I love so many things about this site including getting late night activity from Charles and the lizards!
I’m on Pacific Time right now so it’s not that late out here but still, I used to hear ‘Closing Time’ playing in the background so much earlier at other sites.

Full Disclosure: I stopped playing video games after I finished Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It wasn’t fun anymore. I’ve played more classic arcade games in 13 years than I have any console. I think I’ve played console video games maybe a half dozen times since 2004, a friends’ houses.

OK—I really am going to go to my bed now, but before I leave, let’s hear it for Bakari, who was taking no prisoners tonight (and looking mighty fine while doing it!):

“Let me help my colleagues to the right on me, I guess both on this panel and literally, attempt to unravel this pretzel,” Sellers replied. “This is something we’ve seen from this White House periodically. The White House lies, then the facts come out, then the White House tells you, ‘don’t worry about facts.’”

“What we know to be the truth is that this meeting was not about adoptions or Russian adoptions,” he continued. “We also know that the president dictated that statement. What do we deduce from that? That the president lied. He lied.

Sellers went on to note that Sekulow “gave up his credibility” when he told Tapper Trump did not sign off on the statement. “He lied, too,” Sellers said.

Seriously! HZD is fantastic on every level that counts, well thought out gameplay combined with excellent voice acting and a visually stunning environment that will melt your face on a hdr capable 4K TV. Also the game’s world building and take on post apocalyptic fiction is right up there with Adventure Time in terms of uniqueness and overall quality of engagement. It almost makes up for the rest of the bullshit this year has put us through so far.

Only big news here is the weather, which has really gone really extreme of late and begun to resemble monsoon season in the Southwest with its thunderstorms and intense downbursts inundating whole villages within a few minutes.

Hope it spares the metal heads out enjoying the Wacken open-air this weekend…

When they say “30% chance of rain” it means that it will rain somewhere, there is just a 30% chance that you yourself will get wet…

And the heat updraft generated by the ever-growing urban agglomeration tends to shunt the storms away to the outlying areas.

The Valley of the Sun is kind of fucked. A couple million people in that part of the world, where a lot of their water is pumped uphill from the Colorado River and urban heat islands make much of the Phoenix urban landscape completely uninhabitable. So it goes.

That’s why when they said we had a 0% chance of rain, I did laundry and hung it on the line this morning. Just before we left for Scottsbluff, we got a torrential downpour and hail in the zero percent chance thunderstorm that struck.

So much for dry laundry… .

we’ve had rain in the metro area pretty much everyday for the last two weeks…. but yeah, that caveat works, a 30% chance of rain means that 30% of the city will get rain, you just never know which 30%…

there’s even been some of the usual rescue missions from people getting in the way of flash flooding (per usual) but I won’t question the rain, anything that adds to the water table out here is a good thing imho…

and I can remember when there was space between Marana and Tucson and when you cme up I-10, you didn’t hit Phoenix until you got to Baseline and you were out of town once you passed Bell Rd.

Honestly the only way I see Phoenix surviving in 50 to 100 years is if it goes underground like Coober Pedy. My only question is if that’s even feasible given that I know nothing about the geology of the place. Also Coober Pedy only exists because digging there is profitable, so that’s probably a non-starter. At the very least all the homes are going to need to be cocooned in insulation, because there’s probably no way that air conditioning alone will be able to deal with what’s coming.

The ego trip.

I’m off to bed, y’all. At least the National Command Authority prevents Donald Trump from blowing me up with nukes whilst I sleep. (He has the authority to order launching nukes, but only the Defense Secretary has the authority to release them. If the DOD refuses, Trump can fire the Secretary, but the Deputy can also refuse. It is thought that when President Nixon descended into paranoia in his administration’s latter days, the DOD decided to refuse such an order.)

We can hope our Defense Secretary is sane.

One thing if you live in an apartment and are leasing it out when you are away. The main beef that communities have is that people are buying/leasing places for the sole purpose of re-letting them on Air BnB, thus removing housing from the market and driving up rents and prices.

