I Don't Know What To Do With Those Tossed Salads And ONTs

Welcome to Thursday night! Hey, look what I found! A perfect example of government at work!

Miso Hongry, Me Eat You Long Time


The History of Miso Soup

I have to give the website props for its name. I love miso soup. I have a jar of the soup base that I keep around, mostly for a nice hot drink at night when it's too late to drink coffee. Boil some water in the kettle, add the base and Bob's your uncle, a nice hot cup of broth to warm your tummy. Quick, too. Miso soup has been around for a while.

Miso soup emerged during the Kamakura period. (1185-1333).
Suribachi mortars were introduced to Japanese society by Chinese monks, which led to the easy grinding of grains. This was epochal, bringing in a new era for Japan’s mealtime etiquette.

Of course if you're serving it as a starter you add stuff like tofu, scallions and wakame to beef it up a bit, but don't overlook the value of just the soup itself.

Thursday Quiz

Time to redo Chex mix:

chex.jpg

I saw this quiz as a poll on another site, and the people there were obviously dealing with mental issues because rye chips were leading. Rye chips are the best. No way I'm removing them unless it was to make a snack that was nothing but rye chips. So what say you? I'd probably remove one of the pretzels, they're redundant.


Down To A Sunless Sea
What Was the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration?


The ‘discovery’ of America by Europeans in 1492 ushered in an age of discovery that would last until the early 20th century. Men (and women) raced to explore every inch of the globe, competing with one another to sail further than ever before into the unknown, mapping the world in greater detail.
The so-called ‘heroic age of Antarctic exploration’ began in the late 19th century and finished around the same time as the end of World War One: 17 different expeditions from 10 different countries launched Antarctic expeditions with different aims and varying levels of success.


I find it fascinating what these explorers went through on a quest to find the South Pole. Many of them didn't come back. The title of this section is from a book I quite enjoy (as well as the classic Coleridge poem), written in the early 80s. It's an apocalyptic novel, dealing with a planeload of people flying serenely over the Atlantic when WWIII breaks out with an all-out nuclear exchange, I mean everyone launches everything. So, they're OK, but there is nowhere left to go. Eventually they head to McMurdo Base in the Antarctic. What's fascinating about the book is that it ends on a hopeful note – but originally it ended with everyone dying as fallout reached the base. They took out a chapter or two for everything but the first printing or something. I've never been able to find a copy of that original version, and I'd really like to read the missing bits. If one of y'all have access to a first edition, would you mind scanning the last chapter(s) and sending them to me?


Zoomer Arrogance

Tragically Gross Foods Baby Boomers Won’t Let Die

I'm not really linking the article for content, frankly, it's shit. Sure, there are some foods that deserve to go away, like 1970s jello mold creations (but when was the last time you saw any of those in real life anyway?), but there's a lot of perfectly good stuff she wants to get rid of, like chain restaurants. No, the reason I link the article is because it's such a perfect example of dripping Zoomer condescension that I almost wonder if it's a parody. On meatloaf:

First of all, meatloaf looks disgusting. Secondly, it's basically tasteless. Even the name itself triggers a vomit reflex. So basically, it doesn't meet the standards for any of the five senses. And when I eat, I expect all of my food to taste, feel, look, smell and sound delightful. There's a reason why hipster food is all the rage these days.

I bet you I know exactly what she looks like.

It's not real. But damn, wouldn't that just be peak 2022? Dark Frasier to go with Dark Brandon.


Single Lady Alert!


Hey guys, guess who's available?


Tailor _fitted.jpeg

I doubt there's even anything wrong with her elbows. Of course, she's available because she's under arrest for killing her boyfriend. Also, she's an OnlyFans model, so she's probably been taken out for quite a few test drives, and at the time of her arrest she was in rehab. But, hey, she's single. Go for it. Let us know how it works out.

Groom exposes bride for cheating on him

So, apparently she was railing his brother-in-law. Somehow the groom got video of this, and so he had it projected on to the screen at the wedding. I mean....I have to admit that's a power move, but wow.

62 I had the pleasure of a (mostly) Southern California upbringing in the '60s & '70s. It was a better and freer time, the last roars of the Aerospace Industry were still decades ahead. People were optimists, Patriots, productive and proud.

