What the hell, GS.  I'm gone for a week and a half in about 24 hours.

It's Friday and I am bored.  The boss just made me go outside and mow the grass, but it hasn't rained in so long that it was more like mowing dirt.

I'm reading about Eris now.  Both the goddess and the planet... Because Pluto just got demoted again.  Now Eris is the biggest dwarf planet and Pluto is number two.

I think there's an anti-Pluto conspiracy.
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: nacho on June 15, 2007, 03:55:03 PM
So the guy who discovered Eris wanted to call it Xena.  His justification is that it's okay to name something after pop culture because "Pluto is named after a cartoon."

I think it's important for our genius astronomers to not know what the planets are named after.

Then there's Jericho.  I loved the leaked pilot, then they remade it and fagged it up.  The show flounders and gets cancelled... But the write-in campaign gets it seven more episodes.  And, just today, they brought it out to the full 13 new episodes.  So it gets a second chance...  Is it actually a good show?

Post by: nacho on June 15, 2007, 05:23:18 PM
Yeah.  Really promising Pilot Mark 1.  Then they did Pilot Mark 2 where all the dark stuff was taken out.  So instead of killing the sheriff at the end of the first episode, the prisoners take him hostage and everything works out. 

The internet is so slow at work (12 minutes to load amazon.com), I can't review the old GS Jericho thread:

I can't access Myspace from work.  Or much of anything else.  I'm reduced to watching that "Badgers" thing. 

I leave at 5:30, though.  An hour train ride to the distant suburbs for movies.  Blah.  I can go home and do that and die like a real person.  Maybe mix my own blood with vodka and drink it real fast.  Stuff like that.

Well, I fully plan on getting up early tomorrow and going to the bank to apply for a loan.  Since I've never applied for one before, I'm not sure how it will go... we'll see!

Hopefully they'll give me a big, fat blank check that I can run over to the motorcycle dealership and cash out for a bike.

Tonight.... beer and poker if I'm lucky.

Dunno... probably sometime after racing's over in October.  We'll see how much riding time I get in between now and then because that's going to play a pretty big part of it as well.  I gotta get some miles under my belt before I try anything too drastic.

I have had nothing but idiot calls today and it's about to drive me insane. 

The last call: "Do I have any subscriptions with you?"

"What's your name?"

"Blah blah, but it's not under my name."

"What name are the subscriptions under?"

"I don't know.  But can you let me know?"

"Do you have a subscriber number?  An address?  Do you have any current mailings from us?"

No...she didn't.  Nothing.  And, since I couldn't help her, she went right to insane ranting.  Been of that same caliber since 9:30.

A one... two-- A one... two... three... four...

Half a bee, philosophically,
Must, ipso facto, half not be.
But half the bee has got to be
Vis a vis, its entity. D'you see?

But can a bee be said to be
Or not to be an entire bee
When half the bee is not a bee
Due to some ancient injury?

La dee dee, one two three,
Eric the half a bee.
A B C D E F G,
Eric the half a bee.

Is this wretched demi-bee,
Half-asleep upon my knee,
Some freak from a menagerie?
No! It's Eric the half a bee!

Fiddle de dum, Fiddle de dee,
Eric the half a bee.
Ho ho ho, tee hee hee,
Eric the half a bee.

I love this hive, employee-ee,
Bisected accidentally,
One summer afternoon by me,
I love him carnally.

He loves him carnally,
Semi-carnally.
The end.

Cyril Connelly?
No; semi-carnally!
Oh.

Cyril Connelly.

I just met a Scottish woman at a party.  She teaches upper level english at the local U.  Wild accent.  At first I thought she was talking with food in her mouth.

So...you've never heard the Scottish accent before, fajwat?

Last night I dreamed guy I knew stopped trimming his beard, and when he finished talking he'd look up and you'd see this sopping wet mass of hair hanging over his mouth.  It sounded kind of like that.

But she was very well spoken, and kept talking about sex.  So I got over the accent.  But I am now certain that that accent is the inspiration for some sci-fi sea creature/alien accents.

I'm in WVA with my grandparents.  well, actually, I got here at 3pm, watched them watch TV (and sleep intermittantly) until 7pm. then said, hey, I had brain surgery, I have to go to the hotel now.

So now I'm at the Wingate Inn in loverly Parkersburg.  some Michael Douglas movie is on HBO an I walked across to 7-11 and bought loads of beer... Which I've almost finished.

Also, the ATM's aren't taking my bank card.  Says to call my bank.  That's a nice way to start the weekend.  Because here's how this will go:

Tomorrow --

me:  I only have credit cards.  My ATM card isn't working.

Gfather:  HAHAHAHAHHA!!!!!

Me:  Uh...right.  So, can I borrow a few bucks so I don't have to charge two dollar items at 7-11?

Gfather:  Hahaha!  NO!

True story: I usually refuse to carry cash, and on the way back from Ohio, the assholes at the end of the turnpike got their jollies off lecturing me about not carrying it. I had to write a check for $1.50 to the state of Ohio.

Post by: nacho on July 07, 2007, 08:57:25 AM
I have charging small things. I feel like The Poor.

I went out a bit farther until I found an ATM that isn't branded to just accept the bank's passcard.  It was actually tough to do... No normal debit card ATM's on the outskirts of Parkersburg.  Guess they don't want people spending money here.

Or... Maybe cash really is dead.

And, Matt, what's a check?
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: fajwat on July 07, 2007, 11:02:32 AM
I carry between $100 and $400.  I used to carry more on vacation but now I have two accounts that I can pull the max $300 out of each day, so there's not as much need to pre-load cash.

Finally he gets it.  And he goes -- "Well, I've done this already.  But how do I get my article?"

A Murder of Crows.

Some ancient beliefs [cross-cultural] state that crows carry the soul into the after-world.

Ergo, a "murder" or "death" would be followed by a group of crows, coming to transport the soul.

Hence the collective noun, a "murder" of crows.

A storm of tornadoes = Monkey is class.

The City of Kinney, Minnesota seceded from the Union on July 13, 1977, to form the Republic of Kinney.

...

The City of Kinney will celebrate the 30th Anniversary of its "independence" as the Republic of Kinney during the weekend of July 13-15, 2007

City of Kinney
Clerk’s Office
KINNEY, MINNESOTA 55758

July 13, 1977

Honorable Cyrus Vance
Secretary of State
Washington, D.C.

BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Kinney, in Kinney, Minnesota, has decided to secede from the United States of America, and become a foreign country. Our area is large enough for it. We are twelve square blocks, three blocks wide and four blocks long. We will be similar to Monaco. It is much easier to get assistance as a foreign country, which we need badly, and there is no paper work to worry about. If necessary, we will be glad to declare war and lose. However, if this is a requirement, we would appreciate being able to surrender real quick, as our Mayor works as a nurse in a hospital, and most of our council members work in a nearby mine and cannot get much time off from work.

CITY COUNCIL OF VILLAGE OF KINNEY
Mary Anderson, Mayor
Margaret Medure, Clerk
Al Helmin, Councilman
Lloyd Linnell, Councilman

'Republic of Kinney' celebration recalls day Minn. town 'seceded'

Associated Press
Jul. 9, 2007 04:38 PM
KINNEY, Minn. - It's been 30 years since this tiny Iron Range town made national news when it jokingly seceded from the United States, and residents are getting ready to celebrate their brief moment in the sun.

"Be it resolved that the City Council of the City of Kinney in Kinney, Minnesota, has decided to secede from the United States of America, and become a foreign country," city officials wrote on July 13, 1977, to U.S. Secretary of State Cyrus Vance.

The tongue-in-cheek secession was prompted by a real problem, the city's inability to obtain $186,000 in federal or state financial assistance to repair its crumbling water system.

   


Kinney residents ran with the joke. They printed up fake passports and issued them to just about anyone who asked for one and some who didn't, including Tonight Show host Johnny Carson.

In 11 months, the town issued 1,600 passports. Bearers were guaranteed safe passage through city borders, a free slice of the traditional Slovenian cake called potica, and a 10-cent cup of coffee at Mary's Bar.

Kinney also commissioned a navy, composed of one canoe but no sailors. The town sent then-Gov. Rudy Perpich an official request to supply the Republic with its own set of bocce balls. Frozen foods entrepreneur Jeno Paulucci, an Iron Range native, got in on the joke when he gave Kinney its first "foreign aid" - a used 1974 Ford LTD police car with 50,000 miles.

All the hijinks generated media interest from around the country, which in turn had the intended effect - eventually, the state of Minnesota coughed up $198,000 for the water system.

"People laughed about it," said Barbara Wiltse, a Kinney resident for 40 years. "But we got what we wanted."

Starting Friday, the town of 151 residents will mark what some call the "Revolution on the Range" with a three-day celebration featuring a concert, fireworks, an ice cream social, street dance, potluck picnic and parade.

Coincidentally, city officials said they're trying to secure funding for an extension of water and sewer to another part of the town.

Said Sandy Husmann, who helped organize the festival: "We may have to start seceding again soon."

I really don't mind.  Of course there are problems but I've flipped back and forth on retrocession.  I'm sure there are plenty of horror scenarios but I still think DC can only improve.

The only basic problem issues as I see them are fairly intractable no matter who owns DC, but if they have a real state working their issues they might get some more traction. 

* adequate self-rule, which is hard because of the huge federal interest
* adequate taxes, except the fed property blocks so much of that that it's too tricky.  Also, feds seem to block some kind of common tax from being collected?  I forget which, but it seems like something radical would have to change, or congress will always be required to allocate funding to DC.
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: nacho on July 13, 2007, 06:37:43 PM
Yeah...it's basically dumping half a million disenfranchised blacks on Maryland while the Feds get all the quality real estate, and then hoping that Maryland's tax base can support the blow well enough to overhaul the infrastructure and turn DC into a city that isn't trapped in the 1980's.

Quote
I know a lot of you guys have had awful roommates in college or where ever. Since this is my first I am almost clueless as to if they are normal or if they are messing with me. I was hoping for some advice/help.

I don't exactly feel like writing a huge block of text on the matter so I will give highlights and you guys tell me if this is normal/slightly not and in return I will love you long time.

-They say they are going to cover a tab and when the tab comes they don't have any money, meaning, I am the only one with cash
-They buy, trade, and use drugs in the dorm
-They purposely make a mess with my stuff every day
-They eat all the food in my fridge or just unplug the cord
-They use my computer, spill food on it, spill drinks on it despite me not asking them to even use it
-They have friends stay over when I am out who use my towels to wipe themselves after sex with someone in (most likely) my bed
-They fart on my pillows
-They take my stuff and don't return it
-They go through my bills and bank information/files
-They use all my shampoo and soap
-They purposely put rotten food on my floor
-They make it ridiculously hot by turning up the temperature

At first, I thought, "Meh, this stuff has to be normal and I am just being anal." but even after my repeated asking to back off just a bit they still continued to do the same things.

I have lost all hope on what to do.

Dude...what the fuck?  Normal?  Does the poster also do those things?

I'm afraid to answer because I get responses like "UR STUPID I H8 U. UR DUM." and "Explain the dichotomy between man and chocolate! I will follow your well-reasoned and lengthy response with a two sentence response insulting your intelligence and questioning your sexuality." I think Matt's last response has gotten us a bit more back on track, though.

So, Monday work day. I don't even feel like I had a weekend. I'm 22 but today I feel like I'm 40. All I have to do is survive until Wednesday at 11am, and then I'm going to bike 250 miles to surprise the girlfriend, who's coming back to California on Thursday.

Also, the library world is stuck in 1996. I'm trying to tell these people that to make people actually want to use our website, you have to make it, you know, easy to use. But instead, they insist on having 50 different little items in the header which lead to about five different ways to get to the same information. It's a towering inferno of terror.

Depends on how I'm feeling. I'll try to do it in two or three days because I don't want to kill myself and be out sore for a week because I've only got, like, a month and a half until my big end-of-the year race. If I were to ride it without stopping (like, if someone in car was handing me food and water), it would take about 13 hours. I'm just doing it to, you know, relax and enjoy the coast. I even bought a tiny Casio camera to take along with me. I'll do a thread when I get back full of all the crap I find along the way, like dead hobos and used syringes!

"Ho-tel, mo-tel, Holi-day Inn". I'm going to travel light as fuck, so no trailer with tent or anything. That would be fun, though. Putter all up and down the coast, camping in all the hidden cliffs overlooking the ocean? Man. Maybe next summer. I'll work that into my schedule.

Actually, I could build up to it... Have you ever done a trip like that?  What's the longest you've gone, non-racing.
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: Tatertots on July 23, 2007, 04:46:38 PM
I did 100 miles in the mountains with 12,000 feet of climbing, so this little trip will be considerably easier. The trick is to maintain the milage for three days in the heat.

Anyone could build up to it -- definitely. There's plenty of old guys who retire and do trips like that where you just bike 70 miles a day at an easy recreational pace and go along the coast from Washington to Mexico. You don't even have to break a sweat, almost. All it takes is an investment of time to build up endurance. But it's well worth it, as I've mentioned way too many times here.

Like, when I first started, my longest rides were about 20 miles. After about a year, I could do 60, and this year, 80 is cake for a training ride. It's pretty cool how fast people can build endurance.

So her ass is okay.  They removed the scary thing from her colon, and they removed her appendix ("Just because it was there") and they coked her up with a double the normal dose of Dalaudid, or however you spell it.  But my aunt is such a pillhead (her ass problems are now blamed on the overuse of opiates) that the dalaudid did nothing.  We're in the post-op recovery room and my aunt is fully aware.  The nurse comes by and my aunt is 100% awake and talking and functional and the nurse goes, "Wow, I've never seen this before."

My aunt puts on her sad face and says, "More, please."

The nurse replies, "It'll kill you if I increase the dose!"

What the hell kinda person bakes cookies that for surgery on their ass they pass out?

"Please eat these and think of me and my diseased ass, which is now being sliced up in potentially life altering surgery to hopefully remove the cancer which may be there.  "

This huge monolithic piece of shit is driving me bonkers. Their code is so awful. It's just, god. It's worse than the phone calls that Nacho has to deal with. Take the worst of Nacho's phone calls, multiply by two, and extend it to last almost my entire working day. That's what this shit web app is like.

There, I feel a little better. *ahem*

I'm going to be one of those guys who hits his 30s at his dead-end job and loses it, holding up a bank with a banana wearing his underwear on his head.

And then I can break my brother out of prison! Oh, man, Prison Break is fun watching. I watched 4 episodes last night and still can't get enough. I'm aching to see T-Bag get what's coming to him. I'm channeling work stress into non-productive slovenly behaviors at home! Rock.

There's no way there's 4,000 people. 400, maybe. But no more than 1,000. No way.

Tyson, Sys Admin, and Tyson's Supervisor,

Please be in my office at 11am this morning.

Department Head

I get there and Tyson's Supervisor is already in the office, but Department Head asks me to "give them a second". I stand outside the office for ten minutes before Tyson's Supervisor says we're going to reschedule the meeting. So I go back to my office and work for 20 minutes, when my supervisor comes back to the office.

Me: What was that all about?

Sup.: She's concerned about the lack of communication in the department. Nothing major.

That's so full of shit.  I see essential people getting fired all the time.  I don't mean people who just think they're essential -- I mean really, actually damagingly essential and when they leave things break that week and stay broken for months or the project flat out dies or it gets outsourced to a series of bad outside firms who never make it anything like it was.

And generally those people who might as well be locked in a room by themselves -- whether by their own choice or because it appears to be necessary to get anything done -- have brain damaged, twisted software which needs to fail and be completely rewritten to match maintainability and end-user requirements.  So a lot of those essential people who are fired, even though it breaks stuff, are sometimes fired for good reasons and get good outcomes in the long run.

Even with all that -- don't kid yourself.  When the fuck did Management make decisions which were good for your projects, over what they wanted to do?  How reality based are you requiring mgmt to be?  Are they giving you 20% raises every year?  If not, then don't think they're even starting out with that special untouchably employed opinion of you.  If they do think of that way, you're still getting fired if they feel like it.

I've been fired probably a dozen times and I've had projects flat-out fail behind me.  I've seen other people's projects declared toxic (probably some of my own), where an official requirement -- even though it added at least 6 months to the release date -- was "Get rid of every line of Erik's code."   I've had the managers who begged for their directors to NOT fire me (and lost) call me up for years asking advice on their projects for years, even after they've changed jobs 2 or 3 times.

In October 2005 Kamm was sentenced to five years in prison for a string of sexual attacks on a 15-year-old girl. He claimed that she was one of his 84 mystical wives. He was convicted for aggravated sexual assault on the girl.

The assaults occurred when the girl was living within Kamm's Order of St. Charbel, a community (living in a compound) near Nowra, New South Wales. Kamm claimed to have received advice from the Blessed Virgin Mary that this girl should be chosen as one of 12 queens and 72 princesses who would all become his wives, with whom he would spawn a new human race after the world was cleansed and burnt by a ball of fire. Kamm himself continues to defend his polygamy, claiming to believe that Mary has instituted him to be the "new Abraham" spawning a numerous people.

Rosh Hashanah ain't about anyone rising, dude.  Eeesh.  hehe.

Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: nacho on September 12, 2007, 09:40:23 PM
Well, of course not.  I'm comparing Christianity to Judaism in that Christians say a five second prayer and fight each other for mashed potatoes. 

And we get more days off than the Jews, too.  We get a half dozen officially sanctioned government days off that don't involve you biting into your PTO simply to worship.

Quote
1971 June 30: crew exposed to vacuum of space : The crew of Soyuz 11, Georgi Dobrovolski, Viktor Patsayev and Vladislav Volkov, were killed after undocking from space station Salyut 1 after a three-week stay. A valve on their spacecraft had accidentally opened when the service module separated, letting their air leak out into space. The capsule reentered and landed normally, and their deaths were only discovered when it was opened by the recovery team.

1964 October 31: birdstrike : Theodore Freeman was killed when a goose smashed through the cockpit canopy of his T-38 jet trainer. Flying shards of Plexiglas entered the engine intake and caused the engine to flame out. Freeman ejected from the stricken aircraft, but was too close to the ground for his parachute to open properly. The creation of zero-zero ejection seats has eliminated this problem.

Quote
A Zero-zero ejection seat is an ejection seat designed to safely extract upward and land its occupant from a grounded stationary position (i.e., zero altitude and zero airspeed), specifically from aircraft cockpits. The zero-zero capability was developed to help aircrews escape upward from unrecoverable emergency situations during low altitude and/or low speed flight as well as ground mishaps. Before this capability, ejections had to be performed at minimum altitudes and airspeeds.

I believe it was a mix of blocking it out and trying to fight the onset of extreme shock.

Turns out he's torn his ligaments in both ankles, effectively 100% tears. 6 weeks in casts. He'll be doing well if he can do that parkouring stuff by next summer. Probably will need surgery.

That'll learn him.

I was at Fall For the Book and then I went to see the strip club scene/death of Judith for Women's Studies get filmed.  Seven hours for four minutes of film!

Also, it was being filmed in the basement of an Irish pub.  So I started drinking at two and am now thinking...I should continue.

Office just started downloading... Watching the behind the scenes ep of Survivorman now.  I took Friday off, mainly to yell at IPG and anyone else who doesn't hang up as soon as they hear my name, so I'll hit The Office in the morning.

Let me tell you, though... Women's Studies is going to fucking rock.  All day for just a few minutes of film and the whole thing was captivating.

Kind of depressing to see shit without special effects, though.  Now, when I see the final scene, I'll be like, meh.  Fake!  FAKE!  That's not blood, it's Karo syrup!  And it's all over my tuna sandwich!  Don't touch me naked lady!  You're covered in syrup!

Useless Body Parts
What do we need sinuses for, anyway?
By Jocelyn Selim
Photography by Max Aguilera-Hellweg
DISCOVER Vol. 25 No. 06 | June 2004 | Biology & Medicine
 
 
In the first chapter of The Descent of Man, Charles Darwin identified roughly a dozen anatomic traits that he gleefully described as “useless, or nearly useless, and consequently no longer subject to natural selection.” The list included body hair, wisdom teeth, and the coccyx—superfluous features that served as Exhibit A in his argument that humans did not descend from “demigods” but rather from a long line of fur-insulated, plant-chewing creatures that sported tails.
 
Darwin’s catalog of oddities was far from complete—our bodies are littered with parts we don’t need. Some are vanishing leftovers from our prehominid ancestors, such as muscles useful for walking on all fours or hanging from trees that appear in various atrophied forms. Others are by-products of a natural redundancy inherent in human sexual development, including nipples on men and the tiny vestigial sperm ducts lurking behind the ovaries of women. Then there are curiosities that, having outlived their apparent usefulness, linger simply because there’s no real reason to leave: What good or bad is hair on the little toe—or even the little toe itself?
 
Nearly a century and a quarter after Darwin’s death, science still can’t offer a full explanation for why one outdated anatomic trait lingers in the gene pool and another goes. Modern genomics research has revealed that our DNA carries broken genes for things that seem as though they might be useful, like odor receptors for a bloodhound’s sense of smell or enzymes that once enabled us to make our own vitamin C. In a few million years, humans may very well have shed a few more odd features. So look now before they’re gone.
         
