For Once I Am Glad I Work Swingshift

I won't have to put up with the bullshit, waste of fucking time, Presidential debate.
Nor any of the complete waste of air and electrons horse shit responses of the Chattering Class.

I'm sure it will dominate the news tomorrow but tonight I will be sweating and working to try and make a living in this completely FUBAR economy we have. Nothing any one has to say about anything is going to change that reality anytime soon.

You think I'm kidding?

This Gender Identity Crisis Bullshit Is Getting Out Of Hand

Stop and wrap your head around this one, Bull Dyke Lions.

Five wild lionesses grow a mane and start acting like males

By Karl Gruber

This lion king (pictured above) is a queen. And she’s not the only one.

Five lionesses in Botswana have grown a mane and are showing male-like behaviours. One is even roaring and mounting other females.

Male lions are distinguished by their mane, which they use to attract females, and they roar to protect their territory or call upon members of their pride. Females lack a mane and are not as vocal.

But sometimes lionesses grow a mane and even behave a bit like males. However, until now, reports of such maned lionesses have been extremely rare and largely anecdotal. We knew they existed, but little about how they behave.

Now, Geoffrey D. Gilfillan at the University of Sussex in Falmer, UK, and colleagues have reported five lionesses sporting a mane at the Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana’s Okavango delta.

Gilfillan started studying these lionesses back in March 2014, and for the next two years he focused on recording the behaviour of one of them, called SaF05. She had an underdeveloped mane and was larger than most females.

“While SaF05 is mostly female in her behaviour – staying with the pride, mating males – she also has some male behaviours, such as increased scent-marking and roaring, as well as mounting other females,” says Gilfillan.

“Although females do roar and scent-mark like males, they usually do so less frequently,” he says. “SaF05, however, was much more male-like in her behaviour, regularly scent-marking and roaring.”

A likely explanation is an increased level of testosterone as these lionesses mature, says Luke Hunter, president and chief conservation officer at the global wild cat conservation organisation Panthera.

In lions, testosterone directly affects the development of manes. Castrated males, for example, lose their ability to produce testosterone and promptly lose their mane, too.

In 2011, a captive lioness called Emma at the National Zoological Gardens of South Africa developed a mane. Tests revealed high levels of testosterone due to a problem in her ovaries, and once they were removed she reverted to a typical lioness.

The idea that testosterone is implicated in the Botswana lionesses is also backed by observations of their reproductive success, says Kathleen Alexander at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg.

“While some of the maned lionesses were observed mating, none of them became pregnant, suggesting they are infertile, a known consequence of high levels of androgens such as testosterone in females,” she says. “The behavioural changes suggest this is likely the case.”

Hunter suspects this explanation applies to the animals studied by Gilfillan and his colleagues. “Given all five known maned females come from the Okavango region, there must be a genetic component in this population underlying the phenomenon,” he says.

I'll guarantee you one thing, they take a piss wherever the hell they want to.

Hillary Dispatching Her Flying Monkeys On Line.

Go ahead and bring that fucking shit right the fuck here, right the fuck now.
I would love nothing better than to metaphorically eviscerate some paid fucking lackeys trying to defend that lawless bitch. I will say up front that they are taking an ass beating on line obviously and it's some desperate shit they are having to resort to with this crap.
The best part is that they are pissing money into the wind with it.

If You Criticize Hillary Online Be Prepared to Confront One of Her Paid Trolls

A PAC that supports Hillary Clinton is preparing to launch an online campaign to fight people who criticize her. This is part of the ongoing Democratic strategy to stifle free speech and harass critics.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

Be nice to Hillary Clinton online — or risk a confrontation with her super PAC

When the Internet’s legions of Hillary hecklers steal away to chat rooms and Facebook pages to vent grievances about Clinton, express revulsion toward Clinton and launch attacks on Clinton, they now may find themselves in a surprising place – confronted by a multimillion dollar super PAC working with Clinton.

Hillary Clinton’s well-heeled backers have opened a new frontier in digital campaigning, one that seems to have been inspired by some of the Internet’s worst instincts. Correct the Record, a super PAC coordinating with Clinton’s campaign, is spending some $1 million to find and confront social media users who post unflattering messages about the Democratic front-runner.

In effect, the effort aims to spend a large sum of money to increase the amount of trolling that already exists online.

The plan comes as Clinton operatives grapple with the reality that her supporters just aren’t as engaged and aggressive online as are her detractors inside and outside the Democratic Party.

The lack of engagement is one of Clinton’s bigger tactical vulnerabilities, particularly when compared with rivals like Donald Trump, whose viral social media attacks are legion, and Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is backed by a passionate army of media-savvy millennials.

Some experts on digital campaigns think the idea of launching a paid army of “former reporters, bloggers, public affairs specialists, designers” and others to produce online counterattacks is unlikely to prove successful. Others, however, say Clinton has little choice but to try, given the ubiquity of online assaults and the difficulty of squelching even provably untrue narratives once they have taken hold.

At the same time, however, using a super PAC to create a counterweight to movements that have sprung up organically is another reflection of the campaign’s awkwardness with engaging online, digital pros said.

Keep this in mind the next time you’re reading the comments on YouTube or Reddit.

So Long Summer

Another one in the books.
It's stating to get chilly around here, especially at night.
I keep telling people that most gorgeous weather around here is in the month of September.
It usually doesn't get too hot but it does get sunny and just beautiful around here. You still won't find this anywhere near here though.

I think we have a couple of days of decent weather coming up but for all intents and purposes, Summer is all done.

Yahoo Had 500 Million Accounts Breached in 2014 And Are Just Now Telling Us About It.

Good Lord, you would think something as big as that outfit would have top of the line security.You would also think they would have figured out that they got hacked two fucking years ago.

Sigh, time to go change my password at yet another place. I have a secondary Email account there that I use for crap that I don't want to deal with constantly like on line games and such.

Yahoo says 500 million accounts stolen

Yahoo (YHOO, Tech30) confirmed on Thursday data "associated with at least 500 million user accounts" have been stolen in what may be one of the largest cybersecurity breaches ever.
The company said it believes a "state-sponsored actor" was behind the data breach, meaning an individual acting on behalf of a government. The breach is said to have occurred in late 2014.
"The account information may have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (the vast majority with bcrypt) and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers," Yahoo said in a statement.
Yahoo urges users to change their password and security questions and to review their accounts for suspicious activity.
The silver lining for users -- if there is one -- is that sensitive financial data like bank account numbers and credit card data are not believed to be included in the stolen information, according to Yahoo.
Yahoo says it is working with law enforcement on the breach.
A large-scale data breach was first rumored in August when a hacker who goes by the name of "Peace" claimed to be selling data from 200 million Yahoo users online. The same hacker has previously claimed to sell stolen accounts from LinkedIn (LNKD, Tech30) and MySpace.
Yahoo originally said it was "aware of a claim" and was investigating the situation. Nearly two months later, it turns out the situation is even worse.

It's like getting robbed and then two years later finding your stuff for sale in a pawn shop.

Bring On The Pain

I have a two hour dentist appointment here in a few for a deep cleaning.
You haven't lived until you have had that shit done.
I have literally had root canals done that didn't hurt as much as that shit after they get done poking, prodding, scraping and chipping away.
It just makes your whole mouth flare up in pain just as soon as the novacain wears off. That usually happens about twenty minutes after you leave.

I swear they know just how much to shoot ya up with so that you get at least ten miles away from their asses before that shit wears off so that the urge to strangle someone is overwhelmed by the urge to just get home and find some kind of relief.

Of course they don't give you anything for pain so the plan is, get my narrow ass home ASAP, wait for that stuff to wear off and then see how bad it is. If it gets to be too damn miserable then I am going to go take a huge slug of Nyquil and just knock myself the fuck out.I had to work late again last night and then get up early to go help someone out to finish what I was doing last week so I'm fucking tired already as it is, at least I was smart enough to take the day off. I've had maybe five and a half hours of sleep.
They are supposed to finish up with their torture just about the time I was supposed to start work and I said fuck that noise, I'm not going to try and go to work and spit blood all night while my whole face is pounding in pain.

This is just the warm up too, they said that there are a couple of back teeth that need to go, on top of the one in front that broke off, the fake tooth right next to it that snapped in half and a few thousand bucks worth of implants and other shit they want to do.
I hate dentists with a white hot passion but they are a necessary evil I suppose.

So now that I am done whining and bitching for the moment, take a peek at this video, I get the biggest kick out of it and I thought it was spot on, the name of the band is Pain and the lyrics are wipe your own ass and SHUT YOUR MOUTH!


Want to see a dentist's wet dream?

Notice the pins up top, the one in the middle broken clear off, it looks to me like another one in front is broken too. Told ya I have had some teeth knocked out of my head. They had to put posts in the broken teeth and then put crowns on them. The fake tooth in the front on top is the results of that tooth getting broken off twice and now even the crown has broken in half.
See the bottom molars look like they are tilted forward?
I had to have the teeth right in front of them yanked years ago because they were squeezed so bad that they grew in sideways.
Massive fillings and the crowns are the cherries on top.

I don't like dentists for a reason, several actually.

Right now I am waiting for the novacain to wear off, they only did one side of my mouth today so I have to go back in a month for the other half to get done.
Sadistic bastards like to deliver the pain in installments.

Update 2
Oh yeah baby, the novacain is starting to wear off and my gums are already throbbing like a sick chickens ass.

U-2 Spy Plane Crashes In Northern California, Both Pilots Ejected

I had no idea any of those things were still operational, I saw one in an Air Museum last year over in Oregon where the Spruce Goose is being displayed.

U-2 spy plane crashes in Northern California, ejecting 2 pilots

Updated 12:10 pm, Tuesday, September 20, 2016

A U-2 military spy plane crashed Tuesday morning in Sutter County after two pilots ejected from the cockpit, U.S. Air Force officials said.
Officials at Beale Air Force Base east of Marysville — where the two-seat training plane was from — didn’t immediately have further information, saying only that the plane went down about 9 a.m. shortly after takeoff.

The plane was in the middle of a training exercise, said Brooke Brzozowske, a spokeswoman for the Air Force.
The crash happened in the area of West Butte and Pass roads, according to KCRA, in the Sutter Buttes, a remote area of volcanic domes formed about 1.5 million years ago. The crash site is about 50 miles north of Sacramento.

The Air Combat Command tweeted that the area isn’t populated and that initial reports indicated the pilots landed safely, but later said there wasn’t confirmation on the pilots’ conditions.
The last U-2 plane that crashed out of Beale was in 1996, when the aircraft landed in a busy commercial area of Oroville, killing the pilot and a person on the ground.
U-2s can reach speeds in excess of 400 mph and fly as high as 70,000 feet, or more than 13 miles.

Is It Just Me Or Is There A Whole Lot Of Really Stupid People In This Country?

I mean, there has to be if Obama thinks anyone is going to believe this line of Horseshit.

NEW YORK – President Barack Obama on Sunday praised Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for her intellect, fortitude and "unerring" judgment and blasted "the other guy," Republican Donald Trump, on his New York home turf as unqualified to be president and uninterested in learning enough to make the hard decisions the job requires.

Obama addressed a dinner crowd of about 65 people at a fundraiser at the Gramercy Park home of restaurateur Danny Meyer and his wife, Audrey. Attendees contributed $25,000. Event co-chairs gave $100,000, while chairs raised or contributed $250,000, officials said. Proceeds will benefit the Democratic National Committee, state parties and the Clinton campaign.

"This is somebody who is smart, who is tough and, most importantly, cares deeply about making sure that this country works for everybody and not just a few," Obama said of Clinton. "And she's displayed it again and again and again. And when I said that I think she is somebody who is as qualified as any individual who has ever run for this office, I meant it."

Obama said Clinton has been disciplined and extraordinarily effective in every job she's held.

"And then there's the other guy," he said, drawing laughter. "You all know him because he's from New York. Some of you may have done business with him. If you have, it doesn't sound like it's been a pleasant experience."

Let's not mince any words here OK?

The woman belongs in fucking jail, period.

Mr. Obama is flirting with accessory after the fact if he keeps this shit up in my opinion.

We all know politicians lie but even if the FBI has declined to prosecute, there are still investigations pending.
Some people act like the results of those investigations are already in and she is going t skate away.

What a surprise that would be.

Never Trust Anyone Who Hasn’t Been Punched in the Face

I don't often link to pieces like this but there is much truth contained therein.

A lot of what is wrong with this country and the current crop of males in certain other countries, can be found there.

After you read that I want you to remember a few things about me.

I have had my nose broken nine times and have had teeth knocked out of my head more than once.

I have had a German Luger pointed at my head by a scared old man from six inches away who's hands were shaking so badly I knew I was a goner except I was fast enough to knock his hand away.

I have been in over fifty car wrecks and ten motorcycle accidents.

Had to have my lower back fused thirty years ago after the last one.

Three days after major surgery they fitted me with a custom back brace that I still have and I got up later that day and snuck out of the hospital to a store three blocks away. Uphill in San Francisco and back again to get cigarettes and booze. It was a steep hill too.
Those nurses freaked the fuck out when I sauntered back in past the nurses desk with my arms full of grocery bags.
I came back in the wrong door.

I have had my head pounded on the edge of a curb and have been beaten so badly that blood leaked out of the corner of my eye for three days and half of my face turned black and blue.
I have played tackle football with no pads and no helmets against guys twice my size, on the front line.

The list goes on and on and on, I could write a book and no one would believe some of the shit I have done.
In short, even though I have always been very skinny and have had my ass kicked from here to breakfast and back more times than I care to remember, no one will ever be able to call me a pussy, because I'm not.

Sure, talk is cheap, especially on the internet but I have the scars, the witnesses and the medical records to prove it.

Now we have an entire generation of kids who piss down their legs when you say something they don't like and have to run to their little Safe Space because they can't deal with controversy.
They are doomed.