Hamurabi was the first program we bought (in a dead-tree book) for our Apple ][ knockoff. Had to type it in several times until we got a Panasonic tape recorder working for mass storage.

The first game I got into was a university research simulation called River Valley. We took roles running a regional social/economic system. It ran in FORTRAN and took our inputs weekly on punch cards.

Greets and saluts from the Resistance in the NYC metro area.

Pence is off in Europe trying to reassure our NATO allies that the US will stand by them, all while Trump dithers and undermines our alliances. Trump’s also delaying on signing the sanctions bill because it might upset Trump’s boss Putin.

Meanwhile, Kelly is trying to impose some kind of order in the West Wing, and we’re getting all kinds of leaks about how Trump needs to be structured and focused, and that he’s now spouting stats in briefings.

So, what everyone is saying here is that Trump is a know-nothing reactionary incompetent who needed someone with discipline to try and control the chaos that Trump created in the WH and fill the vacuum with some kind of leadership. This is what the GOP chose; to bring chaos, lack of leadership, incompetence, and people devoted to destroying government.

Look, it’s not just Trump. Ryan and the rest of the GOP are intent on destroying government and the safety net just as surely as Trump intends. We see it through the cabinet picks, the budget choices Ryan and McConnell are making, and the consequences of those actions.

today’s thought question

over at electoral-vote.com Kelly’s Real Tests Are Ahead

clicks through to Axios, lists five things that really determine whether Kelly is up to the job.

1 Can he attract and keep high quality talent to work in the executive branch?
2 Can he engineer a big legislative win?
3 Can he protect Trump from Robert Mueller?
4 Can he handle a real crisis, such as one with Russia or North Korea?
5 Can he rein Trump in and get him to stop damaging himself?

up to the job is the wrong question
the real question is how much of this does or can he control?
1 - not up to him - up to the applicant market
2 - up to congress
3 - how exactly? nope - he’s got nothing to do with this
4 - great way to find out if he’s “up to the job”. working out great in the oval isnt it?
5 - ego vs ego - nope

Yes.

Assuming we’re still talking about the media, you’ve got a huge chunk of right wing hacks who have been seeded over the last couple of decades even at ostensibly liberal networks like MSNBC. Some of those are going to be true believers and therefore might just be fools. Pretty much everyone else has to be a combination of fool and knave. They have to know that Trump’s a complete not-so-slow motion train wreck, but for whatever reason they keep playing along as if this were normal. Playing along as if this was normal, regardless of why is unforgivably stupid.

Trump thinks everything comes down to making deals. It’s a very simplistic model which can only be applied to a very limited number of cases, such as negotiating a sales contract. Cutting deals with one’s geopolitical adversaries cannot work the same way. Real estate investors don’t typically declare war on you when they decide to cut a better deal.

How much is “Trump, Inc” actually worth? It’s not even a corporate entity. He did have a stock option at one time but that ended up like all his other failures.

No one really knows. Some estimates put Trump Organization’s liquid accounts at hundreds of millions of dollars, or perhaps less. But it’s got so many layers, with shell accounts and shit like that, that I bet even his tax lawyers don’t know for sure.

re: #250 The Vicious Babushka

OK: assuming the text VB has reproduced in #250 is real…..

A couple of interesting points on the Signing Statement:

1): agreed that this doc HAD to be written by someone else: it’s a magnitude too articulate to be Dim Donald’s personal “thoughts”.
1a): wonder who?

2): Most of its comments on the sanctions make it obvious that Trump is still leaning “pro-Russian”: I noticed he refers to “Tehran and Pyongyang” as “rogue regimes” - the Russian references seem to relate mostly to economic stuff, and mainly to “our European allies” and business dealings. It sounds like he is still miffed that we aren’t getting along better: (and also that we could/should nuke Tehran and Pyongyang and who’d care). Russian election meddling, I notice, gets short shrift…

3): actually, the grumping about Congress and “Presidential perogratives” is about the most “normal” bit of the SS - I can see many/most other Presidents adding the same gripe….

4): if that final sentence is real, its the most “Trumpian” part of the whole doc: I wonder why they left it in….?

If shit starts hitting the fan with damaging stories about congressional Republicans, then all bets are off. And the only thing that will save Trump is groveling like a motherfucker to Putin.

I’m liking your scenario.

But, I bet if there is any repercussions against Trump it will have something to do with money…those Russian bank/mob loans. Who knows, they may call them in and Trump is forced to start finding ways to pay them off. Or, the real heaviness starts and Trump family members and associates start to go into hiding because they are…uh let’s say…wanted.

Or a ‘package’ could arrive at Bob Mueller’s office…

These scenarios are not without very bad consequences, though. Most of Trump’s cult members are dancing on a knife edge now, trying to defend the incriminating information flying at them every day.

Dropping kompromat on Trump would be bad enough. But imagine the release of info that would send the entire Trump clan to prison coupled with the mother of all fake news campaigns. Then all of Congress, the media and just about anyone who criticizes Trump would be in real danger.

When the lid finally gets ripped off this bucket of corruption, a lot of people are going to get slimed. And Trump’s hard core is going to want to avenge the God Emperor.

Charging station network launches to allow electric-car travel on Utah freeways

Recharging takes 20-30 minutes, costs $12 to $20 — but it’s cheaper than a tank of gasoline.

Much like gasoline stations now dot Utah’s highways, the state took a first step Monday toward creating a system of quick recharging stations for electric vehicles — to allow them to make long-distance trips conveniently.

As part of that, Maverik may no longer be called just a gas station chain. It also started selling electricity at quick-charge stations at two key points — in Fillmore and Washington City near St. George — to help electric cars travel Interstate 15.

Charging station network launches to allow electric-car travel on Utah freeways

Recharging takes 20-30 minutes, costs $12 to $20 — but it’s cheaper than a tank of gasoline.

Much like gasoline stations now dot Utah’s highways, the state took a first step Monday toward creating a system of quick recharging stations for electric vehicles — to allow them to make long-distance trips conveniently.

As part of that, Maverik may no longer be called just a gas station chain. It also started selling electricity at quick-charge stations at two key points — in Fillmore and Washington City near St. George — to help electric cars travel Interstate 15.

I really believe that all municipal vehicle fleets should switch over to electric: these are cars that drive limited distances within a city and can be easily recharged. That would help with economies of scale and density.

Not to mention reducing fuel costs for the city/town.

The real problem will be convincing a lot of Red State municipalities to go along with this obvious deep-state takeover conspiracy…

re: #331 The Vicious Babushka

Didn’t he put up those buildings as collateral to take out loans? Most of the buildings around the world with his name on them don’t even belong to him. He rented out the use of his “famous, beautiful” name.

No, all the new businesses he tried and failed with (football team, airline, casinos, the Plaza redevelopment, etc) were each a separate corporate entity. He took huge “management fees” and “consulting fees” from each before they collapsed, the lenders all took losses, but his previously owned properties were safe from foreclosure.

another call that was never made

Said Trump earlier this week: “As you know, the border was a tremendous problem and they’re close to 80 percent stoppage. And even the president of Mexico called me — they said their southern border, very few people are coming because they know they’re not going to get through our border, which is the ultimate compliment.”

Pena Nieto denies that ever happened.

re: #242 Decatur Deb

Kentuckians have an expression that’s said when food gets a little contaminated: “You’ve got to eat a bushel of dirt before you die”. I never figured out if they meant it takes a bushel of dirt to kill you, or that eating a lot of dirt is inevitable over time.

I think they meant it is in the fine print. Always read a contract before you sign it.

Woo! I’ve been scrolling down this thread waiting for somebody to mention System Shock 2. Best game ever. Here’s my list:

System Shock 2
Half-Life 2
TIE Fighter
No One Lives Forever 2
Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Huh. Guess I dig sequels :)

Can’t believe it took this long to get a shout-out to HL2 - my personal favorite.

I’ve basically given 3D video games - I get nauseous immediately and feel sick the rest of the day. SAD!
