  1. FBI Director James Comey says there’s no externally-imposed deadline into Hillary Clinton’s official use of a private e-mail server.

    After her second term is up then?

    1. After her inauguration, so she can pardon herself.

    2. Either that or when she pardons herself.

      1. Dammit!

      2. Plot Twist:
        She gets locked up the day before inauguration. Solitary, no visitors. Can’t get sworn in.

        1. Somebody watched too many Brazilian soap operas.

          1. She can be locked up with Dilma.

    3. Hello.

  2. A.M. Links at 4:30? What’s up with that?

    1. It’s fuck up, that’s what’s up.

    2. Your Western-Hemisphere-centrism is not okay.

    1. damn you guys!

      1. You’re second in our hearts.

        1. Second is just first place for losers.

        2. Are you calling him a number two?

  3. StateStateFBI Director James Comey says there’s no externally-imposed deadline into Hillary Clinton’s official use of a private e-mail server.

    I hope Comey is a man of character, and that Lynch does her duty instead of playing politics.

      1. As far as Lynch is concerned playing politics is her duty.

    1. Lynch does her duty instead of playing politics

      You made a funny!

    2. I also hope Comey is.

      Wrt Lynch, just watch her.

      1. I don’t trust her because she is Obama’s pick, and we know what a colossal a****** Eric Holder was.

        As citizens, we can only hope.

        1. That’s what I meant.

        2. If we could only, as citizens, unite in our efforts.

    3. and that Lynch does her duty instead of playing politics.

      Changing her problematic last name?

        1. I don’t see how she even keeps it, being a Black Woman and all.

          1. Trigger please!

          2. The word trigger is triggering, because it makes me think of guns. Whenever someone triggers me, I am automatically triggered twice.

            And when I say “trigger” makes me think of guns, it’s the fact that I would rather be hunting and am not that is upsetting.

      1. You’re mispronouncing her name, she’s a white country music singer.

        Or should I say country Sanger.

    4. Comey has integrity.

      So he won’t get what he wants.

  4. Mr. Gay Syria

    In a brazen and defiant stand against ISIS, who have killed countless gay men by throwing them off the top of buildings in Syria, he is one of five brave men who battled to become the public face of the war-torn country’s LGBT community.
    Speaking exclusively to MailOnline from Istanbul, where he has sought sanctuary, the newly crowned Mr Gay Syria Hussein Sabat insisted he hates the terror group more than he is scared of them.
    ‘I want to show that Syrian gays are not just bodies thrown off buildings by ISIS; we have dreams and ideas and we want to live our lives.
    ‘Of course we were nervous but we we’re excited – we all wanted to be Mr Gay Syria to do something empowering,’ he said.
    The 24-year-old knows firsthand the pain and terror of Isis – his first boyfriend was beheaded by the terror group and the execution video sent to family and friends.

    This guy is awesome. And fuck the Daily Mail for making it about leather hotpants.

    1. So, Mr. Gay Turkey.

      Probably a good idea for now.

    2. Talk about balls of steel.

      1. No shit.

    3. Much respect.

  5. Investigators say the fire that led to an explosion in a fertilizer factory in Texas in 2013 was set intentionally.

    They knew something about it stank – stunk – no, stank.

    1. I bet you were up all nitrate coming up with that one.

      1. Quit your ammonia-ing.

      2. Uh oh, call Homeland Security. Someone has nitrate on their auto-complete list.

  6. Sanders sure oughta know what a disaster looks like.

  7. Comey says there’s no externally-imposed deadline into Hillary Clinton’s official use of a private e-mail server.

    Sheesh, Jim, wrap it up already. You’ll get paid even if you’re not working on *that*.

  8. Bernie Sanders says it would be a “disaster” for Democrats to nominate Clinton for president.

    HO — LEE—SHIT!

    Bernie and I actually agree on something!!

    1. If she is serious about gun control they’ll get slaughtered in two years

      1. I wonder if Bernie and I agree on how much of a disaster it would be if the Dems nominate Bernie?

        Or if the Reps nominate Trump?

        It’s disasters all the way down!

        1. I can’t think of any constitutional mechanism for saying, “Whoa! Do over!”
          I think the only way to stop one of these two idiots from winning would be to call a constitutional convention.
          Or, Obama could declare martial law.
          Or, Hillary dies from whatever is rotting her from the inside, and whatever horrible person is her veep pick becomes pres.
          Think we could talk Trump into choosing Rand for veep?

          1. Bless you for that Denver. You made me smile

          2. The third party candidates win enough electoral college votes to prevent Hillary and Trump from reaching the magic number. Then the House elects Rand Paul for president and the Senate elects the VP.

