GK Chesterton.jpg

Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere.
-- G.K. Chesterton

Impartiality is a pompous name for indifference, which is an elegant name for ignorance.
-- G.K. Chesterton

Idolatry is committed, not merely by setting up false gods, but also by setting up false devils; by making men afraid of war or alcohol, or economic law, when they should be afraid of spiritual corruption and cowardice.
-- G.K. Chesterton

The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.
-- G.K. Chesterton

Why Vladimir Putin Covets Montenegro
"Probe with bayonets," Soviet ruler Vladimir Lenin famously said. "If you encounter mush, proceed; if you encounter steel, stop."

Like his late predecessor, Russian President Vladimir Putin will advance until he meets steel. Until this week he met mush in, of all places, the United States government thanks to Republican Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky who used an arcane senate rule to block a vote on the accession of tiny Montenegro -- the former Yugoslav republic on the Adriatic between Albania and Croatia -- from joining NATO.

I like Michael Totten. Regardless of his leanings, he seems to exert some effort to learn and to remain unbiased.

Shale Companies Found a Way to Be Profitable
The Dallas Fed just issued its quarterly energy survey, and in it are some special questions on what price of oil shale firms need to profitably operate existing wells, and what oil price they need to drill new ones as well. These prices vary by shale basin (and even within shale basins), but overall it looks like most U.S. shale operations would be able to continue to turn a profit even if oil prices were to drop $20 per barrel, and current prices are enough to profitably drill new wells in nearly every shale formation.

How can this be? I thought we had reached Peak OilTM! Could it be that there is some heretofore unknown force that is exerted on businesses to make them more efficient in the face of market pressure?

Why We Should Bring Back "Ma'am" and "Sir"
The ma'am-haters are correct to object when the title is meant to diminish. But in driving it wholesale from the vernacular, we are raising children who have no tool of language with which to convey respect. And never seeing respect in action, they're less likely to have it at all.

The coarsening of discourse has been a complaint of us curmudgeons for a very long time. It won't be fixed....ever. But that doesn't mean that saying "yes please" and "no thank you" and opening doors for ladies is a bad thing.

After we sold the house and I moved, I invested in a ream of paper, printed them all out and began a roaring fire out in the firepit with them. The ring went in when the fire was at its height, about 20 logs. It felt wonderful.

Highly reminiscent of Black Hawk Down (which was so unavoidable, it was mentioned in-film), which is a big plus --indeed, when I mentioned it to a vet colleague, comparing it with BHD, he said, "Oh, I am going to watch it," I knew I did not waste 2+ hours. Oh, and it's not really political, either. AnyMoron who has not seen it, I encourage to watch and enjoy.

85 Bit of counter-point on Montenegro. Montenegro itself doesn't bring any additional capability to NATO, only an additional obligation. Furthermore since NATO actions require unanimity with major decisions, if Russia is able to control its government via proxy, Russia will then have an effective say in what NATO does. In short, I think NATO itself is obsolete and nations who want to be under our military protection should seek bilateral military ties with us. Just my two cents.

116 In regards to ma'am and sir.


In early 2006, when Dick was courting me, he came up to SE PA to visit.  We went to a local diner.  The waitress called us "hon".  Dick called her "ma'am" and she got all offended.  Her last sentence to us was, "I'm NOT old!"


Call me old fashioned, I like the use of "sir" and "ma'am".  I never used those terms until I moved to Texas, but they just seem to work.  I'll probably use them for the rest of my life, diner waitresses be damned.

122 Speaking of divorce and men getting screwed, a cousin is an exception that proves the rule. He was the son of my mother's kid sister, who was killed in a car wreck way back before I was even born. There were two boys, him and an older brother. The older brother took after his mother, and is nice. The younger one took after his father and is a major league dick. He got married years ago, and then divorced. He manged to take that girl to the cleaners, getting full custody of his daughter and everything. How he managed it, I only heard a little bit about. But it was because he was such a dick. The system will screw a nice guy, but let a dick like him win.

