I Am Knot Alone

If you’ve ever had a crisis of confidence over some of the most basic bits of life ...

you are not alone!!

From Instapundit, who linked to Manolo For Men, who linked to The New York Times, who linked to Runner’s World, comes a short post, complete with a 2 minute video on

How To Tie Your Shoes

So simple ... yet 4 levels of links? That implies we all have those moments of self-doubt, even about simple stuff we learned as little kids!

Right over Left, then Left over Right. This makes a Square Knot, also called a Reef Knot.
Right over Left, make a loop, then make your second loop and go Left over Right. This makes a Shoelace Knot, though properly it should be called a Double Slipped Reef Knot.
When you tie it right and pull it tight, the loops and aglets lie to the side. When you tie it wrong (ie Right over Left then Right over Left) one loop points towards your toe and the other loop points towards your leg. Spaz-o.

Crisis of Confidence? Yes. I had to go and check. Because sometimes I get that up-pointing loop thing. Does this mean I’m such a simpleton I don’t know how to tie my own shoes? No. It turns out I was properly instructed as a child and have been doing it properly my entire life (phew!!). But a few seconds of experimenting showed me that if your hand twists while you’re pushing the second loop through, you can turn over the second loop which puts it on the wrong side (front vs rear, ie upside down) relative to the first loop. So even though you’ve tied your shoes properly, you still wind up with loops that are a bit twisted. Semi-spaz-o.

Want a better way? Use an Al Bundy, aka a Shoe Salesman’s Knot. Right over Left, make a loop, then the bunny goes twice around the tree, form your second loop, then Left over Right as the bunny goes back down both the holes! This one lies straight even if your second loop goes through upside down.


Yeah, I know, I’m mixing my knot metaphors, combining the square knot words with the bowline description. But that second trip around the tree makes the double slipped reef knot more like a taughtline hitch around a bight, secured by an overhand knot; when pulled tight it binds much better than a simple shoelace knot. And that means it takes a much firmer tug on the laces to untie it, hopefully more than can be produced by the sticky little fingers attached to annoying children in the shoe store.

Ok, sure, fine, “Ian”, the apparent online master of How To Tie Your Shoes pages, from whom I snagged the graphic even though his is tied backwards to mine, calls this one the Better Bow shoelace knot, and he also has a variant called the Surgeon’s Shoelace knot that loops the whole bow around twice instead. Turns out that there are loads of pages out there on how to tie your own shoes! Mass misunderstanding, huge numbers of people with nagging doubts, attempts to help parents with one of the more difficult bits of early childhood? Maybe. Once mastered though, it can be a vector for expressing your individualism. Kids today probably just use Velcro tabs instead.

Don’t Wanna

I have to take a few days off from blogging. At least blogging about the news. I can’t take it any more.

The oil spill is worse than ever. How big is it? Pick a number you’re happy with. Nobody really knows. Leadership from Obama on this? What a fucking fiasco. NONE. From day one. Hillary was right - remember that “3am phone call” campaign ad she had? Obama is a total loser. He’s nothing more than an agitator. A pretender with no leadership qualities at all.

Europe offered us a bunch of ships to help clean up the oil spill. DC turned them down.

There’s a factory up in Maine that has miles and miles and miles of oil absorbing booms and barriers, and can make more at a moment’s notice. No sale; the government isn’t interested.

Leaving the oil rig burning would have burned off a whole lot of that spilled oil. Can’t do that, it would pollute the air. So put the fire out.

Using the coagulant/detergent/chemical - whatever that stuff is that blobs up the oil in the water - would have stopped another huge part of the slick. Can’t have that, it would pollute the water. Like a few billion gallons of crude oil isn’t pollution? So stop using it.

I could go on and on ... this rig could have been positioned in 500 feet of water, but we can’t have that because NIMBY says no oil rigs in sight of land. Asshats. Rahm Emanuel lives rent free in an apartment in DC. BP is the landlord. It’s endless.

The other day I read how Obassholema is going to allow whales to be hunted again. What’s next, he’ll allow clearcut foresting in Sequoia National Park? This spoogesplat of a president is doing his best to piss off the very greenies that put him in office!

Retail sales are “unexpectedly” down again. Yeah right. Unexpected by whom? The rest of us can see the economy going to hell. Nobody believes a word the media or the government says about employment figures anymore. This week’s numbers were totally fudged; something like 95% of the “new jobs” were short term census positions created by the government. WTF. They’re not even fooling stupid people any longer.

