Crap, there are a lot of names here I've never seen. But the real question is, what will come of them with all of these allegations? Are these people going to be "banned" from Hollywood, or is it business as usual and we'll forget about all of this in a few weeks?

Not to confused two topics, but we're not even talking about the Vegas Massacre anymore -- except for yesterday's lawsuit (which has nothing to do with the shooter), we don't even talk about getting closer to solving or understanding that situation. 

There might be some blowback from these actors/producers/celebs with accusations of sexual misconduct, but with the way the news cycle moves these days, I see them all back to work -- if they've even been exiled by Hollywood -- by early next year.

I don't understand why foreign terrorists are so interested in killing Americans. If they're patient, we'll off ourselves eventually.

woodyville06 I know, it's a lazy term adopted by pretty much everyone -- I have no time for people like that. When I'm POTUS, no one who calls a rifle a gun will be allowed to own one. Anyone who complains gets a toe-kick to the nuts by me. Fancy in 2020.

holygod So what? What about the other mass shootings? The US will never end the shooting sprees, the point is to lessen them. Or is this going to be an argument over semantics, too?
fancylad wrote:
Are you really hanging your hat on semantics? You know just as well as I do what she meant: A gun is a hand-held fire arm, a rifle is a firearm with a rifle is a weapon with a long, rifled barrel. Mass murders like the Las Vegas shooter (who we haven't heard from in week and for all intents and purposes, is now a figment of everyone's imaginations) uses rifles for maximum carnage. Handguns aren't going to kill many people. 

If you told an old-school member of the military that an AK-47 was a gun, he'd slap the smirk off your face.

I can picture that guy pulling his hair out, screaming at the bus. I would've loved for someone to have a camera on him as he was going nuts. Twenty-five years seems like a short time for an arena to go up and come down though -- did it go obsolete that quickly?

Fojos Now posts about Jim Carrey that have nothing to do with social justice are political? I think this world has passed me by.

A masterpiece. I remember watching it when I was a freshman in high school and being pretty impressed with myself that I understood all of it. That's probably it's beauty -- it's complex, but made with universal themes that anyone can understand.

whosaidwhat Everything is about collecting, then selling data these days. I know of a few tech companies that do just that -- they have an app which serves as a pretty useful tool, but what the user doesn't know is that the real way these start-ups make money is when they sell data like user habits, search words, demographics, and user stats to larger third-party corporations. I'm sure in the terms and conditions of every one of these apps, there's some sort of legal jargon that states they're going to sell your info to other companies. Of course, apps are one thing, having an Alexa in your home is a way bigger concern -- and just wait until hacker nerds figure out how to break into the Alexas of the world.

megrendel I read about that, or something similar -- a lot of people have been setting up their Alexa things to see if they can catch it picking up the key words they're talking about. And in every case I've read, the same thing happened that you mentioned.
