    R.I.P. 2PAC. Hard to believe it’s been 16 years….

  2. Bman says:

    I guess this is one of the hottest new shows on TV. I just learned about it 8 minutes ago.

    If you happen to know anybody who watches this show, be sure to encourage them to vote November 7th.

    We are doomed.

  3. KJ says:

    I was at Ft Jackson in BT when 2Pac died. One of the Drill Sergeants came out and asked if any of us were fans, a bunch were, so then he said, “Too bad, he’s fucking dead!” I though it was kind of comical.

  4. notamobster says:

    I was in basic when he died, too. My drill instructor was doing mail call and daily brief, when he told us in much the same way.

    “Anyone here a fan of Tupac? Yeah? He’s dead.”

    Who is Tupac?

    I was in basic when Leonid Brezhnev died. Drill sergeant said we will probably have to fight the Soviets as the hardliners take over.

      TRIPOLI, Lebanon (Reuters) – One demonstrator was killed and two others were wounded in clashes with security forces in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli on Friday in protests over a film insulting the Muslim Prophet Mohammad and against the pope’s visit to Lebanon.

      A security source said the man was killed as protesters tried to storm a government building. Earlier, a U.S. fast food restaurant was set alight. Twelve members of the security forces were wounded by stones thrown by protesters, the source said.

    Shoes, shoes, shoes. What is it with the damned shoes? I know I’ll never understand it and here’s part of the reason why…

    I see a car or truck with nice rims that really set it off. I say something to my wife and she is completely indifferent… could not care less. She doesn’t ‘get’ what the ‘big deal’ is about the wheels. Get that?

    This is the same woman who’s taken note of every shoe she’s ever laid eyes on … who spends untold hours searching for the perfect combination of Comfortable and Good-Looking… who would rather get a bunion than wear ‘ugly’ shoes… and she doesn’t ‘get it’ when Sweet Rims absolutely MAKE a car?

    I was just gonna post that! Interesting, while I don’t give a hoot about his sexuality, muslims do. Although there is a disconnect there, as a lot of their culture embraces pedophilia – bestiality and necrophilia.

    Although are they like us? We lump everyone in another culture in together, as they might lump conservatives in the freak liberal group that also thinks everything goes. I have to admit that I have not spent a lot of time researching or learning about muslims. I only started reading Brigette Gabriel, and Walid Phares just recently.

    Reading accounts of the attack on Camp Bastion/Leatherneck, one have to wonder how Security can be so f–ked, that the Jihadists presently in appeasement talks with our elected politicians, can not just breach the perimeter fence but advance into the base and kill two Marines and destroy 6 Harrier Jump Jets.

Axelrod saying Romney’s gonna buy the election with million dollar donations (pot/kettle). I thought someone was funnin’ me (perhaps even one of you guys) and then last night it dawned on me… they put me on the list when I registered to vote in Florida. All BO stuff/ no GOP stuff.

    One for the techies:

    What causes a phone’s battery to suddenly start draining FAST? I have a Samsung (Android). Noticed about a week ago that I had to recharge it a lot more frequently than before. Most of the time it’s on “sleep”/standby. Fully charged it today, and the status screen already shows it’s down to 92%. I expect I’ll have to recharge it tomorrow evening or Tuesday morning.

    Battery usage screen shows 48% “phone idle”, 48% “call standby”, and 5% “Android use” (mathematically impossible, but that’s what it says).

    What makes me so mad is that I just bought it in January. Find it hard to believe it would “die” so soon. Not willing to spend hundreds for another one, plus activation charges, etc.

    Would uninstalling all the Google Maps-type apps help any? Will take it to the place I bought it tomorrow for a diagnostic, but was hoping someone could enlighten this little blonde Revoista in advance of that. Many thanks.

  23. notamobster says:

    If li-ion batteries are allowed to completely discharge (they technically can’t by design), they lose capacity.

    There are reasons due to chemical reactions inside the cells, but that’s the gist of it. Using crappy charging devices shortens a batteries expectant life cycle. ;-)

  24. Air Force Brat says:

    I use only the charging device that came with the phone. And, I’ve had this type of thing happen with a previous phone (not an Android) as well. It almost makes me wonder if Sprint deliberately sells products that are designed to “die young”, so as to generate more frequent sales from those who aren’t sucked into buying the “replacement insurance” coverage they try to push.

  25. sortahwitte says:

    AFB. Recently, my phone started losing charge way too soon. A friend asked how long it had been since it was shut off and then powered up to allow updates. A long time. I did it and it worked. Absolutely no idea why, but it’s back to normal.

    As for beef sell off, a lot of it is DAIRY. culled dairy cows aren’t top grade freezer beef, if anyone is filling their freezer with culled beef then they should investigate what the cow was fed. grain/pasture fed beef is high quality. We raise holsteins fed grain and the butcher we work with says he can’t tell the difference between ours and angus.

There was one big ol’ dipshit I wish I had punched in the nose (and then let the ass-kickin’ fall where it may) but… all-in-all I shouldn’t complain. Considering the jugheads I ran with it’s a wonder I made it through with all my limbs intact. One bum knee is a small price to pay for the rampant stupidity I took part in.

    My only real regret is that I didn’t talk to my old man… or rather that I didn’t listen to him and find out more about him and what he was like as a young man and what he believed and why he believed it. He had so many stories but I was so busy being an idiot that I never slowed down long enough to hear them. Shame on me.

    He probably encouraged me to join the military but I already knew everything so I’m sure I just mumbled something under my breath as I hurried off to chase my tail. Next thing you know I’m in St. Croix… Hurricane Hugo… busted knee… back to NC… met my wife… livin’ my life… Dad’s in ICU. Ya’ know that old saying “It’s never too late”? That’s the stoopidest old saying ever.

  45. vanagram says:

    After a President has been in office for 1 year it is customary for the
    last President to send a note to the new president. So when the note came from Bush to Obama, the President was somewhat troubled because it was written in code and all it said was:

    370H-SSA-0773H

    This troubled him as he had always heard from his peers how former
    president Bush was perceived to have been scholarly challenged. So he took the note to his wife. She was unable to decipher it.

    They called in the VP, and he was unable to decode the message. They
    called in the chief of staff and the head of Secret Service detail and they were unable to determine the meaning of the note.

    Next he called in the head of the Senate and Speaker of the House.. They both were mystified by the meaning of the coded message.
    Now there was complete panic in the Oval Office. They called all of
    their contacts in the media and sent copies of the note to all of them, and not one was able to come up with an answer.

    A special emergency meeting was called by the staff. All branches of the military, counter intelligence, CIA, FBI were called in, and the best minds were unable crack the code.
    After a sleepless night, a now humbled President Obama picked up the
    phone and called the former president, and asked him the meaning of the note.

    George Bush replied—” you’re holding it upside down”!

    Very sorry to hear of your Father. thoughts and prayers buddy.

    Got me to thinking of my Pop. He was never one to be overly emotional, or much of a talker. The later years of his life I think he realized how much he still had to share with us kids, not being much of a talker he did what he loved. He wrote us short stories, of the most important parts of his life. I’ll try to post one below, WW2 as he saw it being a 10 year old. May be too long to post but I’ll try. I think this group may enjoy his perspective.

    WWII
    To us kids, the Second World War was the greatest thing that ever happened in all of history. None of realized the horrors of conflict such as that and it seemed to be a real fun thing with very few sad moments thrown in. None of us knew of, or understood, the true atrocities the Nazis inflicted on helpless populations as they exterminated six million Jews and probably as many Poles, Russians, Slovaks, Gypsies and almost any other ethnic group you could name. None of us knew what the beastly Japs were capable of even after watching them destroy China and other parts of Asia for so many years. They were only newsreels! That was the movies! Was it really, really, truly happening? Nah, it was just a movie. Hurry up with those cartoons and the next feature film ‘projector man’.