                     
VOMERONASAL ORGAN
A tiny pit on each side of the septum is lined with nonfunctioning chemoreceptors. They may be all that remains of a once extensive pheromone-detecting ability.
EXTRINSIC EAR MUSCLES
This trio of muscles most likely made it possible for prehominids to move their ears independently of their heads, as rabbits and dogs do. We still have them, which is why most people can learn to wiggle their ears.
 
WISDOM TEETH
Early humans had to chew a lot of plants to get enough calories to survive, making another row of molars helpful. Only about 5 percent of the population has a healthy set of these third molars.
 
NECK RIB
A set of cervical ribs—possibly leftovers from the age of reptiles—still appear in less than 1 percent of the population. They often cause nerve and artery problems.                      
                                                                                                
 


       
       
      THIRD EYELID
      A common ancestor of birds and mammals may have had a membrane for protecting the eye and sweeping out debris. Humans retain only a tiny fold in the inner corner of the eye.

 
 
 
DARWIN’S POINT
A small folded point of skin toward the top of each ear is occasionally found in modern humans. It may be a remnant of a larger shape that helped focus distant sounds.
 
 
 
SUBCLAVIUS MUSCLE
This small muscle stretching under the shoulder from the first rib to the collarbone would be useful if humans still walked on all fours. Some people have one, some have none, and a few have two.
 
 
PALMARIS MUSCLE
This long, narrow muscle runs from the elbow to the wrist and is missing in 11 percent of modern humans. It may once have been important for hanging and climbing. Surgeons harvest it for reconstructive surgery.
 
 
 
MALE NIPPLES
Lactiferous ducts form well before testosterone causes sex differentiation in a fetus. Men have mammary tissue that can be stimulated to produce milk.
 
 
 
ERECTOR PILI
Bundles of smooth muscle fibers allow animals to puff up their fur for insulation or to intimidate others. Humans retain this ability (goose bumps are the indicator) but have obviously lost most of the fur.
 
 
 APPENDIX
This narrow, muscular tube attached to the large intestine served as a special area to digest cellulose when the human diet consisted more of plant matter than animal protein. It also produces some white blood cells. Annually, more than 300,000 Americans have an appendectomy.
 
 
 
BODY HAIR
Brows help keep sweat from the eyes, and male facial hair may play a role in sexual selection, but apparently most of the hair left on the human body serves no function.
 
 
 
PLANTARIS MUSCLE
Often mistaken for a nerve by freshman medical students, the muscle was useful to other primates for grasping with their feet. It has disappeared altogether in 9 percent of the population.
 
 
THIRTEENTH RIB
Our closest cousins, chimpanzees and gorillas, have an extra set of ribs. Most of us have 12, but 8 percent of adults have the extras.
 
 
 
MALE UTERUS
A remnant of an undeveloped female reproductive organ hangs  off the male prostate gland.
 
 
 
FIFTH TOE
Lesser apes use all their toes for grasping or clinging to branches. Humans need mainly the big toe for balance while walking upright.
 
 

       
      FEMALE VAS DEFERENS
      What might become sperm ducts in males become the epoophoron in females, a cluster of useless dead-end tubules near the ovaries.
       

 
 
PYRAMIDALIS MUSCLE

      More than 20 percent of us lack this tiny, triangular pouchlike muscle that attaches to the pubic bone. It may be a relic from pouched marsupials.
       
       
       
      COCCYX
      These fused vertebrae are all that’s left of the tail that most mammals still use for balance and communication. Our hominid ancestors lost the need for a tail before they began walking upright.

Well...sinuses are pretty useful, I would think.  Isn't it all part of how you keep balance?  And also protection against head trauma, etc...? Or have we declared sinuses useless?  I have a feeling you may know better than I since you dig up old bodies for a living.

Tigers purr, I believe.

Also I have a sinus infection right now, so I'm also pissed that they didn't explain why these fucking things are useless.  The only thing sinuses have ever done for me is clog my head.  I hate them.

But back to purring... I looked it up maybe 6 months ago because I was curious about what it was... the interesting thing is that scientists don't seem to be able to agree on what purring is, what it signifies or even how it's done. 
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...

Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: Nubbins on October 03, 2007, 02:18:38 PM
We have a mystery!

Quote
Above all, the purr is probably the cat's way of communicating to others (cats and humans) that it is in the mood to be sociable. The purring sound is frequently made at the same time that other 'sociable' signals are made, e.g. erect tail, slightly closed "contented" eyes. Naturally, in most situations, this will also be when the cat is feeling contented, but it need not necessarily be so. Humans usually interpret the purring of a domestic cat as an expression of some type of friendliness or contentment. This assumption is based on the observation that cats often (though not always) purr when being stroked by humans.

It is, however, not entirely clear to scientists whether this really is one of the cat's reasons for making the sound; it is well-established that a cat also purrs when it is uneasy, nervous or in great pain, perhaps to comfort itself or to express submission. Other theories suggest that a cat purrs when it wants, needs, or is receiving attention, whether it be affection or medical treatment. When cats purr while also lightly clawing the ground it may mean they are trying to relieve stress or comfort themselves.[citation needed]

An intriguing possibility postulated by Roy Feinson in The Secret Language of Names (The Overlook Press, 2004) suggests that the question is best answered by asking 'when do cats not purr?' He writes "...a clowder of wildcats relax under a tree engaging in gentle purring when one of the cats spots a rabbit. The cat abruptly stops purring and the sudden silence immediately puts the other cats on alert without any audible or motion signal that might have alerted the prey. Thus, maintaining a low-energy purr at times of well-being allows the absence of that sound to become a communication device."

The theory is strengthened by the fact that cats tend not to purr when alone.

Ethologist Paul Leyhousen, in his book Cat Behavior, interprets purring as a signal meaning "I am not a threat" to explain the otherwise differing circumstances that elicit the sound.

Post by: monkey! on October 03, 2007, 02:20:05 PM
I'm pretty sure sinuses are what let us breath through our nose, because the nose hairs filter out dirt and dust, whilst the highly vascular nasal lining warms cold air before it hits our lungs, because cold air hurts the bronchus.

As for purring, a vet told me once that it's a healing mechanism for cats, and they do it when happy and also when hurt. Something about the sternum vibrations and blood flow.

I want a way to link it to my TiVo.  That way I can queue up a bunch of cool Youtube shit for like a week or so, send it to my TiVo over that time and then one night when we can't find shit to watch on TV, we hit up our Youtube channel.  It would be fantastic.

Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: Nubbins on October 11, 2007, 05:58:27 PM
Absolutely!

I had the realization last night when we were trying to find a race on TV.  I realize that my home experience is probably considerably different from everyone else, so maybe this kind of thing would only apply to myself.  Anyway, Dave and I spend a lot of time watching Formula 1 and motorcycle racing on Speed TV.  We TiVo all the practice, qualifying and racing that we can.  The problem: Speed TV is so far up NASCAR's butt that it makes the channel nearly unwatchable.  Turn Speed TV on 10 times in a day and you will find NASCAR coverage 8 of those times and then the other 2 will be some custom chopper show or an auto auction.  Rarely, if ever, do you see awesome racing.

So I was lamenting that last night and then I got on Youtube and found hours and hours worth of shifter kart racing, boat racing, hydroplane racing, racing skateboards, snowmobiles, on-board footage from bicycles... fucking EVERYTHING you could want to find.  I spent a good hour and a half watching my very own Youtube show.  It's really great.

So I've been assigned 30 hours of work this weekend at my super boring second job.  15 on Saturday and 15 on Sunday.  I think Saturday's a wedding and Sunday's a bar mitzvah... Just thinking about it burns out my brain.  No internet access, walking three miles each way to get to the job, 15 hours of intense tedium...

Tony.  That was his name.  He lived with us the second half of my senior year because the guys who had him before us got tired of people showing up to their room all the time wanting to have a session with Tony.  They gave him to us because they couldn't get any work done anymore and just wanted the madness to stop... so we took him in.

Tony lived on after we left... for several years, in fact... each year getting passed on to other underclassmen until 2003 or 2004 when he either broke or got confiscated.

Those were the days, man.

The best Tony story was the time a bunch of us left to go see a movie in Columbus and our roommate Rick was left alone in the room.  Maybe an hour or two after we left, Rick wanted to smoke and the only thing in the room he could use was Tony.  The problem with Tony was that he was 4.5 feet tall.  With the carb 4 feet away from Tony's mouth, using Tony to smoke was a 2-man job.

When we returned from the movie, we found Rick, completely ripped of course, sitting in a room with Tony and an elaborate yard stick with an assortment of coat hanger pieces and a lighter taped to the end of it.  Rick had spent 45 minutes constructing a 4 foot lighter so that he could party with Tony.

It was pretty funny if you were a stoner, which I was, and you found bong antics to be entertaining, which I did.

So, I get my wisdom teeth pulled in the morning. I'll be under full anesthesia, which means I'll spend most of tomorrow soiling myself and reloading GS. Boy. I can't hardly wait!

I had all four done at once.  Two of them were doing the growing sideways thing... It was neat.  I vomited blood for a day, then I just sat on the couch at my grandparent's house and watched TV for three days while taking drugs.

Post by: Tatertots on November 18, 2007, 03:56:28 PM
Got them pulled yesterday morning. Big gaping holes in my mouth, and they've warned me only to eat liquid foods and not to exercise for a week. So yesterday I drank a protein shake, ate a gallon of applesauce, blah blah blah.

That shit got old so I dove straight into french fries, chicken, and cold pizza. And today I ate Cheerios and worked out for an hour. Still, no pain. With big holes in my mouth. I've got Vicodin, but I don't even need it because it just makes me loopy.

They told me I was supposed to be dead for a week, but.... ?
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: nacho on November 18, 2007, 04:16:08 PM
Yeah, no solid foods because they don't want shit getting into those holes while they heal.  But I broke the rules, too.  Just spend some time cleaning the wounds after you eat.

I still get stuff stuck in one of the holes.  They had to go into my jaw to get them, so I guess it's the dental version of scar tissue or whatever.

I guess I was dead for a week because they had to put me under and operate for the two ingrown ones...?  I don't know.  I've talked to people who were right as rain within 24 hours.

Post by: Tatertots on November 18, 2007, 05:46:36 PM
I was under, too. I only got two taken out, though, so maybe that's why I popped back up so fast. My gf says I was pretty funny when I woke up from anesthesia. The first thing I did when I woke up was get out of the chair and fall over. Then I tried to walk out and go to Carls Jr.

Of course, I don't remember much of that. I just remember finally making it home and playing Super Mario 64 for three hours flawlessly despite the fact that I couldn't walk straight.

No, I'm pretty sure it's masculine.  It's named after a person...

hey, what's the affect of cold weather on motorbikes?  At what point does it require equipment changes, like significantly expensive clothing or different tires? 
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: Nubbins on January 03, 2008, 10:58:43 PM
David tells me the cold doesn't hurt the one I have.  I was definitely worried about it, but it's got antifreeze in it and will be okay.

