Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)

Good evening all morons and moronettes. Genghis is taking a much needed vacation so you are once again spared from teh kittehmageddon. Hopefully after the intervention his vacation the threat will have passed and we'll be back to that good old snarky love that we're used to.

So here are a few items that you may enjoy:

Item #1: 7 Signs That You Might Be An Adult
[minor warning: the site seemed to have added some NQSFW pics since I linked it]
All of these are pretty good signs that you are no longer a kid, but here are some specific ones that I've discovered along the way:

1. You no longer have a burning desire for sea monkeys or anything else you can buy from a comic book.
2. You own your own vacuum cleaner. And use it.
3. You don't have a subscription to Playboy even though you promised yourself you'd get one as soon as you got old enough.
4. If something falls into the toilet, you're the one that has to get it out. Also you're the one responsible for both breaking and fixing the toilet.
5. Having insurance on something actually does give you peace of mind.
6. You've got a $20 bill in your pocket yet you still don't buy 10lbs of M&Ms and Now-and-Laters.
7. You think about things before you do them. (OK this might be specific to me since my father begged me to do this through most of my childhood. I mean who could possibly have foreseen that building a vinegar-baking soda volcano in the living room could lead to permanent carpet damage)
8. You don't buy a brick of Black Cats and M-80s every time you get the chance.
9. Getting a good night's sleep before a big event actually seems like prudent, useful advice.
10. You have unfettered access to a motorized vehicle and can go anywhere anytime you want, yet you choose to stay home and watch TV.

Item #2: Blooper Video from the Moon
This is Jack Schmitt during Apollo 17. Now Schmitt is a pretty accomplished guy - he received a Ph.D. in Geology from Harvard and was later a Republican Senator from New Mexico - but even accomplished guys can have a bad day. Of course I've I had similar accidents before but in my defense I'm still getting used to this planet's gravitational field plus cosmic rays and shit were affecting my middle ear.


Tonight's post brought to you by things your mother wouldn't like:
