Overnight Open Thread

Now I've had a few things fall of my aircraft before but nothing like this. The Day A Nuclear Bomb Fell On South Carolina. Lucky, lucky family.

That afternoon sisters Helen and Frances Gregg, aged six and nine, and their nine-year-old cousin Ella Davies were in the playhouse their father had built for them in the woods behind their house in Mars Bluff, South Carolina.

At around four o’clock they decided to move from the playhouse to the side yard 200 yards away. It was a decision that kept them from becoming the first Americans killed by a nuclear weapon released on U.S. territory.

Minutes later the woods behind the playhouse were destroyed by a nuclear bomb.

The high-explosive trigger in the bomb blew up on contact with the ground, leaving a crater 50 feet across and 35 feet deep.


Luckily, the nuclear core had been stored elsewhere on the plane. Of course they sued the Air Force and received a whopping $54K.

Lose the spoiler

Let's face it. Unless they are on race cars, spoilers are stupid. They also force more rubber to contact the road, which hurts your mileage.

Amazon Item

Amazon really does sell anything. Urban Moonshine Chocolate Love Tonic. $35??? I need to start a side business selling stuff like this. Just need some chocolate syrup, tonic, some honey and tadah! Product to sell! It would seem this item is sorely lacking in customer reviews. I'm sure the moron horde can come with a few. Hint, hint!

Boat For Sale

Got $50K? Then The Sea Shadow Can Be Yours. Sounds like a great deal no? Well, the kicker is that you also have to scrap it after you buy it.
