The Munder Difflin Podcast

(Cold Open)
Jim is sitting on Pam’s desk. They’re talking loud so Dwight can hear them.
Pam: “Did you hear that noise last night? It sounded like it came from the abandoned factory down the street.”
Jim: “Yeah, what was that? It sounded like a dog, but…” Jim shivers.
Pam: “Do you think it could have something to do with that girl walking around the neighborhood? You know, the one with the really short haircut that took all of our waffles.”
Dwight looks over to them, interested.
Jim: “That’s where the waffles went?”
Pam: “I just don’t feel safe at home anymore. Have you seen the drawings Cece made?”
Jim: “You mean the ones with the blue rivers that she plastered all over our walls, how could I miss them?”
We see Dwight mouthing the words, ‘Oh my god.’
Pam: “Something has to be done, Jim. Think of the children.”
Jim: “I’ll take a look after work.”
Dwight: “No!”
Jim: “Dwight, we’re having a private conversation.” Jim almost breaks, but manages to keep from laughing.
Pam: “No, Jim, hear him out. Dwight is a purple belt.”
Dwight: Sighing, “Unfortunately, karate won’t be enough to defeat a Demogorgon.”
Dwight pulls out an assortment of weapons from his desk; a hatchet, a can of hair spray, a lighter, a mace, etc. He puts them in his briefcase and storms out.
(Talking Head – Jim and Pam)
Jim: “We weren’t sure what we would do with all of our extra Halloween decorations last year—then it hit us.”
Pam: “Jim spent all night putting them up in the abandoned factory.” She smiles at Jim, then frowns. “You don’t think he’ll burn the place down, do you?”
Jim’s looks at the camera and shakes his head.
Jim: “I don’t…" He begins fidgeting with his hands. "Think so.”
(Inside the conference room Holly and Michael are sitting next to each other, both leaning over a piece of recording equipment.)
Michael: “How is everyone in podcast land? This is Michael Scott, and sitting next to me is the very funny, very talented, and —you’ll have to take my word for it— very smoking, Holly Flax. Holly, say hi to everyone in podcast land.”
Holly gives Michael an excited smile.
Holly: Affecting an old-timey radio voice, she says, “Hello to all of yous in podcast land. Say, what’s the weather like this time of year?”
(Talking Head – Holly)
Holly: “I think Michael really believes there’s a county called Podcast land.” She tilts her head to the side. “He recently asked me if I thought it would be fun to visit there.” Her smile falters slightly. “Sometimes I can’t tell if he’s pulling my leg or not.”
(Back to Conference Room)
Michael: “So, this is the first Munder Difflin Paper Podcast. Not to be confused with a certain”—cough—“paper company.”
(Talking Head – Michael, behind his desk in his office)
Michael: “Yeah, we had to change the name after someone in corporate heard our discussion of the whole Bill Cosby affair. It… was not well received.” Michael crosses his arms. “Not the discussion so much, but rather, our dramatic re-interpretation.” Michael frowns. “And you know what? Holly did an excellent Bill Cosby impersonation. Very tastefully done.”
(Back to Conference Room)
Michael: “What’s our first segment, Holly?”
Holly: “I thought we could start with relationship advice.”
Michael: “Yes! Let’s bring in our relationship experts.” Michael leans over and dials an extension on the conference room phone.
Jim’s Voice: “Hello?”
Michael: “Jim, grab the Pamster. Get her out of her wheel, and get her in here. One order of P.B. and J., please.”
Jim’s Voice: Sigh
Michael: “On the double.”
Jim and Pam walk in. Pam is visibly pregnant.
Holly: “Looks like we’ve got three guests for the price of two.”
Pam smiles and rubs her belly.
Pam: “I guess so.” Still smiling she adds, “He might be a little hard to hear.” Jim helps Pam into a seat then sits down next to her.
Michael: “Well, let’s get a mic up in there, and hear what the little guy has to say.”
Holly: "Michael."
Pam looks at the camera, mouthing, ‘what?’ Jim shakes his head.
Michael: Voice strained from trying not to laugh, “This is baby Halpert, and it’s so dark in here. Am I a boy or a girl, let’s find—“
Holly: “Let's go to email.”
Michael: “Huh? Oh, yeah, uh… okay." Michael checks his tablet. "Alrighty, our first email asks,” He looks over at Jim and Pam, mouth open in excitement. “Wow, this is timely, our first email asks, ‘Is it normal to stop having sex when the wife gets pregnant?” Michael looks over and asks, “Jim? Pam? Who wants to take this?”
Jim shakes his head and looks down at the table. Pam looks at the camera, her cheeks reddening.
Jim: “Hey,” Jim says as he claps his hands together, “How about we do another one.”
Michael presses a button on a soundboard. A pre-recorded voice comes from the speakers— it’s Michael’s voice.
Pre-Recorded Michael: “That’s what she said.”
Jim: Looking confused, “The sound effect is your own voice?”
Michael: “I...” Michael looks to Holly then the Camera then back to Jim, “They’re all of me.”
Jim looks at the camera.
Michael: “All right,” Michael waves his hands and continues, “Fine. We’ll do another. Ahhh, a good one! A listener wants to know what Jim’s 2005 Dundie was. Hmm…that’s not really a relationship question…”
Jim: “Well, that was the first time Pam and I kissed so…”
Pam: “Wait, what?”
Jim: “Have we never talked about this?”
Pam: “No, when did I kiss you?”
Jim: “After you won ‘whitest sneakers’, you seriously don’t remember?”
(Talking Head – Pam)
Pam: “What!? I thought our first kiss was after that Casino night we had in the warehouse.” Pam looks at the camera. “Why didn’t you guys tell me? Our first kiss and I don’t even remember it!”
(Back to Conference Room)
Michael: “Alight, exciting stuff on the Munder Difflin podcast today. Taking trips down mannerly lane.”
Holly: “Next up, Andrew Bernard with his segment, ‘Nard Talk’.”
Michael pushes a button on his soundboard.
Pre-recorded Michael: “Nard Talk!”
Andy: “Thank you Michael and Holly, it’s good to be back. This week on Nard Talk we’re going to go over the Nard’s stock picks of the month.”
(Talking Head)
Andy: “I took a semester of personal finance at Cornell, and I always listen to Planet money on the drive home, so, yeah, I’m kind of an expert on…” Andy struggles to think of the term, “Financial… comings and goings. But, no, I don't personally invest any of my money. Nard Talk is more of a 'Do as I say, not as I do' kind of thing.”
(Back to Conference Room)
Andy: “Ford Motor Company? The Nard gives that stock… a solid bark.”
Andy pushes a button on a soundboard placed in front of him. We hear Andy barking loudly through its speakers.
Camera pans to Michael who is glaring daggers at Andy.
Michael: “What did I say about bringing your own soundboard?”
Andy: “Not to.”
Michael: “And what did you bring?”
Andy pushes a button. It’s him whimpering like a dog. Andy gives Michael a sad face with his bottom lip curled down. In the background, past the blinds, we see Jim reading something on his desk. Pam is looking over at him with a sad smile.
(End Scene – We’re behind Kevin. He’s placing an order on his computer. Oscar is standing behind him, shoulders crossed.)
Oscar: “Really, you’re putting your money into that company? The debt ratio alone, Kevin…”
Kevin: “It got like three nard barks. The stock is hot.”
Oscar: “Did you even look at their 10k? The historical average? Last year’s ROI?”
Kevin: “I tried, but… too many numbers…” Kevin shrugs with his hands spread out. “It’s easier to go off of the experts.”
Oscar throws up his hands and walks away.

