Overnight Open Thread (12 Feb 2016)

SMOD can't get here soon enough. Millenials prefer socialism over capitalism. Do they really look at Venezuela and think, man that is awesome! Are they wishing they had a big scoop of that here? Instapundit writes that support for Sanders may not mean full throated support for Socialism, just a search for something different.

the enthusiasm for Sanders may be as much a search for something different as it is an endorsement of Sanders' 1930s-era economic views. Given the failure of the two party establishments, it's not entirely surprising that young people are looking elsewhere.

This foray into socialism won't end well (it never does) when you factor in possible amnesty for folks that have fled socialist leaning countries and you don't try to Americanize them.


Climate Change

I think this ArsTechnica author would better understand why there is uneven education on climate change if she knew that the 97% scientist consensus (or 95% as she states) is BS and that most of their climate doom predictions fail. Maybe you can't get consensus on teaching this crap because it's all about profit and not science.

IllumiBowl

So is this something? I don't know. I like the challenge of aiming in the dark.

Stunt Double

Daisy Ridley's stunt double is pretty good.

Aviation Story

Here's how a KC-135 Stratotanker aircrew saved an F-16 Falcon pilot from ejecting over ISIL territory. I shudder to think of what would've happened if he had to bail out.

Cyber Defenses

So much for the pivot on cyber defense. Lawmakers unnerved by reports of new cyber breaches.

Adblock Plus

If you are running ABP, you might want to check your settings and opt out of their approved whitelist filter.

Time Capsule

Heh. Futuristic concept cars of the 1970-80s.


Happiness Minister

I'm surprised Obama hasn't named a happiness czar although he does have all of the media to make up happy stories about his administration and the direction this country is headed. Meet the UAE's first happiness minister. I had no idea this was a billet out there in the world. The Venezuela vice ministry of supreme social happiness has pretty much failed.

Selfies

The countries with the most selfie-related deaths.
