The ONT With Terror And Slaughter Returns!

Howdy Horde! Thursday night again, which means it's time to sit back, relax, pop open a cold one and see what the internet world's been up to lately.

The Empress Hits The Big Time

Well, Twitchy anyway. They featured an excellent Twitter thread by our very own Alex the Chick about red flag laws.


Lying to your face

I hope she remembers us little people when she is basking in fame and glory.


This Is Beautiful


Michelangelo’s Moses and his little finger

Lots of interesting stuff, but this but astonished me.

Check the below image set 2 which shows various groups of muscles in our forearm. 20 muscle groups to be precise, divided into posterior and anterior compartments. Whether you want to simply move a single finger or want to hold your coffee cup or want to grip a 24 lb dumbbell in your fist, you either require all or some of these groups to enable you. For our discussion let’s just focus on a particular muscle group called extensor digiti minimi which are a part of the posterior compartment. Follow the purple group of muscle tissue in the below image. Extensor digiti minimi is an accessory extension to support the little finger’s movement

The thing is, this tiny muscle is only visible against the skin when you are raising your little finger. Moses' little finger is raised – and if you look closely, you can see Michelangelo carved the muscle into Moses' forearm. That's an astonishing attention to detail, even more so when you consider that he's a turtle.

Situational Awareness


Guy jumps out of his car and attacks an officer with a hatchet. Fortunately the cop was aware of his surroundings, he draws fast and puts the guy down. Didn't even drop the license and registration he has in his hand. The next tweet shows a dash cam view of the incident.



White Supremacy


As a black man who refuses to be a victim, I have a very different definition of who the white supremacists are


White supremacy is a belief system that holds black people as continuous victims in a white-majority society, deeming them incapable without the benevolence of white people or the government and constantly portraying them as impoverished, weak-willed, overly emotional, mentally fragile and without fortitude.

It fuels the idea that black people constantly need a helping hand because they will always be marginalized and incapable of doing for themselves otherwise.

If TX-34 is any indication, we might be seeing a preference cascade among the Latino population. I wonder if we'll see one among the black population as well?

Clickbait

Q:What do you do when you had to work much later than usual, and you're light on content for the ONT?

A: Clickbait!

That being said, I don't mind articles such as these, as long as they don't have tons of pop-ups and shit (and these don't, at least not in Brave). I find people endlessly fascinating, and some of the antics in these stories are hilarious. Some are chilling and a bunch more are stupid. In short, they're full of human beings.

The Most Disturbing Medical Cases

Heard this from an emergency doctor friend of mine a while ago. Female patient comes in complaining of severe abdominal pain, nurses take vitals, ask questions, etc. Eventually, my friend sees her and, after a few questions, he has her lift her shirt. The “severe abdominal pain” on the chart was in fact due to a gash so severe that part of her intestines were sticking out of her. No one had noticed and she hadn’t thought to mention that her organs had started leaking out. In fact, she seemed just as surprised as he was.

Tonight's ONT has been brought to you by keepers (meme stolen from my wife's Twitter feed):
