Overnight Open Thread - Mom Day Edition

Happy Mother's Day all.

And it's not too late to send your mother a customized video naming her The 2010 Rising Mother of the year! It's pretty cool how they're able to work her name into all the videos and even create a virtual mom tattoo.

And here's a little video showing how love for mom can kinda overcome filial hate. (thanks to DPR VIII)


Biggest Cheating Day For Moms: The Monday After Mother's Day
According to ashleymadison.com their second busiest day for women signing up is the day after Mother's Day (the day after Valentines Day is the first). So treat her right on Sunday, or Sancho will on Monday.

Christopher Hitchens and Margaret Thatcher the Dominatrix
She liked to punish naughty, naughty reporters. Like Christopher.

Opium Poppies - in your back yard?
Well it turns out that the poppies people grow in gardens (Papaver somniferum) are exactly the same type as those used to produce opium. Afghan drug lords and US pharmaceutical companies just happen to use varieties that produce a slightly higher yield. But the ones you buy from Home Depot will work just fine as well. And apparently tea made from dried poppy heads is strong enough that several people have managed to OD on it.

Surprisingly it's perfectly legal to grow opium poppies just as long as they're for purely decorative uses. So when you're planting your apocalypse garden, you might want to decorate it with some poppies just in case.

Jerry Brown Use Investigations For His Campaign
California's current Attorney General, Jerry Brown, has become very fond of using his office's power to investigate to pursue his personal political aims.

In the month of April alone, Brown has launched investigations to embarrass Sarah Palin, aggressively promote union membership, clear ACORN of criminal activities, play catch-up on the Wall Street scandal by trumping up charges against Wall Street giant Moody’s, go after an oil company politically active in defeating California’s new green house gas emissions law, and grab headlines on issues ranging from home foreclosures to former child star Corey Haim’s death.

The scary part is that Jerry Brown stands a decent chance of becoming CA governor again despite his well-earned 'Governor Moonbeam' record from the 70's.

6 True Stories About Disneyland They Don't Want You WTR to Know
Well there's the communal underwear and occasional lice breakout, the boobie monitoring and sweeping out human remains gigs. Plus there was the Yippie invasion in 1970 that resulted in Disneyland closing early for the first time ever.

Remember when I said I’d remake you last? I lied.
For some reason Fox has decided to remake the 1985 movie Commando. Only without Arnold and his one-liners. So really what's the point of doing it?

20th Century Fox is going Commando again, setting David Ayer to write and direct a reboot of the 1985 film. Ayer is the former Navy soldier [sic] who wrote Training Day and moved into directing with the dark dramas Harsh Times and Street Kings. He will put his own real-world spin on this original premise: a retired elite special forces operative sees his daughter kidnapped and is told she’ll die unless he gets on a plane and kills the rival of a nasty exiled dictator. In the original, Schwarzenegger jumped off the plane before takeoff, and killed everyone involved in the kidnap plot, in a real beefcake turn that followed Terminator. Ayer’s protagonist will be less brawny, but more skilled in covert tactics and weaponry.

Why Are Men's Sperm Counts Falling? It's Mom's Fault
