Overnight Open Thread (24 Mar 2017)

Sadly, this is true. Stark reality of the London attack is that low-tech jihadis cannot be stopped. Cars and knives are all too easy to obtain and you can't put up vehicle barriers everywhere.


Methane

Ooops. NOAA study shows as US drilling surged, methane emissions didn't. I thought the science was settled?

Morse Code

Why WX is the abbreviation for weather. There are a lot more morse code shorthand and abbreviations at the link.

Lynda Carter's Rock and Roll Fantasy

Damn she was hot.

Campus Rape Frenzy

Everything you think you know about campus sexual assault is wrong. Now if they can forward this to the DoD so they can correct their training materials.

The best known source of the claim that only 2 percent of rape accusations are false is Susan Brownmiller's 1975 book Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape. For this fact, Brownmiller cited not a study but rather a speech, by a New York judge, who mentioned unpublished alleged finding by the "NYC Rape Analysis Squad".

Meanwhile, the real campus sexual assault frenzy committed by female teachers continues or gets buried in the news with far less coverage than fake campus rapes.
The "big three" networks -- ABC, CBS, and NBC -- continued their shameful blackout into Wednesday night of the horrifying rape of a teenage girl in a Maryland high school bathroom, allegedly by two men, including one who police say is in the U.S. illegally.

Instead, the pathetic liberal media that's shown no interest in the Rockville High School case complied with Rolling Stone in giving more than 10 minutes of coverage in two days to the fake 2014 claim that a University of Virginia fraternity gang-raped a female student.

Coexist

Once again the left proves it cannot truly coexist with folks. Conservative student targeted with hateful graffiti, rape and death threats; hires PI.

Hornet High Speed, Low Level

Greenwashing

It might be time to stop touting eco-friendly messages. I'm ok with companies that want to keep the environment clean or minimize their real pollution contributions, but I immediately don't like a company that touts silly AGW nonsense.

What If Baseball Question

Heh. What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light?

Dog Story

Wow! Firefighters successfully resuscitate unconscious dog who was overcome by smoke inhalation.

Dog Video

Tonight's ONT brought to you by can you spot the WWI sniper?:
