Overnight Open Thread

Last call for the weekend. So let's make it count. And don't forget that the ONT is an open thread so nothing is off-topic.

And hey the HQ has made the news. Yeah they're snarking on us but at least we're finally No. 1 at something. And it's nice to finally get some respect for our hobo beatdowns. Thanks to several commenters that pointed this article out.

Naked Mole Rat Cam!

Yeah the naked mole rat has been longtime sponsor of the ONT and now you can watch them in their natural state. Which seems to be mostly sleeping and stumbling around in the dark which also might explain their popularity among the morons.

And they're some pretty damn odd creatures. According to Wikipedia they live up to 28 years, never get cancer, and are the only known mammals to have a queen-based social structure with worker castes.
[note: the rats sometimes wander around so you may have to wait for them to return]

An ABBA reunion?
Maybe. At least the guys aren't rejecting it outright. Of course Agnetha Fältskog (the blonde one) is currently a recluse on a remote Swedish island so she might be a harder sell. Oh and here's a little modern day ABBA factoid: one in four English households now owns a copy of Mamma Mia!.

Scared Little Doggie Gets a Home
Just an hour before she was going to be put to sleep.

I had no idea there were so many Cap'n Crunch variations.


Iceland Closes All Stripclubs!?!
Due to feminist and not moral reasons. Sadly 57% of iceback men support the closing. You know who else doesn't have strip clubs? Saudi Arabia that's who.
