Overnight Open Thread

Say hello to my leetle thread...

Hippest horror movie theme song ever, daddy-o:

Champion Mousebot Solves Huge Maze in Seconds:

Well, that sorta’ overstates the case since it didn’t really solve the maze, it wasn’t all that huge and whatever it did took several minutes, but as the Popular Science article states:

”The Micromouse competition is an international event wherein a teeny automated robotic mouse has to survey and then navigate a maze as quickly and adorably as possible.”

Video at the link. You decide.

Everything Old is New Again. A Rematch for the 2012 Dem. Primary?

One can only hope...

Rocket Man does Rocket-Man-Like Rockety Things with his Rocket Jet Pack:

Steve Rossy, fresh from his losing U.S. Senate bid performs some loopety-loops with his jet-pack:

”BERCHER, Switzerland (AP) - Swiss adventurer Yves Rossy jumped from a hot-air balloon Friday and completed two aerial loops using just his custom-made jet-propelled wingsuit - the first time such maneuvers have been performed.”

Sorry, no video yet, just still pics, but his website is promising to get some up soon.

Kitteh vs. Blobbeh:

Poor sound quality, but kitteh gets what's coming to him in the end.

Oh fine. Before I start getting death threats from you "kitteh-lovers" in the thread...

Some Kinkiness for yoo…

I don’t think I realized that this was a political song until I read the comments on it at YouTube. Sounds like a tax protest against the supertax that Great Britain decided to impose in the mid ‘60’s on the so-called wealthy. The 95% or so that caused The Beatles to flee the country and prompted them to write “Taxman,” included on “Revolver.” (Wikilink about the song) But on second listening it sounds like the Kinks were spoofing the Fab Four. Still a good tune though. And if you disagree, you sir/sir-ess are worse than Herr Olberman.
