Finding Your Indian Name

Well since Elizabeth Warren gets to be a self-declared Native American and it's now racist/sexist to question her status I figure we all can be too. So the first task for the Moron Nation is to come up with a more fitting name rather than the one your paleface parents gave you.

Here's mine based on this all-scientific-and-stuff computer-based generator.

What is your Indian Name
Your Result: Payphone Ringing in Empty Hallway

No one seems to listen to you and you always seem to be just a few cents short when you need it most. Luck doesn't seem to be on your side but someday you'll dial a different number.

Dog with Tail Between Legs
Woman with Broken Heal
Big Crack in Sidewalk
Piece of Gum Stuck to Desk
Pain in Big Ass
Hair with no Place
Wrong Side of Bed
What is your Indian Name

But if you don't like the results of that one, well I gots this one:

Don't like these? Well then your name must be Yanishka Machakw meaning 'one who is never satisfied and whines like a woman'.

How Biden Got the Cold War All Wrong

Well I've disliked Biden since the late 80's when he had more hair and was an asshole rather than the buffoon of today. And this article is a reminder that he comes in second to only Sen. Kerry in getting nearly every single foreign policy question of the last 40 years wrong.

What was Biden doing during the Cold War? Well, you can guess by invoking the "Biden Rule"-the man is never right about foreign policy, so it's easy to work backwards and figure out where he stood.

...Throughout his career, Mr. Biden has consistently opposed modernization of our strategic nuclear forces. He was a fierce opponent of Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative. Mr. Biden voted against funding SDI, saying, "The president's continued adherence to [SDI] constitutes one of the most reckless and irresponsible acts in the history of modern statecraft." Mr. Biden has remained a consistent critic of missile defense and even opposed the U.S. dropping out of the Antiballistic Missile Treaty after the collapse of the Soviet Union (which was the co-signatory to the ABM Treaty) and the end of the Cold War.

And that was just during the Reagan administration. Where Biden ever got the reputation as a wise old-man of foreign policy is an eternal mystery to me.

Reviews for the North Korea's Hoeryong Gulag

Well as gulags go it seems to be one of the better run ones according to reviews on Google:

albano7659: Not too much to complain about. Food is below average, but it gets the job done. The cells are simple, white walls, and a metal framed bed. Sounds worse than it actually is. Your body gets used to the metal framing after a while, and the empty white walls offer a blank canvas for your imagination to paint a picture on. Executions are conducted in a timely and organized matter.
Mike: BEST FAT CAMP! They don't feed you, make you work 12+ hour days, and the instructors are like drill sergeants yet better. I'm not supposed to say their secret to non-members BUT I can say P90X has nothing on their program. Admissions is easy: just be a foreigner (preferably American) and cross illegally from Russia. They literally, I mean literally, have your passes at the border just like cruise ship vouchers being handed out for attending a time share presentation. If you're not into quick weight loss seriously this place isn't for you and you may even consider it a crime against humanity and against every internationally adopted treaty but if you're ready for hard core this is the place!

Zombie: How Occutards Took Over a Farm and Turned It Into a....Farm

Read this classic zombie report full of delicious snark on how a bunch of #Occupiers took over a research farm run by UC Berkeley and turned it into ..well a bunch of dirt with a few sad seedlings and a stunt-leek but with free group-hypnosis. But not to worry - this is just the start of their revolution. They plan to occupy the entire nation and do the same thing but on a larger scale.

IMG_6434

Oh and remember how the #OWS crowd occupied a house in Brooklyn that would be used to help the homeless? Well it turns out they gave it same treatment as the Berkeley farm:

Police arrested six Occupy Wall Street members squatting inside a Brooklyn home five months after the movement seized the property amid grand promises to "renovate" it and move in "a homeless family."

Instead, the group moved itself in, wrecked the place, and made a hard situation even worse for a single father who actually owned the East New York home and was trying to save it from foreclosure.

8 Incredible Things Slapped Together in a Day

Well there's the 380 mile Iowa road built in a day but the grandest, most important day achievement were the Mulberry harbors built in the days after D-Day:

Known as Mulberry Harbours (they were developed by the English, so they were allowed to misspell it), these artificial harbors were massive structures built out of concrete blocks, sunken ships and wooden roadways, all floated over in pieces, moved into position and locked down, making it by far the largest Lego project ever undertaken.

