A little late, but Happy Fuck the President Day!

In a lot of ways, every day can be Fuck The President (He’s Racist) Day.

I already know the answer to all the questions you get. Only reason I keep coming back to read them though is because I know we're in the minority, and it helps to see other people with the same thoughts, so as to not feel like I'm alone or crazy since I'm constantly surrounded by racism.

Little secret: people like you are the actual main reason I do this webpage.

Waste Not

British Columbia woodsman Francis Wharton shot a deer in the late 1960s but had no serviceable teeth with which to eat it.

With venison steak hanging in the balance, Wharton extracted the teeth from his deer, filed and ground them to what appeared a handy size. He then chewed up a wad of Plastic Wood, molding it to the shape of his gums, and thereto affixed the teeth, using household cement for binder. Francis then sat down to a hearty meal of venison and ate it with the deer’s own teeth.

That’s from dental researcher Gardner P.H. Foley’s 1972 Treasury of Dentistry. The teeth, described as “loose,” “dark and dirty,” are on display at the Museum of Health Care in Kingston. Reportedly Wharton used them for three years; collections manager Kathy Karkut says, “He must have used a lot of Polident.”

Client: We want to thoroughly document these processes so everyone can understand how to use the new online systems.

Me: That makes a lot of sense. I’ll send you an MS Word template so your team can work on the supplying content more quickly.

Client: We were thinking it would make more sense to use Adobe Captivate. It’s a really cool program and it’s got a lot of features we could use for our material. 

Me: I use Captivate quite frequently, and yes, it’s a great tool. However, we’ve established that we’re documenting basic processes, correct?

Client: Yes, but Word doesn’t provide the functionality we need. We want to put PDFs of this up on our internal website.

Me: Just so I understand what you’re requesting, let me repeat all of this back to you. Your team would like to create non-interactive, text-based lists in Captivate, publish the end result as a PDF, then upload those PDFs to a website. Is that correct?

Client: (Losing confidence in the plan) Yes…do you pay for Captivate licenses that we can use?

Me: Unfortunately not, that will have to be something your company will need to handle. If you’d like, I can show you how much they cost, and give you an estimate for the amount of people on your team who will need access.

Client: Well, why don’t we just use Word?

Me: That seems to be the most economical option. When do you want them?

The Phonautograph

by Greg Ross

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Phonautogram_-_Scott_1859.jpg

In 1857, Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville patented a device for recording sound: A person spoke or sang into a barrel, causing a membrane of parchment to vibrate and a pig bristle to record a mark on a moving surface of glass or paper.

This was useful in studying the characteristics of sound, but a century and a half would pass before we had the technology to play back the recordings. In 2008, audio historians recovered Scott’s “phonautograms” from the French patent office and converted his waveforms into digital audio files.

The recording below was made on April 9, 1860. It’s the French folk song “Au clair de la lune,” recorded 28 years before Edison’s first wax cylinder.

I’m currently working with an elderly, computer illiterate client whose understanding of what a computer can do seem to be wildly inconsistent.

First she asked me to Photoshop an entire person out of a photo as if it were a simple task. Then literally five minutes later was absolutely amazed to learn that you can draw a line on a computer. She thought I had to hand draw lines and scan them in.

Everythings fucked but here's one nice thing that happened; my grandmother's church agreed to hold every Saturday for several weeks presentation about white privilege- it been the biggest turn out in any event in the church in a year, and it was mainly white people in a room who had to be quiet and listen and forced to realize that they live in a world of privilege. That's happening in a church. In this sort of world. In a real conservative state. A tiny speck of hope, but a nice one nonetheless

Hey, fingers crossed they learn something.

paramount shooting locations 1927

In 1927, Chicago investment bank Halsey, Stuart & Co. published a prospectus inviting its clients to consider investing in the burgeoning motion picture business. Among the illustrations was this Paramount Studios map of international shooting locations in California.

“It was not mere chance that established the motion picture industry in Southern California,” notes the booklet. “The actual localization of production there came through a process of pure competitive selection in which the geographical advantages favorable to producers in that region literally forced competing directors and their companies to come to California — and Hollywood.

“The advantages of dependable sunshine, permitting outdoor production without delays, and of great variety in scenery at close range (the ocean on one side, the deserts, mountains, and forests in other directions), so that the sequence of almost any picture can be suitably filmed with but little cost for travel — all have militated to established Hollywood as the center of the motion picture world.”

(“The Motion Picture Industry as a Basis for Bond Financing,” reprinted in Tino Balio, ed., The American Film Industry, 1985.)

I think I have an answer to your question: being right-wing makes you unfunny, not the other way around. I know this because I am, sadly, unfunny, but I'm also left-wing and I try, though I often fail, to not be a total asshole and be more woke.

Here’s a data point.

Not that it matters cause nothing means nothing anymore, but KellyAnn told the same Bowling Green story to Cosmo, except she made very clear she thought it was a real massacre where soldiers died. And they waited to run it until after she said that shit somewhere else and tried to play it off as a slip of the tongue brainfart. Teen Vogue and Cosmo will lead us where CNN and the NYT fear to tread.

Well there you go: obvious liar is obviously lying.
