Thursday's ONT is Shooting From The Hip
— Open Blogger

Straight linkfest tonight gang. I got home later than usual, I was wondering if I was even going to have time to write this at all. Basically this is the ONT equivalent of a sitcom clips show.

caption 2.jpg

Fringe on Fringe Fight!

Why the Alt-Right Thinks Porn is a Jewish Conspiracy

What happens when the far left takes aim at the alt-right? Fun for the whole family!

I mean, White Supremacist "logic" is a dog's breakfast of contradiction and inferiority (example: The Juice! are using porn to sap the white man's Purity Of Essence because they want to bring down the superior race, yet if white men are unusually susceptible to this confounding copulation chicanery, wouldn't that make them evolutionarily inferior?), but the author of the article thinks that the problem with porn is that people aren't spending enough money on it. It's like a multi-vehicle pileup of clown cars

After the Break, the Results of the DNA Test Revealing if Nosmo is Wanda's Baby Daddy!


It takes a lot to make me do a double take online anymore, this turned the trick.


Musical Interlude

Some maniac set the entirety of Rush’s “2112” to old Peanuts clips



Be This Guy



Hero climbs up outside of Paris building to save child dangling from balcony

Pretty exciting clip at the link. Spiderman's got nothing on this guy.


Burn!




You can't see the progression of Tweets that lead to this one because the other guy protected his account, but it should be fairly obvious.

woke up Tuesday morning with my left knee hurting and not wanting to function properly. would not re-align or otherwise get back in operation.

finally got to the chiro today: somehow, i managed to bork my medial meniscus in my sleep.

top that one, fellow morons/ettes

damn glad i'm not a horse, that's for sure.

32 Here's a partial list of TBS advertisers and sponsors: Many of the advertisers on TBS are owned by large conglomerates who own multiple brands and products marketed on TBS. So, wherever I could, I tried to put the parent company instead of the individual brand or product. That shortens the list, and you can also look them up to see which of their many, many brands and products you might like to boycott. I've excluded charitable foundations from this list: Kraft-Heinz Foods; Olive Garden; Otsuka Pharmaceutical; Warner Bros.; ApartmentList.com; Sol Cerveza; McDonald's; Red Robin; Nestle; TracFone Wireless; Whole Foods; Lowe's; PepsiCo; Progressive Insurance; Oscar Meyer; Tempur Sealy International; Philips Norelco; Hershey's; General Mills; Procter & Gamble; UTI.edu; Bridgestone; Cici's Pizza; MillerCoors; Dole Fruit, Nautilus/Bowflex; Dunkin Brands; Little Caesar's Pizza; Bacardi; Honda; Shire Pharmaceutical; Restaurant Brands International; Global Road Entertainment; Kimberley-Clark; Home Depot; TripAdvisor; Schick Razors; DriveTime.com; Ferrara Candy; Jose Cuervo; Navy Federal Credit Union; Office Depot; Indeed.com; Priceline; Mars; Subway; AtomTickets; Nectar Mattress; Pizza Hut; Vistaprint; Subaru; Unilever; Mini Cooper; Chattem; Sling; CreditRepair.com; Corona; Apartments.com; Coca-Cola; GEICO; Dine Brands Global; Jersey Mike's Subs; Church & Dwight Co.; AARP; Domino's; Apple; Tyson Foods; Actavis Generics; American Family Insurance; Frito Lay; MMISuccess.com; Yum!

37 Red, Sometimes I awaken in the morning with sore knees. Has to do with sleeping on my side and pressure on my knees. I have hinky menisci and have to tread carefully when I squat and when I run downhill. I have found, believe it or not, that squats done according to Rippetoe (Ace and Insty talk about him a bunch) strengthens the surround muscles enough that my knee pain is much, much better. Here's hoping you improve rapidly!

43 For those Morons who are still on Facebook (possibly none), have you defriended anyone for being really obnoxious politically? I haven't (at least not just for that), but I'm getting close to it with one of my friends; I told her I was going to delete all her comments on my posts until she acknowledged her hypocrisy on the Roseanne/Samantha Bee thing. Which will never happen. I've been wondering if that was an extreme reaction on my part.

55 So the Starbucks policy of welcoming anyone to use their bathrooms and tables. It isn't just a matter of employees having to clean the filth up after homeless drug addicts and drunks leave. They're taking up space that customers need. I don't go to Starbucks, but if I did I wouldn't want to wait for a table because some drunk derelict is sitting there. Also, I wouldn't want to use a seat afterwards, because drunks can be, um, incontinent. And don't get me started on the restrooms. And I wouldn't want to be an employee in a large city Starbucks, and have to clean the bathrooms.

