Joe Exotic, whose entertaining yet ultimately criminal exploits kept the nation distracted in the early days of the pandemic, has reportedly hired some kind of hideous limousine/pick-up truck hybrid to collect him in the expectation of a Trump pardon. Perris Jones, a reporter KOCO5 in Oklahoma City, posted a photo of the truck—as well as the detail that Exotic will be immediately taken to a secure location upon his release to get his hair done before photos can be taken. Jones reported that Exotic’s team is “absolutely confident” that Trump will come through for him before he leaves office tomorrow.

I never did watch that show, anybody who collects animals like he did can fuck right the fuck off.

His ordering some kind of ugly mullet limo to match his hair seems appropriate though

I have a problem with that. I've had various resins, glues & adhesives on my skin, some staying there until the underlying skin layer falls off. Depends on the bond. That should have been lifting from her scalp in places if it had been on there a month.

When I was in grade school, there was a kids mom that combed his hair with sugar water.

When it dried, it didn't move all day.

He always looked spiffy! :)

U.S. Freezing Storms

https://twitter.com/fred035schultz/stat ... 9712710667

So many places in the U.S. without power, homes getting colder, and freezing temperatures outside becoming so inside. I wonder how many in usually non-freezing areas know to crack their taps to make a tiny water-flow so the pipes don't freeze, crack and flood, be it now or after the pipes start thawing out.

I'm actually warm, as the latest two snowfalls have finally resulted in snow up against the foundation around 1.5 feet deep. Insulates and prevents the cold wind from blowing on it to remove the most heat. Sub zero, in C or F, and I don't even need to light a candle in the bedroom for extra heat.

I'm surprised people with snow blowers don't blow snow up against their foundation for the heating savings.

Thanks for thinking of us in theMidwest, Canoe. It’’s a major disaster here. It took me an hour to drive the 5 miles to the grocery and pharmacy Monday night. I have water, to and 20 gallons bottled. Gas heat and buried electric. Internet is out, but I can use the iPhone.
Multiple states have had multi-vehicle fatal accidents because people don’t adjust their speed to the road conditions as because they don’t stay home and risk the lives of others.

[...]
[...]It’’s a major disaster here.[...]
Fuck!
Some of the stuff people are doing! Like bringing their BBQs indoors!!! Or insulating the cold water pipes inside the building where the supply enters the building!!! NO!!!!!
If you see stupid, poor, useless or dangerous advice on social media, CORRECT IT!
  • Setting your taps to drip is too often not enough to stop pipes from freezing. You need to have a tiny flow to ensure the water in the pipes keeps moving, so it can't freeze. One tap will keep the supply to the building moving, but if the house is freezing inside, you need to have every tap running a tiny flow of water.
  • DO NOT INSULATE the cold water pipes inside your house. ESPECIALLY the supply line to the building. Those pipes need to absorb heat from inside the building to keep from freezing.
  • If you have to leave your house and go some where else as it's freezing and the heat is out, then you NEED TO EMPTY THE WATER OUT OF YOUR PIPES, else you'll be returning to a house that leaks & floods when the pipes thaw out. Turn off the supply to the house first. And empty the electric hot water tank, after shutting off it's power at the breaker.
  • If you still have hot water, don't forget that hot water is a source of heat.
    - Fill containers with hot water. Like a hot water bottle, a container with hot water is now a portable source of heat.
    - Set a container of hot water beside the water supply into the building.
    - You can even bring the garden hose in, lay it on the floor in the basement, attach to hot water, other end drains into a sink - run until it's full of hot water, then shut it off and let the heat in the hose radiate into the house. Run a couple of loops of the hose over the water supply into the building... If you have hot water and multiple hoses, repeat that around the house.
  • If you have some heat inside (sometimes you're the only heat), cover the windows to keep heat in.
    - hang blankets over the windows, cushions stacked on the window sill or stuffed behind the blanket, some for pillows, or put a spare mattress over the entire window.
    - Take those off if the sun is shining on the window - let the sun's heat in.
  • If it's freezing inside and you have to shelter in place:
    - fill containers for drinking water and flush-toilet water - ration both
    - drain the pipes
    - pick one room to shelter in place in - that's now your cabin in the woods
    - gather your meds, first aid kit, flashlights, batteries, phones, chargers, etc., in that room, in a container or backpack, so you can grab that if you have to leave to go elsewhere and not have to spend any time gathering things up or end up forgetting something
    - bring your heat sources to that room - watch out for fires and combustion gases
    - insulate the windows (blankets, pillows, mattresses)
    - Also insulate the doors, even to the rest of the house you're not using. Remember to keep emergency exits quickly available. A single mattress across a door is simple and easy to remove.
    - Remember that heat rises. If your shelter in place room has stairs leading upstairs, see if a blanket across the stairs at their top will stop you from losing heat from where you're sheltering. Better if you can seal the stairs at the lower ceiling level, to reduce heat rising up there, leaving your shelter in place room.
    (I once spent some -40 F to -50 F nights in an un-insulated cottage, toasty in my underwear laying on top of my sleeping bag, on an upper landing of stairs. Everyone else was dressed in their outdoor cloths, hats, scarves & mitts, trying to sleep in their sleeping bags laid out in front of the huge fireplace, the lowest/coldest height in our shelter in place room, plus the cold it was drawing was sucked right across them all night long.)
  • Inside your shelter in place room, use cushions from chairs and sofas to build a fort to shelter in, like the old fashioned beds with the canopy and curtains all around to keep heat in.
    - They're the structure and insulation, along with blankets, mattresses, tables, etc..
    - Blanket makes a good roof, and can often be better insulated by cushions or pillows on top.
    - You can use a large sofa as the base of your fort. It's insulated and up off the cold floor.
    - have your essentials container/backpack in/near your fort, to minimize heat loss when you need to access it
    - if you have a free-standing tent, set it up as your fort. Cushions for floor. Other things to insulate it inside or outside the tent. Tent inside a tent also provides more insulation.
  • Wash your plates outside in the snow by rubbing them with snow.
  • Remember an outdoor BBQ for cooking. DO NOT BRING IT INDOORS - the carbon monoxide will kill you.
    - Check its gas level. If it's natgas tied to the house supply and running, then you can use it to heat water, to put into containers to bring the hot water inside as a heat source.
  • If you - or your neighbours - have hot water somehow, don't forget that you can fill hot water bottles and sealable drink containers or bottles, and put them under the blanket with people or inside their clothes (over their kidneys - good blood flow there to absorb heat, and make them feel warm too).
  • While you have access to data, make sure you obtain emergency numbers, and look up how to take additional measures, for utilities that are out AND for other utilities you may still have.
  • Make sure you let someone you know & trust, know where you are. Keep them updated if you move to another place to shelter.
That's off the top of my head.
There's got to be more information out there. Check the disaster checklists online.