167 So for those of ya'll old folk like me....apparently this is a new thing... Men, whether online or in real life, aren't supposed to ask women for their numbers. They are supposed to give the women their numbers. Supposedly, this is the "sensitive" thing to do so that a woman doesn't feel pressured to give a guy she isn't sure about her number, and she has the opportunity to block her number when contacting the guy. So supposedly, the chivalrous thing to do now is to not pressure the lady into it, but give her your number and put it on her, so if she is interested she can contact you and if not, you don't have her number to harass. I guess I get it. It makes sense on a very, very basic level. But, it does make me sad we don't live in a world where the guy asks for the number, the guy calls, the guy is the pursuer. I was just always raised that way. Times are changing, and it's hard for me to change with them.

183 Just to show you what a true dick that cousin of mine is, he made my mother have to *sue* him about 15 - 20 years ago. Over some stupid property settlement. Long story, but he had a tiny little interest in my grandmother's estate, the house and lot she lived him. Long story. My mother finally sold it, and that cousin was the hold up. She tried to call, sent him e-mails and letters. Nothing. He wouldn't respond at all. His interest only amounted to a few grand. She finally just wrote him a check, and a note. He cashed it. And wouldn't reply. So, she went to a lawyer. The only solution was a lawsuit to get a judge to declare it free and clear. That involved a lot of waiting, letting time limits expire and all that crap. They had to server papers, put notices in the papers and all this crap. He lived in Atlanta at the time, and they couldn't serve him. He was that good at evading process servers. He had experience, I'm sure. Creditors and lord knows what else. The lawyer up here hired some PI in Atlanta to try to get him served, but he couldn't do it, and declared him to be the slipperiest SOB he'd ever run across. In the end, he lost the suit by default. My mother was upset about it, having to sue her own flesh and blood and all that. At the trial, she said the lawyer was going to be all formal, and called her to the stand and was going through the formal procedure and all that. The judge just waived all that, and said, "Ma'am, you mean to tell me that this nephew of yours......" and just talked like "regular folk" for about 5 minutes, doing away with all the legalese. He banged the gavel in about 5 minutes and freed the property.

213 Why We Should Bring Back "Ma'am" and "Sir" The ma'am-haters are correct to object when the title is meant to diminish. But in driving it wholesale from the vernacular, we are raising children who have no tool of language with which to convey respect. And never seeing respect in action, they're less likely to have it at all. Courtesy and respect puts us at a disadvantage when dealing with the left. The few times I've watched television in the past decade, I've been traumatized by Romney curling up like a worm before Candy Crowley, or Chris Matthews abusing Michelle Bachmann. And today, that Drexel professor who was actually offended at an expression of respect. We can't afford to condition ourselves to be polite by instinct anymore.

236 Publius, can relate re: relatives who are dicks. My father, for about 20 years now, has more or less made himself completely unreachable by me and my sisters. This is the dad I've mentioned before, who walked out on my mom just a few weeks before my 18th birthday and right after I had graduated HS. I know where my dad lives, everything. He's in Lake Havasu City. I've been across the street from his house, for goodness' sake. But no matter what we do, he won't respond to anything we send him. His "new" wife (who ironically, has the same first name as my mom, so his second wife has the same name as she does) has a reputation, however, for being ridiculously overzealous and controlling. The belief is that she goes through the mail, the voicemails, EVERYTHING before my dad sees it, and whenever we have a message for him, she destroys/discards it.

249 Montenegro isn't a defensive ally, it's a liability. NATO is ineffectual enough as it is, yet for some reason there has been a rush to add more and more useless members. Meanwhile Turkey has gone off the deep end (yet again). Scooping up all of the former warsaw pact countries over the past two decades has been about advancing the interests of the EU, and pretty much exactly as predicted at the time of their prospective membership, worsened relations with Russia, isolated them and made them increasingly belligerent. Posted by: Sjg at March 31, 2017 10:41 PM (gDSJf) Albania is in NATO, and is not a member of the EU. Montenegro is not a member of the EU either. The European countries in NATO but not the EU are Turkey, Albania, Norway, Iceland, and soon the UK.

