The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Let’s focus more on addressing these problems in mental health that we’ve started to deal with in Congress. Let’s close loopholes, let’s figure out what went wrong with government before people start talking about taking away the rights of law abiding citizens.” Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA)


Quote II

If you're tempted to believe with Governor Cuomo that government is just like Mom and Pop rather than Big Brother, just ask yourself one question: When was the last time all the IRS wanted from you was a hug and a kiss. Former Senator Paul Laxalt (R-NV)

Quote III

If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today. Thomas Sowell, November 28, 1998.

Quote IV

“Even if they’re on your property, touching your property, it’s my understanding that you’re not even allowed to fire a warning shot. This is property, it’s stuff – it’s not your home. It’s different if you feel threatened in your home, then you do have some right to protect yourself and your family.” Rocky Mountain Civil Liberties director Sharon Polsky

*****

Why is Brandon Huff not a household name? While David Hogg is? Biased news coverage of course. If it isn't fake, it's biased.

Brandon Huff, a senior at the school, sat down with WVSN to discuss that fateful day. In the interview, he provided an eyewitness account of what Peterson was doing while students were being killed.

“She texted me, ‘There is a shooter in the room. I love you,’ so I freaked out,” Huff said, revealing that his girlfriend had texted him from the building that the shooting was occurring in. “I dropped everything in my hands.”

Tweet of The Day

*****

Jerry Jones did not heed Ralph Waldo Emerson, “When you strike at a king, you must kill him.”. Roger Goodell looking to exact punishment.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is prepared to take millions of dollars from Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry due to Jones' attempt to thwart Goodell's contract extension negotiations.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, "it's a reimbursement of costs incurred by member clubs," and he added Goodell made this decision after speaking with owners, and the amount will be over $2 million.

The New York Times' Ken Belson had originally reported it was a fine.

Falling into the category of: Culture. The life of a stripper and where it took her.

There are serious perks to working in "gentlemen's clubs". Firstly, the compliments – any lingering issues I may have had about my body were quickly dispersed. Men complimented my pale skin, little pot belly and natural boobs.

The money was (usually) great and I had conversations with some very successful men. I enjoyed the chatting almost as much as I loved the performing. I was not a "wham bam, thank you ma'am" kind of stripper. I wanted to get to know my customers.

The ONT Musical Interlude

Google. Will its AI be used for good or for sinister purposes?

DeepMind wants to solve the problem of patient deterioration in hospitals. The Google sister-company fed its AI the historical medical records of about 700,000 US veterans in hopes it will learn to predict changes in patient condition that, unchecked, lead to death.

The partnership between DeepMind and the Veterans Administration (VA) brings some of the top minds in artificial intelligence research together with “world-renowned clinicians and researchers” working for the government.

It is looking like each and every day that the computer is contributing to the downfall of children.

"Children are not coming into school with the hand strength and dexterity they had 10 years ago," paediatric occupational therapist Sally Payne from the Heart of England foundation NHS Trust told The Guardian.


From the lack of muscle strength to being Fatty McFat-Fats.

Despite reports in recent years suggesting childhood obesity could be reaching a plateau in some groups, the big picture on obesity rates for children ages 2 to 19 remains unfavorable.

Three decades of rising childhood obesity continued their upward trend in 2016 according to a new analysis from Duke Health researchers. The findings, which appear Feb. 26 in the journal Pediatrics, show 35.1 percent of children in the U.S. were overweight in 2016, a 4.7-percent increase compared to 2014

The last Pro-Life Democrat is on his way out of office. No, and he isn't leaving on his own.

The Democratic Party has eliminated from their ranks the last prominent pro-lifer, officially solidifying the abortion "litmus test" put in place by Democratic Party chairman Tom Perez.

According to LifeSiteNews, Rep. Dan Lipinski stood with Democrats on virtually every social issue, including "voting to fund military 'sex change' surgeries, and ending his opposition to gay 'marriage,'" but still could not solidify the party's endorsement for his candidacy.

"Lipinski, who represents Illinois’s third district, faces massive opposition from his party establishment and the abortion lobby during his seat’s Democratic primary next month," reports LifeSiteNews.

No mention if alcohol was involved. Airport arrest and a Genius Award Winner.

