Late Night Open Thread: Russian Assets in Harness


 
This is, of course, potential serious spycraft. And yet, the jokes are irresistable (probably NSFW)…

Does this guy’s BDSM harness also say ‘Equipment of St. Petersburg?

    Would it be inapproriate to discuss how to effectively apply itching powder to fives?

    Am I right to assume Roger will be suitably attired at some time in his stage appearance?

    Why put a camera harness on a whale? What military use would anyone have for the images? And what species of whale is it anyway?

    Frankly, I’d be amazed if he’s the only “Roger Stone” in the porn racket.

    Why put a camera harness on a whale?

    Because the damn sharks wouldn’t sit still?

    Because you can.

    What military use would anyone have for the images?

    That’s classified.

    And what species of whale is it anyway?

    Killer whale, obviously.

    You are welcome.

    Once you know, you can never unknow. Do you still want to know?

    Excellent questions, and the only wild speculations I have involve the Russian government’s determination to possess all the oil resources of the newly frost-free Arctic Ocean. Assuming this whale isn’t just a victim of ‘normal’ natural-history research, I’d guess that whales can go further and much deeper than even the most sophisticated robot technology (which Russian can’t afford anyways).

    With luck, Adam or Cheryl will eventually be able to tell us whether this is actually ‘spycraft’, or just another rumor in the Game of Mirrors….

    Not true, the Marianas Trench:

    Descents

    Four descents have been achieved. The first was the manned descent by Swiss-designed, Italian-built, United States Navy-owned bathyscaphe Trieste which reached the bottom at 1:06 pm on 23 January 1960, with Don Walsh and Jacques Piccard on board.[13][22] Iron shot was used for ballast, with gasoline for buoyancy.[13] The onboard systems indicated a depth of 11,521 m (37,799 ft), but this was later revised to 10,916 m (35,814 ft).[23] The depth was estimated from a conversion of pressure measured and calculations based on the water density from sea surface to seabed.[22]

    This was followed by the unmanned ROVs Kaikō in 1996 and Nereus in 2009. The first three expeditions directly measured very similar depths of 10,902 to 10,916 m (35,768 to 35,814 ft). The fourth was made by Canadian film director James Cameron in 2012. On 26 March, he reached the bottom of the Mariana Trench in the submersible vessel Deepsea Challenger.[24][25][26]

    In July 2015, members of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Oregon State University, and the Coast Guard submerged a hydrophone into the deepest part of the Mariana Trench, the Challenger Deep, never having deployed one past a mile. The titanium-shelled hydrophone was designed to withstand the immense pressure 7 miles under.[27] Although researchers were unable to retrieve the hydrophone until November, the data capacity was full within the first 23 days. After months of analyzing the sounds, the experts were surprised to pick up natural and man-made sounds such as boats, earthquakes, a typhoon, and baleen whales.[28] Due to the mission’s success, the researchers announced plans to deploy a second hydrophone in 2017 for an extended period of time.

    @Anne Laurie:

    There is no light at those depths, so I am not sure how a camera would work. I can’t imagine it would have a flash. But then I am not a Russian scientist putting a camera on a whale.

    Did the “whale” happen to have a fake-tan orange complexion, and bad hair?

    I’m kind of stunned that I’m the first one to bring that up.

    “No, Roger, noone expects you to dance. Please put your clothes on.”

    (tho the image of Stone having to scrounge for singles off a strip club floor is a vision even Dante might have balked at…do they make fake bills with Hillary’s face on them?)

    I’d assume that the mount could have many different types of sensors attached, specifically magnetic and acoustic

    OPps, I meant Amir

    Somehow, I’m juxtapositioning “Roger Stone->strip club->harness” and coming up with some gruesome images…

    No, not for me. Not enough in the whole world!!! But to watch Roger…?? maybe not for that either.

    ETA: You would think that this crew would do better at finding humor in Roger Stone appearing at a strip club to raise money for his legal defense… but maybe just not there?
