Peter Thiel discussing "The Myth Of Diversity" with particular emphasis on universities. If it wasn't pointed out that it is decades old, you wouldn't know it.

Veteran mocked on 'Saturday Night Live' wins House seat

Based response to PTSD question.
I loved Dan Crenshaw's (the veteran) response: "Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended."

Too many people practice that in reverse nowadays.

I like how this all turned out. SNL invited Crenshaw to the show for a funny segment, he joked with Pete Davidson and delivered his own much better PSA at the end. It was like something that would have happened years ago when we were only at Hate Level Blue.

We were also both big fans of Richard Marcinko's autobiography Rogue Warrior when we were kids, oddly enough. I've probably read that book 15+ times; my copy is held together with duct tape ;D

That said, I do think so called sovereign citizens serve a useful purpose. They give Scientologists somebody to laugh at.

Heather McDonald describes how hard Thiel nailed it in the current university system. It's going to be with us for a long time.

What do you make of the host? I have tried to listen to Levin on the radio at night but I have to admit I didn't last very long. Had to turn him off.

EDIT: so far so good with Heather MacDonald, though.
I'd forgotten about that GradeAUnderA guy! It is from him that I learned to use J,K,L on the keyboard to pause videos on youtube and jump forward and back.

The generational tech gap. I remember my sister showing our niece (by my other sister) her old rotary telephone and my niece asked how we sent text messages. I told her that we used Western Union.

What do you mean "generational tech gap?"

I think they figured it out pretty quickly for how non-intuitive rotary phones are. The first way they tried actually made a lot of sense, but looked :o because I already know how to use one .
