46 On the topic of "this is it for Biden" ...

I remember when Sam Donaldson said of the Monica Lewinsky revelations that "if true" the Clinton administration had days not weeks.

The revelations were of course true. Clinton stayed in office until the end of his term, survived impeachment and had very positive polling throughout.

So I am not so sanguine about terrible news being the end of a Democrat administration. The Dems are fantastic at sliding that Overton Window.

Speaking of Uranus, remember when they discovered it has rings like Saturn's, they're just invisible from earth because they're turned edgewise to us?

I remember because it was Christmas or Thanksgiving and the family was gathered together, including all of us grown-up kids. I was in the same room as my brother, who was reading Time magazine, and he said "Have you heard? They've discovered rings around Uranus!" and I said "Rings around my WHAT?!?! . . . . ooooh, the planet."

One Friday I got an email from the business, announcing Joe had suddenly, and unexpectedly, passed away. I was a little sad, as he had seemed like a nice guy.
Unknown to anybody, Joe had left one last email in the auto cue. On Monday, I get an email from Joe, subject: "Can you help me?"

76 Hello. Little dogs are aggressive because they have to prove themselves. Big dogs know they are large and have fangs and can just kind of look at you and say "Look. Check these. I could kill you, but I'm a retriever! Everything is awesome!"

Little dogs don't have that and they can't legally buy guns. So they have to improvise. That means a lot of teeth baring and stuff.

Zimbabwe-Rhodesia was transforming itself rapidly into a 1st world economy. It was well on its way to becoming western Europe's high end grocery store.

Yeah, okay, well, I had an emergency bowel resection in October. Some kind of blockage. It was a close call but yay the doc saved me. Since then, I've had a colonoscopy, endoscopy, another colonoscopy, two cat scans, and an MRI. They've all been inconclusive - for sixteen weeks now, no idea what the thing is. Possibly cancer lump. Might be a bad bite of overcooked cauliflower-crust pizza. More exploration ahead.

So, I guess you could say, no news is good news. So far. But I'm never having cauliflower-crust pizza again!

He hadn't even heard of Bruen. This is really sad, but NYS has long since trained its law-abiding citizens that they are not even allowed to own pistols unless the state agrees to license them that right.

112 The first three Quatermass films should be required viewing by anyone who claims to be a science fiction fan.
Posted by: BeckoningChasm

Nigel Kneale was a genius - you can view two of the three Quatermass tv serials on Internet Archive. His The Stone Tape is also brilliant - exploring X Files territory long before Chris Carter came along. Great social critic/prophet too, predicting reality tv and its lurid excesses forty years before there was a hint of it. I still think Paddy Chayefsky cribbed from him in Network.

116 Rhodesia story: Towards the end of the Bush War, the government announced it would pay bounties on terrorists, "Dead or Alive." Some American mercs heard this, grabbed their gear, and ran an ambush that night. They tossed the bodies in a truck, drove to the nearest police station, and demanded the rewards. "But...but..but," sputtered the policeman, "You KILLED them!"
"And that," the merc said, "was when we realized they weren't serious about winning the war."

124 First, never accept leftist verbiage - “email scandal” doesn’t come close to being accurate.

Mrs Clinton had multiple unsecured computer servers with which she was conducting official state business and failed to safeguard state secrets. Among other things.

Notably removal of documents or imagery from a SCIF. There is no internet or email even possible. Somebody stole those documents, or took pictures of them, etc. Absolutely no fucking way they could get on a computer server without black letter law Federal Felonies. USC Title 18 blah blah.

Intent ain’t got nothin’ to do with it. Same with Joe. He never had authority to have any of it, never mind in a cum-stained cardboard box in his trashy garage.

We all heard this because it was set to speaker somehow. She started going into sweet then mushy then sexy, and a bunch of us started gathering and a manager was trying to put it to mute then started extremely detailed descriptions of what she planned for various parts of his body but the manager pulled the cord out ripping the carpet.

That guy had a hard time for a while.

202 I spent the evening chasing down Putin's comment that there is no Ukraine. In his conversation with Tucker he said Ukraine was a construct of the West. I used available online maps [they would much rather you buy a map than view it - anyway] to establish the existence of Ukraine. I found maps from 1850 through the formation of the League of Nations. The url says 1920. There's also a 1923.

The first reference to Ukraine is a German war map from 1917.
I tried to download the 1914 map but it was crashed the browser so I don't know if the reference is there or not.

That's a big score for Putin.

Quatermass's creator Nigel Kneale also did a lesser-known BBC film called The Stone Tape that broke a lot of ground that shows like Fringe and the X Files explored later on.

Kitchen is really beginning to look finished. Picked up a 4X8 sheet of pine-veneer plywood today for 49 dollars, which will become the 4 shelves for the cabinets. Bottom shelf is just a false bottom to conceal the pancake electrical box for the lighting units. Then one shelf placed midway in the cab's. They had melamine-coated MDF board, which would have made nice shelves, but it would have cost 50% more, and left me with a big hunk of waste MDF. Leftover plywood is never really waste.

232
The current IAU definition of planet, which they hammered out in 2006 is thus:

1) In orbit around the Sun
2) Is in hydrostatic equilibium
3) Has "cleared the neighborhood" of debris

Note 1) means this applies only to our Solar System. There is no definition of exoplanets yet.

2) basically means "is roughly spherical/round". Mercury and even Mars aren't technically in hydrostatic equilibrium, but they are planets. A sufficiently massive body could not be odd shaped. You could not have cube shaped object above a certain mass (unless you had some very, very strong and exotic material to hold that shape)

3) When an object gets big enough, it begins to gravitationally dominate it's near neighborhood. You could not for instance, have a massive body in about the same orbit as Earth. There would be collision or ejection event. (You can come close, see Trojan orbits, or "co-orbits" in general)

Indeed.

