Welcome Back My Friends, The ONT, It Never Ends

I'm so glad you could attend, come inside, come inside! Well, Thanksgiving is in the rear view mirror, which means we're now officially in Christmas season! Hate to break it to ya, but we're 25 days from Christmas.



Happy birthday Jesus.jfif


Axe Guy Or Sword Guy?

So, this has been bouncing around social media this week. Who wins here?

Axe guy or sword guy.jfif

Axe guy has the advantage, by design. The staircase design allows him to swing his weapon freely while sword guy has to contend with the center pillar of the staircase when swinging his weapon. Axe guy has the high ground. Axe guy can deliver a powerful kick, tumbling sword guy down the stairs. All the advantages belong to axe guy.

But...

Sword guy has a weapon that can deliver lethal damage buy thrusting. Is that enough? We can't see axe guy's legs, but if they are lightly armored, a thrust to the calves could incapacitate, a stab through the femoral artery would be fatal. So place your bets: Who wins this encounter?

* Some wag in the cheap sets shouts out “Crossbow guy!” He's immediately attacked by another wag promoting longbow guy. A fight ensues *

Ignore those Morons.

'Alcohol-fueled incident' reportedly led to Corey Perry's release by Blackhawks

According to the report, it’s unclear exactly where the incident took place.

However, a report later Wednesday from Daily Faceoff reporter Frank Seravalli suggested booze might have been involved.

Citing sources, Daily Faceoff said an “alcohol-fueled incident involving Perry” was alleged to have happened during “an event that included corporate partners and team employees in attendance.”

I don't know what happened, but I did want to note the event, because this is the first time in recorded history that a hockey player has acted out due to alcohol consumption. So it's noteworthy.


Ssssssmokin'!

Question for the Horde. I have an old upright freezer that's given up the ghost. I was planning on hauling it to the dump, but my wife said “Make it into a giant smoker”. I can see how to do it, it wouldn't be hard – attach a firebox to the bottom and add a stovepipe to the top – but I'm wondering if the interior, which seems to be some type of plastic, and the gaskets could handle the 200-250 degree heat you'd get in a smoker. Anyone got any input?

Cross-country skier Remi Lindholm suffers frozen penis in mass start race


The men’s 50km mass start race at the Beijing Games was shortened to 30km but that did little to help Finland’s Remi Lindholm, who needed a heat pack at the end of the race to thaw out a particularly sensitive body part.

Lindholm spent just under an hour and 16 minutes traversing the course in howling, freezing winds, leading to his penis becoming frozen for the second time in a cross-country skiing race following a similar incident in Ruka, Finland last year.
“You can guess which body part was a little bit frozen when I finished (the men’s Olympic 50km race) … it was one of the worst competitions I’ve been in. It was just about battling through,” he told Finnish media.

Every man reading this just nervously crossed their legs.

Islamism is a failed ideology. Muslims must embrace the West

Our Westernized life copied consumerism but left out values such as liberty, freedom, and equality. The result was a society that was Western on the outside but backward and tribal on the inside. Our societies produced states that were in our image: Sovereign on the outside but failing on the inside.

State failure gave rise to nativist Islamism. Islam the religion we already practised. The new brand was Islamism, in which Islam decided – not only our spiritual and social lives – but all other aspects of our lives, including government, politics, economics and military. In Islamism, the West stopped being a model worth emulating and became a punching bag on which Islamist movements blamed our failure.

Islamism argued that our countries were not backward because we didn’t emulate the West enough, but because we imitated the West too much. We had abandoned our orthodox Islamic creed, under pressure from the imperial West, whose plan was to make us abandon our religion and spread its own – materialism and Christianity. To fix our countries and beat the West, Islamism said that we had to revive Islam the exact same way it was practiced in the seventh century

The Franco-English writer Hilaire Belloc said this about the difference between the barbarian and the civilized man:

The Barbarian hopes — and that is the mark of him, that he can have his cake and eat it too. He will consume what civilization has slowly produced after generations of selection and effort, but he will not be at pains to replace such goods, nor indeed has he a comprehension of the virtue that has brought them into being. Discipline seems to him irrational, on which account he is ever marveling that civilization, should have offended him with priests and soldiers.... In a word, the Barbarian is discoverable everywhere in this, that he cannot make: that he can befog and destroy but that he cannot sustain; and of every Barbarian in the decline or peril of every civilization exactly that has been true.

We sit by and watch the barbarian. We tolerate him in the long stretches of peace, we are not afraid. We are tickled by his irreverence; his comic inversion of our old certitudes and our fixed creed refreshes us; we laugh. But as we laugh we are watched by large and awful faces from beyond, and on these faces there are no smiles.

And that's the problem we face. Any society that tries to model itself on 7th century values, ANY 7th century values, Muslim, Christian, English, Chinese, whatever, is going to be barbaric. Remember “nasty, brutish and short?” Islamism is a movement seeking to embrace those values, and it's cheered on and supported by modern “progressives” who believe that the very thing that led mankind out of barbarism and into modern civilization, the western values of individual liberty and equality, are evils that mast be eliminated. It's an unholy alliance that will lead to the new dark ages if it isn't defeated.

Disorder In The Court

A right to expose a minor but no right to be free of Pfizer?

You have the right to expose kids to drag shows, but you do not have the right to bodily autonomy free of forced COVID mRNA jabs. That’s the upshot of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent refusal to hear a pair of cases — one from New Jersey, the other from Florida — that go to the heart of the First Amendment.

Once again, Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett proved to be disappointments. And once again, we see how federal courts that are missing in action in the fight to protect real rights in blue states can be counted on to impose phantom rights in red states.

The justices denied an appeal from New Jersey nurses who were forced to get the dangerous COVID jab or lose their jobs in state hospitals. A federal district court ruled in 2022 that no rights were violated by the state. By the time the case reached the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit earlier this year, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy had lifted the mandate, so the matter was considered moot.

It’s the same problem we seem to always have with election cases. When we ask the courts to weigh in, they refuse. When we finally gain some traction in the fact-finding portion of the matter, a judge will say the question is moot, and we’re back to square one. Better luck next time! And when it comes to biomedical tyranny mandates, there will be a next time.

The courts aren't going to save us, folks. Too much of Leviathan's unconstitutional power is now considered precedent or settled law. Article III is the shortest of the three articles defining the three branches of government, and the least detailed. In hindsight, that's a major weakness. If I were transported back in time, I'd do my best to get the founding fathers to include language along the lines of “The court's sole and overriding objective when adjudicating cases involving the US government shall be to limit the government's exercise of power and to constrain its reach to only those powers expressly and clearly enumerated in this constitution. Furthermore, in all such cases the starting assumption must be that the government does not have the right to take any action unless and until the government clearly and definitively demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt that its actions are permitted under the enumerated powers defined in this document”.

Might not make a difference, but it would be nice to have a mission statement.
