Overnight Open Thread - Pre-Hurricane Edition

NC Governor Declares Every CCW Permit in East NC Invalid Due to Hurricane Irene

In his defense this probably wasn't his her intent - NC recently passed a law that automatically suspends all CCW permits whenever the governor declares an emergency in an area.

Thanks to a brain-dead state law foisted upon us by a Democratic state legislature (N.C. Gen. Stat. § 14-288.7), every time the governor—in this instance, Democrat Beverly Perdue—declares a state of emergency, it is illegal from that moment onward to carry a concealed weapon until the state of emergency has been declared over.
This is an idiotic law and any arrests are just asking for jury nullification. So what are the NC laws on open carry?

Muammar ♡'s Condi

A lot. So much so that he had a very special scrapbook full of pictures of her.

A bizarre photograph album filled page to page with pictures of Condoleezza Rice has been found at the compound of Colonel Gaddafi.

...Perhaps the most surprising, however, was the album, filled with glossy pictures of America's former Secretary of State.

Colonel Gaddafi had previously hinted at a serious admiration for Mrs Rice.

...'I support my darling black African woman,' he said at the time. 'I admire and am very proud of the way she leans back and gives orders to the Arab leaders. ... Leezza, Leezza, Leezza. ... I love her very much. I admire her, and I'm proud of her, because she's a black woman of African origin.'

No word on what happened to the Condi suit he was making.

Russia Approves Siberia-Alaska Railway
Time to start buying up Alaskan property?

The 64-mile (103km) tunnel would connect the far east of Russia with Alaska, opening up the prospect of the ultimate rail trip across three quarters of the globe from London to New York. The link would be twice as long as the Channel Tunnel connecting Britain and France.
Russian officials insist that the tunnel is an economic idea whose time has now come and that it could be ready within ten years. They argue that it would repay construction costs by stimulating up to 100 million tons of freight traffic each year, as well as supplying oil, gas and electricity from Siberia to the US and Canada.

Some of these have already appeared on the HQ but I do like the creativity involved in reviewing a land cruiser/tank.

The Wonder That Is Vodka
Suddenly vodka is a billion-dollar business - how did that happen?

But through it all, there is one constant, a commodity that has not only survived during these harsh economic times, but even thrived.

Vodka.

The next time you visit a bar, see if you can count on one hand the number of vodkas on the shelf. Chances are you’ll need both hands, and possibly feet.

My favorite (which I found to be sweet, citrusy, and with only a slight burn) was Skyy, a vodka I actually do enjoy. Second was Stolichnaya (almost minty). Third was an artisanal vodka called Smooth Ambler (which has those hints of aforementioned banana but felt a little rough around the edges). Much to my surprise, my least favorite turned out to be Ketel One, a vodka I would normally choose over Stolichnaya. But perhaps this shouldn’t have come as a surprise. In 2005 the New York Times conducted its own tasting of 21 super premium and craft vodkas. The coordinator, Bernard Kirsch, however, had secretly inserted Smirnoff into the mix.

Take a guess which vodka was judged the favorite.

New Things To Fret Over: Do You Have Cleavage Wrinkles?

According to the New York Times: "Cleavage wrinkles are deep, vertical creases caused by hours spent sleeping on one’s side, where gravity forces the top breast to bend farther past the body’s midline than it should. The lines can also be caused by sports and push-up bras, which smush the breasts together and are often worn for hours."

And Is Your Dog Watching Too Much TV?
Probably. And that time could be better spent butt-licking and chasing squirrels.
Dogs in the UK watch almost an hour of TV every day, according to new research.

Experts say the number of canines addicted to television is set to rise as the nation continues to make the switch from analogue to digital - because the clearer picture is easier for dogs to watch.
