Campus Idiots

And the college presidential offices they hold: 100 college presidents want to “debate” lowering the drinking age.  But:

There are other arguments for lowering the age. Maybe the most popular is that if you’re old enough to join the Army and die for your country, you’re old enough to buy a beer. But there is a good reason to avoid such blind consistency. Among the qualities that make 18-year-olds such good soldiers are their fearlessness and sense of immortality—traits that do not mix well with alcohol.

The article points out some statistics on the drop in teenage automotive fatalities due to drinking with increases in the drinking age.  If it saves just one child it is worth it, right?

It is not fair that 18 year olds can fight and die for their country and vote, but not drink?   Just chalk it up as another life lesson: life isn’t fair, get over it.

And this is interesting, they worry about binge drinking, but isn’t it just Darwinism in action?  They believe in Darwinism, right?  This is just a failure of under 21 year olds to adapt to their environment.

Cyberattacks As Acts Of War?

This Wall Street Journal article asks some interesting questions.  If someone used explosives to knock some of your power stations off of the grid, to blow up pipelines for heating oil and natural gas to the northeast during winter, to shut down the phone systems in New York, Washington D.C., and Atlanta, these would likely be considered acts of war.  But if these things were done with a computer and without explosives it would not make them any less an act of war.

Not As Interesting

Ted Kaczynski’s cabin in the woods is no where near as interesting as the idea of Mr. Fu’s “The Cabin in the Woods.”
