Christopher Marlowe,

I did not. I did read George
Will's op-ed on it last Sunday
and listened to a discussion
about it on POTUS (XM channel for
political news junkies).

As I recall the op-ed, the ACA
says if a person cannot afford
health care then the state will
provide a subsidy. This created a
problem if a person resided in a
state which chose not to create a
health care exchange. OTOH, if
one reads 'state' to mean the
federal government, then there is
no problem.

The crux of the case appears to
be what did Congress intend by
'state'? Was Congress speaking of
state as one of the 50 states or
was Congress using 'state' as a
short-hand for the federal
government?

I've not read the relevant
passage, much less the entire
ACA, so do not now have an
opinion. I believe it's another
example of sloppy legislating
created by the rush to get it
out.

How did Speaker Pelosi put it at
the time? ~ We'll find out what's
in the bill after we pass it.

Trivia Girl: Perth Amboy Tool


Agent Cooper1: I'm afraid I, myself, may have been a Cobblepot at one time or another. Oh, well! Independent thinking, comes with the territory.


Agent Cooper2: I grew up in a neighborhood where our houses were so close together that a barking dog would have driven the whole neighborhood crazy, so there were a lot of cats. We had a funny all-grey cat name Lightning (not named after the "Amos 'n Andy" character) who was treated uniquely. I could bore you with stories about him, but he definitely was a family member and distinctly low maintenance.


Agent Cooper3: See the original 1978 movie "Dawn of the Dead" and if you like it, "The Walking Dead" is a worthy successor (in terms of the genre.) It's exciting stuff but gruesome, and I know you have young kids. I've taken earlier seasons of the DVD's out of the library and look forward to a new season.

Lostinamerica - Kam - Chris Marlowe: My familiy had a cat when I was a kid, a big old tom cat and his name was Milo. He was the coolest cat ever, he had so much personality and was so much fun and we really loved him.

But he was an outdoor cat and was very tough. In the summer he didn't even eat much cat food. He basically hunted birds and mice. But his food of choice was squirrel. The creepy thing was, he'd leave piles of squirrel bones and tails exactly at the four corners of our house. I'm not making this up. It was like he was part of some feline squirrel death cult.

Milo really was very tough, he'd fight any animal that wandered into his territory and won most of the time. One day I stepped on his foot accidentally, and hurt his paw. So my sister and I had to take him to the vet. After a 30 minute chase and struggle to wrestle him into a cardboard box, we drove him over. (I had scratches all up both arms from him fighting, and this is with one lame paw.)

We get to the vet late in the afternoon and we're the only ones in the waiting room. So we check in and let Milo out of the box to wander around a bit. There's a big bay window in the waiting room looking out into the parking lot. While we are waiting, this older lady with a great big mean looking dog pulls up and heads in. Milo sees this, and immediately jumps up onto a sofa next to the door. His tail and hair goes up and he's ready to pounce. My sister and I realize he's going to ambush this poor dog! I grab Milo just as the dog and lady open the door. Milo is hissing and scratching and fighting to get away from me to get to the dog (again, lame paw and all) and it's all I can do to hold him back. The lady, who is up at the counter checking in, sees this and looks at me and says sweetly, "Oh, your cat doesn't have to be afraid, Lexy won't hurt him."

lostinamerica I am still not thrilled with the premise, but so far, it hasn't been as bad as I was expecting. I was more ore less envisioning nothing but bickering couples and kind of funny the blind dating couples are better.

I think the producers were hoping for a bigger show of romance, when most folks seem to be just interested in racing. Go figure. *g*

KAM--I forgot about the owls--them too ;)

What we both need is a good, old-fashioned outdoor cat--we had one at our old house, he belonged to a neighbor a couple of streets over. We frequently saw him at our house and kind of provided a second home to him, we'd let him in if he got caught in the rain or was out too late one night, and were properly rewarded with little chipmunk heads and other body parts occasionally strewn around the yard ;)


Maverick--I like the spray bottle method the best. I can't believe most people like the damp towel method--I might as well get out the ironing board and iron, it's pretty much the same thing. And I would only be able to do it after showering, when I would have damp towels.


