Many bloviating self-congratulatory celebrities and B-list politicians are promulgating doomsday “This is the new normal” online commencement speeches, but Tim Conway, Jr. does it right.

Yep. Nailed it.

Oh, and if you’ve never heard Conway’s show, you’re missing out.
The theme song alone is worth it.

    25 | May 23, 2020 9:20 pm

    Pharmacodynamics

    Ivermectin and other avermectins (insecticides most frequently used in home-use ant baits) are macrocyclic lactones derived from the bacterium Streptomyces avermitilis. Ivermectin kills by interfering with nervous system and muscle function, in particular by enhancing inhibitory neurotransmission.

    The drug binds to glutamate-gated chloride channels (GluCls) in the membranes of invertebrate nerve and muscle cells, causing increased permeability to chloride ions, resulting in cellular hyper-polarization, followed by paralysis and death.[1][53] GluCls are invertebrate-specific members of the Cys-loop family of ligand-gated ion channels present in neurons and myocytes.

    The mosque in my neighborhood is definitely spreading Wahhabist hatred; it’s financed wholly by the Saudis and I believe it’s the largest mosque in Los Angeles.
    Read what I wrote in April 2001, when I had a very disquieting experience at this mosque, a sort of a omen of what was to come later that year:

    OK — I spoke with a friend who has extensive building experience in Culver City and he said, “No way.” But when I pointed out that the mosque is funded by Saudi Arabia, he said, “Hmm.”
    Any permits would be on file at the Culver City Hall.

    when i was in high school, for a while i collected “bus plunge” stories. (does that make me weird?) the honolulu star bulletin loved to print these little filler nuggets, buried deep inside the paper. usually just a 3-inch column with a headline like “Bus Plunge Kills 33 in Peru.” what they all had in common was the oddly alliterative/horrifying term “bus plunge”; it summoned up images of a greyhound bus full of screaming passengers careening at high speed over a sheer cliff, with rocks and trees waiting below…
    ahem. i don’t know why, but our second link to a story about self immolation brought up that memory.

    @ coldwarrior:
    Heh. Found it.

    4/16/2001: modern life

    i had a very strange, very creepy experience yesterday that i’ve been wondering how to write about. instead of wondering any more, i think i’ll just write.

    in culver city, there’s an islamic mosque on Washington Boulevard, that was built under protest from local homeowners. i moved into the area after all this protest; the mosque was just being opened at the time. it’s actually a very beautiful marble building, with elaborate inscriptions that i believe are excerpts from the Koran. (sidenote: there’s a requirement in CC that any public building must include some works of art. the builders of the mosque argued successfully that their inscriptions satisfied the requirement.)

    some of the people who visit this mosque, however, have the annoying and dangerous habit of hanging out in the street that passes by, paying no attention to the traffic. when i drive past there i use extra care, because more than once there have been people in the road unexpectedly, sometimes in the dark of night.

    so yesterday afternoon i turned left from Washington Blvd and started driving up the street, when suddenly a man (mid-20s, mid-eastern) came walking very rapidly (almost running) out of the mosque driveway into the street without looking. i started to hit the brakes when he finally noticed me and stopped. it would have been very close if he hadn’t looked up; i don’t know if i could have stopped in time to avoid hitting him.

    so i drove on past. yes, it shook me up a little.

    but not as much as looking into the rearview mirror and seeing this guy standing in a policeman’s crouch, pantomiming firing a gun at me. in a way that suggested he had done it before. two-handed, with a simulated recoil. and then continuing across the street with an air of total unconcern for the person he had just fantasized about murdering.

    Oh how scary! I have goosebumps just thinking about it.

    I knew there was a reason why I have never allowed my son to have any type of toy gun or anything that ever resembled while growing up. I have even discouraged him to act/play like that. Pantomiming or not, there is something to be said about what you experienced and relieved you are here to write about it.
    posted by Catherine @ 4/17/2001 10:07AM PST

    and what’s even creepier — the guy was coming out of what is supposed to be a house of worship. so he switched from worship mode to murder mode in the blink of an eye.

    it makes me wonder what’s going on inside that place…

    I found his blog after he was interviewed by Tammy Bruce. I was drawn by the fact he sounded like a 9/11 conservative, much like Evan Sayett. Yeah, that lasted until the election of 2008 when he went off the deep end.

    This story from Michigan is horrific. But isn’t as it seems. At first it appeared the young thug is a healthcare worker abusing the nursing home residents. But in reality he is a COVID victim/patient. Yes! Shipped there presumably to convalesce himself. So someone in Michigan health services is sending COVID patients to nursing homes as recently has 2 or 3 weeks ago! Long after it was known those patients are most vulnerable. And according to the young man’s father the young man is not truly vicious. But does have mental health issues. Another reason he should not have been dumped into an elderly, vulnerable population with apparently insufficient supervision.

