Overnight Open Thread (2-11-2015)

Media Appearance Alert: DrewM will be a guest tonight on the "Splintered Caucus" radio show starting at 10pm EST. I was confused when he said 'no funny stuff' but now I get that that's just his way of saying he loves it when morons make elaborate prank phone calls into his guest appearances.

Who Owns Hillary?

Pretty much every big money investment firm that's who. And that's not counting all the 'speaking fees' she's raked in over the years. But remember Hillary is out there fighting for you.*



*Well you if you have annual revenues over say $30 billion and feel like just giving away some of it to a worthy lady-politician who cares about the little investment firms.

Dolphin-F*cker Documentary Finally Coming Out

Some men see a randy dolphiness who wants in their swim trunks and won't take no for an answer, briefly consider a bit of cetacean love and then ask why - but others like Michael Brenner ask why not? It's not like anyone would ever find out...

"At first I discouraged her, I wasn't interested," Brenner says in the movie. "After some time I thought, 'If this was a woman would I come up with these rationalizations and excuses?' "

How They Built the SR-71 Blackbird

The A-12 and the SR-71 were a completely different design from anything else before it-and everything after, as time has demonstrated. At the time, many of the technologies needed to make these airplanes were considered "impossible." And yet, thanks to Kelly Johnson and the amazing team at engineers and scientists at Lockheed's Skunk Works, they were invented from scratch-in twenty months.

According to Lockheed Martin's official account, Kelly Johnson-the engineer who made the A-12 Oxcart and the SR-71 Blackbird-"everything had to be invented. Everything." From the The Pratt & Whitney J58 engines-a technological feat still unsurpassed by today's mass manufactured airplanes-to its titanium skin-capable of surviving temperatures from 315C (600F) to more than 482C (900F)-and composite materials. Its landing gear, for example, is"the largest piece of titanium ever forged in the world." Ironically, the United States did not have enough titanium to build these airplanes, so they have to buy it from the Soviet Union. Imagine that: Buying the only material in the world that could make an spy plane from the country you wanted to spy.
