I thought "educators" were all in on respecting and treating cultural minorities with dignity. I thought wrong.

An 8-year-old Wyandotte Nation boy was ordered to cut his hair short by R.V. Haderlein Elementary school in Kansas's Girard School District. His mother did so after being told by Joni Benso, assistant principal at the school, that no exemptions to male dress codes would be made for religious or tribal reasons and that "she needed to cut his hair over the weekend or he would be sent home." The ACLU now demands that the schools rescind this policy.

18 Reasons Why You Really Need An Electric Car

In the world of electric vehicles, where the allure of green technology meets the practicality of everyday life, there are those who embrace the electric revolution with a unique flair.

Enter the unapologetic connoisseur of contradictions, the embodiment of the unexpected, the aficionado of electric eccentricities, and a character worthy of exploration.

Here are 18 reasons why you really need an electric car:

1. You’re a Tolstoy enthusiast who’s never quite conquered the monumental War and Peace.

Fear not, for that long charging queue becomes your literary sanctuary where you can immerse yourself in 1,225 pages of Russian opulence while your electric steed gains its much-needed energy boost.

2. Fine dining at Chiswick, Margaret, and Quay is a given, but have you truly lived until you’ve sampled the delights of the local servo?

Post-War and Peace, dive into the exquisite world of slurpees, gristly meat pies, and try-hard coffee at the gas station. Breakfast and lunch might just be a charging queue away. YOLO.

Bill Maher is our friendly liberal clock. He's correct twice a day.

Bill Maher Throws in Towel on Biden Run, Explains Why 'Clean-Up' in San Fran Is Sign 'Trump Is Winning'

Bill Maher is still a Democrat, but he often has interesting things to say because he's willing to call out his side for their radical behavior.

He's also warning them now that he thinks that former President Donald Trump is "winning" and explaining why Joe Biden is going to lose.

To be honest with you, I'm a bit amazed someone who is normal won.

Miss Nicaragua wins Miss Universe 2023 at pageant full of firsts including two trans contestants, a plus-sized model and a burkini in the swimsuit round

The 23-year-old mental health activist and audio-visual producer is the first delegate from Nicaragua to win the title

OH GOODY!!! This will be the one and only cookbook you will ever need.

Will climate cookbooks change how we eat?
Sustainable diets have been around for ages, but an emerging cookbook genre signals a new appetite for change.

itchen Arts & Letters, a legendary cookbook store on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, is tiny — just 750 square feet — but not an inch of space is wasted. With roughly 12,000 different cookbooks and a staff of former chefs and food academics, it’s the land of plenty for those seeking guidance beyond the typical weekday recipe.

One table is piled high with new cookbooks about ramen, eggs, and the many uses of whey, the overflow stacked in leaning towers above the shelves along the walls. One bookcase is packed with nothing but titles about fish. And next to a robust vegetarian section at the back of the store, tucked in a corner, is a minuscule collection of cookbooks about sustainability and climate change.

Except for the Deplorable Gourmet Hey Christmas is right around the corner.

Don't want to go to Aunt Eileen's for Thanksgiving dinner? You could always cop out and say you have the Kung Flu.

Two Thanksgivings after the super-hyped omicron COVID-19 variant hardly killed anyone, the Mainstream Infotainment Complex is doing what little it can to drum up more concern over a virus that's mellowed more than, say, a certain PJ Media columnist following a large dinner and a larger brandy.

I don't even know what variant we're on any longer, nor do I care. And I'm not alone, despite the media's best bad intentions.

The Chicago Sun-Times warned on Sunday that COVID hospitalizations are up a big 17% over the last week, but the story neglects to mention one vital detail: A 17% increase over what? If the number were a great big scary one, I imagine they might have published it.

This Times of India story about how the U.S. faces a "COVID winter wave and hospitalization" is adorned with photos of sick (but attractive!) young women, even though the virus typically hits the oldest the hardest. But that Karen-panic isn't going to monger itself, comrades.

‘Workhouse’ trespassers call 911 for help after locking themselves in cell
Police helped free the men from a cell and then arrested them.

ST. LOUIS — Three trespassers had to be rescued by police Thursday night after accidentally locking themselves in a jail cell inside a shuttered city jail.

St. Louis police spokesperson Sgt. Charles Wall said officers responded to the Medium Security Institution, colloquially known as the "Workhouse," after the three men called 911 for help.

Needles. Yarns. Grannies. Some assembly required for Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

For over twenty years, a colorful collective of ladies residing at a senior living community in Dallas have crafted thousands of hand-knit items, bringing warmth and support to children both in Texas and overseas.

And, with sass and swing, they call themselves the Knit Wits.

Every Friday, they gather around a long table with yarn and knitting needles to lend a hand from their home at Edgemere—and their latest project is a collaboration with Children’s Health in Dallas to create homemade caps for infants facing heart problems.

"We are a Washington DC organization! The trial should be held in Washington DC!

Only DC judges and DC juries are sophisticated enough to hear complex cases like this!

Frankly, a drooling jury of rednecks in Texas can not give this case the necessary deliberation that it deserves!"

80 Starting Jan 1, the junta will be giving $7500 instant savings on any EV. This is going to be different than before where you'd need to file a tax return and then get the money. Now it's done at the dealership. Buy a new EV, price is cut by $7500.

Pretty damn tempting, given it applies to leases as well. $7500 covers 1/2 a lease of $400/mo.

In the six+ years that I've been driving for the shuttle service, I've seen about seven or eight Maserati SUVs out on Houston's highways. Two or three Bentley SUVs.

And one Rolls Royce SUV. And it was OOGLY! The Bently is a far more appealing megabuck SUV. And the Maserati? Gorgeous. But, I don't know the reliability rating on those. Memories of '70s FIATs on (the side of) the roads, don't fuel optimism, there.

It's quite a racket -
- print money obtained with imaginary loans to give to their cronies devalueing everything everybody else has left by making their hard earned bucks worth less
- call in the 'loans' by taken everything of value left and giving it to your cronies to pay off the imaginary loans

At least with a gold standard they had to debase the base metal (gold) which was still worth something... and there were no imaginary loans

Buy one, then fill the back with bags of plain sawdust. Drive to border. When Customs looks at the bags of sawdust, look very nervous and panicky. Customs will pull you over and spend hours trying to find contraband in the sawdust. At last, they will give up in disgust and send you on your way, in your illegal pickup truck.

249 Joe Walsh came to Colorado to record at Caribou Studio because it was "the" place to record at the time. The house bass player at Caribou was Kenny Passarelli, and he was there when Joe showed up all excited and shouting about the mountain scenery and saying "I want to write a song!" So, Joe and Kenny sat down and wrote Rocky Mountain Way. About 7 years ago I was playing a show in Denver, Kenny came in, borrowed my bass (this was all set up ahead of time), told the story and sang and played RMW, surprising the sold out crowd of 300.

Ah, the famous Pogue Carburetor. Built by some dude in Winnipeg, IIRC. What it really was: a vaporizer. A heat exchanger in the form of a spiral, with exhaust gases passing through one coiled layer, and fresh air passing through the other layer. Liquid gasoline was dribbled into the airstream, and got vaporized by the hot metal, and blended with air. Now in order to get the correct 14:1 air-to-fuel ratio for complete combustion, there necessarily had to be a lot less fuel used, since the engine can take in only so much air. So it did get better fuel mileage, at the expense of greatly reduced power. Cars that burn propane do the same darned thing.

Regardless, there would be less power. That 14:1 air-fuel ratio is by weight, not volume. So, the less volume the fuel itself occupies, the more air can be crammed in, and the more mass of correctly-mixed air and fuel can be burned in a given firing event. If you convert the liquid fuel to vapor, it has to displace some air from the cylinder, and you get less "bang".

Fuel injection optimizes the air-fuel ratio.

315 Nissan *was* a Japanese manufacturer, now wholly owned by either (I forget), Renault or Pugeot.

Learn to say it with me, class: "Fron-Tee-Aye"

And this buisness relationship explains exactly, why Nissan products such as the Titan pickup and SV-3500 van, have some of the most fk'd up driver and dashboard ergonomics yet seen in the modern automotive era.

Japan *excells* at ergonomics. Fronce? Non!

Posted by: Romeo13 at November 21, 2023 12:09 AM (xaFKb)


Worse than that. I graduated high school in Nawfuk in '74. Nawfuk only had beer bars growing up. Liquor by the drink was still years away.

To serve liquor, 51% of sales had to be food, so really only restaurants served liquor. For beer, 26% of sales in food, which is easy with cheap snacks/salty foods.

Grew up near the north entrance to Little Creek (in Nawfuk), but the base is mostly in Va Beach. Mom worked nights over at NOB. Had in-laws whose house was across a street and railroad tracks from the fence and runway at Oceana.

I have made it a few times and it has been good, just not as good as the ones from an Italian bakery when I was growing up. I currently buy the shells from an Italian bakery, but I don't like their filling at all.

The history an origin of "Wimoweh"/Lion Sleeps Tonight goes back. "Mbube" is Zulu for "lion". Supposedly, it came about, and was first recorded in South Africa in '39, but not in the form we recognize it.

One story is this singer and his group just got to riffing on "lion" for the audience at some joint in Johannesburg.

If you listen to Anne Reburn version there, you can make out what sounds like "Eeee-eeeee-eeee, eee-oh, mum-buh-be".

Mumbuhbe, Mbube, lion.

Must skip bacon.

Nice recipe. I've watched this guy before (grilling vids).

Passed it on to Mrs. BD and told her to cover her ears and cook!

Current apparent solar day is only 24 hr + 14.8s. Longest solar day will occur on Dec 22 at 24 hr + 30s. It is the irony of the vagaries of the Erf's orbit around Sol that the longest solar day occurs close to the "shortest day" in terms of daylight.

For us in the North. For Pixy, the longest solar day does occur right after the summer solstice for them.

417 Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking a few minutes and
actual effort to make a top notch article… but what can I say… I
hesitate a lot and don't manage to get nearly anything done.

418 Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But think
about if you added some great images or video clips to
give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this website
could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.

Excellent blog!