At about 1 mile long, each harbor was like a floating city, with depots, docks and roadways sturdy enough to drive tanks on.

The skeleton was mostly laid out in a day, the bridges were usable within three and the whole thing was completely assembled within a week. Over the course of 109 days, the week's worth of work allowed 2.5 million troops and 17 million tons of equipment to pour into occupied France and finish Nazi Germany for good.

How The Death Panels Will Come

First they will decide that you're not worthy of treatment. Then they'll let nature take its course.

More than half of doctors across the UK have backed controversial measures to withhold treatment to smokers and the obese.

According to a new survey around 54 per cent of those who took part said the NHS should have the right to deny non-emergency treatments to those who fail to lose weight or kick their smoking habits.
In some parts of England smokers and the obese are already being rejected IVF treatment as well as hip and knee replacements by private clinics but patient groups have reacted angrily to calls for the NHS to follow suit, saying it denies them their basic human rights.

If you're not directly paying for it, then it's a 'gift' from the government. And gifts can be taken away.

The Yahoo AoSHQ group. Bla bla bla.

And don't forget about the Job Bank.

And my twitter thang.

It's even more BS-y... there are also other brands not included that may be smaller nationally, or local.  I buy a ton of products that are generic like soda and cheese - store brands,  just as good or better for a fraction of the cost.

I don't know, UV, I think the brand map is really useful, because I think there are an awful lot of people who don't realize that very few large conglomerates own the majority (key word here=majority) of consumer product brands in the US. It's true on a global scale and a similar map could be made for clothing, accessories, and household goods, not to mention cars when you get right down to it.

 

When this sort of thing begins to be scary is when you combine the umbrella ownership of a company like Pepsi with the rabid, frothing at the mouth liberal who is the current CEO and is forcing things like chemical modification of the taste of the food based on various favored liberal agendas.

 

I'd rant more about this, but I'm too tired.

I can't wait for the May Day disruptions. Here in Seattle they are hoping to relegate the WTO riots to a footnote by making much more mischief. The mayor is in a dither.

 

There is a full day's schedule which near as I can tell involves them marching from spot to spot to shriek into their bullhorns and listen to DJs spinning tunes, before they march on to the next spot to do it all over again. Wells Fargo is being particularly targeted, but I'm sure that the downtown Starbucks locations won't be spared the wrath of the herd.

Gets even better. The Obama campaign is bringing in Lurch to talk up the SCOAMF's foreign policy chops and tell us how much Lurch's constituents in MA hated Romney

From Politico;

Another presidential campaign is in full swing. A fresh set of foreign policy issues is at stake. And once again, John Kerry is reporting for duty.

The Obama campaign is ready to deploy Kerry as a top surrogate on foreign policy and national security this year, a natural task for the 68-year-old Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman, whom many party strategists see as a nearly perfect foil for presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

We had a small farm when I was younger. These stupid little know it alls need to be put in their place. By the way, my dad would chop the heads off chickens, and my mom would "clean" (read gut and defeather) the chickens, and the pheasants my brother hunted. Either the authorities need to enforce the laws on these trespassers or force them to live on their own stupidity.

Basically Pepsi is manipulating things like salt to create a healthier product while maintaining the taste people look for in snack food.

 

My objection is that if I want to eat salt, I want to eat salt, not a chemically modified version of it that was developed in a lab to trick me into eating a certain company's food.

I am not a freakin chemist (chemjeff, where are you) so I don't know how they are creating new "salt" but it is something called "15 micron salt" it makes the potato chips taste salty, but without as much salt.

 

Then they are adding biotech products to make a soda that tastes sweeter, but isn't, it is manipulating your taste buds into thinking it is sweeter.

 

I know this all probably isn't bad, per se, but as with any sort of progress in this area, don't we have enough of an idea where this eventually leads?

146 Interesting evening for me tonight on the soccer field.  Some emotional highs and lows, rare that they all happen in the same game.



So I've got this girls HS varsity game, and as we're waiting for the national anthem to start, the PA guy is obviously screwing up.  He actually starts playing Ruffles and Flourishes or Feathers or whatever it is and can't find the Anthem track.  So the girls start singing it themselves, acappella, just jokingly at first.  So I ask if they're serious, I'll let them do it, and try to get the attention of the PA guy to stop him.  Doesn't work, he starts the anthem and drowns out the players trying to lead their crowd in singing the national anthem before the game.  But it was just awesome, I certainly did not expect to see that based on the local demographic IYKWIMAITTYD, sometimes I really love being out there on the field 



And then came the lows...two girls, from the same team, went down with serious injuries.  Broken collarbone and torn ACL.  I hate listening to girls scream in pain when there's nothing to do to make it better.



So I'll have another beer and toast their health and pray they get better soon.  And I don't have to see that stuff again soon.

149 they're changing the shape of the salt crystal to make a lesser amount of salt have more flavor.

Undoubtedly just increased surface area per unit volume -- i.e. shaved along a fracture plane off a large single crystal/block, rather than simply crushed.

There's other more sophisticated things that could be done with a flake product as well - like laser drilling hole patterns to further increase surface area.

I'd love to see the people in NYC and San Francisco stuck in traffic for hours and not be able to get home from work.

181 139 I am not a freakin chemist (chemjeff, where are you) so I don't know how they are creating new "salt" but it is something called "15 micron salt" it makes the potato chips taste salty, but without as much salt.
Posted by: ParanoidGirlInSeattle at April 30, 2012 10:30 PM (RZ8pf)

    I actually worked, in an ancillary way, with some people involved in that - the salt-making process is manipulated (and has been for years) to provide the right level of saltiness for the application, entirely based on crystal size.  It's why pretzel salt is so big, but potato-chip salt is invisible.  In the first, you want chewy pretzel and sweet bread taste, followed by big lingering salty flavor.  In the latter, you want an immediate burst of salt, then crunchy savory potato.  It's nothing new.  The smaller the crystal, the more immediate and less lingering salty experience.  In the food industry, the right salt is a BFD.  If the 'tato chip people are going down to 15 microns, it's to enhance and satisy the desire for the immediate salty sensation while using less salt overall.  Salt is cheap, but when you make millions of anything, it adds up. Smart move overall.

Posted by: StPatrick_TN at April 30, 2012 05:41 PM (ND9u8)

182
"15 micron salt" sounds like they're aiming to produce smaller sized salt crystals rather than altering the arrangement of the sodium and chloride atoms. (Good luck with that in the absence of high pressures or the introduction of other types of ions to disrupt the crystalline order.)

The rate of dissolution of salt, sugar or any other dissolvable substance is proportional to its surface area. Shrinking the size of salt crystals would increase their surface area to mass ratio and presumably yield the same salty taste with less matter.

Fuck Elizabeth Warren, I am just as much part Cherokee (my Great Grandmother was one of them Oklahoma to CA immigrants with Cherokee ancestry) as she claims to be so elizabethe is my Indian name. 2. If you want to read about early attempts at communal living in America, read about Brook Farm (a failure) or Nathanial Hawthorne's story "The Blithedale Romance" (a novelization of that experiment) i think it was Emerson (also on the farm) who said something like even though it was supposed to be this place where artists could take time for their art and everyone would support everyone else, he always felt so guilty when other people were working he could never get any writing done there. I guess the Occupiers don't have the problem. That's it.

Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo (NJConservative) at April 30, 2012 10:56 PM (nEUpB)


Actually reading the wikipedia article on saccharin it turns out that the mechanism by which it caused bladder cancer in rats is unique to rats and can't happen in humans. That's why the warnings have come off saccharin products.

So yeah rats seem to get cancer awfully easy.

Kind of depends on the manipulation though.  Afterall we're the ones that aren't going to get upset about Genetically Modified food.  So you know if they want to put it in a few foods and label it with the "Low salt" or "fake sugar" then ok.  The whole "working with the government" stuff is crap.  And if they plan to stick it in everything I'll join you in getting really pissed.

Before saccharin, it was cyclamate that was banned based on BS science.

Ironically, "...in 1937, Michael Sveda, while doing laboratory research, brushed some loose tobacco shreds from his lips and inadvertently tasted one of the chemicals.  'It was sweet enough to arouse my curiosity,' he later said."

And who said smoking hasn't contributed to society?

However, this chart doesn't make it clear that DPSG is entirely independent of Cadbury and Kraft, ever since 2008. There's lots of other complications: - Lipton owned jointly by Unilever and Pepsi; Pepsi does most of the work, since they know beverages. This is shown by being in both companies 'trees'. -Nestea, similarly, owned by Nestle and Coke. -Venom Energy, as far as I know, is owned by DPSG.

"Obama's Bin Laden Ad: Hit Below The Belt Shows Democrats Can Be Tough Too"

 

Excerpt:

 

"Critics, including Huffington Post Media Group Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington, have said President Barack Obama is inappropriately politicizing a grave matter of national security.

 

But the ad also appears to question Mitt Romney's courage, calling into question whether he would have given a green light to U.S. Navy SEALs who had located what they thought was Osama bin Laden's hideout and awaited presidential permission to strike.

 

The Obama campaign's grounds for doing so are one Romney quote that has nothing to do with how he would have handled the bin Laden operation, and another that appears to show Romney had a policy position that would have prevented him from approving the strike, but that crumbles under further inspection of its context."

garrett, we were chatting with an Arkansas game ranger along the White a few years back.  He said they had shocked out a section of the river just downstream from the Bull Shoals dam and found a 50 pound brownie still alive.  He told us the reason they're so hard to catch in that river is that they just sit on the bottom facing upstream in a prime spot eating whatever comes along.  If you don't happen to get the right bait in front of them, no luck.

 

The most successful brown hunters use bass tackle and baits.  They also wear their arms out in a about an hour or so, I reckon.

339 305 Okay here's the situation. I am going in for a blood test tomorrow (probably just for cholesteral). It is at 11:15am local and I am not supposed to eat or drink anything for 12 hours prior. It just turned 11:15pm here and I poured myself a nice class of a rapidly metabolized carbohydrate s;ightly amber beverage originating in Scotland. Anybody think it will have the slightest effect on the test? I'm too cheap to throw it out and as it is over ice it should not return to the bottle. Wasting it is aCardinal sin in Scotland.

Dan, my doctor's office tells me not to eat or drink anything after midnight before my blood tests, and I usually go at 8am.

True story, my aunt (who is just a couple of years older than me), had a colonoscopy a couple of years ago and they told her she could only drink or eat clear liquids. So she had a couple of beers the night before. The doctor was going to get mad, but when she told him that beer was clear, he smiled and said yes it is.

346 Clear liquid doesn't mean it has no color; it means it isn't pulpy or thick.

Coke, tea, coffee...all clear liquids. You should avoid red or purple colored liquids, as they can be mistaken for blood, but clear liquids just means anything that doesn't have any body to it.


Liquor will affect your liver, which is where cholesterol is formed. Not sure what the effect will be, in terms of chlosterol, but it will affect the liver.

8 " Bunny Strip Streamers...really, anything that looks like a dead/wounded baitfish will do it... 

You have to dredge deep and let them just roll along the bottom.  The trick is getting them into the zone and keeping them there.  There are a couple of ways of achieving this, but it depends on depth and water volume as to which is most effective for a particular run/river.

We regularly catch 30 - 40" trout (Browns and Bulls) doing this up here in the Spring. I haven't been able to break the magic 40, but I have put several 38+ in the boat this way.

Liquor will affect your liver, which is where cholesterol is formed. Not sure what the effect will be, in terms of chlosterol, but it will affect the liver.

Alcohol in general tends to raise the triglyceride count overall.  I think the effect on cholesterol is fairly neutral (unless you want to count all the way to End Stage Liver disease.)  The pathways don't overlap as much.  (EtOH is processed through the fat pathway, which is what causes the trig. raises.

364 "227 Aspartame. You know Nutri-sweet. And the Carcinogen claims on it were as legit as global warming." A very long time ago there was a low calorie sweetener called "cyclamates". Tasted very good, and was usable in a lot of products. So of course the do gooders decided that it caused cancer. After they destroyed the industry, of course, they found out that it didn't cause cancer, at least no unless you ate a half ton of it per day.

Rats are notoriously susceptible to cancer. That's why extrapolating dose to humans is fucking stupid.

That's varient on the strain actually.  It's even worse for mice.  C57BL/6 (Black 6, B6) mice are almost immune to cancer.  Crazy the way that works.  You could feed them asbestos and make them smoke cigarettes all day every day and I don't think they'd get cancer.  (That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but they are highly resistant to it.)

The saccharine debacle was because it metabolizes into a strange crystaline form in rats (and mice I believe? My mouse metabolism is fading these last few years.)  The crystals poked holes in the bladder.  The constant repairing of the bladder led to the cancer.

We've learned a ton about rodent metabolism since then.

I went out and downed 60 ozs of beer before my last doctors appointment and smoked my pipe most of the night, my levels were as fine as they've ever been (not great, I have pretty bad hereditary cholesterol problems, at a young age too, but the liver enzymes and TriGs were fine.)

What was that sweetener they put in everything in the 70s
that was later determined to be a carcinogen? Thank you, but I will just
eat my crappy diet the way the good Lord intended and take my chances .

That would be saccarin.  I heard it is or was produced in a little burg near here called Elmwood.  The after taste was atrocious.  The fed the equivalent of 500 cans per day of soda sweetened with it to rats and they developed cancer.  Who knew.  So they temporarily took it off the market.  The factory in Elmwood really wasn't concerned though because most of the product was being used in the proces of chroming bumpers and other stuff for the auto industry.  That's what I heard and I am sticking to it.

Agree that Holder should be prosecuted for a multitude of things. Won't hold my breath for it though

These days an impeachment trial would be a political nightmare.  Post Clinton I'm not sure we have the stomach for it even at the AG level.  Better to just vote his boss out of office frankly.

Oscar Meyer Lunchables.  I used to love the Ham and Swiss.

First they changed the crackers from Ritz to some retched nasty no salt wheat cracker.  OK I usually keep a box of Ritz anyway.

The latest have been down sized about 25%.  Same number of awful crackers, but the cheese and meat sections have a little post in the bottom.  The slices are now super thin.  Same Price.

 

But do not worry, there is no inflation.  25% less product for the same price.

Not to say I never buy store brands, but when I do it's because it's unusually good - when companies cancel a product I like, it's often a pain in the Khatousis to find a replacement, because the alternatives are all completely different even if the name/type of food is the same. Cheese especially, store brand cheeses tend to be bitter or tasteless (or both). There have been exceptions, in the old days Luckys fake-o cheese slices were good, and for a while Raleys were - but the latter's not really cheap. Cheap hot dogs are a tragedy. They taste spoiled to me.

Which would be a huge benefit, when you think about it. But seriously, there's a huge difference between different soy sauces, not even counting the allergen factor (there are about 10-12 I have found made without wheat). Kikkoman, La Choy, San-J, and the several different actual Chinese brands we get here can be quite different, though obviously they're salty and roughly similar.

Real conservatives know that it's not the ingredients, it's not the effort, it's not even the concern -- it's the desire to please the recipient instead of provide "what's good for her." Otherwise, you'd have gotten tofu and sprouts on a multigrain brick from a smelly hippie and liked it.

I'm not allergic to onions, but biting into a piece of one is like biting into a bug. You cannot slice them fine enough. I sometimes uses powder in cooking, never onions. When I was a kid people were constantly saying "you'll never notice them," and it was *never* true. Oh, people who tried to hide things in my food, I so wanted to do terrible things to them. And before you ask, yes, I have eaten bugs. Never enjoyed, but eaten.

633 they are okay if you have the right type of tomato (something hearty) and the right amount of sun (as the plants grow in weird shapes). Better off with planters or pots

One of our odd family traditions is to construct "modern mythology". One such (from me) is that sophisticated cooking arrived on this planet via meteor, from outer space. The meteor landed somewhere in Tuscany, and fine cuisine radiated outward from there in waves -- while somehow being entirely blocked by the English Channel.

635 Now I'm gonna have to eat. Done waited myself until 11pm for breakfast again. Actually I had a snack in the afternoon, but not a real meal. Sometimes I don't eat all day. Probably terrible for me, I just can;t stomach it (stupid meds).

639 Jake - Rabbit is verboten too then for you?
Goat's a favorite of mine, I like a meat with personality. The spit-roasted kid some crazy friend of my Mom's did on an improvised setup in her backyard one Easter remains one of my favorite meat memories. I've had my share of insects as well, the best I can say about those is they're edible but not tasty enough to warrant eating them save out of desperation.

Posted by: sistrum at April 30, 2012 08:53 PM (AyryN)

640 Goat's not bad, all in how it's cooked I guess. My mom used to make a sweet-and-sour goat that was fine and roast or stew was pretty much like beef. Of course, those were young and grass-fed both of which probably make a difference.

Posted by: Polliwog, Teahada hobbit at April 30, 2012 08:55 PM (X8/ER)

641 #620 I never would have thought of it myself. I can tell you it was the best chipotle spread I've ever tried! Stuck said he roasted the tomatoes, then peeled and seeded them. Put everything into a blender and blend until smooth. You can give it more zing with a little black pepper. He tells me if you don't want to roast your own tomatoes you can buy them in a jar already roasted at the store.

645 When I was growing up, I had the reputation of an extremely picky eater -- but, as an adult, I've had a variety of culinary adventures around the world. And I've realized a thing or two.....I'll try just about anything at a Michelin 2 or 3 star restaurant, but if my parents say, "you should try this, it's good", I should be glad I ate dinner before visiting.

647 Not everyone thinks much about it, but texture is important in food. I'm not allergic to onions, but biting into a piece of one is like biting into a bug. You cannot slice them fine enough. I sometimes uses powder in cooking, never onions.



Dice them fairly fine and then sweat them down and sautee them in a sauce pan with a little garlic and a lot of butter.  Salt and pepper to taste, and then add any other favorite flavors.  Bring everything into a nice onion-y garlic-y mushy congealed flavo-rama then add it to whatever you want.  Just my opinion, I do love the chunky onions but there's a time and place for everything.



And now I'm off to my kitchen for some good food followed by sleepytime.  Night y'all.

650 Sistrum, I'm always concerned about the parasites that insects carry so hope to never need to try any. Then again, bere in MO everyone looks at me strangely when I say I want nothing to do with wild animals since they can carry plague fleas. My best guess is that it comes from being raised in the Southwest.

681 #671 It's strange but she doesn't have a problem with it at all. She's curled up next to Stuck with her head on his leg. Rooster is on his back with his legs in the air sound asleep right above Molly's head. She seems very protective of Rooster, almost like he's her own puppy. She normally isn't like that, she really doesn't like other dogs. But she has changed a lot since we started spending so much time at Stuck's house. She is so much calmer. She doesn't run and hide from people anymore. She's like a completely different dog.

Now, they're doing that in India. I don't actually like saffron, I just read about how they grow it when I was a kid and thought there has to be a better way. Also, who wouldn't want to undercut Iran?

718 Serbs are pretty boys. If only they had to live through the law of the jungle, Darwin would have have taken care of them a long time ago. Serbian women are weak, and their progeny only survive due to the affection the Serbian women have for their effeminate, ovoid faces.

735 Having experienced the joyous "extend your vacation for two weeks at the hyperbaric chamber" thing, myself (although it was the BH who got hit), I'd still have to recommend SCUBA -- taught competently -- to others.

We ran into a lot of PADI ("Pay A lot, Die Instantly") divers along the way, and were reassured by the quasi-military nature of our NAUI training. When you graduated from the program we did, you felt capable.

We've seen worlds beyond description in places undreamed-of by epic voyagers of days gone by. While there were times that were a pain in the tuchis, much of it was beautiful beyond description.

737 Sorry, away from keypad...

Bosnia used to be fairly evenly divided between Serb, Croat and Bosnian Muslim. I vividly remember reading a LA Times article during the heat of the Croatian fighting, some Bosnians being interviewed and saying -- oh, we're evenly represented here so that'll never happen to US. Har, bitter har. Don't know what the percentages are right now, of course. But there's confusion with the term Bosnian meaning just "from Bosnia" and how the media uses it as only for the islamites 'cause they can't easily group them either with Serb or Croat - though the Croats would say they are Croatian too, they just went Muslim back in the day to escape paying the fines for not being such.

My mom came from the Dalmatian coast area, though more northerly than Dubrovnik. She was born on a little island called Prvic, off the coast from Sibenik (the town where Goran Visnjic hails from, BTW,  if you were a fan of ER).

Posted by: Robert at May 01, 2012 03:17 AM (4ixH5) Following up on that, leftists think they have a *right* to control other people, they wouldn't be leftists otherwise. I mean, pretty much everything is about government (in their eyes, themselves) controlling society. And if they're thwarted, they get *nasty*, because you're violating their "right" by not letting them control you. That's how they can claim criticism is censorship and fighting against higher taxes is greed. So they commit vote fraud, trespass, vandalize, steal, rig polls, "game" online systems like the spam complaint trigger on Twitter... They don't "feel" it's wrong because their goal is a perfect world - how could anyone be against that? Well, people who realize consequences matter more than intentions, for example. And that seems *such* an unfair concept to liberals, I mean, look at history. They'd never get a vote.

Which reminds me, my father once told me a Tito joke:

Tito dies, and everybody hates him so much no one wants to give him a funeral. Serbs, Croats, Slovenians, Macedonians, everybody refuses in turn. At the very last a small group of Jews came forward and out of charity volunteer to do it.

They were refused. "You guys buried Jesus, and he came back; we don't want to take that chance with Tito."

756 Cthulhu : Yes, but long, long ago. It's not precisely remote though -- it's called "Prvic" 'cause it's the first ("prvi") island you reach going out from shore. But it's small, only two villages, and didn't get running water 'til the 70s. And of course a lot of people have left because what the hell is there to do there but fish a little and grow grapes? But it is pretty I'll grant you. I inherited a couple of strips of land there, one on the ocean but because of current rules on setback and such essentially unusable for building, one in the hills but good for nothing but goat pasturage. Maybe someday I'll visit and lord over my absolutely useless domain.

I grew up in California, so I got to experience the Vietnamese exodus firsthand.....and the whole "Nguyen" and "Tran" thing. Closest analogy I can make offhand....imagine if Republicans and Democrats had leading families that dominated factions for generations -- like, say, the "Kennedys" or the "Bushes". And imagine that this went on for hundreds of years, rewarding supporters and quashing opposition, to the point where common people named themselves "Fred Jones o'Kennedy" or "Jane Doe o'Bush". That's why 90% of the folks you meet from Vietnam are named either Nguyen or Tran [leading one to contemplate "Phan" as "o'Paul", I suppose].

And that was how I learned that California, of all states, gives its blessing to first cousin marriages.

In many tropical climes, there are geckos all over the place. When we were in Taveuni, Fiji, and would go back to our room and turn on the light, all the startled geckos would fall off the walls and ceiling and scurry under the furniture. It was quite comical, but we'd then wish them "good hunting" as we settled-in under the mosquito net.

Which is too bad. Geckos are funny (some of the big ones fall off the ceiling and hit the ground like a pratfall), benign (yeah, right -- find me someone who's been bitten by one), helpful (1000 bugs adhered to the wall, 1000 bugs adhered.....gecko flicks one with its tongue, 999 bugs adhered to the wall....), and retiring -- they all try to disappear as soon as the lights come on. No matter how much I like cats, I can't see it as anything but unfortunate to have cats v. geckos in one's home.

Oh, there's a little window in my shower that I can look out of while I'm showering.  Can't actually see shit cause I'm blind as a bat when I'm not wearing my glasses but sometimes I see this blurry little gecko form walk across hunting what appears to be blurry fluttering mothinglike things.  Sometimes he gets lucky and gets a quick meal while I bathe.

Two weeks earlier, when we were n00bs and didn't have any geckos, we were on Kadavu, Fiji and had a different experience. We'd gotten instruction for the mosquito netting, and had set it up over the bed properly -- but decided to do some reading before going to sleep, so we set a lantern on the nightstand outside the net. And, y'know, you hold the book so that the light shines over your shoulder.



....and the fookin' thing gets darker and darker....who'd figure that those cheap-ass batteries would be so lame? Until turning over and seeing a scene from an Indiana Jones movie. The lantern was as bright as before, it's just that there were three solid inches of massed insects on the light and the mosquito netting next to it......which leaves the question, how to turn it off? I'd've killed for a couple dozen geckos then.

So

That sounds like a good start -- but if you'd been in the US, intentionally gone back to the line chefs, and discovered to your dismay they were all hispanic would have kicked off another adventure......especially when they understood (and prepared) a tasty "Pad Thai" while leaving the wait staff clueless.

815 Geckos have rights, too. Not too many, not well respected, cold blooded, goggle-eyed, slow-witted, and scaly-skinned, but rights none-the-less. Unless they're left handed, in which case they have no natural rights at all and are to be considered the natural enemies of all sentient creatures.

There was a candy store in the mall (Sue Bees or something)  and there were only women in Amish looking costume working there, and they told us we need not apply. We didn't have to be women, but we had to wear the dress. That was enough for us to move along.
