Welcome to the next installment of stuff you find weird, random or interesting and wanted to share.

am gonna add one thing by noting how exclusion ain't so much protection o' innocence or future innocence. rules 'which set guilty free when govt violates rules ain't so much 'bout protecting the innocent as is 'bout protecting rights of everybody, innocent or guilty. is the kinda thing which should make gd happy 'cause makes rights more important than justice or even people. we go to great the lengths in this country to protect intangible ideals from government interference, even to the point we is protecting wrongdoers, evildoers, from the State.

HA! Good Fun!

Exactly correct. There are far too many examples of heavy handed abuse of the citizens by the US government. Frankly I am surprised this whole thing ended as peacefully as it did. It's hardly unheard of for Federal law enforcement is to shoot the suspects and all the witnesses. I

 



Geekscape Podcast - Recruiting a new co-host, Casper van Dien

 

Casper talks about working on the Sci-Fi classic ‘Starship Troopers’ and working with directing geniuses like Tim Burton and Paul Verhoeven! We also talk a bit about his own directing work and how he approaches it as an actor! And of course I’ve got to mention Casper’s appearances in two of my favorites: ‘Beast Master III’ and ‘Wing Commander IV’! The man has a ton of awesome sci-fi stories so sit back and enjoy!


I did find a little amusement in the "Okay, so WIng Commander IV. I took a job just to get Mark Hamill's autograph." aspect.

 



I had no idea he was in 4.

Trump lauded delivery of F-52s to Norway.

 

Is there an interdimensional rift we haven't heard about?

"Why is Death riding a flamingo?" was not a question I expected to ask today.

Clearly it's a Terry Pratchett based campaign.

I doubt anyone thought that in 98 :p

We still told people not to drink turpentine in 1998.

You know the false missile alert in Hawaii? Japan got hit with thier instance of it, and within days of the Hawaii one. http://www.cnn.com/2...intl/index.html

 

Unlike Hawaii, which took over a half hour to be corrected, this one got corrected within minutes.

I wonder if false alerts are somewhat common and are only now being reported on due to the political climate, or of there is something else going on. Is their system designed in tandem with the US or are they being set off by seismic activity, or is there really some sort of activity coming out of NK that is being tracked.

 

It's all very odd.

In both cases though, it was the civillian alert system screwing up, not the military/government screwing up. That article doesn't say why, but the NYT article does: https://www.nytimes....pe=sectionfront Like Hawaii, that case was someone 'accidentially operated the equipment', or in other words, 'pressed the wrong button'.

 

Stuff like military screwups or near-misses that you hear happened in the Cold War don't usually get revealed until years or decades later.

Given that so many people can't distinguish between reply and reply all, I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often.
