Overnight Open Thread

Sorry for the semi-paltry ONT tonight - I've been traveling all day and most of this was done on my iphone. Which is possible but very, very tedious.

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

The 80's Bully Montage
Because the 80's had the best bullies ever. McFly!! Nerds!!!

President Thin-Skinned Lectures Republican Senators
And things did not go well:

"The more he talked, the more he got upset," Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) said. "He needs to take a valium before he comes in and talks to Republicans and just calm down, and don’t take anything so seriously. If you disagree with someone, it doesn't mean you’re attacking their motives — and he takes it that way and tends then to lecture and then gets upset."
Okay we knew he was thin-skinned when it came to any criticism, but this whole episode is revealing especially given that he used to be a Senator and was dealing with normally civil and respectful Senators. Even Mr. Reach-Across-The-Aisle McCain was unhappy with Obama's lecturing.

And notice how not only did Obama brook no criticism, but he like most on the left can't even credit those who disagree with him with honorable motives. I guess we really did end up with a leftist community organizer as president.

Life at a Nevada Brothel
Here's a photo look at an average day at The Bunny Ranch, a legal brothel in NV. More mundane than you'd expect from the brothel pron genre, but better than you'd expect in real life. Supposedly the girls make almost $1000 a day. And get free medical exams.


The Human Centipede
Warning: this is disturbing. I'm pretty sure this has been covered at some point on the blog, but just in case I'm wrong, here's the trailer:

16 Lego Torture Devices
Is there anything you can't do with Legos? But the parts are so specialized these days. When I was a kid, you were lucky to be able to make a generic rectangular robot. Now you can get special iron maiden pieces.
