Overnight Open Thread (26 Dec 2014)

Hope all you morons had a good Christmas and got everything you wanted from Santa.


Vets Lives Matter

It sickens me to think that the media has spent way more coverage on Michael Brown than they'll ever do covering the VA cluster fark. More than 500 vets died at VA hospitals due to mistakes.

Thai Rocket Festival

Fast and Furious

No surprise. Belatedly released and revealing Fast And Furious Docs. If only we had more journalists like Attkisson.

Justification for New Gun Control Regulations

ATF's internal Public Affairs Talking Points show the agency was using Fast and Furious to help justify new gun control regulations–without telling the public that ATF was actually facilitating the delivery of weapons to Mexican drug cartels.
The talking points (p. 15) state:

"These cases demonstrate the ongoing trafficking of firearms by Mexican DTO's and other associated groups operating in Arizona and the need for reporting of multiple sales for certain types of rifles in order to ferret out those intent on providing firearms to these criminal groups."

Spider Dress

Robotic spider dress keeps creeps at bay. Nah. It needs some weaponry to keep creeps at bay like a tazer, some pepper spray, some kind of shoulder mounted cannon like the one Predator had.

E.R. Data

Well, if you work in an E.R., you've probably seen one or two of these things that got stuck in body orifices.

"INSERTED A LONG BALLOON IN PENIS TO HAVE GIRLFRIEND BLOW UP FOR SEXUAL STIMULATION AND IT BROKE"

Song Titles

Most decade-specific words in Billboard song titles.

Dog Video

Bonus video: Dogs opening presents.
