What's been in my bag this week? (20150815)

I seem to have gone a bit wild with my new tool. I promise that future posts will be a bit shorter. My other excuse is that some of the below is fall-out from "the silly season", that week or two after DEFCON where news gets a bit odd. It's amplified slightly, this year, by election "theater" starting early.