Imagine a cube about the mass and size of the earth. Imagine the environment near the corners and edges. The local g vector would not be tangent to the surface, but pointing toward the center of mass. Locally, there would be strong side-ways forces.

And those forces naturally push things into a round shape.

275 Robert - you're on the money, and it's even a point of pride to Russians to cite their connection to the Kievan Rus, just as the Tsars always tried to include some reference to the Rurik Dynasty in their claims to legitimacy.

It's a fascinating period of history, especially when you factor in the Tartar Yoke and the rivalry with the Poles over who would be the overlords of eastern Europe.

278 I was with one of the very few that took a public school taught course on Russian and Soviet history in the 80s. I also took three different Russian history courses in college. One was Soviet history to present one was Rajan history from 1805 to 1914 or something. The third course was earlier Russian history.. for sure a major part of the first lessons was an about Kievan Rus. That is where the Russians saw their cultural ancestry and that is where American colleges describe the beginning of modern Russia, as modern as it is, which isn’t that modern.

Absolutely - the Orthodox Church and its culturally Greek-centered worldview was to Eastern Europe what the Catholic Church and its culturally Latin (late Roman)-centered worldview was to Western Europe. The carry-over effect of the Great Schism that persists to this day.

Posted by: AmericanKestrel at February 10, 2024 01:29 AM (S5+ge)

316 313 was the year that Constantine promulgated the Edict of Milan, allowing religious toleration in the late Roman Empire for Christians, and paving the way for the eventual ascendancy of the Church based on the bishopric of Rome. 1517, as pointed out, the conventional date for the onset of the Reformation. Gibson's referring to the overwhelming religious, social, political and economic impact the Catholic faith was able to exert during that time. (Like brokering a deal between Spain and Portugal to divide the undiscovered world between them, formalized in the Treaty of Tordesillas.)

Blame NATO.

In the late '90s, those in the know were complaining about expanding NATO into Ukraine. We made a promise to Yeltsin we would not do that, then we did.

The thing people may not get from Putin's long history lesson is that history's effect on the Russian psyche. Russia was invaded by two major armies bent on conquest, The Grand Armee and The Wehrmacht, with high loss of life and Moscow burned in 1812. Then there's the whole Holodomor event which Putin, I believe, glossed over and was a big reason for Ukrainians viewing the Nazis as liberators and joining them to fight the commies. Ukraine-Russian history is quite complicated, much too complicated for our State Department and those in this Administration.

Except for Trump and a select few others, Putin is miles above our pols in statesmanship. I don't think any Democrat could discourse on American history for 45 minutes, and we're only talking, what?, 400 years or so, not the millennia plus of Russian history.

To this day, I feel we missed a great opportunity after the Wall fell and Yeltsin took over. But our stupid Cold Warrior neocons couldn't take the 'W' and wanted to continue the conflict for monetary gain, hence the problem with NATO from Russia's perspective.

And to add, I grew up in Norfolk, home of NATO's Joint Command headquarters, or at least it was at that time. My friend's Mom was the librarian there and she had a low level security clearance. Had a German army lieutenant in one my college History classes.

Posted by: N at February 10, 2024 01:58 AM (RjBju)

343 322, you said right there in your last sentence that a large percentage of the hoard is for censorship. Censorship of what exactly? Certainly not censorship of Putin and Tucker Carlson so maybe you were talking about something else. I thought I saw someone trying to pick a fight here for some reason and I stand by that so far nothing has changed. But if a substantial number of the hoard is for censorship just spell that out. You said it plain his day in your post.

349 347, low IQ is a cheap shot. I probably shouldn’t have used it. I do think previous Russian leaders, or more intelligent, and more strategic than Putin. He has done something right as he is remained in office forever and I guess he will for life. He seems to know the few chords to strike to keep his country behind him, and he keeps repeating those chords.


I’ve studied more Russian in history than the average person and the one thing I know about Russian history is pain. Putin has delivered a lot of pain to his own people and he will continue continue to do so for as long as he is in charge.

364 Y5. The ONLY time I've seen the Horde step up against your "speech".

When was you focused on antagonizing The Horde by means of micro-argumentative nonsensical picayune antagonisms, which you could dissect by means of your (admittedly) superior argumentative skills.

Vs. any really heavyweight debates over Adam Smith or Thomas Sowell or even P.J. O' Rourke.

When you weigh in with your not inconsiderable intellect on subjects which really matter, you'll notice, there's hardly a pip or squeek issued in objection, thereof.

You can really f'kn' MATTER, when you choose to join the debates which really DO f'kn matter.

And that's when you're really at your f'kn, best, too, you know. Ditch the picayune. You don't need to GO there.

He's swapped out the whole apparatus and it's getting worse as he loses his front teeth. He shaves every night and has the mask strapped as tight as possible, but I suspect his airflow is not what the mask was designed for (he's already had sinus surgery and a uvulectomy). The VA is willing to pay for his dental work, but his provider has to be approved and that could take another two months. So, we wait... and I try to sleep on the couch.

I knew a couple of Ukrainian families in the '50s. They distinguished themselves from Russians then. I worked with three guys (techs) in the '90s who bot really pissed if anyone thought they were Russian. This doesn't apply to the Crimea and vicinity, because Stalin imported a bunch of Russians to replace the Ukrainians he had starved out.
Ukrainians have a real hard-on about Russians. Look up Holodomor.
There's an area, today, labeled "Ukraine" where the people cal, themselves "Ukrainians". Do you think that Texas should be given "back" to Mexico because some map from the early 1800's has "Mexico" written over San Antonio.
