It Still Works Together. Or Doesn't Work, in This Case.

It Still Works Together. Or Doesn't Work, in This Case.

I was discussing Moira Greyland's The last Closet with someone last night, and in the mood of drawing connections, my last post came to mind. I've discussed before, this post among other places, how the left hates any form of boundary, be it national, personal, or sexual, constraining their behavior, and how this maps to cluster-B tendencies. I've also pointed out it's not just the recent drag queen storytime sessions. Many of the intellectual left's literary heroes have preached, endorsed, and too often practiced outright pedophilia, for no-one is too young to be introduced to sex, no matter how malleable,…

It All Works Together

It All Works Together

First - I've also got a recent post on strategies for dealing with the lies we are fed . I've written before on "tribal knowledge" and how important it is to maintain a deep knowledge store.  On a related note, over at Chicago Boyz, they discuss the impact of the  loss of knowledgeable people with systems experience on continuity of operations when cyberattacks hit. Financial Times notes that when cyberattacks occur, it is useful to have some employees around who know how to operate the system…whatever that system might be…without the automation. And the workers with this knowledge are…

The Bullshit

The Bullshit

There's an old story, apparently american indian, about everyone having two wolves inside them, one good, one evil, and the one that wins is the one you feed. It makes a good point. I've said before that the boundary between sin and normal human emotions and living is excess. letting it control you vs you managing it. Take wrath vs anger, or gluttony vs hunger. These become problems when you are obsessing over behavior, addictive or otherwise, to the point where it takes over your life instead of being a facet of it. As I've recently mentioned when mentioning Alexandru's…

A Bit of Engineering

A Bit of Engineering

I haven't delved deep enough into the channel to recommend the entirety on the whole, but both of these videos are worth your while. The first is an in-depth look about how the most basic of fuel feed systems, the carburetor, works, complete with high speed photography. One interesting note - the throttle plastic starts to flex under the force of the gas flow. At first it's thought it may be the plastic breaking down due to contact with the gasoline (in my childhood I'd made the mistake of pouring gasoline into a styrofoam cup, some plastics don't last long…

Just Say No to RageBait

My friend over at the Dacian wrote a piece recently that I believe is worthy of consideration. Namely - about how ragebait and clickbait were a slow and chronic Daily Dose of Poison. The sick part is that we love it. We are addicted to the hate served by the Technodemons. Did you see what the vice president did? Tweet, Retweet, Like, Comment. Snow White is now a Zulu Princess! Tweet, Anger, Like, Comment. Grilling is patriarchal white supremacy, eat bugs instead says Anti-Viral Magazine! Tweet, Hate, Like Comment. We see the latest nonsense engineered to upset us and we…

D-Day

D-Day

Also, in World War II, on the other side of the world... The Normandy landings (codenamed Operation Neptune) were the landing operations on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 (termed D-Day) of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. The largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the liberation of German-occupied northwestern Europe from Nazi control, and contributed to the Allied victory on the Western Front. Yeah, I know, the video doesn't match the lyrics. Nevertheless, Sabaton:…

Midway

Midway

A year ago, the turning point in the war against the Japanese in the Pacific. The Battle of Midway was a crucial and decisive naval battle in the Pacific Theater of World War II. Between 3 and 7 June 1942, only six months after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor and one month after the Battle of the Coral Sea, the United States Navy under Admirals Chester Nimitz, Frank Jack Fletcher, and Raymond A. Spruance decisively defeated an attacking fleet of the Imperial Japanese Navy under Admirals Isoroku Yamamoto, Chuichi Nagumo, and Nobutake Kondo near Midway Atoll, inflicting devastating damage on…

Every Villain a Sob Story

Every Villain a Sob Story

They woulda been great if only... Disney recently posted a request to take names for the next villain-was-really-misunderstood revisionist backstory, as relayed by Jon Mollison Come on people. The only answer to this question that would get ME to lay down some cabbage? Joanna. https://t.co/tMmeRJBNqC — Mr. Wargaming (@NotJonMollison) May 31, 2021 As an aside, you know they'll never rehab the cardinal or Captain Hook. This of course plugged right into a recent post over at the Tree of Woe on postmodern villains: Being unable to understand good leaves society unable to understand evil; and so instead…
