How Now Brown ONT?

Hi folks! Welcome to the Friday ONT.

Spicy!

This is a really neat article that talks about why we put spices in our food. The obvious answer is “they taste good”, but the article seeks to figure out why we think they taste good. What evolutionary advantage does desiring spices have for the human species? The answer might surprise you at first, but after a moments thought it makes perfect sense. Darwinian Gastronomy: Why We Use Spices


We're #1! We're #1!

The entire city of Baltimore was disappointed last week when the Ravens wet the bed against the Titans, but a new study was released this week that showed us right back up top where we belong. Baltimore is the top city in the US


The Ultimate In Alien Terror

Nobody:

Absolutely nobody:

Etherial Snake:

Fun fact: The Norwegian at the beginning of the film is shouting “It's in the dog!”, giving away the entire plot of the movie. Unfortunately for him he shouts in Norwegian, a language that nobody, not even folks in Norway, speaks.


Whoops

Speaking of cold places. Glacier National Park is replacing signs that predicted its glaciers would be gone by 2020


Government Medicine

NHS delays responsible for glaucoma patients going blind

The 34 year old mother of 3 is now blind after 13 months of delays in getting treatment. Over here, octogenarians get the procedure in a week. THIS is what government insurance means, and what I wish I could get those M4A idiots to understand. Actually, I don't even want them to understand. If I could, I would wave a magic wand and let them have single payer, good and hard. Just leave the rest of us, you know, those with functioning brain cells, out of it. Maybe we could hook them all up with this guy: I campaign for the extinction of the human race. Funny thing about all these anti-lifers: All of them show a distinct lack of being dead. The planet is covered in tall buildings dude. Go. Jump. Show us you have the courage of your convictions. Strangely enough, they don't.

Badass Of The Week

THE LEGEND OF CHIEF SHANNON KENT

Quite an amazing warrior. Our loss is Valhalla's gain. RIP.

Just A Small Oversight

U.S. troops found nearly 5,000 abandoned chemical weapons in Iraq from 2004 to 2011: report

I just don't understand the Bush administration keeping this on the QT. Oh, not entirely on the QT, I've seen scattered reports on this since 2005 or so, but why didn't they shout this from the rooftops? “Oh, they were older weapons”. So what? They're WMDs. Bush got crucified in the press for years over “No WMDS found”. The stunning PR incompetence of the Bush administration was truly a wonder to behold.

Ass Head Of The Week


Does this dude have a face made for glory holes, or what? Go read the thread, dude called the police, wasting their time, and then posted this on Twitter saying he was going to take Target to court. He's getting deservedly dragged all over the place, and someone pointed out that he probably doesn't have a case anyway:


Disgusting

I feel slimy all over after reading this. I’m a 37-Year-Old Mom & I Spent Seven Days Online as an 11-Year-Old Girl. Here’s What I Learned. Resolved: Any adult male who sends a picture of his junk to what he believes is an 11 year old girl shall be summarily dragged from their house in broad daylight, stripped naked, and shot in the dick with a shotgun. No appeals.

Inspiring

Delta Jet Dumps Fuel on Schoolchildren During Emergency Landing at LAX I saw a bunch of people flipping out about this on social media, but it really is a nothing burger. Nobody was hospitalized. They wiped it up and went on about their day.

We’ve Entered The Desert Of The Surreal Chasing the serotonin dragon.

Let me ask you this: 'Do detectives really pin pictures on a board when investigating a crime?' Sometimes, but it would be a lot cooler if they had Tony Stark's interactive computer interface from the Iron Man movies.
