Study finds gin and tonic drinkers are more likely to be psychopaths, sadists

I enjoy gin & tonic, black coffee and dark chocolate

But, I wonder if using only Austrian’s in the study may have a bit of bearing on it’s results

Full disclosure: I have ridden on a bus through Austria numerous times, and I’ve enjoyed a tasty gin & tonic at an airport in Austria

Naked Capitalism: Erica Gardner

While we know that Erica Garner is not dead, it is almost certain that her voice is lost. That is not just a tragedy but a disgrace. An activist who sometimes found it hard to come up with Metrocard fare so she could participate in protests was almost certainly short-changed by our money-driven medical system. It may be that “I can’t breathe” will come to be not just a reminder of how police brutalize African Americans, but how they are also mistreated by the health care system.

It appears as if Columbus is about to get our first decent snowfall for the year. Just looked at the weather maps, pretty good slow-moving band of snow heading this way outta Indiana back through Illinois and up into Iowa. That will last a bit of time. Sleuth might be in line for this one too. Looks like some might be hitting her now.

A Cranky One  Dec 29, 2017 • 2:07:41pm

So over 30 years ago, my brother, who’s a fantastic artist, created stipple portraits of my first two kids (from baby photos). Stipple is a technique that uses only dots (no lines).

In a drawing or painting, the dots are made of pigment of a single colour, applied with a pen or brush; the denser the dots, the darker the apparent shade—or lighter, if the pigment is lighter than the surface. This is similar to—but distinct from—pointillism, which uses dots of different colours to simulate blended colours.[1]Wikipedia

My older daughter mentioned to my brother that her younger sister was sad that she never got a portrait. So, despite working insane hours and fighting some health issues, my brother created a portrait for my youngest.

These are true works of art and match the actual photos exactly. Amazing work. The new portrait is below (with his signature removed for privacy). Can’t tell you how thrilled I am that my youngest daughter finally got her own portrait (and how thrilled I am to have a complete set of my kids). Best Christmas present I received.

Zoom in. It’s all dots, done by hand. Over a hundred hours of work.

My husband, an Iranian American, says don’t get to excited about the unrest in Iran. He said it’s not a generic uprising like before.

According to Iranian sites starting two weeks ago, the Iranian ambassador to the US under the Shah, his brother-in-law, was in Saudi. Most feel that their money is financing this.

Next month if it still going on it will really mean something, if it last, because that will be the anniversary of the Revolution. Saudi may have started it, but they won’t benefit from it, but neither will the Shah’s son. Too much bad blood.

Thanks folks! My brother’s primary interests are sculpture and photography these days, but his drawings and paintings are astounding. I bugged him to do a portrait of my youngest for years, but he demurred because of the effort required. So I’m thrilled that he finally did this one.

Since I mentioned his sculptures, here’s an amusing note: Between shows, he keeps his sculptures stacked around his house. Many are incredibly lifelike human sculptures, so much so that he invited the police over to view them, being concerned about what his neighbors would say seeing them being carried in and out on the way to shows. Also, they can’t get a pet sitter or repair folks to come to the house after one visit (they get very creeped out by the piles of “bodies” laying around). When his sculptures are displayed, people insist on touching them, sure that they are real people.

A group of Mormon cult leaders is being charged with organizing sexual religious rituals with underage girls and threatening them with damnation if they did not participate, according to court documents filed in Salt Lake City, Utah on Wednesday.

Defendants Warren Jeffs, Lyle Jeffs, Seth Jeffs, and Wendell Leroy Nielsen are members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS), an offshoot of the Mormon Church that still practices polygamy over a hundred years after the mainstream Mormon Church abandoned it. The Southern Poverty Law Center has described the group as a white supremacist, antigovernment, totalitarian cult.

