Weekend Open Thread

| July 23, 2021

The city’s mayor, council, bureaucracy, etc., make rules and policy at the local level. They impact policing, educating, and other local services. In many localities, the city is ran mostly by Democrats. This is the “system” that many complain is racist to a certain group of individuals. Enjoy your weekend.

    In the name of Elaine Ricci, Hack Stone claims First Post for The This Ain’t Hell Weekend Open Thread on this date, July 23, 2021.

    P.S. Phil Monkress will be working balls this weekend at the Open House being hosted by Navy Seal Diver (sic)/Nurse/Real Estate Agent Douglas Reeves. And if you have any doubts as to (see what Hack did there?) his claim of being a Navy Seal Diver, the late actor Harvey Korman will attest to it being true.

    Comes us here a TAH Friday Weekend Open Thread. Who will be the FIRST to claim the EARNED NEVER AWARDED Title of FIRST?

    I gots to go!

  4. Hack Stone says:

    Well, it finally happened. Last night Hack Stone was thrown in Facebook Jail for a 24 hour sentence after posting a comment on a thread on the Jeremy Dewitte/Metro State Services page. Hack put that time behind bars to good use, earning his Honorary General Equivalency Diploma with a Major in Keeping It Real. Hack plans on taking a skip year before pursuing his college dreams of becoming an Architect/Marine Biologist.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      Do the inmates in Facebook jail do jailhouse type stuff to you, Hack? Or, are you the biggest, baddest MOFO in the Facebook cellblock?

      Asking for a friend…

      • Hack Stone says:

        Hack Stone was in a long term committed relationship, but unfortunately, always a prison bridesmaid, never a prison bride. Two cartons of cigarettes is a pretty steep dowry for some such as Hack.

    • A Proud Infidel®️™️ says:

      I got a 30 day sentence in Farcebook jail for posting something that insulted Che Guevara, you oughtta see the virtual tattoo I got!

      • Roh-Dog says:

        “insulted Che Guevara”? Did you tell the truth about his beach activities with those of the alternative lifestyles?
        Leftists never learn

        • A Proud Infidel®️™️ says:

          I picture Farcebook moderators as Elmer’s glue-gulping man bun-sporting mom jeans-wearing pencilnecked GEEK soy-boys who think like Major Moonbat does and cannot in any way tolerate any opinions or humor that they don’t agree with, minion doofuses who couldn’t make it in the real world!

      • Herbert J Messkit says:

        There’s a t shirt with the Che picture the commie idiots wear, but it has the words “Murdering Commie Bastard”

    • Hack Stone says:

      Hack Stone still has 9 hours on his sentence, and none of you dickweeds even put a buck in Hack’s Facebook Jail Commissary Account. Looks like Hack will have to put out to get a cup of noodles for dinner tonight.

    • Green Thumb says:

      You should have Phil Monkress bail you out.

    Senate panel votes to make women register for the draft. Thoughts?

    • SFC D says:

      Yes. Everybody registers or nobody registers. That’s called “equity”.

    • MI Ranger says:

      There should not be one standard for an identified gender another for all others. Make everyone equal like the constitution!

    • President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neanderthal B Woodman Domestic Violent Extremist SuperStraight says:

      That should include all the trannies and 57 other genders. All register, or none register.

  9. Hack Stone says:

    Things have been crazy in Washington DC since last week’s killing of Nyiah Courtney at the corner of Martin Luther King And Malcolm X. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter have been holding around the clock demonstrations demanding that police arrest those responsible for her death.

    Just kidding. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter don’t give a fuck when an innocent kid is gunned down by a “returning citizen” with an extensive criminal record of terrorizing neighborhoods. No money in that.

  10. Commissioner Wretched says:

    Hello everybody! Long day at work meant I missed the coveted, always-earned never-given FIRST, but a tip o’the trivia cap to Roh-Dog! In honor, how about some trivia? Don’t mind if I do …

    DID YOU KNOW…?
    Was it possible for the “Titanic” to have survived hitting the iceberg in 1912?
    By Commissioner Wretched

    While preparing this week’s column, I received an alert from social media that someone claiming to be me was using an Instagram account to try and scam people.

    Of course, it wasn’t me, it never was and it never will be.

    I really wonder about the people who do this kind of thing. With all that intelligence and creativity, why don’t they just put that knowledge to work legitimately and make a good living?

    Are they really that stupid?

    Thankfully, my social media friends know me better than this and totally ignored the scammer – or even better, had a bit of fun at the scammer’s expense.

    What follows here, however, is no scam. It’s real trivia, which I dug out myself.

    Would I scam you?

    Did you know …

    … Queen Elizabeth II is not allowed to enter the British House of Commons? Her Majesty (born 1926) cannot enter that chamber because she is not a member of it. (Membership has its privileges, you know.)

    … about sixteen percent of American households dress their pets in Halloween costumes? (People with black cats don’t have to worry about it. It’s always Halloween to a black cat!)

    … a Soviet leader tried to have a Yugoslavian leader assassinated at least 22 times? According to informed sources, Joseph Stalin (1878-1953) is said to have sent assassins repeatedly to Yugoslavia to kill Josip Broz Tito (1892-1980). After the last failed attempt, Tito sent a message to Stalin: “Stop sending people to kill me. […] If you don’t stop sending killers, I’ll send one to Moscow, and I won’t have to send a second.” The assassination attempts stopped. (Quality over quantity … it works every time.)

    … the first cat show was in 1871? Organized in London, cat shows later became a worldwide craze. (For everyone except the cats, that is.)

    … the Pony Express did not use ponies? Running from 1860 to 1861, the fabled early mail service of the Old West used horses, not ponies. (And yes, there is a difference.)

    … the ridges on the edges of dimes and quarters have a purpose? The purpose has changed over the years. When coins were made of silver, the ridges discouraged people from scraping off the sides of the coin to sell the extra silver. Now, the ridges tell blind people the difference between, say, a dime and a penny. Additional trivia note: A dime has 118 ridges around its edge; a quarter has 119; a half dollar, 150. (Someone worries about this stuff?)

    … penguins can jump? They can jump up to nine feet high, depending on the species. (A hopping good time, no doubt.)

    … the Titanic did not have to sink? Had the ship rammed the iceberg that caused its demise head-on on the night of April 14, 1912, the damage would have been extensive – but not fatal. The Titanic was designed with six watertight compartments going aft from the bow, and a head-on collision with the iceberg would have damaged two, or possibly three – but the ship could still float with as many as four full of water. By trying to go around the berg, however, a gash was ripped in the side along a rivet line that stretched from the first watertight compartment to just beyond the fifth – and that doomed the great ship. Additional trivia note: The entire collision could have been avoided with the ship’s binoculars. The key to the locker where they were normally kept was held by David Blair (1874-1955), originally the Titanic’s second officer. Blair was replaced just before sailing by Henry Wilde (1872-1912), Chief Officer of the Titanic’s sister ship Olympic, which was being repaired after a collision. Blair accidentally took the locker key with him, but the binoculars belonged to him, and weren’t in the locker anyway. Some historians feel that if the lookouts had the binoculars, the iceberg could have been spotted in enough time to avoid the collision altogether. (The more you know…)

    … the seventh planet in the Solar System was not always called Uranus? Discovered on March 13, 1781 by astronomer Sir William Herschel (1738-1822), the planet was originally called “Georgium Sidus,” or George’s Star, in honor of King George III (1738-1820). The name was not popular outside Great Britain, however, and other names were proposed – including Herschel, after the planet’s discoverer. Eventually, though, the decision was made to use mythology, as with the names of the other planets, and Herschel’s discovery was called Uranus after the Roman god of the sky. (And countless tasteless jokes about the pronunciation of the planet’s name have ensued.)

    … one of the shortest St. Patrick’s Day parades in the world is held in Ireland? Held every March 17th in the town of Dripsey, County Cork, the parade is just 100 yards long. It travels between the village’s two pubs. It may not be the shortest in the world, but it’s short enough. (And if you do it right, 100 yards is enough!)

