The ONT Turned Upside Down

On this day in 1781, Cornwallis surrendered to Washington (well, he had an aide do it) and England officially stopped trying to make us subjects again instead of citizens.

The British band played “The World Turned Upside Down” to mark the occasion. I wonder what they'd play today if they could see their descendants meekly surrendering their culture and sovereignty to foreign invaders? “Suicide is Painless”, probably.

A Republic, Ma'am, If You Can Keep It


Who and What Threaten the Constitution?

In general, free societies more often become unfree with a whimper, not a bang—and usually due to self-righteous pious movements that always claim the higher moral ground, and justify their extreme means by their self-sacrificing struggle for supposedly noble ends of social justice, equality, and fairness.



This is just a paraphrase of a famous quote, oft wrongly attributed to Thomas Jefferson -”A government big enough to give you everything you want is also strong enough to take everything you have”. Friday ONT quiz: Who really said it? Answer below.


What Trump Knows That Obama Didn’t

“Everything” isn't the answer. Rather, it is an answer, but not the right one here. Hint: It's also what the Founders knew.

Halloween!

Halloween is coming.

These old school Halloween costumes are fucking terrifying.

This is my Jack-O-Lantern from last year. Instead of a candle, I soaked a roll of toilet paper in kerosene, and got this wonderful result. It lasts for about 15 minutes per roll. ProTip: NEVER use gasoline, and of course this is only for use outdoors, away from anything flammable.

Sex doll rental company will make a replica of your dead lover


Notice that they are a sex doll “rental” company. “Detailer at a sex doll rental company” just went to #1 on my list of awful jobs. Still, I suppose it could be worse...

Great Story

This guy found a business card from the early 20th century in the walls of his house. He posted it on a local forum at Reddit, and a bunch of internet sleuths ran down the history behind it, including the fact that the guy whose card it was tracked down a murderer in 1896. Truly an example of positive use of the internet to crowdsource a forgotten chapter in Minneapolis history.


Happy Ending

A bit of social media nastiness directed at an adult with Down Syndrome results in him finding a job at a local seafood restaurant. Look at that 10,000 watt smile, and the smiles of his coworkers in the video. Those countries that claim to have “eradicated” DS by slaughtering the people who have it are sick with sin.

Amazing Dad Dad turns sons drawings into EPIC cartoons!

I'm guessing that dad's an artist (Well he obviously is, I just don't know if it's his profession), so when his son drew stuff, he turned the drawings into commercial-grade artworks.

History Comes Alive

What 7 ancient iconic buildings looked like during their glory days

When we visited Rome, the one book that my wife just had to have (we found it at the Vatican gift shop) was one the guide used that showed photos of current day Roman ruins with overlays that allowed you to see what they had looked like in all their glory. This is the same thing but computer generated. See the last one? The Area Sacra di Largo Argentina? That's where Caesar was assasinated.
