    Ho..Ho..Ho.. right back at ya.

    Christmas Eve here down under already. Getting dark and the reindeer are getting stroppy to get underway. Santa may need to remove the bottom plug out of the floor of the sleight however. Absolutely ‘pissing down with rain here.

    It’s looking like it’s going to be a wet one down here tomorrow!

    Merry Christmas to all of the denizens in this place.

    Have a Happy and Holy Christmas with you and yours.

    Wanted to watch a ‘Christmas’ movie. Decided on Love Actually (Netflix)

    It is a COMPLETELY different movie from the one that was released originally. I’m 15 mins in and there is NO scene I have seen before. Maybe this is a ‘director’s cut’?

    Does anyone give a monkey’s butt about Harvard any more?

    I have heard from a source that is reliable but a step or two removed from the situation that the
    @Harvard
    Corporation has asked President Gay to resign and she has refused.

    Gay has apparently said that if she is fired, she will sue. Gay has retained her own counsel.

    I can’t 100% confirm the above is true, but if it is, I am sure the Board is concerned about what may emerge in legal discovery in the event of litigation.

    At this point, however, what choice does the Board have?

    If the Board makes an inappropriate deal on severance or gives Gay a guaranteed position at Harvard, it will look like a payoff to keep her quiet. I can’t see how she stays at Harvard in any capacity.

    President Gay’s performance and her academic record issues provide plenty of cause for termination without compensation.

    But at every step so far, the Board has made the wrong call and dug a deeper hole for themselves and Harvard.

    As we all know, the best time to start making good decisions is now.

    The sooner Gay is gone, the sooner repairing the damage can begin.

    Lots of BBQ going on here tonight in the apartment complex. It seems the major flavouring ingredient is lighter fluid!

    Now I know what it is like to live in Galveston.

    For the un-educated here Galveston TX is where there are a lot of oil refineries and it smells of BBQ lighter fluid 24/7/365

    Try studying metiorlogigally stuff and prevailing wind directions and take a look at a map and understand that in this area for most of the time the wind is coming from the north west because of the gulf stream and the coriolosis effect.

    Deerpark is located to the north west of Galveston. If someone even farts in Deerpark then Galveston smells it.

    So. I will tell my Christmas story again. I was single, living in D.C. and had to get back to Pennsylvania for Christmas on Christmas Eve Day. Weather was appalling. Allegheny Airlines was still in business and everybody called it Agony Airlines.

    Managed to get a flight on a puddle jumper, the last seat in the back. We landed in Pgh but the plane had to wait for a gate. The flight crew told us it was ok go get up and stretch, it would be awhile. The gentleman who was seated in front of me and I got to talking. He said it reminded him of his time in Germany during the war. Well, I started telling him some of my father’s stories and he’s telling me his and I’m thinking “Oh good lord, this is a friend of Dad’s his voice is SO familiar and I know that face and I know I’ve met him and if I can’t come up with his name my father is going to have my head on a plate cuz he’s gonna hear about it someday”. He was utterly divine.

    Then we got a gate and as we all got off, I was last off the plane and he was just in front of me. The flight crew was all lined up. BIG SMILES!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS MR STEWART!!!

    And that’s how I met Jimmy Stewart and didn’t even know it.

    Here ya go.

    There’s a lot of subtext in that film that most people don’t realize; for instance, most of the names are puns or allusions. Mr. Gower is the name of the druggist George Bailey works for; “gow” was 1930s/’40s slang for opiates or narcotics. Junkies are frequently referred to in detective stories of the period as being “gowed up.”

    The building and loan is run by the Bailey family. In law, a “bailee” is someone who takes charge of another’s property, often for little or no charge. “Peter” means “rock,” and Peter Bailey, George’s father is the rock on which the building and loan rests. “Let George do it,” meaning “Let someone else take care of it,” was a catchphrase through the first half of the 20th century; it derives from the habit of generically referring to, or addressing, (black) Pullman porters as “George.” “George Bailey” is the gratuitous bailee that everyone else in town lets take care of business while they pursue their own interests.

    The angel “Clarence,” of course, provides clarity to George.

    Modern reconstruction of world’s first modern human looked like. It is estimated to be 160,000 years old and from Africa. Displayed in Moesgaard Museum, Denmark.

