Oh, and 1 millionth of a mile = 1/16th of an inch.

Bonk Bonk On The Head Hot Links

Sunday, 3 November 2019


Must read. These never-ending kangaroo court house proceedings are dangerous to our country, no matter what political party you align with. If every future election can be negated by one political party via majority fiat, we’re done for.


True.

Nice catch.

Dear Lady Twist” made it to No. 9 in 1962, and was perhaps the first ska song to hit the U.S. charts, unless you count “My Boy Lollipop.”

“My Boy Lollipop” 1956, 1964 & 1984. Song history here:

The original song, “My Girl Lollypop”, was written by Robert Spencer of the doo-wop group The Cadillacs. Notorious record company executive Morris Levy agreed to purchase the song from Spencer. Although not involved in writing the song, Levy and alleged gangster Johnny Roberts listed themselves as the song’s authors. In an effort to avoid sharing any royalties with Spencer, Levy removed Spencer’s name from the original writing credits. Levy even claimed that Robert Spencer was his pseudonym.

[CORRECTIVE UPDATE: Apparently the story posted by The Federalist on 27 September 2019 (linked at top) is inaccurate. The US Intel Community accepts hearsay (info from second-hand sources) but won’t act on it unless they uncover first-hand corroboration. If there’s no corroboration, the hearsay is dismissed as such. In other words, the rules did not change, but their website and the reporting form did.]

The Warm List was last updated in 2012.

Footnote (September 2015) Why the list stopped growing.
The time it takes to process a new entry increases approximately with the square of the list length, after checking for duplications, spoofs etc. Starting it was based on the naïve assumption that the rate of appearances would decline as opposing evidence accumulated, but the reverse happened. That’s the difference between science and religion. […] There have since been hundreds more claims of an increasingly ludicrous nature.

And The Warm List compiler was right.


Listen to this [via].

At 0:38, “Teacher” Martha Readyoff actually asked Bernie Sanders, “Educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address Climate Catastrophe?

Look how CNN rephrased her question:

Bernie responded “YES.” Anyone else smell eugenics? I do.

Pheeew.

Papa Charlie Jackson‘s “Airy Man Blues” (1924) had some unusual chord changes.


Grog” is old Brit naval slang for “grogham,” a cloak worn by Vice Admiral Edward Vernon (known as “Old Grogham”) who realized that sailors were hoarding their daily rum rations for later binges. In 1740 he decreed:

“To Captains of the Squadron! Whereas the Pernicious Custom of the Seamen drinking their Allowance of Rum in Drams, and often at once, is attended by many fatal Effects to their Morals as well as their Health, the daily allowance of half a pint a man is to be mixed with a quart of water, to be mixed in one Scuttled Butt kept for that purpose, and to be done upon Deck, and in the presence of the Lieutenant of the Watch, who is to see that the men are not defrauded of their allowance of Rum.”

THAT likely pissed off a lot of swabs. [USNI has more here.]


“On August 29, 1916, the U.S.S. Memphis was wrecked on the beach at Santo Domingo City, Santo Domingo, by enormous seas which were unaccompanied by any wind whatsoever.” [Eyewitness story here.]