    I’m not going to state the obvious here. Soros and crap headed Stanford leftist Pamela Karlan providing ostensibly fair oversight??? But I have to say I feel somewhat torn about what the investment guy/gals call the FANGs (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google). I invest heavily in tech. Specifically a tech stock-centric mutual fund and these are all top holdings along with Microsoft, Apple, Intel etc.. The last several years I’ve actually made more money in that fund than I earned at my job (before they canned me….er eliminated my position at the vaunted investment firm starts with F, ends in Y.) Disclaimer: I was not in a financial advisor role for them and am not one. I’m a gorilla who likes bananas and titties. Amazon and Google in particular are VERY GOOD investments. I was skeptical about Facebook but they seem to be doing something right too. But all of their top execs are these unabashed leftist pinheads. My dad left me Google stock when he died in 2012. I made a frickin’ killing in that thing and used it to pay off my daughters college (we put twins through private Catholic school and college concurrently – aka financial resistance training). That one in particular is very diversified, just within Google/Alphabet. And I don’t do day trading shit. I’d lose my ass. I’m purely a long term investor and making a common sense trend driven bet that (like soap, deoderant, TP and Ketchup) we’re always going to be needing, producing, utilizing, innovating and wanting to buy technology. I don’t think COVID will change that. Some people like to dabble in say, the Financials (banks). But they can make some seriously idiotic decisions and get heavily leveraged and even lose their asses making cutesy derivative bets with other people’s money. Techs appear more prudent in my opinion. So I feel they are stewarding and developing their value intelligently and using their massive cash holdings to position themselves for the coming trends (AI, automation, robotics, data storage and crunching, powerful computation, lasers, molecular printing, etc..). These various technologies are at the center of everything we buy and how we buy it. Entertainment, transportation, communication, shopping, medicine, work efficiency, security. Tech is becoming like water. We use it, we need it, we don’t always notice it and take it for granted. But we’d die without it. So why are all the visionary heads of these successful companies such leftist pinheads? Are they merely sucking up to their workforce and future customers? Are they making a calculated bet that it’s better to not have say, all of Lady Gaga’s or Katy Perry’s fans pissed and boycotting you just because you said you think Trump is “business friendly”? That happened to an exec at Columbia sportswear and one of their top paid endorsers (Stephan Curry) tried to get the guy fired. That’s probably it. And partially a generational thing. They’re all pretty young and peer approval is powerful even to them. It’s very frustrating and perplexing.

    No it isn’t. They’re horrible human beings. Very few REALLY successful business people are also successful at the human thing because what’s required to be successful at that level is a form of autism that leaves no time to develop any other kind of intelligence.

    I’ve seen it in science, too. The problem comes when they develop the delusion that their high IQ works in all areas of social endeavor. It doesn’t, obviously. Bill and Melinda Gates have really done marvelous work in the health/poverty field. But humility isn’t their strong suit and if it were, they wouldn’t have got to where they are.

    Their global-centric world view is their mode of atonement. Harry and Meghan can take 4 private plane trips in 11 days, but Elton John planted 4 trees in Ghana in their name, so shut up. If they’re seen as people who ‘care’, it won’t be their heads on pikes when the revolution comes. And as they’re absolutely, positively certain it WILL come, please don’t notice that they are trying to leverage the gears, Bill will be releasing v12.0 in beta in a couple weeks, just hang on.

    It will work this time, Robespierre just should have been a little more patient.

    “They are going to bring it back here; it’s a grave concern,” said Alderwoman Susan Sadlowski Garza of the city’s 10th Ward, which borders Indiana.

    Garza said she recently drove over the state line and saw crowds gathered outside restaurants. No one was wearing a mask, she said, and she felt helpless and upset.

    Memorial Day (aka Remembrance Day) is tomorrow (aka Monday).

    Importantly, we detected SARS-CoV-2−reactive CD4+ T cells in ~40-60% of unexposed individuals, suggesting cross-reactive T cell recognition between circulating ‘common cold’ coronaviruses and SARS-CoV-2.

    I don’t know if it’s my fading memory of what but I seem to remember them trying this a few years back too with some other “event”. I’m almost positive this isn’t the first time.

    Well, I’m off to my son’s “graduation”. Freaking joke. What little graduation he’s allowed he only got because of a full on revolt because of the parents. The school board and administrators suddenly remembered their jobs were reliant on the parents/voters remaining happy. Suddenly the “virtual graduation” was cancelled and they were allowed an in person graduation, though with ridiculous stipulations.

    its also known as ‘money walking’

    Loved this comment in the comments section:

    The quoted Illinois officials expressed grave concern about people going into neighboring states and bringing the virus back to Illinois. But Illinois is the state with the greater virus problem – 3rd most cases in the US behind NY and NJ, notwithstanding their draconian lock down policies. If states like Missouri and Iowa have never locked down and still managed to have lower rates of infection, maybe Illinois should look for a more nuanced approach rather than complaining that its neighbors should be more strict like Illinois.

