During the Civil War the Confederates instituted the draft and conscripted their citizens. The rich people paid 300$ to make someone else (usually people who had already served their draft) enlist on their behalf. I think there was one case of one enterprising Southerner who enlisted several dozen times (and then deserting at the first opportunity).
Wondering if all the hospital networks are already compromised beyond repair. If the doctors use same passwords for their hospital account as well as their personal account, they too would be very vulnerable. Some of the doctors I know are surgeons who would wield a scalpel with great confidence and would think it is routine to make a 20 cm long incision across the stomach. But are scared of the stupid computer and were mortally afraid of changing the password, or the default screen saver.
10 times body length per second is impressive on its own for under water bodies. I suspect the reason is the shrinking of the head as water is ejected out of the nozzle as it moves. In underwater craft, the vehicle has to displace the fluid around it, make room for itself and then occupy that space as it moves forward. Water is incompressible for all practical purposes. Water is a very heavy fluid, 1000 times the density of air ( 1 Kg/m^3 for air, 1000 Kg/m^3 for water). It takes lots of power to set that much of water in motion to move it out of the way. But octopi have an unusual mode of propulsion, its head will fill with water slowly and then when it moves its head is shrinking, it does not have to move that much water out of the way as it moves forward. That probably accounts for the relative speed.
Again, it is impressive for an octopi with tiny brains capable of just predicting football match winners. They could not have solved the Navier-Stokes equations and figured this out.
