Weekend Open Thread

| May 12, 2023

There’s a subreddit that focuses on conservative memes and on how “the right can’t meme.” You could get some good memes from this subreddit. This one mocks the idea of someone identifying as someone or something they are not. Enjoy your weekend.

4th… gettin’ close to Ace on ya, Reb!

Have a GREAT weekend y’all!

If offended by the WOT: FoF crown holder, please file your complaints with Ed. He loves ’em!!

Just got back from a few days at the Winnipesaukee area… man what a place!

Back to the grind….


Purposely laying back, giving you a shot, my Brother. It’s very lonely here at the top. Struck out to the pond ’bout noonish and coaxed a mess of them Bewiskered, Bottomfeeding, Finned Fellas into the bucket. Said fellas are now fillets, soaked in milk ‘n egg dip, coated in cornmeal, and ready to take a dive into a cast iron cauldron of Crisco. The “shutup dogs” mix is infused with a drollop of home squeezed Cane Syrup from the jug gifted to me on weekend past. Passel of hand cut spuds are at the ready. You have your choice of the House Wine (Sweet Iced Tea), Mr. Yuengling’s Golden Elixirs, a gifted jug of North Georgia Apple Pie Stump Water, or a local gift of Peach Pie Stump Water. Pro tip…The Peach Pie is rated at a full 180 proof, the Apple is a 90. You have been warned. Proceed at your own risk.

I think in this case a public hanging would be well deserved…and a warning.

BUT since the victim is White, that makes the attack all his fault becuse the alleged perps are “Victims of Society” who need a break and all that crap.

IMHO anyone who truly believes that kind of crap is just as guilty as the pissass punks who did that.

She does look like she had a stroke. Everybody all worried about the age of presidential candidates, when we should also be concerned about those who make laws, mostly against us.

Term limits, or mandatory retirement at or by age 70.

The DNC doesn’t give two hoots of a ratshit as long as she votes according to the party agenda, in some places you could run a vegetable on the D-rat ticket and it’ll get elected, just look at Pennsylvania’s newest Senator for proof!


Did someone say memes?


I do pray that we are chockfull of both meme smyths and delightful thieves of, wouldn’t want any other company as this ship sinks into the briny.

The old Easy Co. comic books.
Love’d ’em.
I’d pick up empty coke bottles alongside the road (at 3¢ each) and turn them in to get the money for the latest comic books (at 12¢ each).
I think sales tax didn’t start until something like 15¢, and I’d have 24¢, so I’d decide which two I wanted, buy one, pay the guy (to whom I’d just sold the bottles) walk out the door, walk back in the door and buy the next one, paying him the other 12¢.

Yes, I was a juvenile sales-tax-dodger.

Hack Stone checking in again, well after the race, as Hack is a victim of the vast chicken wing conspiracy that prevents Hack from posting at the corporate world headquarters of the proud but humble woman owned business that sells software to the Federal Government formerly located in Bethesda Maryland. Some day Elon Musk will buy this blog and restore Hack’s right to post.

On this date in n 1986, Top Gun had its world premiere in New York City. Top Gun was awarded praise for the accurate portrayal of life in the US Military, particularly the scene where he was racing his motorcycle along the flight line while wearing no helmet or reflective vest, and not immediately being pulled over by five Military Police cars.

Good grief, Roh-Dog! Four in a row! One more and you’re an ace!

Tribute must be paid. To that end, I offer a week’s worth of collected trivia, late (to be sure) but here. Present, even. Enjoy, friends!

Did a man disappear in 1876 only to reappear in New York in 1950?
By Commissioner Wretched

Since the headline question this week has a rather long answer, I’m going to keep the introduction to the column short. (You’re welcome.)

Lots of trivia ahead, so don’t detour … take the straight road to fun! Read on!

Did you know …

… it’s good to be the queen? Especially in an ant colony. While the average worker ant has a life span of between five weeks and two years, depending on species, queen ants have it made – they can live for up to 28 years. (Royally happy about that!)

… polar bears are very territorial? For instance, there is a recorded incident where a polar bear actually attacked a U.S. Navy submarine. In the bear’s defense, the USS Connecticut had broken through the sea ice near where it was hanging out in 2003, thus giving the bruin a reason to attack. (That bear still tells the story of the day he scared off a submarine, too.)

… weather forecasters in Moscow try very hard to be accurate? In Russia, especially the capital, meteorologists can face fines if their forecasts are inaccurate. (It could be worse. They could be sent to Siberia, where their forecasts would be accurate if limited to the word “cold.”)

… Mondays are the most unproductive days of the week? According to a study, on average only about three and a half hours’ work is actually done on Mondays. (The rest of the day is spent complaining that it’s Monday, I would guess.)

… butter and cheese were the first food products allowed by law to have artificial coloring? (Guess that natural purple color wasn’t selling very well.)

