Character Building - Futility Closet
A man gets well pummelled at a public school; is subject to every misery and every indignity which seventeen years of age can inflict upon nine and ten; has his eye nearly knocked out, and his clothes stolen and cut to pieces; and twenty years afterwards, when he is a chrysalis, and has forgotten the miseries of his grub state, is determined to act a manly part in life, and says, ‘I passed through all that myself, and I am determined my son shall pass through it as I have done;’ and away goes his bleating progeny to the tyranny and servitude of the long chamber or the large dormitory. It would surely be much more rational to say, ‘Because I have passed through it, I am determined my son shall not pass through it; because I was kicked for nothing, and cuffed for nothing, and fagged for everything, I will spare all these miseries to my child.’

Cards Against Humanity Saves America
So we’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built.

On Day 1, all Cards Against Humanity Saves America recipients will get an illustrated map of the land, a certificate of our promise to fight the wall, some new cards, and a few other surprises.

Game of Drones: Mexico’s Cartels Have a Deadly New Weapon
The aerial drone in the rear cargo bay was armed and ready to be deployed. Sitting in an open plastic case beside an AK47 assault rifle and spare clips. The 3DR Solo Quadcopter carried a shrapnel-filled IED that was in turn rigged to detonate by remote control.

It was the first time a weaponized Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) had been found in the hands of an organized crime group in Mexico.

“[Such] explosives and weapons are for the exclusive use of the Army,” said State Attorney Carlos Zamarripa

The world's biggest grave robbery: Asia’s disappearing WWII shipwrecks | World news | The Guardian
Experts said grave diggers might be looking for even more precious treasures – steel plating made before the nuclear testing era, which filled the atmosphere with radiation. These submerged ships are one of the last sources of “low background steel”, virtually radiation-free and vital for some scientific and medical equipment.

   Additionally, you may want to consider ignoring such catchphrases as “Please Govern Yourself Accordingly.” What does that mean anyway? Wouldn’t it be better to simply use English and say – – “if you do not respond, you will be sued.” I like that better; it is more direct and there is no doubt as to what the consequences will be if the opposing party fails to respond.

Amazon to end virtual textbook contract with UMass
The university received its guaranteed commissions of $375,000, $465,000 and $610,000 in the first three years of the contract with Amazon, according to university spokesman Daniel Fitzgibbons. Commissions have not exceeded those guarantees, Fitzgibbons added, though he declined to speculate on why Amazon ended their deal with UMass Amherst.
