It seems unbelievable because normal people can't wrap their head around the sickness that seems to pervade the industry. Check out the documentary An Open Secret if you haven't already:

Ugg. That was hard to watch and I didn't even finish it. I wonder why that didn't hit the theaters or win any documentary awards at the Oscars? Just now I saw a commercial for the Grammies or Golden Globes or whatever that is coming up and they had "jokes" about men and certain people not being invited this year. Laughing about all the allegations and investigations. Already!? Hollywood/NBC THIS is how you want to treat the on-going situation? Joking about it?

This one is hilarious also and got a lot of hilarious twitter comments:

Ha, ha, ha... kind of a nice Dr. Evil look.

Ha. She also sort of likes the Mao-style jackets also, likely due to same reason as Dr.Evil, has sympathies towards dictatorships and evil schemes. My favorite was when she decided to just roll herself up in the Persian carpet and go out for a stroll. I guess maybe after she collapsed due to health issues or passed-out on the carpet from swilling too much whiskey or wine? Just woke up and figured to wear it? She didn't forget her alleged anti-seizure specs though.

The picture of health, I tell you!  Makes 12 diet cokes a day sound good.

"Clinton looked striking monochrome leather ensemble. But what was most noticeable was the bulky post-op shoe on her right foot."

Ha, ha, ha... "striking monochrome leather ensemble."  Yeah, right.
Striking but not in a good-looking way but striking as a "wtf is that?" It looks like some kind of jacket that one could inflate or deflate depending on much support her torso/spine, like a body aircast, needs depending on whether she is sitting or being carted around by handlers or depending on how much scotch or wine she had swilled.

I maybe saw one of those Traci Lords flicks when they were in circulation

Although the laws weren't quite as stringent yet Traci fooled a lot of people at the time with more experience and financial interests to loose than me. No way did she look, or act, "like a child." Having said that I've heard a theory that it was all a financial deal and smart by her. When she declared herself underage Penthouse and all the producers/retailers needed to pull the mags and tapes (in the US, in Europe still ok because they have/had different laws on age,) and then, now famous due to the scandal, made pornos under her label (or at least one better $$ terms for her.) And then tried to cross-over to B-movies. Idk if true. If true she was smarter, as a "kid," than many of the old hats in the Hollywood porn industry.

Very wise.  I'm still trying to process Henry Kissinger swinging with Bo Derek at the "Mansion"
He was well known for loving blonds.

The site is somewhat addicting because it is so unbelievable, and horrible, if true, that Hollywood is sicker than I even imagined (and I've thought it was pretty bad.) I Everyone knows Hollywood exploits people, the casting couch, the center of the porn industry etc. Small-town girl wants to become a star and so goes to Hollywood- a story that goes tragic all the time. But so many of these stories are kids, prepubescent even, and families involved or parents who "look the other way." Very, very sick stuff.

And the sleuthing aspect of the comments is addicting. I don't know enough Hollywood to contribute but a lot of the people seem get stuff right. Sort of like certain Reddit forums used to be on missing people or unsolved crimes etc.
is supposedly from comments is this:

Now, having said that, if someone was clever and motivated one could find a tragic news article and back-write connections to other individuals etc. (To wit, almost anybody who dies has a Clinton connection. Not to say that there aren't many suspect deaths tied to them.)

Twitter is trending that Paul Ryan might not seek re-election
Politico says so also. Ryan though isn't making an official statement. Current thinking is he doesn't want to be seen as a 'lame duck' while they go for some more reforms.

Just now CNN has a whole segment on "Why is Omarosa [Manigault Newman] Still Getting A Paycheck?" and a panel of pundits. Didn't listen to it, just happen to see it on the screen with no volume. I laughed. CNN is bitching about a black woman getting a paycheck? And also the demeaning manner in which they treat Ms.Newman by, as one would do in the past slavery days;  refer to blacks by their first name. Limousine liberals might be the most funny racists because they don't recognize their condescension and racism. Like how NBC, MSNBC, etc feigns outrage at Laurer but then are caught in a "roast" laughing a "dick jokes" and sexual stories about the married man and colleague, even the women and bosses.

That seems extremely lenient. I would think one fantasy, sexual urge or behavior with a child would qualify.