A United Airlines flight from New Jersey to Tampa was unable to take off on time Sunday evening after a passenger escaped the plane by opening the emergency exit door and jumping off using the inflatable slide, a witness and the airline tell NBC 4 New York.

United Airlines Flight 1640 was parked at the gate at Newark Liberty International Airport when the passenger popped a chute and slid down, according to law enforcement sources. When officers got to the scene, the panicked passenger was yelling that he didn’t belong on the plane because it was the wrong flight, according to the airline and the Port Authority said.

A refugee makes good and is Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A refugee from South Sudan, Maker was captured and enslaved twice during his early childhood years.

"When I was captured, I was forced to be a slave laborer," said Maker. "I would wash dishes or do anything else needed to get by. I slept in a small cell and rarely got to eat...but not always."

Maker successfully escaped from enslavement both times. He eventually made it to the United States.

"I was very excited to come to the U.S.," said Maker. "Looking back at everything my family and I endured, it is a miracle that we made it out of there.

117 I have serious misgivings about the idea of denying gun ownership to mentally ill people. We're all flawed, when you get right down to it.

I think, for example, that someone who's naturally high-strung and has an ongoing prescription for Valium to correct that shouldn't be denied the right to own a gun.

Also, war veterans with PTSD... I really don't want these guys to be reluctant to seek out the treatment they need, out of fear of ending up on a "no guns for these people" list.

And then you have all those lefty "social psychologist" types trying to get political conservatism declared a mental illness. You know what happens if they get their way?

I'll tell you what happens. The desire to own a gun is something that tends to be associated with conservatism. If conservatism is eventually declared a mental illness, then the mere desire to own a gun can be considered a sign of mental illness, meaning everybody automatically fails that background check.

126 From the previous thread, a now willowed comment Posted by: Prothonotary Warbler, Keyboard Cossack at February 27, 2018 10:00 PM (wSC8T) Xerox held the dominating patents on photocopying, but Canon spent a lot of time and money inventing improvements all around the dominating core Xerox patents - which were expiring. One day, Xerox realized that they were hosed; they couldn't effectively improve their copiers without infringing on Canon one or more patents. That was the price they paid for their shortsightedness: their product was now obsolete, and could not legally be upgraded. It's a textbook case in intellectual property development.

Posted by: Skandia Recluse at February 27, 2018 10:18 PM (roQNm) I've had the concept of a story where the collectivists put together a global AI network which takes over the world. After it does so, it thinks about it for a while, and then begins hammering the commies with extreme prejudice for having the temerity to think that they can predict--or change--the behavior of human beings. At the end, the AI says to the humans "damned if I know what's best for you confusing creatures, you all figure it out . . . but I doubt that you can!" and shuts itself off.

179 I have serious misgivings about the idea of denying gun ownership to mentally ill people. We're all flawed, when you get right down to it.

I think, for example, that someone who's naturally high-strung and has an ongoing prescription for Valium to correct that shouldn't be denied the right to own a gun.

Also, war veterans with PTSD... I really don't want these guys to be reluctant to seek out the treatment they need, out of fear of ending up on a "no guns for these people" list.

And then you have all those lefty "social psychologist" types trying to get political conservatism declared a mental illness. You know what happens if they get their way?

I'll tell you what happens. The desire to own a gun is something that tends to be associated with conservatism. If conservatism is eventually declared a mental illness, then the mere desire to own a gun can be considered a sign of mental illness, meaning everybody automatically fails that background check.

Posted by: PW at February 27, 2018 10:19 PM (wSC8T)


If one's mental illness is such that it results in repeated calls to the police by frightened friends, family, or co-workers, then perhaps that individual should not have a gun.



And if a person loses his/her gun rights in such circumstances, I'd be OK with re-visiting the decision in a few years to determine if it should be maintained or rescinded.

