Monday Overnight Open Thread) (12/12/16)

In honor of The National Day today.


Yes, it's December 12th, National Ding-A-Ling Day. No word if today was brought to you by Chuck Berry.

Oh, that kind of ding-a-ling.

Don't care for this National Day. Wait until tomorrow when it is National Pick A Pathologist Day.

Quotes Of The Day

Quote I

We've waged war on work. We have collectively agreed, stupidly, that work is the enemy. Mike Rowe

Quote II

When I hear somebody sigh, 'Life is hard,' I am always tempted to ask, 'Compared to what?' Sydney J. Harris

Quote III

I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly. Winston Churchill


Speaking of ding-a-ling. If you're headed to the Antarctic, be careful with yours. You don't want Polar Penis.

Cruel winds add to plunging temperatures and threaten to freeze them stiff. Yet so far only unlucky Alex, 26, has been hit by the medical condition, also known as Antarctic Willy.

Alex posted: “We found for some reason I was getting particularly chilly in the nether regions.

“There’s a phenomenon called Polar Penis, which sounds hilarious but as it turns out incredibly unpleasant, and really quite painful and cold, so suffering a bit from this morning.


But, we were promised no math in tonight's ONT.

From Newton’s mechanical calculations to Einstein’s general and special relativity to the baffling indeterminacy of quantum mechanics, the discipline of physics has become increasingly arcane and complex, and less and less governed by orderly laws. This presents a problem for the layperson, who struggles to understand how Newtonian physics, with its predictable observations of physical forces, relates to the parallax and paradox of later discoveries. “If you don’t already know physics,” says physicist Dominic Walliman in the video above, it’s difficult sometimes to see how all of these different subjects are related to each other.” So Walliman has provided a helpful visual aid: an animated video map showing the connections between classical physics, quantum physics, and relativity

Bob Dylan accepted the Nobel Prize for Literature over the weekend.

I’m sorry I can’t be with you in person, but please know that I am most definitely with you in spirit and honored to be receiving such a prestigious prize. Being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature is something I never could have imagined or seen coming. From an early age, I’ve been familiar with and reading and absorbing the works of those who were deemed worthy of such a distinction: Kipling, Shaw, Thomas Mann, Pearl Buck, Albert Camus, Hemingway. These giants of literature whose works are taught in the schoolroom, housed in libraries around the world and spoken of in reverent tones have always made a deep impression. That I now join the names on such a list is truly beyond words

Rumor has it that there are some damn fine Morons who know how to get around in the kitchen. So, you know your way around the kitchen? How are you in the shipping and handling department?

Wait for cookies to cool completely before you pack them. You don’t want to ruin their texture or encourage bacterial growth.

Pack the cookies in an airtight container, and make sure there’s plenty of padding in your package so they don’t bounce around and break.

Certain types of cookies are better for shipping than others. Flakey and fragile cookies like macarons, Florentines, and cream-filled sandwich cookies will probably be damaged in transit no matter what. Opt for sturdier cookies like chocolate chip, sugar, and gingerbread.

Please, thank you, excuse me.Just some basic words in your vocabulary. However, it appears that they are not common words. The need for manners.

Has the death penalty gone to high tech? Is there a way to execute someone painlessly? Was the recent Alabama execution botched?

The object of the protocol is to create a painless execution and that is not what we saw last night,” she continued. Smith also reportedly reacted to “consciousness tests” performed by a guard long past the point when he should have been conscious.
The ONT has a couple of ideas including calibers .32-.44.

Tonight's Musical Interlude

Since we are still on the Christmas music kick. Thank you Jewish composers.

Over a month since Hillary Clinton was judged to never be president of the USA. It's time to get over it, isn't it? Bill Burr's take. Oh and by the way, NSFW

Is he a crappy thief or just today's Genius Award Winner

In case you missed Saturday's Army vs. Navy football game. Here is our first Feel Good Story of The Day. Outstanding.
