Of course Republicans have their lies about the 2021 recall election written up in advance.

But I am honestly surprised they are so stupid that they let the lies come out the day before the election.

Their leadership is becoming as stupid as the GOP base.

These very same people would also be giving her shit if she showed up wearing something cheap off the rack from Target or Walmart like a person with a normal-income. Now, imagine if she topped off that hypothetical Target ensemble with a Jimmy Carter-esque sweater with a message about malaise and energy conservation on the back.

It’s nice when complete assholes get sued.

Twitch has filed a lawsuit against two users allegedly behind an influx of hate raids targeting streamers of marginalized backgrounds.

The lawsuit (first spotted by Wired) targets two users by their online aliases: Cruzzcontrol, who is allegedly located in the Netherlands, and CreatineOverdose, allegedly in Vienna, Austria. The two users allegedly orchestrated networks of bot accounts that would spam Twitch streamers of different marginalized backgrounds.

For red light running we don’t know the total number of incidents but 31% of drivers admit to having done so in the last 30 days. This would be about a billion red light runs a year if the scofflaws keep up an even pace. This resulted in 143,000 injuries and a paltry 843 deaths in 2020. That is a survival rate of 99.9999912 %, not even taking into account that half the victims are pedestrians or bicyclists. Conclusion: RED LIGHT MANDATES ARE TYRANNY!

This “man of the cloth” is the most egregious offender on this site by far, and that’s saying a lot. Think of a dumber, uglier, churchier version of Rush Limbaugh. Give him no mercy; feel free to throw rotten tomatoes, chamberpots, rotten fish innards, aborted fetuses, whatever you got, it’s all fair game. And if his family and friends dare show up here and start whining, ask them where they were when he was mocking AIDS victims by reading their obituaries to the tune of Another One Bites the Dust.

Since Bob so generously dedicated valuable air time reading the obituaries of AIDS victims to the tune of Another One Bites the Dust, I dedicate to him my very special personalized version of his favorite song. I call it Another Bob Bites the Dust:

Bob struts cockily among his sheep

With his mask pulled way down low

Ain’t no sound but the sound of the bleats

Collection plates ready to go

Are you ready hey, are you ready for this?

Are you hanging on the edge of your seat?

Out of the doorway the Rona hits!

To the sound of the sneeze, yeah

Another Bob bites the dust

Another Bob bites the dust

And another one done and another one gone

Another Bob bites the dust

Hey, gonna get ewe too

Another Bob bites the dust

How do you think we’re gonna get along

Without you now that you’re gone

You took us for everything that we had

And stiffed us like Al Capone

We’re so happy, we’re so satisfied

That your Hell has central heat

Out of the doorway the Rona hits

To the sounds of the bleats, look out!

Another Bob bites the dust

Another Bob bites the dust

And another one done and another one gone

Another Bob bites the dust

Hey, disinfect the pews

Another Bob bites the dust

Hey!

Ohhh take it! Bite the dust! Bite the dust hey!

Another Bob bites the dust

Another Bob bites the dust Ow!

Another Bob bites the dust Yay Yay!!

Another Bob bites the dust Yayyaaaayyyyaaaayyyeah

Oooooh sheep dip!

Plenty of ways that you can shear a ram

And wrestle him to the ground

You can beat him

You can eat him

You can treat him like a lover

Blah blah baaaaah

But we’re ready, yes, we’re ready for you

We’re standing, but you’re still dead meat

Out of the doorway the Rona hits

Quieting the sounds of the bleats

Another Bob bites the dust

Another Bob bites the dust

And another one done and another one gone

Another Bob bites the dust, yeah

Hey, flushed you down the loo

Another Bob bites the dust

Dip sheep!

RIP Bob. Sorry that you’ll miss seeing your secret crush Freddie Mercury, but please say Hi to Rush for me.

While elephants are kosher (they chew their cud and have cloven hoofs), as a practical matter nobody is slaughtering elephants in a kosher manner, due to the near-impossibility of severing the trachea and esophagus in a single stroke. In 1997, a shochet (ritual slaughterer) in Mea Shearim announced plans to slaughter an elephant, having developed a precision titanium-steel blade which he claimed could accomplish the task; however, he canceled his plan after huge protests from animal rights activists.

Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele has interceded in the troubled launch of a bitcoin payments application, urging users to report problems on his Twitter feed. He asked users to close and restart the government-backed Chivo app if a “currently under maintenance” error screen appeared. He has sent numerous tweets telling users how to download Chivo, which advertises commission-free transactions and which his governments hopes will be embraced by unbanked Salvadorans. Bukele later said the digital wallet app was being disconnected for the second time to “improve user experience and the problems it had during the day.” Douglas Rodriguez, the head of El Salvador’s central bank, said bitcoin adoption needed time to “mature,” while JP Morgan Chase said some technical snags are unsurprising, given the nation “had only three months to prepare for this grand experiment.”

Don’t think of them as pachyderms. Think of them as really large veals.

By the way, have you ever noticed that “veal” isn’t a really a thing until it stands in for “Baby cow meat that is really pale because they aren’t exposed to sunlight and are fed milk until they are slaughtered?” I mean, does any one ask “How many veals did your cows produce this spring?”

Seems like an advertising term so that you don’t have to feel like you are eating “Baby cow meat that is really pale because they aren’t exposed to sunlight and are fed milk until they are slaughtered.”

Well, as I recall you are still in Weatherford which is in the great flat nothing west of Fort Worth. Lovely ranch land.

The thing about about feral mammoths is that they are really, really tall. It’s not like they are gonna sneak up on you in Weatherford.

I eat meat. I love meat. I try to not eat too much though, and I know the environmental impact of it is not good. I will not however as a rule eat the meat of any animal that is intelligent. Elephants pass the mirror-test. I will assume that even if these cloned Mammoths don’t, they will be close enough (and that test is not the only indicator of intelligence).

As far as I’m concerned, killing intelligent animals (Whales, Dolphins, Apes, Elephants, Octopuses, and Corvids) is murder and no different than killing a human. I’m teetering on possibly even giving up pork as it’s looking like Pigs might be close to that list, but I haven’t made that leap yet.

I have pointed out that many Latinos share a lot of “family” values and are religious and rather socially conservative.

But then again, Catholics are not really “Christian” enough for the Evangelicals to fully accept.

And Latinos believe in families in the sense of good public education, strong communities and institutions that help families, which puts them at odds with most GOP policy, which is all about cutting taxes and controlling women (by deputizing private citizen to hunt down fugitive slaves sluts.)

Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus  Sep 14, 2021 • 3:13:44am

Like most Americans I know almost nothing about the rest of the world. Ok, so I know a bit about Japan and its history because I lived there. And I know a bit about Scandinavia because my ancestors came from Norway. And I like to read archeology and ancient history so I sort of have a outsider’s understanding of Egypt and the ancient Near East.

But whenever I think about learning something about India’s past I get overwhelmed. Immediately and without surcease. There is so much buried, so many layers, the English transliterations of words have so many syllables… anyway, I just usually give up trying to understand India. Hoomans have been living there since we left Africa and that’s about it as far as my knowledge goes.

And my interests tend to lay in contemporary events and just trying to live in the era of Covid-19.

Anyway, I started to read about the Padmanabhaswamy Temple because I came across its name somewhere on Youtube, and this story caught my attention:

Royal descendants can keep temple full of riches, rules Indian Supreme Court

That’s from July 2020 and I missed the story completely. And I suspect all Americans missed it, because we were dealing with removing the malevolent one from the White House and trying to survive Covid.

The bottom line of the story is this: the world’s largest hoard of valuable items, ever (and of a size that will never be repeated), will be left in the hands of a single family rather than be the property of the people of India or one particular Indian state (Kerala.)

The news of the contents of the Temple vaults first hit international news in 2011: Hidden treasure worth billions of dollars discovered in Indian temple

How big a hoard? I did not know so I started reading about it, and if the stories are true (and therein lay a problem that calls for some serious investigative journalism) then it is only surpassed in size the US gold deposits at Ft. Knox and at the Federal Reserve Bank, and perhaps by the German central bank reserves.

It’s a stash of valuable items far beyond the wealth of Jeff Bezos.

If one turns to Wikipedia, as is our wont, and look at the entry for Padmanabhaswamy Temple we will be disappointed. The entry reads as if it is largely cut and paste from some Hindu site, speaking of Lord Padmanabha as a real person. (My ignorance of Hinduism is showing here, but I think Padmanabha is some manifestation of Vishnu.) And the English writing is poor. And biased.

Fortunately there is a shorter and better written, though perhaps also no more verifiable, article on Wikipedia about the hoard: Padmanabhaswamy Temple treasure

There’s so much to cover here, but what stands out to me is the role that superstition is playing in this affair.

From the Supreme Court, to the guy they hired to do the inventory, to the locals (not necessarily the temple attendants who of course we presume are highly religious), there are religious fears that something bad will happen if they open up the remaining vaults.

Of the vaults that were opened, the descriptions of the contents include:

Hundreds of thousands of gold coins of the Roman Empire

While the volume of gold in other objects exceed this, this particular item caught my eye.

