From a previous thread…

I want to thank b.d. for asking the question I had not thought to ask. And wrenchwench among others who so masterfully provided the solution.

I had been faced with the same problem. My workaround had been to rightclick, display in new window. This solution is more… elegant.

re: #20 b.d. (You lost, we didn’t cheat, you lost)

Playing twitter embed videos only show the top half of the video for me? It has been this way for a while. Clicking on the link and watching the video has no problems?

re: #28 wrenchwench

If you don’t check ‘Show embedded tweets’ at the top of the comments, you aren’t seeing the whole tweet all the time. If you click on the thing that looks too much like the retweet icon, more of the tweet shows, and videos play better.

Engrave socks? I do not know about him but my cotton socks are knitted; so all one has to do is get someone (or do it yourself) who knows how to knit. Geez.

Reminded of the very old Jules Feiffer cartoon. I cant find the image, but the captions read:

“I go to the laundromat to do a wash. Included in the wash are 8 pairs of socks.
Out of the wash come 6 pairs of socks plus 1 grey sock and 1 blue sock.
A week later I go to the laundromat to do a wash. Included in the wash are 6 pairs of socks.
Out of the wash come 4 pairs of socks plus 1 black sock and 1 green sock.
A week later I go to the laundromat to do a wash. Included in the wash are 4 pairs of socks.
Out of the wash come 2 pairs of socks. The other socks never show up.
The next day I go to the laundromat. As an experiment I put in nothing but my last 2 pairs of socks.
Out of the wash comes a body stocking. In the body stocking I find a note.
The note says: “Quit trifling with the laws of nature and bring the machine more socks.”

It’s good to hear someone describe Tucker Carlson accurately to millions of viewers.

“a total average of 2.95 million viewers”

Dangerman  Sep 16, 2021 • 10:12:02am

not gonna post this with next week’s pond.
it’s about solar and a bit clever.

we have 3 panels on the roof
they go into these 3 to 1 connectors
and one feed wire comes off the roof into the panel in the barn

we put a volt/watt/ammeter on the end of the wire, before the controller.
problem is there’s no way to know if one panel is underperforming.

we got our replacement panel this week and plugged it in.
turns out another panel went bad after this one did
gah

these early failures are disappointing but so far HQST is replacing them both.

the way forward is we need to see *at a glance*, what each panel is doing. three into 1 meter is ng.

as i said in the last post, we decided we need three feed wires to the roof - one per panel and we’re going back to butt splices as more reliable.

that means we were going to need two more wattmeters - about $15 each.

then it occured to me, a solar controller is only $20.
And yes, you can connect multiple controllers to the same batteries, in parallel!

But the inexpensive ones only display volts, not amps.
and even low voltage (clouds *or* malfunction) still displays as if ‘charging’.

Meters and controllers? no.
i started searching for controllers that display amps and i found one.

so we’re gonna have this:
panel one feed comes off the roof into the existing wattmeter then into the existing controller
panel two comes off the roof into a new controller that displays volts and amps
panel three comes off the roof into a new controller that displays volts and amps

the three controllers will then be wired in parallel to the batteries.
yes one panel per controller is a bit…odd


sounds like a lot but it’s really simple and straightforward.

and there will be pix

based on the reporting that is in evidence from the WH Press conferences for the last six months, I start to get an idea on why the Trump Administration was great for so many of the 4th estate… they’re pretty much following the same method of effort. Cop a few quotes from people who will happily misrepresent any and every damn thing. Half-ass something together, go out and grab a few drinks and maybe commiserate with folks just like them about how hard it is when nobody else understands just how tough you have it. Possibly get laid.

No effort, no nuance, hell, most of these folks just parrot GOP talking points (firmly embedded each and every Sunday, ty MSM for giving GOP an endless amount of soapboxes from which to pontificate). as frames for the questions that NO ONE is asking, missing the point, elevating minutiae while missing the big picture.

Everything must be fit into the competing factions frame, good for one political party or the other, with no actual understanding about the policy proposed… the policy is irrelevant, we’re busy keeping score!