Just posting the list to see if any look appealing to people. Any of their sponsors will do.

And it wasn't even *this* so much; I made the decision after I brought up that black Trump supporter who was called the n-word by those restaurant (?) employees in CA, and she said that wasn't even close to being the same thing as the Starbucks kerfluffle. I have no patience with this BS. But I don't want to give the impression that I whack people for stating different opinions, either. Oh well; guess that'll happen either way.

Brilliant!!

Heh. I got banned from a liberal message board for basically the exact same thing over a decade ago. (Challenged a pro-Palestinian  guy to travel to Israel (on my dime no less), where I would walk up and down in front of IDF HQ for an hour wearing a sandwich-board saying "God bless the PLO", he would do the same in Gaza except his board would say "God bless the IDF". He refused, I hounded him about his cowardice, and I got banned for "wishing death" on another poster. Which, I think, pretty much proved my point)

Posted by: Weirddave at May 31, 2018 05:09 PM (vFKpB)

69 I completely agree that its crazy to claim that Porn is a Juice conspiracy against the white man. As I've mentioned before I personally known a girl who went into porn after college. SO I know more about it than your joe schmoe off the street. There are A LOT of horrible things and people in that industry that are worthy of disgust. But its not some Jewish conspiracy. Crazy talk. That said - I also don't trust that MEL article one bit because the author proudly lists that his writing has appeared at The Atlantic, Vox and the Washington Post. With THAT on his resume its guaranteed his writing is poorly researched and riddled with intentional lies and negligent errors.

94 Somebody (last name Hanson?, not the one you know) on the twatters already demonstrated the proper SBUX strategy.  He brought in food from somewhere else (Chick-Fil-A), got on his laptop, and ordered Black Rifle Coffee beans using SBUX's wi-fi.


I would have hoped by now someone would have held a staff meeting, with Chick-Fil-A and McDonald's coffee, at a SBUX, taking up most of their space.  Not spending a dime.  And video'd it, of course.


Only downside there is you might have to use the bathroom.

Posted by: Lancelot Link Secret Agent Chimp at May 31, 2018 10:09 PM (y1gYQ) I never watched Springer much, but I do distinctly remember one episode featuring trannies, where a guy was in a relationship with a tranny, but also had a side thing going with the tranny's cousin, who was....also a tranny. (I don't remember if he knew their status or not.) Anyway, the two "ladies" confronted each other and started going at it, and the crowd was chanting "fight like a man! Fight like a man!" All of which is to say....yeah, Springer's got some cajones making that statement.

228 I have a book of British military "jokes from 1916. Found it at a rural consignment and junk shop. Some small wormhole damage, but all readable. The Scottish troops and all rural troops come in for a lot of "humor." The best joke was the scout looking for Germans in a foggy woods. Silence. Finally he shouts, "Waiter!" in English. Lots of replies then from the pre-war German waitstaff, now in Feldgrau.

They send you a recipe and the botanicals. You buy vodka and soak the botanicals in it. It's pretty fun trying to reproduce your fav gin.

Many of the advertisers on TBS are owned by large conglomerates who own multiple brands and products marketed on TBS.

So, wherever I could, I tried to put the parent company instead of the individual brand or product. That shortens the list, and you can also look them up to see which of their many, many brands and products you might like to boycott.

I've excluded charitable foundations from this list:

Kraft-Heinz Foods; Olive Garden; Otsuka Pharmaceutical; Warner Bros.; ApartmentList.com; Sol Cerveza; McDonald's; Red Robin; Nestle; TracFone Wireless; Whole Foods; Lowe's; PepsiCo; Progressive Insurance; Oscar Meyer; Tempur Sealy International; Philips Norelco; Hershey's; General Mills; Procter & Gamble; UTI.edu; Bridgestone; Cici's Pizza; MillerCoors; Dole Fruit, Nautilus/Bowflex; Dunkin Brands; Little Caesar's Pizza; Bacardi; Honda; Shire Pharmaceutical; Restaurant Brands International; Global Road Entertainment; Kimberley-Clark; Home Depot; TripAdvisor; Schick Razors; DriveTime.com; Ferrara Candy; Jose Cuervo; Navy Federal Credit Union; Office Depot; Indeed.com; Priceline; Mars; Subway; AtomTickets; Nectar Mattress; Pizza Hut; Vistaprint; Subaru; Unilever; Mini Cooper; Chattem; Sling; CreditRepair.com; Corona; Apartments.com; Coca-Cola; GEICO; Dine Brands Global; Jersey Mike's Subs; Church & Dwight Co.; AARP; Domino's; Apple; Tyson Foods; Actavis Generics; American Family Insurance; Frito Lay; MMISuccess.com; Yum!

