Overnight Open Thread (28 Feb 2015)
— CDR M

Why conservatives will miss Mr. Spock.

Spock was a very rational, intelligent character who often came to opposite conclusions to people around him (if you live in a liberal place or went to a liberal college, you can personally relate to this), but who used logic and common sense to figure things out. If you were to tell Spock there was global warming, he'd whip out his tricorder, take his own readings, and tell you you were wrong. If you described a society to Spock that invited strangers in and gave them unlimited welfare, Spock would clearly call such a society "illogical".

Top photo from Spock and the black cat. Dresses

Disney really is going all in with the Star Wars thing. Disney CEO Bob Iger's wife wore a Yoda dress to the Academy Awards (yes that is Kirsten Dunst in the picture). I wonder if the thermal exhaust port is shielded?

Interesting. Russia's military exercises are way bigger than NATO's.

Smokable Clothing

It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Hoodies that get you high.

The GOP

Powerline asks are Washington Republicans incompetent? Yes. Yes they are.

Red Sonja

Alright morons. Imagine you a big Hollywood exec and you are tasked to cast the lead role for the movie Red Sonja. Who do you cast as your warrior ginger? Does it have to be a real ginger?

Winter

Looks like old man winter isn't done yet. Models are starting to show all 49 states getting some snow this next week.

So the Pope says money is dung? Well he and his associates were and are more than happy to accept said dung from my poor parents and relatives every Sunday. I also noted large amounts of said dung must have been spent on the Vatican, his residence, when I visited there.

28 "Interesting. Russia's military exercises are way bigger than NATO's." Of course - it puts large amounts of troops right on the borders of the Baltic states Putin wants to gradually take over (which is why Estonia and Lithuania have introduced measures to bring back "temporary" conscription). Here's a good blog post by "Streetwise Professor" on teh Twitters - "Is NATO a threat to Russia? If only." http://tinyurl.com/nyef8g9 I was particularly surprised that Germany's readiness is so poor - one of their "elite" units had to use broomsticks painted black as props during a recent NATO exercise. Also goes to show that NATO is really the US.

29 For Red Sonja casting... how about Adrianne Palicki from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Make her a redhead and she'd be great in the role. Would just be a revision of the role she's doing in AoS and she did in GI Joe.

35 I laugh (not at the horde, but because of it) in that though I'm pro-recreational marijuana, gay marriage, and abortion (I don't hide behind the euphemism "choice" though I support a ban on partial-birth and late-term abortions unless the mother is going to die (and only in the latter, not the former)), I'm orders of magnitude more conservative than the GOP. Don't just put up a border fence, mine the G-D thing. Get rid of at least a 1/2 dozen cabinets, including Vet Affairs (WTF isn't this part of DoD), very pro-2nd, 9th, and 10th amendments, hard money, congressional term limits, und so weiter (and so on).

In my small number of people, the really concrete, detail oriented people saw it as white and gold. The artsy people especially those who work a lot with color saw it as blue and black, which was the real color. My one daughter saw it as one then the next day, the other. Which freaked her out.

89 palooka: Although I know you're a longstanding contrarian here - oh fuck it, so am I. You're right. "American Thinker" isn't my go-to place for thought, American or otherwise. This particular article tried too hard. The only Right-friendly message the article successfully argues for is that in "Return of the Archons". One out of ten. I'd not have gone for individual episodes, myself (especially not that 3rd-season rubbish). I'd have gone for the general support of the Naval virtues: deference to the Captain, but mindful of where the Captain's orders are not *obviously* destructive. And general principles of duty, honour, and protection of one's home.

100 I was particularly surprised that Germany's readiness is so poor - one of their "elite" units had to use broomsticks painted black as props during a recent NATO exercise. Also goes to show that NATO is really the US. Posted by: Thrawn at February 28, 2015 10:36 PM (d7XFS) IIRC, back when the French and Brits "led" the air attack against Libya that got rid of Khadaffhi, they weren't even able to get a squadron each there without the US doing all of the logistics. Currently, France has 1 aircraft carrier (that may or may not be able to go to sea at a given time) 9 frigates and 6 subs. Great Britain has 6 destroyers, 13 frigates, 4 ballistic subs, and 6 fleet subs. Plus 1 carrier that is now an amphibious assault ship, plus 3 other amp assualt ships. Along with Italy's carrier, those ships make up the bulk of the European NATO members' navies. So yes, the US IS NATO.

104 That "Why Conservatives Will Miss Spock" link completely misunderstood/misrepresented the point of "A Taste of Armegeddon." The computer wasn't just simulating disasters; it was fighting a war. Both sides were using computer simulations to determine casualties rather than conventional weapons, in order to preserve their physical history and culture. The point of the episode is that war HAS to be brutal, ugly, and destructive, because that's the only way it will ever end. If you sanitize it, no one will ever get tired and more people will die. As Robert E. Lee said, "It is well that war is so terrible, that we should grow too fond of it." The author of the piece took a really cool and profound episode and made a wooden, forced political point out of it. I wouldn't normally say anything, but that's probably my favorite episode, and it really rubs me the wrong way how they represented it.

111 I've got a 99.9999% black cat. Except, right on the top of her widdwe biddy haid, there's a white speck, about the 1/2 the size of a small grain of rice. Full grown, she's 7-1/2 lbs. Tiny, small cute cat! Her name is Bonnie, as in "Bonnie Wee Lass". She gives her 13 lb. littermate brother, living fits. She's like the "Chickenhawk" from the Foghorn Leghorn cartoons. They're both longhaired cats. It's not uncommon to find one with a mouth full of the other's fur, after a tussle. And yes, living with these two cats is like life in a Warner Bros. cartoon. I'm not exaggerating, they're a pair of characters. At least they sleep a lot; they're cats. Having said that, they sleep a lot on our laps. Rather immobilizing, at times. Good friends, good company. Gotta love 'em. Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

115 As for the Death Star (under-construction) dress - I give it 5/10. It's pretty. But it draws attention to itself; it is too obviously a marketing ploy. A *great* dress calls attention to the woman who wears it. The dress posted here draws my eye to this woman's kneecaps (what's the point?). Slightly tangential to the topic, 3D printed dresses are coming. By which I mean, are here already.

124 Years ago, had a feral mom cat show up, birth a litter of five, and die almost before they were weaned. Three of the cats were white triplets. All white, except, one had a small gray steak on the top of her head on the left, another same but on the right. Third had no stripe. After the all white cat and one of the others had died, the remaining cat lost her gray stripe - no longer needed to differentiate them. They sure were cute as kittens. Long ago now. All gone.

182 Does anyone else find it interesting that bacon is jihadibane? If you were ever into moral equivalence or not sure if daesh was good or evil I would think their fear and revulsion of and for bacon would settle the matter for you.

205 Carol, one of my best friends on the planet lives in Marble Falls, so my making the (4 hr.) drive ain't no tang. Hell, I'll probably get him to help with the Marble Falls part of the tour, as he spent years and years looking for the property he ended up buying. I'd also steer you to contact SMFH to see about Copperas Cove. It's on the backside of Ft. Hood, which is her stomping grounds. She'll know the territory there, whereas I only know it from being highly impressed with it's beauty and ambience, while passin' thru a few times. Just keep in mind, in this part of Texas, those drives are the norm. January of '14, I drove from here to Allen, TX, well North of Dallas, to attend an event where Ted Cruz was the keynote speaker, introduced by Bill Whittle. I'd had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Whittle some years before, at the DuToit's, where he was overnighting during a cross-country flight. That was 265 miles, each way, and I was happy to do it. If you move to Texas, you'll have to recalibrate your drive-o-meter. It's a solid 38 miles from Galveston to the outer loop around Houston, Beltway 8. A short day for me is 80 miles on the odometer. It's usually twice that, sometimes triple, depending on where the customers are. Ain't nothing to drive an hour, just to meet a friend for a drink and cigars. You'll get used to the distance and time behind the wheel. At least you see a lot of nice scenery through the windshield! Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

213 DC, RWC, yankee -- needless to say, alcohol consumption is a test too. Note that in most African "Muslim" countries, beer is the beverage of choice due to the water being undrinkable. And I have worked with a "Jordanian" (i.e., Palestinian) Muslim who drinks like a fish, and know Pakistanis who do too. When the flight fom Riyadh to London leaves Saudi airspace, the women all go to the bathroom and change out of their ninja outfits and the booze starts flowing.

