Friday Night ONT [Ben]
— Open Blogger

Well, well, well morons. Only 32 days until the general election. Have you done your part? Mitt Romney has been attending fundraisers, rallies and events every day. He spent weeks boning up for the debates. He's keeping up his end of the bargain. Are you?

Per DrewM, the GOP is making a big push tomorrow for volunteers and voter contacts.

Facebook Link

Also, you'll notice the Romney/Ryan election day volunteer link in the sidebar. Find out if you can take half a day off on November 6th and volunteer. The only way we're going to win this thing is if our ground game beats their ground game. We need people at polling stations to monitor for fraud, work strike lists, give rides to elderly voters and make election day phone calls to get out the vote.

When November 7th rolls around, are you going to be able to honestly say to yourself that you did everything you could to prevent a second Obama term?

Oh and Mitt Romney is surging.

The Balls On That Guy!
Seriously. It took a lot of balls to say this to POTUS's face.

Potus stopped to meet people waiting for him, where he did the requisite hand-shaking, high-fiving and the rare baby-holding before going on to chat with proprietors at Turczyk's Meats and the adjoining Larry Vilstein's, Christopher Bakery and Edward Badbuster & Son. He then asked the proprietor at Rolston Poultry how business was going. "Terrible since you got here," the man said. Pool could not get close enough to the Rolston Poultry man to get his name or political affiliation. Potus didn't appear amused by the sentiment.


Japan's LED Stacked Cubesat Will Burn Morse Code Into The Heavens

If you thought cloud writing was cool, then how about a message from space burnt into the night sky? A group of unassuming cubesats recently left the comfort of the ISS and joined Earth's orbit -- among them was FITSAT-1 (aka Niwaka), a four-inch-cubed Japanese satellite covered in high-powered LEDs. Its mission is to broadcast the message "Hi this is Niwaka Japan" in Morse code, using bursts of intense light to draw dots and dashes across the heavens. FITSAT-1 was originally planned to appear only over Japan, but a flurry of interest means it'll be touring the globe, starting next month. It'll also find time for its studies, beaming VGA images snapped with an onboard camera back to Earth, to test a high-speed data transmitter.

Lady Gaga's NYC Restaurant About As Sickening As Her Music

48 That Greg Anthony endorsement is a huge coup for Romney in Nevada. Anthony was a member of the UNLV "Runnin' Rebels" when they won the NCAA championship. To understand how big a deal this is, in NV04, Danny Tarkanian is polling ahead in a "safe Dem" district because his father coached Anthony when UNLV won the championship.

Evening 'rons and 'ettes.  Put in a contract on a house tonight, not to be confused with the new Casa del Crank that was under construction and I have since gotten a release on the contract--there were significant discrepancies between the build and appraise cost that were not apparent initially and I bailed as soon as I could get a lawyer and sufficient cash to appease the builder.  Same general area but 5 acres of land (as opposed to about 1/3 an acre), a pond, and about 1400 extra square feet of living space.

Also, I cannot wait to vote TFG out of office.

100 "Also, you'll notice the Romney/Ryan election day volunteer link in the sidebar. Find out if you can take half a day off on November 6th and volunteer."

Take half a day off? Volunteer?

Hell, out here in Commiefornia, the typical large-city public employee union contract employs a couple of people whose role is that of "coordinator" or some such circumlocution. These people do no work on behalf of the general public, ever. They solely represent their fellow union members' interests.

On Election Day, those people aren"t having to ask for a half day off. They work a full day, with full pay, on "union business". Which is, of course, doing ground-game GOTV for public-union-allied Democrats. While having their salaries and expenses paid for by taxes on the public at large.

You can see how insidious that is. Want to stop it before it spreads further? Then genuine GOTV volunteering in opposition is absolutely key. As for stopping it here in CA? Forget it. This state already went full retard, and will not be fixed short of a final cathartic collapse and bankruptcy.

104 If that is really Lady Gaga, I am so disappointed. I love working out to her music! She may look like the average woman in America (comment #8 at 10:09) but when you're rich, famous, young, and make your living half-naked in a public arena, get your damn ass to the gym. Jeez. There is no excuse for that. On the other hand, she is an Obama supporter so maybe she's waiting for a tax-payer funded gym membership and a lunch menu plan from the 1st Lady.

