Time to buy a new car.

It is constantly amazing that the left continues to resurrect the corpse of 19th century racism, merely innovating by inverting that philosophy.

What sparked the interest in the screenwriting video? Is our host working on something related?

Dear God, no. Can you imagine? I just stumbled across them and they seemed less pretentious, and more interesting, than most things of that kind.

David

the left continues to resurrect the corpse of 19th century racism, merely innovating by inverting that philosophy.

And so, if you don’t defer to Professor DiAngelo’s pernicious racial dogma, and don’t care to fixate on race or use it as a decisive variable in every interaction, like some neurotic bigot, then you must be “dangerous” to minorities.

These creatures really are the cultural and moral analogue of bone cancer.

Franklin

Can you imagine?

For the record, I would watch a Guild of Evil movie.

Hey, where’s my hat tip and, more importantly, free drink?

The nudity would of course be integral to the plot.

David

What did I miss?

Enkidu

Dude has awesome peripheral vision, all I can say.

Pogonip

You missed the vanishing anus. Which, I grant, is easy to do, since it vanishes.

David

You missed the vanishing anus.

Ah. I swear I read most of the comments. No, really.

Help yourself to anything in the lost property box.

Pogonip

There have been lots of societies ruled by a crazy monarch of either sex, and some ruled by crazy men. The West is rapidly becoming the first one ruled by crazy women. The crazy men, however crazy they were, always had an understandable motive, generally that of getting filthy rich. The crazy women, on the other hand, seem to have no motive besides hatred of everything and everybody. They’re scary because their behavior is so un-human. How do you negotiate with somebody whose firm goal is to wreck everything?

A milestone innovation.

Flourmite - either fluorinated marmite (9 out of 10 dentists approve), fluorescent marmite (so you can see what to avoid in the dark), or those damn bugs that get into your flour if the container is not sealed tightly enough.

Meanwhile, transparent wood, interesting, but seems a bit of a solution in search of a problem as I am not sure something soaked in epoxy or methyl methacrylate is more "biodegradeable" than either glass or plastic, either of which can be recycled.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Feminism, a play in two acts.

fluorinated marmite

See, now I have a mental image of Marmite toothpaste. Which just seems wrong somehow.

A milestone innovation.

From an earlier thread:

Shimmer

It's a Floor Wax and a Dessert Topping.

Probably a product developed for the military.

WTP

From the Titania article:

“She is named after the queen of the fairies because I think all of this ‘woke culture’ is an utter fantasy world,” he said. “The people who promote this hyper inclusive culture are fantasists.

“They believe that racial boundaries must be strictly policed, so any cultural appropriation is completely off bounds. But gender is totally 100 per cent fluid and you can pick and choose as you please. This stuff is completely incoherent and the stuff of fantasy. So I think it’s quite appropriate that she is named after the queen of the fairies.”

Some 30 years ago a psychiatrist told me that “perception is reality”. I said that there would be consequences for that. He informed me that I was being naive in refusing to accept this reality. We went in circles. He was very smart. I was very dumb...well, uncredentialed specifically. And now here we are. Not that there’s any connection whatsoever.

WTP

Probably a product developed for the military.

The F-35 comes to mind.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

There's dumb, there's ignorant, and then there's Clara Sorrenti:

At its peak, the Soviet Union was an industrial powerhouse that was capable of rivalling the U.S. economy.

Well, OK, other than the lack of food and consumer goods, there was the world famous Soviet auto industry that nearly brought the US, German, and Japanese auto industries to their knees.

The only tempting thing about becoming an actual Stalinist is the thought of joining the actual Stalinists when they teach all the people who think they're Stalinists about Stalinism.

Darleen

These creatures really are the cultural and moral analogue of bone cancer.

They are the Nazis they claim of others.

And I'm not using the term promiscuously. Nazis were obsessed with race and racial purity. Individuals no longer existed for them, everyone was to be catalogued, and judged, by "race".

Sam Duncan

“He was very smart. I was very dumb...well, uncredentialed specifically. And now here we are.”

It's amazing how often common sense trumps the collective wisdom of the worlds greatest Thinkers.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Heh.

Man using the ladies is triggered by man cleaning the ladies. Problematic.

