Overnight Open Thread (28 Sep 2013)

Well, according to whoever is in charge of the National (Insert Word) Day thingy, today is National Drink Beer Day. I'm pretty sure that's like every day for us morons. So drink up. Here are some more pics from Oktoberfest 2013.


Guns Of The World

What the military issue rifle is in each country. Piers Morgan can't figure out why he does not see an AR-15 on the map.

Costume Season

A little video to get you ready for Halloween.

Shishmaref, AK

Yesterday, CNN talked about the sinking village at Shishmaref, AK due to man caused climate change. Their so-called expert evidently does not realize that Shishmaref is a barrier island and is not familiar with what happens to barrier islands naturally. Nor is their expert familiar with NOAA's assessment of Shishmaref's problems.

Erosion at Shishmaref is somewhat unique along the islands because of its fetch exposure and high tidal prism, relatively intense infrastructure development during the 20th century, and because of multiple shoreline defense structures emplaced since the 1970s.

Erosion rates along the island front exceed (and are not comparable with) those along adjacent sectors. Erosion is occurring along the entire island chain, but it is exacerbated at Sarichef Island [where Shishmaref is located] in part because of the hydrographic impacts of hard armoring of a sandy shoreface and permafrost degradation that is accelerated by infrastructure.


Ironically, the plight of the Inupiat Eskimo community on Shishmaref is man made. It was the Bureau Of Indian Affairs that moved them to the island instead of them just using it during the summer for hunting and fishing. It was never a permanent settlement.

Obama Hoops Video

OK, not really Obama but I'm pretty sure it would look like this.

Barilla Pasta

I'm getting mighty tired of being told what I am supposed to be tolerant of. Our own Political Hat weighs in. Barilla: A paragon of tolerance.

Everything Is Offensive

Some people have nothing better to do than complain. Take this story for example. Concrete posts shaped like male genitalia the talk of Scott Township. I hope the guy that was offended never sees this list of other objects that may offend him.

Mercury Spill

I think I would've cleaned up a broken mercury thermometer myself instead of forking over $4K to have the city/state clean it up. Hope this lady does not have any CFL bulbs.

New Beer

Hello Kitty Fruit Beer. Only 2.5% alcohol content though.

In Russia...

In Russia, cameras capture eagle killing deer.