I'm guessing it's like everything else - you have various degrees of compliance. I never really was around any Mormons growing up and was very surprised the first time I saw them getting drunk. Muslims are probably the same way, especially when they're away from the flagpole.

A while ago I saw a few minutes of her noon show. as they would go to or return from commercial the girls on the couch were all bouncing and bopping to the music, save for tantaros. she has clearly made a decision not to do so for some reason related to taking herself far too seriously. someone needs to have a conversation with her, I even volunteer. listen, tantaros, that's your name right? You wear short tight dresses with stripper heels and sit in the leg chair in every show you are in. you are playing sex to the hilt to get and keep your job. start bouncing your fucking foot to the music and stop acting like you are some serious thinker who is above selling anything related to sex to get you stupid job.

I was pissing about it over dinner one evening and everyone said "why didn't you just call 1800mattress?" When I got home around midnight I called 1800mattress and answered a few questions and gave my card info. within an hour, maybe only a half hour I had a couple of guys ringing my buzzer. I buzzed them in, they stormed up two flights of stairs with a mattress and started banging on my door. I am pretty sure if I not opened it when I did they would have kicked it in and started setting everything up. Anyway, I opened the door, the shoved the mattress into my room ran downstairs and grabbed the frame and box spring and came back up. Everything was assembled and cleaned up less than ten minutes later. Apparently they have trucks preloaded with several beds driving around 24/7 with beds ready to go. Of course getting someone to bring you a new cable box requires a weeks notice sito set up an appointment with a 6 hour window.

I just found out that he watched this one: http://youtu.be/XI3r8_i2CLU it's an anime video of two my little ponys fighting, then making up. The blood is cartoonish, so I guess I'm (just) OK with that aspect of it. Thing is, he commented on it. As me, since it's my account he's watching on (we're going to have a talk about that). I found out when I got an email that someone had replied to my comment. What was the comment that my ten year old son made to the video? "Still a better love story than Twilight"

250 245 One of the really funny/sad things about the times we live in is how much authority we give to actors and people on teevee who talk about the news. Tantaros is kind of cute but who the hell is she and why am I supposed to care what she thinks? I read smarter stuff here.
Posted by: JackStraw at March 01, 2015 12:17 AM (g1DWB)




I am not sure who she is but she is always dropping her experience on the Hill. I thought she worked for carville's wife. I could google her but who cares.

Agreed about the conversation here, it is much better, more interesting and informative, than nearly anything on television.

252 248 I'm bemused.

Little has started making home movies and posting them to Youtube. Mostly stuff about video games, made with the iPad. He posts them on my account and I review each one first. he's got three RL friends who follow my account and comment. I watch what's going on, even if the blather of 10 year olds isn't very interesting.

Well, he also watches videos. I just found out that he watched this one: http://youtu.be/XI3r8_i2CLU it's an anime video of two my little ponys fighting, then making up. The blood is cartoonish, so I guess I'm (just) OK with that aspect of it.

Thing is, he commented on it. As me, since it's my account he's watching on (we're going to have a talk about that). I found out when I got an email that someone had replied to my comment.

What was the comment that my ten year old son made to the video?

261 The real question is not what we have now, but what we have the capacity to build on short notice while in a full-out WWII-type of full out war. Posted by: The Infrastructural Hat at March 01, 2015 12:27 AM (0Ew3K) Considering that we were building about 5 carriers a year during WW2 and it takes 7 years to build one now, a WW2 type of war will leave everybody without ships in about 6 months. Fuck, since 1991 they have been planning on building I-73 from Charleston, SC to Sault St Marie, MI. Most of the route would be along existing 4 lane highways that would be brought up to interstate level, and in almost 25 years, 82 miles have been upgraded. And the route has been changed to be from Charleston, SC to Roanoke, VA. That should tell you how we would be able to get a bunch of ships built quickly these days.

There have been a number of "great ideas" that get floated through several conversations on the blog -- t-shirts, a mega-Vegas-MoMe, a comment-system that allows ampersands, putting up flyers in NYC with a picture of Wicket and text saying: "Have you seen this Ewok? Report possible sightings at ace.mu.nu".... -- that never seem to amount to anything.



OTOH, I think of this place as a great place to hang out, swap jokes and stories, inhabited by some of the warmest and funnest people in the intertubez.



It just hit me weird that it might be taken as a news source. That, and I'm a little grumpy that the weather played cat-and-mouse with raining all day, so I was highly unproductive. Unfortunately, it's not uncommon for me to free-associate six or eight stages away from the original stimulus before I hit Post.

Just a bit north on 101 - now and for several years closed - is the former Timbers restaurant (east side of 101) - believe the doors are made of wood from the oil pier at Ellwood that took the rounds from the I-boat in 1942.

 

Old friend's mother grew up on a ranch nearby, just north (beautiful ranch in one of the valleys running perpendicular to the coast, near Reagan's ranch).  She said sheriffs came around day of the attack to make sure everyone had shotguns and ammo, and to tell them to black out their windows.  They set up a few checkpoints with local men just off the highway.

 

Whole thing sparked a panic throughout SoCal and along the west coast.  Just a few years back the last remnant of the Navy anti-sub blimp station near the Del Mar racetrack in San Diego was removed as part of a lagoon restoration project.

I went to school at the University of Casual Sun-Bathing, and really love the area....and even fought my way back to working there after graduation....but, sadly, had to recognize that I was never going to be able to afford to live there (the same realization I've come to with regard to the entire state).



One of my favorite bits of local history has to do with a street downtown called "Canon Perdido".



To start with, it helps to know that the Spaniards' original development plan for Alta California (the current US state) was to establish four forts (Presidios) in the natural port cities of San Diego, Santa Barbara, Monterey, and San Francisco. Then, along a royal road (El Camino Real) that ran from San Diego to Sonoma, they established 21 Missions to support the colony and convert the locals to Catholicism. They were spaced roughly a day's travel apart.



So, Santa Barbara was a big deal at the time -- having both a Mission and a Presidio, it was substantially more important that Los Angeles.



And in being such a big deal, great things occurred there -- like http://tinyurl.com/lcnhh8k

I "endured" some time at UC State Beach myself.  Probably one of the few colleges where pranks included filling an entire dorm common bathroom with kelp (freshly picked up at the beach 100 yards away).

 

SB itself is sort of unrecognizable.  The whole State Street redevelopment was well done, but ..... meh.  Just another plush CA entertainment/tourist street now.   And .... a rush hour on 101 now.  Was shocked - didn't really believe it - when the woman at a winery up in Paso told us we'd better get past SB before 1PM on a Sunday (going south).  She was right. 

 

Nice thing about SB is that it acts as a buffer and barrier.  Few from the LA-plex seem to venture just another 90 minutes north, where central coast remains as beautiful and quiet as when I was a kid.  With great wine and increasingly very good eating.

318 Los Angeles was originally "El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río de Porciúncula", or "The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels of the River of the tiny bit".



The LA river was named that by the Portolà expedition because it was the name of a special annual feast day for the Franciscans, which the Portolà party had celebrated the previous day. The original Porzioncula church -- where the Franciscan movement started -- is near Assisi and is so named because it is on such a tiny piece of ground. Porzion-cula would approximately be "portion-tiny".

Santa Barbara is northwest of LA and on the coast. With the sea to the south and mountains to the north, it has been described as the American Riviera.



It's pretty pricey.....but the real money is one town over, in Montecito. Take a gander through http://tinyurl.com/lsuvo3d -- and, note well, California property tax is about 1% of the last sales price....so the annual tax bill for every $1,000,000 is just a smidge over $10,000

The strangest Jennifer Love Hewitt early appearance is cable staple 'The Trojan War.' This is a type of movie Hollywood cranks out every five years or so, in which a teenage boy is intensely pursuing a blonde while failing to notice the dark haired girl next store has grown up to be drop dead gorgeous. An 80s example of this was 'My Secret Admirer' which put the girl next door Lori Loughlin in the position of playing Cyrano to C. Thomas Howell in his pursuit of Kelly Preston.

Will Friedle is killing himself to procure condoms and make a study date with Marley Shelton while oblivious to the fact that his childhood pal has grown up to be Jennifer Love Hewitt. The viewer watches in stunned amazement and wants to shout at him, "Dude, she's Jennifer Love Hewitt and she wants you!"

What would it be like living in a country where urban areas were no go zones for white christians, or jews. Where urban areas like Ferguson were controlled completely by 'protestors' who would invade and take over government buildings in neighboring communities. Where the Rules of Engagement prevented Law Enforcement from responding to any action by the protesters, where LEO had to stand and watch. Where LEO could not use physical restraint or rubber bullets or tear gas. Where LEO had to retreat rather than confront because confrontation was provocative, yet protesters could 'challenge' Law Enforcement and LEO had to retreat or be charged by Federal DOJ agents with civil rights violations. Where Islamists had their own sovereign enclave where US Law did not apply, and sent out raiding parties that would retreat to the sanctuary of those sovereign territories. Where Obama was still President, and the country was divided into urban areas openly rejecting US Law, and rural areas subject to oppressive Federal Regulations, where rural communities had to worry about raiders and worry about Federal DOJ who would charge rural LEO with violations of Federal Law should they attempt to defend those communities from urban raiding partings.

331 I can't get over the irony of a fast talking video character telling us about authors who invented new words. Wouldn't it make more sense to use the written word? Oh, right, those almost subliminal subtitles that the functionally illiterate would never be able to read before the text disappeared; subliminal text with a poorly selected colored font that can't be differentiated from the complex background of books while the view struggles to understand the fast talking person in the vid. Well, alrighty then. Could the fast talking video character then at least use 'diction' and 'enunciation' so the new words could be heard? Maybe rhyme would be better. It would help the viewer remember the new words, except white people can't rap.

But Ferguson is a good example. We don't want a Federal DOJ threatening LEO with civil rights violation for putting down riots. And we don't want protesters thinking they have a right to riot. And I really don't want squads of armed night riders burning me out of house and home after looting and raping.

371 2 + 2 = 4 in most numbering systems. However 8 + 8 equals 20, unless it equals 10. You can google it, and the results will be accurate. You can trust google. It's science!

374 Well, from the Steamroller Toccata, let's go old skul -- http://tinyurl.com/amchc2g .





A "toccata", by the way, is a piece to show off "touch" -- to show that you had full control and mastery of the various means of eliciting sound from your instrument, here a pipe organ. German organs (like those Bach was most familiar with) mechanically linked their pipes -- so if you were playing three sets of pipes on one keyboard against one set of pipes on another, you likely had to press three times as hard on the first (plus additional friction in the linkages). To play a "dancing" melody between the two was partially an athletic accomplishment and partially a balancing of rhythm and effort.

"On that note, Mastadon will be in Vegas again in May, with Clutch opening. You kinda have to be there with the quality sound system to appreciate the quality of the interplay of the artists.

396 VIA, Have a good day. We're supposed to wake up tomorrow with 6 more inches of snow. If so, that should put us on record for snowiest winter. It was 1994-1994 with 107 + inches. Most of snow fell from January 23-February 16. It's a mess here & my home phone isn't working because I have everything from Comcast but stopped them from coming here because cable box is buried & they expected us to shovel it. I tried to tell man in Tucson to imagine 7.5 feet of snow that's been shoveled out of driveway, sidewalk, roof of one porch & no one in their right mind would shovel snow that's out of driving area. if I'm in my living room I can see call coming on. It's mostly 854 area codes that are telemarketing cos.

397 Morning all. So, Carol, what is it like living on an Ice Planet? Here in southern Indiana, most of our stuff is melted (still have a could inches of a snow/ice mix on the ground though. According to the weather channel we are supposed to get snow and Ice this morning, followed by rain. The weather app on my phone says no snow/ice, just rain. Right now I am hoping the phone is right.

400 Aetius451AD, To be frank, it sucks. I have over 200 roses that are completely covered with 8-12 feet of snow. Snow is good to keep them insulated but we had single digit temps in January before snow started. Jerk across the street has had car parked in front of my house at edge of our driveway. His number is unlisted & I looked for it but don't have it. He's got a foot he can move back now. I can't get out of my driveway because of him& snow mountains, unless I want to dent my car.
