Never Send To Know For Whom The Bell Tolls; It Tolls For ONT

Hello fellow Hordians! I found this picture fascinating:


That last little bit is fanciful, of course. I'm not a mechanic, but even I can see that you couldn't start it up. The damn thing's obviously flooded.

Headline Of The Week

Naked man driving stolen school bus with dead deer inside leads police on chase

It's easy to be critical, of course, but I enjoin each of you to remember the words of Jesus from John 8:7.

Yeah, didn't think so.

Our Liberal Friends

It's not that they are ignorant; it's that so much of what they know isn't so

What we see in the chart is that 22% of liberals think that 10,000 or more unarmed black men are shot by police officers every year. Almost 55% believe that 1000 to 10 or more thousand are gunned down every year.

The answer is 12 in 2019, and 11 in 2020. That doesn’t equate to being a bit inaccurate. It is not being in the same universe as the truth.

Conservatives overestimate the numbers, although about half of them get it right and the rest are not nearly as wrong as the liberals.

Liberals know a lot, but so much of it is simply not true. In no universe is 12 close to 1000-10,000.

I saw another poll that asked what percentage of the population was gay. The most common answer from liberals was between 20-30% (I do not have a link, I am citing from memory). This is the flaw in our system as envisioned by the founders. They never dreamed of a society where the populace was not uninformed, but deliberately misinformed, by a media and educational bureaucracy perverted to perform the opposite of their intended functions.

By the way, the article title is from Reagan's famous “A Time for Choosing” speech, which is as relevant today as it was 60 years ago.

The Audacity Of Woke

The Audacity Of Woke

Which brings us to the current moment. At the tip of the cultural Marxist spear today is the trans cult, just as a year ago it was the racialist cult. Their presence is smothering in cultural spaces, by design. The political left, academia, big tech, and the corporate world, have all taken up the trans cause for the same reasons they took up the cause of BLM before it: to gather power, destroy norms, attack traditions, and create the conditions of tribalism that must exist before the collective comes together, of necessity, out of the ruins of everyone’s cancellation. The last man standing is the New Man, devoid of any potential to create cultural friction. He is the perfect servant to a benevolent master.
Where we once were able to conceive of fascism — or Statist authoritarianism — as an iron boot forever pressing on our necks, today it’s a Christian Louboutin red-bottomed pump, worn by a dude in a lace dress and zebra thong, we imagine stomping on our faces forever. Only we’re compelled to dig the kink.
The revolution will be accessorized. And you’ll learn to like it. Or else.

All of this is textbook Marxism. Going back to my comments on the first link, I wonder how things would be different if the education system actually taught this stuff, and trained people to recognize it?

The Fountains Of The Great Deep

Oh look, another scientific discovery that shows the Bible was right all along

There's a layer of earth called "ringwoodite" that has this type of rock that is holding tons of H20, but it's not in a solid, liquid, or gas form. It's some 4th molecular form trapped in the rock.
"The ringwoodite is like a sponge, soaking up water, there is something very special about the crystal structure of ringwoodite that allows it to attract hydrogen and trap water," said geophysicist Steve Jacobsen, who was part of the monumental discovery. "This mineral can contain a lot of water under conditions of the deep mantle."

Please note that this is not proof that Noah's flood happened, but it is evidence that the conditions of the flood as described in Genesis are well within the range of current scientific knowledge. IOW, a great flood is perfectly possible, and not necessarily an ancient fairy tale from peoples who had no knowledge of science.

Everything Old Is New Again

LBJ's stolen election

I’m sure you’ve heard people saying this before. Perhaps you’ve even said it yourself. ‘Those Democrats stole the election.’ And in this case, you’d be correct, but it’s probably not the election you’re thinking about. The Associated Press has an interesting walk down memory lane this week discovered in a set of tapes that were donated to the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library and Museum last summer. On the tapes, a former South Texas election judge told a reporter that the 1948 Texas Senate primary election was stolen in favor of LBJ and he described exactly how it was done. Democratic officials “found” some extra votes for Johnson in a box that became known as “box 13.” (Is any of this sounding familiar yet?) That allowed Johnson to move on to win the general election, ascend to the Senate, and eventually the presidency.

Again, another example of the left doing the same things, over and over. Why? Because they work. Generally speaking, I think the right has a better grasp of human nature than the left, but where the left excels is at understanding human weaknesses, particularly among groups of people or societies, and boy do they exploit them for all they're worth.

Clothes Maketh The Man

No. Medieval Armies didn't look like Highschool Theatre Productions

This is an interesting article about something completely foreign to modern folks: clothes. No, I'm not talking about OnlyFans, but the sheer, mind boggling abundance of clothing that we enjoy without a second thought.

Medieval clothing existed in an era before modern artificial dyes, before modern texture fabrication or even the Cotton Gin, before modern detergents!

Most people in the medieval world owned one, maybe two, outfits if they were wealthy.

It would take days or weeks of an individual weaver’s effort to make the fabric sufficient for an outfit, the tailors might take another week.


You can read novels from the 18th and 19th century, or hell even the early 20th, where the poor and destitute are literally Threadbare, their one outfit’s threads have started to give way and their ass is hanging out. And the poor would just go around like that… for months or years until they finally got enough money to Cloth themselves, or more likely, they died.

If you want to imagine the medieval or even early modern world… just imagine the modern third world if they weren’t receiving the trade, scraps, and charity of wealthier countries.
The average person was buying a new outfit maybe every 5-10 years! And they were wearing that outfit everyday, in all weather, for all work.

I often find that it's by looking at common, mundane items from the past where it's easiest to start to understand how different things were from today, along with what the poorest among us have today that the top elites lacked in the past. We're less than 100 years from the son of the President of the United States dying from a blister on his foot, and today the working class has access to million dollar operating suites and the services of Hopkins trained surgeons. Truly a different world.

Dudes Being Dudes

The structure they're dropping the rock into was identified as a gasometer or gas holder (a structure used to regulate pressure in gas lines, a large space, the volume of which could be changed (by expansion and contraction of the size of the space) to effect such regulation). I remember when they imploded one that had stood next to TV Hill in Baltimore since the 1930s about a decade back. I suppose if you had a large lid that could move up and down in the hole it would work, but that doesn't seem right to me. Most gas holders were large, above ground structures that looked like fat silos or oil tanks. Anyone know what the hole could be? By the timing of the fall (7.5 seconds) it would be somewhere between 7-800 feet deep.
