Open Thread!

Yes the "Open Thread".

The international, IMO approved, SOLAS compliant, universally recognized code used by bloggers who are engaged in a three front war against school, work, and writers block.

Here are some random linky bits, just in case, like me, you have nuthin'.

Suburban Banshee suggests that ISIS may not be as well read on their stated policy manual as they claim to be. 

Trigger Warning! Politix...Neo suggests that Boehner may not actually be vindictive...or an idiot

On a completely different note...Don links to an article which proposes that suggestions that our society has entered a slow decline may be erroneous.  
He also links to this thing that I can't spell

Juxtaposition.Greely is doing that thing he does

Wonderduck is unaware that it is not Saturday

Steven reminds us that opining on cartoons from time to time...doesn't contradict our assertions that we're not kids anymore.  

With that in mind...Medieval Otaku claims to have found the BEST BOXING ANIME EVER! It's hard to disagree.

Borepatch has video on steam, steel and DREADNOUGHTS!


Tam and others have thoughts on flag rank payola.

Dr Pournelle seems to be recovering from his stroke and is opining on current events again. Some of it is trigger worthy.

Dustbury...poor Dustburry

CDR Salamander on China and VietNam.


Meanwhile...In Gibraltar...

Finally, Tekalili...

3 No mention of Yemen? Or is that too mainstream.

You've got a blog or two, Pete.  Knock yourself out!

5 Not too mainstream, too involved and too depressing to do before a quiz.

6 Cost Guard released a video of a ferry pilot dittching a Cirrus because his ferry tank rig had a problem (most of those are installed into passenger seat and need pumping with a hand pump).