Leaving there in '76, I've returned enough times, and recently enough, to have seen and tracked its degradation from good times to bad, prosperous to poor, and proud to pathetic.

Still, there is more raw horsepower of POTENTIAL there than one can possibly imagine. It is an insanely beautiful place, rich in resources, comfortable weather, boundless opportunity.

Yet they fuck it all up, every time they vote. Even a worm knows to turn from pain, but CA keeps voting (d), time and again. Mournful, that. Prayers up for all the CA Horde, that's for sure.

79 That didn't take long for the DOJ/FBI to start leaking to the WaPo.

The WaPo is reporting that people familiar with "The Raid on Mar-a-Lago" (tm, pat. pending) are saying the FBI went their looking for classified documents related to nuclear weapons. Which explains why the FBI was rummaging around in Melanie's lingerie drawer: everybody knows that is where you store nuclear weapons documents.

The commentariat at the NYT and Daily Kos, from what I have read, got the memo loud and clear: Trump had to be stopped before he sold off nuclear weapon secrets to mysterious foreign powers mostly named Putin.

Then they came for the Trump supporters, and I did not speak out, because they are Nazis.
Then they came for the conservatives, and I did not speak out, because they are white supremacists.
Then they came for the non-woke, and I turned myself in at the re-education camp.

Chex Mix

Keep the Wheat and Corn Chex. Add Rice Chex. Lose one of the pretzels and the mini bread stick.

It's all about the snacking rhythm. The Chex have the delicate crunch. Mild (rice), medium (corn) and extra crunchy (wheat). The crisp hard rye adds a nice interlude between Chex bites. Pretzel is...well...a pretzel, it stands on its own merit. The stupid bread stick just breaks the rhythm, like, "Ewww, what was that? Oh well, wash out the ewww with another Corn Chex!"

2. Out with the round pretzels in Chex Mix. You already have those square ones and the round ones are dry and suck the moisture out of your mouth. Put peanuts in instead, dammit.

200 Unless things have changed since I served, certain classified docs are tracked. Not just handed out like candy. So not sure how Trump could have TS documents and they not know it for two years. And if that's some how possible, I guess the only explanation I can think of is he had something he should've turned in, showed it to someone who freaked out and contacted the proper authorities. Hard to believe anything anymore because of the media and FBI's past. But at the same time, it wouldn't shock me if Trump kept stuff he shouldn't. Every one of you are thinking it's possible, even if you won't say it.

Allegation: Trump tried to overthrow the government with an insurrection as a result of refusing to accept he lost the election because of the "big lie." Result: Political prisoners and the endless J6 nonsense.

Allegation: Trump recklessly and criminally has nuclear weapon documents in his possession. Result: The Raid on Mar-a-Lago ordered by the DOJ (*cough* FJB) and a persecution that is just getting started.

283 182. 1. I once took Amtrak from Philly to Richmond, VA. The trip there (and return trip) took 2 and 3 hours longer than it would have driving...and was more expensive. - DangerGirl

I used to commute from Richmond to D.C. during the work week on Amtrak for about three years. By and large, it wasn't too bad, but when it was bad, it was terrible. Once, on the way home, the train's arrival got delayed by more than half an hour because there were goats on the track. The engineer kept blowing the horn, but, instead of turning to right or left, the goats just trotted marginally faster down the track. Other times, the lightest rain seemed to have the power to knock out switch boxes.

Girlfriend saw an ex-boyfriend walking down the road and decided to give him a ride over boyfriend's objection. The two then argued...a lot...which carried over to when they got home.

Girlfriend claims he then hit her, boyfriend claims he slammed the door and left. They plea bargained so I didn't have to assess who was telling the truth.

Posted by: Reuben Hick at August 11, 2022 10:34 PM

There are a few things that are colloquially called "codes":
1) a card that has a number of sets of digits, one set of which was selected by the President (or other high officials) as basically the PIN (in addition to any launch command arriving on the right radio with the right voice);
2. the war plans in the "football" which indicate what the targets to hit probably have some code designation;
3. the permissive action link codes that the guys in the silos/on the sub/on the plane enter on the actual nuclear device which allow it to go BOOM instead of just hitting the ground at terminal velocity

Apparently for quite a while, #3 above was all zeroes.

