Overnight Open Thread (17 Jan 2015)

I'm still having desktop computer power up issues. No joy with the troubleshooting so far so this ONT is gonna be weaker than normal. Y'all just gonna have to deal with it.

Sadly, I don't think the Bergdahl report is going to be what it should be. Generals are politicians too and I'm sure this WH has impressed upon them that they either rule as they want or get replaced.

In White House terms, not charging Bergdahl means that he was indeed worth the trade for the Taliban Five. But charging him on any level means that releasing the five Taliban was an error of monstrous proportions, one the administration will never be able to explain away satisfactorily.

R2D2 With Subtitles

R2D2 Subtitles by eclecticmethod

Combat Car

A Romanian combat car. Looks better than some of those technical vehicles in use by those individuals prone to workplace violence not in the name of Islam. Then again, there are some pretty big guns on those technicals.


Well this ought to fix the combat capability of the LCS. Let's just call it a Frigate now.

Remakes and Reboots

Seems like Hollywood is still out of ideas. Fox confirms 'X-Files' reboot talks are ongoing. Now if they cast Christina Hendricks as Scully, I might tune in.

Then there is the remake of Escape From New York. At least John Carpenter is involved with it. So who should play Snake Plissken? Gerard Butler?

Smart Power

Europeans not amused by John Kerry's performance.

Another Idiot Gets Fired

Another idiot gets fired for participating in the I-93 protest. Get this though, she had a job with the city as a 'gender and migration consultant'. That job title alone should get one fired.

Cat Video

Tonight's ONT brought to you by deep thoughts from cats:
