Overnight Open Thread (12-29-2015)

Quote of the Day I

By my count, there have been more than 100 movies made. And yet, despite this staggering number of attempts, Hollywood has still only managed to make one good one: The Fugitive, starring Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones. I mean, it has everything: fugitives, one-armed murderers-for-hire, trains, beards, dramatic standoffs in tunnels, Harrison Ford, Tommy Lee Jones, Harrison Ford confronting a corrupt doctor in front of a hotel ballroom filled with his peers, Julianne Moore for a second, everything. It should be on TV all the time, instead of just almost all the time. The Fugitive is the only good movie.

Don't believe me? Look at the evidence.

-- Danger Guerrero at Uproxx who grudgingly acknowledges at the end that there might be a second good movie as well

Quote of the Day II

It's a good thing he didn't shoot into a group of crows.

It would be awful to murder a murder.

-- Bob Owens on the WI Rep. who killed two birds with one shot and got cited for it

Quote of the Day III

Naturally, despite their obvious skill and inventiveness, the castaways never quite manage to put together a functional raft out of bamboo...

-- Gilligan's Island - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote of the Day IV

In sum, Samuel Jackson knows nothing about Christianity, Islam, medieval history, the Reformation, Vietnam, the Troubles, or American police departments, and the only people who would take his thoughts (or lack thereof) seriously are those who know even less. The dumb lead the dumber.

In other words, he's one good rant away from a MSNBC anchor gig.

-- Ian Tuttle on the deep thoughts of Samuel L. Jackson

IKEA Furniture Test Proves Girls Are Dumb

Well not quite but men do seem to have the edge at spatial problem solving.

The study asked 40 men and 40 women, all university-aged, to put together an IKEA kitchen cart by themselves. Some people got copies of the assembly manual. Others only had a drawing of the final cart.

With the instruction manual, men and women assembled the cart in about the same amount of time on average, and at roughly the same level of quality. Both genders took around 23 minutes to put the cart together, and on average they only made a few small mistakes, like forgetting some screws, for instance.

For those without the step-by-step diagrams, though, the difference between genders was dramatic. Men took around 24 minutes on average, but women took over 28 minutes, a difference of over 20 percent. Had the researchers not cut people off after 30 minutes, the gender disparity might have been even wider. Women were also far more likely to have major problems with their kitchen carts, like missing a shelf or a railing.

For some reason Jazz Shaw seems to have difficulty simply accepting that men on average are better at spatial type of problem solving and that furthermore because of the wider variability of men when it comes to intelligence-related skills the top 5 spatial problem solvers of a mixed group are likely to be men - as are the bottom 5 as well. Men and women are different in some areas and that's okay.

Paul Saunders on Our Current Bartleby Commander in Chief

Polls show that most Americans believe that Islamic terrorism is winning and a serious threat to the US but President Obama remains unconcerned and simply not very interested in battling it.

When President Barack Obama acknowledged in September 2014 that "we don't have a strategy yet" to combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), he stunned his supporters and detractors alike. Obama was similarly candid nine months later, when he announced in a June 2015 statement, "we don't yet have a complete strategy." But why not?

Three reasons appear paramount. The first is the president's defensive approach to foreign policy. On too many issues, President Obama seems primarily motivated by what he wants to avoid rather than what he wants to achieve. Consider Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine and Iran, where Obama has sought to avoid military operations in recent years. Libya is the exception that proves the rule, in that the American role in deposing Muammar el-Qaddafi seems to have validated the president's instincts about the perils of what he terms "military adventures."

Secondly, Obama too often resembles a pedantic law professor: he is clearly quite skilled at pointing out the flaws in his subordinates' proposals. The problem is this: a professor's job ends at that point; a president's starts. Yet this president's avoidant foreign policy seems to prevent him from going further. Finally, Obama does not intuitively understand the exercise of power-not just how and when to use it, but its foundations, its psychology and its consequences. The result of these three factors is a "none-of-the-above" policy assembled from the shards of discarded options.

And no this isn't a photoshop - this is an actual graphic put out by the White House:

WeaponsMan on How ISIL Has Changed the Human Terrain

The US is simply not playing hardball, and is not playing to win. We don't think that the Powers That Be want the Islamic State to win, but we're hard pressed to name a single thing they'd have done differently if that's what they wanted.

...In any event, here are the presentation slides in .pdf format for those who are interested. Note that this is a large download (11 megabytes). But we pretty much guarantee that if you read this through a couple of times, you'll be better informed about this rampaging group than anybody else at the New Year's Eve party. Which might not make you any more popular, but there it is. IS_Overview_CAOCL-Nov-2015.pdf

Key take-away for us: the human terrain is not what it was when we were actively engaged in theater. US buggoutery, ISIL information operations, and the self-serving actions by all the various nations and factions in the region have permanently altered the human terrain in the area of interest. 2016's problem is worse than 2006's, which is worse than 1996's, which is worse than 1986's. And the fact that we now can see, in crystal hindsight, the errors of those years, is a small thing that does not alter the unpleasant set of choices we have presently at hand.

39 Three reasons appear paramount.

They seem to have missed the main reason: ISIS is obama's pet project. It's what you get when you ship arms and funds to the muslim borotherhood and successfully (if temporarily) overthrow the governments of Egypt and Libya. They're the only available force to unseat Assad which he is for some reason strangely obsessed with, so he has no reason to want to hamper them.

All the folks in congress and throughout the feral government with MB minders see it the same way, regardless of what they may say.

73 They're the only available force to unseat Assad which he is for some reason strangely obsessed with Under Bush there were pro-Zionist factions that dearly wanted Assad gone, because Assad was supporting Hizbullah and Hamas. (Since at the time we had Iraq more-or-less under control I agreed with them.) Obama has never had any interest in keeping Iraq under any measure of civilisation, and he's never been much of a friend of the Tribe either - so what might explain Bush (and Romney) can't explain Obama. I think what's going on with Obama (in this context) is that Putin wants Syria, and Obama doesn't like Putin.

I can better decipher a map and program a computer and fix a dripping sink, and other such rudimentary tasks - that she could probably handle okay with a few tries and enough time, but is happy to let me do guy things. But even though I am okay as a cook, given known ingredients, I am in awe of how she can look in the kitchen, and where I see nothing to eat, she can easily manufacture a grand multi-course meal.

219 @ Mike Hammer..... nah, though I ended up at El Cubano Cigars later in the afternoon, some "real life" intruded, and so Chemjeff wasn't initiated hazed by having to suffer the agonies of enduring the torture of a fine cigar. So, I'll smoke another one tomorrow, to make up for the lack. Chemjeff's first ten rounds, at 7 yards with the .22 Browning Buckmark UDX, could be covered with a standard playing card. Well done. He had a bit more challenge with the Glock 17 and S&W Model 28, mostly adjusting to the greater recoil and muzzle blast. But, he didn't quail, and kept making a serious effort to shoot them well. He's a good and conscientious student, and will make a good shooter if he sticks with it. As for my end.... I used a B-27 target at the same 7 yards. My eighteen rounds from the Highway Patrolman, could be covered with a quarter for the entire group. I was less precise with one magazine from the G-17, as the head shots were as much "pattern" as "group"... about two inches wide, but about five inches of vertical stringing. I'll have to install some of the trigger upgrades that Tam describes on her gun blog. But with the Browning .22 Buckmark, I also turned in a dime-sized, fifteen round group at the same seven yards. So yeah, I'm still in on the accuracy, but that's about all the shooting my shoulder could enjoy for the day. And that, sucks. Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

246 ChemJ: Intermediate barrier penetration, penetration in general, expanded diameter all play a part in why different calibers are chosen. Basically, if we were all perfect all the time, a .22 would be fine if you could sling a bunch of rounds really quick between the eyes. But realistically that's not how it works, and you have to go with center of mass hits, which require a goodly amount of penetration and some amount of diameter for wiggle room. But caliber wars are a big thing, and one I don't think I want to get into right now.

258 Recoil management is actually a big part of shooting, and why we start with .22. It's easier to focus on one thing at a time (accuracy first, recoil later). With time, you'll be able to sling some big boolets.

295 This is the best comment I've ever read on the Desert Eagle, "The Desert Eagle is a horrible overweight, overpenetrating, underperforming piece of crap. The only thing I can see it genuinely useful for other than an "OSHITABEAR" emergency backup is for some kind of pseudo anti-martial purpose and even then I'm pretty sure there is something else that would work better."

296 Queeg was actually a Lt. Commander, by rank, but Captain of the Caine.

A minesweeper and a minor combatant.

The original captain of the Caine became an O-6 and Captain of a light cruiser, if you remember the end of the movie.

302 As a green-as-grass handgun shooter: Don't be afraid of recoil. It won't hurt you. Unless maybe you are shooting a .50 Desert Eagle or some such. What recoil does do is add to the time it takes to re-acquire the target. A 9 mm has much lighter recoil than I expected. Trivial, really. Practice a bunch with a 9 mm, and you should become pretty good. Try several different makes and models of pistol. They aren't all the same, and some, for whatever reason, will be better suited to your hand size and temperament than others. All other things being equal, a longer-barrel heavy pistol will have less recoil than a short-barrel, light one. Simple physics at work. If you really have issues with 9 mm, look at FN5.7, or .22 Magnum.

She has kind of a screamy style but I'm her voice could work in any genre. Just a question--do you have any artists you like despite the fact they perform in a genre you don't like?

307 Eleven, you're totally right on that. I have a long and sordid history of deer hunting with an iron-sighted handgun, as well as PPC, IDPA and 3-Gun competitions. Taking large game with a pistol pushes that adrenaline fueled stress button, but obviously, the deer ain't shootin' back at me. But if you read the actual, first person writings of the gunfighters of the 20th century, you do discover that practice....lots and lots of practice, pays off when the SHTF, and that you really can focus on your front sight and sight picture in most instances. I've never had to pull the trigger, but I have had to, on three occasions, see that sight picture. I'll just say that the practice paid off, the sights were clear, aligned and steady....and that I'm awfully damn glad that the orders given resulted in compliance from the miscreant serving in the role of "target" at that time. And yes, the after effects from the adrenaline dump are pronounced, to say the least. Short of it though, is you're likely to fight like you train, so train well. That means finding quality instructors, and not some random range commandos. Good instruction isn't cheap, but what price for your life? Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX P.S. The newer interactive, video based police simulator systems are said to bring that stress level to 98%/99% of street reality. I've not got to run through one of those yet, but guys I know and trust, who have, swear by 'em for stress training.

316 Recoil never bothered me. Until I did a lot of shooting one day with a 12 ga, and woke the next morning with a big blue bruise on my upper arm. You see, I wasn't holding the damn thing right. After that, I learned to properly brace it against my shoulder.

     I'm still bad to do that if I'm not careful. When I was sighting in the scope on my new LR-308 a couple years ago, I almost pulled the same thing. However, the arthritis started warning me before it got too bad.

    My biggest problem is the damn noise. Thanks to Hollywood, every idiot thinks "silencers" completely kill the bang and make it go "pheww, phewww!".

    However, I noticed something about a trust. Actually, we've already got a trust of some sort set up (inheritance and all that shit). If I ever get a round 'tuit I'd see just what would be involved.

   From the cursory glance, registering it to trust does not require the sheriff to sign off on it.

It's pretty easy to suppress your ears; much more so than the rifle. And those modern muffs with the electronic noise cancelling block the sound of shots while letting conversation and ambient sounds pass unimpeded. Or even enhanced.

In the book, which was the first of the Bond series, and arguably the least-gimmicky Bond novel, the game at the Royale des Eaux Casino was Chemin de Fer, which plays a lot more like blackjack than poker. Fleming explained it very well in the book.

In a conflict of interests between two equally-non-privilege-checking classes (such as a BLM activist being shot by a black policeman), both sides are correct simultaneously, and neither side is wrong.

Guess will get back to the writing.  Suddenly decided to name each scene written so far with which character's POV that scene is with a number following.  It has certainly made things pop out on who is getting the most scene time.  And let's me know where I could flesh out things with another scene for a character to move the story along.

417 Alberta Oil Peon.... I got to hear Lightfoot, live...was about 1990, in San Antonio. I think I heard him at the end of his voice being good enough to perform. But damn, he was good. Best singer-songwriter? Dunno, I think there's some better. Best poet to ever put sonnet to song? Contender, at least. One good test of your favorite.....read the lyrics as you're playing the music. Then read the lyric on it's own, as a written poem. Read it aloud, like you would at a poetry reading. If it holds both, and moves you, you've got a winner. Most of Lightfoot's work was right in that groove. If you don't think Canadian Railroad Trilogy wasn't an epic poem, you're only mistaken in it's length, it's not Homer's Odyssey. Carole King is right up there with 'em, too. Dear GOD, she could write directly to my soul, and often did. And Kerry-ite jerk that he is..... James Taylor was a hell of a writer. I can take a pass on his performance, but the man could write. Don't overlook Billy Joel, either. Not the hits, but the other tracks on the albums. The man could write, like him or not, but he could write. And the Elton John/Bernie Taupin collaboration. Just damn, but they nailed it more often than not. But finally, I'll agree with this. Johnny Cash was the best singer/songwriter of our time. We were blessed to have heard him. Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

443 I'll amend my # 417, to admit that Willie Nelson is very nearly as good as Cash. Very close call. But Mr. Cash could move the spirit and soul in a way that Willie, for all of his abundant gifts, didn't quite possess. That takes nothing from Mr. Nelson's beautiful words, lyrics and performances. His compilation album "Ballads" is definitive. But vs. Mr. Cash.... it's Mr. Cash by a chord at the home stretch. Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

448 AOP, yup. The 2006 movie updated the game to Texas hold'em. I personally love THE, but wouldn't have minded if they had been faithful to Ian Fleming's book. Posted by: qdpsteve at December 30, 2015 01:11 AM (ntObR) Man, I don't even recognize Texas Hold 'em as poker. I used to play a lot of poker, dealer's choice, with friends, back in the day. Gave it up when it went from nickels and dimes to dollars. I enjoy the bullshitting, and the social interaction, and the bluffing, and you can get all that with penny ante, nickel raise. And with those stakes, you can lose all night, and not go home broke. But ain't it just like Hollyweird, to take one of the key elements of a novel, and totally fuck it up?

