Quote of the Day

When all is said and done, Civilizations do not fall because of the barbarians at the gates. Nor does a great city fall from the death wish of bored and morally bankrupt stewards presumably sworn to its defense. Civilizations fall only because each citizen of the city comes to accept that nothing can be done to rally and rebuild broken walls; that ground lost may never be recovered; and that greatness lived in our grandparents but not our grandchildren. Yes, our betters tell us these things daily. But that doesn't mean we have to believe it.

-- Bill Whittle in The Undefended City

Slaughter at the Bridge: The Colossal Bronze Age Battle That Is Unknown to History

Around 3200 years ago two large armies fought a pitched battle in Northern Germany near the Baltic Sea, possibly one of the largest ancient battles every fought. The armies were made up of full-time warriors who had traveled long distances to the battle site and used the best technology available at the time. Yet there is no record of it and it appears in no history book.

It's great news for the WNBA counting on every single guy who said he'd watch the sport when there was dunking.

81 A typographical error is a simple mistake. It makes for good jokes.

Grammar and syntax are what thought is made of. It takes a special sort of person (I won't say "jerk," although the author managed to work it in there -- let me just say fucked-up loser and let it go at that) to have such a low regard for those he's communicating with that he forces them to decrypt his meaning. Not unlike getting stoned and expressing everything as "you  know, man," it works fine as long as everyone in your communicating group has exactly the same mental content, but that's a continually decreasing denominator.

Yes, "disagreeable." That must be a bad thing. Because we want to agree with everyone, don't we? If you require others to expend extra effort to figure out what you're trying to say, why would you expect them to trust your skills in anything else? Sloppy language, sloppy thinking, and if you can't engineer a thought you won't be working on our cars or buildings. Now call me a Nazi.

90 Whittle's a great guy, but it's a bit worse than being told by our "betters" that "nothing can be done". The bulk of those in a position to do something are, in fact, not doing anything. And there doing more and more nothing all the time. From the physics department chairmen who simply couldn't imagine his climate "science" colleagues being corrupt power-mad frauds, to the Pacific Command CINC who believes "climate change" is his top priority, to his colleagues in the brass who kowtow to every single absurd social engineering ukaz flying out of the lunatic WH, to the corporate CEOs/boards pre-capitulating to ANY SJW extortion now matter how ridiculous, or scamming rent-seeking opportunities out of them, to academics cravenly submitting to these retarded Red Guards with better haircuts now passing for "students" - the "betters" are doing a lot more than talking.

107 So, in other news, today was trash pickup day at Casa de Cthulhu -- and with all the trash cans out of the way. it became evident that the random stain on the wall of my neighbor's house was because someone had crapped on it. [The little pile of paper at the bottom made it definitive.] So, evidently it's a thing while you're walking down the street to dash up between two random houses, hike down your trousers next to their trash cans, and take an explosive runny shit on their wall, wipe your ass with some McDonald's napkins you carry with you for the purpose, and drop the napkins in the runoff. I'm so happy to still be living in this fucked-up state.

170 PSO2 anime is all right. It has its moments. Starts with kinda nothing guy Itsuki who is suddenly tapped by the high school council president, Rina, to become the vice-president and to play PSO2. She wants to prove to the school admin that gaming won't impact grades or such. So Itsuki, being newb, creates a character that looks like him and uses his real name. But then things pick up as he does adventure and level up while learning about ARKS, Darkers, NPCs, quests, and such. Itsuki's grades suffer because he becomes addicted. Rina chews him out. And there is a foreign transfer student whom everyone starts to call Ai-Ai-chan. Itsuki gets broadsided by finding out Orga-Cat, the cat-girl, is actually a guy and he meets others in RL whom he has adventured with and they become a group of companions who help each other out.

And Itsuki discovers that PSO is reality. Darkers do exist and they are looking for someone who can become the avatar for their leader Dark Falz.

183 is anyone open to help me figure out a problem? I made plans to put my sons ashes where he would want them. My daughter is throwing a hissy fit because I invited my ex's family who tried to help as much as they could. She is angry since she cannot be there but doesn't understand that I don't want to be alone. To give my daughter credit. she gave birth to my granddaughter days after her dad passed and barely got to day goodbye to her brother.
The family has been no help her dad's ashes are not dispersed as he wished but I don't control them.
The risk of alienating my daughter and my beloved frandchildren is too much to ask .... ideas welcome and sorry for the depressed tone.

