Overnight Open Thread - A Return to Sanity

Welcome all to the post-Thanksgiving shame spiral. Don't worry - the fumigators are coming tomorrow morning to get rid of all the bedbugs and clear out the openblogger uh, scent aroma.

Welcome To The United States Of Obesity

Mississippi is still the fattest state in the country. And after stuffing ourselves over the recent holiday food binge I doubt the current standings have changed much.

Interesting that Colorado and Utah are the thinnest states. I would suspect that maybe elevation had something to do with it but then how do you explain New Mexico and Wyoming? Maybe it's just cooking styles and activity levels.

Number of the Week: 492 Days From Default to Foreclosure
Currently the average borrower in foreclosure hasn't made a mortgage payment in 492 days - nearly a year and a half. Assuming they're still living in the houses that's a lot of free rent.

Top Ten Acts Dissed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
And there's some big name bands here. KISS sold a lot of records, are universally recognized, and are currently enjoying a resurgence of sorts...and yet no love from the Hall.

Classic Frat Dudes
I'm pretty sure I went to school with some of these guys. We usually tried to keep most of the joke pictures off the chapter portraits but some always managed to slip in which meant we had to listen to complaints from the older alumni whenever they came to visit. And unhappy alumni = fewer donations = less beer.

Freaks, Geeks, and Upperclassmen
A scientific study confirms every suspicion you ever had about high-school dating. Although it is a surprise that senior girls are even worse off for intra-school romance than freshman boys.
