Overnight Open Thread (28 Nov 2014)
— CDR M

Howdy morons. I'm back from my little vacation so you're stuck with me again. Hope y'all had a good Thanksgiving.

So you guys tired of turkey sandwiches yet? Perhaps you might want to try one of these 11 insane Thanksgiving-inspired sandwiches, tacos and more then. Oil Price Effects

Interesting to note the geopolitical impact of cheap oil.

The big losers from falling oil prices include several countries that are not friends of the US and its allies, such as Venezuela, Iran, and Russia. These countries are heavily dependent on their oil revenue to support their governments’ spending – especially massive transfer programs. Even at $75 or $80 a barrel, these governments will have a difficult time financing the populist programs that they need to maintain public support.

Star Wars

So the new Star Wars teaser trailer debuted today (Ranking the teaser trailers for all seven Star Wars movies). Not too shabby but then again, it is just a teaser. At least there wasn't an overabundance of lens flares or Jar-Jar Binks.

Here's a little video of Batman vs Darth Vader.

A-10's

A-10's return to Iraq. Just a dozen of them but without proper targeting and intelligence, it'll be mostly for show.

Vodka Turkey

The vodka-infused turkey sounds about right for the horde. Might have to try this for Christmas.

Frederick Wilson II

Frederick Wilson is smarter than every Ferguson protester, every celebrity, and every politician that has been outraged by the verdict.

While referring to a separate incident from Brown's, he refers to another shooting in which a black man charged two cops and was shot as a result.

"Why would you think it's a good idea to run up on two cops when they tell you to stop [and] put down whatever you got? I'm gonna keep coming at them, then they gonna shoot me. Now as black people, we supposed to be mad and Ohmygod, Ohmygod, we need to go out there and march! No we don't. No we don't. No we don't. Stop doin' crime."

1 Plethora of Polygender Pronouns There are plenty of examples of many, many "genders" being available to identify as, and plenty of pronouns that go beyond masculine, feminine, and even neuter. There are people who not only believe that, but also believe that they can be more than one gender at a time. More: http://politicalhat.com/?p=7239

19 So I'm home from FL, a good time was had and on the way back I picked up a holster for Grand-dads High Standard. I've been asked to hold off doing a review or posting pics until the matching belt can be made, but suffice it to say I like it well enough that I'm going to order a match for the Sig P220.


I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.

121 They gave Vader too much credit. Batman has no midichlorians in his system ... how does the "force" work on something live that is not a "force" conductor? The extended lightsaber duel ... this should have been a couple of swings, the Batman IMMEDIATELY knocks out Vader's life-support circuitry. Then after knocking out Vader's life support circuitry, and pounding him with the energy gloves ... how does this not stop Vader for at least 5 minutes? Further, Batman does not use another 2 or 3 bat-weapons to immobilize Vader for at least half an hour ... what? Finally, the Bat-spacemobile-save at the end ... seriously, the 'mobile has no shields, no follow-up shot is fired, and Batman is still inside?

You had almost a 60% chance of being born in India, China, Africa or the Middle East. You had a 5% chance of being born in America. Even when you fold in Europe and the British Commonwealth, that's just a 16% chance of being born somewhere prosperous, free and civilized.

That's like playing Russian Roulette in reverse. When we were conceived, a revolver with five loaded chambers was put to our heads, and the hammer dropped on the lone empty chamber.

THEN I really started to sympathize with their problems. Sympathy oozing from every pore because, Hey, they're burning and looting so obviously this is super serial and I should feel awful about the fact that I am a white person. Now, after reading about protesters in Seattle terrorizing some children who just wanted to sing Christmas songs for the tree lighting ceremony, my goodness! I have even MORE sympathy for these poor souls who only want justice. Because burning, looting, and terrorizing children who never heard of the sainted criminal thug Mike Brown is just sooo damned inspiring. Yup, I now support these protesters completely.

196 ... if we could invent something to do with them other than encase them in glass and stick them in storage. One possibility is to "burn" this "waste" in yet another reactor (perhaps a slightly different design). The waste is radioactive, and gets hot when enough of it is brought together (just like in current reactors), so the heat could be used to boil water to make steam to turn turbines ... just like in current reactors.

203 Catch-22: Heller was on a serious interview show once (Frost or Cavett), and was asked about the more remarkable people he'd met. He said without a doubt it was the officers of the Air Corps. Interviewer, taken aback, said b-b-but your book was all about how crazy that life was, no? And Heller dead-panned, "You do understand what the term 'fiction' means, don't you?"