ChristopherMarlowe--What do you think of the current Amazing Race? It's better than I thought, and interesting that the couples doing the best are the dating couples!

My boss is the last person I could even imagine watching a show about zombies. I guess resistance is futile. I will be assimilated....

Christopher Marlowe,

Off last night's China question. Setting aside defining 'superpower' here are some comparative economic statistics ...

Gross Domestic Production

A Wikipedia article listing the nominal GDP's of countries shows ...

1. USA, 2. China, 3. Japan, 4. Germany1


Per Capita GDP

This measure GDP by population. The US is listed as #13 at $53,143 per person. China is listed as #82 with $6,959 per person.


Income Equality (Inequality)

The classic metric is the Gini Index where 1 = complete inequality and 0 = complete equality. This is a more difficult metric and I find some variation in the values given to China.2 Overall, the US and China have similar values for income inequality.



1 The rankings provided by the IMF, World Bank, and CIA all list the European Union as having a higher GDP than the USA, but the EU is not a country.

2 One Chinese source gave China's Gini index as .75 which is a high value of inequality.

did not shoot JFK (at least from

I found Agent Carter so lifeless that I kept falling asleep during episodes. Especially when that tall, thin guy who was supposed to be someone's butler was onscreen. I DID however, just recently watch Season One on DVD's (which I took out of my local library.) The TV Series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., dragged in spots and just let a commercial come on and I'm sawing z-z-z-z's. It WAS actually pretty good watching the DVD's.


Speaking of DVD's, Season Five of "Downton Abbey" is another fabulous drama. They certainly know how to do it right.

I hope they never use this guy again and Clinton gets another one painted--while I don't agree with what he did it's inappropriate to memorialize his error in a formal portrait. Are we going to put mistakes every president made in their portraits now?

In other Bronzer health news, some guy in a truck ran a red light and Icelord, in her nifty Volkswagen Bug Convertible, T-Boned him and flipped the truck with 3 inside. She is now on crutches, although nothing broken (except her heart about her cute car.)


Christopher Marlowe: Obama's coming to South Dakota. Why? To waste money--he wants to visit all (57?) states.


I saw a video that was trying to show how to eliminate wrinkles from clothes in the dryer. You're supposed to throw in ice chips which will then steam them.

Good Morning Everyone,

YAY LAZY GIRL

Christopher Marlowe
: Well, I have some outside projects that need attention right away. 1) Replace 3 sidewalk squares, 2) replace drain line that chipmunks have destroyed.
Both of these things are going to require me to get contractors to do. There is far too much labor involved for me to do alone, and without mechanical assistance, but by the time I got that, I might as well just pay for someone else to do it.

I have in mind a "refresh" plan for the house--that is, starting with the interior, and touching up areas that have gotten some wear and tear. Hard to believe that I've lived in this house almost 10 years. Most things are in pretty good shape, but some areas need painting, and a bit of maintenance. Plus, the place is getting too disorganized, so I would really like to get a reset on all those things.

Then, I have all sorts of other outside maintenance to do. My "wild" area in back needs to be burned (can't actually do that) and dead trees removed/chipped up. I really need to review the border of the house in terms of landscaping as well, and get things refreshed there too.
My back deck is not well made, so I want to strip that down to the frame, reinforce where necessary, and put in new railings and decking. That's a job I think I can do myself (with some help), but it is lower priority.

So...tons of work, as usual.

Beldin - Congratulation! That's the way to do snow. You get to watch the pretty, and then it
goes away.

Back when I was in college, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, my parents lived up North, in
Pittsburgh. I could go home for a white Christmas and then escape, at least until that one year when
I woke up to about six inches of the stuff right in Austin.

while. I can't say that I've done anything exciting recently.

No, wait, I did! I replaced two ceiling light fixtures! I am afraid of all things electrical, so I read
instructions and consulted my brother, and had to stop mid-task to get up my courage, but when the
dust settled, the lights came on. The burning smell went away when I remembered that the bulbs
had been in an open box for a long time and wiped them off. *g*

via email from Jack Burkhead....


