Oh No! It's a test!

The profit of books is according to the sensibility of the reader. The profoundest thought or passion sleeps as in a mine until an equal mind and heart finds and publishes it.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

D

To read well, that is, to read true books in a true spirit, is a noble exercise, and one that will tax the reader more than any exercise which the customs of the day esteem. It requires a training such as the athletes underwent, the steady intention almost of the whole life to this object. Books must be read as deliberately and reservedly as they were written.
-- Henry David Thoreau

iii

The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.
-- Mark Twain

1

We are of opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read.
-- Jules Verne

I think this is an entirely appropriate response to a rabid leftist c*nt "journalist" who traffics in the sleaziest, lowest, accusatory stories just to get a few clicks and maybe get to fellate a junior staffer for a back-bench apparatchik.

Plastic Makers Lied About Recycling for Decades

My little village has a recycling program, so as a good citizen I participate. But...I no longer recycle thin plastic water bottles and clamshell containers and such. Sure, I'll recycle glass (it probably loses money but it can be a net positive) and metals, in particular aluminum. But the flimsy plastic sh*t just gets shipped off to the third world and a lot of it ends up in rivers and oceans.

77 We are at a super-secret lab under Walter Reed Hospital, where the Joe Biden Cognitive Team is desperately trying to formulate the drug cocktail intended to keep Joe Biden cogent during the State of the Union Address.

Several fist-fights have broken out among the doctors, some of whom are arguing that irreversible brain damage is a small price to pay for keeping Joe cogent for the required time; and others who argue that if they equip Biden with a hidden IV, to keep the flow of drugs flowing throughout the speech, they can keep Biden cogent, with a minimum of permanent brain damage.

They will be holding their breaths tomorrow night.

95 Got word today one of my high school teachers passed away. He had a good life and was an excellent American History instructor. Way back in the olden times, when one could still receive the beginnings of an education, Mr. P would dress up like a Continental Soldier, and expound on the details of Fort Laurens. He would bring in a reproduction period correct rifle and fire it (without a ball) in the classroom.

We loved it, and no one in authority ever said a word.

The Russians continue their slow grind forward elsewhere, but the Ukrainians seem to have stopped their breakout from Avdeevka.
Zelensky visited Odessa to hand out some medals and as soon as he left, the Russians hammered the site with a missile, possibly inflicting casualties on NATO personnel, based on a sudden uptick in helicopter flights at the Romanian border near Odessa.
After Zelensky complained that this was an assassination attempt, the Russians responded by publishing an old drone photo of a prior motorcade, implying they can take him out whenever they want to.

They never really went after Kiev other than with targeted strikes but we've been told if they win in Russia they will move against NATO which would be suicidal for Russia.

183 Doesn't it seem kind of odd that Russia has the capability to inflict much more damage on Ukraine than they have but they never did?

Yeah, I remember earlier in the war when the Ukes were complaining that the Russians hit Kiev during evening rush hour, thereby tying up traffic.

Dresden it isn't.

OTOH, the International Criminal Court has issued arrest warrants for two senior Russian military officers for the War Crime of destroying civilian electrical infrastructure in Ukraine.

Fortunately, there's still time to arrest Bill Clinton and retired Air Force commanders for doing exactly the same thing during the bombing of Yugoslavia twenty-five years ago.

In every strategic air campaign that the United States has ever conducted, we've targeted civilian electrical infrastructure.

There are wars fought on battlefields with militaries and weapons and there are wars fought more stealthily by regime changes using color revolution techniques.

And Putin is well aware of it. We got so good at it we even ran one here in 2020.

272 CBD, (psst, FWIW - I'm in the plastic's industry) Everyone outside the industry is missing the point about this plastic recycling fraud scheme. Those in the industry know the mandates aren't achievable, that's not their goal. I had a discussion with an editor at Plastic's News this last week (industry rag) about them using lawsuits as a mechanism to FORCE people to stop using plastics - period. It's the "if you can't do this, you need to stop". Think Just Stop Oil. That's exactly who these douchebags are. Go Google the "Center for Climate Integrity". All the usual type suspects there. With China National Sword in the 2018 timeframe and the Basel Convention changes in 2019, recycling markets are harder (forcing action) and the recent INC-1 (UN Plastic Treaty) crap, they just can't put down the stupid. They were trying to outright ban PVC and Polystyrene. Yeah, good luck with that. So many critical things are made with that, it's a non-starter. The eco-nazis don't care, they don't think and they have not a clue.

I've toured at least 10 distilleries in Kentucky and 2 in Ireland. The reuse of bourbon barrels for scotch, Irish, tequila, rum, and hot sauce is a common thing mentioned on many tours.
By law, all bourbon must be aged in a new charred oak barrel. The used barrels still have a lot of good useful purposes - often times used to age multiple spirits in succession.
On my agenda for a future trip is touring a cooperage - where they make and char barrels. I've seen videos but I'd love to see it in person.

Posted by: Doof at March 06, 2024 11:47 PM (eNASR)

I enjoyed a Distillery Tour in Glasgow, Scotland, this past August. The Tour Guide was quite proud to show us their warehouse full of used, empty, American Bourbon Barrels, awaiting their fill and aging, with the Scotch, fresh out of the stills.

Do some research, and you'll read of the Scottish Whisky Laws, which mandate that Bourbon or Sherry barrels be used in the aging. The Macallan Double Cask being one such example. Aged, first in a Bourbon barrel for a few years, and then in a Sherry barrel, for a few years more.

Conveniently, American spirits law, requires that BOURBON be aged in NEW, interior-charred, White Oak barrels. Long as we're using THOSE, Scotland will never run out of used Bourbon barrels for their spirits.

Scotland is THE number one reason, why it's damn near impossible to buy an authentic, INTACT used Bourbon barrel, from the Bourbon Trail area distillers.

While there is an argument at the HQ over upright bass in bands, to me, the best bands had "that" bass player. Yes had Chris Squire on lead bass, e.g. It's fun watching reaction videos of Yes cuts from 'The Yes Album' forward, but especially cuts from 'Fragile', a damn fine album if'n I do say so myself. So many comment on Squire's bass lines on 'Roundabout'. Like I said, lead bass.

But they did run low on sherry casks for a bit, due to it's waning popularity. There was a period maybe 5-10 years ago where scotch distillers were experimenting with several other cask types to compliment the Bourbon casks. Still some of that going on, but seems like less now.

344 Saw the Doobie Brothers at Washington State U. in the 70's. My buddy was a police science major so was part of the security. He had the door next to the stage. He took me with him and I watched the door while he was drinking with the band in the break room. Great spot...literally standing next to the stage.

Posted by: Diogenes at March 07, 2024 12:01 AM (W/lyH)


I mentioned this before. Drove from Tech to UVA to see The Band in '77, on what turned out to be The Last Waltz. Small arena, pretty close to the stage, passing out joints to the staid pre-lawyer crowd and dancing in the aisle with my date some 20-30 feet from the stage, the only ones to get up and do so. Levon Helm looked right at us and smiled as he played. Just for us.

That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

346 North Face is running a truly despicable promotion - they are offering a discount (which actually means they're upcharging everyone else) to anyone who takes an online one hour woke DEI course.
And you can't just sign up for it, you have to watch every video through AND take and pass a DEI quiz and pass it after each module. It's like being forced to go to a Chinese re-education camp!

I think he won't be able to contain a spitting rant or two against 'MAGA Republicans' not wanting to close the border he opened -- wide, with free shit for the illegals as well. He'll take no responsibility for a damn thing, except maybe still actually being president; 'I don't need a, a . . . blemphil agrintle . . .'

374 North Face does make good stuff. And it’s not ridiculously priced compared to other options of similar quality.

I had to take a retarded DEI course for work recently. It was online too. It was 7 or 8 modules, each module had a quiz at the end. I just skipped to the quizzed and did the whole thing in 10 minutes.

The quizzes were idiot proof. Like John didn’t hire Bob because Bob is black. Is that wrong? Gee I dunno, let me think hard about that. It’s all bullshit and just a money maker for the race hustlers.

But if North face wants to sell me a $400 jacket for $300 if I watch one of their retarded videos, sure whatever. I’ll take the C note.

============

One of the Powerline boys made a case that Schiff is the one who deliberately knocked her out of the jungle. Schiff wanted to have a Republican opponent in the runoff, not another Dem, so he ran ads against Garvey, which elevated Garvey in people's minds -- and the ads themselves also made Garvey look good. Reportedly, Katie Porter saw exactly what Schiff was up to and she was furious.

Good news: an actual conservative and hardass on illegal aliens knocked out the GOPer incumbent who was the RNC's pick in a California Assembly race.

433 Bands.
Saw the Doobie Brothers at Washington State U. in the 70's. My buddy was a police science major so was part of the security. He had the door next to the stage. He took me with him and I watched the door while he was drinking with the band in the break room. Great spot...literally standing next to the stage.
Posted by: Diogenes at March 07, 2024 12:01

Closest experience we had was awesome at the time, I think it was 2005. Meat Loaf was doing a tour in the UK, all at castle type venues. Anyhow, we met some Brit friends and were at a meet & greet at the Blicking Hall show I think.

We'd paid for a meet & greet but it went long and we weren't done till they had let others in so we couldn't be up front as expected. Meat decided we could watch the show from the back of the stage, just off to the right side.

What an experience! We got to go on stage before the band came on and toss things into the audience, which was in the thousands. They stretched up this huge incline before Blicking Hall, maybe 5,000 or more.

Too watch a show from behind the scenes was just unreal. Meat was truly kind man and very concerned that his fans were treated right. RIP Fireball.

Cats have such a wide and weird range in food tastes. This one turns up its nose at everything you offer it, that one eats like it has Prader-Willi Syndrome, another one eats only dry food (that's my current cat). I've never seen one change its eating habits, though.

They have two choices

1. Load him up REAL heavy up front right before so he makes it through the first twenty minutes, then most people turn it off and don't see the crash

2. Low dose him gradually throughout the day giving him an extended time frame, however risking more seeing and calling out to dead people over the course of the two hours.

Yes he did. This wasn't a cancerous tumor- but an aggressive type. ( on lining of brain - a meningioma ) original was baseball sized. This is second time it grew back, only pea sized this time. He's in good spirits and so far only some fatigue. As long as the radiation doesn't affect some other part of his brain, it should be OK
