  1. I guess he's qualified to be the Attorney General for minnesota.
  2. Since we don't have a general, all purpose archaeology topic, let this be a repository for all matters involving the science which has been made cool by whip-cracking, mummy-fighting, big-breasted, relic-hunting adventurers. And the real life stuff that is far more interesting.

    Forest fires are named after their point of origin, namely Camp Creek Road in this instance. https://www.sfgate.com/california-wildfires/article/Why-is-it-called-Camp-Fire-name-Butte-County-destr-13380824.php I don't know why it's not the "Camp Creek Fire". ... Also, you'll hear about "Complex" fires which are generally multiple different fires that have merged into one.
  4. Hillary Will Run Again Reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination. https://www.wsj.com/articles/hillary-will-run-again-1541963599 Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994. True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House. ... But Mrs. Clinton’s transformation during the primaries, especially on social and cultural issues, cost her an easy win against Donald Trump. As Hillary 3.0 catered to the coastal elites who had eluded her in 2008, Mr. Trump stole many of the white working-class voters who might have been amenable to the previous version. Finally she had the full support of the New York Times and the other groups that had shunned her for Mr. Obama—but only at the cost of an unforeseen collapse in support in the Midwest. ... The generation of Democrats who have been waiting to take over the party from the Clintons will be fuming that she is back and stealing their show. But they revealed themselves to be bungling amateurs in the Brett Kavanaugh nomination fight, with their laughable Spartacus moments. She will trounce them. Just as Mr. Trump cleared the field, Mrs. Clinton will take down rising Democratic stars like bowling pins. Mike Bloomberg will support her rather than run, and Joe Biden will never be able to take her on. ...

    United States Gun Control Megathread

    Good Guy With A Gun in Seattle helps apprehend shit-stain who stabbed ex-girlfriend to death near the Space Needle (the Seattle Center). Background behind the event and his decision as to why he became a CPL carrier here. http://mynorthwest.com/1179134/man-who-held-off-seattle-center-killer/ ... As for the video itself. This is what you can expect in Seattle. People wandering around obliviously while a murderer with bloody hands is waving a bloody knife around, while a guy holding a handgun is trying to detain him. And the useless rent-a-cops in the video were as worthless as tits on a boar hog. And yeah, that was a rent-a-cop on a fucking Segway. Also look at the moron with the mace, who was lucky he was stabbed to death. Which shows you how effective that shit is. Further observation, Good Guy With The Gun did the right thing by immediately putting his gun on the ground when the Seattle Police finally decided to show up.

    European Union common defense thread

    I believe Loooser is talking about the Soviets pulling out of the Warsaw Pact countries a couple years before the whole Soviet Union broke up, implying that the US would break apart as a Federal republic after it leaves NATO. @Oedipus Wreckx-n-Effect I’m not disparaging the notion of the country breaking apart. It was a fear of our Founding Fathers and almost happened a couple times in our history. But I doubt the political or economic downfall of the US will be brought about by asking that our NATO allies actually fulfill their treaty obligations by contributing to the alliance militarily or financially, a task they’ve shirked now for almost three decades.

    Like always, the 5X weekend brings out the shitters.
  9. I like the bit where Acosta is mewling like a petulant child when he was forced to sit behind the Romanian press.
  10. [Collimatrix here, I'm splitting this off and doing something I should have done a long time ago, which is have a thread dedicated to terror attacks and active shooters. News updates, professional analysis, that sort of thing. I know that these events are always very emotional and shocking, but let's try to keep it reasonable and level-headed. AEarly reports are usually godawful wrong. The whole truth may not come out for months. Anyone who tries to make a political point before the blood has congealed is a jackass.] So apparently there was a mass shooting in Las Vegas on the strip that just happened. We'll have to wait until useful information begins to trickle in and for 24-48 hours to go by before the false reports get corrected. Edit: The shaky mobile phone cam footage "sounds" kind of like automatic weapons fire. That is just a wild guess on my part. See second line.

    European Union common defense thread

    Trump rips Macron for proposing new EU army to defend against US https://nypost.com/2018/11/09/trump-rips-macron-for-proposing-new-eu-army-to-defend-against-us/ “We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America,” Macron said on French radio. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-46108633 "Who is the main victim? Europe and its security. I want to build a real security dialogue with Russia, which is a country I respect, a European country - but we must have a Europe that can defend itself on its own without relying only on the United States."
  12. Per the Alaska Daily News. Woman thanks bear for not eating kayak. Bear then eats kayak.
  13. Bold Prediction: Given Trump’s predilection to poaching popular Democrat policies (immigration, tarriffs) this could signal a change regarding drug and prison reform.
  14. As I’ve been saying, Sessions has been the biggest failure of the Trump Administration.
  15. Never change Nevada! https://nypost.com/2018/11/07/dead-brothel-owner-dennis-hof-wins-nevada-election/ The budding politician was found deceased after a rally with porn star Ron Jeremy and former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

    "Pigs" Have A Hard Job

    Pumpkin-fueled crime spree smashes 50 car windows, lands Grants Pass teens in jail https://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-northwest-news/index.ssf/2018/10/pumpkin-fueled_crime_spree_sma.html "It sounds like there was probably alcohol involved and just a bunch of stupid decisions," Lt. Misty English told The Oregonian/OregonLive. ... The destructive duo would then hurl the ill-gotten gourds through car windows, often pulverizing them, according to authorities. Damages reported by victims have come in around $30,000 and continue to climb, English said. The suspects may have gotten away with it too, had they not carried out the alleged wave of vandalism in a gold Buick with a large dent in one side, police say. "That made it pretty easy to recognize," English said.
