Overheard in passing

Statesmanship is more difficult that politics. Politics is the art of getting along with people. Statesmanship is the art of getting along with politicians.    (more…)

Dour Finnish redneck black humor

December 14th, 2012 by Vader

And people think that I’m disturbed.

Warning: Not for the fainthearted. It’s not exactly “It’s A Wonderful Life.”

Go Granny!

August 04th, 2012 by Bookslinger

“Fear no man regardless of his size… pull me, and I will equalize.” (A common slogan in regards to Samuel Colt’s famous line: “God made them all, Colt made them equal.”)

THIS is why law-abiding citizens must remain armed.

One diminuitive 65 year-old female jewelry store owner with a handgun, versus five robbers, two of whom are armed. Watch the thugs run, fall down, and forget which way the door opens.

Even armed thieves prefer unarmed victims.

July 18th, 2012 by Bookslinger

In Florida recently: two armed bad guys attempt to rob a group of unarmed store patrons, and one armed good-guy. The bad guys had bigger guns, or so it appears in the video.

Yet when 71-year-old armed man, who refused to be a victim, started firing back, the bad guys were literally falling over each other to get out.

One can’t tell from the video how many of the senior citizen’s shots hit their target.

Dear Mr-71-year-old-armed-law-abiding-citizen, if you are reading this, please buy a bigger gun, and practice more. And God bless.

Maybe we can take up a collection, and send him some money for practice ammo and range time.

My respect for Planned Parenthood would be greater if….

May 19th, 2012 by Bookslinger

they had offered this man a free vasectomy years ago. (Maybe they did, the article doesn’t say.)

Before we put the entire blame on the man, know that he did have 11 female accomplices in this matter.

Alternate titles:

1. Modern day polygamy…. more or less.

2. When you reward something, such as illegitmacy, you get more of it. See Jane Galt.

Insidious Google Captchas

May 14th, 2012 by Bookslinger

Did you notice when “Captchas”, the distorted letters and numbers that you need to interpret and type in before continuing some sort of online process, changed a while back?

They’ve changed again.

I’m talking about Google-generated “Captchas.” You’ll find these on both Google-owned and non-Google web sites that use Google’s Captcha service.

The first change added a second word, a “real” word, in addition to the (seemingly) random letters or letters and numbers. This ‘real’ word is a scan from one of the many books that Google has scanned and put online.

Supposedly, it is, or was, a word that Google’s automatic character recognition software was not able to interpret during the scan, or not able to interpret with a high degree of certainty. So…. shoot it out to a handful of Captcha boxes, and if a majority of those users agree, POOF, problem solved. This is an example of a technique called “crowd sourcing.”

The recent change in Captchas is that the 2nd word is now sometimes a photograph, and in this photograph is the house number or address from a snapshot of Google’s Street View. (more…)

Sir John Benney, Intrepid Arctic Explorer

April 23rd, 2012 by Vader

His Majesty shared this one with me.

Sir John Benney was among the Arctic explorers who looked for new records to break after the prize of the North Pole was claimed by Peary. Benney chose to test human endurance with a solo trek from the edge of the pack ice, off the North Cape of Norway, to the northern tip of Greenland.

But that wasn’t sufficient for the intrepid explorer. He also chose to make this trip in the depths of the frigid Arctic winter. Unfortunately, it was too much for him. His last camp, with his frozen body still in his tent, was located in the spring of 1913. Curiously, he was found clean-shaven, and his would-be rescuers speculated that he might have survived if he had retained the extra insulation of a flourishing beard.

In accordance with his final wishes, his body was cremated and the remains returned to his family.

His Majesty drew an important lesson from this story.   (more…)

Bank foreclosures on churches skyrocket

March 09th, 2012 by Bookslinger

www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/09/us-usa-housing-churches-idUSBRE82803120120309

This illustrates the wisdom of the LDS church’s economic model of raising (or setting aside) funds in advance and paying cash for church buildings (no mortgages).

It also illustrates the wisdom of church headquarters owning the real estate and not the local congregations.

I suppose some of those empty churches might be just the right size to be easily adapted for LDS use.
