Twitter rumors fly that Turkey's Islamist tyrant Erdogan is dead
Just rumors. Wonderful, wonderful rumors. Here's a long distance dedication from Dope called Die, M***erf****er, Die!
The American "news" media, not Russian Bots and not Trump, is responsible for sowing divisions and hatred in America, according to left-leaning centrist Tim Pool
I mention this because a mere 15 years ago, only ideologically engaged conservatives hated the media. Now everyone does.
Normies -- more or less apolitical, only-vote-in-presidential-elections normies -- now routinely roll their eyes at mention of the media. That's big.
Is Neil deGrasse Tyson really this dumb? [CBD]
The Inventor Who Fought To Get Black Box Flight Recorders Into Every Plane, and of all the resistance he encountered along the way. [dri]
Mark Dice dubs Little Brian Stelter on the White House social media summit
Little Brian Stelter's ratings have fallen 42%. I'm afraid for Mark Dice -- what's he gonna do when Tater gets shitcanned? Dice needs to start promoting Reliable Sources.
David Steinberg: The Washington Examiner stole the Omar story we had broken, without crediting us, and when I complained, they said we should just be happy that someone gave the story some coverage
Now former Babe.net writer Tiana Lowe says she merely salvaged the story from the "alt-right hacks" who had tainted it with their Nazi associations
Some take issue with this self-serving claim
It takes some cheek to imply that David Steinberg and the Powerline Guys, who are lawyers, are "alt-right hacks" who needed to have their story stolen from them -- without so much as a hat-tip! -- for the Greater Good. And now insults are piled on them to justify this.
I can't believe that an august publication like the Washington Examiner, which employs Seth Mandel, who took money too plant pro-Malaysia stories without disclosing this scheme to his readers, would countenance any kind of ethically-dubious behavior.
Report that a third tanker has been hijacked... I hear it's a Hong Kong ship. Also hearing that the British-owned ship (not the British flagged, Swedish owned ship) has been released with a "warning." So maybe they're picking on countries like Norway and Sweden that can't take the fight to them.
A friend says: "I wonder what course of action McCain would call for if he were still alive."
I'd like to think that McCain would begin an affair with his best friend's wife and break up that marriage and then divorce his cancer-ridden wife. But that's just me, I'm an incorrigible romantic!
Someone just chided me: "Don’t make jokes during the funeral. Have some taste."
Iran's hijacking British ships. Earlier they hijacked a Marshall Islands flagged ship (a US territory). But not German or French ships yet. I wonder if they're trying to split the response of the European bloc, hoping that France and Germany will continue their old support of Iran and old pattern of giving the finger to their ostensible US/UK allies.
50 years ago, Muhammed Ali wrote a letter to the parents of Mary Jo Kopechne.“Dear Mr. Kopechne, assert yourself in the interests of the good name of your daughter. Get yourself a good lawyer and sue that no good son of a bitch, Edward M. Kennedy, for everything he’s got,” [J.J. Sefton]
President of the American Vaping Association is a fan of the ONT and Misanthropic Humanitarian
Well, he's a fan of the ONT quoting him. Still -- I think that's something!
Can we start quoting Demi Rose, fellas? AIM HIGHER
Get the fainting couch for Little Benny Shapiro!
Oh wait, don't bother getting it; he's not troubled by this at all, strangely enough

Ministry of Geeky Links

Jim Treacher just lit me up with three good tidbits I gotta figure a lot of you will be interested in.

First up, a long Salon article (you have to watch an ad to read) explains the movie Donnie Darko.

Donnie Darko has always fascinated me because it seemed smart and well-made but didn't make a lick of sense. I'm usually amazingly good at figuring out plots within the first ten minutes of a movie, but I didn't figure out Donnie Darko's. In fact, I didn't figure it out ten minutes after the movie was over, or three years later. It gnawed on me that there was something going on that I just didn't get.

Well, this article explains everything that was going on in the movie. It's not just guesswork; it's based on the writer/director's commentary and interviews and such.

As it often happens, the question is more interesting than the answer. Why did that jet engine fall off the plane at the end of the movie? Because Donnie Darko used his telekinetic superpowers to rip it off the plane. Huh? No, that's not a joke. That's really what supposedly happened.

Bit of a let down. Still, I can now check "Finally figure out Donnie Darko" off the lifetime to-do list. Why is Donnie Darko such an unsettlingly authentic portrayal of schizophrenia? Because the writer/director is a freakin' lunatic, that's why.

Then he links this, which is... well, Spider-Man cartoons with all the characters saying inappropriate things. Mostly involving homosexuality and unlikely sexual acts.

Keep refreshing on the link; there's 20 strips.

And then, the "Batman Begins" website, including a teaser trailer. Okay, first they seem to be going overboard on the moody-whispering/"dark" crap, but the punchline, if you will, to Batman's solliliquy gives me some hope. And moody-whispering/"dark" crap is infinitely preferable to absurdly-campy Burton/Schulmacher abortions. Howard Stern called the last entry -- the one with Mr. Freeze -- "the gay Ice Capades." Spot on on that one.
