By George F. Will Opinion writer

In 2013, a college student assigned to research a deadly substance sought help via Twitter: “I can’t find the chemical and physical properties of sarin gas someone please help me.” An expert at a security consulting firm tried to be helpful, telling her that sarin is not gas. She replied, “yes the [expletive] it is a gas you ignorant [expletive]. sarin is a liquid & can evaporate . . . shut the [expletive] up.”

Tom Nichols, professor at the U.S. Naval War College and the Harvard Extension School, writing in the Chronicle Review, says such a “storm of outraged ego” is an increasingly common phenomenon among students who, having been taught to regard themselves as peers of their teachers, “take correction as an insult.” Nichols relates this to myriad intellectual viruses thriving in academia. Carried by undereducated graduates, these viruses infect the nation’s civic culture.

Soon the results include the presidential megaphone being used to amplify facially preposterous assertions, e.g., that upward of 5 million illegal votes were cast in 2016. A presidential minion thinks this assertion is justified because it is the president’s “long-standing belief.”

“College, in an earlier time,” Nichols writes, “was supposed to be an uncomfortable experience because growth is always a challenge,” replacing youthful simplicities with adult complexities. Today, college involves the “pampering of students as customers,” particularly by grade inflation in a context of declining academic rigor: Nichols cited a recent study that showed A to be the most commonly awarded grade, 30 percent more frequent than in 1960. And a 2011 University of Chicago study found that 45 percent of students said that in the previous semester none of their courses required more than 20 pages of writing and 32 percent had no class that required more than 40 pages of reading in a week.

“Unearned praise and hollow successes,” Nichols writes , “build a fragile arrogance in students that can lead them to lash out at the first teacher or employer who dispels that illusion, a habit that carries over into a resistance to believe anything inconvenient or challenging in adulthood.” A habit no doubt intensified when adults in high places speak breezily of “alternative facts.”

“Rather than disabuse students of their intellectual solipsism,” Nichols writes, “the modern university reinforces it,” producing students given to “taking offense at everything while believing anything.” Many colleges and universities, competing for tuition dollars “too often drawn thoughtlessly from an inexhaustible well of loans,” market a “college experience” rather than an education. The experience “turns into five and, increasingly, six [years].” Nichols notes that “the fragility of 21st-century students” results from “the swa

>There is a 30% chance that Lake Mead could drop below 1,020 feet by 2020. If a "megadrought" like the one that affected the southwest during medieval times occurs, Lake Mead would become largely unusable by 2040. Hoover Dam will cease generating electricity once the water level falls below 950 feet and the lake will stabilize at a level of 895 feet (273 m) when the water reaches the lowest water outlet of the dam. In order to ensure that the city of Las Vegas will continue to be able to draw its drinking water from Lake Mead, nearly $1.5 billion was spent on building a new water intake tunnel in the middle of the lake at the elevation of 860 feet. The 3-mile tunnel took seven years to build under the lake and was put into operation in late 2015.

They basically made sure that even if the world ends, Las Vegas will still have water.

Are you buying in a city suburb or a countryside homestead?

Most of that side of the continent is actually artificially greened by irrigation, this artificial greening happened to boost agriculture and kill millions of species. The entire west coast should all be desert, savanna or chaparral.

Lake Mead itself is not a lake, it's an artificial reservoir created by the Hoover dam. Water levels are controlled with the push of a button. You can buy there, as long as you realize your entire environment is basically artificial, and completely at the whim of the next government.

Generally when buying a homestead especially with your kids in mind you should do it someplace more stable than next to a dam reservoir or in a shitty state like Cali. Look at states that export natural resources, like Alaska, and make your home there. Or you can buy in a city and just teach your kids how to survive on the real estate market.

The fuck? Lake Mead isn't decreasing because of climate change, it's decreasing because more power is required out of the dam, which necessitates more water be let through it. Decrease the power requirements and the water level will rise dramatically.

Except we can use our nuclear power plants to desalinate more fresh water than America can even use.

Surprised he didn't wreck on a dry summer day.

