Overnight Open Thread-Debt Limit Free Caturday Edition [CDR M]
— Open Blogger

'Sup 'rons and 'ronettes! Hope y'all are all having a fine weekend with friends and family. Hot as hell here but the A/C is kickin'. Without further ado, on with the ONT.

This Sunday starts the annual feeding frenzy on the Discovery Channel known as Shark Week. In light of this, here's a timely piece that covers the 20 Greatest Sharks In Pop Culture History. Land Shark should've been far higher on that list. I dare SyFy Channel to air Honey Badger vs Mega Shark and pay Christina Hendricks to star. Ratings bonanza. Guaranteed.

What A Car Crash
It's not often one get's to write this, but this was one hell of a car crash. Enough to make even the strongest car lover tear up. Million Dollar Car Wreck In Monaco. I bet the lawyers got there before the EMTs.
The collision, involving a Bentley Azure (worth an estimated $400,000), a Mercedes S Class ($120,000), a Ferrari F430 ($230,000), an Aston Martin Rapide ($230,000) and a Porsche 911 ($130,000), occurred in front of Monaco's Place du Casino, according to Sky News.

Foolproof Birth Control


Some Pop Quizzes


First up, a George Constanza quiz. Think you can remember some of the jobs he had?



This quiz tests how well you can remember some of the 80's video game sound effects and be able to name the game. It was a little harder than I thought it would be. Try, Name That Video Game


Training Video Of The Day
Tonight's handy helper video is Jenna Marbles who gives us some insight in how the ladies get ready for a date. Damn this is funny. WARNING: Some harsh language.


Caturday Stuff


This song goes with the above cat image.


Fine Art Submission
This is some pretty cool bird art done with hands. Guido Daniele Hand Bird Art. So, um, CAC, can you do this with your breastage stuff?


War Pron
Yes, time for some war pron. JDAMs, bombs, harsh language. And a little Jimi Hendrix.


Star Wars Blu-ray Deleted Scenes.
I had heard of some of these clips but had never seen them. I wonder if they've been added to the movie or left as an extra.


Obligatory Christina Hendricks Post
Well, she is in the news. Christina Hendricks To Design Swimwear Range. Hmm, hmm.

3 Looks like that Dobies left ear got damaged somehow. It isn't the pretty ones that you really have to worry about.

The toughest and smartest dog I ever knew was a miniature collie (though about 1/2 again larger) mix named Brownie. He WAS brown and would sit quietly while his pal Fritz would entertain the patrons of a corner hangout but when people got rowdy it was Brownie that would dart in and take bites at the participants.

Everyone liked Fritz but they respected Brownie.

Good dog. Crossed over to Rainbow Bridge years ago. Still missed.

The repair bill for the vehicles was estimated at around $160,000, reports said.

Wonder what the deductible is for all those cars?

11 I would imagine the deductible costs considerably more than the value of the car I'm driving, but it's probably less than they lost at the casino.

Posted by: no good deed at July 30, 2011 05:14 PM (mjR67)

16 I think that may be why I never had kids. I lived with too many friends who had just had kids when I was just out of the service.

They were between 0-6 years. I watched all that the commercial showed happen and decided that having rug munchers wasn't for me.

So I blame my lack of children on MY FRIENDS!

People like to crap on ET as the "worst game ever" (I actually enjoyed the game as a kid) but the 2600 Pac-Man port easily bests ET for the title. I vividly remember plunking out $30 from my allowance for that piece of shit and the grave disappointment I felt mere minutes after having plugged the cart in.

He lost her. He had a date to dance, finally, and he didn't make it. I mean we knew he'd live because they had that whole "my cells regenerate so I can't get drunk" part, but then it was sad how he lived.

I don't know, the boy was all caught up in the moment or something.

48 36 So Captain America has gone emo?

No.  Perhaps it is because...the Captain and that other Captain didn't get together at the end (of this, I was glad because that "romance" had about as much heat as the last Ice Age)?  Or is it because the Captain's best friend died?  Sorry, but I'm failing to see how a young child would see Captain America as "sad".