That's where some discipline from the leadership (Ryan and McConnell) would help. Call in every member and explain...no demand...that if they are within 100 yards of a microphone and camera they talk about nothing but this un-American, un-constitutional attempt to overthrow the legitimate government of the United States. Isn't this what every Democrat does all the time, regardless of the question or the venue? Make the media cover our side by talking about nothing else. And tell any member unwilling to participate that they won't get a red cent for their re-election campaign. It's called hardball and the Democrats are masters at it.

336 Poor Disney -- just another Mom and Pop trying to keep its nose clean in the rough neighborhood of American culture. That's how Lloyd Greif, a Los Angeles-based investor sees the multi-billion-dollar entertainment conglomerate. Writing in The Washington Post, he claimed that Disney, in spite of recent events, wants to and should stay out of the "culture war" to avoid alienating its audience. "Choosing sides - Democrat or Republican - is a lose-lose since we're talking about alienating potentially half of the viewership," Greif wrote.

343 308---.....AARP, State Farm Insurance, and Navy Federal Credit Union are my 3. All big corporations, not involved with franchisees/small business to get screwed, and there are competitors for all of them to switch your business if you are a customer now. Navy Federal I am guessing would drop them like a hot potato. What say the Horde? Posted by: LeftCoast Dawg at May 31, 2018 11:21 PM (UsCnO) --------------------------------------- Good choices. No conservative should belong to AARP anyway. (AMAC has the same benefits without the left-wing politics.) And I would think that Navy Federal would be quite vulnerable. Do they actually sponsor that Bee woman? Hard to believe they would.

This price run-up probably can't be sustained, though, so it might get rough in the middle. Rising interest rates are gonna be a bitch. Most people buy a payment, so if your payment is fixed and the interest rate goes up, the principal is gonna have to go down. Won't happen yet, but 6% is probably gonna be a wake-up call.

354 Not to be wet-blanket-ish about it, but bear in mind that your property tax will go up accordingly. That year-over-year cost must be subtracted from the sale (when it occurs) in reckoning net gain. That can be substantial. In our case, we have paid probably $80,000 in taxes over the period of ownership. More to the point, whatever Redfin says, things are only worth what someone will actually pay for it. Redfin says that our house is worth $200K more than my estimate.

373 ibguy, please prioritize Alex because he was here first but I have a southern Ohio question for you. Many years ago, I was driving back out west and came into Ohio from West Virginia. I drove through a small city that was the most idyllic and picturesque small/midsize American town I have ever seen. I always intended to look into further because it was a real gem but I forgot the name of it in the hustle-and-bustle of the drive back. If I recall correctly, it was anchored by an insurance company or a finance firm of some kind. Any chance you might know the town I'm talking about? I know this is the very definition of "vague" but perhaps your local expertise can help.

This was, like, a year and a half after his last hearing on that matter, with no actions taken since.

I wonder about things like that. ------------------ Probably a bit plumper than our usual standards of beauty these days (a little bit of cushion means more fertile). And no tan. Tans are for peasants that have to spend all day outdoors. On the other hand, there's reason to believe that some of our standards of beauty are based on inherited biological markers. So we'd probably still think she was attractive, albeit perhaps not to the same degree as Artaxerxes.

488 @469 I thought screen burn was primarily a problem with plasma tvs. They do not seem to make those anymore. ------------------ Screen savers were specifically designed to combat screen burn-in, and had their hey-day long before plasma became wide spread. There was fear of burn-in even with the older monitors. Although if it ever happened, I didn't hear about it.

490 A thought: back in the day, and especially CRT's, there was a real danger of screen burn. That is, the screen would basically burn itself to the point that whatever image/icons were on the desktop would become permanently embedded (?). Those days are long gone, but maybe just too easy to leave that functionality available, even if not really necessary? Just a SWAG. Posted by: ibguy at June 01, 2018 12:40 AM (vUcdz) Yeah, I have personally seen CRT's with burned-in images. But, given the need for such a thing has passed, it's dumb to make the power-saver a default setting. Have it available, by all means, for those using portable devices.

549 I'm sorry, but I gotta share this from Quora. I think people here will enjoy... What was the craziest thing you've seen in a restaurant? Mike Neville, Worked in a few, ran a small cafe with my wife. Updated 11h ago I worked in a 24 hrs steak house in Montreal for a while. I worked the night shift. We were right next door to a popular gay bar and across the street from a major hotel. We received customers from both those establishments. The hookers came from the hotel and the transvestites came from the club. These two groups didn't get along well. One night one of the hookers was slipping the sugar packs from the table into her purse. One of the transvestites saw this and passed over the sugar bowl from her table. Along with a comment something like "I see you must have had a bad night dearie, I did much better let me help you out." Next thing you know the air is full of flying high heels and purses. The ladies are all screaming, pulling hair and rolling in the aisles. Full scale gang war, trannies vs hookers. Our manager, a recent arrival from India and a very reserved gentleman was stunned. He just leaned against the bar wide eyed, mouth agape, unable to react at all. The bartender, an old salt who had seen it all, signaled to me and the other staff and we started sorting it all out. Hookers out the front, trannies out the back, they can settle it in the alley if they want to continue. A normal late night in downtown Montreal.

But yeah, listened to Rush, found Levin, and would start to read things that they talked about (Federalist papers, Levin's books, etc., etc.). Basically is intellectually curious and became conservative.

570 Screen savers were specifically designed to combat screen burn-in, and had their hey-day long before plasma became wide spread. There was fear of burn-in even with the older monitors. Although if it ever happened, I didn't hear about it. Posted by: junior ------------ The issue was the 'aging' of the phosphors of CRT's. This was the case for all CRT's, whether TV, oscilloscopes, whatever. It only became a significant issue with CRT monitors for computers because of the likelihood of a fixed pattern being displayed repeatedly, and for an extended period of time. So far as screen blanking goes these days, I believe that it is strictly a matter of power saving. The screen consumes probably 20%-30% of the power while the computer is idle.

598 You know what I've noticed? 90% (it's an estimate based on skipping around on i-heart radio) talk radio stations that broadcast conservative shows, feature network news from ABC. CBS, NBC every 30 minutes. The radio newscasts make their TV counterparts look absolutely objective. So, the owners of these stations are like: "Yeah, Rush brings me the money, but, he's the entertainment for the rubes. I'll do my civic duty and correct them with "objective news." As I write this, ABC Radio News is on KTSE CROWING about Trey Gowdy's exoneration of the FBI regarding the Obama/Clinton spy op on Trump's campaign. There's duplicity in the radio biz for money and then there's Trey Gowdy--the purest and most loathsome example of duplicity.

618 >>>The Juice! are using porn to sap the white man's Purity Of Essence because they want to bring down the superior race, yet if white men are unusually susceptible to this confounding copulation chicanery, wouldn't that make them evolutionarily inferior? You can show empirically Jews aren't the main drivers behind pr0n (Hef, Flynt, Guccione, etc. none are Jewish). But the assertion that the inferior can never defeat something superior is obviously untrue. i) Let's say ebola wipes out an entire village. Are those viruses really more complex, sophisticated, able to perform a wider range of functions, etc.? ii) Or a thug pretends to be in distress and some compassionate granny helps him out and he assaults and robs her. He has leveraged her superiority against her. He wins because he is *inferior*. iii) Or a leftist pulling hoaxes to gain sympathy, or browbeating compassionate people over the head with arguments like "support my bill, or else you don't care about the chilluns or the planet". Again using people's virtues against them. iv) Or the seemingly inevitable victory of Islam over much of Europe and Canada. /rant off

Posted by: Skip at June 01, 2018 05:02 AM (aC6Sd) A splash of white vinegar in the water helps with the peeling of the shell after boiling. The vinegar has no effect on the taste of the boiled eggs. A trick I learned from my Mom (and her deviled eggs) well over 40 years ago. My technique is to put the eggs in cold water/vinegar, bring to a boil in a pot with a lid. Once at a boil turn off heat and let sit anywhere from 8 to 11 minutes, depending on how hard you want that yolk to be. Me? I push closer to 8 minutes than 11; I like runny boiled eggs.

620 ", the Queen is descended from Mohammed." Except that according to the article she is descended from Zaida who converted to Catholicism and took the name of Isabella. The queen descends from someone who left islam and forswear the so-called 'prophet', who was an apostate in other words, and a woman to boot. The message here is for muslims to leave islam and convert to Christianity, in particular, to Catholicism. Can't believe they would be happy about that. Perhaps someone should spell it out to them.