Yucca Mtn: a real high percentage of "nuclear waste" is really mildly-exposed material like used handlers' suits, that could be more safely disposed by burning except for A Certain Agency. And used fuel rods can be re-charged, so to speak, in a kind of reactor whose name we aren't allowed to speak anymore. The whole problem has not been re-thought, in this country at least, since the 70's. We're still diddling ourselves into a paroxysm of fear with China Syndrome BS. Feels good.

212 196. Good thought, but not really feasible. The thing that makes a used up nuclear fuel-rod "spent", is that the heat-producing nuclear decay also is changing the isotope from one form to another..... .... and that other form is usually unstable in all kinds of nasty ways that will kill you, and umpteen thousands of your closest friends. No, not a mushroom cloud fireball....but in ways that control rods and cooling systems just don't agree with. A "breeder reactor" produces a useable by-product, but the anti nukes really hate that one, big time. (just Bing-search "breeder reactor", and you'll see.) Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

I'm being absolutely serious. One of the trivia questions at the party was, 'What's a merkin?' And all I could think of was the thread a few weeks ago that dissolved into a very explicit description of merkins. So, which one of you thought I would be a good idea to ask that question?!

Wouldn't it be weird to discover that I knew one of the Morons in meatspace, and neither of us knew it?

261 The best Bond movies have been emotionally anchored, which runs contrary to the concept and the character. On Her Majesty's Secret Service and Casino Royale deliver a horrible gut-punch on scale with Empire Strikes Back. These are my favorite movies for whatever reason. From Russia With Love and Skyfall have sweet-and-sour nostalgic themes and are very good.

262 You could provide a rhythm accompaniment to "Little Drummer Boy" by bonking protesters on the head with night sticks. Instead of the terribly twee pa-rum-pa-pa-pum, you could provide a "ba-donk-a conk-conk". Would make for a fine rendition. Protestors make me sick Ba donk a conk conk I have some ass to kick Ba donk a conk conk

393 "50 bucks says that the movie is going to start on Tatooine. What the hell is it with that planet? It must be the center of SW's universe. " Star Wars and Empire imply a fictional landscape that expands faster than it is filled. Alec Guiness mentioning the Clone wars was more of a tease than a promise. It's the reason that the guy that made Samurai Jack (each show had as much concept work as any sci-fi pilot) did so well with the material. Star Trek Into Darkness took all the idioms of that show and turned them up to 11. The die-hard fans might enjoy Kirk being extra Kirky and Spock being extra Spocky, but a stranger to the series might know better.

399 A commenter on another blog made a sharp observation: there probably are some cases of police abuse of a genuinely innocent black person out there, given that the militarization of police in recent years is a real problem. So why did the media zero in on the Brown case? And before that on St. Trayvon? It's obvious to most people with 2 working brain cells that these two guys were thugs and there really wasn't much of a case there. This guy's hypothesis is that the media focused on these cases precisely because they knew damn well Zimmerman and Wilson acted in self defense and things would not go well for the pro-Martin and pro-Brown crowd. That's what they want. If Zimmerman and Wilson were as obviously guilty and racist as the black racists and left wing loons claim they are and were tried and convicted, well, that would prove America has changed since the 1950's and blacks can obtain justice. That's the last thing the media wants. The Dems need 95% of the black vote. Even a loss of 10% would change the face of national elections. So the Dems have to keep the blacks on the plantation for at least the next few election cycles. After that the Hispanic vote will make up for it and they can kick the blacks to the curb. But until then, they've got to keep them riled up and angry and convinced that white AmeriKKKa is out to get them. And the media is the PR arm of the D party and so devotes itself to exploiting cases like this. The media knows damn well Wilson acted in self defense. They're grubering their stupid base.

Maybe. Possibly for ITAS, you can worm your (undeserved) way onto that show... it's not all Laurence Olivier. But Pioneers of TV is a documentary that looks back to the 50's for truly groundbreaking shows and performers. More recent stuff, post 70's has to bring something special to the table to get included, there's not that many. On this episode (comedy) the line up included... Johnathon Winters, Robin Williams, Dick Van Dyke, Cloris Leachman, Jimmie Walker, Jerry Seinfeld and Michael Richards (recent show) and ... Tina fucking Fey?

470 Our next door neighbors had 10 boys and 2 girls. The girls were around my age and I hung out with them. Walking into that house was like walking into a war zone. I think the ER staff must have known them all by name because it seemed like at least one of the boys had a cast on his arm or leg or hang or had stitches at any given time. It was a 4 bedroom house. The parents and the girls had 2 of the bedrooms and the boys were in bunk beds in the other rooms. (Two bathrooms - which would be much more of a problem with 10 girls and 2 boys.) I remember one of the boys said when he moved out into an apartment of his own, he luxuriated in the privacy and quiet for a few days -and then he started freaking out. It was too quiet. He said he actually missed his brothers yelling and fighting.

And while we're on the subject, why is it that so many normally reasonable people  cut football players so much slack?  George Carlin was right about football vs. baseball. If a baseball player does something wrong, it's " Ban him for life! Expunge his records! Make him give back the money he earned! He's supposed to be a role model!What do I tell my kid?" If it's a football player it's, "The bitch deserved it! It's okay because it's part of his culture! How can the poor guy make a living? Get him out there on the field!! I have money on the game!

My biggest problem is I really don't like hard liquor so it has to be really good for me to appreciate it. Which is probably why I'm still not all that fond of scotch.

The quality of a pepper grinder is based on how predictable and uniform the results are. If you grind pepper into a bowl, you'll see some particles as small as dust and some good-sized chunks (particularly when grinding a Peppercorn Medley, because all the peppers are different sized going in).



I should also note that the grinders I use most often are not my best ones.

When you get to the part where you refill it, be careful not to get the Mexican oregano -- which, if labeled in Spanish, will say "entero". If you notice that looks an awful lot like "entire", that is correct -- Mexican oregano has bits of stems and flowers in it. You want "oregano leaf" -- otherwise you'll think your 'za just got back from a hike when you eat it.

I'll admit that if they want me to go through the whole rigamorole of answering the same dumb questions a THIRD time, I'm going to have a hard time gritting my teeth and doing it. They already know my qualifications. Either they like me or they don't. I'm hoping they'll at least have the common sense and decency to keep it short and ask me for new information, or let me know why they do and/or don't like me for the job. Of course the job is at a local community college, so it could also be just another part of their "drive whitey crazy" PC program. ;-)

Actually, my oven is at oven-height, and my microwave is crammed under the countertop like ovens are normally crammed under cooktops in ranges.

That might be why you haven't acquired the taste. I don't think anyone starts out listening to Rush because of Geddy's voice....but after you put up with it a while, you can tolerate it better.

656 Agreed. It took me a long time to like Robert Plant/Led Zepplin. Nearly everyone of my friends in HS loved Zep. I had to smoke a lot of dope before succumbing.

What's funny is that I don't mind Plant in the least, and his voice bears some similarity to Lee's.

659 Arbalest, good points. It was explained to me, the department is growing and simply needs additional people. But, I *would* very much like to write to HR, although my hunch is that they'll clam up. Lord knows how paranoid and averse to sharing this kind of information they are, because they don't want to give folks like me any excuse to sue. Hate to sound paranoid but I *do* believe that old employers may also very well be badmouthing me, and am giving serious thought to hiring a screening service that will call them for me and find out what information they're giving out. Who knows, it might be quite the eye-opener.

I wonder if they're interviewing you just to fill some sort of internal quota? In other words, they have no intention of hiring you, they're just going through the motions just to check off a box on a report they have to file with HR.

I've known guys who've flown to another state at their expense for an interview only to be jerked around like this. It's absolutely maddening.

I've hired a whole bunch of people over the years, mainly in the field of accounting, and there is actually a real dynamic that can come into play. You start out with one conception of the job and gradually come around to another. It's like one place I was working where we kept hiring receptionists -- we started out with "attractive, friendly, outgoing, happy"....and kept ending up with "spends all her time chatting with the vendors -- who are flirting with her in our entry hall instead of making the goddamned parts we need to keep the place running" and "comes in late every other day looking rumpled after clubbing" and "ok, which engineer is she dating now?"



And somehow that "attractive, friendly, outgoing, happy" turns into "can reliably get their ugly-ass in to unlock the doors at 8 am". Even though it's the same job.

Hmmmm. Do you like the Moore years? Which ones have you seen (all eras)? I'm a Bond fan, but there aren't that many I'd actually call classics, as in near perfect blend of Bond formula coupled with super filmmaking. However, they're all pretty good fun if you just want some yucks, some action and whatnot. If there's one thing I give the "new reboot" Bond movies and Daniel Craig credit for... it's making me reevaluate the Moore years. I know think "jeez, you know what? those weren't so bad after all."

In Dr. No, the first Bond film, early on (when Bond just arrives in Jamaica), he has a brief fight with a would-be assassin. When Bond starts to interrogate him, he kills himself with a cyanide cigarette.

Zassenhaus makes four different sizes. There are also 9.4" and 11.8" models. They all have the same grinding mechanism; the only difference is the storage capacity for peppercorns. The smallest size is perfectly adequate for home use. If you own a restaurant, you'll want one of the larger ones.

Hiring/Firing is an intensely fucked-up process from both sides.....and, as government gets increasingly involved, it's getting worse. The fiancee actually was a manager of tech support at Resumix, and the cat-and-mouse games of "buzzword bingo" are just insane. I don't know of any hiring manager who isn't pissed-off at HR for filtering all the qualified people out of resumes submitted, while pushing dubious candidates who utterly collapse during interviews. And then, if you do hire someone they give you -- after all, you've got a crying need if you put yourself through the process at all -- any employee problem that ever arises afterwards is entirely your fault. It's like they want you to filter out the crazies and let them filter out the qualifications, when it really should be the other way around.

Yeah, I know that gadgets are part of the Bond schtick, but there were films were that aspect became a plot crutch, or so gratuitous that I got the feeling that the writers/production folks were pandering to the audience.

I part, that's why I appreciated the recent Craig films... they were examples of the franchise returning to its roots.

703 The recent Bonds do have humor; it's just a bit more subtle. And again, too much spoils the broth. The only thing that's become annoying is the BBC-style Multi-Culti Disease; forcing ethnic characters into the mythos is so transparently obvious it's just annoying. They could have just inserted the most obvious twist; instead of Bond going 'rogue' in Der Schweitzer Alpen, just have him wandering around in Bombay - err, excuse me, Mumbai. No pandering, no affectation. Just a straight, hard as nails spy story with realistic cross-cultural awkwardness and eventual heroism. They could have done a half dozen episodes of Bond in former colonies to satisfy all that zealous multi-culti fantasy shit. ABER NEIN! I'm still half-contemplating a pseudo-Bond novel in India just out of spite.

Each of the Moore flicks have something to offer, but none are what I'd call classic (but, what makes a "classic" Bond flick is highly subjective). "Live and Let Die" is probably Moore's best Bond portrayal, it's his first and he he kind of makes it work. Dumb flick, though, but it has it's moments. "For Your Eyes Only" is arguably his best one, overall. "A View to a Kill" is woeful, but dammit, it has Christopher Walken and Grace Jones chewing scenery as baddies, so there's that. "Moonraker" is excrement. 'Nuff said."Octopussy" is pretty trite, also.

 

I rate "Goldeneye" highly. An actual classic. The last great Bond flick. Maybe even the last good one. The Daniel Craig Bond flicks are not Bond. They're charmless actioners that just go through the motions and are not even very well made. "Casion Royale" is decent enough, if you ignore Craig as Bond. "Skyfall"... oh my God. Worst. Bond. Ever.

710 Holy crap. I saw Bob Dylan last weekend, and the best seats were $139. That's by far the most I've ever paid for a ticket. It was worth every penny, BTW.

711 693 In Dr. No, the first Bond film, early on (when Bond just arrives in Jamaica), he has a brief fight with a would-be assassin. When Bond starts to interrogate him, he kills himself with a cyanide cigarette. Bond then puts him in Bond's car, drives to Government House, gets out, and hands off the keys to security saying, "Sergeant, make sure he doesn't get away."

yeah, the ingredients were all there, right from the start. The difference between the Conery years and the Moore years was the balance... or something. Most of the Moore ones lacked... gravitas. Well, whatever gravitas you can put into a Bond flick, anyway.

The Connery films were edgy and disturbing. In Goldfinger, everyone at Fort Knox could actually be dead. Bond was occasionally brutal -- in Dr. No, there's this little exchange:


[Professor Dent tries to kill Bond, but his gun is out of bullets]

James Bond: That's a Smith & Wesson, and you've had your six.

Posted by: hadoop at November 29, 2014 02:27 AM (2X7pN) yeah that shit is obscene. Last time I saw them it was $100. Rush used to be my only break from metal, but I haven't liked the last 20 years of albums to pay $250 to see them. On the other hand, I'll think nothing of blowing 2K on a metal cruise and see a fuck ton of bands.