Trump was enthusiastic about the interview and liked that the New York Times was at his golf course, people briefed on the interview said. The president, they added, enjoyed the coverage afterward and noted that it dominated TV most of Friday.

washingtonpost.com

(Gotta say, I’m a bit disappointed that this WaPo article actually includes a bit about them reaching out to Howie fucking Carr to get a quote from the yam at maragaudy—and such a quote—“Tell them I am relaxing and enjoying myself and I’m in very good spirits because I’ve just had the most successful first year any president has ever had in American history,” Carr said the president told him.

What gives you the impression he has a hearing problem?

I don’t think we’ll get the results if he actually does do an exam.

re: #187 Cheechako

A quick drive-bye. This has been a shitty week…both metaphorically and physically.

Last Friday, to celebrate my special birthday, my wife and I went to the 4 PM matinée showing of Star Wars. Little did we know that same Friday was the first day of the school’s Christmas break. The theater was filled with a couple of hundred kids most of whom were sniffling, wheezing, snorting, hacking, spitting, etc. You get the drift. So, Christmas eve my wife comes down with the crude and Christmas day I came down with a duplicate copy.

And we’ve been suffering all week.

That’s enough complaining. Please return to your regular programming as I go back to bed.

Here too
Industrial strength

In a day or two I’ll have a post about whining (mine)

Hell, imagine if Obama had declared to the NYT that the media was going to help him win in 2012 because it was in their financial interest (I.e. “ratings”) to see that he was reelected.

Every time trump opens his mouth - it can be said “Imagine if Obama said that” - the GOP screams would reverberate around the world - he couldn’t even comfort a Mom who lost her child, not a man who was arrested walking into his own house without a massive outcry.

When he finally does get his physical, I expect to get little to nothing out of it for “reasons of national security” or some such bullshit. And the media dutifully jumping out to argue that we have no need to see his full medical chart because the doctors gave him a “clean bill of health” or such.

re: #199 Hecuba’s daughter

Some of it may also be a decline in hearing. But we won’t know until he gets the physical from a real doctor.

An intelligent person even with bad hearing wouldn’t say the nutso stuff he does

(Yes, I tried to get the bank to stop the withdrawal, but they tell me I would have to cancel my current debit card and get a new one. That opens up all sorts of grief, but if I have to, I will. GAH!!!!)

So much easier to stop a payment if you use a credit card. Wherever and whenever possible I subscribe with a credit card. … and now you have me wondering. I took out a NYT sub because they offered 12 months at $12 per month - I fully intend to cancel when that is over - and near impossible to cancel by phone when you live outside of the US - going to check out my options now!

re: #200 stpaulbear

We had a couple inches of snow over the last two days and I figured I’d better get it shoveled while it’s still warm here. It’s was a balmy +5 when I started. I managed to work up a bit of a sweat. It’s not supposed to be above 0 again until Tuesday. The car is in the unheated garage and I’m not going anywhere this weekend. The garage usually stays about 10 degrees warmer that outside (some solar gain) so the car should be OK.

You plug your car in huh?
Yup
It’s one of those electrics?
Nope
Wait..what?

But I don’t think the doc would out right lie. He wouldn’t “Clean bill of health” if they found something and trump (it has to be trump) didn’t give permission to disclose

That was a better one than I saw on one of the other newscasts. Damn, we lost a few good ones.

io9 had a list that duplicated some of those, but their list was a little more geek-oriented, along with fictional characters who died and TV shows and comics that got cancelled.

Not me. Truck has refused to start all week. Had someone over today to jump it off his truck and still no joy. I really don’t know what the problem is. Gas? Yep. Even added a gallon to help & some heet as well. Cranks but just won’t quite fire. I’m wondering about my spark plugs &/or spark plug cables but that’s mechanic level money that I won’t have anytime soon.

Or, if the investigations have gotten even more heated by then… he could resign (blood pressure, ulcers, TIE’s). And for the rest of forever we’ll be hearing how he was hounded out office by the stress-inducing witch hunt,

The Older Boy did the opposite of malingering today.

He’s still recovering from whatever hit me on Christmas Eve, and hit him on Boxing Day, and even though he gets paid sick days, he still went to work today, even though neither of us encouraged him to do so.

It’s almost like he’s diligent or something.
