Overnight Open Thread (1 Nov 2014)

That's right bitches, daylight savings time is here again. Set yer clocks back one hour when you go to bed. VA Viper has a nice roundup of some DST related links.


While we've had a couple of space failures this week, China successfully launched 3 space missions.

Daylight Savings-The Movie

Flight Incident

You never know in the world of aviation just what might cause an inflight emergency. This time, it was a spare bottle of hand soap.

The Canadian TSB reported maintenance identified the source of the smoke behind the aft lavatory mirror where a spare plastics soap container had been placed but had fallen over leaking soap onto the electrical connectors of the lavatory lights. The TSB said: "The operator actioned a fleet wide campaign by disallowing cleaning services to locate the spare soap bottles behind the mirror shelf until a solution could be developed to prevent this type of event."

Question Of The Day

How come oil speculators only get blamed for rising oil prices and never for falling prices?

In Sen. Sanders' fantasy world, I guess we are we to assume that greedy speculators only enter the futures markets when they "smell profits" from rising oil prices, but then they suddenly disappear whenever prices are falling? As if greedy traders can't speculate just as easily on falling prices (with a short position), as they can for rising prices (with a long position)? Alternatively, I guess Sen. Sanders would have us believe that speculative trading (and not market forces) is solely (or largely) responsible for rising oil or commodity prices, but then market forces (and not speculation) suddenly take over and are responsible for falling prices? After all, greedy speculators who correctly anticipate the future direction of commodity prices can make just as much money when they correctly predict that prices will rise as they can when they correctly predict falling prices.

Oh and another question for Democrats (and some Republicans). Who should get the next U.S. jobs? Immigrants or Americans?

How Likely You Are To Die From Something

How likely you are to die from something. I gotta call BS on the death by firearm rate. It was more likely than getting killed in a car??? And why wasn't death by Obamacare on this list?

Choom Gang Accessories For Cats

I can already see some poor kid leaving one in their pocket and getting busted at school. Catnip joints, cigarette-style catnip toys for those cats that wish to partake.

Don't worry, it's not a real spider for those with spider phobias.
