Saturday Overnight Open Thread (4/1/23)

The Saturday Night Joke


A nun gets into a cab and notices that the VERY handsome cab driver won't stop staring at her. She asks him why he is staring.
He replies: "I have a question to ask you but I don't want to offend you."

She answers, "My son, you cannot offend me. When you're as old as I am and have been a nun as long as I have, you get a chance to see and hear just about everything. I'm sure that there's nothing you could say or ask that I would find offensive."

"Well, I've always wondered what it would be like to have a nun kiss me."

She responds, "Well, let's see what we can do about that: #1, you have to be single and #2, you must be Catholic."

The cab driver is very excited and says, "Yes, I'm single and Catholic!"

"OK," the nun says. "Pull in to the next alley."

The nun fulfills his fantasy with a kiss like he has never been kissed before.

But when they get back on the road, the cab driver starts crying.
"My dear child," says the nun, "why are you crying?"
"Forgive me but I've sinned. I lied and I must confess, I'm married and I'm Jewish."

The nun says, "That's OK. My name is Kevin and I'm going to a costume party." (H/T "Iris")

Let's see if I understand this correctly. It is against the rules to take a shower and change clothing while being nude.

An Australian surf lifesaving club has found itself at the center of a controversy following its implementation of a no-nudity policy in showers and changing rooms.

Ocean swimmer Nada Pantle, who regularly uses the changing rooms after a morning swim in Terrigal, New South Wales, said she was sent a letter warning that she had breached Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club’s nudity policy, CNN affiliate 7News reports.

A sign in the club advises users to “shower in your swimming costume and change with your towel around you.” Another swimmer told the BBC that the sign appeared “probably three months ago.”

Mrs. Atroshchenko agreed to surprise the regiment with a pinup calendar, thinking she was speaking with an officer rather than Ukrainian hackers.

Yours truly is very honest with you. I'm not a big fan of baseball. Does the game need to be revolutionized? I think some tweaking is necessary. This seems over the top.

THE DRIVE FROM Tempe, Arizona, to Orange County takes roughly six hours, so Tucker Davidson had plenty of time to talk as he trekked from spring training to his home in the Los Angeles area. Just like everyone else in baseball, the 27-year-old left-hander has time at the forefront of his mind these days. The next pitch Davidson throws for the Los Angeles Angels will come with a digitized clock winding down and a penalty for its expiration.

A new brand of baseball will reveal itself to the world Thursday, when the Angels and 29 other teams inaugurate the 2023 season, or, as it will be known in future years, the beginning of the pitch clock era. It will be the most significant change to the on-field game since Jackie Robinson's arrival altered the player population.

You thought you had a shitty job. I'm betting it isn't this bad.

Meet Brendan Walsh, Professional Poo Diver
Brendan Walsh runs a commercial diving business in Melbourne and spends his days in all sorts of no-air environments, with a small part being sewage.

Sewage diving in Australia is essential because we use bacteria instead of chemicals to break down the solids.

Big stirring machines run 24 hours a day and moving parts constantly break, which is when Mr Walsh’s business is called in to repair them.


"It’s more thick than normal diving and you can’t see anything no matter what. It’s more like walking than swimming when you get down there.’


Speaking of shit. The following was submitted for your approval from CBD.......

Some Poor Viking Dropped this Massive Deuce Over 1,000 Years Ago

During an archaeological dig of a plot of land in 1972, a massive and incredibly well-preserved turd was discovered. Coming in at a whopping 8 inches long, and 2 inches wide, it was dubbed the largest, oldest human fecal sample in existence.

Marvin Gaye was shot dead by his father at his parent's home in Los Angeles, California. The argument started after his parents squabbled over misplaced business documents, Gaye attempted to intervene, and was killed by his father using a gun he had given him four months before. Marvin Sr. was sentenced to six years of probation after pleading guilty to manslaughter. Charges of first-degree murder were dropped after doctors discovered Marvin Sr. had a brain tumour. via thisdayinmusic.com

Oh great. She said "Yes". And they will probably breed. Genius Award Winner.

A Los Angeles Dodgers fan ran out onto the field during Opening Day on Thursday night and was brutally tackled by a security guard while he attempted to propose to his girlfriend.

But the story ended happily with the news that in spite of a hard hit and a brief detention, she said “yes.”

Ricardo Juarez posted a video on social media that showed him running out onto the field and looking for the right spot to get down on one knee.

We needed this. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

9 I think the rules are going to work well. The players just went mental with the waiting and nervous tics before pitching and batting. The base pads should bring steals back some. Which should break the hold the mid-wit nerds have on the game. They are so over their skis with the stats: using them wrong and refusing to change course.

Ending the shift shouldn't have to be necessary but the teams are powerless to say no to young stat nerds. Teams think it is better to lose with happy nerds than win with unhappy nerds.

The changes are actually very reactionary and traditionalist in spirit.

16 I like baseball but watching some guy twitch and roll his neck and shoulders and adjust his cap and pull his pants out of his crack and step off the mound and kick the dirt in front of the rubber and kick the dirt behind the rubber and pull on his glove laces and then stand there and look over to the dugout and stare at the catcher like he's never seen the guy before in between pitches can get a little bit irksome. Don't get me started on all the crap batters do. It's boring.

19 In the end, the game is screwed until owners stop paying primarily for HRs and high MPH swinging strike throwers.

All they can do is change the rules to make other skills more valuable. Like baserunning and defense and left handed hitters shortening their swings when down in the count.

Pitchers can't really throw "max effort" every time with a pitch clock either.

47 A prayer by Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) . He was a great English Baptist evangelist and preacher. A great man of prayer, he wrote morning and evening prayers for everyday of the year based on a verse from Scripture

Can thou bind the influence of the Pleiades or loose the bands of Orion?

Lord, end my winter, and let my Spring begin. I cannot with all my longings raise my soul out of death and dullness, but all things are possible with thee. I need celestial influences, the clear shinings of thy love, the beams of thy grace, the light of thy
countenance; these are the Pleiades to me. I suffer much from sin and temptation, these are my wintry signs , my terrible Orion.. Lord, work wonders in me and for me.

If money is not found, her church will be closed in two months. Her loyal congregation would be bereft. FenelonSpoke will be unemployed. She is working without salary now to help her church.

102 Does the game need to be revolutionized? I think some tweaking is necessary. This seems over the top.

The pitch clock has worked out well in Spring Training. The minor leagues have had a pitch clock for a few years now and the younger players in the Majors are used to it already.
It does a great job of speeding up the game by eliminating the batter taking a half minute to readjust his batting gloves after each pitch. Once you have seen a few games, the clock is hardly noticed.
Also, the ability for the batter to call time out only once per at bat, plus the limit to throw over to first base to stop the runner from stealing is now limited to twice per batter.
The games are averaging about 35 minutes less so far.
FIVE STARS!!!

For decades I've seen memes regarding one party or another voting on another day other than election day. Even in the last few presidential elections, the same old memes were brought out. Will anyone who satirically said that Reps should vote on the Wednesday after election day be charged too? This man was a Floridian, not a New Yorker, yet was tried in New York.

This is the kind of behavior that gets me angry, very angry. Dying in a fire is too good for the judges, lawyers, and politicians involved in these travesties.

A team of military medical scientists in China says it has inserted a gene from the microscopic Tardigrade into human embryonic stem cells and significantly increased these cells’ resistance to radiation.

They said success in this unprecedented experiment could lead to super-tough soldiers who could survive nuclear fallout.

And some of the "hacks" that are posted are just ridiculous. I saw one: Make a welder out of a spark plug! I figured, he's going to make a plasma torch from a spark plug? Nope. He fucked around for ten minutes grinding the shell of a spark plug so he could remove the porcelain intact, and then drilled and tapped a hole in the side of the shell, so he could pass a welding electrode through it and clamp on to make a connection. Then hooked two car batteries in series with #10 wire, clamped one wire to his workpiece, and one to his painstakingly home-made electrode holder, and welded two pieces of pipe together. What makes it really funny is that he had a perfect home-brew electrode holder sitting right there, in the form of a pair of Vise Grip pliers.

Also, radiation resistant cells are good if you're trying to take the high ground of space. Now if they could get that bone density issue solved, along with the radiation problem, that currently plagues long term space flight, they'd conquer the solar system (for starters).

I got me a new printer the other day, an HP 9025. It comes blazoned with "free ink" for 6 months. "Instant ink" program. They deliver you ink as you need it. Or so the big print says.

Well, turns out to use that feature, you have to subscribe to HP+, which basically turns your printer into spyware for HP. It has to connect to HP's cloud servers, and monitors and reports on your printing, etc, etc.