I have an old pig barn, added a roof to it for a sawmill, so have that butterfly roof. Has been no problem with snow ... but I am in West Central Illinois, snow does not usually accumulate. Still, a LOT of snow would not be a problem, imo.

In my case, the middle of the butterfly drains into a gutter, has not failed in six years or so. ... But sure, doesn't seem like the best original design in normal cases.

Short version, friggn' train for mysterious reasons was the big train that couldn't: 8.5 hours later I made it to Seattle plus I had to I to take a bus to the suburbs because my family told me to piss off, no way were they driving to the train station a second time.

When Babe Ruth was a pitcher, there had been some shenanigans the day before and the ump warned him about it. First batter up, Ruth threw right at him (but the batter bailed out) 4 times, eventually walked the batter, and the ump threw Ruth out. The runner was caught stealing and the relief pitcher, Ernie Shore, got the next 26 batters in a row out, so he had the only relief pitcher perfect game.

I had never had Chipolte. Then one day I decided I wanted a burrito and stopped in. The meat in the steak burrito had to have been sitting under a heat lamp all afternoon. It was the worst TexMex food I'd ever had.

442 Kestrel, Yesterday at the home where hubs resides one of the residents died unexpectedly at age 106. In order to arrange for the extraction of the body the staff packed all of the third floor residents into a smallish tv room. I witnessed one inmate beating another one about the face with a pink stuffed teddy bear. Even my normally placid hubs told one woman to fuck off and stood up like he was ready to fight, it was just really strange. Tonight when I was driving home from my daughter's place a state trooper zoomed past me and attempted to pull over a driver up ahead, she came to a dead stop right in the high speed lane causing all sorts of problems.

455 If fresh fruit salad is served at a buffet-style gathering, I will admit, I do not indiscriminately take a spoonful and live with the random outcome of the scoop.

I will size up the contents. Perhaps it's cantaloupe, grapes, strawberries, pineapple and banana, for instance.

In my mind, I recognize that the premium fruits are strawberries and pineapple, and the avoid fruit is the banana, which is good, but in fruit salad begins to take on an unpleasant texture.

Then I will try to take a strategic scoop that maximizes the possibilities of getting the most strawberry and pineapple whilst minimizing the banana. When you pull of the perfect scoop without overtly picking through the fruit, it's definitely a satisfying result.

I do have great sympathy for you, it takes a great deal of strength for you to stick with it. I haven't known one exactly like yours, but I've had close contact with a couple of schizophrenics who could actually be fine as long as they were conscientious about staying on their medication. Problem was sooner or later they'd quit taking it because they "didn't feel like themselves" when they were on it, and they'd go whacko again.

479 "Sad that she's in a coma, and I pray that she recovers and finds Jesus."

sure, even Saul (later Paul after seeing the light) found redemption after persecuting good people. And Anne didn't kill anyone, though her insane actions could have.

I don't see her path the same as Saul of Tarsus, who was presumably on a more noble but "misguided" path. But maybe I don't have the full perspective. Was she seeking truth, and overwhelmed? what led to this dilemma? idk, leftists get lost .. I wish they were Christian, but that is not always the preferred outcome.

Thing is, resurrection of Just ... and resurrection of unjust where they are judged and die a "second death". OK, Christians are one thing, "good people" are in the resurrection of the just based on ? .. whether they were just or unjust, seems to be the clear standard. (in the Bible)

I'm blessed that he doesn't actually fight me on taking his meds. I think one of the main reasons is that his psych issues are based on trauma (brain hypoxia). Quite frankly, I'd give anything for him to go back to his old self, but it's not physically possible. So we've had to accept that the issues are here to stay, and we do what we can to mitigate them.

Posted by: Lost In Space


That's true of anything straight off a farm or your home garden. Most fruit in a grocery stores isn't tree ripened. It can't be because it would rot before you bought it. The varieties that were developed for grocery stores can also take a lot more handling, so you get big strawberries that last, but don't taste as good.
This is why people grow their own tomatoes in home gardens. Something else that tastes best if you grow it yourself is sweet corn.

