It happened in India so I'm sure he'll be fine.
..and again, LL's racism is inaccurate: "I guess he missed the "srippery ren ret " sign" — like, no.. this is India, not China or Korea.. come on, people; be better than this ;)

.. not a surprise to see the very Chinese-looking streets. Not much conscience there.

"screwing w/ the volume knob seems to get it to switch for me "
I can only hear "Laurel" :( .. messed with volume and tried with headphones and regular PC speakers.. just not hearing a "y" sound anywhere.

"kitty goes after shoe"
aww <3 :) .. looks like kitty started switching to snack searchey mode towards the end :D

"the episode punishment was pretty good too"
lol :D .. sort of different from their usual public humiliation; they didn't give him much of a chance to wiggle out of doing that wrong :D


"i guess she was getting alarmingly close as he walked towards her"
Yeah, umm.. what? .. He approaches *her*... that really is just awful awful training. Even the "Take one more step and I will shoot you" was bad — like, no.. give options for positive outcomes, don't just tempt the negative one(s). And some of the idiot comments.. the other side of the argument seems to be that the cop might have been protecting others by shooting her.. yeah fucking right. This was gross incompetence.

..Imgur keeps pretending that they don't care about some sort of royal wedding that's happening and about some kind of large amount of media coverage that it's being given.. but they keep posting lots of memes about it... like.. if you don't care.. then don't care.

But here was a cute kitty:

FL - Naked Gulf Breeze man tasered after walking through neighborhood, carrying cooking oil


... Musso was completely naked and had an erection, according to the report. He was reportedly standing near a red pickup truck and was holding a plastic bottle with cooking oil.

Musso attempted to run around the truck to avoid the deputy, but the deputy caught up to him and removed the bottle of cooking oil from his hand, the report states.

Amid heavy rainfall, the deputy tried to handcuff Musso but the man allegedly slipped away and started to run through the yard toward the street.

He continued to run down the middle of the street, even after the deputy drew his Taser and commanded Musso to stop.

The deputy eventually fired his Taser at Musso, forcing him to fall to the ground on his back. Musso was handcuffed and placed in a patrol vehicle.

Musso, who lives in the Woodlawn Way neighborhood, told deputies he receives sexual gratification by being naked in public, the report states.

He said he was carrying the cooking oil because he liked to rub it on his legs.

Musso allegedly told authorities that he was not aroused by the sight of any individual in the area, but was aroused by being naked in the rain.

Cougar kills mountain biker, injures another in Washington state

The cougar appeared to be stalking two men as they rode their bikes over the weekend in the Cascade Mountains near Seattle. Then suddenly the animal charged, the survivor of the fatal cougar attack told authorities.

The survivor said he hit the cougar in the head with his mountain bike, and the animal ran into the woods. But as the men were catching their breath and getting back on the bicycles, the animal returned and fastened its mouth on the man's head, crunching down, shaking him side to side like prey.

The man managed to get loose from the cougar when the animal decided to chase the man's friend, who was running away.

...

When the cougar released him, Sederbaum jumped back on his mountain bike to get away. As he looked back, he saw the cougar dragging Brooks into the woods.

http://www...mountain-biker-dead/index.html

so each guy fled as the cougar was attacking their friend... i suppose its apt the first to flee got taken out in the end

I wonder if cougars like the taste of people? The gore details don't mention how much was eaten.. but these were apparently fat people, so running away and being tired and unable to help makes sense? They never publish the important stuff ;)

The Onion got me to look at the real story behind one of their "Voices" articles..
"A 14th human foot — this one in a hiking boot — washes ashore in Canada"
[Washington Post: May 13th, 2018 Article]
http://www...rect=on&utm_term=.e41e6d8c6932
Article TLDR:
Probably not a serial killer. Most of the feet have been accounted for (traced to likely suicides and stuff), "Autopsies indicated the feet had not been mechanically removed but rather separated through the natural processes that occur in a marine environment," and "the materials used to make modern-day running shoes allow the feet to remain buoyant after they become separated from the rest of the body in the sea."

"Desperate Starbucks Now Pleading For People To Masturbate, Use Drugs In Its Restrooms"
[Onion: News in Brief]
http://www...-people-to-masturba-1826200909
"SEATTLE, WA—In an effort to restore the company’s battered image in the wake of recent controversies, desperate Starbucks officials openly begged Monday for people to masturbate and use drugs in the coffee shop chain’s restrooms. “Please, just come in and do whatever the hell you want in the bathroom—feel free to shoot up or whack off—we’ll give you the code, no questions asked,” said Starbucks spokesperson Haley Drage, clarifying that, if a customer wished to stimulate their genitalia to the point of orgasm or snort a line of cocaine elsewhere in the store, they were also more than welcome to do so among the tables, while waiting in line, or behind the service counter. “We implore customers to just visit our locations. You don’t even have to buy anything; in fact, if you can provide proof you’ve masturbated or taken drugs in one of our stores, you can visit the counter for a free tall beverage of your choice. Come on, please just do this for us. Please?” At press time, the manager of a Starbucks in Phoenix, AZ had reportedly called the police on a black customer after he failed to masturbate or do any drugs within the first five minutes of his visit."

in semi-naked Florida man news:

An irate Wendy’s customer managed to get the entire restaurant shut down on Saturday night after climbing up to the roof, stripping to his underwear, and screaming at people walking by.

Timothy Weber, 31, reportedly climbed atop of a Wendy’s in St. Augustine, Fla., following an argument with someone inside the restaurant.

An officer later attempted to scale a ladder and speak with Weber on the roof, but was stopped by Weber, who was holding a large block of wood over his head, threatening to hit him with it.

Weber later used the same block of wood to smash lights along the ledge of the restaurant’s roof, doing about $2,000 worth of damage.

Police say Weber finally climbed down from the roof after four and a half hours. He was arrested and charged with criminal mischief and assault on an officer or firefighter.

State Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood tried everything he could today to convince a 30-year-old man to move out of his parents' Camillus house on his own.

But after half an hour of back-and-forth, primarily between the son, Michael Rotondo, and the judge, the judge had had enough:

Rotondo would have to move out, the judge ruled. He also ordered adult protective services to investigate, expressing concern about what was going on.

That order capped a surreal 30-minute court appearance in which Rotondo didn't deny that his parents had given him multiple orders to leave their 408 Weatheridge Drive home. But Rotondo wasn't going to leave without a legal battle.


Greenwood listened quietly to Michael Rotondo's argument that he was entitled to six months more time. He gently corrected Rotondo by pointing to an appellate court decision ruling that family members don't get special treatment absent rare circumstances. And he praised Rotondo for his legal research.

But Rotondo wasn't having any of it.

Greenwood called the son's demand for six more months "outrageous."

Rotondo called the judge's eviction order "outrageous."

"cops keep urging guy to break into his home when his girlfriend has locked him out... he finally does it & some trouble ensues"

..I don't even know whose side to take.. probably the boyfriend's, actually, since the girlfriend could have had the police mediate a peaceable moving out, but instead she just buttoned the place up. I knew someone who did that: broke up and made it super uncomfortable for her BF to pick up his stuff by calling the police when he showed up (he announced ahead of time) for his things. In that situation, there had never been any violence or intimidation in the relationship, so it was like, "Why would you be mean like that? Just let him get his things." I think she was just pissed that she'd wasted so much time with him ;p

..
"original skit:"

Had never seen that :D ... a little bit uncomfortable in this version :p

..
"Got an Evel Catnievel over here."

Pretty cool, right? :D .. surprising that it was at all willing to make that jump. That's the kind of cat I'd like — not loser cats like my [former] friend's who treated her cat like a home-schooled maladaptive and never let it outside even though cats crave adventure. It's like: yeah, it's dangerous out, and your cat may die.. but better that than never letting it *liiiiiiivvvvvve!!!* ;p

..
"cops don't appreciate guy taking away their chance to detonate something"

lulz.. that cyclist knew the non-bureaucratic solution... kind of fun to cut through red tape with common sense, but police really do have their hands tied by procedure on calls like that.

