Overnight Open Thread (11 Jul 2014)

Ah c'mon, it's obvious why they're using the term "polar vortex" for the chillier weather next week. It's laying the groundwork for next GDP report miss.

BTW, today is National Mojito Day.

Tank Auction

Do You Do These Things?

My parents taught me to do many of these things (except the lace and cloth diaper thing). 11 things your great grandparents did that you don't do now.

F-16 Video

BONUS: Blue Angel surprise at a mall. It's at the end.

Pacific Pivot

The Pentagon can plan new tactics all they want to deter the Chinese in the South China Sea, but without a change at the NCA level, it won't be taken very seriously. Hell, we're not even defending our own sovereignty right now.

Flight Insurance

Hmmmm. All my flights that I've taken this year wouldn't have paid out if I had paid for this AirCare flight insurance.

AirCare aims to ease the stress of air travel. Offered by Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection, a policy costs just $25 per domestic trip. The insurance pays a traveler $50 if a departing or connecting flight is delayed by two or more hours, $500 if a flight delay leads to a missed connection and $1,000 if a tarmac delay exceeds two hours. Payments for baggage woes include $500 if misplaced luggage is delayed by more than 12 hours and $1,000 for bags lost or stolen.

Name That Exoplanet

Here's our chance morons to name an exoplanet. Perhaps Peruvia?

Dogs Are Smart

People think their dogs are smarter than they really are. I'm willing to bet dogs are smarter than LIVs.