There are a lot of paleocons and small-business Republicans who would echo Dr. Evil’s sentiment there.

Amazing how utterly horrible the right wing is.

Grant Stinchfield was expecting a cookie-cutter military veteran who would parrot GOP talking points, under the misapprehension that military veterans are all conservatives.

When said veteran did not agree with him, he became another feral conservative.

Veterans only exist for conservatives as a tabula rasa upon whom they can project whatever it is conservatives are asserting.

The GOP is a terrorist organization  Sep 16, 2021 • 10:40:39am

538’s generic ballot shows the Dems holding a slight lead, as they have all year. But they do point out that the tide usually turns against the President’s party in midterms, usually in big numbers.

There are often early signs this will happen in the early special and off off year elections. In ‘09, Chris Christie was first elected, and Scott Brown was elected to finish Ted Kennedy’s term early in ‘10 in deep blue Mass. In ‘18, Jon Ossof greatly outperformed Trump in a congressional special election even though he lost, and this happened several times before the ‘18 midterms.

Having said all this, I am ever so slightly optimistic that Newsom’s crushing victory in the Cali recall might be a good sign for Dems heading into the ‘22 midterms. I was pretty sure Newsom would winning, but by a margin much less than his first victory in ‘18, or less than Biden’s victory there in ‘20. But the way he ran Larry Elder.ofd the floor was very encouraging, especially with the way Cali voters were fired up about it.

So with the GOP having sold its soul to the twice impeached and thoroughly disgraced Trump, the Dems *might* have success next year if they tie the GOP to Trump, and all the radicalism that entails, as Newsom did with Elder - particularly when it comes to Covid mitigation. Stressing voter suppression and the TX abortion law would help too.

Strong emphasis on “might.”

The GOP will help by nominating rabid Trumpers in suburban districts, because their base is insane. Newsom couldn’t have asked for a better opponent than Larry Elder.

re: #99 PhillyPretzel

Here’s a key passage:

Like most American Jews, I belong to a denomination that believes life begins at birth and places the utmost value on that life — especially when carrying a future child. That’s why, for example, rabbis have developed a specific process for accommodating a woman’s pregnancy cravings if she happens to hanker for a slice of honey-glazed ham. Her wellbeing, and that of the fetus, matters far more than Kosher law.

That’s also why Danny Horwitz, a rabbi at Congregation Beth Yeshurun, once explicitly instructed a woman to get an abortion after hearing about how another child would put undue stress on her preexisting health issues.
“Thus, when this woman came to me for direction, I told her not that she could have an abortion, but that she must have an abortion, that the God of my understanding would want her to do it,” he wrote.
That advice alone would likely be in violation of SB 8.
I have to wonder how long until a self-proclaimed “baby-murder bounty hunter” like state Rep. Briscoe Cain, one of the bill’s sponsors, fixes his metaphorical crosshairs on my synagogue.
I also have to wonder how long until someone drops the metaphor.

Also:

Synagogues have already become targets in our nation’s increasingly violent culture war. In 2018, a white supremacist terrorist murdered 11 Jews at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh because they supported refugees. The anti-abortion movement hasn’t hesitated to shed blood in pursuit of its own crusade, killing doctors, clinic employees, and security and law enforcement. In 2015, three people were murdered and nine injured in a mass shooting at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood. Anti-abortion extremists are considered a domestic terrorist threat by the Department of Justice.
Now Texas has explicitly put the authority to enforce SB 8 in these extremists’ trigger-happy hands. Frustrated by the bounds of the Constitution, with his signature, Gov. Greg Abbott effectively deputized untrained and unregulated vigilantes to pursue its public goals, and it is hard not to see how things can get worse — much worse — very quickly. In fact, the predictable violence inspired by SB 8 has already begun.

At the bottom of the WaPo piece Milley’s revelation about Trump leaves us with five questions

… comes the one that might make the biggest change in our society going forward:

“Finally, why did the media consistently underplay President Donald Trump’s incoherence, and why do they still resist confronting Republicans about their blind loyalty to a crackpot? I do not have a good answer for that one. Perhaps they need to rethink their role. They are not custodians of the myth of moral equivalence between the parties. They are truth-tellers whose prime obligation is to democracy. They might start taking that obligation seriously, beginning with asking every Republican if the 2020 election was stolen, if the Jan. 6 insurrectionists were justified and how they could continue to heed the direction of someone whose lunacy has not abated since he lost the election.”