And the "instant ink" cartridges are different from the regular cartridges. They are spyware themselves basically, and under control of HP.

So, no thanks. I didn't buy the printer based on that, figuring there was a catch, and boy was there.

And when you hook the printer up, they try their damndest to get you to use their "smart app", which will helpfully try to subscribe to everything and make your printer spyware.

You can still manually install drivers and all that, which I did. Turns out the basic, built-in Windows drivers will do most of the functionality. The fax feature, they won't do.

Now, Linux's own drivers seem to do everything but I haven't played with them enough to know.

Full Moon coming up April 6th. This is known as the Pink Moon in the Injun lore. It is also the Paschal Full Moon, what determines Easter.

And I'm made at myself. I missed noting March 26th, which is the shortest apparent (true) solar day of the tropical year. 18.1 s less than 24 hours.

Mercury will reach maximum eastern elongation April 11th, and that will offer the best opportunity to see it. However, it's magnitude decreases as it gets farther away. I think it reached max magnitude sometime around now, or a couple days ago. But I can't see it here, too much clutter on the horizon, and still too bright twilight.

I had to cut one of the top diagonals off, in order to re-level the gates, due to an uneven weight distribution. The left-side (as seen from the front) carried more weight, due to stop plates and ground pin assemblies.

Cutting off the top diagonal, let me put a jack under the gate, raise it to slightly *above* level, re-weld, re-grind, re-paint, and re-install the wood, there.

Removing the jack, the gate settled it back to within 1/32d of perfectly level, and that was OK with me.

Those diagonals are taking one hell of a stress load. I've paid careful attention to those welds on either end.

They will hold. Of this, I have no doubts.

Looked like you put it on with a rake, eh? lol

The secret is multiple size spackle knives. Start with a 4 inch, bury the tape, and make sure you wipe the edges on your last passes. Then go to a wider knife for the next coat, like a 6-8". Fill the middle, and again wipe the edges. Then go to a 10-12" knife, and again wipe the edges. At every step you want to pull the center of the seam flat and make sure you finish by wiping the edges. Wiping the edges is where it's won or lost. if you can wipe the edge and get it to blend with the center of the seam and the extreme outside of the joint, you win. At worst when you're done a damp sponge can melt any lines and you shouldn't need to sand anything.

322 My bedroom will need a complete demolition of the old wallboard with horrible joints. I need new sheetrock with flawless joints on the walls and ceilings, the winter of 2014 was bad here, lots of ice dams and other damage. hubs was really sick and this has been left unchanged since then. I need to replace a deck on the back too. I would really like to help out the little guy locally and get these things taken care of, but the economy is so bad that every independent contractor needs to overprice just to keep up with the cost of living. If only Jimmy Carter could still lift a hammer!!

I just checked the price of sheetrock. Holy shit, its $15 a sheet now. Still, not too bad if you were putting it up yourself. It would be $360 to do a 16X16 room ceiling and walls. But it never ends there. You got insulation to deal with if the old stuff is shot, so that would have to be done, and its usually a good idea to redo it anyway. then you got all the trim in the room to deal with if it's getting gutted. You can piss away an easy grand on materials. I can't imagine what a contractor would get for that job these days.

I would build a development of huge houses, move all my friends in and live like reckless assholes for the rest of our lives. You win one of these 700 million dollar lotteries you couldn't spend that money. You would have millions in interest every year.

347 As for new rules in baseball, I believe this year they also put a timer on how long a batter can take to get ready for a pitch. If taking too long it's a strike. One team already lost the game on one of those strikes by taking too much time.

348 Regarding the no-nude policy in the gym.

I would like to know what the gym's policy is on transsexuals in the women's spaces. Is this an attempt to keep men who identify as women and are coming into the women's lockers and changing rooms from exposing themselves in front of women and girls? It seems like a kludgey workaround for people who are attempting to protect women and children, but also want to avoid offending the easily offended, hyperviolent transsexual political alliance.

349 Re: that snowman picture...

Those of us with expensive, life-altering chronic health conditions look at that picture and don't see a happy story.

If you know, you know.

If you don't... Well, those little styrofoam coolers like that are sent to me on a thrice-monthly schedule to keep my hideously expensive and life-saving medications cold so they don't go bad during shipping. I've got a shitload of them laying around. So, apparently, did the person who made the snowman...