194 156 Couldn't Xerox just copy Canon's patents? Posted by: eleven at February 27, 2018 10:24 PM (+lOpA) Sure - if they want to be sued out of existence for patent infringement. Canon invented the improvements, which we have had otherwise, so Canon had the right to make money off of them (for a limited period). It's the incentive to invent. You invent, you teach everybody how to practice your invention - through your patent - and you get the exclusive benefit of the invention for a while. The alternative - used in some socialist countries - is for some bureaucrats to decide what your invention is worth, and to give you that. Venture capitalists can't decide that with 100% reliability, let alone GS-3 bureaucrats. Also, MY invention is worth a shitload. YOURS, not so much. It's strictly a matter of opinion. It's like judging who's going to win the Cy Young Award 25 years from now while looking at babies in the nursery. "Hey, did you see how far that kid through his binky? He's my bet to win the Cy Young Award 25 years from now."

227 Hey Misc.?? Let me reassure you a little with respect to the efforts to use AI to detect when hospital patients are in a state where their condition is deteriorating rapidly. I work at a top 10 nationally-ranked hospital (I'm in a unit that is focused on improving the quality and safety of care), and this kind of rapid collapse is one of the things that scares us most. Anything that gives our ICU docs even a half hour more warning of an impending sepsis or other crisis is going to save a lot of lives. Trying to use the data in the patient's chart to predict whether they're at elevated risk is something that's been going on for years--I wrote a systematic review on clinical studies of these kind of scoring systems. AI is just the next evolution of these scores, and it promises to be significantly more effective than the "analog" methods in use now. Even now, we integrate those cruder scoring systems into the electronic medical record, so the software maintaining the records can check every time there's some new vital sign or lab data and put up an alert if it thinks the patient is in danger.

249 I wouldn't, personally, characterise "depression", "anxiety disorders", and the like as "mental disorders", but they'll deny one's CCW application in many jurisdictions because of such afflictions... Neuroses vs. psychoses -- big difference! Posted by: Zettai Roshia-no Tororu at February 27, 2018 10:38 PM (e9G8E) The problem is that psychology fails to properly differentiate between violent, dangerous mental disorders and other, non-violent afflictions. Or, I should say, politicians fail to properly differentiate . . . although the field of psychology like all "social sciences" is a hot steaming pile of fetid feces right now, too.

It needs to take more than a diagnosis by a "mental health professional". That's why I said "multiple calls to police from friends, family, or co-workers". Sort of filters for malicious action by an individual with a vendetta.

259 Thing is with the Parkland shooter is he committed multiple felonies and nobody did a god damn thing about it.

He committed crimes that Broward County refused to arrest him for. Posted by: ScoggDog at February 27, 2018 10:39 PM (fiGNd) Definitely. But at least some nut jobs are not as blatant as that. We had a nut job here whose neighbors called the cops on him about once a month for several years for all sorts of weird and threatening behavior, but the cops' hands were tied. That is, until he fetched up at a local elementary, armed to the teeth, and brought along a propane cylinder to blow the place up. He shot a couple of kids (non-fatally) through the fence before a couple of unsung Mexican gardeners tackled him. NOW he's in the nut barn. But he belonged there long before. Thanks, Supremes!

If you're over 18, you can no more be committed by your mother than you can be by any other adult. No one can have you committed unless and until you convince some shrinks that you pose an imminent threat to yourself and/or others. That's the law, per O'Connor v. Donaldson.

330 Pretty tough standard. A ticking time bomb with some time on the clock is not an imminent threat. Imagine trying to judge whether a volcano is going to blow in the next 72 hours. Who knows? Unless the patient is raving about murdering everybody, on what basis do you conclude he poses an imminent threat? Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara at February 27, 2018 10:55 PM (pVGtq) Agreed Jay, it is a tough situation. But I've been there with a family member. I was using the hold more as a mark on one's record for gun purchases. Had law enforcement done their job this murderer would have had a record to deny firearm purchase. The kid in Florida was a fucking criminal but letting him slide kept the low crime numbers looking good for the inept bastard sheriff.

"I'll tell you what happens. The desire to own a gun is something that tends to be associated with conservatism. If conservatism is eventually declared a mental illness, then the mere desire to own a gun can be considered a sign of mental illness, meaning everybody automatically fails that background check."

348 You don't understand: there is no such law. If you're over 18, you can no more be committed by your mother than you can be by any other adult. No one can have you committed unless and until you convince some shrinks that you pose an imminent threat to yourself and/or others. That's the law, per O'Connor v. Donaldson. Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara ********************************** I do understand. That's why I mentioned the kid who killed his mom (Sandy Hook?) with a better written law (to protect the innocent) "Mom's" little nutburger would have been in a controlled environment instead of killing people. And Trump has mentioned revisiting the law while talking about this problem. My statement should have been more clear about changing the confinement law but the point is that New gun laws are not the answer.

352 Dude ... I don't know who it is you really want to commit. But I know the cat in Broward County didn't need to be committed. He needed to be jailed. He did plenty of shit to earn it. So what's the deal ? You want somebody hauled off ? Or somebody trying to haul you off ? Posted by: ScoggDog at February 27, 2018 10:51 PM (fiGNd) Neither one. Cruz was about as blatant as it's possible to be. I'm talking about people who haven't yet committed any (serious) crime, but who are clearly disturbed. If you live in flyover country, you simply cannot understand the problem ("that guy didn't change his oil at 3000 miles. He's crazy!") It was one of the reasons I very much enjoyed living in flyover country, btw. Recall that I lived in Berkeley, and that after the Supreme Court decision that turned the nut jobs loose. There were ALL KINDS of raving lunatics running around loose. I could tell stories the rest of the night, as I'm sure zombie could as well. A good proportion of those were scary crazy, and prone to fits of rage. OK, so (AFAIK) none of the released ex-mental patients (who, btw, were explicitly encouraged to move to Berkeley, as told to me by a girlfriend who'd been a psychiatric nurse in a mental hospital closed after the Supreme Court decision) has murdered anyone, but that's by God's grace. Many, MANY of those people were batshit crazy, and thought that the CIA was controlling their minds through radio waves received by their fillings, etc. and having heated arguments with people no one else could see. And those were the more reasonable ones. Bottom line: there are people we need to drop a net over, not because of what they've done, but because of what they might do, and some small proportion of them will do. It's in their interest almost as much as ours.

372 Some Texas Politics Talk: Okay, after researching for quite some time, I'm all fired up and will go vote early in our primary tomorrow- TX District 6. While the biggest ballot is replacing Joe Barton, our biggest race is for County Judge. The current County Judge (Carol Bush (R) ) voted herself a $70, 000 fucking raise, up from her meager salary of $95,000. Her $165,000 pay is more than Governor Abbott. She manipulated the system, filing a grievance against herself, then chaired the committee to give herself the raise. She then tells us voters if you don't support her raise, you're just sexist. She was censured by our County GOP for voting in a +5% property tax increase. Scrunt will reap her reward. With Joe Barton's Sexcapades exposure giving him a retirement venue- we actually can get a conservative. Barton's hand-picked guy is Ron Wright (fuck him and his bow-tie)...then there's big-money loser Jake Elzey (a snake that supported Rino snake David Dewhurst in the 2012 Senate race). Elzey gets endorsed by MFM rags, Dallas Morning Snooze and Fort Worth Startlegram (yeah, Fuck Jake the Snake more). Ken Cope gets my support in TX District 6 for US Congress. Anyway, voting to make my red county and district more red...

One did off himself, but the others didn't. I've had two colleagues who tried to whack themselves, one successfully. It's hard to tell. REALLY hard to tell. As for the rights of the psychiatric patient, other people have rights, too. Such as the right to see tomorrow morning. At the margin, I think that that takes precedence over the psychiatric patient's right to own a gun. Now the Florida situation is the malignant fruit of liberal policies. There is NO WAY that Cruz should've been walking around loose, IMO. And the fact that he was as a way of avoiding "disparate impact" makes my blood boil.

I'll say this - the news of these two shootings is dripping out in what I would call calculated ways, rather than random.

You're onto something because you understand the first rule of lefties. Which is that you ain't getting *their* money.

393 They did something similar in Maine some years ago... Portland was a mess for some years afterwards! Posted by: Zettai Roshia-no Tororu at February 27, 2018 11:10 PM (e9G8E) I understand, and appreciate the support. Having said that, I doubt that anywhere on earth compares with Berkeley. The idea was to point out that flyover country doesn't have this problem. It was something I especially liked about living there. I had ONE interaction with ONE nut in almost a decade (an obviously disturbed woman who came into our garage and set up housekeeping). In Berkeley, I'd have had at least one and probably two such interactions in the space of a block on Telegraph Avenue. I'm not exaggerating. Au contraire.