Hollow Da Don vs Tay Roc Bar for Bar Grading System

Because it's so debatable, I went back and watched Hollow/Roc 3 times and graded their bars (a bit like Jay Blac system, much respect to him) to determine a winner.
First off I am a huge fan of both Hollow and Roc. A bit about the system: I used a 5 point system to grade the bars. If the bar isn't mentioned below, then it was just a light basetup bar and doesn't count for any points. Here is how the grading works:
1 point: A light bar, but just enough to warrant minor credit
2 points: A decent bar. Nothing too crazy, but these can add up
3 points: A really solid bar. Not a haymaker, but still very good
4 points: A haymaker. Stands out, great crowd response, etc.
5 points: A total room shaker. Crowd goes nuts. A legendary bar that will be remembered for years to come.
NOTE: Due to stream issues, I did miss a few seconds here and there of both Hollow and Roc's rounds. So if I missed anything or if a bar's grade seems way off, please let me know. Here we go:
Roc Round 1:
• Constipation waiting to get this round out: 2
• Curry/jerk chicken: 2
• DE and AR love letter: 3 (NOTE: I missed parts of this bar, please let me know if a 3 is accurate)
• Ox tail: 3
• Arianna Grande Manchester spot blow up: 3
• Star Wars/Paul George: 1
• Will Smith: 1
• Potato/Banana: 2
• Roasting session: 2
• Dirk jumper: 1
• Bill Cosby rape case: 2
• Fly in his ear: 4
Total: 26
Hollow Round 1
• Whipping Roc: 2
• Fatigues in 2K/same energy: 3
• Mcgregoarm bar: 2
• Pay for this bag: 2
• DJ Akademiks: 1
• Keep a backup hat: 1
• Swear to god: 1
• Red light laser flashing: 3
• Archaeologist/blueprint/artifacts: 2
• House/gas/light: 2
• I wouldn't have said it: 1
• Dumb as a rock: 2
• Fart or shit: 2
• Pop rocks: 3
Total: 27
Round 1 Winner: Hollow
Round 1 Notes: Hollow just BARELY edged this to me. Hollow started strong and ended strong. Roc was pretty consistent throughout the round. Hollow seemed to have rapped longer, which enabled him to land those last few punches that stole him the round. If you have Roc taking this round, I 100% understand.
Roc Round 2:
Surf Rebuttal: 1
• What have you done for Queens?/Homeless yourself: 3
• 911: 4
• Luigi moustache: 3
• Survived a calicoe: 1
• Magic show: 1
• Hollow inside the box not empty: 4
• Buckle up: 5
• Fitted fit on: 3
• Accent/different when I'm talkin: 2
• Cap twisted/liter is flat/Norbes Chico beasley and smack: 3
Total: 30
Hollow Round 2:
• Different way rebuttal: 4
• Rocketeers: 1
• Sauté was grilling me: 1
• O'melly: 1
• Can for spittin: 1
• Planet Fitness: 1
• Andy Griffith: 1
• Debt collecto Register the 40 sex offender: 3
• Kyrie fan: 3
• Contagious get it?: 3
• Rocket launcher: 2
• Stop and go: 2
• Jaffe Joe: 2
Total: 25
Round 2 Winner: Roc
Round 2 Notes: During Roc's second round on my first watch, I must admit I thought it was over for Hollow. Roc's best round and probably my favorite single round of the battle. Roc had arguably the 3 best bars of the entire battle in this round - the 911 bar, the seatbelt bar and the empty box bar. Hollow somehow still managed to make the round close though, even considering he was pretty average during the entire first half of his round. His opening rebuttal REALLY helped to at least give him something big early. Once he landed the Kyrie line, he started to pick it up until the very end of his round. Still fell short though in a great comeback attempt.
Roc Round 3
• Queens Flip: 3
• Lebron and Jordan: 1
• Bear scheme: 1
• Arsonal and Clips Loaded in front of you: 2
• Bun B, lil Flip: 1
• DJ Screwed: 2
• Casino/poker scheme: 2
• Halitosis: 3
Total: 15
Hollow Round 3
• Picante (pick Con, tay) rebuttal: 2
• Pump Roc up finish the game rebuttal: 3
• Longer than an Escobar sentence: 3
• Helped built the bricks and stones/pick a zone/stepping stone: 3
• Milking you 2%: 2
• Remote/ get up and change: 3
• Shot the fair one: 3
• Raise him right he'll pop different: 3
• Rappin 4 Tay: 2
• Winning the battle at life/he mad: 3
• Suicide/ smack consigned him: 1
• Blood on the line: 2
Total: 30
Round 3 Winner: Hollow
Round 3 notes: The clearest round of the battle. Roc wasn't bad, but he just didn't have enough. The halitosis line could have been a 4, but Conceited already said it. Considering that, I wouldn't even hate on giving it a 1 or 2, but I settled on a 3. Hollow's "picante/pick Con, Tay, not hot enough" rebuttal was crazy to me. I wanted to give it a 3 or even a 4 since it was a rebuttal, but settled on a 2 due to low crowd reaction. Hollow just landed solid line after solid line, and they were enhanced because there was an angle behind them. The "remote/get up and change" line, the "he'll pop different" line, and the "winning at life" line will probably be remembered as people look back on this battle. Overall, a clear round for Hollow.
Overall Winner By Rounds: Hollow, rounds 1 and 3
Total Points: Hollow: 82 Roc: 71
Let me know which ones you agree/disagree with and let me know who you had winning!
EDIT: Formatting and added notes to each round

Was Donald Trump Vs Hillary Clinton Truly Biased? (Read at least some of this before commenting)

I will try to keep personal political views out of this description. If you want to see the results quickly, they will be at the very bottom.
I've seen a lot of comments stating there is a bias and isn't a bias, so I decided investigate. With this I will be judging three different factors in Hillary Clinton's rap, and Donald Trump's rap. Those factors will be positive things about self, negative things about opponent, and negative things about self (using what most people would agree upon with all three). I'll start with Clinton's rap.
The abbreviations are as follows T= Trump. C= Clinton. P= Being portrayed positively, boasting about self or. N= Being portrayed negatively or being insulted (including by self). S= Person saying it about him/herself. F= Person saying it about the other candidate. I will not judge if what they say is true or not, instead, just as if they say something that seems generally like an insult or a boast, or portrays them in a certain way.
"I've been in this game too long. I'm a public servant." Even though she is saying she is doing something too long, she is referring to politics, where the longer you are in it, generally the better. On the other hand, someone in the comments pointed out to me that 44% of Americans don't trust the political system, which, when counting the no opinion voters and those who do trust it, the 44% would be in the majority. So I will say it is a negative thing +1 CNS
"Have been since I met MLK in person." Meeting the legendary Martin Luther King Jr is an very respectable accomplishment, I would say positive. +1 CPS
"I'm a woman of the people that's for certain." Very positive thing to be. +1 CPS
"You're a man of the people who don't like turbans." Whilst she did say he is a man of the people, with what she said after, it seems sarcastic. She has polar views from Trump when it comes to Muslims, so the words after can only be an insult. And based off that insult being a quick continuation of the sentence, I will assume she said it in a sarcastic manor. +1 CNF
"I was living in the West Wing while you were professional wrestling." She refers to her living in the White House before, and took shots at Trump with his wrestling affiliation. +1 CPS, +1 CNF
"You got skin like Russian dressing, From too much Russian investing." She insults his skin color and his investments in Russia (by saying too much). +2 CNF
"You've been going bankrupt since the 90's" Hit on Trump's bankruptcies. +1 CNF
"If I was in Iran, you couldn't find me" Off the top of my head, this seems like it might be referencing her Iran deal, but that seems like kind of a stretch. The you couldn't find me part clearly is a hit against Trump, I would guess little geographical knowledge (though I'm not certain if he knows little or a lot, this is just a guess), but regardless, the way it was said was supposed to be an line against him. +1 CNF, ~1 CNS (unsure on if it wanted to reference the deal or not)
"You don't care about the job, Trump. You just think the desk is shiny." She insults him by saying he doesn't care about presidency, and that he just wants the status of being president. +1 CNF
"I said that I respect your children. But that wasn't quite right, yo" She said she doesn't respect his children. +1 CNF
"Looking like some extras from American Psycho." Insults his looks. +1 CNF
"First name is Hillary, middle name, Rodham, last name is Clinton and lyrics, I got 'em." Well, that is her name. She said "lyrics, I got 'em", but I don't feel like that would justify giving her a Clinton Positive Self point, doesn't seem strong enough.
"You fire celebrities on The Apprentice. Motherfucker, I fire bin Laden" Talks about achievements over Trump. +1 CPS
"How do I say this? You're racist." Calls him racist. +1 CNF
"Ooh, you must get so pissed that your hands are too small to stop and frisk." Says his hands are small, which he does not like. +1 CNF
"So you use your fingers to touch chicks." Referring to the Trump rape allegations. +1 CNF
"(She's only 12 years old). That's enough, shit." Related to the last insult, but different enough. +1 CNF
"(But she's married, sir). Just gotta get pushy." Talking about the 2005 controversial Donald Trump video. +1 CNF
"(That's your daughter)." Talking about Trump's quote about his daughter that was also very controversial. +1 CNF
"Well, grab her by the pussy." Same as the "Just gotta get pushy" line, so I won't count it (even though it is an insult, they need to be new ones, ERB doesn't get rewarded for using the same line over and over again).
"That's assault, brotha!" Well, that's just a fact. Not really an insult towards him, it's far too general.
"Don't tell me the victim's at fault, sucka!." Clinton likely saying he does this. +1 CNF
"You don't know shit about steaks, yucka!" Referencing his failed Trump Steaks company. +1 CNF
"But the ones on the 8th are great, muthafucka!" Referencing the 8th of November, and has very good stakes to win. +1 CPS
"Better save the date, I'm gonna rock the vote." Trump reminded Republican supporters to vote on 11/28, instead of the actual election date, 11/8. +1 CNF
"Bad bitch on the scene like Murder, She Wrote." Relates herself to Jessica Fletcher, who was seen as a very influential figure. +1 CPS
"So go ahead Donald, let me see you flow." Not really anything here.
"I brought Michelle's speech, borrow some quotes." His wife was claimed to have stolen Michelle Obama's speech. +1 CNF
With these numbers, Clinton has said 19 Negative things about Trump, 7 Positive things about herself, and possibly 1 against herself. I'll go into Trump's lyrics now.
"Let me just say I respect all females" Starting off not too bad. +1 TPS
"But your rhymes are trash. Put 'em next to your emails." 31K email controversy. +1 TNF
"Our country's in crisis. Who wants to vote for the mother of ISIS." ERB uses one of his crazy claims. +1 TNS
"That might not be exactly true. But I don't do politeness." He claims he isn't polite, which is negative. +1 TNS
"You wanna talk about misogyny. Your Bill's worse than Cosby. He left a mess on that dress." Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinski Allegations. +1 TNF
"Like you left in Benghazi" The infamous Benghazi scandal. +1 TNF
"You wanna break the glass ceiling. Hillary, I sense it. But the only crack you'll find is my ass pressed against it." The glass ceiling generally refers to an invisible barrier that many believe keeps certain groups of people, in this case women from rising up in the world. This quote implies Trump likes the idea of having one. +1 TNS
"The numbers are in and I'm right on your tail." Despite him saying he is right on her tail, this means he is behind her, which is something a candidate would never want to say. +1 TNS
"You don't have the stamina, baby, you're frail." Refers to the time Clinton got sick and fell quickly on the 9/11 memorial. +1 TNF
"This will be just like '08 when you fail." Defeated by Obama in the 2008 election. +1 TNF
"But Trump will appoint you to jail." He wants her in prison. +1 TNF
"How do I say this? You're a two." Talking about how he is know to rate women which is bad, but he also calls Clinton ugly. +1 TNF, +1 TNS
"And you almost lost the primary to a socialist Jew." Insults her almost losing the primary. +1 TNF
"What do the American people gotta yankee doodle do. To get it through your fat face that they're just not that into you?" Talks about her high unfavorable rating. +1 TNF
"They want a strong male leader, who can stand up to China" The way he says male in the sentence seems very... off. He emphasizes male too powerfully. +1 TNS
"(China, China, China)" He talks about China a lot, which he has been made fun of by other candidates for doing so. +1 TNS
"Not a crooked little wishy-washy bleeding heart vagina." Insults her strongly in this, but also calls her a bleeding heart (someone who feels sorry a lot). Many people see people with "bleeding hearts" as good, nicer people. +1 TNF, +1 TPF
"I'm gonna run these streets like I run my casinos." When it comes to his casinos, many people talk about the failures, many talk about the success. It is impossible to tell which ones ERB is trying to reference, so I'll count as both. +1 TPS, +1 TNS
"More police and less Latinos" Line claims he wants less Latinos. +1 TNS
"While you bury us in debt buying poor people socks." He uses buying poor people stuff as his argument, which is one of worst ones, if not the worst that ERB could have used. +1 TNS
"I'll create jobs tearing down mosques." Portrays him as an extremist. +1 TNS
"Then I'll use all the best rocks from the site to build a wall. Dip it in gold and make Mexico pay for it all." Likely mocking him, but I give them a bit of respect. This is a very controversial argument, so I won't go either way.
I'll make this country great again. We'll all be living large" Shouldn't really have to explain. +1 TPS
"I'll tell congress you're fired and put Charles in charge." This is more on the negative side, firing congress is a bad idea, and Charles in charge was referring to a TV show. +1 TNS
"'Cause this whole system's rigged and we all know the riggers For the last eight years, this country's been run by-" We all know what ERB was implying. This is portraying him as bad. +1 TNS
10 Negatives about Clinton, 14 Negatives about Himself, 3 Positives about Himself, 1 Positive about Clinton.