I can’t find any good news. I can’t even find any funny news. Chris Matthews runs another hit piece on the Tea Party; oh he’s so afraid because they have guns, and he just knows it’s going to turn violent. Utter libel. Sure, we’ve got guns. Most of them are at home. Do people actually listen to this moron? Let’s face it, if the bullets really start flying, Matthews is going to be target number 3 or 4.

Malkin and Moonbattery and Ace and everyone is chock full of the news stories of corruption, incompetence, moral decay, economic unreality, and downright evil, every single day. And that’s just their coverage on the government!

It’s tiring. I need to go find a Rent-a-Puppy and play with some cute little animals for a while. The world is going to hell faster and faster. December 23, 2012? We’ll be lucky if we make it that far.


Ok, that helps a little.

family day

I have to drive most of the way across the state today to pick up the mother-in-law from the hospital. She had a hysterectomy Monday. Everything went fine. So now she comes home, so her daughters can wait on her hand and foot.

It’s going to be a very long day for me. Very. Very. Long.

Update: finally home, 11pm. No problems, our patient is resting comfortably. Just a very long day. Hospitals never do anything non-emergency in a hurry, so it took a while to get her out. At least it felt like a long while - 2 or 3 lifetimes actually - but it was only 3 hours. Many hours spent this afternoon setting up her house for comfort, safety, and preparedness. Don’t know what else can be done, so she’ll have things very easy for her recovery period.

Agent Provocateur

This is what happens when we put a weak, anti-semitic, pro-muslim pretender in the White House. And this is just the beginning.

Red Crescent Next In Line To Test Israel

Pledges To Send 2 Aid Ships To Break Gaza Blockade

Iranian Navy To Escort The Ships?

The Iranian Red Crescent has decided to send two aid ships to Gaza this week in the latest bid to break the blockade imposed on the Palestinian territory by Iran?s regional archfoe Israel.

Red Crescent director for international affairs Abdolrauf Adibzadeh told the state IRNA news agency late on Sunday that the decision to send the ships was taken after a meeting with the foreign ministry.

‘One ship will carry donations made by the people and the other will carry relief workers. The ships will be sent to Gaza by end of this week,’ Adibzadeh said. He said the Red Crescent has called for Iranian volunteers to act as relief workers and accompany the vessels.

‘Volunteers who want to go to Gaza and help the oppressed people of occupied Palestine can refer to the Red Crescent website and register,’ Adibzadeh said. He said the initial plan was to send the ships through an intermediary country, but ‘based on a decision by the society, they will be sent directly.’ He added that the aid would consist of foodstuffs and medicines.

The Iranian Red Crescent had previously sent an aid ship carrying food and medicines to Gaza in December 2008 but it was prevented from reaching the territory by the Israeli navy.

If aid ships want to try breaking Israel’s naval blockade on Gaza again, they’ll have the full force and military escort of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard to do it, a spokesman for the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei said today. “Iran’s Revolutionary Guards naval forces are fully prepared to escort the peace and freedom convoys to Gaza with all their powers and capabilities,” said the rep.

“If the Supreme Leader issues an order for this then the Revolutionary Guard naval forces will do their best to secure the ships,” the spokesman continued. “It is Iran’s duty to defend the innocent people of Gaza.”

This is an outright provocation for war.

Not that a land war between Israel and Iran would be easy, with those other countries in between them. But an air war and a sea war could happen.

Israel has a legal sea blockade around Gaza, even though Egypt has now capitulated and opened it’s borders. Israel will allow aid ships to dock in it’s ports, and the cargoes can then be transshipped if they meet Israel’s list of allowable items. So there is no real point in “breaking the blockade” other than world theater.

If ships cross into the blockaded zone the Israelis will stop them. If the Iranian Navy escorts those aid ships and a) gives them fire support and/or b) crosses the blockade line, then this is a deliberate act of war.

The ayatollahs would never had dared such a move when Bush was president. Like Osama bin Laden, they understand the “strong horse, weak horse” argument, but right now our horse is a jackass who can at best bray in the wrong direction.

Hey, I know! Maybe he can bow to all parties involved, and have them all over for a beer!

Not A News Item

Pakistani citizen caught crossing border into Arizona

Posted - 6/3/2010 at 4:21PM

TUCSON - U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials confirm with News4, a Pakistani citizen crossed the border illegally from Mexico into Arizona on May 20th.

ICE says the man was apprehended by Border Patrol on the Tohono O’odham reservation and turned over to ICE.

My guess is that ICE catches about 1 out of every 1000 illegals who cross the border. So, how many illegal Pakis do you think are in the country? And how many total, unsavory middle east types? They can’t all work at the local gas station or convenience store you know.

Outright racism on my part? Maybe. I’m not sure. But our borders are highly porous and we have lots of enemies around the globe. And a lot of them can change clothes and pass for Mexicans if folks aren’t looking very closely. And political correctness demands not only that you don’t look closely, but that you don’t even look at all.

h/t to CMBlake6, who posted about it and more.

What, you want more?

Ok, read this then. Don’t waste your time reading the comments; people have not changed their stances one single iota since 2003 and still get just as worked up about it. “Bush lied, people died” forever. Yeah. And I still remember seeing the satellite pictures on TV of a big convoy of trucks crossing over the western border, some months before the shooting started. Nothing to see here, move along.

Any relation between Story A and Story B? Well, not really ... but if you can get people and drugs across the border, you can probably get damn near anything else. Remember back a few years ago when that wiseguy snuck the circus elephants and a mariachi band across?


Something else to read: it may be time to cash in your 401Ks and your IRAs, pay the taxes, and convert them to Roths.

Not Even Close

90 kilos is 198 pounds. 256 pounds is 116 kilos.

Nice Try Oz

Australian cafe claims world’s biggest burger

A Sydney cafe is flipping out after cooking a hamburger believed to be the world’s biggest. The Ambrosia on the Spot cafe in Randwick began creating the giant patty at 9.45pm Saturday. Four men were needed to flip the bulging burger, which at 90 kilograms, weighed in at more than the average human.

Cafe owners Joe and Iman El-Ajouz said the burger was finally placed in a bun around 11.45 Sunday morning, eclipsing the previous record of 84 kg, set in Michigan in the United States.

“Just flipping the patty was the main challenge for us, but it all went well,” Iman El-Ajouz said.

The giant burger contained the giant beef patty, 120 eggs, 150 slices of cheese, 1.5 kg of beetroot, 2.5 kg of tomatoes and almost 2 kg of lettuce all topped off with a special sauce on a giant sesame seed bun. It was eaten by employees at the cafe, along with supporters such as a bread supplier and a butcher.

Well, maybe it’s the biggest burger in Australia - and what’s with the ten dozen eggs, anyway? - but it comes up short. Right around the corner from me, the Clinton Station Diner (web page not updated) will make you a 256 pound hamburger, special order only. 58 pounds heavier than the Aussie’s “record setter”. If you and 9 friends can eat the thing in 8 hours, not only is it free, but you can win $5000. They also make a 100 pounder, and a 50 pounder, both special order. Their several “smaller” burgers, 7, 3, 2, and 1 pounds, are regular menu items. Give me a few hours and I think I might be able to eat a 1 pound burger. Maybe.

So if we’re looking at setting actual world records ... you’ve got a long way to go, down under. Or, at the very least, the UN needs to set some international rules, and try borrowing McDonald’s “weight before cooking” mantra, and a maximum fat percentage. That way, a 200 pound burger might cook down to 140 pounds, yet the burger as served might weigh 220 pounds. Just to avoid confusion.

the “little” CSD burgers, available 24-7

Off With His Head

Just because Peiper is MIA, getting the best tan of his life, doesn’t mean things have stopped happening in England. Here’s one he’d like, a real “thumbs down” post.

Gladiator Cemetery Found In York


Dozens of headless skeletons excavated from a northern English building site appear to be the remains of Roman gladiators, one of whom had bites from a lion, tiger, bear or other large animal, archaeologists said Monday.

Experts said new forensic evidence suggests the bones belong to the professional fighters, who were often killed while entertaining spectators.

Most of the skeletons were male and appeared stronger and taller than the average Roman, with signs of arm-muscle stress that suggest weapons training that began in the men’s teenage years.

The team investigating the remains said that one of the best clues was carnivore tooth marks found on the hip and shoulder of one of the skeletons.

“The presence of bite marks is one of the strongest pieces of evidence suggesting an arena connection. It would seem highly unlikely that this individual was attacked by a tiger as he was walking home,” said Michael Wysocki, a lecturer in forensic anthropology and archaeology who studied the skeletons. The bites were believed to have caused the person’s death, he said.

York — about 200 miles (322 kilometers) north of London — was one of the largest cities in Roman Britain, and experts believe bands of gladiators touring the Roman Empire occasionally traveled here to put on fighting shows.

Wysocki said gladiators were often beheaded as an act of mercy after suffering horrific injuries during their fights. All of the skeletons were buried with pottery, animals or other offerings, suggesting they were respected people, not criminals.

nana na na, nana na na, hey hey hey, goodbye

Jew Hating Leftist Reporter Helen Thomas

Retires “Effective Immediately”

Wow, even double standard PC couldn’t save her gnarly withered old ass

Veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas announced her retirement Monday following an uproar over comments she made on camera last month about Jews in Israel.

Hearst Corporation, which employed Thomas as a columnist, put out a brief story by Hearst News Service announcing the retirement “effective immediately.”

The announcement came after the White House Correspondents Association decried her remarks as “indefensible” and began to consider whether Thomas should continue to have the privilege of a front-row seat in the briefing room. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs called her remarks “offensive and reprehensible” on Monday, as other former White House spokesmen called for Thomas to be fired.

The controversy escalated quickly over the weekend after the video surfaced online showing Thomas last month saying that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine,” suggesting they go instead to Germany, Poland and the United States. The video, shot by New York Rabbi David Nesenoff, was posted on several prominent websites and prompted a swift apology from Thomas on Friday.

* Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!

Another one under the bus? Probably. But I just love it when the news reporters become the news themselves.

I’d put up a picture, but please. This is Helen Thomas we’re talking about, and that could break your monitor.

for those who dare ...

In India Your Life Is Worth $1.74

India: 7 Convicted For Bhopal Disaster

Talk about lengthy court cases! The Bhopal disaster happened more than 25 years ago, when Union Carbide accidentally released poison gas that killed 4,000 people. Lingering effects raised the death toll to about 15,000 within a couple years. And the lawsuit has been tied up in court ever since.

An Indian court Monday convicted seven former senior employees of Union Carbide’s Indian subsidiary of “death by negligence” for their roles in the Bhopal gas tragedy that left an estimated 15,000 people dead more than a quarter century ago in the world’s worst industrial disaster.

The former employees, many of them in their 70s, were sentenced to two years in prison and ordered to pay fines of 100,000 rupees ($2,175) apiece. All seven were released on bail shortly after the verdict.

The subsidiary, Union Carbide India Ltd., was convicted of the same charge and ordered to pay a fine of rupees 500,000 ($10,870). Union Carbide eventually sold its shares in the subsidiary company, which was renamed Eveready Industries India.

India’s Central Bureau of Investigation, the country’s top investigative agency, has said the plant had not been following proper safety procedures before the disaster.

Early on Dec. 3, 1984, a pesticide plant run by Union Carbide leaked about 40 tons of deadly methyl isocyanate gas into the air in the city of Bhopal in central India, quickly killing about 4,000 people. The lingering effects of the poison raised the death toll to about 15,000 over the next few years, according to government estimates.

So there you go. 7 X $2175 + $10870 = $26,095. Divided by 15,000 leaves you $1.74.

This math does not include the $470 million settlement that Union Carbide paid the government of India in 1989. The $1.74 number is punitive damages levied against the convicted parties. But even taking that larger amount into the calculation, the final result is a mere $31,335 per person. Life is pretty cheap in the Turd World.

Pain In The Neck

Sometimes I slightly hate being Mr. Fixit.

“Can you get new wheels for our table? The old ones broke!” phones in my doctor customer. The wheels on their 25 year old electrically adjustable instrument table wore out. That model is no longer made. The wheels are actually casters, and have threaded spindles. This makes them pretty rare right there. The casters were made by SKK, an Asian company that does not import their products into the USA as far as I can tell. Not that that matters; the instrument table was made in Japan. SKK doesn’t make the model of caster that I need anymore either. Of course! So I did a lot of fruitless searching online from the office today, and came up with nothing.

So I went home. Sat down at my PC, and Googled up “metric threaded spindle medical caster” and found a whole selection of what I need at First hit. Son. OF. A. Beach.

So now that’s it’s pouring rain, I have to go back down there, jack one of the casters off, take it to Home Depot to see if it’s a 12mm thread or some standard American thread, then I can order what they need.

Looks like I’m also going to be replacing a through-the-wall air conditioner. I want to talk the doctor into spending the extra bucks to get a Friedrich Kuhl Plus model, swanky swanky, but I have to talk to the factory Monday to make sure it will fit a Fedders “A” sleeve. Or the existing WSC sleeve. Or whether I’ll have to rough out a new opening. Oh joy.

I’m going to have to charge him for all this extra work for these. It’s already eaten up half my day, and I still have to go down to the other office and clean that one.

Put ‘em on commission

Yes, as usual I’m late to the party. I only discovered Jackie Mason since he’s been a contributing commentator on WorldNetDaily.

I know, I’m showing my age. Mr. Mason did this routine during the Reagan Administration. But his solution is timeless, timely, and something we citizens/voters should consider.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
