What were you doing tonight at 8PM? Were you watching the World Series, Sunday Night Football? Perhaps you were online paying bills? Maybe you were online visiting with friends and/or family via Skype or Face Time.


At 8PM Eastern on October 30, 1938 a young actor by the name of Orson Welles frightens the nation via radio.

The show began on Sunday, October 30, at 8 p.m. A voice announced: “The Columbia Broadcasting System and its affiliated stations present Orson Welles and the Mercury Theater on the air in ‘War of the Worlds’ by H.G. Wells.”

Sunday evening in 1938 was prime-time in the golden age of radio, and millions of Americans had their radios turned on. But most of these Americans were listening to ventriloquist Edgar Bergen and his dummy “Charlie McCarthy” on NBC and only turned to CBS at 8:12 p.m. after the comedy sketch ended and a little-known singer went on. By then, the story of the Martian invasion was well underway.


As we approach Halloween, let us show concern for the children. Let's keep them safe and don't let them play with Mainway Toys.

Here's a pretty cool costume. Beats going as a Smurf.

Halloween prank at the drive-thru. So what are you 'rons & 'ettes preparing to do tomorrow night?

Not your typical conservative or Republican. Camille Paglia slams Cankles Hillary Clinton as a disaster.

Lesbian feminist author and professor Camille Paglia has delivered a scathing rebuke of Hillary Clinton, saying the sole reason for the Democratic presidential nominee’s success is because she is a woman.
“It’s an outrage how she’s played the gender card,” Ms. Paglia told The Spectator magazine in an interview published Friday. “She is a woman without accomplishment. ‘I sponsored or co-sponsored 400 bills.’ Oh really? These were bills to rename bridges and so forth. And the things she has accomplished have been like the destabilization of North Africa, causing refugees to flood into Italy … The woman is a disaster!”
Ms. Paglia, who has taught humanities and media studies at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia since 1984, also slammed modern-day feminism as coddling women to their own detriment.
“We are rocketing backwards here to the Victorian period with this belief that women are not capable of making decisions on their own,” she said. “This is not feminism — which is to achieve independent thought and action. There will never be equality of the sexes if we think that women are so handicapped they can’t look after themselves.

Recently we featured college campus in South Africa. The ONT is sad to report. The same stupid shit which occurs here on US college campuses is also taking place in Canada.

It appears rank stupidity has gone world wide on college campuses.

Special snow flakes in Austin who attend The University of Texas are offended. Not sure why they are? What they are protesting goes on in real life with people.

The ONT has featured this young lady before. She's at it again on YouTube running for President. You don't want wrinkly vagina balls running your country, do you?

Speaking of elections, last week The ONT had a link about the Pirate Party of Iceland. Elections were held yesterday in Iceland. They finished in 3rd place.

But there was enough upheaval to cost the P.M. his job.

Elections, vote early, vote often. It also doesn't matter if you're dead. Disenfranchised electorate, where is the Left? Oh yeah, it only helps them.

Hoping for SMOD? Well, continue to hope away. Earth is safe another day.

Devastating earthquake in Italy.

"Men" are losing their Man Card at an exceedingly fast pace. I told my wife, don't even think about knitting something like this.

I'm not an asshole I'm an introvert.We will be the judge of that.

It took awhile, but he had his parking ticket dismissed. Persistence, what can't it accomplish?

Has the NFL suffered irreparable damage? A recent poll reveals that a disgruntled bench warmer may have damaged the world's biggest sport.

There’s a price to be paid for everything — even for being politically correct in a “politically correct time.” A new poll shows that the main cause of the National Football League’s much discussed ratings drop is, in fact, the National Anthem Protests sparked by the very ignorant and callow Colin Kaepernick.

But here’s the really bad news for the NFL: some of the boycotting fans may never come back.

Marx was right, sort of. More thought and commentary on the NFL.

The Tasmanian Devil as an antibiotic. Not quite the Looney Tunes. How to milk a Tasmanian Devil.

Milking a Tasmanian devil might sound like a harrowing ordeal, but Faulkner says this was not the case. “When they have contact with humans they don’t try and rip your calf muscle off your leg,” he says. Tasmanian devils in the wild (and in conservation facilities that encourage them to retain wild behavior) are actually rather timid around people.

So no keepers were savaged while collecting the precious milk. “They do very well when they’re dark, they’re confined, they’re concealed; they’ll relax, and so essentially it’s a very nonintrusive process,” Faulkner says.

News tips, loose change and a cup of sugar can be sent here.

No tricks only treats at The Group.

The staff and management at The ONT were made aware of two possible Genius Award Winners. We will let you Morons decide who the Genius Award Winner is.

Genius Award Winner candidate 1

Genius Award Winner candidate 2

Feel good story of the day.
