Hopefully no repeats

Let’s see what we have in the funneh folder for today.



Now that’s planning.

These next ones were going around work.

Do you blame them?

And finally…

Y’all have a good day.

  1. misfire? I didn’t have one scheduled

  2. thanks for picking up after mj and pj, roamy!

  3. aos sure loads faster

  4. I’m enjoying my coffee this morning, knowing this is the calm before the storm at work.

  5. No problem, Jay, I have been keeping up the funneh folder all along. I did check scheduled poats and saw BBF for tomorrow but didn’t check drafts.

  6. I’m enjoying that too roamy. wonder where that waiter is with our refills…

  7. wakey wakey

  8. We’re cutting down trees on Earth Day.

  9. When the lockdown madness started, it never in my worst nightmares occurred to me that it would go this long. Just checked my IDs. I’ll have to renew my DL this December, likely by appointment since that witch Benson can’t run anything but fraudulent ‘elections’ and her mouth, and they’ll probably want me to mask up to #staysafe, even then. My PIV card for work expires in October, and renewing that requires entering a federal building. That may mark the end of my employment as a contractor.

  10. I can fix the DL by “moving” to IN with very little effort/expense, if I have to.

  11. PIV card. I was supposed to return it somehow but they never even bothered contacting me. The POC still sends me emails inviting me to meetings and what not.

    I’d wager the ‘consulting’ company is still charging the VA for me.

  12. Likely.

    I’m also going to ignore your poat and stay here.

  13. i took it down

  14. Just like LeBron did

  15. I miss Trump.

  16. I had a thought. The reason no one can replace Rush is that none of the current crop of hosts get the criticality of “entertainment first” for a broadcast like that. Rush got that, and he was funny as heck. He knew the power of humor to keep listeners engaged, break down defenses and start conversations with people who disagreed with him, and to take the stuffing out of things that needed it.

    The worst part of the daily Rush Seance is that they are sticking to his solid commentary and skipping over all the funny bits and sly humor that made it entertaining.

    Mark Steyn is the only one with the humor to do the show, but he doesn’t have the interest or endurance to make it work every day of every week.

  17. I miss Trump. Best president since Coolidge.

  18. Read the email version of MJ’s post and look forward to it rising another day. I really enjoy creative conjugated filthy put down nicknames.

    Although not filthy, “Cheese Bag” is delightful

  19. Interesting vidya about who’s profiting from lumber prices.

  20. Cheese bag is one of my new favs.

  21. John Stewart also tried the entertainment angle, and was successful with The Daily Show. The difference is that Rush was entertaining while also not lying about his position. When he was sarcastic and satirical, you could tell. Stewart used it to cover his ass when he out and out lied about something, then got called on it.

    Clown nose on, clown nose off.

  22. Bongino had an excellent point, not once in the trial did they bring up race.

    Only politicians, race-baiters and BLM nuts brought race into it.

    Race had nothing to do with George Floyd’s death.

  23. over/under on when Cheese Bag makes an appearance on the comment box, or tagline at H2?

  24. I’m hoping our local talk station goes for Bongino. He manages to work in some humor and ridicule of the left. I’ve stopped listening to Rush, the guest hosts are just “OK”. And although an awful lot of his commentary about the left is evergreen it is starting to show its age. IMO, a proper tribute to Rush would be some form of Greatest Hits with added context provided day another host to set the scene. If they charged a nominal fee with proceeds in excess of maintenance of the site donated to his charities it could work.

  25. OFFS it’s Earth Day.

  26. If George Floyd were white, no one would even know his name.

    If I hadn’t been told he was black, I wouldn’t have known.

  27. provided day = provided by

  28. I’m praying that the wood in the garage is enough to build the sheep shelter. I settled on a 6′ isosceles A-frame so it will be less likely to blow over in high wind and I’m pretty sure a 2’x4′ door will fit neatly and be big enough even when they get closer to market weight.

  29. Beautiful tribute to a long time spouse. Local newspaper guy here in Iowa, always enjoyed his columns.

    Reflecting on our 30th and probably last wedding anniversary: Life has been really good, and still is, even with death so near

  30. check local sawmills, leon, if you need some extra.

  31. Rush always maintained that he was an entertainer first. People sneer at the notion of political theater, but theater is important to human psychology. It helps create a common identity and a shared culture. It is often embedded and intertwined with the other rituals of a society.

    The point is that both Reagan and Trump also understood this, though perhaps not in those words. They understood that, to use Breitbart’s phrase, “Politics is downstream of culture” and that they had to win over people’s attention before they could win their support. Unfortunately, the GOP establishment, with its corporatist lackeys, doesn’t understand this. They stupidly believe that if you just get up there and talk about “our ideas” in that droning, smarmy, politician accent and cadence, that somehow the masses will rush to the polls. Or at least the base will, because where else are they going to go?

  32. Reagan-Rush-Breitbart-Trump. Pretty good company, and they got good results.

    Now we get to listen to the Bush family whine.

  33. mare, calm down and burn a tire.

  34. Anyone good at drawing game theory trees?

  35. Theater is all well and good, often necessary. But if the audience thinks the joke’s on them, it won’t go over well.

  36. MJ what’s the problem?

  37. Side point, when I turned the key in the New BroTimMobile this morning, it was 38 degrees Fahrakkincoldasfuck out. In late April in Alabama.

  38. Did some trig, door will be 3’4″ if I make the frame a 6′ isosceles. That’s short, even for me, but I shouldn’t need to go in there much.

    Game theory, sequence diagram, or decision tree, MJ?

  39. leon can probably do it in python

  40. We’re dancing with the freeze point here, Tim. Hard frost this morning.

    Just found this site the other day. I think they might (by the name) be Electric Universe fans, but the full stack of headlines is about the current cold snap and the current solar minimum, along with the likelihood that it continues into a GSM:

    https://electroverse.net/record-april-cold-sweeps-the-united-states/

  41. I assume he’s talking about these

    https://policonomics.com/lp-game-theory1-extensive-form/

  42. hard frost here 2 nights ago. Probably going to play hell with the cherry and apple crops.

  43. Electric Universe sounds like something Car in’s older daughter would go to with her loser boyfriend.

  44. Good column link Jay. The in-home hospice part hit close to home, less than a year from losing my mom. They had a good thing going, still do for a bit longer I suppose.

  45. what is it with “smart” people, that they go in with the left so much? Is it ego, and condescending attitudes towards others? Overdeveloped sense of nurturing? Seems the higher you get in education levels, the more left leaning it is.

  46. That looks pretty simple, at least for 2-way branching. We did something similar when we were doing games in AI.

  47. MJ what’s the problem?
    ———–
    Yes, your link is what I’m doing. I think i have it figured out but I’d like a second set of eyes on it before I send it to the profs.

    It’ll probably be a day or two before I’m finished.

  48. I’m happy to look at it.

  49. The commies took the universities, Jay, and intellectual humility isn’t taught anymore.

  50. Cool!

    I’ll send it to you guys when I’m done.

  51. We did something similar when we were doing games in AI.

    Ford Car: Would you like to play a game?

  52. It’s not even the cold. It’s that when it’s cooler than normal and the inevitable warm, humid air makes its way up from the Gulf, all hell breaks loose. Past six weeks have been nasty enough as it is.

  53. Not so much. I built a checker-playing bot that did red-black decision tree prediction and scoring.

    It wasn’t very good (I think my scoring criteria needed work) but it played legal checkers and it was the only one that kept to the 2 min/move time limit the instructor set. I had a shortcut to stop thinking about a decision tree if there was only one legal move, and a timer thread that picked a move at random if we were crunching too long. Pretty sure I was the only one to add those.

  54. what is it with “smart” people, that they go in with the left so much? Is it ego, and condescending attitudes towards others? Overdeveloped sense of nurturing? Seems the higher you get in education levels, the more left leaning it is.

    1. Higher education is a controlled environment which attracts people who don’t function very well on the outside. In my experience they tend to be leftwing because they want big daddy government to take care of them, or they don’t function well among normies, and society is really built to protect and encourage normal behavior.

    2. Academia functions on theory. They teach theoretical models of the world. Too long immersed in that, and you start to lose track of the fact that those models are only approximations. They may be useful, but they will always lack critical variables.

    3. Most of them aren’t that much smarter than the rest of us. They are the 115-120 IQ crowd who are just smart enough to grind their way through a Ph.D. program. I suspect that many of them fall for these ideas because their egos translate “believing in an esoteric and convoluted idea” as “you’re obviously much smarter than the masses.”

    4. To tie in to 3, those esoteric ideas are an indicator of social position. They’re a class marker which says, “I’m one of you, and not one of those townies or country bumpkins.”

  55. It wasn’t very good (I think my scoring criteria needed work) but it played legal checkers and it was the only one that kept to the 2 min/move time limit the instructor set. I had a shortcut to stop thinking about a decision tree if there was only one legal move, and a timer thread that picked a move at random if we were crunching too long. Pretty sure I was the only one to add those.

    Should have added a function that, if it was losing, would print out “WHAT’S THAT BEHIND YOU?!” and then rearranged the board.

  56. College kids are so fucking stupid. We should take away their right to vote.

  57. i’m guessing we haven’t heard what started the knife fight in Columbus because it’s going to make it all look even … dumber.

  58. A Michael Jackson song, obviously.

  59. “Paula Bryant, identified as Ma’Khia Bryant’s mother, told WBNS-TV, a local CBS affiliate, “I’m very upset, I’m hurt. I want answers.”

    She also said her daughter “had a motherly nature about her. She promoted peace. That is something that I want to always be remembered.”

  60. So she had at least one abortion already, or so I’d bet.

  61. She promoted peace in the same way that the Romans brought about Pax Romana: the destruction of her enemies.

  62. “We sick of being peaceful,” someone told officers gathered at the scene, adding, “That peaceful stuff is for the birds. We did that last summer. We ain’t being peaceful no more.”

    They were “peaceful” last summer?

  63. I bet her friends call her Ma’Mazda.

  64. I’ll send it to you guys when I’m done.

    It’s old.

  65. This shooting will disappear quickly because it doesn’t serve the cause. Looking into any details or motives will be labelled “rubbing salt in the wounds of a grieving family”.

    Care to buy a BLM Air Freshener to hang from your rear view?

  66. well, all of you can buy one. I can’t drive on the internet with one, for obvious reasons.

  67. Agree with Alex re college.

    The profs that from the real world have a very different outlook and style from those who have spent their lives in the academic bubble.

  68. We had a couple meet and get married at our very small crossfit Gym.

    Unfortunately, things just got really ugly last week when apparently the husband actually started “snapchatting” a newer member of our gym.

    It got pretty ugly.

  69. I have come up with a brilliant idea, but i put it up on facedouche. SInce I don’t want to be repetitive, you gotta go there to see.

  70. So what is “Shudder”? Is this another streaming thing so more movies, etc, I can’t watch?

    Honestly, there is now about … 5-8 years of streaming shows, movies, etc, that I’m completely ignorant of.

  71. https://www.thecollegefix.com/ive-lived-in-minneapolis-my-entire-life-im-leaving-friday-i-no-longer-recognize-my-hometown/

    It’s happening. They will move to red states, and vote for blue policies.

  72. https://www.shudder.com/about

    Yeah, it says “plans starting at $4.75 a month”. I could have sworn it was a free channel when I saw it on my old Roku box.

  73. Shudder is a horror-centric streaming service. They sponsor some horror gamers on yooboob.

  74. you gotta go there to see
    ——
    No

  75. Unfortunately, things just got really ugly last week when apparently the husband actually started “snapchatting” a newer member of our gym.

    It got pretty ugly.

    Ooops.

  76. Just adopted, can you tell?

  77. you gotta go there to see

    it’s pretty cool. But yeah, it’s old.

  78. It’s a fabulous idea. WE NEED YOU OSU!

  79. The best thing is that it really is putting the issue at ground zero. Universities basically started this shit.

  80. What if we don’t do facedouche, Carin?

  81. Then you are cursed to never receive the joy of her wisdom.

    Also, you miss out on newfie pictures.

  82. The peaceful girl who tried to stab someone had an idiot for a mother, she barely had a chance. No talk of a father which is the biggest problem in black neighborhoods.

  83. I would rather watch Lena Dunham strut around in a bikini than go on FaceDick.

  84. but if you go on facedick you get both!

  85. For mare and no one else:

    Now is the time for bravery on the part of our Universities. The defund/abolish the police movement has been growing in the last few years, and after the death of Ma’Khia Bryant the student body of Ohio State has been protesting for just that. The universities (and elite class) have been (mis)educating these brave pioneers to come to these exact conclusions. To what end, but make it so?
    So, I have a great idea. Ohio State University should be a brave leader and be The First. Abolish the police. Listening to activist rhetoric, apparently THEY can “police” communities themselves in a fair and more equitable way. 13 y/o shooting at cars in the middle of the night? Drug addict passing fake bills while ODing? Knife fight between a few girls? They are ON it.
    Be Brave Ohio State University! And know that the entire country will be grateful if you take this brave step to demonstrate, in real time, how this is going to work.
    We’re going to need a few volunteers to be witnesses on the ground. I would like to put forth a few names. LeBron James. Ibram X. Kendi. Joy Behar. Marisa Tomei. I’m sure there are plenty others!

  86. Wayne State, too. Rancida Tlaib can go sit in a lawn chair and keep the peace.

  87. Fortunately the police chief of detroit knows what’s going on. He ain’t playing.

  88. I like that guy. He should run for mayor.

  89. 1. Defund police
    2. Organize paintball / outdoor adventure clubs outside town
    3. Wait for city to go to hell
    4. Outfit clubs with proper weaponry
    5. Sweep in and conquer city
    6. Burn the city instead of keeping it, it wasn’t worth much to begin with
    7. Start a better city somewhere else

  90. Seriously, God should smite Minneapolis for terminal stupidity, then St. Paul ” ’cause you with him”.

  91. Seriously, I call St. Paul “Snow Francisco” for a reason, folks

  92. I’m stealing that.

  93. Lead singer has a suspiciously diminished gag reflex

  94. Seriously, defund the police. We have an example and it’s segregation followed by huge murder rates.

    Chicago.

  95. The problem with defunding the police? The stupid assholes who want no police move to places that still have police. Because, reasons. Then we’re stuck with more stupid assholes.

  96. Pretty sure the end of this is that white people aren’t allowed into cities that their ancestors built.

    Or are we still pretending that the goal here isn’t conquest?

  97. So we build new ones while the barbarians, incapable of maintaining what they have, watch their prize fall to rubble.

  98. I’m okay with that if we wall ourselves “in” first. You know, into that tiny, empty space outside the city where no sane person would go since there’s no good take-out there.

  99. They hate western culture but will lie cheat and steal to become a member of it.

    It’s superior to any other cultures.

  100. In my less-sober moments I’ve wondered what it would take to establish a colony somewhere else in the world. I bet you could find 500k to 1 million Americans who’d be willing to uproot their whole lives to establish a new city somewhere in the third world. Cut a deal with the Afghan government to let us take over a sparsely populated mountain region, or somewhere on the coast of Africa. In ten years we’d probably be rich and prosperous.

  101. COLONIALISM!!!!

    It’s been tried. Rhodesia was lynched after the barbarians saw how nice it was and wanted it for themselves.

  102. Their autonomous zones are a preview of their idiotic utopias.

    They become thieving rape zones. Effing idiots.

  103. Phobos Station with a ground platform at Musk City, Olympus is our only hope.

  104. Israel too. It was a wasteland until the Jews brought (made) the water work for them.

    Colonialism made every single country it touched better.

