Saturday Night ONT - tmi3rd, you ignorant slut. [krakatoa]
— Open Blogger

If it's Saturday, it must mean another substitute ONTblogger.

First, let me explain the title of the post. I don't mean to imply that tmi3rd is really retarded. Just that his post was really retarded, sir.

And that he's super easy.

Let's face it, there were countless factual errros in his piece. For instance: None of us care about John Wayne Bobbit, except as a cautionary tale about falling asleep anywhere near his wife, or maybe, even your own. And he prostitutes his posts out to the highest bidder quicker and with more regularity than Sen. Rubio swaps hats on the amnesty train.

And you, like I, are probably wondering how a link to a blogsite run by a demented man can possibly find its onto the hallowed pages of AoSHQ.

Well, let's be clear about just who DDR is, and more importantly, what he does for fun and profit. On the surface, Walt appears to be a mild-mannered, self-described "freelance writer and photographer ". This is a ruse intended to lull you into a false sense of squishy security.

Indeed, the man is in deep with the horrifying underground baby-seal combat tournament scene.

As evidenced by his contribution to last night's ONT, a video of a man squeezing a baby seal (who likely lost too many times in "the icehole" to be of any value) as it shrieked in agony until it literally and repeatedly bursts into flames.

Need more evidence of just how dangerous this man's hobbies are?

Anyone remember when SNL was funny? To be honest, I haven't watched it in, what, over a decade now?

But this was the stuff that kept me up late, and, coincidentally, ties in with today's ONT.

It's amazing how funny someone can be if they aren't worried that the PC brownshirts will bust down their doors for offending the anointed victim group du jour.

Which is a great object lesson, since all I know about SNL recently is that it spins off very occasionally amusing and often openly bigoted hacks who are also full-time presidential (D) ass-kissers and credit-card whores.

For instance, this tit is Jimmy Fallon:

jimmy-fallon_alecbaldwinbadman_19022013.png
I think anyway. That's what the caption says, and hey, all those bigots look the same to me anyway.

Who am I to opine on teh funneh though? I'm just the substitute. Making you laugh isn't a requirement. All we subs need is the ability to fling poo for the pure joy of seeing where it sticks. And if some happened to stick to tmi3rd, well, them's the collateral damages.

This ONT brought to you by Substitute Teachers Annonymous. Don't be that guy:

-That Guy

Oh yea... gotta do that "caturday" thing, yeah? I used to love cats. Then I bought a house that had landscaping that needed tending. I don't mean to start a longbow/crossbow-style debate, but let's face it: Kittehs are teh Kute, but cats are often just plumb evil.

ok, close.

fascinating article on Anthony Watts' website "wattsupwiththat.com" -- here's the tinyurl link  

http://tinyurl.com/qhkm5k2 

and here's the opening couple of paragraphs:

New paper finds that aging weather stations record much higher daytime temperatures, 1.63°C higher than new stations. 

While we are all watching the heat wave developing in the US southwest, here is something to consider. Albedo on the surfaces of weather station shelters changes with time, something I and the volunteers have documented with the Surface Stations project. For example, here’s a aged weather station where the whitewash coating is coming off and the bare wood is becoming exposed:

 
Back in 2007, Pat Michaels wrote in an American Spectator column “Not so Hot“:

“Weather equipment is very high-maintenance. The standard temperature shelter is painted white. If the paint wears or discolors, the shelter absorbs more of the sun’s heat and the thermometer inside will read artificially high. But keeping temperature stations well painted probably isn’t the highest priority in a poor country.” 

Now there is proof that changes in station shield surfaces affect temperature. 

A paper published  in the International Journal of Climatology finds that aging of the solar radiation screens on weather stations is causing a large positive bias in measured temperatures of 1.63°C, which by way of comparison is more than twice the global warming of 0.7°C recorded since the end of the Little Ice Age in 1850.  

(there's more to read but it means the who global warming thing falls apart once again. King Barky will undoubedly not see this in the news.)

idiot alert. No, IDIOT alert:

 Former U.S. President JimmyCarter says religious leaders, including those in Christianity and Islam, share the blame for mistreatment of women across the world.

The human rights activist said Friday religious authorities perpetuate misguided doctrines of male superiority, from the Catholic Church forbidding women from becoming priests to some African cultures mutilating the genitals of young girls.

Libs who pull this piece of rhetorical stupidity show they give no credence to the true horrors perpetuated against women by Islam.Muslims slice the clitorides and labia off screaming girls with bits of metal and glass with no anesthesia. Sometimes they close up the wound with thorns if sutures aren't available. It happens to 65% to 95% of women in Egypt. Such mutilated women will never know sexual pleasure and are subject to disease and to difficulty in childbirth. The fact that the second worst president in history makes an analogy between this and the work roles of women in the Catholic faith shows he doesn't give a shit about mutilated brown girls.

The African-American community sold itself to the left twice.

The Great Depression took our 80% vote share from them down to 40ish, then LBJ slowly bled it out.

PJ also omits the willful bias in the academy and the media.

PJ I spoke that we were aiding Muslim illegal immigrants in Bosnia/Kosovo where were you?

PJ are you using your pages to attack Obama's use of US might again in the service of Islam?

Instead of wallowing PJ or asking Obama to help you Carbon Monoxide poison the movement why don't you hold the bastards on the hill to task?

PJ's piece was from 2008 "we's doomed!"

We've been doomed since arguably 2006 Linc.

My beef with PJ such as it is is he needs to be pushing hard against the types of actions we're in that he landed blows on Clinton on in "Give War a Chance."

Read his piece it's a rebuttal and satire of it.

He was emoing out pretty hard.

We damn near beat the bastard in '12 in a straight fight I think we would've.

Believe it or not Linc this is me trying to get optomistic.

181 Dennis Miller (1985–1991) From the Wiki: In 1985, Lorne Michaels returned to produce the show, bringing the Weekend Update name with him. The new anchor was Dennis Miller, who remained in the chair for six years, the longest run for any one Weekend Update anchor. Miller opened the segments by saying "Good evening, and what can I tell ya?" and signed off by saying "Guess what, folks? That's the news, and I am outta here!" He would then scribble nonsense on his script, sometimes throwing it into the air. Miller left in 1991. --So, no Dennis in the last two decades.

217 Well, here's the answer from Wiki: Kevin Nealon (1991–1994) Kevin Nealon took over with his "Mr. Subliminal" character and as the straightman in many highlights such as "Operaman" and "Cajun Man" (with both characters being played by Adam Sandler), and Chris Farley's "Bennett Brauer" character. Nealon had a three-year stint at the Update desk before requesting his departure, as he felt his time behind the desk was drawing away from other acting opportunities on the show. Nealon signed off with the tagline "I'm Kevin Nealon, and that's news to me".

I walked in on the very end bit of it where the judge was handing out a very strict no contact order and then asked but what if something happens to the kids. Mother's lawyer said he can call me and put down in front of the father his business card. Judge asked what if it's 3 am and attorney assured her that the card had his cell phone on it and he answers at all hours. Father of the Year pushed the card back and announced he didn't want it. Judge asked how is he going to find out if there's a problem with the kids and Father said his lawyer can call. There was further discussion about it and the conclusion was that health care providers could notify the parties separately. Yeah. People are fucking awesome. They so are.

281 I think it is not so much a problem with filthy humor being in appropriate for women as it is that the women that rely upon filth as a staple of their routines do it as a substitute for humor; it is less humorous and more shocking. if a nice young lady gets up and describes how she spent all afternoon geting sodomized while cleaning the toilet and on the phone with her mom - which some comeidenne had in her routine - it is shocking and sort of amusing. If she spends an hour going over the same ideas in different situations, it is simply boring and vulgar.

That's why I've never liked female comedians.  ALL of their humor is sex-based.   That was the refreshing thing about Ellen DeGeneres    when she did standup.   Probably because she was a lesbian, but her routine was completely devoid of sex jokes.    She was actually FUNNY.



Then she went all    "Hey, I'm out of the closet!"    and got boring.

But he is a worthless piece of shit cuz he wont do it, because if he does his place of employment wont give him that raise that will enable him to actually pay child support and eat something besides ramen noodles or beans and rice .

