Overnight Open Thread

The Most Pr0n-Crazed Nations in the World?

Unshockingly they seem to be Middle Eastern Muslim ones:

Last year, Google ran an analysis of its search queries and concluded Pakistan is the leading nation in sex-related, porn content searches, leading Fox News to dub the nation “Pornistan.” Iran came in third on the overall list, and Egypt was fifth.

And yes - sometimes the stereotypes are true:

Pakistan is top dog in searches per-person for "horse sex" since 2004, "donkey sex" since 2007, "rape pictures" between 2004 and 2009, "rape sex" since 2004, "child sex" between 2004 and 2007 and since 2009, "animal sex" since 2004 and "dog sex" since 2005, according to Google Trends and Google Insights, features of Google that generate data based on popular search terms.

The country also is tops -- or has been No. 1 -- in searches for "sex," "camel sex," "rape video," "child sex video" and some other searches that can't be printed here.

Moats: More Than Just For Keeping Brown People Out

They also can keep out the brown-ish mighty Mississippi river. Zombies too.

Not The Onion: Zimbabwe Worried About Strength, Stability of US Dollar
Well they would have a pretty good idea of where quantitative easing leads:

THE central bank says the country must consider adopting a gold-backed Zimbabwean dollar warning that the US greenback’s days as the world’s reserve currency are numbered.

Government ditched the Zimbabwe dollar in 2009 after it had been rendered worthless by record inflation levels and adopted multiple foreign currencies with the US dollar, the South African Rand and the Botswana being the most widely used.

“We need to re-think our gold-mining strategy, our gold-liberalisation and marketing strategies as a country. The world needs to and will most certainly move to a gold standard and Zimbabwe must lead the way.”

Gono said the inflationary effects of United States’ deficit financing of its budget was likely to impact other countries to leading to a resistance of the green back as a base currency.

Medicare Will Be Broke by 2016
For once Democrats may have screwed up with their #2 demagogic issue: The inevitable crash might happen on their watch:

If Congress doesn’t allow the reimbursement cuts to take place as scheduled, Medicare will be broke by 2016. Again, that’s not me saying it, that’s the Secretary of HHS saying it. Even that estimate may turn out to be too upbeat if the economy fails to pick up as expected.

Mark my words, if Obama wins reelection in 2012 Medicare will almost certainly collapse on his watch.

Aspiring demagogues take note - Always make sure the piper will come due when the audience you're lying to is dead.

The Cicadas Are Coming
After 13 years of lurking and quietly building their forces in the ground the cicadas are launching their assault on the southern states and no crop, tree, or shrub is safe. By the end of July they'll all be dead, and their children will once again be exiled to their dirt prison. Interestingly different species of cicada have slightly different cycles, but they're nearly always prime numbers which reduces the frequency that their hatches will ever overlap.

Is Big Hair Back?
Well it IS probably due for a comeback, and recent poofy hair spotted on SJP and Cheryl Cole could be the prophesied signs. Maybe it's time to go long on hair spray futures.
