    I’m an Aaron Clarey fan (he advertises on this site. See Asshole Consulting). Read his “The Curse of the High IQ” on how high IQ people are shunned and marginalized by society.

    Explains a lot.

    • June 29, 2016 at 11:09 pm

      Since checking him out after a mention here, I like Aaron, though not quite as much as he himself does I think.

      He’s a funny guy, smart, brilliant when it comes to making a buck off others’ insecurities, and I do love his flipping off of all that is PC.

      But he’s an entertainer, not to be taken too seriously as to his advice and proclamations, to wit: some of the dumbest people I’ve ever met were some of the highest on the IQ chart.

      And sometimes he’s even a little dangerous; check out his vid on precious metal investing to see him holding up a couple of nickels from the 50’s and a few from the 90’s and saying that since the former are pre-’64 they are silver while the new ones are not, even clinking the older ones saying they have a different sound because of the silver content. Now if he’d been holding dimes, quarters, or halves he’d have been okay, but the problem is that the only nickels that contain any silver at all are the 35% silver ones from ’42-’45, so-called war nickels which were alloyed with silver as nickel was a strategic war material. Other than that, they’re an alloy of nickel, which is kinda why they’re called, you know, nickels…and you don’t even need an IQ in the triple digits to know that.

      Some of his other advice and pronouncements about silver are pretty seriously flawed too, though not as grievously as his nickel gaffe.

      My point is that as with most entertainers you should enjoy Aaron’s work, even buy some books; I don’t doubt for a minute that he’s a lot smarter than me and most, and has some pretty interesting points of view. But don’t take his advice to the bank.

    I’ve read the book, my special snow flake has this problem. Working on BSME and Applied Discrete Mathematics concurrent degrees, 4.0 in both. Can’t find a boy friend who isn’t scared of her. The fact that she can gut and clean a deer is just a bonus. Keeping her occupied while little was a challenge but much fun as she understood subtle sarcasm well before her years. Oh yeah she’s a constitutional conservative and I wouldn’t count ruling the world out of her future accomplishments.

      Not All young (early 20’s) are common sense dead millennials.
      My young one is doing tops in Bio-Chem. Actually works between semesters for a world wide corp. in a more advanced job than her studies.
      And is a dead on shot.

      I dunno TG, sounds pretty farfetched and stupid…which is to say totally believable for anything to do with F&F.

      Wonder if Judicial Watch is also digging into the FBI instructing all LE to refuse FOI requests regarding the Orlando attack?

      I’d say it all sounds like a bunch of wackadoo conspiracy theory, except it ain’t theory anymore if it’s true.

    Lat to the party but regarding yesterday’s strip on novel uses of aircraft, remember that ealry on Obama had Air Force 1 buzz Manhattan with a load of Democratic donors for a photo-op. The panic and suffering that induced was real.

    I’m sure we’ve all read about the F-16 Thunderbird that flamed out after an airshow at the AF Academy graduation where our wonderful president was speaking. Here’s a little depth from my AF brother who flew the F-16 and a few others earlier in his life. While he was the family fighter jock, the rest of us flew birds from C-123 to B52, pretty much world wide.

    The Thunderbirds fly “clean” aircraft, i.e. no external tanks and use a lot of afterburner in their performances. They burn a lot of fuel in a fairly short time. The solo guys, #5 and #6, burn more than the team, #1 through #4. Quote follows:

    “Little bit more on the Thunderbirds crash after the initial reports (that of course turned out to be mainly BS)…

    Subject: T-Birds Crash Fiasco

    The muddy waters are getting deeper and more obscure.

    Here are the latest twists to the story:

    – T-Bird performances are choreographed to the second
    – Team took off on time, but was sent to a holding pattern as POTUS was running behind schedule
    – POTUS then spoke for approximately 20′ longer than planned
    – Team performed flyby and performance
    – Following performance, team was directed to hold again (POTUS security detail would not allow them to land due to POTUS movement at Colorado Springs airport…this is SOP)
    – A Secret Service ground coordinator is usually with ATC during events like this, and SS has the hammer on all movement within an “x” mile radius of POTUS
    – #6 (the one who crashed) flamed out en route to the runway in defiance of POTUS security coordinator
    – Remaining 5 jets declared emergency and landed after ignoring the SS who was directing them to continue to hold
    – Another of the jets possibly flamed out on very short final or just after touchdown

    – Rumor was #1 was fired, but he either was not fired or was quickly reinstated
    – Rumor was the remainder of the show season was cancelled… either bad rumor or that guidance was rescinded
    – #6 is cleared to fly as soon as he is mentally and physically ready to do so.
    – #6 is back to flying status in record time…
    – Lt Col Hammond is still Thunderbird #1 and giving interviews, and the remaining show season is set to resume

    – Stand by for potentially one of the greatest Accident Investigation Board “whitewashes” in Air Force history, aka, they will find some way to explain the accident without blaming either the flight lead or #6 (because they are still flying shows) or the politicians involved (whose ignorance is beyond blame).
    Causes one to wonder what would have happened if all six had flamed out, or if the SS had tried to shoot them down as they tried to land?

