I wonder how many people believed in that cleric's resurrection powers ;p

That "What's That Name?" sketch got a little preachy with the matriarchal-feminist straw man situations, but the "chaos" part was nice and that random turn with "the squad" (starting 3:33) broke the narrative enough to be funny :D

Mark Anthony Jones, 46, told police in Marion that he was taking a morning walk when the Hi-Point 9mm handgun he was carrying in his waistband “began to slip”.

Jones told police that when he “reached down to adjust” the unholstered gun, it discharged, shooting a bullet that “entered just above his penis and exited his scrotum”.

So... that's bazaar.
I won't feign outrage and will accept the explanation that it's fictitious and designed for a very niche audience, and apparently it could actually be approved since Valve began allowing pornographic content in September 2018 and has previously allowed rape to be depicted..

On the Steam page the game creator explains that he removed a scene involving baby-killing (total bummer) because it might cause "avalanches of outrage", but on the same topic he wrote that the planned killing wasn't even violent (a comical "punting" on screen or an off screen drowning) because he doesn't "particularly like blood, gore, bruising, scratches, etc. so none of this is shown in the game." So pretty much the entire zombie aspect is just a background plot fuel for a string of poorly-animated 3-choice rape scenarios such as..
1. "[rape person 1]"
2. "[rape person 2]"
3. "[do not rape anyone... (for now?)]"
..so it's an even more poorly-animated Rapelay with a zombie apocalypse justification for unchecked immorality... imagine wasting 2 years of your life on something that badly done ;D

..
I don't think the person using dental floss to remove a ring was an actual engineer, so this looks like more engineer glorification ;p

..
"use of paws is totally cheating"

+1
They need to do re-shoots.. maybe someone could be under the table holding its paws down or put it in some kind of net where only its head fits through :p

..
"this looks odd..."

There *has* to be a better way! :D

"Woman Adopts Second Cat For First One To Terrorize While She At Work"
[Onion: News in Brief]
(mostly just a good headline)

"God Purges Millions Of Souls From Heaven Now That Sexual Assault Being Taken More Seriously"
[Onion: News in Brief]
"THE HEAVENS—Attempting to do His part in holding abusers accountable amid the rise of the #MeToo movement, God, our heavenly Father, announced Tuesday that He would supervise the purging of millions of souls from Heaven now that sexual assault was being taken far more seriously. “I had definitely heard many rumors, but until recently, I did not believe it was my place to get involved. Now, with everyone being more vocal about sexual misconduct, I feel that to simply do nothing would make Me complicit,” said the omnipotent and omniscient Creator in His first-ever public statement on the subject, explaining that He had met with Saint Peter to begin the process of combing through the Book of Souls and removing the names of those who had been found guilty of sexual assault or harassment at any point during their time on Earth or in Heaven. “I’ll admit it has taken Me a very, very long time to realize how serious an issue this is. But now that I’ve been made to see the truth and the light, there’s no going back. Even if the alleged incident took place years and years ago, we must do everything we can to strongly condemn such behavior. I mean, now that I think about it, what Ruth went through with Boaz’ foreman? Kinda creepy. Never should have let that one slide.” At press time, God announced plans to grant amnesty to the sexual abuse victims he had sentenced to an eternity in Hell."

Oh, if you think that people in UP tend to be retarded (e.g., Jergul), you might be grateful after reading this conversation I'm having on Imgur :D

The below is from this gif link where Alex Jones appears on the Joe Rogan podcast and says, "I'm going to be honest with you: I'm kinda retarded"
http://imgur.com/gallery/F502DaI
[PubicOvergrowth]: "But is Alex Jones serious though? Isn't it just for fun and for the attention/money?"
[CherubCow]: "If you believe his lawyer, his entire brand is considered "performance art""
[TakeRoyOffTheGrid]: "not at all what was said"
[CherubCow]: "“He’s playing a character,” Wilhite [Jones' lawyer] said of Jones. “He is a performance artist.”" ( http://www.statesman.com/news/20170418/exclusive-in-travis-county-custody-case-jury-will-search-for-real-alex-jones )
[Relevant part of article at link]: "At a recent pretrial hearing, attorney Randall Wilhite told state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo that using his client Alex Jones’ on-air Infowars persona to evaluate Alex Jones as a father would be like judging Jack Nicholson in a custody dispute based on his performance as the Joker in “Batman.”
“He’s playing a character,” Wilhite said of Jones. “He is a performance artist.”"
[TakeRoyOffTheGrid]: "This was specifically referring to him playing the character of the Joker, not his entire platform. Try again."

(Conversation Branch 1)
[CherubCow]: "Now you're moving the goal posts. You said, "not at all", which I demonstrated was false."
[TakeRoyOffTheGrid]: "You haven't demonstrated shit except for the fact you drink your own kool-aid."
[CherubCow]: "I gave you a direct quote and a link. You are clearly a troll or have zero intelligence, so we're done.
[TakeRoyOffTheGrid]: "You presented a snippet of an article which you then continued to read using your poor and or selective reading comprehension skills."

(Conversation Branch 2)
[CherubCow]: "And you also misread the article. It was not about *Jones* playing the Joker, that was an example about Nicholson."
[TakeRoyOffTheGrid]: "I didn't misread shit retard. Read it again. They used that example because the question was directly about comments he made as he was playing the joker character. Of course you and your selectively read snippet know best and anyone who disagrees is a dumb conspiracy theorist.
[CherubCow]: "lol... Wait, this is great. Let's clarify *your* comprehension: *who* do you think was "playing the joker"? :D"

...
I was ready to cut ties, but this person made me lol, which makes me at least temporarily overlook the trollishness for the sake of entertainment ;D
Kind of hoping that I get to walk him through understanding the article, but people don't like being spoken to like students when online ;p

"Woman Nervous For Boyfriend To Meet Person She Becomes Around Parents"
[Onion: News in Brief]
http://loc...-person-she-becomes-1833131233
"MOOSE LAKE, MN—Filled with dread at the thought of the upcoming relationship milestone, Erika Moreau, 30, told reporters Thursday she is nervous for dinner this evening, when her boyfriend will finally meet the person she turns into around her parents. “I just don’t know how he’s going to react—she’s a lot to take, you know?” Moreau said of the difficult, obstinate woman she is powerless to avoid becoming when in the same room as one of her parents. “This is a really big step, and I hope she doesn’t scare Trevor off. It’s tough, because my last relationship actually ended not long after my ex met her. She’s just so unpredictable. She’ll fly off the handle over the tiniest things or start giving you the silent treatment for no reason. Ugh. I really hope she doesn’t get too drunk this time.” At press time, sources confirmed Moreau and her boyfriend were stunned into silence after the suddenly irate woman interrupted dinner to scream, “I’m an adult, goddammit—don’t talk to me like I’m stupid!”"

I had a friend like this; she would get super fake when around certain people whom she was trying to impress. I'd mentally refer to her alter ego as her "Job Interview Personality", because she'd basically treat every conversation like an excuse to go down her résumé bullet points.

..good point about nothing happening before and after that collision. I forget the name of that, and, in searching, the closest I've found is "stochastic convergence" and a lot of ideas that go back to synchronicity, but those weren't the terms for which I was searching. But the idea I'm trying to find is basically that multiple, individual things will converge into a combined event, and events occur in waves. In people life it can be explained with examples like rush hour being when everyone goes home (so events converging at around 8am or 5pm), or psychologically people will rush to be where interactions will occur, which forces more converging events at those places. So rushing towards an intersection is almost too easy (even the word "intersection" itself): that's where traffic converges, so it's where one should expect any collision to occur on otherwise empty roads. Then with the "law of truly large numbers" (video footage from all over the world, this one from Thailand?), it was bound to happen eventually — plus, no traffic control devices or signs? ;p

My marathoning of Nine-Nine has almost brought me to the season 5 Tim Meadows episodes :)
In S4E18 or 19 it starts getting obvious that Chelsea Peretti ("Gina") got pregnant IRL. On her Wiki page, it says that she had a son with Jordan Peele, so that's noice ;p
In S4E21 they actually wrote the pregnancy into the show for her (unlike with Melissa Fumero ("Amy") where they only semi-acknowledged it with an episode where they pretend that Amy is wearing a pregnancy suit for an undercover mission), but the writing comes late, since the squad only *now* notices? :p
Also has been fun to see Jason Mantzoukas ("Adrian Pimento") — my kind of weirdo ;D

A mobile phone may have saved the life of a man who came under fire in an alleged bow and arrow attack in rural New South Wales.

A 43-year-old man stopped his car at his driveway at a Nimbin property on Wednesday morning and noticed a man he knew, reportedly armed with the archery gear, NSW police said.

The resident whipped out his mobile phone to take a photo of the armed man who was poised to fire.

The arrow pierced the man’s mobile phone and it hit him in the chin, causing a small cut.

Officers arrested a 39-year-old man at the scene.

The man was taken to Nimbin police station where he was charged with assault and damage to property.

"“We’ve observed a trend in which many married women, by choosing a way fucking cooler last name along the lines of Axle or Bone-Crusher, are beginning to challenge the Western patrilineal tradition,” said Professor Sarah Annihilator Kelman, adding that the assumption that the man’s name will automatically be taken in marriage has become outmoded as women realize nothing prevents them from calling themselves Blade, Scab, or anything else that just sounds awesome. “Especially for women who have worked hard to establish themselves professionally, taking someone else’s name can make them feel as if they’re losing a part of who they are, so this is a way for them to maintain their identity—and vastly improve upon it. In the 21st century, a woman can become Mrs. Shredder or Ms. Doomsday, or even finding a compromise with her partner by choosing to hyphenate her name to something like Mrs. Shredder-Davis. At the end of the day, it’s a personal decision.” Annihilator Kelman acknowledged the practice may cause difficulties if a couple chooses to have children, but observed that kids almost always prefer to go by whichever family name kicks the most ass."

Very cool spider fight. In my first view, I thought that the first two spiders were *both* trying to wrap each other in web, but, looking closely, the big spider controlled that fight the entire time :p

..
This Imgur post has generated a lot of comments from stupid people:
(car force-merges across 2 lanes of traffic and is pulled over by unmarked police car)
http://imgur.com/gallery/U9cy1YP
For the record...
This is an unsafe lane change violation or a multiple lane change violation. Autos occupying a traffic lane have right-of-way and merging cars must wait until it is safe to merge (such as when the occupant of the lane yields control). It is also illegal to merge across multiple lanes at once. Typically, drivers must merge safely into the first lane, stop signalling and pause in that lane, re-signal to show intent to enter the next lane, then wait until safe to merge (e.g., safe when lane control is yielded). Stupid comments come from peeps who think that it's courteous to let someone merge across multiple lanes (these people insult the officer for "blocking" the lane change); it might be "courteous" to let someone force him or herself into your lane, but in this case that forcer was committing a crime.

The "Fantastic Adventures" YouTube channel has racked up more than 250 million views with its adorable cast of seven adopted children, silly topics and charmingly low-fi visual effects.

Behind the scenes, though, the children told a different story. A welfare check last week found the home was a den of abuse in which their mother would withhold food and water for days at a time, pepper-spray them, force them to take ice baths and lock them in a barren closet, according to a statement of probable cause in Maricopa, Arizona.

"They stated they are disciplined in the manners above if they do not recall their lines or do not participate (in the videos) as they are directed to," the probable cause statement said.

"They further stated this is one of the reasons their mom took them out of school so they can keep filming their series and they mentioned they have not been in school for years."

Police on Friday arrested their mother, Machelle Hackney, 48, on two counts of molestation of a child, seven counts of child abuse, five counts of child neglect and five counts of unlawful imprisonment.

That was full video game 12-year-old "pranking" D: ...

"The "Fantastic Adventures" YouTube channel"
Sounds like the YouTube "DaddyOFive" thing again; those parents "pranked" their children in abusive ways and then got the children to say it was all for fun afterwards (i.e., abuse the kids for real, make them cry and freak out for real, then tell them to say it was fake while the kids are in a good mood). They were given 5 years probation back in 2017...

LONDON - Suspected organized criminals have been stuffing the bodies of dead rats with drugs, phones and cash and throwing them over the walls of a British prison to get contraband to inmates, the government said on Monday.

Guards at Guys Marsh prison in Dorset, southwest England, grew suspicious when they found the bodies of three rats with long stitches along their stomachs, officials said.

They discovered the animals had been disemboweled and filled with five mobile phones and chargers, three SIM cards, cigarette papers and a large amount of drugs including cannabis and a synthetic substitute as well as tobacco, they added.

I just finished a 6-part documentary on Robert Durst (called Jinx on HBO)... I went in knowing nothing about him or his alleged crimes and that worked well, so won't give any details but definitely interesting

6-part? D: ... is each one an hour? D: ... okay, maybe I could do that if it's cool :D

"it seems kinda familiar, but the camera angle doesn't seem familiar... maybe i'm remembering just a separate incident of a bad getaway driver :p"

I thought it looked familiar too, but it seemed like a new situation... Looking into it, DailyMail posted the story in December 2017 ("Moment childcare worker leaps into action and chases Amazon package thief before tackling her to the ground"), so it may have been posted here before. I thought we'd seen another one where the getaway driver flees, but the closest I've seen is one where a getaway driver helps an injured thief (Definitely posted here before http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-b-1B6tNdc ). Hmm..

In other news, that guy I was arguing with on Imgur for some reason decided to pick up the conversation after a 19-day lapse. I thought maybe he'd stopped talking 19 days ago because he realized he'd made a mistake, but.. nope:
[CC, 19 days ago]: "lol... Wait, this is great. Let's clarify *your* comprehension: *who* do you think was "playing the joker"? :D"
[TakeRoyOffTheGrid, yesterday]: "You aren't clever. You are attempting to apply an out of context comment about a segment to his entire platform."
[CC]: "Clarify your comprehension :D — I'll give you a hint: they were not talking about *Jones* playing the Joker."
[TakeRoyOffTheGrid]: "Yeah, except they are, and it was literally in your own source. I don't give a fuck about your personal delusions, I care about facts. http://www...ill-search-for-real-alex-jones "
[CC]: "LOL, yes, something was literally in my own source which you have continued to fail to read correctly :D ... here it is again with emphasis added: it "would be LIKE judging JACK NICHOLSON in a custody dispute based on [JACK'S] performance as THE JOKER IN “BATMAN.”" I.e., NOT Jones' performance as the Joker but NICHOLSON's — Nicholson played the Joker in the 1989 Batman movie. Thus, Jones' lawyer was saying that "Jones’ on-air Infowars persona" was akin to the character that NICHOLSON played in 'Batman'. If you care about facts here they are again: Jones' lawyer said, ""Jones’ on-air Infowars persona" is "a character" because "[Jones] is a performance artist."

I'm really hoping it's just a troll, but troll or not it's funny so I'm interested :D

the 6 Jinx episodes are 1 hour each at most... Durst sat for an interview for it & he's quite a character (unfortunately Jeanine Pirro also in it, but not a lot & before she went insane)

it's so compelling you may have to binge watch by the end :p

It's a little sickening how common it is. I guess it's like how people used to drive around looking for hub caps to steal..

I'm starting to dread Nine-Nine episodes that go into Rosa's relationships. It's just so forced and stupid, like, "Oh, it's so tough being bi" — wow, yeah, that's really deep or something :| . It would be better if they were just matter-of-fact about it, but it's always presented like everyone needs to stop and say that they support her just for dating whoever she wants — but really, who gives a shit who she dates?... seasons 4-6 also start bridging other lame political topics in after school special fashion, like S6E08 ("He Said, She Said") where they basically try to be an episode of Law&Order:SVU for 20 minutes and over-emphasize overly-basic women's issues or S4E16 ("Moo Moo") where Terry is racially profiled and the episode ends up preaching through an overly-writerly conversation with a straw man racist. They seem to be pulling an SNL where they have a comedy platform and have decided to use it for uninspired social commentary. It's hurting the comedy.
