      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Obama wiretaped House of Rep. Cloak Room (claims Cali. Congressman)

Recommended Posts

Fuck! you people get loonier by the minute:

 

The DOJ admitted to obtaining call records from a phone used by the AP in the House press gallery, which is … different from tapping a room used by congressmen to talk shop. How Nunes confused the two, I have no idea. He recovers a bit, sort of, at the end of the excerpt when he pivots back to phone records, but I don’t know how he got from point A to point B in that conversation. His office is now “clarifying” what he said:

What Rep. Nunes meant by “tapped” was that the DOJ seized the phone records, as has been widely reported. There was a little confusion between him and the host during the conversation: He did not mean to refer to phone records of the cloakroom itself, but of the Capitol. This refers to the phone records for the AP from the House press gallery, which the DOJ admitted to looking at. He was explaining that if those phone records were seized, they would reveal a lot of conversations between the press and members of Congress, since reporters often speak to Members from the press gallery phones. The notion of the DOJ looking at phone records from the Capitol of conversations between Members of Congress and reporters is something that concerns Rep. Nunes, bringing up issues related to the separation of powers.

So he was sloppy in confusing obtaining phone records for wiretapping, and what he meant by the cloakroom is that, I guess, if a congressman in the room called up to an AP reporter in the press gallery, the DOJ would know about it from the gallery phone’s records. That’s a legit separation of powers question, but hyping a claim into something explosive and then having to walk it back risks creating an impression that reaction to what the actually DOJ did is overblown. It isn’t. Careful, please.

Well after all it is called the Cloak Room. Anybody could have made that mistake. At least any of the anybodies falling out the trees right now. I blame the loose nuts on Obama.

Just a guess here but I should think that certain areas and offices are regularly swept for listening devices and that this is a bunch of whooie.

Men who are physically strong are more likely to have right wing political views

Weaker men more likely to support welfare state and wealth redistribution

Strength was a proxy for ability to defend or acquire resources

Men who are physically strong are also more likely to get a job mixing concrete.

Bush's fault.

 

That is sooo yesterday. It's Obama's fault now. Even if that splatter has been on the wall for 9 years.

 

And pointing out how long it's been there? That's called "blame".

Now that any cell phone can be turned into a bug..... how hard would it be to wiretap congress? Just sayin'

Me thinks Congressman Nunes, from Fresno, may have been speaking to some AP reporters, and is nervous that his number shows up on some lists.

probably a lot easier to wiretap Congress when you know the cell phone numbers of the Congressmen - courtesy of the AP.

Visalia not Fresno. I had to look that up. I kinda like Fresno in a weird sort of way. There's a yacht club in Fresno. They run the High Sierra Regatta up on the Huntington Reservoir. Been there. Done that.

 

Fucking Nunes couldn't have come from Fresno. Couldn't. Fresno is rep'd by Costa. You see all those impeach Costa/Pelosi/Boxer signs on I5? That's Costa. Fresno has a KPFA affiliate.

The High Sierra Regatta used to be a big deal huge. What happened to it ?

It's pretty awesome up there ain't it? We will likely return to it next year, but with a Toro and a small cat, maybe crew on a 14...

I did the Commodore's Classic a few years back on the T at Huntington Lake. Amazing high altitude sailing...had to seriously adjust to get the boat powered up despite 15+ kts due to low density air. Ended up second place overall.

You don't have any idea what high altitude racing is until you've done the Dillon Open in Colorado. 9200ft.

How did you measure the wind speed?

Wind speed is measured the same. The difference is the pressure. So you get less power from the same wind speed. Boats don't feel right for the sea level guys.

Opposite is true for us coming down to the thick air.

Seen a lot of wind "speed" instruments that are really just measuring wind pressure.

Pressure differential. It's how aircraft pitot tubes work. Static pressure vs. ram pressure. Independent on altitude. So reading your wind instruments whether based on a anemometer or a pitot tube, you should get similar readings. However the boat and sails will load up differently on the same wind speed at different density altitudes. Aircraft face the same issues. The higher you fly, the less efficient the plane is, but goes faster due to the thinner air. But climb performance suffers. Many Texas flyers come to Colorado to die in our mountains because they don't respect that.

It measures pressure, not speed then. You don't use a different Vy below 10,000 right?

Huntington is known for 15+ winds starting at 10 AM and going til ~4 pm each and everyday. Pretty amazing...gusty to....but once it hits the boat, there's no surge or hull pop up...until we got dailed in and began tuning for more power...then we won just about all the remaining races at the event...save for one where we missed a mark on the course and discovered it too late to correct it...sailed around the finish line to take a DNF...cost us 1st overall.

Negative ghost rider. Vy doesn't change with density altitude, but take off and performance numbers do. A plane still works the same at the same airspeeds, there's just a different density of air molecules to work with. Temp plays a key component in the equation too.

Not saying it doesn't. Just that some methods of measuring "wind speed" are very inaccurate at high density altitudes. The ball in the tube, for instance.

 

Airplane are deeply affected by how well a fire is burning. It's difficult to compare.

I think your friend is trying to lead you to believe he is a manly man. We typically call that "compensating".
