Overnight Open Thread
— Genghis

Chapter XXXXXXXXXVIIIVIIIXXVIVIXXX: “A New Despair: Return of the Prodigal genghis.”

Geez, can’t a person take off a year from this abomination of a nightly thread without you people peeing all over the carpet and driving Maet somewhat insane? I suppose not…that would be too much to ask of you. So, as Ace mentioned the other day, I’ll be pitching in on those nights when Maet’s meds have him otherwise…”occupied.” What did you people do to him anyway? I’m told that he spends a large part of his time these days curled up in a fetal position, rocking back and forth, muttering “the ONT…the ONT.”

(But seriously, Maet’s done a kick-ass job with this mess of a nightly thread and I very much appreciate Ace letting me slither my way back on to the blog. I’m quite certain he’ll regret that decision, as will you)

First, a word from Cyrus in order to fulfill Ace’s longstanding mandate that all posts should contain at minimum 15% ”The Warriors” content:

Photobucket">

”Can you dig the Friday Night ONT suckas?!?”

Let the lameness begin::
I think we’ve all been at a bar and heard this one time or another: “My starship is bigger than yours!” Or maybe imagined we heard that, shortly before the bouncer threw us out of the place via the plate glass window.

But now, thanks to The Starship Size Comparison Chart You can put those tiresome arguments to rest and return to the bar with it in hand and scream “starship envy!” into their faces. And even as you’re being defenestrated by the same bouncer, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you were right. As you bleed-out on the sidewalk.

Been awhile since we checked in on the LOLcat Bible Translation Project. I think that may have been the first tip I ever sent to Ace that he actually posted. And for which he didn’t file a restraining order against me. Sometimes these things slip through the cracks.

But if you haven’t been pious lately, there’s no better place to start with than The Beginning.

(Selection of tonight's ONT theme song forthcoming as soon as my piece o' shit PC decides to quit locking up on me. But it wouldn't be a classic genghis post without at least a dozen things gone wrong, now would it? Figured I'd better get something up before you freaks started gnawing on the furniture. Go ahead and get started without me.)

Tonight’s ONT was written on 100% post-consumer recycled pixels.

23 Anybody else creep out by this Rolling Stone cover? It's a waitress sandwich which brings up the nightmare vision of Dodd and Teddie rubbing up against Flo. Yuck! Poor waitresses. I'm also taken back by this blood crap. It's no secret that TrueBlood is analogizing gay rights to vampire rights. Now, it's blood exchanges between fangers and fangbangers. There agenda appears to be to throw out the ban on gays donating blood.

My recollection is that what was released was a statement by the Secy of State (or whoever) of Hawaii certifying that she had seen it and he was born in Hawaii.  Also a copy of the certificate of live birth.  But not the birth certificate.

I've got to say that comparison chart kind of sucks.  I've seen another one that might not be up to date with sci-fi shows but I've seen one that went up to a larger scale, including the Death Stars and the big giant thing from Halo.  You could also click and move them around to better compare.  I'll see if I can find it.

daft to build a castle in a swamp, but I built it all the same,
just to show 'em. It sank into the swamp. So, I built a second one.
That sank into the swamp. So I built a third one. That burned down,
fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up.
An' that's what your gonna get, lad -- the strongest castle in these
islands.

161 So I have some bad news.  I spent an hour or two computerizing my retirement account statements.  I entered all the numbers into this giant spreadsheet.  I've been contributing to this thing for 10 years, so it saw the downside of the post-9/11 market, the upside of the Bush tax cut boom, the crash from 2008, and the (almost) recovery since then.  So I was curious - through all those ups and downs, did I actually make any money?

The answer was no.

In fact I actually lost $2,000.

On a personal note, my 11 year old son is officially a Moron. The good type. Was in an argument last night with the oldest daughter about something. He jumps in to help her. Oldest daughter turns to him and say thanks for the help with Dad.

 

He turn to her, looks her in the eyes and say “Now you owe me……GO MAKE ME A SAMMITCH!”