Yeah, that's a good description. They had an edge and were disturbing. But, not all the Connery flicks were so inclined (overall). After "Goldfinger", they got a bit... dunno, lighter? Even Goldfinger was a big departure from No and FRWL. However they still carried weight. I've come to really dig "You only Live Twice" over the years and I think it has displaced FRWL as the best Connery Bond film. Dunno why... it just works better and has a grand quality that the earlier ones lacked. Yes, it's often silly, but dammit, it's Bond, James Bond.

Just a taste: "This "Bond film" was not part of the franchise produced by MGM and Danjaq. Kevin McClory, who was producer and co-writer of Thunderball (1965), won a legal battle against Ian Fleming to make his own Bond movie. The settlement stipulated that it had to effectively be a remake of Thunderball."

It's a bit unusual for cinema to get two bites of the apple....with the same lead.

Oddly, it was released in the same year as Octopussy, IIRC. It was billed as a "battle of the Bonds" between Roger Moore and Sean Connery, but could well have been a battle of the Ian Fleming version of Bond (based on Thunderball, a project he had something to do with) and the Hollywood version of Bond (where Octopussy is a short story that has nothing to do with the film other than its title).

There isn't much contest between Octopussy and NSNA. The Connery one wins. I've never actually watched Thunderball and NSNA back to back. I should.

Sean Connery's selection as James Bond owed a lot to Dana Broccoli, wife of Cubby Broccoli, who is reputed to have been instrumental in persuading Cubby that Sean Connery was the right man. James Bond's creator, Ian Fleming, originally doubted Connery's casting, saying, "He's not what I envisioned of James Bond looks" and "I'm looking for Commander Bond and not an overgrown stunt-man," adding that Connery (muscular, 6' 2", and a Scot) was unrefined. Fleming's girlfriend told him Connery had the requisite sexual charisma. Fleming changed his mind after the successful Dr. No premiere; he was so impressed, he created a half-Scottish, half-Swiss heritage for the literary James Bond in the later novels. -- http://tinyurl.com/ng58486

Instead of driving a car that turns into a toaster or some shit he'll just jump into a tank and fuck the town up, not to mention fuck up a room with an AK-47 instead of that pos PPK pocket pop gun. Golden eye was great, you would think you would get powder burns if you sat too close to the screen.

761 751 -- otho -- Niven???

I kinda doubt it. Niven played many roles, but 'manly with his fists' was never high on the list.

Many of his characters were 'thoughtful', and 'clever'; hell, Robert Shaw would have been a better fit... or a younger version of Cary Grant.

If not Connery, then I haven't a clue... my knowledge of English actors from that time period is somewhat lacking.

Frankly, I can't imagine anybody else stepping into the role...

The extended lightsaber duel ... this should have been a couple of swings, the Batman IMMEDIATELY knocks out Vader's life-support circuitry. Then after knocking out Vader's life support circuitry, and pounding him with the energy gloves ... how does this not stop Vader for at least 5 minutes? Further, Batman does not use another 2 or 3 bat-weapons to immobilize Vader for at least half an hour ... what? Finally, the Bat-spacemobile-save at the end ... seriously, the 'mobile has no shields, no follow-up shot is fired, and Batman is still inside? " ***** deus ex forcina trumps deus ex machina

Goldeneye was fucking awesome. Saw it on the big screen and it kicked ass totally. Wasn't that impressed since seeing OHMSS on the big screen. Goldeneye took you by the throat from the first second and didn't let go. I was shocked, as an avid 60's Bond fan... it was that good.

Sean Connery is James Bond.  Period.

 

Though I do like Daniel Craig's Bond in his first movie-- more darker, sinister as an operative should be.  The rest of his Bond films however....

Beats me why it would be considered bad. It's a great flick and very well put together. It's got a bit of everything in it and it's told really well. Lazenby was adequate as Bond. Nothing special, but he certainly is convincing in the physical scenes. A middle tier Bond. It's the one I always go back to as the best overall film. If Connery was in it how could anyone rail against it? Lazenby did Ok.  I thought Savalas made a great Blofeld. Sinister and intimidating.

Yeah he had a certain... something. If the films had continued in the 60's tradition, he could have really served as a good replacement for Connery. Poor bastard had to follow Connery. But with the direction it took in the 70's it was probably just as well he did just the one. I'm not sure he could have suited the more comedic Bond flicks of the 70's. Connery almost struggled in Diamonds.