Posted by: FCF at April 01, 2016 12:15 AM (kejii)


I would suggest rescheduling for when your daughter can be there. I suspect your son would not mind the delay if he loved his sister.



Was your ex estranged from your son? That might be the cause of your daughter's pique. She might feel that if they couldn't make an effort to be in your son's life before his death, they shouldn't get the right to be around when people who actually loved him get to say goodbye.

Tell the truth, and tell it simply and plainly.  Trying to be too artful about it, or too clever will only cause more pain.  Tell her why it needs to be done, tell her that you're not snubbing her and that there's nobody else.



And perhaps offer to go with her to the place where the ashes are dispersed later, when she is available, to lay a wreath or place a memorial marker so she can say goodbye.

223 Broseidon, no its not the best out there. But I am curious to see where it goes.

Frankly back in 1992 Studio Tron released Compiler about the 2D world wanting to conquer the 3D world so it sent two programs out to do that - Compiler and Assembler.  And of course, each of them could power up by inserting in the back of their necks special data discs.

Yes Kikuchi was massively influenced by the original Tron movie for this series though it does turn comedic because the programs are young women who find out they like the 3D world.

I have been charged with scattering ashes of departed family members before (with everyone in friendly accordance, no conflicts, no bad blood).

As I did so, I was startled to realize that "cremains" are essentially indistinguishable from what is found at the bottom of any hearth or firepit or wood barbecue.

If I had to keep everybody happy in terms of ash distribution, I might end up stretching the ashes a bit, with discreet additions. Some here, some there.

262 "James Brown has a lengthy criminal back to at least 2001, including three counts of attempted murder"

The musical James Brown, the "Hardest Working Man In Show Business" James Brown, at one point in later life, had been reduced to where his one-man record label was in a strip mall office building with a single shared bathroom.

There was some sort of goofy cosmic-muffin human-potential seminar being held in one of the connected offices, and the Godfather Of Soul took offense to the seminar participants using HIS restroom, and marched in to the middle of the proceedings with a loaded .357 revolver, and took them all hostage for a couple of hours while he ranted about the injustice and indignity of it all.

I have no use for that sort of silly nonsense, but wouldn't it have been worth the price of admission to spend years afterwards relating the story of once having been held at gunpoint by *the* James Brown?

I love history and wanted to be an archeologist when I was a kid (funny thing, though, I have never seen an Indiana Jones movie!) I am actually considering doing a vacation trip someday to be an archeology intern at Montpelier, Madison's home in VA. And to the horde .... Thank you for being normal people. I have taken up a bad habit, which is wading into arguments with liberal women online (I am a woman, biologically, anyway, but i'm starting to question my gender identity after reading their ridiculous arguments... without starting a flame war here, I've read enough "hands off my body" and "what about the millions of incest victims" strawman arguments to last me a lifetime). I do what I can to change their minds, then despair for the future of our country, then come back here and realize that we aren't nearly as f*cked as I think we are.

It may take Harvard a while - $32 Billion

I made a simple proposal last night. Let's just cut off all grants to any school/student at schools with a Foundation/Endowment worth more than $100k per enrolled student. They simply do not need it. Harvard has ~4500 students, that's over $7,111,111 per student

Well, I was refering to people making donations.  I imagine most donors want their money to go to a specific college/university and will stop donating once they know that it will go elsewhere.

All of the government's economic numbers are so heavily manipulated that they're basically worthless, we've been in a Depression since the Housing Bubble broke.  There is no such thing as a recession that lasts more than 6 months, and recessions do not end until you recover to pre-recession levels.  This has not happened.

What fun!

There is a backup system of sorts. You can board a plane with a U.S. passport. Or you can also now get a "passport card" for a few additional bucks. Either as part of a first-time passport application, or piggybacking on top of an existing issued passport.

It has the same form factor as a credit card or driver's license. You can't get through most international checkpoints with a passport card, but it will suffice at any domestic Stateside airport.

So for someone who travels a lot, having one of those stashed separately from one's wallet or purse can be a huge help in such tough situations.

327 "Viking type invaders." Kind of, sort of, except everybody's in the wrong place, and the Vikes we'd recognize first come down almost 2000 years after this happened. It's really early -- right around the same time the Greeks (Hellenes I mean, because Greeks we'd recognize were just starting to show up) went over to Troy. It's not surprising there's no "history book," since almost nobody was using written language then. We only know about the Troy story because it was chanted and sung for several hundred years, then somebody took notes.

There are DNA types from all to hell over in those graves. Nobody lived, or came from, where we think of them being in later times. Now, a bunch of archies will embarrass themselves by importing modern notions onto what they think they are seeing, same as they've always done, and there will then be a whole generation of revisionism, that will go too far the other way. "Science."

The real point of the story is that the German state history club is out of grant money, and that's when you publish the papers you've got so far. I want to find out more, but I'd just as soon the UN doesn't step in and Culture it all up.

Devastating? LOL!!! I don't think we will miss a bunch of Northeast Yankees round these parts. 'Course, we do have a place just for them. Cary. Containment Area for Relocated Yankees.



But in all seriousness, to answer your question...oh the outcry from the local outrage lefties...sweet sweet outrage...why, you know Gov. Pat McCrory has been threatened with the dire outcomes of being voted out of office no less than three times by my count, and that's just by monitoring the folks I know on the book of faces, and all he did was sign the bill.


Which brings me to the next point...if you want to make a statement vote for the executive branch (President, Governor, etc), but if you want to make a DIFFERENCE vote for the legislature. Pay attention to your Congresscritter and Senator folks, they make the rules.

The same thing is the only reason we know the story of Beowulf - because some early Christian monk thought it an interesting enough tale of heroism and virtue to record and adapt to Christianity from its earlier roots.

332 318 I suspect most battles are forgotten or not in history books. Posted by: Bruce With a Wang! at April 01, 2016 01:36 AM (iQIUe) I suspect you are correct. I further suspect the pointy head academia nuts who postulated such a position need to have their brain housing groups re-aligned to the local reality. From what I gather from mentions, there was a 600-year-old causeway/bridge there -- and, given the times, dollars'll get you donuts that it was a toll bridge. Toll bridges have a nasty habit of turning from pleasant convenience to existential threat quite rapidly (as in, the northern bridge to a town when attacked from the south). Posted by: cthulhu at April 01, 2016 01:37 AM (EzgxV) I don't know how rapidly, given the statement in the article that many groups from far flung areas came to join in the battle. That's why I'm thinking they were banding together to repel foreign invaders (AKA, The Others). Howya been Cooth, ltns (my fault, I haven't been regular on the old ONT since I took up with the lovely Mrs Hades).

333 When I first came to America, I worked for a Greek guy in Asbury Park, NJ. During the summer months, his hotel was overrun by Greeks from Canada, come south to enjoy some sun and avoid rickets. When they head I was Irish, they were all happy to inform me that bronze-age Greeks exiled all their criminals to Ireland. I get where Australians are coming from.

334 Some idiot in Sacramento (yes that doesn't narrow it down very much) said something about banning CA state employee travel to somewhere for a similar, idiotic "reason". To which all 437 remaining functionally responsible citizen Californians responded, in their carefully concealed thoughts, "hmm, sounds good, WTF are our 'employees' doing traveling out of state on business anyway?". I actually think the remaining American states should engage in similar grandstanding, with lots of mockery and sarcasm, by boycotting states that trample the constitution (NJ, NY, CA, IL - 2nd amendment), or have "sanctuary" cities. It might not help, but it cannot hurt, to have the unhinged authoritarian alien freakshow that is half the country mocked and belittled, publicly.

335 I'll buy the idea that Beowulf was composed as a chanted poem, but it didn't go all that long before being written down. Keep in mind, Some Guy was still writing in the same language and poesy when Chaucer was writing things we can read.

Generally though, yes it was rare for any thing to get written down, except bills of lading and trade regulations. Oh, and Cicero's "defense of orphan" briefs. I imagine that to your typical working musician or tale-teller, writing it down just spoiled it. Not unlike these times, in a way.

