I hope this won't turn political, but I find this very interesting and worth of discussion. While the U.S. waged a war in Vietnam 50 years ago with 2.7 million men conscripted from every segment of society, less than one-half of 1% of the U.S. population is in the armed services today - the lowest rate since World War II. America's recent wars are authorized by a U.S. Congress whose members have the lowest rate of military service in history, led by three successive commanders in chief who never served on active duty The U.S. military today is gradually becoming a separate warrior class, many analysts say, that is becoming increasingly distinct from the public it is charged with protecting. Most of the country has experienced little, if any, personal impact from the longest era of war in U.S. history. But those in uniform have seen their lives upended by repeated deployments to war zones,,,, http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/us-military-and-civilians-are-increasingly-divided/ar-BBkaN9f?ocid=OIE9MSE  I wonder what the long-term effect will be on this.

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/john-nash-nobel-prize-winner-subject-beautiful-mind-killed-crash-n363901  John Nash, winner of the Nobel prize in economics and the subject of the movie "A Beautiful Mind," was killed with his wife Saturday in a car crash in New Jersey, according to state police. Nash and his wife, Alicia, were traveling in a taxi on the New Jersey Turnpike in Middlesex County when it hit a guardrail, killing both at the scene, New Jersey State Police Sgt. Gregory Williams said Sunday morning. The cab driver and a person in another car involved in the crash were brought to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Williams said. Actor Russell Crowe, who played Nash in the movie based on the 1998 biography, tweeted Sunday morning, "Stunned ... my heart goes out to John & Alicia & family. An amazing partnership. Beautiful minds, beautiful hearts." Nash, 86, married Alicia Lopez-Harrison de Lardé in 1957, but two years later, while she was pregnant, he was afflicted with "mental disturbances," according to a short autobiography on the Nobel Prize website . Their son, John Charles Martin Nash, was born shortly after Nash was admitted to the hospital for schizophrenia treatment. After a time in the hospital, Nash wrote he reverted to "thinking of myself as a human of more conventional circumstances and return to mathematical research." He was awarded the Nobel Economics Prize for his research in game theory in 1994. He and his wife had divorced in 1963, but stayed close and were remarried in 2001, according to his biography. Nash and his wife had recently traveled back from Norway, where he received the 2015 Abel Prize , awarded to outstanding mathematicians, Tuesday from Norway's King Harald V.

TRICKMIND WROTE: ------------------------- It's not going to be Shirin. Shirin is too smart to make the same mistake twice, she won't be annoying that early in the game I hope it's Kelley W or Ciera. Shirin has no self awareness. Realistically, Im giving her about a 10% chance to make the merge and that all depends on things that are out of her control like tribe swaps and being on a dominant tribe in challenges.
I say Abi Maria. Because Kass is too obvious.