HC= Hillary Clinton, DT= Donald Trump

The Results ------- HC -------- DT

Positive Self ------- 6 ----------- 3

Negative Self ------- 2 -------- 13

Positive Foe ------- 0 ----------- 1

Negative Foe ------- 19 -------- 11

So from this chart, Hillary Clinton has said more positive things and less negative things about herself than Donald Trump. And Trump said more positive things about his opponent (just barely though) and said less negative things about his opponent. From this, Trump lost in all four categories. From these numbers, I would say that this video was made with a bias. I did not include the Lincoln part, which was heavily against Donald Trump, and yet still got Trump having the worst outcome out of the 4 choices. In short, yes, this video was biased.
EDIT 1: Lastly, any times where I edit this (usually in response to a comment), I will put an EDIT: (change that got fixed) in a comment either in reply to that person, or just in the comment section if it was no one person.
EDIT 2: When saying ERB is portraying someone in a bad certain way, I'm not saying that person isn't that way in real life. I'm just saying that ERB is trying to make someone look bad during their own lines, or making the opponent look bad by dissing them. The ladder one is very good and healthy for ERB in my opinion, whilst the first one seems like something ERB should refrain from doing.
EDIT 3: My views will likely differ from yours greatly. I gave out a total of 45 points, doubling up on points for quotes because of being unsure, and not having points being given for certain quotes I felt didn't have enough to go either way. With so much, there will be many disagreements. Just make sure you explain why you feel I should change it, and with good reasoning, I will likely change it. I have currently changed 3 of my lines from constructive criticism, and I am very willing to change more if I feel there is a strong enough reason to.

27 Ways to Treat Your Mom This Mother’s Day in CT - CT Weekender
submitted by SheCalledMePaul to Connecticut [link] [comments]

Rights, Ownership, Property, Money, etc. ++

meaning of ++
When claims of rights disagree A right is a moral construct, a sort of axiom upon which a sense of justice developed, such as Ken Schoolland has done in the previous post. There are bound to be dissenters from his idea of justice, so who is right about rights? On the R, we believe the individual is sovereign, while the state, if it is privileged to exist at all, is duty bound to provide security for the people (not itself). On the L, they believe the State is sovereign, and the individual, if he is privileged to exist at all, is duty bound to serve the State (the persons who are operatives of the State). Obviously, R and L cannot coexist in harmony.
The only JUST way to resolve moral disputes is SEGREGATION. Split the people who disagree into "camps" or "campuses" of agreement so that "birds of a feather can flock together". As campuses evolve over time, some may grow and visa versa, as long as citizens have the privilege to migrate out. I call this a privilege because the destination a migrant may choose has the right to deny entry. A migrant must have the default privilege of going wherever he/she is accepted. Anything less is involuntary confinement (prison). How is the split achieved? Issue a constitution that defines the qualities of a citizen, and forcibly eject everyone who fails the definition. This is an act of (group) self-defense, so force is justified.
Just a speculation, but if Reech and Leech were separated into their own segregated societies as just suggested, the Reech would prosper but the Leech would quickly run out of Reech people to plunder, as the Reech would have naturally migrated to where they are appreciated and allowed to keep their property. Since Leeches suck, they would starve.
We were talking about money, and about 3 basic types: Aristotle's classic commodity money, modern token money, and fiat currency. The first 2 real, the 3rd a fraud that exists because of laws and threats.
Store of Value ++ Recalling Aristotle's attribute of money, Portability, let's introduce the concept of value density to measure it, and compare, shall we? Let's compare two commodities, gold and water. Depending on circumstances, water can be far more intrinsically valuable than gold, but it is much less value dense. Our planet has oceans of it. Increased supply means diminished price. Gold is $788.86 / cm3. Water is extremely variable in price, but let's take bottled drinking water, (most likely at the top end of the price range) for example. At Sam's Club you can get 40 bottles at 16.9 oz per bottle for $3.98, and water has mass density 1 gm/cm3, which converts to $0.000207678 / cm3. Gold is 3,798,491 times more value dense than Sam's Club bottled water.
Recalling Aristotle's attribute of Durability, water is very durable, but easily spoiled with impurities (a sort of corrosion). This idea of spoiling brings us to the concept of isolation, or containment. Traditionally, money is stored with at least two tools: a vault and accounting. Both need to have high integrity to safely store money. Classic money did not rely on accounting. Gold is its own accountant, its amount fixed, and whoever has it, owns it. Self-accountability is an intrinsic feature of precious commodity. However, external accounts CAN be made of gold. The accounts can represent the gold, so the accounts themselves can be used as money. These accounts are social constructs which rely on trust. Next, let us move on to modern money storage.
Modern money is token, or representational, like poker chips. Since this is a social construct which relies on the trustworthiness of the ability to redeem tokens for something real, we are now in the realm of casino managements, and governments with their freakin' laws and special interests. Gov'ts are already pushing to end printed money, and force everyone to use digital fiat currency units within the existing financial services sector (privileged accountant banksta middlemen).
Accounting practice keeps track of de jure ownership. Once you have that, de facto ownership loses nearly all its importance, because the tokens are not intrinsically valuable, and redemptions are made only if the de jure relationship can be established. This is where crypto-currencies, with their intrinsic (built-in) fraud-proof accountability/ provenance really start to shine.
Cryptos are a classic form of money. WTF? you are thinking. Bitcoin (BTC), for example (the pioneer) is not "backed" by anything. That's assuming it's a token money. Au contraire, it's a classic type, with intrinsic value, which is its accountability. BTC provenance is recorded on a distributed ledger, called the blockchain. Now, this intrinsic value is not like the value of a precious metal. Bitcoin is privacy-secure, fraud proof, and in total control of its owner, needing no intermediate party (bank or credit card) to confirm and transfer funds. Bitcoin is self contained (on the blockchain and in your wallet) just as a gold coin is self contained. But to carry several tons of gold, you need a heavy truck. The equivalent value in Bitcoin, indeed ANY amount of Bitcoin, can be stored on a memory chip smaller than a dime. To ship a ton of gold around the world, you need a series of reliable carriers, guards, and security agents. To send any amount of Bitcoin around the world, you just do it on the Internet, takes a few seconds, perfectly secure, receipt confirmed in seconds or less; cost nearly zero. People are already familiar with credit cards and smart phone apps that make payments quick and easy. BTC is currently a little more of a technical challenge, but with all these new features, no wonder it is so popular!
Cryptos are new. Bitcoin's specification was published 2009. Already, newer cryptos are being created with features similar to BTC. Now I'm going to offer you, dear reader, some ideas about future money that follow logically from BTC's example.
Here we do a fast forward. Imagine the Globalist/ secret-society project for world domination is crushed. Nation states have won their independence from the Globalist unions. Continuing the trend, states have been split by a plethora of secession movements into a multitude of small territories, somewhat as it was in middle age Europe. Fiat currencies are defunct. Big banks have been broken into small banks, and most of those have gone out of business. Manipulation of commodities markets has been squelched. Inflation is no longer an official goal set by the bankstas. (Inflation is a clandestine tax which erodes value of money by increasing the supply.) A stable store of value is now the goal. The Internet has taken over many past industries and the people have come to power.
Money is not issued by government, nor by international banking cartel, but there is now a large diverse competitive market of money types offered by various businesses. They are all digital crypto-currencies. They have taken on a similarity to credit cards/ smart phone/ smart watch apps. However, they have various features that serve the interests of their owners. A new feature many of these currencies have, is they pay a yield for holding them. Gold does not do that, it just sits, corrosion-free. Digital money has morphed into income-producing securities. If cryptos can be used as tokens as well as a reliable means of accounting that cuts out the middleman bankstas, whooee, money opens up a new world of opportunity for entrepreneurs to help people develop income opportunities. Bless the Internet, as the Internet blesses us!
19 Industries The Blockchain Will Disrupt 10 min.
Liberty and Equality are not compatible As you can read in The Protocols of Zion (Basic Doctrine) the secret societies employ their mind control slogan "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" to sell the gullible masses on their class warfare agenda. Trouble is, if citizen's innate talents and efforts are able to put into storage the products of their life and liberty (Property), there are bound to be huge differences between citizens. The Zionists want to grab the stored wealth by gov't force. That is why they want a Tyranny of Democracy. They do mind control on the masses, which then mimic the tyranny wanted by the controllers.
Equality "It's not dispossession - it's an expansion of equality!" ABCNews/ Uncomfortable interview w/ Jared Taylor 14 min.
The conventional ideas of equality were non-existence of privileged classes (no nobility, as intended in Declaration of Independence), no special laws, justice is blind, and equality of opportunity.
But nowadays, we have two more kinds of "equality," elite persons who are above the law, (like Jon Corzine (note portrait of Paul Warbrug behind him), the Clintons, and Bill Cosby) and equality of achievement (social justice) because some minority groups were mistreated in the past by our ancestors, so now we have to give them special privileges and affirmative actions. In other words, rob from the "haves" and spread the wealth to the "have nots." This government intervention displaces results from actions, ie. promotes irresponsibility; and punishes achievement, which is a bad idea regarding personnel management. This robbing of the Reech is a Leech axiom.

