Overnight Open Thread (14 Jun 2013)

Finally we have one of those national day thingamajigs that I can support. It's National Bourbon Day. And it's also Flag Day. Which means Google ignores it. And Happy Birthday U.S. Army! Google ignores that too.

Allow me to share with you the Flag Presentation Ceremony during retirements. It can be a very moving presentation and the words are touching. Video below the fold.

Drone Peeping Toms

Kinda freaky. Worried About Peeping Flying Drones? I think a shotgun will work pretty good if you find someone hovering a drone with camera outside your window. Or you could go out front and find the guy with the controls and taze the shit out of him. What else can you morons come up with?

In other drone news, apparently The Mafia Tested Killer Drones In The 90's.

According to the ex “mafioso”, he was given the task by one of the Graviano brothers, two Palermo bosses in the 1990s, to buy and flight test rc airplanes carrying explosives.

“Graviano told me to buy a remotely controlled plane. He explained that others had already bought them and we had to test the way to turn them into flying bombs by loading them with explosives,” Spatuzza said.

“I bought it, it cost me more than 1 million [1 million Lira, more or less 500 Euro] and I did some testing. We had to learn how to fly it and then direct them to targets charging them with a small amount of explosives.”

Beer Cocktails

Many on this list I have not had yet. I should probably add this to my bucket list. 10 Great Beer Cocktails. The Black and Tan probably shouldn't be on this list though. I don't see how that is a cocktail.

Cosplay Piano

Game of Thrones this time.

Illegal Immigrants and DUIs

Senators don't care about DUIs committed by illegal immigrants. So Democrats want to take away your guns for a school shooting but never mind about the hundreds of Americans that have been killed by illegal immigrants driving while drunk. Giving them a license won't fix the behavior either. Hey, let's make them citizens and let them vote too.

Electromagnetic Sensitivity

A lot of rubes on this here planet. High Tech World Triggers A Modern Day Syndrome.

if you really want to guard against exposure to phone radiation and various electro-magnetic harms, a company will sell you this special “biofield” protecting pendant (cost ranges from $99.95 to $1199.95).

Made with third-generation Sympathetic Resonance Technology. Hahahaha.

Power Company Control

Speaking of rubes, check this out. Some Question If New Mexico PNM Power Saver Plan Is Worthy. So you get $25 from the power company to install a control gadget on your AC that allows the power company to set your AC temperature. Eff that. 30,000 people signed up for it too.

Honeywell is offering up these bureaucrat-controlled thermostats for other municipalities. Of course, if you choose to opt out, you must pay to do so. In CA, it'll cost you $75 initially plus $10 a month just to opt out.

Israeli Soldiers

Yup. Israeli soldiers are in the news again. This time dancing half nekkid using a rifle as a pole. Of course it is NSFW.
