  1. Quote from Biden last night: Transitioning from Oil & Gas to Renewables isn't a new idea, and it's not something that will happen overnight, but IMO it's a process that is going to happen at some point, and it would be beneficial to start that process sooner rather than later so that we aren't forced into making it a short, jarring transition.
  2. Those companies know it's a lot quicker, easier, and cheaper to just give the hackers the passwords, right? (/s should be obvious, but just in case)
  3. FWIW, FiveThirtyEight has Biden winning PA in 87% of their 40,000 simulations. https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2020-election-forecast/pennsylvania/ Also as a FWIW, I work in Oil & Gas (I'm a Software Engineer working in Upstream Land.

  4. https://techcrunch.com/2020/10/22/dutch-hacker-trump-twitter-account-password/ TL;DR - A Dutch Security researcher accessed Trump's twitter account for the 2nd time in 4 years by guessing the password. In 2016, the password was "yourefired". The researcher reported the breach to local authorities with suggestions on how Trump could improve his password security, including using something like "maga2020!", which adds numbers and a special character to improve complexity. In 2020, the password was "maga2020!" EDIT: He also emailed US-CERT (a division of Homeland Securit

  6. Just going to drop this here as an example:
  7. I disagree to an extent. My top 3 takeaways from it were: 1. When given the absolute softest of softball questions in "Do you condemn White Supremacy", Trump responded that a known racist and right-wing extremist group called the Proud Boys should "Stand Back and Stand By". As much as Trump yelled about Biden not saying "Law and Order", Trump refused on multiple occasions to condemn white supremacy. Side note: He also says he ended racial sensitivity training because it's racist, which is just ridiculous 2. Trump refused to say that he would accept the election results either way, a
  8. For those who haven't kept up with the NFL, the Seahawks completely changed up their offensive philosophy this year, in part thanks to the "Let Russ Cook" movement. The following video explains the concept far better than I ever could, so I'll drop it here. The TL;DR of the video is that statistics and analytics (again, the video goes in to much greater detail) show that offenses who throw the ball more on early downs in the NFL correlate to the offenses that have the highest points-per-game statistic over the past 2 years. The Seahawks, who have traditionally been a run-first o
  9. Such as? Based on what evidence? By all accounts, the U.S. stumbled out of the gates on Testing, especially when you compare us to places like South Korea, where they had drive-thru testing with results in 15 minutes as early as March. Source: https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2020/03/13/815441078/south-koreas-drive-through-testing-for-coronavirus-is-fast-and-free What network has he set up? What exactly has he done to "get folks vaccinated"? When you say "I do think it will go away in time", what parameters are you accounting for here? Are you saying the virus will j
  10. I don't think you're understanding me correctly. This is like Bush knowing 9/11 was coming and doing nothing. This is like FDR knowing Pearl Harbor was about to happen, and doing nothing. Trump knew. By his own admission, he knew this had the potential to be bad. Yet, rather than taking necessary precautions to protect the American people, he denied it was even a problem. Over, and over, and over again. February 25, 18 days after tapes: “I think that's a problem that’s going to go away… They have studied it. They know very much. In fact, we’re very close to a vaccine.”
  11. Not without a ton of hard work to create, verify, and distribute a vaccine. Not without people wearing masks and socially distancing. Not without sacrifices by people to help protect themselves and their fellow citizens. Trump's exact words were "One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear". Do you really think that's true? Do you really think that "like a miracle", one day people will just stop getting COVID?
  12. How do you reconcile the Woodward tapes from Early February where Trump recognizes that COVID was going to be (in his own words), "It's also more deadly than even your strenuous flus" while 18 days later, telling the public "I think that's a problem that’s going to go away"?
  13. Trump: "I downplayed the virus to prevent a panic" Also Trump: "ANTIFA IS COMING TO BURN DOWN YOUR SUBURBS!!! AND REMEMBER THAT CARAVAN THAT WAS COMING FOR THE BORDER??? BIDEN IS GOING TO TURN AMERICA SOCIALIST!!!!" Here's a timeline. Any Trump supporters want to defend this? January 22: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.” February 2: “We pretty much shut it down coming in from China.” February 5: HHS Secretary Azar requested $2 billion to buy respirator masks & other supplies for the national
