Overnight Open Thread-New Year's Eve Edition
— CDR M

Happy New Year Moron Nation!! I don't know about you guys, but I'm so glad 2011 is over. Now on to 2012 where we all know we have a role to play in the Election of All Elections. Get involved. Some way, some how. Just do it.

Now here is your PSA for the evening. There is always a lot of focus on drunk driving but there is something else just as dangerous if not more so. The Perils Of Drunk Walking. Be very careful when you get your swerve on and stumble home.

For every mile walked drunk, turns out to be eight times more dangerous than the mile driven drunk. To put it simply, if you need to walk a mile from a party to your home, you’re eight times more likely to die doing that than if you jump behind the wheel and drive your car that same mile.

Video of the greatest Drunk Walk ever caught on video below the fold.

New Year's Eve Info

Here are 10 Things You Might Not Know About New Year's Eve.

For children born after 1975 in the US, much of our concepts of the New Year have been shaped by the Rankin/Bass film Rudolph’s Shiny New Year, a sequel to the stop motion classic Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Rudolph travels through the Archipelago of Time, where old years retire after they’ve run their course. There’s also something about a huge, horrifying bird, and a baby named Happy, too. Really, I have a feeling if I ever watch this film again I might never recover. It did, however, introduce the word “archipelago” to my lexicon, for which I am quite grateful.

Fun Ways To Ring In The New Year

Saw this over at Neatorama. 10 Fun Ways To Ring In The New Year.

In many countries, including Spain, Italy, Bolivia, and a variety of other countries, it is also traditional to wear certain colors of underwear on New Year’s Eve in order to bring good luck in the next year. While red is the traditional color in Spain and Italy, colors vary from country to country. In Bolivia, red is for love and yellow is for money…presumably that means you’re in for both if you wear red and yellow polka dots.

Flying Cat

I'm hoping he landed on his feet.


Nekkid Airlines?

Based on my travels on airlines, it's a rare occurrence that I would deign to see the passengers in the buff. According to this article, I'm in the minority on this one. Hands Up, Pants Down: The Pros And Cons Of Flying Nude.

In an entirely unscientific survey conducted by Trip Advisor, nearly four in five of the 22,091respondents said they were willing to get their gear off when high in the sky, if it meant that other people on the flight would also be under-dressed.

The upsides include reduced plane weight, no-fuss body scans and plenty of good visual amusement when your flight is delayed.

On the downside, you'd want to hope there's no turbulence while the hostie is waving a pot of piping hot coffee above your jewels.

It’s also worth keeping in mind that planes are generally not full of people from Country Road catalogues. They are full of people who are bony, smelly, withered, blubbery, saggy, knobbly, bent and who come with rashes, stretch marks, pimples, scars and all manner of other nasties.

Cat VS Dog

Frankly, I'm amazed the cat was able to pull off some of these tricks.

People Of The Year

This list is much better than the Time Person of the Year. The 2011 UPROXX People Of The Year. I think all Morons will agree with this award here:


This though might give Christina a run for the money. Kate Upton: Internet Girlfriend Of The Year.
Update: Niedermeyer's Dead Horse says THIS is ONT Worthy Kate Upton Material.


Real Fireworks


America's Drunkest Cities

Heh. No surprise. Boston is number one. America's Drunkest Cities.

Bonus: What Your "Drink" Says About You.

Martini: If you're a guy, you're trying to impress (and it's probably working). If you're a girl drinking a dirty martini, you're a hot mess: the dirtier, the messier, the hotter.

Bud Light: You're easy going, laid back, and at home at a sports bar. If you're a girl, you know how to hang with the guys.

Stella Artois: You have no particular knowledge or affinity towards beer so you just order "Stella" cause it's familiar.

Whiskey, neat: You're hot. Regardless of gender.

32 9 out of 10 on the rifle quiz. The one I missed: is the M4 not the current standard US Army rifle? Haven't heard of anyone being issued an old M16 in ages. The answer to the "first assault rifle" is the German Sturmgewehr 44.

My New Year's Eve just got a lot better, wifey went to bed.  So, for you serious rock fans, check out the band Kings X and their song Pray and Ty Tabor with his song Ride, on youtube.  Seriously, if you like rock, check it out (and sorry I can't link).  And if I'm being annoying, give me a f*ckin break, I'm on my 11th beer.

Happy New Year!