    Beginning with the common ancestor which humans share with anthropoids, the branch of human primates started also in Africa, probably 6 to 8 million years ago and reach up to modern man (who arose probably around 150,000 to 200,000 years ago and then spread to the rest of the world). They were called Hominids, and are included in the superfamily of all apes, the Hominoidea, the members of which are called hominoids.

    Man’s evolutionary tree is not a single, continuous line along time, as many people think. Scientists have evidence that there were many “dead end” branches, with hominid species who died out without leaving descendants. It is very difficult to determine our direct evolutionary line, and there are still several missing links, not to mention that sometimes there is discordance among scientists about what constitutes the best guess.

    However, we know that our evolutionary line has had two main moments: the first and most ancient one was that of African hominids, which encompasses the Australopithecus genre. The second and most recent one is the Homo genre, including the extinct species which were almost surely our direct ancestors: Homo habilis and Homo erectus. They inhabited Africa earlier than 2 to 2.5 million years ago and their remains have been discovered in the Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania and in Lake Turkana, in Kenya. Homo habilis, in accordance to its name, was the first species to manufacture tools and use fire.

    Homo erectus was the first human to spread out of Africa to the world, including Europe, Middle East and Asia. This species became extinct in all locations except Africa, where it developed into the so-called archaic Homo sapiens (there is still a clear a missing link from H. erectus to H. sapiens). Therefore, Southern Africa seems to be the “cradle of humanity”.

    Ancient Homo sapiens’ evolution was bolstered by the genetic isolation caused by deserts and mountains in that part of the continent. This species later spread out again to Africa, Europe, Asia, 200,000 and 100,000 years ago), where it evolved into Homo sapiens neanderthalensis (the Neanderthal man, an adaptation to cold environments, and which is not considered a direct ascendant to modern man, but rather a closely related species ), and modern Homo sapiens sapiens, an adaptation to the warm environment of Africa.

    Scientists have recently announced the probable discovery of a common ancestor of both Neanderthals and modern man, named as Homo antecessor. It lived 800,000 years ago, in what is now Spain. Ultimately, Neanderthals succumbed 30,000 years ago, probably due to competition with Homo sapiens sapiens, or by interbreeding with it, or both.

    The so-called “Out of Africa” model has also been supported by evidence from molecular biology. Studies of the mitochondrial DNA suggest that all modern humans originated from a small population liviing in Southern Africa. Since mitochondrial DNA only pass along feminine lines, this ancestor of ours has been nicknamed the “African Eve”.

    Interesting educational and instructional fact about aerodynamics and pollutants and wind direction that Calo may be interested in.

    This afternoon I had my door wedged open with a container of laundry detergent so the cats could get in and out.

    Gain 64oz of some smelly flowery Spring stuff but that is not relevant to the story.

    Anyway a neighbor up wind of me decided to do some spray painting of something that needed painting.

    Due to the wind direction and atmospheric conditions no paint actually got in my apartment but the propellent used in that formulation of spray paint did.

    Kitchen still stinks of over ripe bananas, a banana is something that my kitchen has not seen for years.

    @ Bunk Five Hawks X:
    Didn’t know this.

    Smothers was born Feb. 2, 1937 in New York City, and his brother Dick was born a year later. The pair endured a difficult childhood: Their father, an Army Major, was taken prisoner in the Philippines during World War II and survived the Bataan death march, only to die from injuries in 1945 after American forces accidentally bombed the prison ship transporting him and others to Japan. The Smothers’ mothers re-married multiple times and battled alcoholism.

    Mr Bunk worked it out. US eggs are washed with harsh chemicals to remove any possibility of salmonella on them before they are offered for sale.

    However this washing removes the outer coating of the egg called the cuticle. An egg shell is porous. Removing the protective outer coating allows bacteria to pass through the shell and cause the interior of the egg to go bad. Hence the need to refrigerate a washed egg.

    An unwashed egg may have bacteria on the surface of it but the bacteria cannot get through the cuticle and shell.

    So no need to refrigerate it as the contents are safe in their own shrink wrapped sterile packaging.

    However both unwashed and washed eggs, refrigerated or not degrade with time.

    Anyway I prefer mine scrambled…..

    Well the egg conversation killed this place.

    I am really happy I did not start a conversation about military people killed during wars and even though they were the enemy they were buried respectfully and memorials to their passing and sacrifice were erected and respected.