I think the boy thought it was sad because he is more aware now of time passing and people getting older etc. Plus, I mean I guess to you old jaded guys the romance seemed pretty stale and stupid, but for the boy he was really rooting for Captain America.

A-fuckin'-men.  The Atari Pac-Man was a hideous travesty.  Really, really bad.  I'll always remember plugging that thing in as a little kid who'd come up on arcade Pac-Man and wondering "what the hell is this?"

It and ET both sank Atari.

Rum, was it the friend part you thought was sad? The boy didn't think that was sad, he was amazed it lasted that long.

What I didn't understand was at the end when his team was toasting him, most of them seemed to be there but I could've sworn 3/4 of them got vaporized in that last battle. Of course part of the problem with the movie was keeping track of who exactly was getting vaporized, the good guys or the bad guys.

But wow, those bad guy uniforms were sorta creepy.

92 Huh, it seems the Smurfs movie outperformed Cowboys & Aliens at the box office.

But the Smurfs was in 3D and had the benefit of inlfated ticket prices to give it a boost.  But it still looks like Cowboys & Aliens is going to underperform by about $15 million dollars.

That's one of those statements that sounds deep and meaningful to people who don't think about them, because if you do think about them you realize it's stupid.

You don't become angry for a purpose-- you become angry because something pisses you off.  Unless you're a lefty, who selectively channels outrage in order to justify his or her own desires and prejudices.  Selective emotion-- to me, anyway-- screams dishonesty.

The Donald is making noise again. Loud noise. I still am not totally convinced this was a publicity stunt, an ego self stroke, or even a half hearted campaign. Mostly I think he likes the sound of his own voice and gets a kick out of stirring things up. Some kind of Media troll, lol.

He claims to be serious this time (echo, echo echo) and says he will enter the prez contest if he does not like the Republican Candidate. WTF? Colossal ego and I guess you could throw in some audacity. There is a lot of speculation flying around about a third party candidate and now it is sounding like it vould become a self-fufilling prophesy. The voter pull would be from the right side, and help the left. A lot. Maybe straight to the White House.

You know the MSM will pick up on this and run with it. After all, something like a third candidate would virtually assure their idol 4 more years. How do we discourage the Donald? Ideas?

195 I wasn't gonna say anything due to the ONT headline, but since somebody already did, read on if you want to know how you are getting boned and the prez is totally off the hook.  Otherwise, go have a drink.

Debt ceiling increase of up to $2.8 trillion Spending cuts of roughly $1 trillionSpecial committee to recommend cuts of $1.8 trillion (or whatever it takes to add up to the total of the debt ceiling increase) Committee must make recommendations before Thanksgiving recess If Congress does not approve those cuts by late December, automatic across-the-board cuts go into effect, including cuts to Defense and Medicare.

In other words, virtually the same as the Boehner deal in the actual cuts, which will likely be back-end loaded (we expect about $10-20 billion in 2012 cuts), but the Democrats get what they want in that it will not require a second debt ceiling hike before Obama's re-elecetion as $2.8 trillion should last well into 2013. As for "future cuts", well, that's easily what Congress is so very good at. Indefinite future cuts that is.

207 My favorite, though, is "Based on true events."

First movie I saw that abused the hell out of those-type of descriptions was "And the Band Played On", an HBO movie based on the Randy Shiltz (sp?) book about the AIDS epidemic in San Fransisco.

It was as if the movie producers made the movie out of the portions of the book that solely blamed the hospitals and "blood bank CEOs" for the spread of AIDS in the 1980s.  What really amused me about that movie was how it "cleanly" it portrayed the decadence going on in the San Fran bathhouses, while in reality...yeah, I won't go there.

Milla cannot be taken seriously as an actress after the Resident Evil movies, at least IMHO.  If Paul WS Anderson wanted to write love letters to his wife, he should have stuck with the traditional methods of that and not used a movie portrayal of a popular video game franchise to tell his wife how special he thinks she is.

If they are relying on an economy swirling the toilet and running another Country Club Republican then I predict Obama will win another term. I hope I am wrong, but at the very least I will never forget a person who not only talked the talk but walked the walk and we must never forget the people who politically paid the price.  Yes, I expect to catch flak for his type of conservatism.  But remember this, do you want to win in 2012?  Then it behooves you to acknowledge what he laid down.

Hopefully never. Video games never translate well to screen because video games are meant to be played, not watched (although many video games have awesome cinematics that surpass a lot of movies these days, IMHO). 

David Jaffe, the executive producer for GoW1 and 2, mentioned in an interview that there was a script for GoW somewhere and that David thought Djimon Hounsou (Juba from "Gladiator") would make a good Kratos for the big screen.  *shrugs*.  But I prefer that GoW would never become a movie as Kratos is already too over-exposed and a movie would just destroy the character, as it would never meet the fan-boys high expectations.

And for the love of God, if a GoW movie is ever green-lighted, DO NOT LET Uwe Boll get his hands on it.

The boy has been taught from a very early age how to behave in a movie theater. He is usually fairly quiet, except sometimes he talks back to the trailers. He doesn't kick seats, he doesn't run around the theater before the movie starts, etc.

It pisses me off to absolutely no end that other parents seem incapable of teaching their children how to behave in public. I don't give a good goddamn if it is a kid's movie--that's the perfect place to teach them how to behave.

My take on that deal is Jack was a Company Man. The GOP knew he would step up when asked, even though Jack Kemps financial plans totally contradicted Bob Dole (a Country Club Repub).  Jack did exactly as planned and his political career was toast after that.  Fast forward to the RINO John McCain and how Gov. Sarah Palin stepped up to save his ass.  History repeats itself.  Seems the GOP is stuck on stupid and willingly sacrifices it's best because "it's their turn" to be president, instead of what is best for the country.

262 "Debt ceiling increase of up to $2.8 trillion"

2.8 trillion ought to be enough to get through 2012, so I think we blinked.  Having cuts that are automatic would also prevent the Dems from having to vote on it while allowing them to demagogue some alternative (of course, it would prevent us from having to vote on Medicare cuts as well).

It's really not bad in the grand scheme of things--no tax cuts and we're talking about trillion dollar cuts now as opposed to a few billion--but since we were fighting over six vs. 18 months, it would be a win for the Dems there.

The boy has been taught from a very early age how to behave in a movie theater. He is usually fairly quiet, except sometimes he talks back to the trailers. He doesn't kick seats, he doesn't run around the theater before the movie starts, etc.

You're a good mom.     There was a young boy sitting beside me during Captain America, but he didn't bother me at all.   The only thing I heard him say was "Red...Skull" in awe when Agent Smith pulled off his skin sheath.  (Note - the way this kid said it was pretty darn cute and even melted the heart of the Ghost of Sparta...a little, mind you). 

It pisses me off to absolutely no end that other parents seem incapable of teaching their children how to behave in public. I don't give a good goddamn if it is a kid's movie--that's the perfect place to teach them how to behave.

They do it in no-kids movies too.  When my sister and her husband took me to see both Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm street, there were at least 2 to 3 infants in the audience and at least a handful of pre-teens in the audience.  And of course they cried and carried a fuss too.  What kind of parent takes infants of all people to horror flicks showing more blood and gore than in a hospital ER and more boobs than at an Obama general staff meeting?

267 When Schindler's List first came out, a lady with what looked to be about an 8-year-old girl sat behind us in the theater.  Schindler's List, no movie for a kid so young.  The kid started to cry pretty early on, as you can imagine, and they left.

Hi, Chemjeff!  Ask me about unpacking around October.  But, I cleared teh old place today, with the help of my amazing seester and her power tools.  Looks better than when I moved in and we have 98 pics to prove it.  Utterly exhausted, I am too old for this shit.

We rent rides to the space station from the Russians, the budget is a pop bottle rocket (the kind that explode), Dick Milhouse O'Bluffy is STILL pResident, communism is rampant, there's no beer in the fridge, we're losing Iraq and Afghanistan and Libya but about to go to war with Iran while the imminent Mexican invasion (h/t Ann Barnhardt) is timed to coincide with the multi-city terrorist nuking (see.. uh...) and the Yellowstone volcano, and Mr Jesus still hasn't been back to visit us, BUT... NOW THERE'S A REAL CRISIS! I bought a bag of ordinary Oreo cookies tonight and the filling.. the filling was about HALF there!! Win The Future? Is nothing sacred? It was, like, twice the thickness of my big toenail. Maybe the cookies were thinner, too, but who cares, that would be a good thing. Is this a plot to force us to buy double-stuft just to get normal stuff? Is this Michelle Obama's latest plan to screw dietary happiness? It wasn't even worth twisting them apart and scraping the filling out. It's not like I can go out and buy Hydrox, y'know? (You don't know? I feel so old!) Maybe I just got a bum bag. Instance is not pattern. But Nabisco, I'm watching you! That is all. Good night.

Posted by: Waterhouse at July 31, 2011 12:08 AM (4R29X)

Meh, we got two more budgets to ding him on before his election to rein him in. If the deal goes down as advertised it will be seen as a huge win for repubs IMO. No taxes and all cuts and a vote on a BBA. The threatened medicare cuts take that arrow out of the dems quiver. We all wanted more but its pretty damn impressive for a bunch of newbies in the weakest 1/3 of government.

All barky got was that he doesn't have to do it again, ever. Cause he won't be coming back

yeah about that...
honestly? I think he is unintentionally doing us a favor.
my hunch is that the Republicans aren't looking too good on this whole issue.
so I'd rather we don't revisit it before the election, and instead focus on specific budgetary issues rather than another debt ceiling fight.
Goal #1 is to get him out of there because only then will there be any real spending decrease.

387 If they froze spending at today's levels for 10 years, the CBO would score that as a $9.5T cut. Thus, any cut less than $9.5T is just a cut in the speed of increase.

There are about 330 million people in the US. Budget deficits are financed by bonds, which are -- in turn -- backed by promises to repay from tax revenue. For every $1T deficit, about $3,000 is added to the amount promised to be repaid by each individual citizen.....be they young, old, infirm, working, unemployed, or infants.

You currently owe $14.3T / 330M, or about $45,000. Last year, it was $40K. Next year, looks like it'll be $50K.

I've been bothered more by teenagers and adults, including middle aged people who talk all the way through movies. I used to go once a week, now go once in a while. The theater manager once even told me that I would be wise to not come on a Friday night. He said they try to control it, but when an employee walks in people stop, then start up when they leave.

The foundation of this budget agreement was written long ago...

Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."

Cowboys and Aliens: A Review

1. Good movie. Sifty Approved: No sucker punches and no liberal bullshit.

8/10 Hippie Punches

Men are men. Women are happy about it.
No moral equivalency with the aliens. No agonizing navel gazing.
Preachers talk about God and people listen without laughing.
Guns are not demonized.
Dogs and kids and family are cherished and respected.
Nobody apologizes for who they are.
I won't spoil anything for you, but this is one of the most un-PC movies I have seen ever.
Go see it so they'll make more like this.

Daniel Craig:
loses a little of his short-man snottiness and plays a good knock-off of Steve McQueen. Not perfect, but you can kinda see Steve McQueen in the background at times nodding his head.

Harrison Ford: As awesome as I have seen him in years. The biggest acting stretch I've seen him make since Regarding Henry. Real acting and real emotion.
You'll love him, you'll hate him, you'll respect him, and you'll want to drink beers with him.
Freshest, most original-yet familiar new character I've seen in movies since, well, Han Solo.

Special effects are good.
Get to see plenty of the bad guys.
Plenty of action of many types.
No grinding, forced bullshit love story that slows everything down.

There is one disturbing part that made me actually have nightmares last night. Be ready for it. Suffice it to say that you will hate these fuckin aliens so bad you will want to kill some yourself.

My son is getting too big for the stroller and when he leans over too far he makes it tip over. Plus its one of those stupid three wheeled types.

We did two miles jog/walk. Family bonding.

423 408 I've never even seen any theater employees try to hush a crowd or an annoying jerk.  The only thing they do these days is stare at you with empty eyes while they hand you your ticket and mumble which theater number is yours.  They also grunt at you to acknowledge they heard your drink order while they stand there, slacked jawed pulling on the ICEE machine handle.