Soap, I got that question right, but I agree that it was unclear.  My interpretation was more "have they improved?", to which I would say they have not, to any great extent.  The 1911 is still a proven fight-stopper, and a man person with a .30-06 or .308 bolt gun can accomplish anything with their gun that anyone else, armed with a more modern variation, can, if they know what they are about.

maybe what might help is to start looking for houses already in the new place, so that she can perhaps look forward to what new house and new memories you all might make?

Actually, I believe that autoloaders have been around for longer than 100 years now, even for civilians. Didn't Browning make an autoloading shotgun back in 1910 or so? In any case, the last hundred years or have been refining things invented around the turn of the century for the most part. The nineteenth century was the really big century for gun inventions - we went from flintlocks to machine guns and autoloading pistols in a hundred years. It has been largely refinement since.

That is waaaaayyy too much police coverage.

And we're about to go that route ourselves.

TSA is about to start searches on trains and buses etc.

Next they will be doing random stops on the freeway. All for YOUR safety and security.

Because of timing issues, my original plan is going to have to wait a bit.  It's no big deal - I'm young enough to try to go in later if I wish.  Besides, I'd like to do a postdoc or two to get some publications and expand my skill set a bit. 

As for postdoc positions...Texas is looking more and more promising, but my main goal is to get away from PA for a while.  My search is focused mostly on the South/Mid-West areas.  We'll see.  Even though the economy sucks right now, and probably won't get any better at least until the SCoaMF is gone, it's still a good time to train.

290 Of course I have no room to talk, I've been drinking Schlitz tall boys this evening. PBR is just too mainsteam. -- Was having a conversation with an old friend about that on XMas eve. He says the new "hipster" beer replacing PBR is the return of National Bohemian Lager. I hadn't seen it i years. He said some douche bag even dressed up as the winking guy at a Halloween party he attended this year.

Worst Belgian beer ever made. 



Heh there's a bar around here that does a "Beer National Championship" set up like the NCAA brackets.  Stella wins every year because all the girls vote for it.

Not m'ettes with actual knowledge, just the local liberal college chicks.  And their girlfriends.

They still make Schlitz?

I'll be damned, you must be up north.

Nope, I live 35 minutes outside New Orleans.  Its not easy to find but a few independent grocery stores sell the 60s formula Schlitz. A few bars in NOLA started serving it from the tap.  I've also seen it in Los Angeles and I think Denver on a couple of business trips I've been on recently.  Kansas City has it too.

More likely MTSU - the school is huge, and continuously expanding, to the point that it can rightly be considered Murfreesboro, above and beyond the regular inhabitants.  Nashville is not so much a college town...Vandy et al do not have the student populations to make much of a difference.

As to the second part, yes, but there's never enough.

What motivates you to continually post comments in this place disparaging the regulars, and their beliefs (which are not monolithic, but neither are your continued inanities)?  Clarify, further, why you continue to do so, considering that you have a) changed no minds, b) will change no minds, regardless of your message, if one exists in some coherent form outside this place, and c) you are generally reviled and unwanted here.  What motivates a person such as you?

That's certainly a good bit of it, true.  Remington didn't establish a market, either in the civvy or military, strongly enough to establish standards, so we ended up with SPC and SPCII.  The well-established .243 already does everything the 6.8 was intended to do, so when the opportunity to kill it was offered, the offer was accepted, indirectly, by DPMS, CMMG, et al.

For every mile walked drunk, turns out to be eight times more dangerous than the mile driven drunk. To put it simply, if you need to walk a mile from a party to your home, you’re eight times more likely to die doing that than if you jump behind the wheel and drive your car that same mile.

A reprobate "friend" of mine, was walking/hitchhiking down the road from a bar barely 1/10th of a mile from my house when he got hit by a car. The driver stopped and my "friend's" buddy beat the tar out him. The driver was arrested for DUI, the other guy was arrested for assault and my "friend" spent the next  six months in a hip cast.

A similar thing happened to someone I didn't know but lots of my college friends knew. He died.

It seems like most drunk pedestrians are killed by drunk drivers.

We had a trainee on watch from management who was going up for his SRO license. We all sat around and had him convinced that wifey's loved it if you went home off of graveyards and woke them up to "get some".

I made a 3 minute drive to downtown, parked in my usual space, and watched the fireworks with about 50' of elbow room between me and the next guy on the lawn.

It would have been perfect if the friggin mayor hadn't cheaped the hell out of us.

Jacksonville has always put on tremendous fireworks displays. It has been a point of pride to have folks from much larger cities such as NY and Chicago ooooh and ahhhh and tell us they've never seen a better show. This year, it was the equivalent to a small town carnival show.

Very sad.

604 CJ try swordfish steaks.  Grilled are great, cook 'em the same way as the tilapia.  If they have any swordfish shipped out there in the heartland.  Kidding, I'm sure they do.

Pro tip:  Do.  Not.  Overcook.

639 All that you have to do to lose weight is eliminate all forms of added sugar, dextrose, high fructose, etc., mostly in processed foods.  Whole foods (not the chain) are best.
I went from just under 270 to 210 in less than a year while stuffing my face and not increasing exercise.
Natural sugars in fruits nuts and vegs are fine.
As are lean meats, potatoes, rice. You can find fresh breads without sugar but it's tricky.
It's actually better to be eating constantly.
That is the absolute truth, but I did it because I had to.

688 Mrs. bilderberger and just got home from visiting our son, DIL, and GKs in Toledo. We hit the turnpike toll booth at the Cleveland exit at 12:01. As I handed the ticket and fare to the attendant, I asked her if it was free since we were the first car of 2012. She said "Sorry, I can't do that. Please wait a minute." Then she started talking on the phone. I figured it out real quick. The turnpike rates go up this year. So I said to her, "You aren't going to tell me that I drove the speed limit the whole way, and it's going to cost me?" She grinned, still listening on the phone. Finally she smiled and said that the old fair still applies, lifted the gate, and cheerfully said, "Have a great year!" I did have a backup plan, though. The ticket I pulled when I got on still had the old rates listed.

Ha, Thor has a very pompous, upstanding, Golden Boy of an older brother, but he is also very rational.

He has Moronish tendencies, of course ( his politics are perfect, he does drink though he seldom gets drunk and he loves boobehs) but he's kind of serious minded. Opposites really do attract.

I am not sure he entirely approves of my being here, but he has reaped a multitude of benefits from it, lol. You should have seen his face when I first came out with "boinked her in her squeakhole". He was the one who informed me that squeakhole, it didn't mean what I thought it did!

Posted by: yankeefifth at January 01, 2012 01:28 AM (loM0R)

Two completely different aircraft for two completely different missions. The Tomcat's job was to loiter at altitude and launch missiles at Russian Bear bombers while mixing it up with the Soviet fighters of it's day. The Hornet's job is to self-escort on bombing missions and mix it up with the newer fighters.

A Tomcat will lose playing the Hornet's game, if a Tom gets in low and slow with a Hornet it is going to get smoked. BUT! if the Tom driver is smart (and you don't last long if you aren't) he will start at long range and use the range of that awesome Tomcat radar to his advantage, zorch in hot and launch on the Hornets before they ever realize he's there. The Tom could also drop bombs, but they weren't as good at it.

Moot point now, of course. The Tomcat is gone now, replaced by the E/F Hornet, which is a fine and capable aircraft.

You don't offend me at all, Rum! It's a fair question.

 I am perhaps overstating David's "botheration" for effect. He is not jealous-jealous. When I first started posting on the ONT and saw how I was getting, I let him read what I posted. He just shook his head and told me not to be shocked if people thought I was a whore!  And when I told him we got warned a few weeks back, he got to say I told you so!

Now, he really is sort of weirded out by the fact that I converse with people named Berserker and yankeefifth, but I he isn't worried I am going to run off with them; I think he just thinks I am a damn dork with no real life. Which is true.

He really was bothered by my friend's son, but that's another issue altogether.

And Rum, never worry about offending me or telling me to STFU, or that I am getting to be too vulgar.

Posted by: yankeefifth at January 01, 2012 01:45 AM (loM0R)

Higher, better at certain flight envelopes, much faster (especially the Delta Toms, what a great airplane that was!) better at high-speed turns but a pig down low and slow. Hornets are greatly easier to maintain, mostly because the accessibility of the parts in the avionics bays and the quick-change mounting points on it's motors; the Tomcat took twice as long for each maintenance task, in the case of the avionics because of the sheer number of fasteners on it's panels.

Actually, they were *great* at it, and had a shitload of ordinance capacity, *but* they were never fully configured for it (avionics upgrades, hardpoint upgrades).

I believe there were some successful missions in GW1, or so I was told.

I am a Tomcat fanboy, though, so take it for what it's worth. I admit the airframes were just getting old (they took a beating, though). Sick to death they got cut up.

Posted by: Merovign, Dark Lord of the Sith at January 01, 2012 01:45 AM (bxiXv)

I wouldn't say they were "great" at it. They were adequate, and could be very good with laser guided weapons. They could carry a bigger bomb load than the Hornet, but not as big as the Super Hornet. The Tomcat was an exceptional long range intercept aircraft, which was the mission it was designed for, and it could self-escort on it's bombing runs.

I'm not a Tomcat fanboy, just a maintainer who worked on the weapons systems for both the Alpha and Delta Toms, including a stint at Pax River where we tested various weapons for separation checks, to include putting bombs on target. The Tom was good at it, but not great. The Hornet is a precision bomber, the Tomcat was a ball park bomber, but when you are putting 2K worth of explosives on targets in the ballpark is all you really need. They had LANTIRN pods for the precision work.

It was a beautiful airplane, and part of it's beauty as a bomber is that it could get in really really fast, drop it's bombs and then turn around and shoot a motherfucker in the face. The E/F Hornet is almost as good at it, but not quite. The E/F Hornet is a better precision bomber, though, but who really needs precision when you have frikkin laser beams to do that for you? I loved the Tom, but it was a pain in the ass to maintain. Damn but it was a sharp looking airplane, especially zorching along at speed with the wings pulled back.

881 The funny thing about the F-8 was the way the wings lifted up for launch. It was called the last gunfighter because it's primary attack weaponry was guns, and it had a lot of them. It could and did carry missiles, though, mostly Sidewinders.

Posted by: GGE, Exclusive Member of the ONT at January 01, 2012 02:25 AM (yh0zB) I saw two of 'em over lake Tahoe (Reno air show) many years ago, low enough to leave rooster-tails flying out of the water. I am positive someone was yelled at afterward, probably with a wink. One at the show came in low over the runway (Delta I think) and almost came to a stop nose-up before launching (what looked like) vertically and disappearing in about 30 seconds. I'm sure it wasn't actually vertical, but it was damned impressive.

Posted by: GGE, Exclusive Member of the ONT at January 01, 2012 02:27 AM (yh0zB) The funniest thing about that is that *everybody* talks about the F8/F4 transition like it was the *end* of gunfighting fighters, when it was just a dip in the road. After the F4, they said, "shit, we needed the guns after all," and fighters like the F15, F16, F14, etc., have significant gun capability (though they still depend more on missiles, largely because the best gunfight is one where the other guy is dead before he sees you).

900 What should Robert get tattooed across his bum?

*insert random 'insert' joke here*.

I'm not a fan of tattoos, primarly because when people get them, they forget that skin loses its elasticity over time and all you end up with several years later are markings that could have been made with a 6th grader wielding a black marker. 

But at least a butt tattoo isn't readily visible, so that has a bit going for it location-wise.

Hair bands are dudes who raided their girlfreind's wardrobe and makeup, and sit around singing  gay songs about the chicks whose wardrobe they raided.

Metal bands are dudes who write songs about raiding those dude's castles, drinking their booze, and stealing those girlfriends.

I hate consoles, though, largely because of the complete lack of the ability to point naturally. Everybody moving in console games looks like they're drunk or retarded or something, no precision, slow reaction. There is a reason people are terrified of PC users getting mixed in with console users in deathmatch games, and it's not the foul language.

1039 I mean, I'd notice it freezing up, but other than that, I think I'd just think that's the way the game was, if any that makes sense. I have never played a game before. Posted by: Arkansas Metal Chick AKA Tammy al'Thor \m/ at January 01, 2012 03:44 AM (SsG4J) Broken quests, quest items you can't drop from broken quests hogging your limited inventory, companion AI as dumb as a post - and unlike PC you can't fix any of it with the console. Then again, it was weeks before I could get it running, and it's still not stable. I'm more pissed about Bethesda's bad showing and attitude than the bugs, as bad as they are. Their tech support was basically outsourced to their customers, and I consider that a Capital-A Asshole move on their part.

as a matter of fact we kinda are mildly buzzed. she just went to bed.

sadly kittys passing is true. i wish it wasnt with all my heart. sleeping is hard to do without her in my arms. today i spent watching animated movies and eating things like grilled cheese sammitches and nachos. i didnt have it in me to do much. with this cold on top i feel like someone kicked the stuffing outta me.

