Thursday Night Open Thread

I was going to write something, but I haven’t finished watching all the new episodes of MST3K. Yeah, I had to subscribe to The Netflix to watch them. So, I’m kinda on a schedule.

If you want to watch it, too, just fire up The Netflix, then log on The Twitter and be sure to tell everything that happens. Don’t worry about spoilers; they’ll get over it.

Or… you could post a link to something you want to share, tell a joke, comment on something, whatever’s on your mind. It’s Thursday Night Open Thread.

The Slippery Slope from Silly to Stupid

The UC Davis student senate has made it optional to display the American flag at its meetings.

What I’d Like to See Happen to Obama’s Legacy (Metaphorically Speaking)

[See Through Model Rocket Engine Burning – 4K Slow Motion] (Viewer #53,795)

I’ll be honest, too much blah blah blah, so I jumped to the 1:40 mark to watch the burn. There’s a couple more burns after the first one, but watching them is up to you. I was pretty satisfied with the first one.

Agent Clouseau Has Left the Building

Federal authorities have opened investigations into radical Islamic terrorists in all 50 states, according to the Department of Homeland Security, which is warning that the threat of terrorism in the United States has reached an all time high.

Great. I suppose they’re just going to let global warming get off scot free then?

Cartoon of the Day – Unlocked


[Gary Varvel – GoComics]

Don’t misunderstand me. I don’t think a military should go unchecked. It was designed by the Constitution to always be under civilian control. However, I don’t think the military should have unreasonable restrictions upon them. If we aren’t going to let our military fight a war with everything it’s got, we shouldn’t fight the war.

Military force is an extreme measure that should be used in extreme circumstances only. But, if circumstances necessitate its use, it should be used to utterly defeat the enemy. War is hell. It should be hell. As such, we should try everything we can to avoid it. But, if we have to fight a war, we should rain such hell down upon the enemy so that the next potential enemy will do everything they can to avoid a war with us.
