Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)

Good evening morons and moronettes. Welcome to the post-genghis era. I know I have some pretty big clown shoes to fill, but I'll do my best to carry on the ONT torch in all its shameful, moronic glory. As I'm sure we all will, so let's all tip a 40 to his memory and make him proud.

Item #1: The People of Walmart
This has been making the rounds of the internet so I thought I'd share it with you guys. Unfortunately the main site, peopleofwalmart.com, has been killed by the traffic so here is the next best place I could find. Also check out this site for the goats-in-Walmart pics.

Walmart seems to have a bad name among a lot of people but it's been very, very good to me. There have been times when I've been on the road for extended periods and I've found that it's just cheaper to buy new socks and underwear there than bother washing them. Besides where else could you wear your Captain America suit and not feel out of place.

Item #2: Abandoned Russian Nuclear Lighthouse
Okay you know I have a thing for abandoned places. Well this one is pretty spectacular - it's a lighthouse built in the Sakhalin islands north of Japan. At some point the Russians got tired of bringing in diesel fuel and put in a nuclear power plant with their usual attention to safety and longevity. Now it's abandoned and marked radioactive. And unlike in our lawsuit-driven culture, when the Russian mark something as radioactive or dangerous they're not kidding.

Also I'm pretty sure I fought Combine troops here in Half Life2: Lost Coast.


Tonight's post brought to you by a kitteh since that's the way genghis would have wanted it:
