Thursday Night Overnight Open Thread (11/03/16) [Mis. Hum.]

thurs ont above fold.jpg

Welcome to the Thursday Night Overnight Open Thread where the staff and management is already in Friday and/or weekend mode. Hope you are too.

Just remember tomorrow, November 4th is National Stress Awareness Day.

Is tomorrow your payday Friday? When you look at your paystub and notice the obscene amount of money withheld remember one thing. On this day in 1913 the United States introduced the income tax. Talk about stress awareness.

3 Nov, 1913 U.S.A. -- First Income Tax The first American citizens receive information over the new national income tax. A married man living with his wife, who is in receipt of an income of $5,000 pays $10 a year and if his income is $10,000 he pays $60 per year.

One of the first minimum wage laws was introduced and passed in Oregon that year.

As part of the legislation an Industrial Welfare Commission was established to ascertain and declare what this all meant. They declared: 50 hour weeks, 9 hour days, 45 minute lunch breaks, and a weekly wage of not less than $8.64

Official tables on the median wage for 1913 are scarce. Considering wages are taxed at the first $5,000 they would have been considered the rich. More than likely the average wage then was in the area of $3,000.

My how things have changed in 103 years.

When you're kicking back in weekend mode tomorrow on the Job. Be careful. You may not want to be on your personal cell phone. There is a fake HP printer that is an actual office camouflaged cellular eavesdropping device.

The ONT rant.

Hillary Clinton has been affiliated with sleaze for years. It was not proven, but you known damn well she unethically enriched herself with Cattle Futures and White Whitewater land deals. The 90s saw her stealing White House property when her and Bill left. And the 2000s, well here we are, claims of theft from the State Department, bribery, criminal dissemination of confidential documents and obstruction of justice.

Is Hillary to crooked to lead, or is she too stupid to lead?

The argument from Team Trump in the closing days of the election is that Hillary Clinton is too corrupt to rule. He’s painting her as the face of the larger problem, which is the metastasizing corruption of the ruling class. It’s a good closing argument and it resonates, but the reason Hillary should not rule is she is dangerously incompetent and she surrounds herself with outlandishly stupid people. A society can survive crooked rulers, but it cannot survive stupid ones. Hillary Clinton is too stupid to rule.

Will a country survive a crooked leader? Or will it survive a stupid leader? Countries may survive a crooked leader. But they are not republics such as ours. The Horde can name countries led by each. The election of Hillary Clinton will more than likely cause a constitutional crisis. Nixon's crime was a cover up of a crime he did not participate in or have knowledge of at the time of the crime. The same can't be said for Hillary. She's crooked. She's sleazy. No way does her unethical behavior end when inaugurated in January.

Rant done.


The intent of the ONT was not to be dominated by sex. But, holy crap there is a lot of sex news in the news. So, lets roll with it.

There is sex education in elementary school. There is sex education in middle school/junior high. There is sex education in high school. There are advertisements on radio and television which address sex education. By God, I'm glad that transgendered Latina women are being taught sex education. We all know that common sense is no longer common. And that money grows on trees.


Fawn Liebowitz and her sophmore class during a sex education class.

As a man, as a husband and father your humble COB believed he knew just about everything when it comes to sex. Oh boy, was I wrong. Are you an ecosexual? Do you know an ecosexual? Do you even know what an ecosexual is?

Ecosexuality is a term with wide-ranging definitions, which vary depending on who you ask. Amanda Morgan, a faculty member at the UNLV School of Community Health Sciences who is involved in the ecosexual movement, says that ecosexuality could be measured in a sense not unlike the Kinsey Scale: On one end, it encompasses people who try to use sustainable sex products, or who enjoy skinny dipping and naked hiking. On the other are "people who roll around in the dirt having an orgasm covered in potting soil," she said. "There are people who fuck trees, or masturbate under a waterfall."

You folks probably remember that ITT closed their doors last month. 130 centers of higher education closed. Why?

Well, they won’t be getting on with it anymore, because on Aug. 25 the Secretary of Education invoked something called the “Gainful Employment Rule,” decreed in 2014, invented out of thin air, designed to punish schools offering courses in “occupations for which there are simply no job opportunities,” leading to “crushing student loan debt.” Students at the 130 schools of ITT Tech would no longer be eligible for federally backed student loans or federal scholarships. ITT would be required to put up hundreds of millions in cash to cover the possibility of future loan defaults. Decreed. Done. Over

Now tell us how a major in ecosexuality doesn't qualify as an occupation where there are no job opportunities? Suppose there isn't much debt getting that degree either? God forbid the government monopoly higher education gulags face any competition.

Men should look at the fine print. Men's Warehouse? No. Men's Wearhouse. Yes. Stay away from the Warehouse in Hialeah, FL.

Mangling a man’s penis during a botched illegal surgery will cost a Hialeah woman 40 months behind bars.

Nery Carvajal Gonzalez, 39, pleaded guilty on Wednesday for her role in two ill-fated penis enhancement procedures that took place inside a Hialeah warehouse in 2014 and 2015..............

According to prosecutors, Schreiber’s remedy was to tell the man to tie two popsicle sticks his penis to keep it straight while it healed.

Popsicle jokes commence.

How logical are you?

C'mon it's Thursday night. Play along. If you don't Yoko can always make an appearance.

Since we are on an educational kick at the moment How well do you know the 1960's Beatnik Glossary? Grades will be issued on a crazy curve, Daddy-O. Dig?


Advertising gone wrong. Bad logos.

Are you a prompt individual? Are you tardy on occasion? Are you terminally late for everything? Chronically late people all have some important traits in common.

Are you combat ready? Combat readiness and physical fitness. 1969 Army FM21-20 Physical Readiness Training.

Fast forward to 2016, Defense Secretary Ash Carter proposes to relax the military's recruiting standards.

Funny how pro-athletes are taller, bigger than the athletes of 1969. But the kids of today are fatter and less in shape than kids of that year.

The trial of Richard Vallieres, alleged Maple Syrup Kingpin.

No he wasn't arrested at St. Alfonzo's Pancake House. Nor was there margarine involved. Maple syrup=Big bucks in Canada.

Private sector monopolies and collusion, BAD. The funny thing about the merger between AT&T and DirectTV it was approved by the federal government. Are there going to be any firings over this? I didn't so either.

Is anyone who works for the federal government held accountable for any error? From the Obamacare website debacle, to the unwarranted deaths of V.A. patients denied treatment on a timely basis, no one is held accountable. And quite frankly it appears it will get worse before even approach getting better.

Government monopolies and collusion, GOOD.

Solar shingles? No word on cost or effectiveness in snow country or in the land of cloud cover. When half your roof is covered with snow for months. The sun is something you remember from a past season. Fossil fuel applications for the win!!!!

Genius Award Winner, 1st Runner Up.

Genius Award Winner. Yes Virginia. There are really such dumbf*cks who walk among us.

Good news story of the day. Once in awhile good people in bad countries succeed. The world still isn't breaking down the walls to immigrate to Cuba.