As far as riding in it is concerned, I had to start bundling up and wearing layers when it was below 60 or so.  The coldest weather I've ridden my bike in was 34 degrees and that was with glove liners, winter gloves, a neck gaiter to keep the wind off my neck and out of my helmet, 2 shirts, a sweatshirt, my coat, my riding jacket with both the rain layer and insulated layer installed, underwear, long underwear, a pair of pants and then an insulated pair of gore tex riding pants over those and heavy-duty leather windproof boots. 

Even when you're dedicated, riding gets unappealing below 40 or so because it takes like 5 or 10 minutes just to get dressed and ready to go.  That said, with enough clothes and motivation, it's probably possible to ride in any temperature. 

We had a race once in Wisconsin in March or April.  It was 25 degrees all weekend long, we worked inside of the trailer with a space heater and it snowed on race day.  :)  Good times.

It's weird... How I Met is a real love it/hate it show.  The main guy is a lame actor, the stories are formulaic and simple and some are just a bit too stupid... But Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan steal the entire show.  Harris plays a bitter, nasty, womanizer and Hannigan is sort of playing a cross between Willow and her American Pie character.  I can't get enough of them. 

Extras is fantastic.

So, anyway:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Harvey_Kellogg

Amazed to learn (thanks to the current season of QI, which anyone with a brain should be watching) that Kellogg basically invented cereal in an attempt to stop masturbation.  He felt that eating large quantities of cereals would crush the libido, and so forced corn flakes on mental patients.

But his anti-masturbation routine didn't stop there.

Quote from: Kellogg
A remedy for masturbation which is almost always successful in small boys is circumcision. The operation should be performed by a surgeon without administering an anesthetic, as the brief pain attending the operation will have a salutary effect upon the mind, especially if it be connected with the idea of punishment. In females, the author has found the application of pure carbolic acid [phenol] to the clitoris an excellent means of allaying the abnormal excitement.

Yep.

Quote from: Kellogg
neither the plague, nor war, nor small-pox, nor similar diseases, have produced results so disastrous to humanity as the pernicious habit of onanism.

Quote
Kellogg also advocated hydrotherapy and stressed the importance of keeping the colon clean through yogurt enemas

Also, rabbits were domesticated and kept in warrens for 600 years after they were introduced to Britain.  They didn't get into the wild until the 19th century...that being a simple mistake.

Quote from: cecil
A forebear of the hairy-palms-and-blindness school of moral instruction, Graham said excessive carnal exercise would cause indigestion, headache, feebleness of circulation, pulmonary consumption, spinal diseases, epilepsy, insanity, and early death of offspring, among other things. He thought men should remain virgins until age 30 and then should make love only once a month--not at all if they were sickly.

To control lust, Graham prescribed a special vegetarian diet, the centerpiece of which was "Graham bread," made from whole wheat flour. Graham crackers, which Graham invented in 1829, were another manifestation of the same idea.

Post by: nacho on January 13, 2008, 10:56:17 AM
Not much to explain.  Rabbits were domesticated by the Normans (for meat and fur), who brought them over when they invaded England.  (The Romans had originally introduced rabbits a thousand years earlier, but they died out.)  In the 1800's, some rabbits got loose -- same principle as alligators in the sewers and so forth.  By the 1950's, there were 100 million of them in the wild because they breed like, you know, rabbits.  Then myxomatosis hit and wiped them out, which might be what happened to the Romans' "flock" which was mysteriously absent come the time of the Normans. 

There's also evidence of an original wave of rabbits introduced to Britain that pre-dates the Romans, so whatever's up with myxomatosis, it seems to eventually bring the rabbit population to extinction.  It had a 99% kill rate in the 50's.  The rabbits on the continent have developed something of a natural resistance to myxomatosis. 

Rabbits as pests are well known.  Look at Australia.  They were finally forced to introduce myxomatosis to control the population.

Interesting factoid -- the prevalent rabbits in America (our little cotton tails) are immune to myxomatosis. To them, it's just a skin irritant.

After that, I will start strapping it to my motorcycle.  On Friday, we leave for NC and the Cornerspin dirtbike school... I should be able to get some cool footage there.  Beyond that, racing is coming up and I can't wait to get some on-board from David's bike at Daytona.

I think it should fit on Gabby just fine... she's the golden.  She's accustomed to wearing a service vest since she's technically a service dog... I should be able to strap the camera to her collar and load the mini DVR and battery pack into her vest, but we'll see.  I am eager to see if this is something I can get to work.

The possibilities of what I can strap this to are more limited than with the VholdR I had on preorder several months ago, but my guess is that the quality of video with this system will be superior to that of the VholdR.  Only time will tell.

The search for that suspect, Cpl. Cesar Armando Laurean, was "Earthwide," Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown said at a news conference Monday. He said the FBI is offering a $25,000 reward to anyone providing information leading to Laurean's capture.

Of course, the city is all retarded about the bike race and is kicking it out because they had to close roads for the race and they're afraid it'll hamper the economy.

Yes, easily imagined.  The Blitz was originally about crippling the RAF -- purely military targets.  Then industrial.  Then the RAF bombed Berlin and Hitler lost his cool -- to the tune of the deaths of 60,000 unprepared Londoners.  (The RAF attack on Berlin only resulted in 10 Civilian deaths.)

You ever see that UK series where they take a family of people and make them live in a retro-fitted house so they can experience what it was like to live in the 1800's or the 1920's, etc.?  I recall one episode where they took a family and put them in a London house and told them the year was 1942.  They had to black out all the windows and had rationed food... producers set up a replica grocery store where they had to purchase all their food, etc.  It was really interesting.

I seem to remember it being a whole series of shows, actually.  I think one was an 1800's house... the London blackout episode was the best one I saw though.

London was basically under attack for five years without a break.  After the allies fucked the Luftwaffe, Hitler started the V-1 and V-2 campaigns.

And Reggie -- not blacking out on the US (and Canadian) coast is what led to many hundreds of deaths in the Outer Banks, the St. Lawrence River, Newfoundland, and the Gulf.  Thanks to the lights of NOLA, u-boats were able to jam up the mouth of the Mississippi with torpedoed freighters.  And I love the one 1942 German newsreel -- the New York skyline from the deck of a u-boat.  Bright and gay, the newsreel taking note of all the ships outlined by the city lights...

We were a fat and rich target, if only the Germans had more naval power and distance didn't mean so much.

Well, interestingly, Hitler was all about the navy.  Correctly seeing the Royal Navy as a serious threat.  Except he was tied by the Treaty of Versailles.  He finally broke the rules for Navy buildup in 1938, which was a bit too late to build a surface fleet able to take on the Brits when it came time for war in September 1939. 

But then Germany saw such amazing results in the east and with France, and then Norway, and the U-boats took down several unsuspecting battleships, so Hitler got lazy and focused on building up fortress Europe and conducting the ill advised air battle with Britain (which is Goering's fault).

So reading about the Dakar rally, I stumbled across the contest I want to participate in:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plymouth-Banjul_Challenge

Quote
Participants starting in Europe normally must go to Tarifa in Southern Spain. Then the course runs through Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Senegal and finally into the Gambia. The entrants must be driving a car worth approximately £100.

Given such vehicles are ordinary road cars and are mostly at the end of their useful lifetimes mechanical reliability is the main obstacle to completing the course. For example, the 2006 rally included a 1983 BMW 732i which appeared to be incapable of making it out of England but in fact did complete the course; a Fiat Uno which performed fantastically and even pushed the previously mentioned BMW up a mountain; some Renault 19s and a VW Beetle.

...in 2006 two ambulances made it across....

Participants in the challenge are on their own, meaning that no assistance is rendered to motorists in case of a car breakdown or even if they become stranded.

hahaha... nice!  That sounds kind of like the Baja 1000 except with shitty cars.  I'd be down for that though.

I watched a streamed movie over Netflix this weekend about a demolition derby racer named Speedo that was hilarious.  Now I want to do a figure 8 demo derby.

Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: nacho on January 22, 2008, 04:27:05 PM
Seriously -- let's get involved in either that or a pace race like the Great Race.  The Great Race has gone global -- 35k kilometers, from New York to Paris.  That starts on May 30th.  You need funding for that, though.  109k if you don't have sponsors, 125k if you do. 
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: Nubbins on January 22, 2008, 04:34:45 PM
Wow, yeah... That second race sounds a little steep... 100+k?!?!  That's enough to fund your own Superbike team in the AMA for a season just about.

I would definitely consider doing a long desert race, though.  I would love to do the Baja 1000 someday, but I'd want to do quite a bit of research before committing to anything.

This race in Europe with the 100 pound cars... where would you get a car?  How long does the race take?  We'd have to figure out what kind of car we were going to go in quite a while beforehand because you'd need to stockpile manuals, tools, parts etc. for when the car breaks down, which it inevitably will. 
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: nacho on January 22, 2008, 04:56:50 PM
Great Race is very posh -- it's 45 year old (or older) cars only, and they have to be in good condition.  Used to be New York to Santa Barbara, using only backroads.  You won based on hitting certain navigational points (teams of two -- driver and navigator, using an archaic roadbook).  You could, on occasion, see the racers or the navigation markers driving around in PA or OH...if you knew what to look for.

But now they've become a global race... If that works for them this year, I imagine it'll be the new thing.

The Paris-Dakar Challenge is not at all formal.  You get your car anywhere.  There's a Craigslist equivalent in the UK where you can get shit cars...or just haul them off a junkyard, or buy some used POS somewhere in Eastern Europe... Whatever.  The cars must be left hand drive, though.

The Challenge now starts in Plymouth, UK and heads to Dakar.  I think that's about 8000 miles.  Average time is 22 days.  And, yes, needs lots of planning.  Might even be wise to go in 2011 or 2012.  Allow for building up time, money, supplies, info, and balls.

Post by: Nubbins on January 22, 2008, 06:09:18 PM
Yeah, I mean 1000 miles is much more realistic... still a hell of a challenge, but you can do it on a fairly modest budget depending on how high-end your vehicle is. 

Mouse McCoy did the Baja 1000 on a 450cc dirt bike... by himself.  Rode the ENTIRE FUCKING THING on his own, stopping every few hours for gas and repairs.  I believe since him, there have been a few people to do it by themselves, but he was the first.
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: nacho on January 22, 2008, 06:24:03 PM
Don't be a pussy!  If you're doing to do an insane endurance race...then really do one!  Baja's like a long weekend.

Here's this, though:

Post by: Nubbins on January 22, 2008, 06:42:27 PM
hahaha... dude, I rode cross-country 4 times in 2007, each time was roughly a 2000 mile trip.  Each trip was roughly 4 days of driving and we had all kinds of problems... blow-outs, overheating, etc.  And that was on the GOOD, solid, American highway system in a well-maintained RV; not a rocky dirt pathway through hell in a total jalopy.