195 I thought the shortage of "summer" gas was due to a refinery shutdown in the Bay Area because of some EPA law? Sorry if I'm vague on the details, I just glanced at the previous stories, just one thing I don't miss about the state

It's all complete horseshit, kb.  They are lousy with gas, it's just not in the proper formulation for them to legally sell it until the (epically stoopid) "summer gas" season is over.  Again, that senile crank in Sacto could change it on a dime.  My guess is he's waiting for a blowjob from somebody.

Start e-mailing friends in other states and bitch about having to wait in line for an hour to get gas. Leave comments at non-political web-sites about gas lines, gas shortages, not being able to get gas because you have an even number license plate and it was an odd numbered day (remember that shit?) If you live near other morons, have a meet-up at a gas station and line your vehicles up and take a picture and post it on facespace about the long line to get gas. etcetra We could do this

I'm working the polls all day Nov 6th.

 

On September 24th, we had a special election for selectman.  Ours is a tiny little suburb of Providence, just over the border in Massachusetts.  Republicans outnumber Democrats by a small margin here.

Out of approximately 1350 votes cast, we found that only about 1300 voters had shown up to cast a vote or had voted absentee.  The Democrat won by 35.

Even in our little town, vote fraud happens to the tune of four percent.

I'll be damned if it happens again.

Whenever a district shows more votes cast than could possibly have been cast and the fraud delta is large enough to swing the election, the result need to be voided and a new election held.

This is a idea that should be pushed from the bottom up at all levels.  I don't see how the Democrats could possibly object.  Its a lot harder to support blatantly fraudulent post-election results than it is to bitch about pre-election stuff.

My stepdad had a diesel back in the early 80's, and since our house used heating oil, he installed a pump on the tank for our tractor. That tractor barely moved, but he filled his car up from that all the time.


He even had an underground gas tank that I used to fill my car up from time to time. That tank was for our other tractor, that got as much use as the diesel tractor.

274 Why is it that motorcycles get zero respect in the "green" crap discussion, hmmm?

1) Peons are supposed to use buses.
2) Workers can use trains.
3) Elites can afford the cool vehicle powered by unobtainium.

Motorcycles don't further message #1, #2, and aren't pricey, so fail #3. (Ok, Harley's and other collectables  -can- be, but they're cultural Kryptonite.)

Note also that although they aren't -advertized- and accepted as green ... places like Seattle have a shitload of liberals on scooters. That is: People that decided to do it themselves, while still not proposing it as an actual widespread solution.

280 Wired published an article talking about "dilithium" crystals being developed to space travel... The author talks about how "Lithium-6" is six covalent lithium atoms and how "Lithium-6" is a stable molecule of lithium. Lithium-6 is neither a "a stable molecule of lithium" nor six lithiums bonded into a dingle discrete molecule. It is an isotope of lithium with three protons and three neutrons, in contrast with Lithium-7 which has four neutrons instead of three. http://tinyurl.com/9aekcw4

A harley is no bargain in the MPG area. If you put enough fuel into them you'll be getting 25-30 mpg. They run them way way lean from the factory to get them up into the 40 mpg area, but as soon as you get some fuel into them to make any kind of power and get them running a tad cooler they start heading to the 30 mpg mark. They got big pistons. lol

Motorcycles have much poorer emissions controls than cars. They'll use less fuel and thus emit less CO2, but only fuckwits care about CO2.  Motorcycles emit tens of times more NOx and CO (actual problem emissions, not fake problem emissions) than cars which use even twice the fuel.

326 Funny/odd thing at the UFC fight tonight. One of the fighters got arrested for an outstanding felony warrant from another state. Turned out to be an assault charge in Iowa. Media reported the guys arrest and that he was off the card. Dana White, the UFC promoter, flipped out and goes on twitter yelling at the reporters calling them dumbshits and guarantees that the guy will fight. He then spends all day trying to bail the guy out of jail, but Iowa kept dragging out the process until it was too late. Kinda funny picture of UFC trying to bail the guy out from an assault charge so he could go straight to the arena and fight.

