Got the poll asking who thinks we shouldn't force teaching Arabic numerals in school.  57% agree!   S M H !!


Probably the same hoaxters that got people to beliieve the OK sign was something evil.



The OK symbol is a perfect example of finding the right balance between reporting while trying not to amplify an obvious 4chan troll. Launched on 4chan as “Operation O-KKK,” the OK symbol’s goal was simple: spread it enough as an anti-Semitic gesture, both online and offline, and hope the media picked up on the campaign. A document was posted on 4chan, as reported by The Boston Globe, instructing members to effectively troll the mainstream public until it became a thing people couldn’t ignore.

“[W]e must flood Twitter and other social media websites . . . claiming that the OK hand sign is a symbol of white supremacy,” the document reads. “Leftists have dug so deep down into their lunacy. We must force [them] to dig more, until the rest of society ain’t going anywhere near that [expletive].”

The issue, according to Segal, is that it’s impossible to prove intent. Reporting it as a blatant anti-Semitic symbol plays into the 4chan trolls’ game, but ignoring that some self-identified white nationalists are using the gesture is equally harmful. The answer is still unclear, but it helps explain why niche memes and radicalization attempts are on the front pages of The New York Times, The Washington Post, or The Boston Globe.

So I am a fan of Smoke, but have yet to visit this new location. Should I just hoof it into Tulsa if I want Smoke, or do you not care for either. Seriously asking.

My wife and daughter have been to MAD Eats next door, which I believe is run by the same family. They thought it was certainly worth a return trip. More of a relaxed, diner atmosphere though. More fun.

Can't go wrong with the location on Cherry St., we have never had a bad experience there and try to eat there when we return to Tulsa for visits.  I have wondered if a concept like Smoke, which is so dependent on such a creative chef (Erik Reynolds), could translate that success into multiple locations.

On April 8, (Rick) Hubbard was arrested at Nienhuis Park on complaints of obstruction and felony pointing of a firearm. Police said in a release a witness had told police Hubbard was pointing a weapon, which Hubbard flatly denies, and that he ignored officers’ commands.

Hubbard and his attorney, Jay Ramey, are in the midst of a legal battle with both the Tulsa County District Attorney’s office and Broken Arrow police about a key piece of evidence from the arrest: Hubbard’s phone. It contains video Hubbard recorded of his interaction with Broken Arrow officers that responded and shot at pepper balls at him during his arrest.

However, Ramey said the police department wants a blanket download of all data on Hubbard’s phone, something he said is unreasonable given the scope of the case.

“We’re at an impasse right now about getting the video out of the phone,” Ramey said. “The police are telling me they have to download the entire phone because of some sort of protocols. I’m just saying we’re not agreeing to that. ... If you’re gonna download the entire phone, including all the emails he’s written to his wife about whatever, they don’t need that.

“We have no problem with the DA or the police wanting the video. We just don’t want them to have the entire contents of the phone.”

Warrantless seizures are legal only if an officer has probable cause to believe the property holds contraband or evidence of a crime (child pornography and counterfeiting, for example) and exigent circumstances demand it, or some other recognized exception to the warrant requirement is present. United States v. Place (Supreme Court 1983). Otherwise, such seizures violate the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments.

Well, on the warrantless seizures -  only until the Trump Minions on the SC get to change it all again...

This is kind of an aside, but how would you express a binary number with Roman numerals?


Lots of ones and .....

Gee, I guess besides reducing the Greek numeral set of 26 down to 10, and fixing the more obvious problems with Roman numerals,  we also owe the Arab's a huge debt of gratitude for that tiny little hole they put in the number line!  0. 

Or ever try to multiply Roman numerals?   We were taught one method in 5th grade summer school (NOT in Oklahoma!) and it was painful....here is a tutorial to help with that...

The primary disadvantage is very notable though: they pay no city taxes on their property.

They could skate on a lot of things beside taxes:

By the way, does anyone else hate the incredibly misleading, basically false advertising by Osage Casino?

Quote from their advertising:

https://www.google.com/search?q=downtown+tulsa%27s+casino&rlz=1C1GCEU_enUS819US821&oq=downtown+tulsa%27s+casino&aqs=chrome..69i57.7871j0j1&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

How is that not a complete lie? It is 4 miles outside of downtown in a rather remote/empty area. It is in no way a "Downtown Casino Hotel". People from far away will book thinking it is downtown. People seeing the signs that popped up everywhere thought that meant there was a new hotel downtown. Even after the new build, it is still one of the worst trashiest casinos around (Especially once the stank sets in permanently again). I tell people to especially avoid that one like the plague.

I remember the first time I saw that billboard and thought, pancakes? I've had this conversation many times. If people from out of town fall for it, I can see a big PR mess on their hands.