            1. Sounds good, but the House would probably get Boner out of retirement

  9. Bernie Sanders says it would be a “disaster” for Democrats to nominate Clinton for president.

    No one necessarily needs a choice of more than one scandal when there are children hungry in this country.

  10. The South Carolina officer who shot and killed Walter Scott has been indicted on federal charges in relation to the killing.

    The Sheriff-Depute of Selkirkshire? Cop on cop violence.

      1. Getting citizenship is really fast and easy, right?

        1. If you’ve got your green card, getting citizenship is easier than it was to get the green card.

          1. But there is a time period after getting the green card before you can apply.

            1. 2 years

              1. Well, actually it depends… it might be 3, after getting the conditional green card. Then there is a 2 year wait to get the unconditional 10 year greencard, and then another 1 year, I think. Or something like that. Anyway, once you’re eligible, it’s easier than getting the green card in the first place and doesn’t take as long.

                1. Five years unless you are a vet(? years) or the spouse(3 years) of a citizen.

      2. I know 2 latins that want to get their citizenship so they can vote FOR Trump. So I’m not sure what to make of it. Trump comes off as a macho guy and latins seem to like that.

        1. Weird. One latino guy said his family is all Republican, and that his Mom volunteered for Reagan’s campaign in 1984, but they’re going to stay home instead of voting for Trump.

          Almost my entire extended Indian family detests Trump. They’re a mix of conservatives and liberals, so the lefties will vote for Hillary. Don’t know what the right-leaners will do.

          1. Don’t know what the right-leaners will do.

            Vote for Trump.

          2. I know more immigrants right now than I do native born Americans, including Indians. You would be shocked how many of them say they will vote for Trump. They’re mostly Republicans anyway, so there’s that.

            1. Hindoos have a long and unfortunate experience with the Musselmen.

  11. “Investigators say the fire that led to an explosion in a fertilizer factory in Texas in 2013 was set intentionally.”

    Well, there goes the narrative that it was a corporation’s fault.

    1. It was some guy with a confederate flag sticker on his truck set the fire. Narrative saved!!

    2. The Kochporashun set it to get the insurance! DUH!

    3. I’m sure it is still the Corporation’s fault.

      1) Set Fire to blow up plant
      2) BOOM!!!
      3) ….Profit??

      1. +1 every single Captain Planet episode

    1. I like Thiel a lot, Trump not so much. But it’s still a plus for Trump in my opinion.

  12. DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

    1. Hillary wants more transparency…

      …about aliens.

      1. In preparation of her coming out party.

        As a Salt Vampire?

        1. Lizard person.

    2. How desperate do you have to be to pander to the UFO crowd?

      1. There isn’t any crowd that Hillary won’t pander to. If she knows about it, she’ll pander.

    3. Related, and the fact the he is constantly on television defending the Democratic Party should embarass them, but for some reason no one give a shit: The long, strange history of John Podesta’s space alien obsession

      Finally, Area 51 will be exposed!

  13. “A teenage girl in France livestreamed her suicide on Periscope.”

    Yeah…. I guess nobody told her that you can only do that for attention once.

    1. *narrows gaze on behalf of Switzy*

    2. More like Perishcope, am I right?

      1. You’re right!

    3. More like “deathstreamed”, right?

    4. They must not air Daffy Duck cartoons in france.

    5. Dude…

      1. I would have just let it be, except for the periscope.

    6. I’m just surprised that doesn’t happen more.

        1. It’s all so very…French. The American way involves more guns and less smoking.

    7. I guess nobody told her that you can only do that for attention once.

      The vast majority of suicide attempts by women do not succeed. It’s completely different for men. So that was your male privilege speaking.

  14. “A new Reuters poll finds Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump virtually tied, at 41 to 40”

    Cytotoxic has a sad.

    1. If Trump were to win, I think he might have some kind of a mental breakdown.

      1. I wonder if he would move to Canada.

      2. And H? What would she do?

        1. If Hillary loses the election, she will turn into a political version of Nora Desmond from Sunset Boulevard. It was the politics that got small not her.

          1. It would be interesting if she released all the goods she has on the people who’ve been barricading her all these years.

            1. Do it in a pay per view tell all interview. Collect a few more million on her way out the door.

        2. drink a TruBlood and reflect on which baby she’ll feed from tonight.

        1. If Trump wins, I will just post this in response to his posts.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1wXEEQBHeQ

    2. If Trump were to win, I think he might have some kind of a mental breakdown.

    3. He used to be not completely retarded. What happened?

      1. We were too dumb for him.

      2. I honestly think it was the push back.

        He doesn’t handle criticism well at all.

        1. Typical retarded comment I’ve come to expect from the mentally inferior commenters here /goes off to eat the pbj mom made and play Yu Gi Oh

          1. And bench the 70s. Lbs, not Kilos.

            1. Pfft. I think we’d be generous to say he could bench the bar.

          2. Is that you Warty ?

      3. The real him came out. He’s a neocon Hillary supporter on a libertarian blog. He had to crack eventually.

      4. Honestly? I think he’s just a persona, like PB or Tony. At some point, the contrariness just became more important than consistency of character (I first noticed it when he tried using “one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter” while trolling on behalf of Liberal Party).

    4. Are you kidding me? Cytotoxic, a guy who has never got anything right or ever admitted that he got it wrong? He’ll just keep on thinking he’s the smartest guy in the world. He projects more than any SJW.

    Be sure to check your thin privilege.

    1. John is posting his porn here, now.

      1. Hardly. But if it works for you, who am I to judge?

      1. Did you know there are people who weigh 600 lbs and more? Have you ever seen that show My 600 pound life? The government should immediately mandate that all businesses make their doors and seats at least 4 feet wide so that these people aren’t being discriminated against.

      2. Universal’s Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey has bedeviled many big and tall riders who discover at the last moment that their journey aboard the new attraction is indeed forbidden because they don’t fit in the “enchanted benches.”

        1) “Fattus assus!”

        2) “‘Enchanted benches’, my ass!”

        1. It is not simply fat, Some of those seats don’t fit people who are tall.

      3. Some fatty died on Superman: Ride of Steel, at Six Flags in Agawam, MA because his harness couldn’t lock correctly. I’m sure the 16 year old ride attendant dutifully pushed against his blubber to close the harness but physics won out in the end. Then the ride was closed for investigation when I actually had the opportunity to ride it! No ride for waffles! No fat apologists welcome, fuck you for dying fatty.

        When I worked at an amusement park nothing scared me more than seeing a tub of blubber approaching the station. Then I learned to get mean. Fatties stay off my rollercoasters! Go perish on your own time.

  16. This is the sex house of an ecosexual, a person who makes the land their lover, bringing a whole new meaning to “environmentally friendly” and “whore-ticulture”.

    Ecosexuals talk dirty to plants, kiss and lick the earth, bury themselves in soil and do nude dances while the environment watches on.

    Now, *those* are people who need their own bathroom.

    1. Can’t these weirdos just jerk off the Eastern European porn like normal people?

      1. Well, then they wouldn’t be “Weirdos” by definition of the word…

    2. The progressives have just found their new outrage muse.

    3. Did you get to the part where it’s being funded by taxpayers?

    4. Did you get to the part where it’s being funded by taxpayers?

    5. Where do you think the term “cornhole” comes from?

    6. Officer, am I free to gambol?

    7. When I said “Fuck the World”, I meant “Fuck the World”.

  17. A new Reuters poll finds Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump virtually tied, at 41 to 40. Bernie Sanders says it would be a “disaster” for Democrats to nominate Clinton for president.

    RCP average, Hilldawg is up by about 6 points now. Which is very bad news for her, considering she was up double digits just a couple weeks ago and up around 40 on all GOP candidates at one time. She’s toast. I for one do not welcome our new Donald overlord.

  18. Fentanyl: The new heroin, but deadlier

    Sacramento, California (CNN)America’s addiction to opioid-based painkillers and heroin just got exponentially more dangerous. The most potent painkiller on the market, prescribed by doctors for cancer treatment, is being made illicitly and sold on the streets, delivering a super high and, far too often, death.

    The drug, fentanyl, has been around since the 1960s. Its potency works miracles, soothing extreme pain in cancer patients who are usually prescribed patches or lozenges.

    But an illicit version of the drug is flooding into communities across America, and casual users are finding out that their fentanyl pills and powder are delivering a powerful high that is easy to overdose on. It can even kill.

    The Drug Enforcement Administration and the Centers for Disease Control say we have another national health crisis on our hands. These are just a handful of the people trying to stop it from taking more lives.

    1. Its flooding the communities. Its a flood I tell you.

    2. “America’s addiction to opioid-based painkillers and heroin just got exponentially more dangerous”

      Exponentially more dangerous.

      Exponentially.

      “”He came and told me it was an overdose. I’m like, ‘An overdose of what?’ It wasn’t an overdose. This is murder,” Butler said. “I taught my kids two things: God, and don’t do drugs.””

      I understand you’re a grieving mother but I don’t think this quite qualifies as murder. This is how the War on Drugs became so fucked up – people equate willingly taking a substance that kills you to homicide.

    3. The Drug Enforcement Administration and the Centers for Disease Control are “just a handful of people”?

    4. And their solution is going to be to make it impossible for actual pain patients to get it. For the childrenz, right?

    5. Fentanyl can suck my balls. I’m going the sufentanil route when I decide to off myself.

      1. That’s the classy route.

        Remember: somebody HAS to find your body eventually. Always keep that in mind, because it WILL impact that person.

        Or, in the case of the bitch who threw herself under the train, it will impact hundreds of people.

        1. I’m going to Jesse’s. He’ll get use of the warm body and my death will make the news.

          1. The question is:
            How long can he keep it warm?

            1. All I know is don’t use a warm water bath. Unless you like em prunie.

    6. I just saw like 3 zombie children walking down the street covered in fentanyl patches. Fentanyl pushers are on our playgrounds. Did you know fentanyl users turn into giant lizards and eat people’s faces off?

      1. Seriously, I give fentanyl like it is water. Nobody says ” oh my god, this is great what is it?” Everybody likes versed and diprivan much better. Where is my scare news about Diprivan? Do we have to kill Michael Jackson again?

    7. It’s only more dangerous if you don’t know what you are getting or can’t accurately measure a dose. And the only reason it’s causing these problems is prohibition.

  19. Obesity May Not Take Years Off Your Life: Study

    HealthDay ReporterTUESDAY, May 10, 2016 (HealthDay News) — Obesity may not cut your life short after all, a new study suggests.

    Danish researchers report that the risk that an obese man or woman will die prematurely has dropped dramatically over the last 40 years.

    How dramatically? According to their analysis, the 30 percent greater risk of dying early from any cause found back in the 1970s has virtually disappeared.

    Translation: The researchers said that the risk of dying early for any reason is now the same among obese individuals as it is among normal-weight individuals.

    Not only that, but having a body mass index (BMI) of 27, which is considered overweight, was linked to having the lowest risk of death from all causes, the study authors said.

    1. I’m going to celebrate this with ice cream.

    2. I’m gonna go right ahead and assume no one knows what the fuck they’re talking about anymore.

    3. Well, it helps when you define obesity down to include people who work out on a regular basis.

      1. Yeah, when you base it all on BMI, it really muddies things up.

        1. This^^

          Before I retired from military, my BMI was 27, but my body-fat was like 12%.

          My BMI is a little higher now.

          My body fat is a LOT higher.

    4. This data came out a few years ago. People who are moderately “overweight” live longer. When you get sick, it’s good to have a reserve. Thin people go fast when they go.

  20. Treating Pain Without Feeding Addiction at ‘Ground Zero’ for Opioids

    Since then, more than 3,000 of Community Care’s 35,000 patients have seen the anesthesiologist, Dr. Denzil Hawkinberry, for pain management, while continuing to see their primary care providers for other health problems. Dr. Chouinard said Community Care was doing a better job of keeping them well over all, while letting Dr. Hawkinberry make all the decisions about who should be on opioid painkillers ? a role that requires not only expertise, but endless vigilance.

    “I’m part F.B.I. investigator, part C.I.A. interrogator, part drill sergeant, part cheerleader,” said Dr. Hawkinberry, who is also an amateur mountain climber.

    Evidence that the musician Prince had become dependent on pain pills he took for hip problems before his recent death suggests just how hard it can be, even for people with access to the best doctors, to safely control chronic pain. Community Care is trying to do so for a disproportionately poor population, in a state that has been ground zero for opioid abuse from the very beginning of what has become a national epidemic.

    1. It sucks to be an addict. I totally understand how being an addict is better than living with horrible pain. But it would be a very good thing if they figured out a way to get rid of the pain without having to become an addict

      1. people really aren’t as ‘addicted’ as everyone is making it out to be.

        1. And even if they are, so what? If it is the only alternative to debilitating pain, what choice do you have?

          1. yeah, that too. and it’s way better than alcohol, which is what a lot of people turn to when they cannot get the drugs.

            1. alcohol will kill you before the opiods ever do.

          2. NSAIDS. Muscle relaxants. Canaboids. Heat. Cold. Physical therapy. Hypnosis.

            1. I thought for a second that was in response to the “what will Hillary do if she loses” post.

            2. Those are all fine as Level 1 mitigation strategies, but they dull pain. Opiates eliminate it, or at least get it to where you feel normal again. Am I supposed to be high and wrapped in heating pads while I deal with my clients or the courts? Yeah no.

            3. Cause ulcers, more addictive and more dangerous than opiates for mixed results, not nearly as strong, not nearly as effective, not nearly as effective, extremely expensive and with limited effectiveness, and bullshit. That cover your whole.list?

      2. They will eventually. But in the meantime, the pants shitting is just too much fun.

  21. A teenage girl in France livestreamed her suicide on Periscope.

    Was it really painless?