565 I love miso soup. However, not everyone agrees. Years ago, I broke my jaw, and had to eat everything through a straw. Miso soup was a tasty, nutritious lunch, and easy to prepare. In place of a sandwich, I'd bring a jar with a lump of miso in it; at lunch time, I'd go to the cafeteria, fill the jar with hot water from the urn, stir in some salt and pepper, pop in a straw, and enjoy. However, there was a problem: you see, miso looks a lot like, uh, fecal matter. So, other people saw me mixing up a lump of what looked like effluvia and drinking it, and began to think that I was, well, a little strange. Finally, someone asked me about it, and I cleared up the matter. I wound up leaving that job soon after that.

600 Don't really pick anything out of the mixed nuts, like em all.

I think Brazil nuts are highest in selenium. Why that is of any value, I forget.

We sort of make our own mixed nuts (usually no Brazils or hazelnuts), I add my own killer seasoned pecans that I make on the stove-top. We eat nuts a lot, it must be good for us.

Prefer to use Hamilton 86, a very simple but flavorful Demerara. Tonight picked some up from the booze super-store. They didn't have the 1L bottle in their system - amazing - and couldn't find it, so charged me for the 750ml.

Not sure. My belief is that these are the documents that he declassified before leaving office but the Deep State fought to keep hidden because they show government corruption related to the Russia hoax and perhaps the Hillary email scandal.

Technically, the president is the ultimate declassification authority but I think there are some qualifiers that give the various agencies the right to redact and without information and they fought the unreacted release until Trump was gone so that might be a legal fight.

But Trump just issued a statement saying he wants the documents released contra the establishment narrative that he had stolen the nuclear launch codes.

He's pretty good at this stuff.

691 Okra was amended to the Hague Convention in 1953, as a food prohibited to serve to Prisoners of War, as being outside the bounds of civilized warfare.

North Korea, being a Rogue State outside of the Hague Conventions, continued to feed orka to it's POWs, at the rate of one fruit per week. Estimates vary as to how many died of this torture, but it was more than a mere few.

This at the very least can cause chaos for quite some time if they drag it out. And they will.

So they decide to charge him with some process crime a day before Super Tuesday and he's been winning everything up to then. His only viable challenger is Pence.

Republican Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania said Tuesday that the FBI had seized his cell phone. That sounds like the FBI is going after him hard core.

Plus Garland laid this turd on the floor in his statement: "Third, let me address recent unfounded attacks on the professionalism of the F.B.I. and Justice Department agents and prosecutors. I will not stand by silently when their integrity is unfairly attacked." That sounds like a threat.

Heh. Went on a road trip today to fetch home a new car. About 2 miles south of Linden, AB (nice little Mennonite town) I spotted a burned-out car on the shoulder of the road. Slowed down for a gander on the return trip. Old Pontiac 6000, or some similar ilk. Definitely a Pontiac, so quite old, with visible rust. Maybe stolen and burned by the perps. Most of the fire damage was fro the cowl forward.

I think it's pretty clear by now Trump isn't an idiot. He took and kept those documents for a reason and has been negotiating to keep them for the last year and a half. And the FBI/DOJ was desperate to get them back.

I think it's about the documents and what they show.

759 Garland "Second, the department does not take such a decision lightly. Where possible, it is standard practice to seek less intrusive means as an alternative to a search and to narrowly scope any search that is undertaken."

This is laying the groundwork to assert that after decades of negotiations and lawsuits, the FJB regime was beyond exasperation and had to, had to, had to, take the next minimal step of raiding their principle political rival's home to get their mitts on documents they already knew where there because they had seen them. Plus leaking to the WaPo that President Trump had critical nuclear weapons documents and then started seeding the NYTimes comments that Trump was going to sell them. Totally plausible. I am in.

The left is projecting again. If they were in possession of nuclear secrets, they would sell them, because they are greedy assholes with no morals.

Suppose, for a New York minute, that Trump was in possession of nuclear secrets, and decided that Putin should have them. He is already extremely wealthy. Any possible gain he might make by "selling" those secrets would be trivial on his bottom line. Trump would just give those secrets to the Russians, no quid pro quo asked or accepted (which makes it a lot harder to prove the transfer, too). Leftists are blinded by their greed.

