  1. Black Mirror Season 3 on Netflix

    San Junipero is an absolutely beautiful hour of television and much needed palette cleanser after Just Dance. Easily my favorite episode so far this season. 
  2.   yeah, fusion is kind of a cheat code for a LOT of the world's problems. We should know if in a few years if Lockheed is full of BS or not about theirs. 
  3. self driving cars that really work in all realistic conditions 
  4. good swerve for the comic readers there
  5. Black Mirror Season 3 on Netflix

    watched the first two, they were good but not as great as the first two seasons
  6. ~~Rate the last movie you watched~~

    Ghostbusters 2016   it was entirely ok, nothing more   5.5/10
  7.   http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2015/09/10/439190586/marine-corps-study-finds-all-male-combat-units-faster-than-mixed-units   Cold hard stats there comparing mixed and all male units.   Again if a female can physical perform the same as the males they should be allowed to do so it just that most cannot. In the anaerobic power test the top 25% of the females tested were overlapping with the bottom 25% of males.
  8. It is not about what the soldiers want it is about having people that are best able to execute the job at hand and that job at times will be literally kill or be killed, you do not want lowered requirements for that.   There are plenty of jobs in the military that do or at least should not have very high physical requirements. My cousin was in the navy for 20 years and I'm pretty sure she was overweight the entire time, there was no way she was going to carry 100lbs of gear up the side of the mountain but she didn't need to she was in signals intelligence and sat behind a computer for her entire career.   At the end of day there are some jobs in this world that have high requirements and lowering those can get people killed, combat infantry is one of those jobs. If a woman soldier can do the job as well as her male counterparts she should be allowed to do it but the majority of woman in the military and not going to be to do the same physical tasks as the men, that isn't sexism that is biology. Are there some women out there that can do it, I'm sure there are but it is going to be a small percent.    The biggest lie parents tell their children is that you can be anything you want when you grow up as long as put the work in, that just isn't true. If I trained harder than anyone ever I would not be good enough to play in the NBA, I do not have the athleticism at the genetic level for it. If I studied harder than anyone I would not be the next Einstein, I'm not that smart. Everyone can improve themselves but sooner or later you are going to hit your ceiling. 
  9. Answer this question straight up Anathema, which is the preferable group of soldiers.   Unit A -  composed of men who meet the current physical requirements   Unit B -  a group with lowered physical standards to increase the diversity of the unit
  10. Tesla Has Begun Making All Its New Cars Self-Driving

    The video is awesome, though probably filmed under ideal conditions. Watching it find its own parking spot with no one in it was great. 
  11. Perfect song choice for an Old Man Logan trailer, obviously the movie will deviate substantially from the comic but that song works so well for it
  12. Not sure I get the point of this. It is going to be likely under powered by livingroom console standards and it is too big of handheld to fit in your pocket. It is like it is trying to be the best of both worlds but missing the most important points. 
  13. In for tiny Groot