Until the media starts actually telling us what’s happening, rather than trying to serve some Magical Balance Fairy, the country will not come to grips with how bad the modern GOP has become …

Yes, Pittsburgh is surrounded by the “Mid-Land” accent. It extends down into Arkansas, Oklahoma and Northern Texas. When I was stationed at Ft Sill and Ft Chaffee, I was always amused because the local accent was quite familiar except for the Southern and western affectations.

On dialect differences, there’s the Great Northern Cities vowel shift going on in a lot of cities _relatively_ near to Pittsburgh but not in Pittsburgh itself.

I had heard about it from a then linguistics grad student friend of mine, and first heard it in action when listening to NPR interviewing someone in Chicago* , who I heard as saying, “It’s two _blacks_ away”. I of course did a double take, then realized, he was saying “It’s two _blocks_ away”.

Great Britain itself has many more regional dialects and accents (and also Scots which is really a separate language), which are more different from their standard English than American dialects are from General American. Of course, this happened over the 1700 years or so since the Angles and Saxons migrated to Great Britain, took over and imposed their language on the locals (and intermarried with them), and developed changes due to distance.

Some of the different British English dialects also have influence from Old Norse (due to Danish rule over large parts of Great Britain — the “Danelaw”).

And immigration has had a huge influence even on Britain’s English. London’s Cockney English has borrowings and influence from Yiddish and Romani.

Years ago I was on a tour that also had a number of ‘Brits’. Based upon their accent, it appeared to me that all the other Brits were able to identify both the region where each member came from and each’s general socio-economic class.

Meanwhile, I had a hard time even figuring out who was from South Africa versus Australia versus the Isles. I was, however, able to pick out the Canadians because they mostly sounded like Northern Midwest Americans to me, though.

re: #152 ckkatz

Years ago I was on a tour that also had a number of ‘Brits’. Based upon their accent, it appeared to me that all the other Brits were able to identify both the region where each member came from and each’s general socio-economic class.

Meanwhile, I had a hard time even figuring out who was from South Africa versus Australia versus the Isles. I was, however, able to pick out the Canadians because they mostly sounded like Northern Midwest Americans to me, though.

Of course, it also took me decades before I was able to pick out some of the regional Southern accents.

South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand’s English dialects and accents (just like America and Canada) developed out of a mixture of various British Isles accents and dialects + L2 immigrant speakers, except with far less time to diverge.

On conference calls, I’ve generally been able to pick out the Canadians by their accents, and yes “aboat” is one of the signifiers. However, it’s not perfect and I’ve met an occasional American from a border town whose accent was basically Canadian (and others from the same area whose accent wasn’t.).

Cleo is having a bad day. She went to the vet and got sentenced to two weeks of wearing a cone of shame because she chewed what appears to be a lump or cyst on the base of her tail. It’s been bleeding but we couldn’t see where it was coming from because she has a triple GSD fur. The doc shaved the area so we could monitor it better while it heals up. We had to exchange the cone for an inflatable collar because she about knocked us both down the stairs yesterday and kept knocking things off the coffee table with it. She also has an infection in her ears and another bump on her back hip we have to have looked at. This shit isn’t cheap and we still haven’t got her yearly shots and meds and all that yet. Sigh. Cleo would also like all of you to know that she hates this stupid collar thing and she is going to bite it as soon as she figures out how.

In college a lit professor breezily told us that Chicago accents have more in common with Brooklyn than with Champaign downstate. He explained that the migration to Chicago originally followed the Great Lakes whereas the people in my parts came through Indiana from Kentucky. It kind of follows with my dad’s family. Started in Boston in 1634, then to New Haven, then to the area between Erie and Cleveland, then to farms in north and western Illinois. My maternal grandmother’s family started in Paris, Ky area in late 1700s and made it to central Illinois.