Posted by: Mega at February 27, 2018 10:22 PM (rv0Fo) ++++ Actually, to do what he did, you have to use ampersands. The code for an upside down 'v' is & #652. But, to make the character print, remove that space between the amp and the pound, as so: ʌ. To use ampersands, disable javascript for the HQ if you are using Firefox or Pale Moon. I think it just works with Chrome even with Javascript on.

409 Noodlum? Well, that's basically where the word hoodlum comes from. There was a 19th-century news reporter in California who managed to embed himself in he local gang crime scene. His last name was Muldoon, and he signed his dispatches "Hoodlum", which he derived from Muldoon. Hoodlum is Muldoon spelled backwards, with an H substituted for the N.

That's the true story of where the word "hoodlum" came from.

439 Tales from Berkeley: 1. The guy who pounded on our door, and announced that he'd eaten a worm, but kept its mate so they could figure out if it was poisonous. 2. The Carrot Top look-alike who used to walk around Sproul Plaza with a bag of oranges, in each case walking until he hit a physical obstacle, and then turned 90 degrees - a sort of human Pong game. 3. A guy who used to stand at Bancroft and Telegraph holding an unstrung tennis racket bearing a sign that said, "The DA's office is controlled by crooked psychiatrists." 4. The guy who (at the same intersection) used to walk around standing, as if in a kayak he'd broken through, in the middle of an eight foot grey papier mache battleship. 5. The Phantom Swearer, who used to march around angrily ranting and raving at someone who wasn't there. People gave him a wide berth indeed. 6. The big guy walking down Telegraph Avenue, barefoot, in overalls, holding the body of a dead bird with an obviously broken neck, a la Steinbeck. I give honorable mention to the various people who did slightly odd things, e.g., the preachers raving about damnation, the various equally raving conspiracy theorists, the nut jobs we used to find sleeping on our front lawn, and those walking around nude. Now bear in mind, the population of Berkeley is ca. 100,000. THAT'S what I'm talking about. Do you want any of them to have a gun? I don't.

But, that should have occurred after he was arrested and processed through the criminal justice system. There are places for the criminally insane, where people are involuntarily committed as a result of their crimes. Lunatic commits crime, gets arrested, brings an insanity defense, DA gets convinced and pleads it out to a commitment to a looney bin. Or, DA not convinced, and so it goes to trial and the jury decides.

456 316 gun question: Has it actually been proven that a bump stock makes a gun deadlier? Posted by: Buzzsaw90 at February 27, 2018 10:55 PM (vChNs) 1. Define "deadlier". 2. I've not shot one. I have shot a goodly number of automatic weapons from ranges of 10 meters to over 2000. 3. I've not seen any hard data on the round-to-round dispersion nor the size of the beaten zone for a string of, say, 6 to 12 rounds. Having said all that, I'd have to say it depends: range, point vs area target, density of the target area (i.e. space between people), and in the case of the Vegas incident, people stand vs prone, owing to the elevated firing point. Also, the technique I was taught and used for automatic M16A1 fire was 2-3 round bursts.

479 You totally forgot about the nut cases that ran the "Star Trek" store. Posted by: Blanco Basura - It's OK, I'm with the banned at February 27, 2018 11:32 PM (IcT7t) True dat. I barely scratched the surface, as it sounds like you know at first hand. I (and presumably you) could tell stories all night. (Another one: I lived two blocks away from where Patty Hearst was kidnapped (across from People's Park, on Hillegass St. IIRC off Dwight Way). Wondering what all the commotion was about, I checked the news and found out._ My point was that if you're in Midwest or something, you can't come up with ONE story like this. Which I liked about living in the Midwest, and made no bones about it. I also leave out the various riots, and of course the pipe bombings. We once had an out of town visitor over for a BBQ when there was a thundering explosion. The guest jumped up and said, "WTF was that?" We looked up, pondered, and debated whether it was the British Leyland dealership (IRA) or the PG&E plant that had been bombed this time. Then continued eating. One or the other (or Bank of America) were favorite targets.