Rent or download Dust to Glory (http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Dust_to_Glory/70027113?trkid=189530&strkid=1748396086_0_0) if you want to get a first-hand idea of what running the Baja 1000 is like.  This movie covers it all, from the big-money trucks piloted by NASCAR drivers to the vintage class where insane families all try to take modified 70's beaters across the desert.

Someday, I want to run a desert race of some kind.  I think the Baja 1000 would be an incredible accomplishment... just to say that you've done it would make the effort worthwhile.  But, there are literally thousands of races across the wilderness all over the world every year and I'm sure it's not that difficult to find a 100 or 200 mile race that people like you and I could participate in fairly easily using a dune buggy or motocross bike.
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: nacho on January 22, 2008, 06:58:42 PM
Okay -- I'll do the 100 or 200 one as a test run, but all with the goal that it'll be a fucking machine-gun freakout nine days lost in the desert horror show to Dakar or environs no later than 2014. 

I think doing a short, more humane version of a wilderness race is a good idea just to get the experience because, honestly, driving in Spain was really hard for me.
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: Nubbins on January 22, 2008, 09:35:23 PM
Hell yeah, man.  The other thing a 1-200 mile race would give you is a great opportunity to learn how to navigate through terrain.  If you're doing a 1000+ mile race, you've got to be able to figure out where you are.  Beyond that, being able to fix stuff that will inevitably break along the way is the second biggest challenge.  At least that's the way I imagine it.  If you can do those two things well, then the rest takes care of itself.

Sick Bed Chronicles:

So my grandfather's idea of comedy was to call on Tuesday morning and say:

"Welp...at 3am Sunday morning, your grandmother..."  Here he paused long enough to instill deep panic.  But he gets upset because, of course, I'm in bed with a 104 fever going, "Huh?"

Then it sinks in and I start blubbering, to which he laughs and continues, "...fell in the shower and broke her knee.  She's in the hospital.  Pretty screwed up, but she's doing okay."

He did this same thing to my uncle and my aunt.  My aunt dropped the phone and he had to call back, my uncle broke down in the middle of his office.

Har-har-har.

High on vicodin and doing weird shit.  She also suffers from chronic pain.

Apparently it is slightly more serious.  Infection set in.  So we've all been red flagged to go down to Parkersburg.  Except for me because, when the grandfather talked to me last night I was coughing constantly.  He said, "We don't want you here, Coughy!"

My damaged cousin, by the way, is refusing to go.  "I don't care.  Fuck you."  Was her response.

19:06:14 DSJ [Valentich]: Melbourne, this is Delta Sierra Juliet. Is there any known traffic below five thousand?

FS [Flight Services; Robey]: Delta Sierra Juliet, no known traffic.

DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet, I am, seems to be a large aircraft below five thousand.

19:06:44 FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, What type of aircraft is it?

DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet, I cannot affirm, it is four bright, and it seems to me like landing lights.

19:07 FS: Delta Sierra Juliet.

19:07:31 DSJ: Melbourne, this is Delta Sierra Juliet, the aircraft has just passed over me at least a thousand feet above.

FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, roger, and it is a large aircraft, confirmed?

DSJ: Er-unknown, due to the speed it's traveling, is there any air force aircraft in the vicinity?

FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, no known aircraft in the vicinity.

19:08:18 DSJ: Melbourne, it's approaching now from due east towards me.

FS: Delta Sierra Juliet.

19:08:41 DSJ: (open microphone for two seconds.)

19:08:48 DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet, it seems to me that he's playing some sort of game, he's flying over me two, three times at speeds I could not identify.

19:09 FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, roger, what is your actual level?

DSJ: My level is four and a half thousand, four five zero zero.

FS: Delta Sierra Juliet and you confirm you cannot identify the aircraft?

DSJ: Affirmative.

FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, roger, stand by.

19:09:27 DSJ: Melbourne, Delta Sierra Juliet, it's not an aircraft it is (open microphone for two seconds).

19:09:42 FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, can you describe the -ER- aircraft?

DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet, as it's flying past it's a long shape (open microphone for three seconds) cannot identify more than it has such speed (open microphone for three seconds). It's before me right now Melbourne.

19:10 FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, roger and how large would the - er - object be?

19:10:19 DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet, Melbourne, it seems like it's stationary[20]. What I'm doing right now is orbiting and the thing is just orbiting on top of me also. It's got a green light and sort of metallic like, it's all shiny on the outside.

FS: Delta Sierra Juliet

19:10:46 DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet (open microphone for three seconds) It's just vanished.

FS: Delta Sierra Juliet.

19:11 DSJ: Melbourne, would you know what kind of aircraft I've got? Is it a military aircraft?

FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, Confirm the - er ~ aircraft just vanished.

DSJ: Say again.

FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, is the aircraft still with you?

DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet; it's (open microphone for two seconds) now approaching from the south-west.

FS: Delta Sierra Juliet

1911:50 DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet, the engine is rough-idling. I've got it set at twenty three twenty-four and the thing is coughing.

FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, roger, what are your intentions?

DSJ: My intentions are - ah - to go to King Island - ah - Melbourne. That strange aircraft is hovering on top of me again (open microphone for two seconds). It is hovering and it's not an aircraft.

FS: Delta Sierra Juliet.

1912:28 DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet. Melbourne (open microphone for seventeen seconds).

Stein's column appeared a few weeks before The Day After aired. He wrote, in part:

...since my dear friends at ABC-TV have made a TV movie very rightly describing the terror of an atomic attack on America, perhaps they might consider something else. Perhaps they might make a TV movie about why the people of the United States face such a dreadful risk. They might make a movie about what life in the United States would be like if we lived under Soviet domination.

Here is the idea: Let's have a movie called "In Red America." It would be about a few days or weeks in the life of several American families after the Soviet Union had taken over America.

Stoddard acknowledged that Stein's remarks provided the inspiration for the series. Stein received a quit-claim fee from ABC for the idea for Amerika and was otherwise not involved in the production of the miniseries.

Oh, cool:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_III

Quote
November 9, 1979 – False "Soviet First Strike" Alarm: The US made emergency retaliation preparations after NORAD saw on-screen indications that a full-scale Soviet attack had been launched. No attempt was made to use the "red telephone" hotline to clarify the situation with the USSR and it was not until early-warning radar systems confirmed no such launch had taken place that NORAD realized that a computer system test had caused the display errors. A Senator inside the NORAD facility at the time described an atmosphere of absolute panic. A GAO investigation led to the construction of an off-site test facility, to prevent similar mistakes in the future. The 1983 film, WarGames, was inspired by an article detailing this and the following event.

And then we did it a few years later:

Quote
September 26, 1983 – False "US First Strike" Alarm: Soviet early warning systems showed that a US ICBM attack had been launched. Colonel Stanislav Petrov, in command of the monitoring facility, correctly interpreted the warnings as a computer error and did not notify his superiors, even though this was against standing orders and ultimately resulted in serious career consequences for Petrov.

Thank god for Petrov.

Quote
Petrov is now a pensioner, spending his retirement in relative poverty (US $200/month pension) in the town of Fryazino.[9] He has said he does not regard himself as a hero for what he did that day; nevertheless, on May 21, 2004, the San Francisco-based Association of World Citizens gave Colonel Petrov its World Citizen Award along with a trophy and US$1000 in recognition of the part he played in averting a catastrophe

Apparently they're making a movie about the guy as well...

Tyson, just because your in the cool kids club now doesn't mean you're one of the cool kids.

hey, how was FL?  Did I miss a description somewhere?

No you didn't. I was too sick and too busy to talk about it.

FL was awesome. We biked a bit shy of a hundred miles from Tavernier to Key West. It was eleven miles the first day. Fifteen the next two. On the fourth day we did twenty-four which included the seven mile bridge that James Cameron used in True Lies. The last day we did thirty miles, and my legs were ready to explode at the end of it.

I was in a cigar shop in Key west and I told the guy what we did, and he said, "Are you stupid? Seventy-five people a year die on that road."

I was drunk at that point, so I laughed.

Drank a lot of vodka and soda which may be one-upping the martini for a little while.

Went snorkeling on a coral reef. Awesome.

Came home just in time to keep the movie crew from imploding. Been working on it ever since.

I will, if you bump this thread sometime this weekend. I've got to get ready for Valentine's Day shit and then spend my weekend urinating on my professors' syllabi in the middle of the street.

Oh! Right. So Mardi Gras night, my freshman year. I was a loser and was sitting in my dorm room at 3am in my boxers studying and writing a paper. Then cops come banging on my door, screaming at me to open up. I thought it was a prank, and I opened the door, but there were two cops and the entire R.A. staff standing there. The cops started yelling at me, asking me, "WHERE'S THE POT? WHERE'D YOU HIDE THE WEED? WHY ARE YOU SMOKING? WHERE IS IT?" and shit. I denied it up and down and they just kept yelling at me, shining flashlights in my eyes (what the fuck?) They searched my room (tore that place the fuck up), yelled at me some more, and then left.

They charged me with possession of pot (what?) through the hosing system, which set me up for being kicked out. I had to fight it every single day for an entire month. That was hell. I mean, they didn't even find anything. Supposedly it was an anonymous tip that said there was a pot smell outside my room (which was literally two feet across the hall from the bathroom). This all in the dorm system famous for kids hot boxing their entire dorm room. And I get busted for studying late at night? What the fuck?

So, right. Fuck the campus police. What a waste of time, money, and perfectly good oxygen.

It was a shitty situation. I can't imagine how many other students have been fucked over. I should have left an anonymous tip that my R.A. was smoking weed and sharing it with people on the floor.

Cunts.

Here, we need both RAs, plus a member of our professional staff, plus Department of Public Safety (UI police) to verify marijuana smell, and then we can only search a room. And I've never heard of a marijuana bust going like that.

Post by: Matt on February 26, 2008, 12:35:28 AM
It's the preferred format for the video guy that does it, who's apparently pretty into it and on top of his game. What is sandblasting is the mini-committee of Orientation staff members (all new, mind you) who aired their grievances and thought the idea that the central staff, who have already greenlit most of the ideas (Man vs. Wild spoof) and themes, sucked. So they wanted to do their own ideas.

As head writer, I have to express to the theater and creative writing majors that they aren't as funny as they think, and that creative constraints spark true creativity instead of being vacuous, unfunny in-joking fatbags.

There's just one of them, I'm thinking of, but still.

American Cockroach Infestations

Introduction
Cockroaches have long been maligned as domestic pests, particularly in urban environments where warm human homes provide an ideal habitat for them. However, despite the dizzying size and diversity of the Blattodea order globally, only six cockroach species commonly invade human spaces in America. This paper will investigate the characteristics of these six species, identify the reasons why they are considered pests, and explore some of the ways they can be controlled or eliminated from human habitats.

