Overnight Thread-Hotheaded Naked Ice Borer Edition [CDR M]

Well, well. I'm back! Happy April Fools Day y'all! Yeah, yeah, I know most of you are hoping this is a trick but nope, you are stuck with me tonight. As usual, go get that preferred liquid beverage of your choice or comfort food and enjoy!

Now that is a picture of that rare creature known as the Hotheaded Naked Ice Borer. Never heard of it? Me neither until today.

These bizarre creatures were each about half a foot long, very light, and had a bony plate attached to their head that could become burning hot, allowing them to bore tunnels through ice at high speeds. They used this ability to hunt penguins. Packs of them would melt the ice beneath a penguin causing it to sink into the slush, at which point the borers would surround the hapless creature and consume it.

Pretty cool huh? Here's more of the story here. I think only a honey badger would mess with this bad boy.


Ok, if you haven't figured it out yet, that was an April Fools joke in Discovery Magazine back in April of 1995. Since it is April Fool's Day, here is a pretty good read on some other historical April Fool's Jokes that have occured. The Top 100 April Fool's Hoaxes Of All Time.


Ah, here's a movie trailer that just hit the streets today and I'm sure will entertain the moron herd. I present to you the Red Band Trailer for HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN! Warning: It is the red band trailer which means it is violent and has language and gore. Don't say you weren't warned.


Expendables 2

In other movie news, it would seem that Justin Bieber is going to be in Expendables 2. He's going to play Stallone's son. Oh please, please let this be an April Fool's Joke and if it isn't, then I hope he dies a graphic, horrible death in the first 5 minutes of the movie.


Now this little musical rap ditty is pretty damn funny. It is a rap duel between Einstein and Stephen Hawking.


This can't be good for the Pennsylvania economy. According to Cato@Liberty blog, Hershey's is going to raise its prices by 9.7% across the board. Time to start hoardin' the chocolate now morons. This ain't an April's Fool Hoax.

Budget Battle

Also at Cato@Liberty, 2011 Budget Battle In Perspective. Yeah, that's right. The politicians are arguing over those teeny little columns on the far right. Pretty pathetic. Can I get some kinetic action going on to lower our deficit/spending?


OK, I've found it. It's the Obama Doctrine!


h/t Theo Spark.


OK, time for a little fighter pron. This is a montage from a French movie called Les Chevaliers du ciel (Sky Fighters). It was a 2005 film about two French Air Force pilots preventing a terrorist attack on the Bastille Day celebrations in Paris. Pretty damn good cinematography.


Here is some of the dogfighting in that movie.
