The 26 funniest Twitter reactions to Trump and Clinton’s first Presidential debate

Did you watch last night’s Presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton? Of course you did, Because, if we’re being honest, everyone did. In the days and hours preceding the event, many even speculated that the debate was going to pull in Super Bowl type viewership numbers.

Hardly a surprise, this year’s Presidential election has been nothing short of a circus the likes of which the American public has never seen before. In turn, all eyes were laser focused on Trump and Clinton as the first Presidential debate kicked off at Hofstra University last night. Suffice it to say, the debate — at least from an entertainment perspective — lived up to the hype.

UPS wants to use drones to deliver medical supplies

UPS wants to use drones to deliver medical supplies

Over the past few months, we’ve seen drones used for all sorts of bizarre endeavors. Whether it’s a drone with an attached flamethrower roasting a turkey or a drone being used to deliver Chipotle burritos to lucky college students, there’s no denying that the world of the future will be filled with UAVs.

That being the case, there’s no reason why drones can’t be used for the greater good in addition to being used for quirky activities. Putting this idea into practice, UPS recently began testing the idea of using drones as a means to deliver emergency medical supplies in areas where in-person delivery would either be impossible or would take too long.

C-SPAN (remember them?!) is livestreaming the debate in split screen, allowing you to keep your watchful gaze on Clinton and Trump at the same time. Catch every coughing fit, see incredulous glances as they happen, or just marvel at Donald’s hair all night long. The choice is yours.

Army building new ‘ambidextrous’ multi-purpose grenade

Engineers at the U.S. Army’s Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey are developing an ambidextrous multi-purpose hand grenade, which is the military’s first new lethal hand grenade in more than 40 years.

The Enhanced Tactical Multi-Purpose (ET-MP) grenade will let soldiers set the grenade to fragmentation or concussive effect with the flip of a switch. The weapon is also designed for ambidextrous use so it can be both armed and thrown easily with either hand. Current grenades require a different arming procedure for left-handed users, according to the Army.

Plane Crash

Insane video: Pilot miraculously avoids death in crazy runway collision

Insane video: Pilot miraculously avoids death in crazy runway collision

Hold on to your hats folks, because the video you’re about to see is positively insane. At the National Championship Air Races in Reno, Nevada this past Sunday – an event where planes race each other thousands of feet up in the air – pilot Thom Richard noticed that something was amiss with his engine while on the runway.

Following protocol, Richard signaled that something was wrong with his plane, killed the engine, and opened up his canopy. Now normally, all of the other pilots on the runway should have been made aware of the situation so that they could keep their planes at bay and let Richard get out of harms way. Unfortunately, not all the planes on the runway received the  message. Before you know it, a plane was speeding down the runway, barreling towards Richard who at this point was effectively helpless.

‘Star Wars’-style speeders could carry US troops

Remember those speeder bikes in Star Wars that raced through the air? Soldiers and Marines may get to zoom around the battlespace on a type of real-life version in the not-so-distant future.

The new vehicle (which flies using rotors) has been dubbed the Joint Tactical Aerial Resupply Vehicle, or JTARV. Malloy Aeronautics and SURVICE Engineering Company teamed up to further develop Malloy’s Hoverbike for the U.S. Army Research Laboratory.

NSA Mathematicians

Can you solve these brain teasers written by the NSA’s top mathematicians?

Can you solve these brain teasers written by the NSA’s top mathematicians?

When one thinks of institutions and places that house some of the brightest mathematical minds on the planet, one tends to think of companies like Google and academic institutions like MIT and Cal Tech. But flying somewhat underneath the radar is the National Security Agency (NSA), the famed intelligence agency that was unwittingly thrust into the spotlight following Edward Snowden’s massive leak of classified NSA material.

The NSA likely houses the largest group of world-class cryptographers and mathematicians than any other place in the world. Suffice it to say, if you’re mathematically inclined and want to make it at the NSA, you don’t just need to be good at math, you need to uniquely excel at it.
