Quote of the Day I

But the robots get better every year, while the workers stay the same. Or, perhaps, get worse.

-- Instapundit on minimum wage increase demands versus robotic automation

Quote of the Day II

Ashe Schow asks: "With all the attention being paid to college-aged social justice warriors and microagressions, one has to ask: What happens when all these delicate snowflakes enter the workforce?"  To which I answer: What makes you think that these delicate snowflakes will enter the workforce? - Oh, I'm sure that many of them will end up doing some sort of retail, at least in the states that don't institute a $15 minimum wage.  But there are plenty of qualified people out there who either did not get infected with the current madness sweeping our campuses, or else they got over it.  Easy enough to give them the job.

-- Moe Lane on dealing with problematical employees

Quote of the Day III

The C student starts a restaurant. The A student writes restaurant reviews.

-- PJ O'Rourke

Quote of the Day IV

The only advantage to being a middle-aged man is that when you put on a jacket and tie, you're the Scary Dad. Never mind that no one has had an actually scary dad since 1966. The visceral fear remains.

-- PJ O'Rourke

Quote of the Day V

Ostendo primo conditionem hominum extra societatem civilem (quam conditionem appellare liceat statum naturae) aliam non esse quam bellum omnium contra omnes; atque in eo bello jus esse omnibus in omnia.

I demonstrate in the first place, that the state of men without civil society (which state we may properly call the state of nature) is nothing else but a mere war of all against all; and in that war all men have equal right unto all things.

-- Thomas Hobbes in Leviathan

Why Public Words Matter

From an interview with Natan Sharansky:

I was already a longtime prisoner when Ronald Reagan was elected. I didn't know much about him, and I can't say I remember having heard much about him. None of us in the Gulag knew much, and I actually knew less than most because I spent so much time in private punishment cells, where for months at a time you were totally isolated. Our first indication that Ronald Reagan might well be the key figure in our struggle, the struggle of all people fighting against tyranny, came from the ferocious denunciations of him that appeared more frequently in the official Soviet press. Now, all Soviets were experts in the art of "reading between the lines," and of course us dissidents, we were the professors of this high art form. In fact, we were so good at reading between the lines, we almost could piece together events as they really happened by what the authorities were not telling us. What they did not tell us was as important as what they did tell us, if not even more important.

We had very mixed feelings at first. Remember, we accepted it as a given that Jimmy Carter was the world's great human rights advocate. Only later, after we saw what words without action can mean, did it occur to us that words were all he could offer. But to his credit, it was Jimmy Carter who insisted on keeping the issue in the international spotlight. Remember, prior to him, no one seemed willing to offer even words. All we knew about Reagan was that he was a poorly regarded actor, and after living for so long in an Orwellian world where play-acting was all we ever experienced from our own leaders, the very fact that Reagan was an actor, I will say, left us far more concerned than encouraged at first.

Q: Were there any particular Reagan moments that you can recall being sources of strength or encouragement to you and your colleagues?

I have to laugh. People who take freedom for granted, Ronald Reagan for granted, always ask such questions. Of course! It was the great brilliant moment when we learned that Ronald Reagan had proclaimed the Soviet Union an Evil Empire before the entire world. There was a long list of all the Western leaders who had lined up to condemn the evil Reagan for daring to call the great Soviet Union an evil empire right next to the front-page story about this dangerous, terrible man who wanted to take the world back to the dark days of the Cold War. This was the moment. It was the brightest, most glorious day. Finally a spade had been called a spade. Finally, Orwell's Newspeak was dead. President Reagan had from that moment made it impossible for anyone in the West to continue closing their eyes to the real nature of the Soviet Union.

It was one of the most important, freedom-affirming declarations, and we all instantly knew it. For us, that was the moment that really marked the end for them, and the beginning for us. The lie had been exposed and could never, ever be untold now. This was the end of Lenin's "Great October Bolshevik Revolution" and the beginning of a new revolution, a freedom revolution--Reagan's Revolution.

We were all in and out of punishment cells so often--me more than most--that we developed our own tapping language to communicate with each other between the walls. A secret code. We had to develop new communication methods to pass on this great, impossible news. We even used the toilets to tap on.

China Still Can't Frack

Fracking is hard - because you need more than just oil in the ground.

But that only tells half the story, because even before the oil price crash Beijing was struggling mightily to catch up to the U.S. shale boom. Much of China's shale gas is locked away in remote regions that lack the necessary infrastructure (roads, for example) to support large drilling operations. China also has a very real water shortage problem, which compounded with the relatively complex stratigraphy has stunted its push to tap its shale.

Beijing lays claim to the world's largest shale gas reserves and third-largest shale oil reserves. Yet, as countries like Poland, Lithuania, Romania, South Africa, and the UK are all learning, simply possessing the resource isn't enough. The American energy renaissance has not come gift-wrapped; rather it has been a product of a great number of favorable factors and innovative efforts.

Supersessionism and All That

"Supersede" is a synonym for "replace".  Supersession is a Christian theological term referring to a specific replacement-namely, the replacement of God's covenant with Israel by a new covenant (new "testament") with the Church. Put differently, the Church of Christ is the new Israel. Supersessionism is the doctrine that this replacement has in fact occurred. Theologians like long words, especially if they derive from Greek or (in this case) Latin. If you like "supersessionism", how about "anti-supersessionism"? Which, logically enough, means the rejection of the replacement doctrine.

