Overnight Open Thread-Friggatriskaidekaphobia Edition

Evening y'all. Um, Friday the 13th is it? Be careful out there, if you believe in superstition. Evidently, a lot of you DO have a fear of Friday the 13th. The official names for fear of Friday the 13th are friggatriskaidekaphobia and paraskevidekatriaphobia according to this article: Friday The 13th: The Superstitions And Skeptics.

An article on the National Geographic website reports that between 17 million and 21 million people in the U.S. suffer from some degree of fear related to the day.

So how many of you morons fear Friday the 13th?

US vs IRAN

Well, the Iranians have been in the news a lot lately with their threats of shutting down the Strait of Hormuz. It wasn't too long ago that we were engaged in combat against the Iranians. Here's a recap of our previous engagements with the Iranians.


The Iranian frigate IS Sahand (F 74) burns after being attacked by the Joseph Strauss and A-6s. Sahand was hit by three Harpoon missiles, Skipper rocket-propelled bombs, a Walleye laser-guided bomb, and several 1,000-pound bombs. U.S. Navy photo

Haha. This video cracks me up. WARNING: There is a bit of language so if you are at work, be careful with the volume.

Bizarre Sex Deaths

I think this list was written before David Carradine's unfortunate foray into deviant sexual behavior in Thailand but here are 5 Most Bizarre Deaths During Sexual Intercourse.

There’s something horribly ironic about dying in a funeral hearse. But it happens; just look at the case of Jose Agustino Noha. He worked in a funeral home and romantically had a favourite hearse he used to invite his girlfriend to spend some quality time in with him. After one occasion of doing the dirty the couple fell asleep and never woke up again. They’d suffocated in their sleep after leaving the car running and carbon monoxide was leaked from the engine.

Unicorn Poop

Well, I'm still waiting on my damn Skittle Poopin' Unicorn but you can at least Make Your Own Unicorn Poop.

This unicorn poop, in reality, has a funny story. I told my mom that I was making some "Unicorn Sneezes" and she said "when are you going to make your unicorn sh*t?" And then it hit me...Great idea, Mom! It will take a dirty spin and become unicorn poop, instead! She doesn't want the credit for encouraging me, but I still thank her. Haha. BTW: These things are sparkly to the max. Even more-so than ANY art project. I wish that the video would have captured the magic. *cry*

The real deal - it's made of sugar cookies, rainbow dragees, rainbow star sprinkles, white sparkle gel, and rainbow disco dust.