I didn't say unmodified, I said as soon as you build any kind of power and get away from the factory fuel settings the gas millage goes down. I hear it all the time from people who wonder what happened. To get the plugs that nice tan color requires fuel, and it takes more than they give it from the factory. I used to have dudes pulling up on new evos and the pipes would be glowing cherry red under the guards from being too lean.

360 Didn't know that about Verne Gagne (that he killed a fellow dementia patient with a body slam). How horrible. And the Von Erichs were all sorts of tragic. 5 brothers and only 1 made it past 35. I think 3 killed themselves. The 4th was a possible drug overdose. And they even had an older brother died as a kid from electrocution, so there really were 6 brothers. The Von Erichs were huge in wrestling. But it all ended quickly and horribly. Kerry Von Erich had a horrible motorcycle accident and lost most of his foot. Wrestled for years after that before he shot himself. The one that got toxic shock got it from surgery for a wrestling injury. I think he later killed himself with a purposeful OD. I watched a wrestling DVD on this once. WWE eventually bought their tape library from their promotion (WCCW I think).

367 When I had my aircooled VW Beetle years ago I had two engines for it.  A hotrodded monster and a bone stock 1961 vintage 1200cc 40hp engine.

The 40hp 1200 would get just over 40mph on the highway in a 1971 chassis and whatever the stock 71' tranny gearing was.

The old 40hp wasn't a stump puller, but it would shove the beetle up over 70mph if you gave it a bit of time to get there.

1961 engine tech, in a 1971 chassis stomps the shit out of most cars on the highway today in MPG.

386 WWE, and pro wrestling in general, are gonna have huge problems as the brain research keeps showing that it's not just concussions but the sub-concussion brain rattling that appears to be doing so much damage. It seems likely that the normal "bumps" that wrestlers take dozens of times every match are doing non-trivial brain damage. (Bumps, for non wrestling geeks, are anytime a wrestler gets tossed or slammed or falls to the mat.) It's not clear how to even have pro wrestling without bumps. That's the spectacular violent part that the fans love. Maybe they can go back to old-timey grappling holds and leg locks. That'll bring in the ratings.

There's modern cars that weigh in the 1800lb range, like the beetle did, that only come close to what the old 40hp engine did.

You could add 400lb to the beetle's weight and still get 40+mpg...because I was always carrying 400lb worth of shit in it when I measured the mpg.

Its more than just safety equipment.

420 3.55 for 87 in the burbs of New Orleans. Our local winn dixie (supermarket chain) has a deal with the Shell stations. For ever 50 dollars spent at the grocery you get 5 cents a gallon off. Sometimes the winn dixie has promotions that if you buy a certain item you get an extra 5 cents a gallon off. Right now i have 65 cents off per gallon  on my rewards card. So that will reduce my gas to under 3 dollars a gallon on my next fill up. (20 gallons max) I am single so it takes a while to work my way up to a decent discount (booze and smokes dont count towards your grocery tally.) but a family that spends major ducats a week on groceries could rack up some savings quick.

421 Which part of the periodic table?

When I was an experimentalist, it was focused on Chromium and Boron. Hexavalent chromium is like much worse than trivalent chromium. Which is still much worse than atomic chromium. So the question is: Is there anything one can add to an incinerator flue to affect what we're getting -out-?

Aluminum compounds are used in solid rockets. Boron compounds manage higher energy densities. But they don't -burn- very well. Why? And wtf can we do about it?

Then I was a theoretician. There I focused on the lanthanides and actinides. (Where there were literally -no- reaction rate predictions for swaths of the table).

QUOTE:
“When they debate, Barack will smoke Romney,” Barthwell, a district court magistrate in Michigan, said in an interview published by The Daily on Tuesday.

"Mitt Romney is smart,” he continued. “Having said all that, I still think he’s going to get smoked. The best he can do is hopefully come out not looking like a fool. Mitt will find out the hard way as soon as they have their first debate: You don’t debate Obama

I was born in '79 and still have that mentality. Can't say why, but I've been an old man for a long time while my body is playing catchup. On the plus side re: 1979, I have no memories of the Carter presidency.

Posted by: StPatrick_TN is a Chemist at October 05, 2012 11:58 PM (lJJMb)


Since my back surgery in 04, I have felt like an old man, but I started lifting weights again a couple of years ago, and I don't feel as old now.


You are very lucky to have no memories of Carter's term. Back then, MrCaniac, Sr. was a very good southern Democrat and was excited as hell that a southern Democrat was elected President. He even met Carter on a plane flight going to Atlanta. MrCaniac, Sr. decided that he would follow the President's advice by turning the thermostat down to 65 degrees. I don't think he did it to support the President, but he was very thrifty when it came to spending money, so he had the President backing him up when my mom complained. By 1980 though, he became a Reagan Democrat. He still supported Dems in Virginia, but GOP at the Federal level. I'm glad I was just starting to sprout my short hairs when he became President, and was a horny teenager and college student when RR was President.

Jinx, tell him what nobody told me when I did that: If you do not want to pursue education beyond a bachelor's degree, Chemical Engineering provides a much more lucrative future, along with future professional certifications (e.g. a PE) that increase income.  ChemE's make almost twice the money of BS Chem grads out of the gate.  If he wants to pursue an MS or PhD because he loves chemistry and wants to study it as his vocation, that changes things, but requires a huge commitment and a special person to finish the job and do it well enough to be a teacher to others who share that interest.  FWIW, I have a bachelor's in chemistry, started from the bottom, and know what follows for him if he follows that path.  You're one rung above the biology majors for decent jobs, but that's about it.  It's still promising, but not to the extent of the ChemE.

In fact, my wife and I went to a Raw house show in Jacksonville not long ago. I played baseball through college and all pitchers got intro music and hitters got walk up music. My intro my sophomore year was Vince McMahon's walk out music. No Chance In Hell!

It'll be long, hard work at the bottom of the totem-poll, but having publications will do more for his resume (for either Grad. school or work), like demonstrating that he can get and publish results in a scientific journal. I would also strongly suggest that, if his school has a glass blower on campus, to start learning glass blowing. There are few good scientific glass blowers left and they can easily make $100,000+ salaries once they've been trained. And since most of the good glass blowers will be retiring in the next decade or two, he stand to make a freakin' crudload of money if he does glassblowing. Hell, If I were 18 again, I'd skip college and apprentice at a master glass blower.

Totally, because the independents have to pay the bills. They have to pay for the gas, and the repairs. My brother's FIL drove a truck, not his own, and is an ass sucking leftist, because like the rest of them somebody else footed the bill so he could care less. Of course he didn't have to deal with the operating costs of the truck he drove, so like a typical leftist he must think it happens by magic.

Much like ChemE, that was not mentioned either.  Any kids willing to go into skilled trades at this point are practically guaranteed good incomes and constant work.  I was happy to see R^2 pushing that by linking up with Mike Rowe's foundation last week.  We have a shortage of welders, pipefitters, plumbers, etc., but Teh Won wants every kid to take out loans and get a useless psych degree.  Why?  I can't say for certain, but four years of university indoctrination certainly would provide more fertile soil for future Dem votes than young men and women who worked with their hands, making things (e.g. They Did Build That) than those who have to go to work every day and achieve from ages 18-22.

Where I am, south of Nashville, is very pretty, especially when the leaves are turning, or when we get the rare snowfall.  Out East, where your people are, is just beautiful.  That's the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, and there's so much untouched land out there that if you're in the right spot, you can get up on a mountaintop and see forever, with not a speck of development.  I love development and applaud it, but it's still very neat to look across miles of mountain and forest knowing that this is what it looked like for the past several hundred years.

573 Colt Cabana's The Art of Wrestling podcast is pretty good. He's an independent wrestler, though he had a brief stint with WWE as Scotty Goldman. The podcast is just Colt interviewing other wrestlers and talking about the life and business of being a pro wrestler. Some old guys, some young guys. Some of the stories are pretty damn funny. Cabana's other claim to fame is that he's the real life best friend of CM Punk, the current WWE champ. They started together in Chicago doing the indie circuit and Punk obviously made it to the top with his straight edge gimmick. Cabana also does a kinda funny web series on youtube called Creative Has Nothing For You. Short skits, few minutes long. Some are pretty funny. Wrestling has plenty of stupid things to laugh at, so no shortage of material.

Once I get off the interstate, if the weather is right, the windows do come down and the radio gets cranked.  That's one plus to me driving home at night now - the air is cool and sweet, and I get to drive this twisty road at high speed with the tunes up loud.  No matter how rough the day was, by the time I get down the other side and pop my ears (it's approx. 1000 feet up, then another 1000 down to get to my little suburb), I feel pretty damned good.  Add that commute to Williamson County, TN being the DailyCaller.com's "most conservative county in America" and stupid-low property taxes and it should be clear why I love this place so much.  The bright lights and big party of Nashville are close, but far enough away for some good "out of the city" stuff.

I've driven the Permian Basin in TX on I-20, has to be the longest stretch of nothing I've ever driven

I-95 was built through forest in NC, so it's like driving one long tunnel. Then you flat swampland near the SC border. It's kind of cool at night though when you can see the lights of Pedros from miles away in that darkness

591 One of Cabana's stories was about wrestling indie shows in Mexico. Working small towns in northern mexico that are basically run by the drug cartels. And the white American wrestlers job is to play the evil, racist, Mexican-hating bad guy for the local Mexican good guys to beat up and the crowd to boo. Takes some balls to go to a narco-town in Mexico, climb into a ring, and start insulting everybody and shouting about how much Mexico sucks and Mexicans are lower than trash. Luckily Mexicans dig wrestling and are in on the act. But there's always got to be some fear that somebody in the audience doesn't totally realize this is just an act.

That is what pisses me off about the media. Romney passes by a house flying the Confederate flag and they report the flag as though Romney was up waving it.


Ben Jones, Cooter from Dukes of Hazzard, runs and is elected as a Democrat to Congress while using the "General Lee" in his campaign material, and he is just "reaching out to blue collar voters". I would bet that if Mooch wore a Confederate flag bikini to Panama Beach, the media would talk about how fashionable it was and outreach to the Florida cracker population.

Anywhere but the mountains out east, I wouldn't pay an enemy to visit from mid-June to late August - it would be unsporting.  I've had  the rubber seals around my windshield and doors on the last truck melt.  It's HOT and HUMID when it's bad, but the rest of the year is a breeze.  In the mountains, it's way different.  They have cool nights, even in summer (camped out there this past August, 68 both nights), but the winters are seriously nasty.

Unemployment is back down to where it was when President Lightbringer took office.

Never mind that when he took office he was handed the worst economy every and a disaster of an employment situation.  Now that we are back where we started things are looking great!

We are now back at those numbers and that means we are back where we started.  So techinically Obama is running as the challanger and in his next first term he will fix it.

No skin off my back.  My great grandmother, way back when I lived in rural IL, made sure that I rooted for the Chicago teams exclusively.  She watched the Cubs every day on WGN with my 4 year old self, never missed a Bears game with my 4 year old self, and didn't care about basketball or hockey. Hence I don't care about the former, and am bi-supportive of the Blackhawks and Predators.  The rest of my Irish-Catholic family made sure that before I could brush my own teeth, Notre Dame football was wired in.  It all worked, and my loyalties are unshakeable at this point.

623 It's late, and it's quiet, and I'm shootin' it with a bunch of morons......but I'm getting washed over with an odd yearning.....




So much of what we see can't be believed, so many "businesses" have economic models based on stupidity or fraud, so many of our virtues are disparaged and our vices celebrated....."public service" is akin to "date rape", and institutions are more interested in feeding themselves than in the noble purposes for which they were chartered.




.....and I'd just like to knock off the bullshit for a while. We're buried in PC and procedures and forms and bureaucrats and fraudsters. What happened to Good and Evil? What happened to the rule of law?



When the Federal Reserve buys paper not "backed by the full faith and credit of the United States", why isn't it gone in milliseconds? That's what the law says, they must. When Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are rolled into the US Treasury, why isn't someone gone? For years, they had "not backed by Treasury" on every financial report.....then *poof* they're rolled in.....but not consolidated.




We're living in a time of shadows and bluffs, and I'd just like to be able to get to work on something real.

624 I repeat myself from the earlier thread. I know you Morons have no attention span, and have already scurried into this overnight thread to discuss topics no more serious than Christina Hendricks' breasts.

It is not that Barack Obama does not wish to continue as our President. He is merely troubled from bearing the sins of our hate-filled racist nation upon his broad, bronze shoulders. He is the multiracial Messiah, yet like those "international bankers" in the New Testament did to Jesus, America would rather destroy Him than accept Him.

Even Jesus had his moments of doubt and pain. Therefore it falls to every loyal American to ask themselves "What have I done today to help my President?" Accept Barack into your hearts.

Until tonight, I had given them $325.00. I upped that to a full $675.00.
They need it. It's barely within my range. I did it. I don't regret it. It's what's needed. May Romney Ryan achieve the money they need to put this sad fool (Obama) away.

Anybody who is serious about this race will pony up at least $180.00 - or they are pure bullshit talkers.

658 And, trying to interject some good cheer.....let's talk about the San Diego beer-brewing scene. If you don't know Stone, you should. Their whole thing is to knock your f'in' socks off, then stomp you a couple of times so you'll remember. I have not had anything from them that wasn't Out. Stand. Ing.



And on our little sojourn to the south, I pick up a few brews, including  "Mermaid's Red" from the Coronado Brewing Company.....sounds innocuous, right? Au contraire -- has more hops than either of the two microbrew IPAs I also picked up on the trip. As the label notes: "satisfying to the tail's end."



So there are some righteous brewers out in San Diego....but the odd thing is, you can't grow hops for crap until you're about 300 miles north.

667 648 Open Blogger,

This is the THIRD time I've opened my wallet to Romney Ryan.

YOU convinced me. You're right. They have been doing their part!
What the fuck have I been doing????

Until tonight, I had given them $325.00. I upped that to a full $675.00.
They need it. It's barely within my range. I did it. I don't regret it. It's what's needed. May Romney Ryan achieve the money they need to put this sad fool (Obama) away.

Anybody who is serious about this race will pony up at least $180.00 - or they are pure bullshit talkers.

There's nobody

Feel rike a bird in a cage
It's kinda sihry
But not rearry
Because it's fihring my body with rage

I'm the smartest most crever most physicarry fit
But nobody else seems to rearize it
When I change the world maybe they'll notice me
But until then I'rr just be ronery
Rittle ronery, poor rittle me

With his fist in the air and his head in the sand
And he's never been able to learn from mistakes

And his honor is pure and his courage is well
And he's fair and he's true and he's boring as hell
And he'll go to the grave as an angry old man

The Unobtanium level donation includes a flaming skull mug, a canvas tote bag with a silk-screened illustration of Malor's ass, and a life cast in melamine made from Pamela Gellar's rack.

I'm interested in the ass thing. How about a freebie? You know you want me. Everybody loves Barry. I'm the "Poochy" of Preznits. Hip, sassy and in your face.

754 I know Obama is interested in donations sourced from newlyweds' wedding gifts and festivities. I might be able to send him some used rubbers from my honeymoon. Oh, wait, I'm not a Democrat. I don't save such things. I don't know what Obama thinks he could do with those things anyway. He can't become pregnant. I'm pretty sure.

758 this just in -- attempting to have sex to beebop would be a crime against humanity, a crime against nature, and would probably lead to an alien specie going out of its way to destroy the earth.

I am pretty sure squirrels don't listen to beebop.  And now that I have, I am very worried that I may never have sex again.


next time I get a wild hair to expand my horizons and try something new, I think I will ask a few questions first.

781 why does it take balls to tell the SCoaMF that he's a SCoaMF?

Look up "Joe the Plumber" for a quick answer. Then again, with SCOAMF's star falling, not as many people would be willing to go after the man.

I'm thinking of moving there. How do you like it? Any gangsta culture or homeless there? It's getting bad here in CA.


And re the gas issue: EPA is heavily involved as well as the state eco freaks. They will get to it, I'm sure, ASAP, after a study and a task force and due diligence.
