Ann Coulter vs. Al Franken - Racial Profiling

Hello all,

I have been a little bit sick recently, hence the lack of daily updates. I am just breaking the cusp of my flu now so I should be back to the races shortly. For now I have a question to you all:

What is your view on Racial Profiling?

I watched the video below recently and was shocked to hear what Ann Coulter had to say nearing the end. Skip to around 6:50 you can hear her rant.

I was sickened by this as she is demonstrating a severe lack of understanding. In my opinion it seems as though she does not have the slightest inclination of how airport security functions, let alone that it is not the liberal left who is keeping racial profiling from occuring. Racial profiling is occuring, and it is a very unfortunate thing. One of my friends who I go to university with is just about to finish his degree in engineering here in Canada, and yet every time he goes to the U.S. he gets hastled to the point where he has to exit his car and go have his fingerprints matched. This means any border crossing takes around an extra hour to hour and a half. What is the reason for this? He is Arab looking.

This is very unforunate because it not only affects him but anyone he is friends with as well. We were planning to all go down to the states for a day trip until he pointed out that if we were to do so our car would undoubtedly be pulled aside and the border crossing would take around 4 hours (including traffic). In my opinion that is completely unnaceptable. So what do you think?

IQ Puzzle #15 - Explanation

So the answer is H. You are all correct :p.

I actually made a mistake when I labelled it Medium haha, I see you guys felt this was far too easy so the next one I post will be a throwback to when I first started and Medium's were virtually impossible.

In case anyone did not understand the answer to this it was basically a series called the fibonacci series in which the previous two numbers are added together to generate the next in the series. For example 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 shows how 1+1=2, 1+2=3 and 2+3=5.

Hence all you had to do for this really was add together the last to numbers, 13 and 21, and you would realize you are looking for H, which had 34 in it. The orientation of the dots was simply a rotation around the central axis based off of the next number to be completed. This is most easily seen between 5 and 8 where 8 ends up in the same orientation (left side) as 5 because 8 is two full rotations of 4.

I am sorry it was so easy, I am working on one right now to blow your minds.

Shout out to linus who beat out convictus for the top spot. Welcome to the Leaderboard!

TF2 - Screenshots, K/D Ratio

Just a super quick update from a match I played recently where I absolutely dominated. I started off as Scout, my worst class and ended up dominating so I decided to switch to my worst class, Heavy and here are the results:

 I ended up getting 20 kills in one life when I switched to Heavy, skyrocketing my K/D ratio to over 7.0!
I felt so invincible in this game and I attribute my play being so much better to a tip I heard where you turn on "dings" so that you can hear when you hit your enemys. This has improved my game durastically. Any of you have tips for TF2?

IQ Puzzle #14 - Explanation

The answer to this puzzle was very close to a few of my previous puzzles. If you take each number and convert it to a letter based off of A=1, B=2 etc. you are left with this:

Where the hint about the leaderboard was referencing the current leader, Convictus. The puzzle spelled out his name in numbers rather than letters. I figured I would bring up the idea of one of you doing a guest puzzle again, is there any interest?
