Overnight Thread-Battlewatch Edition [CDR M]

Evening Moron Nation! CDR M checking in for duty. Crazy day with all that is happening in Egypt this fine Friday. I couldn't help but think of this quote today after seeing how the Obama Administration has responded so far (and not just to this incident either).

Admiral Josh Painter: "This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it."

Speaking of disasters, this is a great read on what would have happened If A Liberal And A Tea Partier Had Been Aboard The Titanic.

This does not sound good. World's Muslim population to double in 20 years. Pakistan is projected to overtake Indonesia as the most populous Muslim country. I bet they won't. Nukes have a nasty side effect in regard to densely populated urban centers and something tells me that Pakistan is headed down that road.

For your daily war pron requirement, here's a nice pictorial of The Gatling Gun (h/t The Brigade).

Remember when the U.N. issued a report that said the Himalayan Glaciers would all be melted within a quarter cetnury? Um, yeah. Not so much. They're actually advancing, like, you know, growing. Yay, the Yeti is saved!

So how smart do you think you are? Do you think you can get this right? It's called The Pschopath Test.

So, the e-mail goes like this:

Read this question, then come up with an answer. This is not a trick question. It is as it reads. No one I know has gotten it right. Few people do.

A woman, while at the funeral of her own mother, met a man she did not know.

She thought the man was amazing. She believed him to be the man of her dreams--so much that she fell in love with him right there, but she never asked for his number and afterwards couldn't find him.

A few days later she killed her sister.

Question: What was her motive for killing her sister?

Here's the answer.

Interesting. US Crude Oil Production at the end of 2010 was 5.616 million barrels per day, highest since 2003. Wait, what??? We better keep this on the downlow. Wouldn't want the Prez getting all worked up over this.


Ah, the United States of Beer.
Nevada. Four Loco? Really?

ABC is bringing back Charlie's Angels. Good lord they are running out of ideas. Since we're bringing back 80's shows, how about Airwolf damnit?

Now, I know some of you have wondered what your call sign would be if you were a Naval Aviator. Here's your chance. I present to you a chance to earn your callsign with the Top Gun Call Sign Generator Heh. Barack Obama's callsign came up Zomby!

OK, name this actress! I know, I know it's easy but this actress kicks ass on anyone today. Very easy on the eyes.

I think this is the first picture of Ace's new pad. Not quite the Ewok village but it does have it's advantages. Pretty good range of fire for any hobos that come scroungin' around.

That's all I got tonight fellow morons. I gotta get back to the battlewatch. Strategery or somethin'.
