Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)
— Open Blog

Hello, hello all M&Ms. Welcome to your weekly Saturday night ONT.

Programming note - I'll be traveling again this week so the ONT may not go up until 10:30PM EST for a while. So hold off for a bit on the angry mobs search parties.

Four Lions: a Jihadi comedy
Here's a scene from an upcoming mockumentary by British satirist Chris Morris that follows a group of hapless UK Jihadi wannabes. If he has the balls to go all the way with this, it could be really funny.
And yeah I just noticed that ArthurK had posted this in the sidebar earlier. Oh well I guess double posting is part of the moron way.

How to Lose a Guy in 14 Easy Steps
For the moronettes. And yeah unauthorized reorganization of the cave and matching outfits are pretty annoying, but I wouldn't consider them dealbreakers.

HeLa Cells Still Aiding Researchers Today
Henrietta Lacks died in 1951 but her cancer cells are immortal, literally and figuratively.

Genius: Single serving pie in jar
Just enough and no one get cheated out of their fair share of crust.

apple pie with flowers.jpg

British Scientists: The G-spot doesn't exist, French Scientists: Au contraire it certainly does
And the Frenchies add that the Brits are all a bunch of women-hating totalitarians.

The LOL-cat Family Tree
I can has history?

Miss Student Russia 2010
For you enjoyment. And with more interesting costumes than usual.

The Yahoo AoSHQ group. Bla bla bla.

17 Just because 16 Candles and Serendipity is playing on your local silver screen doesn’t mean you should drag the boyfriend out for popcorn and soda fountain drinks. In fact, we’re almost positive that you’ll score major brownie points if you never do something like this.

I've not only seen, but enjoyed two of the movies in their "chick flick" pile. 13 going on 30 is funny, and anything with Sophia Myles in it is worth watching.

Women always suggest that when they move out, the dishes pile up in the sink, the socks and underware are thrown about the floor, the coffee table is loaded with beer cans and Chinese take out cartons, and the toilet seat hasn't been lifted since the day she left. 

All untrue, as the sloppy bastard moved to his mother's so he could eat.

I can't tell you how disturbing this night is. I'm watching the Parent Trap on Disney (not by choice--babysitting my niece and nephew).

First, it reminds me how much I liked Miranda Richardson. So sad. Second, I just saw pics of LL in her new movie--topless. I can't beleive this is the same cute little 12 year old girl from this movie.

Because we know there aren't like a billion women willing to mortgage their homes to drool over him wooing some lady. And so few other actors in Hollywood brave enough to play gay for an Oscar...

Agreed, dagny.

But he's especially delicious in that movie. I think the scenes between him and Aurielia are some of the best scenese in the movie. The one in particular that chokes me up is when they're in the car and he says his favorite part of the day is driving her and she say in Portguguese that leaving him is the saddest part of her day.

Ugh-that movie. It wrecks me.

I read that bit about the Frogs researching the G spot.  Found this gem:

Gynaecologist Odile Buisson went further, saying the British character was responsible for a 'totalitarian' attitude. She said: 'I don't want to stigmatise at all but I think the Protestant, liberal, Anglo-Saxon character means you are very pragmatic.

'There has to be a cause for everything, a gene for everything. It's totalitarian'.

What kind of lunatic says things like this?  Must be a damn Leftist - only such a person would see simply cause-and-effect as a form of oppression.  Next we'll be hearing about the totalitarianism of gravity and the injustice of the laws of thermodynamics. 

We should have worked out a deal where the Germans had to keep France at the end of WW2.  They're a bunch of idiots.

Lets hope so. My brother-in-law had testicular cancer in '08, had one of jewels snipped off and the full chemo deal, so this was the earliest that the docs even said it would be possible.

They weren't actively trying to get pregnant, so my sis is freaking out a little about all the cocktails she consumed during the holidays when she had no idea the little guy was in there.

The "patriarchy" is nothing but a structure - the only women who can't do well in a patriarchal society are the stupid ones who can't figure out how a man's brain works and how to take advantage.  (Like ugly, stupid, leftist women.)  In some Latin American cultures they are quite "macho" and patriarchal, but the women get their way by understanding how to control what the men want and their means of getting it.  The man may be the head of the family, etc, but the woman turns the head.  Few things make a man as happy and content as a good woman who knows how to trick him into thinking he's in charge.

Speaking of military aviation...

Been watching a bit of Military Channel lately (free preview month, woo hoo!). That have a series called Great Planes.

A question for the subset of morons who are into military aviation. When you hear "Great Planes" and "P-39" do you think "WTF"?

good for low altitude ( or ill-suited for high altitude, whichever you prefer).

the p-39 was armored, fairly robust ( even with the weird engine placement), had great field of vision, and was basically designed around a gun. the a-10 of its day. the russians thought it was a Great Plane for blowing shit up.

For the first bunch of years of ClimateAudit's existence, McIntyre was pretty ruthless at keeping the tone professional, not permitting anything that (honest) climate scientists ought to be able to object to.

When Climategate broke and we found out they were a bunch of inbred assholes who weren't going to listen to anyone who hadn't done the CO2 pinky-swear, he loosened up quite a bit.

239 Ladies and gentlemen and others, a year of rote memorization and practice tests paid off in spades this afternoon, and I'm shamelessly eager to announce that I aced the MCAT today. There were fewer than a dozen questions where I wasn't absolutely certain of my answers, and on six of those I was able to confirm my guesses as facts afterward. (The remainder were reasoning questions too complicated to memorize, so I can't recreate and verify my logic, but I feel confident. Dang confident.) There's some subjectivity in grading the essay portion, so no guarantees on that, but I did outline before writing, resisted the temptation to use the  haiku format throughout, entirely avoided the f, c, n and mf words, and cast out all forbidden political thoughts from my mind for a day.

So now only this semester's grades stand between me and evil medical school.

267 As for the P-39 Airacobra.

I believe it has the most air to air kills of any US Aircraft during WWII. Certainly the Soviets loved it more than they did the other USA single engine, single seat fighters we delivered to them. A lot of Russian pilots removed the wing mounted guns to improve its roll rate and a single round from the 37mm gun was sufficient to destroy any single engined aircraft it faced.

And Post-War it was beating P-51s in air races. The Mustang was less than stellar until the Brits mated the airframe with the Rolls Royce Merlin. In Alternate History, imagine the Airacobra mated with the same engine... Of course it probably would not have the range for bomber escort duties.

That's interesting. I noticed Chinese men, especially from Hong Kong, tend to act and look very effeminate, esp to our American perspectives. What puzzles me about what she says is the lack of men. China's been killing girl babies since the dawn of time. They have a severe lack of women in some provinces, so much so that men are raiding neighboring provinces for wives.

283 That's interesting. I noticed Chinese men, especially from Hong Kong, tend to act and look very effeminate, esp to our American perspectives. What puzzles me about what she says is the lack of men. China's been killing girl babies since the dawn of time. They have a severe lack of women in some provinces, so much so that men are raiding neighboring provinces for wives.

Sorry - my phrasing was poor.  I meant to convey that the woman are rare, hence their bargaining power. 

I read a few months ago that there is a brisk business in running flights from China to Viet Nam for the purpose of helping Chinese men finding willing ladies.  I find it amusing that even China has to import some commodities...

The thing has been a work in progress for quite a while, and still no production. The propellers (or whatever) for those things are huge. If they ever do get it running, no one within miles will be able to sleep at night. Those things have to create a ton of noise. Another monument to the stupidity of the left and an ass-kissing government.

I understand your logic re the ratio.  But the bit about the "odd goods" is totally true.  The last woman I dated, oh so long ago, was from AK.  In some ways it was a very good kind of crazy.  She taught me some things I would REALLY like to do again some day.  On the other hand, it turned out she was sort of a loon.  My woman friends still mock me about that sometimes.  For example, one day she got a laugh out of stealing Christmas yard ornaments from around town and planting them in my yard.

Obama, who on Monday presents his budget proposals for the fiscal year starting October 1, has promised to tackle record deficits by initiating a spending freeze on some domestic programs and eliminating programs that are redundant.

The White House gave a preview of some of those cuts in a statement published on its blog on Saturday.

One of the proposals would eliminate the "Advanced Earned Income Tax Credit," which allows eligible taxpayers with children to get a portion of the a tax credit paid out in their paychecks throughout the year.

This is Bambi's idea of "saving" us money -- by finding a program that is "ineffective" and "prone to error" and getting rid of it.  So he's "saving" us money by KEEPING MORE OF IT.

I've made two forays into Pennsylvania and could not believe the night and day difference between the women there and in NY.  Even as a blue state, there were still plenty of red districts and you didn't have to look hard to find friendly people with genuine warmness about them.  Hell even upstate NY was friendlier.  This town is the pits.