It was at some big fashion party shindig, and she said she thought he was just billionaire wanted another notch in his belt or something (words to that effect), and she would give him her number. But she told him to give her his number. She said she figured he would just give her some throwaway number, to some assistant or something, but she said he jumped and started writing like crazy. THis is the number to the apartment. This is the one for the office. This is the plane. This is the house in the country. This is the one down in Florida. Etc, etc. Call me! She said she waited a couple of weeks. And then called. He answered right away, and that night took her to some fancy joint in NYC.

266 The board we're currently using is small, about the size of a loaf of bread, by choice. Controlled by an i-pad Gary has on his mic stand. We've decided to get a 16 channel Midas after another few gigs but until then only have 2 sends, one for each speaker tower. No moniters needed since with the Bose,,, no feedback. Mains are to either side and barely behind me on drums so we hear exactly what the audience is hearing. If this isn't making sense it's because I'm not the "techy" in the band. And don't want to bother Gary with it. He has enough on his shoulders. I'm getting the recording done basically so I can do a self critique. Thing is, when we play there are at least a few pretty "magical" moments and it would be nice to have a good recording of them should they happen. Appreciate the replies.

Don't be a dick about money, don't be a dick about sex, don't be a dick about communication, don't be a dick about family, etc. It worked out well - met lots of decent ladies - sometimes we clicked - sometimes we didn't.

316 Haha. I guess I'm just an old soul. And old-fashioned. So, there is a HUGE disconnect between my sensibilities and the way of the world today. So, I guess that's why I feel so old.

It's just bizarre that's all. Was talking to a girlfriend about it today, and she explained that only the dbags ask for your number anymore. She said if a guy is decent and worth it, he will offer you his. My friend is not a weirdo either. She is a normal person, and even she has bought into this new-fangled way of courting. It just blew my mind.

Pink, if you're hung up on the niceties after meeting a guy you might even be interested in - well, let's just say, you're making the whole thing more difficult.

320 295 Bond flicks? Just re-watched a Bond flick for the first time, "Die Another Day." Call me crazy, I think it's pretty good. Oh wait... actually I've also seen "Golden Eye" twice. Also great. Posted by: qdpsteve at March 31, 2017 10:49 PM Goldeneye is one of the best Bond flicks ever. DAD is... not as good. It probably gets more hate than it deserves, but is not in the same league as Goldeneye. Posted by: otho at March 31, 2017 10:59 PM (lmIoG) Admittedly, I like the set-up for DAD, Bond and his team surfing into North Korea notwithstanding. The best line in that film was the main baddie saying that he went to Oxford and got a degree in Western Hypocrisy, . But after Bond is released from North Korea and after they introduce the genetic switcharoo is when the movie really goes downhill for me. Although the swordfight scene was cool and visceral. It might have been the nostalgia googles, or the N64 game, but I tried watching Goldeneye again just recently and while I still like it, it hasn't aged well for me.

You can cheat a little and add some sour cream to the canned kind, along with plenty of cheese, but homemade is best.

388 Does anyone here have experience with both Match and eHarmony? I am leaning toward the latter. Both charge $ to hopefully keep out trolls and the ubiquitous 'i'm writing a paper on dating and will be using your love notes in my article without telling you.' Posted by: Nathan R. Jessup I was on Match for a while last year, after my wife and I separated (we'll be finally divorced very soon). And that is a bit of a mistake on my part, as most women are leery of "separated" guys, and I can understand why. If you are going on Match or E-Harmony, present yourself well. Visuals are everything. Either take some really good pictures of yourself to post, or have a friend take them. Visuals are everything. After the first couple of months with some dumb selfies I took on my phone, I took a few good pictures of myself with a camera on a stand, and put those on, and the responses were MUCH better. Be discriminating. Most of the women I contacted on Match were pretty Left of Center politically, which can be awkward, to say the least. I did meet someone who I had a relationship with for several months, and it was pretty nice for a while, but I began to realize she was a little koo-koo bananas (OCD), and we did break up (which still sort of makes me sad).

