Oh, the long drought is over. Until today, the last rat I saw was in January. #73 is waiting for pick up, either by the vixen or the sharp shinned hawk. Don't mind which.

Any one of a list far longer than the current membership list. The tone is too civil for it to be those 2 so it must be some other obsessed misogynistic "kooks"and "fuckwits".

I don't mean I have anything to do with the site - just that no one has much to add to any of the posts there.

It's becoming increasingly obvious that the era of PZ's infamy is over - and you would be hard pressed to find many that would give a dilapidated fuck about anything he has to say.

Pease Pudding's superpower is being so boneheaded, intransigent and impervious to responsibility and logic that people can't help but go back for another stab. He's the gum wrapper on the shoe of whatever passes for the atheist movement. Ever risen to the bait and argued with a 12 year old on a bus? There's no pretense of coherency, you can't disengage because they won't stop taunting and you can't hit the little fucker.

Yeah, I discussed this somewhere else, and the argument went that it was the father who was the abusive one - because he's religious and doesn't allow his son to wear quote unquote "girl's clothing" at his home, neglecting entirely that the son is only seven fucking years old and the mother and the doctors wants to pump him full of drugs.

A minor that can't drink or smoke or take narcotics, but hormone injections, well, that's just fine and dandy, innit? Brilliant.

I'm up late unwinding. I've not yet confessed to the pit that I do a primarily country-western karaoke show for three bucks a head weekly at a nearby watering hole, which has added a few hundred extra dollars a month for the past couple of years, and lots of opportunity to work on voice accompaniment and running sound. I pay 10 bucks a month to an online service, and the place has already made its peace with ASCAP and BMI, as they have live bands on the weekends. BMI actually shut down an open mic at a mom and pop chicken shack, my first and dearest one.
And here I was, starting to feel sympathy for you.

Country and western karaoke. Well I never.

My faith in corporations (be they liberal, illiberal, or conservative) was never that great to begin with. cf the recent comments by NBA employees re Hong Kong as to where (and in what context) it pays to be woke or non-woke.

Perhaps it's just my bias - but although I care about peoples rights in the abstract sense - there are some people that I care about more than others.
I guess the content of the insane Nazis can cause pause for thought.

It is remarkable. You wanna ask them, 'what part of being less shit than Trump are you having difficulty with, exactly?'

Being less shit than Trump should be no challenge for anyone. And yet they are struggling with it. Amazing.

Duh. I have worked in the tech industry for over 30 years and throughout all of it I have heard that there is a shortage of engineers. They have tried to outsource to India and China with moderate success, but I always wondered where anyone thought all of the engineers in India would come from when everyone was building campuses in Bangalore. It takes years or decades to put in place he university system required to turn out thousands of engineers. I'm sure they ended up hiring diploma mill "graduates" and then discovered that they weren't up to par.

I remember talking to an engineer from a large company whose name is the last part of the second word in the name of the city with the Golden Gate Bridge. They had a group in India and had tried multiple ways to have them do something productive. None of them had really worked out. I think the issue is that the good engineers are already here on H1B visa and the only ones left are from diploma mills.

All the Indian co-workers I had throughout the 80s and the early 90s were brilliant. At some point mid-nineties somebody figured out that American middle managers would hire anybody and soon I had Indian co-workers who knew nothing because someone else had done the phone interview. Nineties bubble was inevitable.

The database software companies I worked for hired boatloads of young Indian men as programmers on H1Bs. They got paid well, but not as well as the Americans. They'd also put in 60 hours / week, and up to 80 in the inevitable crunches before launches. My software engineer veteran friends told me these Indian guys wrote bloated, "kludgy" code that created problems at some point so had to be cleaned up by the old hands. But a lot of the older guys, or ones with young families, started dropping out of the business. The pressure to work extra hours and churn out code regardless of the quality -- or get replaced by another H1B -- was too much.

That's another part of the silicon valley scam -- long hours. I have been lucky enough to work in other parts of the country where the cos of living is more reasonable.

I don;t think anyone can actually work productively for 80 hours a week. But if you are young and single you can be at work 80 hours a week, just not productively.

Meh. :snooty:
I've Been Everywhere" is a song which was written by Australian country singer Geoff Mack in 1959, and made popular by Lucky Starr in 1962.

The song as originally written listed Australian towns. It was later adapted by Australian singer Rolf Harris with English and Scottish toponyms (1963),[1] and by John Hore (later known as John Grenell) with New Zealand toponyms (1966). In 1962, the song was a number-one US country hit for Hank Snow.[2] The song was also recorded by Lynn Anderson (US 1970), Asleep at the Wheel (US 1973), Johnny Cash (US 1996), Ted Egan, the "Farrelly Brothers" from the television series The Aunty Jack Show (Australia 1974, a parody version, on the album Aunty Jack Sings Wollongong),[3] John Grenell (NZ 1966), Mike Ford (Canada, 2005), The Sunny Cowgirls and the Statler Brothers. Harvey Reid also included the song in his Dreamer or Believer album.

Motorcyclist Who Identifies As Bicyclist Sets Cycling World Record
NEW YORK, NY—In an inspiring story from the world of professional cycling, a motorcyclist who identifies as a bicyclist has crushed all the regular bicyclists, setting an unbelievable world record.