  105. I colonized your mom and she was thankful for the touch

  106. Antarctica would be awesome and way easier than Mars, but they’ll shoot your ass dead if you wander too far from tourist areas.

  107. Antarctica would be awesome and way easier than Mars, but they’ll shoot your ass dead if you wander too far from tourist areas.

    =========

    What are they hiding????

  108. Megatron.

  109. I’ve thought about starting a colony too but then you’d get some asshole like wiser in charge of the music for a weekend and we’d be subjected to cover songs or some such bullshit.

    And then there’d be a revolution themed party for the ‘good’ music people which would be misconstrued as an actual revolution and then a war would start. And because we’d all have guns there’d be a shootin’ war leaving 90+% of the population dead because we actually know how to shoot.

    Just kidding. We’d never invite wiser.

  110. Kidding. Mostly they don’t want anyone establishing… a colony. It would ruin the “pristine” inhospitable no-man’s land.

  111. They’re hiding the ancient city with strange geometries and the giant penguins.

  112. The Fortress of Solitude

  113. Penguin Buggery

  114. Narwhal Tits

  115. Walrus Scrotum

  116. Beluga Blowies

  117. Somebody stop me …

  118. of course leon wants to live in antarctica

    Most people don’t even want to go to Michigan, much less permafrost

  119. Mare, that’s the thing. They don’t want to be part of Western Culture, they want to draw off its prosperity. They want no part of what makes that prosperity possible. They win, everybody goes back to subsistence. Some think they can be part of a handful holding on to some wealth while everyone else is dirt, but they clearly don’t understand that once they’re the only target, the jig is up.

  120. Most people don’t even want to go to Michigan, much less permafrost

    Read this and understand: NO LIZARDS.

  121. Just Old Ones and shapeshifting aliens.

  122. And, more importantly, NO LIZARDS:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reptoid

  123. at least I know what to get you for secret satan

  124. Snowshoes?

  125. reptoid just wants to have the human’s impressive package?

  126. Jimbro, that story was funny.

    Idiots got to idiot.

  127. Reptoids are jealous of our herculean mammalian penis.

  128. That’s going to be my path to permaculture farming.

  129. I want to get somewhere I can have access to regular metalworking classes and facilities and see if I can’t start a side business.

  130. hahahahaha, I’m ordering a planer, picking it up on Sat.

    Got a good deal!

    No, I’m not leaving my job

  131. I found 2 local sawmills

    I don’t agree with all the points, or all the conclusions, but I do think that there is room for a reevaluation by conservatives of how the libertarian philosophy towards corporate capitalism has led us to the problems today. Essentially I think we can argue that the free-market is the best way of producing and distributing goods, but the massive centralization and hyper-efficiency that came with globalization has create a structure so fragile that it cannot be maintained without significant costs to society.

  133. I’ve been wondering if ace is starting a pressure campaign to break republicans away from corporate influence or if he thinks conservatives should actually break from the party.

    I get his theme and it’s definitely sincere but it seems as though the GOP is at least a generation away from becoming led by populists.

    Trump hurdled the long process of change and kicked the GOP in the ass but it generally takes awhile to shift priorities longer term. The left is in the process of going populist and they did it by electing a blood bag. They’re not all the way there yet but will be soon.

    Hmmm. You mean like having incredibly long supply chains without much diversification?

    Napoleon in Russia?

  135. MJ, both parties are collapsing. The Dems aren’t going populist. What we’re seeing is in fact a consolidation of the privileged classes and a struggle for control of the party between the old guard and the young activists.

    Part of the problem on the right is that there’s significant cultural, political, and economic inertia that we’re fighting against. Incumbents have significant influence, and a lot of voters vote for their guy out of habit. It takes big shocks to force a change in a person’s behavior.

  136. Hmmm. You mean like having incredibly long supply chains without much diversification?

    Napoleon in Russia?

    Yup. Or in modern terms, “gee, maybe we shouldn’t make our entire computer and tech industries reliant on one island located close to a global rival and halfway around the world.”

