Overnight Open Thread (15 Apr 2016)

Lies progressives have told me about income and taxation.


Super PACs

You know, this discussion on Super PACs would be a lot better if it didn't focus so much on GOP donors. So where are all the uber rich liberals like Silicon Valley folks and Hollywood weirdos? Plus, where's the discussion of union donations where in 2012, they donated over $141 million mostly to Democrats.

Rooney Rule

Sure, why not? The world is becoming a more dangerous place so let's focus on gender and skin color vice you know, actual requirements for the job. Recipe for success right? Pentagon proposal on 'Rooney Rule' for minority officers raising internal concerns.

One-Liners: After The Kill

E-Cig Scare Tactics

Um, they sure do try to make it seem like e-cigs are exploding all over the place but the reality is most do not. The ones that seem to be exploding are ones that are heavily modded or shoddily constructed, not the mainstream ones most are using. I've vaped for 7 plus years now and have never had an issue.

Recycling

Hmmmm. Wonder how much it cost to extract? Apple's recycling efforts are saving it a fortune.

The firm pulled 61,357,800 pounds of raw materials out of discarded devices, including 2,204 pounds worth of gold. Cult of Mac consulted the day's metal prices and found that the gold alone was worth $40 million. In addition, the company pulled out 3 million pounds of copper (worth $6.4 million) and 4.5 million pounds of aluminum ($3.2 million).

Naked 3D Fitness Tracker

Um, I'm pretty sure this will be targeted by hackers in no time. Naked 3D fitness tracker, a smart mirror and app that tracks a 3D model of a person's body over time. Then again, your smart TV, your cell phone and anything already connected to the internet is spying on you already.

Emojis

\_(ツ)_/. Study finds we have no idea what we're saying when we use emojis. I refuse to use 'em.

Science

Han Solo

Ok, they're taking this female lead only thing a bit too far with these new Star Wars movies. I keed, I keed. It's just a cosplay outfit. Here's who is likely to play young Han Solo.

Corgi Police Dogs?

Wut? Will Corgis make good police dogs?
