Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)

Good evening morons! Welcome to your official Ewok-approved nightly playpen. Everything is non-toxic for your safety but please do not chew on the power cables or assault the staff.

Looking for a local Oktoberfest? Use this map to find one. Just remember that you're only a Greyhound ride and underwear change away from any point in the country.

Item #1: Everest From Above
Here are some awesome photos from back in 1991 when British photographer Leo Dickinson flew a balloon over Mt. Everest. These were taken at an altitude of 36,000 feet with a temperature of -56C. It took him 10 years to plan the trip, he took a lot of precautions but still nearly died in the attempt.


Item #2: A Blast From The Past - Top Morons From 3 Years Ago
So here's the list of the top moron commenters from Sep. 2006. Many of them are still here perhaps even on this very thread, quite a few have started their own moron blogs, and the rest have returned to the formless void from whence morons come.
