Overnight Open Thread (30 March 2013)
— CDR M

Next to last day of March. Hopefully it feels like Spring in April. I'm told the above image is early concept work done for Prometheus 2.

The election is over, now feel the pain of an EPA plan that has been ready for 15 months. New EPA rules to add 9 cents a gallon to cost of gas. Of course, these same idiots will keep voting the way they do no matter how painful the party they support makes it for them.

Tornado Season

Tis the season, so be ready if you live in tornado prone areas. Don't be alarmed at the above photo. That's just all the recorded tracks of tornadoes since 1950.

Cooking With Peeps

Hmmmm. I've never tried cooking with peeps. I wonder if it is any good. Might have to conduct some experiments tomorrow.

And if you are tired of the biting, cheap taste of val-u-rite vodka, you can always try peep infused vodka.

Pole Dancing Reality Show

Nope, not here but I'll probably tune in if it comes here. In the Ukraine, Pole Dancing Meets American Idol.

April Fools Day Pranks

Some ideas for the horde.

Beating A Speeding Ticket

Now the article says he used math to beat the ticket but it sounds like he won because the officer was not trained to use the equipment. Regardless, file it away for when you do get a speeding ticket.

AGW Scientists Puzzled

Sounds like AGW scientists are now afflicted with the same problem that plagues "journalists" that cover financial news. You know, the stuff that happens that the rest of us in the real world can see coming a mile away that surprises the "experts". Twenty year hiatus in rising temperatures has scientists puzzled. Hopefully, this means the climate change endgame is in sight.

19 Regarding feline behavior generalizable across species within the genus, working every time I've tried it: keep your fore paws clasped in the small of your back. Take your glasses off, if you wear any. Make eye-contact, and blink slowly. Do your best to purr. Loudly and lasciviously. (There's a wide variation in feline purrs, and there seems to be a very broad acceptance of "purr".) Do this, and you won't get the threat response. Next question?

23 Easter bunny rant : Did you know that Cadbury chocolate is halal? Which is a bummer cuz I really liked it until now. Cadbury does not need to ritually slit the throats of any animals to make chocolate. They pay for this special designation they do not need as a jizya. IMHO. Happy Easter

They put up six of those ugly behemoths not 5 miles from here, over six months ago. They have yet to turn them to the on position--I've seen them test a couple of them but that's it. They sit there, doing nothing but ruining the view.


I'm sure the federal dollars were too sweet to pass up, but it might be nice if they actually because useful. Meanwhile, I'm wondering if a shotgun could shoot high enough, or if I would need to use the rifle to fix them for good.

The EPA adding   "9 cents" a gallon to the price of gas is nothing.

 

The IMF wants to impose a tax on gas in the US by an additional $1.40/ gallon, to fix "climate change".

 

Somebody should get a good rap on the back of the head for that one.

87 The back is slowly getting better.  Last week the PT said my range of motion was improving and she was seeing improvement overall.  After we were done with the exercises she put me on the treadmill for 10 minutes.  Three weeks ago I couldn't have done that.  I still have pain but it's not nearly as bad as it was.  She cleared me to go ahead and start my morning walks again.  Not the usual mile and half.. start out slow.  But I'm finally encouraged and feeling optimistic.

102 87 The back is slowly getting better. Last week the PT said my range of motion was improving and she was seeing improvement overall. After we were done with the exercises she put me on the treadmill for 10 minutes. Three weeks ago I couldn't have done that. I still have pain but it's not nearly as bad as it was. She cleared me to go ahead and start my morning walks again. Not the usual mile and half.. start out slow. But I'm finally encouraged and feeling optimistic.

WE'RE RIGHT!

Reading the adulation in some quarters laid on Stalin in the  '30's is sickening, knowing FOR A FACT what we now know about the mass starvations (on purpose) to compell collective farming.  Which also never worked.

 

And the millions that were killed in China to fulfill Mao's collectivist drive.

I will give a rat's ass of credibility to those clowns when they show me a model of the earth and its climate that shows ice age cycles over multiple 100k year cycles without spinning off into an asymptote. MAYBE then they can claim to understand the underlying physics.

Everything I have seen, no matter how deep into the weeds one gets, is a bunch of hacked together averages which somehow represent the average planetary temperature on a yearly basis (which don't mean jack) and they project from there... not really showing much more than middle school math with millions of $$ behind it.

Sorry to the AGW believers, but a point two, or was a two degree average temp change in fifty years don't mean jack when your local climate may have a typical daily swing of 20 degrees, a yearly swing of 70 degrees and a swing of 150 degrees in a mere 50 years.

