    Yup. There was a great ROI study done in various degree programs, gathering information from state and private academic institutions. On average, the only fields that had a positive ROI were in STEM fields. And my first degree (Biology) was actually just below the neutral ROI. Chemistry was the first on the list to have a positive ROI. The list was dominated with engineering and programming fields. Also, PhD programs were woooorthlessssss. But you shouldn't get into a PhD for money. That's a fool's errand.

    The Leopard 2 Thread

    People are pushing hard for new Leopard 2 A7Vs for the Norwegian Army it seems. It's been a long time since I've seen this level of engagement on a subject that doesn't involve 'distriktspolitikk'.

    CV-90, why so much love ?

    All the upgraded CV90s come with extra mine protection afaik. I suppose that the main reason for why these are outfitted with 81mm mortars is probably because that’s all the Norwegian Army has atm, and acquiring new 120mm mortars + ammunition would have added too much costs. With that being said, the VingPos Mortar Weapon System was developed on the request of the Norwegian Army, and it is designed to be able to accommodate both 81mm mortars and 120mm mortars, so might be that they’re hoping on acquiring some eventually.

    Everyone remember the stink about the Dakota Pipeline? Aka, you now know why the term "Indian Giver" exists? They sign a contract, then make a stink right before everything goes down because they knew they could. All those memes floating around about how the pipeline was leaking oil onto native land, just as they said it would? Guess who was caught sabotaging the pipeline and causing all of those leaks. https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/2017/07/24/dakota-access-protesters-claim-responsibility-pipeline-sabotage/504136001/