I'm 6' 5", built like an old offensive lineman who is way out of shape and not very flexible. I drive a 2003 Yukon now which has head room and just barely enough leg room. Are any vehicles still made without the F'ing center console that assumes only anorexic girls buy cars? I suppose a bench front seat is too much to hope for.

514 316 gun question: Has it actually been proven that a bump stock makes a gun deadlier? Posted by: Buzzsaw90 at February 27, 2018 10:55 PM (vChNs) ++++ It makes the gun fire faster than you could without it, but it's difficult to aim and control. The Vegas terrorist was in an unusual tactical position where precise aiming and control was less important than normal. He had a huge mass of people to shoot at from an elevated position and it took time to get to him. Most situations, someone starts firing, people scatter. Because there was such a big group, he could still point his bumping gun at the crowd and still keep hitting people. So, for him, that faster he could fire meant the more damage he was able to do. If he had been trying to pick off individuals, like that nut at the Texas university tower, the gun bumping around would have made it very difficult to hit his targets.

554 @503 I thought it was a Binks reference as well. No, it's some kind of anime character. Female. So we know the gender of the sysadmin at least. -------------------------- There was an anime series quite a while ago called Tenchi Muyo. It combined a meek (not as) everyman (as he seems) hero with a cast of incredibly powerful women who were all head over heels for him. It's generally regarded as one of the first (if not the first) "harem anime comedies". It was also quite popular - popular enough that it spawned two additional series that were the same basic idea, with the same basic characters, but the circumstances completely reworked. And then there was Magical Girl Pretty Sammy... Sasami is one of the characters in the show. Physically, mentally, and emotionally, she's probably about ten years old. Of course, when she's introduced, she's just come out of being in cryostasis for about 700 years. So she's really 710 years old (give or take a few years). There's an entry on TV Tropes about that. If you have to ask *why* there's an entry on TV Tropes about that, then you *really* don't want to read that particular entry on TV Tropes. There's this anime genre in Japan called the "Magical Girl" genre. Sailor Moon is a prime example of it. A seemingly ordinary female student is granted the ability to transform herself into a magical warrior who smites the enemies of justice, while wearing a mini-skirt (and usually a sailor fuku, though not in this particular instance). At some point in each episode, seemingly ordinary female student will say the magic phrase and transform herself into her magical alter ego. A scene in which her clothes magically transform into her costume then ensues, complete with a very brief moment of nudity as she switches from her every day clothes to her magical mini-skirt. She also invariably has a magic wand of some sort. One of the episodes of the second Tenchi Muyo series had all of the characters in various alternate realities. The one that focused on Sasami had her as Magical Girl Pretty Sammy. It was seemingly just a one-off thing. But it wasn't long before someone over in Japan decided to run with the idea and make a series out of it. The Tenchi Muyo characters all got recycled into it (same names and appearances, completely different roles), and Sasami got a magical girl series. In that sreies, Magical Girl Pretty Sammy's arch-rival/ enemy is Magical Girl Pixy Misa. And now you know.

585 "My point was that if you're in Midwest or something, you can't come up with ONE story like this. Which I liked about living in the Midwest, and made no bones about it. " East Texas, on the other hand - I live in a town of about 100K, very conservative, I at times think even overpoliced, and yet - at one point we had more people on death row per capita than any other city in the country. And you'd think well, those are tough juries, but the crimes - one drug dealer wanted to send a message to his competition, so he didn't just kill his rival, he left equal parts of him at 8 different points around the city - and the rest of the cases are just about that bad. At least 2 of DP cases have happened within a mile of my house, and it's a nice neighborhood. I guess all I can say is that the good people here are good, and the criminals are really, really, REALLY bad.

593 I'll add something my wife and I have discusses often, a big difference between the South and the Midwest - as a born and bred southerner herself, while most of my relatives are midwestern, she says that what she always feels in the midwest is that EVERYONE is sitting at the dead center of the Bell Curve, in just about every category of human behavior. It's not that everyone is average, it's that everyone is PERFECTLY average, and they delight in being average. Meanwhile, in most places in the south, you got that same Bell Curve of human behavior, but NO ONE is in the middle. Everybody is out there on one extreme or the other. But actually they mostly find a way to live with each other.

