LIONS AND JENNERS AND LOW BALLS OH MY........ Distractions.......

When people are screaming about some outrage or other, look for what the real story they are hiding is.
Deflate-gate rolls on.....
Look a squirrel!

Distractions, nothing more.
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
I detest poachers and unethical hunters, but this is a matter for the country that it happened in.
NOT a matter for our DOJ.
Manufactured outrage to froth up the SJW's.
Until the next two minutes of hate.

♫♫ Mountain.. Live.. Nantucket Sleighride*... 17 mins ♫♫

Goodbye, little Robin-Marie
Don't try followin' me
Don't cry, little Robin-Marie
'Cause you know, I'm coming home soon
My ships' leaving on a three year tour
The next tide will take us from shore
Wind laced, gather in sail and spray
On a search for the mighty sperm whale
Fly your willow branches, wrap your body round my soul
Lay down your reeds and drums on my soft sheets
There are years behind us reaching
To the place where hearts are beating
And I know, you're the last true love I'll ever meet
And I know, you're the last true love I'll ever meet
Starbuck is sharpening his harpoon
The black man is playing his tune
An old salt is sleepin' his watch away
He'll be drunk again before noon
Three years sailing on bended knee
We found no whales in the sea
Don't cry, little Robin-Marie
'Cause we'll be in sight of land soon
Fly your willow branches, wrap your body round my soul
Lay down your reeds and drums on my soft sheets
There are years behind us reaching
To the place where hearts are beating
And I know, you're the last true love I'll ever meet
And I know, you're the last true love I'll ever meet

*Nantucket Sleigh Ride
Originally the term for harpooning a whale in a rickety boat usually meant to hold no more than 16 people, and letting the whale swim itself tired before killing the whale
Popularised by whale killing off nantucket island

Mainly found in old whaling books, and Moby Dick

The Zero Armed Bandit... Amazing Story!! I never heard about this one.......

  Sent in by reader Monty, thanks!

“I don’t think it belongs here.” Such was the assessment of Bob Vinson, the graveyard shift supervisor at Harvey’s Wagon Wheel Casino in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. The “here” Vinson referred to was a nook just outside the telephone equipment room in the employees-only portion of the second floor of the hotel. The “it” was a curious piece of equipment of unknown origin loitering conspicuously in the cramped side room. It was a metallic gray box about the size of a desk, with a smaller box attached on top near the rear right corner. The front face of the smaller box was an incomprehensible control panel occupied by 28 metal toggle switches in five neat rows, each labeled with a numbered sticker. All of these switches were situated in the down position except for #23, which was toggled up—an oddly ominous asymmetry.

Minnesota Dentist Will Be Watching His Back.....

This is just wrong.....

Cecil the lion – the most famous creature in one of Zimbabwe's national parks – was killed by an American hunter who has boasted about shooting a menagerie of animals with his bow and arrow, The Telegraph can reveal.
Walter Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, is believed to have paid £35,000 to shoot and kill the much-loved lion with a bow and arrow. The animal was shot on July 1 in Hwange National Park. Two independent sources have confirmed the hunter's identity to the paper, which has also seen a copy of the relevant hunting permit.
Conservation groups in Zimbabwe reacted angrily to the news that the 13-year-old animal had been killed: partly because the lion was known to visitors and seemingly enjoyed human contact, and partly because of the way in which he was killed. He was lured out of the national park and shot.
"He never bothered anybody," said Johnny Rodrigues, the head of Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force. "He was one of the most beautiful animals to look at." 


How do you fix a shorted cable ? Not just any cable. An underground, 3-phase, 230kV, 800 amp per phase......

...... 10 mile long one, carrying power from a power station to a distribution centre.

Amazing story from one of Aceofspades links. 

How do you fix a shorted cable ? Not just any cable. An underground, 3-phase, 230kV, 800 amp per phase, 10 mile long one, carrying power from a power station to a distribution centre. It costs $13,000 per hour in downtime, counting 1989 money, and takes 8 months to fix. That’s almost $75 million. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power did this fix about 26 years ago on the cable going from the Scattergood Steam Plant in El Segundo to a distribution center near Bundy and S.M. Blvd. [Jamie Zawinski] posted details on his blog in 2002. [Jamie] a.k.a [jwz] may be familiar to many as one of the founders of Netscape and Mozilla.
To begin with, you need Liquid Nitrogen. Lots of it. As in truckloads. The cable is 16 inch diameter co-axial, filled with 100,000 gallons of oil dielectric pressurised to 200 psi. You can’t drain out all the oil for lots of very good reasons – time and cost being on top of the list. That’s where the LN2 comes in. They dig holes on both sides (20-30 feet each way) of the fault, wrap the pipe with giant blankets filled with all kind of tubes and wires, feed LN2 through the tubes, and *freeze* the oil. With the frozen oil acting as a plug, the faulty section is cut open, drained, the bad stuff removed, replaced, welded back together, topped off, and the plugs are thawed. To make sure the frozen plugs don’t blow out, the oil pressure is reduced to 80 psi during the repair process. They can’t lower it any further, again due to several compelling reasons. The cable was laid in 1972 and was designed to have a MTBF of 60 years.

