Overnight Open Thread (30 Aug 2013)
— CDR M

Obama's impotent 'sham across the bow'. Not only have the leaks weakened the value of any strike now, but telling your enemy that you're only going to launch a few missiles and then hit the links won't do any good. Top. Men.

This administration already has had a habit of spilling the classified beans for political gain, on drone "kill lists" and cyberwarfare against Iran for instance.

But in previewing his all-for-show mini-attack on Syria, Obama might as well be telegramming Hitler that there are these five beaches in Normandy where something interesting might happen at 6:30 a.m. on June 6.

Post-college SAT

I can already hear the calls of racism. 'Post-college SAT' aims to level the playing field in crowded job market.

That test, CLA+ (shorthand for Collegiate Learning Assessment), is designed with the dual knowledge that prospective employers are increasingly souring on GPA for evaluating college grads, and students who take Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) can develop competent job skills without ever earning a college degree.

Scored on a 1,600-point scale, the CLA+ “represents the latest threat to the fraying monopoly that traditional four-year colleges have enjoyed in defining what it means to be well educated,” the Wall Street Journal’s Douglas Belkin reported Sunday in the front-page article “Are You Ready for the Post-College SAT?”

Science!

Science has now validated the AoSHQ lifestyle. Again. Have a difficult problem to solve? Try vodka.

Unprecedented Heat

Unprecedented heat causes Poudre School District to close. 88 degrees. On August 30th. Unprecedented? I'm sure a three day weekend had nothing to do with this. Here's the school district website. They better cancel next Friday. It is forecast to be 90 degrees.

So far, she's had sex with 284 men, according to Fakt.pl and didn't let the fact she has a serious boyfriend stop her.

He told the Polish language website he was "not thrilled" with her unusual hobby, but had no choice and "had to come to terms" with it.


I have a solution: how about he dump her and find a respectable girl?  Or is that too patriarchal for our post-masculine world?

84 btw, how does that woman plan to sleep with that many men? Even if she only has one man a day, it would take her approximately 274 years to sleep with that number. Let's go even further and stipulate that she has 8 hours a day to spend sleeping with all these men. Accounting for the 20 minute "ride" she plans, it would still take her about 12 years to accomplish this goal. If she only does her decadence on weekends, the time needed rises considerably.

Yeah.  The first one was not up my alley.  It was really fun at times and the puzzle-solving was fun, but anything outside of a town was oddly boring to me.  I didn't like it and my buddies think I'm crazy.

I did like being chased, as an assassin, through the town when I blew a mission.  Finding a spot to jump from and hide was interesting.

That being said, I downloaded "Two" for free from MS.  Maybe I was too critical.

Posted by: Thrawn at August 30, 2013 10:40 PM (Dsds2) well, I am not sure if it is going to be as much a problem for her as her partners, but I am pretty sure her gear was not designed to work eight to twelve hours a day seven days a week. she is going to have some serious problems by the time she finishes. she could reduce our estimate of 12 years to six years or four depending.

97 btw, how does that woman plan to sleep with that many men? Even if she only has one man a day, it would take her approximately 274 years to sleep with that number. OK, good point. To make her goal, she has to double or triple up every day. With this in mind, I offer as a demand (not as a declarative statement): FIRST!

Their homework for the long weekend is a worksheet of various sentences, and they have to identify the part of speech of the bolded text. For instance: "The big, red ball bounced down the road." What part of speech is "bounced?" They complained.

Yeah. The first one was not up my alley. It was really fun at times and the puzzle-solving was fun, but anything outside of a town was oddly boring to me. I didn't like it and my buddies think I'm crazy.I did like being chased, as an assassin, through the town when I blew a mission. Finding a spot to jump from and hide was interesting.
That being said, I downloaded "Two" for free from MS. Maybe I was too critical.

A  new  trend  has  emerged  in  liberal  online  magazines:  Have  some  young  staff  writer  pen  an  article  so  silly and laden with progressive buzzwords and tropes that even their loyal prog readership mocks them in the comments. This  attracts  attention to the website. 

 

Slate has done this twice  that  I know of. The Atlantic has also. Their latest being two columns, one a continuation of the first wherein the writer tries desperately to explain what he meant in the first column.

