Flipping through Netflix crime/mystery shows, I was reminded that one of my neighbors growing up has the same full name as a famous "mysteriously vanished" person. And apart from being about 6 years older, is otherwise very similar in appearance. Even though I'd definitely never do it and it would be super unethical, I've always wondered what would happen if I just called the authorities like, "found them!" and how far it would go.

I wonder how much of the rise of this also could be some cultural divide. I do think every man should at least try to be a member of a predominantly female friend group, and Vice versa at some point, because itís very revealing the different worlds we live in.

Sorry Canada, but your tourism board's decision to use Electric Guests' 'This Head I Hold' in its ads make me not want to visit the country. I f***ing hate that band.

I am trying to setup a hide and seek competition.

But good players are hard to find.

Does anybody remember the band Fuel? I've had "Shimmer" stuck in my head all morning -- really captures that late 90's heart-song feel.

You just listed three of my top twenty favs.  Bring It On was actually what made me want to be a cheerleader in middle/high school.

2008 prelude to 24 once the Debt Ceiling crisis is signed and crisis averted

D's are set to win VA where John Warner and NM where Pete Domenici is retiring

Mark Warner no relation has a huge lead on Jim Gillmore, in NM where Pete Domenici leaving Udall is 16 pts ahead of Pearce and in CO where Allard is retiring another Udall is leading Bob Schafer

In some races the inc R is in trouble Ted Stevens is in mist of a criminal corrupted trial is having a tough challenge from Mark Begich, in NH John Sununu is down by 5 pts to Shaheen we need a new Economic Direction, Shaheen, NC Elizabeth Dole is in a tight race with Kay Hagan, in OR Gordan Smith is being challenge by Jeff Merkley and MN Al Franken is challenging Norm Coleman, Coleman pulled his negative ads due to his cratering image

In GA Ds are aiming for payback with Sax B Chambliss with negative ads on Max Cleland, now D's are pouring resources to helping Jim Martin.

The only state RS can hope for a Pickup is LA just like Justice may force Manchin to retire

All the RS lost that yr except McConnell, Collins and Sax B following the blue wall that's the 3o3 map RS need to stop thinking Trump and Desantis are gonna win

You aren't RS gonna raise taxes on people making over 450 K in CA the reason why there is reparations is the high property taxes celebrities contribute like Lebron, Shaq and Curry pays, Millionaire pays high property taxes anyways that's why they want to cheat in Fed taxes

I love animals more than I love people! It's weird but I do. I've always been more interested in protecting the environment to protect animals rather than other humans as they're innocent creatures that we affect in everyway while they have no real input into our actions.

I wanna be rich solely to benefit endangered wild animals (like the Nautilus) while not really caring about people.

Oh I know plenty of folks who don't care one bit if a human is horribly disemboweled in a movie.  But if a dog or a cat gets killed on-screen? That's just TOO far!

They're innocent sweeties we need to protect, humans meh whatever. That one movie director who killed so many kittens trying to film a stupid scene in his stupid movie is at the top of my "hate" list!

"Atmospheric River" would be the name of my cool jazz SiriusXM radio station (for all your late night drives through the West Coast rain).

Maybe, but in this case the most common theory is that it was a kidnapping and not a voluntary disappearance. No doubt it would fall apart quick, though.

As I've grown older I've grown to understand that the purpose of history isn't merely to learn from it but to realize it teaches us that people in positions of power are still people like the rest of us.  We are not inferior to them, but neither are we superior.

While I'm using this thread as a wannabe online influencer soapbox of sorts, the implication that most post-WW2 presidents are guilty of some sort of white-collar crime is interesting. (Didn't feel like this belonged in any of the existing Forum post threads either)

I just don't want to start the cycle of prosecuting former presidents for non-violent crime.   Expect every former president to be prosecuted by an ambitious blue/red state DA going forward if this sticks.

Given that most of them have (probably) committed crimes, this would be a good thing. The prosecution of white collar crime must be normalised.

Biden maybe right to give up on OH the Emerson polls just showed us great news in FL a way to win the S without OH and MT and WV whom are in tough races and Tester got hit with ethics complain, for us to win AZ, MO, AND FL AND OH, MT AND WV are 51 seats, if we get 350 we probably win MT not OH but OH is turning like IA.


This means donate to Gallego and KUNCE and then whomever the Ds nominate in FL don't waste time with OH

Mo and KS maybe bluer than IA and OH on the S and Gov not Prez side anyways, Sharice David's always gets reelection and she is running for Gov in 26
