Overnight Open Thread

Hmmm. Just when you think you know a lot about World War II, something new comes out. This is pretty big and of course, our news folks here whistle right on by it. Secret Documents Lift Lid On WWII Mutiny By US Troops In North Queensland.

An Australian historian has uncovered hidden documents which reveal that African American troops used machine guns to attack their white officers in a siege on a US base in north Queensland in 1942.

Information about the Townsville mutiny has never been released to the public.

But the story began to come to light when James Cook University's Ray Holyoak first began researching why US congressman Lyndon B Johnson visited Townsville for three days back in 1942.

What he discovered was evidence detailing one of the biggest uprisings within the US military.

"For 70 years there's been a rumour in Townsville that there was a mutiny among African-American servicemen. In the last year and a half I've found the primary documentation evidence that that did occur in 1942," Mr Holyoak told AM.


It'll be interesting to see where this goes.


Hello Kitty

I think chemjeff is booking his flight to Japan right now for this. Hello Kitty To Become A Hooters Girl For Valentine's Day. What's Fapplebee's gonna do to match this?

To really tap into the Valentine’s Day spirit, Hooters Tokyo has hired Hello Kitty herself to get her teeties out and sell some wings. In addition, they’ll be serving up some special Valentine’s parfaits: a reasonably sized one called Rock of Love selling for $10 and a biggun named Volcano of Love (teehee!) which is about $30.

Man the French can't even get this right. I guess they didn't want to translate the jive straight up.

How Movies/TV Shows Really Ended

I gotta say, I do like this list. 10 Movies And TV Shows Where Everybody Probably Died Five Minutes After It Ended.

10. Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
This is the one that everybody always points out, but it's still true. There's even a whole "Endor Holocaust" page, detailing just how screwed those Ewoks are. According to Dr. Curtis Saxon, an astrophysicist at the Mullard Space Science Lab, "The explosion of a small artificial moon in low orbit sends a meteoric rain onto the Ewok sanctuary, on a scale unmatched since Endor formed. Through either direct atmospheric injection of small particles, or showers of ejecta from large impacts, the atmosphere will be filled with smoke and fallout causing a gargantuan nuclear-winter effect." In other words, there should be debris raining down on that little "Yub Nub" party shortly after Luke finishes basking in the warm glow of Anakin, Yoda and Obi-Wan.

Wine Ice Cubes

Roger over at Theo Spark mentions that someone has come up with a plan to deal with leftover wine and I'm with him. What is this leftover wine you speak of???? That certainly isn't the moron way. I suppose there could be some value of freezing some wine for use later for cooking purposes as this Lifehacker article talks about but still, I never have leftover wine.

Facebook IPO Fallout

So now we know what a lifetime, daily supply of BJs will cost and it does not involve marriage. Evidently Just $2 Million Dollars.

Choe said he was at home in bed when he first realised he'd been outed alongside around 1,000 Facebook employees who will become millionaires after the blockbuster $5 billion flotation.

He said: ‘ I got a text from a woman I hadn’t spoken to in five years and she offered me oral sex every day for the rest of my life for $2 million.'

Speaking of BJs, here's compilation of Seventies Pron BJ Faces.

Kitteh Infection

Don't worry about zombies, worry about your kitteh. Interesting read. Has Your Cat Infected You With A Mind-Controlling Parasite? Probably.

So what exactly is Toxo? It's a parasite which is found in cat poop, and you might know it best because it causes toxoplasmosis. It's what pregnant women aren't supposed to catch, and the reason they're excused from cleaning the litter box. If they do catch it, it can transmit to the baby and result in brain damage and death. It can also infect those with compromised immune systems and cause dementia, but healthy people usually just get a quick flu-like bout with it, and then the Toxo is thought to go dormant and rest in your brain. Except it might not be dormant after all.

Happy Caturday. I think.
