Overnight Open Thread (26 Jul 2014)

My apologies for being late but my internet decided to take a break for a few hours. I just got it back.

How about a little doom to kick off the ONT. 15 reasons why the party on Wall St. is about to end in tears.


Military Enlistment

This map of enlistment rates by state is not surprising.

When Animals Go Bad

Well, you can add giant anteaters to your list of animals to watch out for. They killed two hunters in Brazil.

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead season 5 trailer was unveiled yesterday at San Diego Comic Con. I was a bit surprised at how much it reveals so don't watch it if you want to remain spoiler free.

Star Wars

America's favorite Star Wars movies and characters. These results are about right although I would rate Revenge Of The Sith higher than Phantom Of The Menace. One thing though. How the hell does Jar Jar Binks get a 29% favorable rating?

Bonus: Here's the latest trailer for the animated series Star Wars: Rebels.

Animated Weather Map Of Earth

This is a pretty cool website by Cameron Beccario that has wind, temp, and other overlays. They've now added an overlay that is called the Misery Index which is based on perceived temperature. I'm surprised the blue state big cities aren't glowing red in misery based on their AGW beliefs.

Suicide Bomber Pro-tips

Oh man. It might be wise to remove a suicide vest from a dead terrorist prior to parading him down the street. Suicide bomber kills his own mourners.
Update: A commenter has pointed out that this was a mortar/rocket hit in Syria. Bummer, I liked the idea of a jihadi work accident better.

Remember the underwear bomber? It would seem that because he wore the same pair of underwear for two weeks, it degraded the device and prevented the successful takedown of the flight he was on back on Christmas Day 2009.

Rotisserie Chicken

Ever notice that buying an already cooked rotisserie chicken is usually cheaper than buying an uncooked one at the supermarket? Here's why.

Cat Video

Kitten practicing its Kung Fu moves.

Tonight's ONT brought to you by anatomy of songs:
