Overnight Open Thread (26 April 2013)

Heh, the squealing begins. FAA furlough reprieve: 'No fair!'.

Disability Scammer

Oh, I think this is just the tip of the iceberg. The alleged disability insurance scammers whose frauds got caught on camera.

Disability fraud is not a terribly hard crime to get away with. You claim you’ve been injured, get a shady doctor to sign off, and then you stick to the fakery. If you say you’ve hurt your back, remain recumbent! Don’t go climbing trees or fixing your roof in public. And certainly do not upload to YouTube a video that shows you half-naked and covered in tinfoil, doing “the robot” to the tune of Steppenwolf’s “Magic Carpet Ride.”

Boston PD K-9 Use

Bob Owens wonders did Boston PD fail to use K-9 units correctly in terrorist hunt? I'm also curious as to how the bombers were able to stroll around for hours with their bombs and not have a bomb sniffin' dog pick up on it at the marathon. I assume they never got close enough to a K-9.

Public Education Decline

This is stupid. Texas follows California in dropping algebra requirement. I guess they expect kids to just rely on apps for figuring out everyday problems that require this type of thinking. Or they just want kids to pay extra for the remedial math courses they'll have to take in college.

Oh, and if you thought the story of the NY middle school forcing students to ask for a gay kiss was bad, Germany would like you to know they can top that. Berlin first graders get explicit sex eduction book. NSFW if you click on the images included in the article (which are sketches instead of photos).

The book, "Where Do You Come From?" ("Wo kommst du her?"), which is recommended for ages 5 and up, shows a couple, Lisa and Lars, in various stages of arousal. In one illustration, Lisa puts a condom on Lars' erect penis. Another shows them having intercourse. The text also veers toward the explicit.


I'm down with giving this "sport" a try. I'll bring the first keg.

All Plastic Gun

The first all-plastic 3D-printed gun will be available to download in 2 weeks. Really hard to get too excited over this since the plastic gun hasn't been shown to last very long.

If all goes to plan, Wilson says the 3D-printed gun — which will be a custom design, rather than a reproduction of an existing pistol — will be able to fire a “few shots” before melting or breaking. After testing, the design will be uploaded to the web, so that anyone with a 3D printer can print out the handgun. You’ll still need to source your own ammunition and firing pin, though.

Dog Tattoo

I'm gonna have to say that tattooing your dog is wrong.
