Overnight Open Thread-Zombies, Brains and Boobeh's Edition [CDR M]

Ah yes, it's Friday! So much Doom! this week that it's only fitting to start off the ONT talking about, well, a bomb that will bring Doom! to our enemies. The above pic is one of the MOP (Massive Ordnance Penetrator). Here's the latest on where we are at with this 30,000 pound harbinger of kinetic action.

Unlike the MOAB, however, this project’s goal is a GPS-guided, penetrating weapon that can be carried aboard B-52 Stratofortress or B-2 Spirit bombers to defeat “a specialized set of hard and deeply buried targets” like bunkers and tunnel facilities. Some graphics show expectations of over 60 feet of concrete destroyed, and a USAF article stated that the bomb was meant to penetrate 200 feet underground before exploding.

So while Iran makes empty threats (for now), Uncle Sam has got a little present in the works for you baby. Say hallow to my lil' fruend!


The Zombie Survival 5K Run
This has got to be right up runningrn's alley. I'm so tempted. A Zombie Infested 5K Obstacle Course Race. One thing is bothering me though after watching the video. When the hell could zombies friggin' run? Here's the the deal:

Protect your brain and run for your life. This is one race where your legs giving out are the least of your problems. Run For Your Lives is a first-of-its-kind event, one part 5K, one part obstacle course, one part escaping the clutches of zombies — and all parts awesome.

Runners will navigate a series of 12 obstacles throughout a 5K course in an attempt to reach the finish line — all while avoiding zombies. At the end of this adventure race, you get to celebrate survival (or zombie transformation) with live entertainment and music, local celebrities, vendors, food, and of course, beer!



Dieting Forces Brain To Eat Itself?
Well, that's what some UK scientists are saying. So starving yourself makes you hungrier? Wow, who would've thought that?

Like other parts of the body, brain cells begin to eat themselves as a last-ditch source of energy to ward off starvation, a study found.

The body responds by producing fatty acids, which turn up the hunger signal in the brain and increase our impulse to eat.


This Is Your Brain, Aroused
So does this research like point the way to the fabled g-spot? What does it mean?!


Lead researcher Barry R. Komisaruk told New Scientist that for an unspecified number of women, nipple stimulation led to genital activation. "When I tell my male neuroscientist colleagues about this, they say: 'Wow, that's an exception to the classical homunculus. But when I tell the women they say: 'Well, yeah?'"

Clothing and Thermal Insulation
Well, it is the ONT and I'm sure most of you are wearing the appropriate level of clothes (which is supposed to be not much), but if you aren't and you are feeling hot, well this chart breaks down how various garments insulate heat for ya. So if you are feeling a bit warm right now, well, you are overdressed for the festivities. Kindly disrobe and get comfortable. And grab a cold one.

15 Incredible Escape Tools Made By Prison Inmates
Take notes my friends. This could come in handy when we are rounded up and put into the camps.


This was more than just ingenious; it worked as well! A shotgun made of iron bedposts. The charge came from lead in curtain tape and was set off by AA batteries. Prisoners took a hostage, fired at a pane of glass and broke out into a waiting car on May 21, 1984.


Guess The 'Ette!
Well, tonight we have a new game to play. It's called guess the 'ette! I'd give a clue about her nic but then it would give away who she is. Be nice. CC or Circa can probably guess who it is. Let's just say she promised on a previous ONT a "booby prize" and is coming through on that promise.