Oh but wait, he had to buy a new tire last week and is one month behind on his child support so he has to pay an extra 20% to the state that doesnt even go to the kid, ever, but hey, he can take off an hour early anytime cuz we all know how employers give a shit about guys taking off early, oh wait they do when you dont work a woman's job................

Well, it was a pleasurable business.   Three of 'em came into our yard-  usually I would let the dog chase them off, but he's getting kind of old.  Two of them ran right off, but the third turned and stared me down, drooling like that seal up top, with the same look in its eyes.  I almost turned tail, but manned up and stood my ground, revving the engine a couple of times.  I felt like Cro-cow-dile Dundee!

361 Here's a funny story about divorce. Funny now anyway. Met this girl on vacation in Cali in about '89. Although she had two kids, .5 and 1.5yrs old, (father doing a prison stint for robbing his own dads store) spent the summer with her then she had to go back to OH. We kept talking and decided I'd move to Ohio. The two kids never got a dime of support, and the father never contacted them. I raised them as my own. So fast forward about 20 years. We own our house with 50k owed on it so about 75k equity. The two kids and the one we had after that are now over 18. One kid gets a letter from what looked like was written by a crack whore, complete with doodles spread around in the letter. It was written by the real fathers girlfreind, asking the kid if she would come to a "getting out of prison" party for him. No reasoning why he hadn't bothered to contact her for 20 years even though finding her would have taken him one phone call at any time. Long story short, the wife was back living with him within the month, asking me to sell the house so they can use her share to buy a house. She had no job, as she worked in the business I owned, if you call 20 minutes a day "work". I told her to fuck off - moved out of the house, and let it be foreclosed, just to fuck up her credit, even though it was also fucking myself. All of the equity was eaten up in the fees of the foreclosure, I assume, because I answered none of the subpoenas that they sent. I didn't even leave a forwarding address, or a address change at the post office. The kicker is, after marrying this guy, she's now found out he's pretty much dumb as fuck, and suspects he's gay, and is getting divorced.

I know i haven't seen anything yet, but i'm trying. 6 and 10, so i only have the future to fear. I may still run away screaming by the time they're , but we'll see. Saving grace is that they won't even remember the toolbag sperm donor in a few years. Certainly not my boy.

409 The Far Side was syndicated in 1980 by Chronicle Features. Its first appearance in the Chronicle was on January 1, 1980. It ran for 15 years until Larson retired, with his final strip published on January 1, 1995. Larson thought the series was getting repetitive and did not want to enter what he called the "Graveyard of Mediocre Cartoons."

429 Funniest divorce story I witnessed was a marriage that lasted approx 1 weekend. A semi-unstable lady I know met some guy at the bar, was married about two days later and moved into his TRAILER. While he's at work she notices a huge pile of collection notices in the trailer, and is wondering if all those debts are now half hers. So he comes home from work and she tells him "we have to talk about something". His instant reply was "I don't care what anyone in the trailer park told you, I'm NOT the park peeping Tom! Immediate annulment came next.

Personally, I've been burned by enough bullshit divorce stories from people I trust to know that unless I have firsthand knowledge of any of the above, I'm going to take it with a grain of salt when someone tells me. Then, if I ever get that proof, the next thing I'm going to wonder is if the "aggrieved" party has any little skeletons in their closet. A couple of decades of some family bullshit and several years being a senior Marine SNCO having to deal with the troops' marital circus bullshit has given me my outlook. But that's just me.

Well it serves them right for trying to milk a bull.

Animals can be categorized thusly:

 

1. Those that don't want to kill you, and don't

 

2. Those that don't want to kill you, but could.

 

3. Those that want to kill you, but can't.

 

4. Those that want to kill you and will.

 

 

The first category is the only kind I will let into my house.

most cows are really dangerous! they are big, fast, and some are ill tempered to boot. one could kill you just by the person in question getting inattentive about where they were standing and the cow getting mildly startled. then of course there is malice. I have seen some longhorn steers and spanish bulls full of evil malice and fast as racehorses over short distance.

 - I never want to kill somebody
 - If somebody takes away my means of life for their own selfish purposes, or especially from my family, I will sacrifice my life to kill them, and I will do it with glee and a song in my heart, because life here is nothing but a burden and I would be happy to die for a cause I believe in, which there are precious damn few.

Wanna see something MILITANT? 

Behold the Mexican national anthem, which is pretty hardcore for a country which has never won a war:


Mexicans, at the cry of battle
lend your swords and bridle;
and let the earth tremble at its center
upon the roar of the cannon.

Your forehead shall be girded, oh fatherland, with olive garlands
by the divine archangel of peace,
For in heaven your eternal destiny
has been written by the hand of God.
But should a foreign enemy
Profane your land with his sole,
Think, beloved fatherland, that heaven
gave you a soldier in each son.

CHORUS

II

War, war without truce against who would attempt
to blemish the honor of the fatherland!
War, war! The patriotic banners
saturate in waves of blood.
War, war! On the mount, in the vale
The terrifying cannon thunder
and the echoes nobly resound
to the cries of union! liberty!

CHORUS

III

Fatherland, before your children become unarmed
Beneath the yoke their necks in sway,
May your countryside be watered with blood,
On blood their feet trample.
And may your temples, palaces and towers
crumble in horrid crash,
and their ruins exist saying:
The fatherland was made of one thousand heroes here.

CHORUS

IV

Fatherland, fatherland, your children swear
to exhale their breath in your cause,
If the bugle in its belligerent tone
should call upon them to struggle with bravery.
For you the olive garlands!
For them a memory of glory!
For you a laurel of victory!
For them a tomb of honor!

588 How's this for a theory? I just watched the Zimmerman re-enactment video. That, combined with recent witness testimony has me pretty convinced that he didn't set out to kill Trayvon Martin. The charges filed don't seem to be borne out by facts, testimony or described circumstance. Having been through a similar situation (thankfully, there was an important "attempted" in my case, as well as an eventual "charges dismissed") it looks like the prosecutor's office over-charged. I could see a potential manslaughter conviction, but not murder. [This is all assuming that there isn't any massive surprise in upcoming weeks.] So, is the prosecution making the best of a lousy hand (with the knowledge that the DOJ and nation are watching), or are they fumbling this a bit, BECAUSE they didn't originally intend to pursue charges against Zimmerman? Or some combination?

647 O'Rourke is full of it.

First of all, neocons are not conservatives.

They're pre-Carter Libs with a patriot streak. My own dad was one for awhile; he used to be a liberal until the government started saying that all the money was theirs, then he voted for Reagan. But other than being for muscular policy and 'keep yo hands off my money' he didn't really change his politics. My mother, the same.

In other words, most 'conservatives' of the type PJ is getting all up in arms about are just pre/post Liberals. Maybe they will become more conservative over time, but it will not be enough, fast enough. It's great if by the time he's 90 the guy supports traditional marriage, is pro-life, wants a flat tax, owns 3 guns, etc. But if when he's 35 his feeling about any of those issues is at all ambivalent, it's too little, too late.

'conservatism with age' is just buyer's remorse. I know some of these people, and I know that their conservatism is purely reactionary, which means it is unstructured and undisciplined, it has no meta-politic. So maybe they come out against abortion because someone they know got sterilized by having two abortions. Maybe they come out against government regulations because they actually try to start a business in MD. So on, so on.

The argument about freedom he's trying to make is bunkum. Socialism looks like freedom for a lot of people, doesn't it? Maybe they look at 'work hard and maybe do well' freedom and 'be lazy and get taken care of' freedom and human nature, especially that of modern men who don't know their neighbor from their buttcrack, inclines towards the path of least resistance.

If he's right, we would have won if we all just became pro-abortion fiscal conservatives! Because fiscal conservatism, obviously, is real conservatism that sells.

Underestimating the latent social envy of the common man is a dangerous game PJ.

Socialism 'works' only in that people want it and vote for it because of envy. Beyond that, obviously, it doesn't work. There's an analogy here for the thing you always get because it seems like a good idea at the time, but it totally wrecks you and you can't remember that until you get wrecked. That's socialism in democracy.

The difference being that there are times when even the most dyed-in-the-wool pro-life person would concede that abortion may sadly be necessary -- e.g. during a 1-year course of treatment during which the infant has an 80% chance of death or disfigurement and the mother would not be expected to survive pregnancy (conception at the onset of Ebola, or some similar horror).



Whereas a government that told you not to rob banks would certainly not tell you that you should.....since it has a fully staffed department of unionized Federal workers whose job it is to loot banks.

But here is a really disquieting bit of datum - $553.8 million contract to Rosoboronexport for 30 Mi-17 helicopters on June 16, 2013. Rosoboronexport is an agency of the Russian government, which also provides military weaponry to the Assad regime in Syria.

To put my response another way -- and stay a bit less silly about it -- there are laws about choices between social order and anarchy and laws about things that are preferences, albeit solidly-anchored ones. Both flavors come in serious and significant/trivial but enforceable subflavors.



As an example, driving on the right side of the road is not an earthshattering moral dilemma -- and, in fact, is somewhat arbitrary -- but is a serious and significant contribution to social order, as anyone who has encountered a wrong-way driver knows. Abortion, by contrast, is a moral, ethical, theological, and demographic bag o' worms....but does not directly change anything in the social order beyond the child's future.



Robbing a bank is more like driving a car -- reasonably subject to the government's police power because it keeps the social order running -- than restrictions on abortion -- which is a very touchy use of the government's police power because the effects are more personal than societal.



And it's not like we haven't seen the hand of government on both sides of the scale -- with forced sterilizations in the US ("The United States was the first country to concertedly undertake compulsory sterilization programs for the purpose of eugenics. The heads of the program were avid believers in eugenics and frequently argued for their program. It was shut down due to ethical problems. The principal targets of the American program were the mentally retarded and the mentally ill, but also targeted under many state laws were the deaf, the blind, people with epilepsy, and the physically deformed."), and natalism in Romania ("Concerns over aging populace resulted in reproductive freedoms being severely restricted. Wishing to increase the birth rate, in 1966, Ceauşescu promulgated the decree 770 restricting abortion and contraception: only women over the age of 45 who had at least four children were eligible for either; in 1989, the number was increased to five children.[14] Mandatory gynecological revisions and penalisations against unmarried people and childless couples[clarification needed] completed the natalist measures.")

A good friend of mine is pro-life but doesn't want abortion outlawed

because "any government that tells you that you can't have an abortion

can turn around and tell you that you must have one"

But see that is just taking the paranoia too far.

Based
on this 'argument', you can also claim "any government that tells you
that you can't rob banks can turn around and tell you that you must rob a
bank"

it's just dumb

And yet, Red China exists and strictly enforces a one child policy by the use of forced abortion. It may be dumb, but that doesn't mean there is not a real world example.

Posted by: jc at June 30, 2013 01:55 AM (PlzOe)

 

Its really easy to point out the idiocy of the original claim though.  Any government that tells you its legal to have an abortion can force you to have one.  Any government that tells you you can't drive over 65, can tell you that you must drive over 65. 

 

No matter what the law is there could always be an inverse law.

734 The *point*, is that if you are going to argue "any government that can outlaw X, also has the power to force you to do X", is true no matter what the value of X is, even for things which ought to be outlawed under any reasonable system of government (i.e. robbing banks).  So that argument fails for something like abortion.

744 The argument about government having the power to ban X / government having the power to coerce you to do X is an argument about *government power*, not about the nature of what X is.  So unless the person making the argument is a full-bore anarchist then the argument is just a lazy cop-out in order to avoid the merits/demerits of wanting to ban X.

Whereas I'm taking this to a different place -- a government that has the right to force you one way on a moral choice that could be reasonably taken another whilst maintaining social order....might just as unreasonably force you to choose the other way on the same moral choice. Social order isn't damaged either way, they're just jerkin' people around.

Some tips for dealing with this kind of heat.

1.  Drink lots of water.

2. Do not do any heavy exertion activities that can be put off until October.

3. Stay in the shade as much possible.

4. Check the interwebs for a house in a more hospitable climate.

757 You actually start getting into some weird effects on the high side of 115. Walking through a door, you feel like there's an air curtain -- but it's only the temperature gradient. You are constantly sweating (though you may be dry) because you would die if your core body temp rose to ambient. You get a little "drifty" about avoiding contact with things. Your sneakers start to stick to the ground.....

