Why a .22?

What does reading the news before bed get you? NOTHING GOOD. I had just watched the video of the 9-year old girl being tossed by the bison in Yellowstone as her parents ran off the other direction then dreamed I was playing cards with Brett and Shari and another couple when I saw a freaking mountain lion in the back yard. I was shocked, and immediately wondered where all the children were. I ran to the front door to call the kids in and they were literally lollygagging toward the front door, having been around the side of the house trying to get the mountain lion's attention. The panic and urgency in my voice had no effect on getting them to hustle, and I was especially annoyed at the older boy who purposely slowed down and put his hands in his pockets as he wasn't about to be told to hurry up. That's when a black bear appeared from the other side of the house and headed for the kids. I was screaming at this point holding the screen door open waiting for these slow-walking kids to finally make it to the safety of the house. They all entered and I got the door closed just as the bear made his way to the front door.

Adrenaline now pumping I made my way to the back windows to discover the mountain lion was gone, but there was now a very large Bengal tiger roaming the back yard near the house. What the hell was going on? I noticed the back door wasn't closed and the tiger had started jiggling the handle of the flimsy screen door. I ran to the back door to shut it when the tiger made his way into the house! GF handed me a handgun and I shot the tiger, which seemed to have no effect whatsoever. I looked at the handgun and gave her a bewildering look, "This is a .22?" I exclaimed, flabbergasted. She nodded.

I turned toward the tiger and it was now a tiny tiger-stripped kitten. OMG I JUST SHOT A KITTEN! I was beside myself with grief.

Turns out the .22 didn't hurt the kitten who ran into to the back yard to play.

Conehead

To minimize the fattest of the cats from sucking down entire bowls of food, then creating moist chains of regurgitated, undigested gack 15-minutes later, I started buying IAMS hairball again (which actually works remarkably well) and GF researched anti-reverse-suckhole hardware, something I was not aware even existed - a deep, segmented bowl which minimizes how quickly fatty mcfat can transfer entire piles of whole kernels into her temporary staging area; a miracle of engineering how well this funny looking bowl actually works. We haven't had a slimy surprise in weeks.

Guess who can't place their head into a deep, segmented bowl? Conehead, that's who. Marko's cone of silence is a deterrent to many, otherwise cat-like activities, up to, and including, his snout getting anywhere close to cat food when it is at the bottom of a deep, segmented bowl. As a result I've been feeding him from something akin to a trough, which is basically the opposite of a slow-eating device; troughs are designed to deliver as much food as possible to the eater. Which is why we do NOT use the trough to feed our perpetually gacking cat.

So despite everything else surrounding Marko's care and (literal) feeding, we have Minerva The Large trying thwart my every effort for her own (weight) gain. When the trough is empty, Marko nimbly scoops individual kernels of cat food onto the floor to eat, one at a time. Being underweight due to his recent infection, I want him to eat MORE FOOD, so I put it in the trough. But I have to be quick! Because the moment he's done (and I don't always immediately notice), here comes down-with-the-fatness actually RUNNING to the trough in order to maximize her eating speed. I intervene, relocate the leftover food to the deep, segmented bowl, and before I know it...Marko is pulling out individual kernels of cat foot onto the floor once again, and the entire cycle restarts.

Game Theory Applied to Morality

Huge fan of Game Theory - I love seeing it being appropriately applied to morality. The majority of disagreements I find on social media are little more than dichotomous thinkers applying their subjective views as absolutes to complex scenarios without having even an elementary understanding of dichotomy, logic, application, subjectivity, perspective, complexity, or scenarios. Its an insurmountable shortcoming.

I was today years old when I learned you need to force scp to use scp by using the goddamn -scp flag with scp to fix, "Fatal: Received unexpected end-of-file from server" In other news, are you fucking kidding me?

Restart SMT
1.Restart the smt server by entering "rcsmt restart" into the root shell. This will also restart the http server apache on SMT 11/10, so that apache uses the new certificate.

NOTE: on SMT 12 SP1/2/3 servers run

systemctl restart smt.service

and

systemctl restart apache2

Imagine you’re an average American; you drink beer in the garage and love watching sportsball on the flatscreen. You have a small collection of hand guns in your gun safe and you thank the Lord before every meal. You have a Highschool education, maybe some college, and you work hard for a living and pay your taxes just like every good American.

Suppose you were a "C" student in high school, maybe a low "B" and that job at which you make a living doesn't have anything to do with Constitutional law or International politics, nor did you minor in such during that college stint.

Now imagine the super rich are asked to pay half a percentage more of their billions to fund healthcare for all. Nothing in your life changes. Nothing. Ever. Not even the price of a stamp.

But you've got a pretty good understanding in the difference between Communism, Democracy, Oligarchy, Socialism, and Democratic Socialism, and can speak intelligently on the subject. Or you know, not really, but SOCIALISM = BAD because you respond to everything emotionally, like a Neanderthal without a fully formed cerebral cortex. Logic is one of those things which has always eluded you. Venezuela not Norway because reasons. Fox News reasons.

To add insult to injury, most of the services you currently rely upon, depend upon, and even demand, and possibly defended were once lauded as evil socialism by your father and your father's father. But that different somehow. Different in a way you believe is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT and therefore shouldn't be a part of the same conversation, even though you don't know why, can't explain why, and to be honest, conversations aren't really in your wheelhouse.

Well done, you. Well done.
