Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)

Hello, hello all M&Ms. Welcome to the weekend so pull up a stool and let's get started. I'll be traveling all this week so expect the ONTs to be 21% suckier.

The Awesomeness of Dolph Lungren
Okay okay he's a dirty Swedish scandi but apart from that he's actually a pretty awesome guy. Here's a couple of Dolph facts you probably didn't know: By training he's a chemical engineer and he has a masters degree in ChemEng from the University of Sydney. The only reason he came to the US is because he won a Fulbright scholarship to study at MIT.

However shortly thereafter he met and started dating Grace Jones who convinced him to take up acting instead. So that was then end of his academic career. Since then he's played countless bad guys, a few good ones and even made a cheesy workout video. Oh and he also won the European full-contact karate championships in 1980 and 1981.

Nowadays he's chosen to live in the US along with his wife and kids and does directing along with the occasional appearance on Red Eye. So all in all I'm willing to overlook his scandi past.

Duct Tape: Is there anything it can't fix?
So when a bear chews up your airplane, the well-prepared Alaskan pilots grabs his rolls of duct tape and gets to work. And apparently it worked well enough to let the plane make it back home. Thanks to Dang Straights.
