Link List 7-27-17

In 1993 a man named William Brennan walked out of the Stardust Casino in Las Vegas with $500K in cash and chips and vanished, along with his cat. He has never been heard from since, making it one of the most successful casino robberies in history.

 

Oscar Winner Mahershala Will Star in True Detective Season 3 - I'm very excited for this.  I am anxiously awaiting to see which people are picked to be directors. This will be the determining factor of the quality.

New Study Out



CHAMPAIGN, IL—Confirming that the findings were consistent across all age, gender, racial, and socioeconomic demographics, a study published Monday in The American Journal of Psychology determined that “hangin’ in there” is the best one can ever expect to feel. “After surveying the emotional state of thousands of respondents, we have concluded that the maximum amount of happiness a human being can now experience falls within the range of ‘gettin’ by’ to ‘hangin’ in there,’” read the report in part, which went on to note that “hangin’ in there” was an extremely rare experience for the vast majority of people, and that lower-grade feelings such as “so-so” and “eh” were far more common. “Although a very small subset of subjects reported occasions of having dispositions elevated to the point of ‘can’t complain,’ this was considered to be an anomaly and not statistically significant.” The report pointed out, however, that while “hangin’ in there” represents the highest potential state of contentment one can hope to reach, there is still no known limit to how shitty one can possibly feel.

Everything Wrong With John Wick Chapter 2

I hesitate to even post this. John Wick and John Wick Chapter 2 are two of the best movies I have seen in recent memory. I guess CinemaSins says that no movie is without sin.

An Old Tradition



Barbara Walters did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan, several years before the Afghan conflict.

She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walked behind their husbands, despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime and women seemed happy to maintain the old custom.

Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, "Why do you still abide by an old custom, that you once tried so desperately to change?"

The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said, "Land mines."

True Ownership



GM has joined with John Deere in asking the government to confirm that you literally cannot own your car because of the software in its engine.

Like Deere, GM wants to stop the Copyright Office from granting an exemption to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that would allow you to jailbreak the code in your car’s engine so that you can take it to a non-GM mechanic for service, or fix it yourself. By controlling who can service your car, GM can force you to buy only official, expensive parts, protecting its bottom line.
As Consumerist quips, GM wants you to know that the car in the driveway is “literally not your father’s Oldsmobile.”

Sessions Commits Perjury

Sessions discussed Trump campaign-related matters with Russian ambassador, U.S. intelligence intercepts show

"I never had meetings with Russian operatives or Russian intermediaries about the Trump campaign." - Jeff Sessions testifying under oath

Ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s accounts of two conversations with Sessions — then a top foreign policy adviser to Republican candidate Donald Trump — were intercepted by U.S. spy agencies, which monitor the communications of senior Russian officials both in the United States and in Russia. Sessions initially failed to disclose his contacts with Kislyak and then said that the meetings were not about the Trump campaign.
One U.S. official said that Sessions — who testified that he has no recollection of the April encounter — has provided “misleading” statements that are “contradicted by other evidence.” A former official said that the intelligence indicates that Sessions and Kislyak had “substantive” discussions on matters including Trump’s positions on Russia-related issues and prospects for U.S.-Russia relations in a Trump administration.

The Guy That Really Hated His Wife's Cat

A man really hated his wife's cat.

 One day, unbeknownst to his wife, he put the cat in his car and took it to the end of the block and let it go.

When he got home he saw that the cat had beat him home.

Undeterred, he put the cat in the car and took it a few miles across the city and tossed it out the car again.

Upon returning home, he was astonished to see that the cat had beat him home again.

Determined at this point, the man took the cat and drove him across the city, over the river, through the woods, and clear across three counties before putting the cat outside and driving off.

Several hours later the man's wife was at home when the phone rang.

 She picked up and it was her husband.

"Is the cat there?" He asked.

"Yes..." she replied.

"Well put him on the phone, I'm lost"

The Very Unlucky Man

There was this very unlucky man who only had one testicle.

One day while he was traveling on a plane, the captain makes an announcement and tells that one of the engines of the plane have failed and one person must be thrown off the plane.

To pick this person, they write everyone's seat numbers on papers and put them in a bag.

Not surprisingly, the number pulled was this unlucky guy's seat.

He was like "Ahh, man. I will jump only if you know the answer of the question I will ask."

People agree and he asks this question by pointing to one of the other guys in the plane, "How many testicles I and this guy have in total?"

Everyone answers confidently,"Four, of course four."

The unlucky man laughs and pulls down his pants revealing his only testicle.

The guy he pointed also pulls down his pants and he has three testicles.
