Monday Night Open Thread

Trying to relax after a long, hard day is a hit-and-miss proposition. Some days, you don’t really get anything accomplished that you expected, but still had the entire day taken up by the unexpected.

In other words, it’s a Monday.

Of course, that leads into Monday Night Open Thread. It’s your turn to take control of the conversation. Tell a joke, tell a lie, telephone someone you love, whatever is on your mind.

Who wants to start?

I Imagine This Is All Done By Creepy Boston Dynamics Robots Now

[Globe Making (1955)] (Viewer #216,027)

We had a globe in my house when I was a kid. I used to become fascinated by it on a regular basis… then I’d go off and do something that was actually fun.

But I’d go back to it again and again, staring at the unpronouncable country and city names.

Also, I remember thinking the Pacific Ocean was just freakin’ huge.

Which I later found out was true when I sailed across it during my Navy days.

Link of the Day: Um… Man-Made Global Warming?

[High Praise! to Mental Floss]

Millions of Years Ago, the Caribbean Flooded the Amazon Rain Forest—Twice

Some perspective on global warming: things change radically (and without human help) over MILLIONS of years. Environmentalists want you to be panicked over the minor fluctuations of one century.

Smells like a scam to me.

Straight Line of the Day: My Obamacare Doctor Practices Medicine the Way…

A little explanation: in the comments to this post, Oppo [High Praise!] thought this line from Frank J. could be turned into a good SLOTD, and I agree:

“I’m certainly glad my doctor doesn’t practice medicine the way my legislature legislates.”

Works like this: I feed you Moon Nukers a straight line, and you hit me with a punch line in the comments.

My Obamacare doctor practices medicine the way…

Cartoon of the Day – Legacy

[Michael P. Ramirez]

If it seems to you like we are just piling on in regards to Obama — after all, he’s been out of the White House nearly four months — consider that he’s still a hero to people with limited cognitive skills.
