Regina Lyrics:
(To the lost Queen.)
Lyrics by Becca Stevens, Don Miggs & K Nita.

Carved a heart in a dogwood tree,
Found a song in everything.
Nothing to lose and nothing to gain,
Barefoot dancing in the pouring rain.
Oh, Regina won’t you come back home.

Done her daddy proud,
Made her mamma shine.
Found beauty in the night through a child’s eyes.
Lit up life like a firefly,
Never knowing that that fire could die.
Oh no, Regina won’t you come back home.

She lost her way along a wandering path,
She can’t get it back,
She can’t get it back.
It’s the wanderer who finds her soul,
And Lord only knows,
You had a long road.
Regina won’t you come back home.

She loved a man and he let her down, (Yeah she loved him, he gave nothing.)
She took an apron for a crown. (Lost her faith in real lovin’.)
She knew a girl who lived out loud, (She was somethin’, always laughin’.)
But she don’t ever come around no more.
Regina won’t you come back home. (What happened to you?)

Time flew by, and she let it go.
Used to laugh, but now she don’t.
Little girl dreams all turned to stone.
Spends all day on the telephone,
Sayin’ “no no no…”

Regina won’t you come back home.

Fabio is, either directly or derivatively, the cover inspiration for a large majority of romance novel covers. Mrs. Fish is a biiiiiiiiig fan of the genre, ask me how I know.

Probably not, but how many women buy a romance novel for its cover? Mrs. Fish, at least, turns the cover to read what the story is about, and flits through a few pages to see if it fans her flames before she buys it. I think he just does it for the easy money, and illustrators are happy to buy his image for relatively cheap.

MsJ  Mar 29, 2018 • 8:27:49pm

The only character I could see him being cover worthy would be as Jonathan from the Clan of the Cave Bear series (the first three books only, the rest sucked).

It’s completely not my genre. Of the roughly 7000 books I own, exactly zero are Harlequin bodice rippers. But I remember seeing his ubiquitous mug on like every single one (when I used to go to bookstores).

Go to a church, pick up a Bible and read this:

And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. - Bible : Genesis (19) : 33 - 36.

“If her hair catches fire, I’m leaving her to die.”
“This chick just totally photobombed my selfie.”
“Oh, you like these tights? You should, since they’re yours.”
“I’m really glad someone invented indoor wind, it’s doing WONDERS for my hair right now.”

Ayup. You’re not wrong. Now, we do have some more esoteric branches of literary erotica where his likeness is not prominently situated, but many of those don’t actually have the traditional bodice-ripper image. For the ones that do, though, his is the most common featured image. It’s a bit of a trivia fact amongst consumers of this oddball niche.

From last thread:
re: #89 Quoth the raven, Covfefe.

Yeah, this whole “behind-closed-doors” legislative bullshit is the exact opposite of how American democracy is supposed to work. How is it the will of the people if the elected representation is able to craft it, vote on it, and send it to the governor for signature without allowing a single member of the electorate to actually read it and review it?

It isn’t so much the blocking of the electorate out of the process (bad enough) that so many Republicans seem to make into standard legislative practice, but the exclusion of the Democratic minority: seemingly total in this KY case. OK, they’re the minority, so maybe their votes might not mean much: but apparently not even showing them the legislation??

One is even in our public library (a science fiction Romance about competing computer companies trying to develop sexbots, where the sexbot in one of the companies becomes sentient and seeks to control the world). I even signed it as the editor of the book. (Editors don’t get to do that much.)

There were many rumors of shenanigans happening between the stacks of my university library when I was a student. We had an open stack library and there were also study carrels for students lucky enough to snag one in the lottery. So, IOW, many opportunities for privacy late at night.

Not sure it would work very well in public libraries, though. Then again, I have not gone to public libraries looking for that kind of action, so I could be mistaken.

re: #83 wheat-dogg

There were many rumors of shenanigans happening between the stacks of my university library when I was a student. We had an open stack library and there were also study carrels for students lucky enough to snag one in the lottery. So, IOW, many opportunities for privacy late at night.

Not sure it would work very well in public libraries, though. Then again, I have not gone to public libraries looking for that kind of action, so I could be mistaken.

That wouldn’t work in our public library (the shelves comply with the ADA so are only four feet high). They are also solid, and the librarian’s desk is positioned in such a manner my wife can see down all the aisles.

That said, she says there were rumours at the libraries in the universities she attended as well.

There was an issue a couple years ago about a student who was streaming topless video from a university library who was suspended.

I wonder how much of said rumours are just that, and how much are real.

Ah, found the article on the student in question:

dailydot.com

This article contains sexually explicit material.

In January 2015, 19-year-old Kendra Sunderland became the most famous camgirl in the United States. A video of her stripping down and masturbating in the Oregon State University library went viral, earning the then-19-year-old the moniker “Oregon State Library Girl,” or “Library Girl” for short. The video garnered her an enormous fanbase among college-age males and blogs like BroBible, not to mention a public indecency citation with a hefty fine. But a few weeks prior to her infamous cam show, Sunderland hadn’t done any cam shows at all. In fact, she says, she didn’t even know what camming was.

FCC approves plan by SpaceX to launch more than four thousand satellites to provide Internet service.
dailydot.com

Currently, satellite internet uses satellites launched 22,000 miles into space—which is why the connections can be super slow. But Musk wants to install SpaceX satellites lower than 1,000 miles into space. If they’re lower, they will have less coverage, hence the need for more than 4,000 of them.

It will probably be a long time before SpaceX boots up the internet service, Mashable reports, and SpaceX has only launched two demo satellites so far. But the idea is to increase internet access, particularly in rural areas and developing countries. With coverage from space, internet service providers can build towers that beam signals from SpaceX satellites instead of installing pricey broadband cables.

Dear Democrats,
We are very excited to announce we have over 500 candidates on the ballot statewide! Democratic candidates are running at every level from NRD, to School Board to US Senate. You can see the growing list of Democratic candidates on our website.
The NDP started our Coordinated Campaign that is working to elect Democrats through Vote By Mail, voter registration, canvassing, and community outreach. The surge of Democrats running for office is incredible and we need your help to make sure we turn the energy we are seeing in the streets and on the ballot into more Democrats elected across the state.

The German state of lower Saxony of Lower Saxony owns a 20% share in Volkswagen and has veto power over any investor acquiring a controlling interest, other large German corporations are inextricable tied up with government as well, it is just how they do things.

Just like they officially have Separation of Church and state, but Catholic/Lutheran Christianity is the de facto state religion here, there is a (voluntary) church tax and religious education classes in public school (officially, the government simply offers its facilities for the churches to send instructors there).

In addition to Fayette, Clark County Public Schools also announced on Facebook that schools there would be closed Friday. The Facebook post did not give a specific reason. Jessamine County also called off school Friday “due to a shortage of substitutes to cover absences tomorrow.” By midnight, more districts, including Scott, Madison and Johnson counties, also had to call off school for Friday.

Among other closed districts were Boyle, Montgomery, Knott, Nicholas, Powell, Oldham, Simpson, Gallatin and Carroll. Others that closed within hours of the pension vote Friday but without public explanation included Floyd, Bath, Lewis, Magoffin, Marion, and Pike counties. Other closings lists noted Lawrence and Martin were closed.

Scott County Superintendent Kevin Hub said on Facebook: “Since the passage of SB 151, dozens of teachers have requested subs for tomorrow. We can currently only fill 54 of the nearly 150 that we need. That leaves too many classes not covered, which causes a situation that is unsafe and unproductive for students and staff.

snip

Senate President Robert Stivers, R-Manchester, said he did not know why teachers want to walk off a job.

The only provision in the new bill that affects current teachers, he said, was capping of sick days to prohibit them from using unused sick days accumulated after the bill goes into effect to improve their retirement benefits.

The 13 year old running for governor in Vermont:

Ethan Sonneborn says that if he were governor, he would sign gun-reform legislation that is expected to pass the Vermont Senate today after the past week’s debate and more than a month of wrangling with the details. But he would also back an assault weapons ban not included in the bill or any other being considered by the state’s lawmakers.

The eighth-grader, 13 years old, is running as a Democrat in the state’s August primary. He won’t be able to vote for himself, but if enough other Vermonters do, he could be Governor Sonneborn come January because the state has no minimum age for the top post.

As extremely unlikely as that outcome appears, so did some some of the provisions contained in a gun reform bill—S.55—that seems to be headed by day’s end to the current governor for his signature.
As it now stands, the bill already passed by the House would raise the age for gun purchases from 18 to 21 for buying any firearm, set bullet capacity limits on gun magazines, ban bump stocks that allow semi-automatic rifles to be fired more rapidly, and extend background checks to private sales of firearms.

Lol! You’re being a tad harsh, no? My tastes go in the Denzel Washington direction but I can see how a combination of long flowing locks and a buff, chiseled body could cause some women (and men) to salivate. Sad to see that like Kevin Sorbo, Fabio is a wing nut. Oh well.

Denzel is 1000x hotter than Fabio. Other than the fact that Fabio had a smoking bod (to look at, I don’t find that kind of physic attractive in a sexual way, personally), his face is completely Meh. And his hair down nothing for me. He’s too cartoonish all the way around.

Yep. TBH the GOP hasn’t had a nominee that grew up in America’s middle class since Bob Dole.

McCain may not have come from a middle class family but he was not born to wealth; he may have married into it but I would give a pass to someone who grew up in a military family and pursued that as a career. Whatever his flaws are — and they are many — he went to VietNam while Cadet Bone Spurs and many others were chicken hawks.

Senate President Robert Stivers, R-Manchester, said he did not know why teachers want to walk off a job.

The only provision in the new bill that affects current teachers, he said, was capping of sick days to prohibit them from using unused sick days accumulated after the bill goes into effect to improve their retirement benefits.
………………………………………….

Is there any reason to think that Stivers is telling the truth? He is a Republican after all. And a cap on sick time is not something that teachers take lightly. Also, the sneaky way he described how there weren’t other changes that affect “current” teachers. Many teachers may actually care what happens to their profession and to those who follow them. Too many politicians care about no one except themselves.

In Illinois, one of the major reasons that the “progressive” gubernatorial candidate Biss lost in the primary to the establishment billionaire candidate was that he had incurred the wrath of teachers state-wide.

Still trying to catch up with the thread, but I did notice something. Roseanne Barr is getting hammered.

I wonder if she expected this when bringing her show back. I wonder if her co-stars expected it?

It is going to be interesting to watch if it causes the show to go down or up in ratings and if it all affects the cast and how well they get along. And will she be forced into some kind of apology, fake or otherwise. And of course, sponsors on the show and how they react.

As I said last evening, I’ve never watched the show and I’ve never been a fan of her comedy, but she does cause a lot of controversy. This time it may be catching back up with her.

Also, it appears the Democratic/Left/Progressives side of things has really gotten to the “no shits to give” point and are no longer taking it and voicing their opposition.

I’ve got what I call the ‘3 second rule’ for incoming calls. Most robo-calls and telemarketer calls now aren’t even on the line when you pick up - they wait for a ‘hello,’ then it takes about three seconds to connect either to the robot or the pitch man.

The no-call list isn’t properly penalized if you break it. It’s basically a slap on the wrist for a robo-call shop.

I have a way of telling an unsolicited call here, it has to do with the spelling of my name, which contains a “ch”. In English, like “teacher” but in German it is a guttural like “Channukah.”

I also use the German convention of answering the phone and stating my name.
So if the then still they ask for my name using the latter pronunciation, I know they are reading my name from a list.

I then correct them and then ask “What can I do for you, then?” which tends to throw them off long enough for me to tell them that I am not interested in whatever they have to offer me.

And that’s why I don’t give someone automatic respect just for being in the military.

I’m 30 years old guys. I have never been shot at. I hope I never will be. I don’t know what I would do if an armed gunman were to enter my office and start firing. I like to think I would be brave but I think like the overwhelming majority of people in that situation, I’d be worried about survival. It’s easy to act like a tough guy when you weren’t at an event. It’s why people can insist that they would have stood up to the Nazis or Soviets because nothing is easier than the benefit of hindsight. We all like to think we’d do the right thing but what we should be focused on is preventing these situations in the first place. A high school kid shouldn’t have to worry about surviving an asshole shooting up his school.

re: #221 Quoth the raven, Covfefe.

The no-call list isn’t properly penalized if you break it. It’s basically a slap on the wrist for a robo-call shop. As far as number-spoofing, I basically started call screening when I was at my previous job, since the only people who had need to call me were people who were contacts in my phone; new contacts would give me their numbers ahead of time.

This.

I work in telecom, these are the most common scams/phishing going on lately:

1) Call spoofing / Local numbers - You’ll get a call from a local number that’s not in your contacts and answer it thinking it might be a friend or local business reaching out to you for some reason but no, it’s “Rachel from card services” again. Spammers have realized that no one bothers answering 800 numbers anymore so they try to fool people like this instead. The local numbers they spoof ARE legit local numbers. If you ever get a random call from someone saying “I just got a call from this number” and you didn’t call anyone, this is why.

2) Call spoofing / YOUR number - Basically the same scheme as above but instead of choosing a random number, they spoof YOUR number, the idea being you’ll be all like “WTF? Who is using my number” and answer the call. Fun fact: You can actually use call blocking apps and features to block your own number.

3) Call spoofing / Customer care - This one also happens via email but the phone call version is more insidious. They’ll leave you a voicemail claiming to be from your wireless company and stating your account will be suspended immediately unless you call a certain number and verify some information. They also spoof the customer care number of whatever carrier you have to make it seem more legit. It isn’t.

E-mail scams

1) Autopay payment - You’ll get an email from some company stating they processed an automatic payment on your behalf in the amount of a few hundred dollars and, if this is a mistake, hey no problem, just reply to this email and we’ll help you get it straightened out.

2) Personal type messages - These will take the form of things like “Why are you sending pictures of yourself to me?? PLEASE STOP!” Or. “I said it was over between us, what the hell is your problem??? STOP contacting me!”

You can probably guess that both messages are designed to make you instinctively want to respond. That’s the idea. A scammer has a list of emails and he wants to know which ones are actively used so he can spam the shit out of them. As always, use common sense. The autopay thing? Check your accounts. There won’t be any payment. The personal ones are a little trickier but most of us know who we’ve got drama with and probably wouldn’t normally respond to an email from those people anyway.

I HIGHLY recommend anyone with a smartphone to use a call blocking/call screening app. They will make your life a lot easier. Also, in most cases your carrier can NOT block cell phone numbers from their end like in the old landline days. You’ll have to use the apps and the native call blocking feature included in many smartphones today.

Bingo. And THAT’s the discussion we REALLY need to have. What exactly does ones “Right to bear arms” actually mean. Because you see, even if we put a limit on the number of assault weapons one could own, they could still own them along with other handguns and shotguns, etc. To me, that’s not infringing on anyones right to have them, only putting a limit on how MANY they can have.

You know another thing that’s cool about these youngsters. They are a cross section of America in 2018. Thy are White, Black, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, Gay, Lesbian…the whole shebang. And they are working together.

Together.

No one seems to be excluded as long as you want to join in their movement.

And I think that too scares a lot of conservatives because they cannot do that. They judge and exclude, they form clicks and gangs.

Yeah it’s an inclusive bunch of kids. I also like how they visited schools in D.C when they were in town for the march.

My sister got a weird one the other day. A young, male voice saying, “Hi Grandma, I need your help. I’m in (another state) and…”

As her only grandson is 14 and she knew he wasn’t in any other state, she simply said, yeah, ok, click. But it was sort of freaky.

A common one going to elders. They are looking to get some cash sent their way for bail, to fix a car, to pays some overdue bills, etc.

I’ve always wonder why scammers will take their time to get good at scams and put in all the effort to get some hits in comparisons to all the flops.

They obviously have time to spend, they work on their craft, they practice to be good at it. Why not just get a job?

Bathsheba DID NOT betray her husband.

David got a look at her, wanted her, so sent her military husband on a suicide mission. Then grabbed her at the funeral, raped her, and declared that because he’d had his dick in her that made her his wife now.

Other married women he had a hankering for, whose husbands weren’t in the military, he just straight up murdered them and then kidnapped the widows from the funerals and raped them too.

