Overnight Open Thread

Happy Thursday all.

So How Safe Is Your Neighborhood?

Well you can find out by going to crimereports.com and putting in your address. It's a little bit disturbing to see how many crime reports get filed in even good, quiet neighborhoods. Luckily most tend to be minor property theft and damage. And so far no one seems to be tracking butchered hobos. So that's good.

And there seem to be a lot more sex offenders than you'd expect - in fact there's one living less than a quarter mile from the White House. I wish they'd include their crimes as well so you could get an idea of how dangerous they are - a lot of cities also put johns caught soliciting a prostitute on the sex offender list. It's a crime but I'd consider it a far cry from predatory sex crimes like rape or child molestation.

Some jurisdictions seem to have better coverage than other but it's worth checking out so at least you won't be unaware of all the Deathwish III action going down on the block over.

Oh and if you just want to see all the foreclosed homes in your neighborhood, go here.

4 Stories About Jimmy Carter’s Malaise Speech
Just over 30 years ago Jimmy Carter gave one of his most infamous speeches, the so-called "malaise speech", that essentially blamed the US people for the problems his administration was having. Of course he never actually used the 'm' word - his pollster, Pat Fuckin' Caddell, had used it in a memo - and Ted Kennedy seems to be the first person to refer to it that way. Funny how all those problems seemed to fade away after Jan. 20, 1981.

Awesome New Training Rounds For the US Military, Police
It's always better to train like you fight and fight like you trained. However when it comes to close quarter combat shooting this gets difficult due to safety issues when using live rounds, and even blanks have their risks. But these new rounds are much safer and only require changing out the bolt. Otherwise they operate similar to regular ammunition and troops can train with the same rifles they'll use in combat.

Dirty Hippy Clowns Protest Against U.S. Base in Japan
Face paint. Check. Drums. Check. Goofy dancing. Check. Mindless chants. Check. Small crowds. Check. Utter ineffectiveness. Check. The judges score this a solid 8.9 on the lefty street theater scale.

The Brits and The Americans Aren't The Only Ones Fighting in Afghanistan
The Danes are fighting there too. And while their government may be euro-feckless, the Danish soldiers are not. Here's a trailer for a just released documentary, Armadillo, about their experience there.

My Karma Sutra Buddy
Pick your guy, girl and position and they'll demonstrate it for you. No nudity but probably NSFWish due to the midget stuff.
