Overnight Open Thread (12-31-2013) - New Years Eve Edition
— Maetenloch

Well if you don't have anything better to do I guess you can hang out here. But if the cops come by, my story is gonna be that all you people are uninvited intruders who happened to bring along their own malt liquor kegs. And could probably use a good tasing.

Artistic Temperaments

Some of these people I've never even heard of which of course means they probably suck. Let the brawling begin.

temperamentsong

The IRS Doubles Down on Critics

If you criticize IRS officials, you may be subject to all 501(c)(4) electoral and campaign regulations. And the IRS gets to decide if you're in violation and administer punishments.

Those rules restrict even truthful, nonpartisan criticism of IRS and bureaucratic wrongdoing by classifying it as "candidate-related political activity."

For example, if an IRS official subjects citizens to incredibly burdensome demands for irrelevant information just to harass them for their political or religious beliefs, no 501(c)(4) group could later criticize that official's nomination to be IRS commissioner, without engaging in restricted activity. That's because the IRS's proposed regulation defines even unelected government officials, like agency heads and judges, as "candidates" if they have been nominated for a position requiring Senate confirmation. The IRS's proposed rules are an attack on the First Amendment that will make it easier for the government to get away with harassing political dissenters and whistleblowers in the future.

Bastards.

The Best Vine Videos of 2013

The good part of Vine is that the videos are only 6 seconds long so they get right to the point.

A Gadget to Confuse Government Phone Tracking

How do you keep the government from using your phone's GPS to track you? Answer: Have a local GPS spoofer.

The Yosemite Box emits a GPS signal that gives the GPS coordinates of Yosemite National Park, maybe at the top of Half Dome. You simply keep the device near your cell phone when you do not wish to be tracked. If all cellphone metadata had the same address it would make the collection effort worthless. It would be low power so as to get under FCC regulations. Yosemite of course is just a random choice but a nice place for people to think you are visiting and besides you can say that you climbed Half Dome.

Note that this won't prevent tracking via which cell node your phone connects to.

"Why I Hate Solar Panels"

Did I say "damn thing" about those wonderful solar panels?  Yes, I did.  I hate them.  It turns out that the only way to realize a saving on them that's significant enough to offset their cost over a period of ten years is to use electricity only during "non-peak" hours, which are the hours when the sun doesn't shine.  That means that, on weekdays during the seven spring and summer months of the year, I can't run the dishwasher, turn on the washing machine, use the dryer, or engage in any other significant electricity usage unless I want my energy bill to go through the roof.

The engineer in me likes the idea of solar panels but even with subsidies they only make financial sense if you sell excess electricity back to the electric company and adjust your lifestyle around non-peak hours. Still it's probably worth having a few portable solar panels  (say 150W worth) so you can recharge battery packs, phones, etc. in the event of a disaster.

5 Authority Figures No One Realized Were Con Artists

Including the infamous human rights lawyer, Giovanni di Stefano, who wasn't.

He is perhaps the craziest lawyer to ever grace the inside of a courtroom, having gained notoriety for his willingness to take on impossible "crimes against humanity" cases that no other lawyer would touch. His clientele has earned him the nickname "The Devil's Advocate," and a whole bunch of friends in high (or, as it happens, low) places. In the 1990s, he used to own a soccer club with his close friend, the brutal Serbian warlord Arkan. He attempted to appeal for the serial killer Harold Shipman, and -- according to him -- even Saddam was on buddy terms with him.

So, yeah, he's the kind of guy who might be willing to fund his friends' genocide projects if they asked him nicely, but there's no denying he's also the type of lawyer that likes a challenge -- you have to be at the top of your game if you're going to defend the worst of the worst. Except, of course, for the teeny tiny fact that he's not a lawyer at all. Di Stefano never had any legal credentials whatsoever. He's just a random dude who read a few legal texts and started presenting himself as a professional.

The Unusual Origin Of Iconic Dungeons And Dragons Monsters

If you ever wondered where Gary Gygax came up with all the monsters in the original D&D Monster Manual, well here is part of the answer.

