Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)

Well genghis is still out in the field so I'll put up the ONT. Otherwise Gabe will do it and we all know what that means - use of correct grammar, homework assignments, and required readings on 19th century Law of the Sea. So just be thankful I got here first.

Here are a few items for your enjoyment:

Item #1: Interesting and Eerie Abandoned Places Around the World
'Urban exploring' is where people explore abandoned buildings and facilities and document what they find. Mostly it's taking picture and leaving everything as is. I've had an interest in this for a couple years and it turns out that genghis does as well. When I was in Japan a few months ago I even dragged the GF to Yashima where there is an abandoned resort on top of a mountain. If there's interest maybe I'll post the pictures sometime.

Item #2: How To Make The Perfect French Fries
These look pretty damn good, but they forgot the one step that might push the fries over into perfection: In step 3 be sure and wrap each fry in bacon before dipping it into the oil.
