Overnight Open Thread (25 Feb 2017)

What a joke. Transgender boy wins controversial girls state title. I feel bad for the girls that were not afforded a fair match.


Situational Awareness

Always be aware of your surroundings and lucky for this guy, he was also armed. Armed robber shot in crotch by armed jogger.

Prison Reform

Well this is a total shocker. Not. Crime increasing in California after 'prison reform'. Throw in sanctuary cities, strict gun laws, and a lack of political support for the police, this is what you get.

Galactic Empire

This is one of my favorite tracks from this album.

ISIS

ISIS builds a quadcopter "bomber" with DJI drone and badminton supplies. Clearly time to declare a badminton free zone.

Mosul battle fuels anti-drone development. Lots of work has been happening in the area of anti-drone defense.

Ships

We really do need a discussion of what type of Navy we want. A 308-ship Navy to cost $566 billion, CBO estimates. 6 Ford class carriers? Carriers are awesome but our adversaries are getting better and better missile and targeting tech. I do agree with the attack submarine numbers. We really do need more.

Handshake Wars

Warning: F-Bombs galore.

Happy Ending Spider Story

This is one lucky kid. Boy survives bite from super deadly spider thanks to quick-thinking dad. Any guesses on what type of spider and where it occurred?

Dieting

Hmmm, interesting. A fasting diet could reverse diabetes and repair the pancreas, says new research.

Tesla and Unions

Of course he does. Elon Musk thinks unions are bad for Tesla.

But to sweeten over his workers, Musk assured his workforce that creature comforts were coming to the Fremont factory. Aside from a "really amazing party" he plans to throw once the Model 3 reaches volume production, the facility will also get things like free frozen yogurt stands and a Tesla electric pod car roller coaster for fun and cross-campus travel. Take that, boring parking shuttles.

Yeah, that's what people want.