    Seriously I hate to joke about this kind of thing–i think suicide of the young is a tragedy. But maybe if we make fun of it enough kids’ll stop doing it. “Wait, they’re going to keep mocking me even *after* death? Crap.”

    1. I think it would be very effective to point out how selfish it is too.

      If you don’t want to live, fine. If you really mean it, I’m not going to stop you.

      But don’t throw yourself under a fucking train where hundreds of people are just trying to go about their lives. They’re gonna have to live with what they saw.

      1. Interestingly, none of the other relatives ever voiced anger or distress at the uncle’s suicide being “selfish.” In fact I was chastised for suggesting it.

        1. There’s a non selfish way to go about it.

          1. Indeed, but in this particular case that path was not chosen.

        2. There are some situations were suicide isn’t selfish. I had a great great uncle who was going to die within a month or two and had been bedridden for years. He committed suicide so he wouldn’t die over Christmas and overshadow the holiday for his sister. He was in his eighties, though. Most suicides are ridiculous and selfish.

      2. Did she have some kind of cancer, or was she just suffering from angst?

    2. People who kill themselves are selfish assholes.

      1. Most of them have spent years in misery and pain because they didn’t want to cause misery and pain for others.

        But yes, it’s totally selfish to give up after years of hopelessness and pain, because people not dealing with the same problems might have to deal with your death.

        SOOOO selfish.

        1. My wife more or less chose to die. She didn’t actually kill herself, but she wouldn’t get the operation that would have saved her. And I understand why she made her decision, I really do. But I still have a lot of anger that I’m dealing with, and a lot of it is anger at her. But, like you said, I wasn’t the one in pain.

  22. At phase 23104012 of Oracle v. Google:

    [Former Sun CEO Jonathan] Schwartz explains GNU stands for. “GNU is not Unix.”
    [Judge] Alsup: The G part stands for GNU?
    Schwartz: Yes.
    Alsup: That doesn’t many any sense

    1. Is the judge denying recurse?

    2. Really. It *should* be “GINU is not Unix.”

      1. Technically it’s GNU’s Not Unix – the recursive part is a contraction.

        1. You’d think they’d be technical at fucking *Oracle v. Google*.

      2. It’s “GNU’s Not Unix”

        1. Damn, should have refreshed

    3. Lame Ain’t an MP3 Encoder
      Jack Audio Connection Kit
      Linux Is Not Unix
      Hurd of Unix Replacing Daemons
      Curl URL Request Library
      PHP Hypertext Preprocessor
      Wine Is Not an Emulator
      Pine Is Nearly Elm

      The judge’s head would explode if he were a linux dev.

      1. I’m pretty sure your Linux one is a backronym. Might be a couple others, too.

        But recursion is one place where us geeks can really, truly fuck with the normies.

        1. I’m pretty sure your Linux one is a backronym.

          It is. PHP was originally “personal home page”, but was officially backronymed. The rest are as god made them, I think.

        2. Yes. PHP was originally Pretty Home Page, or something like that. Maybe Personal.

          Pine is not elm.

          Nearly? No.

          1. Eh, looks like we’re both wrong, actually:

            Many people believe that Pine stands for “Pine Is Not Elm”. One of its original authors, Laurence Lundblade, insists this was never the case and that it started off simply as a word and not an acronym, and that his first choice of a backronym for pine would be “Pine Is Nearly Elm”.

    4. Hey, Carl! Have you ever heard the recursive iterative punchline joke?

    5. That’s awesome.

    Get ready, America, for a summer full of long security lines at major airports, missed flight connections and millions of grumpy passengers.
    That’s the warning from authorities at the nation’s most congested and busiest airports and the Transportation Security Administration.

    Airports are starting to take matters into their own hands.
    In an unusual, strongly worded letter to the TSA, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey — which oversees the New York City area’s three major airports — has essentially threatened to fire the TSA by privatizing their passenger screening process.
    Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport — which handled more than 100 million travelers last year — sent a similar letter to the TSA threatening to privatize passenger security lines.
    That airport is partnering with Delta Air Lines and the TSA to figure out a better passenger screening procedure.

    1. This is why I got my pilot’s license.

    2. Fire the lot of them, and take away their pensions, too.

    3. Seattle is kicking it around as well. The number of travelers has really picked up in recent years and TSA hasn’t maintained nearly enough staff for their security theater.

      1. Not enough staff? Every time I go through one of the checkpoints at SeaTac there’s clearly 6-10 people just standing around doing nothing at all.

        1. clearly 6-10 people just standing around doing nothing at all.

          That’s the part of the theater that they need more people for.

          1. Yeah. Government employees have usually never had a real job, and don’t have any ingrained sense of efficiency. I imagine a TSA staffed with 40 year old’s who had worked in the private sector would be a bit more efficient.
            A bunch of transplanted-from-other-agency admin with a staff of newly hired teenagers/20 something’s is going to be… well, the TSA

  24. HOW COULD ANYTHING GO WRONG?

    The glowing lack of public, real-world Stagefright exploits didn’t stop the U.S. government from using last summer’s blockbuster Android vulnerability as an illustration of the dangers facing mobile device users.

    Under the context of Stagefright exposing up to 1 billion devices to attack, the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission yesterday said they are collaborating on an investigation into the security update practices of the leading carriers.

    The two agencies sent letters to leading device makers and carriers, including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, and Tracfone, as well as Apple, Google, Samsung, BlackBerry, HTC America, and Microsoft. The letters give the respective vendors 45 days to report on how they communicate information about vulnerabilities, develop and test security updates and deploy them to devices.

    And fuck all the nerds popping boners over this. MARKET FAILURE!!!

  25. Here’s the BIG thing from Comey’s media session today:

    FBI Director Disputes Hillary’s Claim That Email Probe Is Just A ‘Security Inquiry’

    omey said that the term “security inquiry” does not register with him and that agents are conducting an “investigation.”

    “It’s in our name. I’m not familiar with the term ‘security inquiry,'” Comey said, according to Politico’s Josh Gerstein.

    1. What, Hillary’s lying again? I can’t believe it.

    2. The notion that the FBI just “reaches out” to somebody is insane. Even when screening friends and family of prospective agents, they don’t just “reach out”.

      BEEP. “Hey, yeah, Bill? This is special agent Sims of the FBRO. We wanted to chat about an acquaintance of yours, Mr. Last Hero, you know, if you are around some time. If not, no prob. Just thought I’d reach out and see if you are interested. Call back if you get a chance, if not hakuna matata. Later.” BEEP.

      That’s not how any of this works.

  26. My Father, Woody Allen, and the Danger of Questions Unasked (Guest Column by Ronan Farrow

    This was always true as a brother who trusted her, and, even at 5 years old, was troubled by our father’s strange behavior around her: climbing into her bed in the middle of the night, forcing her to suck his thumb ? behavior that had prompted him to enter into therapy focused on his inappropriate conduct with children prior to the allegations.

    Whaaaaaaa?

    1. At what point do we finally stop caring about this trailer park saga? Yeah, your dad is a pervert. Everyone knows that. Stop trying to get undeserved attention by pointing it out.

      1. This was in response to an interview about Woody Allen that was published last week (his new movie is at Cannes!) where he was not asked about the sexual allegations.

        1. So someone did an interview for a movie and didn’t bring up a twenty year old charge that wasn’t in the news and had nothing occur recently to make it newsworthy? I would have been weirded out if they had chosen to bring it up.

      2. Well, the media hypocrisy is astonishing. I saw a Woody Allen documentary the other day and they don’t even mention the fact that he’s probably a child molester.

        1. Roman Polanski is a child molester. There is no probably to it. He drugged and ass fucked a 13 year old girl. And they still love him. More than they do Allen.

          1. THAT’S BECAUSE IT WASN’T RAPE-RAPE.

            1. True, giving quaaludes to a 13-year-old and then sodomizing her is not rape.

        2. Can’t tell if serious, but do you realize that the only accusation ever made against him was made during a nasty divorce. He’s accused of touching his seven year old daughter’s vagina once (not even ongoing abuse) during one of the few visitations he was allowed while Mia and him were breaking up because he had an affair with Mia’s adopted adult daughter (note the adult part, attraction to 18 year olds has nothing to do with attraction to pre-pubescent children). Mia purposefully did not take the case to trial, saying it would be too hard on her daughter. She did use the accusation to get a friendly judge to revoke all visitations rights for Allen.

          This case was dead in the water when it happened. Unless someone new pops up with an accusation there is really no reason to bring it up anymore.

          1. Here is the thing with that case, Farrow was never willing to take the girl to the police and put the whole thing under oath. Maybe it happened and she decided it wasn’t worth the pain of prosecuting. If that is the case, that is her right. But she has no right to then slander Allen by bringing it up forever. She should have either gone to the police or never said a word.

          2. Unless someone new pops up with an accusation there is really no reason to bring it up anymore.

            Yes, the brother of the girl he was accused of molesting should keep his mouth shut and should go to great lengths to hide his opinions.

            1. How is an interview by someone with no relation to the girl the same as the brother hiding his opinions? We know why he’s yelling, we even know why he gets published despite the lack or relevance (it’s great click bait), but there isn’t really a good reason for anyone else to care. Reporters not bringing it up are doing their job by focusing on the newsworthy material.