SHOT 2018/My tales of adventure in Las Vegas

So, you wanna go to SHOT show? You think it's all fun and games? Get to play with guns? See Jesse James and R. Lee Ermey? SHOT show is the annual pilgrimage of the unwashed masses to Las Vegas to rub elbows with youtube celebrities, bloggers and overseas businessmen copying US made equipment and share infectious disease.
If you love guns, gambling and gonorrhea - SHOT show is for you! It is not my typical idea of a good time. I am not a big fan of Las Vegas.
However: I do attend for a few reasons. First, I do enjoy travel and I'm platinum on AA so I can usually score an upgrade. Second, industry people are in there that I do hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars with business with so it's nice to put a face with the name and see what deals are out there. SHOT for me has been a bust for the past few years. Being a value guy, I want to buy at $1000 and sell at $3000 and as of recently the gun business is more like buy for $1 and sell for $1.10 if you get what I mean.
We used to do business at SHOT and now it's just checking in on foursquare, instagram and rubbing elbows with bloggers and the like. I want to make money, not spend money so this is very annoying to me.
Anyways, onto the play by play.
Monday, January 22nd. One day before SHOT show.
The TSA line is a shitshow thanks to, well TSA. I have pre check and breeze right through.
I slog my way to the lounge, as shitty as it is to wait for my winged chariot to DFW. I have gone from being in an abusive relationship with Delta to being in an abusive relationship with AA. Although if you really want to experience the battered spouse feeling, UA is a few gates over.
I board my flight to Dallas/FW and my Renton assembled chariot is having a problem with one of the ring laser gyros, the hate agent tells us we are delayed for an indeterminate amount of time. Even as an AA Plat, I have no cleared upgrades. I am number 4 on the list with one seat open to Dallas/FW. I am 39/61 for Dallas/FW to LAX.
Fuck my life.
I gate check my bags to make life easier for me and the rest of the folks slumming it. If I don't have to worry about being short on time, I like to gate check to free up bins for those who are not as fortunate. Eventually I board and ask the FA to say hi to the captain and get a ride report. Light chop all over north texas today and we're going to take the long way around the field due to wind.
Me: I guess it's true. Dallas always does seem to blow a little harder in the postseason...
CA: Hahhahaha
FO: You got that right! Go eagles!
Having brightened the day of the flight crew, I head back to my MCE seat in Y and kick back and relax by listening to my Rumours, my favorite fleetwood mac album on my ipod.
We land at Dallas an hour and a half late eating into my 4 hour spa layover I had planned. I hightail it to the Centurion lounge in terminal D, my home away from home. Thankfully I don't need a massage since I brought my friend Laura some homemade chocolate rice crispy squares and she gave me a one hour massage and gave me a happy ending.
I grab a plate and help myself to some of the excellent chicken and some mashed red potatoes and bacon It is cheesy and DELICIOUS. Between that and the poblano rice, I can feel it going straight to my thighs. No, I do not care. NOM NOM NOM
https://imgur.com/a/WBcyd
The lounge is packed. The bar is full and I grab a quick single malt as I have my meal since American's not going to feed me. They begin boarding to LAX as I walk out of the lounge. I make it to the gate and the entire plane has boarded because the screens say they are boarding group 9.
Giving the FA a friendly nod, I ask to say hi to the captain and I stride through J and say hello to the two gentlemen flying today. Aviation nerd protip: CHECK YOUR ROUTING!
I didn't, but I had a hunch since arriving from the east we'd get the ANJLL 1 or the HLYWD 1 arrival. I got a 50/50 shot. Let's see how good I am.
Drop my bags at the threshold, poke my head in.
Me: Howdy guys, we still looking good for the Hollywood 1 tonight?
CA: Man, you did your homework yes we are! GABBL transition as a matter of fact!
Damn I'm good.
FC: Nice! I know you guys take a rash of crap from drunk Parker so I like to say hello to the folks who do the heavy lifting and I'm a total airplane dork so it's cool to check the place out.
CA: I'm an airplane dork too! I'm Jeff Rowland, nice to meet ya!
SUPER nice guy. He gave me a tour of the airplane, even took a picture of me in the left seat.
https://imgur.com/a/xVIy6
Here he is showing me some stuff around the airplane. He gives me the grand tour of the 787-9 including this neat feature that actually measures how many G's they have on landing so they know whether or not they need an overweight landing inspection or not. AMAZING airplane. I'm shown all the bells and whistles and they tell me how fun the plane is to fly. Jeff takes a few pics of me in the best seat of the house. I tell the guys I'll see them at the in and out burger on Sepuldeva and I hike back to my seat in W.
The FA's were wondering where I was, and they gave away my assigned seat. I take an empty center aisle seat and make life easier for everyone. W in the 787-9 is a solid hard product. The BE Aerospace MI-Q seat is a good ride whether in it for 3 hours to LAX or 13 to CDG like I was in a few months ago. https://imgur.com/a/iPHVh
The boarding door closes for an on time departure and I watch another airplane movie - American Made with Tom Cruise. He's so dreamy. Jeff's PA's were really lame and had a whole bunch of people laughing in the back on the way to LA. The flight was not long enough. The landing is a perfect grease job on 24L and we await a tug to get towed into gate 41 at LAX. I say thanks again to the flight crew - worthy of note, http://andystravelblog.boardingarea.com/2018/01/29/pilots-lette
My next hop via a 737 to LAS is uneventful. I stop at the Centurion lounge for some freshly squeezed OJ. It is DELICIOUS as AA's app tells me my bags are being unloaded.
I grab my things and hop in the last car Hertz has in the gold section - a 2016 Toyota Corolla. Times are rough. I'm at Circus Circus again. I check in and tell the lady about the last time I was there with the neighbors and the extremely loud sex. Full story: tail end of this - https://www.reddit.com/guns/comments/5podeq/shot_2017my_tales_of_adventure_in_las_vegas/
She damn near busts a gut laughing and upgrades me to a skyrise room and gives me a line pass and complimentary buffet.
I arrive to my room where housekeeping has not cleaned it to my exacting specifications. Specifically, there are like three hairballs from a cat in the chair next to the desk. I ask for another room and they set it up for me. It's now 1AM. In and out burger is closed.
Fuck.
Tuesday, January 23rd SHOT Show Day One
You gotta get into the palazzo garage before 8AM or you are not getting a spot. I get in at 8:01 and miraculously find a spot. They are doing so much construction at the resort that I don't recognize it. I grab my pass and check in with some other industry associates. My first day is semi-eventful as I check out the sig 365, a very promising concealed carry product as well as a few other really neat things and many many useless items.
I run into u/chugbleach in the basement and we trade stories. He shows me some neat stuff he's been working on. We plan to dine later in the week and I continue walking the show when I see the most amazing booth ever.
Backstory: https://www.reddit.com/guns/comments/7ag6oj/gsg_stg_44/dp9u9hw/
I let fluff buy the hook, he posts $120 to win $100 if he gets his HMG gun by the end of Q1. If gun arrives on time, he gets $100 from me. If no, I get $120 from him.
I walk back to chug.
FC: DUDE DUDE DUDE YOU GOTTA SEE THIS COME QUICK
CB: Okay lets go
We walk briskly not 100 feet. I stop quickly. Chug looks confused.
I gesticulate wildly to our right.
This is what we see.
I crack up laughing and can barely contain myself. This is the greatest thing I have seen in weeks.
On that note it is time to take a break for lunch. I head up to one of my vendors who has a hospitality suite for the show and they are serving jambalaya for lunch every day. As a Louisiana boy, we do love jambalaya. There's a reason I spend lots of money with them. I eat and have a coke as I trade gun jokes with other gun dealers. I wander around the show and nothing else jumps at me.
I walk the footbridge over to the Wynn to see how the house is doing. The poker room is full. I draw $2500 from my credit line and head down to the craps table to throw some dice. I have some mixed success as it's getting late and I want to hit the in and out burger so as I'm getting ready to leave, Laura sends me a bunch of filthy text messages about what she wants to do to me when I get back. My chips and raging boner leave the tables quickly as I duck into the bathroom to tell her that if she wants to treat me like a prisoner on a conjugal visit - I went to 8 years of catholic school, she's entering a world of pain. She says game on.
After a quick trip to the cage to cash out, I'm up or down something like $100. I swing by in and out burger for a double double. It is delicious. Sleepy time.
Wednesday, January 24th. Day 2 of SHOT show.
Alarm goes off at 7:45 AM. I wash up, eat and get breakfast. In the garage by 8:15. Still manage to find a spot! Attendance is down this year. I get in line at Larue. They run out of dillo dust at 8:39. This is the line at 8:35 https://imgur.com/a/KLHrg
The show opens at 8:30. Fuck my life. I grab a dillo and some stickers for some friends and a few HK calendars. I wander around and talk to the guys over at Franklin Armory and their new SBR that isn't an SBR, SBS that isn't an SBS and rifle that isn't really a rifle BUT IS STILL A FIREARM. The projectiles they want to sell have fin stabilization and it's like a 55 grain flying Lombardi trophy. It's an interesting idea but I'm not 100% certain I would buy one personally. I trade war stories with a few other friends I meet up with at the show. I head down to the basement and I'm looking at a few accessories from Tactical Walls.
Just as I'm ready to leave - Joe Mantegna shows up and says hi to the reps.
FC: Mr Mantegna! I love your work! Can I get a picture?
JM: Sure.
Someone grabs my phone and snaps a pic
FC: You are great in the simpsons as Fat Tony. Just the best!
JM: (in fat tony voice) I don't get mad. I get stabby.
FC: That's awesome! Thanks! Enjoy the show!
I send the pics to some friends who enjoy snappy Mamet plays and they are all jealous. I head down to the basement. The ATF booth is vacant due to the government shutdown. So is the FBI booth. Oh well. I head upstairs to the manufacturer supplier section and I find out that Olympic Arms is still in business making things. I do a lap and get some business cards from some precision machine companies that can make some elaborate parts. Jambalaya again for lunch. Nom nom nom.
I head down to FN to talk shop with the guys down there and give them shit. FN's new innovation is a two tone FDE/Black gun. So now 50% of the gun does not have to match. I trade barbs with Mike Hoffman and we debate the age old question, is it really gay if you can suck your own cock? Just as I mention this, Steve Bannon shows up at the booth. That's my stop. I say hello to the director of commercial sales on my way out and go to the Knights booth where I find they're making 6.5 Creed stuff now. Interesting how quickly that cartridge has caught on. I talk shop with a few of the KAC guys and then I steal some more HK Kalendars for friends back home.
I hit the Circus Circus buffet with my free pass for the unpleasantness and it is not that great at all. They ran out of roast beef. I mean, really? SHOT SHOW IS IN TOWN! We are beef eating gun owners, and you're gonna run out of roast beef? This would never happen at the Wynn, an amazing property. I make a mental note to sell my MGM Mirage stock and buy some Wynn in the morning. I head back to the craps table and lose a shitload of money. I witness a heater happen after I color up and watch people go nuts. My luck at MGM properties has not been good. Ugh. I don't feel like doing gunnit live and head to sleep early.
Thursday, January 25th. Day 3 of SHOT show.
I message Chug and let him know that it's gotta be tonight if we're gonna hang since I fly out Friday night for Boston. We plan to make plans for dinner. I head to the show and get there at 3 minutes to 8. One of my best customers calls me wanting an XM2010. I head over to Remington and through some finagling they manage to say YES WE CAN SELL IT EVEN THOUGH WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO SELL IT. I work up a quote and get the customer the info and tell him what's what. I visit the nighthawk custom booth where they have a new gun chambered in .45 APC.