Main  Body
Cockroaches, also known colloquially as roaches, consist of about 4,000 species spread among five families (Cryptocercidae, Blattidae, Blaberidae, Blattellidae, and Polyplagidae) in the order Blattodea. They are typically nocturnal and tend to scatter when disturbed, such as when a person turns on a light in a cockroach-infested room, avoiding confrontation. Although cockroaches can—and have—adapted to a wide array of environments including temperate forests, grasslands, deserts, mountains, and coastal areas, the large majority of cockroach species are found in tropical and subtropical areas. Their diversity has greatly contributed to their astounding longevity as a species—cockroaches have been found in fossils dating as far back as 300 million years ago.
Despite their diversity, only a small number of species of cockroaches make up the great majority of cockroaches that are considered pests. Two of the most common pest cockroach species in America are the American cockroach (Periplaneta americana) which originated, contrary to what its name might indicate, in North Africa and the German cockroach (Blattella germanica), originally from Asia. Other common pest cockroaches include the brown-banded cockroach and oriental cockroach. Both the American and German cockroach species often present themselves as pests due to their attraction towards warm, dark, moist places, which often means inside human buildings.
German cockroaches are the most common indoor cockroach and prefer food storage areas, kitchens, and bathrooms where it is warm (70–75 degrees fahrenheit) and close to food and water. They are also the fastest reproducing species of the common pest cockroaches, with a single female and her offspring able to produce about 30,000 new cockroaches in a year. In the absence of food, German cockroaches are known to become cannibalistic, eating the wings and legs of their brethren to survive. American cockroaches  are a more common problem in moist, humid areas that exceed 80 degrees fahrenheit in temperature and are the largest species of common cockroach. They are commonly found in sewers, basements, storm drains, and steam tunnels.
Cockroaches are considered pests in human habitats for a number of reasons. Visually, cockroaches can appear slimy due to their shiny exoskeletons and can be shocking to find due to their large size, which is unusual for scavenger insects. However, neither of those reasons are legitimate reasons to classify cockroaches as pests. The real reasons are far more consequential and have implications for human health and sanitation .
Cockroaches are scavengers and recyclers, eating any decaying matter they can, from dead plant matter to feces. Accordingly, they often track along with them many diseases from their contact with human waste (in sewer lines), animal waste, and rotting food (in trash containers). These diseases include food poisoning (caused by the bacteria Salmonella), staph infections (caused by Staphylococcus), strep throats (caused by Streptococcus) and hepatitis. Cockroaches can also carry with them parasitic worms. In urban areas, cockroaches track these diseases from food source to food source as they move from unsanitary locations (sewers) to clean locations (kitchens) in search of their next meal. Cockroaches are also a common source of allergens in buildings where they exist in large numbers and bring along with them unpleasant odors. Compounding the problem is the fact that cockroaches leave waste products of their own wherever they live, leaving behind cast skins, droppings, and dead bodies.
Controlling cockroach infestations can be a complex affair. Control methods must be directed at particular locations, making it important to know the specific species of cockroach being targeted because different species tend to inhabit different areas. General strategies in controlling cockroaches include reducing sources of food (storing food in insect-proof containers such as resealable plastic containers, vacuuming areas where crumbs can fall, and storing food waste in airtight trash containers), reducing sources of water (eliminating leaks and sources of moisture and condensation), and minimizing  hiding places (caulking and sealing cracks or applying boric acid powder insecticides to cockroach hiding places). Chemical control such as sprays and aerosol insecticides alone are largely ineffective in preventing the return of cockroach infestations because they doesn’t eliminate the reason why cockroaches invade human buildings in the first place: warmth, food, and water. Many cockroaches have become resistant to insecticides, rendering those methods of insect control ineffective. If chemical controls are combined with the effective elimination of cockroach attractors, however, they can be effective in reducing or eliminating cockroach populations inside human buildings. Less common forms of cockroach control can include other insects—some species of wasps attack the egg casings of other insects (such as cockroaches). However, cockroach infestations are generally preferred over wasp infestations.


Conclusion
Cockroaches live all over the world in a wide array off different environments and have existed for hundreds of millions of years—far longer than humans have. Although cockroaches are commonly viewed as a nuisance and a pest, the various species we find in our homes and buildings are only a small part of a much larger family of insects that are largely harmless to humans in nature. When in the human environment, however, the small number of cockroach species that are considered pests can present a problem to humans through the spread of disease and infection. These infestations can be controlled by removing sources of food and water that feed them when they enter our warm buildings.

No, knee replacements are NOT ACCEPTABLE.  WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?  WHY DOES EVERYONE PRETEND THEY'RE OK?  WHY WON'T A NORMAL GUY WITH NORMAL KNEES LOVE ME?  I WILL FIND HIM.

I'm going away next week, part or all of it with my sweetie.  Suggestions?  Currently we're open to basically anything in the US, tho I'm leaning toward east coast trains and/or road trip.  We're free starting late night Tue until 8am Monday.

I'm also taking suggestions for what to do without her for the rest of my vacation.  I'd like to get out of town on my own for at least a day and a half; my current default is Antietam or other battlefields.

Actually, I might be up for company (Nacho?  RC?) on my sans-girlfriend trip, if either of you have daytrip or overnight trips you'd like to do.

My only requirements are getting at least 1 hour away from the Baltimore and Washington beltways.

to savannah, GA takes 11h 8m and the cheapest rate is $86/person/direction, so probably $344 round trip for both of us.

I'm totally completely almost absolutely leaning toward the train.  I live next to metro and we both have small cars.  And I drive too much as it is; I'm not sure how relaxing it'd be for me.

NYC round trip 2 people total of $400 gets 3h 8m.  3h25m for $276 total if I leave at 3am.  Or I could spend $668 for 2h45m Acela, which includes business class.

Today, I gave myself a fantastic upper body workout. The whole gamut: arms, shoulders, back, chest and stomach. Afterwards, I treated myself to a James Bond style shower for at least 25 minutes, followed by a good scrub down. I dried myself off and rehydrated my skin with moisturizing creams.

For breakfast, a varied cheeseboard was had with a fine baguette and some fresh grapefruit juice, squeezed by my own hands.

Then I masturbated.

We're looking for casualties.

Troop strength is easy.  41,500 NATO, 8,000 US and matching from the UK.  Though we are "surging" in Afghanistan now, so that's probably topped 10,000 for us.

I meant casualties, sorry. Almost ever since the Iraq War started and I started to embrace how much of a goddamn "liberal" I was, I was curious that we kept a body count for Iraq but not for Afghanistan. I attributed it to us being far less successful in Afghanistan than Iraq.

we're all agreeing here -- there's much less oversight of afghanistan, which has also been seriously bungled.

Keep in mind it's the foreign press and the US liberals keeping body counts of Iraq.  Not some nebulous "we".

At work, everyone was against the invasion of Iraq but most were ambivalent, or even agreed with, invading Afghanistan.  Only the staunchest of nonviolent liberals were against the invasion.

I've encountered what bills itself as "common sense" that Afghanistan was bad (bombed Buddha!) and we could have "done it right" if we hadn't then spent all our time, money, etc. on Iraq.

End result is no one wants to think *too* critically at Afghanistan because its problems are ... because of Iraq?  There's a lot of fuzzy thinking.

Well... At least Afghanistan did have ties to al-Qaeda.  The embassy bombings were planned and launched from there, and the UN had been trying to pry them out of Afghanistan since 1998.  So we attacked after almost four years of sanctions and international political action.  9/11 was the excuse to go military.

And, then, yeah, we did the Crassus thing and started hoping around, which ended in a modern version of the same results.

I don't think we could have done it right, though.  The west has been trying to conquer Afghanistan unsuccessfully -- financially, politically, and militarily -- for 300 years. 

The Anglo-Afghan Wars are actually well recorded by Flashman!  Though, in reality, the sole survivor of the 20,000 British soldiers and families in Afghanistan at the close of the first Afghan War was a doctor, who pieced himself together and dragged himself several dozen miles to die after delivering his report.

Return to those glorious days of yesteryear with ~the~ definitive kiss-your-onager-goodbye nuclear cold war memoriabilia. Also an essential working tool if you decide to nuke that pesky neighbor down the street.

Mint CALCULATOR SET, RADIAC AND NUCLEAR YIELD: ABC-M28A1. Still sealed in original military storage package. NSN 6665-00-130-3616. Consists of a 4x4 inch green vinyl carrying case, a heavy plastic instruction sheet, and two fairly heavy plastic circular slide rule calculators.

The first three-wheel circular slide rule calculator ABC-M1A1 determines nuclear dose rate versus time of entry after burst. The reverse side has instructions...

So I'm awkwardly stalling because this isn't my usual thing, and then the owner of the apartment (some guy in a bright fucking yellow shirt, which annoyed me) came out and just started talking to us.

Liquor terrifies me because I don't know how to drink it.  I'm a beer drinker.  I can easily put away 10 beers in an evening and still be coherent, but this liquor stuff... jesus.  It just disappears inside me and before I know it it's the morning, I've drunk everything in the house and I have strange bruises on my legs.  I've seen it a thousand times.

1 Killed, 1 Hurt on Open-Top Bus After Hitting Heads on SE Bridge

By Clarence Williams and Martin Weil
Washington Post Staff Writers
Saturday, July 12, 2008; B01

One man was killed and another was critically injured last night when their heads struck a freeway overpass while on the upper deck of a bus headed to the Washington Nationals baseball game, D.C. police said.

The incident occurred about 8:45 p.m., as the open-topped double-decker bus, which was westbound on the Southeast Freeway, passed beneath the 11th Street overpass.

"They were standing in the upper part of the bus, and their heads struck the under part of the overpass," said Cmdr. Andy Solberg, field supervisor for the police.

Rescue workers performed CPR on one of the men, who was taken to George Washington University Hospital. The other man was taken to Washington Hospital Center.

Police said last night that one of the men had died, but it was not immediately clear which. The men were described as in their 20s. Neither was identified, and it was not known where they were from. The upper level of the bus has seats, and it was not clear how long the men had been standing.

"At some point . . . some of the young men on the top deck stood up," Solberg said.

Shuttle buses are provided from the parking area at RFK Stadium to the Nationals' new ballpark near the Anacostia River and South Capitol Street. But it was not clear last night whether the double-decker bus was part of the "Nats Express" shuttle service promoted on the team's Web site.

According to the account given by police, the bus the two men were on left RFK well after the start of last night's game against the Houston Astros, which was scheduled for 7:35 p.m. It was not known whether all were members of a single group.

It appeared to witnesses at the scene late last night that other passengers on the open-topped bus were severely shaken.

