Today is The Game, played this year at The Bowl.

I don't think they reverted to flag football yet, but with all the SJW crap at both universities they might.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Repeating from end of previous thread:

Jane,


I use Firefox through a third party called "Swagbucks" which my grandson clued me into. (It's a place where you get points for surveys and purchases, etc.)

Anyway, on my screen I get the original page, and to the right at the top next to the tab is a plus sign, which when I click on it lets me go to a new page while the other remains open.

I don't know if your page shows the same configuration, but if there is a plus sign next to a tab, click on that and it should work.

Is there a KickStarter or GoFundMe?

Yeah, what is with Twitter? I don't see tons of people I follow, unless I actively go to them, and I too get the repeats MM noted.

Iggy,

From last night:

Same with wild horses and burros. They displace native wild animals and destroy range but any attempt to remove or limit them is met with immoral moral outrage.

My oldest BIL who I worked for every summer growing up, was a true horse whisperer and in his later years would cry at the thought of the wild horses that died a long and miserable death because of the do-gooders who wiped out the dog food operations and any attempt to manage the hearts in a humane way.

Unless Soros is mainlining Amish whole blood I think he is not long for this world. Of course the blood would vaporize in his veins as he is Satan's spawn.

As to the NLF did anyone see any articles on the boycott last week? I never did. Strange......

Anyone notice the Pope's latest pronunciamato on global warning. I understand that he is contemplating setting up the Congregation for Environmental Protection next. Sheesh...

His next encyclical would be titled "Sol Calidus" ( The Sun is Hot) if he had any sense.

I am not surprised but am, of course, disgusted that there is an agent who is known as the "sherpa of the political elite."

What I got from reading between the lines is that you are not going to get a gig or book deal unless you are willing to trash President Trump.

All I have to say is Regnery should carve out a nice slot with book contracts with people like Spicer.

I also think a coffee table book of the campaign with lots of photos and interviews not only with famous people but the grass roots folks and the people like the Reddit guys would be a big seller.

Not saying I agree, but it's there.

Rocco

If there's a Firefox icon in your taskbar, click on it and you should see all of your open pages. And I think the Last Page thing is working again?

Man Tran

MM and others, I've mentioned it before, but you should really try Opera. I just cleaned up my session which has been open for at least 10 yrs and culled the open tabs from ~150 down to a more normal 70 or so. Ctl-t gets you a new tab, 1 and 2 keys move you left/right in which tab, x and z keys move you forward and back in if you drill down in one page. There's a button on the right that drops down to select a tab that is too small to read at the top. And if you want, you can drag tabs around to group them.

Most of the other browsers copy Opera improvements like the ctl-t function.

Oh, and how do you keep them open for 10 yrs? Just close it out and reopen. Never had it crash and lose anything. If there is a complaint, it can become a memory hog, if you are running through a lot of tabs. When that happens, just close and reopen.

On November 18, 1983, "A Christmas Story" opened in theaters across the country.

This movie is a particular favorite of mine because so much of it reflects the Christmases of my childhood, including the decor, the Santaland, the next door neighbor's dogs, etc.

I wil have to see if it is available on Netflix this month.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Man Tran,

Thanks for that information. I felt smug when I downloaded Firefox, but the more they improve the less useful it seems to be.

I may try that out next week when I have some time.

There is always somebody who can use the food if you don't eat it yourself. If you donate the meat to someone in need, you can blunt the argument against hunting.

Thomas Collins

Thanks for the links, JimNorCal. By the way, there is an interesting article on the front page of today's WSJ about a chess amateur arranging a game with Magnus Carlsen, the current world champ.

Henry,

What is your lever action -06? Marlin is my guess in that they seemed to get bigger rounds in than others. My only deer rifle ( not counting the ARs!) is my dad's .300 Savage. They had the best solution for pointy bullets not bumping primers in front.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Tom Bowler,

This is true. We used to get donated venison at the food pantry I used to volunteer at and it was welcomed by the people who needed meat.

Rocco

Granted we don't have to hunt to survive any longer, but that doesn't change the fact that man as a species are predators. Like all preditors, our eyes are on the front of our head so we can see the prey we're hunting. Unlike the prey animals who have eyes on the side of their heads to see the preditor coming. That hunting instinct is bred into us and I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I feel that urge to hunt.

Captain Hate

On topic: Roger Goodell has never worked outside of the NFL. Leaving aside what a blinkered view of the world that produces, he has been rewarded abundantly for making bad decisions. That isn't so much a subjective view as it is one based on him constantly reversing himself after receiving poor publicity such as the Ray Rice case.

The current gaggle of owners have created this situation by hiring him and rewarding him copiously. In addition they've undermined the integrity of the game. Jerry Jones is one of the few that sees this clearly.

Jane - not "in"

Jane, the idiot, just figured it out. Thanks

Frau Skt. Hubertus

Beasts - my friends at Smith Lake might not like your sending henry 'Bama Bambis. I've eaten venison they freeze and enjoy all year. Took me a while to figure out why so many stores were selling deer pellets.

"Good Hill Hunting" episode:
"MAN: No more hunting permits this year.
HANK: Why not? There are still plenty of deer out there. I caught one picking through my garbage like this was New York City.
MAN: I know. They're a real nuisance. They're eating everything in sight.
HANK: Well, of course. There's too many deer and not enough food. Issue more permits or they'll all starve.
MAN: We had to limit hunting permits to 400 this year. It was the only way we could get those environmentalists off their hunger strike.
HANK: You're telling me my boy can't go on his first hunt because you wouldn't let a bunch of twig-boys starve? "

Jane - not "in"

No MM, I knew about that. It was too dumb to explain.

Frau Skt. Hubertus

Miss M - maybe there will be a 24-hour "Christmas Story" marathon again this year. I watched last year and so did Clarice.

rich,

I don't care if Gloria Allred drags 50 women out with their crumpled Kleenexes.

Since we all have been expecting it, I am sure President trump has as well, and is ten steps ahead of them.

Hannity said on Twitter a bunch of stuff would start happening on Monday and to hang tight, so we will see.

boris

In most states natural predators have been eliminated, which is good for pets and livestock. Not so good for natural prey.

Natural prey animals will overpopulate and become pests and/or suffer starvation and diseases.

In some areas state government has to hire sharpshooters at taxpayer expense to cull deer herds.

IMO better when taxpayers are willing to provide the service themselves.

JimNorCal

"natural predators have been eliminated"

Where I live coyotes are becoming more bold, less secretive. Our HOA management says to keep watch over pets, not to leave pet food outdoors and that coyotes are "natural". But I fear the liability if Grandma or Junior are found half consumed one day.

rich

Hannity gave us another tick-tock. ho-hum, but really wish ALL-RED would go away.

JimNorCal

Already posted but I smiled at this commenter's take.

Don’t know if you saw this, but an Ohio state supreme court justice (Democrat) is running for governor , claims to have had sex with over 50 women and is naming names.

So, here are three ground rules for the rest of the semester.
1. The only “ism” I ever want to come out your mouth is a syllogism. If I catch you using an “ism” or its analogous “ist” — racist, classist, etc. — then you will not be permitted to continue speaking until you have first identified which “ism” you are guilty of at that very moment. You are not allowed to fault others for being biased or privileged until you have first identified and examined your own biases and privileges.
2. If I catch you this semester using the words “fair,” “diversity,” or “equality,” or a variation on those terms, and you do not stop immediately to explain what you mean, you will lose your privilege to express any further opinions in class until you first demonstrate that you understand three things about the view that you are criticizing.
3. If you ever begin a statement with the words “I feel,” before continuing you must cluck like a chicken or make some other suitable animal sound.
********************************
To their credit, the students received the speech well. And so far this semester, only two students have been required to cluck like chickens.

henry

Man Tran, my 30-06 is a Browning BLR. Has a box mag. Also I have a supply of Hornady Leverevolution ammo, pointy nylon tips for tubes.

Man Tran

Henry, cool!

Looks like the stock and back part of the receiver emulate an old Winchester. The lever must swing pretty far to get that big cartridge in and out. The only downside to the Savage was emptying the internal magazine.

henry

Yes, big swing on the lever. Very smooth action. Also I have a takedown model, easier to transport.

We have mountain lions, coyotes, deer, bobcats and all sorts of critters. Just try shooting one around here.

You are allowed to discharge 3 shots to scare coyotes away, from my understanding. We had half a dozen Barney Fifes and a helicopter when someone discharged 5 shots a couple of months back.

One doesn't really ask what is in one's gun safe if not volunteered around here.

We get black tail deer, but it's hardly worth hunting them.And as of 1 January there's some cockamamie rule on shooting on public land that is coming out. PRC; the people's Republic of California; Gateway to Zimbabwe.

Man U is beating the Geordies. That's the important news.

We have a plethora of lizards on the property and the hounds keep on digging things up. Can someone come out and rid me of these meddlesome reptiles?

Speaking of which we had a possum in the garage not too long ago when we lived in the flatlands and I called animal control, who referred me to the possum lady, who was of no use at all. So I put on a jacket and pair of gloves and cornered the creepy neolithic little bastard and grabbed him by the tail and tossed him out of the yard.

Deer? We are overrun with white tails. Until we put up a higher deer fence, we had as many as 4 in the backyard. There is a lot beside us in the back that is overgrown with vegetation and they seem to live there. Used to come into our yard for the apple and pear trees.

When you go down to the beach in the morning, you'll find deer tracks up and down the dunes and beach. Driving is dangerous in the village because they will run across the streets 4 to 6 at a time. They tried to pass a culling law but got shut down by the watermelons.

BAD PARROT

A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary.

Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious, and laced with profanity.

John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music, and anything else he could think of to 'clean up' the bird's vocabulary.

Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even more rude. John, in desperation, threw up his hands, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed.

Then, suddenly, there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute.

Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arm and said, "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions, and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude.

As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird spoke up and in a very soft voice said,

"May I ask what the turkey did?"

Happy Thanksgiving!