Who has that many gold Roman coins laying around? Roman coins are common - in copper. There are silver ones too in number. But gold? While collects of Roman coins may have one or two, a few buried hoards have been unearthed that contain many gold coins, I have never heard of any amount of that size. I suspect the item here is what is also written as:

the 800-kg hoard of gold coins from 200 B.C

If these are Roman then they are pre-empire. The archeological value of this find alone is staggering, not to mention the gold.

Other items are supposed from the Greek period, Jerusalem ( I presume Hasmonean coins?), and so forth.

One of the vaults was last open in 1931, and the Wiki entries depend on an article from the Hindu which summarizes their own story from that time: When the vault was opened in 1931

[…] Next to them was “a granary like thing,” full of gold and silver coins. […]

That’s a lot of coins. And that was just one of the (now believed to be) 8 vaults.

And then there are the records: 300 million (yes, million) written records are in the Temple’s vaults, from many centuries. The articles mention the lament of scholars that almost none of these have been recorded or studied. The information hidden in such things is irreplaceable.

Anyway, I will need to look at academic journals to try and get a better idea for what is fact and what is fable. But this story has everything and more:
1) Ancient hidden vaults;
2) Precious items in number beyond any collection in the world, perhaps more than the sum of the entire rest of the world’s museum collections of some items;
3) curses;
4) deaths;
5) intrigue;
6) politics and religion in bed together;
7) history covering millennia.

But again, to me the thing that stuck out most from that 2020 news article, and I presume the story was run in US media too but I doubt it stayed in anyone’s mind for long at that time, is the bottom line which is that the family who are the descendants of the local royal family (their ruling ability was removed in the middle of the 20th century), now are in control of the hoard. They have financial control which I presume means they can decide when and how to change it.

And India is still poor. Even though they want to be proud for how modern they’ve come, there are still a half a billion Indians who are poor. As in really poor. And the pandemic has hit India hard and let’s be honest about this - the poorest people are mostly forgotten. You don’t have to work hard to convince me that most of the cases and deaths from Covid-19 in India simply have not been counted.

So this is wealth disparity on a grand scale. And the Supreme Court over-ruled the Kerala court and gave all that wealth back to the local nobility.

Sure, I do not expect anyone to sell off a cultural heritage but the truth is if you have bags of thousands of ancient gold coins from around the world then those coins came from somewhere else. You could auction them off and raise more than enough money to build hospitals, schools, infrastructure, etc.

I do not expect the actual ritual items should be sold off, or the archeological items. Yet if you have bags of diamonds (and apparently they do), uncut, some up to a 100 carats (!), that’s a valuable thing the existence of which is historically significant but also something that could be sold without losing culture.

Anyway, this is a long entry, but I think an item that has worth. We shouldn’t let history go dark. And in my moral universal a single family should not control possibly a trillion dollars of valuables when so many of their own people are in dire straits.

Here’s a video from 2018, which gives a precise of the story, before the Supreme Court’s decision:

Mysterious Vault B Padmanabhaswamy Gold Temple-EYEWITNESS Report हिंदी | Subtitle

You’ll need to use the subtitles. The video has a million views but I suspect nearly all of them are from Indians (whether they still live there or not.)

The door to Vault “B” is beyond even Tolkien’s Doors of Durin, but sounds very familiar.

Also the video doesn’t discuss the two hidden vaults that were discovered and not opened.

Then again, if you came across a door like this:

… and was told there was a god inside who did not want to be disturbed, would you try to open it?

186
Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus  Sep 14, 2021 • 4:05:10am

Besides the wealth disparity thing, I also wonder about the value of archeology and history in a story like this.

The telling of the attempts to open the vaults to me do not sound like solid archeology. They sound like treasure hunting.

I don’t want to get down on Indians (too much) but even in that video it is clear the authorities are consulting “astrologers” (a translation apparently of the Hindu operatives that consult magical portents) to make decisions, as indeed the written reports also relay.

It all seems so backwards to me.

Oh, did they ask the First Peoples of Canada if they could dump a bunch of hairy elephants up there??

re: #162 Jack Burton, Gunner on Death Star of David

I eat meat. I love meat. I try to not eat too much though, and I know the environmental impact of it is not good. I will not however as a rule eat the meat of any animal that is intelligent. Elephants pass the mirror-test. I will assume that even if these cloned Mammoths don’t, they will be close enough (and that test is not the only indicator of intelligence).

As far as I’m concerned, killing intelligent animals (Whales, Dolphins, Apes, Elephants, Octopuses, and Corvids) is murder and no different than killing a human. I’m teetering on possibly even giving up pork as it’s looking like Pigs might be close to that list, but I haven’t made that leap yet.

While elephants are kosher (they chew their cud and have cloven hoofs), as a practical matter nobody is slaughtering elephants in a kosher manner, due to the near-impossibility of severing the trachea and esophagus in a single stroke. In 1997, a shochet (ritual slaughterer) in Mea Shearim announced plans to slaughter an elephant, having developed a precision titanium-steel blade which he claimed could accomplish the task; however, he canceled his plan after huge protests from animal rights activists.

There’s also the fact that elephants are smart, they mourn their dead, they have language… and their young are SUPER-CUTE OMG HOW COULD YOU THINK OF EATING ONE?!?!

Giraffes are also kosher animals, and while it is logistically impractical to slaughter a giraffe, some zoologists in Israel have harvested giraffe milk and made cheese and yogurt out of it.

From the article:

The bottom line
Here’s the brief case for getting a Pfizer or Moderna shot as a follow-up to a J.&J. shot: The available evidence suggests you will benefit. There are no signs of worrisome side effects so far. And the Delta variant is an even bigger threat to human life than earlier versions of the coronavirus. By waiting, you may be allowing bureaucratic caution to get in the way of your own health.

Here’s the brief case against a follow-up shot: A single shot of the J.&J. vaccine still provides good protection, and the government may soon allow a second J.&J. shot. There is not yet rigorous data on the benefits and risks of the mix-and-match approach with J.&J. And you may need to resort to some deviousness to get another shot.

In Colorado only 1 in 20k J&J recipients contracted Covid, not much worse than the others, and a second shot of J&J is likely to be approved in coming months, so don’t worry. If it will ease your mind, he could go to a pharmacy and lie about having had the J&J to get a Pfizer or Moderna dose.

I was slightly off in my comment. 1 in 20k J&J recipients were hospitalized with Covid. Not quite as good as the others, but still pretty good.

re: #162 Jack Burton, Gunner on Death Star of David

I eat meat. I love meat. I try to not eat too much though, and I know the environmental impact of it is not good. I will not however as a rule eat the meat of any animal that is intelligent. Elephants pass the mirror-test. I will assume that even if these cloned Mammoths don’t, they will be close enough (and that test is not the only indicator of intelligence).

As far as I’m concerned, killing intelligent animals (Whales, Dolphins, Apes, Elephants, Octopuses, and Corvids) is murder and no different than killing a human. I’m teetering on possibly even giving up pork as it’s looking like Pigs might be close to that list, but I haven’t made that leap yet.

I remember being in Japan and looking at octopus tempura (and I love tempura) and not being able to eat it. One of the other tour participants was all, “What’s the problem?” My response was, “I can’t eat our cephalopod friends.” We don’t understand the intelligence of octopus and I just couldn’t eat it.

(I also couldn’t bring myself to eat the whale we were served at one meal, but for more obvious reasons.)

All of these religious exceptions should be denied. Frankly, all vaccination mandates should have a medical exception only. Christian Scientists claim to have an objection to vaccinations. That’s like it - mainstream religious groups aren’t opposed to vaccinations.

The test for “sincerely held religious beliefs” for things like vaccinations has always bothered me. Personal belief should have nothing to do with whether or not a person should be subject to government mandates.

My college kid has the J&J vaccine, and while I’m not really concerned about the rest of us who either got Moderna or Pfizer, his is the one I’m concerned about.

My nephew was in a 2021 J&J study; turned out he was in the placebo group. When the study was completed, he was given the J&J shot. A couple months ago he elected to get Pfizer as a booster. Definitely doesn’t hurt and is likely to boost your immunity.

my amateur understanding is that while individual christian scientists may have an objection, it’s not dogma

Christian Scientists who decide to receive the vaccine won’t be punished or shunned, he said, since the church views the decision as a personal matter.

As a longtime Christian Scientist, Reiman studies the church’s teachings and the Bible, and like other followers adopts a position on how he will live out his faith — which advocates but does not require healing by prayer rather than medical care.

and from the CS pressroom

they also recognize that

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 requires religious exemptions for vaccines based on beliefs, practices or observances be considered “where a reasonable accommodation exists without undue hardship to the employer.”

Until the votes are actually counted and it is clear that Newsom has won, I will hold my breath (metaphorically). My personal conviction is that it has been impossible to get a solid unbiased poll for years and there have been no recent advances in polling technology to change my mind. Democrats who were annoyed with Newsom and have not seen the recently unearthed Elder videos may indeed have voted to throw him out because of minor infractions (like the 2020 dinner) before they understood the true consequences of their actions.

youre not wrong (but not as tall as i thought)

imo 2016 pollster errors are a bit exaggerated.

while they didnt predict all the states right, they were mostly within the moe - ie wisconsin. you cant do much better than that.

2020, yeah they got florida wrong, but also w/in the moe.
and yes, they did blow a few senate races that sure looked like they were going the other way.

the question is compound:
does a poll ‘predict’ right
and
if not, by how much are they off
