    I must admit, I was not a big fan of Elon Musk and his coal fired car until Dorian explained why it fits in the big “Get The Hell Off This Rock” drive that Musk has.

    On to the guest post, thanks, Dorian:

    Smoking Hot Nerd of the Month: Elon Musk
    Posted on November 27, 2018 by doriangrey1

    American’s don’t just dream, they dream BIG. Hell, nobody dreams as big as American’s. Our dreams are so damned big, they took us where ever other rational logical human being that has ever lived said we could never go. We took our unbelievably huge dreams all the way to the fucking MOON.

    Elon Musk’s dreams were so damned big, they were to large for his native Canada, and he had to come to America to see those dreams prosper. Good for Elon.

    Love him, or hate him, there is no denying that Elon Musk dreams in as large a technicolor as any American ever dreamed of dreaming.

    There are more Elon hater’s than Democrat illegal fraudulent voters. Some, tragically my fellow conservatives, shortsightedly hate Elon because he receives Government subsidizes for his companies. To which I say. Fucking suck it up buttercup. Christopher Columbus received subsidizes from Isabella of Spain to discover North America. The higher the risk, the more subsidizes are required because pants wetters won’t put up their money to advance human knowledge or technology if their is more than a 20 percent chance they will not receive a return on their investment.

    Now… to everyone else who has whatever godforsaken my penis/vagina feels threatened excuse for hating Elon… I say… Go fuck yourself.

    Why do I love and admire Elon? Nope… It 100 percent has nothing to do with his celebrity statues or his wealth. Its because I actually comprehend his dream. More importantly, and this truly is the key. I understand what the obstacles standing in the way of his dream are.

    Unlike some talking assholes… err did I say assholes? Surely I meant to say talking heads, (what? No I couldn’t possible be talking about Neil deAsshole Tyson) Elon doesn’t just talk shit and rake in the big bucks.

    Elon Musk has a dream of one day actually walking himself on the face of the planet Mars. Not settling for sending a robot, but actually taking the insanely huge risk of going there himself.

    Elon is smart and determined. I would sing up yesterday to be in his copilot seat even if the odds of my dying were over 70 percent. Elon is way to smart to hire someone like me as a copilot, just in case any of you were thinking of encouraging him to take me with him.

    Yes. Elon’s dream is so huge it is (for the vast majority of you) incomprehensible. But the part that shatters the entire concept of impossible or even crazy… Is that his dream is not Impossible. Even in his lifetime it is not impossible. Ok… So you are a douchebag who is angry about his Tesla Automobile. Breaking NEW FLASH asswipe. The Internal combustion engine don’t work on MARS. Not enough atmosphere, and the wrong gases to boot.

    Everything he is doing is about creating the technology to get and stay on Mars (at least long enough to return home again). As I said before, suck it up buttercup and quit being a pussy.

    Oh… His sense of humor, my god its glorious…

      @ coldwarrior:

      I think he’s offering a trip to Mars to anyone for a lousy $200k or something?

      That makes little sense to me. A lot of perfectly useless people can come up w/$200k. Surely he means to conduct some kind of vetting. (that would be a great scene for a sci-fi book, where all the selectees get together at a get-to-know-you cocktail party for the first time)

      But yeah, he’s got some batteries to come up with. Didn’t he put a prototype in Australia for some renewable energy thing? I know one of his lead guys left the company to start his own enterprise to focus solely on batteries

      That would be a world-changer. Like electricity.

      Clintons To Play To Hundreds Of Empty Seats On First Date Of Billary Tour

      Former President Bill Clinton and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be speaking to hundreds of empty seats on the first day of their tour.

      The Clintons are scheduled to kick off their speaking tour event, which is called “An Evening With The Clintons,” in Toronto, Canada on Tuesday evening.

      Just hours before the start of the event, which will be held at the Scotiabank Arena, TicketMaster reveals that there are still hundreds of tickets that are available.

      Look at all the blue dots, indicating tickets still available.

      When the Clintons announced their 13-city speak tour, they marketed it as a “one of a kind conversation.”

