Overnight Open Thread

So. 2012 is nearly upon us and that usually means a plethora of new laws go into effect. What does your state have in store for you? Here's a taste of some of those new 2012 Laws. mpfs informs me that in CA, you will now be required to get a doctors prescription for cough syrup. WTF? That'll go over well.

Abandoned Brothels

Well since Ace broke the seal and talked about that Area 51 Alien brothel opening up, here's what it'll probably look it in a few short years. When The Red Light Goes Out: Stunning Photographs Capture Eeriness Of World's Abandoned Brothels.

Men Hairstyles

Thankfully, I've never had one of these 9 Worst Hair Fads of All-Time.

Finally! A use for a Corgi!

Video Game Players Out Of Control

This is just friggin' stupid. Chinese Guy Pays $16K For A Virtual Sword. I hope Kratos does not fall for this and buy a certain pulsating blue sword.

Ridiculous Gun Myths

Oh yes. Another thing to thank Hollywood for. 5 Ridiculous Gun Myths Everyone Believes Thanks To Movies.

The Myth: Cautious spies and assassins know that if you're going to take out a bad guy in an office or a library, be sure to use a silencer. It turns the concussive "bang" into a neutered "ptew."

An unsilenced gunshot is around 140 to 160 decibels--that's in the range where hearing it once can permanently damage your ears. If you've never had a gun go off next to you, trust us when we say it's loud enough that your whole body will flinch at the sound of it. A silencer can get that all the way down to 120 or 130 decibles, aka the sound of a jackhammer. Still loud enough to cause physical pain if it's close enough to you.

So a silencer really just makes a large gun sound like a smaller gun. If you're James Bond and are sneaking into the enemy's compound with a silenced pistol, you're basically hoping the guards will decide your gun is too small and wimpy to be a serious threat, and leave you be.

More Wine Benefits

Well according to this study, Women Who Drink Wine Everyday Have Better Sex. I assume that includes the boxed variety? Drink up ladies!

Cocaine And Changing Tables

This one I don't get. Cocaine Found On 9 Out Of 10 Public Changing Tables. Why on earth would you want to snort or cut your coke on a changing table that has had some nasty ass diaper on it or worse? Snort at your own risk I guess.

Well, that's all I got tonight folks. Enjoy the weekend!
