Overnight Open Thread

Me tired tonight. Don't feel like using my words. So we watch videos.

The USNA Commandant's Impromptu Speech

That he gave the night Bin Laden's death was announced to a group of jubilant midshipmen who appeared at his house. The video keeps getting taken down, but I don't see what's objectionable about it other than the naked display of patriotic pride and enthusiam. (thanks to genghis)

(video moved below the fold due to page-loading issues - genghis)

Remember This MLK Quote
That was being sent around after Bin Laden got wasted and people were happy about it:

"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy."
Well it's fake. Just like this well known but fake H.L. Mencken quote:
"When fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in the flag and waving a cross."
But everything Thomas Jefferson ever said, well he really did say that.

The Weirdness of David Brooks: Yo! Douchebag!
So David Brook's latest book, The Social Animal, seems chock full of weirdness and at times is almost Moronic but minus any humor. Here are a few of the odder sentences that the reviewer picked out. (thanks to Slublog)

Imagine a man who buys a chicken from the grocery store, manages to bring himself to orgasm by penetrating it, then cooks and eats the chicken.
Like most women, she got lubricated even while looking at nature shows of animals copulating, even though consciously the thought of being aroused by animals was repellent.
‘This hand reaching to touch me across the table is not quite like my mother’s hand. It’s more like the hand of other people I wanted to have sex with.’

How To Celebrate Osama Being Dead Dead Dead
Well how else would ya do it?

Wow China Makes Everything
Apparently the rumors of the 'helping hand' sperm bank clinics were false, but they do have this machine. Just remember that there are whole teams of engineers with factories designing this. We must close the sex machine gap!

5 Movies On Netflix Instant Watch That You Should Watch Right Now
In case you're wondering they are:

3. Let The Right One In

Oldboy gets lots of buzz and sounds interesting so maybe I'll check it out.

How To 'Make Friends' With Cheetahs
Here Namibian conservationist and hawtie Marlice van Vuuren convinces a group of cheetahs to accept her as one of their own by "teasing" them. Probably not recommended unless you're very, very un-dinner-like.

Jack’s Social Studies Project: Roman Battle Tactics
Here's a claymation video explaining Roman infantry tactics created by Jack who is 11 years old for his social studies class. And it's surprisingly entertaining and educational for a two minute video of clay. But the best part is the YouTube comments where people are seriously debating Roman battle techniques. If you feel like stirring up trouble, drop by and opine on the advantages of longbows.

Would You Wear These Shoes?
From Christian Louboutin these are perfect for the cheetah tamer who wants to look stylish when she's not out on the savannah.
