Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)

Welcome to the ONT all morons and moronettes. If you do not yet have your official AoSHQ moniker, just ask and one will be assigned to you. Tonight let's welcome our newest morons - booger, GirlyGrip, Flounder, and lice_wigs.

Item #1: Lions Are Dangerous
As any professional hunter will tell you, lions can be deadly even to an armed hunting group. It's often hard to get a shot until they charge, and when they do charge, they tend to run fast and low. That's why many hunters shell out the big bucks for a double rifle - the immediate second shot can sometimes save your life.

Also do not taunt happy-fun lion.

Update: Here's a comment from the video's youtube page. Apparently this lion was being specifically hunted because it was dangerous nuisance.

kmwllmsn (1 year ago)
i know someone who supposedly knows the hunter in this video and he said something about this particular lion being very dangerous and a man killer or something, and the guy going into the hunt having to promise to stand and shoot if it charged. The lion and hunters are both very brave, and i have to give credit to the hunters for standing their ground, im not condoning lion-hunting but having one charge you would be a good way to find out a lot about yourself

Item #2: Where Exactly Is The Friend Zone?
I might quibble with the size of the zones, but on the whole I think this chart shows exactly where friendsville is and sadly why for some morons it's merely an aspiration.

Anglo-Saxon News: Huge 7th Century Gold Hoard Discovered
A treasure hunter with a metal detector discovered a buried Anglo-Saxon trove with over 1500 items in Staffordshire in central England. The workmanship is exquisite and is believed to be state of the art for that time in history. Since most of the finds are sword pommel caps and other fittings, they're probably loot from a battle. Both the finder and the land owner are expected to become millionaires once the items are sold. Personally when I bury weapons or ill-gotten ACORN cash, I also include a live hobo to make the death-curse more effective.

Late Update: Here's an artist's rendering of famed moronette, wherestherum, based on internet photos, image processing, and pure imaginative guesswork.