3 There Were Gay Orgies in Mecca? One things the Progressives are hell bent on is ret-conning the past to fit their delusional narrative. Based on the idea of "Kyriarchy," all the problems in the world are the cause of a small cabal of straight White cis-gendered X-tian males. For this to work, it would mean that every civilization outside of the "White" Western Civilization (which apparently stole everything from everyone else, because "evil"), recognized homosexuality at being normal and acceptable, was run by a Matriarchy™, didn't recognize the existence of "gender", &c.

29 "CNN is running a special. Showdown in Indiana" So it seems that all good leftists are expected to strictly boycott anything having to do with Indiana over this very mild law, whereby a baker may refuse to bake a cake for a gay marriage. Don't travel there! Don't buy products from Indiana businesses! Shun the bigots! But how about the far worse case of a different state which had dared pass a ballot initiative _completely outlawing_ gay marriage, until told they couldn't do so by a federal judge? Should not the tourist and business boycotts of that state be far more severe and punitive? Oh! Wait! The state in question is Commiefornia. Where a bunch of the nation's leftists actually live and work. Guess what? When the left's economic interests stand to be impaired by such boycotts, no one on the left calls for such boycotts. Funny, that.

61 "It has been fun to watch them twist themselves into a circle when they find out that the Federal RFRA was introduced by Chuck Schummer and signed by Billy Jeff." Oh, yes. Quite hilarious to see them arguing against their former selves. I've come to the realization, somewhat belatedly, that the left doesn't believe in anything. They have no core values. They seek only to destroy, and they value nothing aside from political expediency. Thus they see no contradiction in whining for 15 years that they will never ever force someone to participate in a gay marriage, and then turning around and whining that people aren't being forced to participate in a gay marriage. In their minds, they are working towards the goal of destruction, and as long as they're succeeding, they don't care about the argument. But because of this, they can't argue. They have no ethical or moral base, and so they jump around to a million different unrelated points to hide the fact that they are basically zombies. There's no point trying to debate them except to highlight their idiocy for others. They will never learn because they are incapable of thought. They flutter to the next tactic without a second thought. A mindless pile of goo infecting more and more people as it grows.

83 "Our first indication that Ronald Reagan might well be the key figure in our struggle, the struggle of all people fighting against tyranny, came from the ferocious denunciations of him that appeared more frequently in the official Soviet press." I will never cease to love the epic own-goal by the Soviet propaganda apparatchiks during the Reagan years, when Pravda and Izvestia and Tass all shouted to ordinary Soviet people about how terrible life was for ordinary American people under capitalism. Why, the elderly in the USA were so badly off they had been forced to eat cat food! Upon hearing which, millions of ordinary Soviets, who had a hard time just obtaining basic things like bread that wasn't moldy and shoes that fit properly, quietly thought to themselves, "Wait, in capitalist America, they are so rich there is special food just for cats? What a country!"

92 @61 The problem is that at this point, is it has permeated the mainstream consciousness, for the worse. Most people don't even know, nor care, that this particular law is on the books in many other states. Most people don't even know, nor care, that there is a federal law that states nearly the same thing, and that it was signed into law by their hero Billy Jeff Clinton. So, we can prove this, that, and the other till the cows come home. Perception is reality in this case. People are going to believe what they are going to believe. I really don't think there is anything that could come out, that would make those people change their minds.

99 I missed the Harry Reid thread, but I'm convinced his story is bullshit and easily disproven. I read his account: the exercise band "snapped" causing him to be "flung" in to a filing cabinet. Here's the thing. When an exercise band snaps or even comes untied from whatever its anchored to, that would happen while you're putting pressure on it by pulling on it, right? And if it snapped, Harry would have been expected to fall backwards, correct? Yet he broke 4 ribs on the front of his body. And if the band did snap and he accidentally punched himself in the face or the band hit him in the eye to the point where he had to have reconstructive surgery (and, according to his office, suffered from a concussion), how strong is this 75 year old guy? An elastic exercise band wouldn't be able to break the bones around an eye socket, and if it was his fist, wouldn't we expect him to had injured that and probably broken a bone or two in his hands / fingers? After all, face bones are much stronger than finger bones. Someone should do a dramatic reconstruction video of Harry Reids account of his accident to show how ridiculous it is.

And the answer is a fuckton. Like the guy who hit you most likely has to have pins put in to his knuckles because he just broke half the bones in his hand. That's WAY more pressure then I'd (as a young guy who works out) ever exert on an exercise band, and would ever be ABLE to exert on an exercise band. I don't buy the mafia thing either though... My guess is it was something mundane but embarrassing. He got drunk and fell face first up the stairs or something and was so inebriated his reflexes were too slow for him to throw his hands out to catch himself.

181 I stopped watching late night talk shows, with the exception of Craig Ferguson occasionally, a long time ago. It isn't just that they target conservatives, it's that they're so patronizing about it. What's particularly galling is that a good share of their "jokes" about conservatives aren't the least bit funny. The jokes aren't there to be funny, they're there to drive home a political agenda.

 

Posted by: nerdygirl at March 30, 2015 10:23 PM

 

It isn't just the politics. Ferguson is entertaining. The others aren't. Ferguson will get guests, wing it during the segment and usually manages to bring the funny. He doesn't go with the usual angle, he'll let them plug whatever their latest thing is for a minute, then it's something weird or funny that he knows you are interested in hearing about.

The problem is that at this point, is it has permeated the mainstream consciousness, for the worse. Most people don't even know, nor care, that this particular law is on the books in many other states. Most people don't even know, nor care, that there is a federal law that states nearly the same thing, and that it was signed into law by their hero Billy Jeff Clinton.

