« Strictly Rhetorical Question: Why Does the Media Not Report That ISIS Was Defeated in Iraq and Its Capital City of Raqqa in Syria Has Been Captured by US-Allied Troops? | Main | The Morning Report 12/15/17 »

The Force is With the ONT. Always

But I'm not, at least not initially. I'm at the new Star Wars film. I'm either going to post this early from my phone when the movie starts or have another COB put it up at 10.

Moron Investment Opportunity

Buffalo Bayou brewery offers investors free beer for life with $1k investment

Now before you get any ideas about breaking even on your first visit, it's one beer, per day, for life, at their Houston location. Still, might not be a bad investment if you live in the area. Figure a craft beer costs at least $4, in 250 days you're in the black. Assuming I live a normal lifespan, I'm sure I'll go out for drinks more than 250 times this week before I die, so, good deal.

Great Moments in Social Justice

Prof: Academic rigor reinforces 'power and privilege'

Alarming note: This is not some squishy humanities professor, this is an engineering professor. That's right, that's coming from the 'E' in STEM, oh boy.

Donna Riley calls for doing away with the notion of academic rigor entirely, suggesting that higher education pursue "other ways of knowing" in order to "build a community for inclusive and holistic engineering education."

Hey, what's the worst that could happen?

I hope "Professor" Donna Riley is underneath that.

Cry Havoc! And Let Slip The Dogs of Idiocy

This is Keyton Jones. This video went viral this past week:


Pretty heartbreaking stuff, I feel bad for the kid. So did everybody else, there was a tremendous outpouring of support, athletes and celebrities showed up at his school. Someone started a go-fund-me for a scholarship and raised $50K for his college education. Nice story.

And then some internet people dug into the mom's background, and came up with photos of her next to a Confederate flag.

The entire internet outrage machine slammed into reverse. The college fund was put on hold, can't give money to a kid whose parents are racist, oh no siree bob. People started attaching the athletes who had gone to visit the boy to make him feel better. Other people started attacking those attacking the athletes.

Then someone tweeted (completely without any province at all) that he wasn't being "bullied", he'd been attacked for calling some black children names. This was retweeted thousands of times, and has never had a shred of proof attached to it.

Stories come out claiming that his father was a white supremacist who is currently in jail and things ratcheted up another notch.

Accusation! Counter-accusation! Attack! Defend! Outage! Anger! Hysteria!

It's all so sadly predictable. The internet has many wonderful attributes, and it does much to enrich our lives. It's a valuable tool for humanity. And all that it asks in return is that we live 24/7 in the teeth of the mob, waiting for our turn on the crucible. Sometimes I ask myself if it's worth it.

And I wonder what a certain scared, fragile seventh grader, who has been completely forgotten by the mob as it frantically signals its virtue, would think.

Matt Walsh has some thoughts here


They Told Me That if New Neutrality Was Repealed I'd Lose My Fast Internet!

And they were right!: Broadband over wet string tested Comcast and Verizon are in a bidding war for the technology.

Hmmmm

This just popped up on my screen. I'm pretty sure there's a endless recursive loop in there somewhere.