 

 It's a double duty click magnet in the sense that it's about Miley Cyrus and also it's accusing both her and Janis Joplin of being racists. The  comments  in the second article are hilarious and running about 99% against the author.

 

Seems the left just can't resist parodying themselves.

Maybe.  Kind of depends on what other games you let him play.  You are sort of a good guy, though you kill people often bloodily and you are discouraged from killing innocents such that if you were to start you would be "killed" quickly.  It is violent and a little bloody, though not really gore bloody.

Biggest problem is that the Emperor does not have the same military power he started with.

 

They've changed doctrine, from large battle, to Insurgency ops...  and Strykers will SUCK against Tanks...

 

Yes.... we still have Tanks... but not the same skilled crews we had 10 years ago... and you go to War with the Army you have...

 

Navy is down to what.... 120 Surface Combat Ships?

 

Air Force Levels.... don't follow them... but not good as many squadrons are offline waiting for the F-35...

 

Add in already committed troops?

 

This is not the Bush 41 Military he was handed by Ronnie Raygun...

Yeah.  The "assassination scenes" are much more "cool" than they are graphic.  The character, (kid), has to think.  The problem-solving is good. 

You might want to "ban" him from the internet, so as not to allow him to cheat!... LOL..

The violence factor is there, but it is more "spectacular" than it is "graphic-how-to".

I didn't like it, (got bored),but many, many, many gamers do.  They're probably more correct than me.

Not a day goes by where I am not at least once muttering "the fuck?!" about some stupid bullshit thing or another.

 

And, FYI, today did not even get close to this horrific high temperature they were all so ascared of. I would call it a pleasant late summer day.

210 Assassin's Creed 1 sucks compared to 2 and Brotherhood. Much less "out of town" areas. It is really hard to go back and play any of that after trying the others and their much better pacing and mission variety. Posted by: buzzion Again, only played 1 and the reason why I dug it while it it still 'railed,' is that it set the standard for open environment movement within the local map. And, by that I would have to ask if you've played Thief. Yes it's old, and it was another standard setting game in some ways, but that one pissed me off in that you're supposed to be playing a MASTER THIEF! ...that can't manage to scale a 6' wall. wtf? Scarred forever, I swore off stealth games. #EmoBow AC blew that whole thing out of the water. Towers, castles, walls of all kinds. You're up and down those like a Robin Williams' joke that I never got.

There was one of the Quake series that was like that, I think. The earlier ones had led you to expect a nice alien shooting gallery.

Probably would be.  There is a bit of alternate history going on that the Ancient Alien guys see and probably go "See we told you we were right!"  You can always watch bits of it on youtube to see if its something you think he might like.

261 256 I could never start my car when it got below minus 20 or so. There was a stretch of weather we had up there where day time highs were in the minus teens. Wind chill was close to minus 60. I was outside in the driveway burning charcoal under my oil pan to warm up the engine. It worked. I remember stepping out of the house and your face immediately got hard like ice. throwing water in the air was cool too, it turned into snow immediately as it left the glass. Posted by: Truck Monkey, Gruntled New Business Owner at August 30, 2013 11:14 PM (jucos) Yup, everyone up there had block heaters they plugged in overnight. We went skiing one night, windchill on the lift was estimated at -30 to -40. My goatee froze through a ski mask.

270 I've had Deadspace 2 for eight months.  I've been waiting for a good sale before I played it because I HAVE to play the original Deadspace.

...first

I wouldn't play the second without the original.  It still costs more than the original.  The same goes for a few other games.  (Mass Effect... but, lol)  The original usually owns the trilogy, but I'm just being "anal".

Far-Cry 3 would be the first "out-of-order" game I've played, because the improvement was so big.

Beside $34.00 worth of gift-cards, I'll be getting four games for ten bucks or less.

One of those games could be:

-Deus Ex, H.R.
-Saints Row
-Prototype

...I've narrowed it down to those three games.

271 243 BTW a commenter just came in and in praising ace basically shit all over the commenters.You know which thread.

Wow. Real courage, to come say that in a dead thread.

I think the commenters here are wonderfully intelligent and witty, and that the banter here approaches masterpiece level at times. Mr "these are not the cool kids" has failed to understand what goes on here. My own opinion of The Thread, and the ones in the past that have resembled it, is that people here use Ace's posts, even the greatest ones, as a chance to do their usual banter, and, at times, Ace takes offense. That's understandable on both sides. He turns out a masterpiece and commenters are riffing about how much modern music sucks, and he naturally feels underappreciated. But the reality is that we're used to his awesomeness, and no one wants to be a suck up, so no one tells him how awesome he is. But most of us know it, and see it.

274 Is the Assassin's Creed set in the Revolutionary War any good? It looks fantastic but I am not a big gamer; if I got it would probably take me 1000 years to get it completed. I love history tho, it intrigued me. Posted by: LizLem/i] That's the Third in the Series ( one of our AoSHQ commenters worked on it but I haven't seen him in a while ) and I haven't played it. I'm a cheapskate that waits for things to go on sale on Steam, but I looks quite good. Gameplay wise, It's hard to say. I'm not the most coordinated or 'uber' of FPS players (aka I suck at the shooter games but I like them) so it's hard to tell you what your experience would be like. The first one didn't seem to be unenjoyable for those that aren't hardcore gamers. Though the plot-involved battles are quiet heady. Took me a few tries to get through those. History-wise, of course it's a truncated mess, the 1st one that is. It's like any historical mini-series; much eye-candy but not worth critiquing beyond that.

LizLem.  Assassin's Creed 3 is ok.  The storyline is ok.  The combat system is excellent especially when you go with the tomahawk.  Its really cool that when the soldiers line up from a distance to make a musket shot and you grab the closest bad guy for a human shield.  The ship combat is very cool.

 

The character of Connor sucks.  He is bland and they eventually have him become disillisioned with the Revolutionary cause.  I think there overall portrayals of the Patriots though was pretty good.

Annoying controls Posted by: Merovign I'll resist the urge to point out that playing console FPS games is like trying to ride your family dog. psuedo-science (evil Christians, genetic memory). Unskippable scenes, menus were annoying. Evil Xtians? It's not explicitly anti catholic, did you even play until the end? Whole big-ass shot at a religion not named Christianity. F, dude, Jews would have a better claim at the grief. Kind of like Witcher. Man, I *really* wanted to like that game. Realized the interface was worse than the enemies in the game. Posted by: Merovign, Ah, Witcher, eurogank. No sympathies there.

365 Tell you what pissed me off. One year the kid qualified for two Advanced camps, one in Hawaii and one in Grand Rapids MN. I hate high heat, so Other Parent drew the Hawaii straw and I volunteered for the Minnesota leg. I got a lot of credit for that, all the while chuckling up my sleeve. In August, it was just as 95 and humid in the northwoods as it was at home. I had to have my linen suit re-pressed twice.

Really nice place, though. Loggers' roleo, and a winter biathlon course.

For a while after Bethlehem works shut down, it looked like Buffalo's snow load was decreasing. People joked bitterly over whether it was the sudden lack of steam or the sudden lack of people that changed the climate. But in a decade it was back to normal.

Back around 1948 there was a tsunami in Conneaut. Youse can look it up.

To "constantly" explain to others, your version of the rules, as "passed" by any given League, and as verified by its members?

1942 - Two seiche-related waves unexpectedly batter the Ohio shore between Bay Village and Conneaut. Madison-on-the-Lake receives the brunt of the waves. The first wave ranges between 4 and 20 feet, and the second, following 15 minutes later, is 6 to 8 feet high. The phenomenon kills seven people.

You know, magazine feature writers really suck. This is like the "Healthiest Cities" surveys done by Men's Health, that measures stuff like how tough the bar smoking enforcement is and how many taverns have been driven out of business.

I was taught in grade school that northern Ohio was immune to earthquakes. Why, the bedrock was all the wrong kind, nothing to worry about. When we had a Richter 3-4, it was epicentered under the physics department of the high school, strangely fitting. The next one knocked down the stone sign outside my office building. Never believe nothing nobody tells you.

I also almost got the job of cabin boy on the Edmund Fitzgerald, but that's a sea tale for another time.

Good or bad, whether you like it or not, it's out there. It's not going away, even if you think it's "filth". So he engages and makes fun of it, teases it out, sorta, and some people just can't get it and wonder why he's "not talking about Syria!!". Everybody is talking about it. What more can be said about OBAMA, etc., etc.,? It's Friday, he's trying to have some fun, and some people say "This is bullshit".