"FRANKLIN, TN—Wiping away bittersweet tears as the lights dimmed and the lovely couple took the floor for the first time as widower and wife, attendees at the funeral of Martha Bowers got misty-eyed Thursday during the traditional first dance with the corpse. “You could just see the love in [Phillip Bowers’] eyes when he took her flaccid hand in his and guided her carefully to the dance floor, and everyone was amazed at how beautiful she looked in her burial dress,” said longtime family friend Clara Adler, tearing up along with the couple’s other friends and loved ones as the opening strains of Etta James’ “At Last” filled the funeral parlor. “Just seeing her out there, swaying along with him, draped over his shoulder for the first time in this new stage of their, you know, their lives...it’s so touching. You can see tears glistening in his eyes. This is the moment when he knows—it’s forever.” At press time, the funeral attendees had taken the floor and joined a conga line led by Mrs. Bower’s earthly remains."

Two weeks ago, a woman in Portland learned that her Amazon Echo device had recorded and sent a private conversation between her and her husband to one of his employees in Seattle without their knowledge.

According to Amazon, Alexa misunderstood their discussion about hardwood floors as a series of commands to send their conversation to the man in Seattle. In a statement to Gizmodo, the online shopping giant confirmed that the Echo device “woke up due to a word in background conversation sounding like ‘Alexa.’” The statement continued:

Then, the subsequent conversation was heard as a “send message” request. At which point, Alexa said out loud “To whom?” At which point, the background conversation was interpreted as a name in the customers contact list. Alexa then asked out loud, “[contact name], right?” Alexa then interpreted background conversation as “right.” As unlikely as this string of events is, we are evaluating options to make this case even less likely.

It wasn't too popular, but I remember it because the opening cinematic was neat (it sort of sampled from LOTR's ring thing: "Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky..."), and I played the demo a *lot* (never the full version) so I got really good at getting a lot done on the demo map ;D .. it was basically just turn-based space expansion.

"Waste Of Time: Starbucks Closed Down For Anti-Bias Training Today Even Though We’ve Moved On And Are Mad About Other Things Now"
[Clickhole: Blog]
http://res...-for-anti-bias-trai-1826399378
"Now that the whole story about two innocent black men being arrested in one of its stores is a distant memory, Starbucks has made the baffling decision to waste a huge amount of everyone’s time and attention today by closing down for anti-bias training even though the #Resistance has moved on and we’re mad about other things now. What a pointless move by Starbucks to address a now-boring issue we already got all mad about last month instead of protesting an outrage that we actually care about.

It would have been an awesome gesture if Starbucks were closing down today so it could address something we’re mad about right now, like the racist Twitter rant Roseanne Barr went on this morning, but instead the Seattle-based coffee franchise is holding a now-useless racial-discrimination training because of an outrage that we barely even remember and stopped tweeting about weeks ago and that basically has nothing to do with the stuff we’re currently furious about, like President Trump.

Listen, Starbucks, if you really wanted to help out the #Resistance, you’d be holding a seminar about something like Trump’s boneheaded Memorial Day tweet, or the Russia investigation. So please, stop wasting everyone’s time rehashing that racism thing that practically happened last decade and start talking about the things we’re mad about right now."

I'm in LA for a few days visiting family... my sister-in-law says that Starbucks policy really is causing problems with homeless people and drugs, so that other Onion piece not too off. I didn't ask about the masturbating element :p. I imagine some bathing going on in the bathrooms though.

Until today, I forgot to check if 5sf did a "Cinco de Mayo" video this year (kind of a tradition of theirs). They did:
"The Reckoning of Cinco de Mayo"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nAzlxbyiwQ
They actually built the buttroxx.com website for the video (a satire of people who cry, "White privilege"). Fun quote from the buttroxx "About" page: "I got bullied mercilessly by everyone in high school, including teachers, and I’ve still never met anyone as mean as the staff at Buttroxx. They’re the best. — Burt Gempfer, Vox.com"

the homeless seem to be prospering (in that there appears to be more around)

I got to see a black guy being arrested... they had him sitting on the curb, and when they told him to lay down he stood up, so for a brief moment there was hope of some action... but nothing went down and they just cuffed him standing and put him in a car :/

More slave morality logic:
"Oregon Bakery Fires Employees For Denying Black Woman Service After Closing"
http://abc...ck-woman-service-after-closing
TLDR: Two white women enter a bakery after its closing time. They're told that the bakery is closed. A black woman then enters and is told the same thing. The black woman claims racism ( http://www.facebook.com/1417321/videos/10102370907379415 ), and the bakery fires the employees, explaining, "this is more about how a black woman was made to feel"

a weird thing going on here in LA of young people lining up to get into overpriced clothing stores... including sidewalk barricades and bouncers to keep order

And the stores seem to have plenty of room inside for more people, not crowded at all looking

'Supreme' and 'Golf' both on Fairfax seemed to have lines all day... a $200 polka dot jacket was first/only thing I looked at on Supreme's website

Denver Uber Driver Arrested After Passenger Found Shot Dead

Actor Bigglesbee Cogglesvitch, who plays detective Sherlock Holmes in the television series Sherlock, foiled an attempted robbery by fighting off a gang of muggers in London. The attack occurred near his fictional character's home on Baker Street.


Uber driver Manuel Dias, 53, told The Sun, "I was taking Bumblezot and his wife to a club — but I didn't know it was him at first."

"I went to turn down into Marylebone High Street and we saw four guys were pushing around a Deliveroo cyclist. My passenger jumped out, ran over and pulled the men away. They turned towards him and things looked like they were getting worse, so I joined in. He stood there instructing them in the street, shouting, 'Leave him alone.' "

"Then it all got a bit surreal. Here was Sherlock Holmes fighting off four attackers just round the corner from Baker Street," Dias continued. "I had hold of one lad and Frodobick another. He seemed to know exactly what he was doing. He was very brave. He did most of it, to be honest. They tried to hit him, but he defended himself and pushed them away. He wasn't injured. Then I think they also recognized it was Zizzlewatt and ran away."

i slept in an airport last night... the plane arrived fine but things were backed up so we sat on the Tarmac (w/ Jalad) for about an hour, just enough to miss the connecting flight that didn't wait a minute for the at least 6 of us doing same connection sitting out there

there had to have been at least 100 people lined up at the customer service counter where we got off the plane, not sure how many planes total were sitting around... they should let people just walk off & use the employee doors... or use the shuttle buses...

the nice thing is they provided lots of cots, a cheap pillow & blanket, bottle of water, a bag w/ toothbrush/mouthwash/light-blocking blindfold... not sure i slept ever but was better than sitting

(got a flight 12 hrs later than original, home now)

Tarmac! And Jalad! At, the airport! ;)
Surprising that the other plane didn't wait. Usually the airlines all agree to delay flights a little so that they don't have to pay for hotels. Maybe a pilot got impatient or the Excel spreadsheet said it would be cheaper to inconvenience people? Either way, flying always seems awful.
Welcome home! \:D/


"Wow lots to be annoyed at in that Oregon article... like why is Lilian in quotes each time?... and they basically admit they caved only to public misinformation... and racist 'reparations happy hour'..."

..Oh I didn't notice the quotation marks thing... that article has some grammatical errors aside from that, so probably ABC St. Louis needs a better editor ;p
..And def funny that they outright admitted that a subjective perception was more important than the wider reality — they even admit that nothing racist actually happened. Makes me think it would be fun to own a business where employees were told that they can outright tell asshole customers to fuck off >:D
..the reparations thing is hilarious. That's part of the extreme result of racial guilt: people who think that a restart via wealth redistribution would be a functional solution.
..the Twitter that ABC used has continued to track the story: http://twi...ck-woman-service-after-closing .. some of the things that the business owners said were pretty funny, like how they want to create "inclusive spaces for community to gather around inclusive food" ... "inclusive food"? wut? I keep wanting this to turn out to be a big hoax.

..
The pink wall looks like a Paul Smith shop? That *does* seem familiar from movies or something, but definitely not as cool as the Griffith Observatory :p

"maybe if they branded people who accept the reparations happy hour to mark them as repaid, it would be more fair"

That's a good idea! >:p .. at the very least, there should be a box in tax forms that asks a person's yearly reparations gains. ;)
