13. You wake up from an one-night stand with Sharon that you met from Tinder. She’s classy and amazing, and said that she was going to make you breakfast. You get dressed and walk out to the dining table, and Jonah Hill is sitting there with a cup of coffee.

What do you do?

Damn, that was impressive -- a lot more detailed and true to the original than I could've imagined.

Numan still has it in that live set -- still relevant. I'd love to see him live, but he seems to like to stay in England.

melcervini As much as I dislike Cruise, his early early early work was good. "All the Right Moves," "The Color of Money," I even liked "Cocktail" for how bad it is (I still hate-watch it every time it's on cable). But every thing after "Tropic Thunder" consistently stinks. Before that, he had about a .300 batting average.

While IAB's initial article on the shooting does mention Trump and David Duke, there was no attempt to connect the two.

Also, maybe someone smarter than me can correct me, but wasn't Jared Lee Loughner's motivation completely politically motivated? He was a paranoid schizophrenic, but wasn't he also anti-government, with far right beliefs?

I only did a Wikipedia search, but this is what I found in a quick read...

The tone of Loughner's online writings and videos from immediately before the attack were described by The Guardian as "almost exclusively conservative and anti-government, with echoes of the populist campaigning of the Tea Party movement".

and...

"In the aftermath of the shooting, the Anti-Defamation League reviewed messages by Loughner, and concluded that there was a "disjointed theme that runs through Loughner's writings", which was a "distrust for and dislike of the government." It "manifested itself in various ways."

But whatever -- you find what you're looking for if you look hard enough.

Good find. I was called cuck by an IAB regular, and I thought, "Well, that's cute -- the use of the word, but it's such a militant reddit word." It's a cheap, uncreative label that revels the weakness of the person using it more than anything. 

I always thought it was what you call a guy who allows his wife to sleep with other guys, and in turn, she demeans him while she's banging other dudes. According to Ms. Fancy, it's also a term for guys who get cheated on, whether they know they're being cheated on or not. 

Whatever, like most hot button words, it's taken a new definition. I personally think it's gives the person who says it the same glee that racists get when they drop N-bombs. It's not as worse, but you get the point.

She won't spent more than a couple years after her appeal is granted.

Gerry1of1 You really think her next 20 years would be spent as a productive, well-meaning, thoughtful member of society? Let's be honest, she's a shitty person and the next 20 years in prison will do her good. If she does her full sentence (which she won't), she'll be in her late-30 -- she should have her shit sorted by then.

bliznik Yep, first thing I thought of too -- black problems need black people. 

I thought the same thing about Billy Corgan when he replaced James Iha with another male Asian guitarist (Jeff Schroder) and Darcy with another hot female bass player (Nicole Fiorentino).