    A few days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor on one of our “alley picking” excursions, we noticed there were boxes and piles of smashed crockery in the alleys. Some of it was broken but not all of it. Obviously the true “patriots” had thrown everything out of their houses that had been made in Japan or Germany. This act alone almost broke the back of the “Axis” armies and nearly ended the war right then. Unfortunately, nobody informed the enemy of this devastating attack and so to the delight of us kids, the war went on.

    Recycling was a thing we did long before the environmentalists came along. We would wash and flatten cans and put them at the curb for pickup. Now that a war was on the Japs could no longer use our cans to make toys. Instead we used them to help beat their little yellow asses along with those Nazi bastards. Cooking grease was saved in cans and reused. Newspapers, tinfoil, rubber of all kinds, scrap metal. If you could get it before the “sheeney” picked it up. People became fanatical savers. I saw a picture once of a man with a ball of tinfoil taller than his head. And “hoarding” became a dirty word during the war, almost worse than the black market, but everyone did it if they got a chance to stock up on any item.

    Kids took their dimes to school to buy Minuteman stamps and when the stamp book was full you converted it into a savings bond you could redeem after seven years for $25.00. We thought that was a great deal considering we only paid $17.50 for it. Working people had bonds deducted from their paychecks. My parents bought their first house using savings bonds as a down payment. The Horn of Plenty overflowed. All of the men had a job and even some of the women. A person could have two or three jobs if they wanted and could work 24 hours a day if they so desired. People had lots of money and not too much to spend it on.

    We were bombarded by the greatest propaganda machine the world has ever seen, except maybe the one Nazi Germany created. Propaganda came from all sides, newspapers, radio, signs, movies, speeches, parades, school and even the priest in church. After a short while, The American people absolutely despised the very thought of anything that remotely resembled a snaggle toothed, war mongering, baby killer, woman raper, Jap or Nazi. Japs were always little sawed off guys with buck teeth and thick glasses and the Germans were cruel and always stupid bullies who hollered “Achtung” a lot and clicked their heels together every time they stopped or started to walk. The British also clicked their heels but we forgave them for that.

    Nobody hated the Italians. They were so feeble and pathetic and the worst soldiers the world has ever seen! They didn’t want to fight in the war and they would surrender in such droves every time they saw the enemy that the “Allied” troops would run the other way so they wouldn’t have to take any new prisoners.

    I’m sorry to hear that. Depending upon your family’s views on “getting help” you might want to suggest her speaking to someone in grief counseling. With a miscarriage, she not only has the emotional trauma, but the hormones make your life hell for awhile. It’s like PMS

    “To avoid offending them, US commanders are putting troops through intense Muslim sensitivity training. Among other things, they’ve been ordered to:
    * Wear surgical gloves whenever handling a copy of the Koran.
    * Never walk in front of a praying Muslim.
    * Never show the bottom of boots while sitting or lying across from a Muslim, which in Islam is considered an insult.
    * Never share photos of wives or daughters.
    * Never smoke or eat in front of Muslims during the monthlong Ramadan fasting.
    * Avoid winking, cursing or nose-blowing in the presence of Muslims — all viewed as insults in Islam.
    * Avoid exiting the shower without a towel.
    * Avoid offering and accepting things with the left hand, which in Islam is reserved for bodily hygiene and considered unclean.

    When I decided to go into healthcare almost 20 years ago, I would have never imagined one of the biggest negatives would be working with some of the most idiotic liberals there are. Almost every nursing association heavily supports an extreme liberal agenda, and I refuse to participate in supporting the left. Today they went to far. The activities director scheduled the supervisor of elections to come to our place of business to sign up voters, which is fine with the exception they had ALL of the patients lined up, this includes patients that couldn’t tell you what they had for breakfast much less who was running for president. Many of them have dementia and severe cognitive deficits, yet all they had to do was state “yes” when they were asked if they were “mentally competent”. Way to go Team Obama”I don’t know if it will do any good but the supervisor of elections will be getting a call tomorrow.

    So, I made Mexican food the other night; Beans, Spanish Rice and chicken enchilladas. I know what I’m doing. Believe me. My Beans and Enchilladas are spectacular. No shit. The rice? Good flavor but Ive always had a problem with the moisture of it. Its supposed to be fluffy but ends upa tad sticky. Oh well. If anyone wants a great enchillada or bean recipe, let me know.

