20160927 01:28 Skidmark I'm surprised and delighted at how little I care about the debate.
20160926 23:12 badanov Some late Monday night Mothers of Invention:

20160926 17:57 Thing From Snowy Mountain Wow. The shooter in Houston turned out to be a Hindu Nuthin'.
20160926 17:26 Mullah Richard I'm coming in from the northwest, so O'Hare is actually closer unless I'm flying Southwest or some obscure Delta flight.

There IS a good deal of construction around ORD, though. Took me miles out of my way to get to my normal off-site cark park. Midway is much simpler in that regard.

I'll check out the Central Ave. route next time.

20160926 17:24 Skidmark Mom asked young Sally "What happened at school today?"
Sally said, "I saw Jonny's peepee."
Concerned, Mom asked "What did you think of that?"
Sally replied, "It reminded me of a peanut."
Relieved, Mom said, "Why, because it was just a little nubbin?"
"No", Sally replied, "Salty."
20160926 17:17 Skidmark I'm going to tailgate the debate at home.
20160926 16:16 Shipman So we tail-gating ?
20160926 09:42 3dc Closest airport requires a private jet. Not that flush. That would be DuPage airport in St Charles.
20160926 09:40 3dc From i-55 I usually take Central to W55th instead of Cicero - which I despise too.
Not saying bad things don't happen on Central - just its easier to see stuff there. Then I am coming from the west burbs so I take 355 south to 55 then the slant up to Central. Distance is shorter for me to O'Hare but it's mainly back roads and roads around O'Hare seem to be continuously under major construction.

20160926 00:49 badanov A mother had 3 virgin daughters. They were all getting married within a short time period. Because Mom was a bit worried about how their sex life would get started,
she made them all promise to send a postcard from the honeymoon with a few words on how marital sex felt.

The first girl sent a card from Hawaii two days after the wedding. The card said nothing but “Nescafe”. Mom was puzzled at first, but then went the kitchen and got out
the Nescafe jar. It said: “Good till the last drop.”

Mom blushed, but was pleased for her daughter.

The second girl sent the card from Vermont a week after the wedding, and the card read:”Benson & Hedges”. Mom now knew to go straight to her husband’s cigarettes, and
she read from the Benson & Hedges pack: “Extra long. King Size”.

She was again slightly embarrassed but still happy for her daughter.

The third girl left for her honeymoon in the Caribbean. Mom waited for a week, nothing. Another week went by and still nothing. Then after a whole month, a card
finally arrived. Written on it with shaky handwriting were the words “British Airways”.

Mom took out her latest Harper’s Bazaar magazine, flipped through the pages
fearing the worst, and finally found the ad for British Airways.

The ad said:

“Three times a day, seven days a week, both ways.”

Mom fainted.

20160925 14:58 Thing From Snowy Mountain Damn, Ars Technica is obtuse these days. Just got back from skimming the thread on the whole Oculus Shitposting thing.
20160925 13:49 Mullah Richard It's that trip down Cicero Ave. that always bothers me, 3dc. Especially south of the Stevenson.

Suppose there are other ways to get there, but that's the shortest route for me.
20160925 11:12 trailing wife Arabs generally don't booze it up, or consume drugs.

They aren't supposed to booze up. Drugs are not forbidden in the same way, I believe. This CNN report from 2010 gives an idea of the scope of the problem. I suspect, given the mass production of Captagon by ISIS for their own troops and as a key export item to the region, the problem is worse now.
20160924 14:48 Thing From Snowy Mountain Orange is the new yellow. We're going to make Carcosa great again.
20160924 14:42 BrerRabbit setting ookie on new tablet. hi all. go big orange.
20160924 14:19 3dc Skidmark - living in the Chicago area I much prefer Midway over Ohare.
20160924 13:44 badanov Arabs generally don't booze it up, or consume drugs.

They are all natural, all crazy, all the time.
20160924 11:38 Pappy I think someone at the news agency was posting while under the influence.

