For Unto You Is Born An ONT

Wow. Thursday night and I have power. That's a novelty. Welcome to the ONT! Tonight's theme is “Let's be like the Founding Fathers”.

This Is Cool

Does anyone know about this? That seems like a handy thing to have around in case of...situations. How much does it cost? How much water can it filter before it has to be serviced or have parts replaced? Their website is in Polish, so I have no idea.

Down On The Farm

‘Clarkson’s Farm’ Piques Viewers’ Appreciation And Appetite For Good Old-Fashioned Agriculture

Few people want to think about the continued need for farmers and the crucial work they do. 

However, TV host and England’s “Sexiest Man of the Year” Jeremy Clarkson proves in his new series, “Clarkson’s Farm,” this is a huge mistake. Clarkson runs a 1,000-acre farm in Oxfordshire, and the series documents his journey to reconnect modern audiences to the work of their ancestors. The result of this endeavor is some of the most entertaining, informative, and surprisingly profound television to come out in a long time. 

My wife and I are big fans of the show, we've watched all 3 seasons. The regulatory BS that he has to go through is insane, makes me glad I live in Texas and not England. If you've seen him on Top Gear, you know that Clarkson is a skilled entertainer, and he flexes his entertainment muscles here, but the show also does a really good job at showing just how complicated the job of a “simple farmer” is.

My Shocked Face: Hamas Are Thieves

IDF: Hamas stole $100 million from Gaza banks

The Hamas terrorist group last month stole some $108 million from banks in the Gaza strip, the Israeli military revealed on Wednesday.
Last month, France’s Le Monde reported that armed groups in the Strip with suspected links to Hamas looted $70 million from branches of the Bank of Palestine, a leading Palestinian financial institution.
The funds were taken from the vaults of several branches of the bank across Gaza, said the report, which cited a Bank of Palestine document sent to “certain international partners” detailing the alleged robberies.
In one instance, the largest Bank of Palestine branch was attacked by terrorist commandos who claimed they were sent by “Gaza’s highest authorities,” which Le Monde said was understood to mean Hamas.

I shan't believe that such a fine, upstanding organization would condone such an act. Shan't I tell you.

The Tooth, The Whole Tooth, And Nothing But The Tooth

World-first tooth-regrowing drug will be given to humans in September

The medicine itself deactivates the uterine sensitization-associated gene-1 (USAG-1) protein, which suppresses tooth growth. As we reported in 2023, blocking USAG-1's interaction with other proteins encourages bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling, which triggers new bone to generate.

It resulted in new teeth emerging in the mouths of mice and ferrets, species that share close to the same USAG-1 properties as humans.

"The USAG-1 protein has a high amino acid homology of 97% between different animal species, including humans, mice, and beagles," the researchers noted.

I'm missing a couple of molars on the left side of my mouth. When I lost them we couldn't afford implants, and by the time we could, I was so used to the being gone that I never bothered. Time was I might be interested in this treatment, but since COVID, I'm not sure how much I trust “trials” to ensure that it's a safe treatment.

Bad Day At Work

Bob is a commercial saturation diver for Global Divers in Louisiana.

This time of year the water is quite cool. So what we do to keep warm is this: We have a diesel powered industrial water heater. This $20,000 piece of equipment sucks the water out of the sea. It heats it to a delightful temperature. It then pumps it down to the diver through a garden hose, which is taped to the air hose. Now this sounds like a darn good plan, and I've used it several times with no complaints. What I do, when I get to the bottom and start working, is take the hose and stuff it down the back of my wet suit. This floods my whole suit with warm water. It's like working in a Jacuzzi. Everything was going well until all of a sudden, my butt started to itch. So, o

And then thing got sporty.

We're From The Government And We're Here To Help

Seattle’s $26 Minimum Wage Has Turned Into a Disaster for Delivery Drivers

In an effort to protect gig workers, Seattle implemented a new law mandating a $26 minimum wage for delivery drivers. However, just weeks after its enactment, the law has backfired spectacularly. Instead of benefiting drivers, it has led to exorbitant delivery prices, a plummet in order volumes, and significant income losses for the drivers it intended to help.

My shocked face.

We're Sorry, Mr. Franklin

A Republic? You Can Keep It.

As I've been saying for months now, a "banana republic" is by definition an irrelevant peripheral basket-case on the fringe of the map: yes, yes, I know, if you're watching that pier break apart off Gaza and US navy vessels wash up on Israeli beaches, what's left of America may increasingly seem like that, but it is still in theory "the leader of the free world". The expression "banana republic" was coined for Guatemala and Honduras; it's a problem of an entirely different scale when a great power does it, and it doesn't portend anything good about where the world's headed. A governing party of a serious nation so indifferent to elementary maxims of prudence that it's prepared to invent out of whole cloth crimes with which to convict the leader of the opposition is not one you'd want to bank on to keep us from stumbling into, say, a third world war.

True, "there is a great deal of ruin in a nation". But not this much.

Tonight's ONT has been brought to you by feats of human strength:
