ElectroBSD - The might to deliver onions - Free as in free (electro) beer and freedom
Fork of FreeBSD with interesting features like:

"The unencrypted boot pool (and the keyfile) can be destroyed with cloudiatr after the system has booted.

An attacker with physical access to the system who does not have the skills or the time to read out the memory while the system is running, will not be able to read the encrypted data on disk after shutdown, even if the passphrase is known. ElectroBSD experts will gladly try (and write bills for their service) anyway."

What have I done
You attempted to reach stribika.github.io, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as a shape shifter humanoid reptile alien. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake (and definitely harmful) version of stribika.github.io. You should not proceed.

Why Trump? | George Lakoff
"How do the various policy positions of conservatives and progressives hang together? […] The answer came from a realization that we tend to understand the nation metaphorically in family terms: We have founding fathers. We send our sons and daughters to war. We have homeland security. The conservative and progressive worldviews dividing our country can most readily be understood in terms of moral worldviews that are encapsulated in two very different common forms of family life: The Nurturant Parent family (progressive) and the Strict Father family (conservative)."

"Empirical research has shown that conservatives tend to reason with direct causation and that progressives have a much easier time reasoning with systemic causation. The reason is thought to be that, in the strict father model, the father expects the child or spouse to respond directly to an order and that refusal should be punished as swiftly and directly as possible.

Many of Trump’s policy proposals are framed in terms of direct causation."

Imagine you have a vulnerable procedure (e.g. Heartbleed), and you want to check if it was embedded in some binary in your organization, but don't know what compiler was used, or whether the code was patched. Other use-cases can be clone detection for reducing code-base maintenance code-reuse or for identifying IP theft, etc. That's where Esh comes in!
