Quote of the Day  I - Bad Things Edition

Oops! At JFK airport, workers were caught on video entering restricted areas without security checks.

Even worse, some of them had worked more than 29 hours that week.

Quote of the Day II

It is a common misconception that socialism is about helping poor people. Actually, what socialism does is create poor people, and keep them poor. And that's not by accident. Under capitalism, rich people become powerful. But under socialism, powerful people become rich. When you look at a socialist country like Venezuela, you find that the rulers are fabulously wealthy even as the ordinary citizenry deals with empty supermarket shelves and electricity rationing.

-- Glenn Reynolds

Peter Thiel: The Hero We Need Right Now

Eight years ago Gawker outed Peter Thiel for no other reason than they could plus their usual love of destroying peoples' lives. So it's not really shocking to find out that Thiel has been bankrolling Hulk Hogan's successful lawsuit against Gawker which that will almost certainly end with Gawker's destruction.

About eight-and-a-half years ago, the folks at Gawker made a big to-do about outing libertarian tech billionaire Peter Thiel. According to Nick Denton, the founder of Gawker, Thiel "was so paranoid that, when I was looking into the story, a year ago, I got a series of messages relaying the destruction that would rain down on me, and various innocent civilians caught in the crossfire, if a story ever ran."

Yesterday we learned the form of the destructor that Thiel chose: Hulk Hogan.

...There are many delightful wrinkles to Thiel's Count of Monte Cristo-style, best-served-cold revenge. Personally, I'm excited for all the think pieces from liberal journalists concern-trolling Thiel about The True Meaning Of Libertarianism while they wring their hands about the dangers of silencing opponents of the powerful. I'm sure all of these journalists are currently working on essays defending conservative think tanks from onerous, speech-chilling subpoenas filed by the attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands. They'll be published soon, I just know it.

Frankly, I'm not all that concerned about the chilling effect that Hogan's suit will have, even if it's being funded by a guy with a (perfectly reasonable) grudge. Let's not forget that Gawker got sued for publishing a private sex tape without the permission of the participants. It was pure prurience, with a newsworthiness factor of nil.

Dennis Prager on Why the Left Hates Western Civilization

This month Stanford University students voted on a campus resolution that would have had their college require a course on Western civilization - as it did until the 1980s.

Stanford students rejected the proposal 1,992 to 347. A columnist in the Stanford Daily explained why: Teaching Western civilization means "upholding white supremacy, capitalism, and colonialism, and all other oppressive systems that flow from Western civilizations." The vote and the column encapsulated the Left's view of Western civilization: In Europe, Latin America, and America, the Left loathes Western civilization.
So, then, the Big Question is, Why? Why is the Left hostile to Western civilization?

After decades of considering this question, the answer, I have concluded, is: standards.

The Left hates standards - moral standards, artistic standards, cultural standards. The West is built on all three, and has excelled in all three.

The Left hates standards because when there are standards, there is judgment. And Leftists don't want to be judged.

...In the moral realm, the same rejection of standards exists. Thus, the Left loathed Ronald Reagan for labeling the Soviet Union an "evil empire." That would mean that America was morally superior to the Soviet Union. And such a judgment was unacceptable. The whole left-wing moral vocabulary is a rejection of Western moral standards: "tolerance," "inclusion," "anti-discrimination" (by definition, standards discriminate), "non-judgmental," and even "income inequality," which deems some people's work more valuable than that of others.

...And finally, we come to the Left's loathing of the religions of Western civilization - the Judeo-Christian religions, with their clear standards of right and wrong. Bible-based religions affirm a morally judging God. For the Left, that is anathema. For the Left, the only judging allowed is Leftist judging of others. No one judges the Left. Neither man nor God.

Japan Report - Part I

Yes maid cafes really do exist. Here is a photo I took in Akihabara while doing um..special blog research. And based on my casual yet oddly thorough research manga, anime, AV porn, energy drinks and convenience stores seem to make up approximately half of Japan's GDP. I'm not an trained economist or anything so it's entirely possibly I'm underestimating here.

The Original American Badass

CDR Salamander on Why You Need to Watch Occupied on Netflix

I've recommended the Norwegian mini-series, Occupied, a few times to those who follow me on twitter, but I wanted to bring it over here for discussion.

By reading some of the descriptions, including this one from Netflix, I could see where some in the natsec chatterati might give it a pass, but let me outline why you should give it a watch. As most in the entertainment press are clueless about and have little curiosity to understand military and diplomatic history, practices, or methods - the fact that they miss the forest for the trees in this series is not shocking.

Ignore them - listen to the Salamander.

The acting and sets are very well done with almost none of the usual fluff and cheese one would find if this was done in the USA. Let's get that out of the way. As it is Norwegian, it has a Scandinavian crispness to it that especially those who lived in Northern Europe for any period of time will recognize and enjoy.

The series takes place the near future in Norway. The premise of the series has a few entering arguments that are interesting to watch play out on the screen. The writers are just about pitch perfect in some areas, and certain parts strike Americans in ways an European audience wouldn't understand.

...Finally, when watching you have to keep in mind that on the edges of living memory, Norway was an occupied country with a fighting underground and collaborators. Quisling was Norwegian after all. As such, there are some Norwegian specific sub-plots and messages going on that most non-Norwegians may not get, but I don't think that gets in the way. If you are student of history, you may get one or two of them - but just take them as Easter Eggs and don't worry about looking for them.

The Top Secret Military Base Hidden in Chernobyl's Irradiated Forest

It turns out that the infamous (to shortwave listeners at least) Russian Woodpecker was located near Chernobyl and had to be abandoned after the 1986 accident.

A Soviet military base in Ukraine was so secret that it was identified as a children's camp on maps. That all changed on April 26, 1986, when the nearby Chernobyl nuclear reactor suffered a an explosion in reactor number four. The installation was immediately abandoned, and never used again. All that anyone knew about it before that was the mysterious radio signals known as the Woodpecker signal.

Obviously this is part of a larger political tableau, but doesn't management always 'reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason' yadda yadda yadda? And I think the general conservative viewpoint is that's okay in a free market - a cake baker can refuse to bake your cake because it's for a gay wedding, or because he's a Yankee fan and you want a Red Sox cake, or because he just doesn't like your face.

Of course, I say this before I read the link, so maybe I'm off base.

79 So I saw a picture of a Hasidic ultra conservative, with a towel over his face on the bus. He was trying to avoid seeing women with skimpy clothes. I couldn't help but think of the contrast between that and Muhammad bin Muhammad ali Muhammad that insists the women cover themselves up or die. The Jew takes the sensible, if extreme, action of covering his own eyes. The Muslim takes the insane and extreme action of demanding every woman in his presence be dressed in a shapeless bag.

98 I sleep kinda "Japanese Style", but on a plush Persian rug, on the hardwood floor. Haven't really found an innerspring mattress that works for me, and I'm not willing to squander thousands of dollars in a series of failed experiments therewith. What I really miss was the 4" thick, dual-density foam mattress aboard the New Dawn. It was the perfect amount of soft and simultaneous support, and never resulted in the pressure-points that I've found with innerspring mattresses. If I can find a foam-slab of similar construction, I'll build a platform bed of conventional height under it, and be happy to have it. But for now, at least I don't have to worry if I fall outta bed.

117 I had a weird experience in my youth regarding waterbeds. So my brother and his friend were in an apartment, and his girlfriend hung out there a lot. One day when I was there alone, she came by and told me a friend upstairs was moving out and wanted help with the waterbed. So I went up there and there was this weird conspiratorial vibe that women get sometimes, all sideways glances and secret grins I'm not supposed to see or notice. I hook up the bed with a hose and run it out the door, get the water started and gravity takes care of the rest, as long as there's some weight on the bed. So both girls are sitting on the bed looking at me like I'm supposed to do something next, and my ride shows up so I leave. to this day I wonder what the heck they were up to. Turns out the friend's GF was a bit, er, wayward. I figured she was not exactly true to him when she came down stairs once and modeled lingerie she'd bought for me.

