Overnight Open Thread

So, the President not too long ago said this While On The Ground In Afghanistan.

But over the last three years, the tide has turned. We broke the Taliban’s momentum. We’ve built strong Afghan Security Forces. We devastated al Qaeda’s leadership, taking out over 20 of their top 30 leaders. And one year ago, from a base here in Afghanistan, our troops launched the operation that killed Osama bin Laden. The goal that I set – to defeat al Qaeda, and deny it a chance to rebuild – is within reach.

This was only 5 months ago. Let's see how it looks right now. The Taliban has NOT been broken. They destroyed 6 USMC jets in their attack on Camp Bastion Which Was Our Worst Air Loss Since Vietnam. And what of those "strong" Afghan Security forces? Why they're only killing Coalition Troops instead of the Taliban. And the goal of defeating al Queda and denying it a chance to rebuild? Total Failure.
The murder of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans in Libya on September 11 has created a growing political backlash in the United States, but there are three other reasons that this attack is significant. First, an al Qaeda unit successfully assaulted American soil for the first time since 9/11. Second, we were -- once again -- caught by surprise, and third, the attacks show that al Qaeda is not just alive and kicking (as I mentioned in my previous post), but that our current strategy for dealing with the group is failing.

What's sad is that journalists have dug deeper on stories like the Haditha Massacre, troops peeing on dead bodies, etc. than they have regarding al Queda's resurgance and murder of an American ambassador. Of course, this might have something to do with it. Intelligence Officials Angered By Obama Administration Coverup Of Intelligence.
The president said during his nomination acceptance speech that “al Qaeda is on the path to defeat,” an assertion contradicted by the group’s rise in the region.

The administration, in particular, wants to keep hidden solid intelligence showing that the terrorist group behind the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans is now flourishing under the Muslim Brotherhood regime of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.


Ballsiest Beer

No really. Wynkoop To Release Ballsiest Beer Ever. So any takers on trying this brew?

So how does it taste? Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout is an assertive foreign-style stout, slightly viscous, with a deep brown color. It has equally deep flavors of chocolate syrup, Kahlua, and espresso, along with a palpable level of alcohol and a savory umami-like note.It finishes dry and roasted with a fast-fading hop bite.

The beer is 7% ABV and has 3 BPBs. That’s balls per barrel.

US Marines

Oh yeah.

Fapping Bar

Of course it's in Japan. Female Masturbation Bar Opens In Japan.

The wall behind the bar is stocked with dozens of colorful sex toys, and female patrons are encouraged to speak openly about an often-taboo subject - pleasuring themselves, according to the Tokyo Reporter.

“I go because it is a safe place and I don’t have to worry about trying to brush off men all the time," a customer going by the name Sayama told the blog Bikyamasr.com. "Add in that it is also a great place to drink and talk about what we women love to talk about, sex and guys, that’s also a big pull."

If that's not your thang, you could always check out The Japanese 'Cuddle With A Pretty Girl' Cafe'. The cost for all this spoonin'?

Penis Size Study

Don't worry, it hasn't been "peer reviewed" yet by Dr. Peter Venkman. Penis Size Study In 113 Countries Shows Who Comes Out On Top. Sounds like this study is about as scientific as global warming research. It's all based off of one website.

The United States came in at 5 inches; Australia came in at 5.2 inches. At the top of the list were the Congo, whose men boasted an average of 7.1 inches. Closely following them were Ecuadorians at 7.0 inches, Ghanaians at 6.8 inches;and Colombians at 6.7 inches.

In Europe, Italians were at the top of the list, with 6.2 inches. Next was Greece, at 5.8 inches and Germany at 5.7 inches. Britons measured in at 5.5 inches, beating out the French, who measured 5.3 inches. Rounding out the list were North and South Korea, who both measure, on average, 3.8 inches.

It would seem that the Daily Mail thinks they have photographic proof of Carrie Fisher's Coke Addiction During The Return Of The Jedi. Actually, shouldn't a coke nail be on the pinky finger? A long index finger nail is a nose picker right?