It has electrolytes, it is what plants crave, but you need a license, or something.

Just how wide is the neck of the Enterprise?

Glad we've cleared that up.

pst314

"At its peak, the Soviet Union was an industrial powerhouse that was capable of rivalling the U.S. economy."

Looking back, it's appalling how many supposedly knowledgeable people in the West told us exactly that. I still wonder how many of them realized they were perpetuating lies.

pst314

"the world famous Soviet auto industry"

"Made In Russia: 19 Of The Worst Cars The Russians Ever Made"

It confirms that the neck was always the worst part of the ship’s design.

pst314

Just how wide is the neck of the Enterprise?

Did you notice how tiresomely long and drawn-out that video was? Who actually sits through that junk? 11-year-old kids?

Darleen

I can't decide what's more problematic - the ignorance of the Constitution or the anti-religious bigotry.

WTP

Man using the ladies is triggered by man cleaning the ladies.

At my gym, at 10:30-11:00 hour or so, there’s always a woman cleaning the men’s locker room. Occasionally there’s a sign out front of the ladies’ stating that there are men working in the ladies’. One day both lockers had signs saying the opposite sex was working the opposite sex locker rooms. The stupid in me was puzzled as to why since both same sex workers were working, why the woman couldn’t work the ladies and the men work the men’s. The sexist patriarchal society bad no goodnik in me understood, however.

Steve E

Man using the ladies is triggered by man cleaning the ladies.

Obviously raised on an irony-deficient diet.

Sam Duncan

“the world famous Soviet auto industry”

This used to be common knowledge during the Cold War, but bears repeating. I expect it comes as news to millennials:

[I]t's a fact that you had to wait for years to buy a car in the Soviet Union. And not just wait. Special people did a thorough check to see if you were hard-working enough and loyal enough to the party to deserve that car in the first place. In other countries in Eastern Europe that were part of the Communist Bloc, the situation was pretty much similar since they worked under the same regime.

Oh, look! Brie Larson, whose new feminist Captain Marvel is totally uncontroversial, is Wikipedia's featured article today. Because Wikipedia is impartial. (Link to the archive where it'll appear from tomorrow, because it'll disappear from the front page.)

Farnsworth M Muldoon

[I]t's a fact that you had to wait for years to buy a car in the Soviet Union.

Mr. Reagan then told his current favorite, about a Russian who wants to buy a car.

The man goes to the official agency, puts down his money and is told that he can take delivery of his automobile in exactly 10 years.

''Morning or afternoon?'' the purchaser asks. ''Ten years from now, what difference does it make?'' replies the clerk.

''Well,'' says the car-buyer, ''the plumber's coming in the morning."

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Oh, look! Brie Larson, whose new feminist Captain Marvel is totally uncontroversial...

Who are you going to believe, critics who are professional reviewers who review critically, or some bunch of rando schlubbs who actually saw the film ?

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Well this is a shocking discovery.

Sam

Obviously raised on an irony-deficient diet.

Careful Steve. That's how one gets hamster urine'd round these parts.

Also, that tweet filled my dumb quota for the entire week. All by itself. See y'all later.

David

Well this is a shocking discovery.

I’m just glad I was sitting down.

Darleen

Well this is a shocking discovery

Then, a little further down that thread, yet another discovery sure to gobsmack.

Darleen

Oh, and for those keeping score at home on the Jussie Smollett hoax - today the grand jury returned 16 felony counts.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

...today the grand jury returned 16 felony counts.

Yes, but the federal investigation is ongoing so there may be more to come...

Pogonip

If that guy had lived in Chicago longer than one day, he would have realized NOBODY would go out during a winter cold snap in a thin MAGA hat. It gets so cold there that single women wear real, substantial winter hats. He must be dumb as a rock.

I figured the DA would throw the book at him. They have real crime in Chicago on which the cops can spend their time and funding, and I’m sure one of the reasons the police chief was so upset is that the coppers would have known from the start it was a hoax.

The menace must be confronted:

Agreed! Stacks and stacks of unpaid "bills". Not to mention the untold "quackery" and the damage it has done. It's time we got our "ducks in a row" to deal with this "fowl" menace.

Steve E

Farnsworth,

How do you post your images on this blog? My Firefox browser will not display images that you post. I have to open up David's blog in MS Edge to see images that you post. I do run Firefox in private mode (one must at least appear to be respectable). I'm not sure if that's the issue. You typically post great images, it's a pain in the butt to have to open a different unprotected browser to see them.

Pogonip

Bad puns are flying! DUCK!

Sign of overly urbanized population: A mother and ducklings waddled around the pond at my dad’s nursing home. One day the first curious duckling dived in. A nice lady “rescued” the little duck in fear he would drown.

Fortunately one of the nurses had a farm and took the duckling home with her, where he could carry on with his duckly activities without fear of rescue.

pst314

"How do you post your images on this blog? My Firefox browser will not display images that you post. I have to open up David's blog in MS Edge to see images that you post."

Maybe this is a useful clue:

Viewing the page source, I see this for Farnsworth's Captain Marvel image:
[img src="https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D1J0YFYX4AEbp1a.jpg"]

and this for my Ducks image:
[img src="https://i.postimg.cc/RZRV2JXZ/ducks-how-to-make-them-pay.jpg"]

(All <> brackets replaced with [] brackets)

I used Postimage.org to upload an image and get a permanent URL.
Farnsworth used something else which I do not recognize.

pst314

Bad puns? That's a canard!

Farnsworth M Muldoon

@Steve E,

Links to source. The problem seems to be Firefox private mode, I just tried it both ways, and it blocks for me in private mode too. However, Firefox, of all my plethora of browsers, is the only one with a private mode that blocks the links.

Try SRWare Iron, it is better than Firefox anyway.

Steve E

Thanks pst314, that's likely the issue. I use the "view image" function in Firefox, then copy the .png or .jpg url into the html img function using the <> brackets. I just tried the view image function on Farnsworth's image in Firefox and the image url opened up in a new window. At least it's better than opening a whole other browser.

Steve E

Thanks Farnsworth. I just tried the view image function in Firefox in Private Mode and it opened a new window with the just the image displayed. Not perfect, but better than opening another browser.

Cheers

A ride through the West End of London 1959

I lived in London in 1959. How'd they remove the smog/fog from that video???

I remember my mother making my sister and me blow our noses when we all got home from the bus stop/tube station, to rid ourselves of the foul brown mucus in our nostrils.

Squires

The sexist patriarchal society bad no goodnik in me understood, however.

This sounds like someone who grew up with a female sibling, or in some other way had the illusion of the fairer sex also being the cleaner sex shattered.

David

Vanity as lifestyle choice.

It’s hard to say much about a film I haven’t seen and don’t feel tempted to to see, thanks to the underwhelming trailers, the obnoxious posturing of Ms Larson, and the fact that I’m weary of ‘I can’t remember who I am’ storylines. That said, the mismatch of woke media gushing and general audience ratings is becoming a recurring theme.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

In today's exciting installment of "Things That Never Happened..." we find a woke 10 year old pondering women's suffrage in the 1920s....

Vile punster!

Pst is not available to comment, as he is helping us with our inquiries.

Pogonip

Farnsworth, I must differ. When I was 10, women’s suffrage was all I thought about. Which, looking back, was probably why I was always picked last in gym, as I’d get to meditating on women’s suffrage and forget to pay attention to where the ball was going. I dressed my Barbies in 1920’s clothing and endlessly re-enacted suffragette marches. I lost my last friend from talking about women’s suffrage, as she, being ten, thought it meant being in favor of women suffering. I got straight A’s in History, though.

So you see, the story of the ten-year-old lecturing Mom on suffragettes is not nearly as fishy as it sounds. I’m living proof.

Now, when the kid says, “SMH,” I agree THAT never happened, as I never said that either. Come to think of it, I haven’t said it in the ensuing 49 years, either.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

So you see, the story of the ten-year-old lecturing Mom on suffragettes is not nearly as fishy as it sounds.

Pogo, it is a ten year old Muslim boy, who didn't say that stuff. The reality would have been more like "Why are you looking at anything to do with an infidel Crusader sharmuta (wacks kid with Koran)".

Meanwhile, let's play "Spot The Oxymoron !"

