Overnight Open Thread (26 Oct 2012)

What up morons? Hurricane Sandy really messed up my day and probably my weekend as the Fleet is in the process of hitting the seas to avoid whatever Sandy has in store for the area. Hope all you morons that are in the path are prepared for the worst i.e. you got your medicinal booze in appropriate amounts.

Latest on Hurricane Sandy.

Are Lap Dances Art?

New York's highest court weighs in. Bump And Grind Not So Fine Art. I don't know. I've seen some pretty mesmerizing performances that I would say were pretty "dramatic". Well, that was a long time ago. Actually, that's what a friend told me.


Lap dances are taxable because they don't promote culture in a community the way ballet or other artistic endeavors do, New York's highest court concluded Tuesday in a sharply divided ruling.

The court split 4-3, with the dissenting judges saying there's no distinction in state law between "highbrow dance and lowbrow dance," so the case raises "significant constitutional problems."

The lawsuit was filed by Nite Moves in suburban Albany, which was arguing fees for admission to the strip club and for private dances are exempt from sales taxes.

The court majority said taxes apply to many entertainment venues, such as amusement parks and sporting events. It ruled the club has failed to prove it qualifies for the exemption for "dramatic or musical arts performances" that was adopted by the Legislature "with the evident purpose of promoting cultural and artistic performances in local communities."

Ugly Divorce

This is just wrong but opens the door for so many things you can try to get a divorce and settlement for. Man Sues And Divorces Wife For Being Ugly, Wins.

The northern Chinese man, Jian Feng, married his wife and was reportedly absolutely in love with her. Soon, as will happen, she became pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl, which was when the problems arose for Feng.

He thought the baby was incredibly ugly, to the point where it horrified him. The baby resembled neither of her parents, so Feng demanded to know who the father was, because jumping to conclusions about your wifeís faithfulness is the obvious thing to do when you have an ugly baby.

As it turns out, his wife didnít cheat, but did gloss over the fact that she had spent $100,000 on intense plastic surgery to severely change how she looked before she met him. Itís the kind of thing that can slip your mind on the first date. After his wife revealed this to him, Feng took the only right-minded course of action and divorced and sued her, claiming that she got him to marry her under false pretences. The false pretence presumably being that she was good looking. Incredibly, the (presumably male) judge sympathised with Feng and he won $120,000 in the case.
