Overnight Open Thread

Evenin' morons. I'm a bit under the weather but as they say the show must go on. If the ONT sucks, who cares. Evidently, I Didn't Build It Anyway. So I guess all complaints should be sent to the White House.

Last year Washington state voters approved the privatization of liquor sales so they could finally buy the good stuff at the grocery store. Well, the state of Washington in its infinite wisdom added an additional 10 percent distributor fee and 17 percent retail fee to replace money the state lost when it shut down its state-run liquor stores. Gee, I wonder what happens next. Ta da! Washington's Newly Privatized Liquor Stores Sending Business To Oregon.

Oh, evidently Think Progress is calling for a boycott Of These Companies. Guess I know which businesses to give my money to!

Real Fireworks

OK, I don't care what you did on the 4th of July, but whatever fireworks show you watched pales in comparison to this one. 5 Volunteers Stand Under An Atom Bomb As It Detonates. Volunteers my ass. Probably more like voluntold. I wonder if they put it on their FITREPs (Fitness Reports for you non military types).

iPhone Skin Cancer Screening

Um, I'm pretty sure this will get some folks into trouble. Are You Ready To Trust An iPhone App For Skin Cancer Diagnosis? You only have to take 23 different pictures of yourself. Nekkid.

Driving A Stick

So how many of you morons know how to drive a stick? My parents made me learn how to drive a stick first before driving with an automatic and I'm glad they did, especially when I've been stationed overseas where practically everything was manual. Is Knowing How To Drive Stick In America Still Essential? I'd say yes. When the shit hits the fan and you need a bug out vehicle, it would help that you know how to drive any type vehicle that's available. Plus, it's more fuel efficient if you know what you're doing.

Guess The Celeb

Here's The Answer And More.
