Overnight Thread-Devil Dog Edition [CDR M]

Evenin' morons! It's another fine Saturday and it is my honor to entertain you morons so go get a cold one and stand the hell by for some typical ONT links, videos and, well, just some silliness and mind blowing information.

Now last Saturday we had a nice graphical math equation. Tonight we'll do a little geometry but I imagine it will frustrate you more than make you laugh as the last one did. I know it did for me for a little while before the CFL came on. Don't worry, I've been told the President still hasn't figured this one out.

Math Trick


Now for a little musical intro:


Now I'm sure some of you have noted that this ONT is the Devil Dog edition. I decided to name it that as I saw some kick ass video of a documentary on some Marines that was filmed last year in Afghanistan.

Operation Mushtaraq was massive news all over the world when it happened. But only one journalist was with the Marines inside Marjah. Ben Anderson spent two months with Bravo Company 1/6 Marines, eating, sleeping, running and sweating alongside them every step of the way.
The access he achieved and the 50 hours of battle footage he obtained is intimate and unprecedented and forms the basis of this extraordinary film. The result is unlike any other war documentary: personal, intense, incredibly close-up and dangerous.
Bravo Company was the first and only platoon dropped into the centre of Marjah. These young Marines found themselves in a maze of IEDs, bunkers, trenches and ambushes, set by very well-trained fighters.

Well done Marines. Semper Fi.


Tomorrow is the Super Bowl and I don't have a dog in this fight so it should at least be a damn entertaining one. I think GB is gonna win. Of course, it helps to know that Obama has decided to bring his blessing of doom and curse the Steelers! Well, maybe not an out and out endorsement as he did for the Steelers against the Cardinals, but you know he and Rooney are good buds so it stands to reason that Obama IS rooting for the Steelers. That's your boy Rooney! Now here's a little trivia test for y'all. How well do you know stuff about Pittsburgh or Green Bay?


Your Obligatory Dog Video:


Fox babe

Now I really don't get what the big deal on this is but the Huffington Post sure hates it. Chyron of the Day: Boobs.


Oh, that's right. It's Caturday right? Well this video is an extra special treat for you Caturdayians. Those Brits are so damn clever. I present, Single White Feline.



This is one strange site but here you can get your very own unicorn (well before the one Obama promised you). You'll have to add your own Skittles though. This artist takes real animal parts and then puts them together to create strange and or mythical creatures. Like the two-headed Chernobyl chicken or a Griffin. I could see Kratos getting a Griffin.


Whoa. Talk about when headlines go bad!

R2-D2 is a little pimp daddy! Those have got to be GE models. They'll shack up with anyone (see GE CEO and the White House)

Was This Really Necessary? Katy Perry's cover on Rolling Stone photoshopped.

Heh. Funny Protest Pic of the Day.



In movie news, it would seem there will be a Die Hard 5, maybe. Working title so far is Die Hard 24/7. And it will feature another Gruber family member. So who should play the next Gruber bad guy? Or will it be a woman this time?


Awesome! 10 Foods You Can Make In A Coffee Maker. I don't know about cookin' chicken in something you are gonna make coffee out of later.


Revolving Shotgun Built From Scratch. Awesome. I want one!

Caturday bonus picture:


Why the F*&$ aren't we building more nuke plants? It seems the Nuclear Renaissance died in 2008. Hmmm, right around Obama showed up. We need to push hard on this. The freakin' Chinese are beating us at this and judging by the number of stories of rolling blackouts, it's something we could use NOW. Just wait until all those electric cars start plugging in. Good times.

Almost forgot, but it's time for name this classic Hollywood starlet!

Mystery Actress

Well moron nation, that's all I got tonight. Gotta get back to work. Drink up and commence the commentary!
