Overnight Open Thread (22 Jul 2017)

I still think this is part of an effort to find out who the leakers in the IC are. Trump slams 'illegal' leak alleging Sessions discussed campaign with Russian envoy. I can totally see a IC person with access to intercepts that hates Trump seeing this come across their screen and think they hit the jackpot and must leak it to the press without verifying the document they are looking at. They can't resist the story as it too perfectly fits their narrative. Unfortunately for them, the access to such info would be limited and enables the leak hunters a smaller field to see who is violating their oath.


Dungeons & Dragons

Oh I remember the hours of planning with this stuff as a kid. New 'Dungeons & Dragons' site manages the rules so you can just play.

Dumb

Why Is Alcohol Content Referred To As Proof?

Floaters

I've had a few that have annoyed me at times over the years, but I don't think I'm quite ready to have them lazed yet. Laser blasts could finally remove those annoying squiggles in your vision.

Leaks

Top General says leaks to the NY Times are the reason ISIS leader al-Baghdadi escaped US forces and is likely still alive. Par for the course for the media. Of note, this was probably an attempt to fluff up the Obama administration at the time so they seemed like they were tough on terrorism.

Jobs

Hmmm. Retirement looms for me. I need to figure out what I'm going to do when I grow up. The 20 most in-demand jobs that pay more than $100,000.

Portable Torches

Yeah, I think I'd rather have a gun. Anti-pervert mini flamethrowers for women sold online in China.

The Tomcat

SR-71 Story

Heh. Here's an SR-71 story that'll make you laugh.

USS Gerald R. Ford

Yeah, we commissioned the USS Gerald R. Ford today but it is still far from ready for combat operations.
