Overnight Open Thread (7-1-2015)

Quote of the Day

By that point, Helmsley had fully dropped the 'blueblood snob' gimmick, appearing in T-shirts and leather jackets. During this period, his ring name was shortened to simply Triple H. Even after the DX versus Hart Foundation storyline ended, Helmsley continued to feud with the sole remaining Hart family member Owen Hart over the WWF European Championship. This ended in a match between the two at WrestleMania XIV, with the stipulation that Chyna had to be handcuffed to then-Commissioner Sgt. Slaughter. Helmsley won after Chyna threw powder into Slaughter's eyes, momentarily 'blinding' him and allowing her to interfere in the match.

-- from the Wikipedia article on Triple H

Comment of the Day

Let's sweep away the lies and just say it out loud:

90% of the left's attempts at social control are simply attempt to outlaw behaviors they perceived as favored or engaged in by 'traditional" "conservative" "old-school" "white" etc. people.

Thus, a liberal can simultaneously demand that cigarettes be outlawed but marijuana be legalized.

Why? Because (in their conception of social reality) marijuana is a leftist intoxicant favored by the "counter-culture" while nicotine is a right-wing intoxicant favored by the "dominant culture."

"The Man" smokes cigars. "The Rebels" smoke weed.

That's all there is to it.

...It's absolute juvenile revenge fantasy, leftover from the '60s. That's all it is. The younger generation of activist are automatons acting out the revenge fantasies of their professors.

Former CNN Anchor, Husband Involved in Motel Shootout, Robber Killed

He picked the wrong former anchor alright.

[Former CNN Headline news anchor Lynne] Russell - a licensed private investigator and former Fulton County, Georgia, sheriff's deputy with two martial arts black belts - told NBC station KOB that she and her husband had stopped in Albuquerque for dinner with a friend and were planning to get up early because they were traveling." A man with "a 40-caliber big shiny silver handgun" pushed her into her Motel 6 room just as her husband was coming out of the shower . . .

The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

nighthawk

n. a recurring thought that only seems to strike you late at night-an overdue task, a nagging guilt, a looming and shapeless future-that circles high overhead during the day, that pecks at the back of your mind while you try to sleep, that you can successfully ignore for weeks, only to feel its presence hovering outside the window, waiting for you to finish your coffee, passing the time by quietly building a nest.