A ride through the West End of London 1959

Sorry, Fay, but that is what London was like in 1959, I lived half a mile from the West End.

Definite pollutant haze, but ok for my distance training runs. Seldom had to resort to the gym because of fog.

And it got steadily better, the greatish fog of 1962 was thick, but not a patch on 1959, which itself was merely a mini me of 1952.

Pogonip

WTP: No, I made sandwiches.

Russian President Putin gave a very nice speech lauding his nation’s women. Darn link won’t work but you can search for it. In short, he praised Russian women for keeping the country and its homes beautiful even while working outside jobs and noted that they would be the people mainly responsible for forging the character of the next generation of Russians, as well as bringing those Russians into the world.

It was nice to read about one of the richest men in the world acknowledging the importance of the work we peasant women do. We don’t get much press. Spasibo!

Pogonip

Fred, have you read about the late 1940’s fog in Donora, Pennsylvania, in which there was so little oxygen, and so many toxic gases, in the air, that vehicles wouldn’t run, you couldn’t see, and 12 people died? Donora, a steel-mill town, sat in a natural bowl in hilly country. Normally the toxic gases were blown away by the wind anyway, but that particular Halloween there was a temperature inversion that clamped a lid on the bowl for a few days.

In the ‘80’s and ‘90’s, the U.S. gov’t ensured that such a tragedy would never re-occur by making sure that all well-paying industrial work was shipped safely far away to Asia.

The story of the fog can be found in The Medical Detectives, Vol II, by Berton Roueche, who, for about 30 years, wrote interesting medical stories for The New Yorker. The magazine used to sell copies of each individual article, too, but I don’t know if they still do.

What I want to know is, did he write the speech, or was it Mrs. Putin? 😄

Will feminist innovation never cease?

A feminist educator in the United Kingdom is making a point not to step aside when men walk in her direction, playing what she refers to as “patriarchy chicken.” [...] “A few days ago, I was having a bad morning: my train tickets were expensive, my train was delayed, and my coffee was cold,” [Dr Charlotte] Riley wrote. “But I cheered myself up by playing a game on my commute. The game is called Patriarchy Chicken, and the rules are simple: do not move out of the way for men.” If that sounds like something that would be ungentlemanly conduct if perpetrated by a man, you would be correct in your assessment.

This, you’ll note, is a grown woman. A professional educator.

Via Instapundit.

Steve E

...the rules are simple: do not move out of the way for men.

From the article it says there's a name for these people and it's a$$holes. Well I have a name for her and it's the only name my wife won't let me use and that's c*nt.

Pogonip

That’ll be fun when some burly young fellow absorbed in a phone crashes into her. Me, I keep a sharp eye out after a few near-misses. I’d yell “ EXCUSE ME!” The kid would lift his head, blink, look puzzled, sometimes smile tentatively, then return to his phone and his course. It is not at all difficult to get such people to bump into you and I can’t imagine any magazine desperate enough to publish a how-to on same.

I’m beginning to think that stupidity is a requirement if you want to teach at a college.

Once, for a little variety, I barked. The exact same sequence played out. Lift, blink, smile, back to phone. Maybe it’s hardwired these days.

With the female the sequence is the same except a glare is a likely as a smile. ( The American girl these days is usually angry.) I haven’t tried barking at a female for fear she’d decide she’s my “pet parent.”

Patrick Brown

I'm pretty sure all the best 19th century patriarchs would agree that it is proper for a gentleman to step aside for a lady. Just like it was proper for gentlemen to watch their mouths when there were ladies present. You've come a long way, baby.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

...making a point not to step aside...

“The point is that men have been socialised, for their entire lives, to take up space. Men who would never express these thoughts out loud have nevertheless been brought up to believe that their right to occupy space takes precedence over anyone else’s right to be there. They spread their legs on tubes and trains, they bellow across coffee shops and guffaw in pubs, and they never, ever give way.”

Oh noes, someone in a pub guffawing ? Why, I do declare, I would take the vapors.

They never, ever give way, except by her own admission, when they do (as the article points out), and then she steps back in front of them.

“Last week, on a busy train platform, a man was so confused by my trajectory towards him that he stopped dead in front of me, holding eye contact, and flapped his mouth like a fish,”

a different James

The game is called Patriarchy Chicken, and the rules are simple: do not move out of the way for men.

Actually, those of us who absorbed values now generally derided as Patriarchal would invariably give way to a woman on the street if a collision was otherwise inevitable or if the woman was discommoded. We would also open doors for them or allow them to have seats on the bus or train ahead of us.

If men longer do so, it is because (i) they are ignorant and unmannerly or (ii) they have been told off by women for doing so and have adjusted their behaviour accordingly.

Sam Duncan

It's also worth watching how monkeys - or maybe it's chimps, or gorrillas or something; I don't know, I'm not a zoologist - peel bananas. Not all, but a significant proportion of humans (myself included, a few years back) will experience a similar revelation.

When I worked for a Major Defense Contractor, one of the projects that I worked on for just a few months was run by a domineering woman. I had occasion once to pass her and her (female) assistant in a very narrow cube farm hallway one day. The two of them had quite the head of steam going and the natural, human instinct to both give way a little was obviously not going to be observed so my 6'4" 220 lbs. had to flatten itself against the cube farm wall to let these VIP's pass. Didn't think too much of it at the time as I was new and did not really know who the hell she was. I only learned later upon hearing that the Big Boss was in the office that day. As I understood it, she being a Big Boss was quite the inspiration to many of the younger females on the project. As I was moving off that project, she lost out to a Muslim gentleman on a big promotion that everyone was expecting her to get (this project was under a contract with the UK MoD). I really didn't care but I recall hearing that many of the younger women on the project were quite upset about this. I might also note that that project had the highest nasty-women factor of anything I have worked on before or since.

Hondell

So brave. She can get Englishmen to step into the gutter, because the ancestral English are mild-mannered, chivalrous to women, tolerant of eccentrics, kind to mentally ill people, and predisposed to avoid conflict and de-escalate tensions. None of these social conventions are obvious or natural, they're rare in the world, and they're fragile in England, especially if people think they can shit in the well and nothing bad is going to come of it. The new vibrant Englishmen have had no such traditions handed down to them, and I bet she doesn't try that strutting and staring-down on them - much safer to humiliate men who have been conditioned to take humiliation from women.

Darleen

None of these social conventions are obvious or natural, they're rare in the world, and they're fragile in England, especially if people think they can shit in the well and nothing bad is going to come of it.

A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot.
*******************
Moving parts in rubbing contact require lubrication to avoid excessive wear. Honorifics and formal politeness provide lubrication where people rub together. Often the very young, the untravelled, the naive, the unsophisticated deplore these formalities as "empty," "meaningless," or "dishonest," and scorn to use them. No matter how "pure" their motives, they thereby throw sand into machinery that does not work too well at best.

Pogonip

Now he can explain to her why the cat is barking.

We have fun with this, but we must remember that the men of the ruling class abdicated, and are abdicating, their responsibility to lead, which allowed this to happen. Consider how different things might have been if, ca. 1970, even one or two men of the ruling class had said, “Oh, for heaven’s sake, Gloria. If you are surprised that a job requiring you to carry heavy trays while wearing a tight corset and 5-inch spikes made you hurt, you’re too dumb for us to be able to help you. Shut up, go home, crack some books, and then come back after you’ve learned something and maybe we’ll be able to take you a bit more seriously.” Did they do this? No. Instead, totally abdicating their responsibility to maintain society, they seized the opportunity to get their bored, bitchy wives out of their hair and onto the picket lines, and the opportunity to keep their bored, bitchy daughters out of their hair and in school FOREVER, as students and graduate students and Angry Studies professors and on and on. And here we are decades later. It’s entirely their fault for allowing it to happen.

One encounters this type of progressive politics fairly frequently online; trite self-justifying aphorisms like 'civility is what has got us in this mess, fuck civility!' But being impolite is not just using an F word on Facebook; indeed that hardly matters. It's treating others with basic respect, and being tolerant in the little matters as well as in the big matters. What these progressives are really saying is that it's all too hard for them not being an arsehole; they want to throw off the strictures of manners and decency and live out their truth, their fundamental arseyholeyness.
