HAPPY NEW YEAR

by Bunk X ( 100 Comments › )
Filed under OOT at January 1st, 2013 - 12:13 am

I wasn’t notified that a New Year’s Eve thread was missing in the queue, so bear with us as we update LIVE ON THE OVERNIGHT OPEN THREAD!

Update 1: We are updating in Real Time. This is what it takes to put up a thread.

Update 2: Curly, Moe, Larry, Shemp… name the others. I dare you.

Update 3: [deleted]

Update 4: Here’s a nice Winter Holiday Song by Jonathan and Darlene Edwards.

Update 5: Apparently some folks don’t like the sublime artistry of J&D Edwards, so (by Calo’s request) here is Redman and Methodman from September 2012.

Update 6: Happy New Year to the one who sent me this pic and dared me to post it. We wish you a full recovery.

Update 7: We’ve got snacks on the Rec Room counter,  so help yourselves.

Update 8: POTATO BUG!

Update 9:  Osprey’s boot drop.

FINAL UPDATE for the 31 December 2012 OVERNIGHT OPEN THREAD

Most all of we must realize that none of us would be here without the help of one man. A big man. A blogging man. A man who knows what it’s like to cut and paste with his bare hands. A man who stabs his friends in the back without remorse, and brags about it. A fabricator of lies who unashamedly gloats about his failures. A bra-snapping twitter warrior of a man who Andrew Breitbart kindly referred to as “fuckface.”

As another year comes to a close, let’s give a big wad of righteous kudos to Rodan, Savage, Coldwarrior and M for keeping the Blogmocracy Torch burning. They deserve it.

Happy New Year to All!

    Top Scientific Discoveries of 2012

    Wired has discovery of Higgs Boson as #1 but I missed that it had been confirmed.

    But I COMPLETELY missed this one and my head just exploded.

    Quantum Teleportation Distance Record Broken
    Over the summer, two teams of researchers, one from China and the other from Austria, broke a world record by teleporting quantum particles more than 50 miles through the open air. This little trick involves entangling two particles, like photons, so that they both have the exact same properties. Using a third particle, the characteristics of one of these photons are beamed to a distant location, creating a remote copy.

    Scientists now think they will one day be able teleport particles to a satellite in space and then beam them back to any location on Earth. Such technology could allow spies to pass unbreakable codes back and forth and might one day form the backbone of a quantum internet. China plans to test this possibility with a dedicated quantum information satellite, to be launched in 2016, while other countries are racing to make sure they don’t fall too far behind on this important technology.

    Ok, then…no more conference calls

    Well, as much as I enjoy these holidays and am sincerely grateful for them -- I’m glad this season is effectively over.

    I’m particularly grateful 2012 is over. The worst year politically for our country in my lifetime, bar none (and yeah, I did lose friends in ‘Nam).

    I pray for better times in 2013 and I am hopeful. A lot of that comes from the people here who give me courage to keep up the fight and have absolute clarity for why it can be no other way.

    So, thank you everyone. Of the many blessings I count in my life, you guys are far from the least.

    Thank you.

    Happy New Year and may God bless us, each and every one.

    Well, assuming it gets through the House, it puts off the end of the “Bush tax cuts” for 2 months for those making < $ 450 K/year, stops the sequestration cuts (mostly to the military), and halts the death tax increase. Now whether that actually does any good in the long run is yet to be seen. A two-month delay in the expiration of the "Bush tax cuts" will cover all the scheduled income I now have on line for 2013, at least, so there is that.

    Never got this mad at renters

    He has been charged with murdering 19-year-old Derrick Thompson, and his girlfriend, Alivia Welch, 18.

    Mr Thompson’s mother, Susan Johnson, survived Saturday’s shootings by playing dead after she was shot.

    The 44-year-old, who shared the Biddeford flat with the two victims and her six-year-old son, said she had hidden behind a Christmas tree.

    Mr Pak allegedly told police he spared the boy’s life but thought he had killed the three adults, AP reported.

    Police had been called to the home after Mr Thompson reported Mr Pak was threatening him and banging on windows, but they left when the teenager told them he did not fear his landlord.

    Moments later, they received a call from Ms Johnson telling them of the shootings.

    They had reportedly been arguing over late rent, shovelling snow and parking cars in the drive, police said.

    They show up in the daytime too sometimes. If you leave pet food outdoors (generally a bad idea) it attracts them.

    Sometimes they simulate being diseased, such as by drooling (a form of “playing possum”) so that predators will avoid contact with them.

    The US House of Representatives has approved a bill seeking permission to grant guided missile frigates to a number of countries, including Turkey — a close ally of the United States.

    The bill was submitted to the House of Representatives on Monday and passed. It authorizes President Barack Obama to grant the provision of guided missile frigates to Turkey along with Thailand and Mexico.

    The bill sparked fury and elicited a harsh reaction from the Washington-based Hellenic-American Leadership Council (HALC), which worked to prevent the provision of naval vessels to Turkey, which is at odds with Greek Cyprus and Greece on a number of maritime issues in both the Aegean Sea and the east Mediterranean.

    Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, introduced the bill to the House on Dec. 11.

    The motion requires Senate approval to come into effect. As part of the final step, if President Obama acts under the motion, Turkey will receive the USS Halyburton (FFG-40) and the USS Thach (FFG-43) ships

    Good Hangover Morning to all and a wish for a Happy New Year.

    I just hope to see New Years day 2014 without the shooting having started. On the other hand if the shooting is going to start, let it be now while my Grandchildren are still too young!

    @ AZOlddog:

    Let’s hope we can get out of this mess without general shooting. I’m just not that good a shot.

    I don’t have a hangover, unless you count my share of the national debt.

    They don’t make any cures for that one.

    Can I get The Mighty Geo (now 17 years old) up to 42 K total miles by Friday evening, or will that have to wait until February? The excitement is building…

    Interesting to see the reactions to the launch of ‘Breitbart Sports.’

    I for one welcome it, but it will be a challenge.

    Even if I weren’t a sports fan, I believe I’d still think it a worthwhile endeavor. Sports media is no exception to Progressivism.

    If we’re going to win American minds, we must go where they are.

    The strong reactions against this are a bit confusing and alarming to me.
