Overnight Open Thread (5 Aug 2016)

Federal agency says wearing 'Don't Tread on Me' hat might be racist. Oh for crying out loud. Is the First Navy Jack next?

In other dumbass news, a feminist declares the invention of the alphabet the root of sexism, misogyny and patriarchy.


Maet Tribute Video

This was posted by ace earlier in the day but deserves some lovin' in the ONT. Great job by weirddave.

Super Lice

Mutant 'super lice' outbreak has now spread to nearly every state. Oh this is gonna fun for this school year.

Australia

Hopefully being a gun free zone works out for them. Australia is Islamic State's third top target in the West, US committee says.

Green Power

UCMJ

Heh. 8 military punishments that wouldn't fly in the civilian world.

Real World Education

I learned more at McDonald's than at college.

Legaspi suggests that when she was working at McDonald's, there were no trigger warnings before irate customers complained to her and no safe spaces to which she could retreat.

She correctly explains that if she complained to her boss that the fast pace of her work made her uncomfortable, he would have handed her a final paycheck and showed her to the door.

Roundabouts

Glad I never had to use this roundabout in my time overseas.

Poll Result

Not surprising. Most young Americans say parties don't represent them. Democrats still have the edge. If the Trumpers are hoping for third party help by siphoning off votes from Clinton, this does not bode well in that regard.

But for all the disenchantment, young adults across racial and ethnic groups are mostly unfamiliar with their alternatives. Seven in 10 say they don't know enough about Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson to have an opinion about him, and nearly 8 in 10 say the same about Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

Hollywood and Technology

Someday Hollywood will make an intelligent movie about technology and hacking. 'Jason Bourne' is embarrassingly dumb about tech.

Harley Quinn

Harley Quinn bodypaint. Impressive. Most impressive.