772 Purp.  That seems a bit of a steep price for 30 copters, almost $18.5 million each. 

But what is really insane is the $18.3 million price tag for each PC-12 COIN turbo-prop the US is selling to Afghanistan.  A prop plane.  But this COIN program is also mired in controversy since Hawker Beechcraft proposed an attack version of their T-6 Texan II.  When Sierra/Embraer won the contract with the A-29B, Hawker Beechcraft filed a complaint with the GAO and then later sued when the GAO ruled against them.  Which caused the whole contract to be canceled until Embraer won a new contract that has resulted in these aircraft.   Well it used to be a $355 million contract but now only $219 million.  12 planes instead of 20.

Well I think that is too darn pricey.  And then I look at Iraq who is paying $46 million per F-16 for its follow on order of 18 F-16s.  Geez.

774 My little project du jour -- we rebuilt our kitchen in 2004, and it now features an undermount sink with a granite countertop.....and it seems that they didn't completely seal the area where the fixture-holes in the sink are, so water can go over the granite and come out above the sink. Just squirted and smoothed a little bit o' silicon in there.




Pro-tip -- whenever you're sealing the top rim of an undermount sink, put something heavy in the sink until it dries. That'll put just a smidge of compression on the seal.

792 I'm guessing only so it was visible to an inspector.  Any reason i shouldn't pull it out and just tie it to a ground rod six feet from the panel?

Interior metal piping (water/gas/etc) needs to be "bonded" (ie. lands on the panel ground) with a wire sized to the highest amperage circuit that might conceivably ever short against it.  Normally, a 10ga is sufficient unless there's a heavy feeder to a subpanel close to the metal pipe...then you'd go up to the gnd wire size for that feeder.

Metal piping coming through from the EXTERIOR and penetrates to the interior that has at least 10' of earth contact MUST become part of the premise grounding system -- i.e. those pipes must be tied in with any ground rods, concrete encased electrodes, ground plates, etc.

I had a building once with 6 freaking metal pipes making basement penetration that I knew were at least 10' long.  All 6 got tied together with 2 ground rods and into the panel.

So...that wire to the boiler piping is necessary as a "bond", but its NOT considered part of the service's grounding electrode system.

IOW - don't fuck with it, it needs to be there. 

If the crib has cast iron drain pipes anywhere, consider bonding them too.  My uncle was getting shocked in his shower some years ago.  When I bonded the cast iron drains, the shocks went away.  Probably some bad UF or his electric fence was causing it, but the bond makes everything equipotential eliminating any voltage deltas

806 800 Probably 25 years ago, cth?

Code in my area states 2 ground rods, 6+ feet apart. Wouldn't be hard to do at all. May even be better?
I'm only asking because i've been cleaning up the crawlspace. Digging a french drain and insulating. I could easily eliminate that ground wire while i'm at it.

809 two rods 6' apart is the minimum. 

The further apart they are, and the more of them there are, the more effective they'll be, its just a bit more wire.  If there's an area of lawn that's damper than most (gutter outlet areas, something under the edge of a roof valley, etc), that's the best place to locate them.

If you use exothermic weld "shots" for the rod/wire connection rather than acorn clamps, the inspector will be impressed...and the welds never loosen up.

Pro-tip for driving rods -- soak the area with water, before and during pounding one in.  The water acts like a lubricant.  If the ground is soft enough, you can twirl the rod like a fire-starting stick and it'll slide right in.

813 So, Purp -- while we're talking electric....



Is there any reason, besides (minimal) cost, to not put EVERYTHING in subpanels? As in, drop from utility to meter, several big breakers going to subpanels, then the entire house gets wired to the relevant subpanels?



Truth be told, I worry about working in the main box, lest I stumble into something and go up in a puff of smoke like some Star Trek redshirt caught in a phaser beam, but have no problem doing home-runs to subs that I can turn completely off.



I vaguely recall that the rules are different on grounds, though.

828 Is there any reason, besides (minimal) cost, to not put EVERYTHING in subpanels?

Nope.  That's my preferred design approach...and its actually faster to install than dragging ladders back and forth a million times all over the house.  Only a small handful of big ones, than a bunch of small short ones to the areas served.