… a man from 1876 is believed to have time-traveled to 1950? According to the story, on an evening in June 1950, a man suddenly appeared in the middle of the street in Times Square, New York. The man was wearing very old-fashioned clothing and had a hair style that was at least 70 years out of date. He panicked, began to run, and was hit by a taxi and killed. When his body was taken to the morgue, his unusual clothing had unusual contents – a token for a beer, good at a saloon nobody had ever heard of; a bill for the care of a horse and carriage; $70 in banknotes that were decades out of date; a card with the name “Rudolf Fentz” on it; and a letter to the said Mr. Fentz from Philadelphia dated 1876. Police quickly tried to ascertain who this mysterious person was, but nobody at the address on the letter had ever heard of Rudolf Fentz. A telephone book from fifteen years earlier had a Rudolf Fentz, Jr., in it, but Police learned that person had passed away. That person’s widow, however, was found and related the tale that her husband had told, of his father suddenly disappearing without a trace – in 1876. Did a man disappear in 1876 only to reappear 74 years later in Times Square? Well … no. It turns out the whole urban legend had originally been a science fiction short story written in 1951 by Jack Finney (1911-1995) called “I’m Scared.” The story was identical to the tale told, down to the name of the man and even the Police captain who pursued the truth. The tale of Rudolf Fentz became urban legend after Finney’s story was reprinted in the Journal of Borderland Research without his consent and with all notation that it was fiction removed. Read and believed by many fans of the paranormal, it became popular in the 1970s, but it did not actually happen. (Would’ve made a great Twilight Zone episode, though, wouldn’t it?)

Commissioner Wretched

… humans have some odd notions about safety? For example, take the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in the Roman Empire in 79 AD. During the eruption, more than 2,000 citizens of nearby Pompeii ran into the cellars of their homes to wait – they thought in safety – for everything to blow over. They were still there when excavators found them more than 1,800 years later. (Safe, perhaps, but still there.)

… the average American will eat about 35,000 cookies during a lifetime? (A lifetime? I did that in one year.)

… there are more ways to shuffle a standard deck of playing cards than there are atoms on Earth? A computer once determined that there are 80 septensexagintillion (that’s an 80 followed by 67 zeroes) ways to shuffle a standard deck of 52 playing cards. Scientists estimate that there are “only” about 1.33 septendecillion (a 133 followed by 54 zeroes) atoms in the entire Earth. In other words, every time you pick up a deck of cards, that deck is arranged in a way that no other deck ever has been before, or ever will be again, except by pure random chance – unless it’s a brand new deck, with all the cards in order. (Random order … it’s in the cards.)

… less than 5% of the world’s oceans have been explored by humans? That means we have absolutely no idea what kind of life could exist in the 95% we haven’t been to yet. (Which makes me somewhat uneasy.)

Commissioner Wretched

… skipping breakfast causes you to gain weight? Your body is tricked into believing that you will want higher-calorie foods later in the day if you don’t eat breakfast. (So that’s what did it!)

… handshakes originally were methods of proving someone was unarmed? The hand clasp itself proved that you weren’t carrying a weapon, and the shake motion was supposed to dislodge any hidden weapons you might have up your sleeve. (Nothing up my sleeve … presto!)

… the Indiana Jones series of movies were created because of rejection? Director Steven Spielberg (born 1946) wanted to make a James Bond movie, but he was turned down. Spielberg shared the story with his friend, George Lucas (born 1944), and Lucas said he had an idea on how to make a Bond movie – but better. Thus was the character of Indiana Jones born. (“We named the dog Indiana!”)

Now … you know!


I think that sorta was a Twilight Zone episode, albeit tweaked a bit.

“Execution,” aired in 1960



Present and unaccountable, still.
Had to get out of prison first (again). I am not sure what the inmates had for lunch, but the Officers’ Dining Room was served steak (grilled or broiled, your choice) baked potato with trimmings, a choice of vegetables, and assorted other goodies.

Brother is out of the hospital and back at his care facility, doing fine. Thank you for the prayers.

Best wishes and hugs to all the mothers this weekend.

Apparently, at least according to broadway, Alexander Hamilton and many of the other founding fathers were black. Who knew?


People like to argue that point about Jesus in repeated “gotcha” attempts. Jesus was a middle eastern Jew, the odds of him looking like a blond European are pretty slim. Black? Nah.

Russia lost 5 aircraft on Saturday. Thinking that isn’t a coincidence.


Can’t wait for our seagull to come by to shit on us for believing the evil lies of the Durham report.


The liberal line is that that it doesn’t show anything illegal happened. When Trump was the suspected of not doing anything illegal The FBI investigated him for 5 years. The media hounded him relentlessly and an endless slew of people and bots on social media speculated on how much jail time he should get for doing nothing wrong.

With Biden it was just a Thursday.

But the FBI has been officially fixed. They no longer investigate non-crimes. Therefore there is no need to investigate Biden.

They ain’t ‘liberals’ and the illegal part was political interference, violation of civil rights, and suspension of lawful conduct pursuant to an improper investigation.

In short: FBI broke the law.

In totality (with the right, maybe even ‘correct’, lens): treason.

ymmv, iirc, imho, dictated not read, etc

Dark road a’head…


The FBI has always been political. It seemed after Hoover they went through some Reformation. They appeared to be doing a good job through the ’80s and even into the ’90s a little bit. Things got awkward under Janet Reno, But there was some accountability. Things started to get really sketchy again in 2001.

We could blame the Patriot Act but the truth is Congress did very little oversight. Nobody wanted to look like they were getting in the way of anybody trying to lock up terrorists.

The repoliticizing mostly took place under Obama. They basically became the enforcement arm of the SPLC. The SPLC or some other liberal mouthpiece would produce products and they would just adopt them wholesale. Obama also had a lot to do with the promotions at that time.

I’m sure there’s good people over there just like there is everywhere, but they aren’t in charge of anything and they’re just rowing the ship.
