People who zap commercials likely wouldn't have noticed this, but those who do catch commercials caught the fact that Republicans have pissed off not just military veterans but military-not-yet-veterans as well. One commercial in particular points out that what benefits veterans get, veterans have earned just like workers have earned their Social Security.

Double whammy on the GOP, that.

After a stabbing attack, Salman Rushdie can talk and joke


The author is recovering, but it would be a long process, Rushdie's agent said. His injuries include a damaged liver and severed nerves in an arm and an eye.

GOP Goons Follow The Same Playbook When Accountability Knocks

Claim victimhood, lie and threaten. Make it clear that safety lies in letting the victims get away with their crimes. They don't have the balls to back up their threats and the minions they think they lead are smarter than they are. They see the January 6th crowd getting convicted and going to jail and they don't want any part of that.

Something a little different. Some of you ol' farts out there might remember this.

Necro-aircraft and necro-pilots.
Recent news reports document Russia converting various An-2 passenger and cargo aircraft — old Soviet biplanes that first flew in 1947 — into drones, possibly as decoys to trigger air defenses. China has caught on too, converting 1950s Soviet jets into drones to serve as either decoys or for overwhelming an adversary. [...] Decades later, the U.S. military continues to convert old aircraft into drones for target practice.

The United States should go a step farther: instead of using old aircraft for target practice, weaponize them and throw them at an adversary. The U.S. military should harvest American and allied aircraft graveyards (both military and civil) to generate cheap, unmanned mass. This will require careful inventories and inspections of aircraft in the graveyards to assess flightworthiness, the feasibility of conversion to remote or autonomous flight, and options for weaponizing. Adding long-range guns, bombs, or missiles might work for some undead aircraft, while others may only be suitable for kamikaze attacks. The broad range of aircraft involved also suggest the Air Force may require specialized pilots — call them necro-pilots, maybe — able to comfortably handle a variety of undead aircraft that may be missing parts or fly a bit janky.

Undead aircraft could serve a variety of military functions. The most obvious is filling the aircraft with explosives, then carrying out a kamikaze strike. Aircraft confined to the boneyard are not doing anything, so cavalierly throwing them against an adversary only costs the time and technology to prepare the aircraft. The aircraft’s long range makes them well-suited to deep-strike attacks against softer targets, like rail bridges. Their low cost also means many undead aircraft can be thrown against a target. Depending on the target, smarter, more advanced munitions may be kept in reserve, saving stocks for when they are really needed. Alternatively, the aircraft may carry bombs, missiles, or other weapons that allow it to carry out multiple attacks against multiple targets. This could be quite effective as a first-wave attack in advance of manned aircraft: The undead aircraft and other decoys trigger radar and air defenses that can be countered with anti-radiation missiles. If undead aircraft make it through the air defenses, they might be able to crash into targets and cause some damage too.

I'm rather partial to "Resting Crimeface," "Daddy Nobucks" and "Summa Cum Fraude" - but a lot of these are good.

How does Jesse know what walrus taint tastes like? Perspiring minds wanna know!

Not one bit of plastered asbestos insulation anywhere. Very primitive indeed.
Superheated steam would mandate asbestos/plaster insulation for sure, so yeah--I'm stronger of the opinion that those tanks back there are pre-heaters.