FCF... people are not rational when it comes to the death of loved ones. I would put plans off til your daughter can be with you when you carry out your son's wishes. Perhaps by then, she will be past some of the grief and all of the baby hormones. THEN you can talk to her about why you want to include extended family.



Please do not do anything in haste that will cause hard feelings with your remaining child... hurts caused after the death of a loved one fade exceedingly slowly if at all and I am very sure your son would not want that for you or her.

There seems to have been a lot of travel and trade going on in prehistoric times.

346 Until two weeks ago when they found some new old DNA, it was generally held that the gingers weren't even in Ireland yet when all this went down. Could have been stout. I sincerely doubt it was whisky.

In a way, the Trojans were repelling Viking invaders. Then somebody overran Greece from the north, and, dark age. Lot of viking going on in those days.

It was probably climate change. Fertility went up, excess population, and all of a sudden people were on the move.

Also just watched the first episode of the new season of Archer. Having been completely drummed out of the freelance spy business, they're now making a go as Los Angeles private investigators. Maybe it's just me but I'm not feeling it anymore. Everything has gotten a bit too predictable in the characters' eccentricities and interactions. The last season ended rather in a way I found unsatisfying because Kreiger went nuts and created a disaster, yet nobody seemed to think this was a problem and they should all remain together.

Still have the last two episodes of Venture Bros. to watch. It has been so good up through #6 I'm almost afraid to watch them. Either they'll fail to find a good way to wrap up the arc or it will be really good and I'll go into withdrawals for lack of anything good to take its place.

This from a gender studies professor.

I have a family member who fundraised for a school mentioned the article. There's a group of their alumni who work on Wall Street, and when one of their school's graduates makes it big on Wall Street, they'll meet with him or her and tell them, "You've made it! You now have more money than you could ever spend. Why don't you give back our school like we did..."

Good Morning Morons.  Today is Friday, April 01, 2016.  On this day in 1970 left wing Republican President Richard Nixon signed the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act into law, requiring the Surgeon General's warnings on tobacco products and banning cigarette advertising on television and radio in the United States, starting on January 1, 1971.  This act passed by a Democrat Congress was, and still is, blatantly unconstitutional and like all Fascist laws passed in this time frame it has grown into far more mischief both in the tobacco area and branched out into other Fascist government control even to the point now where the federal government controls your child's lunch in local schools.

Since Vic is posting the news, I'll chime in with the entertainment section.

 

One problem with Hollywood / theatre story collections (especially ones from the  1950s and '60s) is that, while the stories are good, many times names are left out, leaving you to guess who the raconteur is speaking of.   So in this story, you'll have to be content that the subject is, in the words of the author, "a Broadway producer who has a genius for feuding with six critics, eight stars and eleven authors and directors at the same time."*

 

It seems he was overseeing a new musical during  its Boston tryout, and decided one certain number was no good.  "Take it out," he ordered.  "It's awful."

 

The composer and lyricist disagreed.  "We think it's the funniest number in the show," they protested, and refused to slice the piece.

 

No dice.  The number was cut.  But the writers wouldn't leave the producer alone, each day pestering him to restore it.  Finally, in exasperation, the producer allowed them to leave the song in when the show moved to Philadelphia tryouts.  "I'm only doing this to shut you two up," he snarled.  "The audience won't laugh once."

 

But as it turned out, the audience did laugh.  In fact, they were literally rolling in the aisles.  In triumph, the writers rushed to the producer and demanded, "Do you hear the audience howling?"

 

The producer glared at the two for a moment, then snapped,   "They don't mean it."

 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

 

*I happen to think - but can't prove - it was David Merrick.

Remember since DC has exploded with out of State blue hell people mostly from the North in the suburbs and DC itself became 99.9% black VA has become a blue hell State itself.  It is now run by Democrats and it would not surprise me a bit if they tear it down.

478 for example "Heavy.com" who usually has "5 things you need to know" http://heavy.com/ Evidently doesn't think you need to know ANYTHING about the shooter. The media has always lied, this whole "conspiracy to coordinate lies" shit is new.

479 VA should pass a law that says everyone who works in DC must either live in DC or move to MD.  That would fix that problem.

480 474  You had to dig HARD... WWRT I think had the story the Richmond CBS local?

Not slagging you or your skills.

In essence they are actively suppressing this story and its details.

Had he been "John Smith from Smalltown Illinois" they'd be screaming it from the rooftops.

481 You think Terry McAuliff cares about Virginia history? All it takes is a squishy person in government. -- Nikki Haley sure didn't. And she's a lot more agreeable to my political senses than McAwful. I'd wager Robert E. Lee is coming down. It's just where we are as a country now.

482 That's it for today folks. And I finally broke down and turned on the AC this morning. The temps were not so bad at 76F but the humidity had gone above 70% and it was oppressive in here. Posted by: Vic We Have No Party Keep your eyes on that storm down in Georgia.. By the time it gets to my neck of the woods (Pa) it's still going to be powerful enough for trees to come down and power outages. Parts of Georgia are under tornado watch right now.

483 470 452 He was black, he has a long rap sheet, and they are memory holing the story b/c it is not helpful to the Donk's November chances. Posted by: sven10077 at April 01, 2016 07:15 AM (g8Hfr) I was 99% sure he was black. But searched other news accounts high and low and could find nothing that listed his name are any description. Even the local news stories had nothing. Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at April 01, 2016 07:23 AM (vvmPQ) WZ actually has a picture of him.

484 @461 Well look for organized crime and drug cartels to swoop into the void. Pay Day loans are not just something cooked up by the evil finance industry. There is a market demand for these types of financial instruments and arrangements they and the need for them are not suddenly going to vanish simply because Pharo wave his scepter. Economic illiterates, all of them.

486 475  You do not have to be a crime expert to know that this will result in an increase in sexual assault and other pervy things like exhibitionism (dude strips in the womens locker room at the local YMCA in front of little girls) and voyeurism (filming, sneaking in and catching girls/women in the shower.

The NC didn't say now laws against perverts going into women's bathrooms as the MFM and these Gaystapo assholes are saying. The law said that individual cities can't each make up their own law. At least that is what I got out of the initial reports on this law before the Gaystapo thugs started screaming.

487 481 Posted by: Vic We Have No Party at April 01, 2016 07:32 AM (vvmPQ) It was "WTVR" sorry getting the gears going... on stories like this I find the best thing to do is find the locals big 4 TV stations and then try to reverse engineer where the local story goes. Don't feel bad you do a great job, of the Richmond big 4 3 have memory holed the story without giving the shooter's data including Fox. In THIS case CBS was the one who told the truth.

488 Tank of the day. http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/ww2/gb/Infantry_Tank_Matilda_II.php This was a monster tank for its time. Heavily armored and could survive multiple hits from tank and anti tank armament of the day. About the only thing capable of knocking it out from any distance was a Flak 88. The Brits just didn't have enough of them in May 1940 to make a difference. For WWII Buffs here is one engagement that these tanks participated in other than the North African Theater. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Arras_%281940%29

495 We are a NoVA family - so far the school board in my county has kept to the regular Virginia Studies curriculum, at least in elementary/middle school. They certainly don't whitewash (no pun intended) the state's history, but at least they aren't being one sided about it. I'll say that I'm a Virginian By UHaul and when I made my home here I promised myself that if I had kids they'd grow up with a sense of pride and love for their home state, just as I have for mine. If the state is going to be an asshole about Robert E Lee, then I'll pick up the slack at home and make sure my kids have the true picture. And this is from a guy who was born and raised in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains.

498 @450 Well according to our local Ryan shill, Ryan is completely powerless to do anything. Hes simply being swept up in the currents he cannot control or stop. Oh yeah, when does Ryan's #yearofideas begin? The 1st qtr is nearly over and not so much as a sniff at an agenda from these assholes. The GOP is a fraudulent party and needs to be destroyed, Paul Ryan doubly so. The guy that's challenging him is really bright and articulate and gets it, he really gets it. I would recommend everyone read his American Thinker article. It's spot on. That is the battle that must be met and joined all of these CON-servative pukes must be driven from office.

501 'He had a lot of anger about the police in the past,' she said. 'He pretty much thought he wanted to be infamous... in terms of having a showdown.