Someone wasn't getting enough attention.
[...]
(He) wanted to prove that the woman who recently became infamous for spraying Gorilla Glue in her hair, was a fraud. His idea was to film himself doing a “Gorilla Glue Challenge” that involved putting some of the ultra-powerful adhesive on the rim of a red Solo cup, taking a drink, and then licking it off. He would record the whole thing for Instagram so that it could be preserved for us, and generations of his descendants, to enjoy. [...]
“I thought it could lick it off kind of to moisten it and pull it right off but that didn’t work.”
[...]
The Solo cup was removed from (his) face at a local emergency room, with a medical technique he described as “painful peeling.” He added that if his self-inflicted injury doesn’t heal properly, the tip of his lip will need to be surgically removed.
[...]
in 2019 he was arrested for licking a tub of Blue Bell ice cream in a Louisiana supermarket and putting it in the freezer

Texas may have had its grid crushed, but here in Missouri things look good for now. Of course I could drone on and on about the lack of underground grids here, and how some areas get mashed when ice storms hit. A few years ago, we had the same kind of storm we always get barreling up the I-44 corridor. Springfield, Mo was sheathed in ice, coming down first as sleet and freezing rain; accumulating on power lines to the point of collapse. What power lines didn’t collapse from the weight of ice were ripped off the poles by falling trees. Emergency crews took along insulated PVC poles to move hot lines, and carried extra chainsaws when traveling to calls. I was amazed by the resilience of the people of Springfield.People opened up space for friends and neighbors, and everyone organized in shifts to clear debris. Crime dropped to an all time low.
P
When confronted with disaster, it seems humans band together with a Black Rock
city sense of do-ocracy that we need to make an every day occurrence. Th community spirit shouldn’t end with the end of the disaster. It’s he job of ALL of us to make sure that happens; THAT SHOULD BE THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSON WE BRING HOME FROM BRC. If we don’t buy in and get shit done, what does it say about us?

2. Is it alarm-bells/spidey-senses triggering on sub-consciously noticed senses (possibly combined with some 'that shouldn't be there'), that were too low to gain concious notice.
3. Or sometimes something that would fall somewhere under parapsychology.