I don't divulge personal information on discussion forums but I will tell you I've got a long way to go before I reach middle age as defined by the Oxford dictionary as between 45 and 65.  I have a few friends on Bellgab who can confirm that information if it's important to you. Sorry, no granny glasses or Depends here.
Definition of Pedophile
In the US, the official psychiatric designation for pedophilic disorder (according to the DSM-IV) is: "Over a period of at least six months, recurrent, intense, sexually arousing fantasies, sexual urges or behaviors involving sexual activity with a prepubescent child or children."

This is the definition agreed upon by some psychiatrists, not the legal definition which varies by jurisdiction. In France, where there is no age-of-consent post-Napolean, when they did away with religious "moral" laws, there is a current debate to have a statutory age-of-consent like most other countries. The current debate is 13, which would be considered pretty low for American countries. There was some shocking verdicts in each men weren't convicted even though the girls were 11! So the public outcry is leading to the discussion to make a law. 

The odd thing, at least here in the States, is that each State has different laws, which is good since like countries there could be social differences, but Federal laws for other thing (like say traveling over State lines, pornography, having sex overseas and still subject to US law, etc.) It is also sort of weird when government try to figure out "correct" age for things and decision making. A weird mess, where you have situations where you could have sex- but don't take a picture, serve in the military and even go to war- but can't have a beer, buy a rifle at one age- but not a handgun, get married but not legally have age of majority so not allowed to enter in other legal contracts, and so on....

Very interesting article here about the Cypriot FBME Bank with ties to money laundering, porn barons, despots, tax evasion, terrorists, cartels, Russians and how the worst-of-the-worst banks "work:"

Somehow we maybe should merge threads into a general offshore banking thread? Though separate stories there are common themes. Fonseca Lawfirm leaks (and car bombing)  Paradise Paper leaks

Technology / Re: They want to change HDTV... again.
« on: Yesterday at 02:16:27 PM »

HEVC encoding capability (h.265) will allow higher compression rates at good quality
They're basically starting a new standard instead of duct-taping together something on top of the old NTSC
Higher resolutions, etc...
"Mesh" model for broadcasting, instead of having one giant tower blasting a signal
Could allow more localized content
Five year simulcasting with current standard
Keep your antenna

You'll have to buy ANOTHER converter box (or a new TV)
Targeted ads
Do you really think they'll localize the content more?
4K content still quite expensive/unwieldy to produce
At a certain screen size/distance, 4K may not matter anyway (
Digital watermarking may cut down on piracy (wink wink)
Public alert system will be able to turn on your TV (I'm quite paranoid)
"Unlike the original transition to digital television, the FCC will not enforce a mandate on the provision of ATSC 3.0 tuners on new televisions, having deemed this unnecessary. ATSC 1.0 signals will still be subject to mandatory carriage rules for television providers during the five-year simulcasting mandate; the FCC stated that voluntary carriage of 3.0 signals by television providers would be left to the marketplace. The order does require stations to provide sufficient on-air notice about transitions to ATSC 3.0 services"

I think this means that no more "free" watching HDTV over an HD antenna or the HD antenna built into your smart tv. So, basically, a way for content providers or box mfgs to get you to buy converter box antennas. And the existing channels that currently broadcast good tv shows and movies (old tv shows and movies) for free will might stop broadcasting since I'm not sure how much it would cost to upgrade to the new technology. Would it be worth the station showing The Rifleman or Quincy, for example, to spend the money to upgrade? Or would (the 2nd highlight) mean that a station could just stick with the current technology? The current situation is pretty good because you can get good programming, including most major sports, for free- with an antenna or for free on smart tv. And the HD for sports is better quality than you get through cable- and it is free.

Also, for the paranoid. How will ads be "targeted?" Does this mean they access or able to know, as they can now if you are using cable, netflix, TIVO, etc what programs you are watching? The ability to remotely control your tv is also troubling. Sure the EAS can already come on an alert you, regardless of channel watching but now they also want to be able to turn on your device? I guess this could be a good thing but there should be a way to 'opt-out.'

Every so often I like to research some claim from a caller and see if there is any merit to the conspiracy etc. "Kevin from Houston" the other night was going on about his relative "Crazy Lester" Pfister and it triggered that the name Pfister is somewhat famous. He went on though to say, in some kind of family conspiracy against him, that other relatives sold out to Dow-Monsanto for "$80 billion" and that he is trying to make a movie about him (not sure if it is someway to get back at relatives or "expose" the conspiracy or what. From what I can quickly see I don't see the $80 billion, though a part of the company was sold to DOW-Agro and he was famous for hybrid corn.