It turns out some of the most iconic monsters, like the Rust Monster and the Owlbear just to name a few, were based on a toy line made in Hong Kong and sold in discount stores back in the 1970s. Gary Gygax, the creator of D&D, picked up a bag of these funky little rubber monster figures and the rest is rpg history.

The World's Most Expensive Handbag

Such a deal at just $125,000.

A one-of-a-kind Hermes handbag, made of matte crocodile and Togo leather and featuring built-in feet, has sold for well over double its estimate at an exclusive auction in Texas to become the world's most valuable bag.

The 'Geranium Porosus' bag is believed to have been made in 2010 as part of a Petit H Exhibition, a Hermes project in London at the time that gathered numerous rare materials and fabrics and had the world's best craftsmen create something with them.

The unique tote, which measures 32cm, would have originally retailed for about $60,000 and was expected to fetch about $50,000 at the Holiday Luxury Signature Auction in Dallas over the weekend.

However, an unknown buyer put down $125,000, and shot it straight to the history books.

7 Our Pro-Slavery President? The Department of Homeland Security has been aiding and abetting human trafficking, including of minor children. While some sympathy might exist for reuniting a child with their mother, it is not the job of the Federal government to help people break the law. Of course, human trafficking typically involved drug cartels, and those cartels arenÂ’t exactly known for being really nice people. More: ttp://politicalhat.com/?p=4496

42 Interesting chart of artistic temperaments and geniuses. The only change I'd make is move all of these assholes into the mediocre category. "Musical genius" is overused. Bach, Mozart and Beethoven were musical geniuses. Kurt Cobain was a junkie high school dropout. No one will consider any of them to be geniuses in 100 years. This period of Western culture will be considered an absolute cultural dark age.

122 I honestly don't think there have been many--if any--geniuses in pop music. A couple came close--Dylan, Hendrix, Lennon/McCartney as songwriters, but  the best have been inspired craftsmen who put together a sustained body of work that was often excellent. I also have a lot of respect for the ones who prove it over several decades--Paul Simon, Mc Cartney, Morrissey. Kurt Cobain had gifts but he was fucked up and couldn't handle it. How can anyone call his stingy body of work "excellent?"

Do the math. It started inducting artists in 1986. The music has been sterile ever since.

215 185. If you look at who was behind the Hall of Fame--Jann Wenner, Ahmet Ertegun, Seymour Stein, you'll notice that everyone associated with those men is in the Hall. In other words, if they were reviewed well in Rolling Stone, they're in. If Rolling Stone hated them or ignored them, they're not--or they get in years after eligibility ( See KISS and Rush.) Ertegun was a visionary in the business, but Wenner is a complete asshole.

I donÂ’t want to preach but at our Christmas party a woman who is two or three days older than I am took a good look at me & said I look years younger than she does. I told her I read a book in the late 80s or early 90s about how bad the sun is and wonÂ’t go outside without SPF 30 on my face all year long.

Sure he was. "Genius" is not such a scary word; most think it means an all-around superior being, but really it means a kind of freak dedicated to one purpose, and able to carry it out beyond what others could do. Newton was socially incompetent, and possibly the greatest genius of all time (though Aristotle is a candidate). One definition I like is "an infinite capacity for taking pains." But I also like "one with clear perception of things that others do not see." Hendrix fits the first of these well, but is also a pretty good fit for the second. Try these definitions out against your favorite genius and see how it comes out.

I'm glad about your brother, Carol!

 

I too feel sort of sad when I see old New Year's party pictures. That pic was taken when America was on top of the world and every person in that photo knew it. They looked into the future and saw only bright days ahead.

 

I look into the future and pray we can somehow hit the brakes before it is too late.

279 234, I'm very familiar with the bands you mentioned, and many more. Lately I've been into Porcupine Tree (stupidest name for a good band since Echo and the Bunnymen), and other progressive and metal bands. But I guess what I meant is that rock and roll has lost it's standing as a cultural force. It's fragmented, splintered into  ever smaller targeted  audiences. In the 70's everyone knew Led Zeppelin, for instance. In the 80's, everyone was aware of U2. There is no major rock band these days that everyone knows.It's all hip-hop and teen pop.

310 When it comes to musical talent, you have to distinguish between writing ability and playing ability. Someone who is a savant on the guitar might not be a very good writer with most of their stuff being so-so. On the flip side, you may have someone who could write rings and not be particularly good at playing. Rarely do you get both.

I love rock music and the music of the '60's, but I hold off on applying the title genius to any pop music artist. I honestly don't know how long it will last after the last of the boomers are dead and gone. Gershwin has lasted the test of time - but how many listen to him nowadays? What about Stephen Foster, the most important 19th century American songwriter?

 

Popular music is of its' time and place. That makes it very powerful - but also guarantees that it will fade. I listen to "California Dreamin'" and I am immediately taken back to the summer of '67 (when I was a kid jumping through the sprinkler in the backyard and listening to it on our transistor radio). Does it mean anything at all to a 7 year old now? Or a 17 year old?

 

If the music of the Beatles and the Stones and Hendrix lasts as long and means as much to future generations as Bach does - well, then people will  be talking about genius.

I'm not sure that's true about any of them. They all still did some good songs in the 70's, it's just that they didn't have the luxury of parsing down the sets and sticking the name "The Beatles" on the albums. If you drop the filler and drek from what they put out and just pick the best tracks from each of them, with one good Ringo song, you get what would have been a Beatle's album. The process wasn't so much writing together as the collusion on deciding what songs made the cut. That's where each member tended to reduce the excess of the others. The ratio of good songs declined after they broke up, the collaboration in the writing/recording stage did produce better results, but, they were still able to come up with a couple of truly great tracks each, for what would have been a yearly or once every 2 years LP.

359 Supposedly, Ronald Reagan dropped by  the Monday Night Football  booth one night in the mid seventies and John Lennon happened to be there. According to Frank Gifford, the two of them hit it off, and Reagan had his arm around Lennon as he explained the finer points of the game to the ex-Beatle. Too bad there are no pictures--or video of that meeting.   No doubt it would make some liberal (and a few conservative ) heads explode...

Posted by: megthered at December 31, 2013 09:29 PM (iR4Dg)



I'm sorry to see this. My wife told me not to retire from the Navy because we might find out we really didn't like each other. I told her if that happened I'd get two jobs and we'd pretend like I was still in. Fortunately (for me anyway) this turned out not to be the case. Hard to believe she's been gone 3 and a half years now, I really miss her sometimes. I might have to find out if there is another redhead out there who'd put up with me one of these days.



But until then...it could be worse. You could be working. Like THIS GUY!!!

401 341--spot on. People forget that even though they wrote officially as a team, Lennon and McCartney usually wrote alone. What that means is that each came up with about 5 songs per album. Add one or two by Harrison, and one specially crafted for Ringo--and there's your  excellent Beatle album. That ratio worked the same after they broke up, as Lennon and McCartney each had about 5 decent songs per solo album, Harrison had three good ones on his. I should add, this was after All Things Must Pass, on which Harrison vomited out a half-decade's worth of good songs he couldn't get on Beatles albums...

He was probably a liberal, but like Dylan, he did not suffer fools, and probably had first hand knowledge that  many of his lefty friends were complete and total assholes. Also, I'm not surprised Reagan and Lennon would hit it off as both were personable, charming and funny. Weird how Reagan got shot and was nearly killed only two months after Lennon was killed--both by losers who looked like brothers.

You are not old.

You hit steel targets at 200 yards without a scope. Your hair is black as night. You still HAVE hair.

You're skinny. You're wife is a babe, and you matched me beer for beer at Aviators.

464 425 393- My husband is set to retire in 2 years ( feds) but he started talking about staying longer. That's what started the "discussion". I've decided I'm just taking it day by day. My 87 year old father is living with us and doesn't need this crap. He's a WW2 vet and a hero and will never know about this. Posted by: Megthered at December 31, 2013 10:38 PM (iR4Dg) ................... Nothing easy about a dissolving marriage. I can attest. One piece of advice I will give you is though is if you do bail make sure it is what you want to do and do it. We discussed it 13 years ago and I agreed to stay until the kids were of age. ( one is now 24 and the other is 19). During that time I suppose I could say we both became comfortable in a loveless marriage. In that time I have become somewhat cold I suppose and have no interest now in looking for something new. He is 15 yrs older and in not great health. I wonder if we had done it when we knew should if both of us would be happier. I wish you the best as I know what you are going though.

475 Listening to their solo albums, I don't think there's any doubt that McCartney was the greater musical genius than Lennon. Name one solo album by Lennon that holds up as well as "Ram". McCartney's big weakness has always been lyrics. Give McCartney's new album "New" a listen. It's his best since the 1970s-80s. Very strong songwriting (with some lyrical weakness as always.) And his voice sounds great.

541 Ok, I've lurked long enough. I'm putting in a pitch for Ian Anderson/Jethro Tull. Huge body of work. Pure musical and theatrical genius. Instrumentalist extraordinaire . Still producing at the ripe old age of 66. Not many on that chart can say that.

"It was the very first video that MTV played on air back in 1981. Who ripped off who?"

"The night in Islington was sweet and fragrant.

"There were, of course, no Fuolornis Fire Dragons about in the alley, but if any had chanced by they might as well have sloped across the road for a pizza for they were not going to be needed.

"Had an emergency cropped up while they were still in the middle of their pizza with extra anchovies they could always have sent across a message to put Dire Straits on the stereo, which is now known to have much the same effect."

[this was later revealed to be this song:]

Anyway, I'm praying for sorrowful Morons (God is close to the broken-hearted) and wishing us all better days in 2014. Love ya bunches!

They're going to err on the side of "if it looks suspicious then bust 'em".  The libertarians will have a shit fit and life will go on.

Personally, I expect the main fallout from the POTACALYPSE to be a surge in vagrants in Denver and Colorado Springs over the next six months, with all the associated problems that come with them.

845 Happy New Year, East Coasters, and thanks again to those who chimed in on my research question the other night. Still need to get to the library to see if the Scott Zesch book has what I'm looking for, but if not, I'll email Fort McKavett and see what they've got. *raises tea mug to the Gipper* Miss you terribly, Sir. And I know I'm late to the party on the music discussion, but on the subject of the state of current pop, check out The Baseballs. They're a group from Germany whose schtick is taking current pop hits and rearranging them in a '50s, especially rockabilly, style. It's AMAZING how much better their renditions are than the originals! ('Course, I say this as an oldies nerd....) Good riddance to 2013, and may we all have a better year next year, except for the 404Care wallahs.

864 Yes, McCartney was the best drummer in The Beatles. And judging by that searing solo in "Taxman" probably their best guitarist--or he could have been. The best piano player.  Probably one of the best  bass players in pop music.  Look, everybody remembers his corny, trite lyrics and his silly love songs and shmaltzy odes to whoever he's in love with at the time, but the fact remains that we probably would have heard from McCartney even if there hadn't been The Beatles.

900 Usually I feel some melancholy about the passing year. Not really true this year. I may be becoming so cynical that it just doesn't seem to matter very much. Hope springs eternal, however.

Posted by: Mike Hammer at December 31, 2013 07:26 PM (aDwsi)

901 Not sure if any of the anime/manga horde regulars here here or not, but nonetheless, here my list of best Anime of 2013: 1. KILL la KILL Best anime of the year. Directed by the same man who did Gurren Lagann, it was done in a retro-style with low frame rate, comedic madness, and sans-obnoxious CGI. A challenger appears at a school ruled with an iron fist, wielding a scissor and a living uniform that is a bit on the skimpy side. Outrageous, the show doesn't even bother with trying to pretend it has any connection to reality. Both the story and fights are great, and the fanservice doesn't distract from any of that. Manic and great, this is a much watch series. 2. Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) Mankind hides behind giant walls to protect them from giant "Titans" that seem to exist only to eat and kill humans. The action is intense, and the show isn't affraid to kill of people left and right. The mystery deepens as the show goes along, and you can practically feel the emotion ready to boil up and explode. 3. Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S The second Railgun series. Better than the first. In a world where there are espers, Academy city houses the strongest, including the third most powerful esper, and one of only seven Level 5 espers, but there is much darkness plotting beneath the surface. It has the infamous "Sisters arc." When a "sister" clutches that frog button, you *will* cry. 4. Rozen Maiden The Rozen Maiden are dolls that must fight until there is only one left. The new series is set in a world where Jun decides *not* to wind, and thus grew up alone. But the Jun from the old series and the world where he decided to wind is in trouble with only two Rosen Maiden left. Much darker than the original series, it is also much deeper. 5. WataMote (It's you guys fault I don't have any friends) Total introverted and socially incompetent Otaku girl schemes to become popular and gain friends. This series hits a bit too realistically and hurts because it is true, though it doesn't hurt so hard that it isn't funny. 6. Non Non Biyori A seinen series about a young girl from Tokyo who moved to the countryside. Pleasant and light, it is perfect for relaxing at the end of a hurried day. 7. Yuyushiki Another show about nothing, though it is a "zen" type of nothing. A show about girls who have a club where they do research on the internet. Another relaxing show to watch at the end of the day. 8. Minami-ke Tadaima The story of the three Minami sisters. This is the fourth series, and is as good as the first series. Great sisterly dynamics of silliness. 9. Haiyore! Nyrauko-san W Sequel to the original story of non-Euclidian Lovecraftian gods visiting earth in the form of cute girls (and a trap) in order to catch the harem lead. 10. Servant X Service A show about the humor and shenanigans at a civil service office. It certainly explains a lot... ************** Runners-up Kin-iro Mosaic — A young English girl infatuated with Japan moves there and is friends with a japanese girl who is infatuated with England. Another show about "cute girls doing cute things," but one of the better ones. Aiura — A short 2-3 minute show about "cute girls doing cute things," though thins one has an opening involving Japanese school girls, Steve Jobs, and crabs... A special note for "Tesagure! bukatsu-mono" — The show itself is so-so, but one of the fan-subbers has included a joke-sub that is crazy and offensive, which makes the show really, really funny.

Cato's Top Ten 2014 Predictions:

#1.  More drugs and dumber drugs.  The coolest new one of 2014 will turn you into a zombie, complete with the mindless hunger for the flesh of the living.  If you took krokodil with it, you'll have the rotting to match!

#2.  Democrats create a program to give $10,000 out of the treasury to everyone that registers Democrat.  John Boehner refuses to oppose it and sabotages filibuster efforts.

#3.  China makes a Statue of Totalitarianism in the same style as the Statue of Liberty, but bigger.  Despite quality concerns, contaminated materials, and worker deaths, they finish it on schedule.

#4.  Christian opposition to gay movement's demands that everyone "Bend & Spread 'Em" on command deemed a hate crime.

#5.  Iran drops nuclear bomb on Tel Aviv.  Obama Administration continues negotiating over nuclear enrichment, claiming to be near a resolution.

#6.  Russia buys the state of Alaksa to be the future site of the Vladimir Putin Presidential Library.

#7.  American withdrawl from Afghanistan accelerated due to new rules of engagement and pursuit by one angry local with a board with a nail in it.

#8.  George Soros buys a desk in the Senate Chamber and a vote. New Senate rules amended to allow it retroactively.

#9.  Obama super-scandal, giving every military secret in the entire country to every other country for one cent while snogging a Chinese spy on the oval office desk on live TV.  Democrats say there isn't enough to prosecute.

#10.  Obama Administration apology tour ends up in England due to a weather-induced layover.  Accidentally habitually apologizes to the Queen.  Queen accepts apology with return of stolen property, namely the entire US.  US celebrates.

Looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish in Â’14!

1019 My prediction for 2014--

The Democrats and their scandals will present a golden opportunity for the Republicans to take Congress.

The Republicans, led by Boehner, McConnell and Rove, will turn this golden opportunity into a total blowout for the GOP, and the Democrats will retain the Senate, take back the house, and generally run everything.

Hillary! will sail to victory in 2016.  Again, thanks to Boehner, McConnell and Rove.