    “Gee, maybe we shouldn’t be so reliant on extracting energy from a single area of the world full of religious nutjobs and dictators.”

    “Gee, maybe we shouldn’t fund our economic expansion through a series of increasingly complex debt arrangements.”

    “Gee, maybe we shouldn’t import tens of millions of cheap laborers with no cultural connection to the population of our country, driving down wages for segments of our population, and creating cultural conflicts.”

  137. But where the American pathology resulted from the irrationalities of market allocation in an emergency, where commodities are distributed not on the basis of need but on who can outbid the rest, the UK debacle was exacerbated by political scientist George Hoare calls a “Deloitte-ification” of the state.

    Various units, divisions, agencies, and even departments of government have increasingly been replaced by a network of consultancies that parasitically absorb state revenues while providing little for their high fees. A minister dials a knob, pulls a lever on the great machine of state, but, like the placebo “close door” buttons on elevators, these knobs and levers are not actually connected to anything. Nothing happens. The placebo state — with its army of revolving door consultant-bureaucrats that move back and forth between civil service and consultant-land — only offers the illusion of control.

    Deloitte-ification also explains the apparent paradox of how the neoliberal state can simultaneously reduce social provision while spending more: the fragmentary, opaque consultancy-public-private-partnership industrial complex ironically requires ever more byzantine bureaucracy at greater expense, even as much of this bureaucracy leaks out into the private sector.

  138. The leftists who would be populists have been subverted into a street army for almost 20 years now. ACORN captured them and then changed names and divided up to better hide.

  139. Wait, those Close Door buttons on elevators don’t work?

  140. “Why climate change is driving some to skip having kids”

    The future belongs to those who show up. Soon the world will be filled with people who heard their parents exclaim “Drill baby, drill”

  141. The future belongs to those who show up. Soon the world will be filled with people who heard their parents exclaim “Drill baby, drill”

    It’ll be full of people whose mom’s exclaimed “Drill, baby, drill!” before they were around to hear it.

  142. The House passed the DC Statehood bill. Onto the Senate.

    It’s unconstitutional as hell, but they’re going to push it through.

  143. “No Standing” to oppose it, if I have to guess.

  144. Virgina/Maryland might have standing, since they gave up the land, but they aren’t gong to push that angle,

  145. The future belongs to those who show up. Soon the world will be filled with people who heard their parents exclaim “Drill baby, drill”
    ——————–
    hahahahahahahahahahaha

  146. I agree, SCOTUS will punt with “no standing.”

    A real political opposition would announce that they won’t recognize any DC delegation to Congress, and Republican states would refuse to recognize DC documents.

  147. Mike Lindell appearing on Jimmy Kimmel?

    https://trendingpolitics.com/watch-mike-lindell-hilariously-accepts-jimmy-kimmels-offer-to-appear-on-his-show/

    Still won’t watch, but I’ll watch the free clip on youtube, or (better yet) rumble.

  148. Pray for Big Pillow.

  149. Oh my god, did OJ “If I did it” Simpson really just tell LeBron Mao to slow his roll?

  150. It was glorious.

  151. My brother encounters OJ all the time on Summerlin golf courses. Aviator games. Red Rock Casino. He likes photobombing other people’s pics with the Juice.

  152. At some point, pink pantsuit dropped her dog. Pretty sure we can get “Dog lives matter” if we can’t get any progs to care about pink pantsuit.

  153. I’d wager the average viewer of American Psycho didn’t start to view Bateman as evil until he killed the dog.

  154. John Wick franchise is built around killing a dog. 🤪

  155. https://is.gd/ZeTnNJ

    (Imgur video with sound)

  156. I’m aware. It’s just, well, Bateman has already killed like 5 people by then in the movie, including some harmless bum just a moment before. If you didn’t feel horror at any death before the dog you’re really not a good person.

  157. I’d wager the average viewer of American Psycho didn’t read the novel and didn’t view Bateman as evil until Lebron James was photographed not reading it too.

  158. I read the book, it’s surprisingly well-written and there’s a lot they couldn’t put in the movie without an X rating at the time.

  159. Since Roe v Wade, human life has lost value. We have become a nation of Planned Parenthood, Eugenic Suicide, and viewing urban areas as self-cleaning ovens. I remember when a Puma killed a jogger in Cali. People raised more money for the cubs than the joggers children.

  160. Stay fresh, cheese bags. My new mantra.

  161. Deez Bags

  162. I just found out Dan sold my golf clubs at a garage sale.

  163. When did you use them last?

  164. Before the garage sale.

  165. So, there was an insurrection in Oklahoma City? BLM insurrectionists were in the OK Capitol during the session.

    Where is the media?

  166. That isn’t the point. 2003. He sold my Ironing board at the same time. He is currently on a roll with my stuff. He spent his day off yesterday, organizing his ammo. Upstairs ammo. Not garage ammo. He is currently getting rid of our camping gear. Tents. Cots. His plan is a Class C RV.

  167. The man is a monster and must be stopped!

  168. Yes! He wants to move to TX.

  169. Cmon widit Danno!!!

  170. nothing wrong with Texas.
    I picked up a new toy in 10mm. Glock 20

  171. whoever turned me on to Red Fang thanks

  172. Do you think we could get a woodworker-type guy to go in halfsies with us on taking our ginormous 130′ tall triple-trunked silver maple down if we let him take all the useful board wood? I need to measure the base of the trunks. This is a huge mufaku tree. I think at least one of the trunks is three feet across. And there’s three of them, conjoined at the ground.

  173. They will try to scare you Lumps saying if it has nails in it it will ruin their blade and you will pay for it. Nails won’t but spikes can. It is a way unscrupulous people will get free lumber. My aunt had a giant black cherry that she gave away because of that scam.

  174. Hmm…apparently there are sawmill fellers that will mill your logs into boards right on your property.

  175. ooooh, good advice, Vmax!

  176. Silver maple is garbage lumber, though. It’s hard and brittle. Firewood is about all it’s good for.

  177. Couple years back I read about a mill in western Montana that was closing down. They had customers, they had workers, they had the facilities to mill the wood. They just couldn’t find enough trees for sale to stay in business.

  178. I’ve somehow become entranced with watching this guy use his lathe to make stunningly beautiful pieces. Makes me want to drop about 15k on a lathe:

  179. Maybe I should buy land and plant a bunch of trees in preparation for the future…

  180. Sobek, I took a couple woodturning classes a few years ago and love them. When I have the space and some free cash a lathe is on my list.

  181. I want Oak. There is a ton of Oak here but everyone says it warps badly because of the temp and humidity. I say but, but, the Constitution (old iron sides) is made of Live Oak and they are pests here. I have a solid lead on free Live Oak logs that won’t fit into the chipper. Even if I get 1 in 10 straight boards from free lumber all I have to pay for is the saw mill, so I will have my oak floors.

    Also I will post a pic tomorrow of our pest palm problem. I looked across the street to a vacant lot with 100 palms growing wild. My best guess is they are all Sable Palms (Our State Tree) Swamp Cabbage anyone? AKA Palm Hearts.

    I will bet you Live Oak isn’t garbage Leon. (not that you said it was) When I was a child we had sugar maples in Ohio.

  182. I saw Sawmill Fellers open for the Stump Jumpers at the state fair…

  183. I did wood shop in high school, and the lathe was my favorite machine. Band saw was second place.

  184. Scroll down to the bottom of this and look at the transition montage between Zuckerberg and Psaki.
    It’s great!

  185. A friend of mines kid has a little saw mill(powered by a 3 cylinder Kubota engine) that has been cutting lotsa wood. He just sold a 2.5″x16″x10′ slab of oak for $600.
    He’s selling lots of wood with his little saw mill. Works 6 days a week and makes lotsa money…

  186. “Detain everyone,” Raoul proclaimed.
