48 Something The Bulls. Not sure what the infinitive of "lutte" is. If it was Spanish I could tell you and would guess "lucha," which means "fight."

Also the artist is better at painting animals than people. That guy looks like he's missing an arm.

It's a good reminder that no matter how placid or docile an animal might seem, pound-for-pound, most animals are far, far stronger than humans.

All it takes for an animal to wreck your day is for *it* to be having a bad day.

60 I loved the Texas Bull and Bear fight in the Lonesome Dove books.

The grizzly comes down to take a heifer and the Texas Bull decides that he does not want to share.

They then have to rope the bull and sew his hide back together.

Posted by: rhennigantx at May 15, 2024 09:45 AM (ENQN6)

61 I like the lighting. The dark clouds in the background provide a nice contrast to the bulls in the light in the foreground. Their colors contrast too with the rest of the scene. Meanwhile the human is in earth-tones which hides him a bit. You don't see him until later. The focus is on all that beef.

63 I'm assuming that this painting is European. I guess that if someone from whichever country he came from (France?) likes it, they have "dark, nationalistic feelings" or are bulls fighting o.k. because lots of non European countries have bulls? Except-horrors!!-there seems to be a white farmer in the background.

74 This is such a complete image to convey the artist's wishes. The accurate musculature of the animals, including the dog, the poses of the bulls as they fight, the impression of unbridled, natural power of the animals is echoed in the stormy clouds and the deep, dense greens of the landscape. Even having the bulls slightly off center emphasizes the sense of movement and struggle as the animals fight for domination.

Brascassat was famous for his animal scenes and landscapes and I can see why.

Two bulls in a terrible tiff
Came to blows at the edge of a cliff
But despite so much at stake
'Twas their names that rook the cake
One was Chuck, the other was Biff

Posted by: Muldoon at May 15, 2024 09:50 AM (991eG)

82 This scene shows the breakdown of civilized disagreement in the first half of the 21st century.

One of the bulls favored the development of "plant-based" and "lab-grown" meat substitutes to stop the slaughter of his kind for food, but the other bull believed that such developments will lead to a bovine population collapse and the pointless slaughter of his brothers due to economic culling.

The incident started as an Oxford-style debate, but the participants started attacking each-other's lineage and the fight broke out when the second bull questioned the accuracy of the records for the first's paternal line.

Once the fight was finished, the debate coordinators continued under Oxford rules and ultimately declared a debate winner.

111 I loved the Texas Bull and Bear fight in the Lonesome Dove books.

The grizzly comes down to take a heifer and the Texas Bull decides that he does not want to share.

They then have to rope the bull and sew his hide back together.

118 Paul had begun to despair over the deteriorating conditions in the neighborhood and could get no help from the city to keep the area around his business clear. That's when an idea struck him. After an infrequent street cleaning crew came through, Camarata brought in a dozen massive planters, each with a huge, spikey cactus growing in it. He arranged them on the walkway so there was no room to put tents up there again. Then he brought in a dozen more. The homeless campers moved around the corner.

120 The Biden administration has told key lawmakers it is sending a new package of more than $1 billion in arms and ammunition to Israel, two congressional aides said Tuesday.

It’s the first arms shipment to Israel to be announced by the administration since it put another arms transfer — consisting of 3,500 bombs — on hold earlier in the month. The administration has said it paused that earlier transfer to keep Israel from using the bombs in its growing offensive in the crowded southern Gaza city of Rafah.

The congressional aides spoke of condition of anonymity to discuss an arms transfer that has not yet been made public.

139 The strength of an ordinary placid dairy cow is beyond what most people think. I had to get a gate closed behind a cow once. She decided the hay outside the enclosure was worth het attention. I was young, big and damn strong and that milker pushed me aside as if I wasn't there. Now multiply that power many times and add an 'attitude' to get an idea of the power shown in this painting.

There's a reason the human in the scene is relatively small. He is tiny and weak by comparison and can have no effect on the situation.

Two items of note:

2. The country also just made headlines by rejecting (under Fico's leadership) the WHO's global pandemic "accord".

Are they necessarily related to his shooting? No. Would I be surprised if they are? Also no.

193 Thinking about the attempted assassination of the Slovak PM - this is a real problem for reformers/MAGA types/nationalists.

You can swap one leftist with another and it doesn't matter. They are act the same in political office.

But our side is made up of individuals, and not enough of them.

If Biden got replaced with any other national level leftist figure it simply doesn't matter. His voters don't care, and if the replacement wins would give the exact same policies as Biden.

But if the same happened to Trump it would be a real problem.

Nobody is reading them, then. Not really. Probably intro and the conclusion, and skimming the rest if even that. If the bookends look good, it passes peer review. Just a guess.

I did this once, in high school. I turned in what I knew was a shitty essay and got an "A" on it. I assumed the teacher didn't read it, because my prior work had been good. On my next essay, I filled the middle of the essay with nonsense as a test. The intro and conclusion were strong, but about 50% of the middle was literal gibberish. Words and sentences, but insane and stupid and unrelated noise.

It came back with an "A." The teacher didn't read the essay. My bet is that the peer reviewers do the same. The institutional affiliation is reputable, the bookends look good, so rubber-stamp it.

I left you a note concerning SA35. Consists of upgrades/improvements. I had the extractor and spring, and the safety and connector replaced. These items are made by Cylinder & Slide and are still available for the SA35. I did this after researching the complaints on an otherwise perfect JMB design. And now back to cow thread.

203 20 ... "Much better than that fucking poodle that won last night."

No poodle bashing! We've had eight poodles over the years and they were wonderful, intelligent, loving pets, whether raised from pups or adopted as senior rescues. Of course, we treated them like dogs, not frou-frou nances.

I know the history behind those poodle clips and always thought they looked foolish unless the dogs were going to retrieve waterfowl from cold water. My major complaint about some breed standards is how impractical and difficult they are to maintain. As an example, cocker spaniels are supposed to be playful, small game retrievers with practical coats, not dust mops that will sweep up every leaf and bit of dirt on a walk. It's not the dogs, it's the people.

Posted by: Kris

While I don't like it, it does have an interesting effect of drawing the eyes to the face, which is a well-enough likeness of the king. This is in contrast to Obama ivy-nightmare painting, where the leaves distract and obscure the face, which is ironic, as it's the most important part of a portrait.

The background of most official portraits can seem boring and pointless, although they can be used to allude to critical moments in the person's life...I shudder to think what the lone item in the background of Charles' painting (a butterfly) symbolizes. Is it GAYYYYYYY, like the sperm vein on Obama's portrait?

Look Phat, shouldn't you have been worried a long time ago? Like when you turned him into the family bagman? Like when he was molesting his near relations, including underage nieces, and posting videos on Pornhub?

287 But there is a huge amount of shoddy research being done whose peer review is crap. The system is there, but I think it is being subverted.

I haven't seen the list of publications being discontinued, nor their fields, but it's well known that one can get any paper published in crap journals that have sprung up mainly so Chinese "researchers" can pad their pub list. These are very different from established, quality journals.
