A thrilling and sad day.

The last little runt of a chick was still in the pineapple bird house today. It was poking its head out for hours giving out an alarm type of chirp. Hours of chirp chirp chirp. Fred and Grace feed it some... but then stopped. The little runt was distressed.... chirp...chirp... chirp.

Finally the runt launched itself out of the nest and weakly flew to a rail. Then it floundered about and grabbed my screen door. It was startled by a chipmunk and took off. It was pretty small compared to its siblings. I hope it is okay. I have seen Fred and Grace continue to feed the fledglings after they leave the nest. Perhaps they will still help the little runt.

But... since this event happened, I have seen no Wrens in my yard. They have left me... and I will miss witnessing their amazing energy and skill. My yard is quiet this afternoon.

A good and bad day.

I can't stand 200-500 person rock venues now... with perfect digital sound systems, everybody is bathed & unsweaty in new clothes, no cig or weed smoke in the air. Only phones held high. Feels like I'm not really there.

Bublé does a cover of 'Quando', which is also performed by 'Murph & the Magic Tones' in the Blues Brothers. Which is the same back-up band onstage in this Bublë antidote:

Last gig I went to was the polar opposite - young female lance corporal I was "an item" with had expressed an interest in some of my stranger music CD's. So, on the spur of the moment, I procured us a couple of tickets to see Slipknot (I think it was the "Disasterpieces" tour - that's how far back we're going) and I bought her a Slipknot long-sleeve. She was blissfully unaware of the antics that go on at metal concerts (mosh pits, stage diving, random bottle projectiles etc) so I gave her a little warning brief before we entered the venue.

Gig was great, band was its usual ultra-high-energy self, they were filming for a tour DVD but I don't think we made it into the footage, and we had a great time. At one point, I hoisted her onto my shoulders (much to the annoyance of the mutants behind me) as she went mental to the music.

When we left the venue, she was black and blue, had lost clumps of her hair, was missing one of her sleeves and had several smoke-burns on her arms and back.

"Amazing - when are they here next?" was her final verdict.

It should be pointed out, she was a generic "pop music" kinda girl, very safe, totally sedate and "normal" as can be.

Yup. I don't think I've heard anything they've done that I didn't like. Also, I've only seen them live a couple of times but they were shit-hot, played a ton of material and were very, very high energy.

Oh, and "Iowa" is my #1 Slipknot track (posted it here a couple of times) - it's a delightful little song about corpse abuse.

Just watched "Prey" - the latest movie in the "Predator" series. There was a lot of rumbling about it being an SJW-fest, anti-man, anti-white people, full of forced diversity etc.

Utter bollocks.

Sure, the protagonist, a commanche girl, is at odds with her culture and traditions (female hunters are frowned upon but she's determined to hunt) but she's absolutely not a Mary-Sue, is very flawed but well written and acted. Overall, if you're a fan of the series, it's a decent effort and is certainly one of the better movies in the franchise.



Not the greatest movie ever filmed but decent enough to warrant a watch.

A testament to the high safety found in modern cars. Massive crashes where the drivers survived. Too bad there is not technology to save the people that get hit. A front end crash is most common. Much engineering is done to protect the driver during a front end (or discrete) crash. It is much much harder to protect occupants from a side crash. Modern cars do have side air bags, and they help, but you can only do so much. So many times the drunk driver survives after having killed many others.

Can't we just kill these evil drivers but strapping them to the barrier during an automotive crash test? Image how much we could learn by their execution.

"We're told her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence of alcohol."

That is complete and utter shite. Doctors MUST draw blood in these situations because they need to know what intoxicants may be in the driver's system before administering sedatives and/or anesthesia, which must account for the effects of said intoxicants. Heche is probably as likely to be charged as Tiger Woods was.

I counted 6 or seven stabs, stab wounds are often worse than gunshot wounds. That one to the spine might have have left him paralyzed. Mr Nguyen did it right too. When using a knife, don’t get fancy, just keep stabbing until your attacker gives up or drops. Nice job.

It's the "plug & tug" he employed with the last stab (stick the knife in then yank on it) that made my eyes water.

