Midday Overnight Open Thread [Rajiv Vindaloo]

So I suggested to Ace that we do a Midday Overnight Open Thread this week, on account of everyone's going to be wandering around in a haze of tryptophan and Valu-Rite and "playing the TSA home game" on themselves instead of making news for the next ten days, and we need something to keep the Morons occupied. He responded, "A Midday Overnight Thread sounds so stupid we can't not have it on the site. Makes no sense, so it's perfect."

Sounds like the Ace Seal of Approval© to me!


'Cause they're drunken seals...panda...thingies...

Anyway, it's midnight in Bangladesh, so just play along, okay?

More crud after the jump. It's my first post, be gentle.


If I end up posting something Genghis or Maetenloch has put up in the past, consider it a sign of my good taste in links instead of a massive screwup. Kthx. I'm sure most of it will be different anyway, because I'm abnormal.


Above: Different.

Reason #612 to Defund Public Broadcasting: Sesame Street Sucks

Today's Sesame Street? Dumbed-down blather about self-esteem and a solid half-hour of CGI Elmo. '70s Sesame Street? Intentional post-psychedelic screwing with kids' minds. Unless they go back to making stuff like this that warps children for life, they don't deserve our cash. Not that they'd deserve it even then, but at least I could be content with the knowledge my children will have the same bone-chilling Muppet nightmares I did. H ... H ... H ... H ...

Flyover America Comments on the Kent State Shootings

So this guy dug up some choice letters to the editor of LIFE Magazine right after the, uhm, episode. I have the feeling his reaction to them is somewhat different than the average Moron's will be, but hey, you be the judge. You're a Moron, after all.


Get off my lawn! Damn hippies.

The Cleveland Steamer: Yours For Just $10

This is what happens when you give Brooklyn hipsters seed money: Plush toys based on unpleasant sexual antics. At least, I've been told that's what the terms mean. I wouldn't know, you know.

He's a cute little bugger, though.


Not a worm.

Nothing Says "Fun" Like "East German Consumer Product Design!"

Because Communists needed to feel trendy, too. A lot of this stuff is actually pretty cool. Whether it functioned or not, I have no idea.


But wait! It's also a Geiger counter!

Options for Field Anesthesia in the Horse

Just in case you might ever need it. You've already got plenty of ketamine and diazepam on hand anyway.

Fava Bean Lovers' Link of the Day

The latest research on what causes psychopaths to be their lovable little selves, committing mass murders across 17 states, voting for Barney Frank, stuff like that. It seems they're really good at saying the right things without thinking about it the same way the rest of us do. (Maybe I should have put the Barney Frank joke here.)

Dr Ermer and Dr Kiehl suspected the reason might be that, despite psychopaths’ ability to give the appropriate answer when confronted with a moral problem, they are not arriving at this answer by normal psychological processes. In particular, the two researchers thought that psychopaths might not possess the instinctive grasp of social contracts—the rules that govern obligations—that other people have.

Yeah, that's Congress, all right.
