The best advice to SC, NC, and VA residents along the coast is to get to higher ground to avoid storm surge. But even that wont be enough as the storm is expected to drop 20-30 inches in areas across the Southeast because the storm is expected to stall out.

That’s real bad.

But not nearly as bad as thinking prayer will keep you alive in those circumstances.

So, looks like several QAnon subreddits got the banhammer about an hour or so ago. Six of them got banned from Reddit; maybe the Reddit admins are (belatedly) trying to make the place a wee bit less of a sewer.

Looks the Qultists are just gonna have to content themselves with 4Chan and 8Chan.

I know a variant about the fellow who has been praying to God for years to help him win the lottery.

Finally God relents and says, “But there is one thing you have to do for me, then!”

“What is that, Lord?” the man replies.

“Get up off your knees and go buy a damn lottery ticket!”

I once heard a discussion of probability which pointed out that the odds of winning the lottery is so astronomically small that you only marginally increase them by actually buying a ticket.

From wikipedia, on his various internet ventures…

In 2015, Johnson created a crowd-funding website called WeSearchr. By 2017, the site has become a fundraising platform for alt-right causes, though Johnson says that was not his intention. Neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin, founder of The Daily Stormer, used the website to raise money to defend himself against a lawsuit brought by the ACLU on behalf of a woman trolled by followers of Anglin.[41] In addition to corwdfunding legal battles, the site was also designed to crowd-fund bounties on reporting goals. According to Johnson, he used the site to receive money for information he had already acquired.[42] Since May 2017, the site has been down following a failure to pay for hosting fees.[42][43][44]

Johnson also started the crowdfunding site Freestartr, which collected funds for white nationalist Richard B. Spencer,[45] far-right activist Tommy Robinson,[46] white nationalist Faith Goldy,[47] Johnson himself,[48] and others. In mid-2018, Freestartr stopped accepting funds, as the site was banned by Stripe and Paypal, which Freestartr used to process payments.[49][47]

I thought, Mr. Dorsey, that we had an understanding. I would not ever concede that telling you or anyone else they ought to die of boils was unjustifiable after their own rhetoric lapsed into abject slander, dishonesty or dishonor, and you — pretending that I had somehow threatened the actual well-being of another human, or that my word were measurably more cruel than telling someone to, say, take a long walk off a short pier or grow like an onion with his head in the ground — would continue to bar me from the demagogue-encrusted, Nazi-profiteering national agora that you call a social-media platform.

I was more than content with this bargain.

For one thing, leaving intact on Twitter my threaded suggestion that boils are your deserved fate for your civic performance in this moment would make clean and clear why I left months ago. No one had actually been threatened or harassed, and the rhetoric itself was purposed as a precise critique of your incompetent attempts at algorithmic censorship, which routinely ban people for the most casual sarcasm while leaving intact organized slander and disinformation. This seemed to me fair payment for my exile. For another, I was able to use the time I had previously spent on Twitter jabbering with Russian bots and assorted meme-spewing deplorati to much greater accomplishment, such as deworming my neighbor’s dog and rearranging the books on my shelves by color.

This

The correct 1935 reply to Streicher or Goebbels asserting that Jews secretly drink the blood of baptized Christian babies was not, “We have looked into this claim and found that there is no evidence to support the lie that Jews drink Christian baby blood.” For fuck sake, Jack, don’t you understand? Whether such a refutation comes on Twitter or from a mainstream news organization, it succeeds only in granting rhetorical equanimity and status to any and every vile assertion that evil sees fit to utter.

Nor is the correct response to simply ignore such filth when it arrives on one’s digital doorstep. To do so simply allows it to stand public view tacitly as plausible opinion in the marketplace of ideas. Silence is also 1935, Jack.

1. The correct response to racism, to white supremacy, to anti-Semitism, to slander and libel is to:

2. Tell the fucker he’s a piece of shit and should die of throat clap.
Block him. And in doing 1. and 2. you have marked the spot for the rest of the sane and sentient on Twitter, much as any good infantryman who wanders into a minefield marks the Claymores for the rest of the platoon. It’s just good soldiering, Jack.

