Overnight Open Thread (13 Aug 2016)

Here's what the Pre Market Tobacco Application (PMTA) involves for e-cigs. All of this simply because a judge ruled that e-cigs were tobacco. Even though they don't have any tobacco.

Arms Dealing

CIA annex in Benghazi shipped arms from Libya to Syria; Clinton lied about it. OK, let's suppose that airtight proof comes up that Hillary was directly involved and had direct knowledge and/or directed said arms transactions. Does anything think that the Republicans have the balls to do anything about it that is meaningful?

Hollywood War Movies

Heh. 56 movie mistakes: The Longest Day.

GPS Jammers

It's too easy and cheap to do. GPS under attack as crooks, rogue workers wage electronic war.

Livestock Auctioneer Rappers

Bill Clinton Whining

In answer to your question Bill, yes there are 300 career diplomats who were on those emails that were careless with national security. It's simple. You aren't supposed to use personal email for official business. Period. The mere fact that they didn't report it is a violation in of itself.


Probably won't change the minds of those who believe chemtrails are nefarious. 'Chemtrails' aren't a thing: top scientists refute conspiracy theories. Of course they had to include that chemtrails may last longer because of climate change. If only these 'top scientists' would check their 'climate change' conspiracy theories.

Outside experts ding EPA fracking report's optimistic conclusions. That's rich. They're whining about the EPA not giving them enough quantitative information. Have these guys ever said the same thing about AGW or climate change crap?

Political correctness prevents advancement of science.

Not only do intellectuals refuse to abandon politically correct beliefs in the face of contradictory evidence, but simply questioning them can ruin a person's career. Lawrence Summers' tenure as president of Harvard was cut short because he suggested that there are intellectual differences between men and women. As a result of such punitive pushback, some researchers are afraid to investigate differences between male and female brains, which certainly exist. Without a doubt, this reticence is holding back the field of neuroscience.

A similar chilling effect can be seen in climatology. The only politically correct belief regarding the climate is that humans are 100% responsible for everything bad that happens and that the Four Horsemen are already marching toward Earth. Questioning that apocalyptic and unscientific belief has resulted in multiple researchers being labeled "climate deniers." Climatology would greatly benefit from the more skeptical approach of so-called "lukewarmers," but far too many are ostracized and demonized.


Scott Sterling is back and this time, he's playing volleyball.

MLB Team Names

Interesting. Some of these I never knew. The origins of all 30 MLB team names.


Need more of this. Meet the public university that actually has a surprisingly high number of Republican professors.

Getting Old

Man. 34 years ago today, Fast Times At Ridgemont High was released. I still love Phoebe (NSFW).

Now for the 'ettes, Sonny Bunch's Top 5 man crushes.
