Overnight Open Thread (4 Oct 2014)

In the last two election cycles, unemployment dropped drastically right before the election, rose soon after. Just a coincidence it dropped again before this midterm I'm sure.

rdbrewer sent along this fun little link. You answer a series of questions and at the end, it'll show where you lie on the Political Compass.


Government At Work

I just shake my head that someone actually thought that this study is worthy of spending taxpayer money on. Feds wonder why fat girls can't get dates. Taxpayers wonder why we're paying for this shit. To the tune of $466,642.

Plate Armor Combat

Popular culture is usually wrong about plate armor combat.

Then there is the obvious discussion of the longbow vs armor.

The Nuclear Football

The story of the "football" that follows Presidents everywhere.

A recurring complaint of presidents and military aides alike has been that the Football, which currently weighs around 45 pounds, contains too much documentation.

Oh crap. Hope they have the cliffnotes version on teleprompter that can fit in a golf bag for this President.

Game Of Thrones

Western cover edition.

BMW Flamethrower

With the burning times just right around the corner, this might be a handy mod for your BMW. The flamethrower option for your BMW. So not legal but like I said, once the burning times get here.

Flight MH 370

The search for flight MH370 resumes. CNN is giddy.
