I have never seen a Snap Train, have you? ๐Ÿค”
davknight comments on Feb 21, 2020:
Jack Built wooden toys had a short-lived popularity from the late 1950's into the early 1960's. The train sets were the most popular. They got put out of business, probably by the greater use of plastics in toymaking.

davknight comments on Feb 18, 2020:
Yeah, that mimeograph ink had a funny smell. During Nixon's Operation Intercept, pot became scarce. So, many teens took to sniffing weird stuff to 'get high'. I can remember them sniffing type cleaner, carburetor cleaner, and other nasty stuff. I'll bet there were at least a few who tried mimeograph ink!
The Creepy Female Teacher Epidemic - YouTube
davknight comments on Feb 18, 2020:
I can remember a female art teacher back in high school, who had the hots for teenage boys. But that was back in the 'seventies, and no one would have dreamed of ratting on her. Instead, it flattered our teenage boy egos. Back then, we had two rules: Never rat on your friends. And always keep your mouth shut!

Most are from privileged backgrounds, where they know nothing of firearms, and are accustomed to the "nice" police, and the "nice" military protecting them. Most do not come from the ranks of the working class, or the poor, who know that poor and working people need every gun they can get their hands on, to protect themselves from the "not nice" Rich people, police, and military. Their Libertine fantasies are the product of their bourgeois, and petit-bourgeois class backgrounds.

How Did the Last Neanderthals Live? - BBC
davknight comments on Feb 8, 2020:
They probably lived pretty good, until Humans came along. One of the more curious things about Neanderthal sites is that tethering stakes for (prehistoric) horses have been found. But we can only speculate why? Did they stake them out for the purpose of eating them? Did they keep them as pets? Did they ride them bareback? We don't know.

Nuclear science reveals sobering truth about faked Scotch whisky [thebulletin.org]
davknight comments on Feb 3, 2020:
Old West saloon keepers were true whiskey 'alchemists', putting turpentine, gunpowder, kerosene, and ground red pepper into theirs. They also saved the 'leavings' from the bottles, by dumping them back into whiskey barrels. The distillers also did that, and had their salesmen collect the empties from saloons, so they could dump the last drops into freshly distilled batches. One such salesman was collecting the empties from Judge Roy Bean's old Langtry, Texas saloon, and was astounded that the bottles were bone-dry. The Judge told him: "The boys around here get so thirsty, they sop the insides out with their tongues!".

Greatest country in the history of the world ?
davknight comments on Jan 28, 2020:
The "Greatest Country" nonsense originated as U.S. Cold War propaganda. It was used to combat the growing interest in socialism as an alternative to colonialism, in Third World countries. The gist of it was that Capitalism was the only economic system that could improve the lives of Third World peoples: "Be like us, and you too, can have automobiles, refrigerators, and television sets!". As a collateral effect, it was designed to make American workers more accepting of mindless consumerism, and develop in them a more positive attitude towards wage-slavery: "Aren't you piss-ants grateful you work for us?"
So.

The witch doctor told him no, but that what was important, was whether the patient BELIEVED it had done him some good. (True story).

Glorification of the police and military goes back to the post-Vietnam War period, when the Pentagon decided something had to be done to improve the military's image in the public mind. So, they began offering grants to film producers, who were making films that glorified the US military. Likewise, the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration began encouraging TV producers to create more television shows, glorifying the police.
