Saturday Night ONT

What’s up suckaz! Looks like you are stuck with me tonight.

Let’s see, where should we start? *digs into bag of content*

Can You Guess What Happened Next?

As You May Have Heard, The NHL Season Started Today
After 113 days of lockout, the NHL and NHLPA came to an agreement last week. Our very own DrewM has started up a hockey blog appropriately named Just Another Hockey Blog.

Drew made his predictions for this season here. I made my predictions for this season here. Please check the blog out from time to time.

For those of you that don't understand the rules of hockey, the Peter Puck videos are a good place to start.

You can find the other episodes at these links epiode 2, episode 3, and episode 4.

Explorer’s Rare Scotch Returned To The Antarctic

Talk about whisky on ice: Three bottles of rare, 19th century Scotch found beneath the floor boards of Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackelton's abandoned expedition base were returned to the polar continent Saturday after a distiller flew them to Scotland to recreate the long-lost recipe…..Bottled in 1898 after the blend was aged 15 years, the Mackinlay bottles were among three crates of Scotch and two of brandy buried beneath a basic hut Shackleton had used during his dramatic 1907 Nimrod excursion to the Antarctic. The expedition failed to reach the South Pole but set a record at the time for reaching the farthest southern latitude. Shackelton was knighted after his return to Great Britain.
I remember reading about them finding the scotch some time ago. I didn’t realize they were going to take it back to the Antarctic after analyzing it. That seems like an awful waste 100+ year old scotch. If you want to read more about the sensory analysis of the scotch, you can do so here.

Dick Morris Has A New Book And It Sounds Awful
Jesse Walker of Reason isn’t optimistic.

These days Morris and McGann churn out a book or two a year, most of them disposable tracts that affect a populist pose. They're aimed at an audience of angry Americans who feel screwed and fleeced and ready to revolt—hence the books' titles, such as Screwed! and Fleeced and Revolt! The duo's efforts bear roughly the same relationship to dissent that an ambulance-chasing attorney has to medicine.

It isn't clear who exactly buys the books. Morris is best known these days for that sex scandal and for a long series of wildly inaccurate political predictions. (He and McGann also wrote a book called Condi vs. Hillary: The Next Great Presidential Race. It appeared in 2005.) How do you transform that into an aura of expertise? Morris' ideal reader must be someone who vaguely remembers seeing him on TV but doesn't recall why.

Increase Your Vocabulary With These 50 Collective Nouns
Some of my favorites. See the rest at the above link.

1. Business of Ferrets
33. Parliament of Owls
43. An Impatience of Wives
47. A Neverthriving of Jugglers

The Time Bomb Within Obamacare
I'll have what George Will is drinking. I wish I could agree with him, but the left worked too hard to get this passed. They aren't going to lets laws or "the market" get in their way.

I can't really excerpt the article. You have to read the whole thing for context. It's short and worth the minute it takes to read.

The Debt Crisis

Debt is just a way to leverage growth. Businesses use debt all the time. They also use cash, and equity. Debt is just an arrow in a quiver to stimulate growth. In times of war, the US would not have survived if not for the use of debt. The Revolutionary War would not have been fought had the US not persuaded countries to purchase debt obligations. World War Two saw a massive increase in debt/GDP ratios, but we were fighting for our survival as a country.

Archer Is Back!
Kreiger is my favorite character. I hope he plays a prominent role this year.

Monty was talking about Beethoven's 9th Symphony last night and I realized that I'd never listened to it the whole way through. Now seems as good a time as any, wouldn't you agree?