Out comes a 90% Winchester Model 61. He recalled that his dad had bought it at a pawn shop for $35. I should have pulled the serial number.

I'd not my major objection to them is they're horribly cost inefficient.  But I don't want to ban them, I just mock everyone who buys one.

Even if I waste 1/cup of coffee per day (by making 6 instead of 5) every day, all year (which is unlikely really.) I still probably save 50% of what a Keurig would cost me over the same period of time.

It's the whole HBO Girls thing again. Remember how he insisted that everybody just hadda pay attention to that series because it was important stuff and we needed to "engage" women and tweens or something. While simultaneously insisting he didn't watch the show himself.

Also had a rusty Volvo, and several rusty but trusty Datsuns and Mazdas and Toyotas.

514 Oh, and Crank -- I completely agree that EMTALA is horrible....but the problem is that when you say, "my profession", you get all of it.




I'm a CPA, and that profession has gone into so many scams, schemes, navel-gazings, counting angels-on-pinheads gyrations over the last 10-15 years that I'm almost ashamed to admit it -- mainly, as you may have guessed, because of governmental interference. The whole "Arthur Andersen must die because we need a scalp for Enron" thing.




Now, I get that there are a lot of good people in medicine -- just as there are a lot of good people in accounting and auditing -- but the overall culture of both professions is....well, as George Bernard Shaw famously put it: "All professions are conspiracies against the laity."

It's not just undercoat. Body design plays a huge role, as does quality of metal used. Poorly-applied, or poor quality undercoat can partially peel, and form pockets that trap salt-laden mud against the metal, and actually promote rust.

Yes, and right up until then you could sit in a dark garage and listen to them rust.
And that includes the golden era of their invincibility.

Nobody under 50 knows what they're talking about with rust jokes. Every damned car in the world rusted out from under you, if you parked outside and didn't wash the underbody every time it went out in winter. Every one. Benz, Porsche, Rolls. You cannot establish the engineering (or moral!) superiority of Chosen Marque by boasting of its rust resistance, because nobody had any. You just chose where.

My 1963 Studebaker does not have a speck of body rust, and never has had.

cthulhu, I wasn't sure anyone had even seen my final meltdown on last night's ONT since it was really, really dead by then.  But it felt like Bitter clinger and Mero were going out of their way to spit in my face personally.  Having talked with Mero in the past, I understand his bitterness towards medicine in general, and after a suitable cool-down period I'm no longer ready to give him the full Cheney.  It sounds like Bitter clinger has also had some issues in the past, but I'm ignorant of them.

 

You won't catch me saying physicians are sainted, but it feels like as a group we get dragged through the mud more than warranted.  And really, I've never identified CPAs as a group to be problems, I always just figured that the bad apples were the exception.  I do have a disproportionate dislike of lawyers in general on both a professional and personal level, but aside from a good lawyer joke, I'm not going to start painting good morons like AtC with a broad brush.

Classic failure mode - stuck key auto-repeating.  If you want to salvage it rather than get another, you can take the whole thing apart (pry keys off, etc) and wash it with some dish soap.  Rinse completely, set the parts out in the sun to dry completely.

Unless it got something like a built in speaker with paper cone, most electronics can be washed/pleaned conventionally.  I used to put filthy motherboards in the dishwasher.

Not entirely true -- there's a natural limit to the size of most financial fraud. Now, when you get to pension plans....the whole idea is that you're going to have 100,000 "Joe Worker" guys putting $100 a month into a plan for 30 years, then getting some nice benefit when they retire. If you ask 'em how much it should cost for an auditor to verify everything is ok, they'll probably say something like "$100K/year" -- 1% of what they kicked in.



But after 10 years, that pension plan has $100M in it, and crooks can get awfully creative when there's that kind of loot just lying there....