Pregnancy tips -- hmm, depends upon the pregnancy: cranberry juice is a good thing, so are the pregger pillows, and a footstool and some peppermint foot cream are a godsend (make big daddy rub your feet -- that's his penance).  And yes, women need to know how to manage men: first rule, let him think he's the king of the house (but the queen is the one everybody has to watch out for -- I refer you to Kipling for this); second, never contradict him in public (see first rule); third, be a loyal partner who abides by the golden rule (and make sure he knows the penalties for not reciprocating); make sure to do pleasant things for him (and praise him highly when he does the same for you -- that way he'll always do the pleasant things).  There ya go, my preggers and marriage tips -- must be working I guess; plenty of kids and still married.

363 Hell even upstate NY was friendlier.  This town is the pits.

As a born and bred city girl, I appreciate NYC's gruff exterior and general unfriendliness. People pass each other on the sidewalk head down, shoulders hunched. No one makes eye contact. I love the anonymity.

When I lived in Upstate, my neighbors waved to me and I looked to see if it was actually me they were waving to because I'd never talked to them before. It freaks me out when people randomly say hello to me when I pass them (unless I'm at a Disney Park.)

373 That's interesting. I noticed Chinese men, especially from Hong Kong, tend to act and look very effeminate, esp to our American perspectives. What puzzles me about what she says is the lack of men. China's been killing girl babies since the dawn of time.

Posted by: wherestherum at January 30, 2010 11:35 PM (gofDd)

I read an article in our local paper about a year ago discussing the "new China". Bascially it was about the young women of China now that divorce their husbands a lot more frequently than before for one reason or another. It said it is very easy to find a new husband or to just stay single and play the field. That says a lot about how far the culture has come. It used to be a big loss of face to not be a virgin when you got married.

Internet dating is a joke.

I found it immensely creepy. However, I have three close friends that are now married that meet their spouses online. What's funny--they lie about how they met the significant other! Not one of them will fess up to having met online.

You're better off with a blind date--and of course we know how well those usually go. I had two just this month. God. Awful. But I'll still try that any day of the week to online dating.

I can understand a taste for the exotic - I like half-asians for that reason.  But I can't tolerate red headed women.  I've never met a red head gal that wasn't a mean spirited, cruel, and spiteful creature.  A dear friend married one - what a horrible mistake!

I think it has something to do with color psychology.  The color red is proven to increase aggression in people.  If you see that every morning in the mirror it probably affects your mind.

Just went this past year. My friends live in Connecticut about 2 1/2 hours from the Spa. It is lovely! The track and the racing is unmatched, and the after-racing revelry is terrific!

The downtown area is a blast at night--you would love it. And yes, you can accompany me to the Spa anytime, m'lady.

And if we see your ex we can offer him up as a broodmare (although I doubt there would be any takers, but it would be fun to see his reaction). *Rummy's ex, this is a stallion we call Ol' Ramrod, and I think he kind of likes you*

443 Okay, since this is Ace, I can be explicit:

My opinion from...experimentation on the G-spot:

Most people don't know that the structure of the clitoris is like an iceberg: You see the tiniest fraction of it, well, above the surface. There is a huge part of it that extends behind the lower anterior wall of the vagina, and a place where it runs the closest is near the bladder sphincter.

I think this is what the G-spot actually is.

Lincoln,

I tried the internet dating crap one time. Met this gal who was about my age, and by her pics wasn't too bad. We had a lot in common, and she was in Springfield (about 90 miles away) so I took a shot.

What she didn't disclose on the dating site was that the pics she posted on the site were about 15 years old and she had had a stroke since then. Holy shit, she looked older than my mom, and walked with a cane! Never Again.

its only the second episode and i need to see the chiropractor for whiplash or a computer IT guy for a logic module upgrade since this is far beyond my paygrade to understand.

Does Moore want me to jerk off to the young girl inside the metal robot body or just the the metal robot cylon with one red eye? Which makes me now think I have something red with one eye and now I'm worried a little girl is IN it!

Get out. Get out. Get OUT.

That's a pretty stupid things for her to say, considering that Palin's favorability ratings are on a steep rise back in Alaska and you never really know how a judge politically leans (even if you figure most of them are going to be lefties).  I'm always dying of curiosity when Beck talks about the folks from Hollowood who call the show saying he's "right on" and that they listen every day but just can't come out of the closet.

598 People always say college is a great way to meet others.

I think that's only true if you do the "college experience" which is living on campus and all that jazz. I commuted to college. Couldn't get out of school fast enough. I only talk to 2 of the maybe 20 people I knew when I was in college. Most people I know meet their lifelong best friends in college.

601 Lincoln, I can't swing a cat in this town without hitting a single straight girl. I should be able to drum you up a blind date in no time. But you'll probably have to travel north of 14th Street. Can you do that without developing a nosebleed?

I could, but only if you could drum up a single straight CONSERVATIVE girl.

True story, I did try to pick up a girl on the upper west side last weekend but the boyfriend got in the way.

I think it works precisely because of who he is. Shatner can't pull it off, no way, no how. The toupee thing works for him.

Sean Connery pulls it off, too. Again, because he's Sean Connery. I also think it's something the Brits pull off better than Americans...

I envy my friends who have that core group of college friends. I seem to flit from group to group as I go through life.

Lincoln, I see one of our more astute morons already suggested hanging out at a Tea Party, but since they're few and far between, relatively speaking, what about your local GOP county (or state) organization?   Not sure how out-of-age-range you might be, but what about college campus Young Republican meetings?  That's as guaranteed conservative as you're going to get. 

Now, if the real Dear Abby was still writing her column, she'd tell you to go to church to meet a nice girl, but that's no guarantee (of meeting a conservative) unless you're of the Evangelical persuasion.  But either way, a dandy day brightener, no?

Posted by: RushBabe at January 30, 2010 08:50 PM (LKkE8)

615 I can see where that might be a problem...

I had to try, oh my God she was so stunning, raven black hair, soft face, doe-shaped eyes.  I was banking on the hope that the guy she was with was her brother or something.  And he just gets all pissy with me.  Dweeb.  I hope he ended up choking on his coffee.

Not I'm not bitter or anything.

623 564 I hate the way manufacturing often only has one company that makes something, like the gas pedals.   Now, the pedals are in probably all the cars and we are going to find out as each car manufacturer checks.  My friend the mechanic thinks it won't be fixed just by fixing the pedal with "a shim".  He thinks it is caused by other things and the gas pedal.

The pedals are made separately by a vendor. Your basic auto assembly plant is just that, assembling parts made by other companies to your specifications. Since a lot of Chinese vendors cut corners in other industries we deal with, I wonder if this one is Chinese too. Odds are that other companies that use them will come up with possible pedal problems too.

I remember the hysteria over Audi's sticky throttle problem in the late 70s which was overblown. This strikes me as overblown hysteria too.

Personally, I hate the "drive by wire" throttles they use nowadays. I just trust cable linkages more.

I could never do it, but I am curious.

681 Rummy:  here's one of her vids:

I clicked on her "Emulating Audrey" vid. I recognized Ventura Blvd before she said it. And she got it wrong. It's Ventura BLVD not AVE.

703 They say HS reunions, college reunions, alumni associatins for frats and sororoities, and accompanying friends to their reunions are also good places to meet people.  People at reunions are looking too so everyone is looking for Mr. or Ms. Right.

704 So - for women - is having a date for occassions some kind of status thing?  Or is there some other motivation?

I think it's so we don't feel so damn lonely going to a wedding alone. Weddings usually have a lot of couples and it's all romantic and crap. I've never had a date for a wedding. I always go by myself or with family.

I know 3 couples getting married this year. I don't know if one of them is actually going to get married. The other two I'm not invited to, but might go to one as a friend's date.

706 RushBabe: I'm at a bad place right now. (early 30s)... I cannot tell you how many times the girl (if there IS one) is ALWAYS married already with several kids. Everyone is married, or hooked with somebody else. The only ones left I can't seem to get along with for one reason or another. --- It's worse when you're 37. Posted by: chemjeff at January 31, 2010 02:20 AM Hey, don't give up. I met my wife when I was 45, and once we were married and she saw what our nanny state with its tax policies did to us, she went from conventional liberal to someone who seems to detest people like Barry and Algore more than even I do. And she is a teacher.

708 curious:  I do, but by definition that's what conservatives tend to be.  I've been traveling more often lately and I find the women were genuinely warmer and friendlier in redder places than blue.  It was an eye opening experience for me.  I was in the Berkshires in December and you could almost feel the malice (they went for Coakley over Brown by 75 to 25 percent).

719 P-39 vs Mustang etc...

On the Eastern Front virtually the entire air war was a few hundred feet above the tanks.  The piss-poor high-altitude performance of the Allison engine in the P-39/P-63 mattered little there, where it would have been crippling in bomber escort duty over France and Germany.   The P-38 used Allisons but with a turbocharger installation unique to that application.

Curtiss spent no little bit of effort trying to wring better altitude performance out of the P-40, they eventually did a Packard Merlin version with a thinner wing, etc. but by then the Mustang was in production.

The Merlin went through a whole lot of versions, the Packard flavors that went into Mustangs were high-level engines but the Brits did a lot of low-altitude Merlins for the Spits in North Africa, etc.

And, of course, it all worked because the US of A flooded Britain in 130-octane avgas with a tetraethyl lead content that'd have greenies chewing paint chips in anger.

Might be an age thing, too. Most of my friends aren't getting married or aren't married period. I guess if all your friends are/getting married you feel more left out and feel the need to show them you have someone, too. Or to stop them from pitying you.

Perhaps for some. Two of these weddings, I know I will be just about the only single girl there my age. Other than that, it'll be like 13 yr old girls vying for the boquet. I just make sure I'm in the bathroom or somewheere else out of sight when that wretched tradition rears its ugly head.

I never used to care but as I get older it's no longer fun thinking "oh I'll just go stag in case I meet someone". It would be nice to just already have the date and not worry about it.

Arg.  Yep - sorry - you're screwed.  The curse of the intentionally dropped bouquet is well known.  The bitter rejection of the act is transferred as a malignant force into the flowers, and it has the power to deny lasting love forever to the next person touched by their tainted petals.

Obama is using our public school system to recruit for his Alinsky-inspired private army.

The St. Crispin's Day speech is good.  The Harfleur speech is more intimidating, if a bit less moto:

"How yet resolves the governor of the town?
This is the latest parle we will admit;
Therefore to our best mercy give yourselves;
Or like to men proud of destruction
Defy us to our worst: for, as I am a soldier,
A name that in my thoughts becomes me best,
If I begin the battery once again,
I will not leave the half-achieved Harfleur
Till in her ashes she lie buried.
The gates of mercy shall be all shut up,
And the flesh'd soldier, rough and hard of heart,
In liberty of bloody hand shall range
With conscience wide as hell, mowing like grass
Your fresh-fair virgins and your flowering infants.
What is it then to me, if impious war,
Array'd in flames like to the prince of fiends,
Do, with his smirch'd complexion, all fell feats
Enlink'd to waste and desolation?
What is't to me, when you yourselves are cause,
If your pure maidens fall into the hand
Of hot and forcing violation?
What rein can hold licentious wickedness
When down the hill he holds his fierce career?
We may as bootless spend our vain command
Upon the enraged soldiers in their spoil
As send precepts to the leviathan
To come ashore. Therefore, you men of Harfleur,
Take pity of your town and of your people,
Whiles yet my soldiers are in my command;
Whiles yet the cool and temperate wind of grace
O'erblows the filthy and contagious clouds
Of heady murder, spoil and villany.
If not, why, in a moment look to see
The blind and bloody soldier with foul hand
Defile the locks of your shrill-shrieking daughters;
Your fathers taken by the silver beards,
And their most reverend heads dash'd to the walls,
Your naked infants spitted upon pikes,
Whiles the mad mothers with their howls confused
Do break the clouds, as did the wives of Jewry
At Herod's bloody-hunting slaughtermen.
What say you? will you yield, and this avoid,
Or, guilty in defence, be thus destroy'd?

859 Yes... pulp fiction is like a drug.  So far, the Cool and Lam series is my favorite (and the only one which I am collecting at the moment).  Top of the Heap sold me, so now I'm on this horrible quest to fill out the entire run in my library.  We do have a collection of various pulps in a giant anthology format (Something like "Black Lizard's Big Book of Pulps!").  It's pretty neat to see how different the authors sound back to back.  I wish I'd known of these books and stories ten years ago.  Would have been able to branch out from Agatha Christie a lot sooner.
I find it funny that Rex Stout was so strongly anti-pulp and anti-AA Faire/Erle Stanley Gardner.  I like both authors and they are actually quite similar if you compare Nero Wolfe to Perry Mason.  Stout was a stuck up commie.

860 Pulp fiction is like heroin. You always need that next fix. I am trying to find two book series that is long out of print. One is the Carrier series by an author named Douglass and the other is the Afrikorps series by an author I totally forgot.

I have a hard time reading classics, too. Tom Sawyer put me to sleep. Dickens has sentences that go on for pages and I just think it's tedious.

I do like Shakespeare's plays, though. MacBeth and Taming of the Shrew are my top favorites. I like Romeo & Juliet the least. Angsty teenagers transcends all time.

865 Truthfully, I can't get through a lot of classics.  Couldn't even as a kid, when I loved Shakespeare and understood it as well.  Moby Dick was boring and depressing.  I only got through it by skimming. 
The House of Seven Gables is like torture for me... can't get back the first page, unfortunately.  Same with Wuthering Heights and books such as Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility (both of which make great movies.. just boring books).  Loved Jane Eyre, though.

"Oh villains, Chiron and Demetrius. Here stands the spring whom you have stained with mud, this goodly summer with your winter mixed. You killed her husband, and for that vile fault two of her brothers were condemned to death, my hand cut off and made a merry jest, both her sweet hands, her tongue, and that more dear than hands or tongue, her spotless chastity, inhuman traitors, you constrained and forced. What would you say if I should let you speak? Villains, for shame, you could not beg for grace. Hark, wretches, how I mean to martyr you. This one hand yet is left to cut your throats whilst that Lavinia, 'tween her stumps doth hold the basin that receives your guilty blood. You know, your mother means to feast with me and calls herself Revenge and thinks me mad. Hark, villains. I shall grind your bones to dust, and with your blood and it I shall make a paste, and of the paste a coffin I will rear and make two pastries of your shameful heads. And bid that strumpet, your unhallowed dam, like to the earth, swallow her own increase! This is the feast I have bid her to, and this the banquet she shall surfeit on... And now prepare your throats."

It was horrific. I don't even remember how it pertained to the subject we were studying in class. It was a twisted, twisted play.

We also read Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House (boring) and Public Enemy (also boring). Ragtime was another one. I don't remember that one much. M. Butterfly was disturbing on a couple of levels. So was Angels in America.

I wish I could remember more of the philosophy I read as a kid.  Once college began, that got lost after the first year.  One regret I still have. 
My parents brought me up on reading philosophies (I remember Hegel and Nietzche were part of that among others) and my second highschool had a great books reading program during which we had great discussions.   My college was more into kissing up to the instructors rather than actually discussing the material.

Looking back on childhood, I feel so much less intelligent than I used to be.

Good Morning Morons; I'm back.  Yesterday during the 50 worse movies thread, as expected I lost power.  Still my area didn't get hit as hard as most, we were sort of a "island in the sea of ice".  Anyway saw this from Fox this morning;

 TARP Cop: Some Bailout Goals Still Unmet

 

The government’s top bailout cop said Sunday that more than a year after the financial crisis hit, many of the goals of Washington’s $700 billion bank rescue program remain unmet and that policymakers still have not addressed fundamental problems that triggered the crisis, leaving the financial system vulnerable to another collapse.

 

Aha I says to myself, finally someone will start screaming about what caused this mess and what needs to be done!  But alas, as I read further I see that this is a controlled leak. They just want more of the same crap that got us here.  E.g. the evil banks are just not loaning enough money to people who can’t pay it back.

 

In a 224-page quarterly report to Congress, Neil Barofsky, the Special Inspector General of the Troubled Asset Relief Program acknowledged that TARP had stabilized the financial system. But he said that it has so far failed to restore consumer and business lending and to significantly prevent home foreclosure.

 

If you are wondering why you never here nothing from the “loyal opposition” on why nothing is being done you need look no further than this paragraph:

 

The top Republican on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Sen. Susan Collins, (R-MA), said she was “deeply troubled” by the report.

 

Another reason why RINOs should be permanently banned from all committee assignments.  Personally, anyone who is only “deeply troubled” by what the communists are doing in the banking industry is part of the damn problem.

More on Banking From Drudge/FT:

 

Bankers in favour of paying global fee

 

Some of the world’s most prominent bankers have come out in favour of a global bank wind-down fund, a concession from the industry after weeks of fighting proposals for new taxes in the US and Europe.

 

One wonders why EVERY damn problem in the world is answered with a new tax when the commie-crats are in charge?

 

Bank too big?????  Answer split the bank into smaller parts (even though that is unconstitutional)?  Of course not, make them pay a new tax!  (which they will not mind at all since they will pass it on to customers).

More stupid news from the local Demoncrap PR rag in Columbia, SC:

 

Is public at risk if nuclear plants are attacked?  

The State

NRC is considering toughening security regulations

I can’t comment too much on this pack of lies due to federal law on discussing safeguards information.  This is what the liberals always count on. They can print any pack of lies they want without worrying about a rebuttal.

Beneath a moonless sky, terrorists rip through the razor-wire fence ringing a nuclear power plant and quickly overpower guards.

How about this?  Beneath a ringing starry sky we waxed poetic while slobbering all over Obama’s balls.   The point is moonless skies have zero to do with security at a nuclear power plant.  “quickly overpowering guards” is just pure bullshit speculation by an ignorant asshole.