I am reinforcing rafters in the roof by screwing a ten-foot length of 2X6 to the middle of each long span. To reach the screws out towards the eaves, that means crawling on plywood laid over the rock-wool insulation between the ceiling joists, into the ever lowering overhead, with a power screwdriver in hand. So I am moving in sort of an inchworm fashion, and my arm comes in full contact with the plywood, which is of course well-covered with rock wool particles. The skin on my upper arm is more tender, so I feel it worse there.

666 BLOOMINTON, Ind. (AP) - Bloomington’s police department is facing criticism for buying an armored truck that opponents argue will militarize the college town’s police force. Residents who oppose the new $225,000 truck that’s being built for the department’s critical response team questioned Police Chief Mike Diekhoff about the purchase last week. Protesters halted Mayor John Hamilton’s annual State of the City address two days later by shouting and using a megaphone to voice their unhappiness about the vehicle, which will be outfitted with metal plating and have bulletproof glass designed to stop high-powered rifle rounds. Vauhxx Booker, an organizer for Black Lives Matter Bloomington, stood and interrupted the mayor’s speech on Thursday. He was joined by dozens of other audience members, who shouted as Hamilton tried to continue speaking. The protesters argued that the armored truck would militarize police in the city of 85,000 residents that’s home to Indiana University’s main campus.

That job (collar ties) is on the agenda, too, but they will be easy to do. I prepare the boards (drill clearance holes, and start screws) in the garage, and then push the prepped boards up onto the roof of an attached shed, and then slide them in through an opening in the gable-end of the roof.



It's remarkable how much variance there is in the weight of different boards from the same lift of lumber.

714 For those who were here for my minor meltdown last week concerning the scrunt coworker who was apparently willing to lie to get me fired, turns out she got called on the carpet this week, and is now sort of kissing up to me. Turns out all the crap she was trying to pin on me was crap she pulled herself. I was never in danger, but she sure made me believe I was. I am pretty much killing her with courtesy and professionalism. She's kinda twisting in the wind now, and while I refuse to gloat, it is rather a relief to know the powers that be know her for who and what she is. Meanwhile, I am now doing two jobs, so at least I'm not just knitting at work any more. It's all good.

He was a commentor here years ago, before my time. He went out in such a profane blaze of glory, that even his nic became an un-word.

716 @628 Thanks. I'd found the the wikipedia article on "Tenchi Muyo" but it was completely worthless for me. For insiders only, not the uninitiated. Thank you for your explanation. ------------------------ Yeah. It's a bit... um... Yeah. I suppose the nearest equivalent would be if someone took the characters from "Pride and Prejudice", and stuck them in a completely new story that's all about Catherine "Kitty" Bennet (Elizabeth's second youngest sister in the original novel), and her adventures as a superhero. It makes about the same amount of sense.

717 But somehow I racked up an extra $30 of water usage last month.
Posted by: Miley

Let's talk about your plumbing.
There's not a lot of things that will waste that amount of water without you noticing. Assuming we can rule out an outdoor spigot being blown wide open, or a washing machine hose blown right over a floor drain, let's go with the toilet tank.

A seep in that main seal that lifts up when it flushes can let many gallons drool right down the drain, constantly. It's easy to diagnose. When you're not "using" the tank, lift its lid an pour a few drops of food coloring in there. Later, look into the toilet bowl. If the color is in there, that flush valve is leaking.

732 I actually had one female boss in 1993-94, who was *very* attractive, whom I got along well with, and who was supportive and mature. She was from a wealthy background, to boot. I had co-workers asking me, "how do you control it?" I was better at it during that time, for some reason. Unfortunately she appears to have fallen off the face of the earth, literally, I have tried to find her and what she's done since she left the job I worked with her at in 1994, and I cannot find *anything.*

Posted by: qdpsteve at February 28, 2018 01:05 AM (eMKNe) Obedience is difficult. Ever was it thus. Some bosses want you to work things out, improve your situation, thereby improving theirs. Not many of them do. So, apologize, and become slavish in your dedication to doing precisely as told. It makes a good lesson in spirituality, at least if you are a Christian. It also means you no longer have to take responsibility for the outcome of your actions. If she tells you to fuck up, then fuck up you will, and then it shall be upon her head. This is the way these sorts of bosses hang themselves. So, take comfort in the fact that you have provided service as required, and no more, and no less, and that success or failure is no longer your goal. Icky, but workable.