I took my semi-unsmart elderly mother to see "The Expendables" today, because she falls asleep if something doesn't blow up or die every three minutes.

She stayed awake through this one. Not particularly steeped in reality, but shit dies and blows up. A lot.

Took her to see "Inception", which I thought was very well done and smart, and she went down like Britney Spears trapped in a bag of dicks.

TO is. Ocho is just an attention whore. I can't help but like the guy though. He's one of the few players that actually keeps his nose clean (and doesn't get arrested for providing liquor to minors a la Chris Henry. Not that we have to worry about him anymore....) . He does a lot for charity (a lot behind the scenes when he's not being all famewhorey). Like this.

Look out, Palin, this governor really can see a foreign land


Can't even write a bloody story about the AZ gov without a swipe (an unfair one at that, as one can see Russia from Alaskan soil) at Palin, eh?

I don't like supplying bandwidth that I have to pay for to other sites, so I deleted the image... The guy never changed the link and my server is constantly getting a request for the image... So I finally decided to force him to remove the image link....

I am now redirecting all requests to this image.

I think the Iranians are just waiting until they have enough enriched uranium to a) load into their missiles and b) put into a small nuke that'll get passed off to the Hezzies or some other terrorist group.

328 I thought that with McNabb gone that the Eagles might rock this year. But then I had assumed that consorting with convicted felons was going to violate Michael Vick's parole and knock him off the roster. Tonight, first time he gets his hands on the ball, he throws an INT.

BTW, I write from my new hometown, Philadelphia on the map but Fluffya in the mumbling mouths of its residents. I'm studying the website cheesesteaktown.com to blend in. So far, the greatest thing I've found is the blonde darling of the banked track, Pretty Judy Arnold, who skated for the Eastern Warriors in the Roller Games league. Pretty was an official part of her name, just like Failure Barack Obama or Sissyboy Keith Olbermann. She's a born-again minister now, 40 years later. But I'm guessing she's repenting some especially shocking and exciting sins from her youth, IYKWIM. Mmm...

Which leads to my contribution to our nightly quota: Hey Warrior... come out and playayay! Warrior Judy Arnold... come out and playayay!

We could all also pick our favorite gang from the Warriors. You probably think you can guess mine, but you're probably wrong. I like the Orphans, the pathetic third-string gang desperate to win the slightest crumb of respect or dignity. I think they're a prototype of the New America Obama has planned/

346 do banks accept the IOUs?

We were led to believe they were, but they refused - rudely, too. And after they got a budget, they delayed signing it. And then they delayed issuing the checks. And then you had to cash them it in Sacramento or send them express to Sacramento. They fucking pay most people by direct deposit but instead of doing it that way, they could hold on to the money for another fucking month.

It's not like they didn't just pay people for 4 months, but it takes months to process and get approvals and they nickel and dime you to death.  So, it was like getting paid for work you did 6months to a year earlier plus OOP expenses PLUS another 4 months.

I hate those fuckers.

Ah, nevermind...the answer is in the FAQ:

But what about the Death Star? That’s too obvious to miss!
First, the Death Star is so friggin’ huge that it doesn’t fit on even the largest chart I’ve made. And that’s even for the low-ball estimate of the size, which brings me to my second point: No one can agree just how big the Death Stars actually were, so there’s no point in doing their sizes.

Because unprotected anal sex, even with a long term partner, isn't high risk.

Saw him at the SM Civic about a thousand years ago.  Very cool.  He sat himself down on the drum riser, put his guitar on his lap and played it like a pedal steel.  Played the crap outta that guitar.  My friend had brought some Swedish (or other random scandi) guys and they kept calling him "Sawa."  We always called him that afterwards.  That chick he had was very cool, too.

I think republicans are more judicious with their money.  they don't care what other people think and can't be pressured into giving money whereas the dems want to be one of the kewl kids and can be pressured because of that and end up being sorry they were talked into giving so much money.

I actually wish someone would run a great campaign and win and do it with very little money.  I think knowing where and when to pounce with an add is more important than blanketing the airwaves.

in ny state palladino is doing a very effective ad campaign.  He was out there before anyone else.