1026 Hey, this professor in England compiled a map of what the US would look like if all the states secession movements had been successful. Some of it is funny, like Chicagoland. Turns out there would have been 124 states instead of 57. http://tinyurl.com/lu7o6ee Posted by: lindafell I'd be OK w/ dat. It's surprising that IL is most split, 5 states, other than TX. But the country could go all Euro, I know central IL won't. BTW linda, what was that sidescooping attachment for the mixer? I need to remember and buy the wife one of those. She used the mixer to make baked Alaska tonight! Awesome. What was that old commercial, my wife, I think I'll keep her? Man, would they be hounded today for that, LOL.

So classic anime.  Urusei Yatsura.  This is the first episode.  Ataru Moroboshi is randomly selected to defend the Earth from Space Oni aliens.  He has to win a competition against Lum and the Earth is saved.

Posted by: RWC at December 31, 2013 09:26 PM (Q6HBD)

1172 Sorry about dropping off a bit there, was composing a comment for a site with a Linksys EA router for sale.



"I got this router's big brother, the EA4500, and there is a huge weirdism about that router that is completely undocumented and likely shared with this one.

For some quick intro -- web addresses (like www.woot.com) are translated by DNS's into IP4 addresses (like 123.111.222.1). Information travels over the internet by being chopped up into packets, which have IP4 addresses.

A router is a device that looks at a packet with an IP address on one network, and says "that's one of mine" -- then passes it into a different network with a different target IP address (likely one it assigned by being the DHCP server).

How this works in real life is your router wakes up and asks the internet: "where am I?" The internet responds, "you are 123.111.222.1" and the router happily says, "bring on the stuff for 123.111.222.1". Then a computer wakes up and asks the router: "where am I?" and the router responds, "you are 192.168.1.100".

So when your computer wants a webpage, it says, "please send it to 192.168.1.100" and the router changes this to "please send it to 100 at 123.111.222.1". The web server responds "here's some traffic for 100 at 123.111.222.1" and your router changes this to "here's some traffic for 192.168.1.100" on your local net. It sounds very complicated, but it goes on all the time and very quickly.

By tradition, basic routers actually do hand out IP addresses starting with 192.168.1.100, and the routers, themselves, are 192.168.1.1 on their own network. This allows you to connect legacy equipment -- stuff that checks dipswitches for "where am I?" instead of just asking -- by giving it addresses like 192.168.1.50 -- it'll get recognized, 'cause it's in 192.168.1.XXX, but other devices won't bump into it because it's under 100.

OK, so here's the weirdism -- if the router wakes up and goes, "where am I?" and the upstream router says, "you are at 192.168.1.XXX", then the Linksys router goes -- "ooh, scary, that's what I was going to say!" -- and when other computers on its network start asking where they are, it uses three COMPLETELY RANDOM numbers for its first three segments -- so the first in-network computer might well be 252.17.197.100 -- instead of the 192.168.1.100 that it would have been traditionally.

And that means that your legacy devices -- the 192.168.1.50 gizmo -- completely disappears to all the other computers in your network....'cause it ain't in 252.17.197.XXX land.

The only way to deal with this is through reset to factory defaults -- it cannot be configured through local or web config and survives normal reboots and resets. You're permanently exiled to 252.17.197.XXX.

Other than that, and a tendency to "hang-up" on hibernating computers and re-use their IP addresses, I really like the EA4500, but I would seriously hope that anyone buying an EA series router knows about this quirk in advance."



I blame the NSA.

I, myself, am really glad to put 2013 behind me. I personally didn't have much in the way of catastrophes, but it just was a horrible dispiriting mess throughout. With many of the same bunch of clowns in power -- and, you'll note, I did not say "governing" -- we're going to get more crap in 2014, but each and every day holds the possibility of "knock that shit off" -- and our recovery and success will begin when that happens.



Someone made a great observation with regard to "what is the GOP alternative to Obamacare?" -- if your house is on fire, do you ask the firemen "what is your alternative to this conflagration?" We can do repairs or rethinks once the fire is out and we can see how much was burned.



That said, I'm wary of what is to come in 2014 -- and frankly expect much more of the bad than the good -- but hope that we turn the corner on failed policies from the 30's, move away from our wretched socialist slum, and pursue again our vision of a shining city upon a hill.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=332QeTNmfh8

It's a real phenomenon -- I've been to concerts here, and there's an encore, and then the entire audience goes, "well, that's it, then" and leaves -- and you KNOW the band had another couple of encores in 'em. 'Cause tomorrow there's robots or chips or servers or something.

The ambiance is quite different. In the UK, the limiting factor is "house" -- most Brits live in shrunken digs that are positively claustrophobic. In the US, the limiting factor is "booze" or "socializing", because you typically have more room at home than you do in a bar.

I put my email here last night for shredded chi & left a comment or two to ask others to tell him it was in post 968 & then went to sleep because I'm sick. This morning I saw a lot of comments saying it was a big mistake & one of the COBs redacted it.

1323 Where are Andy & Gabe? Do they have day off? Posted by: Carol at January 01, 2014 07:44 AM

Have to look in the United Cobloggers and Parking Attendants' Local 217 Rulebook to see if they get today off, or just get time-and-a-half for posting.

Seeing a local teevee stations' "year in review" during last night's evening news was enough to close off any attempts at Holiday Cheer: the rapidly improving economy is having a great effect on housing prices (up! up! up!), John F'n Kerry gave us Peace With Iran!, and Mumbles Menino is being replaced by someone who is actually worse (but maybe, if we're reeeeeeal lucky, not as awful as Bill DeBlasio). We got the bestest, most wonderful health care system in the world, too, thanks to Choom Boy! Oh, and don't forget all that "Boston Strong" crap....

Morning Horde,

I guess the Cobs are still in the ER due to valu-rite poisoning. Anywho, May the new year bring us good tidings.

1325 I'm using my iPad & Weather Channel has two severe alerts, one for snow storm & other for single digit temps. Global warming?

1326 The engineer in me likes the idea of solar panels but even with subsidies they only make financial sense if you sell excess electricity back to the electric company and adjust your lifestyle around non-peak hours. Still it's probably worth having a few portable solar panels (say 150W worth) so you can recharge battery packs, phones, etc. in the event of a disaster. Actually, one of the gifts I gave my hubby this year was the Power Monkey Extreme, which has a solar power attachment to power it if need be. Seems to cover all bases, which was neat.

1331 Mr. Scribbler, Where do you live, sounds like it is in MA? I live six miles from Boston, in a small city just north of it.

1333 Sorry that you're in the midst of protests, ThunderB. Praying for safety for you and your family and the people of Cambodia.

I live about 30 miles NE of Bahstahn, Carol, on a sort-of-island at the end of Route 128.

Clarence Birdseye, of frozen vegetables fame, came from this area. He must have made his discovery on a morning much like this one....

1335 Send an e-mail to that e-mail address, ID'ing who you are. Posted by: Village IdiotÂ’s Apprentice at January 01, 2014 08:09 AM (GcYmn) Thank you, Village IdiotÂ’s Apprentice. I did send an email. Do I have to had a Yahoo email address or something? I do not have a Yahoo anything. If I do, itÂ’s from years ago and I donÂ’t remember what it is. Happy New Year.

1336 Carol, I think you need to sign up for a Yahoo email to get into the groups but it is painless.

1337 Carol, I think you need to sign up for a Yahoo email to get into the groups but it is painless. Posted by: Hrothgar at January 01, 2014 08:21 AM (o3MSL) Thank you. I must have signed up years ago, now IÂ’m waiting for the password recovery.

1338 "Carol, I think you need to sign up for a Yahoo email to get into the groups but it is painless."

There may be some truth to that.

My e-mail addy is yahoo based anyhow.
So I would have used it no matter what.
And if one was required, by default I would have had the correct account.

In other words...I may have done it the right way....by accident..

1339 Looks like someone forgot to mention that there is a new thread up.

1340 Finally! New Thread!

1341 Actually I knew Cobain when he was younger...he really was a genius, a lot of messed up people are, though. There is more awareness now in the schools on how to deal with disabilities related to geniusness but there still isn't normal funding available because it is still set up to help those whose disabilities keep them from understanding the work, rather than those who already can do it all but have various 'syndromes' that helps them to rationalize not doing it.

1342 Daft Punk on the far mediocrity end and Kurt Cobain on the far end of the genius end? Yeah, no. This person has questionable judgement.
