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

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.

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.

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.

I still need to catch up on that situation, so I wouldn't make a Connor comment :p ... I've seen people talking about it as a phenomenon (e.g., "Why do people care?" questions), but haven't read up yet. So far just know that they were stopped by police, she seemed to be pleading for help but couldn't talk, and he was being quietly intimidating.. then he returns from the desert without her. It seems like juicy goss-goss ;) .. at the expense of a life lost, of course.. which makes it messed up goss-goss. So it's mainly messed up, but it's also mainly juicy. ;p

Holy crap! I just noticed this and wanted to point it out even though it may not matter to others: Google has finally begun de-prioritizing Wikipedia on some searches. When searching for topic names, I've started getting links to *actual* encyclopedias (e.g., encyclopedia.com) instead of Wiki. The reason that this is significant is that Wikipedia has been owned by activists on a lot of articles; they've owned the editorial process in order to spread misinformation. If Google has begun de-prioritizing Wikipedia, it either means that people have stopped trusting Wiki (thus the algorithm reflects user habits) or Google has keyed into Wikipedia's manipulation of the algorithm (i.e., because people know that Wikipedia appears first, there had been an incentive to manipulate Wiki articles to color user perceptions — this sort of algorithm abuse could mean that Google would de-prioritize them). Hopefully this trend keeps up and affects the bigger articles too...

I'm surprised they still show that one. That was popular years ago with the teen bros and frat bros since it wasn't just the clips but the uber-bro presenting them. It was basically Tosh.0.. but for the bros. lol :D

..
"Wikipedia gives what the consumer wants!"
Yeah.. It's still super useful just because those encyclopedia.com entries always have the most basic information in one or two sentences and nothing else (just like text encyclopedias) whereas with Wiki you can quickly find key information.. I use Wiki to find Walking Dead episode titles because it takes about 5 seconds from search to finding the info.

I'm hoping that the result will be that Encyclopedia.com and others will get their editors to write impartial entries in longer form (directly competing with Wiki), or Wikipedia will be forced to remove activism's influence from its process when they realize they've lost search presence. Wiki demands a "neutral point of view", but activists have managed to bypass that by crowding people out of the process and putting hard barriers in place (saying that a point has been litigated and no further debate is allowed). Wiki co-founder Larry Sanger has complained about this, but his alternate platform, Citizendium, never offered real competition, and satirical platforms like Encyclopedia Dramatica don't handle simple facts well ;p

A South Carolina elementary school student slapped a teacher from behind on Friday as part of a new TikTok challenge for the month of October, according to a local school district.

The Lancaster County School District issued a warning to parents about what it described as a TikTok challenge that encourages students to slap or hit a staff member from behind on video this month.

"Sadly, we actually had an elementary student assault a teacher by striking her in the back of the head," the district said on its safety and transportation page. "This type of behavior just like theft and destruction of property is not a prank. It’s criminal behavior."


"Any student who physically assaults a staff member will be held responsible both legally and by board policy," the district said. "Assault on a staff member is an expellable offense which means the student is removed from the school for the rest of the year."

The so-called "Slap a Teacher" challenge has prompted warnings from other school districts and law enforcement officials across the country after last month’s challenge, which are referred to as "devious licks," encouraged students to video themselves destroying property inside of schools.

there was news of a shootout in a bar in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, so of course that music from the club scene in Collateral instantly came to mind :p... really sticks w/ you... or me anyway

That's such a good movie..
Director Michael Mann announced he's doing a 1940s crime period piece, which'll be cool..

..
I try not to click too much on "PublicFreakout" videos, but this one was notable:
"Biker films himself committing numerous illegal driving offenses, gets enraged someone made a legal and completely safe left turn in front of him, follows the driver home and knocks him out"
http://www...f_committing_numerous_illegal/

..pretty psychotic behavior. The only reason that this biker could consider the truck to have pulled in front of him was that the biker was speeding... and even *with* the speeding, the truck still had plenty of clearance. The biker must have had some pent-up rage brewing to make this kind of a decision..

the spitting is asking for trouble though

i wonder if that was really his home or just pulling in to confront biker... you don't want crazy/angry people knowing where you live

if their murderer son hasn't killed himself, the harassment of his parents could help draw him out... a la torturing Han at Cloud City to attract Luke

so keep harassing!... plus they are withholding info

Maybe he went total Jason Bourne and completely disappeared with zero connections to his past life — not even his dad. We'll see him beat up a couple of agents at Waterloo station, then he'll disappear again for 9 years ;)

Nice gas-lighting prank:

Gas-lighting seems to be a good line to walk for pranks, though the losers in the comments still object to it a little ;)

the lawyer for the parents of the murderer may have slipped up in noting they knew their murderer son was grieving before he disappeared (before victim's body found)... thus indicating they did indeed ask their murderer son why he returned without the woman he left with & whose vehicle he returned in... & who lived in their home
(as they obviously would have done)

hopefully they get charged... losing their son shouldn't be considered punishment enough

That's a tough spot for parents... knowing that their son likely just killed his girlfriend and is heading out to kill himself, but then they're in the middle of a media firestorm. Oh well. Back to our main program of world governments using the pandemic to expand totalitarian powers, I guess ;)

Brooklyn Nine Nine has an 8th season out... (& seems final)

episode 1 is awful, but most of season ok, the last episode the best

Arg. I let my Hulu lapse because they didn't have anything anymore, but if Nine Nine is back... Maybe I'll pick it up for a month.
It is supposed to be the final season, yeah. I think they decided to cancel it when all the ACAB logic was picking up steam. #CavingToTheMob

Very cool! I was wondering if he did a sky-hook thing, but I was watching the sky and didn't see any distortions in the clouds from mirrors (that might have happened in the vacant square above their heads), and if he didn't do a trapdoor.. clearly they vaporized everyone. RIP, random people :'(

I hope it wasn't just a movie-set trick (especially if the entire thing were a movie set instead of actually being outside). That would be lame. Like, if the actors put on green-man suits or mirror-suits and just walked out (then edited out in post-production), that would be stupid.. Studio magic would also allow the sky-hook again: if they had a big green-screen or mirror above the box and had them sky-hooked to a helicopter or crane (they *do* all appear to be wearing harnesses for that, and their posture seems to show that they're ready to have hooks attached to their backs). It would also mean that the spectators lied, which would violate his own rules, which seems mean after him saying, "I give you my word." :p

You can see the three peeps move their feet towards the middle right before the curtain drops (a little telegraphing by the policeman and statue-man) and the platform moves from its position at 4:14, which means that they probably were all out by then (the wind moved the platform, so they weren't weighing it down anymore). It also went quickly from crisp shadows (3:56) to overcast when the curtain dropped (4:04) so they may have hidden the shadows to disguise an aerial exit, and the camera blurred a couple of times (4:05 and 4:13; post-production to hide things?).

My guess:
He's a liar ;p
- Curtain drops
- They all grab each other in the middle for a group lift
- They attach a hook to their group-harness
- They get lifted out of the top by the helicopter/crane
- They used a mirror or green screen to hide their escape route (upwards)
- The supposedly neutral observers just pretended not to see the helicopter/crane pulling them out

..Or I go back to vaporized ;D

i don't think any video editing would be allowed... & i'm pretty sure but not positive the extras aren't seeing it (even though seems impossible :p)

the vertical lift seems out primarily for requiring video edits

the foot turns surely means something though... to face each other... or somehow exit in that direction... i dunno :p

P & T make it seem like must be quite an odd method
