Overnight Open Thread

Hey Gas prices Are Getting Kinda High Again

In fact the average price for a gallon of gas is the highest it's been in almost two years. Funny how the media aren't doing any more "Pain at the Pump" stories or questioning whether the White House is too friendly with the oil companies.


And even adjusting for inflation we're still on par with 1978:


So let's see - high gas prices, high unemployment - all we need now is high inflation to complete the Carter trifecta.

Medical Care Queues To Get Longer

“Even if you have great private health insurance now you won’t in your old age. My advice: plan accordingly. Start preparing for it by accumulating money. . . . You have been warned. What to do about it? Cut your spending and put aside more in retirement accounts. Also, when making career choices go for the money. The utility of money is going to rise with advances in biotechnology. Some extra tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars set aside for medical expenses might save your life.”
Yep cash is king. Benefits can always be whittled down or taken away completely. Cash not so much.

Palin Derangement Syndrome Part CLXXII
I blame the AP photographer for his choice of photos and the misleading captions given them. And the rest of the media commenting on them for not bothering to do any checking at all. When it comes to Palin layers of fact checking simply do not apply - if you feel it, it must be true. And they feel teh hate.

The 1968 Playmate - Roman Polanski - 2010 Attempted Murder Connection
Apparently Miss May 1968, Angela Dorian, shot her husband in the back in October of this year. He survived and it turns out the gun she used, a Walther PPK, was given to Dorian by Roman Polanski back in 1969 after his wife was killed because he feared for her safety.


Some Retro Pictures of New York


The Gamut of Alternative Medicine
Luckily most of these are just ineffective rather than actively harmful. But gullible Western women will always pay top dollar for them.


The 10 Smartest Porn Stars
Most of the porno stars that have managed to stay around for a while have something going on upstairs. And some of them have advanced degrees as well. No doubt Ron Jeremy uses his social worker skills daily.


Sky God Angry!!
Now throw stones at Gaia.


The Yahoo AoSHQ group. Bla bla bla. And don't forget about the Job Bank.
