Friday Night Open Thread

It’s the weekend! Happy dance!

Of course, weekends means sports. Well, there are some sports that play through the week. I mean, there’s baseball, right? Great sport. My team sucks.

Still, we like sports.

It’s Friday Night Open Thread. That means you don’t have to talk about sports. You pick the topic. Or topics. Lots and lots of topics. But you can talk about sports if you want. Or tell a joke. Or share a link. Or anything.

Who wants to start?

Although I imagine they’ll eventually make it more decorative for end-user consumption.

Inauguration: Street Artist Targets Hollywood Anti-Trumpers With ’24’ Spoof Posters

Full disclosure: Generally speaking, I don’t care much for “street artists”. They’re technically vandals, and if they get arrested while doing “street art”, I have no problem with their fines & jail time.

That said, I like his work. Just not how chooses to post it without the permission of the owners of the property he displays it on.

Or Possibly a YouTube Video

A new study shows that, more than ever, Americans are stressed, depressed, and anxiety-ridden.
