Saturday Night Open Thread

It was kinda warm today. It wasn’t exactly hot, with the temperature not quite hitting the mid 90s.

Still, there was a little bit of sweat pouring off yours truly, as I spent some time outside doing grandparent stuff with the youngest.

The good news is, I didn’t sweat enough to cause a massive stink.

The bad news is, I might not have known if I had.

Should’ve Started With a Simpler Ritual, Like Wearing a MAGA Hat

Fire officials say residents of an Orange County apartment that was gutted by fire were burning candles to ward off evil spirits before the blaze broke out.

Huh. Didn’t know evil spirits were flammable.

Friday Night Open Thread

I used to go to local Minor League baseball games a lot. But, with the Columbus Catfish and Savannah Sand Gnats leaving for other cities, there isn’t a local team for me.

I miss going to the games.

Socialism Doesn’t Work, Even When Proposed by Billionaire Capitalists

Bill Gates has called for a tax on robots to balance the Government’s income as jobs are lost to automation. He said the levy could help slow down the pace of change and provide money to hire additional employees in sectors that require people, such as health care.

Ah… the 21st century version of an automobile tax to save workers in the buggy whip industry.

Boo!

[Ghost House (A Horror Movie in Real Life)] (Viewer #576,869)

As a rule, horror movies go WAY too long in establishing setting & character, and wasting half the film with phony jump-scares.

This neatly condenses the perfect horror movie into its 6 essential minutes, (or 5:20, depending on how long before you can tear yourself away from the ending scene)

Moderation in All Things. Excess in a Moderate Number of Things

One scientist is now claiming that the average American needs MORE salt in his diet, not less.

That’s ridiculous! You should eat a balanced diet. Put the extra salt on some more red meat.