When we say he had ten wives, only two of them ever consented to being his wives.

To be perfectly frank, even if it was intended to be this way, it’s still fucking wrong.

I don’t especially care about the vision of the Founding Fathers in this instance. Nor do the gun cultists. If a memo from Jefferson were found today that said, ‘naturally, by ‘bear arms’ we mean carry muskets in a militia, not have every fucking white man running around with three heavy machine guns’, gun cultists wouldn’t just go, oh, I guess that’s pretty clear, we’ll accept some gun regulations. The gun cult is part and parcel of the American right wing cult, which is a philosophy based around hating other people. Keeping guns with the implicit idea of using them on other people they don’t like is key to that.

Indeed, my parents were totally confused when I explained to them that siblings could have a totally different genetic admixture. I think they got it when I pointed out that it’s akin to how we have different traits than our siblings. More and more of my close cousins have taken the Ancestry DNA rest. Two of them despite the fact we have the same grandparents have shown little Scandinavian even though both me and my Dad (their uncle) have sizable amounts) and like wise, Dad and I had very little so called Western European whereas tehy had sizable amounts.

Stephon Clark Was Shot 8 Times From Behind or the Side, Family-Ordered Autopsy Finds

Stephon Clark, the unarmed black man who was killed by the Sacramento police in his grandmother’s backyard, was shot eight times from behind or the side, according to a private autopsy commissioned by his family.

Mr. Clark, whose death has sparked protests throughout the city, was shot at more than 20 times by officers responding to a vandalism report in a Sacramento neighborhood last week.

At least eight of those bullets struck Mr. Clark — with none of them entering from the front, according to an analysis by Dr. Bennet Omalu, a private medical examiner his family’s lawyer hired to conduct an independent autopsy, which was released Friday.

According to Dr. Omalu, Mr. Clark was shot four times in the lower part of his back, twice in his neck, and once under an armpit. He was also shot in the leg. One of the neck wounds was from the side, the doctor found.

“These findings from the independent autopsy contradict the police narrative that we’ve been told,” Benjamin Crump, the family’s lawyer, said in a statement. “This independent autopsy affirms that Stephon was not a threat to police and was slain in another senseless police killing under increasingly questionable circumstances.”

Because of course. Anyone who expected less probably already blamed Clark for his own death.

Slow day on the work front today, so here’s a story (guitar-related, skip if not interested)…

Back in 2013, I bought this guitar from a friend’s family when my friend’s brother in Las Vegas passed away. It’s a 1961 Gretsch Chet Atkins model, a sort of precursor to the ‘Country Gentleman’ that became Chet’s signature model later on. When I bought it there were no electronics in it, just the body and other parts. I bought a set of Gretsch pickups and a wiring harness and got it back into playing shape.

Last night, I got a call from the woman who I bought it from, and she sounded kind of frantic. When I asked her what was wrong, she told me that the deceased’s son had come in from PA and asked where the guitar was - his father had promised him the guitar in the event of his passing, and she didn’t know what to do. She told him the guitar was gone and she said he was near tears when she said it. She asked me if she could buy it back so she could give it to the son as a surprise.

After a few minutes’ thought, I told her that I’d sell it back for what I paid her. I could only imagine how I’d feel if it was my dad’s guitar. She’s picking it up tomorrow. I’ll miss the guitar, but it should be with the son.

The inability, or unwillingness, of some to be able to handle information responsibly, though, is not a very strong argument from avoiding tackling difficult issues.

This presents us with a real challenge, as now considerable effort in medical research is going towards targeting solutions to some health problems by using genetics.

There are all sorts of medical research presentations that still use the word “race”, even though anthropologists point out that is a flawed approach.

The accurate term is “shared ancestral population”, but that is mouthful and hard to convey to the general audience.

The point of my post was to ride on Sullivan’s take. He’s is going to go on thinking what he wants to think just like all people that have their minds set on their own take and not try to tackle a difficult issue.

A racist/bigot is going to do what they do proof be damned.

She hates that man, that’s why she did it. Has to be! But whyyy?

They’re ex lovers, she was spurned and is out for revenge. She would have poisoned him but she feared prison.

I totally made that up but…