450 AOP, pretty much about Hollywood. :-) IMHO hold'em is definitely poker, although it's a bit artificial; it supposedly became the #1 variant played today by far, because it offers so many more betting rounds than classic draw poker. So theoretically at least, bigger pots can be built up. Having said that, would love to play draw in an actual casino some day. Unfortunatley I've read the average age of a casino draw poker player in 2015 is "dead."

Eh. Have mixed feelings about CR. It's not a BAD Bond movie, it's more engaging than the 2 prior ones. It just isn't... Bond, anymore. Mads Mikkelson, or whatever his name is... made the movie as Le Chiffre. Take him out of the equation and the rating drops a fair bit. I dunno, it's a decent enough movie, but, it's just pretending to be "Bond" (yeah, I know the book... whatever... Bond books are different animals to Bond movies). I place most of the blame for this squarely on Daniel Craig. Worst. Bond. Ever. It's an ok entry, at best. Which is quite an achievement considering it's a Craig movie. What follows is... well, you'll see.

You can't go wrong. Many, many rock musicians owe a debt to Elmore James. Also T-Bone Walker. He basically invented electric blues guitar.

I want the dancing girls, the gun barrel, the volcano lair and the supervillain with insane motives (and the quasi futuristic clothing and the sharks with frickin' lasers...) and I certainly don't want Bond to be some whiney, emo grumpy gus. Bond, not Bourne. Maybe it's just Craig, that bugs the shit out of me. Simply putting on a tux and offering quips does not make Craig... Bond. But, yeah, I enjoyed CR, despite my bitching.

507 Daniel Craig brings the grit, violence and necessary darkness to the Bond character, but lacks the bon vivant, enjoyment of his trade and essential sophistication that Connery brought to the role. Brosnan was too much the Pretty Boy for Bond, and Moore should've played the Bond in Retirement series. But, back to Daniel Craig. If they every make an epic movie about Vladimir Putin, (whether good guy or bad), then run the buzz-cut clippers over Craig's dome, and he's perfect for the role. Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

515 Rock and Roll basically is jump blues. And you can find jump blues, and similar tunes by white musicians, as far back as the late 1920's. There are a lot of contenders for "first rock and roll song", but Rocket 88 by Ike Turner and his Kings of Rhythm has to be on the short list, as do any number of tunes by Big Joe Turner, and by Louis Jordan. "Shake, Rattle and Roll" by Bill Haley and the Comets, which is indubitably a rock and roll song, is a cover, slightly bowdlerized, of a song by the same name by Joe Turner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9wTQsAgktg

534 Rock and Roll basically is jump blues. And you can find jump blues, and similar tunes by white musicians, as far back as the late 1920's. There are a lot of contenders for "first rock and roll song", but Rocket 88 by Ike Turner and his Kings of Rhythm has to be on the short list, as do any number of tunes by Big Joe Turner, and by Louis Jordan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9wTQsAgktg Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at December 30, 2015 01:59 AM (UsLZp) There was also country, jazz, blugrass, celtic, and even classical music influences. A little spontanious distortion from an otherwise boring song... https://youtu.be/WCbIAmy6X0M?t=1m38s

536 This was a big deal at the time, because Dylan had made few public appearances since his 1966 motorcycle accident. Posted by: rickl at December 30, 2015 01:57 AM (sdi6R) Because he was strung out on heroin really bad back then. Another junkie? - Bela Lugosi.

548 I should also point out that Johnny Cash's daughter was touring with him at one point in her life, and he wrote down a list of 100 songs she should study if she wanted to know American music. She turned around and made an album in 2009 with her interpretation of 12 of those songs -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_List_%28album%29

I mean really, what's the diff? They all get "refugee" status, which makes them eligible for the full panoply of taxpayer-funded welfare benefits, and will only end up costing us billions and billions of dollars. But we've got money to burn, right? That's why Obama keeps waving in hundreds of thousands more Central American "refugees" across our southern border. Because what's the point of printing up all this funny money if you can't share it with everybody on the planet? Amirite?
