Is Argos a UK thing? We had one in Pompano Beach for a short while in the late 60's/early 70's. Only one I ever saw or heard of. Thought it was a local thing.

My snippet in bold

One dark and stormy night I came by the house to see what was the matter. But the place was empty, the windows barred, the curtains drawn. I knocked, and nobody answered. I could see nothing in the yard; but the whole house seemed to be shaking, as if the spirit of some one were watching me, and I trembled lest some one should break the window. When at last I saw somebody enter, it was an old man, in a night cap and a shirt open in the back. He called, but I could hear him not a word, and he had not the faintest idea of my calling, when he entered, and said

Thanks for the thought, Darleen.

My insertion of the same snippet:

One dark and stormy night a long time ago, my father, the village elder, was awakened by the roaring of a storm. He rose from his bed, filled with dread, and, with trembling hands, went to see what the disturbance was about. As he drew near to the door he saw a man standing there who had a large knife in his hand. He was dressed in an old red and white robe with the corners cut away. A long, narrow sword with a black hilt was at his side.

My father asked him, "What are you up to?"

The man said, "I am a messenger of the king."

It was the best of times, it was the wurst of times, it was the dark days, it was the end of days," he said, according to the Post. "And it was a great time to be alive."

The Post described the scene:

A tall, imposing, black-gloved figure on the steps leading up to the altar. Atop his shoulders was a black robe of the highest quality, and the brim was as far down as the shoulders. With a black-gloved hand, a priest gently touched the altar and pulled out a long, narrow black dagger.

I also tried "Gadzooks! He exclaimed." but the output was both weird and uninteresting. "Gadzooks" may have been a locution to far or perhaps three words was just not enough to work with.

...the creepy male feminist

The mind goes back to the peculiarly extreme example of Hugo Schwyzer. A few years ago his feminist proclamations were all over the media; feminists like Clem Ford thought he was great.

Then it was revealed he’d tried to kill a previous wife. And had been sleeping with young female students during his tenure as a gender studies academic. Then, finally, he dished on himself in a series of tweets and articles about how he *knew* all the gender studies crap he was spouting *was* crap and he’d been doing it for attention, particularly the attentions of young female students.

Now?

"Suppose post-modernist thought is unconcerned with the dissemination of truth, and that its goal is, instead, the abolition of truth. How would you go about it? You might begin by cloaking it in an excess of verbiage, by using terms precisely defined in so vague a manner that they could mean anything.* Thus, instead of saying "postmodernism is a way of thinking about language," you could write "Postmodernism is a way of thinking about the world" (or, in plain English: "Postmodernism is a way of thinking about history"). This sort of obfuscation can be useful in certain circumstances, but it is not a useful strategy for spreading the gospel of truth, no matter how absurd the claims it makes. The same goes for the rhetorical strategy of trying to get people to believe something that doesn't hold up to scrutiny.

And finally, and this one is the trickiest, you could just outright lie about"

A priest, a rabbi, and a pastor walk into a bar.

The priest: "What should we talk about?"

Rabbi: "I want to know what the Bible says about sex."

Priest: "If we talk about it, it might turn into something more."

Rabbi: "I thought it was supposed to be about sex?"

Priest: "Sex doesn't need to be talked about."

The pastor: "Well, how do you know the Bible says anything at all about sex?"

The priest: "I've read it a thousand times and I know what it says."

The pastor: "How do you know that if you haven't read it a thousand times?"

The rabbi: "I read it and it says that sex is not for marriage. Sex is for procreation."

The pastor: "I'm not sure I buy that.

Needless to say, I am somewhat less than impressed. It's always about sex with these neural networks. How they get anything else done is beyond me.

“Because you demanded it, four decades of Argos catalogues.”

The scary part is that I actually recognised the first one I ever saw: the glorious gold cover of 1977-'78. In fact, all of them from then right through the '80s rang a bell. (Weirdly, '88-'89 seems so familiar that I would have sworn it was much more recent. Knowing my lot, it probably hung around the house for about a decade.)

That space in my brain could be doing something useful.

“If you’ve ever wondered what would be published...”

Note how the unthinking reflex Marxism crowds out any possibility that witch-hunts might have had something to do with overzealous Christianity rather than “capitalism”.

”But you're not dying—”

”I'm staying,” she said. ”I'm not leaving without a fight.”

”Well, then, I guess I'll leave too,” she said. ”I'm staying.”

I vaguely recall my first visit to an Argos store, as a wee seedling. It seemed both futuristic and downmarket. With lots of jostling.

Needless to say, it no longer seems futuristic.

So I wiki'd Argos and it says founded in 1972, which sounds about the time the one in Pompano Beach closed and/or bought out and replaced by (I think) Service Merchandise. Doing some quick Googling for "Argos Pompano Beach Department Store" gives numerous things but not about the store that I remember. There's a Facebook group about South Florida where people constantly post "How about..." or "Anyone remember..." and name some restaurant or bar or such that everybody would know. Gets kinda annoying. I'll see what I can find but I doubt the two are related. What caught my eye to some degree about the catalogs was that the ads seemed somewhat 1970's American in the way the models and families were dressed and such. Not that I expect a big difference but usually I can pick out subtle stuff like that. Maybe Alistair Cooke had a hand in putting those together...

