Overnight Open Thread (4 Apr 2014)

So, it looks like Al Gore may want to make a sequel to An Inconvenient Truth. Sorry Al, that dog don't hunt.

Laurie David believes "everything in that movie has come to pass". Really? Was there an increase in destructive tornadic activity? We're in our third straight year of record low activity. Increase in hurricanes? Nope. Obama has the lowest hurricane frequency of any President. North Pole will be ice free? Nah, multi-year ice is growing. What exactly did come to pass then from that movie?


Kelo v. City of New London

Remember the Kelo v. City of New London Supreme Court case? It seems it all may have been for naught as the 90-acre plot once earmarked for office buildings, luxury apartments and a new marina, remains vacant.

So how does New London, specifically Fort Trumbull, look now?

“The homeowners were dispossessed for nothing,” wrote The Boston Globe’s Jeff Jacoby. “Fort Trumbull was never redeveloped. Pfizer itself bailed out of New London in 2009. The Kelo decision was a disaster, as even the city’s present political leaders acknowledge.”

Military Inventions

11 incredible products that were really invented by the U.S. military.

It turns out that you were right all along when you called it "duck" tape. Soldiers in World War II first using the new adhesive called it a variety of names, one of them being an homage to the small water fowl. Johnson & Johnson had created a tape for infantrymen that could seal their ammunition cases in any weather and be ripped from the adhesive with their bare hands.

After the war, the tape got its grey coloring (it was a camo-esque green pattern before, go figure) and made its way into hardware stores. Eventually it became known as a good wrap for air ducts, kicking off its new name and decades of confusion about whether there really is a "t" at the end.

Scenario

So morons, what do you do in this situation? Father hires escort who turns out to be someone he knows far too well.
