Overnight Open Thread
Ah yes. It's Caturday. What better way to start it off than to talk about a kitteh that didn't quite get his story told in the movie Alien. Yeah, that's right. A Ginger Kitteh. Jonesy Tells His Side Of The Story.
When, at the end of Alien, Sigourney Weaver says, "This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off," she's not telling the whole truth. Because there's another survivor, curled up with her in the hypersleep capsule. Jones (or Jonesey) the ginger tom.
I don't know why, but I think I want to see this movie. Iron Sky Trailer Reveals Space Nazis. It looks campy, cheesy and funny. I mean, c'mon, Nazi's on the dark side of the moon? Space ship Zepplins? Space Messerschmidts? Yeah, I'm in. Hell, Indiana Jones probably makes a cameo!
Fight's on. In one corner, we have a kitteh. In the other, a flap door. Ready, fight!
Now, some of you morons might be wondering why I have a picture of Christina Hendricks up for a story on survival. Well, it turns out, she just might be key for your very survival if you are ever stranded on an island. The Next Time You're Stranded On An Island With Only One Food Source, Make Sure It's Breast Milk.
...There is one food that has it all: the one that keeps babies alive. "The only food that provides all the nutrients that humans need is human milk," [explains Jo Ann Hattner, a nutrition consultant at Stanford University School of Medicine and former national spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association]. "Mother's milk is a complete food. We may add some solid foods to an infant's diet in the first year of life to provide more iron and other nutrients, but there is a little bit of everything in human milk."
This 8 year old girl is amazing on the guitar.
Uggs Are An STD Indicator
Oh boy. This ought to be a lively discussion topic. Did You Know Uggs Mean You Have Chlamydia?
These days, hating Uggs has become a bit of a cliché. So one writer decided to kick things up a notch, by plotting the boots on a "Scale of Whoredom" from "Sorority Slut" to truck-stop prostitute. Apparently you can tell by a lady's footwear if she has breast implants, a history of sex work, or an STI.
Sex In Space
Well since setting up lunar bases and such is in the news, I'm sure this topic is going to come up and sure enough, there has already been some research. Astronauts Test Sex In Space-But Did The Earth Move?
He cites a confidential Nasa report on a space shuttle mission in 1996. A project codenamed STS-XX was to explore sexual positions possible in a weightless atmosphere.
OK, when he said guinea pigs, did he literally mean guinea pigs or was it being used as a descriptive term for two, ahem, astronauts?
It's Not A Tumor
Poor kitteh. Cat Thought To Have A Giant Tumor Had Furball In Her Stomach The Size Of Two Cricket Balls. Somebody wasn't brushing their kitteh very well.