      Earlier this year I saw some photos showing one of the Thunderbird aircraft performing with a belly tank.

    Javier’s birth was influenced by a MacApple? No wonder he is the way he is. A genius, yet a loner. I’ve always said that Apple doesn’t interface and “play well” with others.

    Norm– Thanks for the heads-up, but do you think a little thing like multiple fuel-starvation crashes mean anything to Teh iWon??

      So, I read your link. Again crediting the Armalite Rifle as the tool used when, if I remember correctly, no ARs were actually used.

        Bill G

        Later reports say it was a Sig Sauer MCX, and from what I’ve read it’s not based on Gene Stoner’s Armalite mechanism.
        But it looks similar and that’s close enough for the genii of the LSM, many of whom are still insisting AR means Assault Rifle and refuse to acknowledge the difference between semi-auto and selective fire.

      • June 30, 2016 at 9:56 am

        Shit I have got to stop being so obscure in my wordplay jokes. See, it’s an assault “raffle”, making fun of lefty hoplophobe terminology and encouraging positive firearm awareness with giveaway promotions, especially benefiting a demographic group not known for 2A defense or even self defense. But now maybe they will be; there’s apparently a surge in gay gunnies these days.

        So, it doesn’t make a shit what flavor of EBR was involved either at the club or in the business promo; so he donates a $600 gun and gets what, $10,000 worth of advertising? And makes a good pro-gun anti-anti point in the process? And actually benefits a victim group? Win-win-win.

        Man, that’s a long way to go for a simple joke…”assault raffle”, get it?

      • June 30, 2016 at 10:43 am

        I got the pun, I did laugh actually. But these anti gunners are pissing me off to nearly beyond humor. You are definitely right about the win-win-win of the PR value though.

      • June 30, 2016 at 1:15 pm

        Sorry cm, didn’t mean to imply your being slow on uptake, more critiquing myself in that what seems sharp in my mind sometimes comes out obtuse in my writing. It’s an issue for me.

        Yeah, humor regarding scum who would take my rights so as to take my freedom is certainly of the dark variety, but anytime somebody like this shop owner finds a way to tweak ’em it gives me the grins and gotchas.

    Well it’s like this. Things were properly aligned in 2009.
    After that, pure luck of the draw.

    Just make sure he plays in the mud sometimes and goes digging for worms for fishing. Looks up and around more than down.

      Was there a strange mist that night? Any unexplained periods of unconsiousness? Does the child have unusually thick, white-blonde hair and piecing blue eyes? And does he seem to exert an unusual influence over his parents and others nearby? If so, welcome to THE DD OF THE DAMNED!

      • June 30, 2016 at 10:34 pm

        Strange Mist? More like a warm viscous liquid propelled at light speed making contact with a small ovoid causing said ovoid to be suspended, then taking root in a nourishing enclosure for 10 moons or so.

      • June 30, 2016 at 11:29 pm

        Mist, liquid, howling at the moon(s) and other glorious orbs…

        Definitely sounds like a pagan ritual to elevate consciousness and encourage higher thinking…

  • June 30, 2016 at 8:18 am

    I doubt Javier’s intellect was influenced by an Apple product, or everything he programmed would go in a straight line with no stearability, and do very little, very well. More likely he was influenced by the magnetic fields of an IBM box running Linux.

    • June 30, 2016 at 8:58 am

      Or perhaps, a System76 Linux box!

      • June 30, 2016 at 10:05 am

        there was a box and a hard drive involved.

        there was nothing Lame about it. there was a stream and there are no public reports on media involved.

        knowing what other people call you delusional for knowing can get old. The kid will need interface protocol, guidelines and instructions as well as practice. many societies and cultures do destroy that which they cannot understand or control, or that is different. be wary and learn, child.

        More exactly, being a 3rd gen E-body performance model, it’s a ‘Cuda.

    Thanks for feedback on Clarey. As mentioned, I am a fan of his, but needed some more disinterested third party perspective