On Friday ( 20th) he was admitted through the ER into a hospital here in Texas. He had a lung infection and was not processing air well. He was placed on Oxygen and given IV anti biotics. He spent several days in the ICU, but the worst of this crisis appears to be behind him at this point. He is still hospitalized for further treatment and breathing therapy. He will likely remain in the facility for at least the next week or more.

His physicians seem confident he will achieve some level of recovery. How much will not be clear until he has completed several more tests and had a chance to respond to treatment. There seems to be no mental deficit, but he may need an Oxygen system for some time. At this point, we just do not know.

The other has a catalytic effect which dissolves their skin and muscle. But a human throwing a smoke bomb laced with the spices in a small room ahs to be able to get to the door before being overcome himself. And, like garlic, they need to be healthy spices.

I recommend, by DeMille, the John Corey novels starting with "Plum Island." Corey is a class A number one smart @ss but operates as a detective and later in the FBI's terrorist task force in NYC; those novels are written in first person and catch all his sarcastic asides. The other DeMille novels are also excellent (except maybe for "The General's Daughter," the only one filmed.)

Trivia Girl

The Owl and the Pu$sy-Cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat:
They took some honey,
and plenty of money
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.

The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Pu$sy, O Pu$sy, my love,
What a beautiful Pu$sy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pu$sy you are!"

Pu$sy said to the Owl, "You elegant fowl,
How charmingly sweet you sing!
Oh! let us be married;
too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?"

They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the bong-tree grows;
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood,
With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose,
His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

"Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?" Said the Piggy, "I will."
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;

And hand in hand on the edge of the sand
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

The Owl and the PuSsycat - 1871 - by Edward Lear

ChristopherMarlowe Who knows how it originally started. Rituals using water to ward off a variety of so called evil entities are quite old. It would make sense that the practice would apply to vampires in their various forms in the various cultures around the world. Certainly water doesn't really factor into all, or even most, of the myths. But one would presume that the purification and life sustaining properties are primary properties that would pertain to banishing evil beasties. Of course, that wouldn't explain the whole Greek thing about not being able to cross salt water.

From Reprise...

Holland: "Well - *no*. Of course we aren't. We have no intention of doing
anything so prosaic as 'winning.'"

Holland laughs and for the first time Angel turns his head to glance in
Holland's general direction.

Angel: "Then why?"
Holland: "Hmm? I'm sorry? Why what?"
Angel: "Why fight?"

Holland: "That's really the question you should be asking yourself, isn't it?
See, for us, there is no fight. Which is why winning doesn't enter into it. We
- go on - no matter what. Our firm has always been here. In one form or
another. The Inquisition. The Khmer Rouge. We were there when the very first
cave man clubbed his neighbor. See, we're in the hearts and minds of every
single living being. And *that* - friend - is what's making things so difficult
for you. - See, the world doesn't work in spite of evil, Angel. - It works with
us. - It works because of us."


That bit reminds me of what Angel said later. "If there's no great glorious end to all this, if nothing we do matters then all that matters is what we do. Cause
that's all there is."

DaddyCatALSO According to my large and dusty tome on Vampires, Van Helsing specified that vampires can only cross running water at high or low tide. A Chinese vampire type also can't cross running water, but most of the eastern European vampire myths had no such problem, but that could be explained by their largely land-locked status.

The entry also specifies that in some areas, suspected vampires or those who might become vampires were thrown in water as it was believed the earth wouldn't take them. Germany and Prussia also had a practice of pouring water between the suspected vampire's grave and their home as this would prevent them from returning to the home when they rose. Greece had a vampire myth in which vampires were banished to an island because they couldn't cross salt water. cc: Agent Cooper, Ebdim9th

Trivia Girl: Two times pseventy-five.


lostinamerica: Before the Oscars, there WAS some talk that a lot of Academy members were actually allowing their housekeepers and domestic servants to vote FOR them. As they are probably Mexican and Alejandro Inarritu is Mexican, well. (not to be confused with Alfonso Cuaron Orozco [director of "Gravity" and another Mexican.]) Best Movie? I would have said "The Imitation Game" from which, I believe, I learned the most in terms of being able to visualize the actual machinery, although "American Sniper" was excellent as drama. Redmayne, though, contorted himself into Hawking so well, and got the toothiness just right, he was kind of overwhelming in the best Actor category.


Driving in Snow: I grew up in western Pennsylvania, which is all hills and valleys, with lots of ice and snow. So, I had lots of practice on driving and stopping. Start down a hill and start sliding and you find out what fear really is. We learned to pump our brakes to stop because if you just hold the brake pedal down it might lock the brake on, the wheel will not turn, and the car will just slide like it's on skis. But with the anti-lock brake systems (often called ABS Brakes) you no longer should pump the brake pedal to stop on snow in the winter, as the "system" itself will pump them for you; you just hold the break pedal down. You must know if you DO or DO NOT have an ABS system or not; surprisingly before 2012 (they became mandatory in 2012) many cars, especially smaller cars and compacts, did not have them. If you do not have ABS brakes, driving and stopping in snow is a completely different proposition. If you start to skid and your wheels are sideways (and not turning) to the direction you car is headed, you will get far better traction if you turn your wheels in the direction of the skid so that they are turning again and are more in touch with the road surface this will give you more traction.

Lostinamerica: Well, at least I'M honest and open about it. That is, if I AM some kind of spy. Which I'm not. As far a you know.

Chris Marlowe et al: I live in a climate with snowy winters and it's amazing how people somehow forget how to drive in snow over the summer. The first real snowfall is like Amateur Day. Also, we see lots of 4WD bravado syndrome. Here's how this condition progresses: You buy yourself a big ol' four wheel drive vehicle. Which is fine. They are very useful here in the winter and sensibly driven can get you through the snow very well. But for some people this causes a false sense of security. They figure, hey, I have this honkin' 4WD truck, so I CAN GO AS FAST AS I WANT IN THE SNOW AND ICE!! GET OUT OF THE WAY SLOWPOKES!! WHHEEEE!!!

And you know what? You CAN go pretty fast in the snow with a nice 4wd vehicle. But you still shouldn't. Because you can't STOP ANY FASTER. This is the part of the equation the syndrome blocks out of the sufferer's mind. We see lots of these fools sliding off the road and flipped over on the highway shoulder here every winter.

Sorry, real life got in the way--though I will say scraping ice off your driveway with a shovel is very aerobic ;)

And I missed a Yay! Day, darn!


Maverick--I can't believe Birdman won for Best Picture--I got it, but then came the ending. Did you understand the ending? I did like how it was shot, though.

We really tried to see as many Oscar-nominated movies as possible and of the ones we saw, Birdman, The Theory of Everything, The Imitation Game and American Sniper, I think I'll have to go with The Theory of Everything as the best, with The Imitation Game a close second. I really wanted to see Boyhood, but a friend just told us it was the most boring movie ever, so now I don't know. Whiplash looks too disturbing so I don't think I'll see that.


ChristopherMarlowe--Love me some Antiques Roadshow :) I really like the original, British version--some one always seems to pick up some medieval trinket for nothing at a boot sale that is now worth thousands of pounds. Really?

I think the latest Amazing Race began last night, I'll have to see if I can watch it today.

Deadguy Memorial Angel Wednesday Question


True/false/discuss. Although cold does not affect vampires, they seem to prefer warmer climates, even though warmer climates have more hours of sun?

Are they really unaffected? Perhaps they are exotherms and need to sun themselves ... wait, that can't be right. Okay, maybe like snakes like to lie on warm rocks, vampires being both cold-blooded and sun-challenged need a hot climate that warms the environment during the day and then the vampires soak up the absorbed heat during the night. No, that doesn't work to well, since deserts radiate the heat relatively quickly and become cool at night...

I always wondered how Buffy could snuggle up to a cold, creature of the night. Forget her blood, Angel or Spike would suck up all her body heat. She'd become hypothermic in a short time. Except for the slayer strength and whatnot.

This is a difficult DGMQ.

Oh, I know. Vampires are more likely to find humans out and about on nights in warm weather than in nights in cold weather (and there's the overcoat thing, makes it difficult to bite the neck).

Christopher Marlowe,

Atlanta and north Georgia are under a 'Winter Storm Warning'. Moisture from the Gulf of Mexico moving north and cold area from the north moving south, where they collide there is snow, sleet, ice.

