Overnight Open Thread (13 April 2013)

Well my old laptop finally kicked the bucket today. I had to swap to my old desktop which of course didn't have all my links so I've patched something together as best I can. I guess all that Windows 8 discussion last night just might help guide my laptop purchase direction.

Well, we had a CME impact the Earth earlier tonight. Some aurora possibilities for you high latitude types.

State of the Union

In other news, English teacher ask students for essay on "why Jews are evil". On a positive note, at least 1/3 of the class refused to do the assignment. I'm sure they'll be tagged for more reeducation in follow-on classes so they won't question authority again.

The woman drove away after hitting the man’s car at Haight and Cole streets at 5 p.m. Tuesday, said Park Station Officer Al Wu. The man couldn’t tell officers what kind of car it was, let alone supply a license-plate number, but he “was able to give a detailed description of the suspect’s cleavage,” police said.

So did they put out an APB for the breasts?

In related news, NYC has the co-ed topless pulp fiction appreciation society. Evidently they love to read outdoors and topless. NSFW (and a HuffPo link).

This explains Obama's budget BS. Left-handed people avoid using exact numbers.