545 They Would Rather the Poor be Poorer Alabama is having a new scholarship tax credit program challenged by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) because it doesn’t help every single child. It would provide $3500 per student in a failing public school. Not every child will benefit by this, but many will. That that is the very reason why Progressive organizations such as the SPLC oppose it: If you can’t help all kids, then you shouldn’t be able to help any kids. It strikes at the root of what the Progressive left considers “justice.” More: http://politicalhat.com/?p=3078

And the more I think back over the last almost four years the worse it gets. And while I appreciate the time you took to talk to me, let's face it, it basically came down to coming up with a hypothesis that's hard to test for and probably impossible to treat. That's been damned near everything my *whole life*, not just the last few years. Mind you, it was more than I paid for, so thanks. But seriously, I don't think I've ever had a doctor spend more than half an hour on an issue in one go. Even the good ones. Ever. If it's not a known issue you will *never* get anywhere that way. My current medical group has become really bad at not checking my records and asking the same thing over and over or prescribing things that shouldn't be prescribed because of my condition, or referring me to someone who blushes and says they're the wrong person and can't help. And the other hospital in the area has a worse reputation. These are not isolated incidents and it's not just me. Part of the "standard model" is broken.

Luckily they're old enough to probably (I hope) not have to face the death panels after our dear leader's "affordable" "healthcare" "plan" is fully implemented.

 

TY Kalneva,

my thoughts also on our own personal medical issues at middle age.  We've had a few, too many actually lately for being in your 50s. but I'm glad to get hip replacement, back surgery, gall bladder etc. done before Obamacare.

 

I truly believe if my mother needed surgery like she had this week, in a few years she would simply be denied.  She has heart damage from an attack 10 years ago, kidney failure as a result and more.  Obamacare would deem her too expensive to treat.  She would be consigned to die.

TY for your prayers.

The problem is that the profession of medicine -- like the profession of accountancy and the profession of law -- is not the same as being a good doctor, or accountant or lawyer. In all of these, actually being the professional is applying training, aptitude, talent, and skill to a problem at hand and being proud of your work.....while the profession also includes licensing boards, governments, payers, grifters, and flakes that keep milking a medieval guild system built on generating privilege for the profession and enhancing cash flow.



I don't think that Mero or Bitterclinger were targeting you, personally, in any way. But the profession you're in just took a hard lurch toward cronyism and there's a lot of evidence that it was already pretty badly tainted.



And, speaking of taint, why hasn't anyone GOMER'd some clown and claimed EMTALA was unconstitutional under the 13th Amendment: "Neither slavery ***nor involuntary servitude***, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."?

cthulhu, in all seriousness, the Roberts court would call the EMTALA fines a tax and use some judicial Jedi mind tricks to claim it comports with the Commerce clause, or some other such bullsh*t.  The 13th Amendment argument is a very good one for debunking the idea of health care as a right (I swear one of the cobs had a great piece on this last year, or maybe it was a sidebar link), but I doubt any bench in the country has enough cumulative cojones to issue a verdict that would overturn EMTALA.

 

Mero, I'm a sympathetic ear but not the best resource for you--because frankly, as an ER doc, my job is to triage you into "this will kill you now/soon" or "not so much", fix things that can be easily treated, and refer you back to your primary or to a specialist for my best guess as to what your ailment is based on what I can gather from a brief interaction and a limited panel of tests.  The Lyme thing I know about more from a couple unfortunate individuals who had it undiagnosed for some time rather than extensive professional exposure--and so I would have referred you on to a cardiac specialist for your CHF, etiology uknown.  Clearly the cardiac specialists have not beena able to come up with a satisfactory plan to date.  My knowledge base is very broad but limited in depth when it comes to treating underlying diseases, as my goal is to stabilize you and that by nature is more symptom-driven.  Get the fluid off your lungs that's drowning you is right up my alley.  Fixing the underlying cardiomyopathy that's causing the edema?  Sure, I know about digoxin, beta blockers, etc., but I'm not going to be so good at titrating them to the right dose to maximize function while minimizing side effects, and I definitely won't be doing any open-heart surgery.

 

Anyway, I'm happy to spitball ideas with you, but frankly if there were a diagnosis or treatment for you that is something I can pick up, surely one of those 9 or so cardiologists should have found it long before me.  Hopefully the UCD guys will be more thorough and figure this out for you.

I don't think they had a choice. NDS development has slowed to a trickle and retailers don't want to give much shelf space to the hardware and accessories any longer. The existing software they'll reduce more slowly, treating it as the low end of 3DS software. So they needed something at a more entry level price to keep the retail channel happy.