    Substitute “guns” for “virus”. Illinois is nothing if not consistent.

    I’m going to have to find Hawley’s speech. I don’t understand this yet but it sounds interesting.

    Hawley’s most interesting idea, which got much less space in his speech, isn’t obviously about trade at all. In a brief line near the end, he called for an international deal to limit destabilizing international investment flows.
    .
    .
    After years in which it championed greater financial openness, the International Monetary Fund has come around to the idea that “capital flow- management measures” are acceptable. Right now, however, these limits are administered unilaterally by governments, not negotiated as part of a globally agreed framework. Last year, Hawley and Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D., Wis.) introduced bipartisan legislation to unilaterally reduce and offset unwanted inflows into the U.S. But a global agreement would be even better, potentially allowing the world to preserve the main benefits of cross-border investing without the costs.

    Two things: Apparent intrusion into Japanese air space by China

    Yesterday, fighters of Southwestern Air Defense Force and so on scrambled to cope with suspicious aircrafts heading to Japan’s airspace above the East China Sea. MOD/SDF continues to take all initiatives to engage in airspace antiintrusion measures.

    And China ‘fortifying positions’ INSIDE India?

    “Chinese had managed to come well inside the Indian territory and are also conducting aggressive patrols with motor boats in the Pangong lake,” Indian broadcaster NDTV reported. “The Chinese troops crossed 3 km into what India perceives to be its territory South East of the Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh,” Indian news website The Print confirmed

    I says to her, I says, I can’t give you the twelve inches. However, I can give you the six inches, twice. And again later, if you make me a snack and let me have a nap. I can also do other things, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

    And they never were. Disappointed, I mean. In fact, I never heard anything but rave reviews. If they told their girlfriends something else later, well, whatever. Those same girls often came onto me, later.

    Years ago, when it was first happening, I tried to get my wife into “Breaking Bad.” I was loving the first season, but the first episode she saw was the one where they had the local drug-slinger in the basement, horse-collared to the stanchion with a bike-lock, and then hilarity ensues. She was on a firm mission to avoid movies and shows with bondage or torture scenes, and this certainly qualified. She never watched again, while I kept trying to bring her back in, saying that was a one-time event that was totally-eclipsed by the drama and human conflict of the rest of it. Nope, she said.

    Now, having gotten all into “Better Call Saul” and a bunch of other stuff since those days, I finally got her to try BB again, and now she loves it to death. We’re halfway through season three, and I have to drag her away from the TV, kicking and screaming for more, more, more! Like the Billy Idol song.

    For myself, I am amazed anew at the quality of the show, which has now been translated into HD digital, like they did with “The Wire,” only to even better effect. It’s incredible. It’s even better, the second time through, all these years later. The “Better Call Saul”-stuff added into the experience only makes the original story better, providing background and motive for many characters.

    One thing I had forgotten, was how much I had jumped onto the “Hate Skyler”-bandwagon, which was so justified, but also, in retrospect, so unfair to the character and the actress who played her. I remembered tonight that she had written a piece in defense of the character for the NYT, which wasn’t all that great, and relied on predictable anti-man stuff, but the mere fact that it was deemed necessary at the time to respond to the hate directed at her said a lot. It’s a fictional character, you idiots. Don’t kill the actress delivering the lines.

    I need just a little more than that, at this point, but not as much as I used to. Once or twice a week, is great. The “fall asleep and snore”-part, that’s been there since my mid-twenties. It could be twelve o’clock high, and the mizzen-mast is still subsiding, but the peaceful snores of the happy, satisfied ape are still resounding through the domicile.

    I spent some glorious days as a kid on the beach in Hanford Bay, on Lake Erie. We didn’t give a damn about the pollution that was still an issue then, but I’m glad they’ve improved conditions a lot since then. My cousin from Buffalo still owns the family cottage on the beach there, and he says they no longer have the smelly fish-kills and open-sewers running into the lake, that we used to take for granted. It’s just a sweet little beach. I hope to get back there someday, with him and his rich-ass wife, whose family owns a diamond mine in Africa. No, really. She’s the heiress to a diamond-mine, and they supply diamonds to about a third of the state of New York. You should see his frickin’ house. 😆

    Is anything OK? Because I can’t find the new thread. And I’m feeling the need to say something incredibly pointless and obvious.

    I actually don’t agree with this. Biden is an idiot and a crook and always has been. But he’s also always been very physically fit. Some people just have that. I don’t. But I recognize it when I see it. He’s looked fine physically through all this. He’s large and muscular. That hasn’t changed and isn’t the issue.
