He was 86 (or thereabouts) in this clip. He died in 1964 at age 90.

Hoover was an "accidental spy." During the late 1890s and through to the beginning of WW1, Hoover was a mining engineer in various places including Australia, China and Russia. Fast forward to 1949... and the Soviets detonate their first nuclear device. The US is in a panic, the Cold War ignited. The CIA and military needed information on Russia but had little. Just by chance, the CIA learned of a vast collection of notes and maps held by Stanford University, which included information on Kyshtym, an area in Russia that the CIA believed was the source of their plutonium. As it happened, Hoover was a mining engineer in that area decades before, and mapped the region himself. He didn't throw anything away, and later donated all his notes to Stanford, his alma mater. The CIA had what they needed, and Hoover's information was used later when Gary Powers flew his ill-fated U2 surveillance flight into Russia in 1960. It's funny how history works, isn't it?

For the price of one Apache helicopter, the military could buy a shipload of these drones, load them up with roman candles, and wreak havoc on IS. It'd annoy the crap out of them, maybe they'd kill themselves to avoid these things.

I don't care for her (and less for Kanye), but this is clever. There's no better way to shut up the critics than toss out a little tongue-in-cheek self-deprecation. In Australia, we call this "taking the piss out of" oneself.

I hope you succeed, Dick! One correction... Costco in the US actually pays considerably more than their competitors here. The starting wage is $14/hr, while the minimum wage is $9/hr in California (less in other states).

I am in love with Raven. And I have less love for Oprah than before (which wasn't much). How do you end racism? "Stop talking about it," said Morgan Freeman. Problem is, for Oprah, Jackson, Sharpton et al., they HAVE to. It's their paycheck.

I tried ODesk. I got one job, originally quoted for only $25, a one-time chart. There were so many revisions that my final rate came out to less than a dollar per hour. That was it, no more.

Has anyone had experience with outsource.com?

We conservatives need to be careful ... as soon as liberals grow tired of the Affirmative Action meme, or want to disassociate themselves from it (anything's possible), they'll turn around and say "Aha! Affirmative Action was brought in by Nixon, a Republican! You guys ARE racists!" This may be a stretch, but it illustrates the bigger point: Liberals/Democrats are EXPERTS in flipping a message upside down to discredit the other side. Of course, the audience on that side will roll over and eat it up as they do with anything else. Libs/Dems win all too often because they have a stronger and smarter hold on the message machine (social media, internet, media in general, etc).