In a local qualifying race for the World Road Cycling League, the motorcyclist crushed the previous 100-mile record of 3 hours, 13 minutes with his amazing new score of well under an hour.

Professional motorcycle racer Judd E. Banner, the brave trans-vehicle rider, was allowed to race after he told league organizers he's always felt like a bicyclist in a motorcyclist's body.

"Look, my ride has handlebars, two wheels, and a seat," he told reporters as he accepted a trophy for his incredible time trial. "Just because I've got a little extra hardware, such as an 1170-cc flat-twin engine with 110 horsepower, doesn't mean I have any kind of inherent advantage here."

Banner also said he painted the word "HUFFY" on the side of his bike, ensuring he has no advantage over the bikes that came out of the factory as bicycles.

Some critics say he needs to cut off his motor in order to make the competition fairer, but he quickly called these people bigots, and they were immediately banned from professional cycle racing.

I loves me some Tulsi. I don't agree with many of her policy positions... but... how many presidents get everything they ask for? I suspect she actually shares my views on most topics but has to run toward the left to have any chance of winning the nomination. I just find her refreshing. She lines up perfectly with my beliefs about "regime change wars". She is also a great communicator.... she is not a racist ninny like the other Dem candidates. When the primary comes to Michigan she has my vote (we have an open primary system). I hope she lasts long enough to get here.

Meh. :snooty:
I've Been Everywhere" is a song which was written by Australian country singer Geoff Mack in 1959, and made popular by Lucky Starr in 1962.

The song as originally written listed Australian towns. It was later adapted by Australian singer Rolf Harris with English and Scottish toponyms (1963),[1] and by John Hore (later known as John Grenell) with New Zealand toponyms (1966). In 1962, the song was a number-one US country hit for Hank Snow.[2] The song was also recorded by Lynn Anderson (US 1970), Asleep at the Wheel (US 1973), Johnny Cash (US 1996), Ted Egan, the "Farrelly Brothers" from the television series The Aunty Jack Show (Australia 1974, a parody version, on the album Aunty Jack Sings Wollongong),[3] John Grenell (NZ 1966), Mike Ford (Canada, 2005), The Sunny Cowgirls and the Statler Brothers. Harvey Reid also included the song in his Dreamer or Believer album.
You can’t beat the original and the best.

Dang. I closed out Thursday's charity show with what I always used to think was the original 'I've been everywhere' but I'm still learning history I guess

Mayor Pete wants sweeping regulations and oversight of businesses to ensure women get paid equally for equal work:

Women already get paid equally for equal work:
https://www.huffpost.com/entry/wage-gap ... ccounter=1
I'm of the opinion that if any corporation or business says there is a wage gap, it means they admit they don't pay women equally for equal work.

They want to virtue signal, but it's a double-edged sword. Oh, but they're the "good ones". Unlikely. :snooty:

I mean, if they were asked the question they would most likely say there is a wage gap, but how many of them would actually admit that they are part of the problem?

Here's an example:

https://www.businessinsider.com/microso ... gap-2018-8

If there is a wage gap at your company and you are the CEO you can solve it tomorrow buy upping the salaries of the underpaid (or cutting the salaries of the overpaid). And not enough women in management? Solve it tomorrow by promoting a bunch of women into management. The other idea that goes along with this is that there is no such thing as a meritocracy, so you should be able to randomly promote women.

The fact that no one does this means they are just virtue signalling.

Except JP didn't write it. A parasite who sells JP's words did that and keeps the profit for himself. https://www.pzwatch.com/?p=1026

Howling, non-stop winds here in NorCal leading to very high fire danger. Electric power shut off for millions again. The Kincaide fire in Sonoma is at 30,000 acres this morning, 10% contained, and likely to wipe out the lovely town of Healdsburg today or tomorrow. Massive mandatory evacuations and advisories all the way to the coast. PG&E admits it was started by another of their faulty transformers. PG&E helicopter has been flying over my neighborhood checking on power lines. Nice to know that one is 1 mile from the ranch. If it started a fire, my egress would be blocked and I'd have to shelter in the riding arena.

Heads should roll, but you know they won't. A private public utility is an oxymoron and an abomination ripe for corruption.

Meanwhile, our dry-drunk governor is focused on pardoning illegal immigrant felons to hinder their extradition.

Are you saying they've caught themselves in a rhetorical trap, or do you actually believe they pay women less for the same work?

Not as sneaky as in French, where you just add '-- errrgghhrrhay' to the last word of each line.

Here's a little bit of Ford porn for Matt. One of the benefits of living in Hooterville and Mayberry is that neighbors like my Eb and Goober here can replace your 300 inline-6 oil pan gasket easy as pie.

Read and approved. I'd personally be very happy if the dem candidates ignored me and my kind until after the election. That ridiculous 4 hour long LGBT town hall pretty much handed the election to Trump or which ever republican runs if Trump is in jail.

Currently in Harpers Ferry. Was touring the historical sites and though I haven't googled it yet, I'd be willing to bet that the modern view of John Brown is that he was a nazi, or all around garbage person with a white savior complex.