For the winter I run studded snow tires on a set of steelies with about 500lbs of ballast just ever so slightly forward of the rear axle (look at your truck's MFG loading diagram for where you should put it for minimal effect on steering). I live in the mountains and we got ~8in a few weeks ago. Got around just fine in my 2007 Ram 1500 2wd v6 6spd manual.

I am thinking of investing in some new and "name" brand tire chains for next year and even upgrading to a torque sensing/biasing diff (torsen type, DD makes them for my platform) that way I don't have to gun it up the long and steep inclines around my house.

Thank you!
I was waiting for someone to reference nihilist philosopher, Max Stirner.
Johann Kaspar Schmidt (October 25, 1806 – June 26, 1856), better known as Max Stirner, was a German philosopher. He is often seen as one of the forerunners of nihilism, existentialism, psychoanalytic theory, postmodernism, and anarchism, especially of individualist anarchism.
Stirner proposes that most commonly accepted social institutions – including the notion of State, property as a right, natural rights in general, and the very notion of society – were mere illusions, "spooks" or ghosts in the mind.
He advocated egoism and a form of amoralism, in which individuals would unite in 'unions of egoists' only when it was in their self-interest to do so. For him, property simply comes about through might: "Whoever knows how to take, to defend, the thing, to him belongs property." And, "What I have in my power, that is my own. So long as I assert myself as holder, I am the proprietor of the thing." He says, "I do not step shyly back from your property, but look upon it always as my property, in which I respect nothing. Pray do the like with what you call my property!" Stirner considers the world and everything in it, including other persons, available to one's taking or use without moral constraint – that rights do not exist in regard to objects and people at all. He sees no rationality in taking the interests of others into account unless doing so furthers one's self-interest, which he believes is the only legitimate reason for acting. He denies society as being an actual entity, calling society a "spook" and that "the individuals are its reality" (The Ego and Its Own).

Hello, there. I would like to make a thread dedicated to the phenomenon of capital punishmeny within modern-day militaries, such as the practice of executing their own soldiers, and advocating aainst this phenomenon.

(When I say 'executing their own soldiers', I am referring, for example, to the types of capital punishment practiced in World War 2 by Germany and the Soviet Union.... just to use these specific counties in that war as an example of militaries which followed this practice...)

.... will post more in successive comments....

If true (not doubting you though I wouldn't exactly be enraged if you dropped a link as so far the only think I can find about the white chick is she is supposed to be Holly Fisher or Jihad Barbie from West Virginia, Best Virginia, and nothing I can find about her says anything about her being shot, the Florida pro-gun woman shot by her toddler is Jamie Gilt and she survived) motive still matters.

If Fisher or whomever the white girl was was shot by her kid, she killed someone through incompetence, not through malice.

The other is Reem Riyashi who defintely killed 4 people through malice, through hate, through a bomb vest that probably sent plenty of shrapnel through her to turn her into probably not halal hamburger.

One if she killed anyone did not do so on purpose, the other definitely did.

It would not be an intentional shooting but rather one from negligence. You let kids get a hold of loaded guns and they shoot someone with them and many jurisdictions go after the parents for negligent homicide and/or other weapons-related and child endangerment charges.
Authorities Want to Charge Mom Shot By Her 4-Year-Old Son https://youtu.be/8MBav3g0pnA
by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/authorities-want-charge-mom-shot-her-own-4-year-old-n543731
PALATKA, Fla. — The mother of a 4-year-old boy who shot her as they were riding in a pickup truck should face a misdemeanor charge, authorities said Tuesday as they released details of the shooting for the first time.
The mother, 31-year-old Jamie Gilt, put a loaded .45-caliber handgun underneath the front seat of her pickup on March 8 and the weapon slid into the back seat where her son Lane was riding in a child booster seat, Putnam County Sheriff's Capt. Gator DeLoach said.
The boy had recently learned how to unbuckle himself, got out of his seat and picked up the gun. He fired through the front seat, hitting his mother in the back. There was also a dinosaur toy on the floor near where the gun would have slid, according to a police report.
...Authorities said they are recommending a charge of allowing a child access to a firearm, which is punishable by up to 180 days in jail, DeLoach said. It will be up to prosecutors, who are reviewing the case, to decide whether to file the charge or any others.
The gun, which was not in a holster and didn't have the safety lock on, was a Springfield X Compact, according to the sheriff's offense report. It was legally owned.