Over at the waitress station we noticed a star was drawn after every pitcher we got on a piece of duct tape……
We were cut off. Too expensive. 8 fucking hours a night playing to bolo knife cane wielding jar heads on leave…..we could tell how old the fight in the parking lot was by the wetness of the blood.

RationalWiki sure has a bone to pick with LGF though.

rationalwiki.org

It would appear someone over there hasn’t actually read LGF. A post to the article says it’s a stub and need help with expansion.

Little Green Footballs (LGF) is a website that went from vehement, racist, hate-speech right-wing warblog in 2001 to vehement anti-right-wing blog in 2009 while retaining the same tactics of ridicule, personal rivalries, banning of dissenters, and calling opponents “evil.” LGF is the creation of Charles Johnson, one of the leading boosters of the Iraq War in the early days of the blogosphere. His posts only bordered on hate speech as he popularized the canard of “Islamofascism” and LGF is cited often in Norwegian mass murder Anders Behring Breivik’s anti-Muslim “manifesto.” But Johnson fostered more open vileness in the LGF comments section: Muslims were “vermin,” the activist that was killed by a bulldozer in Israel, Rachel Corrie, was renamed “St. Pancake” while Palestinians required “sterilization,” and the beating of protesters was openly advocated while “targeted genocide” was a popular solution to America’s problems.

After helping establish many of the loony wingnuts (like the epically insane Pamela Geller) still running amok to this day, Johnson parted ways with the right wing and attempted to retroactively cleanse LGF and his own personal reputation by scrubbing his site of incriminating blog posts, banning most active members, and denying his previous warmongering bloodlust with a kind of “what, little old me?” denial of responsibility.

I once heard a discussion of probability which pointed out that the odds of winning the lottery is so astronomically small that you only marginally increase them by actually buying a ticket.

Yabbut you increase the possibility by 100%!

I buy lotto tickets, and keep track of my wins and losses. (Some people trace their genealogy, I trace my winnings.)

Since I’ve moved here, I’ve won about $4,000 more than I’ve spent.

As far as I can tell, if there is a god, he or she favours atheists on lotto winnings.

You play the same numbers every time? Or do you do the quick pick/random number move?

RationalWiki sure has a bone to pick with LGF though.

rationalwiki.org

It would appear someone over there hasn’t actually read LGF. A post to the article says it’s a stub and need help with expansion.

OK, I know I’ve only been a member since 2012, and so missed the sturm und drang of some of the earlier days, but this bit:

After helping establish many of the loony wingnuts (like the epically insane Pamela Geller) still running amok to this day, Johnson parted ways with the right wing and attempted to retroactively cleanse LGF and his own personal reputation by scrubbing his site of incriminating blog posts, banning most active members, and denying his previous warmongering bloodlust with a kind of “what, little old me?” denial of responsibility.

reeks of grudge-ridden BS: Charles has never, AFAICT, tried to “deny” his past ideological “sins”, and most of the RWNJs and Islamophobes departed of their own accord. And “epically insane” as she might be, Pam Geller was “established”, IIRC, well before LGF was started.

There’s a ballot imitative in Louisiana looking to undo the non-unanimous jury verdict in felony cases. It’s been part of the state constitution since the 1880s, and was put in place for the obvious reasons:

Lawmakers in Louisiana passed the split-jury rule in 1880 after the 14th Amendment guaranteed all men, including former slaves, the right to vote and serve on juries. The rule was formally entered into the Louisiana Constitution at the state’s 1898 constitutional convention, where lawmakers declared a mission to “perpetuate the supremacy ofthe Anglo-Saxon race in Louisiana.”