              1. The Hollywood Reporter published a cover story/interview about Woody Allen and his life. His son wrote a story in response. In the son’s story he includes some nasty details about Woody Allen, including the bit about having his seven-year-old daughter suck his thumb after climbing in to bed with her, which is why I shared the link.

          3. There are a lot of people who were friends of the family who said he often behaved inappropriately towards the children.

            1. Friends of the family or friends of the mother? Not to put too fine a point on it, but satanic daycare panic. Once you’ve planted an idea, people can very easily reinvent their memories to match it. Even adults can highlight and twist things to make them more closely match how they want to remember.

          4. Read the Vanity Fair article.

            Woody Allen is a child molester; he’s just not very good at it.

  27. Hyperloop One: Company to Perform Propulsion Open-Air Test at Site Northeast of Las Vegas

    The company, formerly known as Hyperloop Technologies, is set for a demo of its high-speed tube-based transport system on Wednesday. The propulsion mechanism is the project’s first phase.

    1. I’m psyched for this. Once they get it built, probably with a huge subsidy, we can cut the long, arduous 4 hour drive from Las Vegas to the middle of fucking nowhere somewhere within 100 miles of LA in half the time!

      1. Yeah. Like I’ve always said, when you can get me from Sao Paulo to Tokyo in an hour, let’s talk.

        1. The world does not revolve around your strangely dichotomous taste in hookers, Hyperion.

    2. What are the chances that this thing winds up being nothing more than an amusement park ride at a Vegas Casino?

  28. A teenage girl in France livestreamed her suicide on Periscope.

    The first comment on it was “Fake”, the next was a bot promoting how much their sister makes working from home with this one cool trick, and the rest suggested this was some typical SJW shit and thumbs-downed it.

    1. So, Wednesday on the intertubes.

  29. FBI Director James Comey says there’s no externally-imposed deadline into Hillary Clinton’s official use of a private e-mail server.

    Glad to see Comey taking cues from the Existential Detective Agency. Hopefully he’ll be able to tie the whole investigation together when he goes under the blanket of truth.

  30. http://ace.mu.nu/archives/363391.php

    Hillary’s son in law’s hedge fund closes with 90% loses. His plan was to buy Greek bonds.

    1. But But But, I thought evuulll hedge fund managers were all Republikkkans.

    2. Don’t worry, with his in-laws all he has to do is keep the wife happy and he’ll get a bail out. If he’s really nice to them they might even get him a job in the white house.

    3. Really?

      Christ i’d love to see some of their marketing materials. Their thesis, especially. I bet some of it can be found online.

      1. I can’t find shit. Just form D’s which suggest that they’re exempt from registration.

    4. I wish someone would give websites like these a make over. They scream unprofessional and untrustworthy how they are currently set up.

    5. How do we know the money was actually invested?

      What if this was a Springtime for Hitler type ploy where they raised money knowing that their selected investment vehicle was going to fail?

      That way they divert 90% of the cash to themselves and leave their customers with pennies on the dollar.

    6. Keep in mind that some funds exist to create tax-write-offs. Given that this guy’s entire sales pitch is “I’m a Clinton” i doubt the people throwing money at him were worried about making a profit.

  31. A new Reuters poll finds Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump virtually tied, at 41 to 40.

    Yes, but you see Cytotoxic saw polls 2 months ago which were more important.

    1. He’s going to be inventing his own polls, which only he can see, before too long.

  32. The Rise of the Costanza Defense

    A farcical energy deal has given rise to a new takeover tactic. Call it the George Costanza defense. Like the character from the “Seinfeld” sitcom, Energy Transfer Equity wants to redefine the terms of a soured relationship: its $21 billion takeover of rival pipeline operator the Williams Companies. Energy Transfer, based in Dallas, aims to pay less cash and seems intent on forcing the issue by making itself as unattractive as possible. The stakes are no laughing matter, though.

    Unfortunately for Mr. Allison, apparently Costanza defense is already taken: The ‘George Costanza Defense’ to Stealing Trade Secrets

    She apparently did not know that it was improper to plant hidden recording devices in meeting rooms and leave them there to record meetings she did not attend.

    I call this the “George Costanza defense” to trade-secret theft. If you are a Seinfeld fan, you might recall the episode when George was caught having sex with a cleaning woman on his desk. When confronted by his boss, he replied, “Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing is frowned upon.”

      1. It’s about nothing.

    1. They are ensconced in velvet?

    2. Vandelay!!

      1. And you want to be my latex salesman…

  33. Aetna looking to expand ACA marketplace offerings amid strong growth in sign-ups.

    http://www.wsj.com/articles/ae…..1462994266

    DEATH SPIRAL! BLOOP! DERP!