    This removal of Confederate statues of generals etc I kind of understand but the removal of the memorial in Arlington is crossing the line in my opinion.

    In England there are several places where German Military are buried. With respect and the places are maintained and tendered with care.

    Not every German aircrew was a nazi, not every confederate soldier had slaves.

    Most of the South was dirt poor. A family was wealthy if they owned a mule.
    About 10% of the population could even afford a slave, and one with a skill was worth a lot more, the equivalent of a luxury car in today’s dollars. You still had to feed, house and clothe him, and treat medical problems.

Wools wear baggy jeans an footy shirts wich just dont go an big sketcher trainers with big chunky light up heals on the bottom also last years fashion coats with there hair gelled bak so it wont move out of place for two centurys an have light blue eyeshadow on with big hop earings an two dangly peaces of hair down the side of their face an not forgetting the famous “hoodies” wich luk an absoloute show an jus luk scruffy so all u wools can f** off hu skit scousers an am sure thereare sum wools hu are nice in fact i no there are wools hu r nice but scousers are nice too so dont f**ing forget it!!!nobs

    Cats know about life threatening cold temperatures. I just got the tape measure to check.

    Normal rules are at least three feet separation on the bed or there is fights.

    Current separation is 21 inches. I have seen this phenomenon before, the colder it gets then the closer the cats become. Once below about 40F there is just one 55 pound pile of cat in the middle of the bed.

    60 claws, fucking lot of teeth and the bed is theirs. Couch time for me tonight.

    https://jewishstandard.timesofisrael.com/fidf-delivers-10-1-million-of-essential-clothing-to-israels-soldiers/

    The “Winter Clothing Operation” — a monumental five-week initiative organized by Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) and concluded Dec. 17 — provided 150 tons of essential winter clothing and gear, totaling $10,128,940, to IDF soldiers on the front lines fighting to restore peace and security in Israel following the barbaric Hamas attacks on October 7.

    The massive effort involved the purchase of 2,647,013 items and their delivery to Israel on two chartered 747s on November 22 and December 4, along with cargo flights containing 103,764 items, and El Al flights carrying 429,836 items.

    No excuse for being cold if you are fighting at home. The 100th Bn 442 Regt. guys came visiting to NZ one late April when it can be either glorious or terrible depending on the winter gods. Some ‘gold bar Lt. looked up the season and it said mid autumn (AKA Fall) so the battalion packed for warm to mildly cool. It snowed on ‘Wai-beria’ (Siberia of the south) Waiouru Army Training Area at 2500 above sea level flat high desert on day #2. Kiwis raided the hospital and carried off white sheets to wear as camouflage over their kit. Yanks were forbidden to wear ‘foreign’ uniform clothing so they were all issued with woolies to wear ‘under’ their US Army kit. Then everything froze and the Kiwis gave the Yanks’ all of the stores of wooly gloves and balaclavas. Then a Kiwi general decided to issue all Kiwis with gloves. I got issued with a pair of leather welding gloves! Amazing! 🙂 Hey they were gloves!

    Mt. Ruepehu ski season had an early opening and we froze our arses off living in holes in the ground covered in snow in the middle of a 2500′ Above Sea Level DESERT. They called off the ‘war’ when the windchill reached 15 below freezing celsius and the yanks had 30% NODUF casualties from exposure. The island boys from Hawaii were really suffering. Gathered a Brigade + into wool sheds and parked diesel blow heaters around the sheds, stuffed hay bales into gaps to keep the heat in and all defrosted. The US 25th Div guys from Hawaii thought that they had arrived in a ‘cold hell’ and it wasn’t much of an exaggeration to agree with them. Meanwhile the skiers arrived on Mt. Ruepehu in droves and were having a great time skiing on the downwind slopes of the mountain that towered over the Army Training Area.

    Then right on cueI poked my head out of my tent alongside my hole and wondered what in hell was artillery firing live rounds in this crappy weather? Turned out that Mt. Ngarahoehoe also towering above the cold high desert decided to erupt. Fortunately there was a howling SW wind blowing horizontal snow but also blew the ash and rocks away from where we were attempting to sleep.

    Ahhh welcome to the delights of Wai-beria in the changeable Autumn!

    Progresso soup is cheaper and equally nasty if it has potatoes or meat in it. The tomato basil one is good. Needs crusty french bread with real butter as an accompaniment.