And of course it still has that desired effect all these years later:

In a review of nearly 1,000 Louisiana felony trials from 2011 to 2016, the Advocate, a newspaper based in Baton Rouge, found that about 40% of convictions by 12-member juries had one or two holdout jurors. Black defendants in such cases were about 30% more likely to be convicted than white defendants.

I can respect people who come to their political philosophy so long as they’ve put some thought into why they believe the things they do. They might come to different conclusions than me, and that’s fine. What I have a problem with is people who can’t actually tell you why they are a Republican or a Democrat, a liberal or a conservative or a libertarian. Sadly, I deal with a lot of that in my family - I’m not sure that any of my immediate family members could tell you why they’re Republicans, they just know Team R good, Team D bad.

One of my favorite things I remember my Dad telling me was “Listen, I’m a liberal by birth (my dad’s parents were both staunch liberals) but you’re one by conviction, I respect that so much.” What bummed me with my wingnut friend who I’ve in the past ranted to you guys about (who thankfully doesn’t talk politics anymore) is that he just became a conservative out of nowhere and his talking points were based off what other people were saying rather than hard thought out. I also despise the conservative double standard of claiming to be anti-big government when in actuality well you know. That’s why I grudgingly can understand the libertarians even if they’re mostly dicks.

It pretty obvious with the power ball and Tx Lottery because you can watch them get the numbers. How would they draw new numbers if the old ones weren’t put back? If they didn’t put them back, there would be a few million winners every six weeks.

Playing the same numbers each week doesn’t lower your chances either.

I voted for Dole in 1996 because I didn’t know any better (we were Republicans and we voted for Republicans because that’s what Republicans do), even though I remember asking my mom, “why aren’t we voting for Clinton if he did a good job?” and she was just flabbergasted that I’d even ask.

In 2000, I supported McCain in the primary and then voted Libertarian because I wasn’t impressed by either Gore or Bush. 2004, I was again fairly agnostic and voted third party again, a protest vote. I’d voted for Democrats at the state level by that point, including Fienstien. In 2008, I really liked Obama, but I think I voted third party for the last time at the presidential level (I knew by election day that Obama was going to win, and I liked him, but I still wasn’t sure about the Democratic Party writ large).

I suspect my mom is a Republican mostly because of the Cuban/anti-Castro/anti-communist stuff. But it’s sort of a legacy thing, really. She’s not a particularly devout Catholic (and isn’t a social conservative in any sense). Both my parents are Baby Boomers, born in the mid-50s, came of age in the 70s, started a business in the early 80s, so I sort of get it, but I don’t think they could tell you why beyond “taxes are too high.”

The house on the beach may now be in a ‘mandatory evacuation’ area. Unfortunately, her cousin may hide in the house and not respond to anyone knocking to assure evacuation.

McConnell has weighed the probabilities — and he knows that Cruz and Heller are likely to win their red states; he thinks that with the Russian and Koch Bro money, he can knock off a couple red state Democrats and put the GOP in a stronger position.

OTOH In a real wave election, ads don’t matter, individual candidates often don’t matter; it’s the anger of the voter that will toss members of one party out, regardless of their qualifications or the challenger’s lack there of.

That really does seem like what it is, one last attempt at filling court benches before the election happens. Of course, it doesn’t really matter as the new Congress won’t take over until next January, so the only difference will be that the GOP will look even dumber for whining that “elections matter” as them ram through vote after vote.

Well, since the survey used people from all over the US, it sort of makes sense that Taco Bell would come out as the best Mexican because the really good Mexican restaurants are local independents or much smaller chains. Taco Bell is what most of America knows as “Mexican” food. [shudder]

I could not convince my Mother-in-law that, if you kept playing the same numbers, each time they DO NOT become more likely to win. She couldn’t shake the feeling that, once a set of numbers won, that set was eliminated from the 58 million possibilities.

The gambler’s paradox has immense intuitive appeal. Being able to answer simple questions along these lines correctly is a nearly perfect test of someone’s ability to put reason over feelings, especially if there is some reason to care about the outcome (even if it’s something trivial like rare drops in an RPG).

Israel has granted a U.S. company the first license to explore for oil and gas in the occupied Golan Heights, John Reed of the Financial Times reports.

A local subsidiary of the New York-listed company Genie Energy — which is advised by former vice president Dick Cheney and whose shareholders include Jacob Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch — will now have exclusive rights to a 153-square mile radius in the southern part of the Golan Heights.

Wish I could have an updated version of this, just to trigger the Republi-crooks. A purpose built propaganda plane, the ANT-20 was the largest landplane in the world when it first flew in 1934.

Henry Cavill is out as Superman: google.com

Henry Cavill, who has played Superman in three films, is parting ways with Warner Bros., sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. The British actor, who first donned the blue suit for 2013’s Man of Steel, and then starred in 2016’s Batman v. Superman and last year’s Justice League, is said to be hanging up the red cape.

Warners had been trying to enlist Cavill, who most recently co-starred in Mission: Impossible — Fallout, for a Superman cameo in Shazam!, which stars Zachary Levi and will bow April 5. But contract talks between Cavill’s WME reps and Warners broke down, and the door is now closing on other potential Superman appearances.

Michael B. Jordan is possibly being considered as a new Superman: google.com. I think DC is trying to hard. I could see Jordan as the Green Lantern.

Oh, and about the Witcher: White guys are complaining that other characters may not be white people: news.avclub.com.

Well, that was depressingly fast: Two days ago, Lauren S. Hissrich, showrunner for Netflix’s much-anticipated adaptation of The Witcher, announced that she was leaving Twitter after being hit with a distracting avalanche of hate from online “fans”. Said furor had nothing to do with recently announced star Henry Cavil and his various facial hairs (for once), but rather the even-more-predictable topic of white dudes getting mad about potential diversity in casting.

Specifically, Hissrich began getting shit for a casting notice that recently went out for the key character of Ciri, the mystically empowered ward of grizzled monster hunter Geralt Of Rivia. In the Witcher games—which have been frequently criticized for presenting an abundantly white vision of medieval fantasy—the character was white-haired and pale-skinned. But the show’s casting notice is calling for a BAME (a British designation that stands for black, Asian, or minority ethnicity) actress to fill the role, and, obviously, folks who won’t bat an eye at man-devouring plants or drug-addicted mutants couldn’t be having with that.

Per The Daily Dot, there’s already a 40,000-strong change.org petition asking the show’s producers not to “limit” Ciri to non-white casting. (It also contains a lot of language begging supporters not to attack the show’s production team, which, good luck with that, friend.) The argument is a rote one when topics like this come up: The Witcher books are Polish in origin, and depict a world based loosely on Eastern Europe, so why should there be people of color getting in the way of all the historically accurate white people, vampires, and dragons?

It varies because snow can be light and fluffy or super heavy and wet. My understanding is where I’m at - where the snow tends to be light and fluffy, which means a low moisture content - an inch of rain is roughly equal to 10 inches of snow. Three feet of rain would be equivalent to 360 inches of snow, which is a whole winters worth of snowfall (or more) at many ski areas in North America. The Carolina coast is about to get a whole winters worth of moisture in the Rocky Mountains in just a few days. It’s gonna suck.

re: #326 teleskiguy

Our hotels in my section of Macon, GA, right off I-475 South, which is close to where I live, are all full of out-of state residents from the Carolinas. When Florida resident fled from Irma, the motels in this area were full and I-75 & I-475 were clogged full of traffic headed north. The motels on both sides of town sold out during Irma [both are near I-75,] and the local news outlets are saying the same thing is happening with Florence.

re: #334 majii

A couple I know who live near Charleston are staying with friends in Tennessee. I have a friend here in the Colorado mountains who grew up in western North Carolina and she’s already talking about boat trips on the swollen rivers.

Florence is gonna fuck shit up. I just hope people are out of the way or if they stay, prepared.