Japanese vending machines are amazing. Now you can get fried insects in Saga Prefecture.

Foods with insect extracts and edible insects are being sold in vending machines across Japan.

One such vending machine was installed in Miyaki Town, Saga Prefecture, western Japan on Tuesday. It is said to be the first edible insect vending machine in the prefecture.

It is offering 12 types of whole insects, including bamboo caterpillars, crickets and water beetles.

They are fried and sold in bottles for 1,000 yen, or about nine dollars. Each bottle contains around 20 to 30 bugs.

Insects have been drawing attention as an alternative source of protein to solve the global food shortage.

Koga Takahiko, who set up the vending machine, said many people tend to dislike insects, but they taste good. He described them as rich in protein, minerals and nutrition, and expressed hope they will become accepted.

Murdaugh bond is $20,000. His drug-dealer’s bond for helping him out in his “suicide” attempt is $55,000.

The judge did not believe Murdaugh is a threat to the community.

I would beg to differ…

“A grand jury working with special counsel John Durham’s office handed up an indictment Thursday of lawyer Michael Sussmann, who prosecutors have accused of making false statements to the FBI during the 2016 presidential campaign,” the Washington Post reports.

New York Times: “The charge centers on a Sept. 19, 2016, meeting with an FBI official in which Mr. Sussmann relayed concerns by cybersecurity researchers who believed that unusual internet data might be evidence of a covert communications channel between computer servers associated with the Trump Organization and with Alfa Bank, a Kremlin-linked Russian financial institution.”

Giant pickups? Scary black guns? “Beta male” projection? Organized incels? Guys like Walsh have no idea how obvious it is that they are desperately compensating. I’ve seen enough. President Biden should appoint a blue ribbon commission to study the precipitous drop in penis size and general virility among certain white men. . Since it is not all white men (harrumph!) the commission must seek some narrower factor as a cause. Inbreeding? Over consumption of certain brands of beer? Mercury poisoning from Swanson’s fishsticks? All possibilities must be considered.

Former President Donald Trump offered his public support to those accused of joining the January 6 riot at the Capitol, claiming that suspects are “being persecuted so unfairly.”

He added: “In addition to everything else, it has proven conclusively that we are a two-tiered system of justice.

he’s right
who’s complaining they are locked up, the conditions suck and it’s ‘not fair’?

There’s a reason these people ended up hanging out with Jeffrey Epstein, because all of his posturing about science and eugenics was just a socially normal aspect of being super rich: you talk about other people as widgets, and argue with your peers about the ideal arrangement of the widgets in a disinterested manner because widget-arrangement is never an existential problem, just an exercise in trying to maximize comfort and advantage.

If you’ve already decided that you can destroy a body through labor because have a contract, if you’ve already decided that your vague notions of futurism allow you to let people die for a better tomorrow…the guy taking that one extra step of “hey, I contracted these bodies to be mine, that’s totally normal” is understandable.

Different kinds of treating people as solely means to your ends are comorbid.

re: #176 Barefoot Grin

In college a lit professor breezily told us that Chicago accents have more in common with Brooklyn than with Champaign downstate. He explained that the migration to Chicago originally followed the Great Lakes whereas the people in my parts came through Indiana from Kentucky. It kind of follows with my dad’s family. Started in Boston in 1634, then to New Haven, then to the area between Erie and Cleveland, then to farms in north and western Illinois. My maternal grandmother’s family started in Paris, Ky area in late 1700s and made it to central Illinois.

Mine, too. Originally from Mt. Vernon, farther to the south, then most of my school years through BA in Champaign. Family on both sides through Virginia to Kentucky to Illinois or Ohio to Indiana to Illinois.

This works down. I’m poor. Legitimately. When my mom was alive in 1993, we both lived on her Social Security and my state disability check. When she died, I got the furniture and that was that.

A LOT of well-to-do liberals have no problem telling me how to live, judging me on their stereotypes, and getting pissed at me when I challenge them.

I’m white, so for everyone else not-white in my shoes, multiply difficulty by 20x.
