Overnight Open Thread

Time To Started Spreading The Word Morons!

So the latest Wikio blog rankings are out and AoSHQ comes in at a respectable #51 in the top political blogs.

Well respectable that is until you look at exactly who's in the first 50: Firedoglake, Crooks and Liars, Kevin Drum, and Balloon Juice. And then there's Riehl World View, Doug Ross, and McMaynerberry News. McMaynerberry!!

Come on people we can do better than this. And God knows Ace deserves better. The site just hit 100 millions hits and got linked twice this week by National Review's Morning Jolt. And yet we're still stuck out here at #51 along with Ahmet, Jugdish, Sydney, and Clayton. It's time to have some integrity people!

Now some of this is our fault since to date our marketing efforts have consisted mostly of blog posts and the occasional note scrawled in bathroom stalls. But we need your help too. So start passing the word about the blog.

Link it. Mention it in unrelated conversations. Write it on dollar bills you find. Link it. Leave it up on library computers. Link it some more. And evangelize the AoSHQ Way to anyone you meet. This Christmas Ace doesn't just need your money - he also needs you out selling the Moron Message among the masses.

The AoSHQ horde is on the march. And I say it's time we put some fear of the moron into #50 Doug Ross and #49 Dan Riehl.

Oh and be sure and leave your death cards so we get full credit.


Hope & Change Part XXVI: More Muslims Defend Suicide Bombing Today Than in 2008
So all that bowing, speechifying, and references to his middle name had pretty much no effect.'s almost as if the reasons they hate us and want to kill us have nothing to do with George Bush being president. But how can that be?!? Because everyone all the smart people know that foreigners have no free will - they just wander around until they're stimulated by American foreign policy to do good or bad things.


RIP John Lennon - It Was Thirty Years Ago Today
Yeah his political ideas were childish and idiotic, but he did write a lot of good songs and probably would have written even more if his life hadn't been cut short:

As celebrity deaths go, this one was hard to take and even harder to understand. Like most people throughout the seventies, I kept expecting the Beatles to get back together eventually. It seemed to come close from time to time such as when the UN Secretary General personally asked them to reunite for a charity concert...or when SNL's Lorne Michaels jokingly offered a pittance that, according to legend, John and Paul almost took him up on.

How Bad Is The Recession?
So bad that even Andrew Sullivan is hawking "Daily Dish" t-shirts and mugs modestly priced starting from $50. Apparently that special Sullivan bandwidth is quite expensive.

Look Out: Al-Qaeda’s Newest Weapon Is Poison Perfume
Eau de terror:

Saudi Arabia’s Okaz newspaper reports that al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) recently tried to kill government officials and religious clerics by sending agarwood-scented and poison-dosed perfume to their homes and offices. The Saudi Interior Ministry claims it got wind of the plot after the arrest of 149 al-Qaeda suspects in the country comprising 19 separate cells. The suspects allegedly planned to rob banks in order to pay for the perfume plot and others.

Classic TV Station Signoffs
It's hard to believe today but up until the 90's you could actually stay up 'later than TV'. You knew it was getting late when you heard the national anthem or "High Flight" playing on TV followed by static (or a test pattern if you were lucky). Now we have 900 channels of re-runs and infomercials - not that I'm complaining.

SeaWorld, Tommy Lee, and Cow Vaginas
So apparently Tommy Lee has gotten his knickers in a bunch over rumors that SeaWorld uses cow vaginas to jack off their killer whales. SeaWorld denies this but is somewhat vague on the exact technique they use to obtain orca sperm. And I'm still confused why PETA is up in arms over using bovine coochies for this. It's pretty much this or sausage, right?


My Year in Waxing School
One woman's account of what it's like on the other side of the latex gloves:

I put on some vinyl gloves and worked down and across her pelvis, twirling clumps of hair and trimming them free. You have to trim any hair longer than eyebrow-length to prevent "locking" with the wax. You also have to act like this is normal, even though a part of your brain is thinking, "Pubic hair, pubic hair, oh my God, pubic hair."
And unless you're part yeti, does it really take two hours for a waxing?
