Overnight Open Thread (20 Sep 2013)

Yes, California is screwed. I don't think Republican's can ever win again when you hear this type of stuff. Students at USC: Obama's Nobel Peace Prize Totally Deserved, But Can't Explain Why.

Another student said she supported everything that he was doing. His very existence was creating peace, she said.

“I just feel like in general being a good guy, it’s just creating a lot more peace and like, mellow,” she said. “The fact that he is for the people creates peace in and of itself.”

When asked how she could support Obama’s Syrian policies but oppose Bush’s Iraq policies, she justified the contradiction by stating, “Bush, I just didn’t like him.”


I don't know how you defeat weapons grade stupid like that.


Medical Mistake Deaths

Just wait until Obamacare is fully operational. How Many Die From Medical Mistakes In U.S. Hospitals?

In 2010, the Office of Inspector General for Health and Human Services said that bad hospital care contributed to the deaths of 180,000 patients in Medicare alone in a given year.

Now comes a study in the current issue of the Journal of Patient Safety that says the numbers may be much higher — between 210,000 and 440,000 patients each year who go to the hospital for care suffer some type of preventable harm that contributes to their death, the study says.

That would make medical errors the third-leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease, which is the first, and cancer, which is second.


Death by AR-15's is way, way down the list but gets all the attention. Go figure.

Food Expiration Dates

So do you guys ever live on the dangerous side and eat or drink something beyond its sell by date? I usually employ the sniff and sight check on those things and if there is any doubt, I chuck it. Evidently, 40 Percent Of Our Food Gets Trashed Just Based On Those Dates. Most people don't realize that these dates indicate their peak freshness not when they are no longer safe to eat.

Bacon Attack

Damn Scotland. Edinburgh Man Jailed After Attacking Mosque Weilding Bacon. 10 months for breach of peace?

Bacon may hardly qualify as a lethal object, but cured pig carcass was the weapon of choice for Wayne Stillwell, who was sentenced to 10 months in jail after hurling bacon into the Central Mosque in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Stillwell, 25, wrapped the door handles with the meat product and then threw it through the doors and onto the ground because, in his words, “Muslims regard bacon as unclean."

Fart Science

Has this been peer reviewed yet? Alien Farts Might Be Key To Discovering Life On Other Planets. Well this idea goes to shit if aliens fart other types of gases.

Booze News

Good news. Booze doesn't cause depression. I'm sure big booze was behind this report.

Name Issues

And I thought the parents that named their kid ESPN were bad. French Court Fines Mother For Naming Her Kid Jihad, But Mostly For Sending The Three Year Old To School With A T-Shirt That Says 'Jihad, Born Sept. 11th, I Am A Bomb'.

Dog Video

A salute to military working dogs.
