From, "Mr. Watson, come here, I need you" to "Can you hear me now?" The phone has come a long way since its invention this day in 1876.

The School District of Alexandria VA wimps out. Schools are to be closed tomorrow, Wednesday March 8th. Why you might ask? Snow storm? Ice storm? Power outages? Nope. Day Without Women. h/t Isophorone


Lutherans vs. Methodists Oh who are we kidding? Migrants riot at Swedish High School.

In an interview, school director Klik, visibly distressed, commented on the situation by saying that: “it’s terrible (…) and something that I, in my wildest imagination would never think or believe.” Police have now three to four dog patrols in the vicinity of the school.

The police reports do not mention the cultural or national background of the suspects, although locals say the suspects are migrants.


Hmmmm, just wondering out loud where these migrants are coming from. Could they be from the 6 countries on the Trump list?

One of the problems with oil is the clean up of oil spills.A sponge has been created to absorb oil.

A new material can absorb up to 90 times its own weight in spilled oil and then be squeezed out like a sponge and reused, raising hopes for easier clean-up of oil spill sites.

This contrasts with most commercial products for soaking up oil, called “sorbents”. These are generally only good for a single use, acting like a paper towel used to mop up a kitchen mess and then tossed away. The discarded sorbents and oil are then normally incinerated.


We have all heard about cheap labor. When you hear of cheap labor what do you think of? Workers milling about a DIY Box Store? People working in farm fields picking veggies or fruit? What about colleges? Yes, they promote cheap labor.

It is the senior faculty themselves who benefit from having cheap labor who can take over the daily grind of grading papers and exams. They are in fact actively helping to create this lower class of academics. “The abysmal conditions of adjuncts are not the inevitable byproducts of an economy with limited space for literature. They are intentional. Universities rely upon a revolving door of new Ph.Ds. who work temporarily for unsustainable wages before giving up and being replaced by next year’s surplus doctorates,” Birmingham argues.

Unlike affordable lettuce or milk or that deck. Secondary education is not an economic bargain.


Since we are on the Education topic, here is an interesting fact.Report: Women’s and gender studies degrees have increased 300% since 1990. And the gullible snowflakes seem to be OK with this.

Ball State women’s and gender studies major Lilly Madden disputes the notion that her employment opportunities are limited after graduation:

“When people with this degree and this background go out into the world, they have a really great tool set to be be able to understand and recognize different problems and obstacles affecting different people in our society.

“I do have job opportunities, I do have skills, I do have a college degree that is meaningful.”

With that skill set Honey, I hope you know the difference between bologna and ham. Sounds as if another Sammich Artist is about to hit the job market with $75K of debt.


Talker, Michael Savage, once wrote a book, 'Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder'. The ONT just calls them f*cking nuts. But, Savage appears to be spot on. The rising growth of personality disorders among millennials.

If you were to come across someone who cried in the streets, who saw the world in terms of black and white and made death threats against strangers, who cowered in a special room and made public displays of naked self-harm and blood letting, you might conclude that they were suffering from a personality disorder.

All these symptoms can be found in the High Conflict Personality Disorder category known as Axis II in DSMV, including Anti-Social PD, Histrionic PD, Paranoid PD, Narcissistic PD, and Borderline PD.

Alternatively, you might reason that these are the everyday behaviors of the modern Social Justice Warrior (SJW).

Quite frankly, I believe the majority of these cases involve children who were coddled, never disciplined, never told no. Our society has grown fat and lazy.


That is one helluva batting average!! 9,400 consecutive FISA search warrants granted since 2015.

In the last six years on record (2010-2015), the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court did not deny a single application out of the 9,400 the government submitted seeking authority “to conduct electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes” under the terms of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, according to reports filed by the U.S. Justice Department.


Who knew that government was so perfect?


Spring break looms large. The vacation season is just right around the corner. Be prepared for your friends of the TSA. TSA introducing screening you would only hope to get on a first date.

Our government overreacted after the 9/11 terror attacks. The ONT's position, normal screening works. We'll keep it clean.


Not sure how many here on The ONT are daywalkers. But, in case you missed it Ace was on fire Monday with his writing. Other blogs are linking to A Must Read.

Thinking about retirement? Want to leave the cold harsh? Move into Margaritaville.

So naturally, as the tropically-obsessed singer/songwriter leans into his 70th year on this sandy, tequila-filled Earth, it’s only right that Buffett has decided to partner with development company Minto Communities to open a Margaritaville-themed retirement home community.

Before you even waste a second thinking about the obvious: yes. The first location of Buffett’s retirement home will be based in Daytona, Florida.


We at The ONT would not want to be accused of shorting you folks on science projects. You too can build your own big-a$$ canon. See things go 'splodey. Mrs. Mis. Hum. told me to do it outside.

Shortly after the 2016 elections the Stock Market hit new highs. Unemployment numbers are better. Businesses have a brighter outlook. One business sees retreat from record sales.

February continued the recent trend of gun-related background checks falling from record levels since former President Obama left office and President Trump was inaugurated.

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) ran 2,234,817 checks in February, according to FBI documents. That's a retreat of nearly 400,000 checks from last February.

Guess a President Trump and SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch make all the difference in the world regarding gun sales.

The Left "won" a bad court decision recently on Trump's Travel EO. We know that the President has once again ordered an EO on travel. From all appearances he followed the decision of the 9th Circus. The Left thinks they can win again.

But what it doesn’t achieve, according to Nicholas Espíritu from the National Immigration Law Center, is changing the fundamentally Islamophobic intent of the travel and immigration restrictions—and no executive order can walk back the numerous public statements Trump and his team have made over time that it is their intent to exclude people from America based on their religious views.


Mr. Espiritu, The ONT suggests you look at the people who are allowed into our country from Morocco, Indonesia and other countries who are primarily Muslim. Frankly your humble Cob wouldn't mind more countries on the list, such as Saudi Arabia.


So many headlines, so few that are acceptable. Good news and bad news. Bad news? Your loved one is in a Maine prison. The Good news, women visitors can keep their bras on during the visit.

WARREN, Maine — After nearly half a dozen women complained about having to remove their bras to visit the Maine State Prison, the Maine Department of Corrections said Monday that it would change the policy immediately.

Wonder how many of those under wire thingys were used to poke an eye out?


Beer run for a Moron Meetup gone bad? Perhaps it would have been better to just invite the beer man to the party.


Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. Nothing said about dogs and sex. Genius Award Winner.

Well, if the bus is going to run late make sure it is for The Feel Good Story of The Day.