    … in the city of Hartford, Connecticut, educating dogs is illegal? (I can see it now: “Sit, Fido!” “Sir, you’re under arrest.”)

    … people in Canada eat more macaroni and cheese than in any other nation in the world? (Nothing cheesy about that … holy macaroni!)

    … the capital city of South Korea is aptly named? Seoul, the name of the city, means simply, “Capital,” in Korean. (It’s a capital idea!)

    … the average human scalp has about 100,000 hairs? (I’m way below average, then.)

    … it’s possible that you have gephyrophobia? It’s nothing serious in most cases, though, because it’s the fear of driving over bridges. (Unless, of course, you need to be on the other side of the bridge – in which case, you’re hosed.)

    Now … you know!

    • Roh-Dog says:

      Good data and thanks much, CW. I would like to editorialize a bit, “in the city of Hartford, Connecticut, home of the prestigious Trinity Hartford U’s and UCONN Law Skool, educating [anything] is [evidently] illegal.”
      I hope you don’t mind.

    • Hack Stone says:

      Could you clarify a bit on the Canadian Mac & Cheese item? Is that total consumption, or per capita? And when those numbers on Mac & Cheese consumption were being crunched, did they factor in the spike in consumption around US Military Bases a week before payday when all of the married E-2’s who pissed away their paycheck at the local “gentlemen’s club” stock up on this staple to feed their dependents?

      • Commissioner Wretched says:

        It’s figured by sales of millions more boxes in Canada than in any other country, Hack. Canadians LOVE that stuff! I know it’s a staple in many U.S. military homes too, for the reasons you’ve cited … but our neighbors to the north beat us all hollow on consumption of pasta and cheddar.

        • A Proud Infidel®️™️ says:

          Apparently Mac & Cheese are liked in Canada like Spam is in Hawaii! Come to think of it, the stuff is popular in other Pacific Islands as well.

          • The Stranger says:

            And Puerto Rico, too. Spam is prevalent in islands with US military presence where pork was a traditional part of the diet.

        • Hondo says:

          Another trivia point: Kraft mac&cheese was marketed in Canada in the late 1980s/early 1990s as “Kraft Dinner” (and likely still is today; it was as late as 2012 or 2015). It was also called out by name in the lyrics to the 1989 Barenaked Ladies song “If I Had a Million Dollars”.

          https://barenakedladies.fandom.com/wiki/Kraft_Dinner

      • Thunderstixx says:

        And the best way to make Mac and Cheese is to add more macaroni to a large pot of water, mix in shredded Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese and substitute fresh sour cream to the mix. It is the creamiest and best eating Mac and Cheese in the known Universe !!!
        I missed Thursday’s deadline, so Saturday morning will have to work…..

    • The Other Whitey says:

      Small correction: Titanic was subdivided into sixteen watertight compartments, not six.

      Regarding the alternative collision, First Officer William Murdoch had the conn at the time of collision and, upon being alerted to the iceberg, attempted a “porting around” maneuver. Murdoch knew that, due to the 40,000-ton liner’s 20 knots of forward momentum, simply turning away would see the ship’s side ripped open along most of her length, which would capsize the ship in a matter of minutes if not faster. Porting around consists of turning away, reversing the engines, and then reversing the helm, swinging the stern away and stopping the ship while only presenting her bow to the hazard. Ten seconds faster and it would’ve probably saved the ship with manageable damage. Had he simply charged straight ahead, the ship would’ve remained afloat, but the impact and resulting deformation would’ve killed hundreds of crew berthed in the foc’sle, and quite possibly hundreds more in the Third Class Batchelors’ accommodations slightly further aft. From where Murdoch stood, porting around was by far the best option.

      Murdoch’s family sued James Cameron over the movie’s portrayal of him and won a substantial settlement. Contrary to Cameron’s version, who panics, shoots two passengers, and then himself, the real Will Murdoch died on the roof of the starboard Officers’ Quarters, single-handedly performing the twelve-man job of deploying one of the collapsible boats stowed there. He was crushed when the forward funnel collapsed on top of him. The collapse also killed Chief Officer Henry Wilde, who—depending on which account you read was either climbing up to assist Murdoch or was working to deploy the other collapsible on the port side. By this point, Captain Smith had disappeared—he was last seen in the pilothouse and after being notified that Carpathia was still 4 hours away had by all accounts vapor-locked—and Wilde and Murdoch had stepped up to take charge of the evacuation, both of them knowing that they had an hour to live at best, and both determined to spend their final minutes ensuring that others would survive. Suffice it to say, Jim Cameron is a douchenozzle sack of snake shit for depicting one of the most heroic men on the Titanic the way he did.

      As for the supposed shooting, what really happened was Second Officer Charles Lightoller stopped a panicked crowd from rushing one of the boats by pulling his Webley .455 on them and threatening to shoot any man who didn’t stop. They stopped, as none of them knew that Lightoller hadn’t yet loaded his sidearm. Around fifteen minutes later, Fifth Officer Harold Lowe, commanding one of the last boats to leave the ship, fired multiple warning shots with his Webley when other passengers again panicked and tried to rush the boat. There is a story about an officer supposedly saluting the others before shooting himself, but it has never been corroborated. There is no reason to believe anyone on the Titanic died by a bullet, self-inflicted or otherwise.

  11. I can’t believe that this coming tuesday July 27th will be 7 weeks since my June 8th rotator cuff surgery. Where did the time go as it seemed to go faster than before the surgery.

  12. The Other Whitey says:

    For those interested:

    Decals are done on my cousin’s TBM. Also working on my baby daughter’s B-29.

    • UpNorth says:

      The TBM looks good, TOW. Beautiful job on that B-29 interior.

      • The Other Whitey says:

        The B-29 kit has some pretty good interior detail, including the crew’s bunks in the tail. I cut open the door in the gunners’s aft bulkhead so that the bunks can be seen through the right gunner’s blister window.

        The exterior is another story. I’m having to etch all the panel lines (fuck my life), and the wings fit together like shit. I’m now two weeks deep into trying to blend the leading edges together. Admittedly not working on it nonstop, but still. Baby daughter seems excited, though. She spends a lot of time hanging around the desk while I’m working on it (and trying to keep the f-bombs to myself), smiling nonstop, and her sisters and brother are trying to get her to say “airplane.” So far she’s managed “aaa-waa.”

        • KoB says:

          Coming along very nicely TOW. Thanks for the update.

          Speaking of the exterior of the B29, rest assured that many of us are a’waiting with bated breath (pantpantpantgaspgasppantpantpant) to see what the Nose Art will look like!

          • The Other Whitey says:

            I actually haven’t come up with any for the Superfort just yet. The pinup of Mrs. Whitey is going on a B-17 that will be commencing soon. I’m kicking around something like one of SGT Sarkis Bartigian’s cartoon spreads for the B-29, since it’s for my youngest daughter.

            • KoB says:

              OK, Cool. Had forgotten about the B-17, but did remember us discussing Mrs. Whitey being used as pin-up art, her being so hot an all. I like the cartoon idea for the Superfort for the Baby Girl. Once she learns how to say “Airplane” maybe the other young’uns can teach her to say “Aerial Artillery Platform”. (Tee hee) W.E.B. Griffin, in one of his series, had the FIRST (ht 2 Roh-Dog) Armed Whirly Bird with a leering Woody Woodpecker hurling empty beer bottles. Might have to substitute empty Baby milk bottles.

              Guess Ex-PH2’s would be her character, with a camera around her neck, chunking 10″ cast iron skillets. OAM’s (with her best June Cleaver Smile), sending out barbed comebacks at spapos seagulls.

  13. Poetrooper says:

    Anyone who thinks we aren’t being scammed by the Democrats into believing we have an actual, functioning president just needs to read this from his poorly attended CNN Town Hall:

    “Are you okay? You see now it works, or-or-or- the mom and dad, or-or-or the neighbor, or when you go to church, or when you’re, I-I-I really mean it,” Biden stuttered. “There are trusted interlocutors. Think of the people. If your kid wanted to find out whether or not there were—there was a man on the moon or you know something, or whether those aliens are here or not. I mean, who are the kids they’re talking to beyond the kids who love talking about it.”

    And this: When pushed on whether there are people within the party who do want to defund the police, Biden said:

    “Are there people in the Republican Party who think we’re sucking the blood out of kids?”

    Said with the whole world watching. Can you imagine the glee in many world capitals?

    And with nothing but that empty-headed Kamala Harris waiting in the wings to take over, we are in deep kimchi…

    • Poetrooper says:

      Mea culpa–I forgot to include that nonsensical word salad was in response to a question about vaccines.

      Considering Biden’s response, I suppose it could have been a question about anything…😖😖😖

    • The Other Whitey says:

      That “town hall” (attended by all of seven people) was beyond embarrassing.

      “Most popular president ever” my Black Irish ass.

      • rgr769 says:

        Only about a third of the auditorium’s seats were filled. And I would venture that many of them were occupied by D-rat underlings and media flunkies. So, seven actual Gropey Joe fanbois is probably not far off the mark, as the rest were likely paid to be there as part of their jobs.

    • Devtun says:

      I think Joey used ‘Not a joke, folks’ about 7 times in a 5 minute span. Not a joke.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    I was actually first…

    Extra Mile Casting paid the rest of these guys $50 to stand around and pretend to be here.

    • SFC D says:

      That sort of thing only happens with SEIU members at democrat political rallies.

      • Commissar says:

        I am sure it happens more than we can even imagine.

        Our political process is a dystopian joke at this point.

        And, it was never well designed in the first place.

        • Hatchet says:

          “I am sure it happens more than we can even imagine”.

          – it’s only because you have no imagination Commie-czar..

          Our political process is a dystopian joke at this point.

          – No, it’s just your inability to realize that the joke’s on you..

          And, it was never well designed in the first place.

          – Clearly, it’s been a very long while since you’ve actually read through the Constitution, Commie-czar-ZEK.. FRAUD.

          • Commissar says:

            I have read every single word of the constitution. And voraciously studied every political theory that directly influenced.

            And I absolutely know for a fact you haven’t read the constitution.

            If you had you would know that it absolutely did not create a well designed political system.

            Supporting and protecting the constitution does not mean mindlessly thinking it is some perfect document. The very drafting of the constitution was a compromise born from failure that kicked problems down the road to maintain the union..for a time.

            • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

              HERE you go yet again rambling your UC Berzerkely Professors’ garbage like it’s true and you can’t handle that so many others reject it for the garbage that it is. What would be better in your eyes, socialism like they have in Venezuela and Cuba? I’d gladly pitch in to buy you a one way ticket to either.

              • Commissar says:

                First of all, I read the constitution long before Berkeley.

                Second, show your work.. where am I wrong?

                • The Dead Man says:

                  It started as soon as you hit the reply button and ended somewhere around when you hit submit chief.

                  How much are you paid per post? You only show up when the news is getting fun again.

                • Hondo says:

                  First of all, I read the constitution long before Berkeley.

                  Read it? Perhaps – though given your track record here regarding facts, I’d want verification by an independent, credible witness before I’d believe that.

                  But understood it, and its intent? Obviously not.

                  • Poetrooper says:

                    Hondo, I rather suspect he read it with the same sort of preconceptions as a New York Times book critic reading and reviewing a book by Donald Trump.

                    The Constitution never had a chance…

                    • Roh-Dog says:

                      I wonder what a subsidized life would become if we lived in Madison’s vision of “…the pestilent effects of paper money on the necessary confidence between man and man” (Mad. Fed #44) were removed and those made servile to men of corrupt natures was removed, as mandated in Article One, Section Eight of that ‘compromised’ document (added for emphasis):
                      “The Congress shall have power
                      -To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
                      -To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;
                      -To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;
                      -To establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;
                      -To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;”
                      etc, etc, etc.

                      It seems that without undo influence by the levers of banks the ‘socialist utopia’ bs breaks down PDQ as labors’ value become real.

                      But what would I know?

