Overnight Open Thread

Well, happy Friday morons. It's been a long, long week but the weekend is here now so kick back, git yer drink and pop right on in to the ONT.

This is kinda sad but not unexpected knowing the budget constraints the DoD is starting to feel. I grew up going to air shows so this will be a bummer as our next crop of youngins will have a tougher time getting to see our Nations finest aircraft in action. Air Force Scaling Back Air Show Demos.

The Air Force announced that it’s scaling back its participation in dozens of air shows in 2012, in an effort to cut costs and put money into combat operations. But officials at Hill Air Force Base said the upcoming show won’t look much different than it has in years past.

Officials at Air Combat Command eliminated the solo performances of five of its crews based in Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Utah.

Eliminating solo performances by the A-10, the F-16 and F-15E, is expected to save the Air Force $15.5 million and allow about 970 training flights that otherwise would have been canceled.

Meanwhile, The Prez Blows $52M On Investigating Oil Speculation. I think I'd rather have the airshow demo teams and pocket the remaining $35M instead of this investigation to no where.

Workmans Comp-Down Under

Worker Injured During Sex Gets Compensation Payout. What? I guess if you are doing lawful acts and are on your companies dime and you get injured, you can collect.

The Judge ruled that “if the applicant had been injured while playing a game of cards in her motel room she would be entitled to compensation” and the fact that the woman was engaged in sexual activity rather than some other lawful recreational activity while in her hotel room does not lead to any different result.

The woman, who cannot be named, challenged the rejection of her workers' compensation claim for facial and psychological injuries suffered when a glass light fitting came away from the wall above the bed as she was having sex in November 2007.

"You could see the spider just chewing into it and the part which the spider was eating had gone all black and the insides were bubbling," he said.

U.S. Measles Cases At 15 Year High In 2011. And no mention of why perhaps there are so many victims that were not vaccinated. Perhaps because they the media had a role in so many buying into that phony doctors theory.

Health official say outbreaks in the U.S. have been fueled by low vaccination rates in Europe and elsewhere. In 2011, Europe reported more than 26,000 measles cases and nine deaths -- three times the amount of cases seen in 2007 according to the World Health Organization, HealthPop reported.

There were no deaths in the U.S. but about a third of the people were hospitalized. At least two-thirds of the Americans who got the measles hadn't been vaccinated.

A study conducted in 2011 and published in Pediatrics showed that more than 10 percent of parents reject recommended vaccines for their children, according to HealthPop.

Second Look At Soccer?

Maybe. European Study Says Soccer Is Like Sex For Fans. Really? I think I'd rather have the real deal instead of soccer.

Soccer fans get as excited watching a big game as they do during a night of passionate love-making, European researchers claimed.

Scientists from the Netherlands and Spain studied the hormone levels of Spanish fans during a match and found that levels of the sex hormone testosterone soared in male and female soccer fans regardless of their team's success.

The Future Of Sex

Robot Prostitutes 'The Future Of Sex Tourism'. $12K???? For a robot??? Good thing they didn't have these in Cartagena. I wonder if a T-800 Terminator/Pimp model would then be sent in to collect from deadbeat Secret Service agents?

Sexual tourists will pay about 10,000 Euro ($12,672) for an all-inclusive service from massages and lap dances to intercourse from the scantily-clad sexbots parading around.

The androids would be made of bacteria resistant fibre and would be flushed for human fluids, therefore guaranteeing no STIs are transferred between consumers.

Clients could feel guilt free as they actually have not had sex with a real person and would not have to lie to their partner.

Somehow, I don't think the I only had sex with a robot excuse is going to work on your spouse.
