Watch the worldwide flow of refugees from 2000 to 2015.
Each dot equals 17 people, and I'll bet you'll be as surprised as I was.

Wow. My version of Firefox (51.0.1) didn't like that site at all.

May have just taken a long time to load, seemed to lock up FF cold, though.

Chrome takes about 12 seconds to load, IE10 doesn't like it.

“Of all the campaigns in my life—20 major ones to be exact—the one I felt the most sure of was the one I was deprived of waging properly. I could have won the war in Korea in a maximum of 10 days, once the campaign was under way, and with considerably fewer casualties than were suffered during the so-called truce period. It would have altered the course of history."

An interesting take on why middle America flocked to Trump and stick by him. Also, how smaller politicians are choosing to emulate him, while the democrats are still clueless.

west-virginia-tries-to-improve-broadband-competition-incumbent-isps-immediately-sue.

So by now you've probably noticed that the broadband industry is somewhat, well, broken. Unaccountable giant telecom incumbents, with a stranglehold on both federal and state lawmakers, work tirelessly alongside well-compensated lawmakers and covertly paid policy vessels to protect the status quo (read: limited competition, high prices, poor customer service). Often that involves quite literally writing and buying state laws that make it impossible for anybody to do much of anything about this dance of dysfunction.

And when it comes to highlighting the end result of this corruption, there's no better state than West Virginia. Whereas bigger incumbents in more populated states can often hide their stranglehold over a broken market under layers upon layers of exquisitely crafted bullshit, many West Virginia lawmakers and regional incumbent Frontier Communications lack the savvy and competence to mask what they're truly up to.

As a result, the state has been awash in controversy over its telecom policies for years now. Local Charleston Gazette reporter Eric Eyre has done yeoman's work chronicling West Virginia's immense broadband dysfunction, from the State's use of broadband stimulus subsidies on unused, overpowered routers and overpaid, redundant consultants, to state leaders' attempts to bury reports highlighting how a cozy relationship with Frontier has led to what can only be explained as systemic, statewide fraud on the taxpayer dime.

Badaboom, Big Badaboom.

MADRID—The arsenal is a terrorist’s dream: 150 live hand grenades, 44 rocket propelled grenades, 1,450 9mm cartridges, 18 tear gas grenades, scores of triggers and detonators of various kinds, 102 explosive charges, and 264 blocks of plastic explosive. Such is the inventory of deadly materiel that was stolen from a military installation in Portugal on June 28 and is still missing.
Then, two days after that robbery, a van loaded with nitroglycerin was robbed in Barcelona, Spain. Those explosives have not been recovered either.

mozilla send.

A convenient free way to send somebody a file up to 1GB without an account with a file sharing service. File expires after one day or one download, whichever comes first. Encrypted too.

https://send.firefox.com/

Seems like it could come in handy.

LOL. You are sitting in the lounge waiting for the oil change to be completed and you see either that guy with the sledge hammer or the one with the giant pipe wrench walking up to your car.

Bravo-class submarine. Project 690

Flickr set of a Bravo class submarine. Maybe in Ukraine.

That is, literally, all the info I got.