625 Hard boiled eggs, Hah! The last batch I did, the water was a low boil. I didn't think it was important. They were impossible to peel. Threw them away in frustration. Put the eggs in cold water, heat water to boiling (tablespoon of vinegar in the water), roiling boil for 8-9 minutes. Then dump into colander under cold water; water so cold it hurts your hands. The shells almost fall off when you get that cold water under the shell. Then the eggs going into vinegar to pickle for three or four days if they last that long.

To get it fixed would have been more then the battery one. We don't have a lot of trimming to do, and it's short grass anyway.

649 I bought a new Black and Decker battery trimmer. Those new lithium battery's sure last. Posted by: Colin at June 01, 2018 06:48 AM Not only do they last, they're getting more powerful every year. I recently bought a chain saw, pole trimmer, and leaf blower that run off the same 40 volt lithium battery. Went to Lowes recently and noticed they now sell a 60 volt battery. I was surprised the chain saw really did a decent job, especially on some good hardwood. No more gas/oil mixtures or repeated pull starts for me. It's actually a little safer as the chain spins down to a stop much quicker then gas powered.

I might be investing in a few more when I see how this works

653 Posted by: Bruce at June 01, 2018 06:57 AM (8ikIW) I have a 4-cycle Honda line trimmer that works like a champ. I feed it unleaded gas and it stays happy. Takes 0.130 (IIRC) line and no auto feed, but it has a very simple rugged manual feed so it's not a problem!

654 To get it fixed would have been more then the battery one. No doubt. 2 years ago, a carb overhaul kit, a spark plug and an air filter set me back $45. The throttle cable was another $35. But the opportunity to spend the afternoon in the garage with a scotch and cigar, listening to SRV was pretty compelling.

655 584 The British have a new aircraft carrier--the Queen Elizabeth--that is the largest in the world. The BBC had a series on their shakedown cruise. Posted by: Darrell at June 01, 2018 02:05 AM (oLhbH) No, she's about 65,000 tons. Our newest ones are about 100,000. That does mean she's the first real carrier they've built since the old Ark Royal, rather than a light carrier. It's kind of sad, really. They invented the aircraft carrier, but in the 1930s fell behind not just us, but the Japanese too. It didn't help that the planes and pilots mostly belonged to the RAF, not the RN, until just before WWII.

656 43 For those Morons who are still on Facebook (possibly none), have you defriended anyone for being really obnoxious politically? I have muted dozens of people on my friends list who went batshit crazy when PDT was elected; these people were quiet as mice during 8 years of Obama. I unfriended one person, only because after the election she announced that anyone who voted for Trump is not her friend followed by a bunch of vile curses. I unfriended her. And blocked her on Twitter. And Instagram. She came crawling back about a year later. I guess she missed my witty posts.

658 I really hate the 'the alt-right thinks' pieces. Anyone who has issues with the cuck right is alt to the mainstream right. It is diverse. You probably couldn't get the entirety of the alt right to agree on any point other than that the mainstream right sucks donkey dicks. Alt right label means of the right, not of the mainstream right. It means nothing about what they affirmatively believe. It is as dumb as talking about the religious beliefs of non-hindus (with Hindus standing in for mainstream). They don't agree. On anything. It would encompass everything from Communist Atheists to Paki-Islamo terrorists to the pope and the as of yet uncontacted tribes of the amazon. Its just dumb to talk about the religious beliefs of the non-Hindus, or the political beliefs of the alt right. Especially since so many self described alt rights aren't even on the right at all in my humble opinion....there are ethnic socialists in the supposed alt right, and no proper definition of 'right' includes marxists who aren't sufficiently marxist for the commies who control our language. The whole 'Nazis are on the right' is a function of the Stalinists and Stalinist sympathizers being ever so slightly further left than the radically left German National Socialist Workers Party. Socialists = NOT RIGHT

659 On lost phones.
My youth was spent working bumping elbows and socializing with stoners.
yes, Marijuana makes you stupid and this is the best example I've seen.
I've read where the number of stoned drivers in accidents is fast over taking DUI with alcohol.
I believe it, one fellow I worked with framing houses managed to get stoned and run into a train at a crossing that was sitting parked on the tracks.
His excuse was, "What train?" and "OH THAT TRAIN, I didn't see it maaaan!"
The boy stoned at work somehow managed to shoot a 3 1/2 inch nail from a nail gun through his hand and nailed it to a rafter, then managed to plant one in his thigh putting in windbraces.
Dang if I didn't stay well outside is man killer arc LOL
