Overnight Open Thread

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

The Making of Jive Talk From Airplane!

The 10 Most Mysterious FBI Cases

And then there's D.B. Cooper who hijacked a plane in 1971 and parachuted out of it with $200,000 in ransom. Some of the money was found in 1980 on the banks of the Columbia river, but otherwise there have been no further leads in the crime since then. And recently the FBI used some DNA from D.B. Cooper's tie to rule out certain longtime suspects.

If he's alive, this guy has got to be some sex offenders' list.
