Overnight Open Thread (19 Feb 2016)

Yes, it's true. The Republicans have no balls and I fear Harry Reid is right when he says the Republicans will cave. They always do.


Speeding Tickets

Here are the cars that get the most and least tickets. Of course you are gonna get a speeding ticket driving a 350Z. When was the last time you saw one of those not speeding?

Dueling

With the way this election is headed, I'd be OK with dueling coming back.

The Chicken Test

ER Visits

Pretty cool interactive chart. These are the top 250 products that people injure themselves on or within a year. Stairs is number one.

Anti-SMOD

Damn. Looks like NASA wants to try and stop SMOD. NASA creates planetary defense office. Who do they think they are kidding? Our government can't even run a website let alone send up astronauts. They'll just end up focusing on CO2 or something and call it a day.

Allocated Money Just Sitting

House rejects Obama's request for $1.8 billion to fight Zika. Evidently, HHS is sitting on $1.4 billion that was allocated for Ebola. I wonder how much other money is sitting in between the cushions that hasn't been spent?

Tank Icecapades

Watch American battle tanks skid around in Norwegian snow.

NYC

The slashing and stabbings will continue until the transformation back to the 80's is complete. NYC on edge after 3 slashings and 1 stabbing hit within 3 days. That brings the total since mid-December to more than 21.

We're So Screwed

Bond, Jamesina Bond - national security in the Social Justice Warriors' brave new world.

CIA Director John Brennan said diversity and inclusion are "at the heart" of what the intelligence service is "charged to do."

So the CIAs primary mission now is essentially HR stuff?

Germs

This does not seem like news to me and one could argue that hotels and other forms of public transportation are the same. Airline employee reveals surprising things passengers aren't told.
