"Frontier passenger allegedly touched 2 flight attendants breasts, then screamed his parents are worth $2 million, before punching a flight attendant. Frontier suspended the crew for duct taping the passenger to his seat as they landed in Miami. 22 yr old Max Berry is in custody."

he tweeted:
"This will forever be the most dehumanizing experience in my entire life. Many people laughed and ridiculed me as I was mistreated by staff of a PROFESSIONAL airline. Just to make matters worth this has gone “viral” on the internet and will never disappear. My life will never be"

"I could buy that jank ass airline if I wanted to. Fuck out my face"

"Can somebody tell what the hell is funny about being duct taped to an airplane seat? I was treated like livestock"

--------

and some other details of what happened before video:

"The 22-year old at one point spilled a drink on his shirt and retreated to the bathroom, only to emerge without his top on. A member of the crew helped Berry retrieve a clean shirt from his carry-on luggage.

After wandering about the plane for about 15 minutes, Berry was speaking with a flight attendant before he allegedly grabbed her breasts, The Miami Herald reported."

Arg. I closed my window with my response in it and totally forgot about it so I can't even use the "Recover last session" thing — I'd almost forgotten how often I used to lose text to that sort of issue in UGT (before being able to recover a closed window) :D

Anyways.. the short version was that I thought the Frontier Airlines thing was a total lose-lose for everyone. Awful kid, awful crew, awful passengers. It's like a drunken brawl on an inner city bus — everyone winds up covered in cherry vodka and spit ;D

This Viva La Dirt League video doesn't quite qualify for the lol thread ;p .. but it kind of encapsulates how work games can become painful when the dynamic changes:

Yeah.... some poor choices by that man. She was clearly crazy and evading responsibility.. Seemed like he was hamming it up for effect but didn't realize that she could kill him and that he already had enough of a claim.. not great thinking D:

This article seems to think that the daughter of the man whose car was hit came forward with details (can't tell if it's really her or just someone pretending). If true, the deets: this happened about a month ago, they found the driver (A student at a nearby college), but charges seem to be pending while their lawyer works with the local police.

This funny video from October 2020 has been making the rounds. It's sort of anti-vaccine, anti-mask, and definitely gets political, but I think it's worth posting because it's funny.. especially because people have called this person (Chris Sky) "Gymstrodamus" for his accurate COVID predictions and gym bod ;D

from teflon murderer Robert Durst cross-examination:


Asked if he would admit killing Susan Berman, if he had done so, Durst said no.

“If you’ve said you’ve taken an oath to tell the truth but you’ve also just told us that you would lie if you needed to,” Lewin asked, “can you tell me how that would not destroy your credibility?”

“Because what I’m saying is mostly the truth,” Durst said. “There are certain things I would lie about, certain very important things.”

Durst said the most important of those things now was whether he killed Berman. He denied doing so, though he admitted sending police a note directing them to her “cadaver,” which he admitted Monday he had always lied about because it made him look culpable.


Durst also acknowledged he wouldn’t admit killing his wife, Kathie Durst, if he had. And he wouldn’t admit to murdering his neighbor Morris Black in Galveston, Texas, in 2001 if he had done so.

lulz. He's being too meta about the singularity, which isn't going to fly with the peeps who don't want to.. you know.. be killed and/or replaced by that singularity ;D

On Durst.. I mean.. he was being reasonable in a 5th Amendment sense of not self-incriminating.. but his choice of words in explaining that D:

..
One of the top comments for this probably makes a better title:

the Durst trial seems to be on YouTube, i watched a tiny portion of the cross exam, his health very deteriorated (or a good faker)

apparently he objected to a question by his own lawyer on relevance grounds, so still quite the character :p you kinda want to like him even though he's clearly killing people

Awesome :D
A friend whose dad owned a local store (not a Blockbuster) had advanced copies of movies that way, so maybe you had a similar experience: the early-release VHS tapes would always have the promotional thing flashing on the screen every few minutes.. something like, "[Property of the Studio.. not for rental/sale]". That's a big part of how I saw so many movies growing up: lots of trips to their store for bad horror movies ;D

San Francisco is rolling out a pilot program that will pay high-risk individuals to not shoot anyone as gun crimes tick up in the city.

"These small investments can transform the lives of individuals, but they can also transform communities," Sheryl Davis, executive director of the Human Rights Commission, told Newsweek.

The Dream Keeper Fellowship will pay 10 individuals who are at high risk of being on either end of a shooting $300 each month to not be involved in such crimes.

Some of his videos can be pretty funny. He talks about "RNG" as the unpredictable moments in these fake interactions and basically refers to anything cliché as an "unskippable cut scene" :D

I wonder if the grate would have helped or hurt the deer's chances... probably hurt? There's more water turbulence there, and the deer seem to be going long-ways and may have fit through the grates, so this seems like a totally positive intervention :)

definitely seems like helpful for the deer... but if he had thrown his body in front of the grate and allowed the deer to kick off him to escape it may have been a bit more comfortable for the deer...

speaking of Will Forte... for some reason i never watched '30 Rock' religiously, now binge-watching, and i think one of top comedies around (& Will Forte has a minor recurring character on it)

of the many SNL people, i particularly like Chris Parnell's recurring character Dr Spaceman (not pronounced how it looks)

Fire back guy: That's why molotovs need to be prepped very carefully. He spilled too much of it on himself ;)
..And it looks like they were supposed to light the tire on fire to get a better burn, since tire fires last longer... but... not sure why they thought that burning it in the middle of the dirt would serve any purpose. Maybe he was *supposed* to get close to the fence with the tire, but they all got so scared that they all failed their individual tasks? Even the driver was ready to drive away without them..
