Overnight Open Thread

Well, it is official. As of 10:49 EST, summer ended and fall began. That's all I got for tonight.

I keed, I keed!

Operation Moolah

Interesting read. Operation Moolah - The Plot To Buy A MiG-15. While we didn't get a MiG-15 that could be directly tied to the cash offer, this plan may have paid some dividends in another way.

The Reds grounded their air force for eight days. It might have been weather, or it might have been time needed to weed out the pilots who were liable to defect. Whatever the reason for the halt, there is no doubt that with the return of the MiGs, a new breed of pilot was behind the stick. The United States In Korea 1950-1953 says, "They were willing to engage in combat, but they had far more enthusiasm than ability." These were the most aggressive, and by their record, the worst flyers of the entire war. In the ninety days following the Moolah broadcasts, The Allied air forces destroyed 165 MiGs at a cost of just three friendly aircraft. Young politically correct pilots flying MiG-15s attacked repeatedly only to fall in flames before the thundering guns of American F-86 Sabre Jets. A fantastic ratio of 55:1 in favor of the Fighter aircraft of the United Nations.

In other aviation news, this is pretty cool to see. The F-35 And F-22 Fly Together For The First Time.

Meat Prices To Rise

Stock up on meat when you see a sale. Massive Worldwide Slaughter Of Farm Animals Set To Push Food Prices Up 14 Percent. Heck, stock up on everything. Food, guns, ammo. Rough times ahead.

Best Man Cities

A strange list at times, but according to Maxim Magazine, these are The Best Man Cities In America.

Best City to Get Strapped
Charlotte, NC
Feeling like you haven’t taken full advantage of your constitutional right to bear arms? Drop by Charlotte’s Hyatt Guns, the largest independently owned gun store in America, with over 7,000 firearms to choose from. We’re saving up for the Barrett 95 .50 BMG bolt action bull-pup rifle with five-round detachable box magazine and optional Leupold Mark 4 4.5-14x50 matte black mil-dot scope. Perfect for squirrel hunting!

Somewhat related, here's an epic rap battle of manliness.

Chicken Bondage

Oh, that poor widdle chicken. '50 Shades Of Chicken' Cookbook To Heat Up Kitchens Soon.

the book which describes itself on the cover as "a parody in a cookbook" will have recipes like Mustard Spanked Chicken, Dripping Thighs and Holy Hell Wings.

The writer, who remains anonymous, writes under the clever pen name EL Fowler.

“It evoked something I’d never been able to express. Then one day as I was tying up the ankles of a chicken for roasting, I realized why some of the scenes in the book were so strikingly familiar. It turns out I’ve been practicing BDSM for years – but with poultry,” Fowler wrote to People in an email.

Seriously, which one of you morons wrote this?