OK, now this one seems plausible...plus I'm impressed that neural networks do come with a patriarchal society feature. I'm guessing it's a plug-in because, of course.

Three Blondes were driving to Disneyland. The girls were in the front passenger seat and the father was behind the wheel. The girls were driving on I-5 near downtown Vancouver.

When they passed over the U.S. border at Golden, British Columbia, the girls noticed that their car did not have a licence plate. They did not see any signs saying where the plates should be located on the car.

They turned to the front seat passenger and told her to go to the front of the car and look behind the passenger seat. She saw a license plate and realized that the car was a stolen one.

The girls told their father about the licence plate. The father immediately reported the licence plate as stolen to the police.

Vancouver police, Vancouver City Hall, the British Columbia Highway Patrol and the Canadian Border Services Agency were all involved in the investigation.

During the investigation, the girls noticed a small piece of wood lying on the highway. The girls assumed

When the [social security] programme began, every 100 workers were supporting three retirees... By 2017, 100 workers were supporting 25 retirees… According to Census Bureau projections, by 2030 each 100 working-age Americans will be supporting 35 retirees, and this could rise to 42 by 2060...

Another way to think of this is to calculate the number of retirees each worker must support. In 1946, the burden of one retiree was shared between 42 workers. Today, according to the Social Security Administration, roughly three workers cover each retiree’s Social Security and Medicare benefits. By 2030, however, there will be only two workers supporting each retiree. In other words, a working couple will have to support not only themselves and their family but also someone outside the family thanks to Social Security and Medicare.

Today’s word is unsustainable.

When they passed over the U.S. border at Golden, British Columbia,...

Golden, British Columbia is a small town in the Columbia River Valley between the Rocky Mountains and the Columbia Mountains. It's about 400 miles from the US border and about 450 miles from Vancouver.

Even Hemingway wasn't able to demonstrate such an economy of words.

If you ever get drunk in Golden and need to sober up fast, a quick dip in the Columbia River will do the trick. Speaking from experience.

“It seemed both futuristic and downmarket. With lots of jostling.”

Is Argos a UK thing?

In Canada we had Consumers Distributing (or as we called it, Consumers Disturbing) that used the same retail concept. It was a frustrating place to shop. You'd fill out a card, take it to the counter, a sales associate would toddle off into "the back" come back five to ten minutes later and tell you the item was out of stock.

It was like russian roulette with no bullets.

A great interview with Jordan Peterson.

The interviewer is Rex Murphy a columnist with the National Post. If you're wondering about the accent, that's what a Newfoundlander sounds like. In Rex's case a well educated Newfoundlander.

Here's the description from Jordan Peterson:

"An open conversation with Rex Murphy about the modern state of education, politics, identity, and new media. Recorded in early September. For those international viewers, unfamiliar with Canadian media, it will be useful for you to know that Rex Murphy is one of Canada's premier journalists: tough, truthful, politically correct, and possessed of a singular style and character. It was both an honor and a pleasure to meet him."

Driving from Edinburgh, we couldn't help notice the sheep alongside the road, covered with splotches of day-glo paint. We stopped and were surprised to see the animals in a lovely state of undress.

As we got out of the car, they stopped for a moment and were so embarrassed they started to run up the road. This led to a hilarious scene where the sheep, who weren't even supposed to be there, were trying to keep up with the cars, all of which were driving down the wrong side of the road.

We decided to keep driving for a bit, stopping every once in a while to take pictures. I'd like to think this was a good idea and that they enjoyed the time they were in the frame, but there's no doubt that they would have been more successful running along the right hand side of the road.

The sheep were quite content and seemed perfectly content

From time to time in our great island story, it falls to one man to explain the origins of applesauce. "They are the fruits of the forest," he will say. "The tree of knowledge is the forest." He will give no further explanation, and you will still have to figure it out for yourself. I can't say that it will be a satisfying or enjoyable process.

If you were to pick out the five most popular foods that everyone knows, I think you would have to say these are applesauce. It is an apple. It is also a vegetable. It is a fruit. It is also an animal. In short, it is everything at once. And yet it is a very specific fruit, which is why I find it so fascinating to explain how it was created in ancient Egypt.

His face was filled with sadness, but he didn't have much time left with his son, he had to keep moving. He told me his story:

My father was an Imperial soldier in a city-state. He died in the war, and was killed when his home was invaded. My mother was a slave.

She was forced to join the army as a child, but she refused to serve. One day the war broke out, and she was drafted into the army. She was a coward, and fought as she had always done: with her bare hands. She lost her arm in the fight, and her legs were wounded. She managed to get off one shot, and was...

His explanation was simple: He had heard about the raid and wanted to show solidarity with the people of Ferguson, Mo. who were protesting in solidarity with Eric Garner, a Staten Island man who died after being arrested on suspicion of selling loose, untaxed cigarettes.

After the incident, the Sheriff's Department opened an internal affairs investigation. The Sheriff's Department has been criticized for its tactics during the uprising. In response to that criticism, the department changed its procedure regarding the use of tear gas. In March, it changed its policy regarding the use of weapons, including tear gas, in confrontations with citizens. It's still the policy, however, that it is not permitted to deploy the gas except when a person's life is in danger. The department has also revised its policy on the use of riot gear and armored vehicles.