There Are Rebels Behind The Lines In The People's Republik of mASSachusetts.....

Not many have the talent to simultaneously insult two media figures in ten words or less, but someone in Massachusetts was up for the challenge. Whether the message was successful or not is up for debate.

Does This Comment Sum It Up Or What?....

  I followed the link on THIS POST at BIGFURHAT's place.

The link leads to an article at Breitbart entitled:

Cyclist Burns Used Toilet Paper, Starts Forest Fire


The comments there are worth reading :)


This one especially: 

"Why the hell are all the government officials cracking jokes?? This was criminal negligence of the first order!

Seems our government now only exists to coordinate Democrat corruption, reward liberals, enrich welfare recipients, enfranchise and enrich illegal alien invaders, destroy our military all the while punishing hard working tax paying middle class citizens (double penalty if they are male, christian or conservative)."

Friday Femme Fatale....


Link O'rama.. Keeping Tabs On Events...

Complied and submitted by AFOI
** Interesting video about Islam.
** Please wait... Stasi loading.
** Iran?  Poverty?  Race wars?  Economy?  LOOK, TRUMP!
** Wild Bill on the treason by Obama and Kerry.
** What I find sickening is JUST that the Left keeps defending this, but that as more and more details come out,
they're getting angrier and angrier... at the Right for pointing these details out.  Why, it's almost as though
the Left sees the Right as the greater enemy than people who openly say "Death to America" and are the largest
state sponsor of terrorism on earth.
** Gag.  Retch.  Read this and the embedded quotes, and then shake your head at the lack of ANY self-worth as this
modern male lets his wife sleep around, reveling in her "freedom".
** So tell me, again, how ISIS is NOT "Islamic" when it mimics, exactly, the actions of Muslims centuries ago.
** In the name of tolerance, our moral and intellectual betters would - IMHO - cheerfully gun every conservative down.
** Read this, just survey the EIGHTH-GRADE questions... and think about today's students.
** I have to wonder if this is a real quote (I know what he planned and advocated).
** They have a long game, and they have missionary-level zeal for the end goal.
** Our friends no longer trust us, and our enemies no longer fear us.  We are in deep, deep trouble.
** Well played, Iran.
** A systematic effort - deliberate and with malice aforethought - to swamp Europe.  And Canada.  And the US.
** A very interesting observation about the Left's desperate attempt to distract from the horrors of
the video, quote: "Leftists love "secret recordings" when they make conservatives and Republicans
look bad. When leftists and Democrats look bad, not so much."
** The MSM; Orwell was prophetic.  Related:
** The MSM wants "gotcha" quotes they can play ad nauseum.  Related:
** If a Republican was this openly mendacious, it'd be 24/7 news.
** But our intellectual superiors have assured us this never, never, never happens.
** Funny how, for someone whose defenders viciously attack those who speculate Barackus is a Muslim, Barackus seems to
come down on the Islamist side EVERY DAMN TIME.
** You know, the next time a Leftist bashes Trump for this (and IMHO he deserves to be bashed!), ask him casually "What do
you think of Senator Al Franken?"  Then drop this on them.
** Quote: "In 2012, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Office of Vital Statistics, found that there were more black
babies killed by abortions (31,328) than there were born (24,758)."  >> That racist Sanger is laughing:
** Look at #12. 

The "Rebel" Irishman....

  Today I had opportunity to enjoy lunch with blog buddy Leigh and his family. 

They are on vacation in my neck of the woods and stopped by to say Hi and check out

the sooper sekrit bunker of The Feral Irishman. Leigh was kind enough to bring along some

home grown honey and some gifts from his friend and my blog buddy  Tony at SARATOGAFLAG

If you want your own battle flag or any other flag, sticker or signage email  or call  Tony and tell 

him that Irish sent you!

Thanks Tony! Thanks Leigh!
