Quotes of The Day

Quote I

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something. Neil Gaiman

Obviously Mr. Gaiman has never seen me while composing The ONT.


Quote II

Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man. Benjamin Franklin


Quote III

To be an ideal guest, stay at home. E. W. Howe

Do you relate to this quote?


Quote IV

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

A little geography, some current events and a bit of history all wrapped up in one map. Interactive map of world wide disputes. Hint, Lutherans aren't the trouble makers they are made out to be.

Any "journalists" in trouble regarding fake news? No. Not really.

FAKE NEWS: “Not a single journalist exposed in Wikileaks was punished. Some were promoted. All will get awards.” Think of them as Democratic Party operatives with bylines and you won’t go far wrong. That’s how their colleagues and bosses think of them.


Do you want to be a journalist? You can become an anchorman and tell big whoppers report the news. Journalism class taught by Dan Rather.

Course Description
Whether you’re an avid consumer of the news or just beginning your journalism career, renowned news anchor Dan Rather shares his first-hand experiences to guide you through the 21st century state of journalism.


In this course, Dan teaches invaluable foundations on great writing, the essentials of telling a good story, and how to remain calm and captivating on camera — useful skills for anyone fascinated by the power of the news or anyone who wants to contribute to serious journalism. Dan’s rich history and extensive knowledge of journalism, paired with practical, hands-on exercises, creates a unique learning opportunity and rare insight from an American legend.


Granted Christmas has passed. But, it's never too late to learn how to make feminist crafts. NSFW-Language

Tonight's Musical Interlude


Should the government be able to track you, your movements, your car? Fairfax County, VA and the use of their license plate reader is headed for a courtroom showdown.

Some police departments took heed of Cuccinelli's opinion. Others ignored the AG's advice completely. Fairfax was one of them. Harrison Neal, a resident whose license plate showed up in the county's database, challenged the county's policy on privacy grounds. Last month Fairfax Circuit Court judge Robert Smith issued a summary judgment in the county's favor. The Virginia Supreme Court will soon decide whether to review the matter. It certainly should.


Speaking of government, what are the odds someone is terminated for gross negligence? Personal data of thousands released by State of Nevada.


As a kid I remember snow tires with studs and chains on tires during the winter. Now, Zip ties, what can't they do? Well, not snow chains.

See, these aren’t the kind of zip-ties you’d use to squeeze a bundle of cables together or re-attach a torn-off bumper or use as a tourniquet when you need to mainline some truck stop diner coffee. (Heck, is there anything zip-ties can’t do?)

The orange pieces of plastic in this photo are actually being used as intended. Sort of. They are traction-augmenting devices, but they seem to be only designed for getting a car out of a bog rather than running for extended periods at highway speeds.


The last 8 years have been hell on our Armed Forces. From work place violence to bad conduct discharge for display of Bible verses. The current Commander in Chief has been bad news. The ONT is surprised pilots got to dress as Santa while bombing the Junior Varsity team over Christmas.

santa pilot.jpg


Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz gave Christmas gifts. He didn't give just any present to his offensive line. He handed out customized shotguns for Christmas.

Although The ONT is not an Eagles fan. The ONT is really starting to like this kid from North Dakota.


Food for thought, who are the biggest heroes of 2016? 5 heroes of 2016. An interesting link with some provocative views. And no, KDW is not mentioned.

Tuesday night The ONT covered what to do if you broke through the ice on a body of water. Tonight we will cover how to escape a sinking car. Hey, we look out for you too.


Two geniuses. One Genius Award. They will need to learn how to share.


There are some Grinchs here who will Ba-Humbug the following story. Today's Feel Good Story of The Day.


Tonight's ONT has been brought to you by the New and Improved AoSHQ Employee Handbook.

13 "Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man."  - Benjamin Franklin



I love this quotation - Mr. D would approve this message.


So I'm going to give up smoking before my birthday.  What was the name of the book that helps you to hate smoking?

FWIW I don't know my neighbors, so I have no issues with them.  That could change, so I keep my distance.

Posted by: Miley, Duchess of Double-Barrelling at December 29, 2016 05:06 PM (tHwdc)

14 Of course I'm worried. This computer is doing weird and strange things it didn't used to do. Software that once worked fine is crashing. Blog sites I visit are 'unavailable'. Has my computer been hacked? Has the internet been compromised? Is it the Russians? I am very worried. I don't want to loose my family photos, and I don't want my bank account hacked. I blame Obama.

16 "Not a single journalist exposed in Wikileaks was punished. Some were promoted. All will get awards." If you're a journalist, the only way to avoid being an "award-winning" one is to commit suicide.

46 Miley, I was introduced to George Dickel over 20 years ago. My favorite bourbon is Bulleit. Jim Beam is always a solid choice - that's IF I have more that $18.01 in my pocket. For bottom shelf, I go with Colonel's Pride. Orange label, so I assume it's an Old Grandad knockoff.

47 The same party that perpetuated slavery, terrorized their political opponents with violence, sent blacks to different water fountains and turned hoses on them, and backed Communism across the world while a hundred million were slaughtered, now wants to bring in countless unvetted "refugees", terrorize their political opponents with violence and start a f*cking war with Russia.

53 Just read the FBI/DHS report on Russian cyber activity. Bottom line: it says the Russians got stuff from Democrats using phishing Nothing about Trump, WikiLeaks, DCLeaks, voting machines Talk about "weak tea" Now we know that Hillary lost because John Podesta and the DNC are "techno-assholes" and got suckered into a phishing scam. How WikiLeaks got the emails goes unexplained

57 The Democrat Party I remember reading a news account of a political rally back during Jefferson's campaign and two old guys of some influence were watching the whisky drummers and party organizers stirring up the patriotic furor of the crowd over some issue or another and one of the two says to the others, "This democracy business will get out of control, and we will be lucky to live through it." I think it's in the introduction to the Federalists Papers.

81 I met Neil Gaiman once. Super-nice guy. I was working at a comic-book shop where he was doing a signing event. He asked me to get him a bottle of water, and it felt like he was the one doing me a favor by asking me. I wasn't even really even a fan of his; Sandman tended to be a little pretentious for my liking.

But Gaiman is just that kind of guy; really nice and likeable.

85 My computers have been behaving strangely of late, too... I'm blaming Microsoft and its shenanigans with Windows Update:  I open Firefox and instead of my chosen homepage, I get msn .com, and other sporadic glitches that I can't pin down.

100 53 Just read the FBI/DHS report on Russian cyber activity. Bottom line: it says the Russians got stuff from Democrats using phishing Nothing about Trump, WikiLeaks, DCLeaks, voting machines Talk about "weak tea" Now we know that Hillary lost because John Podesta and the DNC are "techno-assholes" and got suckered into a phishing scam. How WikiLeaks got the emails goes unexplained Posted by: SMOD at December 29, 2016 10:19 PM (e8kgV) Not only Phishing.... but Phishing using a known tool that every script kiddy in the world has access to... But... its now being treated like an Act of War... Note... when the Office of Personnel Management was hacked, and millions of Americans security information was out there... there was no retribution... But the DNC gets hacked... ie a non Governmental email system for politicians gets 'hacked'.... and its a Casus Belli Act of War! And REPUBLICANS are onboard with the meme...

Posted by: ThePrimordialOrderedPair at December 29, 2016 05:41 PM (zc3Db)

123 I'll tell you the place where I really grew to appreciate Neil Gaiman's writing... his novel, American Gods.

It was 400+ pages in before he gave you a real idea of what the main character Shadow looks like.

Just based on the character's dialogue and the vague hints about his behavior and size, and how people reacted to him, though, I imagined Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the "role".

I later learned that that was exactly who Gaiman envisioned as Shadow. So, well done, Neil! You even did it in a way that made me feel smart coming to that conclusion.

226 Some sage, super-spy counter-intelligence advice from the geniuses at the FBI and DHS .... Educate users to be suspicious of unsolicited phone calls, social media interactions, or email messages from individuals asking about employees or other internal information. If an unknown individual claims to be from a legitimate organization, try to verify his or her identity directly with the company. Do not provide personal information or information about your organization, including its structure or networks, unless you are certain of a person's authority to have the information. Do not reveal personal or financial information in social media or email, and do not respond to solicitations for this information. This includes following links sent in email. Pay attention to the URL of a website. Malicious websites may look identical to a legitimate site, but the URL often includes a variation in spelling or a different domain than the valid website (e.g., .com vs. .net). LOL.

234 Does anyone speak Hebrew here right now? I just read an article about Israel retiring 90 F-16 A/B "Netz" aircraft from the IAF. I do not know what Netz means. Anyone around that can share me some knowledge? Posted by: Bill R. at December 29, 2016 11:04 PM (jKUeC) It doesn't sound like a Hebrew word. Probably either a name or an acronym (Israelis love acronyms). Offhand I don't recognize it. What's the actual sentence (link to the Hebrew)?

They make their own F-16I, the "Barak" (lightning) which is like an F-16 on steroids.

265 Thanks all for puttin' me some knowledge about the Netz. I found the article on Yahoo and one of the lines in it was that, "The F-16A/B Netz is a General Dynamics-made fighter aircraft originally delivered in 1980 that served as a predecessor to the Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon." That quote, and I called them on it, is either first class bullshit or piss poor journalism. But I really wanted to know the meaning of that word. Of course, all F-16's are known as Vipers!! I worked 78-001, which was the first production F-16 and now resides on a stick at Langley, Virginia. By the time it was ready for retirement, it was very maintenance intense. Those old A models were just not as strong as the C models.