608 I spent most of my time in the few years before it all went to Hell as Level 3 tech support. It will vary form company to company but for me the chart was L1, L2, L3, Specialist. The specialists were the server guys or the application guys. Level 1 is triage and fixing obvious stuff. Level 2 is stuff Level 1 can't reasonably cope with because of skills or time. Level 3 is the same for Level 2. The cool thing about Level 3 is time. Depending on the job, I could have projects that take ten minutes or ten hours or ten days. It was just what was needed. There was one terrifying one that took months of spare time, really only like 30 hours. The point is that some things just can never be dealt with in the time frame group doctors deal with, and there's no one to kick it upstairs to. Even the specialists in medicine often act like level 1 tech support (obviously the specifics are light-years different). I sent a 7-page *summary* and some tests to the new docs. Hope they like puzzles, otherwise I'm wasting my time. I never get the cool conditions that get all the research money and time.

In Palm Beach county it is.  My tax bill each year has an allocation for the PB "medical district", which basically helps pay for all those ER freebies handed out in the county.

624 When I stuck a rusty nail through my foot about 10 years ago up in NY, I called around to all the walk-in clinics and local doctors looking for a tetanus shot.

No-go.  Not available.  In its infinite wisdom, the state of NY had decided all tetanus vaccine would ONLY be allocated to area hospitals, so I was forced into an ER trip.

So a fucking $30 tetanus shot in FL cost me $390 at the emergency room in NY, and I was "treated" for less than 5 minutes and it was only a med tech, not a MD.

We gotta get government out of shit like vaccine allocation.  There's no reason tetanus shots can't be given at a low-cost walk-in

Depends which chains you look at. Best Buy tends to be one of the last big chains to drop a platform if it can still be regarded as alive. But in general, the market was ripe for the 3DS platform to hit a lower price point and they couldn't do it with the complete feature set. Since so many people were iffy on the 3D and that was a significant cost factor whose absence wouldn't affect any software, it got the boot.

I suspect the single screen may be another cost savings. A lot of panels that wouldn't pass testing because of bid pixels in the right location are still suitable for use in the 2DS. If this gave Sharp a way to avoid tossing a lot of panels, then they probably gave Nintendo a good break on the price.

The point is who you happen to be cared by. You are a fucking Horse if the one looking at you is a Horse Doctor. If the Doc has never seen it they have never seen it and magic doesn't happen in the ER any more than it does at the local auto repair shop. You can be happy someone was there that had experience with your 10% problem but 90% of them will not diagnose in the ER your problem. If you are all knowing in your job more power to you.

Think we've below the critical mass to really give it life.   There's a split between PC and console gamers, and then even for the people using the same platforms, we don't necessarily play the same games.  

Flip a coin for interest on a specific game, and if we stick to general topics - what's there to talk about?   I like this, you like that, but I really really hate this?

683 I think, for example, on the *old* volvos - I vaguely recall the 164 - it was a nightmare. Then again the BMW, Volvo and Mazda had ports to access the fuel pump on top of the tank. A friend had a GM and you had to remove the tank even though the space above the pump was a flat panel and not structural.

As a fellow moron, I'd hate to tweak you so hard that you felt personally wronged -- and my "Individually, I love you all with affection unspeakable; but, collectively, I look upon you with a disgust that amounts to absolute detestation. Oh! pity me, my beloved friends, for such is my sense of duty that, once out of my indentures, I shall feel myself bound to devote myself heart and soul to your extermination!"

717 I've always preferred to leave it to the skilled operators and admire the work from a distance outside the splatter zone.

An odd bit of my brain, when presented with some kinds of scenarios, becomes fixated on the worst case. I can't abide sitting in a theater balcony because that warped part of my brain cannot stop obsessing with what it would be like to jump. As a result, I long ago decided it would be best to not take up operating some types of machinery.

Therein lies a setup for a SF/horror story. Regenerative medicine becomes highly refined and relatively cheap. Extreme fetishists take to inflicting horrific injuries on themselves, just to partake of the experience. Somewhat like the rationale of the Cenobites in Hellraiser, whose purpose is to deliver extremes of sensation with no distinction between pleasure and pain.