      “From the American presidency to the halls of the Senate and State Department to one of the United States’ most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections, they provide a unique perspective on the past, and remarkable insight into where we go from here,” the tour’s website reads.

      Not to liberals it doesn’t. You know what they mean when they state that “we need to have a conversation on gun control” is that you need to sit down, shut up, and listen to them lecture you on what they have little, if any knowledge or facts.

      Not a big fan of Musk partially because of who he politically supports. However, I give him lots of credit for this dream and his showmanship. The Starman in Tesla mass simulant for his rocket launch was freakin’ brilliant. That’s the kind of thing that gets the public interested in space flight again.

      I wish I lived on an acreage again with a greenhouse like I did in Iowa. I never did buy a Listeroid single cylinder engine that I dreamed of. Runs on waste cooking oil.

      General numbers for an internal combustion engine are….

      One third of the energy from the fuel is actual real work the engine can do.

      One third is turned into heat that needs removing from the cylinders.

      One third is heat that gets wasted out of the exhaust.

      So in a greenhouse at night you need heat. Engine and heat exchangers in greenhouse, two thirds of “wasted” energy not wasted but used to keep plants nice and warm.

      The one third of the fuel burned that is actually driving the crankshaft load is running a generator which is powering my lights and heating water in my home and I set the dishwasher and washing machine to do their thing during the night.

      100% use of renewable energy.

      ‘waste oil’.

      What kind of oil? In a normal cooking environment, all oil breaks down after x number of uses, which is why you normally can’t reuse it. Also, after one use, there’s usually food debris in there that would need to be removed. How is that done on the scale you would need?

      Yup Musk planted a $100 million battery just outside Adelaide, After South Australia has a majority of Green Socialists. Now that Musk has departed the word comes down that to power the entire SA grid the batteries would last less than 10 minutes at full load.

      Thanks Musk! Another boondoggle.

      You just filter it. If you look outside fast food places at the back there are special dumpsters they put the used oil in. And it is a criminal offence to steal the used oil out of the dumpster!

      No matter how many times the oil has been used and how much crap is in it you can use it in an engine. Filter it, let the water settle out and maybe mix it with 20% diesel.

      Also in a cold climate it will be solid. Even vegetable oil. You have to warm it to use it.

      ( put a bottle of canola in the fridge, it turns solid )

      There are mini oil tankers trundling about NZ collecting waste cooking oil to be processed into Diesel fuel. Works just fine. Fry your chips today and power your truck tomorrow!

      Correct. You can’t use cooking oil as a Diesel substitute in the South Island in all of the snow. Just the winterless north!

      https://www.foodandwine.com/news/why-thieves-are-stealing-cooking-oil

      I didn’t need to steal. I worked in a restaurant for fourteen years…

      According to a report by Bloomberg, the theft of used vegetable oil is up across the United States. But why would thieves want the stuff fast food chains and burger joints have used to deep fry your favorite chicken nuggets, hot wings, or French fries? Because that old oil is worth big bucks. (Who knew?) In fact, some $75 million worth of used grease is stolen each year.

      According to the wire service, grease thieves can build a small fortune selling used oil on the black market, where demand for grease has increased as the country clamors for more renewable fuels, such as biodiesel. Bloomberg reports that 1.4 billion pounds of old oil was turned into biodiesel last year alone. Of course, not all of that was stolen—but a lot was.

      that’s odd. I wonder if it’s the oil itself or the dumpster diving that’s the rationale for that law.

      How do you get the water to ‘settle out’? (I didn’t even know there’s water in there)

      disappointed, but not surprised. He does do things that work (SpaceX comes to mind), but so much of his stuff is just so fucking sloppy/careless. One day, he’s going to get somebody killed and the music is going to stop right quick.

      The discarded oil companies have a contract with the restaurants. It is not “trash”

      The oil is put in a container outside, the oil belongs to the restaurant and when the oil company picks it up they pay the restaurant for it.

      I’m not sure about that. That’s one of the things about the self-centered, which is really what narcissism is, just to an extreme. They believe that any help or other preferences they have received were due them and that they merited such treatment because of who they are and their innate abilities have attracted that kind of support.

      I don’t know what, if anything McConnell can do about this, especially as Flake is gone soon. But if he can do anything, I wouldn’t want to be Jeff Flake.

      Senate panel cancels votes on Trump court picks amid Flake standoff

      Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) announced Wednesday that he is canceling votes on nearly two dozen of President Trump’s judicial nominees that were expected to come up in the Judiciary Committee this week.

      The cancellation of the committee’s Thursday business meeting comes as Senate Republicans are in a standoff with outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has vowed to oppose all court picks until he gets a vote on legislation protecting special counsel Robert Mueller.

      The notification from the Judiciary Committee didn’t specify when, or if, the committee votes on the nominations would be rescheduled. Six circuit court nominees had been expected to get a vote, as well as 15 district court nominees.

      But Grassley warned late Wednesday afternoon that he would likely cancel the meeting unless he could get a deal with Flake that would allow the nominations to move forward.

      Today I went to the Wendy’s place near where I work to get a lunch.

      Been there just twice before, both times in the last month.

      Two times, that is important.

      Nice young woman greeted me at the cash register and said “Hi Chris, what do you want”

      I said “Baked potato with sour cream and chives and a Caesar salad”

      She said ” We do not serve that at the moment because of romaine lettuce thing”

      She recommended the avocado salad which was awesome!

      Point is, a low paid worker in a fast food place recognized me and new my name after just seeing me twice before.

      She knew my name because in Wendy’s they call out when your food is ready by name not a number.

      Oh, and even though we had only met two times before this time she had changed her hair style and I commented on it. She laughed…

      Point of this post?

      Even in a big city sometimes it is like living in a small town.

      An addendum.

      In a fast food restaurant nobody gets tips. So no reason to be nice so they get better tips.

      She is just a great customer service person.

      However, the article notes Roberts and Alito weren’t so sure. I don’t care about Roberts, he’s a useless pussy. But can you find out what Alito said during arguments? The ruling on this is going to be crucial

      I am going to try that.

      Being honest here I sort of have an attraction to a certain type of dark skinned, brown eyed black hair ladies.

      The absolute worst EVER saying goodbye was to Angela as I left South Africa in January 1982.

      Angela was not her real name, but one I could say. She spoke Xhosa, a “click” language. But she also spoke English better than I do.

      I had to leave South Africa, she could not leave South Africa. And the fact we “knew” each other was illegal.

      So now you all know. I am not racist, and 35 years later I still miss her yelling at me in her own language, sounded like a swarm of crickets!

      They were good days…..

      Baja California is in Mexico. Its the name of the peninsula that juts out into the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico. Its also the name of one of Mexico’s “States”. Which comprises about half of the peninsula of Baja California. Oh, and that body of water, is called either the Bay of California, or the Sea of Cortez, both names are technically correct.

      @ eaglesoars:

      Mueller and his merry band of ethically challenged prosecutors have a history of subornation of perjury and the illegal suppression of discoverable Brady material to defendants. That any of these dirtbags have not been stripped of their law licenses is an abomination, especially Andrew Weissman, or as Mark Levin has dubbed him, Weissturd.

      According to Sidney Powell, she and the attorneys for Stevens, the Arthur Andersen defendants and the Merrill Lynch defendants filed complaints with the Office of Professional Ethics of the DOJ and the State Bars of these attorneys. NOTHING was done. Many of them were allowed to “retire” from the government service and got lucrative partnerships with major law firms. The State Bars did nothing.

      Andrew Weissturd should be behind bars. As should Mueller. Subornation of perjury is a crime.

      Deutsche Bank, possibly the most important Bank in the EU, probably stonewalled investigators so arrogantly for so long they got humiliated publicly. The police raided their offices to get hard evidence of money laundering. Zerohedge:

      Update: The fun isn’t over for Deutsche Bank (and its weary shareholders). In fact, it might only be just beginning.

      “Commenting to German newspaper Handelsblatt, the Frankfurt prosecutors office said it is investigating DB’s role in help clients stash their money in offshore tax shelters while helping launder proceeds from illegal activities without informing German regulators. The wrongdoing that is being investigated allegedly began in 2013 and continued through this year. In a sign that the probe could run much deeper than initially believed, prosecutors said that gathering evidence will likely require them to continue searching DB’s offices for a second day on Friday.

      The investigation, which was inspired by revelations contained within the ‘Panama Papers’ leak of client records from offshore law firm Mossack Fonseca, is so detailed that it will require searches to continue for a second day.

      “The investigations relate at least to a period from 2013 to 2018 and have been running since August 2018,” said Nadja Niesen, spokeswoman for the Frankfurt public prosecutor’s office.

      A spokesman for DB said the bank believed it had provided authorities with all of the documents they had requested.

      “We felt that we had provided the authorities with all relevant information about the Panama Papers. Of course, we will cooperate closely with the public prosecutor’s office in Frankfurt am Main, because we too are anxious to clarify all suspicions. In recent years, we have always proven that we fully cooperate with the authorities. And we will continue to do so.

      One outside legal expert quoted by the newspaper said Deutsche’s board had failed to properly ensure that the bank had effective compliance controls in place.

      Michael Hendricks, an attorney and expert in manager liability cases, says he sees the board as an obligation. “It is the foremost task of a board of directors to ensure an effective compliance system. Apparently, this does not work for Deutsche Bank. This is terrifying because the bank is always conspicuous,” says Hendricks.”

      On the morning of November 11, just before 9:30 UT, a mysterious rumble rolled around the world.

      The seismic waves began roughly 15 miles off the shores of Mayotte, a French island sandwiched between Africa and the northern tip of Madagascar. The waves buzzed across Africa, ringing sensors in Zambia, Kenya, and Ethiopia. They traversed vast oceans, humming across Chile, New Zealand, Canada, and even Hawaii nearly 11,000 miles away.

      These waves didn’t just zip by; they rang for more than 20 minutes. And yet, it seems, no human felt them.

      Only one person noticed the odd signal on the U.S. Geological Survey’s real-time seismogram displays. An earthquake enthusiast who uses the handle @matarikipax saw the curious zigzags and posted images of them to Twitter. That small action kicked off another ripple of sorts, as researchers around the world attempted to suss out the source of the waves. Was it a meteor strike? A submarine volcano eruption? An ancient sea monster rising from the deep?

      “I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it,” says Göran Ekström, a seismologist at Columbia University who specializes in unusual earthquakes.

      “It doesn’t mean that, in the end, the cause of them is that exotic,” he notes. Yet many features of the waves are remarkably weird—from their surprisingly monotone, low-frequency “ring” to their global spread. And researchers are still chasing down the geologic conundrum.

      They massive antennae are located just south of Lake Superior and stretch between two states Michigan and Wisconsin. The signals race around the globe with little attenuation as long as the frequency is below 100 Hz. REALLY inefficient but pump enough power into the antennae and they work just fine.

      Diesel engines and why I love them. Also known as compression Ignition engines.

      A petrol/gasoline engine introduces a mix of air into a cylinder then the piston compresses it over seven times then a spark plug ignights the explosive mixture and the piston is driven down producing energy.

      A diesel engine does very much the same, takes in air and compress it to a high temperature then fuel is squirted in and it explodes.

      No electricity or spark plugs.

      yeah, no. Dad had one once. They had to wait for me a few hours one Christmas Eve because my plane was late getting into Pgh. We got 10 miles down the road and – it died. Even tho he’d drained the lines before we started, it still froze. It was really cold, about 50 below (fahrenheit). I ran about a mile up a hill to a Hilton Hotel and they got the shuttle and retrieved my family. Then all the crews from the airlines started coming in because the fuel lines on all the planes froze. This would have been 1982-83. We had two children with us, ages 10 and 4 and the hotel couldn’t let us stay because all their rooms were full. A neighbor drove 50 miles to come get us, another 50 to take us home. That was the only time I ever saw my father actually frightened.

      Nope. No diesel.

      Actually keeping The Shark. Trade in value is $600 so next to worthless.

      4.6 liter engine, in a car….

      LOL I sometimes have fun racing muscle cars on the way to work.

      Shark stays in the family. I need another car that is reliable. Sharky is 2002

      Off topic. In a car with a very big engine and automatic transmission you can change gears up and down using the gas pedal.

      Best car I ever had, love the Shark.

      And, if when you pull away from a stop sign and the “Traction Control Active” warning does not show up, you ain’t trying hard enough

      Jackasses in scheduling put me in 4 days at 9.5 hours this week and the next 2, so to get 40 I have to work 2 hours today

      Still moving, and probably will be through Christmas since we’re mostly using our cars. A couple friends will be over on Sunday to help with a few bigger things like some book shelves and very heavy boxes. Need to hang the TV. And today I get to play plumber and electrician. I’m replacing the stopper in the bathroom and an outlet cover in back.

      There is a small desk in the room that we’ll be using as a library. It’s in its own little alcove, and we are debating if we should pull it out and slide one of the bookshelves in there. But having the desk would add to the value years down the road at resale as a kid’s room.

      Bing and DuckDuckGo don’t seem to be making much of a difference. These little totalitarians need to be taught a very tough lesson.

      EXCLUSIVE: GOOGLE EMPLOYEES DEBATED BURYING CONSERVATIVE MEDIA IN SEARCH

      “This was an election of false equivalencies, and Google, sadly, had a hand in it,” Google engineer Scott Byer wrote in a Nov. 9, 2016, post reviewed by TheDCNF.

      Byer falsely labeled The Daily Caller and Breitbart as “opinion blogs” and urged his coworkers to reduce their visibility in search results.

      “How many times did you see the Election now card with items from opinion blogs (Breitbart, Daily Caller) elevated next to legitimate news organizations? That’s something that can and should be fixed,” Byer wrote.

      “I think we have a responsibility to expose the quality and truthfulness of sources – because not doing so hides real information under loud noises,” he continued. (RELATED: Google Search Labels Republican Women ‘Enablers’)

      “Beyond that, let’s concentrate on teaching critical thinking. A little bit of that would go a long way. Let’s make sure that we reverse things in four years – demographics will be on our side.”

      Some of Byer’s colleagues expressed concern that manipulating search results could backfire and suggested alternative measures.

      One Google engineer, Uri Dekel, identified himself as a Clinton supporter but argued that manipulating search results was the wrong route to take.

      “Thinking that Breitbart, Drudge, etc. are not ‘legitimate news sources’ is contrary to the beliefs of a major portion of our user base is partially what got us to this mess. MSNBC is not more legit than Drudge just because Rachel Maddow may be more educated / less deplorable / closer to our views, than, say Sean Hannity,” Dekel wrote in a reply to Byer.

      “I follow a lot of right wing folks on social networks you could tell something was brewing. We laughed off Drudge’s Instant Polls and all that stuff, but in the end, people go to those sources because they believe that the media doesn’t do it’s job. I’m a Hillary supporter and let’s admit it, the media avoided dealing with the hard questions and issues, which didn’t pay off. By ranking ‘legitimacy’ you’ll just introduce more conspiracy theories,” Dekel added

      You mean like the conspiracy theory that Google conspired to alter search results to rig the next election? THAT conspiracy theory?

      I hope that she is lawyered up. Unless there is a provision in her lease prohibiting firearms this landlord probably has.
      a problem. She is in the middle of finals and can make a case that she is being damaged.

      Leave it to the Intercept. Yes, it’s left-leaning and I disagree w/Greenwald on just about everything, but nobody else does reporting like this.

      GOOGLE SHUT OUT PRIVACY AND SECURITY TEAMS FROM SECRET CHINA PROJECT

      https://theintercept.com/2018/11/29/google-china-censored-search/

      In February 2017, during one of the first group meetings about Dragonfly at Google’s Mountain View headquarters in California, some of those present were left stunned by what they heard. Senior executives disclosed that the search system’s infrastructure would be reliant upon a Chinese partner company with data centers likely in Beijing or Shanghai.

      Locating core parts of the search system on the Chinese mainland meant that people’s search records would be easily accessible to China’s authoritarian government, which has broad surveillance powers that it routinely deploys to target activists, journalists, and political opponents.

      Yonatan Zunger, then a 14-year veteran of Google and one of the leading engineers at the company, was among a small group who had been asked to work on Dragonfly. He was present at some of the early meetings and said he pointed out to executives managing the project that Chinese people could be at risk of interrogation or detention if they were found to have used Google to seek out information banned by the government.

      Scott Beaumont, Google’s head of operations in China and one of the key architects of Dragonfly, did not view Zunger’s concerns as significant enough to merit a change of course, according to four people who worked on the project. Beaumont and other executives then shut out members of the company’s security and privacy team from key meetings about the search engine, the four people said, and tried to sideline a privacy review of the plan that sought to address potential human rights abuses.

      And if you think these people wouldn’t let the Chinese gov’t into Google, think again. You want to do business in China, you turn over the goods. They have no problem helping to rig the 2020 elections, they wouldn’t turn a hair about this.

      there is no such provision. She even agreed to let the cops examine her weapons to insure she was in compliance w/all the laws. The landlord’s excuse is that it’s easier to replace one tenant than it is 6.

      It is his private property, but I don’t know what the landlord/tenant laws in Mass. are. In Virginia, I could throw out a tenant for blinking at me wrong. Hubby, who had a condo in D.C., practically had to call out the National Guard over non-payment.

      On Hannity last night Geraldo comes completely off the rails in a segment with Dan Bongino.
      How long will FNC tolerate the incivility of this goof?
      It drives me nuts when Geraldo equates himself with the troops because he has done some reporting.
      Not even close, when the shit hit the fan Geraldo was able to take cover while the troops had to engage.

      Good polint, it depends on MA law. But it does seem like at the least she has a cause of action for damages.
      She is in finals. Moving is disruptive and in finals?

      she has a case for damages against her ROOM MATES. They claim to feel unsafe w/guns in the house. BUT

      1. Before they knew there were guns, did they feel unsafe?

      2. The knowledge of the guns is a condition they inflicted on themselves. As they had to toss her room to find them, obviously they were not on display, therefore their contention that they could be stolen during a break-in is a supposition after the fact of the condition her roommates created, not her.

      3. If I were her lawyer, I’d make a case for political discrimination based on the MAGA hat and prejudice based on the fact she is from Alabama. Probably wouldn’t win, but their names would be so dragged thru the mud….

      @ eaglesoars:
      Assuming your state law has no such prohibition, landlord-tenant law requires landlords/property managers put a provision in each tenants’ lease that clearly states that no firearms are allowed on the property. Without this language in the lease, if a tenant’s guns are held legally, a landlord has little recourse.Feb 2, 2016

      Unless MA has a restrictive law, this landlord has a problem.
      My guess is that if MA had that the landlord would have cited it.
      As far as the room mates, they absolutely violated her privacy. If they move out they would be violating their
      lease and that should be who the landlord goes to for relief. Unless I am really missing something.

      Ah. I bet that’s why her roommates insisted the LEOs check out her weapons for compliance.

      So, I suspect that the roomies didn’t just have this little legal tidbit at the ready. Either they did some research or got a legal beagle involved.

      I’d drive up there and run them all over with my car if she wants. No skid marks, either.

      Have to go get dinner.

      Former Justice Department Employee Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Deceive U.S. Banks about Millions of Dollars in Foreign Lobbying Funds

      In order to conceal the identity of the foreign principal behind the lobbying campaign, Higginbotham admitted to conspiring to make false statements to financial institutions in the United States concerning the source and purpose of the funds. Higginbotham also admitted to working on various fake loan and consulting documents in order to deceive banks and other regulators about the true source and purpose of the money