Florida gun enthusiast who was shot in the back by her four-year-old with a handgun she'd left in her truck WON'T be prosecuted
-She will not face prosecution provided she meets certain conditions
In a statement, the State Attorney said that Gilt would not face prosecution provided she performed a number of agreed-upon tasks.
She would be required to complete a gun safety course and install a mounted holster in her vehicle, as well as providing proof of safe storage of firearms within her home.
The mom must also give ten speeches related to the incident and the need to secure firearms, the court said. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3577563/Florida-mom-shot-four-year-old-son-picked-handgun-d-left-truck-WON-T-prosecuted.html
If Gilt complies with the agreement, prosecutors said the charge of unsafe storage of a firearm will be dismissed.

In most situations, when given two major options, there is almost always an option that is clearly more popular. Most people prefer Coke to Pepsi. Far more people commute in cars than motorcycles. Everyone knows Lego is way better than Mega Blocks.

So how did we get our current political situation? For decades, the two major parties have split the country's voters damn near even. Their voters are close enough in number, that the White House routinely switches back and forth between the two parties. Has anybody wondered how anomalous that is? Why hasn't one major party gained a clear and lasting lead over the other? How has this balance been maintained for so long?

Nah but really, its just one of those times of the year when little Timmy and Ahmed school boys get off from getting wedgies to act tough on the internet. Its Christmas and they are probably pissed they didn't get the latest iPoon or FuXboxOne (or maybe pissed they did get it) and gotta go online where everyone doesn't know your name and everybody isn't glad you came to make themselves feel better by pointlessly trolling.

As someone who probably hasn't contributed anything beyond stupid ass high school level philosophical bullshit and a thread where I asked if I could use a real lower in an airshit gun because I'm too lazy to ever finish it, I know something about a lack of contribution and I know you have contributed.

Of course this guy would accuse Bat Guano of not contributing anything, say he is a cancer, that he take credit for those massive image dumps that are actually done by anonymous posters. Would accuse Serv of being a newfag, Godverdomme of never contributing anything, and ac556guy of being a nonguns poser. If he knew who any of those people were, if he hadn't been here about as long as the average celeb jail sentence.

What'd you get people for Christmas?

My brother got a long stemmed ash wood pipe and some loose leaf Dominican tobacco to go with it.
The baby got some new clothes.
One sister-in-law is getting a tattoo I'm paying for.
The other one is getting a shopping trip at the Korean market. She loves that shit.
Wife said "Don't get me anything." I sense this is a trap.
I'm working on a special gift for a beloved coworker. She's an older woman, a rancher's daughter from Montana, a cancer survivor, and a penny pincher that would never get herself anything nice of her own free will. Later next week, I'm taking her to a western wear store and getting her a genuine felt Stetson hat.

I got my mom an amazon gift card, my dad a pair of winter boots he desperately needs and waifu a used sweater she specifically wanted off of ebay. Since she got the thing she asked for, I decided to get her set up with some stuff that she wouldn't "want", but would come to like having. I ended up getting her a good 4 piece lightweight "travel" fishing rod and reel, and then a medium light action rod and reel as well. She's come to really like fishing, and my setups are admittedly kind of jank. Hers are much nicer.

I also just ordered her the X-men apocalypse movie we haven't seen yet (and I'm sure probably sucks) and Avatar: The Last Airbender series off of ebay for "on the way" stocking stuffers. I wanted to get Star Wars 7 and Deadpool at first, but decided to get shit only she was actually that interested in.

I also wiggled into a super deal on a badass flare gun that I was originally going to go scare the shit out of some deer with, but decided to give to her for her car instead.
