What do police officers think about the “Never talk to a police officer, EVER” video.

I have seen the “Never talk to a police officer, EVER” video.  While every single thing the lawyer said is true, his examples are not very realistic or common. 

It is your right to refuse to answer questions from a police officer who stops you (this DOES NOT apply to identifying yourself).  However, refusing to talk to a police officer, especially when you haven’t done anything illegal, does not help you at the moment.

Why is wrestling the most important skill to have in MMA?

Joe Rogan on wrestling:

“We said it a million times but it bears repeating. Wrestling is the greatest skill to have in MMA because wrestling dictates where the fight takes place.

On top of that, amateur wrestling training is so unbelievably grueling that the guys who get through it are the guys who rise to the top are the elite of the elite when it comes to mental toughness. That is a huge part of fighting. Mental toughness and focus and the ability to work hard to achieve goals under exceedingly insurmountable circumstances.”

Other Commentator: “You must embrace the grind as they say.”

Rogan: “That’s a nice way of putting it but they go through hell. That’s not a grind you know….Amateur wrestling practice is a constant exercise in over training, dehydration, and maintaining your momentum and maintaining your motivation in incredibly uncomfortable moments.”

high iq

What’s it like to have an extremely high IQ?

Years ago, aged eighteen, I joined MENSA. I left after a year, having seen ample evidence to support the old description of MENSA as “The society for people impressed by their own intelligence”. In truth, the whole organisation was creepy. Anyway, when I applied they sent me an IQ test which you sent in to be scored. If you scored highly enough they asked you to attend a monitored exam. I scored 158 on the test at home and 159 when I went to London to be tested.

I have never encountered anything, either at school, university or at work that has been intellectually difficult for me. I got an English degree and a law degree and barely worked to get either. My memory has always served me well. I quickly see patterns that others don’t seem to notice (that’s your IQ test sewn up right there) and just find concepts come easier to me than to a lot of other people. I do get bored with most subjects quite quickly but, so far, so good.

How is World War II taught in German Schools?

When you grow up here and you are still rather young, you get the sense that you (as in Germans) fucked up in the past and its a lingering feeling but you are too young to understand or make sense of it.

As in you might wave to someone with your right arm and hold it up to long and someone scolds you for it or a parent quickly tells you to lower your arm and they try to tell you why.

In short Every german Student has at least 5+ years of history that is either directly or indirectly about WW2 and it’s effects on the world we live in today.

Although interview puzzles are less common these days–with Google demphasizing or doing away them–if you’re going for a job in Silicon Valley or just want to check out some interview brainteasers, here are examples of challenging interview questions that have made smart people feel very dumb.

hollywood agent

What does a Hollywood agent actually do?

When I was starting in the industry I worked at a major agency. I am no longer in representation. When someone is a star they often require more negotiation. They get a piece of the back end (if the film makes money they get money) or what is more popular now because of wonky Hollywood accounting are box office bonuses. The film makes $100M you get $250k bonus for example. If there are multiple stars I’ve seen deals where the first person that signs on has some protection that their salary matches the other star that joins if it ends up being higher. But even just the base pay is always a negotiation and an agent has connections at the studio or wherever and is better equipped to gauge how much the production can afford. Does the actor just want max money? Do they want to roll the dice on an indie film for less money? Oh but wait, the indie is financed by the daughter of a billionaire – maybe they can get more. How you’re credited, getting a say in the poster art, what kind of trailer you get or the hotel you stay at. What kind of flights you take. All get negotiated. My point is that there is a lot of nuance that an actor might not even be aware of unless they spend their entire day trying to keep their finger on the pulse of the industry. At which point are they really saving money or are they basically taking on a second lower paying job?

What’s the deal with fighting in Hockey?

In hockey, fighting isn’t seen as a way to injure someone, like it would be in “real life”. There is a code of sportsmanship in hockey that goes beyond the rules of the game. When that code is broken, players will square off against the offender in defense of themselves or a teammate. For instance, it’s not a penalty to intentionally bump the goaltender after play is whistled dead, but occasionally someone will. This is viewed as especially unsportsmanlike, so one of the goaltender’s teammates will pick a fight with the player who bumped him in order to impress that behavior like that won’t be tolerated, even if there isn’t a rule against it. Essentially, if another player is acting in such a way that is considered unsportsmanlike, he might be challenged to a fight by a member of the opposing team. A player might also choose to fight as a means to motivate his team, especially during high-tension and high-pressure situations, and especially in the playoffs.

Where do sexual fetishes come from and why do we have them?

As long as we’re properly separating out “fetish” (a trigger needed to experience sexual pleasure) from “sexual orientation” (who or what we are sexually attracted to), it’s largely psychological, based on early connections between sexual pleasure and a specific thing or experience.

One sociology professor of mine told a story of a man he had once counseled who had a doorknob fetish. He was unable to experience any sexual pleasure without holding onto a doorknob, and he kept boxes of them under his bed which, needless to say, was causing some friction in his marriage. Tracing it back, they realized that growing up, he’d had to masturbate in secret or risk being severely punished by his overly religious mother. Gripping tight to the doorknob to keep his mother from unexpectedly entering while he masturbated formed a lasting association that took decades to unravel.

What’s it like to have big boobs?

My breasts aren’t enormous to the point of looking disproportionate to my body, but they are definitely very large, and I’ve gotten a lot of comments from people because of them.

I remember when I first started getting boobs, I hoped for cute, perky, small ones like the kinds I saw on strong female characters in movies and TV shows. Big-breasted women were always the dumb, overly-sexualized bimbos in the media.

So when my boobs reached DD status by the beginning of high school, I was far from pleased. I remember people I knew, especially my mother, commenting on my boobs a lot, and so I began hiding then under baggy T-shirts and sweaters. I didn’t like how sexualized I became just for wearing a V-neck in public, while my sister could wear flimsy spaghetti straps without a problem. People stared at me a lot, both men and women. It didn’t feel good.

How feasable is it to escape a prison by jumping the fence?

You, an inmate, think you have found a weakness on my fence line. My Fence Line consists of 2, 14ft. Tall, topped with Rolls of GLEAMING RAZORS, Razor Wire, Twisted and Triple Bladed, which my Sergeant in charge of Razorwire Installation, Sergeant B. manually created this twisted razorwire design.

One roll at the very top, 2 straddling each side, eight rolls down the fence on each side to the ground. Stacked as a pyramid from the ground to underneath the top three rolls. Imagine if you will, the entire perimeter is the jaws of the mouth of a HUGE GREAT WHITE SHARK, WITH MULTIPLE ROWS OF STEEL TEETH.

Well, right after the 7:45p Yard closing for Master Roster count, depending on daylight savings time. You, ( Gangster/Mobster/Escape Artist Extrordinaire, inmate in question), decide to HIT (Slang for Use), what you perceive, is a blind spot, on my Fence Line. Specifically, The Tower casts a shadow towards the inner perimeter fence in Zone 18. You have a couple of blankets and jackets, that you stashed to use as cover over the razorwire. (Keep in mind, this is going on while, Master Roster count is happening.)