Don't discount the facile Arab mind. No altering-substance required.

(yes I know the Iranians published it. But the 'source' was likely Arab and the intended audience wasn't the Israelis or the West.)
20160923 21:15 trailing wife Snowy Thing, The Times of Israel had the same report about Aleppo datelined 9/22 at 7:21 pm as "Russain state media claimed..." as reported by the Arabic language version of the Sputnik news agency; the Israeli government did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Apparently the Iranian Fars news agency was also involved.

I think someone at the news agency was posting while under the influence.
20160923 19:02 Thing From Snowy Mountain Currently skimming: https://www.amazon.com/Orientalist-Solving-Mystery-Strange-Dangerous-ebook/dp/B000FCJZ5Y/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1474671385&sr=8-1

20160923 16:12 Shipman I was in my the Federal Reserve is illegal mode.
20160923 12:13 Thing From Snowy Mountain Ship, If you wanted to build a pipeline from Qatar to the Med there are lots of options cheaper than a multi billion dollar war that's going to blow up lots of infrastructure.
20160923 09:57 Shipman Then it was about a threat to the petro-dollar, French and Indian War? Yep, petro-shilling. No coincidence that this battle was fought in the SAME state as the Drake field.
20160922 20:49 Thing From Snowy Mountain I also don't think this was about a natural gas pipeline.
20160922 20:45 Thing From Snowy Mountain Somehow I doubt there's a big Israeli/Turkish/Qatari conspiracy.
20160922 20:43 Thing From Snowy Mountain Ok thanks Bad.

20160922 20:29 badanov I don't expect there will be.
20160922 19:52 badanov Still nothing from Russian language press.
20160922 16:39 Deacon Blues I wonder why it's caled de-planing. Actually the plane de-peoples.
20160922 16:35 badanov Some Thursday afternoon Nothing but Thieves:

20160922 14:11 Skidmark With the plane switching, delays and rerouting I found from my fellow passengers there were no checked luggage issues.
Every item was carefully and accurately transferred. Interestingly enough many found their bags had two(2) open inspection stickies.
20160922 14:05 Skidmark Granted the fleet is aging, maintenance is poor and there is a dumbening of the workforce, but with train derailments, shooters, riots and east coast bombers my 'conspiracy critic' has started whispering, "How many of these events are intercepted Mass Destruction Threats (MDT)."
20160922 14:00 Skidmark Last week my lovely wife was returning thru Chicago when the entire airport was shutdown for 2 hours, due to 'possible lightning from an upcoming storm'. She sent me pictures of a delightfully clear (brown) sky. Not a cloud in sight.
20160922 13:55 Skidmark I flew out of Chicago Sunday.
Nicely boarded and doors closed with book in hand when the crew announced the plane was declared 'unfit by maintenance'.
We were directed to gather all of our belongings and exit the aircraft.
Fellow next to me said "DogGammit(sic), that's the second time that's happened to me, TODAY!"
We deplaned and within 30 mins another was found with which we could fully board into the same seats. Good luck with the luggage, eh?
20160922 13:45 Thing From Snowy Mountain And the possible reliability problems are why I said 'do with the link what you want.'
20160922 13:42 Thing From Snowy Mountain TW: I don't believe the report, I as m just mildly interested in where the propaganda originated, but not really.
20160922 07:32 Pappy I suspect Sputnik got it from Iran, who got it from Hesb'allah. Who got it from who knows where.

But it does sound quite... Arab.
20160922 06:30 badanov The original source is Iranian.
20160922 02:33 trailing wife Al Ahram (Egypt) and An Nahar (Lebanon) also have nothing.

Sputnik Arabic Language sounds like it ought to be Russian propaganda. Is it?
20160922 02:31 trailing wife Ynet and The Times of Israel had nothing like that, Snowy Thing.

I can't imagine Israel trusting any other than the Americans on that list, nor being in the mountains above Aleppo at all, nor directing Arab rebel fighters, though I admit to knowing absolutely nothing about their clandestine operations.
