Re: Towing the Lion

Sounds like a sweet deal to me.

That would be the best sick joke ever. One poster featuring him with the cast and the same one where he's been removed.

Re: Orange is the new President

As a minor nitpick to 'wellspring of all classifcation' I think (and I'm not a lawyer) that some stuff is automatically classified because it falls under a provision of the law (e.g. Atomic Energy Act), but the President or designee may, per the law decide to declassify or waive classification (the ...

Re: Orange is the new President

If the president gets wind of something and wants to see it, there's no legal authority to withhold it. However, access to classified material requires both the appropriate level clearance and the need to know. I can think of any number of specific bits of classified information POTUS arguably woul...

Re: Orange is the new President

How does the White House Counsel not yet have full clearance? Down in the trenches, it can take a full year to go from SF-86 (and its successors) submittal to final adjudication for TS/SCI. It was taking even longer than that during the mid 00s personnel surges. (and mismanagement, and bureaucratic...

Re: Mixed doubles curling and other stuff - Olympics thread

eh, there are team sports and so a logical delimeter for the teams is nation-state. (like it is for the world cup) (which I'm thinking you don't like either) What's annoying to me is that a nation that is banned is allowed to participate in team sports as a team , and not as the catch-all team like ...

Re: Does Elon's Musk stink?

It seems plausible to me that Musk's way could be cheaper, because of less you have overhaul between launches i.e. the shuttle SRBs landing in seawater after every use.

Re: Does Elon's Musk stink?

During the countdown to the launch, on the live stream, one wide shot (prob from aerial drone, but maybe stock footage) showed two tug-sized boats station keeping off the robo landing pad ship.
