This Week's Quote: "Tell me what /you/ think, not what you think other people think. If you voted in terms of what /you’re/ ready for, rather than what you’ve convinced yourself others are ready for, we’d have had Constitutional government, a libertarian society, and eradicated socialism half a century ago." —L. Neil Smith

General Discussion / Re: What kind of dumbass placement is this, YouTube?

Well, I'm listening to the most recent Bogosity podcast on YouTube, when THIS shows up as an ad:


That's the full video, folks.  I checked the channel it's stored on, and not only is this the longest version currently there, there's actually a version that apparently was created as a proper ad, and is a reasonable 44 seconds long.

What they're giving in the photo is the same salute the Nazis would later use. The hand is an extension of the arm, it isn't bent so the palm is facing the flag. At the time they called it the Bellamy Salute.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bellamy_salute

And, according to the description, they're actually doing it wrong.  It was specifically intended to be palm up (which is, as noted in the article, somewhat awkward).  If you can see the flag, it's obviously not a Nazi or Fascist salute.

Where the idea that this gesture was used in Classical Rome is something I'd like to know.  Was this just another example of movies just inventing a gesture when they needed one, like the thumbs up/down gesture for the Roman Emperor saying to spare or kill a gladiator?  (The classical sources only say the gesture involved 'pressing' the thumb, but no specific gesture is described.  Compare this to modern references to people 'giving the finger,' 'making the peace sign,' or [mostly in the UK] 'giving the V sign,' which you see commonly while not very often seeing specific descriptions of what these gestures actually are.)

Actually, the Roman salute only looks like a Nazi salute if you deliberately distort it with careful selection of the photography angle and/or cropping.  (The Roman salute is done with the right hand, and in this context begins with the arm extended, palm upwards, towards the flag, then the hand is brought over the heart.  By selecting an angle where the orientation of the hand is obscured and the flag is not visible or cropping it out the person can be made to appear to be giving a Nazi salute.)   It being used to discredit people during WWII resulted in the use of the Roman salute falling out of favor, now if any gesture is done at all it is usually just placing the right hand over the heart.

Yeah come to think of it, Nike is the bigger idiot here.  No doubt this campaign simply reinforces the notion that Kaepernick is just a whiny cry baby, but at least HE didn't lose BILLIONS of dollars.  This is meme-able but I haven't found this being applied to Communism/Socialism.

He is just being a crybaby.  His career had cratered BEFORE the kneeling nonsense.  He's already been benched in favor of a quarterback with a startlingly bad record.

It occurs to me that part of the problem with the IoT device security probably comes from the fact that these devices are being made, mostly, by the same companies that have been making the non-IoT devices of the same function.  Their software developers have been used to making either black box controllers (where security isn't an issue because the simply have no attack surface) or they were making things that connected to a sealed and totally controlled industrial control network (where security isn't an issue because there should be no attackers).  (Yes, the majority of attacks on computer networks have, historically, been inside attacks.  That's because of the vagaries of humans, not because a sealed control network should be built differently than the way they are.  If you're building a sealed control network, you're supposed to be able to trust your humans.)

Plunk these people down in an environment where you're trying to build something that exposes the control interface to the Internet by design, and you've got a problem.

More than $4 BILLION loss in market cap (2%)!  It looks like it's stopped falling (for now), but the new trend seems to be burning Nike products in public.

This is going to be about as good for Nike as the mistakenly elected Justin Trudeau's effusive praise for Fidel Castro.

Yeah come to think of it, Nike is the bigger idiot here.  No doubt this campaign simply reinforces the notion that Kaepernick is just a whiny cry baby, but at least HE didn't lose BILLIONS of dollars.  This is meme-able but I haven't found this being applied to Communism/Socialism.
