Overnight Open Thread-Twinkle Edition

Evenin' y'all!! I'm so glad for this work week to be over. Of course, those poor saps of OWS are still "workin'" around the clock, livin' in their filth and demandin' free shiite. You would think that when Ayatollah's and others not so friendly to the US begin to publicly support your cause, you just might be on the wrong side. Just sayin'. I agree with George Will on this too. 'I Wish The Occupy Wall Street Demonstrators Long Life And Ample Publicity'.

Here's what Batman thinks of the OWS idiots.

Speaking of Batman, here's the brand new trailer for Arkham City. Damn this looks good.

10 Cities In The Sights Of Volcanoes

Some time ago, I was stationed in Sicily and lived right at the base of Mt. Etna and I admit, it was pretty damn cool to be outside grillin' a steak, drinkin' a beer and watch the lava flow down and see some pretty impressive fireworks belchin' out the top. But then the winds would shift and the damn ash cloud would rain down inches of ash every day for weeks on end. That sucked. The ash would get everywhere and ruined a lot of things like brake pads, electronics, etc. Anywho, here are 10 Cities In The Sights Of Volcanoes.

The Straight Dope

Haha! Someone actually wondered if they could kill a T-Rex with a Beretta 9mm pistol.

Based on his study of bullet geometry, penetration, and stopping power, Templar has developed a metric for ammunition effectiveness he calls "Terminal Medicine," coyly abbreviated "T.Rx." To reliably kill an adult tyrannosaurus, he asserts, your ammo must have a T.Rx value of at least 93. If you think the animal might be in heavy bush, wounded, or otherwise pissed off, you may need something with a T.Rx value of 106 or more.

Templar's top-rated cartridge is a 4-bore Nitro, a bratwurst-sized round with a T.Rx score of 362 that looks like it'd punch through a brick wall. If you'd rather not have the recoil dislocate your shoulder, you can get by with the venerable .460 Weatherby, number 32 on his list, which posts a respectable 113.

Post Office Rescue Plan

You know, I have noticed I have gotten a shiite ton more junk mail in the last year. Now I know why. It's all part of the plan. The Post Office's Rescue Plan: Junk Mail. Bastards! Gee, I wonder what all those environmentalists think of all those trees used to make the junk mail and the carbon footprint of the vehicles to deliver it? Owl Gore, you there?

Mile High Club

Meh. I saw the video and the pilot was NOT distracted. Probably because the movie wasn't even up to Shannon Tweed Skinemax standards. Not sure the FAA has a case here. Video Of Couple Having Sex While Sky Diving Sparks Probe By Aviation Watch Dog Agency.

US Marines

Pretty good video of Marines in Afghanistan from last year. The action clips start at 4:06.

Rome, Sweet Rome

A few weeks ago, Maet posted a link to an original short story about a Marine Expeditionary Unit getting transported back in time from Afghanistan to Ancient Rome. Well, here's an update. Warners Nabs 'Rome, Sweet Rome'. This could be an entertaining movie if done right. We'll see.

Dances With The Stars

mpfs sent this tip in to me and wow, just wow. I would totally watch this show. Not the American one. The Argentinian one. Woman Gets Completely Naked On Argentina's Dances With The Stars. There is video at the link and it is NSFW if you play it.

When Nancy Grace slipped a nipple on Dancing with the Stars, it caused a huge uproar. Now imagine if Nancy Grace ripped off her top, exposed her breasts, humped her partner, took off her G-string, and appeared completely naked. Oh, and Nancy Grace was a gorgeous model. That's what happened Sunday on Argentina's version of Dancing with the Stars.
