Mentioning the "Dunning-Kruger Effect" in an attempt to prove oneself as more knowledgable than other fools who think they know more about something than they actually do is an act of recursion.

Scott Adams' observation summarized:

Russian "Collusion" theory was the only thing holding together people's sense of self if they voted against the president. These are the people who need a reason why their side was so wrong. The Russian Interference part appears real, but it didn't make a significant difference in the election.

Enter Facebook... They are going to start blaming Facebook and Social Media. Watch the Russia thing shrink because the Facebook thing is growing.

This talk on "Exploring Swift memory layout" is good.

I was wondering what happened to FPSRussia. Damn, Felony drug offense in 2017. Drugs delivered to his post office box for his business?

"Today is March 14th, or Pi Day because 3.14 is March 14th rendered in date format. A better way to celebrate the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter is July 22nd, or 22/7 written in day/month order, an approximation of pi that’s been used for thousands of years and is a better fit than 3.14.

Well NAShow people, supposing it were true that Trump's election was 4D chess to fight the CIA controlled Deep State, I think we have to concede the effort has failed with the appointment of Pompeo and Haspel.

At least we got to enjoy the trolling of the Left while it lasted.