So, we can prove this, that, and the other till the cows come home. Perception is reality in this case. People are going to believe what they are going to believe. I really don't think there is anything that could come out, that would make those people change their minds.

289 @Maet, Good article on supercessionism. The idea that Christians replaced Israel in God's order of things is quite possibly the worst heresy to ever enter the church and has resulted in horrible suffering for the Jewish people for some 1,700 years. Author Joel Richardson recently released an important book titled, "When A Jew Rules the World: What the Bible Really Says about Israel in the Plan of God." There are plenty of resources about the history of Jewish persecution, but most of it is pretty dry history. Richardson outlines the history of supercessionism, how it hurt Jews and hardened the hearts of Christians, and why it is important for Christians to love and support the Jews. http://astore.amazon.com/aoshq-20/detail/1938067711

I'm "only" 62 and when we were in our teens we knew we would get a real ass kickin if we pushed it too far.

So why does the principal then get to say, "you are barred from wearing that jacket in school" just because the kid didnt earn the silly letter "on the field." It would be like if he wore a karate black belt to school while never having attained black belt status. Could the principal say, "you're only a green belt (or whatever), so you can only wear the green belt to school, not the black belt?" Like what makes a principal the arbiter of these things? Varsity letters have no legal meaning, they're just little trophies.

336 Yeah, but... Okay, try this on. Could the kid wear that jacket around town without any repercussions? yes, definitely. So why does the principal then get to say, "you are barred from wearing that jacket in school" just because the kid didnt earn the silly letter "on the field." It would be like if he wore a karate black belt to school while never having attained black belt status. Could the principal say, "you're only a green belt (or whatever), so you can only wear the green belt to school, not the black belt?" Like what makes a principal the arbiter of these things? Varsity letters have no legal meaning, they're just little trophies. Posted by: mynewhandle at March 30, 2015 11:01 PM (AkOaV) I am fine with him wearing the jacket, I am saying the letter is not deserved. anyone can buy the jacket and some guys do buy a jacket and wear it until they letter and sew their letter on. when I was in hs if a similar situation had arisen we would have gotten into a position where he could earn a letter. it is bad enough we have a generation of people coming up who did not keep score in games. now everyone gets a letter even if they do not participate?

Posted by: yankeefifth at March 30, 2015 06:04 PM (gsfK5)

337 You're taking away something from a DS kid that makes him happy and isn't really hurting anyone. Posted by: BCochran1981 - Credible Hulk at March 30, 2015 10:59 PM (GEICT) Exactly. And I have a hard time believing his classmates were giving him shit for it. At that age. Sounds like something a vengeful adult would do... Maybe the mom had some words with the principal or another administrator in the past? Again, it's not like he was dressing up in an Army uniform with patches and medals pretending to be a war hero. It's a silly meaningless letter sewed on to a jacket that will be thrown in a closet and only dragged out every 10 years within 5 minutes of graduating high school.

I'm lost on the story about the letter jacket.

Did the mom simply go out and buy the jacket and the letter? Cause I'm not real cool with that. You work hard and earn that shit.

If it is a back-pressure problem from the CAT Drill a small hole in front of the CAT. Then when the system is at temp inject water through the hole. The Cat is a ceramic it will shatter and your can then empty the CAT relieving the backpressure.

re: 2004 Taurus - Them "pinholes":

My original intake has melted pinholes around the PCV port- this is the same area where EGR gasses are released into the intake. Obviously, excessive EGR gasses are being released for some reason, resulting in excessive temperatures. I noticed tonight that inside the original intake manifold there is far more massive melting damage. The replacement manifold appears to have the same damage. Only a couple pinholes show so far, but the interior damage appears pretty extensive from the PCV fitting hole.

I had a 1979 Mustang (yeah, I'm sorry too....) that ate valve cover gaskets like candy -- they used a metal for the valve covers that had radically different thermal expansion characteristics from the heads, and heating/cooling would saw the gasket apart. I can just imagine how that works with plastic.

363 If everyone can go buy their own jacket and their own letter without having earned it, doesn't lettering cease to mean anything in terms of accomplishment? Why would this be good.

Posted by: L, Elle at March 30, 2015 06:09 PM (KB6If)

364 The manifold. Aluminum alloy, cast iron, or plastic? The first two are affected by the after effects of ethanol in the gas. Ethanol absorbs water from the air. High air flow velocities in the manifold transform the water micro-droplets into a highly erosive water blaster. And after the motor is shut off, the remaining water happily feeds the corrosion in the areas already pitted while the engine had been running. In time, it eats it's way through the metal. The plastic manifolds? The ethanol itself attacks the plastic. Depending on the composition of the plastic, it could be direct erosion, or with other polymers, it could become embrittled in reaction to the ethanol.

But one of my buddies played football all four years, couldn't wear a letter because he never started. That was the standard, and he adhered to it. Fair or not. I also just can get much outrage up about it. Posted by: DC in River City at March 30, 2015 11:11 PM DC!

It might have meant nothing to you, but to some of us it was representative of the hard work and effort we put into something. For me, for us on the baseball team, it meant we were out on the field sweating our asses off 6 days a week, practicing and playing. Spring Break? We spent it working on the field to make sure it was properly maintained. Effort and dedication should mean something. It did to us. The letter itself? Just cloth and stitches. Meaningless. What the letter stood for? Something altogether different and worthwhile.

425 I linked this last night, and I have to do it again. This is an astoundingly good article: AWOL from the Summer of Love https://tinyurl.com/nudk9z5 In 1966, Bob Dylan was a superstar. He was making groundbreaking rock music, the likes of which no one had ever heard before. Then he had a motorcycle accident and dropped off the face of the earth. Meanwhile, other rock musicians went on to create psychedelic music and acid rock. In 1967, Dylan got together with some friends, and recorded some music privately that was never intended to be released to the public. They explored folk, blues, country, and gospel styles, and created a new synthesis. Their music had nothing whatsoever to do with what was popular at the time. But aside from one mumbled aside about burning draft cards, nowhere in the hours of recordings Dylan made with The Band is there the slightest mention of the concerns of the 1960s - peace, race, revolution, psychedelia. Their collective secession from the fuss of the sixties astonished the English guitarist Eric Clapton when he went to visit them: "It became quite obvious to me I was on a different planet to these guys," Clapton recalled in a 2004 interview. "I had an Afghan jacket and curly hair and pink trousers. They looked like The Hole in the Wall Gang."

437 If whatever the heck publicist for that school's first thought wasn't "hey, why don't we make this kid an honorary member and have a picture of the team standing with him for the news," then I'd bet the phrase "I didn't see this coming" is used all-too-often in their life.

That's not to say the answer is always "do what will be least ugly on the news," but when it comes to disabled kids and school honors, as many have said, stingy makes you look like a dick.

It's like Star Wars Kid (hang with me here). If he'd held a press conference, laughed nervously and said, "yeah, that was pretty embarrassing," he probably would have been a nerd hero. Instead, threats, lawsuits, therapists, all-around angst.

Currently, East High awards letters to students who participate on special-needs basketball and soccer teams, but the letter looks different from the one awarded to varsity athletes.

He can get a letter, just not the letter his mother bought for him. From a light googling, it looks like the kid didn't even meet the standards for the special needs letter, based on participation and such. Hence, the purchase.

Frankly sounds like a whiny Mom.

510 MWNP. Bummer on O'Reiley's not having it. So, here's what you do before you install a new or salvage one. Get some thin-wall stainless tubing, that'll friction-fit into the PCV neck in question. Very thin wall, and very tight fit. Get a plumber to flare one end of the stainless, so that it'll stop further entry into the PCV neck. The outer diameter of the flare should be exactly the same as the O.D. of the intake neck, or a hundredth or so less. File it in place, if need be. For a sterling fit, heat up the new manifold on a stove top for a while. Get it good and hot. After you've formed the stainless insert, pop that baby into the freezer for an hour. The manifold will expand, the stainless will shrink. It ought to drop right in, but when they both resume room temerpature, the interference fit will be as good as a weld. And now, your new manifold won't have any interior pitting or erosion problems, 'evermore. Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

512 "Same here! I couldn't wait to GTFO of HS and away from my parents. Finished early too." I got lucky because my school made graduating early really easy if you were on the honors path. All you had to do was take English 3 and 4 at the same time assuming you hadn't failed anything along the way. They changed that a few years after I graduated because too many of us were escaping their indoctrination centers. The only time this decision backfired on me was when I wasn't even invited to my 10 year reunion. Oh well.

Posted by: Misanthropic Humanitarian at March 30, 2015 06:44 PM (U2utM)

518 So, I found out something today. As anyone who has met me can attest, I'm not exactly GQ material -- but, as my hair was getting to Albert Einstein length and the days are definitely warmer, I went in to get a haircut.




As usual, I just go to Supercuts. I'd go to "Joe's Sheep Shearing" if there was one nearby, but things are too urbanized around here for that. There used to be a local chain that I'd go to, but they folded.



So I go to Supercuts and there are the usual bunch of folks cutting hair and the usual impediments to me feeling comfortable (disclose your name, phone number, email address, social security number, date-of-birth, sexual preference, primary bank, criminal record, etc. and we'll put you on the list for the next available stylist.....). So, I put down "Cthulhu X; 408-555-1212; GFY@noway.com; 321-54-9876; 3/29/15; yes; First National Bank of Zimbabwe; not yet" and stand around, bombarded with demands that I load their Supercuts App which will allow them to track my GPS information in real time until I get another device.



Anyhoo -- shortly afterward, my name is called and I'm shocked to find that I'd drawn a cute young Vietnamese lady.....normally I get Quasimodo in a tutu and they keep stroking my arm while they ask me how I want my hair cut.



So she's wetting down my unruly mop and starts talking about how I want my hair cut, and I explain that it's getting into summer and I don't need the insulation.....so "shorter" would be good. And then she asks if I part my hair on my left and if she should cut it that way or cut it evenly. And I say, "yes, yes -- parted on the left."




And, then, thinking about it a little bit, I'm like -- "what do you mean by that?" And she shows me -- my hair had previously been cut about 3" longer on the left side of my bald spot than it was on the right.




That's right -- if you're going bald and don't watch them, Supercuts will silently give you a comb-over without asking. I watched my dad extend and extend his comb-over until there were a scant three hairs bridging the six-inch gap....and I swore that I'd never go that route. And here, without even asking me, they'd gone on doing that to me for years.