266 I mostly lurk here. I love reading what you have to say, but rarely have anything interesting myself . . . Once a month or so, I read the online newspaper from the small town my husband and I lived in for 10 years a couple of decades ago. Obituaries, mostly, to see if anyone we knew passed away. Today, I came across the obituary of a man I didn't know, but it was touching - funny and poignant - and made me wish I had known him. Thought of you all when I read it. IMHO you're the kind of people who can appreciate an obit that starts out by referencing the man's birth as " a Sunday which saw Babe Ruth go three-for-four and score two runs as the Yankees defeated the Browns." http://tinyurl.com/jmvllky

Perhaps. She still is the interim DNC Chair. That position alone would make it hard to be a contributor.

268 "Construction of the blockhouses was the responsibility of the army with guidance and support provided by the Royal Engineers. The distance between blockhouses was calculated to be able to extent the reach as far as possibly but at the same time to prevent the Boers from passing unnoticed between them. The average distance apart was about 1,000 yards (910 m). Line of sight was vital and this required a greater density of blockhouses in some areas. The gap between blockhouses was filled by wire fences. These fences did not run along the shortest distance between the blockhouses but zig-zagged so that the troops from both blockhouses could fire at the enemy between themselves but without the chance of hitting the other blockhouse. The first fences were made from barbed wire but experience showed that this could be cut easily. Steel wire ¼ in (6mm) thick was imported to provide a more long-lasting deterrent." http://www.angloboerwar.com/other-information/16-other-information/1844-blockhouses

Each roll is a single piece of metal, while barbed wire is generally two long, twisted wires with small pieces of wire twisted within them to make the barbs.

2. They know they're propaganda masters, yet they accuse those who are telling the truth of doing that.

Have two stripped lowers I'm gonna build up (some time when I get around to it), but already have the dies, trimming attachment, primers, lots of brass, a case of factory ammo, and powder. The coming newest idiocy in CA constitution-shredding/firearm owner harassment (restrictions that will complicate/vastly inflate the cost of ammo acquisition) has me considering laying in supplies of a few calibers that might be in my future.

All the time, as often as I could remember during the day and night. Slow breathing. I eventually paired it with slow praying. Anyway, it sounds so stupid but it really helps a lot to be aware, and then take control, of how you breathe.

There's an episode of King of the Hill where Bill decides to get back in the game with the ladies.  He stands outside of the prison with flowers, and he is the first man they meet.

I can certainly understand why Insomniac doesn't want to wait outside of the prison.

And I can certainly understand not expecting something good to happen. One just has to look around at all the dysfunctional people in bad relationships, and it's easy to just give up.

You sit and nitpick frequently.

First of all Donna Brazil is not a journalist. She was a contributor to CNN as is Ralph Peters is a contributor to Fox, doesn't make them journalists.

She voluntarily left CNN as she was made DNC chair. Did she want to come back to CNN? Maybe. Perhaps.

She still is the interim DNC Chair. That position alone would make it hard to be a contributor.

Posted by: Misanthropic Humanitarian at December 29, 2016 11:18 PM (voOPb)

++++

I flat out disagree with the assertion that no journalists were punished as a result of wikileaks. I have substanitive reasons for my belief, and it isn't a matter of an 'i' not getting dotted. It isn't a nitpick. Donna Brazile isn't some nobody that no one ever heard of.

I would also note that my initial quote was of Hemingway's words, and that was who I disagreed with. You took up her side so I disagreed with you as well.

Journalist: Gail Collins and George Stephy are on that list. Brazile is at least as much of a "journalist" as those two. Many of the names I don't recognize, but I suspect there are more with the same quality of resume. If I had more initiative, I would go look them all up, but who cares? Democrat hacks and journalists are pretty much one and the same. Hell, your link goes to Instapundit, where he repeats his excellent observation that you should just think of journalists as Democrats with a byline.

Left CNN: She took a temp leave of absence. She was still on their books. Which means both her and CNN were at least open to her coming back after the election, depending on how things shook out. If Hillary would have won, she might have had a job in the White House.

Interim Chair: Maybe, maybe not. If she hadn't been forced out at CNN, she might have left the interim spot after the election loss. Or maybe not. That's all crystal ball territory. But, we do know that she no longer has the option of returning to CNN. At least for now.

Who knows, at some point in the future, they might forgive her. But, I think that unlike all the others exposed in the leak, she was really doing something her bosses disapproved of when she fed those questions to Hillary. She made CNN look complicit in rigging the debates, and I don't think they will let her back on their air. They really decided to separate themselves from her based on the info in those leaks.

Every day. For me, this does a great job of clearing the mind and putting me on the right path. Don't know just why it works, but it does, at least for me. Actually comes from Nathaniel Branden.

384 Random Joe, oh yeah. I know all about Wolford. $70 and up for *one* pair of hose (although of course, all of their richie-rich female customers claim they're durable). Their size options are also extremely limited. They pretty much run from 'starving up-and-coming supermodel' to 'starving over-the-hill supermodel.'