It also makes additions a lot easier if you get big enough subs that they aren't stuffed.  Shoot a spare 3/4" or 1" EMT up into the attic/basement into a blank 6" square e-box and you can add new circuits with ease.

All single phase sub panels MUST be 4-wire feed (phase/phase/neutral/gnd).  People are fond of cheating and running a 3-wire SE cable and tying the sub's neutral/gnd together, but that's illegal and will fail an inspection.  Do NOT use the panel neutral bonding screw or bonding strap on a subpanel.  Gnd must be isolated from neutral

I'm going to have to clarify with the guys that put my kitchen subpanel in (which is ok, they're neighbors). I had thought that they casually said that the ground in the sub tied back to a screw in the main that wasn't exactly the big ground for everything, but would suffice for a local ground.....and felt uneasy. But everything passed inspection and the guys have a really good rep around here. And, BTW, I've got both phases at my sub.



They may well have said that the neutral in the sub is tied back to a screw in the main that isn't the big ground for everything, but I was distracted by something else.

You could do a critical circuits subpanel, then have the feeder for that be among the transfer switch box's breaker set that gets flipped from gen/poco.

You don't want to be mixing low voltage DC and AC in the same conduit or wall box.  They can be mixed in a wall box, BUT it must be one of the special ones with an insulated physical divider plate between VL and AC sections.

As a practical matter, to reduce noise you want to keep LVDC away from AC and when they must physically cross paths, do it at a 90 degree angle.

If you want to do a classy job, the LVDC/ CATV/LAN can be run through EMT which will cut noise vulnerability considerably if its near Romex or stuff piped in PVC.  If the EMT runs with LV are longish, ground them. 

The NEC allows for ungrounded "short" lengths of ENT for "physical protection"

Shooting phone/lan across an attic through EMT is a joy compared to the rats nest you usually see...

Why,  in the Mayor's office alone, there is the biggest FIRE-AUNT Mound in the history of the city!!!

I do hope 415-A lives up to my projected potential.....

886 " In my humble experience, EVERYTHING is a rats nest, " Exactly why i've spent so much time under the house. That's what brought up my original question. I could make a fortune just cleaning up after the Jacklegs that "worked" on my block.

887 Fire Aunts? I have some hot relatives, but that is really retarded, sir.

I recently converted from Comcast to AT&T U-Verse.....and the installer, elated to not have to crawl under the house a zillion times (because most things have been pre-labeled), sat down and labeled the crap out of everything he did. It's Giuliani's "broken-window theory" writ small. If 90% of your house is labeled, and you take a personal approach with new workers, they tend to label their shit.

You should also look at how workers "labeled their shit" in the time of Mesopotamia.....

 

Very COOL looks that was, and we still get to see it....so many thousands of years later...

Ad,

Can always count on you to keep me from steppin over the line,

 

Yet what line do I be crossing so late in the thread? I was launching out a tongue imbedded in cheek play on words and thought I had a (fair) line on the semantics/humor reveal. Shoot, after so many years here, maybe I am too far behind the curve.

 

What say you?

I have to end my parley with this thread now.

Back in the day, Ace allowed us to "Free Range" across the events of the day and to be as "Pirates" in our observations of the day to day of this our Country and it's plus and minus workings.

 

Over the recent times, it has become apparent, that sites such as this are under attack for expressing opinions that run counter to the "          ."

That said,  We all must be aware that these times are not like times pre 2008.

I for one, having served in this Country's Military, and having a son who gave full measure 2003-2011 and 5 combat  tours, watch now with a sense of ...."dread" the present status

"I'm done......

I did so want to just go to bed, drink the last of my glass and be done with these postings.

Yet, I am haunted now,  I am walking the beaches of Normandy in 1995, with my 2 sons who are most content to splash amongst the tide pools, (children they are) and unaware of what happened  on this place....I, on the other hand have absorbed all the history of this place, have read EVERY  text and story about this historic patch of ground and am in awe that I am privileged to be in this very place where such history happened. The Sun is setting...I take a picture of my shoe print on Omaha beach, my boys want to play in the tide pools...for a little while longer...children love to play in water........
