Overnight Open Thread

Do Political Mixed Marriages Work?

Here Neo-neocon reflects on a recent New York Times article on liberal-conservative marriages and notes that pretty much the only ones that work out are the liberal wife-conservative husbands ones. And even then only if the husband is respectful of his wife's beliefs as well as fairly immune to her liberal condescension. Luckily many wives view their husbands as barely functional Neanderthals so it's often not a huge stretch for guys.

“It’s his character, his emotions, his appreciation of me that are important. And he is coherent in his own way. He has legitimate reasons for all the repellent ideas he holds.”

And based on the marriages of friends and my parent's friends I'd say the lefty wife-righty husband is pretty much the only mixed combination that can succeed. And even then it's very hard to maintain a level of mutual respect and civility and keep contempt, the marriage killer, from creeping in.

How Cebu Airlines in the Philippines Does Their Safety Demonstration
With a some dancing to Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. Of course other than maybe on Southwest you'd never see this on any major American airlines whose flight attendants mostly seem to be burned-out middle aged women who hate you.

Europe On Terror Alert
Based on info from a captured German terrorist in Pakistan Europe is bracing for imminent Mumbai-style gun attacks. Targets include the Eiffel Tower, major hotels, and Britain's Prince Harry among others. The US State Department even has gone so far to issue a travel alert for Americans.


Well maybe another apology tour or victory mosque would turn their angry frowns into smiles. Luckily Charles Bolden Director of Muslim Outreach and NASA is heading off to Saudi Arabia to do some outreachin'. Maybe that will help.

Toys From Your Youth That Would Be Illegal Today
Well if the lawyers hadn't already driven them off the market. And is it true that water-air rockets are really gone? Damn I loved those things. Mostly because you could do real damage with'em with minimal flames and effort.

The Top 10 Things Women Want You To Notice

Noticing any major change in her hair, whether it’s the style, cut or color, is essential to remaining in her good books. A simple, “Your hair looks great!” will suffice it.
Well the catch is you have to notice within the first couple of days and be able to describe whatever it was that she was doing hair-wise before. Which is always where I lose substantial points.