Using explosives capable of destroying armored military vehicles, the terrorists blast a hole in the side of a huge concrete canister holding spent nuclear fuel. I can not explain in detail why this is pure bullshit. I will just say this; pure bullshit. No one is sure what could happen next.  Well, first you have to accept the bullshit premise from the previous lie. However, even given the lie postulated above, everyone who knows anything about nuclear power knows exactly what would happen next; mostly NOTHING. Could the attack cause radiation to leak into the atmosphere? Would the release be enough to endanger the public? Should security, which was beefed up at nuclear plants after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, be bolstered even more?

Study the absolute bullshittyness of the sentences above;

 

could printing this pack of lies influence anyone, would the influence be enough to cause them to advocate even more useless regulations, would those additional useless regulations increase the cost of generating electricity, is this article a leak by the Obama administration or is the author another green commie watermelon bastard?

 

This kind of bullshit is why nobody with a lick of sense takes the AGW scam seriously.

 

Repeat: First amendment has been rendered immaterial and irrelavent.

Shorten URL firefox add-in makes shortened links with a right click of the mouse.

Tiny URL Generator lets you make shortened links with a right click of the mouse and also puts a little icon at the bottom right of your browser page -- you highlight the URL you want to shorten, left click the icon and you're ready to paste the shortened URL. I really like that add-on.

Having spent five years in Japan in my twenties and having come back with Mrs D, many years ago, let me offer this unsolicited advice:  Cultural and language differences make things more difficult.  The myth of the submissive Asian woman is just that.  The cute, submissive exterior is a facade.  Is a wimp going to give up her language and friends and home to move to a strange land to be with you? 

You might be as lucky as I was.  There were plenty of other girls in the English classes I taught, but none of them were the one.  Many were quite nice, a few were stunning, and some were spoiled brats.  I chose wisely, but I will be the first to admit it was mostly dumb luck that things turned out so well. 

I don't think the mail order thing will work, but then somebody wins the lottery.

Meh, Pro Bowl -- for some reason the NFL just holds no attractions for me anymore; honestly, watching it makes me hate football (I know, wtf??).  The high school field is a field away from our house -- I find their games more inspiring, if not as killer skillz wonderful.  I don't even watch basketball anymore.  I still can be talked into a pro level baseball or hockey game -- but even there, sometimes the college or minors is a lot more fun to go to.  Pro sports suck anymore.

Back to the topic of last nights conversation:  I see there are some lonely hearts out there...hmmm...Rum, sorry dear, I can't help you; although I do know of an infantryman, nice kid (well, he's a kid to me, he'd be a bit old-ish for you), great family -- how do you feel about farm boys? (he's not tall though, so if you like tall guys I'm afraid he doesn't cut it)  The bonus would be that his mom would probably love you (and that is always a good thing).

Now, for the men:  ok, any of you no older than 25, reasonably good looking, smart (!!! you cannot be stupid, sorry, I have standards here), no couch potatoes, must be willing and able to act like gentlemen, must be willing and able to be staunch, upright family men.  and it would be nice if you were a bit on the tall-ish side because the family has a bit of a shortness curse thanks to my grandpa.  Oh, and you have to be capable of not being intimidated by women in camo who know how to kill things -- probably wouldn't hurt if you were somewhat outdoorsy (did I mention no dumb guys?).

I've got 2 daughters who are getting to that age, one of which has a somebody right now...I don't like the somebody....basta, damn kids!

Alas, I'm sure you're right.  Still, it's a pleasant fiction - harmless enough if one does not act upon it.  Guess we're just going to keep waiting for the invention of convincing fembots. 

Of course, it is possible that Japan's prosperity had some affect on your experience.  The kind of typical mail order scenario I have in mind is one where you rescue the young lady from desperate poverty (rural Viet Nam or some such) and a culture that devalues females - especially those lovely half breeds... 

I visited the D.R. last year, and met many American expat guys there.  Most, even the old guys, were married up to pretty young Dominicanas.  Both seemed happy enough - locally the other women would refer to the phenomenon by saying that so-and-so "found her gringo."

979 -- I can't say I "hate" the guy; under other circumstances I might like him (like if he was wanting to play smoochie with somebody other than my kid).  I certainly no better than to rag on her about him, but still -- Romeo needs to rethink his plans with my kid; he's substandard material imho.  I just gave her the head's up to that...because I'm her mother; I think I'll let Romeo know that I don't approve too...because I'm her mother and am old-fashioned like that.

I suppose I should be happy that she's definitely not the type to hook up with some scrawny, little noogie, and it took somebody older to pull the wool over her eyes, but still.

