Selection of the month:
/bin/true used to be an empty file. The shell would open it, do nothing, and exit with a true status code.
When the Unix Support Group (development organization at Bell Labs) formalized everything, they gave it a long SCCS header, as they did every other file, and then needed to add "exit 0" at the end. The file was therefore infinitely larger than before.
At some point, somewhere (not sure where) it was decided this was poor engineering, probably because the shell spends time reading that big SCCS header as a comment one byte at a time.

1. This case gets more bizarre by the minute: In Feb 2016, sheriff’s office received information that Nicholas Cruz “planned to shoot up the school” A deputy forwarded the information to the school resource officer at Stoneman High. That resource officer was was Deputy Peterson.
2. Same Peterson who stood outside when the call came.
Then in September 2016, a peer counselor at Stoneman High alerted school resource officer — likely Deputy Peterson — that Cruz “possibly ingested gasoline” week prior “in an attempt to commit suicide and is cutting himself.”
3. There's of course the odd and most unusual report of a caller from Massachusetts warning the Sheriff's Office in November 2017 exactly what was going to happen. Yes from Massachusetts...

"Manafort and Gates" LITIGATION and POKER -- Both strategic pursuits that count on playing your cards right, and #Mueller is a master player.
"Before a civil or criminal trial begins in earnest, there is a period of time in which both parties exchange information about
about the facts of the case. This is called discovery." ( Before Discovery begins in a criminal case if a guilty defendant finds out the prosecution has a strong case, that defendant will be more likely to plead guilty to lesser charges to get a
lesser punishment. Prosecutors typically do not charge a defendant with their worst crimes initially because if they did that, the Defendant would not be motivated to “flip” – to tell what they know about bigger crime and other people involved in them. In litigation, as in poker

Sweet! Confirmation from Q that @realDonaldTrump was, indeed, signaling to us that he hears us (reads us 5 by 5)!!
2. An anon is grateful for Q confirmation on the [SIG_5:5_READ] msg. Q asks if we counted the spaces in @realDonaldTrump's tweet this morning and the msg Q posted yesterday. Tweet had 18 spaces, Q's drop had 58 spaces w/difference of 40. Need to figure out what the 40 signifies.
3. Clown agents working in China and elsewhere were outed and murdered via HRC's unclass server. She basically sold hostile countries access to her server & classified/SAP info including names of under cover Clowns. This is just the TIP! Will be public SOON!! Treasonous B****!

Okay, allow me to be the cranky strategic political communication professor for a minute.

I've got some stuff to say about this ludicrous "arm the teachers" gambit. (1/?)
It's a ridiculous proposal. It's an unserious proposal. It's an offensive proposal.

And the thing is, that's the whole point. (2/?)
The NRA camp has a strategic problem right now, because the latest massacre happened to children who are (1) old enough to articulate political demands, (2) savvy enough to make those demands effectively, and (3) working nonstop to do something with this political moment. (3/?)

So, this is another bit of breaking news. I just want to point out that police departments across the country contend (and judges agree!) that there is no requirement for police to risk their lives to protect others.

Like, not even a little bit.

Not even in principle.
When a police officer guns someone down, we're simultaneously treated to the contradictory excuses that They Put Their Lives On The Line For Us, and also You Can't Expect Them To Put Their Lives On The Line By Not Shooting First.
There is a lot of mythologizing about police running fearlessly selflessly into dangerous situations but an awful lot of police training and tactics is on how to avoid that.

1. This is ALL about Manafort, Podesta & the Clintons. You can take that to the bank in Cyprus.

And it confirm to me that Mueller is on the right track.
2. Again, if it turns out that ANYONE on Trump has been up to no good, they deserve justice. No one is above the law.

But this indictment is nothing to do with Trump at all.
3. It's quite simple. If Trump or his inner circle knew about Manafort & Gates Yanukovych work and/or money laundering and/or link to Tony Podesta, they deserve to be implicated. So did Trump or anyone on his team know?

Of course they didn't. The idea is ludicrous.

(1) @pmhodgson asks, "Who knows?"

The answer is, "I know."

And in a moment, YOU'LL know.
(2) Guns haven't suddenly become more easily accessible.

What has happened that is causing the murder rate to go up?
(3) In the case of mass shootings, the answer is that the US refuses to do anything about the dangerously mentally ill.

Dear SCO Mueller’s Team,
Mic has two words for you re Manafort:
Wellington Farm
Circa 2003-2004
BB&T foreclosures...check the Palm Beach County Circuit Court records...
Here’s my proof in concept:
Run the search under his wife’s name.
NOT his...…
Also ask Manafort about the:
$250,000 from Abdul Rahman al-Assir, a middle eastern arms dealer. That he obtained AFTER this EDVA case.
Trust me on this...there’s Juice here and the road loops back to Deripaska who wants his money

So with the Illuminati, Freemasons, #pedogate, sexual rituals, symbols hidden in plain sight, Jesuits, Roman Catholic Church corruption...

I first stumbled upon these in the early 2000s when I read Dan Brown's books, starting with Angels & Demons.

Dan Brown's books were eventually made into blockbuster movies staring none other than Tom Hanks... though that rabbit hole and his connection to this cult is overwhelming.
Anyways, ONE important movie that was supposed to be made in the Dan Brown's book series is called The Lost Symbol. Hollywood refused to make it.

Here's a peak of the plot, to help you understand why.

(1) Let's talk about "LESS THAN 10".

#QAnon: "Less than 10 can confirm me".

Q drops intel to 3 groups.

(A) the Anons and Patriots, (B) operators on the field, (C) members of the Cabal.

He has spoken directly to L de R, Jack, Snowden.

(2) Intitially I tought of that list from Hannity. It had 11 names - BUT, it had Mueller and Rosenstein's names - and we Q folk know they're working for POTUS. So it's "less than ten names". I read: "This 9 guys can confirm Q".

Let me tell you guys about my personal experience shooting accurately and shooting accurately under stress and how it relates to this "let's arm teachers" debate.
I was an "expert" shot in the Army. Which means I went to a range with no gear on, walked to my station, layed down prone and fired at stationary targets between 50 and 300m away.

Sounds pretty impressive, right?

Well, it's not.
Because right before I got out I went on what's called a "stress shoot."

Basically, imagine wearing 40lbs of gear and doing a five minute cross fit workout, then dragging a 50lb sled to a position where you then had to shoot accurately.

Guys, I’m a college professor.

I’ve also been shooting guns my entire life and own multiple guns now.

I don’t trust myself to be able to capably defend a classroom against a shooter, and I’m a good shot.

Why would we expect teachers everywhere to bear this responsibility?
When I go into a classroom, I don’t want to think about whether or not I’m going to need to shoot a student today to protect my class.

That’s not my job.
Fun story:
I was born and raised in a GOP household.

When I was 18, I registered as a Republican.

At 21, I applied for and obtained a concealed carry permit for the state of VA.

Around that age/time, I used to carry my Ruger SP101 .357 mag with regularity.

I'm going to use my newfound reach to explain a few things to the public.

#Pizzagate is very much real, and never disappeared, and was never debunked.

Many Democrats, including the Clintons and the Obamas (but also well-monied, international power brokers)
participate in a Satanic Death Cult that sacrifices trafficks, sexually abuses, and even cannibalizes children. I refer to these individuals collectively as "The Cabal."

Hillary Clinton had #SethRich executed.

Obama had #JusticeScalia executed.
Many "good" politicians were blackmailed into submission by this cabal. They have recently been freed.

Military uncovered Obama and Hillary's 16 year plan to destroy America and start WWIII - and almost pulled a military coup in 2013.

Have slept on Skin in the Game by @nntaleb, here is a thread about some things I learned/liked most
SITG is about 4 things: uncertainty, symmetry in human affairs, information in transacations and rationality in complex systems. These 4 are best solved through SITG
1- If you want the upside, you must also take the risk of downside (bankers being bailed out by the public are the antithesis of SITG)

Every time another one of these mass shootings happen - right when the Republicans start telling us that the answer is more guns, guns for everyone, guns for teachers, guns for students - I think about Chris Kyle.
Chris Kyle was the American Sniper guy - a highly decorated Navy Seal sniper with 150 confirmed kills in the Iraq War. Whatever else is true about him, he definitely was very good at shooting guns and used to being in combat environments.
On February 2nd, 2013, Kyle and a friend took a 25 year old Marine veteran to a shooting range, in the hope of helping him with his PTSD. On the way Kyle realized that the guy was dangerous, and texted his friend as such; the friend replied affirmatively