"This was a traumatic event for anyone who was up there," said police Capt. Jeff Herold, head of the crash investigation unit.

After the men were injured, other passengers apparently alerted the driver of the bus, who stopped at Ninth and I streets SE, near the Marine Barracks. Gunnery Sgt. Will Price, a public affairs representative at the barracks, said witnesses described a horrific scene. He said one of the bus passengers had administered first aid before Marines and rescue workers arrived.

"It's the most serious thing I've seen in my three years here," Price said.

At least one of the passengers was counseled by a Marine Corps chaplain. A man who lives near where the bus stopped said he saw people moving toward the vehicle in the aftermath of the crash.

"Marines jumped in to help," Scott Kratz said. Some of them brought a wheelbarrow filled with ice, he said.

Police continued to investigate the incident late last night and appeared to be measuring the heights and clearances involved as part of the inquiry. Some nearby streets were shut down.

The red bus the men were riding on is typically used for sightseeing. Generally, buses used in the Nats Express service are standard models, with all passengers in a closed cabin on a single level.

Parking near the new ballpark is limited, and shuttles have been used so cars can be left at RFK.

Especially considering that we're getting it anyway in everything.  Notice the mention of the ubiquitous "natural flavors," which we also read about in Fast Food Nation.

So even my Zazz seltzer has MSG in it.
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: fajwat on July 31, 2008, 01:29:12 PM
msg occurs naturally, but in smaller doses than what's put in food.

the stereotype of feeling hungry 1 hr after chinese is because of MSG but also because carbs (rice, noodle dishes) pass through your stomach so quickly.

i think people mostly grouse about msg because it gives some people headaches and fuzzy headedness.  anything is large doses can be bad but a lot of people happen to be sensitive to MSG -- reason enough to avoid it.

Actually a bit of an easy weekend.  I traded off to get a free Saturday, and Sunday's wedding was 10 hours.  So, you know, I get home a few hours before Monday morning's alarm goes off.

Weddings usually always end up being 10 hours, on average. 
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: saintangelsin on August 25, 2008, 01:25:55 PM
While a free Saturday is good, I think working on Sunday sounds like the pits. 10 hours of work and maybe three or four hours of sleep doesn't sound good at all. I hope you get a shit ton of sleep tonight to make up for it.

As for me, I feel slightly guilty because I slept a glorious ten hours last night. Granted, I didn't sleep hardly any while I was away and I did spend more than 24 hours total in the car, which totally kicked my ass. I just hope I can recover soon, because I have two incompletes to take care of (don't ask, it's a long story) and I have to pack to move back to College Park (which is happening on Sunday).

I'm a smart kid, but I'm also a slacker at times. Last semester was just bad.

I'm going to recreate the 2004 political freakout threads from the lost GS forums for Nubbins.


Yotoc:  Bush is my boy.  You know he'll win again, fuckers.

Starrwriter:  Here in beautiful Hawaii, we don't pay attention to American politics.  I love walking out to the beach and the bar.  Hey Jody, what are you wearing today?

Tyson: hay guyz I have a MAC!!!

Blue: Fucking ban Tyson!

Monkey: Penis juice cunt factory cunt cunt motherfucker!!!

Nacho:  I'm in so much pain right now.  Also, pay attention to me.

It had something to do with Tyson borrowing code from somewhere or something and then using it either on the forums or the front page... I dunno, I got cornered a couple of times over it with them wanting me to take sides or some shit and I was sooooo not interested and drunk.
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: nacho on August 26, 2008, 05:11:01 PM
It was the front page redo.  Where Tyson (unpaid, and as a favor) redid the front page and changed only a small amount of the code on the template, then rightfully took credit for putting in the work to update the page.  All because yotoc was trying to teach himself code and wasn't able to install even a fucking template! 

I think they felt like Tyson had showed them up or something.

To them, it was worth destroying a friendship, hounding everyone on the forums to take sides, and trying to destroy SFWP.
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: Tatertots on August 26, 2008, 05:13:43 PM
Borrowed code? Huh? I've always been a big bitch about taking code from other people (see the crazy library emails), so I'm pretty sure that's not it.

I seem to remember Nacho starting to ask me to help with web things and then Yotoc flipped a lid because I was stepping on his god-like toes or something. And I made fun of some of the things he did for SFWP. At the time, I had no idea what was going on.

Yeah, Yotoc felt like his technical cred and overall position in life was threatened by any criticism of any aspect of the site.  Helping, or offering help, implied heavy amounts of criticism for the way things were, and implied that he couldn't do the changes himself.  I saw that in Yotoc first hand before I even joined the forums.  At the time I couldn't login so I had no idea how bad the forums actually were.  Nor did I have any idea who Tyson was so there was no way I was tempted to take sides.

Except I can take sides against Yotoc.

They were unimaginably out of control, and I wonder how long they'd been that way.  Nacho's being nice in his description of how obsessed over Tyson and gs.org and sfwp and all that shit.  Not only was the website code angrily dysfunctional but from what I heard they fucked up SFWP publishing deadlines on a similar kind of ego trip.

Yeah, the SFWP sites were way fucked up.  It took the current webmasters weeks to untangle the shit.  Ultimately, we just dumped them and started fresh.

Of course, for a couple of weeks, the SFWP sites were "held hostage" (Blue and Yotoc's words) for the $2000 that I owed them (after having paid $2000 already).  Yotoc eventually emailed me the zip files for the sites, with a nasty email warning me not to tell Blue that he had done so.

Blue, then, destroyed everything SFWP -- including the original prints of Moody Food from Random House, which cost me a few grand.  Luckily, my layout girl had backed them up a month before.  Though it did delay Moody's launch by six months, and throw me into serious debt.  The money to pay for Moody was there from the contest, and an April release would have meant not sitting on increasing debt for a year (first payment on sales for a Sept. release usually comes in December).  So that was the beginning of my financial woes.

I often wonder if, had that contest money been intact, and had I been able to keep on the timeline with Moody, would I be in such dire straits today? 

So this is why I get so angry whenever Blue emails me.

My weekend was pretty good. My brother (the Marine) came and visited. We spent all day yesterday which was nice. I caught one amazing wave and rode it to shore, but about everything else was either a big fail or not as exciting as the one wave. But it was nice. There were dolphins playing around, too, which was amazing. I mean, surfing in 68 degree weather with dolphins and a light breeze? Amazing. Man, that was good shit.

We played Goldeneye on the Nintendo 64 for old time's sake and hit a bar for some beers that night.

I'm a little burned today. Mostly I'm exhausted and am considering taking off early, because I'm still not even awake.

Well for anyone who cares, I moved back yesterday to school. I'm here now in College Park. I'm getting a few of the classes that I wanted, but I can't have everything that I need. So it looks like I might get stuck taking 20 credits during my last semester. I tried to plan it otherwise, but the school of Journalism are being difficult on me and my classes for my last semester are only in the spring. Talk about ouch.

Post by: saintangelsin on September 03, 2008, 05:34:37 PM
I think the most I have ever taken was 17 hours. It was  nuts and I was surprised to find myself still sane. The good news is that if I can take my last lit class  during the winter, then I'll only have 15 credit hours for spring. If not, then it's 18. Still, that's a lot better than 21 with doing a senior project, an internship, feature writing and literary journalism and a few other things. All I can say is that I love my advisers.

Post by: Tatertots on September 03, 2008, 06:45:20 PM
16 was regular for me the past several years. In art, though, we have 6 hour labs that count only for 3 hours of credit because people are stupid. So some quarters, I had 20 hours of class + 15 hours tri training + 15 hours band practice and games + 10 to 15 hours work. Then there was homework and writing notes to Jesus on my thigh with a carving knife.

This year's a more reasonable 12 hours of class + 20 hours tri training + 15 hours work. God. Now I can breathe again. I'm going to kick some major relaxation time in. There's my senior project, too, but I'm not sure what I'm doing for that just yet.

Kind of -- I just don't have time to do it anymore. I was in that musical, though, and I'll be in basketball pep band in the Winter quarter. I didn't do marching band last year due to being busy. And I broke my finger early in pep band season, so that kind of spelled the end of my band career that year.

Good memories, though. I spent 13 years in band -- it's always been a big part of my life.

Homicide detectives were not called to investigate the shooting, and none of the injuries are life-threatening, police officials said. Police said none of the shooting victims were minors.

Officer Josh Aldiva said the incident took place about 4:30 a.m. in the 1200 block of North Capitol Street NE, near the intersection with M Street in the District's Shaw neighborhood.

No other details of the shooting were released, and none of the victims were identified.

The four men have been taken to hospitals, Aldiva said

Quote
DC’s home for Freaky-ass-movie lovers (Miami Horror, Sometimes Aunt Marth Does Dreadful Things, The Pack), is moving back to the District after stints at the Arlington Cinema ‘N’ Drafthouse and the now-deceased Dr. Dremo’s.

According to Carl Cephas, the Washington Psychotronic Film Society’s Board President (and the alter ego of The Incorrigible Dr. Schlock), the society will begin screening movies at The Meeting Place (1707 L St. NW) on Nov. 17, in order to regain the fans it lost when it moved to the Drafthouse. “Some of our hardcore fans made it out, but some folks said they couldn’t find the place or it was too far. So we’re moving back to DC to get back our audience.”

Cephas also hopes that returning the society to its stomping grounds will boost donations. “We make our money off of donations and now we are pretty much in the red…Ken Van Wey (treasurer) and Todd Yoder (”web guru”) have been holding down the fort with their own time and money. They both have families, yet they both find the time to help me run the WPFS. The bottom line is no one gets paid. It all goes back into paying for our mailbox, phone, door-prizes , and  our motion picture license. We do it all out of love of sharing films with others.”

Along with the prodigal move to new digs, the Society will return to its Tuesday night, 8 p.m. schedule. The first DC screening will be Dolemite (1975) on Nov. 18 @ 8 p.m. Until then, catch the following shows at the Arlington Cinema ‘N’ Drafthouse: “The Incredible Psychotronic Scopiotone Psychedelic Horror Show” tomorrow, Oct. 29, at 8:30 p.m.; King Kong VS Godzilla (1962) on Nov. 5 @ 8:30 p.m.; and Sextette (1978) on Nov. 12 @ 8:30 p.m. Keep up with WPFS news here.

Oh-ho!  We can tie it into my death count thread:  http://www.greatsociety.org/forums/index.php/topic,4015.0.html

Yeah, DC's not ready for this.  Especially in the winter.  If it's in the 70's, like it was last year, no problem.  A million people can sleep in the park.  But if it's full on winter that weekend... Things are going to be fucked.  I've heard from various sources that anywhere from one to two million folks will have no place to stay.  Part of the reason for opening all the bars 24 hours...but that's not really going to help.

Hotels are booked up as far out as 300 miles.

