the academic environment

by some weird and shambling way, i bumbled across the Joint Special Operations University website.  Did you know there existed such wonderful place?  JSOC U, though they are careful to call it JSOU.  Which is, frankly, suckass lame.

Hilariously, a little threatening pop-up storms the perimeter, warning infiltrators that they may be subject to "COMSEC monitoring," "penetration testing," and other horrors of the flesh.  Meanwhile, the sub-warning, one guesses one might call it, declares that JSOU is,

"a Direct Reporting Unit to USSOCOM, resides at MacDill Air Force Base, FL and is co-located with the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM)."

Upon hitting the militarized academic spectrum of JSOCU, one immediately encounters this charming introductory missive, not dissimilar to those issued potential witnesses to a crime.

ain't that the shit?  did you know you could be COMSEC monitored?  and, may i say with all due sincerity, that it is of great relief to learn that
"using this IS does not constitute consent to PM, LE, or CI investigative searching or monitoring of the content of the privileged communications,, or work product, related to person representation or services by attorneys, pysychotherapists, or clergy, and their assistants,."
whew.  gonna sleep better starting ... now!

on the other hand, at least they do tell you, right up front: expect to be spied upon.

is this sort of academic environment most folk aspire to?  happily, no.  but those that do, manage to stir up a lotta shit.  it's a special few.  if there were more, we'd all be dead.

ever see a "university"pop up shit like that from their website?  gleefully, i click, "OK"!  damn, i wanna see the shit behind this.  naturally enough, nothing at all. just branes and branes of militarized nonsense.  hammer, nail.

JSOCU.  bloody effin marvelous.