564 Haircut lore: I used to get my hair cut at the TGF in Texas City, TX. It was next door to the Kroger, and all in all not a bad place in a blue collar town. The lass who cut my hair, gets it exactly right, which isn't easy to do. I have wavy hair, with a very sharp turn at the wave angles. Not softly flowing wavy hair, but a hard break wave. If it's not cut right, or if I let it go a week or two longer than "time for a haircut", I end up looking like Buckwheat doing a bad Einstein impression. Anyway, my haircuttress, being an entrepreneur, very highly talented, trained and qualified, quits TGF, and sets up shop in a back room of a men's barber shop. Directly in the heart of the 'hood, in the shadow of the refineries in Texas City. Needless to say, I'm the only cracka' whut goes in there. Been going in there for the past five years, and she's been cutting my hair for ten years. As you might imagine, I've enjoyed some rather interesting conversations there. The whole Trayvon thing, from beginning to end, and then some. I've never had a problem there, and I may have opened an eye or two. Made a friend for sure, and have sat n' enjoyed a cigar out front with some of the clientele. At least I don't have a bald spot with which to contend. Not bad for hitting 57 this coming Sunday, what?

Look at a schools' budget sometime. Look where the vast, overwhelming majority of the money goes. Not even to "educators" (they're not "teachers" anymore), but to enough "administrators" to run a decent sized federal agency. And that's replicated in every small town and every school district in America. Thousands and thousands of adults who get paid to go to school every day, yet don't teach or do ... anything we would describe as "work". And that's without even getting in to the teachers and their lavish pay and benefits for what is essentially a 20-year long part-time contract babysitting gig that continues to pay you until you die.

637 Posted by: Stop the SoCons PAC at March 31, 2015 12:14 AM (F2IAQ) Not just the administrators, though. In my (previous) state, they had an AWESOME system for teachers wherein the state guaranteed and managed all pensions and wherein your tenure followed you throughout the state. In other words, towns negotiated pay and pensions, but the state guaranteed it, ran the fund, and paid you out. So you start in a low paying town with high benefits, then at year 15 jump to a higher paying town with lower benefits, get out in 20 with your high benefits from the low paying town -- because the "formula" the STATE used to devise your check is to go by the per centage of income guaranteed when you first got tenured, yet average your last 3 years salaries (which were earned in the "high paying" town). Confusing? Well, the teachers figured it out and they all make out like fucking bandits, so it can't be that hard to understand. Maybe I'm just bad at explain.

679 I've had shitty haircuts from barbers, and decent ones. I've had shitty haircuts from 'salon stylists,' and good ones.

The key is find the one that does a decent job, and training him/her.  Meaning, you stick with that person and remember or write down what you don't/ do like.
"It grew out too fast on the sides", or "can't part it right" - whatever. Just write it down and take the note to the same dude/gal again, and correct it. Bonus points if you know the razor setting for the back. (F'ing ask if they don't tell you first time.)

They'll push product if they're a 'salon stylist' ; just buy it once and beg off later. The barber won't of course, but he'll expect you come in more regular like. Do that as well if that's your preference.

Key is to make sure you know what works for you and repeat the event regularly.  Oh, and tip 25% if you think you can 'train' the barber/stylist if the first cut is decent.

I came out to have a beer, sat down and started working on a project. Suddenly someone is looming over me. It's Ed. "We don't like your kind in this bar" "Fuck you asshole, white lives matter" Big laugh, handshakes, hugs, animated conversation. He called JEF in 2012. I paid off the bet in beer but he never let's me forget it. Arguments about elections ( did Biden fail to deliver Delaware in 2008? iPad to the rescue "you can embiggen it all you want Ed, it ain't getting any redder"), electability, Cruz, Reagan, natural born citizen, Obama's race as a factor in the GOPe's lack of resistance, tons of stuff. Great conversation. Great fun. Great friendship. Great drinks. Everything race relations in America SHOULD be, but isn't in this post racial wonderland we live in now. I needed that.

721 Yeah, I've been shaving my head for about two years now. All I can say is that I'm aerodynamic and waterproof. I paid $65.00 for the Norelco. I used to pay $30.00 every two weeks to get my hair buzzed. The thing I miss the most is getting all the trimming around my ears and eyebrows. Now I kind of look like an egg with ears and eyebrows like Thufor from Dune.
Kind of interesting that the older I got, the more I started growing hair in the oddest places. Ears, nose, shoulders, eyebrows.
It must be gravity. Instead of hair growing on my head, it seems to have migrated south. Has to be gravity.

743 A 16 ft. aluminum jon boat, with standard width and gunwales is usually a 25 hp hull. They make wide body jons with deeper gunnel's that'll handle 40 horse. Go up to a 16 ft. Bayliner runabout, and that's into the 70 to 90 hp range, and being a Bayliner, about a five year transom life. It's a far heavier hull with a deep-vee profile, so it needs more power than the lightweight johnboat. Then, there are some 16 ft. serious boats that are built like tanks. Early Chaparrals are up to a half-inch thick of solid fiberglass, with a semi tri-hull design. Weigh a ton. 125 hp isn't out of line on those. Thing is, usually the manufacturer has a placard on the hull, including the serial number, which states how many HP the boat is rated for. It's a Govt' requirement to have the placard, but the Govt' doesn't determine the HP ratings. They just insist that the manufacturer take the liability for the rating. Corporations, being conservative, are not stating the max power that their hulls can take. There's a bit of fudge factor there. Weight of the engine is more of a factor than the HP produced. If your transom is nearly swamped just due to the weight of the engine, then find a lighter engine. But yeah, you can over-HP a boat, too. I had a 12 ft thin fiberglass boat, barely more than a rowboat. 20 hp on the back of that would give just under 27 mph, and I riveted a trim tab onto the starboard transom, just to keep the prop torque from twisting the hull onto it's right side under full power. Boats are fun, boating is fun. But do be careful. Anything out on the water tends to be very unforgiving of mistakes, miscalculations, accidents and pure fkupups. Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

746 704 *sigh* How nice is it to have a pub buddy of a different race ( he's black ) that you can just TALK about stuff with? He's conservative, which helps, but here's how it went.