    Anywho, I had a friend over to sample my fiesta food. She brought beer. Bud lite for her and….Corona for me. I guess she was trying to keep up with the theme of Mexican night. Anywho, she left all the beer in my fridge that we didnt end up drinking. Since the Mariners are currently playing against the Angels, I decided to have a few Cornona…just 9 of them is all, for I had no Pabst in my fridge. Well, currently it is only the bottom of the 5th. I ran out of Corona, so I tried a Bud Lite. After Corona, Bud Lite tastes like there is a dollop of hand cream in it. Bud Light sucks. I can’t imagine how shitty Bud Lite would taste after drinking Pabst. I simply won’t go there.

    All of those beers you mentioned suck ass.

    As for your rice, put a tablespoon of oil or lard in a frying pan and brown the rice before you cook it. It’ll amaze you. I guarantee that’s the step you’re missing (I could never figure it out til I asked my sister-in-law after trying hers).

    Cumin and browning the rice. That WAS the difference!

  74. Bman says:

    Oh Nota…I know ALL about lard. That’s all I use in mexican Tex/Mex. I brown the rice….then put onions, garlic and celery in it, cook for a while…add the chicken broth and a tad of tomato sauce (for color mostly) bring it to a boil…and cook it like you would cook regular long grain rice. It tases great! But I want fluffy rice.

    Wait a second…I did mention Pabst in my last comment, right?

  75. Locke n Load says:

    Hey, if it works for Rice-a-Roni…
    Down here in true tex-mex land the rice is NEVER fluffy. Not browned either but sometimes lightly toasted if they make a small specialty batch. Instead of water use chicken stock and make sure to have a little tomato sauce/chopped tomato handy for color and tangy sweetness

    definately bastardization nota, roflmao. But then I don’t imagine you have any asian supermarkets nearby either..
    Those noodles are easy as hell to make if you have rice flour handy. We make several different asian noodles regularly and always use them immediately. Trick is the flour. asian flours are milled very fine so they make better dumpling skins (wheat flour) but my favorite noodles will always be the rice flour ones. Springy, not spongy.

    Chili and spaghetti is awesome! Cincinatti can call their Skyline brand chili but while I respectfully disagree with their labeling, I LOVE the stuff. Hints of Cinnamon in it.

    Bman, amaze your friends and learn to make a mexican style chili colorado. See if you can find chile peqin up there…

    While you’re at it, instead of rolling your enchiladas, try using fried corn tortillas and stack em like lasagna. you won’t know wtf hit ya

    Holy shit! Bman, who orignially showed you that style? As I understand it, its a Santa Fe style enchilada. I ONLY make them that way :)
    3 layers, just like mine…cheesey saucy crunchy heaven!
    I make 2-3 dozen at a crack on big bakery pans and freeze ‘em.

    Well Locke! This Hanyak has some Hispanic roots. My mom’s, sisters husband, (my uncle) his dad was born in Spain, his mom in Mexico, and he was born in New Mexico. I have a lot of hispanic cousins and so forth. I learne deverything I know from my mom, who learned it from her sister, who learned it from her husband and his family, Im sure. It’s all I know my man! Chili relleno is a real treat too. I’m telling ya, when you are in this neck of the woods, let me know. You won’t be sorry.

    Well there ya go, verifying my food trivia :) The NM link is established, lol.
    Chile Relleno is AWESOME but most folks up north wouldn’t know one from a stuffed jalepeno. Damnit man, had I known you dug this stuff I would have grabbed you some Hatch peppers, last of the season are out on the smokers and hanging in the twine. I was driving the area TODAY..
    Arrgh.
    Dude, I grow several different types of peppers down here (mexican and asian varieties) and dry them out for storage. You ought to see what jalepeno plants look like down here…bushes about 3-4ft tall and easily 3 ft diameter. I’m goin to plant a peqin bush and see if it handles the winters…if it does I’ll be dry storing gallon bags,lol.
