Overnight Open Thread (5 Dec 2014)

Not surprising based on the Obama administration track record. Obama's climate deal with China backfires. I think this comment sums it up succinctly.

China are playing Western politicians for the fools they are, quite beautifully.

* Disregard all invitations to commit to any serious cuts in carbon. This drives Western politicians crazy.
* Hold back from making any premature commitment whatsoever to ascertain precisely how stupid your opponents are (and don't interrupt them while they're making their mistakes).
* Having established you're dealing with jaw-dropping, planet-sized stupidity, request more cash than you could possibly imagine for 'climate reparations'.
* Strike a serious-looking pose and state; 'this is a serious problem created by the West'!
* Sit tight-lipped while your commercial opponents agree to hand over untold tens of $billions to pay for infrastructure you would have installed yourselves anyway.
* Nod approvingly, bow deeply and remind the West that 'while this is a start, it cannot be the finish' and that you'll be back soon for some more cash to Save The Planet From The Problem Caused By The Wicked, Selfish West.
* Go home, count the money and laugh yourselves hoarse.
* Rinse, repeat.

Discussion Fodder

Well this ought to make for some interesting discussion. The best and worst run states in America. Fitting that Illinois is ranked 50. It is where our current President came from.

My Tales Of Whisky

Bonus music video: Probably NSFW too. Bewb's dancing to Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.

Good For The King

Building a better fence on our borders is racist. However, building a better one at the White House is AOK.

The Bandit Trans Am

Well here's your chance if you've always wanted a piece of 70's cinema history. Burt Reynolds is auctioning off his Trans Am from Smokey and the Bandit. Watch out though. I hear Joe Biden is very intent on winning this bad boy.

Dragon Age

Heh. Lindsey Stirling brings a violin to a dragon fight.

Bacon

I don't think this'll work well. Bacon-scented pillows. You'd just lie awake all night hungry.

This Day In History

On this day in 1933, Prohibition ended. Well kind of. Five interesting facts about Prohibition's end in 1933.

Maritime Patrol

Confessions of a US Navy P-3C Orion maritime patrol pilot. Oh man I know this story well.
