Overnight Open Thread (1 Apr 2016)

Looks like winter isn't done yet as April snow to coat northeastern US this weekend. Man, I just got my pool water up to snuff i.e. no longer green. Now it's gonna be a tad chilly to take a dip.


Violent Cities

Revisiting the world's most violent cities. Hmmm, many are south of us and we aren't enforcing the border and democrats insist on taking away our 2nd Amendment rights. Eff that.

ISIS Bag Handlers

At least 50 ISIS supporters are working as baggage handlers, cleaners and catering staff at Brussels airport. I wonder how many are working as bag handlers here in the US? It's happened before, this one recently.

Greatest One-Liners Before The Kill

Thermite Launcher

Homemade thermite cannon. Just a tad dangerous. Needs more range though.

NFL Combine Question

A strange question to ask but perfect for an ONT. If you wanted to kill a guy, would you kill him with a gun or a knife? The answer the LSU safety gave was weird though. Knifing is for fun? Also, if you have to continuously stab someone you're trying to kill, you are doing it wrong.

Sword Names Or 80's Metal Band?

Cold In July

I caught this movie the other day and it was pretty good. The story is about a homeowner who kills an intruder in his house and then having to deal with the vengeful father of the intruder. It stars Sam Shepard, Michael C. Hall (from the Showtime series Dexter), and Don Johnson. I loved the soundtrack. Very 80's synth, almost John Carpenter like, and it even included a track from Dynatron (Cosmo Black).

April Fools' Day

Heh. 4 Far-out space hoaxes for April Fools' Day.

The morning of April 1, 1976, Moore announced on a BBC radio station that at 9:47 am, Pluto would pass behind Jupiter, creating the Jovian-Plutonian Gravitational Effect. These planets would pull at the Earth, temporarily decreasing its gravity. Moore instructed his audience that if they jumped into the air at exactly 9:47, they’d be able to feel it.

When the time came, Moore instructed his listeners to "Jump, now!" Afterwards, many listeners called in to report that they'd floated.

Oh Oh

This isn't good for Texas in the long run. Number of Californians moving to Texas hits highest level in nearly a decade. Look at what happened to Colorado and Nevada. Unless these newcomers change their voting patterns, they're going to be electing folks that will implement policies that they have been fleeing. Eventually, they won't have any place to flee to.

Car Headlights

Glad to know it wasn't my imagination when I noted on my new car that the headlights seemed to be dimmer. IIHS says lots of new car headlights in the U.S. are garbage.

Dog Video

Tonight's ONT brought to you by pictures that prove you have a dirty mind:
