Overnight Open Thread

[Note - comments seem to be down. People have been notified, but since it's 2am Mars time, it could be a while until pixy reboots the hamsters. Until then you can play here]

Thanks to a confluence of work and personal business today I've had zero time to work on the ONT. So tonight's gonna be Teh Sux0r.

But hey no one reads the items anyway so no harm, no foul right?

However I can offer you this new meme - Emilio Estevez.

Sure he's not as entertaining as Charlie, but he's also a lot less likely to strangle you for kicks during a coke binge.


And those reports of Charlie Sheen waving a machete from a building rooftop in Beverly Hills - not a parody. That's how Charlie always celebrates Monday.

Can You Beat A Machine at Rock-paper-Scissors?
Probably not - because this machine is smart and humans are very bad at being random.

Be sure to play at least five rounds, and then click on the button to see what the computer is thinking. In veteran mode, the computer searches its database for sequences that match your last five moves and its last five moves and then tries to predict what you'll throw next.

Could The House From Up! Really Exist?
Answer: Yes.


The Real Tiger Blood
It's called Neuropeptide Y and special forces got it:

Special forces soldiers, who had thirty-three percent higher plasma levels of neuropeptide Y than general troop soldiers, were found to possess clearer minds and to have out-performed other soldiers under stress. In a related study, Morgan and colleagues also discovered that soldiers in Combat Dive training who released more NPY during stress excelled in underwater navigation, and that hostage rescue team members with higher NPY levels during stress performed better.

Phil Collins Retiring From Music
Due to various health problems. And he seems pretty depressed about it.

"I don't really belong to that world and I don't think anyone's going to miss me. I'm much happier just to write myself out of the script entirely.

"I'll go on a mysterious biking holiday and never return. That would be a great way to end the story, wouldn't it?" Collins, who lives alone in Switzerland after divorcing his third wife in 2007, has enjoyed huge popularity over 40 years as both a drummer and singer with the rock band Genesis and then as one of the biggest-earning solo artists of all time.

I hope his friends are keeping a close eye on him.

When Trucks Fly
Keep your arms and legs inside the ride vehicle at all times. Do not play in or taunt happy fun truck.

Know Your Rights - TSA Edition
Here's a handy PDF listing what your rights are when dealing with the TSA.


Well Finally!
There are now Twilight-themed sex toys:

Donít be surprised if this toy seduces you, its long sleek shaft and deliciously ridged head calling out to you in the night. But donít save this for just nocturnal escapades, try taking our Vamp out in the sunlight and watch it sparkle.
And the user reviews are pretty funny too.