    1. didn’t UHC drop out? And didn’t BCBS report record losses again?

      Aetna is trying to take the poisoned bait those two left behind. I’ll make you another bet: Aetna posts losses on those accounts in two years.

      1. UHC is out. Anthem BCBS is growing the ACA business:

        The No. 2 U.S. health insurer said it had 975,000 exchange enrollees at the end of the first quarter, up by around 184,000 since the end of the year. The increase drew sharp questions from analysts after UnitedHealth Group Inc.’s recent announcement that it would withdraw from all but a handful of the exchanges after steepening losses.

        http://www.wsj.com/articles/an…..1461754635

        1. so yes and yes.

          thanks.

          1. Yes and no.

            Anthem has said it roughly broke even in 2015 on individual plans?putting it ahead of many insurers that, like UnitedHealth, saw losses on the exchanges.

            1. roughly broke even

              Stunning success!

    2. Aetna Chief Executive Mark T. Bertolini told analysts during the earnings call that Aetna still saw its position in the ACA marketplaces as a “good investment.” But he also made pointed comments about the need for changes to the law to ensure a sustainable business.

      Yep, that’s a real endorsement right there.

      1. Losing money on every policy, but making it up in volume. Or at least they will be if they can lobby a taxpayer bailout better than the other large insurers.

    3. IOW, Shreek is an avid supporter of cronyism on a massive scale and the consumer being the ultimate loser. Don’t you have some cankles that need licked?

      1. Why do you hate marketplaces?

        1. I like marketplaces that the government are not fucking around in, dipshit.

          1. marketplaces that the government are not fucking around in

            So, marketplaces.

          2. It’s not sentient…. all you are doing is training its insectlike brain to post more of the same comments that irritate you.

    4. So…short AET?

    1. The poster of Trump with his forehead “dot”-ified is worth the price of admission alone.

      1. I think there should be a group of Hindus at Trump events worshiping him like a living deity just to confuse the fuck out of people

          1. Like that wouldn’t confuse the shit out of BOTH the KKK and @##*&! BLM

            1. Dalmia hardest hit?

              1. +1 intertoobz prize

    2. Most Indian Hindus are not too fond of Islam, to say the least. This is not too surprising.

      1. “Not Too Surprising”?

        “Cult of Personality” IS JUST AN EXPRESSION!! NOT A REAL THING

    Naomi Watts is 47. Damn.

  35. Gwyneth Paltrow: Article on Actress’s Lifestyle Website, Goop, Recommends $15,000 Sex Toy

    The article, titled “Not-So-Basic Sex Toys,” listed the 24-karat gold sex toy Lelo “Inez,” along with other recommendations in the roundup, including a whip for $535 and a feather duster for $69.

    1. She didn’t realize how much it cost – she borrowed hers from Chris Martin.

      1. That is funny.

    2. What’s the fascination with her?

      She’s soooo fucking meh.

  36. Artist organizing mass photo shoot of 100 nude women during Cleveland Republican National Convention

    http://www.cleveland.com/rnc-2…..oto_s.html

    1. Did you pay your bet?

      1. He was going to, but Hillary wouldn’t let him stop licking the cankles long enough.

    2. I seriously doubt anyone would want to see any of these volunteers fully clothed, let alone nude.

    3. “Will it feature Monica Lewinsky, Jennifer Flowers, Kathleen Willey, or Juanita Broderick?”

  38. TRUMPAPALOOZERS = “Any Pro-Trump-Concert Would Be Full of Shitty Acts Like Kid Rock and Wayne Newton

    shorter = “cool kids vote Dem, because Katy Perry and… uh…. some rapper probably”

    1. Wait, Trump’s own Attorney General supports Trump?

      /Loretta Lynn joke

      1. Darn, *Obama’s* own Attorney General

        1. It’s not surprising that Loretta Lynn would support a social liberal like Trump.

          “But, if that isn’t quite enough to sell you on Loretta Lynn, Feminist Icon, did you know she wrote a hit (and censored) song about birth control? It’s true!

          “”The Pill” is considered the first major song to mention oral contraceptives, and in a 1975 interview with Playgirl (yeah, I guess she did an interview with Playgirl) Lynn says she was congratulated after the song’s success by a number rural physicians who told her that “The Pill” did a great deal to highlight the availability of birth control in isolated, rural areas.”

    2. You wouldn’t?

      http://www.thehollywoodgossip……llot-ever/

      She makes even Obama look good.

  39. The results of a Trump v. Bernie race would be similar to Bush v. Dukakis?Bernie would win a few northern states and Trump would run the rest of the table.