I kid with a few FBI guys about their attention to detail. I saunter about the show. Leatherman Tool Group always has some nice things to play with. Tim Leatherman is engraving tools for people with his autograph. I'm happy with all of his products I own and I stop by to shake his hand and tell him that my wave has saved my ass on a hundred different occasions and I once resurrected a Ford off the side of the road. He says he loves hearing the stories and he's a pretty nice guy.
I wander about a little more and I find myself over at the Emerson Knife Company booth looking around.
For those not in the know, Emerson has a bunch of specwar types as customers. Damn good knives and operator customers. One of them is behind the table wearing a badge that says JOHN SMITH - JOHN SMITH INC. He's got arms that are as thick as my legs and he looks like a Navy Seal. He bolts upright from his seat and looks at my wrist.
"Is that a 1675?"
FC: Sure is! Damn good eye! My dad won it in an underground poker game in Hong Kong in 1968 from a couple of navy guys on shore leave that flew F4's off Dixie Station.
"Holy crap, that's fucking awesome!"
We talk watches and guns and killing people for a while. He says he's in the navy and the budweiser insignia necklace he is wearing tells me everything I need to know. Nice guy. I wonder what his real name is as the show closes down and as I walk out the magpul booth gives me a laugh. A paper sign on the door says "DOOR IS LOUD AF CLOSE GENTLY"
I'm not kidding - https://imgur.com/a/GgSkU
I head over to Chug's hotel and he gives me the grand tour. It's way nicer than my hotel. We go out and have dinner. I'm asked if I like Thai.
FC: Tie good, you like shirt?
Nobody gets my simpsons jokes. We go to dinner where a good time is had by all. Chug gets a call and needs to drop off a SHOT show pass to a co-worker of his flying in. As opposed to all the mechanics of a dead drop at the palazzo etc I tell him fuck it, just give it to me and I'll pick him up from the airport. In exchange, I tell him I want all the leftover chicken wings from the Thai place.
It's a deal. I grab the wings and head to McCarran. There's a guy in a BRZ hauling ass and I decide to see what this shitbox can do. I get the Corolla up to 115 MPH on the highway before backing down to a more sensible speed. After 5 minutes of MARCO / POLO I find the fellow and give him his shot show pass and a ride to his hotel. I find it funny that last year I ran an unapproved uber substitute and here we are again and the same thing is happening. I'm offered gas money or a beer after the show and I tell him hey, it's your first time at SHOT - enjoy the show, don't sweat it.
I hightail it up the strip to the Palazzo where I play a bit and eventually see a heater in progress. I split the 6/8 for $120 each and they hit. I press it and they hit again. Maybe this won't be a bad trip after all. Table craps out and I cash out still down a few bucks but better than when I started.
By the time I make it back to the room, it's 4AM. I eat the chicken wings. They're delicious.
Friday, January 26th. Day 4 of SHOT show.
I've gotten most of what I want to get done, done. I ordered some Firearm Instructor body armor from one of my guys since lots of people want me dead first thing in the AM and things were going good. I sleep in and debate what I want for breakfast when I realize things are going a little too good. Nothing really bad has happened this trip yet. I pack up and get ready to leave the hotel when I get a push notification.
MOTHERFUCKER
My flight to Boston has been canceled.
My confirmed first class seats on one of the hardest to upgrade legs in the entire AA route network - LAX to BOS, gone. AA proactively books me on the flight leaving LA a few hours later IN COACH. A middle seat, even. No, just no. I call American and they tell me the plane is broken. Damnit. I look on the app for acceptable reroutings and there is nothing available in first. I say fuck it, I'll deal with this shit later. I have the rental car until midnight, lots of time to make a new plan. I check out of the hotel, throw my bags in the car and head down to the show and it's a freaking ghost town. Parking spaces everywhere. I say bye to a few folks as my phone sends me a notification. WSJ: STEVE WYNN ACCUSED OF DECADES OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT
Oh FUCK MY LIFE. I bought the stock back on Wednesday. GODDAMNIT STEVE WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS BULLSHIT
I skip lunch and walk across the street to the Wynn and their corporate office.
You see, I have a simple theory. If the allegations are false, they should have no problem sending someone out to listen to my concerns and say the allegations are false and here's everything we're doing to fight it. If the allegations are true, they'll send down hired goons to throw me out the door.
It's sorta like spousal infidelity. If A finds evidence of B cheating, credit card statements, sexts, racy pictures, etc - and A confronts B and B admits it and says I want a divorce, B is guilty. If B says A is cheating on them what the fuck are you doing looking at my credit card statements and phone you're the one that's wrong and invading my privacy get the fuck out of my house - B is really guilty.
That's the theory. If they go full retard and bounce me off the property, the stock is probably going to go down some more. If they address the concerns, things should not be as bad.
Since I walked through the property the last time I was in town, I knew where the corporate office was. The name on my broker statement says WYNN RESPORTS and so did the sign on the doors. I walk through the doors and to the end of the hallway where there's another electronically locked door that is unlocked.
There's a security guard who is nonplussed sitting at a desk wondering if I'm lost. I explain to him that I'm a shareholder and I want to know what this company is doing about this catastrophe. He says he can't say/do anything and I'm instructed to leave. I ask him if he can take a message. He says yes, and I'm like you just said you can't do anything. So what's that supposed to mean?
I argue with him about what he supposedly can and cannot do as I eat raspberry macrons that have been plated at the reception area of the corporate office. THESE BETTER BE THE BEST FUCKING MACARONS I HAVE EVER EATEN GODDAMNIT. They are. Fuck.
He tells me that my best bet is to talk to someone else at the resort, not him. Fine.
I leave and head to the concierge desk - because from one concierge to another, we can solve problems. I explain the situation and instead of routing me to the press office or investor relations - they give me a phone and tell me to speak to guest services. AKA the people that help you with your stay as a guest of the hotel. I give the lady taking the message about 15 minutes worth of comments and she's assured me that they'll be passed along to management.
Given the circumstances I think that's the best I'm going to do today. Now, there's the issue of me being stuck in vegas for another night. I look down at my phone and AA has offered three itineraries flying out of McCarran tomorrow IN FIRST CLASS that gets me to Boston in a timely fashion. I jump on the 625AM flight to Charlotte. This means I need to be at the car rental by 525AM and out the door around 0430. Fuck my life. And I have nowhere to sleep/showeshit/shave.
As I'm walking back to the esplanade to cross back over to the Palazzo where my car is, I notice the registration desk. I get in line and a lovely lady asks what she can do for me.
I tell her that I'm a shareholder and I'm pretty mad about the way the company is handling their sex offender in chief. And given the $18 haircut I took on the stock today, if there's an angry shareholder discount on a room tonight I think that would be more than fair given the circumstances. She agrees and gets me a bottle of water and the manager. The manager asks me if I've stayed at the hotel before, the answer is yes and asks to see my ID so she can see if she can plug me in at a repeat guest rate.
A few minutes go by and I wait patiently at the desk when I'm tapped on the shoulder.
There's two former NFL linebackers, one with his back towards me and the other introducing himself as the director of security.
Hmmm. Lets see. For those not in the know, there's only one exit in and out of the wynn registration desk.
If there's two bodies on me, there's gotta be at least two more at each side of the wall behind it that I can't see, I figure 4 sets of eyes running the eye in the sky all with their eyes glued to the monitors, the director of security is holding my ID which means he's already got my play, my comps, my markers, run me through central credit, my red card, he's got metro running me for wants/warrants and there's probably an unmarked metro ford next to a service exit with an open door and a seat reserved for me in the back.
I look down at my watch. The market is closed. I can't sell. Fuck. Because there is no way in hell this stock is holding $180 monday morning.
Quickly, I bang out a message to my brother letting him know I am about to be arrested at the Wynn and to start googling Las Vegas bail bonds.
The two security guys tell me to step away from the front desk and they want to know what the hell I'm doing. I tell them I want answers from the management of this company about how they're handling this disaster. They say I can't just walk into a casino corporate office and ask to speak to someone.
Well, I just did. Why can't I?
They said it represents a major security risk and a breach of their perimeter. After all, Mr. Wynn takes his security at the hotel very seriously.
Me: I suppose if I were a sex offender with hired goons, I'd take my security seriously too. And if you really didn't want people going back there - last time I checked, this is a casino. The doors have locks. Perhaps you should have oh I don't know, locked them?
Wynn Security: What makes you think you can just walk in here and talk to us like that?
Me: I'm a stockholder. Technically you work for me.
Wynn Security: You honestly expect that a big company like us is going to send someone out of the corporate office to talk to a guy like you about a thing like this? That never happens in corporate america.
Me: That's strange. Michael Moore did exactly that and that's what made him famous. What's your point?
We bantered in the registration area of the Wynn for something like an hour and 45 minutes as the director of security wandered back and forth. They never backed down with the questions and I never backed down from the answers. A lot of casino security is former law enforcement so they're looking for that time you change your story like on an episode of cops. For instance, if it was cops it would go like
Cop: who's drugs are these?
1: Never seen em before
fast forward 2 min
1: I mean my friend smokes pot, maybe it's his
Cop: I thought you said you never seen em before?
fast forward 2 min
1: So I smoke a little pot okay
Cop: I thought you said it might be your friends pot?
fast forward 2 min
1: yeah it's my pot
They were looking for a reason to throw me out and as far as I can tell, they probably still are. I'm sorta expecting a registered letter in the mail barring me from the property in a week. If I start yelling, it's disorderly conduct and they have a case. If start pushing someone around, same thing. But if I speak candidly and gesticulate wildly and raise cogent points about how every single hotel employee I've dealt with thus far owns a combined total of zero shares in the company - they have no skin in the game and I do. So, they can't really criticize my opinion as wrong because I'm the stockholder not them. At least, that's my opinion. I could be wrong.
Well, the goons disagreed with me and said I was wrong. They also said that this could have been accomplished with a phone call. I said no, because you wouldn't take a phone call seriously. And now you're taking this seriously. So, match point: FC.
They didn't like that. It would not surprise me in the least if Steve Wynn was in the security booth with a radio telling his guys to find some reason to arrest me and have me sent to Clark County booking. This guy just feels guilty as sin. I can't prove it but my gut has usually been right about this sort of thing.
As I'm waiting for my inevitable arrest and booking, I wonder if American Airlines will allow me another flight change due to temporary incarceration. Because there's no way I'll be able to leave the state with an ROR or a signature bond out. I look over at Mean Joe Greene Jr and tell him I was too angry to eat lunch and I'd like to have a seat before my blood sugar crashes and my head hits the floor and Steve sends me a bill for the shattered italian marble.
He gestures towards a chair in the reception area and I have a sit. He offers to bring me another water. I decline. He brings me a water anyways. I consume both the waters as compliments of the house as a sign of untoward cooperation.
Out of the corner of my eye I see the director of security talking to two metro PD guys with handcuffs out. I hear over the radio they're asking for a rover to take me down to the security office for fingerprinting and photographs. He is gesticulating wildly.
The director of security comes back over and he tries to get me to crack on my story. I tell him I'm here as a shareholder as a private citizen demanding accountability of the management. I will not apologize for walking through an unlocked door to the corporate office asking to speak to someone to hear out my concerns, I will not apologize for going to the concierge since the previous person was very unhelpful and I will not apologize for expecting the highest standards of a fortune 1000 company chairman and CEO. And until you pony up and buy some stock, I'm not about to take a lecture about what is and isn't acceptable behavior from people who don't have skin in the game protecting what should be by all accounts a registered sex offender.
He looks back at Metro PD.
They shrug.
They've got nothing chargeable on me.
Hell, I'm not even counting cards this time.
Next thing I know he quickly walks away and returns with a late 20's hispanic fellow who introduces himself as the hotel manager. He says that he's gotten a report from security and that Mr. Wynn's private life he cannot comment on but the concerns I have will be sent up towards management.
FC: So you're the hotel manager? So you report to Matt Maddox. You tell him that this is a mess. Nobody comes back from this sort of thing. Not Harvey Weinstein. Not Louis CK. Not Matt Lauer. Not Bill O'Reilly. Not Bill Cosby. Not Kevin Spacey. Not Charlie Rose. Not Al Franken. And the LAST time this happened at Mirage, a shareholder revolt wound up sending the company into the hands of MGM. What's to stop Sheldon from across the street from doing the same thing? You tell them that.
The manager nods and offers me a room at a rate, inclusive of resort fee and taxes of $335/night. I take out my phone, look at the Hotel Tonight app and realize that I'm being charged more money than if I were to book the room from a consolidator.
Now, I don't mind the lie about understanding where I'm coming from. I do mind the insult to my intelligence. I am handed back my ID and the hotel manager offers his business card. I take his business card and go over to the cage. I close my credit line and take my deposit out of the cage. I'm down for the trip. Fuck this shit, I'll deal with it later. I call my brother and tell him that I've been released. We look at some flights and to get back to Boston will require another night in Las Vegas. Everything leaving tonight is full due to the conventions closing up.
AA has some seats open in first via Charlotte and Philly, I take the Charlotte flight leaving at 6:30 AM from McCarran and they confirm me seats in first all the way to Logan. This is the only thing to go right today. I purchase some clean clothes since I will not have time to do laundry in Boston anymore due to the delay and head over to the palace station oyster bar. The wait is about 2 hours but I make some friends in line while I'm there. I am torn between the alaskan chowder and the bouillabaisse. I ask Steve behind the bar what he thinks is best. He says do the bouillabaisse. I tell him that sounds excellent, and to add extra lobster. I ask him how long, he says could be 30 minutes but check back in 20. I tell him I'm gonna go hit the tables and I'll be back in 20. The timer on my phone begins counting down.
I belly up to the nearest craps table and I drop my cash down. I tell them I want it in black and red and the croupier complies. I bet the 6/8 split with mixed success and the pass line with odds. The shooter misses the point. I look down at my dwindling stack of chips and there's 15 minutes left.
Fuck it. Go big or go home. Lets get this shit over with. The point comes off. I drop $100 on the pass line. New shooter gets the dice and the come out roll hits a 10.
I look at the gal with the whip. I throw her a stack of chips.
FC: Full odds on the ten, $200 hard way, give me all the numbers and a nickel c and e.
New shooter proceeds to hit every number on the board, midnight, yo and a speed limit. Pass line pays even money. Pass odds pays 2-1. I'm looking down at a big stack of chips. What the fuck just happened?
I drop $100 on the pass line again, the point comes out for an 8. I take full odds and all the numbers. New shooter hits every number on the board, midnight, yo, except the 8. The guy next to me has the all or nothing at all working so the only thing left to hit is the 8 and it's gonna pay 175:1. The 8 does not hit. Everyone is chasing the 8'er from Decatur.
I look down at my stack and the table limit and the boxman.
FC: hey Joe, what's the juice on laying the 8?
Joe: 5 points!
I take down my pass line odds.
FC: I want everything off and I'll lay the 8 for a dime.
Everyone at the table looks at me like I'm a lunatic. I slide over two purple chips and two green for the vig.
Time remaining until bouillabaisse: 8 minutes.
Lets see what happens. The dice bang around a bunch of more times. I'm ahead for this trip. Way ahead. Next thing I know, the gal with the whip calls no roll. One of the dies have left the table.
Time remaining until bouillabaisse: 4 minutes.
This is my stop.
FC: Take down my lay, and I'll color up.
The boxman colors me up, I leave a nice tip for the crew and start to walk over to the cage to cash in. I hear screaming and profanity, I turn around and I see the dealers stacking chips. The shooter has 7'd out.
Time remaining until bouillabaisse: 2 minutes.
There's a long line at the cage. I walk back to the oyster bar and I see a big bowl with a plate covering it. Steve behind the bar has thought of everything.
I turn the plate over and look down at my stack of chips. Maybe today won't be so bad after all.
https://imgur.com/a/bjK7R
The bouillabaisse is delicious. The win is even more delicious. I nom my way to the bottom of the bowl and settle up the bill. I leave Steve a nice tip as I head over to the Palazzo to say hi to some friends. I find myself at a craps table you can hang meat upon. This is not good. It's getting late and I head over to my room at the Mandalay Bay.
Now, here's the fucked up part. This girl I've been hooking up with didn't hook up with me before I left for SHOT. She's been messing with my brain for a whole week. I check in to the Mandalay Bay where there's a goddamn pornstar convention going on.
FML.
I find myself down at a craps table at 11PM and bringing a frontier flight attendant named Amber back to my room. The lucky streak continues. My flight leaves in a few hours. I kick her out of my room and pass out.
Flight leaves at 625 for CLT. Need to be at McCarran at 525. Out the door of the hotel by 5AM at the latest. I set my alarm.
*Saturday, January 27th. *
I wake up to see the sun shining through my hotel room. I look down at the alarm clock. 8:01AM.
My long standing joke is that I sleep like a dead prostitute. The evening of ravenous illegal in 48 states sex has taken its toll. Fuck. I grab the phone and press the button for guest services. I turn on the speaker as I open my bag wide and just stuff everything in as fast as I can. I throw my boots on as I tell them to check me out over the phone. I haul ass downstairs to the garage and I get to McCarran and board the shuttle to Terminal 1. I walk up to the AA desk knowing I am 11 different kinds of fucked. Nancy the gate agent starts working on my departure. AA's rule is 2 hours from departure on a flat tire. That's 8:25 AM. It's a few minutes before 9. Nancy the great agent cannot get anything to work. She has to put me in the special services line. By the time I get there, they tell me I'm flying standby and I'm on the flight to Philly leaving at 1PM in the afternoon. There is no way in hell they can get me on the 10AM to Phoenix.
My cousin is getting married in Boston and she is going to fucking kill me. I told her I'd be there around 6PM on the rebooking. And now I'm going to be leaving for Philly in 4 hours. Granted, the Amex Centurion Lounge has freshly squeezed OJ but that's not going to be enough today. I run to TSA and get cleared. I run past the Centurion to head straight for the Phoenix gate. Hopefully other folks have had an irish layover. The gate agent there starts working me and she says that they have two open seats and that they're gonna get me on. Just sit tight. I step to the side to let her help a few other folks gate check bags. The clock is ticking and her colleague closes the boarding door as I'm standing next to the gate looking fucked. I take a deep breath and try to keep it together.
A tap on the shoulder.
"Sir, your boarding pass. Exit row window. I've taken the liberty and called back to make sure there's space in the overhead for my bags so you don't have to gate check. You are good to go."
I look up at the three ladies working the podium.
FC: Can I hug any of you?
Gate Agent 1: No
Gate Agent 2: I'm sick
Gate Agent 3: Sure, why not?
I head behind the counter and give her a hug. She seems pleased.
I hightail it to the door. Gate agent 2 opens it up for me. I run down the jetway like a charging rhino, Chris Christie like. The flight attendants greet me by name and they realize that my nose is bleeding from the 8 ball I shared with Amber a few hours back. The FA points at my nose and asks me if I'd like to step into the lav. I realize it's probably pretty bad. I leave my bags in the galley and duck in and I stuff a bunch of paper in my nose as an ersatz tampon. I walk back out, grab my bags and I declare to the entire plane it's the dry air not a cocaine problem.
Nobody believes me.
I take my seat and there's an empty seat between me and an in uniform FA on the way home. We chat a bit and Cathy thinks my story is hilarious. She even gets on AA's PALL list for the flight to Boston and checks and says I'm number one on standby R4. A nice lady, I offer her one of my extra LaRue Dillo's. She thinks they're cute.
The working FA walks back and looks down at the traveling FA and says very discreetly there's a 40 minute ground hold due to PHX losing a runway. This is gonna be really really tight. My connecting flight to Boston is not looking good. We wait the 40 minutes for the hold and make it to PHX about 15 minutes behind schedule. I bolt to the Boston gate. I ask if they've cleared all the standby passengers. They say yes. I say I should be number one and they hand me a ticket in coach.
FC: Any way I can talk you into a seat in the front of the plane?
The hate agent just looks at me funny. He does not seem to think that's happening. He asks me if I have status on the airline. Sure do. He says no promises.
I tell him no sweat, I'm gonna go take a leak and come back around in 5.
I walk back up and he hands me my new boarding pass.
https://imgur.com/a/IJuPe
I call my cousin and tell her that I'm gonna be a few hours late. Great ride all the way into Boston. I sleep like a dead prostitute.
https://imgur.com/a/RKMSu
Just as we cruise past the city of big shoulders, the FA wakes me up.
"Mr Hayden, would you like some ice cream?"
I look at my neighbor who is a middle age female executive and she is plowing through hers like Sherman through Atlanta.
FC: You know what, Chuck? I've always wanted to say this. I'll have what she's having.
https://imgur.com/a/our5R
Ice cream on the ground, delicious.
Ice cream on a plane, FUCKING FANTASTIC.
FC out.