386 At the centennial of Navy aviation event in Coronado a few years ago, they had F-18s in WWII paint schemes, which was amusing. Highlight was the fly-over of an entire carrier air wing, in formation, at the end of the day. Sort of thing rarely done or seen (seen mostly in official photos of the wing and its carrier, below).

I repeat: you are too awesome of a person to relinquish control of your life to someone who treated you badly. Only YOU can make yourself happy and you are making zero effort to do so.

Yeah. And there were days when the only things I could think of to be grateful for were things like "I'm glad I was born in America and not in North Korea or Cuba." "I'm glad I don't have cancer." "I'm glad I have bed to sleep in and a roof over my head." Really, that was it. Everything else sucked. But even thinking of those things somehow helped. Realizing there are people far worse did help me put things in perspective when I was very depressed. Remember, depression distorts your thinking. Nothing seems good, nothing good will ever happen, the world would be better off or no different without me. You need to pull away from that cloud, if just for a few minutes. As things get better, you find more things to be grateful for.

Pretty sure the Buick 218 V8 was different from the typical small block, and the huge caddy engines (500+) may not have been the same as the regular GM big block. 'Course, I'm not a mechanic.

I know a handful of people who had their first marriage in their late 40's/ 50's, and they are all still together.

Personally, I think of it as different timelines. Some people just do not have that urge in their 20's and 30's to settle down. I don't think there's a perfect age for everyone to settle down and find a mate.

God has plans for all of us.  My significant other is a cat, and I  don't think I've been on an actual date in at least a decade. That being said... it's OK. There is very little chaos in my life, and I'm trying to rid my life of the small bit of chaos that is there.

In other words... I'm hopeful for others, yet not for myself.

They did not, because all their accounting staff are off this week. Her funds are cleared to go in the next round of disbursements -- probably next week. Then, again, I've run an accounting department, and coming back from a holiday shutdown to close the books for the year is a multi-dimensional fustercluck.

481 Dear ONT,

Is it just me, or is the liberal mindset very disjointed.

I don't understand how one can both be asked to be wary of "fake news" and refuse to take it at face value and yet be asked to accept a man with his junk duct-taped up between his legs as a "real woman" without question...

Thanks for the advice,
Confused in Tennessee
---

Dear Confused in Tennesse,

It's easy to be confused by liberals.

You know your "reasoning abilities?"

Liberals don't have them. At all. They are just a bubbling mass of random emotions that have no basis in any objective reality.

They are also incapable of consistency.

For example:

"The Federal Government Must Punish Bakers Who Will Not Bake Gay Wedding Cakes."

"Horray for Restaurants Not Serving Trump Voters, That is Totally OK."

or

"A girl of any age, even under 16, can decide if she wants an abortion without parental consent. It's her body."

"Health insurance states that a person is a child until the age of 26."

The best advice is to treat them the same way you'd treat anyone else with a mental illness.

Love,

The ONT

490 With all due respect to the ettes and most Morons, y'all fail to consistantly grasp the reality for just how far Cultural Marxism and feminism has and continues to destroy the lives of men and boys. Men have limited to zero resources that are offered to women. Men and women treat us like throw away garbage. Double standard in laws. Having your children ripped away. Society alienates men and boys. Women take control of their lives and it's at the expenense of other people, and they are cheered. (the more control one takes. The more one has to extert control over others.) Men try to regain control and take control of their lives, and our options are so limited that we risk going to jail. When you become a target of a enabled and psychotic ex spouse whom you have kids with, unless she stabs you, she can and will destroy your life and our sick, weak country cheers them on. And even then attempted murder will still allow her to keep the kids. Men and boys are treated like lepers and sub humans in America unless we comply and do to what the sisterhood and Cultural Marxists tell us to do. Let's stop pretending this is one of the worst problems Western Civilization faces. Let's stop pretending America cares about men and boys. Let's stop pretending men and women are treated equal under the law and in society. Lets stop pretending a divorced man with a coersive controlling ex spouse who is the mother of their children, has options and resources available to take control of his life without having to risk freedoms and access to his children. It's bull shit. And it feeds into the feminist and Cultural Marxist playbook. Ace needs to do a film review of the Documentary The Red Pill. Or Warden needs to. Rant over and God Bless y'all.

I doubt you could bore out a 283 to make a 350 from it. 307 was a destroked 327, IIRC, and was a dog emissions engine. 305 is a destroked 350, but puts out pretty good for its size. They also had a 262 small block used in V8 Monzas. And the 400 small block was used in some big cars and muscle cars. There are numerous Web sites that will give all Chevy small-block information, chapter and verse. And might prove me wrong on some of the details, LOL.

507 oh god, you people gonna make me tap this on the phone... In the GM world it started with Cadillac and Oldsmobile. Buick did a weird valvetrain that fit in narrower fenders etc. They were all different 50s-70s, and the big-block-small-block thing was largely a Chevy and kinda Buick thing (the Pontiacs were all the same architecture 326-455 making for the smallest and lightest 'big block') and of course Ford being Ford had so many different architectures, the most famous 'big block' (the FE) is almost a mid-block and in Poncho territory once you do away with the vast and heavy iron intake. The '80s led to a lot of stupidity from everyone. The Buick 215 was unique, aluminum, the tooling sold to Rover where it grew to 5 liters and 5.3 in aftermarket use, Buick developed the design into the iron 300.

539 If you are feeling bad about your life, let me tell you about Stephen. Stephen was a lovely boy with a charming smile and a great intellect. He was intelligent and aware and everyone in his family loved him. When Stephen was 17, he began exhibiting signs of schizophrenia, anxiety and OCD. His mother was unable to deal with him, so he was institutionalized in a state hospital. Over the next twenty years, Stephen was institutionalized in various hospitals, always near his parents, because they loved their son, and they tried to be a part of his life, always hoping that he would someday be cured. When Stephen was in his thirties, he was able to move back in with his parents due to improvements in psychotropic medications for treating his conditions. Unfortunately, although he could leave the hospital, he was unable to do most of the things that the rest of us take for granted. He couldn't hold a job, he had no opportunity to date or get married, and because of his mental instabilities, he even had a difficult time concentrating enough to read a book, although he had almost perfect recall of the things he did read. Time passed. Regrettably, Stephen developed tolerances to the drugs they were treating him with, and they had less and less effect. He would have episodes where he would become angry and verbally abusive with his parents. In addition, Stephen's parents were getting older, and there was real concern what his family would do once they became incapable of dealing with him. He was a tremendous emotional drain on both his mother and father, and neither one of them were in the best of health. Finally, the medications seemed to have lost all their ability to help Stephen, so his doctors tried a series of new therapies and drugs, but nothing seemed to work. Stephen, who, although mentally ill was perfectly capable of predicting where things were going, grew more and more despondent at the prospect of having to go back into institutions. Seven years ago today, my younger brother Stephen died of a drug overdose. He finally took his own life when it became clear that my mother and father could no longer deal with him and it was impossible for me and my wife, with our children and grandchildren living with us, to take him in. I know some of you feel like you have little hope and that your lives are barren and empty, but please remember, your lives are infinitely better than the life of my brother was. I beg of you, find the joy and the grace in your life and don't give in to despair. It will destroy you.

544 The problem with being single too long is that you become quite set in your ways and generally pretty obstinate. A relationship basically requires one to honestly consider the possibility of taking half of what you own or care about, dousing it in kerosene and setting it ablaze, figuratively, of course. I can not begin to tell you the conflicts I've faced in my current relationship after being a single dad for 11 years. I'm used to doing shit "my way". "My way" was not an arbitrarily arrived at standard operating procedure. It was cobbled together over a decade of trial and error to allow all things to get done that must be done, to account for my child and to squeeze out 1-2 hours per week of something that resembled free time. Fitting a girlfriend into this schedule, then, was something I basically went about as tweaking "my way" to allow for an amount of girlfriend time. Now, I managed to accomplish said goal, but only from my perspective. The rub occurs, when she notes that "my way" is not necessarily "our way" much less "her way". There is validity to what she is saying. My advice is that I have no advice. But be willing to give away far more than you think for a relationship. You can't squeeze it into another compartment and have to be ready to prioritize it.

546 480: It's a better selling point than being a blank slate. "Someone cared about you enough to have a kid with you," as opposed to "Nobody ever cared about you enough to have a kid with you, so... why should I?"

It's sort of like your credit rating... it's much better to have bad credit than no credit. Bad credit means somebody at least once found you worthy of taking a chance on.

555 1) I'm not unaware of this 2) Individuals are not statistics. Choose your woman carefully, and make sure she's not a feminist. Read Robert Stacy McCain. Posted by: Miley, Duchess of Double-Barrelling at December 30, 2016 12:31 AM ( You just proved my point by blaming me for not being able to spot a psychopath so therefore 100% I and othet men deserve what we get. My favorite argument, blaming the victims in my children, me, and my side of the family. Nothing excuses the violence that women, most men and American society perpretrates on men and boys daily. It I'd blaming the victim for the other persons actions is why our country will not survive. It's why men refuse to marry or date. Too bad all this knowledge about feminism and Cultural Marxism and the sisterhood just came about the last 6 years. Too late in my case. The only reason I've survived is reading people like Robert Stacey McCain, who himself has a habit of blaming men for dating a woman America and the Churchian America puts out for us to date and mate. So thanks for proving my point. Yes men deserve it because women are not held accountable, face consequences, and Western society allows them to get away with murder. What about the laws, the billions in government and private money finding these resources. Robert Stacey McCain is blessed. But he is no expert by any means. Let his wife run off with his kids while the masses cheer and the government enables. Lets see how positive, lucid, and sound he sounds after that.

558 542 If you are feeling bad about your life, let me tell you about Stephen. Stephen was a lovely boy with a charming smile and a great intellect. He was intelligent and aware and everyone in his family loved him.

When Stephen was 17, he began exhibiting signs of schizophrenia, anxiety and OCD. His mother was unable to deal with him, so he was institutionalized in a state hospital.

Over the next twenty years, Stephen was institutionalized in various hospitals, always near his parents, because they loved their son, and they tried to be a part of his life, always hoping that he would someday be cured.

When Stephen was in his thirties, he was able to move back in with his parents due to improvements in psychotropic medications for treating his conditions. Unfortunately, although he could leave the hospital, he was unable to do most of the things that the rest of us take for granted. He couldn't hold a job, he had no opportunity to date or get married, and because of his mental instabilities, he even had a difficult time concentrating enough to read a book, although he had almost perfect recall of the things he did read.

Time passed. Regrettably, Stephen developed tolerances to the drugs they were treating him with, and they had less and less effect. He would have episodes where he would become angry and verbally abusive with his parents.

In addition, Stephen's parents were getting older, and there was real concern what his family would do once they became incapable of dealing with him. He was a tremendous emotional drain on both his mother and father, and neither one of them were in the best of health.

575 Condolences for your family's loss. I hope the healing has greatly progressed and continues today. Thanks, Cthulhu. Actually, it was probably for the best. There was literally no hope for him. He is in a place where he is whole now. My father and Stephen were particularly close. My father died the next Thanksgiving Day. After Stephen went, he just seemed to lose all will to live. The double loss just about killed my Mom, but she is still plugging along. Stephen made me reevaluate my life constantly. I have rarely been able to play "poor little me" with much enthusiasm because, no matter how bad things get, I am light-years ahead of what my brother went through his entire life. It makes it hard to wallow in self-pity. Not impossible. :-) Just hard. I just felt like maybe there are some people here on the ONT that might gain a little perspective if they heard the story of my brother. This is not meant nastily or in an accusing way. Just that sometimes we need to count our blessings. I am not sure I have ever told anyone the story of my brother outside of family and close friends who were there.

Absolutely. I heard a man hitting notes a castrato would envy at the salon when I was there.

So thanks for proving my point. Yes men deserve it because women are not held accountable, face consequences, and Western society allows them to get away with murder. What about the laws, the billions in government and private money finding these resources.

640 On dating, I will say that one of the times that even thinking about Stephen didn't keep me from almost killing myself in despair was when I divorced my first wife and she took my two daughters away from me. I was so low that I was prepared to end it just to stop the pain. On the other hand, I am now seventeen years into my second marriage, my second wife and I have written two novels, and it looks like the first one may be picked up by a major publisher. So, you literally never know what is coming.

674 #643: I understand, David. I had suicidal urges, myself, when I was young. You know what cured me of that? A friend of mine attempted suicide.

That really helped me realize the impact that suicide has on people who care about you. That friend is still alive, and I'm grateful for that. And... it might be kind of shitty of me to say this, but... I appreciate the lessons I learned from his attempt. It was actually a good thing for me.

I had another friend years later who was successful in committing suicide. If he were here now, I'd punch him in the face for it.

692 This isn't the first time I've been attacked on the HQ by some guy who's been burned by a nutcase. Women get burned by nutcases too, and all of those vaunted resources often fail to save their lives. " I have a friend whose husband ran off to Texas to be with a woman he met on the Internet, leaving her and 2 small kids. She got depressed for a while when she miscarried her 3th child, and he told her he didn't like being around someone who was a "bummer." So much for for better, for worse.... Yeah, she got some child support money from him. She would have rather had a husband there to help her raise her children. I don't doubt that some women are harpies and gold diggers. I'm tired of hearing in these parts that Women are to blame, as though it's only men who know the pain of getting betrayed and dumped. I know women who raised the kids when the men were in med or law school, only to get dumped for trophy wives once the guys were making big bucks.

I had a PE teacher in high school who kept me after class every day for weeks to do jumping jacks in front of him, til someone turned him in. I had professors rub their crotches and suggest what I could do for a better grade. I have been leered at, had inappropriate remarks made, and offers for advancements for sexual favors in many work places. I have been assaulted (shoved into the front seat of my truck while I was loading groceries, and my clothes cut off with a machete; I have a scar on my back from it.) What I do NOT do is come here and talk about what pigs men are, how not all harassment charges are fake, and that not every woman falsely accuses men of rape. (To be clear, I was not raped, but that was certainly his intent)

I have a friend whose husband ran off to Texas to be with a woman he met on the Internet, leaving her and 2 small kids. She got depressed for a while when she miscarried her 3th child, and he told her he didn't like being around someone who was a "bummer." So much for for better, for worse....

Yeah, she got some child support money from him. She would have rather had a husband there to help her raise her children.

