Overnight Open Thread (13 May 2017)

Ah, I remember the days when it was a heinous crime to use a simple target symbol on a map to show where political battles would be fought ala Sarah Palin. Now those some folks who howled the loudest about that are very silent when actual violence and threats of violence is being brought to bear. Some examples.

Woman allegedly tried to run GOP Congressman off the road over his vote to repeal Obamacare.

Man gets physical with GOP Congressman at town hall.

Republican Congressman and his family receive death threats.

Ah the hypocrisy of the left. Their silence on this means they endorse it.


Artillery

Ah, the importance of artillery on the battlefield. Marines shed light on violent mystery deployment.

Game theory and North Korea. Conventional artillery and nuclear missiles in North Korea. Not sure I buy this type of extortion actually working, but an interesting read on the application of game theory with a real world problem.

Hit Points

I didn't know that D&D didn't include hit points (HP) when it started. The history of hit points.

Playing Bass With A Fidget Spinner

Gluten

I would think that if you're using meth, gluten would be the least of your concerns. Experts warn gluten found in meth could be hazardous to your health.

GDP

Putting America's large $18.6T economy into perspective by comparing US state GDPs to entire countries.

Ozzy Man

USS Indianapolis

I didn't know they still hadn't found her wreckage. Where was the USS Indianapolis when she was sunk?

Kill Switch

Interesting. How a $10.69 purchase may have stopped the global malware attack. I'm sure next time they'll leave that out.

Rape Culture

So is college rape culture fact or fiction? 89% of colleges reported zero campus rapes in 2015 but the media keeps trying to keep the 1 in 3 or 1 in 4 meme going even though that statistic has been debunked.