My sister Mary told me I should share this with you fine folks. My name is Larry Cloggenstein.  I am from Battleboro, VT.

 

Yesterday I visited our Sprouts grocery store. The cashier was a happy woman, all positive about her job.  High on Sprouts, if you will.
But when I asked, "Do you make $20 an hour?" her countenance darkened.  "Didn't mean to bring you down," I said.  "Seven dollars an hour is okay if you like your job, right?"

 

Capitalism still persists as a nasty undertow in America, promoting greed and setting up a hierarchy of social value that doesn't work for the common good. The happy lady pushing buttons at Sprouts should be compensated in a way that makes her life as easy as the life of the guy who owns Sprouts. His labor hours are no more valuable than hers.

 

Did his ancestor do more than hers to build this nation? Does he do more than she does to contribute to the success of this nation? When labor becomes a mere commodity, greedy people steal and horde it. And once the labor of others ends up in the wrong hands, those hands use it with cavalier disregard for the person to whom that labor belongs.

 

The smile on the Sprouts cashier's face is just as important to the success of Sprouts as those of the tax attoenrys whose job it is to find loopholes that allow the corporation to screw the IRS.

 

The minimum wage should be around $20--about what it was in 1968--or more.  America will be a broken country as long as this half-century trend toward lower wages for working people continues.

 

I say, in the ideal society that we share the collective fruits of our current and historical labor, and we play alot.

 

The next time I go to Sprouts and ask the cashier, "Do you make $20 per hour?" I want to hear, "Nope, $25, plus a bonus for my smile."

I didn't even have time to brake.. the stupid thing went under my car (our beautiful Lincoln.. used but it was pimped out.. beautiful).. anyway.. the stupid thing goes under the car and I come to a screeching halt with this fucking mattress under my car.  The idiot, of course, just kept going.

I'm not saying your right and I'm not saying your wrong. I was adopted in a way that shouldn't be legal. I was adopted by a mom and a dad that I suppose did their best and had good intentions but left me as an adult  feeling somewhat "lost" I don't think a homosexual couple would have been any better but looking back I will say love and understanding would have made a huge difference regardless of the sex of the parents. FTR I don't believe in homosexuality or marriage of it.  Just my point of view on children and parents

Jewel45, That wasn't the end of my day.  I had a balloon glow that didn't work out for a friends charity, long story.  Anyway after doing a burner glow I turned off my pilot light and but the blast valve in my burner bag.  I went back to vent my lines but the valve hadn't shut off the pilot light.  I caught a blast of fire in the face. The left side of my face was slightly burnt from the hot antifreeze bath it took from the wreck a few hours earlier and now the right side caught the brunt of the heat and burned slightly.  It feels like a bit of a sunburn.  I could taste of the antifreeze on my face, the smell of fire extinguisher dust and the smell of my burnt nose hair, eyelashes, eyebrow and hair.  At that point I figured it was time to go home and take a shower.

My brother sister and I had to ride in back to town which was 40 miles to get groceries. We also lived on the reservation so us kids in the back would hope that dad would pull over for a native hitchhiker. That meant that one of us got to go up front because dad got nervous with 4 in the back....................................how I ever made it to my age amazes me.

232 Yep, the pickup was on the shoulder.  As I said before, it was weird.  The guy in the car a good 150 feet or more just drifted to the right onto the shoulder.  My first thought was that he was pulling over to help.  Then I thought he was coming awful fast.  Then I realized he didn't have time to stop.  Afterwards I realized, he didn't TRY to stop.  I think the guy was having a seizure, stroke ore something before the incident occured.  Just weird  set of events all the way around.

The Tehachapi wind farm is massive, it's amazing how many times I've driven through the area and seen maybe only a third of them running. I will give them this, it's a great place to have a wind farm all the trees in East Kern (if any) are bent in one direction.

I've been in straight commission for about 25 years, and about 10 years ago I took out life insurance policies on both the boys, because I knew if anything ever happened to them, I would be wiped out, at least for a while and unable to earn.

Much later my oldest turned 17, and I nearly decided to do him in, myself.

I lost a cousin to a dirtbike incident involving a truck when I was ~7...

it totally destroyed my uncle....

blew apart his marriage, he never recovered and never had another.....

when wife went to 'ghani on her first combat tour I did a self-assessment and doubled my life insurance and told my foster brother and son's Godfather he'd have to take custody if I ever got the knock.

I'd have to go stare at a tree and pray for a long long time....

it would only be worse if God forbid we lost boy.

Years and years ago, my parents had "projects" where they needed to maintain two households -- my mom was going for a PhD in Davis, and my dad was working at the City of Los Angeles. So, one night, we're using my dad's Datsun mini-pickup to haul a desk from LA to Davis. Because the bed was so small, the desk actually straddled the bed, with it's legs on the outside edge of the bed. It was thoroughly lashed in (we weren't trick-knot sailors, so we'd wrap the thing in rope like a cocoon and use the two knots we knew a lot).



So, we're rocketing up I-5 at about 75 mph and there's straining sounds in the back, so I peer around the crap obstructing the view.....and that freakin' desk is kiting along, straining at the ropes, floating in air about 8" off the edge of the bed.



It was, BTW, a city-salvage desk -- very institutional and weighed like the dickens. And it was quite clearly unsupported by anything but air and was straining for the freedom to smash itself on the highway. Impressed the crap out of me.

293 Funny example of stupid. Deadspin published an NFL fan map of Facebook likes. Showed a lot of Cowboys fans in the South. Like southwest Virginia. Deadspin writes a whole article on why, why so many Cowboys fans in the South, outside of Texas. Their reason? In the 1950s the Redskins were racist and the last team to integrate black players. So black fans turned on the Redksins and support the Cowboys. Makes sense, right? Well, unless you know anything about southwest fucking Virginia. It's fucking Appalachia. There aren't any black people. Okay, there's like 4 black dudes. So, no the poor rural Appalachian whites don' support the Cowboys out of resentment towards the rich, big city Northern Virginia liberals who rule over them. Nope, it's out of resentment at the Reskins for being slow to integrate in the 50s. So much stupid. All so Deadspin can publish a self-congratulatory racism-is-bad piece.

301 Gabriel Over the White House This Sunday, March 31st, is the 80th anniversary of HollywoodÂ’s love-song to Fascist dictatorship and Franklin D. Roosevelt, Gabriel Over the White House. The movie was based on the book by Thomas Fredric Tweed, who was an advisor to David Lloyd George, the father of the British welfare state. Liberal Democrat Producer Walter Wagner obtained the rights to the story and received funding from William Randolph Hearst, who was a huge backer of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Even back in the Â’30′s, the movie was recognized as a call for dictatorship, which was popular with the left back then, as noted by Jonah Goldberg in Liberal Fascism. Roosevelt was reportedly favorable towards the film. More: http://politicalhat.com/?p=1788

The BH and I spent about a decade doing a lot of SCUBA diving -- until our Hawaiian vacation unexpectedly got extended for two additional weeks of hyperbaric therapy. We found SCUBA to be a positive life-changing activity that gives you life-lessons all the time, if you will only listen.



As a classic example, we were diving off the Channel Islands of California, and the water was a bit stirred-up and murky -- so we went a couple of yards upcurrent from the anchor line and found a patch of reef. For the next half-hour we saw all sorts of tiny dramas in a 8' x 8' section of rocks and crannies, with all sorts of beasties we'd ordinarily blink and miss. We surfaced and went back to the boat with huge smiles, chatting with each other: "did you see the hermit crab's reaction when the yellow nudibranch came through?!?"



But when we climbed back aboard, we were surrounded by whiners. "Shitty viz." "What a waste of a dive." "I could have had a better dive in a mud puddle." "Sucks."



It really hammered-home that you shouldn't close yourself off to having good times. Just being open to new experiences can open unexpected opportunities for delight -- but you have to be honest about what you're doing and not act as if you were "Joe Pro Diver".



Every so often (mostly on the ONT), I'll try to talk about something I lived through that gave me that sense of wonder.

I was shocked when my wife said that she would like to do that.

Although I don't disagree, I asked her what she would do after the "Funeral Party" ?

 

She didn't answer, but I think she would have said

"Stop thinking so much, and feel the emotion of the movie"

 

I already had and predicted great joy or crushing sadness, depending on the turnout. I'd rather not make my try at life , a political exercise. Damn Catholic guilt, I guess.

337 Another way to defeat the cameras, especially the automatic ones, is to demand they prove the State is accurate. They need to prove the small letters are correct as well, a full Id is VA 1234ABC not 1234ABC and I think it was VA. You can help make this harder by installing a nice shiny license plate frame and trailer hitch or bike rack.

Posted by: tobacco road at March 30, 2013 11:56 PM (4Mv1T) Oh that's def an issue. It's why my wife no longer does the daycare on a couple sundays a month. The prob right now is that, as truly scary as it is, there is no one who is even close to as capable as I am at running things in the booth. I mean, there was an awards thing in there the other night. I get a phone call from the pastor at 6pm, "I'm getting this error message on the computer screen. what do I do?" I walked him threw it.

346 It makes me grin a bit, watching parents whine about their kids growing up and leaving home. (my wife is terrible with this) Ironic, when you realize the whole thrust from birth is to do exactly that--get them prepped to LEAVE. I love my kids, but there were moments. Posted by: irongrampa at March 30, 2013 11:34 PM (SAMxH) Problem is, that more and more parents aren't actually being parents and raising their children. They let the government and the entertainment industry do that for them. The problem is that back-in-the-day society would have expectations and norms such that even if a child didn't have parents who bothered to raise them, they could still grow up right because of the positive influence of society. Society is self-correcting toa large degree. Today, though, we have far left Progressive scum who have tossed that aside and are using imposed and artificial norms to influence children and effectively become substitute moms and dads non-gender specific parental caregivers. The thing is, that society will continue to correct itself and adapt to the artificial imposition of the Progressive left. When this happens, the correction will become increasingly painful. Ironically enough, rather than an evolutionary society developing naturally over time, it is the left who are pushing what is in effect the sociological equivalent of Intelligent Design, which is similar to their outlook on economics.

357 Tobacco Road, many of them are not allowed to use video and must preserve wet film. Additionally, the red light cameras are very sensitive to camera angles. But, the argument above also applies - they still have to prove it was your car. If they really wanted to make red lights safe, they could install pneumatic popup bollards like the have at embassies. Bollards up on red, they don't go down until the opposite set is up and the intersection is clear. If the nanny fascists want to run our lives, we should demand they do a good job, fuck fox, coward, and pilven.

Lucky for you I'm waiting for the washer to quit spinning so I am here for another minute or two...I deal with the elderly and hospice on a regular basis so I am tasked with asking the elderly about funeral plans. I will say it's about 75/25 of those who have  their whole funeral planned out. I am in awe of people who know exactly the verse they want read, the song they want to be sung and the people they want to carry their body.. I'm 43 and know I should plan this but I'm just not there yet.

I use Pilot Precise V7 pens, and generally have a blue and a red one in my carryon/laptop bag. If I'm going somewhere for six days, I'll pack 7 days of socks. On trips, I carry travel documents in a manila 9x12 envelope with a list written on the outside, keyed to documents (e.g. "A -- shuttle to airport; B -- airline tix outbound; C -- shuttle to hotel; D -- hotel reservation....and a red, circled "A" on the shuttle reservation document, a B on the e-tickets, etc.)

Anyone who has ever driven the freeways of Southern California has seen the overloaded pickup or flatbed that dropped loose shit all over the pavement.

One morning at 5 AM on the 110 I had the misfortune of following a flatbed that spilled a long reel of chicken wire behind it. It was like a giant stretched out Slinky that wrapped around my rear axle and yanked the parking brake cable tight. There I am on the fast lane of the 110 just above Slauson Ave with my back wheels locked. Thankfully it wasn't rush hour yet and CHP managed to stop traffic until they closed the lane and I became that morning's "SIG Alert"

The funny thing is that it's all in the background -- in the foreground, my life is probably more chaotic than yours. When I was bachin' it, I just decided that I should never have to wonder whether I could wipe my ass......so I have a huge stash of TP cached away.

Re: I've been involved in a couple of "incidents".


I used to commute by helo between Vancouver BC and Victoria BC.  Worked great because back in the day the heliport was outside the airport wire, so you just drove up and sauntered into the prefab building and grabbed a coffee and chatted up the staff, and when the helo came you just walked out and got on the fucking thing.  After a while they knew me and if I was the only rider, asked did I mind if they didn't shut it off (it was a deadhead ferry from downtown Vancouver in the oh-dark-thirty), because it cost them a shitload to shut it down and then power it up - a Sikorsky with retracts, 12 pax.  After even longer, they just let me walk out without a guide to make sure I didn't get a wild hair and run headlong into the tail rotor.


So anyway one fine morn I had a lady sitting next to me who had never flown in a helo before and she was up tight.  The drill was that they would lift up to about 20 feet and hold there to make sure the squirrels were all happy, and then they would put the nose down and bugger out real fast.  They did not like to spend a lot of time in the coffin corner between 100 and 500 feet, and I heartily concurred.


But the lady next to me did not realize that a helo puts the nose DOWN to take off, not UP like a fixed-wing taking off.  As soon as the pilot put the spurs to it and the nose dropped, she just knew WE WAS ALL GOING TO DIE.  I still have the scars from her fingernails on my upper right arm 20 years later - no shit.

Propose, and vote on, a bill to give honorably discharged vets a tax credit for one firearm every five years (or something along those lines).

Why?

1) Completely change the dynamic from talking about taking away rights to whether or not the government should be spending money on something.

2) Set the Democrats up start talking about "PTSD crazy vet killing machines" you know they will...

3) Reward a loyal demographic in a way that strengthens the Republic.

500 It's entertaining and interesting, but my skepticism alarms went off when they had Jim Cramer as one of the commenters. Kramer, Trump, Wynn, Case etc.. But my favorite is how John D. Rockafeller's great-grandson manages to be-clown himself! I don't know about every jot and tittle as regards the "historical record" but I do know that this is a very different and way more detailed and entertaining look at America's Industrial Revolution meant for popular consumption than I have seen. Anyways, way better fare than Hitler's UFO's or Pawnshop Poopies or whatever the fuck it is that History Channel usually does. IMHOP.

514 I've been wondering about The Americans. Should I get it off of On Demand? I think that the only two TV series that I still dig and saw from the first epis, are Madmen & Downton Abbey. Dig but came late to: NYPD Blue (Hah! 2009 on TNT had NEVER seen an episode!)Now we are done. Justified (2nd Season, thanx Morons!) Breaking Bad (missed first episode, have no idea why I was watching 2nd epi) Sons of Anarchy (don't know when I checked in. Horrible government lady? I'm still not all caught up I guess, but the Irish season was pretty silly.) The Good Wife (Sounded like a pussy title but it turns out to be a great offering from one of the alphabets.) Dr. Who reboot (Watched the occasional epi from Season 11. Got into the Pond arc.) So, now you know. Do you think I would like The Americans? Why?

My mother and sister watch that show, so I get force to overhear a lot.

I've always been stunned by the time the lead accused her husband of sleeping with her best friend. This would be a volatile statement, except the best friend was a complete stranger at the time. As I said to my family, shouldn't you instead be crediting me for introducing you to your now best friend, by way of my penis and both of your vaginas?

Or worse, she could be forced to pal around with Sarah Jessica Parker and her idiot cohort.

I don't think that Alicia "accused" her husband so much as it was revealed to her after he had said there were no other women she need know about, except for the whores everyone knows about.

I remember machines like the Atari Portfolio, which was a handheld PC clone that used SRAM cards for storage. I sold a few in one of my long ago computer store jobs. Trying to tell kids there used to be stores that just sold computers is akin to trying to explain that stores that just sold vinyl records were once common. And video rental shops were quite large affairs, not a vending machine in the supermarket.

557 I myself fought the law, and a, I won. So I like reading stories of other people winning. And yes, like that guy I was in fact speeding. Turns out the police were breaking the law when I was caught. Had I not studied case law on speeding I would have not found out that they were breaking the law. Driving through a school zone there was a short steep hill going under some railroad traks. The police woud sit on the other side and get people going 5mph over, which was basicly how much faster you were going by coasting down the short hill. So as I approach the other side of the tracks above me I see the chief of police sitting in his unmarked Ford Taurus and weighing about 500 pounds, with his fat arm pointing a radar gun at me. Soon I was pulled over by his chase car buddy, while he continued sitting on his fat ass trying to get the next guy. Well, to my surprise, its against the law in my state to radar from an unmarked car. So I show up that day and plead not guilty (instead of waiting the two weeks that it said on the ticket). I get my day in court the following week. Two cops show up, the Chief, and his chase buddy. The prosecutor comes to talk to me before the trial and offers to drop the charge if I pay the court costs, so I refused that offer and tell him they are breaking the law by running a speed trap in an unmarked car. Five minutes later he comes back and tells me I'm free to go and the city will pay the court costs.

560 There's an intersection in Lauderdale By The Sea (a tiny 1mi square town just north of Ft Lauderdale).  The cops there pretty much fund the whole police force on one particular intersection.

Its setup with a right turn only lane, but across the intersection there's a perfectly fine lane you can drive right across into -- IOW, there's no lane pinch off, and no rational reason for the right turn only designation.  They sit across the street hiding behind a gas station sign and pop anyone who drives through without making a right turn.

Obviously, the intersection has been specifically setup as a trap for anyone driving through who's not familiar with the area.  Yet they've gotten away with this ploy for decades.

I used to hang with the LBTS cops when I was living in Pompano and they just laughed about it.  Nobody in the town objected because it was keeping the taxes down, and they all knew about it.
