Overnight Open Thread

Silver Star for the outstanding job Tech. Sgt. Tavis Delaney did in Afghanistan.

“They owned the high ground,” Delaney told Air Force Times last year. “They had fire superiority. They had hundreds of people. And we killed almost all of them and didn’t lose a single American in seven hours of battle. It was seven hours of full-blown, slugfest, back-and-forth, rounds-smacking-right-over-your-head battle.”

The Taliban had been waiting to attack, but the constant onslaught of air power called in by Delaney and McCaffrey pushed them back and protected the Americans and Afghans. Air assets used were F-16s, F-15Es, AC-130s, two Navy F/A-18s, AH-64 Apaches and OH-58 Kiowas, with the help of an MC-12 Liberty surveillance plane to coordinate the battle.

“It was one of the most awesome, awe-inspiring and intimidating sights I’ve ever seen,” Delaney said of watching the special operations AC-130s track down the rest of the Taliban.

Ah, the importance of air power. Final score: 270-0. Which makes this article, America's Aging Aviation Force a bit disturbing. Over time, we won't have this robust air power we enjoy now. Oh and China Is Catching Up Sooner Than Expected.

New Uzi Machine Gun

This is Not Your Father's Uzi. I remember growing up, the Uzi and the MAC-10 were the cool guns. Then the MP-5 came along and I forgot all about the Uzi. Good to see a new iteration of it.

Movie Credit Scenes

While I agree with some of these (especially Dr. No) Top 10 Best Movie Credit Sequences, I must admit that the opening credits to Top Gun deserve mention. What other movies deserve mention?

Electric Harp Duet

Naughty Sounding Science Words

Heh. Naughty-Sounding Words From Science.

Mastication-Induced Arousal. Say that five times fast, just don't do it around your mother. However, if you choose to do so, just make sure that you hastily explain that the term actually is used to describe the beneficial cognitive effects of chewing.

Ouch! Man Loses His Penis To Flesh-Eating Bacteria. I assume he'll try a prosthetic next.

Related: I'm not sure this is something you want to use down there either. Whiskey Dick Lube.

Whiskey Dick is here to help you rise to the occasion. Aged 4 years in hard oak casks and promising a velvety smooth finish, this is truly the gold standard of booze-flavored lubricants.
