Overnight Open Thread (31 Jul 2015)

I guess tonight's ONT is a once in a blue moon edition!

Bonus celestial viewing tonight. You can also try to catch the Delta Aquarids. Best time to view is after midnight and there are about 20 per hour. Don't forget to put your pants back on if you go outside to view.


Scottish Research

Study finds drinking may ease chronic widespread pain. Well d'uh!

South America

This does not bode well for our border. The South American financial crisis of 2015.

13 Hours

I'm leery of any movie that involves Michael Bay but hope that they stay true to the source material. However, Ace posted earlier that it largely avoids any of the political decision making (or lack thereof) back in DC. Did Hollywood take care to do that with the many anti-Bush Iraq war movies? Anyway, here's the red band trailer.

Bias Free Language Guide

Hahaha. I guess the University of New Hampshire is learning that the internet is forever as they try to disappear their bias free language guide.

Preferred: U.S. citizen or Resident of the U.S.
Problematic: American
Note: North Americans often use "American" which usually, depending on the context, fails to recognize South America.

May as well stick to American as they're coming here in droves anyway. See earlier story on the South American economy.

Literary Road Trips

Pretty cool. Map of literary road trips.

News Fails

According to one of the clips, Amazon has more earnings than Walmart because they sell sex toys.

Cable Boxes

Cable companies refuse to reveal how much they make off of set-top boxes. FIOS is starting to piss me off. One of their remotes for a box that I have to pay a monthly fee on is starting to loss function in a few buttons. I called them and wanted to swap out the remote for a new one and they informed me that I have to purchase one. Seriously?

Hacking

Hackers can disable a sniper rifle, or change its target. If it connects to the internet, it is hackable.

Dogs vs Feathers

Democrat Dilemma

If Democrats don't have Jefferson and Jackson, who's left?
