Overnight Open Thread – (genghis)

I’m tired of real news. So are you. Because I said you are, that’s why. You can haz real nooz tomorrow. Tonight you get more from the bookmark dustbin (who knows how many, if any, have been posted before).

Item #1:If you’ve never been to How Stuff Works.com it’s a pretty helpful site. Mainly because it explains how stuff works. Such as aircraft carriers. You never know, the information could come in handy some time. For example, let’s say you’re out at a bar some night with the entire crew of the U.S.S. Lincoln and it’s your turn to be designated driver. I’ll bet you’ll be glad you read this article then, won’t you? The clutch can be a real bitch to work on those things. While there you can also learn how an FA-18 works. Trust me, you will need to know this at some point. Or at least where the ejection seat handle is.

Item #2: But if you’re out with the entire crew of the Lincoln and it’s not your turn to be designated driver, Oddee.com has some suggestions about where you might buy them all a round rather than at the local dive with $3.00 PBR pitchers you usually take them to. Presenting The 10 Strangest Bars. I’m sure there are probably stranger ones out there which you’re more than welcome to tell us about in the thread (and no, the bar from Star Wars is not on the list). By the way, considering all the armed forces do for you, seems like you could buy ‘em rounds at a slightly classier joint than you usually do. Plus at a place that has more than a single pool table. Given the crew size of a carrier, it gets a little confusing when there’s 5,000 quarters stacked on the table.

Item #3:Finally (and mercifully), looking for a new I-Phone app? Me either, but apparently there’s one for every occasion, including if you’re looking to commit adultery. Hmmm. Maybe that stance should be rethought. The article has links to sites to still your cheating heart, so let us all know how it works out. And since we live in an age where everything is done at hyperspeed, you may be able to satisfy your wanderlust while this thread is still active. If so, we’d all be interested in reading your review when finished. After, not during and please wash your hands before commenting.

Thanks to Phil the News Junkie for this and many more links that are gonna’ eventually get me booted off this blog.

Tonight’s sponsor below the fold.


Tonight’s ONT is sponsored by the Naked Mole Rat. It’s almost a given that most ONT commenters feel a certain kinship to this non-furry little creature which “has a highly unusual set of physical traits that enables it to thrive in a harsh, underground environment, including a lack of pain sensation in its skin and a very low metabolism.” What, you probably thought I was going to say something about its appearance and the fact that it's naked? Some things are simply too obvious to even mention.

”Uhhh…First! Bacon? I’m so happy that genghis is back tonight on the ONT. At least he didn’t let that Maetenloch guy do another one. Much less letting it fall to Malor *shudder*. Where’s Palin Steele!?! Can’t wait to kick his ass here in the comments…”
