Overnight Open Thread (21 Oct 2016)

Perhaps threatening a cyber attack last Friday wasn't too smart. Cyber attacks disrupt Twitter, Netflix, Spotify, and more.


Pacific Pivot

I'd say the Pacific Pivot has failed. U.S. has few good options for Philippines' Duterte.

Signs of Quitting

13 signs that someone is about to quit.

Halloween Costumes

Gary Sinise Foundation

Gary Sinise is awesome. Actor's charity set to build 'smart home' for injured Ballwin officer.

Standards

I don't understand this decision. Standards are either required or they are not. If your "elective" transformation prevents you from maintaining standards, you shouldn't continue on. Period. Or just get rid of the standards for all. Transgender U.S. Air Force airmen (can you say that still?) can now skip physical fitness tests.

Guzzle Buddy

Oh my. Guzzle Buddy, a handy device that transforms an entire bottle of wine into a personal drinking glass.

Camouflage

Yes, everything is racist today. British Army accused of racism after offical tweet shows soldier wearing 'blackface' camouflage in jungle. Love this response.

"If you think camouflage is racist, please wear a hi-vis jacket next time you're being shot at," one message read.

College offers young people money to have sex on camera. Do you really need to film people having sex to convince people that having sex with a condom is OK? I would think actual news headlines would be more effective. Like this one. STD cases hit an all-time high in the US.