DC's decided to crack down on people, though.  There'll be some hefty taxes coming down on people who make a windfall from this.

Except the Democrats were basically a sure-shot to win. I mean, Elmo could have won the election against Regan's festering corpse. First black / first female President, either way, people want to be there.

You know, most of the rabid Democrats I know where all woe is I and Mayan death comet right up till the end.  I got all these emails at midnight on election night that were like "I never thought we'd make it!"  And, the next day, the hardcore folks at work were telling me how they were stunned that McCain didn't steal it.  On and on... And even from people I respected.

But, yes, for those of us with fucking brains, we should have bought up entire hotels as soon as Obama beat Hillary.  I don't think she would have gotten as much of a response since she catered to the elite.  Obama's the great Jesus Hussein Christ.  This supposed five million strong influx for Inauguration is All Obama All the Time.

(Which, by the way, will make it ironic when DC's blacks come out to murderdeathkill all of the Midwest white silver spoon liberals.)

So I figured I had become violently anti-religious and totally intolerant.  Even of the small things, like someone saying "have a blessed day" or "god bless you" while on the phone with idiot customers.

But then a nun said it today over the phone (she's also a shrink) and I didn't flinch.  Because...she's a nun!  I thanked her and was rather warmed inside.

I guess my beef is just with lay people who shout it out from the streetcorners and have god stuff all over the place.  I feel it should be private.  Not talked about, not openly displayed.  No conversion attempts or need to preach/defend.  You just go follow your god and don't bother me with it.  Unless, of course, you are a real preacher from a real religion, or a nun, or whatever.  Then you can talk god because, hell, that's your job.  No problem.
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: Reginald McGraw on January 29, 2009, 09:36:04 AM
So what do you do with the idea that:  "Well, my religion is correct.  I feel like my friends and family will spend eternity in anguish if I don't tell them about it."  ?
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: nacho on January 29, 2009, 09:43:18 AM
How does that person know that their religion is correct?  Beyond the imaginary or intangible?

I think that's a sign of delusion.  It's exactly the same as being a mad bombing Islamic extremist, and carries the same sin as they do, whether or not that person ever blows up a building.  It's all part of the larger sickness.

One should follow one's god for personal well-being.  If friends and family don't subscribe, then so be it.  It's a question of individual responsibility, and in the same arena as casting stones.  Let he who is without sin and so on.  That's not the message of that story, I know, but the principle applies.  Unless the person preaching is perfect -- or trained in seminary (or equivalent) -- then shut up.



Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: Reginald McGraw on January 29, 2009, 09:53:56 AM
Telling someone about your god, because you care about them, is not exactly the same as blowing people up who don't believe in your god.

I could see telling someone that the gays are going to hell as somewhat equivalent to blowing people up in the name of god.  Both come from a dark place of vengeance and misplaced justice and forget about love.

I can't buy the keep it to yourself theory.  Let me make another analogy.  Say you're in the street and a truck is coming and you ignore it.  Should I just stand there and watch you get hit?  I think at some point, I'm going to start shouting at you about the truck.  I may even come into the street and try to move you.  If you have information that is relevant to people that you care about, I think you're obligated to try to use it.  I don't know how to do this very well, but it is an idea that I believe in.
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...

But how is that even related?  Saving someone is just basic human nature.  (Well, hopefully.)  Religion is so varied.  How does a person have the right to declare their religion -- out of hundreds -- to be correct and then impose that on people?

I'm not really absolute about it, by the way.  Of course I understand the message, and the purpose behind spreading that message.  And the light stuff is really okay.  I say I'm annoyed by lay people saying "have a blessed day," and I am, but I also know that my intolerance is deeply seated in general personal malaise and self-loathing.  I won't do the black and white devil's advocate thing.  So, deep down, the only problem I have is people who actively preach.  The "you need to find MY god" sort of thing.  The fire and brimstone stuff.  I have nothing really against spreading good will and basic humanity, whether or not it's wrapped up in a religious package.  If a church promotes itself by, say, building houses, or feeding the homeless, or something like that...great!  But the close-talking obey someone else's god shit rattles my cage.

And people who use it as a crutch annoy me.  I suppose the newly converted are the most guilty of this, and the truly incurable lost souls.  You know -- where that's ALL they talk about. 

So dropping the Nacho for a bit.  I hate:

Door to door God salesmen
The newly converted lost souls who have no lives or hope
The streetcorner preachers
The people who judge you based on what you believe (or don't)

I am not bothered by:

Stable, non-violent religious groups
Religious activities that actually do further Humanity, believers or not
Constructive, intelligent religious belief
People who may wear their beliefs as a badge, but aren't judgmental and vindictive and are capable of maintaining healthy relationships with non-believers and other religions

It's related because...shouldn't saving someone's eternity be basic human nature too?  I mean, I know it can't be proved, but if a person has chosen a religion that declares itself correct, how can that person not act on it?  It's not dissimilar to someone who believes the sky is falling.  You may say that's moronic, but to that person...it's truth.  So they are acting on (their own) truth...it has nothing to do with rights.  Nothing gives them the right to declare their religion correct, but it's not really very relevant to my point, if they believe it to be correct.

I appreciate the end of what you wrote and mostly agree with it.

While I see Reggie's point, I'm not sure I agree that saving someone from being hit by a speeding truck is the same thing as trying to save their souls through the word of God.  

Saving someone from being run over makes no assumption about that person's own personal philosophies.  Saving someone from being flattened by a truck merely keeps them alive a bit longer.  What makes me resent people who would solicit God to me is the assumptions they are making about me when they do it.  They are assuming that I just don't understand or that I just haven't thought about it enough, when the reality is that my opinions of God and organized religion have been formed over years of serious thought and personal experience with the church.
Title: Re: Post, you knobs...
Post by: Reginald McGraw on January 29, 2009, 01:20:15 PM
Yes, but whether or not they're crazy...if their crazy is limited to that one aspect...you would expect them to operate with the best interest of people they care about, and tell everyone that the sky is falling.

Now, your response would probably be, "Okay, thanks, you're crazy."  And that's fine.  

I'm simply saying that if you DO believe someone is in danger (eternal or otherwise), and don't act on it in some way...I'd say you're being somewhat inhumane.  But maybe that is too far into the crazy...

And Nubbins...I would hope that those people would be willing to listen to you when you say that you have thought about the points that they're raising.  At the same time, I would say that it's probably hard for them to stop pushing, because they think you're making a horrible mistake.

Hey Monkey -- so if we're now in the Holocene Epoch, what's the next Epoch going to be?  Because Holocene just means "recent," right?  So, tens of thousands of years from now, are they going to have the Even-More-Holocene Epoch? 

Who decides that?  When do we know if a new Epoch or Era has begun?  They're still fighting over Neogene versus Quaternary for the Era's, right?  So right now we haven't really decided if we're in a new Era or not. 

And, then, how do we know what Phase we're in?  We're "Subatlantic" right now, whatever that means, but that's just been the last couple thousand years.  Why did that change so recently?  What happened 2500 years ago to change our phase?  Is it species die off?  Plant life...? And when do we go into a new phase?  And what's that phase going to be?  And why is your mom such a whore?

The Holocene is the agricultural age, when hunter-gatherers and semi-sedentary horticulturalist/seasonal movers settled down to one spot to farm and shit - so, really, until something major happens and we change the way of growing food....

Possibly Space age will be the next epoch/age, when mankind begin setting other worlds.

As for phases, that's a very palaeoecological worry, which isn't my speciality.

Not yet.

There hasn't yet been any real change to our way of living. Sure, we've some more fancy technology, but pretty much we eat what comes from farms which frees our time for specialist activities - i.e. jobs, research, science and partying.

Quote
In a scene right out of a Doctor Who script, a team of volunteers clearing a pond of rubbish uncovered a long-submerged Dalek.

The Telegraph reports that sales executive Marc Oakland was pushing a rake around the bed of the shallow pool when he found the object with its distinctive eye stalk.

The 42-year-old said: "I'd just shifted a tree branch with my foot when I noticed something dark and round slowly coming up to the surface.

"I got the shock of my life when a Dalek head bobbed up right in front of me.

"It must have been down there for some time because it was covered in mould and water weed, and had quite a bit of damage.

"One of the dome lights was smashed, but the eye-stalk was intact and the head and neck stayed in one piece as I carefully lifted it out."

Pond warden Tony Brown, 70, was leading the volunteer squad clearing dumped rubbish from the pond, near Beaulieu, Hants.

He said: "We made a very thorough search of the rest of the bottom of the pond and there were definitely no alien remnants lurking.

"We've all agreed it best to keep the pond's exact location under wraps.

"The last thing we want are sci-fi fans descending on the pond frantically seraching for other Dalek parts."

Mr Brown, who trained as a pond warden with Southern Water, has been helping clear out the area for the past eight years.

He said: "We've dredged up everything from shopping trolleys, toys, and bicycles.

"But this is the first time a Dalek's appeared. We have no idea how it ended up in there, or how long ago.

"We discovered the BBC often took the Daleks out on location for filming, and they travelled to Hampshire on at least one occasion in the 1980s, when Colin Baker played the Timelord.

"Who knows, this might be the remains of one of the originals from the old TV series. I'm told they they were built to last."

10mg Loratadine.  I'm convinced the dissolve in your mouth is the secret.  It's like an injection.

I usually take Claritin... have you ever used it?  I figured they were all the same thing.

Claritin makes an 8-hour and a 24-hour pill... I usually take a 24-hour in the morning then an 8-hour at night.  That keeps me sane most of the time, but if spring gets really bad here, which it does, then almost nothing seems to help.  A medium pollen count is 30-60 particles per cubic meter with a high pollen count being above 120.... last year, we had several days approaching almost 6000.  Talk about misery.

Typical Georgia springs look like this:

Though I prefer to listen to the mission audio, which is strangely fascinating.  If you're bored.

Does all of America look that horribly manufactured, even down to the grass?

Oh, it's a national obsession, Monkey.  Oddly enough, it's a vague attempt to ape Victorian England's gardens.  That's where the landscaping obsession really began for the US.

My favorite is manicured lawns and shrubbery in the middle of the desert.

Oh, California is amazing. Sprinklers on 24/7 in the summer and winter, landscapers every week mowing and trimming and digging and cutting, non-native plants that require constant attention, etc.

We've got native plants and grasses that require no maintenance, but somehow every housing development has decided that maintenance-free landscaping is Bad and Wrong.

All we do is mow that "grass".  It's really just a conglomeration of very short weeds.  I guess we do trim the bushes every once in a while.

In Northern Ireland, everything's dead because of the constant manufacture of homemade plastic explosives.

Craggy Island is the only place there worth living I guess.

Grass is great in Northern Ireland. And Rathlin Island is a real life version of craggy island, upon which I lived for a month. It was great.
