Overnight Open Thread (16 Sep 2016)

Look, if the FBI couldn't bother to press charges against Clinton with all the evidence available, how will they ever get enough to build a legal case against Russian hackers? Especially if they use the "reasonable prosecutor" standard they've established.

Climate Change

Americans not willing to pay much to battle climate change. That's because it's a fools errand. The climate is gonna do what it wants to do.

Freezing Means Melting

Heh. The Polar Ocean Challenge: "We were lucky to get through."

For climate alarmists, freezing means melting. The were held up for over a month by excess ice in the Northeast Passage, and only got through because a storm pushed the ice off-shore. Then they raced to get through the Northwest Passage, and made it by a matter of hours before it froze up.

Their conclusion : "very obvious melting"

Blue Stahli

OK, this is gonna be my workout music for the week. You'll get a speeding ticket if you drive to it.

MSM Enraged

Just furthers the image of the MSM being biased. Press enraged over Trump. Funny I don't remember hearing about the Clinton Press Pool being "enraged" over Clinton's campaign banning certain reporters, locking them in closets or barricading them from Hillary in public places. Sure, they posted some politely worded warnings demanding access but I don't seem to recall feeling that they were outraged. More like they were pleading with their queen to please, please let them have some scraps from the table so they can appear to be doing their job or something. Outrage? Yeah, not so much.

Hunter Troop

Norway's 'Hunter Troop' is the world's first all-female special operations unit.

candidates must complete modules in Arctic survival, counterterrorism, urban warfare, long-range patrols, and airborne operations. According to the Norwegian Special Operations Forces Command, only 13 of the unit's 317 candidates made it through the Jegertroppen course in 2014 - a 96% attrition rate that is similar to the Forsvarets Spesialkommando's. 2015 posted similar numbers.

Eagle vs Drone

Action occurs at 1:50 timeframe.

Movie Soundtracks

This is actually a pretty good question. I can't think of a theme either. Why aren't Marvel Film scores more memorable?


AI software found to be able to identify people in blurred images.


Obama's U.S. a pushover for foreign powers, critics say. No shit?
