The Thread for the Sake of a Thread Thread

A thread dedicated to idle chit chat. Why not?

Dinner is all finished and Mrs Slave and kids are off for their nightly run around the block. Peace at last. I will give Mrs Slave her dues. She makes a damn good spag bol these days.

A great thread here. I get home and the kids are showered and fed. Mrs ABs had half a day off and made use of it. Now we have to get the rest of the shit needed for home loan application. Lucky my significant other is so on to it.

Anyone else got some massive hornets/wasps buzzing round their place? I thought that shit happened in spring when they were making a nest.
But last couple of days there have been about 4 or 5 of those big old angry buggers swarming near the front door.

Did the rounds, no nests or even partial nests being formed, and got some 5 meter spray stuff thats great for tagging em and jumping back inside before they attack.
Just can't figure out why they are around THIS time of the year.

Btw, The coffee here's great! :thumbsup:

No but hundreds of bats this year trying to sleep behind the storm shuuters. They are driving Mrs Slave nuts. There doesn't seem to be any solution either.

Just made a coffee myself. How do you rate the coffee here generally? To me it's pretty good but then compared to what I am used to .....

Well I gotta say, I have become addicted to ice coffees at home. No I don't brew a pot, I use the instant stuff.
20% water, dump in a nice heaping spoon of instant coffee, toss in a liquid sugar if you like, add milk to colour.

But for the weekends or when I'm feeling energetic before I leave for work, tis some nice coffee.
Got a couple of care packages of Timmy's coffee from Canada, which were great but oddly enough ran into some discounted vietnamese coffee at Kaldi Coffee and tried it, was HELLA strong but very tasty. Just cut the amount by about 10 or 20 percent and its great!
I'd love to give you the name but... I can't read it :D

In my view, since taking office, Obama hasn't reminded Americans enough of the eight years of total incompetence he inherited from the Bush years. Two wars, a bankingl and Wall Street environment where the SEC, FDIC, et. al. were MIA or whose overseers were gorging at the easy money gravy train themselves. Even his detractors have to admit, if they are honest, that Obama walked into the biggest shitstorm in the past 80 years. Give the guy a break.

An interesting set of claims (probably facts?) about voting machines in the US.

I'm not totally sure what to make of the whole Diebold mess. Partisan stuff aside, as a computer programmer, I can attest that making an application which collects and counts votes is not that hard. CS majors have to write programs more complex than that for their theses. On the other hand, they're a big huge corporation and their product sells for lots of money, and it's a bit of a joke that there's a direct correlation between the shittiness of code, the size of the company that built it, and the price being charged for it. "Enterprisey."

I don't think voting machines are inherently evil at all. Particularly for those with special needs, who are too arthritic (or what-have-you) to hold a pen or chad puncher or too visually impaired to see the text on a paper ballot, something with a screen may be easier to use. I think the idea of forever abandoning voting machines because of problems in the current batch is throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

Maybe the answer is for voting machine hardware and software to be open sourced. That way its quality could theoretically be vetted by anyone in the world, while also making the technology available to poorer nations (often more in need of accurate ballot tabulation than anyone) for just the cost of manufacturing the devices. If the Obama administration just said the word and appointed a couple project leaders, I'm sure there'd be incredible support for such an idea from open source developers around the world, and we might even have the machines ready to vote the bum out in 2012.

An excellent idea. This really is a sitter for open source.

I'm just more than a bit shocked that a country as technically advanced and democratically grounded could get into such a horrible mess over something like voting machines. Just goes to show. The price of freedom, vigilance and all that.

You guys know about kirare-yaku, right? They're the actors in period dramas who specialise in getting killed--usually by the hero during the ten-baddies-to-one-hero sword fight and usually with overly dramatic death throes. It's quite a storied profession, but as period dramas become less popular there are fewer and fewer people who want to become a kirare-yaku.

Anyway, that got me thinking: could the idea of an actor specialising in one, minor, role--hell, usually just one scene--be transplanted into Hollywood? Could you have guys who only play the role of the wino who looks on goggle-eyed as something incredible happens, then looks at his bottle of plonk and throws it to the ground with a crash? How about an actor who never plays any role except the evil cowboy henchman shooting at the hero cowboy from his hideout on the roof of a nearby building and who gets plugged and falls off the roof with great histrionics?

I know there are character actors and that some actors get typecast, but what about actors who choose to only ever play one, minor role whose only line is "Arrrrrgh"?

Sounds like every Stormtrooper ever! But, I think those types of actors in Hollywood are usually the stuntmen/stuntwomen.

Lemmings, I'm not sure if it really counts, but you'll notice that Hollywood movies almost never feature Asian actors as anything other than damsels in distress (for the ladies) or martial artists (for the guys and sometimes the ladies too). In fact, when Harold and Kumar came out, there was a bit of a fuss in the media for it bucking this trend, but it was a friggin' stoner movie, and a pretty piss poor one at that (though to be fair, I've yet to see an entertaining one) - not exactly compelling cinema.

On the other hand, they recently made a crap movie based on the Chun-Li character from the Street Fighter video game series, the character is, as you can probably guess, Chinese. But the actor they got to play her part was some white chick named Kristen or something like that. They didn't even use an Asian martial artist to portray a character who is an Asian martial artist!

I would just like to point out that this movie was unbelievably bad. So bad, in fact, it went all the way round the spectrum back into the territory of "awesome comedy".

It all started in the early 1960s when Micky Rooney played a Japanese neighbor in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' with fake buck teeth, slanted eyes, big, round, black, Japanese-period eyeglasses, making fun of the r/l pronunciation, etc.. Ah, Hollywood. :oops: Apparently Pat 'Karate Kid sensei' Morita wasn't available for that role at the time.

I can go further back than that: Charlie Chan was a Chinese detective in a series of books which were adapted for movies. The early movies featured Korean and Japanese actors, but then… Not quite as negative or blatant a stereotype as Rooney's, but still "yellowface."

You know the old joke/adage that if you want to be a real blues man/woman you have to get yourself a blues name based on the "Blind Lemon Jefferson" system? I.e., first name an illness (preferably an adjective), second name a fruit, surname an American president? Well, naturally there are sites on the internet that automatically generate these names for you, but there's this one site that is infinitely more hilarious than the others simply because it has more ailments and fruit than anyone else. It's killing me! :rotfl:

Some examples...
  • Lactose Intolerant Mulberry Hoover
  • Vasculitic Coconut Hayes
  • Breast Cancer Tangerine Arthur
  • Pneumococcal Mandarin Ford
  • Clubfoot Palmetto Harding
  • Cancer Club Apple Truman
  • Quadriplegic Saguaro Wilson
Man, I'm easily amused...

(Also, generate your own pop, rock, rap and country stage names).

Edit: Someone, please, help me! I can't stop looking at this site. It's just generated the blues name
  • Mitro Valve Prolapsin' Snake Fruit Washington
...and I think I'm going to pee myself! :rotfl: This has got to stop!

has anything to do with desk research of a fowl nature?

Was that supposed to have two 'g's -- as in 'egg'?

You'll find the Google ad down at the bottom of the board's main index page. At least that's where I copied that from.
