Overnight Open Thread

Good evening all.
Also don't forget about the job bank at the AoSHQ yahoo group.

The 100 Greatest YouTube Hits in 4 Minutes!

From Boxxy to the Star Wars kid to Obama Girl. And you've probably seen quite a few right here on the ONT.


Is the Obama Administration Considering Taking Over 401K Accounts
In the White House's “Annual Report on the Middle Class” one of the proposals under consideration is to convert 401K accounts into GRAs (Guaranteed Retirement Accounts) which would be government-run annuities. Skimming through the report I couldn't find where they would force the conversion but the plan does call for removing current tax benefits from 401K plans. Unlike taxes and fees which basically take part of your future money, this seems like out and out theft.

McCain: Shahzad Shouldn't Get Miranda Warning
This is just one of the many reasons I never liked McCain. He seems to just reach in his ass and pull out a position then preen over it. So his position on any issue tends to be not thought-out, unpredictable, and all too often often goes against the constitution itself as in this case. He's a gut-reactor - not a thinker. And his gut has bad judgment.

So how much can a human lift?
Apparently 457.5 Kg in the deadlift. But even with steroids and more exotic hormones, we may be reaching the limits of muscle mass and the human nervous system.

Why San Francisco has the highest city taxes
Mainly because of this: “More than 1 in 3 of San Francisco’s nearly 27,000 city workers earned $100,000 or more last year – a number that has been growing steadily for the past decade.” And the fact that the city spends $8750 per resident.