1058 Speaking of which, is a specific point to the game? What is the ultimate goal? Is there a monster to kill or something? Or is that. like, sooo 20th century gaming? There is a "main quest," and then there are "faction quests" like the Imperial/Stormcloak, guilds, Mage college, assassin quests, etc. Then there are scores/hundreds of city, character, and random quests, places to explore, etc. Some people just play the main quest, the game is not that long. To do *everything* that isn't mutually exclusive in the game would take a long, long time. You can even play for a hundred hours or more and ignore the main quest entirely. I really just want to tame a dragon, catch Gushie a Shadowmare, go in the rooms and read all the books, and find a nice mountain glade with a nearby cave to fix up. Maybe kick some bad guy butt now and then. And ogle Nords. Can't tame a dragon, you have to kill them if you follow the main quest. Shadowmere is part of the Dark Brotherhood assassin / kill everybody quest. There are a lot of books to read, like in previous games. You can only fix up the houses they let you buy. The first one (for most people) is kind of hilarious. It's freaking snow-land and it has holes in the roof? Yawhat? Maybe I can catch me a Nord and lure him back to my cave. You can get married to certain characters, but there's not that much story to it. You just have a short conversation, run off to get married, and one of you moves into the other's house.

Speaking of drunk cities and weird New Year's celebrations, I'm from Philly, and I'm stunned that we didn't the top 10 inebriated list. If they just narrowed the list to sports fans, we'd be right there. Anyway, the town will be pretty drunk today. as we have the final Eagles game of the year, and the Mummers Parade, which is our entry into the weird New Year celebrations. The parade is 99.9 percent white working class men, who proceed to either: A) drink heavily, march 3 miles into center city, then drink some more, all while wearing face paint, a wig and a dress, or: B) drink moderately, wear costumes full of feathers and sequins, play banjo versions of pop songs while marching those same 3 miles, and then drink some more.

I'm half lit now as I post this. I'm supposed to be at the parade starting point in 2 1/2 hours. So much beer, so little time.

Happy New Year, morons! Hopefully we're into the final countdown of the SCOAMF disaster....

I submit, civilian rifles have undergone significant advance over the last 100 years.

One reason being, manufacturing tolerances have improved by a factor of 10 or more.

Proof of Theory: Could the best rifle of 1912 compete against the best rifle of 2012?

1113 Geez, I black out for just a minute and someone has changed the clocks and there's 600 new posts.  WTF!

1114 I'm having a bit of a moral conundrum.  My wife and I are doing clean-up from last night and not much else today, so we figure we'd do a movie marathon.  She has seen neither the Star Wars movies nor Lord of the Rings.  Which should I go with?  (Note: the Star Wars movies would be seen in this order: 4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 3.)

1116 hoss,

what is the moral part?

Posted by: yankeefifth at January 01, 2012 09:01 AM (loM0R)

It's more just an attempt to describe the utter confusion as to which to pick.  That, and 12 hours of movie is easier to handle than 24.  We do have work tomorrow.

1117 @1140: do Lord of the Rings and Star Wars 4, 5, and 6. Avoid Lucas's post-traumatic head injury "prequels" at all costs. Yes, they really ARE so bad.

I thought 3 was tolerable, but yeah, I'm actually a bit on the same page.  Wait til kids for the newer ones, since kids don't care about garbage.

I'm also happy I have the DVDs with the original cuts as an extra.  They weren't remastered, but they are the Star Wars I remember.

1122 Hoss, if you have Star Wars on Blu-Ray, Episode III has the best visuals/sound.  I'd skip I and II though.

1123

I'd go with Star Wars. Life is filled with Star Wars illusions.

Though 4-5-6 might just take care of 99 % of those...

1124 Crazy gold miser on Fox, btw...

Wow, it's almost like nobody likes the pre-quels.

Go figure.

1126 Morning all and a Happy New Year

1127 I watched the Lord Of The Rings trilogy plus Precious Fragmentation episode of Big Bang theory yesterday/last night.

I quite enjoyed them although there were several times I wanted to yell at the tv "Stop leaving the ring bearer by himself"!

1131 I am living the 'embrace your hangover' from the moron posted drinking rules. The fog is burning off slow today.

1132 Jumbo, I'm sure he was thinking about the hills, but now the firebugs have just started in on lighting up the people. Creepy.

Posted by: kbdabear at January 01, 2012 01:49 AM (Y+DPZ) I thought the same thing...maybe it's some "youth" that shall not be named.
