Overnight Open Thread (30 Oct 2015)

So for those of you going to some costume parties, what are you going as?


Drone Lawfare

Update on the Kentucky drone shoot down story. Judge rules man had right to shoot down drone over his house.

Speed Camera Danger

Not surprising. You see the same thing here with red light cameras. UK analysis identifies speed camera danger as there is an eleven fold increase in panic breaking within 50 feet of camera.

Hornet Ball 2015

Our Future

American millennials are stupid.

the study’s conclusion states "the comparatively low skill level of U.S. millennials is likely to test our international competitiveness over the coming decades… that future looks bleak."

If that's not depressing enough for you, then here's the 2016 Military Power index.

Winter Update

Substantial increase in Siberian snow cover bodes well for east coast snow potential.

Weird Al

Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey's fighting tips.

How to Win a Bar Fight

"Grab a chair. That's what my mom (judo champion AnnMaria De Mars) told my sister when she went off to college. She didn't give her advice on how to do laundry. She said, 'Listen: You're a small person, so if shit goes down at a bar, you grab a chair and you just start swinging it around.' She never taught us how to put makeup on, she never taught us how to cook, but she did teach us that if you get in a bar fight, you grab a chair and swing it around."


VW Fraud

Ok, this is getting a bit ridiculous. VW emissions fraud will cause about 60 premature deaths in US. I'll go one further. VW's driven by drunk illegal aliens will cause even more premature deaths.

Halloween Fireballs

We're in the viewing window for the Taurid meteor swarm.

However, no viewing chance for the SMOD tease tomorrow unless you have a decent telescope and some skill.

Insurance Rates

You're already paying for global warming. Insurance companies raise prices because of exaggerated global warming threat.

Hollyweird

Boo hoo Harvey Weinstein. You're only pissed at Tarantino because it might hurt your bottom line, not at what he actually did.
