Overnight Open Thread

Who says crime doesn't pay? Especially if you are a public servant in New Jersey. Here's How You Do It.

Antoinette Galluzzo embezzled $50,000 in funds earmarked for a kids summer camp. The city fired her, so she cashed in her public employee pension. Then she went on unemployment.

But the best part? Superior Court Judge Eugene Austin ruled that she doesn't have to go to jail, but yes, she has to pay back the $50,000. Well some of it anyway. At $10 per month. Only for the three years of her probation though. After that, if the kids who got screwed want to recoup the remaining money they'll have to sue her in civil court.

Positive Effects Of Alcohol

I'm adding this to my kitchen to further my research.

Ah yes, research that you can drink to. First up, Red Wine Helps Weight Loss.

Scientists have revealed a compound found in red wine can help control obesity.

The substance, called piceatannol, delays the generation of young fat cells and prevents them from growing into mature fat cells.

The compound blocks insulin's ability to activate genes that carry out further stages of fat cell formation.

The heart-healthy agent found in the grape-based beverage is also thought to protect the body from heart and neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.

I have found over the years that this is true as well. Alochol Sharpens The Mind.

It is thought alcohol hinders analytical thinking and allows 'creative' thoughts that might otherwise by stifled to take root, allowing test subjects to come up with more imaginative solutions.

Half the group drank the equivalent of two pints of beer before doing the tests, while the rest carried them out sober.

The drinking group solved nearly 40 per cent more problems than the others, and took an average of 12 seconds compared to the 15.5 seconds needed by sober subjects.

In Living Color

On April 22nd, Fox is doing a special In Living Color reunion. This show was great when it was on back in the early 90's. Hopefully they'll bring the funneh like they did here in The 15 Best In Living Color Skits. Perhaps they could do The Reverend Wright and Barack Obama Comedy Hour skit?

I told you the UK was gonna end up with Spitfires as their new Air Force. Twenty Spitfires Buried In Burma During WWII To Be Returned To The UK. Ok, I keed but damn that would be sweet to get your hands on one. Evidently they were well preserved.

Obligatory Caturday Stuff

Mean monkey vs a kitteh.

It would seem Caturday might've started way back in the 1870s. Even Then, Humans Were Obsessed With Ridiculous Photos Of Cats.

Kitteh really, really likes this Pixar bird movie.

Anti-Pirate Pron

Pirates Decimated By Shipboard Security Team. Wish the video was better. And it would've been nice if the security team had maybe a Mk 38 Mod 2 25mm machine gun or a GAU-17/A Minigun or even a Mk 19 Grenade Launcher.

Speaking of guns. Do a double take when you see an adult with a water gun. It Could Be A Shotgun Disguised As A Water Gun. I'm sure some politician will now call for a ban on super soakers.
