Why do terrorists always chose to kill innocent people having a good time?

Because that creates the most terror, duh.

The correct question is why do suicides kill others? Or, why do humans glorify the ultimate self sacrifice?

As to where or a good time, if you are going to suicide and believe your glory is taking as many others as you can with you, where do you go? Do you go to a place where people are having a bad time? Does such a place draw a crowd? So you end up where the crowd is, the place where a good time is offered.

Heard a comment at the restaurant tonight from someone who was just mad and full of hate and blind rage*. He said it would stop when we taught them a lesson. I didn't get a chance to reply as others in his group arrived. But what are you going to do to them? Is it worse that what their God will do to them for eternity if they don't do their God's bidding and kill? Remember they are already so afraid of their God they are willing to suicide. What are you going to do that could "teach them a lesson?"

*we have had conversations on other evenings so I know where he stands.

Well, that was interesting.
The Seti web site went AWOL, so did the data servers. BOINC went AWOL, as did the Berkeley IST pages & web site, as did Berkeley.edu itself.

I do see that the Earl Warren Data Center load balancers are due for some work. Someone might have been poking around making sure that they have a written config to fall back on and while in, frozen a box by accident. Anyway on Thursday if it all crashes we have had a warning.

How fast the swamp fills ...
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/22/us/politics/trump-white-house-government-ethics-lobbyists.html
The Trump administration, in a significant escalation of its clash with the government’s top ethics watchdog, has moved to block an effort to disclose any ethics waivers granted to former lobbyists who now work in the White House or federal agencies.

The latest conflict came in recent days when the White House, in a highly unusual move, sent a letter to Walter M. Shaub Jr., the head of the Office of Government Ethics, asking him to withdraw a request he had sent to every federal agency for copies of the waivers. In the letter, the administration challenged his legal authority to demand the information.

Never mind... my mistake. He can invoke the Fifth if the contents of the documents are not known enough that submitting them is incriminating. See United States v. Hubbell.
Correct they must incriminate him or he must produce them. So when he invokes the smoke will clear and the fire show through.

Some of the selfish dorks would think it to be a great honour to be run over by <insert name of their "pet" train>
What happens when a load of selfish dorks trespass is an "all stop" message is sent out, everything stops, plod arrives and scoops up a few (the rest have done a runner. Then then is an inquiry, and eventually the specials get banned and the selfish dorks have ruined it for the vast majority.

Can't they put a couple of sharp shooters up front to clear the path? If not make the special pay for enough plods to stay ahead on the line and keep it clear.

And what means "Mozzarella style cheeze"?

Post:
"real Parmesan" doesn't mean anything is the USA as we aren't part of EU attribution by region doesn't exist. So cheese made in the style of Parmesan is sold as Parmesan and of course that is cheap and plentiful.

But Mozzarella style cheeze is the major cheese in an American style pizza pie

May 21 (UPI) -- North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile Sunday, one week after the communist nation also launched a rocket into the sea, South Korea's military announced.

"North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile in the eastern direction at around 4:59 p.m. from the vicinity of Pukchang in Pyeongannam-do (South Pyeongan Province)," South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

The missile flew about 350 miles toward the Sea of Japan, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said. South Korea and the United States are studying the exact trajectory and type of missile.

You only find cars that old in Cuba (near you), Sweden and North Korea!
Strange but true:)
And California.

Really? LOL.
I was talking about cars from the 60's and the early 70's.
Well everything is possible I suppose.
Some people use them as daily drivers out here in the land of palm trees and sunshine.
Of course the model A's and T's only come out on the weekend or to the car club meeting or the rally.

Knew a gentleman Jack Wall who bought two corvettes every year. One got driven, the other got parked. What would you bid for a factory cherry 1955 one owner corvette convertible with less than 10 miles on the odometer?
I see it recently sold again https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1955-CHEVROLET-CORVETTE-CONVERTIBLE-17556 but obviously now has miles on it and more than one owner.

Yes, California is weird about cars.
