Overnight Open Thread (7 Feb 2015)

Al Reuters really needs to think about the adjectives they use in their headlines. Take this one today. Grisly Guantanamo stories refuse to go away. Grisly? Really? I would think that word would be more applicable to say maybe describing what ISIS did to that Jordanian pilot. Or maybe to describe what befell the other hostages that have been murdered. Or maybe what Boko Haram is doing in Africa. But to use it in conjunction with sleep deprivation, being chained to the floor, being tormented by a dominatrix, etc is pretty silly.

Another example of the overdramatization of stories. You know, like what Brian Williams does.


Prison Break

Well this is an interesting prison break story. 28 inmates escape prison after women in sexy outfits 'seduce' wardens, promise orgy.

Investigators say that at around 3 a.m. on Thursday morning, some women approached the prison dressed in sexy fantasy police officer costumes. The women asked the wardens if they could come inside and drink. The wardens let them in and proceeded to party with the women before leaving their designated to posts to take part in an orgy promised by the scantily clad women.

The report claims that the women then drugged the guards with spiked whiskey and lured the guards away from their posts with promises of an orgy. Instead of an orgy, the guards were stripped naked and handcuffed. The women then stole the guards keys and unlocked all the jail cells. The prisoners who wanted to escape simply walked out the front door.

The Crusades

A little refresher on the Crusades.

Now here's a professor from Colombia University defending Obama's statements about Christianity the other day. I'm pretty confused with this statement.

In 2015, longstanding religious hatred and political wrangling are again sweeping Europe with their own shadowy sources in the last century. Kings, princes and politicians again employ draconian measures to control criticism and stop change. In this global struggle, villages have been destroyed, schools bombed, and disease left unchecked. Nor have our contemporaries lacked imagination in their violence. Schoolgirls have been kidnapped, journalists beheaded, and interrogation methods enhanced.

The religious violence sweeping Europe is being committed by militant Islamists, not Christians and it isn't exactly shadowy. I suppose it is shadowy if you call them disaffected youths. Global violence is being directed AGAINST Christians. In 2014, nearly 5,000 Christians were killed and over 1,000 churches were attacked. Where's that list of Christians attacking muslims or their places of worship in the name of God?

Star Trek Van

Anyone need a van with custom Star Trek paint job (some of the images might be NSFW).

Gun Humor

Looks about right for how often Hollywood types have to reload in movies.


This comment for the video cracked me up.
Could you please add an NSFW tag to this video, there was some extremely obvious rape-themed imagery. The ammunition slot represents the female vagina; strong, independant, free. The magazine represents the male phallus; Time after time males force it into our magazine slot and blame us for the way we look, then they leave us without so much as a thank you. It's sickening seeing Reddit support rape, and they say Rape Culture doesn't exist!

Taxes And Al

C'mon Al, it's your patriotic duty to pay up. People jailed for owing less taxes than Al Sharpton.

Robotech Movie

I'd love to see a live action Robotech movie. Hopefully this time they get it done.

Cats and Boxes

What's up with that: Why do cats love boxes so much?