    Well the last Walmart delivery I got I needed something to take it over the $35 free delivery threshold so I got a couple of cans of Progresso Vegetable Classics, Vegetarian Vegetable with Barley Canned Soup, 19 oz.

    It is really good.

    I know 54F aint really cold and the 35F we had last night is not life threatening.

    Point is, and was, as you probably know for six months of the year here it is over 100F with a low of 80F if we are lucky.

    We have maybe two months of cool weather and at the moment everyone is walking around dressed in 5 layers of clothes and a hoodie and we all look like Wookies from a Star Wars film set LOL

    If I could go back in time and re-live my life I would chose to live in a place where the winters were mild and the summers warm but not stupidly hot.

    Barnsley is where I would like to be.

    Barnsley (/ˈbɑːrnzli/) is a market town in South Yorkshire, England. It is the main settlement of the Metropolitan Borough of Barnsley and the fourth largest settlement in South Yorkshire. The town’s population was 96,888 in 2021,[1] while the wider borough had a population of 244,600 in the 2021 census.[2]

    Historically in the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is located between the cities of Sheffield, Manchester, Doncaster, Wakefield and Leeds; the larger towns of Rotherham and Huddersfield are nearby. Barnsley’s former industries include linen, coal mining, glass making and textiles. Barnsley’s culture is rooted in its industrial heritage and it has a tradition of brass bands, originally created as social clubs by its mining communities.

    This is an interesting article on how to “dress around” your weapon. It’s not much of a concern here in TN where everyone just assumes everyone is armed (because we are). In Virginia, it was a bit more of an issue because altho the law wasn’t much different, the culture was. I stopped at the grocery store on my way home from the range, weapon in a shoulder holster and the edge of the photogs vest I was wearing caught on the shopping cart while I was unloading at checkout. The Mom w/infant in front of me pitched a fit. Blah blah blah.

    Just wondering how anyone would feel if you were a 18 year old college student and you were living in a four bedroom house where there was a little metal box nailed to the side of the door in every door way.

    The little metal box is a warning to never rent a house that has them

    Anyway, imagine you lived in a house and had a lease for a year, but the owner decided they wanted you out so they could sell it.

    Four bedrooms, that is about eight people.

    Instead of giving us notice that the lease would not be renewed they informed the police that drugs were on the premises.

    The door broken down at 6am and many police entering and two doggies searching the place and finding nothing made us all feel unsafe.

    We were 1980s swatted.

    Yes we knew that this shit would not end so we all moved out. Slept on friends floors, work rest rooms.

    That is the jew way. They did it in 1980 in England, they do it in 2023 West Bank.

    It messes with my sense of time. Something that happened yesterday can seem like last week and vice versa. Took about a day to get past the week of Christmas carols. At least I don’t have the visual misinterpretations like I did at first. Those were interesting. We had a 3-foot long yam on our patio table and a 3-inch long duck on the front stoop. The subliminal brain kept guessing wrong.

    AI Detects Unusual Signal Hidden in a Famous Raphael Masterpiece

    Artificial intelligence (AI) can be trained to see details in images that escape the human eye. Now an AI neural network has identified something unusual about a face in a Raphael painting: it wasn’t actually painted by Raphael.

    The face in question belongs to St Joseph, seen in the top left of the painting known as the Madonna della Rosa (or Madonna of the Rose).

    Scholars have in fact long debated whether or not the painting is a Raphael original. While it requires diverse evidence to conclude an artwork’s provenance, a new method of analysis based on an AI algorithm has sided with those who think at least some of the strokes were at the hand of another artist.

    Researchers from the UK and US developed a custom analysis algorithm based on the works that we know are the result of the Italian master’s brushwork.

    On Thursday, November 30th, Siaka Massaquoi and his pregnant wife, Charlotte, were headed home on a flight returning from the The Daily Wire’s Lady Ballers movie premier in Nashville, Tennessee. Upon their arrival, Siaka was separated from his wife and abruptly arrested by the FBI. At the time, Charlotte was told the charges had to do with January 6th; however, she was not presented with any arrest warrant. Siaka was taken to Monterey Park Jail where he stayed overnight and was told that he was being charged for four misdemeanors pertaining to his presence outside of the Capital Building in Washington, D.C. on January 6th.

    Given the value of an Alpaca’s fleece Purevans should wrap alpacas in mohair shawls.