I don't doubt that some women are harpies and gold diggers. I'm tired of hearing in these parts that Women are to blame, as though it's only men who know the pain of getting betrayed and dumped. I know women who raised the kids when the men were in med or law school, only to get dumped for trophy wives once the guys were making big bucks. Again, I don't think whatever money they get made up for the heartbreak and betrayal.

Women can be shitty. Men can be shitty. Because they're all humans and humans can be shitty.

I think that all of us can agree that the current "system" in place in our government is a greater menace to women, men, and children than they are to each other. If "family court" or "divorce court" had been imposed on us by a foreign entity, it would have been rightfully considered an act of war. Instead, it was imposed by cultural Marxists determined to degrade the family, the bonds between parents and children, and people's relationships.

743 I just passed my 24th anniversary of bartending. One of my favorite things over the years is the happy hour retirees that come in for two or three every afternoon. They always put on a show about how they would like to have another one but their wife would yell and scream if they were late getting home. Then, periodically, the wife goes out of town and you ask them if they want to have an extra one today and they say "No, I told her I'd feed those dogs of hers. I better not." There is nothing wrong with loving your wife, missing them and being most comfortable when you are with them. Sometimes we just have to fake like we don't really need them to keep our man card.

When you turn it on, it sings a happy little "proud to be of service" song. It chimes when you select cycles and options. When it gets done, it sings a song of happiness and pathos -- happiness that it has ably performed a dishwashing cycle, but ending on a somewhat sad note that it could not continue to be more helpful.

764 Gee, if I got a bunch of appliances to nag me, I wouldn't need a girl friend. That's probably one of the less-popular options for that Japanese "gatebox" girlfriendbot thing that was linked here last week or so. We just got an LG dishwasher to replace the one that experienced multiple simultaneous failures....and it sings. All the time. My brother has an LG washer/dryer set; they're also quite musical. My only singing appliance is a Zojirushi rice cooker. But I expect random acts of cuteness from Japanese things.

When you turn it on, it sings a happy little "proud to be of service" song. It chimes when you select cycles and options. When it gets done, it sings a song of happiness and pathos -- happiness that it has ably performed a dishwashing cycle, but ending on a somewhat sad note that it could not continue to be more helpful.
The Fiancee's sister also has a recent LG appliance, and says that hers also sings.

I used to be the Controller for a company that made wafer-handling robots for semiconductor fabs. As you might imagine, as factories got more and more automated, you needed fewer and fewer people around. In fact, after a certain point in automation, it's dangerous to have people in a plant because (a) they may be exposed to chemicals that aren't people friendly, and (b) the robots might move through where the people are.


It's been a number of years, but I've had contacts tell me that a lot of fabs these days are run "dark", but an increasing number of tools sing little songs on process initiation or completion -- and some managers claim to be able to assess the status of a large unlit production floor merely by listening to the songs the tools sing.

790 Waiting for my take-out to-go food at the restaurant earlier this evening. Had the following conversation with the check-out guy: Check-out Guy: "Did you hear? Some dude just went crazy and was shooting his gun wildly at random in San Francisco." Me: "Really? What part of the city?' Check-out Guy: "Hunter's Point, I think." (note for those unfamiliar with the area: this is the gang-infested slum part of town.) Me: "No, I didn't hear about that at all. Where did you hear about it?" Check-out Guy: "From my friend. He lives over there, heard the shots. The world is going crazy, man." Me: "Yeah, pretty crazy." Check-out Guy: "Now with Trump, people just erupt into violence everywhere. It's nuts." Me: "What?" Check-out Guy: "I mean, now people feel they have permission to act out their hate, with Trump coming in." Me: "So, the guy shooting up Hunter's Point -- did he say something about Trump?" Check-out Guy: "I don't know. Guns - Trump -- craziness, man!" Me: "Well, there's always a lot of gunfire in Hunter's Point -- who knows what it was about." Check-out Guy: "Nah man, this whole Trump thing has me worried." Me: "But this incident you mentioned -- probably got nothing to do with politics. Probably just a gang thing." Check-out Guy: "Trump is encouraging violence against communities of color, know what I mean? It's all connected, man. Oh and here's your food. Thank you! Bye bye." Sooooooo -- now apparently every single act of violence that occurs in America for the next four years -- and probably for the next forty years -- will be blamed on Trump, regardless of how irrelevant the violence is to politics. Gangbanger shoots a drug dealer? Hate crime inspired by Trump. Man beats his wife? Trump's fault. Argument over a game of dominoes? Trump.

Wow, that's some heavy shit.


I laugh at the feminist b.s. about rape culture - I lost my virginity to an a-hole at a frat in college.  FWIW I understand that I put myself in that situation, it was stupid and naive.  I'd never met a guy who wouldn't take "no" for an answer, until I did.  It definitely put me on a bad course for quite some time. 


But when Mr. D and I got back together again after all those years, it was so awesome that it felt like the first time, and somehow healed that bad shit.  No woman wants to remember a rape as her first time, and now I don't have to.

I had a couple of contacts with Rum after she got scarce here, and my impression was that IRL temptations lured her away, rather than someone ran her off.

*sigh*  Eye-candy is nice, but if a guy is too good-looking, that's bad because he'll know it.  Don't care about six-packs.  Can't deal with a man who can't control his drinking (my ex was an alcoholic and that shit is just too painful to deal with).  I like a man who can draw a line in the sand and demand that I respect it, otherwise I'll walk all over him.  I hate that and won't respect him or myself.   I'm a cheap date but high-maintenance in other ways (not always fun ways but also in fun ways).  I like quick wit and silliness, and intelligence.  Not into rich guys, but poor is probably not good either, since I'm financially threadbare and don't need someone else to worry about.  A Godly man, but not overly "religious."

Thanks Joe - but I really give Mr. D credit.  He set the tone - always patient with me, always forgiving when I fucked up.  It was a weird situation, moving into his home with two teenagers, and I'd never had kids.  In time, with God's help, I learned to love him the way he loved me - ignoring the flaws, concentrating on the assets.  He was a man of great character and faith, and was wholly invested in making it work.  An excellent mate.

I should add that she was one of those women who considers her sexual accessibility to be a rare thing.  For years she assumed that I had bedeviled him with my sexual charms.  He had a strong sex drive that was throttled back for 25 years.  That kind of incompatibility is really horrible.


Look, sex is very important and a most excellent way to express love and intimacy, but we laughed a lot, too.  Even during sex.  And never, ever ran out of things to talk about.  We had a lot of common, but were eager to learn everything about each other.  That takes a long, long time.  Maybe another 30 years that we didn't get.

Studies show that living together before marriage doesn't in any way enhance the likelihood of a successful marriage.  I have a young gf, just turn 31.  Her bf hasn't asked her in - what - 4 or 5 years, to marry him.  He's wasting her time.  She'd like to have kids.  And yet she isn't moving out.  She should just end it.


She knows I'm going to tell her this, which is why she hasn't been in touch with me since July.

Landau portrays the actor Bela Lugosi, who died during filming of 'Plan 9 From Outer Space'. 'Ed Wood' was a movie about making a really bad sci-fi movie from the Fifties.

I was disappointed that she dropped off the radar.  I know she had a hard time with death, and I suspect that Tim's death brought back other grief that she hadn't processed.  Whatever.  I don't blame anyone for avoiding the black hole of grief that I became.  She wasn't the only one to disappear after Tim's death.

1001 Would it be possible to land the Sears Tower on the Moon. It would be ready made habitat for moonbats, if so.

1003 Three weeks to start a war? It's always possible but Vlad the Invader isn't playing along. That and the fact that our Military is dispersed all over the Globe, in sorry state of supply in both Personnel and Munitions, not to mention state of readiness, leads to the thought that no less than three months would be needed for any kind of offensive operation of consequence.

1006 My observation of my friends has been that good sex papered over horrible relationships. And once you're living together it's harder to break up. Even harder if you're married.

1009 I would like to thank Donald Trump for not embarrassing himself, and the nation, by drawing up some idiotic "Seal of the Office of the President-Elect" the way that that juvenile, narcissistic idiot Obama did back in 2008.

1010 Maybe they should stay together, if for no other reason than to keep them occupied and away from others. Posted by: RickZ at December 30, 2016 04:02 AM (91AeI) I forget who said it, but someone once commented about the acerbic couple of Thomas and Jane Carlyle: "It was very good of God to make Mr and Mrs Carlyle marry and so have only two people miserable instead of four."

1012 The Greek columns and so forth were an early tell, as were his petulance when debating Hillary, but the seal was the first time I thought "this guy has issues." I am continually amazed at how much of modern life here recently has been validating and reinforcing people's psychological issues.

1013 997 creeper, lost in the Witopia web pbho and his handlers are too late. Yes, there is damage. But not irrevocable damage. I'm an optimistic conservative. I see an strengthening Arab modus vivendi with Israel against Iran. The Saudis, Jordan and Egypt are on it. To a lesser extent, the Gulf states are too. It's ironic, and indicative of everything Shit-Midas has done, that the results are opposite pbho's intentions. And the Palestinians have no real friends outside of the Left.

1014 1004 Tim in Illinois. Wargame Designer As Nixon was leaving office there was concern about what he would do. The JCOS reviewed Presidential orders prior to execution. So there is precedent. Nixon loved America and world peace a whole lot more that pbho.

1015 Aussie, have a most serene night. May every traffic light turn green as you approach. Chores await.

1023 Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine Ralph Waldo Emerson But if you don't stand in your sunshine, where should you stand? Someone else's sunshine? In the shadows of someone else? I have a feeling Waldo didn't think this out too carefully.

And this is why I keep battling the internet gods to get on here.  This was better than the shot of Bailey's I just laced my coffee with.