392 qdpsteve, Serious Eats are usually pretty good with recipes. If I don't have a go-to site for a particular ethnic cuisine e.g. Maangchi or Cooking With Dog or Maureen Abood, I usually use SE as a jumping-off point. Can't personally vouch for this recipe, but it can't hurt to start here. http://tinyurl.com/nbxpufe Just be careful if you see Kenji's name on a SE recipe; he really knows his stuff, but seriously cut the salt in half for all of them.

394 I don't know if all of you are familiar with Mark Dice, but I like him. He's funny and has some good insights.

Here, he talks about Tomi Lahren's split from The Blaze...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H05OWcZMLcI

Now, it's worth noting that while Dice is defending a pro-choicer in this video, he himself is pro-life. He just views Grenn Blecch's #NeverTrump-ism as the bigger issue in this particular situation.

397 The whole "Noble Savage" canard is a very old belief. Its all bullshit. The song is a good jam though. Posted by: Puddleglum at March 31, 2017 11:14 PM (pY+s4) It is, in fact, the Garden of Eden myth of the Leftist religion. European colonialism is the original sin, responsible for genocide, smallpox, racism, and industrialism, which led to climate change. In the Leftist religion, only whites of European extraction must repent for their sins.

I should've take a Beano. It was terrible. And I tell what is really terrible with me now. Onions. Raw that is. And I always loved them, but my digestive track is getting old and cranky about them. Cook them for a little bit, and they're fine, but raw, I get cramps. And awful gas. I don't know if the offending compounds get broken by cooking, or what.

Of course he supports WGA but admits everything both sides say during the strike is all posturing and pressure tactics. Posted by: qdpsteve at March 31, 2017 11:14 PM (qazQh) There *is* the issue of residuals for all these new distribution models re: compensation, and Hollywood being *exactly* the evil Capitalist system they project everything else to be, they have a point.

422 Wasn't there a kerfluffle between Uncle Palpatine and someone else a while back? Or am I confused? Posted by: Ladylibertarian That only lasted one night. Some guy wanted to get into the "is morality objective or subjective" discussion, and became belligerent when P was taking a view that he considered too nuanced. Then the guy started freaking out, attacking everyone on the next thread, insulting them all, and promptly got the hammer. Had no effect on Palpatine's activity, IIRC. I think the guy must have suffered some recent emotional trauma. There were certain indications on the thread where he went off on Palpatine. He had been commenting for a while before then, and seemed a solid guy.

If NATO will agree to the accession of the Republic of Torquewrench as its newest member, I promise to stick to spending at least 2% of my adjusted gross income on firearms and ammo. Which makes me a better member than the Germans are.

Also, I'm going to want the U.S. military to be on speed dial to rescue my sorry ass the next time I get in a drunken bar argument, since the whole point of NATO these days seems to revolve around the nation-state equivalent of drunken bar arguments.

I have.  Spent about 5-6 years going to the former Yugloslavia for about a month each year, vacationing.  Made friends over the years and kept coming back.  For me  most interesting parts of the world former Yugoslavia and the 'Stans of Central Asia.

Anyway, long story short.  Drove down from Dubrovnik, ended up at night in the hills over Cetinje  (where a small blonde American female does not want to be) to check out the mausoleum of the famous poet/philosopher   Petar II Petrovic (Njegos). Mausoleum closed.  Like a day/night out of spooky Russian novel.

That said, all of the coastal parts of the former Yugoslavia are fabulous.  And the histories, rich and complex.  Got interested when I read Rebecca West, Black Lamb and Grey Falcon.  To get quick idea take a spin on Wikipedia.

I'm not one to follow the latest health fad, but Japan is a country that smokes, drinks, works, stresses, suppresses emotion until their eyes bleed, and lives alone humping cartoon waifu pillows, and they have the highest life expectancy of any nation. Some legit studies seem to show that green tea and fish plays a part. Could be the pillows though.

562 Posted by: North Atlantic Hat Organization at March 31, 2017 10:47 PM (vBeA5) Most of the major EU expansions in the last 20 years were preceded by admission to NATO. I would contend that the offer of being protected under NATO's umbrella was mostly a bribe to get the EU's foot in the door. The new members have certainly not provided a defensive benefit. Bureaucrats in Brussels expand on their dream of a united Europe while their defense obligations continue to be heavily subsidized by the US. Turkey has the second largest military and sixth largest budget in NATO. As a military alliance it is pretty much a sham.

568 Dragging this comment over from the previous thread: Reusing rockets is a game-changer, no question about it. Until last night it was only a theoretical possibility. Now we know for a fact that it can be done. SpaceX is now the most advanced rocket manufacturer on Earth, and everyone else is going to have to scramble to catch up. I linked this cartoon earlier. It is teh awesome: http://preview.tinyurl.com/lbnqnw7 Posted by: rickl at March 31, 2017 09:57 PM (sdi6R) I get the distinct impression that people simply do not understand the impact on launch providers this achievement has. No other launch provider on earth can compete with this...not even NASA. No one else is doing this, no one else can do this, and no one else was planning on doing this. I don't believe any amount of scrambling at this stage is going to get anyone else caught up. The Chinese technological juggernaut, (which relies on Russian hardware and expertise)....well, they can go back to manufacturing rubber dog shit. The Russians have a five year plan to refurbish their surplus Soviet made rocket engines. ESA has it's Ariane family of boosters....big and shiny boosters, and quite expensive. They have to compete against SpaceX which has slashed 80% off the cost of putting hardware into space. They laughed at SpaceX four years ago, laughed at the Grasshopper, laughed at their spectacular failures...but I guarantee, they're not laughing now.

Posted by: Erik the Lurker, Deplorable Barbarian at April 01, 2017 12:02 AM (q1+kD) That's tough. I don't think they're mutually exclusive, but it tends to favor one or the other depending on the person. In my case, there were some red flags that I didn't understand at the time, but do now with the benefit of hindsight and a lot of research. I was also conditioned to believe that certain problematic behaviors were just a normal part of male-female relationships, when they were not acceptable and shouldn't have been tolerated. By the time I figured this out, it was WAY too late for me.

Western Europe - old NATO - has long since made a conscious decision to be more/less supine in the face of Russian misbehavior.

Are Americans generally welcome? Is English commonly spoken there?

Posted by: F.N.G. at April 01, 2017 12:12 AM (kiSdp)

I was there in the 90s.  Since the war and the big increased tourism I am sure it is different.  Europeans commonly went to certain areas of Former Yugo on holiday. 

My experience generally is that along the coast and in tourist areas English is spoken and understood.  Some kind of English.  My experience also is that small towns in land and in the hilly, mountainous regions very different story.  And can be dangerous.

Are Americans generally welcome?  That's always a difficult question for me.  That's why it's important to know the history and current politics of a country, I think.  OTH, it's often individual.  I traveled solo mostly and didn't broadcast it anywhere that I was American.  Not that I am not proud to be.  Sometimes not the smartest thing for me.

Again, OTH, once in the FS someone asked me if I was scared (I was) and I said "Of course not.  I'm an American".  Like the Marines would storm the beachhead or something.

Or are there signs that something is wrong from the beginning, but they just get overlooked/missed/hidden/rationalized away? this in my case. almost everyone isn't presenting their actual true self in the first few weeks/months but it comes out quickly (your first fight?) and that's when you need to abandon ship (titanic) and not bail water with a tin cup hoping for the best. p.s. i thought i was bitter and cynical until reading this thread and hearing from those had had their lives destroyed by the fairer sex...