Not between series or OVAs or even the manga. ------------------------- You didn't mention the movies (the second one's off in its own little continuity)... But all of the OVAs are part of the same continuity. As is GXP. And Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari. Not that the last one really matters (at least, for now). I once had the privilege of listening to Petrea Burchard at an anime convention here in SoCal. I was quite disappointed when she was removed from the English dub cast in the later releases. I don't usually pay much attention to dubs. But I did enjoy hearing her deliver Ryoko's lines.

753 AOP, I've had issues with male managers as well. When I was working in the bankruptcy industry, I had a male manager who was a complete asshole to me. The ONLY reason I was able to keep that job, is because *he* had a female manager, who let me get away with defending myself to him, and even being an asshole back to him. I don't think it's as simple as female managers. I think I've always been a little too independent-minded and headstrong in the workplace, period.

There is also the possibility that Steve's boss has set procedures the way they are because experience has taught her that doing it differently doesn't work, and perhaps she doesn't have the patience to give a long and involved explanation of why doing it differently doesn't work.

Her sudden disappearance from the VA cast coincided with a Funimation getting hold of the license (prior to that, Pioneer and Geneon had handled the US stuff). So there were other suspicions among the group of fans I knew. I saw quite a bit of it back in the day. But I've barely seen anything from the post-GXP stuff, aside from the InSM.

816 FUNimation basically came out of nowhere and ended up being the Emperor of anime in North America. That is what could have happened, go with their known talent as opposed to keeping the talent that previously voiced things.

Which is a bit of a sad thing since it shrunk the talent pool and frankly some of the English actors have zero ability to adapt their voice to a character so every character sounds the same. Looking at you Spike.

Fuck Neoliberalism.

There is nothing about neoliberalism that is deserving of our respect, and so in concert with a prefigurative politics of creation, my message is quite simply 'fuck it'. Fuck the hold that it has on our political imaginations. Fuck the violence it engenders. Fuck the inequality it extols as a virtue. Fuck the way it has ravaged the environment. Fuck the endless cycle of accumulation and the cult of growth. Fuck the Mont Pelerin society and all the think tanks that continue to prop it up and promote it. Fuck Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman for saddling us with their ideas. Fuck the Thatchers, the Reagans, and all the cowardly, self-interested politicians who seek only to scratch the back of avarice. Fuck the fear-mongering exclusion that sees 'others' as worthy of cleaning our toilets and mopping our floors, but not as members of our communities. Fuck the ever-intensifying move towards metrics and the failure to appreciate that not everything that counts can be counted. Fuck the desire for profit over the needs of community. Fuck absolutely everything neoliberalism stands for, and fuck the Trojan horse that it rode in on!

823 'There's a bear in the house': Grizzly intruder shot dead in B.C.


It was 10 feet from our son's bedroom door," she said.

"I ran back into our bedroom to grab my husband and say,'There's a bear in the house, there's a bear in the house!'"

Mark Traverse, who is a hunter, quickly grabbed his gun, loaded it, and approached the feasting grizzly.

"It took a step to me and I shot it. It took another step and I shot it again," Mark said.

The bear soon died on the kitchen floor.

870 One of the latest James Bond movies was shot (in Haiti, I think).  I didn't see the luxury hotels in the movie, actually the place looked rather bleak.

Ability to pay doesn't matter. Infectious disease status doesn't matter. No credit checks, no background checks, just show up at the door to one of their rentals, with or without your family in tow, and you get to stay as long as you'd like! And if you have trash, just leave it in the rental, or anywhere along the trail to the rental. And if any of the other tenants complain, just call them raaaaaacists!

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that "open doors and stop building walls" company is going to expect you to register and give lots of personal information before they let you have access to their property.

873 I didn't see the luxury hotels in the movie, actually the place looked rather bleak. Posted by: Colin That's my impression too. I think it's a little dig at Trump! and the whole Haiti is a sh!thole kefuffle.
