Overnight Open Thread (31 Aug 2013)

Hmmm, not surprising. The President does not care if Congress gives him approval to strike Syria, he's gonna do it anyway.

A senior State Department official tells Fox News the president’s decision to take military action in Syria still stands, and will indeed be carried out, regardless of whether Congress votes next week to approve the use of such force.

The official said that every major player on the National Security Council – including the commander-in-chief – was in accord last night on the need for military action, and that the president’s decision to seek a congressional debate and vote was a surprise to most if not all of them. However, the aide insisted the request for Congress to vote did not supplant the president’s earlier decision to use force in Syria, only delayed its implementation.


Krauthammer is right. Amateur hour indeed.


Operation Ice Bridge

The most stunning views of the polar region you'll ever get: NASA Ice Bridge 2013. Damn that flying looks fun. A bit chilly. And what's up with all the ice in the video? I thought that shit melted or something.

If Only

Administrative error sends Bradley Manning to death row, Nidal Hasan to gender reassignment surgery. Oh man, I needed a laugh.

After sentencing concluded last Wednesday in Fort Hood, Texas, it was reported Hasan would undergo gender reassignment surgery and change his name from Nidal to Nahid Hasan. Nahid is an Arabic name meaning “one with full, round breasts.”

Not long after it was revealed, the traitor formerly known as Chelsea had been transferred to death row where he awaits execution by lethal injection.

Leavenworth officials announced that both gender reassignment and execution have been approved by fiscal offices. Due to end of fiscal year funding constraints, changing these allocations will be too costly in the final quarter.

Coffin Recommendation

For those thinking of a coffin as a vessel for their physical body after your soul has departed, might I recommend The Bacon Coffin. Oh, by the way, today is International Bacon Day.

Advanced Super Hornet

Advanced Super Hornet makes debut. Well, the way the F-35 is going, we're gonna need something to put in the air. In the end, it may not matter though if the Russian T-50 can outfly, outshoot American jets.

Messy Food Eating Etiquette

Man I didn't know there was a right way to eat buffalo hot wings. I just tear into them like a piranha. 10 messy foods you're eating the wrong way.

Yes, you can eat these gracefully, sauce and all, says Sandy Muskopf Hyde, president of the Etiquette School of Ohio and a native of Buffalo, NY, birthplace of the famous wings. To minimize mess, go for drumsticks: Hold the ends with the thumb and index finger (or first two fingers) of both hands, and eat the drumstick clean. The two-boned, flat chicken wing is a different story, she says. Pick the wing up by the ends with the thumb and index finger (or first two fingers) of both hands. Locate the end with the larger bone sticking out. Use your fingers to pull the cartilage off from this end and discard it. Locate the smaller bone, twist it loose with your fingers and pull it from the wing. Do the same with the larger bone. "You may now eat your boneless chicken wing," Muskopf Hyde says.

Non-Alcoholic Beer Challenge

Dumbass wonders if drinking 28 non-alcoholic beers in an hour will make him drunk? Actually, he figured 30 would make him legally drunk at .08. He could only handle 28 in an hour. No small feat and he paid for it as he promptly ralphed it up. In the end, he ended up blowing a .02.
