Overnight Open Thread (27 Aug 2016)

Idiot

So why don't you just leave Colin? Canada might start you at QB. Kaepernick: I won't stand 'to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people'. Yo Colin, are you saying the US is so oppressive that it elected a Black President twice even though he's worse at Presidentin' than you are at football? Most of your largest cities with large Black populations are run by Democrats. Who's doing the oppressing and who do you always vote for? Perhaps what you are pissed off about comes from those who YOU put in office. Over and over and over again.

Improving Indoor Air Quality

These are the best houseplants to improve indoor air quality.

The bromeliad plant got a gold star from the team, managing to clean up 80 percent of the pollutants in six of the eight VOCs tested. Others scored highly for certain pollutants: the dracaena absorbed 94 percent of the chemical acetone, used in nail polish remover.

Spider plants, meanwhile, were very fast at removing VOCs, starting work just a few minutes after being placed inside its container.

Rogue Binks

Heh. Assault Ewoks.

Iran

I expect that this will turn into something more before Obama's term is up. Iran confrontations with US Navy up 50% this year.

Air Conditioning

So what's the deal in Baltimore? It's been hotter in the past in August (record was 102 degrees in 1948 ). Were schools closed then too? Dozens of Baltimore County schools closed due to the heat. How about turning on the a/c?

On this date 80 years ago.

Mae West

Things named after Mae West. Outside of the life preserver, I didn't know about the others.

A "blown periphery" parachute malfunction causes the canopy to contort into the shape of a giant brassiere, and so is referred to as the "Mae West" malfunction.

Caturday Story

Not very smart. Woman pisses off fellow motorists during daring cat rescue.