Much of northern Georgia has snow. Atlanta has experience a lot of rain and some snow, none sticking. The real concern is always the water freezing on roads, trees, and power lines. Most all of the schools were closed today, yet the rain didn't hit till around 1PM.

Irishrose Agent Cooper Ebdim9th interesting to compare the vairosu fictional treatments of vmapires. Palldium games (Beyond the Sueprnautral, Rifts) keep the running water thing (ene a firehose destroys vmaps in that 'verse, not just holy water) but don't have the have-to-be-invited thing.
I see the necessity n a TV show, but I like the diea that rutly destroying a vmp permanently takes more than a stake.

Ebdim9th IIRC - it has to do with water purifying. Still water does so, but moving water even more so. Water cleanses. Vampires are "dirty". Water washes away the dirt.

eta:
Agent Cooper I don't know if "Spike and Dru" is considered canon, but Spike and Lawson swimming ~20(?) miles after getting kicked off the submarine in the 1940's is absolutely canon.

Chris Marlowe: Hmmm. I think it depends on if vamps like water, or if it bothers them.

Hammer vamps, no way. Running water especially harmed them as in the traditional myths. They wouldn't even cross a river.

I think Rice vamps might be okay with a hot tub, because they like the warmth. Rice vamps can't drink or eat normal food but they like the feel and smell of a hot cup of coffee or tea in their hands when they are cold. So I suppose they might like a warm sauna. On the other hand, I can't remember any mention of Rice vampires swimming or immersing themselves in water in any of the books. In fact, sometimes vamps are described as being literally "dusty" because they just plain forget to clean themselves or brush off their hair or clothes. So maybe they don't like being in water?

Whedonverse vamps, from what I can tell, don't seem to be bothered by water. I think we see Harmony having taken a shower at Cordy's apartment. And Spike waded into the ocean once on an Angel ep. Of course, he had the Ring of Amara on at the time, so maybe that doesn't prove anything. But I remember reading a novel about Spike and Dru, they were trapped in a submarine and later escaped and swam away in the ocean, so water doesn't seem to have any adverse effects. But is that canon?

On a side note, Whedon vamps also seem to be able to eat normal food when the mood strikes them.

Joss could clear up alot of these questions if he popped in here once in a while. I wonder if he even knows this place still exists.

Whedonverse vamps never seem to talk about weather and its affects on them. Since they spend almost all their time in Southern CA, that's not surprising.

So I'm going with the Rice vampire model, where we have some first hand accounts. (Yeah, I know. Shush!) Anne Rice's vampires say that although they don't like the sensation of being cold, low temperatures really don't affect them much otherwise.

Christopher Marlowe,

LOL

We do not handle snow or ice very well, so January and February are not good months to visit. The two 'challenges' are traffic and possibly navigation.

The city of Atlanta proper has around half a million people. The Atlanta metro area has around five and a half million people.

I-285 is what the British call a ring road of around 50 miles. We call it 'The Perimeter' and often locations are given with references to being inside or outside the perimeter. I-285 is around 8-10 lanes and accepting, possibly, the wee hours of the morning, heavy in traffic.

From the north, I-75 enters Georgia from Tennessee and heads southeast towards Atlanta. I-85 enters from South Carolina and heads southwest towards Atlanta.

Both cross 285 and as the approach north of downtown Atlanta - an area we call 'Midtown' - they merge into one interstate 75/85 and turn south.

I-20 is the east-west interstate and it bisects 285 and cuts through downtown. Downtown Atlanta is close to the nexus of I-20 and I-75/85.

Around 7-8 miles south of downtown, I-75/85 resume their separate identities with I-75 heading south-southeast towards Macon and points south and I-85 heading into the southwest corners of the state.

All of these interstates see very heavy traffic throughout most of each 24 hour day. The same is true for most major arteries though they will lighten up late night and very early mornings.

While downtown Atlanta has major corporations with their skyscrapers, downtown may be more centered on government, education, and convention business. Over the past few decades many businesses have moved north up Peachtree Street and along and between I-75 and I-85 north of the perimeter. There are many towns and even small cities in the Atlanta metro area. Very few people know the entire metro area, maybe none. People know their home turf, work area, and major interstates and roads.

More in a bit
