lmao! he spent his time last night sending me impotent threats private messages on Facebook. oof.

 

What is an "Aladdin reject"?  Is being cut from a Broadway musical the worst fate he can think of?

I disagree, that colonialism was a bad thing. Just get it right, as we did, when to "kick the habit," "keep the good and throw out the other," etc. Other places, it was a stabilizing, modernizing thing. In some cases it would appear, I demand ANYONE to refute me, that certain places are better off now. Now, this, of course, leads to racism claims but, whatever. As RCH would say, "show the data?" Certain places have done fine, others haven't. Odd. Weird. Spurious. Outliers? Who knows? What other factors were there? Besides "colonialism" and the etc blame. I don't know. I'm not an expert but there seems to be odd correlations, not, necessarily causation, that certain 'areas' can't ever seem to get their act together (that is a scientific term.) haha.

Oh I don't think colonialism was an unmitigated evil, either, particularly when you consider what we replaced it with, i. e. propping up whatever native dictator happened to arise as long as he wasn't a total commie.  My point was the strategic value of claiming the moral high ground and its effectiveness at driving American foreign policy, in this case knocking France and especially Britain down to size.

Russia understands what you might call our weaponization of morality only too well -- I think they blame Gorbachev's concessions to it for their collapse -- which is why they devote a lot of effort to convince everyone, especially us, that we're not really the good guys.  It works, too; you have a large portion of the right wing, put off by neocon adventurism, now talking like reedy Chomsky-toting pinheads, forgetting that isolationism has a long history in American politics particularly among Republicans, and that there has always been a huge gulf between articulating a moral position to make sure the white hat stays firmly on our head and actually intervening.

Hence why I find the idea that the American president should remain silent on Hong Kong laughable and the possibility that he might simply be working a trade deal vaguely repugnant.  Yes, let's kneecap our own greatest foreign policy instrument, worth god knows how many aircraft carriers, because we don't like warmongering Hillary, no matter that she is now a greasy smear in history's rearview mirror.

Haha you guys.  I am sure RT is echoing a similar theme right now since that kind of moral bullying is exactly what they hate.

The US has always exerted a disproportionate moral force in other countries' affairs, going back practically to the Monroe Doctrine with even deeper colonial roots in Winthrop's City on a Hill.  In the 20th century Wilson used that kind of nagging it to set up the League of Nations and, after WWII, we hectored Europe into dismantling colonialism, for which we get very little credit these days.

It isn't fair but it's an essential part of our foreign policy because it works.  It's TR's big stick.  American exceptionalism, fuck yeah!

I found a cake for you guys. ;)





As long as you're making it!  They are a royal pain in the ass, the dough is so sticky -- it's basically like a French almond macaron and even with the molds it's hard to get it perfect.  That one looks like it's been augmented by piped buttercream to make it taller, which is cheating.

i can't believe 600 people have watched me sit on my ass and interact with chat questions & comments.

livin the dream. the 🔥LIT CITY🔥 dream.

lmao

All those hate-watching cat ladies really rack up the views!

Honestly I think we're getting to the point where actual, engaging, take-all-comers conversation about nothing in particular but everything in general is so rare people like to watch to remind themselves how it's done.

I'm glad you chose to post a pic of a lady in that pose... Otherwise I might question if you are posting some of your "girl/men" in swimwear.  :o

"Tuck game on point."

It wouldn't be a bellgab swimsuit thread if the Muslims, Mexicans and Trannies didn't all make an appearance by the end of page 2.

Sometimes too true. Giving credit where credit is due, at least the Mexicans often swim with their shirt on. Not sure why or the reasoning behind the decision but it is a thing.

I have noticed that, too, down there.  From dance costumes I always thought those Latin types were inclined toward barechested bravado but, no.  I don't think it's an excess of modesty, either -- in the heat of the day they will pull up their shirts and poke their little bellies out to cool off which is a sensible measure, if hardly becoming.

I suspect it is because if they leave the shirt on the riverbank someone might pinch it.

Submit to the proper authorities. They update the dictionaries everyso often. 

Denecking sounds like something Henry VIII or Muslims did/do, or used during the Reign of Terror. This below looks like serial killer outfit from some Hollywood horror movie. Imagine being on a beach and seeing this come up from the water. What a weird culture. 



You bring up an excellent point:  it would similarly be more precise to speak of de-heading than of beheading since,  as seen in examples such as "beclown" and "besmirch", the be- prefix usually manifests that to which it is attached, rather than removes.

I assume that is some sort of sun protection?  You see some pretty extreme measures among the Japanese tourists in Hawaii -- giant visors, ill-fitting smocks, sort of harem pants, parasols -- probably due to the same impulse that obliges them to walk around with those silly masks.

What is that supposed to be? It looks like Falkie spilt strawberries on her decloutage

I believe this to be a superior construction to the original "décolletage", presuming the "clout" to be derived from the same root as "cloth" (cf. breechclout, Clootie Dumpling, etc.).  The "collet" in décolletage comes from the Latin collum, or neck (cf. collar), and it is more precise to speak of a de-cloth-ing (the -age Frenchified suffix denoting their version of a gerund) than denecking.

Hawaiian Butter Mochi



I am working on this recipe because I love butter mochi so much.  Mochi is Japanese stuff traditionally made via a laborious process from pounded, cooked rice -- it can be sweet or savory -- but in this country we have



thank God, which is just add water (or other liquid).  Its gooey consistency makes this like no other cake.

1 lb. rice flour
2 1/2 cups sugar (!) or 1/4 tsp pure sucralose powder (highly recommended)
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt (sounds like a lot but trust me -- that's a lot of rice)
ground mace (if you can find the whole blades) and cardamom to taste -- a lot

6 eggs, beaten
1 stick salted butter, melted
1 can coconut milk
2 cups whole milk
1 tsp rum extract
1 tsp vanilla

mix and pour all in a 9x13 and top with a handful of unsweetened flaked coconut (not the baking kind which is so processed and infused with PG it's gross) mixed with powdered sugar to taste, maybe 2:1, and bake for an hour at 350.  It will puff up like a Dutch baby but settles back down.

BEWARE this is what they grow those big Hawaiian boys on!

Speaking of volcanic mudflows and Indonesia, I object strongly to importing the Indonesian word "lahar" to describe them.  Consulting a reverse dictionary shows that the word simply means "lava", as you might guess from the similarity -- it is probably itself a borrowing from the West -- and likely describes anything that comes out of a volcano.

We already have "pyroclastic flow" (fire-broken flow) to describe the high-energy product of the initial blast and "mudflow" to describe the later snow- and glacier-melt-driven floods.  Inaccurately importing a foreign word for its whiff of exoticism does nothing to clarify matters and usually must be explained to a lay audience anyway, which defeats the entire purpose of the thing -- it is pure academic puffery.