The last one I remember was back in the late 80s (reading in my Dad's Discover! magazine that we were working on burrowing nukes to be able to be sure to get the soviet command bunkers, but that is about it.

If the iranians or the Norks are working on them, they are likely just trying to get them to work (a not inconsequential hurdle for anyone) rather than trying to come up with new designs. Maybe the pakistanis, Indians or the Chinese? I dunno. Hypersonic is the delivery, not the bomb itself.

781 >>The left is projecting again. If they were in possession of nuclear secrets, they would sell them, because they are greedy assholes with no morals.

The story the left has been pushing for the last few days is that this raid was done at the behest of the National Archives. The National Archives does not keep current nuclear weapons information.

Don't bother running down the left's rabbit holes. Trump has called Garland's bluff and insisted that he wants the relevant documents related to the raid published. This is not about nuclear secrets and even if it did it wouldn't take Garland 3 days to make a weak announcement and the left wouldn't still be claiming the current POTUS has no knowledge of what's going on.

GM "X" car platform.

VERY minor skin and interior changes between GM brands.

Same car as Buick Century, Olds Cutlass, Chebby Citation. Cadillac didn't make a version of this, but their "J" frame car was the horrible "Cimarron". Think, "J-frame" Smith & Wesson, and you'll get an idea of the scale of this wee turd.

All fhis was from when GM's ACCOUNTANTS ran the company, and ran it straight into the ground. Yeah, lower development and production costs between brands. To the point where "what brand?", hardly mattered.

823 About those German EV fires:

This is a true story, but I have no backing evidence, so take it as you will. Last month, BMW held a dealer showcase event in a large parking lot near the Philadelphia sports complex. They were showing off the 2023 models, and this included new electric vehicles. This was a multi-day event, so they would charge up the EVs overnight. Well, on the second night, one of the charging cars caught on fire. The cars were stored close together, and by the time the Philly Fire Dept showed up, 7 of the cars had been totally destroyed. The total damage was almost $1 million.

Because this happened in an isolated area of the city, the only witnesses were the security guards onsite and the firemen. BMW knew that if word of this got out, it would be a large hit to their credibility, and to the overall push towards EVs. They sent a fleet of tractor-trailers to haul away the burnt-up cars, and some people to sanitize the area. German efficiency at it's finest, lol. There wasn't any news coverage, nor did any city officials show up to investigate. It's as if it never happened.

You will find it better policy to say: --

No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that plays it is lost!"

861 I made something completely new for dinner tonight: Donair. My wife is a Canoehead, and as such she is unable to properly appreciate a good, solid, gyro. "Sheep are for sweaters" she'll complain when I serve her one. Up in the hat, they have a dumbed down version of a gyro called a donair, kind of like a Pontiac Aztek is a dumbed down version of an automobile. It uses ground beef instead of lamb, and a sweet sauce derived from evaporated milk instead of proper tzatziki, but otherwise it's pretty much the same. So last night I took a couple of pounds of ground beef, seasoned it, compressed it, made a log of it, and set it to rest. Today I put it on the rotisserie to cook and...disaster. It fell apart. I managed to rescue the meat and bake it flat in a pan, then sliced it and fried it and served it in pita bread. I also made the sauce (Milk, sugar, spices, and vinegar, can you imagine?), and you know what?

She said it tasted exactly right. If you pull off my socks and tickle my feet, I'll even admit it tasted good, but it wasn't a gyro. I made a meal I'd never even seen, let alone tasted, and it came out right. Win!

Thomas Jane, an ex-boyfriend, said Heche is intubated but is "expected to pull through."

Stirling the Evil Black Kitten of War and Pestilence is ensconced on a folded blanket I keep atop the sofa for felines. He continues to grow like black-furred kudzu. It's been 2 months now since I adopted him, and it sometimes seems like 2 years. I can hardly wait until he grows out of the crazy kitten stage and mellows a bit. He's due to have his batteries extracted in about a month. Maybe that will help -- though it has never really changed the personality of any male cat I ever knew.
