How does the President intend to overcome Zeno's Paradox to make credible the threat of use of our nuclear missile systems?

Asking the hard questions here.  This is the kind of grueling inquisition that the press could only dream of.

That depends, can God make an object so heavy that he himself cannot lift it?

Well lets be fair here, they're acting as stenographers for the intelligence services in this case.

That said, some specialist scholars on North Korea and the South Korean intelligence services have been saying the same thing for a couple of weeks now, that Pyongyang is gearing up for another display of military and engineering ineptitude prowess.

Tried a high chaos, stealth, Mostly Flesh and Steel run of Dishonored 2 as Emily Kaldwin.  Quite a different experience of the game, without powers to solve every problem.  And of course, since I was aiming for stealth (not complete ghost runs, though I got a couple of them), I couldn't just gun down problems either. 

It was satisfying though, taking down witches and Clockwork Soldiers and Duke Luka Abele and Delilah without resorting to the Outsider's cheap tricks.  All crossbow, grenades, stun mines and sword, all the way.  And all those collected runes should set me up nicely for a NG+ (if it works that way).

Today, my co-worker was called while she was in a Uni lecture because our manager couldn't find a master key and thought she took it.  2 weeks ago, the department head made a note on our handovers that he was taking a master key for himself.  That was the key he thought was missing.  I should note, this is the manager that insists he get the handover printed on a daily basis for him, despite it also being emailed to him daily.

Also, I reported way back in November 18 that a particular room was fire hazard levels of mess.  What did my manager tell me?  "Leave it with me".  Now, 7 weeks later, the issue has still not been resolved. and he has had to report the kid to his college.

I'm not sure.  I thought it might be like a police district designation, with RHE perhaps standing for the specialist riot police squad.  But google turns up nothing.

CNN is reporting that US intelligence officials believe North Korea is preparing a ballistic missile test for the first days or weeks of a Trump administration.

Nobody could have forseen...

I'm just glad you've wrested the "dumbest advanced nation" crown from our heads yet again.

Work continues to be fun.

Last week, I discovered six people listed as away who had actually returned.  Sent slightly sarcastic email.  Found several things wrong with rooms, lists, signing in forms and other things, which I ranted at my manager about, knowing full well he wouldn't do anything about it.

Today I come in, and find he has emailed a complaint about my being one number out on a medication count (of several hundred pills).  Public email, to the whole department.  Slight problem...I counted what the student took and deducted that from the number in the book.

So fire lists etc, not important at all, but HOLY SHIT CAIN WAS (NOT) OFF BY ONE PILL IN A COUNT, BETTER SEND AN EMAIL CALLING HIM OUT RIGHT AWAY.

Oh, and a student of mine is probably getting expelled or suspended.  I don't know what for though because no-one thought to include me in the private message that says what happened.   I'm only here 4 nights a week, why would I need to know anything?

Obviously the best time to get up to any international chicanery will be this weekend.  America's ambassadors and other top officials are being made to quit as soon as Trump is sworn in as President, and there will be no direction from the White House either.

Just saying.

This is the same Trump who criticised Obama for playing too much golf and describes himself as a workaholic?  :lulz:

My sleep schedule has gone to shit over the past few months.

For example, I finished work Sunday morning.  Slept 4 hours until 1230, then stayed awake until 1500 the next day, slept for 4 hours that night, then slept another 5 hours from around 0600 in the morning, then yesterday I slept from 0400 until 1230 again.

That's actually pretty good for me.

As you say Faust, America has not officially charged him with any crimes.  Only Sweden wants him extradited, which he continues to refuse to do.