Yeah, more than once i've been tempted to go to the theater near my house and just walk to the video games and play for a while and then just walk into the screen section because there's usually no one there to tear your ticket unless it's fairly busy.

Anyway, as the hour-long doc is wrapping up and I'm thinking "wow, that was GREAT!" comes the sucker punch: an interviewee brightly explains how the atmospheric data Greely's expedition collected, that dozens of his men gave their lives for, and that lay hidden away somewhere for over a century, is now being used to study the effects of global warming and man's impact on the climate.

Bingo!

If there's a major flaw with Captain America it's that it's a total fan movie.  Lots of stuff is there that only the fans would know. 

Yes, in the original Captain America comics, the scientist that develops the super soldier serum never writes the formula for the serum down but memorizes it instead so when he's shot and killed, the formula dies with him.

And now that I think about it, this was never really mentioned in the movie.

Yes. I pity the fool that ever has to read my notebooks.    The e-copies I have should aid in interpretation though. 

It was so secret that everyone only knew a little bit about it.

Doubt it.  Who cares though (other than I and a few other people, and we aren't important)?  It's just a damn movie. 

One more slight bitch about the super serum.  *more spoilers* Apparently, it "rewrites DNA".  wtf?  That isn't blue bug juice, that's retro-viruses, and that is shit that I wouldn't want injected into me even with 2010 technology.

589 War pron with Jimi took longer to load than it took to win the war.  Probably due to the 3G watch fob I have to use down here.  South Africans call it a "dongle".  They don't know why, I asked.

590 67 bottles of beer on the wall,
67 bottles of Chimay,
take one down,
Throw it at the tv while Barky makes yet another speech,
And express your continued dismay ...

Measles Outbreak Triggered by Unvaccinated ChildMoney quote:
<quote>Parents who intentionally under-vaccinate tended to be white, college-educated and have an upper or middle-income level, the study found. Many believe that living a “natural lifestyle” will protect their children against vaccine-preventable illness, according to the study.</quote>

Of all the moronic fucking things I've read...really?  Really now?  "Natural lifestyle"?  I would think the phrase "natural lifestyle"  implied getting sick and praying things turned out well.   Fuck the "natural lifestyle"!  I want my vaccines plentiful and my food and water disease free.  I'm 31.  I've already outlasted the natural lifespan of our primitive ancestors by quite a few years.  Thank you, manmade technology!  Beat nature until she screams like a little bitch!

597 Many believe that living a “natural lifestyle” will protect their children against vaccine-preventable illness, according to the study.

"You're not saying anything 'unnatural' happened to your brothers?"

"What could be more natural than dying after consuming poison?"

598 I would think the phrase "natural lifestyle"  implied getting sick and praying things turned out well.

Obviously, they didn't pray hard enough to please the gods and should be stoned least the anger of the gods fall upon all of us ...

or at least sue'd into a facsimile of rational behavior.  I'm not sure I care which comes first.

599 OK, all together now ...

67 bottles of beer on The Wall,
67 bottles of beer,
I liked that album something fierce when once young,
so please be careful where you put your beer ...


or something like that ...

600 Borders going out of business depresses me.

I did pick up Delicatessen on DVD, an introduction to philosophy, and programming manual for iphone games.

It is already picked over fairly well.  The language books are a pale shadow of themselves and I can't even find the music book section.

Oh well.  I just like going to bookstores, I guess.

601 I like Amazon ... but bookstore as library ... walking the selves until you see something you like that you never thought you'd be interested in ...

602 Daffodils are yellow,
Roses are pink,
I'm happy the dishes,
aren't still stacked in the sink ..

Posted by: Adriane at July 30, 2011 11:58 PM (L9W0l)

603 Ah well ...

Good night to all,
peaceful days, peaceful dreams,
Remember that things,
Aren't always what they seem.

608 In the northern Sinai Peninsula, Islamic militia blew up a terminal along Egypt's natural gas pipeline to Israel.

Obviously, the same pipeline that services Palestinians.
Possibly the same militia that refuses the removal of Cairo's garbage.
/They could build a city or prison wall with the refuse.