I agree that stories need to be detailed but maybe a short synopsis to spark the curiosity?  Many people don't have time for these videos especially when they run 45 minutes to an hour.
I got it. No one can be a renaissance man any more because there is too much information and constant data flow, inability for a person to have that much knowledge and time to process, pick signal from noise, etc. Which is why people increasingly specialize, which brings itself some troubling scenarios. This will, according to many, be solved by computing, AI, information sharing, etc etc. I still see trouble with that, especially as some systems evolve and others don't which lead to conflicts, we already see, and many more in the future.

Wow, this guy took the Roy Moore loss hard 

BTW his facebook profile photo when he wrote his final post. I am guessing Trump is asking "Which side it net neutrality  can I remove this photo from his page?"

If you read the articles linked, I posted it elsewhere, it is even better way before Trump and Moore. I suggest Netflix or someone get on this horse and ride because a crazy story and would fit a good narrative politically for the media. (I demand, like a Hollywood casting couch agent, 10% though for the idea. And won't even make you kneel or get on the couch Netflix producers, just cut me a check.)

I don't watch political videos that are longer than 7 or 8 minutes.  If you have a point to make, write down the point with a 3 sentence explanation.  Keep it short and concise.
I disagree with both of you here. This idea that everything needs to be a soundbite, a video, etc is ridiculous. Sure, short and concise is good. Certainly video, especially for certain audiences is good. But both limited to some arbitrary time-frame being the determinative factor is crazy. Sure that is what certain psychologists and Bernays might say or some Hollywood production company. And most music for the past decades. For their own goals, profits, and motives. But lots of subjects need to be done into detail. With footnotes, with other sourcing, with "extras," or just more plot, nuances, themes, (if we are talking entertainment.) Propaganda, marketing, advertising, preaching, in court, sure? Time proven that shorter, more bombastic, more lurid usually works. But to get at truth? Facts? Even just deeper meaning? Or better art? I don't like this idea that every communication needs to be X letters long, every song needs X minutes, every politician, speaker, preacher, or professors need X length? Every movie needs X length and CGI? Or that everything needs video and graphical art when words could suffice. Therein ends my rant.

Having gone to a conservative Christian church as a child, I learned early to dodge plenty of church-going dirty old men. There's often a thin line between holy and creepy. But the pastors I knew were generally good people doing "the Lord's work". This KY "pastor" (who called himself 'The Pope') was a Trump supporter which likely emboldened him, still it's hard to imagine how he was able to maintain his position in the church, in addition to being a state Rep, while openly racist, holding wild drinking parties, committing arson?, and leading his gun-toting choir in "Amazing Grace".  smh.
I don't see why. A relatively rural area that much of the establishment calls "fly-over country." What is interesting is how such stuff can be done in places controlled by the establishment in Hollywood, NYC, and DC that is far worse, as some of these recent allegations, and convictions, have shown. But have been done for decades but the press dare not report, much, because all a part of the club, I guess. Where the media and political establishment IS and operates and where members of same have done all this raping, sexual harassment, corruption, private islands with "lolita express" flights, sex dungeons in NYC apartments by financiers, special button on their news office desk so that doors can be locked, the casting couches- and worse allegations, etc. All the while joking about it amongst themselves at "Roasts," Hollywood celebrity award ceremonies, and what-not.

ps: I have not watched it but I recall seeing some tv show commercial on AMC about some crazy preacher. Based on this guy? Predictive programming?  ;)

Points taken.
My only point and concern is that when everything becomes a conspiracy or "fake news" it might delegitimize the actual stuff, throws chaff in the air, makes people go down rabbit holes to nowhere, and so on. The good stuff will, if anybody actually investigates, be found in documents, accounting, financial transfers, DNA and forensic evidence, etc for a lot of these people, like the Clintons (and others.) Sensationalizing EVERY tangent might take resources away, cause others to dismiss "just another conspiracy theory," etc. I suspect why a lot of reasons why all these "sexual harassment" things are being alledged and outed is to take away attention, resources, and investigation to others, and other more serious ones. And to get the public to start putting everything in one basket- as if rape is equivalent to looking at beauty contest models "like meat," or pedophilia is the same as an "off color joke or comment."

"no way [Trump] gets elected—but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Mr. Strzok wrote Ms. Page in an Aug. 15, 2016 text. He added: “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.” [editorial comment, by me, does she think Trump operates like Clintons might?]

What “policy” would that be? The “Andy” in question is Andrew McCabe, the deputy FBI director. FBI officials are allowed to have political opinions, but what kind of action were they discussing that would amount to anti-Trump “insurance”?

In another exchange that month, Ms. Page forwarded a Trump-related article and wrote: “Maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace.” He thanked her and assured: “Of course I’ll try and approach it that way.” Mr. Strzok, recall, is the man who changed the words “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” in James Comey’s July 2016 public exoneration of Hillary Clinton’s emails."

There goes another one. It looks like this "Christian conservative" pastor and house rep from KY had one too many skeletons in his closet and couldn't live with himself any longer. Hiding behind one's religion and blaming PTSD, drugs, the victim, etc, for their abhorrent behavior just doesn't work anymore.
As always Amazon news is late to the story. It is even more bizarre than they can detail. Here is a better story on his bizarre background and story (Netflix or Hollywood here is a good one for you. Human interest and pushing the political narrative.) The youtube embedded is hilarious. Right out of a Hollywood satire stereotype.
Much more interesting than the latest PBS guy, Tavis Smiley sexual allegations and firing stuff, or "urban music" mogul Simmons latest rap accusations.

As I recall the article said something like the blade of the knife came near to his heart.  I would think that an MD bent on suicide wouldn’t miss.
I'm not discounting anything, especially anyone with a Clinton connection, but suicides are not often rational and also doing to oneself by knife and after initial piercing and whatever deflection that might take place going in would be difficult to 'hit' right spot? It is not like the surgeon is operating with proper tools on someone else etc. But it is interesting, to say the least considering his "celebrity" and the Clinton connection.

Screw it. Ghost talked me into trying my hand at day trading. I sucked at that but I'm going to try trading crypto now.
Good luck. It would appear, to me- no expert-, that getting in when a market is high is an interesting decision. But there are so many coins and various things so, who knows? Are there ways to 'short' coins? Idk? The tax issues also should be addressed in more detail (capital gains when one converts back? Idk. Good luck with it! I hope you and pup become millionaire and can burn poo on a really, really grand scale. Maybe a reality show: Alaskan Coin Miners! That thread has gone dead. Post fishing pics also.

Yep Mouse Trap had a great TV commercial that made every kid want one for Christmas or their birthday!
But once you got the contraption assembled and ran it a few times, the thrill was gone...
Same with something like "Operation"

The games that had lasting appeal were ones like Monopoly and Clue.

I also remember some Milton Bradley historical games like one set in WWI "Dogfight" with realistic tiny biplanes, one side Germans and the other side English. 

Also one called "Broadside" that had really detailed little sailing ships of various types like Frigates. There were so many tiny pieces it was easy to lose some of them or break parts off though.

Norry mentioned he loved "Operation," and he introduced it haltingly (likely as he googled or wikipedia) "you remember this game, uh, you take out and a buzzer..."Operation," I think." or something to that effect.) He likely never got bored with it and played by himself.

ps: anyone recall the 3M board games like "Executive Decision" ?

What about "Diplomacy?" Kissingers favorite game:

More Democrats, but so far as I know not Jewish for once, in trouble for rape, sexual assault or sexual harassment:  PBS Travis Smiley gone for multiple allegations. More rape accusations for "urban music" mogul.

ps: I posted this in bitcoin thread. A few years ago a relative got hacked and the Russian hackers demanded an amount of bit coin to regain access to his harddrive (which he never backed up and had all family photos, tax docs, papers, etc.) So he paid the $700 or so in Bit Coin (which was a weird process to get.) Anyway entered the coin number into the hackers site per instructions and, somehow, the coin went all over the place. And he got a password and all his files were decrypted. Well after the transaction there were some 'bits' left over. I told him to check his 'wallet' the other day with all this madness and those remaining bits are now worth more than he paid in by several hundred. So he profited by getting hacked by Russians, inadvertently and got his harddrive back. Weird. He said he is probably going to hold it and see what happens, I don't know, it is pretty high and I advised maybe take some out.
