Open Thread: Well, THAT'S a Relief! [Y-not]

Taken from the headlines at Drudge (via RT.com):

While a majority of Americans asked by a US journalist to support President Obama's "plan" to nuke Russia signed a fake petition to do so, RT decided to conduct its own poll on the streets of Moscow. Most people said no to striking America.

Don't fret, though, Obama still has over a year to accomplish all of his goals.

In other news closer to (my) home:


NSA Launches 'Revenge Porn Site':

With the declassification of nearly all of the National Security Agency's metadata following the expiration of the Patriot Act, the government agency announced today that they had released all the data on a new website, naughtysecurity.com.

The website is being described by fans and critics alike as "the world's largest revenge porn site," with advocates noting that "NSA has found a goldmine that they're going to capitalize on," as Douglas Federmine of Bloomberg Business put it.

OK, that's from DuffelBlog.

CDC Finds Live Anthrax In All Test Samples Shipped By Military:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now believes that there was live anthrax in all of the samples mistakenly sent by the U.S. military to 69 laboratories in 19 states, the District of Columbia and five countries. It has instructed the labs to destroy any remaining anthrax still in their possession.

CDC testing found low levels of live anthrax in all 22 samples it had received from affected laboratories.

The samples were from labs that had received supposedly inactivated material from the Army Proving Ground in Dugway, Utah.

I know I feel safe.
