Overnight Open Thread (19 April 2013)

Thank God this week is over and they got the bastards. Of course, the President does his victory lap. Say, whatever happened with finding those that murdered 4 Americans in Benghazi? Bueller? Anyone? I guess the Overseas Contingency Operations are no longer overseas. Is that winning?

Interesting point on self defense.

Pete Zaitcev makes an interesting observation in this comment …

“And historically in my previous country martial arts were heavily regulated, their teaching prohibited to anyone but security and police officers.”

Why do I find that interesting? Because the deadliest open hand fighting techniques were originally developed by the common folk when emperors and kings banned owning and carrying regular weapons!

But it wasn’t just open hand martial arts that were invented to provide self defense. Common everyday tools were also taken up to provide a means of protection.

So once guns are banned, I assume martial arts (more people are killed with fists than with the evil, black rifle) and common tools will be next. And pressure cookers.

The First SAT

This is pretty cool. What was on the first SAT?

Rex Ryan & The NFL

Ah, poor Rex Ryan. Bitchin' about MLB and the O's forcing the Ravens to play in Denver for their opener vice playing at home. Well guess what Rex, if it's that important for the Super Bowl winner to have their opener at home, perhaps they should've moved the game to another day when the O's weren't playing. The friggin' NFL moved the Giants home opener to a Wednesday to accommodate a friggin' politician last year and that didn't even have anything to do with the game site! BTW, why are you even bitchin' about something relating to the Ravens? You are the Jets coach right?

More Hollywood Remakes

Example 4,237 that Hollywood is out of original ideas. Weird Science remake in the works. Well, if they're gonna make it, who should play the Kelly LeBrock role?

Jump Ropin'

She's got some moves.


Of course. The latest female beauty craze for women is tittooing. Nipple tattooing sweeps UK as women strive for 'perfect boobs'.

Nipple tattooing, or ‘tittooing’ as it is nicknamed, is a process which originated as a medical procedure for breast reconstruction. Now, it serves as a cosmetic procedure for women to darken, enlarge and define their nipples and the surrounding areola. The semi-permanent treatment gives them their 'perfect nipples' and can last a life-time with regular top-ups.

Frisky has got images of what they're talking about it. NSFW.

Diet Lawsuit

You know, there used to be this concept called personal responsibility. Not in today's age. There is always someone else to blame. Rachael Ray Show sued for humiliation, 'negligent' conduct.

Pagliarolo, who was 18 years old and weighed 260 lbs. at the time of the filming, initially approached the show with the goal of losing 70 pounds by her senior prom. She spoke on the show about how she had endured bullying because of her weight, and hoped that Ray could help turn her life around.

Dog Video

Meanwhile, at the White House....

And because it has been a very bad week, a bonus puppy video.
