Overnight Open Thread (7 Sep 2013)

Man, if we go forward with a military misadventure into Syria, I think that it would crack the top 10 on this list of worst military decisions in history especially if some of the worse case scenarios develop after the strike. Already, the President is micromanaging the Syrian target list as LBJ did (#2 on the list) in Vietnam.


Vicarious

One of my favorite Tool songs done 300 style.

Lame Excuse

So how long is the President going to run with the "I only hear about things from the media" as it pertains to departments/agencies under his control? At what point is he held responsible? Or anyone in those departments for that matter? Obama learns what the NSA is up to through the press.

An AFP reporter asked Obama to respond to the most recent NSA leaks that officials in Brazil and Mexico were being spied on.

“I said that I would look into the allegations,” Obama said. “I mean, part of the problem here is we get these through the press and then I've got to go back and find out what’s going on with respect to these particular allegations - I don’t subscribe to all these newspapers, although I think the NSA does - now at least.


If Obama has to wait for the press to publish a leak before he'll go and find out what's going on, then he's not doing his job. It's not very Presidential to look like you don't know the extent of one of the most damaging leaks in U.S. history. Of course, it's a pretty stupid statement to make when we all know the press does not publish anything without getting approval from the White House. He is their chosen one.

Sexual Harassment

Poor guy. Probably NSFW.

Drone Humor

Yeah, yeah, it's always fun and games until you scalp yourself with a drone, but here are some humorous things to do with drones.

House Demolition

I figure it is far easier to get away with this in the Detroit area but never underestimate the ability of the government to eff it away. Crews demolish the wrong house in Pontiac because one home owner switched the address numbers with the house next door. In the end, both homes got schwacked.

Parkour

Based on the video game Mirror's Edge.

Gun Mailbox

I'm sure this N.J. man's mailbox will be banned in 3...2...1...

The Bodyguard

Lady Gaga bodyguard tazed to death after naked cocaine rampage.

So the late Norman Oosterbroek, 43, who was a bodyguard for the likes of Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Jay-Z, recently broke into a neighbor’s house in Miami. He was naked and started beating up the homeowner, and when the cops arrived and tazed him, he ended up having a fatal heart attack from the combination of drugs and high voltage.

Supposedly, he was beating up the homeowner with one hand, and feeding himself drugs with the other.
