Overnight Open Thread

To get the thread started, kick yer shoes off and do the Zoom dance. Everyone else is.

Crocs on a Plane:

Actually, it's kind of a sad, if bizarre story. From ABC News:

"A small airplane crashed in Africa, killing all but one of the passengers after a crocodile smuggled on board escaped and apparently caused a panic."

"The propeller plane was approaching its destination when, according to the sole survivor's account, a crocodile hidden in somebody's carry-on bag escaped and caused a panic. Passengers stampeded to one side of the tiny plane, causing it to be thrown off-balance. "

Doin' my best to cheer you up before you have to slog back to work Monday.

Once again, Maet saves my ass since I didn't even start thinking about this post until about an hour ago. It shows, doesn't it. But I'm all about low quality, lame content and even lamer snark about same. So the following 4 thingies are from Maet, bless his dark, shriveled soul:

1. Conan O'Brien Drives an Explosives-Packed Car Off A Cliff!

2. How to Escape from a Sinking Car:

Video at Lifehacker.

(I might also advise taking some preventative measures so you don't find yourself in this situation, such as not accepting a ride from a member of the Kennedy family. ghengis)

3. 20 Essential Animated Television Series:

From the lovely people at First Thoughts.

4. End Of An Era: Sony Stops Manufacturing Cassette Walkmans:
