Overnight Open Thread (9 May 2014)

I don't know if it is impossible but it is tiring and tedious to argue with progressives.


Math

Common core won't help you with this job interview. Can you answer the math question below without opening the article for the answer?

A hammer and a nail cost $1.10, and the hammer costs one dollar more than the nail. How much does the nail cost?

Here's the tricky math question one CEO asks to size up job candidates.

Ok, now for something different if you didn't like the math question. The Navy is looking for some new cryptologists and they are using an online game on Facebook to test your mettle. Project Architeuthis.

The game follows the storyline of a US naval cryptologist sneaking aboard an enemy submarine in order to rescue the chief architect of the US weapons programme.

Players will decode complex clues sent by the digital cryptologist to discover the location of the submarine and rescue the high profile prisoner.

Pick-up Lines Study

Heh. The really do studies for everything. What women are looking for in pick-up lines.

“This experiment examined women’s impressions of men using various “pick-up” lines. Seventy women imagined being approached by a man using a flippant and flirtatious “pick-up” line, a direct complimentary line, or an innocuous line that masks his interest. His attractiveness varied too. They then considered him for long-term or short-term relationships. Matching a “good dad” hypothesis, they favored him for a long-term relationship if he used a direct or innocuous line instead of the flippant line, because the latter conveyed lower trustworthiness and intelligence. Matching a “good genes” hypothesis, they favored him for a short-term relationship if he was attractive instead of unattractive, regardless of his pick-up line, presumably because attractiveness signals heritable fitness.

The best and worst pick-up lines in movies. Probably NSFW.

Bacon & Whiskey

Oh. My. Iowa distillery raises pigs to taste like whiskey.

Top 2013 Baby Names

Noah ends Jacob's 14-year run at top among baby names. That recent movie will probably knock Noah out of the top spot this year. Check out the top names that are changing in popularity. Jayceon? Jayse? Castiel? And who names their daughter Everleigh?

Bad British MLB Commentary

Earthquake!

Not sure I'd bother with earthquake insurance in Oklahoma but a lot of people are with the recent quake warning that was issued. Oh I'm sure the Koch brothers are behind this somehow.

Princess Leia

I hadn't heard this before today. Berlin's Terri Nunn was almost Princess Leia.
