Overnight Open Thread (11 Aug 2013)

Evenin' morons. I'm fillin' in for Maet as he takes care of personal matters. As he is the holder of the top ten lists, you'll have to wait for his return to see how much time you spend on the blog (or the barrel).

For those of you who can't bear the thought of putting on pants and going outside to watch the Perseid Meteor shower, NASA is live broadcasting it here. (I just checked it and it looks cloudy. Way to go NASA.)

Tank Biathlon

OK, last night we saw that pole dancing is close to becoming an Olympic sport. How about adding tank biathlon? Oh yeah, it's on. No way the Russkies kick our ass.

The newspaper offered a preview of the new sport, covering a test competition held outside Moscow earlier this week. The event involved four tanks painted in bright colors – including yellow and pinkish red – which did three laps over rough terrain, shooting at targets shaped like tanks, houses and helicopters. The best time was 5:28.

Bear Situation

So what do you do when you find a bear in your kitchen chowin' down on some dirty plates and your wife is asleep on the couch? Oh and she is very, very scared of spiders. What do you DO?!

Edwards said his first thought was to get his wife away from the kitchen area. However, he said, “I couldn’t tell her there was a bear in the house because she would have just lost her mind. She gets very upset over spiders.”

Beer Stashing

Looks like people are stashing beer along the highway while biking.

Face Folding

The 300 scene had me rollin'.
