone had placed on the shelf. I totally freaked out, flushed my eyes repeatedly with water but the pain wouldn't quit. So now I figure that I have blinded myself in one eye, will have to attend the MoMe as a cyclops. to be continued

577 I hear exactly what you mean. My hearing is ok. Mostly. Until the tinnitus blasts loud for some reason. Sometimes i barely notice it other times the reeeeeeyyyyeeee takes over. The pitch changes too. Mine related to enlisted time. (Navy is loud no matter what you did ) Also related to my neurological issues.

Posted by: USNtakim deplorable, now with ultra maga at August 05, 2022 02:27 AM (Xllcm)

578 So I leave hubs on the couch and drive myself to the ER which is a short ride away. The Doc took one look at the bottle and said that it should never be packaged like that, it looks too much like eyedrops. So anyway, long story short, the substance in my eye contained perfume, botanicals and industrial strength disinfectant. They had to put a contact lens in my eye and flush it out with a whole bag of some solution. At the end of it all they said that they would call one of my kids to come pick me up and I was adamant in refusing that, they already have one parent with Alzheimer's, they don't need another.

579 Its a wonder I don't have tinnitus. I spent years...YEARS playing with drummers with snare drums that sound like gun shots, and in front of some loud ass amps. The high end of my hearing is a little shot so all I can think of is whatever part of the ear that causes tinnitus I probably killed that too.

Focus on the things that matter, and let the things that don't fade into the blur of time.

Is that stuff like the viagra? Not sure how that affects your ears. I figure the worst thing that could happen from overdosing on that shit is there wouldn't be enough skin left to close your eyes. lol

584 To be young young a stupid again. Never gave the loud shit i put myself through any thought. Shipyards, data center work (90 db+ for hours everyday for years)pump rooms, guns. Add in neurological complications. bam tinnitus is my companion now. Left and right are different frequencies with a tone that modulates amplitude slightly on top of the main tone in my right ear. Wear your hearing protection!

587 Life is good. Just tonight is loud. Mostly I'm used to it and dont notice the problem. Until..... One night it sneaks out like some sort of sneaky snake. Louder than a room ac and fan tonight. My old friend is back. Funny thing it never really stresses me.

ditto on the not stressing me. It just is, I just AM.

Regardless, somehow, I have the power to steamroll it, when needed. But, it is ALWAYS there, it never does "switch off" like it does for others. A constant, baseline tone, I don't even bother with it anymore.

593 I suppose I have to add my two cents to the hearing thing. I am completely deaf in my right ear...though tinnitus is evident constantly there anyhow.

I receive modest disability for the hearing loss as Service Related. The VA has provided me with hearing aids, which are a mixed blessing, as you folk have pointed out, in noisy environments, they just make things even worse. Cacophony.

An oddity is that the R. ear hearing aid (the deaf side) just transmits everything to the L. ear. Thus, a noise on the R. is heard in the L. A little disorienting at times.

I'll have to read that "How Do the Democrats Find These Guys" piece when I get to work. I'm up ostensibly to work out, but as usual at this time of year, don't feel like it.

Stirling earned his keep last night! A wasp had gotten in to the place and was up in the hood over the stove. I noticed the kitten was peering steadily up there, and I switched on the light. Geez, this thing looked 2x the size of the usual wasp. I killed it, never mind how, then praised Stirling and gave him a kitty treat.

613 I am a native Clevelander, and was a passionate supporter of the Cleveland Indians. I was present at the beginning of this fustercluck, back in the 1990s, when the debate came up in a summer workshop for science teachers.
ONE teacher was in favor of re-naming, maybe 2 were not willing to commit. The rest of us said the equivalent of "You're NUTS!"
Almost all people in that workshop were women. And, identified as women.
Now, years later, a team that went TWICE in recent years to the World Series (thus, fulfilling Major League's prophetic dream), is caving. This is a franchise that hung in there through DECADES of losing seasons, poor management, and STILL had rabid fans (I was once one such).
The hell with them. I won't spend another dime to see a game.
