Overnight Open Thread (25 Jan 2014)

So the President is pushing college education, but is it really required for the jobs that you are most likely to get? Especially in a tanking economy where there is a growth of college grads in dead-end jobs. Is it worth 6 figure debt when you could do this? But if you do go for a degree, perhaps it should be oil and gas related.


Shopping Cart Danger

So when are we going to ban shopping carts? Shopping carts send on average 66 kids to the ER a day.

In other news, some soft drinks cause cancer. Of course, you'd have to drink thousands of cokes a day to attain the dangerous levels that the lab animals were subjected to but hey, science or something.

Bra App

There really is an app for everything. The world's most high tech bra that only unhooks when it detects true love, or when I wear my summer whites.

In other product news, there is now an alarm clock vibrator.

Homeowner Tip

Pro tip for all y'all homeowner's out there. If you get TP'ed, don't use fire to clean it up. Jeez. These folks give morons a bad name I tell ya.

Taylor Davis

Dayum. She's pretty good.

Earthquake Danger

Perhaps while we wait for SMOD to arrive, maybe a large earthquake will strike instead?

“Based on our statistical analysis, the hypothesis that current seismicity in the New Madrid region is primarily composed of aftershocks from the 1811-1812 sequence fails,” Page and Hough write.

If the ongoing seismicity in the region were composed of aftershocks, those quakes would be relieving strain and reducing the earthquake hazard. Instead, this new research indicates, strain is continuing to accumulate in the New Madrid Seismic Zone, and the earthquake hazard remains high.

Homeland Security

We really, really need to do away with Homeland Security. Investigating movie piracy? Really? So the MPAA can just ring up Homeland Security and get a guy arrested in the middle of a movie that quickly? We need to do away with Hollywood tax breaks too.
