Thursday Night Open Thread

I was never a big fan of The Doors. A lot of people were, though.

[The YouTube]

That’s right. When I have a music video in one of these Open Thread posts, it’s not always something I like. Why? Because some of you do. And one other reason. We’ll get to that later.

Right now, it’s your turn. It’s Thursday Night Open Thread.

What’s on your mind?

Meanwhile in Frostbite Falls…

A new report shows that liberal propagandist Michael Moore participated in an anti-Trump protest in New York that was organized by Russians.

Fearless Leader was furious. “I said get MOOSE and squirrel!”

It’s not that subliminal ads don’t work, it’s just that they don’t work very well. More obvious techniques give a much better return on your advertising investment.

Icebreaker: Seen Anything Lately That Made You Smile?

I found a list called “The 25 most popular icebreaker questions based on four years of data“. So I’m gonna post a few, and see what happens.

Your mission: answer the question in the comments with a good story.

If you don’t have a good story, you are encouraged to make one up.

Seen anything lately that made you smile?

The Olympics are mostly boring and too full of commercials, and I hate that it’s impossible to find a broadcast schedule so that I can just tune in to watch the good stuff.

That said, I accidentally watched the women’s snowboarding half-pipe competition. You get three runs, and only your highest score counts.

Chloe Kim (an American) had the gold locked up after her second run. All she had to do was slide down the middle of the pipe for her third run as a formality.

Instead, she pulled out all the stops, popped her best tricks, and beat her own medal-earning score.

She didn’t have to, but she did it anyway, because it’s fun.

That made me smile.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

Got a question for you. And I think know what you’ll answer. And I think I can make you change your mind.

So, the question is … The Monkees: cool or not cool?

I think you said “not cool.” But give me the opportunity to change your mind.

Do you remember Frank Zappa appearing on the show?

[The YouTube]

Yeah, you forgot about that, didn’t you? The stock of The Monkees just went up in your eyes, didn’t it?

That’s all I had. What about you? Got something you want to share? It’s Wednesday Night Open Thread.

What’s on your mind?

Because Trump’s Not President of Venezuela

Reports are coming in that people in Venezuela are so desperate, some of them are selling their hair to survive.

Weirdly, not a single Hollywood lefty doing solidarity head-shaving.

Apparently It’s a Very Slow Process

[Why Alien Life Would be our Doom – The Great Filter] (Viewer #4,066,966)

Probably the biggest filter is evolving a dominant species that survives by using ideas instead of tools.

600 million years of dinosaurs, and that never happened. Thank goodness for asteroid strikes.