(It's a taught technique in the military)

I'd be surprised if the shop owner wasn't trained in knife fighting.

Interesting read on what Gazi has been up to these days.
I was reading at a center left to far left news aggregator about a month ago where it was mentioned that someone had set fire to a flag at the Florida headquarters of Gazi's old group Uhuru. In the comments, some had proposed that a white supremacist group had done it and it was a hate crime, I proposed that ex-member Kodzo was a possible suspect and linked to a video he made about his split from the group.
Some people agreed with me, but there were several people that reminded me of extreme lefty versions of Service Dog that disagreed strongly, claiming I was a racist that was going after a fine bunch of activists for their fight against racism.
I think I will have to let them know about Gazi's latest troubles, but I suspect that like BS Dog they will toss in loads of fact free nonsense about this being a conspiracy by The Man (lefty version of the Deep State) that was out to crush their fine movement.

Talk to your friend, or don't bother, because he won't listen to you. You tried earlier when you told him to lie more carefully so it wasn't so easy for a bad person like me to show what a liar he is. I'm sure it was embarrassing for you to see your friend telling such transparent lies.

But _advising_ others to look at this case & _count on_ that cover protecting-them in similar circumstances... is a whole 'nother thing.

And I won't pretend that both free thoughtpolice & John are equally culpable. Nope. That would be False Equivalence. John tried to mend a mess in good faith. & ftp responded by compounding the mess in bad faith.

'Execute' is a loaded term (so to speak).

Nevada's 'Stand Your Ground' law passed in 2012 & I read an article from back-then which said there law didn't establish anything new-- it just codified the status quo as established in precedent cases.

If so, I suspect Nevada has plenty of precedent cases involving gangs of masked bandits robbing shopkeepers. And small details... such as this gang holding the front door open so the shopkeep couldn't activate the remote door lock... and the several verbal requests which the crooks disregarded... should accrue in the shopkeep's favor.

Specifically... the robbers have been charged with felonies... & the law sez deadly force is allowed in the protection of property... IF a felony is being committed.

This example is from Florida, but it's quite colorful & shows how much latitude there is in favor of the victim of robbery:
The Tampa Bay Times identified other questionable cases that judges found justified under Florida’s "stand your ground" law, including one in which a man who saw someone stealing a radio out of his vehicle grabbed a knife and chased the suspect down. The suspect swung a bag of stolen radios at the man, who then stabbed him in the chest with a knife. The fact that [the robbery victim] never called police, hid the knife and sold the bag of stolen radios by the time police caught him didn’t matter to the judge, who [ruled] the case was self-defense.

I am not saying John Corea is wrong on the law. I suspect this poor shop owner has just destroyed his life for the next ten years. I am saying that I think the law is wrong. If a dood in a mask jumps your counter to steal shit you should be able to execute him. Most people do not agree with me.
I think that for most people the decision on whether or not to put holes in another human being is dependent on more than whether the law allows it and "principle". IOW, Jack Reacher is a psychopathic cnut. You either have an abhorrence for the idea or you don't.

Non-deadly force may be used to protect property, or to trespass someone off your property. Deadly force may only be used when you have a reasonable belief an imminent threat of death or great bodily harm exists. In general, use of force must always be proportional.

The brandishing of a weapon may or may not constitute assault depending on the jurisdiction.

Swinging a bag of radios at the victim's head was use of deadly force. That is what justified the use of deadly force in response.

I'm just waiting for a rapist to sue his victim because he caught crabs off her.

:lol:
Isn't it normally the responsibility of the operator of a venue to keep it in minimal compliance with health and safety regs?
Well, if that's the case, I hope our hypothetical rapist conducted a risk assessment, familiarised himself with relevant COSHH rules/regulations and was wearing appropriate PPE before he plundered her filthy stench-trench.

H&SAW cuts both ways.

Bit of trivia I learned after leaving New York and looking into the gun laws, Vermont is constitutional carry (i.e. no permit required to carry), and also it has no stand your ground law for your home. One hell of a combo.