Kit was at Universal, still. But the highlight was when I really worked-up my 3-year-old sister before we got to Jaws, so she was freaked out, hid under the seat and screamed bloody murder.  It didn't help that we sat in the back of the tram where Jaws actually comes up.  Oh, it was epic.

I would endure a back full of botflies and an assfull of tapeworms and I will still crawl to the polls for Fiorina.

Many conservatives might huff and puff over Castle, Kirk, and Fio.

But in the end, are they going to resist the temptation to give the ultimate FUCK YOU to Biden, Obama, and Boxer? Of course not.

2006-2010 has made it inconceivable that I would ever vote for a Democrat under any circumstances so long as I live. I may have to actually register as a Republican, though, to see about getting a better slate of candidates through the primaries.

Report: WikiLeaks founder investigated for rape

STOCKHOLM (AP) — A Swedish tabloid reported Saturday that an arrest warrant has been issued for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on suspicion of rape, and officials said they could confirm "media reports."

The prosecutor's office in Stockholm issued a brief statement saying it "confirms media reports that a foreign citizen has been arrested in absentia" but didn't name Assange.

"The arrest refers to two separate events, one complaint of molestation and one complaint of rape," the statement said.

"The person is arrested in absentia, as there is a risk that he could obstruct the investigation," it said.

Expressen said prosecutor Maria Haljebo Kjellstrand confirmed that Assange, who is an Australian citizen, was the person sought on the warrant. Haljebo Kjellstrand could not be reached for comment Saturday. The prosecutor's office said all information related to the case would be posted on its website.

687 From the NYT no less....

Is President Obama good for the Jews? For more and more Jewish-Americans, the answer is no.

In a Pew Research Center report issued on Thursday and entitled “Growing Number of Americans Say Obama Is a Muslim” (tragic in its own right), there was another bit of bad news for Obama: the number of Jews who identify as Republican or as independents who lean Republican has increased by more than half since the year he was elected. At 33 percent it now stands at the highest level since the data have been kept. In 2008, the ratio of Democratic Jews to Republican Jews was far more than three to one. Now it’s less than two to one.

http://tinyurl.com/28nzzlc

Okay, arhooley.

This is what I done.

Doubt it gets past moderation.

No big thang.  I spent one year at Tisch School, on a scholarship.

Switched to another school, no scholarship, totally different major, after my NYU experience.

Don't worry about "the whole country" being intolerant.  

Worry more about your desire to have any professor, anywhere "validate" your POV.

I'm not saying that NYU professors can't be incredibly parochial in their assumptions and outlook but boo-fucking-hoo!

Make your case.

On the merits.

They WILL ignore or disparage it, if it doesn't fit their agenda but at least make the case for yourself.

Also, if this is a music form that you feel very much about committing to, to the point of evangelizing, you might be interested in hearing any and all criticisms and taking them seriously.

Instead of getting all butt-hurt because some NYU professor didn't pat you on the head for your golden, one of a kind, INSIGHT that "Perhaps because it is the music being made by the same people that the country has been trying to oppress for so long, so naturally they look at it as inferior or subsidiary, but is it possible that hip-hop artists are musical geniuses just as you profess your favorite musician is?"

Such apple polishing bullshit that is, right there...

Talk about received wisdom!

Also, your references to Country Music (not one of my personal favorites, to be honest but I am familiar with the genre) as opposed to "metaphors, double-entendres, and lyrics that persuade you to rewind the song ten times", I gotta say that's pretty laughable.

You seem like a good kid but very terribly sheltered, in cultural terms.

You are right on Washington Square Park, no?

There are tons of new and different things, experiences and people to discover if you just take an hour's stroll away from NYU.

It can't have changed all that much in 10 years or so...

P.S.

I'm not sure that Hip-Hop can be DEMORALIZED.

What?

It can be made sad or lethargic?

I think that you meant DEMONIZED.

But you are clearly not intellectually nor culturally sophisticated enough to make THAT sort of serious argument.

"And maybe it is just because I have been on a hip-hop overdrive for the past twenty years of my life, but when a hip-hop song comes on that has that drum or an 808 I am forced to move, it is second nature that my head begins to bop. Sometimes I hear other genres of music on the radio or when flicking through the channels and I will listen for a moment, but then shake my head and keep flicking through the channels. They just don’t affect me, mentally or physically, as hip-hop does."

You are what, 20 years old?

This is what makes your "head" bop?

Exclusively?

And what kind of weight should ANYONE ascribe to your musical or artistic judgment when you fully admit to being entirely insensitive, in fact repulsed, by any other easy pop genre?

P.P.S.
You might be better served when listening to music if you paid more attention to its EFFECT on you rather than your AFFECT with your peers.

LOL, I don't think I have ever seen a passage in the bible that discusses 777.

But my position has always been that your degree of "religiosity" has nothing to do with whether of not you are a conservative.

But I think ace put it pretty well. "when your belief system causes you to call AC a liberal it is time to reevaluate your belief system".

712 For those that can't get enough of him, this is Thomas Sowell being interviewed on NRO's Uncommon Knowledge program.  It is a 5 Part video series on his new book 'Dismantling America'.

He is in the position he's in because he is a sociopath and is simply happy to be sucking on the sweetest plum along with those who invented his persona.

Heh.  A good analogy is that Obama is like a good movie trailer that sucks when you go to see it and you want your $12 back.

717 Interesting story at NPR about rating your favorite murderer on "the evil scale".

On The Scale Of Evil, Where Do Murderers Rate?

http://tinyurl.com/2a93dbm

Of course they screw it up by rating the first example on the low side using a case that is not murder at all.

And unfortunately there was no way to just go to the matinee because it was only released in IMAX 3D

723 So when Iran officially starts their fueling process, can we just disband the U.N. entirely? They had one important task over the last two decades, and that was to prevent predatory and fanatical nations from gaining control of the ultimate weapon. Instead they chose to use their assets raping children in Africa and propping up dictatorships around the globe.
We need to stop paying dues, stop hosting "dignitaries" and stop colluding with the very people who are bent on destroying us. I know there are already plenty of touchy issues for candidates to deal with, but I'd love to see a Repub/Tea Party-type address this mess. Pretending that the UN is just a nuisance, as most cons do, is shortsighted. It's a dangerous, corrupt and ultimately evil organization that Americans should have nothing to do with.

Oh, and that Assange story seems kind of too good to be true, timing wise, but the dude certainly looks like a diddler and a deviant, so who knows?

BTW, is 777 the opposite of 666

No, because what makes 666 so bad is that its a double whammy.  Not only does it use 6 but there are 3 of them and 3 is half of 6 making it bad too.  So I think the opposite of 666 would only be 7

733 andycanuck: Thank you. Cautious, my ass! One, people always lie about sex. Two, he's facing criminal charges so again he is motivated to lie. Three, he is a proven liar because he contracted other sexually transmitted diseases. The jerk in the article did not do it to help people but to stick it in straights faces. He's a psychopath. They just started this heavy duty blood all over the place schtick on TrueBlood. I know this is their hidden agenda.

734 Forgot to add: The story said the guy immigrated from Israel. He mentioned that if he came out in the Army reserves he would get a beat down. Did he mean the IDF - the ones we are always lectured that are cool with gays in the military? From what I've read by the rank and file in the IDF, if you are gay, you keep it to yourself.

But he won't.

I fucking feel that.

His vision is skewed, he would be just as happy to be the Leni Riefenstahl to the next Sinaloan narco-terrorist...

Or, get a job at the State Department..

Whatever, same difference.

No?

Now I have to hit girls.

You all have no idea how much I suck at hitting girls.

Got my ass kicked by Laura Tauras when we were both wearing snow-suits, in 7th Grade and she pushed my face into the only rivulet of running water in the fucking county, in February one year.

Learned a lesson I did...

All or nothing.
