  1. Holy shit "Salman will likely lose one eye; the nerves in his arm were severed; and his liver was stabbed and damaged," his agent, Andrew Wylie said. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-62528689
  2. Steven Segal is being trotted out on Russian state TV as an expert on HIMARS damage, so why not?
  3. Everything I think of the Proud Boys, I think of their founder live streaming shoving a dildo up his ass. It all makes so much more sense when you do that
  4. For somebody who adores Sela as much as I do, I bet you don’t even have a restraining order from her, do you? And apologies if you do, but we would then have to compare the distances mentioned in them.
  5. And Abbott still collects that money today - that info is in his financial disclosures. He’s still raking in a lot of money from it. Somebody with that same accident today? They can get fucked as far as Abbott is concerned.
  6. Yeah, that kind of jumps out as a holy shit moment. Wonder how this meeting went
  7. Don't count him out - DeSantis did the things that Trump only talked about. DeSantis fought masks, vaccines, shutdowns, etc.
  8. Fox News could always trot this video out and say "Hey, Kilmeade is a real dumbass, sorry about that!"
  9. Not an attorney, but it seems like a really huge fuck around and find out moment for Fox News, since people tied to Fox News have already been spreading his name and address around, and he's a federal judge. Seems like it's pretty easy to prove that they are trying to fuck with him. Also, in general, really fucking dumb for Fox News to even try to associate people with Maxwell, given the photos of Trump with Ghislaine and Jeffrey.
  10. He should have announced it this morning, and should be doing everything he can to help the GOP take the House and Senate in November. Shit's pretty fucking real for him right now, and that's his only way out. Before, I was pegging it at 50/50 of whether he'd run or not, based on how much money the GOP was willing to toss his way going forward. Now I'm saying 75% or more that he runs.
  11. Don't forget who Jared's dad is and why he went to prison.
  12. Watching the elevator video, it's like he knew that if he responded in kind, there'd be cops all over his ass within minutes.
  13. You could tell Guillermo was pissed at that, like "what the fuck Derek, you're now a vampire and you're just pissing it away and still working at a convenience store?"
  14. Even though he's a Lieutenant Colonel?
  15. People will pay good money for organs that are working, even if they are from a 50 or 60 year-old. Edit: I should rephrase that: People will will pay good money for organs that they think are from a healthy 30 or 40-something, and the typical person and many doctors/surgeons can't tell the difference from a healthy 50 year-old's organs and a 40 year-old, and beggars can't really be choosers. Edit #2: If you go through the "normal" and "official" medical channels to get an organ, they might raise some flags about the age of the person or other factors. Fucking bureaucrats.
  16. These are not rational people. Russian society is fucked up. Everybody who wants some kind of negotiated truce with them, especially those who want Ukraine to concede something, needs to read what the Russian government is saying/threatening.
  17. He had wounds to the neck, and light wounds to the head, and they airlifted him to a hospital So there's a chance he will make it. I'll comfort his ex-wife Padma Lakshmi.
  18. I think it was finally openly established in the recent Do the Universe movie, but there's been references going back years. Judge recently talked to Texas Monthly about it. https://www.texasmonthly.com/arts-entertainment/mike-judge-beavis-and-butt-head-return/ "I definitely had a chip on my shoulder about the mainstream entertainment world not understanding Texas,” Mike Judge says. His voice over the phone is thoughtful and unhurried, the opposite of his cartoon alter ids Beavis and Butt-head, although there’s no mistaking Butt-head’s zonked-out baritone lurking under Judge’s own. There’s even a hint of that laugh—the needling huh-huh-huh that once drove so many parents and teachers crazy—which creeps in as the Austin writer and animator explains how he channeled his resentments into two of his most famous characters: a couple of teenage dirtbags who spend their days passing snickering judgment on pop culture from the pulpit of their couch. “You just feel like you’re not connected to show business, so why not make fun of it?” Judge says. “They’re not going to welcome you in, anyway, so just sit there and take shots at it.” .... "For one thing, he still prefers to work from Austin, where he settled sometime after Beavis and Butt-head’s fourth season. It allows him to maintain a comfortable distance from coastal media bubbles, which feeds into his distinctive point of view on so-called flyover country. And when Beavis and Butt-head return, Judge promises, their outlier perspective will be made even more specific: “There’s all kinds of Texas references,” he says. “They even say their address—which, you know, doesn’t exist. But Texas looms large in this new stuff.” Beavis and Butt-head is rarely discussed as a Texas show, but it’s always been rooted here. Judge first developed its main characters while living on the outskirts of Richardson, about fifteen miles north of Dallas, in the early nineties. He was playing bass guitar for local bands at the time, including several years with blues legend Doyle Bramhall. But he was also taking graduate school classes in mathematics and contemplating a future as an actuary or community-college teacher. Judge’s showbiz aspirations seemed about as distant as North Texas is from Hollywood. Things changed when he attended a festival in Dallas and caught an animated short that had been created by a fellow local (though Judge is a little foggy on the details). He was inspired to buy a camera and try making his own cartoons, drawing everything by hand and doing all the voices himself. " .. "Judge never meant for Beavis and Butt-head to be Texans, exactly. In the beginning, he says, he envisioned their fictional hometown of Highland as an unspecified void somewhere “between Lubbock and Clovis,” vaguely nestled inside the overlapping plains of West Texas and eastern New Mexico. But during the production of Beavis and Butt-head Do America, Judge explains, “some background artist, without me seeing it, started putting Texas plates on the cars. So then I just gave in to saying, ‘Okay, it’s Texas.’ ”" "For example, the boys twice hire the ambulance-chasing lawyer Joe Adler, a thinly veiled parody of Houston’s own Jim Adler. They torment a cowboy hat–wearing redneck named Billy Bob, and they repeatedly fail to “score” with Lolita and Tanqueray, two trailer park vixens with flat Texas twangs. Beavis and Butt-head also showed an obvious taste for Texas music, endorsing artists such as Butthole Surfers, MC 900 Ft. Jesus, Pantera, and the Reverend Horton Heat, which gave some of them their widest national exposure. " .. And Hank Hill was almost Tom Anderson's son: But Hank also had an early prototype in Beavis and Butt-head’s Tom Anderson, another beer-drinking good ol’ boy who believes in honesty, hard work, and a well-kept lawn, I tell you what—all of which Beavis and Butt-head gleefully, repeatedly trash. At one point, Judge says, he even considered having Hill be Anderson’s son, but Fox shot him down. Still, the two characters clearly share a philosophy and significance—along with an unmistakable drawl.
