I'm so naive . I'm so shocked!!! I sure as hell didn't see this happening. What about you?

Days after President Joe Biden bypassed the congress to approve a $6-billion ransom payment to Iran, the Mullah regime has taken another Western national hostage as part of its ongoing ‘hostage diplomacy,’ media reports say.

On Saturday, Iran’s Islamic Guard (IRGC) disclosed that it has taken yet another Westerner in its custody, less than a week after Biden White House agreed to pay $6 billion for the release of 5 U.S. hostages. The media reports did not specify if the captive is a U.S. or a European national.

Happy Birthday US Consitution.

On September 17, 1787, members of the Constitutional Convention signed the final draft of the Constitution. Two days earlier, when a final vote was called, Edmund Randolph called for another convention to carefully review the Constitution as it stood. This motion, supported by George Mason and Elbridge Gerry, was voted down and the Constitution was adopted.

Investigative journalism at its finest.

Irish TV station Virgin Media News broadcasted a news segment on Wednesday about a "mysterious crater" at a local beach north of Dublin, which it said could be evidence of a meteorite violently impacting with the sand in a "once-in-a-lifetime cosmic event."

The smoking gun: a mysteriously charred rock in the middle of the almost perfectly circular hole.

Jerry Rivers and Al Capone's vault it is not.

University students are learning math up close and personal.

The board of West Virginia University voted to make campus-wide cuts to academic programs and faculty positions after falling into a $45 million budget downswing. This comes after students urged the campus to "stop the cuts."

The Associated Press reported that the university is set to cut 28 of its majors, amounting to about 8% of the total majors offered.

The term, "Foxy Bitch" takes on a new meaning.

The world’s first confirmed dog-fox hybrid was found in the Brazilian wilderness.

In 2021, the animal, a female, was hit by a car and taken to a veterinary hospital for treatment.

The staff at the hospital were unable to determine whether the animal was a dog or a fox, as it had physical characteristics of both species.

During his last years Williams's consumption of alcohol, morphine and painkillers severely compromised his professional life. Williams died aged 29 on January 1, 1953. via thisdayinmusic.com

2. US immediately invades, charging through the Ukrainian countryside, wrecking everything in their path, until they bump into the Russian trenches.
3. Ukie officials grab their offshore account bank books and run, leaving the Army to surrender to the USA.
4. USA occupies Ukraine and starts nation-building, Russians are left with the territory they captured prior to the surrender.

81 Shining in meetings is how eager young careerists climb up the corporate ladder. Whereas normal people hate and despise meetings. Which is why they get fired eventually by the careerists.

Even worse is when the boss can't shut his yap or get to the point, so that every time he starts talking, you're going to be there for at least another 20 minutes. Nobody can tell him to shut it so there you sit.

86 What remains of Establishment Republicans now live in a completely alternate reality.

Matthew Continetti wrote in Commentary that while we should be maturely considering whether to nominate Mike Pence or Nikki Haley, we have to deal with that awful Vivek Ramaswamy as the representative of the New Right.

The New Right is racist, anti-Semitic, isolationist, and obsessed with masculinity, of course, but what's worst of all is that they have a "dark view" of America's future.

I mean, what reason would anyone have to view America's future with trepidation?

Just because Biden is trying to imprison his leading political opponent (something Continetti references only in passing), that people "parading" through the Capitol have received ludicrous prison sentences, and that the Deep State has established kangaroo courts in DC that will convict a Republican for any crime that they're charged with, is no reason to think that anything is wrong.

And the Biden Administration is on the verge of shutting down free speech in this country - about the only thing standing in their way is Elon Musk.

It's Morning In America, damnit! Unite Behind Pence!

87 The world’s first confirmed dog-fox hybrid was found in the Brazilian wilderness.

A "Pampas Fox" isn't a fox. It looks like one, but isn't closely related to true foxes. It's in a group of critters just called South American Canids: a unique canid genus related to wolves and jackals; some of them somewhat resemble foxes due to convergent evolution. - Wikipedia

This is still a strange crossbreed, as dogs have 78 chromosomes, and pampas foxes only have 74. It's almost certainly sterile.

True foxes have about half that number of chromosomes, which is why there's no such thing as a dog-(true)-fox hybrid.

98 Footnote on Hank Williams:

Kingsley Amis once wrote that he thought Ambrose Bierce would be the last famous cultural figure to have a question mark for his year of death. Already over 70, Bierce went to see the Mexican Revolution in 1913, but no one knows when or where or how he died, though he's obviously dead now, even if he managed to die of old age.

Anyway, Hank Williams also needs an asterisk. He was alive, though not well, at 9:00pm on New Year's Eve of 1952, dead and cold and stiff at 6:00am on New Year's Day of 1953, but there was no way to tell whether his heart stopped beating before or after midnight. His year of death is usually given as 1953, which was when he was declared dead, but that's just a guess, and it really should have a question mark.

I'm particularly sad tonight because I wanted to play all 3 discs of the Original Singles Collection, but disc 1 somehow got scratched so bad it won't play.

To show how the discourse is turning, various Western officials are now complaining that Putin won't negotiate.

Zelensky's official position is that Russia has to withdraw to the 1991 borders (including giving up Crimea) as a precondition for starting negotiations.

But yeah, it's Putin who's being intransigent.

174 Regarding that "new Iranian hostage" story. Sounds like the new "western" hostage is in fact an Iranian with dual citizenship in some Western country. And he went back to Iran.

I think that's true of almost all the "Western" hostages in Iran.

They have some reason for returning to Iran (their mom is sick or something), and since almost all dual-citizens get away with it, they figure that they won't be one of the handful of people that Iran decides to seize as bargaining chips.

180 Well, the Hotrod Ford now sports a driveshaft. I dummied up the slip yoke for the automatic to the U-joint in the original driveshaft, to see if a conversion U-joint would do the trick. Nope, came up an inch short. So...I determined that the rear 6 inches of the van driveshaft was the same OD as the entire '49 Ford driveshaft. It was inserted into a larger tube, and set in rubber! So I cut the smaller tube short with a zip disc, using the end of the outer tube as a guide, and got a really nice square cut. Did some measures and calculations, and determined where I had to cut the front end of the '49 shaft to get the correct length when butt-welded. (1/2)

191 (2/2) I figured I'd use an insert at the butt weld to ensure everything was concentric, so I cut the discarded yoke from the '49 right at the weld, and knocked out the spigot section of the yoke from the tube. Turned out the van driveshaft was thicker wall tubing, 2.2 mm vs 1.8 mm. Turned down the spigot in the lathe, hammered it into the yoke end, and then hammered that into the long tube. Got a nice butt fit all the way around. Then I set up my new, but as yet unused TIG welder, and welded right around the seam. My first TIG weld! A little grinding, and it was smooth as a baby's bum. It's in the car now, and looks just right. Also changed the lube in the rear end. Clean oil came out, and clean oil went in.

And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is how Rome fell. The Barbarians weren't at the gates, the Barbarians were paid to protect those gates when Rome's elite no longer joined the army to do that job. We see how well that worked out for them. And that's what will happen to us, too. We hear arguments about whether the military will go along with tyrannical politicians/orders or not. If the military is comprised of Barbarians, then they've already been bribed (by 'citizenship'/pay) to kill us.

Oh, I don't disagree that our scum-sucking administration would make deals with the devil himself if it meant a bit more power and money.

But we just spent the last year trying to incite civil war in Iran using that weak-sauce Hijab Floyd incident to try to stir up the locals.

I'm sure lots of NGO agent provocateurs got rounded up over there trying to quarterback the whole thing.

So we froze some Iranian assets, then released the assets once we got our spooks back. It didn't even cost $6 billion, it just required the central bankers pressing a few buttons.

Basically we stole $6 billion in Iranian funds, then gave it back. That's how America rolls these days.

It's utter nonsense. Kamala-speak. A 5-gallon bucket is about 20 liters. Very close, in fact. A liter of water weighs exactly one kilogram. So a 20-liter pail would weigh 20 kilograms (44 pounds). Gold is 19.6 times as dense as water. So if that pail were full of gold, it would weigh 44X19.6 pounds = 862.4 pounds. ( I used metric for the calculation, because these sorts of calcs are easier done in metric, then converted to Imperial because Imperial is more relatable to our personal experience.)

It's doubtful the gold would be molten or poured into the pot and allowed to set, as Leprechauns generally opt for more a more fungible gold format such as coins.

So you'd have to.account for the fact that the pot would not be filled to the same density as it might otherwise when filled with a liquid.

I'd reckon you'd need to deduct 5-10% to account for the empty space created by filling it with coins.that didn't weren't form fitting.

Gold is a helluva storehouse of wealth, and value, but of itself, is pretty damn difficult to exchange in "daily commerce" denominations.

THE MOST EXCHANGABLE commodity the world has ever known, is also the oldest profession.

And dammit, even over thousands of years, no one has yet figured out how to stockpile THAT in one's vault or safe!

Now, picture the same at certain, select airports when the Gulfstream Jets go up in flames.

The Police Car riots required a few thousands.

The Gulfstream riots will be 10x that, and won't be "conservatives", "liberals" or even Antifa.

It's just gonna be a population sick to murderous death of being FUCKED OVER by the Gulfstream Annointed.

What kinds of governance we might see after that? My crystal ball remains cloudy.

I remember as a freshman leaving the stadium after an early fall afternoon game and looking back up at the bench stadium seating. There were paper bags sitting upright, as well as lots of bottles laying on their 'side', under those bench seats. It was an invasion of the dead liquor soldier army. And my bottle of Rebel Yell contributed to their number.
