Imgur's issue of the moment is Jon Stewart talking about a "9/11 Victim Compensation Fund" to a mostly-empty congressional chamber (lots of GOP didn't show up):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgPEiILu_V4
Sadly, his acting still isn't very good, so when he delivered his dramatic lines I couldn't help but laugh D:

I mentioned Stewart's bad acting on Imgur and got a nice bit of downvotes ;p
...it's not like I don't think that 9/11 first responders shouldn't get treatment, it's just that Stewart is fake as fuck and did that fake crying bit for years on Daily Show. You can tell he's acting because he's not good at it :p

"Pence Visits Conversion Therapist For Routine Gay-Preventative Checkup"
[Onion: News in Brief]
http://pol...r-routine-gay-preve-1835480234
" “I feel completely heterosexual right now, but I still like to visit the doctor every six months or so to just to be safe,” said Pence, noting that he didn’t enjoy receiving electric shocks on his genitals while staring at photos of naked men, but it was worth it to ensure he didn’t come down with a case of full-blown gayness later on. “Maybe I’m a hypochondriac when it comes to contracting homosexuality, but I’m a busy guy and I’d rather have a spiritual intervention early on than risk missing work to recover from being attracted to men. Plus, now that it’s June it seems like everyone is gay so I need to be extra careful. I’m so lucky my insurance covers yearly gay-prevention appointments.” At press time, Pence was preparing to be lobotomized in an effort to fully immunize himself from dangerous homosexual thoughts."

Previous thread update on that cyclist who did flips after being struck:
http://www...ns-lane-hit-run-cyclist-426148
"Sean Fagan, 29, left medical student Josh Dey with brain injuries after he hit him with his car and fled the scene on Easter Sunday (April 21) ... Fagan, of Regina Road, Islington [a London Borough], appeared at Blackfriars Crown Court on Tuesday (June 4) where he pleaded guilty to causing injury by dangerous driving and failing to stop after a road traffic accident ... He was bailed and will be sentenced on July 2."

Apparently Dey (cyclist) had to get the traffic footage himself after he was released from the hospital because the police wouldn't be able to get someone to save the footage before it was deleted... and it sounds like Fagan (driver) didn't turn himself in — i.e., maybe he was tracked down via the video evidence. I'll have to check back on July 3rd to see how sentencing went...

Costco shooting

"
Investigation has confirmed an off-duty Los Angeles Police Department Officer was shopping at Costco with his family. Without provocation, a male unknown to the officer’s family assaulted the officer while the officer was holding his young child. This attack resulted in the officer firing his weapon, striking the male and two of the male's family members. The family members are being treated at local hospitals and are in critical condition. The off duty officer was transported to a local hospital, where he was treated and released. The off duty officer’s child was not injured during this incident. The Riverside County Coroners Office has identified the deceased male as 32 year-old Kenneth French from Riverside.

The officer's gun was the only weapon involved in the incident, contrary to earlier reports. As is standard procedure in such investigations, the Corona Police Department is working closely with the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office who will be evaluating the facts and circumstances of this incident.

"Taylor Swift Inspires Teen To Come Out As Straight Woman Needing To Be At Center Of Gay Rights Narrative"
[Onion: News in Brief]
http://ent...ut-as-straight-woma-1835591597
"UPPER ARLINGTON, OH—Describing how the pop singer’s latest music video provided the encouragement she had been looking for, local teen Gabriella Bowman was reportedly inspired Monday by Taylor Swift to come out as a straight woman needing to be at the center of the gay rights narrative. “As soon as the video for the pride anthem opened with a close shot of Taylor’s face, my heart stopped and I thought, ‘That’s me,’” said Bowman, who explained how watching the artist use LGBTQ iconography to advance her career empowered the 17-year-old to arrive at an epiphany about wresting a movement out of marginalized people’s hands and into her own. “For my whole life, I’ve lived in shame and fear about the mere idea of making Pride Month about me. People always tried to tell me that I should let others speak for themselves, that they should control their own narratives. They even told me that I was ‘confused.’ And even though Taylor Swift has now shown me that it’s okay to be me, it breaks my heart that there are still so many straight people out there who haven’t yet stepped forward to make LGBTQ equality all about them.” At press time, Bowman had assembled a group of her closest gay friends and family members to inform them she was their leader now."

bad people:


Teenagers in Alaska are facing murder charges after allegedly shooting a 19-year-old and dumping her body in a river at the behest of an internet fraudster who offered money for the footage.

Cynthia “CeeCee” Hoffman’s “best friend” Denali Brehmer, 18, invited her to go hiking and allegedly lured her to her death in Anchorage on June 2 as part of the sick scheme.

Brehmer’s friend, 16-year-old Kayden McIntosh, joined Brehmer and Hoffman during the hike. McIntosh allegedly helped bind Hoffman with tape and then shot her in her head when they reached their destination, Thunderbird Falls. Afterward, they allegedly dumped Hoffman’s body into the nearby Eklutna River.

Authorities said Brehmer texted Hoffman’s family and said they were dropping her off at a park. She and McIntosh allegedly then burned Hoffman’s belongings at another location.

Authorities say 21-year-old Darin Schilmiller of New Salisbury, Indiana, convinced Brehmer to carry out and film Hoffman’s killing by offering Brehmer at least $9 million after they started talking online a few weeks earlier. He told her his name was Tyler and provided Brehmer with a fake photo, saying he lived in Kansas.

“He does not look like the young man he portrayed himself to look like, he is not a millionaire, and he lives in Indiana,” prosecutors noted in the memorandum. “This practice of assuming a fake identity to engage in online relationships is a practice commonly referred to as ‘catfishing.’”

McIntosh and three others suspects, whom authorities identified as 19-year-old Caleb Leyland and two juveniles, allegedly agreed to help Brehmer carry out the killing while believing that they’d receive a cut of the payment. It’s not clear what role these defendants had in the killing.

Authorities searched Brehmer’s cell phone and uncovered sexually explicit photos and text messages between her and Schilmiller, as well as directions from Schilmiller on how she should sexually assault a child for his viewing pleasure.

Schilmiller was arrested on child pornography charges and will be extradited to Alaska to face additional charges in Hoffman’s death, federal prosecutors said last week.

Upon his arrest, Schilmiller allegedly said he chose Hoffman as Brehmer’s victim and that they discussed murdering someone else after Hoffman but abandoned the plan. He admitted to trying to blackmail Brehmer into raping people as well, prosecutors said.

It wasn’t until after Brehmer’s arrest that she learned that “Tyler” wasn’t the person she thought he was, according to authorities.

“Once Brehmer realized she had been catfished by Schilmiller, she ultimately admitted to being solicited by Schilmiller to commit the murder and that the murder was planned,” prosecutors said.

All six defendants have been charged with first-degree murder, first-degree conspiracy to commit murder, and two counts of second-degree murder.
...
In a June 8 court appearance, Brehmer appeared to confess to wrongdoing, telling the room: “I know what I did was wrong and I know I could have probably done something different if I was able to, and I don’t want my daughter knowing that her mom grew up to be a killer because I don’t see myself as one.”

Brehmer’s half-sister, Rebekah Langdon, told the Daily News that Brehmer had a baby who was put up for adoption.

Motorbikers go a little wacky after road incident:
(posted June 17th, but picked up and selectively-edited by news today)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xknNYq-Qx3s
Lots of threats of violence from the peanut gallery...

On the one hand, I think the driver is a dick for laying on the horn when the bikers looked to have thought it was clear (and thus the bikers pulled out at the same time that the car pulled out — the car driver and the bikers were all using the same clear spot, and it looks like the bikers wouldn't have been able to see someone at the right-turn stop sign from where they were waiting), and there's some definite aggression from the driver at about 37 seconds when the driver lays on the horn again and accelerates despite the motorcycle still being pretty close (looks like a car-driver using a vehicle as a weapon to me). There was also a sort of lie in the description: the driver says that he pulled over to the right, but he's clearly in the primary lane position... but... everything else makes the bikers look bad. Right after the honk, one biker puts his feet down and backs into the car, and after the driver's aggression at 37 seconds, there's a brake check from one of the bikers. Then drunken reasoning from the bikers follows.

No winners, though. Personally, I would have seen the bikers merging and would have slowed down very quickly to make sure that they had lots of space (so no incident would have occurred at all), whereas this driver continues forward with some aggression and a "teach them a lesson" honk. I've seen that attitude too many times... And honking at a biker/cyclist is no small act, either. Horns were made to be heard by other cars, so take away the hearing protection of being in another car, and it is outright painful to be honked at like that...

maybe it's rabid

--------

An Alabama woman whose fetus died after she was shot in a fight has been charged with manslaughter, while the woman accused of shooting her has been freed.

AL.Com reports that 28-year-old Marshae Jones was indicted by the Jefferson County grand jury Wednesday. She was five months pregnant when 23-year-old Ebony Jemison shot her in the stomach during a December altercation regarding the fetus's father.

Jemison was initially charged with manslaughter, but the same grand jury declined to indict her after police said an investigation determined Jones started the fight, and Jemison ultimately fired the fatal shot in self-defense.

-------------------

a fetus killed in self defense... 'merica!

details of the fight weren't in article... so maybe it was a justified shooting... but i'll guess more of a 'i didn't want to get scratched/bruised' one that are still legal if you say the right words

Yeah, something is weird here. I know it's Alabama, so it's fucked (there should not be a manslaughter charge for a fetus in any circumstance), but within their backwards anti-abortion law, maybe she was actively provoking the shooter into a self-defense shooting specifically to abort the fetus?

There was a story a day or two ago about Kansas lawyers attempting to use the wording of these anti-abortion laws to stop clients from getting the death penalty ( http://law...argue-they-cannot-be-executed/ ). Should be fun to watch those states deal with the consequences of their logic.

"There was a story a day or two ago about Kansas lawyers attempting to use the wording of these anti-abortion laws to stop clients from getting the death penalty"

The KSSC opinion included this:
"the government “may only infringe upon the right to decide whether to continue a pregnancy if the State has a compelling interest and has narrowly tailored its actions to that interest.”"

So uh, the government has a compelling interest in narrowly tailored actions to end the lives of those specific inmates. Lawyer is dumb and should be laughed at.

Alabama:

From now until July 31, Chatom Ford will offer customers a bible, American flag and a gift certificate for a 12-gauge shotgun when they purchase any new or used vehicle.

if you're the kind of person who wants a bible, wouldn't you already have a bible? & perhaps w/ more sentimental value than from a car dealership... so what are these people doing w/ the extra bibles...

My wish list only had one game left in it: "Amnesia, The Dark Descent", but it's 90% off (so $2) :D
..I'll probably get it even though I haven't played a game on Steam since 2017 ;p

i browsed thru ones on my list that were 50%-75% off to figure out why i put them there & bought a couple

Saints Row 2 is only $2.49... I liked 3 & 4 so hopefully worth it :p.. (III is GTA style just more campy, IV is sorta GTA meets Matrix--plays a lot different as you have super powers, don't need to use cars much)

there's a large bundle of all the games I-IV & extras for just ~$6... its doing that double up sale thing that seems like a mistake (huge discounts on individual items plus huge discount on the bundle... a small discount on bundle would be more logical)

Gabe is just giving it all away ;D

..Saints Row 3 gameplay looks interesting..
..I'm wondering if I should get the Dark Souls games... never played those.
..I also don't have Dead Space, and I've heard it referenced a lot.
.."A Plague Tale: Innocence" seems interesting.

This edit isn't too funny, but it points out that someone tried and failed horribly to jump over a car:
http://imgur.com/gallery/VaH0fLq
..like.. how did he jump so *late*?
I think there was an episode of "Renegade" where Lorenzo Lamas jumped a car... he just did it skateboard style (straight up, no running start). Google isn't turning it up :/

Do you think they practiced with him to the side (out of the path of the car) to see if he could clear it and time the acceleration, or do you think they didn't prep at all and just went for it? ;D

That first part with the snow... I'd want to practice with lots and lots of padding, but once I was good, sliding down a snowy mountain on a bike seems fucking amazing.

"sliding down a snowy mountain on a bike seems fucking amazing"

Definitely! I didn't even know that snowy mountain descents on a bike were an option. :D
(I only do road cycling)
The above video showed the 1st place rider, but this video from the same event shows a rider who was farther back — it shows a little more of how it was to be in the thick of the start crashes and to get held up in traffic jams on the paths:
(time set to just before the race start)

Stick with it at least until his crash at 2:27

"CD Projekt Red Announces ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Will Have A Gender-Neutral Character Creator, However Everyone Will Be Christian"
[Onion: News, Full Article]
http://ogn...-2077-will-have-a-g-1835946085
"The creation system will have the option for gender-neutral characters, although every character will automatically be Christian.
"This is a long-overdue victory for both the non-binary community and lovers of the Lord alike!"
...
"[Quest director Mataeusz Tomaszkiewicz said] there’s not just one way to represent your gender, but there is absolutely one way to express yourself in spirituality. “Ultimately, Christ is the only true path to religious salvation, and Cyberpunk will reflect that.”"
...
"Tomaszkiewicz did tell OGN that as the game’s universe will include numerous other gender-fluid characters, there will also be some non-Protestant Christian representation within the world, such as Catholic, Muslim, and Jewish characters, which have prominent antagonistic roles attempting to drive you from the path of the Lord.
"This is certainly exciting news for gamers everywhere. We can’t wait to see how else CD Projekt Red champions inclusion and spreads the gospel of Jesus Christ!"

Oh, it said, "two paragliders," so I was waiting for a second crash — didn't realize it was a tandem jump. Looks like they broke the tail light of the SUV?

..

lulz :D
I'm not a fan of those myself. For me, most of the fun of cycling is going fast and experiencing lots of scenery.. stationary bikes are just the pedaling. Lots of people use stationary bikes for poor-weather days/seasons, but I still cycle-commute in the snow if that's how the timing happens to work ;p

Looks like Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are preparing to cash in on nostalgia while (likely) telling a story of unfulfilled dreams and mediocrity:

..kind of reminds me of the "Waiting..." sequel that shouldn't have happened. "Still Waiting" (2009) showed how Justin Long's character had regressed into something unexceptional whereas the end of "Waiting..." (2005) made it seem like he'd move on from the restaurant industry.

Not very good assassins, but if they're supposed to kill some rando 23-year-old then I think they should just be called "failed murderers" rather than the professional-sounding "assassins" :p

"Entitled Burger King Employee Wants $15 An Hour Just For Dealing With Worst Of America Every Day"

"“This kid thinks she deserves that kind of reward just for doing her stupid, easy job? Give me a break,” said a regular Burger King customer who spoke on condition of anonymity and watched with barely concealed disdain as the “privileged and entitled freeloader” worked a 10-hour shift, which included mopping excreta-coated bathrooms, suffering prolonged verbal abuse at the counter, wiping tables strewn with wadded-up dirty napkins and ketchup spills, breathing a mist of aerosolized fryer grease and stale sweat for prolonged periods while stationed at the grill, calling an ambulance for an unconscious homeless man in the parking lot, taking overstuffed bags of dripping trash to the dumpster three times an hour, and pausing on an overturned pickle bucket in the supply closet for a five-minute break. “She thinks she’s entitled to higher minimum wage just because she spends a couple hours a day cleaning kiddie vomit off the Play Place slide? Please. I don’t know what she actually makes, but I guarantee you it’s already too much.” Upon learning that Werther was entitled to a 25% discounted meal at the conclusion of every shift of six hours or more, onlookers rolled their eyes and observed that they were not given free food at their marketing director jobs."

Yeah, "official oppression" is a new one to me. After looking it up, it's apparently charged against state/government officials who know that they're doing wrong but do wrong anyways. Looks like they must have been able to prove that somehow. Comments suggested that he was turning off his body cam before the beating. If so, that'd prove that he knew he was about to do wrong...
Kind of have to wonder why he started punching. It wouldn't be justified in any case, but since he had driven the suspect, comments thought maybe the suspect was spitting on him during the drive or something like that... very thin blue line for him to think he could outright punch someone in the head in front of all those other officers...