Yeah, but Doc Bricker seemed to be nailing hot chicks all the time simply because he was a doctor. I couldn't figure that out. Just look at the guy. He was losing his hair and he didn't have a hint of a muscle on him.

You'd also think Isaac would put up better numbers simply because he was in control of alcohol consumption so he could ply the females with alcohol to make them more susceptible to his advances. The huge afro probably didn't help but you would think consuming large amounts of alcohol would obscure that feature in the minds of many drunk women.

I really want to thank the Hoard for helping me get through the last few years. I have had a rough few years lately, and reading the content and comments have helped me through this time. After two years of fighting an infection in the bones of my left foot it had to be amputated. Then fighting another three months to get back to work, I had a mild roaster with double bypass. Another five months off. Then last December I tripped at work and destroyed my right ankle. So I have had plenty of time to do lots of reading and lurking here. Now I would like to contribute, if I can. I live in NW Pa where Griswold Cast Iron goes cheap at auctions, so if anyone is looking for some I can hook you up CHEAP! (from the cooking thd yesterday) Also I work at an EVIL oil refinery and am an EVIL union member, but will not and never have voted for a demoncrat.

Start haunting flea markets and garage sales.  The local flea markets go through cycles with cast iron, but some of the antique stores have some always.

ACE is a chick

Anna is a guy

AtC love being refered to as a pixie princess, and is only joking about The Ravage

Maet loves criticism and encourages you to post your corrective ideas freely

Postmodern NY and LA fashion is a hot topic here, don't be afraid to push the limits

Firearms, cats and any dog > 10 pounds is pretty much verbotten in discussion.

Veganism is the preferred life choice. If you must cook meat it must be utterly well done with no animal juices left.

Everyone here is DEEPLY concerned with you life, style, sexuality and transportation choices. Please share them in great detail.

Hope this helps!

230 So, why do students at Stanford get to vote on what courses are offered at Stanford and the requirements needed to earn a degree there? Shouldn't course requirements and the basic structure of degree programs be designed by those with experience in utilizing said degree ,with input by course instructors and professors? Of course, since the students totally run universities these days, I guess I can answer my own question. I know, let's have the student's vote on whether they should have to pay tuition. And should the university provide free beer.

353 334 Divorce is a government-run process designed to make men loathe women and women despise men -- and both regard children as pawns. Posted by: cthulhu at June 01, 2016 12:48 AM (EzgxV) I think Jesus had a word or two to say about divorce, such as, perhaps, "DON'T"! Posted by: tcn in AK at June 01, 2016 12:55 AM (+YMhA) Jesus said, "render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's" -- but considered matrimony a function of the church. Is there any surprise that civil unwinding of a holy union tends towards sin and blasphemy?

476 Am I the only one who read the "Russian Woodpecker" link? That aspect of the story was interesting, but overall it was badly written/edited. First of all, Chernobyl was hardly "the world's worst disaster" by any metric you'd care to name. Certainly not by loss of life, or by economic ruin. But "radiation !!1111!!" seems to make it so. And then he screws up the size of the exclusion zone. "30 square kilometers (12 square miles)" Well, the original exclusion zone had a radius of 30 km from Reactor #4; a circle of radius 30 km (approx. 20 miles) has an area of over 1250 square miles. Which explains how they could fit 90 villages into it.

They are fortunate that they are getting a very dear and prayerful person as their new pastor who is thrilled to able to leave a rather grinding full time job at night (which had nothing to do with ministry) and become a FT pastor.

496 Modern air rifles are a blast. I have a .22 Gamo- reasonably priced, powerful enough to take down rabbits, accurate and with cheap ammo to boot. Plus you can carry 250 rounds in your pocket. Oh, and it comes equipped with a mothaf'in suppressor. The FPS figures air rifle manufacturers advertise are almost universally bullshit, but for sub-50 yard critter-killin' it's enough as long as you do your part. Just don't go thinking they're like the Crossman 760 you (we) grew up with- it's like comparing a .30-30 to a 300 Win Mag.

Usually at a ryokan dinner and/or breakfast are included in the price which can vary a lot depending on location and luxuriousness. This particular place only cost around $140/night - I got a good deal because it was after Golden Week so there were a lot of vacancies. Usually adding in dinner or half board at a hotel will cost $30-$60 extra.

In general food is cheaper is rural areas unless they're very touristy. But even in the cities you can still eat cheaply if you go where the locals eat. In downtown Kyoto I walked into a ramen place and enjoyed a nice bowl of ramen, some gyoza, and a beer for under $10.

Is there enough compression heating of the air to ignite a fuel charge? There's enough heat to ignite a charge- Google "dieseling air rifle". It's not especially safe and I don't know that any manufacturer makes an air gun with that purpose in mind, but it is possible (and been done), though not recommended.

509 AOP: "Practical Guide to Man-Powered Bullets", $27.97 My copy is somewhere in my shelves. This book has a section on building air rifles ... not low-end Daisy-grade, but close, and the author recommends against building such things. The risk of failure is high, and the penalty severe. Add diesel ... you'll feel very much less pain asking me to hold your beer ... I've been looking at boring barrels (.44Mag), and it's not hard to do, even 20", but you need the correct equipment, and you really need know heat-treating, not just the theory, not just having done it once, but enough to be certain that the resulting barrel really is the correct temperature throughout and the quench is correct: no cracks, soft spots, etc.

519 As far as the Left and its hatred of Western Civilization goes, the roots of that lie in 1865:

For being the driving force behind the abolition of the ancient and disgusting institution of chattel slavery, the world's would-be masters have hated Christianity ever since.  Everything built on it, ergo all of Western Civilization, eventually came to be hated - they want to pull out the tree by the root.

Vic said he was off to Charleston, but didn't say whether it was work, medical or pleasure.  So no VNN for the rest of the week, I think.

 

So I think I mentioned earlier that I'm listening to the audio book Tinseltown by William Mann.  It's about the  1922   murder of silent director  William Desmond Taylor, a case which still remains officially unsolved, even though many theories have been put forward over the years (Mann believes Taylor was the victim of a blackmail plot gone wrong).

 

The main suspect in the case has always been Charlotte Shelby, mother of the  unwilling actress Mary Miles Minter.   Shelby was the stage mother from hell, and kept Minter on as short a leash as possible (especially after the virginal waif was deflowered by director Jimmy Kirkwood, resulting in Shelby dragging her daughter off for an abortion).  There was a great deal of circumstantial evidence and gossip which seemed to link Shelby to the crime - enough so that director King Vidor, who wanted to make of movie of the Taylor murder, was convinced she had done it -  but no charges were ever brought by  the   DA.*

 

Here is Minter - billed as the heir to Mary Pickford, in 1917:

 

https://goo.gl/4Of1pj

 

After Taylor's death, Minter's career faded away and she retired to relative comfort, noting that she had never been happy as an actress.  In 1981, she was severely beaten   and nearly killed  during a burglary at her  house, which probably contributed to her death in 1984.

 

*Vidor's investigations ended up as the book A Cast of Killers which is hugely entertaining, but packed with errors.

The craziest bugs I have near me are hummingbird moths. In flight, they look exactly like little hummingbirds, but with antenna. They even have the splayed tail that real hummingbirds display while flying. They flap their wings the same way. They hover, they fly backwards, they eat nectar from flowers. And they're only an inch, to an inch and a half long.

586 Prager's wrong, at least he doesn't go to the core of the matter: The Left hates Western Civ because it's in the way. It was too strong, too solid, and it was never going to collapse into the Socialist Utopia that Marx predicted, so it had to be weakened and undermined. The Left, always devotees of Marx, incorporated and spread the hatred of the West into the West itself so it could destroy itself from within, weakening it to the point where it, too, would collapse into socialism.

I wouldn't have thought it possible 10, 20, 30 years ago, but they've been wildly successful at getting Americans (especially the young) to hate their own country. It's been an amazing spectacle to behold, but here we are. That story about Standford is but one example, among hundreds, that scare the crap out of me. The march is progressing quite nicely.
