Overnight Open Thread

Welcome to the beginning of the beginning of the weekend.

Werewolf Prevention Training

Forget teh zombies - we need to start worrying about the werewolves! And this video will show you how to both keep them at bay and keep keep them as pets. Of course it's always good to have some silver bullets on hand in case there's one of those minor lycanthrope-human misunderstandings. They also have silver arrowheads for you longbow/crossbow aficionados.


More ObamaCare Goodness: Introducing the National Medical Database
Yet another buried nugget in the ObamaCare law turns out to be the creation of a national electronic medical database:

...it requires doctors to record patients' treatments in an electronic medical database and monitors doctors' decisions. Dr. David Blumenthal, the Obama administration's National Coordinator of Health Information Technology, explained in the New England Journal of Medicine last April that "embedded clinical decision support"—his euphemism for computers telling doctors what to do—will manage the quality of doctors' decisions.
So not only will the government decide what kind of care you can have, it will also potentially know every treatment you ever get. But I'm sure that the government agencies involved in this will only use the very best security to protect the database, and would never let an unauthorized person check on someone's medical history. Because that would be wrong of course.

The Awesomest Bouncer Ever
Watch how he pwns two guys without raising a finger. Of course it helps that he's Michael Kuhr, a 5 time kickboxing world champion. So the lesson here is to be nice, until it's time to not be nice. And to have a cellphone.

The Launch of a Soyuz
This was the launch of a Russian resupply spacecraft, Progress M-05M, to the ISS. It was unmanned and carried fresh food and supplies to the station as well as some special care packages for the crew including confectioneries, books, movies and some new porn. Okay I may have added the last one, but here's a trivia question for the morons: When did the first known porn go into space and who brought it?

The Smiling Chihuahua
I'm guessing somebody just woke up from a nap.

Celebrities and Their Moms
Some are positively MILFy while others are cautionary tales. And some have all their parents' features delicately balanced on a razor's edge of handsomeness.

100 Years Ago the Trendy New Craze Was...Tattoos
In London. And unlike now the popular tattoos were family coat of arms, the King, the union jack, and kittehs.