(I'm old fashioned that way).  Plus, my daughter has been a very, good soldier and a sharp cookie (her XO and the NCOs love her and hold her in high regard; good for her, and she's smart).  This guy, he has really nothing to recommend himself.  Nice enough guy, but not exactly a rocket scientist, nor a particularly good soldier...and he's got an ex-wife...and he's fixed.  WTF!?

and to be quite honest I question his motives and goals with my kid -- no playing smoochie with my kids (I'm tempted to go visit her and yell some sense).

Plus, she is "married" to the U.S., in particular the U.S. Army for another 5 years (at least).  If they wanted her to have a boyfriend they would have issued her one (you try to get this through to your kids....oy).

975 @Vic
"Bank too big?????  Answer split the bank into smaller parts (even though that is unconstitutional)?  Of course not, make them pay a new tax!  (which they will not mind at all since they will pass it on to customers)."

If you add a new class of bankruptcy, and refuse to interfere before they actually declare bankruptcy on their own, it would pass constitutional muster.

I'd add: The entire executive level gets fired, parachutes cut, contracts for stock, etc. voided.

If they're too freaking big to honestly be allowed to fail, then they're too freaking big. By putting in the executive punishment aspects, you get the people driving -all- big companies to be much more careful. Which is the freaking goal. You also put some downward pressure on size.

979 Some Thoughts on Malware

Recently, I was hit with a piece of malware called Antivirus 2009

It got in, and disabled all my executable files (.exe)

You can read about it HERE... And, the in-depth technical aspects At this blog.

Almost all of your applications are executable files, including your browser.

What this means is, once it's in your computer, you can't get rid of it, without wiping out your hard drive, and reloading from scratch... If you're familiar with the DOS, you may be able to save some, or all, of your data, but you'll still have to reload any of your applications - imaging applications, your printer, and other hardware drivers.

It's a lot of work, to get yourself back up to where you were before the attack.

The bad guys are slick.

Let's say, you want to make reservations at a hotel.. You go to Google, and type in "Travelocity" for example... The bad guys have created a FAKE Travelocity page AND been able to get it to the top of the list on Google.

The reason, Google doesn't recognize the site as malicious is, they only scan the page itself, but not the LINKS contained ON the page... You click a link, and BINGO, you're infected... In other words, you are only two clicks away from getting infected.

You don't think you can get it?

My new Malware Protection application just stopped an attack that appears to have originated at Photobucket, through a banner ad.. And, I didn't click the ad, which means, it was most likely activated, simply by a "mouseover"

I'm not saying Photobucket for sure... I have several windows and tabs open.. It could have come from any one of them.. Photobucket was just the window I had on top at the time.

So, with that in mind, I suggest everyone download a protection program.

My local computer guy suggested this:

Malwarebytes.org

You can get a Free Version, but it's recommended you pay for the Full Version.

I don't know what you get in the Free version, but the Full Version can be set to automatically scan your computer as often as you want, (I set mine for once a day) and, it will automatically download updates.

980

I have Malwarebytes and 2 other like programs. It did not prevent me from getting that trojan from an ad on THIS site.  It also would not remove the infected files.

I made the mistake of "clicking" on the x in the popup. The it wouldn't even allow me to stoip it using taskmanager. In the time it took to shutoff my machine it had already severely incted my computer.

I had to wipe the hard drive and reload from scratch.

Posted by: Vic at January 31, 2010 12:19 PM (QrA9E)

I got it once and tried to restart in safe mode, wouldn't let me! I went to a restore point and then killed the infection file by file.

Second time I was able to get Norton and Malware running before AV 2009 initialized and was able to kill the malware that way.

Some Malware merely disables Task Manager and there is a program that enables task manager. But some malware will continue to disable task manager every 15 seconds!

Malware programming should be punishable by death sentence, drawn and quartered is not barbaric enough to sate my blood thirst on this matter.

I switched to Firefox and it appears my  infection rate has dropped by 90 percent.

Posted by: Holger at January 31, 2010 07:29 AM (8NGHm)

999

Yep,

I've gotten into the habit of reloading the page, instead of clicking the "x" to get rid of the popup.. Don't touch it, or mouseover it.

1010 -- ah, there's the rub: she's had to serve under some Westies already (and I may brag: overrode one of them with extreme prejudice, which probably saved the silly fool from getting blown up -- that's one of the people that would recommend her for anything she wanted; he loves her, in a nonromantic you-saved-my ass way).  She is allowing her noncom prejudice to cloud her good sense, oy.  It's Warrant that she wants, and I'm sure she can get it, but Romeo better not foul this up (argh, basta, basta, oy, oy).

Fortunately her sister is a bit more politic and not so stubborn -- but she's not the leader material her sister is (although she is an excellent soldier in her area -- excellent, not just "very good"...just not a leader).
