Politics / Voter fraud - 2016
« on: November 03, 2016, 03:30:32 PM »
What the hell. Figured I would start a thread to collect articles.

I think I witnessed voted fraud today in Texas. Guy showed up behind me with a Texas voter registration card applied for exactly 30 days before the election but he had an Illinois Drivers license and was driving a car with Missouri plates. The poll watchers took notes.

Here is one from California

It seems that most of the serious birth defects attributed to the Zika. Irus are centered in Brazil. Now, scientists are trying to find other risk vectors.

Politics / Houston SW side shooting
« on: September 26, 2016, 05:30:43 PM »
This is really getting bizarre. The lawyer was Indian (dot) and played guitar in a 2bit rock and roll cover band.

Not sure he was shooting to kill. 9 injured. He is dead from a shootout with the cops. 

Turns out he was dressed in a Nazi uniform and they found all kinds of Nazi paraphernalia in his apartment.

None of his family and/or friends had a clue when he started getting this stuff or why he would have acted like this. I guess he was despondent over the collapse of his law firm.

To me, it sounds like aggravated suicide by cop.

Evidently the Allies had sequestered several German scientists and had hidden recording devices in their living quarters.

After the first atomic bomb was dropped, the Allies told the German scientists and then listened to monitor their reactions. This is a transcript which documents their reactions. Very interesting range of emotions and reactions.

« on: August 25, 2016, 05:17:44 PM »
Contest being held by a small community newspaper that was started in the 1800's. They had to extend the date because they didn't get 700 entrants.

Write a 400 word essay following their rules, pay $175, and if you are selected as the winner, you get the building and the business. In Vermont.

Politics / Charges dropped on last 3 Baltimore police officers
« on: July 27, 2016, 11:16:39 AM »
After failing to get a guilty verdict on any of the charges in the bench trials of the first 3 police officers, charges have been dropped against the remaining 3 that were being prosecuted. Good thing BLM is in Philly. They can drive down to Baltimore next.

Time for the Attorney General to resign. But that won't happen.

Several people are discussing starting a Classic Movie Discussion Thread.

Lots of ideas floating around, so I started this thread to see what it morphs into.

This is a really cool article about a Canadian teen that studied the location of known Mayan cities and their relationship to major constellations. He found one star in a constellation that didn't correspond to a known city. It appears that there is a hidden, lost city right where he predicted one should be. I am humbled.

I am on a quest to help Mr. Fidget restore his dignity and to help him move to Eugene, Oregon so that he can begin producing fidgets and some other artwork that he has envisioned.

Mr. Fidget is currently homeless in LA, but is doing everything within his power to get back on his feet and become a productive member of society in Eugene, Oregon.

He has faced numerous challenges, including having his to storage units impounded so he has been unable to get his fidget tools and materials, as well as some of his artwork. I know that a few of you may have been burned back 17 years ago when he didn't deliver, but I say let sleeping dogs lie.

Mr. Fidget now has access to his storage units and can begin making fidgets again. He has some business leads that may allow him to finally make ends meet and get up to Eugene, Or to open up his studio.

Mr. Fidget started a gofundme page some months back and only raised a total of $80. None of the donations were from BellGabbers.

gofundme.com/amshaz


Mr. Fidget also has a cash.me account that will get him the money quicker than the gofundme account, and they don't take a percentage. If you would rather donate there, contact Mr. Fidget and I am sure he will be willing to provide it.

I have had phone conversations with Mr. Fidget, and he has a plan. I put my money where my mouth is and made a donation to his cash.me account.

I am asking all of you to consider doing the same. $2, $5, $10 or $20 will go a long way to helping a homeless person pursue his dream of having an art studio in Eugene, Oregon. I have never seen Oregon, so if this becomes a reality, I may just have to make a road trip.

Skip a Starbucks and help a starving artist.

If you use the cash.me account, all it takes is two minutes and a debit card.  I know of at least one other BellGabber I have contacted that has made a generous donation since I started this quest.

It is not very often that we get to be part of making a dream come through. Please consider this request and follow your heart

Respectfully,
GravitySucks.

I really hate seeing Matt Forte being wasted on a team with this much suckage. I don't see them managing to win a single game after their performance so far.

Any good College quarterbacks eligible for the upcoming draft?

Radio and Podcasts / Art's Skype problems - possible approach
« on: August 13, 2015, 10:18:31 PM »
Not sure how many Skype lines Art is comfortable with monitoring, but maybe he could split up MITD into MITDEAST,MITDWEST, MITDMIDDLE, AND MITDCANADA

I thought about using MITD<state_abbrev> like MITDTX and MITDNV.

(Heather), make something like that happen.

Radio and Podcasts / Greg Carlwood - The Higherside Chats
« on: July 19, 2015, 11:30:53 AM »
Has anyone listened to the free podcasts form Greg Carlwood called The Higherside Chats (THC)?

When Greg is not too stoned, it can be pretty entertaining. Some guests are WAY better than others and you can definitely skip the Flat Earth episodes.

I just listen to the first hour which is free. I started downloading the podcasts so I would have something to listen to when C2C became unbearable.

I think Clyde Lewis was a recent guest.

It is off the wall entertainment for sure.
