Robert Vesco, the DB Cooper of federal indictees:

He also cut a dashing figure in a cheap cologne ad sort of way



Choice nuggets from those people we need to understand

For those who engage in some Shadenfreep from time to time, collect your gems here.

This one comes from a gentleman who has a deep understanding of democracy and the rule of law:

To: patriotfury
What is coming is going to require Trump to declare a state of emergency and drop a MOAB on Congress.

This is a full blown coup attempt by hundreds of conspirators in government (elected and unelected) and the press.

These MF’s need to be rounded up and imprisoned/ executed, just like anywhere else in the world.

The cherry on top of that sundae is pondering what the esteeemed correspondent means to suggest by the phrase “just like anywhere else in the world”. Now, I am certainly aware that there are places in the world where, yes, it is conceivable that “hundreds of conspirators in government (elected and unelected) and the press“ might be summarily mass executed. Nambia, or perhaps Ubekibekibekistan - the faraway places with strange sounding names.

But this gentleman may have failed to appreciate that, generally speaking and recognizing that tastes may vary, many Americans have had a longstanding preference not to be such a place where one would not find such governance procedures unusual.

You cannot say "I told you so" later unless you post it here first.

The subject of the indictment is _________

I'm going with Michael Cohen. He's an under-appreciated scumbag, and more likely than either Flynn or Manafort to have attempted to take pre-emptive defensive countermeasures which only will dig him in deeper.

Here's a puzzler - re: the Papini kidnapping in California

This just in:

Remember that story a while back about the woman in California found handcuffed by the side of the road?

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/fbi-releases-sketches-suspects-sherri-papini-case-article-1.3588812

Sherri Papini claims women kidnapped her, despite having male DNA on her clothes when found

What she has said is that she was kidnapped by two women. The DNA tests found evidence of contact with one woman and one man.

This opens up a number of possibilities, but the police have also released the composite sketches based on her description of the two women.

The two women, according to her, looked like this:



Ummmm...... Anyone have a theory about how one of those women might have had male DNA?

Firm Behind 'Fearless Girl' Statue Underpaid Female, Black Execs, U.S. Says

Source: NPR

The State Street Corporation, a financial services company that put the "Fearless Girl" statue on Wall Street to promote the importance of women working in corporate leadership roles, will pay $5 million after an investigation found that it underpaid female and black executives.

This is a full auto weapon - and why the ATF didn't challenge bump fire stocks in the first place


The device shown in this picture is a full auto weapon:



Pulling the ring on the back will cause the action of the bolt to squeeze the trigger each time a new round is chambered.

As is chronicled here:



There are innumerable simple ways to cause any semi-automatic weapon to repeat the firing action in such a manner that successive manual trigger actions are not required.

I'm actually surprised the "Are you going to ban string" contingent did not march in the usual gun fancier parade behind the Girandoni rifle brigade this time.

Wake Me Up When September Ends

The worst part is what he said AFTER the "big water" idiocy


He then goes on to say that the territorial and local governments are unfortunately unable to handle this on their own.

You know, the way Texas and Florida did.

Apple would prefer that people die, than lose streaming revenue


One of the things you notice when you travel internationally is that in most places, people can use their smartphones to listen to FM radio.

Why?

Because there is an FM radio receiver built into the chips that smartphones - including Apple IPhones - use.

Apple deliberately disables the FM radio receiver in the US market, because listening to the radio for free does not earn them money.

The FCC can actually require Apple to turn on the FM radio, but the FCC has historically decided not to do so.

What this means, on an island in which communication networks have been disabled by a hurricane, is that their phones are useless, and there is a perfectly fine radio which they already have, and which Apple has decided not to allow them to use:

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/09/28/fcc_chair_on_iphone_fm_chips/?mt=1506631910751

FCC boss Ajit Pai has publicly criticized Apple for not turning on the FM radio receivers in every iPhone – calling it a public safety issue.

"In recent years, I have repeatedly called on the wireless industry to activate the FM chips that are already installed in almost all smartphones sold in the United States," the US comms watchdog chairman said today. "And I've specifically pointed out the public safety benefits of doing so."

...

"When wireless networks go down during a natural disaster, smartphones with activated FM chips can allow Americans to get vital access to life-saving information," Pai noted. "I applaud those companies that have done the right thing by activating the FM chips in their phones."

He then specifically identifies Apple for criticism: "Apple is the one major phone manufacturer that has resisted doing so. But I hope the company will reconsider its position, given the devastation wrought by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria."
