Overnight Open Thread

Happy Bunday! You know what awaits you below the fold….

Space Shuttle from hangar to liftoff:

This may have been posted before (or something similar was) but it’s still pretty incredible to watch. The part where the rail crane lifts the shuttle vertically through the shaft, on its way to be mated with the boosters/external fuel tank is kinda’ freaky. It looks so tiny compared with the vehicle assembly building. There may or may not be audio with the video.

Thanks to Pocono Joe

Movie review:

Over at RedLetterMedia (home of the 70 minute The Phantom Menace review) it appears they've decided to branch out beyond science fiction and now have a review of Baby's Day Out. Which begs the question: Why?!?

Eh, maybe you'll like it, but then you've always had questionable judgement. Otherwise, would you even be here? I'm thinking they should maybe stick with the adage "go with what you know."

Now comes the bunnehs:

Here's an adorable bunneh:

More adorable/pissed off and bloodthirsty bunnehs:
