April 18, 2010

Overnight Open Thread

Hey hey it's Sunday. So let's make the weekend count for something.

The Wizard of Dogz
The doggeh version of the movie. And yes always be on the look out for evil flying kittehs.


Tipping Point: Most Union Members Now Work For The Government
For the first time in American history more union members work for the government than in the private sector. Overall 12.3% of US workers are in a union but 37% of government workers are unionized compared to just 7.2% in private industry. So more and more expect union workers to become synonymous with government bureaucrats. And unlike the private sector there's no natural brake on government union demands since bankruptcy is not a threat. Well not until the entire financial system collapse like in Greece.

The 10 Stupidest Music Videos of All Time
Okay this list is by no means comprehensive since there are at least a hundred other videos that are worse. And Billy Squier's "Rock Me Tonight" definitely belongs on the list - this video singlehandedly destroyed his career and rightfully so. And the Bowie-Jagger version of "Dancing in the Streets" brings out the worst of their individual styles. And is somewhat disturbing when you know their history together.

Who Oprah's Daddy?
Well this 84 year old man claims he is and wants a paternity test. According to Kitty Kelly even Oprah doesn't know since her family refuses to tell her. Also Oprah's so estranged from her mother that she won't even give her her phone number. And she and John Tesh were an item back in the 70's. And then there's the lesbian stuff.

The Genetic Disorder That Removes All Racial Bias And Social Fear
Williams Syndrome also removes all fear of strangers which may explain why it's not very common. Interestingly this implies that racial bias and fear of outsiders is probably an in-born trait.

How Trustworthy is Your Beard?
Okay this is completely unscientific yet it pretty closely matches my experiences.