            • Hatchet says:

              YOU absolutely KNOW for a FACT that I haven’t read the Constitution of the United States of America? YOU DO NOT SPEAK FROM FACT COUCHED IN ANY FORM OF REALITY.
              And given to YOUR stated understanding of the Constitution – yet again you betray yourself as an ignorant idiot.
              But the great news is, no matter how hard you’ll ever try – you’ll always be an idiot ZEK and always a FRAUD.

    ‘I was actually first…’?

    Comprehension and Literacy are just not your thing… But in spite of his good nature and overall charm, I’m sure SFC D would want me to remind you that you’re a FRAUD…

    • Commissar says:

      Wooosh.

    • Commissar says:

      Did you even pass the ASVAB?

      Or did you just slip under the wire during the draft era?

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        You’re projecting again, I see. Your ramblings drip and give off fumes of your own personal insecurity nearly every time!

      • SFC D says:

        You managed to score yourself a commission somehow. That wire must’ve been way high.

        Anyone else want to tell him how wrong he is? ASVAB is not pass/fail. It is used to determine if applicants, who want to enlist in the military, meet minimum knowledge standards and which jobs the do or do not qualify for. There is a minimum AFQT score required, which is different for each service, to enlist. There are several different versions of the test. There are 10 sections and approximately 150 questions. It is a timed test, and is administered via computer or paper. The test is also administered to High School students, 10-12 grade, to be used by school guidance counselors to help students identify possible civilian and military career fields. Most of the people who read or comment on this blog have actually taken the ASVAB, and would therefore know it is not pass/fail. A recruiter may have told someone they did not “pass” the ASVAB when in actuality they just did not get the score they needed for the career field they wanted. As a side note, I recently saw Jimi Hendrix discharge papers that had his AFQT score. It was 8 on a scale of 1-99. Unlike you, commissar, I actually know what I’m talking about as I administer this test.

    Well Commie-czar-ZEK, nice to see you’re still illiterate *shrug* and your spelling and syntax still suck and oh you’re still a FRAUD…

    • Commie-Tsar says:

      I CANS SPELLZ ASVAB!!!

    • The Stranger says:

      Hatchet,
      You’re Canadian, right? You wouldn’t take the ASVAB, so goes to show what that particular individual knows. Oh well.

    • Hondo says:

      The use of the suffix “ZEK” here is apropos.

      The word “zek” was the Russian language term for prisoners in the USSR’s Gulag system. And the USSR was famous for “eating its own” (e.g., turning on party members who fell out of favor) and sending them to the Gulag.

      My guess is that Commissar wouldn’t last a year under that type of system of government – which he seems to admire and advocate – before ending up in some nouveau Gulag.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        Hell, I don’t think he’d even last an hour or two until some Party Official would say “WE NO NEED useful idiot that big, shoot now!”

        • Hatchet says:

          API®™, Hondo, Gwdusn, SFC D, The Stranger, The Dead Man, Poetrooper and last but certainly not least – Roh-Dog. Thank you one and all – Doom on Commmie-czar-ZEK.

      • Hatchet says:

        Hondo – you NAILED it!!! That is EXACTLY why I referenced and applied ‘ZEK’ to Commie-czar’s moniker. As for the rest of your thoughts – they’re also bang-on. Good ‘ol Joe Stalin probably wouldn’t have been overly bothered but dear old
        Lavrentiy Beria would’ve taken one look at Commie-czar’s not-very lengthy Party file and decided ‘Dis von vill be fresh MEAT to feed dee other Zek’s, Tovarish!’. However there is a consistency – Commie-czar-ZEK’S comments consistantly manage to betray him for what he really is – a PRISONER of his own very tiny mind…

    Uh, speaking about turds that won’t stay flushed…I found this on LinkedIn and the name seemed familiar so I did a search on this site and here it is.

    The False Commander “Phony” Phil Monkress (CEO of All-Points Logistics) continues to avoid calls and queries seeking clarification of his highly dubious and potentially felonious Native American, Navy SEAL and Law Enforcement claims.

    As the old saying goes: “Only the Phildo knows where the meat pole goes…in the taxpayer’s asshole.”

  20. Roh-Dog says:

    Didn’t know where else to drop this. Do it (top off preps), or don’t. Hopefully none of us need to dip into our stashes.
