    ransomnote to woofie

    I remember watching a program like 20/20 featuring an art gallery specializing in modern art. One work for sale was comprised of a peg board that had two skill saw cuts in it. The work cost thousands and the gallery expected it to sell well, the price was in the tens of thousands. The gallery owner was careful to point out that the wood dust on the floor, which had been cut by the skillsaw, was OF COURSE included in the purchase price. Personally, I think a workman accidentally cut into the wall and the gallery owner pronounced it art...for sale.

  • Coal Ash Is [100 times] More Radioactive than Nuclear Waste

    ransomnote to grundle

    Naturally the nuke apologists would put forth this failure of a comparison. For instance, there’s the little incident at Fukushima wherein three nuclear power cores were released into the environment in one earthquake followed by tsunami and have been venting radioactive waste into the air, land and ocean for the past five years and will continue to do so indefinitely. Can you name a coal disaster that had this kind of devastating impact and long-term rammifications for human health? How much MOX is there in coal? Because at least one of those Fukushima cores was MOX.

    Let’s make a better comparison. How long could you safely hold a lump of coal on your hand compared with how long you could hold a lump of uranium before it harmed you? Why does DOT require massive lead shielding just to transport radioactive ccesium that is much less powerful than uranium or plutonium from nuke power plants? If coal was so radioctive, why wouldn’t nuke plant ts use it to produce energy instead of uranium? Why is it legal for me to buy a lump of coal but not a lump of uranium? Why is there no “weapons grade” coal? Nuke apologists should know enough science to understand the sham science displayed in the OP is propaganda. Either professional standsrds for the nuke industry are absent or they are intentionally deceiving the public with trash commentary like the OP.

    ransomnote to Norm Lenhart

    “Now someone tell me that Fuku was or is going to end life on a continent.”

    I never saw anyone claim that Fuku was or is going to end life on a continent. I’ve seen sociopathic nuke policy put forth by nuke apologists - those pro nukers often accuse anyone who wishes to discuss the epic levels of radioactive waste (fuku) being vented into the ocean and atmosphere of engaging mindless hysteria - all it takes is a comment like mine and suddenly accusations of “a continent is going to die” will falsely be attached to me. Sometimes nuke apologists post pictures of people panicking and yelling “oh noes” but that’s just propaganda. I’ve never, and will never, see the nuke industry accept any responsibility for what’s going in Fuku. Pro nuke “discourse” is just ridicule and nasty jokes.

  • Black Quarterbacks Are Benched Twice As Often As Whites, Study Finds

    12/14/2015 8:09:55 PM PST · 50 of 67
    ransomnote to MinorityRepublican

    I recall reading that a similar study had been conducted regarding the prison sentences handed down to blacks versus whites. Blacks with charges similar to those faced by whites received longer prison terms or prison as opposed to parole. I don’t know if the study uncovered actual facts or substituted with politics. But I recall a commenter on an article saying that the culture that race hounds like Sharpton helps shape insists at every turn that whites hate and harm blacks. By the time a black male has been inundated with “whitey hates blacks” for about 20 years, and he’s brought up on charges that should humble anyone not wishing for years behind bars - he makes THE BIG MISTAKE of glowering and strutting in front of a judge/jury as if the court is beneath them and they keep sneering like a tough guy who’s indestructible - all this focused on “defending himself” from those imaginary white monsters Sharpton always lied to him about.
    SO the black male doesn’t look at all contrite compared with the white kid who’s frightened of prison and willing to say anything, apologize to anyone to avoid time. I’d go even farther and say that friends/family members may push a young black male to “keep his head up” and not be “bowed” by the “white” legal system when all a judge/jury wants to see is that the guy understands and won’t do it again. So - swagger can convince a jury that a black defendant is not regretful and in fact, intends to resume his life of crime - they give him longer prison time etc. I think there may be something to this.
    Might it be the same with sports? The need to “answer to no one (white)” and swagger and defy is amped up even more among black players than the overly self assured white players? Is it the grown up version of “Parents punish children largely based on the child’s attitude and understanding that they will obey going forward.”?

  • The 29 Best Guard Dogs

    ransomnote to MtnClimber

    All seem reasonable except the staffordshire terrier, which has a nasty documented history of killing its owners or others unrelated to any guarding of the family. Some of them are great, some are deadly and there’s no way to tell the difference until one day, doggie snaps and/or kills. As guard dogs, they aren’t that easily trained. They are less likely to bark to protect the property and are more likely to attack without warning. I think a yappy dog would be better than a staffordshire terrier.

    ransomnote to UMCRevMom@aol.com

    Fabric stores in California often have, in my experience, the least eductated staff in retail.
    I presented a 50% off coupon to the clerk who had just cut sections of fabric for me. She didn’t recognize the coupon so naturally, she bellowed in a long shoreman’s voice “You can’t use that! That’s not good!” and to prove it to me - she passed the coupon over the scanner and my $48 purchase was reduced to $24. She pointed to the reduced amount and said “See, that’s not 50%!” I was staring at her involuntarily - not knowing what kind of response I might give.
    I pointed to the screen, “Well, uh....$24 is 50% of $48 dollars...” She interrupted me at earsplitting volume again, this time ennunciating each work for slow-witted me, “You. Can’t. Use. This.” and she ordered me to watch while she cleared the scanner again and re-scanned. Once again, the $48 value was reduced to $24 and she said, “See! It doesn’t work! YOU.CAN’T.USE.THIS.” I said quietly, “Well, then you’ll want to stop scanning the coupon because it reduces my purchase by 50% each time....’ She gave up trying to explain it to the troglodyte (me) and printed the ticket for me to take to the cashier with my fabric. I paid the cashier the $24 plus tax, as specified on my ticket, and left. Later I heard the clerks all hide bolds of fabric under the tables at the back of the store so they don’t have to shelve them at the end of the day. Wasn’t surprised.

    The ladies were all white, undereducated women with, apparently, small children at home and were otherwise unemployable.

    ransomnote to Norm Lenhart

    Never heard that Fuku was going to end life on a continent. What I heard as medical problems like those suffered by Chernobyl victims and thyroid cancer and nose bleeds, exhaustion etc. do exist in Fuku - residents are not allowed to talk about it publicly so they try to get the word out secretively. Give it a year, and it will have leaked out more. Is it likely you can keep people living, breathing, eating, drinking food water air containing radioactive waste and stay healthy? Uh, no. Scientists reported illnesses and deaths from Chernobyl and the radiation industry pretends that all just didn’t happen, didn’t exist, no one was harmed. So now Japan has had its chernobyl and once again, the same chorus is insisting it didn’t happen, didn’t hurt anyone.

    I’m sure everyone heard about the explosion of a trench containing “low level radioactive waste” about 100 miles from Las Vegas, right? Yesterday , news coverage included comments that residents were “flat out lied to” (told there was debris on a road, hence road closure when in fact it was radioactive debris ejected from a trench in an explosion Today - no mention of lying to residents - news stories nice and clean now! Of course.

    Uhhhh....you haven’t been following Fukushima...I can tell. The Japanese gov made it illegal for physicians to treat patients from Fukushima “without authorization” and then they enacted laws making it illegal to “gossip” about Fukushima so the average citizen can’t share info. But citizens there do buy geiger counters and report medical issues as well as possible (back channels). So now, only trickles of information come out but the news is not good, in fact, it’s bad. Blacking out coverage and eliminating access to objective healthcare doesn’t mean Fushima is not harming people and has not harmed people.

    You said:
    That Security by Obscurity canard has been shot down so many times it is ridiculous. There have been Windows worms and viruses written to exploit computer populations with fewer than 20,000 vulnerable machines and they were ALL infected within 30 minutes of the virus/worm being released into the wild. In fact, in the past, one was written to exploit a vulnerable population of fewer than 125. If your Security by Obscurity claim were true, no one would have written those exploits.
    _____________________________
    I say:
    This is cherry picking on your part. The first MAC I used in 1990 crashed constantly with a little bomb icon displayed saying “System Crashed. OK?” Now, you had no other choice but to click “OK” like it was just fine with me if I just lost my work. New to MACs, I didn’t realize it had a MACRO virus in it’s word processing software so I lost weeks of work and infected a branch office in New Jersey when I visited (and to think, they hated us because our group was from California. Think how i felt calling them and telling them their MACS now had the virus I brought on a disk.) You cite the examples of viruses written for less than 20,000 machines and then less for 125 machines. To little information to bolster your point. New operating system alreay infected? Then there’d be less than 20,000 live but the virus was written anticipating adoption (some buggy version of Windows is coming! Release the hounds!) by more computers. Small numbers of computers may reduce virus production (i.e., MACS) but if those few computers have high value information (Satellite) or are on the leading edge of the next technology, then yes - viruses are written in advance of wide exposure. Talking in terms of market - I haven’t heard that Ransomware was written for MACS but I could be wrong....
    ______________________
    You said:There are now over 100 million Macs in the wild, with 99% of them running completely bare naked of any anti-virus protection and yet there are STILL zero viable viruses/worms in the wild after 17 years of OS X actually being in the wild itself. Yet, no one has succeeded in writing a successful computer virus/worm for the OS X system.
    __________________
    I say there may be 100 million Macs in the wild (how many are in 3rd world countries?)- how many of them are thought to house key information worth stealing? Business still = PC’s (Unless art or music). Who wants to steal money from “starving artists and musicians”? How about investment bankers (PC’s)? Now you’re talking.

    You say: There is a legitimate reason why Apple Macs are far more secure than Windows. In addition, there are only 58 known Trojans in eight families for the Mac, and every one of them is known to the OS which will warn the user if he or she tries to download, install, or run any of them and require and administrator’s name and password to continue with any of those steps. It takes INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH STUPID to continue and be infected on a Mac with any one of them.

    here are more than enough Macs in the wild to attract hackers and miscreants to hack into them, but they still have not. These data on user IT call center use is from LAST WEEK. . . and they are from a very reliable source, IBM, who is reporting on REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE, not from some fly-by-night Mac fanboy.
    ____________________________
    I Say: If MACS gain enough market share and a reputation for housing high value information, the viruses will come.
    _________________________________________
    You say: The fact is, ransom note, that Macs can run far MORE software than any Windows computer can . . . because they are true UNIX™ computers capable of true multi-user multi-virtual machine environments. I have access to the entire libraries of everyone of those operating systems. I also have Virtual Machine instances available to me of THEOS, MS-DOS, Amiga-OS, the original Apple MacOS 9.2, and emulations of the C=64 and C=128, and Atari lines, which I can load in, should I have need of them. . . and access to all of their libraries of software.
    ________________________________
    I say: “Can run” ? But they don’t. The software library is what I reference everytime I buy a PC and because Windows can’t limit software development to the extent that MAC can, more programmers write more software for more purposes, more competition etc. then MAC can feasible field. MAC has to license every piece of software it develops and when I go to look for a utility for MAC, if APple didn’t bless it, it doesn’t exist. With PC’s, I have access to more software actually written and sold or offered free. Apple’s theoretical advantage (i.e., your claim that Unix seals the deal) doesn’t mean anything to me if I can’t buy it or I have too few choices.
    I’m glad you like Macs - I don’t think that software produced anywhere by anyone is bullet proof. You’ve heard that there are hacks into aircraft, pacemakers, self driving vehicles but you’re certain that Macs are invulnerable because...well because, they are Macs.

    Well-when I bought my first computer in 1987, I could choose between spending $6k (Mac) and $2K (PC) for similar functionality. Buying that PC meant I could choose from a wider array of software programs - MAC locked in licensing so if APPLE doesn’t approve of the program, you won’t be able to buy it. The elephant in the room - fewer MAC viruses because MACS are a smaller population. If tomorrow, MACS were everywhere and PC’s were a small portion - then MACS would have more IT support calls and businesses would have to pick from much smaller libraries of applications - sometimes not finding an equivalent in MAC land. I like MACs - it’s just that this article misrepresented reality.

    Just reading the sneers suggesting that these women “waited so long” means they are just in it for money is nauseating. Should these women have spoken up right away so the same people could accuse them of being in it for money years ago? The victims would have been younger and without a settled career so they would have been ripe for revictimization by those who would sneer that they were lying about a “great man” because they wanted his money. There is no point in time where victims of a famous serial rapist would be free of the accusation that they are lying for money. Even though it was too dangerous for his victims to accuse an icon individually, decades ago, there is a little more safety in numbers.

    I agree.
    Here’s a link about how writing “by hand” triggers different areas of the brain compared with tracing letters or keyboarding.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/03/science/whats-lost-as-handwriting-fades.html?_r=0

    Here’s an odd quote from the next link:
    “ Our new U.S. Secretary of the Treasury can’t (or won’t) write his own name on the new money being “

    and

    “Yet scientists are discovering that learning cursive is an important tool for cognitive development, particularly in training the brain to learn “functional specialization”[2] (link is external)—that is, the capacity for optimal efficiency. In the case of learning cursive writing, the brain develops functional specialization that integrates both sensation, movement control, and thinking. Brain imaging studies reveal that multiple areas of brain become co-activated during the learning of cursive writing of pseudo-letters, as opposed to typing or just visual practice.”

    So they found him dead and are speculating he was hit by lighting?

    Unlike many low information voters, France’s nuclear safety regulators seem to be aware that Japan has had three nuclear reactor meltdowns, two of which exploded and the explosions spread some radioactive waste over the island nation, deposited some of those wastes far downwind (Canada, US) and has been and will be dumping many tons of radioactive waste tainted water into the ocean for many many years to come.

    I doubt it’s safe to try to find people the way you are trying to do so. The gay activists would damage/destroy anyone claiming to be gay who believes it is a mental illness.

    Words you are putting in most people’s mouths so you can respond to arguments that were not made in an effort to discredit them.
    ___________________________________________

    I didn’t put words in mouths. My post is obviously my summary analysis of the behavior, not the words, of Duggar supports. That’s why most post clearly says “Duggar supporters seem to want...” instead of claiming that they “Said they want...”

    By his own admission Josh declared his behavior at the time and continues to do so today.
    ____________________________________________________
    Me: No, at the time, he hid his behavior and snuck into their bedrooms to molest them while they slept or fondled them while he distracted them by reading a book in order to escape detection. Today, he has no choice but to admit it.
    _____________________________________________________

    The truth in this family matter is was a crime committed and or was it covered up. Legalities come into play then.
    _____________________________________________________
    ME: Well, no, not the truth. Do you mean “the real issue....”? If so, I think it’s only part of the issue. The other parts include why didn’t the family protect their daughters and why is there a public effort to imply the daughters needed no protection from their molestor, and why should the molestor remain without legal consequences (e.g., sex offender registry) because he’s really really sorry (for molesting his 5 year old sister), and why should the Duggars retain their “role model status” in the public eye given that they have not admitted their failures and why don’t they seemt to care how their denial of their daughter’s abuse makes their daughters feel.
    ______________________________________________________

    If it can be determined that the tabloids/media are to blame for this development...then “shows on”.

    Diverting the attention away from Josh is the name of the game here...
    ____________________________________________
    ME: We agree that it this OP seems to be the game of diversion from Josh.
    ___________________________________________

    Frankly it should all just be forgotten...but many have a monetary stake in this family besides the family so it’s going to keep being played out....
    ___________________________________________
    ME: Can’t agree with you. If the DUggars hadn’t inked a book deal while knowing what lay in their family’s past, the eventual revelation of the abuse would not be on the national news and exposing their daughters to instrusive media etc.
    I believe that whatever happens now should acknowledge their daughters trauma, the failure of the Duggars to protect their daughters (and the parents private, humble apology to the daugthers for this failure, the decision to put the family’s personal lives on TV as role models which further denied their abuse and exposed them to inappropriate intrustive reportage), the fact that Josh’s behavior toward his sisters is not normal or without conseuences and the registration of Josh in the sexual offenders registry because there isn’t a cure for those who molest children.
    ______________________________________________________
    ....and the family is willingly compliant....as they have been since the get go when they chose to exploit their family nationally and internationally as celebrities.
    ______________________________________________________

    ME: Well said.
