Overnight open thread – Concerning Big Toys – (genghis)

Sorry…political-free zone tonight. It’s Friday after all. Now get into the kitchen and start whipping up margaritas (make mine a triple). And would it kill you to make me some nachos fer’ chrissakes?

Item #1: Popular Mechanics has a 40th anniversary retrospective about the Apollo 11 moonshot which includes tons of interactish stuff like videos and audio for you to look at and/or listen to. After you make the nachos of course.

Item #2: With the 65th anniversary of D-Day on Saturday, we might as well get into a martial mood with Cracked’s list of 7 WTF Military Weapons You Won’t Believe They Actually Built. I’d believe it of course, but the rest of you are heretics and unbelievers. And where are my damn nachos anyway?

Item #3: Since we’re dreaming of things we’ll never have (like my nachos), might as well dream big. Leave it to Gizmodo to let us know how pathetic our earning power really is by flaunting a Saudi Prince’s $485 million A380 Flying Palace. Some highlights:

”What's 239 feet long, flies at 647mph, and has three floors that include a grand staircase, four giant full suites, boardroom with hologram projector, a full spa, concert hall, car garage, and a space-age lift that drops onto the runway?”

I guess we’re supposed to be impressed or something. Where’s the swimming pool? Harem quarters? What about the bowling alley and on-board ski slope? Petting zoo? I bet the galley has nachos though. Served on the nubile bellies of naked wenches.

Which all reminds me…probably time to stop by the gas station soon and fill up the truck. And maybe pick up a bag of Tostitos.
