Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)

Good evening all. Hope you had a good weekend. Tomorrow's a school day so don't stay up too late!

Item #1: Mr. T Has A Message For You
Still as relevant today as it was back in 1991. It ain't easy dealin' with fools!

Item #2: Seven Celebrities Who Have Brains
Some of these I knew, but most were a surprise for me. It's always nice to see child stars who didn't end up in porn and drugs. And I have to give props to Danica McKellar here. As a student I took two classes with her advisor, Lincoln Chayes, and have a passing knowledge of percolation theory - trust me this ain't no trivial math. Babes got a brain.
