Overnight Open Thread

(Major SNAFU on my end. I accidentially hit "Publish" when I meant to hit "Draft" a little while ago, so apologies to Waterhouse and Nickless who got comments in before I re-vanished this back to draft status. You weren't seeing things...it wasn't a ghost ONT and your comments are still there)

I'll make it up to you by doing an even worse ONT than usual. Feel better now?

Concerning Camoflage Dip:

AKA: Hydrographing. No pudding on hand? No problem! Try this instead...

The technique doesn't work on all surfaces. Such as cats for example. Trust me on this.

More stupidity below the fold...


Overpopulated Nudist Camp:

I think the same can be said about practically any nudist camp, in that it’s overpopulated with people we really don’t want to see naked. From the Palm Beach Post:

"LOXAHATCHEE GROVES — Sunsport Gardens could be stripped of some home sites."

"The nudist camp, well known in naturist circles nationwide, has been humming along with the same number of tent and trailer pads for at least nine years - well before Loxahatchee Groves incorporated in 2006. The count stands at 133, according to the resort."

"But a 1994 Palm Beach County resolution, which has been governing Sunsport Gardens while the town adopts its own land-use and zoning laws, calls for only 48 trailer sites."

"Moreover, Loxahatchee Groves expects to establish a density of one home per 5 acres once its land-use blueprint is finalized, perhaps by early next year. That could mean only eight home sites for Sunsport Gardens, which sits on 40 acres, said the town's Vice Mayor, Dennis Lipp."

It's SFW. Well, except that flabby, wrinkly nudists are involved, and that's not really safe for anywhere.

New York to Ban Fracking?

Yeah, I don’t think Lt. Starbuck’s gonna’ put up with this fracking feldercarb:

(CNN) -- New York could be the first state in the country to impose a limited ban on a controversial method of drilling for natural gas.This week, the state assembly passed a hydraulic fracturing moratorium bill, which is currently en route to New York Gov. David Paterson's desk. He will have 10 days from then to take action. In the past, Paterson has expressed concern about hydraulic fracturing, which involves cracking thousands of feet beneath the earth's surface to get at valuable natural gas. It is unclear if the governor will sign or veto the legislation.

How f’n fracking works:

For Sale: Aircraft Carrier, Slightly Used:

The Brits have put the HMS Invincible up for sale.

” Britain, under pressure to raise money to cut a record peacetime budget deficit, has put an old aircraft carrier up for sale on a government website, the Ministry of Defence said. The ministry is inviting bids for the HMS Invincible, which saw action in the 1982 Falklands war, on its "disposal services" website, set up to sell surplus military equipment.”

Yes, jolly well and all that. Really I don’t see any reason why we couldn’t pool our resources and make a bid on this fine piece of warship. After all, isn’t it about time that the ONT asserts itself (itselves?) as a world power? I say frackin yes! Hoist up the black flag! The AoS Moron is ready to sail…

Platypussehs: The Swiss Army Knife of the Animal World?:

From the vid: “Combines traits of birds, reptiles, mammals, ninjas, vegetables and minerals.” Or something like that. About the size of a beaver, the name is taken from the Greek “platys,” which means “flat” and “pous,” which means “foot.” (Quit snickering)

Tonight's '80s New Wave Flashback:

As a kid I wanted to paint my bedroom black with stripes like in the 2nd part of the video but mom wasn't havin' any of that bs.
