Overnight Open Thread (14 Oct 2016)

So this survey reveals that Americans fear government corruption the most. If this is the case, how in the hell is Hillary leading (besides having Trump as her opponent)? Oh that's right, the media is burying Hillary Clinton's sins.


NHL vs NFL

Psst, NFL, this is how you do it. Dallas Stars will honor slain police officers with helmet decal.

Aircraft Carrier Maintenance

The scale of aircraft carrier maintenance is ridiculous. Pretty cool video at the link.

'Heathen' in 21 Styles

Solar Storm Risk

We now know which parts of the US are at the highest risk from a devastating solar storm. It's only partial but interesting.

Hollyweird

He's one to talk. Misogynist Russell Brand has no right to lecture Trump on women.

Office Dos and Don'ts

College

I'm an English Major who just got fired as a barista. Here's where I went wrong.

I've concluded it probably wasn't a good idea for me to go to college. Oh, I'm grateful for many things - the aforementioned Great Books program, the friends I made, and so forth. But looking back, I can't avoid the conclusion that if I had learned to think a little sooner I would have realized that I shouldn't have gone to college at all when I did.

I would have been better off going into the military or getting a job right off the bat. That way I would have had the kind of skills necessary to find the kind of jobs I want. College, for me, was unnecessary. Many people have to go into debt to attend a school where, instead of teaching you to think logically, they teach you how much the world owes you. It's a liability.

Cyber Strike

On the face of it, I think it's pretty stupid since our own defenses across many sectors suck and there will be blowback big time if we attack. CIA prepping for possible cyber strike against Russia.