683 well, I could have just googled my favorite diner and pancakes. Posted by: yankeefifth Diners are enablers of factory farming, which basically puts animals into close confined torture chambers for the entirety of their short, painful lives, never allowing them to run free as they were meant to. Would you treat your dog that way? Diners also enable farming practices involving pesticides, which pollute the ground water that disproportionately affects underprivileged minority communities. Your diner pancake comes at a very high price of human misery and suffering. Doesn't that bother you at all?

Posted by: Austin Millbarge at March 31, 2017 07:45 PM (B6OKy)

685 OK well another boring one but maybe gracepmc will find it interesting. In the mid-90s the president-for-life of the new former Soviet republic of Turkmenistan had a habit (probably an echo of ancient tradition) of giving spectacular white stallions as gifts to visiting dignitaries. The country (with some reason, probably) sees itself as the heirs of the Horde (the real one, not the AOSHQ one, morons) - thus, horses. (I think one meaning of "turkmenbashi" - the title said president modestly bestowed on himself, is "great horseman of the Turkmen") Anyway, from vague memory. VP Gore visits, gets white stallion as gift. Hilarity ensues between protocol (State) and logistics (USAF) people. Don't recall outcome. Sometime later, Iranian big Rafsanjani visits. Gets white stallion as gift. Decides to get on and ride the fucking thing. Ooops. Horse takes off at a gallop, the evil Persian jihadi war criminal nearly falling off and clinging to his mount. Hilarity, or something else, ensues among Iranian bodyguards. Sadly, Rafsanjani survived the experience. But it made for one hilarious reporting cable from Ashkabat.

Dushanbe was "closed" to visitors because of some occasional small arms festivities. Ridiculous - but the standard at the time. Not long after, in a different locale, one katyusha could close the pool for the night, which was annoying. They almost always missed, and besides looked kinda cool going over at night.

It wasn't easy when you're in college either. Most of the "easy" ones are divorced by now anyway. Finding a soul mate isn't easy, but they are out there. The secret is to not spend too much time with the wrong one, and that means getting into the dating market and knocking them down like bowling pins till you find the right one, and you will know it. Its always going to take work. My wife and I had nothing in common when we met, well very little anyway, but she had the qualities I wanted, and I had what she needed, and we built off of that. It took work, but the result is great. You have to keep at it, nothing good comes from the easy way.

716 675 Sooooo.....funny story about eHarmony. So, I was gonna join several years ago. Got signed up, filled out their questionnaire which at the time, I don't know if it steal is....is a beast. It's like taking the SAT would have taken less time. So, I get done, and it tells me I fall into the 2% 4% I can't remember the number, but this small percentage that eHarmony would be be beneficial for. eHarmony literally rejected me. That was a pretty low moment, not gonna lie. Posted by: Tickled Pink at April 01, 2017 12:42 AM Maybe certain particular choices showed a dislike or uncomfortableness with the on-line or anonymous aspect? Seems unlikely that it would be because of personality or preference. (Unless you had very specific criteria and they felt they couldn't fill them, perhaps?)

First, I have to laugh at the puffery of those CA Presidents for Life.  Same guy in Kazakhstan for how long now?

I can imagine your story Because.... I, a decent equestrian really -- not great but I can handle myself -- went on picnic in the mountains with my staff.  Big to do.  Kyrgyz horses. Not fancy white stallions. Tough.  I was offered, and stupidly accepted, to ride.  Very very tough to handle with any dignity at all.  And lucky not to have fallen off.  Those horses are amazing.  And I can just imagine the Horde across the steps.

I was glad to have survived. Sucks that Rafsanjani did as well. As for the hilarity of the cables, I am pretty sure I was discussed in full ridicule.

