Overnight Open Thread (12 Jun 2015)

This about sums up America today.


Race

It is a good question. If I can be whatever gender I want to say I am, why can't I be whatever race I want to be? This could come in handy for my kids to nab some scholarships.

Disaster Pron

Man I need a smoke after reading what would happen after the end of San Andreas movie.

Long term, the possibility is that America will be a more interesting place, with a giant island just off the west coast, with many hundreds of miles of new shoreline for developing. But in the near term? We'd be looking at on the order of ten million dead pretty much instantly... with perhaps a few dozen million more deaths in the months that follow due just to the basic effects of the quake. This does not take into account the deaths that will be due to the crop failures in the Midwest due to the ash darkened skies and increased radiation due to the India-Pakistan nuclear war, the Israeli-Iranian nuclear exchanges, the burning of the Korean peninsula, China going after the Japanese and the Russians invading Europe. Millions elsewhere will likely die due to the prompt stoppage of American economic and humanitarian assistance.

Movie Quotes

Tax Protest

Well this is different. Salzburg brothel offers free sex in tax protest.

Policing

It's what you would expect when you adopt liberal ideas of governing (see Detroit, etc.). Crime spike could throw police reform efforts in doubt.

Luxury Tank

Needs some weaponry.

Turf Wars

So the same folks who most likely voted for Obama (who is making a bid to diversify wealthy neighborhoods) are pissed at George Lucas for essentially doing the same thing.

Cyber Attack

One must assume every government agency network has been penetrated. We should probably run that demo software that found these two hacks on other systems. If you are on the list of victims for this, it is best to assume that the Chinese have a dossier on you now and will look to exploit you at some point. Or the Chinese will sell your info to someone else that will have other uses for you or your information. Make sure you change any of your password reset information that may be contained in your SF-86 forms.
