A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    Nerds who appear "different" and "awkward" and "unkempt" in public are avoided and isolated, making them feel bitter and rejected, and making them susceptible to recruitment by terrorists. Yet you don't see lonely nerds joining terrorist groups and turning to violence and shooting up nightclubs. Not even terrorists want nerds. Nobody wants nerds.

    We generally also have very strong, strange sense of morals. I've observed that there is an overwhelmingly consistent sense that harming people, and especially murder is fundamentally wrong.

    You haven't heard of engineers being recruited by ISIS? It doesn't hurt that teenage girls are flowing into the group mostly by themselves.