729 You can kind of never have too much RAM. I don't know what kind of stuff you're running, but assuming you're running Windows (because you mentioned Excel), you can open the task manager thing and see what memory is allocated to what task. If you see swap usage spike, that's when the hard disk goes *snrrrrk* and wastes your time. Two other things to note are that SSDs are amazing for loading stuff (e.g. complicated spreadsheets) and if you're running a 32-bit OS like some old XP versions, you won't get any benefit beyond 8GB of RAM.

751 Speaking of men in kilts, at the shootin' match I'm going to tomorrow, there are usually 2 or 3 guys in "tactical kilts", as they call them. All of them good shooters. Of course lots of joking about it - and some puzzled looks from the few first-timers. Can't decide between revolver or pistol (1911), so taking both. Match is revolver-friendly (6-shot multiples of targets in each stage).

W/out knowing how much leeway you have it's hard to make a guess. w/out knowing how deep you are into Excel, it's hard to make a guess. It could be a memory problem, a problem w/ too many volatile formulas, a used range problem. If you turn calculation off, make changes, then manually recalc, what does it do? Can you do this w/ this file? Do you have access to VBA?

760 Country Boy, $4.95+.50 per contract. I'm frustrated over eOption. It usually works, but when it doesn't, it's expensive. It's hard to get out of a trade if the bid-ask spread info is wrong. They no longer have a "just sell it now" button. If you hit market price, it enters the appropriate amount assuming the info is correct. If the info is off the trade doesn't execute. I was looking at support articles or emailing tech support or something, and saw some text is Russian. Russians hacked my trading platform!

784 Eh, it's the luck of the draw. Some threads turn gun, sometimes the 'ettes swoop in and it's dresses and shoes, sometimes it turns into seals raping and eating penguins. Sometimes you check out the pet thread for some fun stories about cute silly animals and there are four people who had to put down an 18 year old pet and it gets all misty. Je ne regrette rien.

793 I'm frustrated over eOption. It usually works, but when it doesn't, it's expensive. It's hard to get out of a trade if the bid-ask spread info is wrong. They no longer have a "just sell it now" button. If you hit market price, it enters the appropriate amount assuming the info is correct. If the info is off the trade doesn't execute. I was looking at support articles or emailing tech support or something, and saw some text is Russian. Russians hacked my trading platform! Posted by: Emmie at April 01, 2017 01:23 AM (xVuS6) I had that problem a couple times with MB Trading way back when (they've been bought out now by somebody). They don't sound very reliable, which is key. Sounds like you need to move on, even if you end up paying a little more per contract. It'll be worth it when you need it. How are you doing? I haven't done anything since my election day trade.

The big difference in a 'skirt' and a 'kilt' is mostly in how it self-identifies.

Mean ol' "PaPa" made him cry tonight. 

Hot dogs on the grill, he comes in to the house and I lose sight of him for maybe 5 seconds.  He's already reaching up to where the buns are and pulling a bag down.  I let loose a "Get out of here!"  He runs to the other room crying.

Inconsolable for about 30 seconds, then he wants a movie.

803 what the hell kind of question is that? do you get a grade? pretty sure if you answer that one wrong you should get the heave ho from the site. from here too. Posted by: yankeefifth All the questions let you give an answer to the effect of "I am neutral, it doesn't matter". And that is one of the problems with OkCupid questions. If there is a kinky girl out there, I don't want to answer "I think sex should only be for love" and not be matched. If there is a nice girl out there I don't want to answer "I think sex should be for fun" and not be matched. So I just answer "I don't care" to everything, and then it WARNS you, "If you keep answering I don't care, your answers are worthless and it will be harder to compute your percentage match with other people". OkCupid is the kind of site that makes you think, "I just need to hang out in bars and meet people in person, because human interaction is something to subtle for a bunch of questions to match people up".

849 Oy vey. Bet that was an entertaining freak show. Posted by: Country Boy at April 01, 2017 02:29 AM (D2vc1) Well, it is my element, so I'm way used to it. Some people just go a little over the top. Weird piercings , hair styles, overall appearances, etc. The Europeans are insane. One chick had her whole head shaved and tattooed with just this little blond clump of hair in the front. Shit like that. Much boobs too, and not much imagination needed. My idea of mecca anyway.

850 Plus, with the cost of 2-3 nice dates you can get yourself a decent gun. Can never have too many of those. Posted by: Country Boy at April 01, 2017 02:11 AM (D2vc1) Guns can have nice racks, too.

I was in Vegas on Freemont st when a huge punk band gathering was going on. Much of the same stuff you mentioned.

854 Montenegro is located in the Adriatic. It is about halfway up the eastern coastline. Any shipping in port is stuck in a bottle. Ask any WW1 Austro-Hungarian admiral about their success in breaking out into the Med. Shoot, ask that guitar strumming, ballad singing Austrian captain about why his sub got no free pass through Otranto. Would have posted screed sooner but was hanging hardiebacker in a warped bathroom. Very trying.

873 Always be nice to your bartender, as you never know when he will show up 8 years later as your cable repair guy. This actually happened to me 2 days ago. And he installed CAT 11 cable to my house, which is bigger and beefier than Amy Schumer after 6 hours at a Mexican restaurant featuring Taco Tuesdays at $.99 a pop.

Posted by: GnuBreed [/i] [/b] at April 01, 2017 12:17 AM (wTwJ2)

874 We have a couple of Mexi'rants nearby that does the $.99 Tuesdays; they serve chips and salsa plus all the tacos you can eat. These are not wimpy Taco Bell tacos; they are loaded with meat and cheese and plenty of lettuce and tomato to fluff them out.
 
You show one of these tacos to a Taco Bell employee, and they will cry in shame. I think Taco Bell counts the individual shreds of cheese they put on each taco, with that number not to exceed 9. That's an estimate, but a fair one.

875 Subway does the same thing. Order a BLT and get 2 small strips of Bacon on your sammich. Why bother?

I don't shop at Subway. We have way too many good PoBoy restaurants in the area. My fave is a little deli called Ben's Deli that serves up an awesome roast beef poboy for $8 plus tax.
 
Twelve inches of artery clogging goodness.

878 Don't go to Subway anymore. Why pay $6.50 for a glob of 3 day old veggies? Make em yourself for a lot cheaper. Prices increase and portions get smaller. You are wasting money on fast food.

879 878 Prices increase and portions get smaller. You are wasting money on fast food.
 
For the most part, yes. There are a few deals out there that will push you to match on cost, counting the time/labor/energy factor.
 
For the most part, I prefer to make my own. But I also consider a bit of eating out as 'entertainment budget'.

Posted by: Tim in Illinois at April 01, 2017 05:48 AM (d76uN) If I spend around $20 on Italian cold cuts (that I like) and some imported provolone (which I may have on hand anyway), roast a red pepper or two, get an onion and buy some medium hero rolls, I can get 4 quality subs out of it. Easy. (Plus, I always have hot peppers in the fridge). I don't buy an Italian hero out anymore.

Posted by: RickZ at April 01, 2017 12:57 AM (hkdnQ)

881 There us a local sub shop that makes subs that weigh far more than a Subway sandwich.  A  medium sub (about the size of a foot long) must weigh 4 pounds.  Never ordered a large sub, can't guess what the size must be...Go there at lunch time and you have to take a number a wait.  Subway is good when traveling, and you just don't know the area your in and want a decent sub.

883 Clicked on the "I dare you" link. No biggie, as I would gave had to click again to fire up the caterwauling. Immediately under it and "Recommended for you" was a link for "Life As A Girl With A Penis" by Stef Sanjati. What the hell is in my profile that put that on the front burner? * shucks sock *

886 "I like Michael Totten. Regardless of his leanings, he seems to exert some effort to learn and to remain unbiased." HA! What a load of Horse Shit. Totten have gone fully over the rainbow and blocks anyone who isn't wiling to go #neverTrump or sit in obliged silence as he does. He has no interest in being unbiased or to learn anymore. He is purely about sucking up to his liberal friends.