I came out to have a beer, sat down and started working on a project. Suddenly someone is looming over me. It's Ed. "We don't like your kind in this bar"

"Fuck you asshole, white lives matter"

Big laugh, handshakes, hugs, animated conversation. He called JEF in 2012. I paid off the bet in beer but he never let's me forget it. Arguments about elections ( did Biden fail to deliver Delaware in 2008? iPad to the rescue "you can embiggen it all you want Ed, it ain't getting any redder"), electability, Cruz, Reagan, natural born citizen, Obama's race as a factor in the GOPe's lack of resistance, tons of stuff.

Great conversation. Great fun. Great friendship. Great drinks. Everything race relations in America SHOULD be, but isn't in this post racial wonderland we live in now.

I needed that.

Posted by: Weirddave at March 31, 2015 12:50 AM (7TK5d)



Years ago, I would have been a little crossways with you about that. I didn't want to "have a pub buddy of a different race", because race factored so little into things I cared about. If we were talking about Roger, I'd talk about the quality fish he was breeding, how he would come up with very insightful and tricky questions when we had an expert at our meetings, how I looked to him as a resource for good advice. And, after we talked about these things and you said, "great, I need to meet this guy!", I'd say "he's over at that table" -- and, then, to clarify, say either, "he's the short guy", "he's the guy in the blue sweater", "he's sitting at this end of the table", or "he's the black guy" -- with equal emphasis in each case.



But today, with constant examples like the JEF and his grifter consort, Eric Holder, the perjurin' townspeople of Ferguson, Al Sharpton, and the like.....it's nice to be reminded that Fantasyland on the Potomac doesn't represent race in the real world.

And perhaps the team could have made a position for him. Ball inflation tech?



I had a distant cousin who was Down's Syndrome. As a young child, I was often frightened by Mike (real name) because he was loud and boisterous, but with a genuinely kind soul. Ultimately, he got a job as a towel boy at the MARC (Mens Athletic and Recreational Club) in Vancouver, which was a hangout for the movers and shakers in the Howe Street stock market scene. This was long before any "ghey" connotations to such a club were heard of, BTW.



Mike became a fixture there, and was quite beloved by the clientele, who were mostly big wheels in the market. It was a sad day when he died in his early thirties of congenital heart disease.

766 3 There Were Gay Orgies in Mecca? One things the Progressives are hell bent on is ret-conning the past to fit their delusional narrative. Based on the idea of "Kyriarchy," all the problems in the world are the cause of a small cabal of straight White cis-gendered X-tian males. For this to work, it would mean that every civilization outside of the "White" Western Civilization (which apparently stole everything from everyone else, because "evil"), recognized homosexuality at being normal and acceptable, was run by a Matriarchy, didn't recognize the existence of "gender", etc. More: http://politicalhat.com/?p=8718 I'm ashamed to say that I was totally in agreement with the beginnings of this movement, back when I was young and stupid, and no one had any idea just how extreme and dangerous it would become. I totally accepted the worldview originally promulgated by Marija Gimbutas, a Lithuanian archaeologist who claimed that all of human society was matriarchal and peaceful until the rise of a specific tribe of cruel manly patriarchal war-loving masculine man-dudes we now call "the Indo-Europeans." Emanating from what in now the Ukraine/southern Russia, they spread the concept of patriarchy wherever they went, conquering and raping, and turning the idyllic peaceful woman-worshipping human beings of the world into bloodthirsty male-god worshippers. Really, it all seemed to make so much sense, and explained everything...until I found out that it was all total bullshit. Her theory was based on selective rejection of inconvenient evidence -- such as that pre-Indo-European cultures were just as violent (if not more violent) than later cultures, even if the pre-IndoEuropeans' primary deities were female deities. (And there's not any actual evidence for that, either, now we realize.) Anyway, it took well over a decade of unquestioningly accepting the "fact" that early humans worshipped goddesses and that they therefore were peaceful and non-hierarchical, before I got me some actual knowledge and woke up from my reverie. But the activists/students in your comment/post -- they are a generation or two down Delusion Road; not only do they not know the real facts, but their professors don't know the real facts either. The madness has ossified. The cement of Leftist Mass Mania has hardened and cannot be reshaped. The only solution now is the Jackhammer of Reality. Brace yourself for the Ugly Times.

Given your family background, I'm not surprised at all to find that you started with a whackjob narrative.....but it's not just that the current activists/students are two+ generations down Delusion Road -- they got there by following roadsigns put up by Gramscians.



One of the things that had a great deal of influence in my life was taking a class in American History -- I forget when, maybe 7th grade -- and thinking, "this makes no sense, whatsoever." It was just about where a handful of American colonists could prevail over the British Empire because of Crispus Attucks.



So, I started reading about the conflict from the European side.....and soon became aware that there were massive waves of power and contention world-wide that dominated that period of time. Looking at those the way my textbooks did was like taking a sheet of printer paper, using a hole-punch to punch ten holes in it, and laying it over the text of this blog....then mislabeling whatever showed-through.



But it was all completely intentional.

777 OK My barber story, Joe, was my barber back when RJ Gavin was teaching me poetry. I went to Joe because after getting yelled at by my dad to "go get your hair cut! you look like a girl!", I found that Joe would cut my hair minimally, but he asked for my buck in advance, and then he would walk across the street to the 'Spot Cafe' and spend it on a couple of shots, then come back and snip around a bit. This always struck me as peculiar.

778 Yeah....if I tried to cut my own hair, I'd better have a backup career as an Impressionist painter. They have bars in Norfolk with more than one bathroom??? Posted by: cthulhu ------------------------- Yeah, I started cutting my own to save cash. Actually had the ex do it once after I tightened up the son one day. Then I went to pool league that NOGHT, and four different people asked "wtf happened to your head?" I finished her hackjob the next day, and have been doing it ever since. Norfolk bar bathrooms? Dude, I can show you a couple places where you wouldn't say they even had ONE bathroom. went in one that had no running water. Seriously. Three urinals on the wall - all filled with ice. It smelled like I imagine The Barrel does after a particularly raucous weekend. When I asked the bartender how I was supposed to wash my hands, she looked at me like I was speaking Peruvian. I checked the women's, no water, and it smelled even worse...

You can probably get used to anything, but I had enough of trying to do shit in the mirror when I changed the power door-lock widget in my car -- and when you're talking about cutting my own hair......I didn't even realize how bald I was until I was at Maker Faire under a camera-equipped crane with a godson and wondered, "who the hell is that bald guy standing next to Bryce?!?"

Hah!



So, just to share.....I make it a point to meet Morons wearing Cthulhu-themed t-shirts. After all, I have a few. But, while some are pretty direct references (e.g. http://tinyurl.com/ob749kb ), some references are a bit more subtle (e.g. http://tinyurl.com/obx4jsx )....



So, when I met up with Vendette, I was wearing http://tinyurl.com/q63hexk -- and one of her coworkers actually "got it"!!!!



Now for the deeply geeky part (which, to be fair, I don't know if the coworker totally grokked)..... Cthulhu, of course, is an extraterrestrial transdimensional being and -- as such -- has a name that isn't really designed for 4D earthlings to pronounce. It's not really suited at all for the standard "vocal chords and lips" paradigm favored by humans.




So, there has come to be a variety of favored pronunciations among Cthulhu enthusiasts -- http://tinyurl.com/poqrmss -- but the more casual ones tend to lean more toward ease-of-use....and sound roughly like "cathulhu" or even "cooth".



So, the joke of the shirt is -- if you're going to pronounce it "cathulhu", what's it gonna look like?

IPAs would never be as popular as they are, if they weren't a sign of rebellion against American "cardboard beers" pre-deregulation.




Technically, they are highly-hopped, light ales fermented to a high level of alcohol. They were originally created in England to ship to India -- the high levels of hops and alcohol helped preserve them during their long, warm journey.

802 Years ago, I would have been a little crossways with you about that. I didn't want to "have a pub buddy of a different race", because race factored so little into things I cared about. If we were talking about Roger, I'd talk about the quality fish he was breeding, how he would come up with very insightful and tricky questions when we had an expert at our meetings, how I looked to him as a resource for good advice. And, after we talked about these things and you said, "great, I need to meet this guy!", I'd say "he's over at that table" -- and, then, to clarify, say either, "he's the short guy", "he's the guy in the blue sweater", "he's sitting at this end of the table", or "he's the black guy" -- with equal emphasis in each case. But today, with constant examples like the JEF and his grifter consort, Eric Holder, the perjurin' townspeople of Ferguson, Al Sharpton, and the like.....it's nice to be reminded that Fantasyland on the Potomac doesn't represent race in the real world. I may have stated it badly, but that was kinda my point. Race exists, and we can acknowledge that, and joke and tease each other about it, but ultimately it doesn't matter, we're both Americans, we're both people, equally valuable and important. That's the way it should be, and that's the road we as a country were on before the race baiters derailed us for their own personal profit. It was nice to go back into the world as it should be for a convivial evening.

No, you stated it fine.....it's just, growing up in California, I was pretty oblivious. While I knew that it would be bad for me if I went to Watts, it didn't occur to me that there would be a racist element to that danger -- after all, the Watts Towers were built by Sabato Rodia, an Italian immigrant. Maybe I'd be a target if I didn't capisce....



Reminds me of when I had to execute a substantial layoff [about 12 from 40 people] in Silicon Valley in the early 90s (I was the Controller). Somebody commented that post-layoff, we wouldn't have any blacks working at the company any more. I eventually had to ask to learn who he was talking about. It isn't the first thing I focus on, not really in the top ten, and it's sometimes too easy for me to miss.

853 Today, the term "poi dog" is most often used to refer to mixed breed dogs, but also attribute specific characteristics to Poi dogs, including the ability to eat anything, a strong will, and a unique appearance composed of different breeds. The term "poi dog" is also colloquially used to describe people of mixed Hawaiian-Anglo heritage, although the more common term in use is hapa.

854 "Our first indication that Ronald Reagan might well be the key figure in our struggle, the struggle of all people fighting against tyranny, came from the ferocious denunciations of him that appeared more frequently in the official Soviet press. Now, all Soviets were experts in the art of "reading between the lines," and of course us dissidents, we were the professors of this high art form. In fact, we were so good at reading between the lines, we almost could piece together events as they really happened by what the authorities were not telling us. What they did not tell us was as important as what they did tell us, if not even more important." Who me? All I said was Rahm Emanuel is a "ballerina school dropout". Neither Fernando Bujones nor Patrick Swayze dropped out of the Joffrey Ballet School, like he did.

having some interesting days.  my sciatica went away until a week ago today and then I was lifting something not very heavy and it all came back at once.  sux big time.  I hate it.


I am dragging my ass thru the work world without giving a darn about any of it.  I have decided to quit, I just need to choose when.


I am playing in 3 bands cuz I don't know how to say no.  But one of them will end on 4/22 forever.  Apparently none of them can actually hear so it seems to be working out OK.


The newest incarnation of the handrail from hell is once again in the final wrap stage.  The bottom is wrapped -- 2 sides and a top left to go and then file to shape, route in the grips, sand, finish and mount.  So, it is maybe 1/2 done.

They'll tell you that it's about physical conditioning and BMI and neck position and all sorts of BS....I have heard that 60% of NFL linebackers have OSA -- and they do daily drills to ensure their necks are solid.

899 Yeah, I gave up Rock 'n Rollin back in '77. The tipping point was when we somehow got a gig in New Jersey ON CHRISTMAS EVE but it got CANCELLED (had to drive from OHIO) We got a room at a scuzzy motel, five of us, plus two roadies. and I got to sleep on the floor. Snow blew through the huge crack under the door, and sort of blew on my face all night. That morning I made my decision to fug it all and got my first job in the computer industry, after giving the boys some time to come up with a replacement. One of the funniest things, that even today elicits unbelieving guffaws, was the fact that the two roadies names were (and I shit you not) Bruce SHAMPOO and Jeff HARE geddet? shampoo and hair.

It does depend on what you are going to do with it. For a dude messing around home the stuff is great, Its like one stop shopping, you got all the food groups. The 75 watt combo amp they make right now is pretty cool, the 30 isn't bad either. I do know they make half stack type amps, and they are supposed to be real good. Personally, nothing replaces the sheer horsepower of tube amps. I have regular rack units for effects and would rather use my tube amps before any modeling amp, but if I was just a home player looking to have a shitload of stuff at my fingers the line 6 stuff does a shitload of things. You do have to really set up your presets though and you will be tweaking them for awhile, but once you get them set up you'll have some cool shit happening.

See if taking a hard-core B (like a B-50) doesn't perk you up in about 2 weeks. If it doesn't, there's not much of an investment.....but if it does, it tends to make a larger difference than you'd expect.

910 ====is he doing good? Posted by: jc at March 31, 2015 04:06 AM (iRJ+A) 1st practice last Sunday, so not sure. He plays with one of guys in a different band, so I'm thinking it might gel better than with a group of complete strangers ... His rule is "no wives, look what Yoko did to the Beatles" so I stay out of it : -))

912 I understand. Somehow I got it in my head that I wanted to be a more complete player. I think it might be good for me in lots of ways, but the sense of needing training wheels again is certainly unsettling. But you know -- if you know a lick, you know a lick -- the question is: will I know when and where to play it? Posted by: jc at March 31, 2015 03:46 AM (iRJ+A) I used to have those arguments with myself. Then I came to terms with what I am. I'm a metal guitar player, and in that genre I'm yoda level. Whenever I try to branch out some else suffers. I did classical for some years and it started screwing up my picking hand, so when I would pick up the electric I would start dropping the pick, and I never..drop..the..pick. I said screw it. I need to stick in my natural realm.

They have to be that sharp. You need that wood to come off clean or else you are fucked. I have a really good sharpener I use for all the plane blades and chisels. I keep them like razors.

I always struggle with that.   keeping a plane is great working condition is really frustrating for me. 


we have also been resorting to building our own planes to work on THFH cuz there are so many radii and undulations where running a router is a bitch.  made a few plane and gouge blades out of old carbide circular saw blades.   so-so, but getting better at it.

939 I always struggle with that. keeping a plane is great working condition is really frustrating for me. Posted by: jc at March 31, 2015 05:16 AM (iRJ+A) I have a bunch of planes, so I picked a few of each size and set them up to do basically one thing. They are set up for different depths of cut, and I always do a test pass on a piece of scrap to make sure the blade is square with the cutting surface. The mouth adjustment is critical too. I'm also using old bailey planes. Most are around 80- 100 years old, the oldest being 1874. I don't think I'm using anything much newer than the 1930's. You set those suckers up and they stay good.

where would I find those?  I see guys with walls covered with old planes but I have no idea where to get them.

Posted by: jc at March 31, 2015 12:38 AM (iRJ+A)

941 There used to be a yahoo group dedicated to finding and trading them

Posted by: Jean at March 31, 2015 12:39 AM (ztOda)

942 Yeah that's another thing ebay fucked up. I used to grab those old bailey planes for $10-20 each with some really nice ones with full never reshrapened blades maybe hitting $30-40. Last I looked I saw junk going for $30-40.

943 where would I find those? I see guys with walls covered with old planes but I have no idea where to get them. Posted by: jc at March 31, 2015 05:38 AM (iRJ+A) Yeah I would be one of those guys. I think I have 50-60 of them. Ebay always has tons of them, but you do need to know what to look for and what to actually pay. You see some that have very slight surface rust going for $20 with a full blade and that's a steal, because those can be cleaned up nice. The other thing is "type", basically every era has a type number, type 1, type 2, etc all the way up to maybe type 19 being the last of any good ones. You normally would stay below type 16. that's the last of the good ones. Type 17 are the war era planes when brass and hardwoods were rationed, so there are no Brazilian rosewood handles or brass fittings. Ebay is flooded with them.

Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Division at March 31, 2015 12:45 AM (FMbng)

944 Heres a good example. I believe this is a type 11, made around 1910. it looks in pretty nice shape. I'm guessing it will hit $40-50. http://tinyurl.com/p7hcavg