The Munder Difflin Podcast (RWtO)

 

Office Podcast Series Ep1

 
(Cold Open)
Jim is sitting on Pam’s desk. They’re talking loud so Dwight can hear them.
Pam: “Did you hear that noise last night? It sounded like it came from the abandoned factory down the street.”
Jim: “Yeah, what was that? It sounded like a dog, but…” Jim shivers.
Pam: “Do you think it could have something to do with that girl walking around the neighborhood? You know, the one with the really short haircut that took all of our waffles.”
Dwight looks over to them, interested.
Jim: “That’s where the waffles went?”
Pam: “I just don’t feel safe at home anymore. Have you seen the drawings Cece made?”
Jim: “You mean the ones with the blue rivers that she plastered all over our walls, how could I miss them?”
We see Dwight mouthing the words, ‘Oh my god.’
Pam: “Something has to be done, Jim. Think of the children.”
Jim: “I’ll take a look after work.”
Dwight: “No!”
Jim: “Dwight, we’re having a private conversation.” Jim almost breaks, but manages to keep from laughing.
Pam: “No, Jim, hear him out. Dwight is a purple belt.”
Dwight: Sighing, “Unfortunately, karate won’t be enough to defeat a Demogorgon.”
Dwight pulls out an assortment of weapons from his desk; a hatchet, a can of hair spray, a lighter, a mace, etc. He puts them in his briefcase and storms out.
(Talking Head – Jim and Pam)
Jim: “We weren’t sure what we would do with all of our extra Halloween decorations last year—then it hit us.”
Pam: “Jim spent all night putting them up in the abandoned factory.” She smiles at Jim, then frowns. “You don’t think he’ll burn the place down, do you?”
Jim’s looks at the camera and shakes his head.
Jim: “I don’t…" He begins fidgeting with his hands. "Think so.”
(Inside the conference room Holly and Michael are sitting next to each other, both leaning over a piece of recording equipment.)
Michael: “How is everyone in podcast land? This is Michael Scott, and sitting next to me is the very funny, very talented, and —you’ll have to take my word for it— very smoking, Holly Flax. Holly, say hi to everyone in podcast land.”
Holly gives Michael an excited smile.
Holly: Affecting an old-timey radio voice, she says, “Hello to all of yous in podcast land. Say, what’s the weather like this time of year?”
(Talking Head – Holly)
Holly: “I think Michael really believes there’s a county called Podcast land.” She tilts her head to the side. “He recently asked me if I thought it would be fun to visit there.” Her smile falters slightly. “Sometimes I can’t tell if he’s pulling my leg or not.”
(Back to Conference Room)
Michael: “So, this is the first Munder Difflin Paper Podcast. Not to be confused with a certain”—cough—“paper company.”
(Talking Head – Michael, behind his desk in his office)
Michael: “Yeah, we had to change the name after someone in corporate heard our discussion of the whole Bill Cosby affair. It… was not well received.” Michael crosses his arms. “Not the discussion so much, but rather, our dramatic re-interpretation.” Michael frowns. “And you know what? Holly did an excellent Bill Cosby impersonation. Very tastefully done.”
(Back to Conference Room)
Michael: “What’s our first segment, Holly?”
Holly: “I thought we could start with relationship advice.”
Michael: “Yes! Let’s bring in our relationship experts.” Michael leans over and dials an extension on the conference room phone.
Jim’s Voice: “Hello?”
Michael: “Jim, grab the Pamster. Get her out of her wheel, and get her in here. One order of P.B. and J., please.”
Jim’s Voice: Sigh
Michael: “On the double.”
Jim and Pam walk in. Pam is visibly pregnant.
Holly: “Looks like we’ve got three guests for the price of two.”
Pam smiles and rubs her belly.
Pam: “I guess so.” Still smiling she adds, “He might be a little hard to hear.” Jim helps Pam into a seat then sits down next to her.
Michael: “Well, let’s get a mic up in there, and hear what the little guy has to say.”
Holly: "Michael."
Pam looks at the camera, mouthing, ‘what?’ Jim shakes his head.
Michael: Voice strained from trying not to laugh, “This is baby Halpert, and it’s so dark in here. Am I a boy or a girl, let’s find—“
Holly: “Let's go to email.”
Michael: “Huh? Oh, yeah, uh… okay." Michael checks his tablet. "Alrighty, our first email asks,” He looks over at Jim and Pam, mouth open in excitement. “Wow, this is timely, our first email asks, ‘Is it normal to stop having sex when the wife gets pregnant?” Michael looks over and asks, “Jim? Pam? Who wants to take this?”
Jim shakes his head and looks down at the table. Pam looks at the camera, her cheeks reddening.
Jim: “Hey,” Jim says as he claps his hands together, “How about we do another one.”
Michael presses a button on a soundboard. A pre-recorded voice comes from the speakers— it’s Michael’s voice.
Pre-Recorded Michael: “That’s what she said.”
Jim: Looking confused, “The sound effect is your own voice?”
Michael: “I...” Michael looks to Holly then the Camera then back to Jim, “They’re all of me.”
Jim looks at the camera.
Michael: “All right,” Michael waves his hands and continues, “Fine. We’ll do another. Ahhh, a good one! A listener wants to know what Jim’s 2005 Dundie was. Hmm…that’s not really a relationship question…”
Jim: “Well, that was the first time Pam and I kissed so…”
Pam: “Wait, what?”
Jim: “Have we never talked about this?”
Pam: “No, when did I kiss you?”
Jim: “After you won ‘whitest sneakers’, you seriously don’t remember?”
(Talking Head – Pam)
Pam: “What!? I thought our first kiss was after that Casino night we had in the warehouse.” Pam looks at the camera. “Why didn’t you guys tell me? Our first kiss and I don’t even remember it!”
(Back to Conference Room)
Michael: “Alight, exciting stuff on the Munder Difflin podcast today. Taking trips down mannerly lane.”
Holly: “Next up, Andrew Bernard with his segment, ‘Nard Talk’.”
Michael pushes a button on his soundboard.
Pre-recorded Michael: “Nard Talk!”
Andy: “Thank you Michael and Holly, it’s good to be back. This week on Nard Talk we’re going to go over the Nard’s stock picks of the month.”
(Talking Head)
Andy: “I took a semester of personal finance at Cornell, and I always listen to Planet money on the drive home, so, yeah, I’m kind of an expert on…” Andy struggles to think of the term, “Financial… comings and goings. But, no, I don't personally invest any of my money. Nard Talk is more of a 'Do as I say, not as I do' kind of thing.”
(Back to Conference Room)
Andy: “Ford Motor Company? The Nard gives that stock… a solid bark.”
Andy pushes a button on a soundboard placed in front of him. We hear Andy barking loudly through its speakers.
Camera pans to Michael who is glaring daggers at Andy.
Michael: “What did I say about bringing your own soundboard?”
Andy: “Not to.”
Michael: “And what did you bring?”
Andy pushes a button. It’s him whimpering like a dog. Andy gives Michael a sad face with his bottom lip curled down. In the background, past the blinds, we see Jim reading something on his desk. Pam is looking over at him with a sad smile.
(End Scene – We’re behind Kevin. He’s placing an order on his computer. Oscar is standing behind him, shoulders crossed.)
Oscar: “Really, you’re putting your money into that company? The debt ratio alone, Kevin…”
Kevin: “It got like three nard barks. The stock is hot.”
Oscar: “Did you even look at their 10k? The historical average? Last year’s ROI?”
Kevin: “I tried, but… too many numbers…” Kevin shrugs with his hands spread out. “It’s easier to go off of the experts.”
Oscar throws up his hands and walks away.

Had fun today, writing a list of jobs that I don't want my daughter to have. Thought you fellow Dads might like it, and add a few.

Yesterday, I told my 8yo daughter that I want her to grow up happy and be a kind person. The job she holds doesn't matter to me.
That sounds awesome, but the more I think about it, there’s a whole mess of jobs I wouldn’t want her to have.
Of course, if she’s an adult, she can do whatever she wants, but let’s say that if she took one of these jobs, there’d be some problems.
So, while I sat by myself at lunch today, I compiled a list of jobs that Delaney will not be allowed to have.
Please add to my list.
And last but not least, and this is biggest rule of all – Any job that requires her to live more than an hour away from her parents.

Drew And Mike – March 21, 2018

What's new in the Bill Cosby case: accusers, witnesses, #MeToo

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 81%. (I'm a bot)
The second trial of Bill Cosby on sexual assault charges is shaping up to be far different from the first, which ended in a mistrial last June with a hopelessly deadlocked jury that could not agree on whether "America's Dad" drugged and molested Andrea Constand at his home in 2004.
Paperwork filed in recent weeks names two potential out-of-state witnesses, one of whom had dinner with Constand and Cosby in November 2003 at the Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut, where Cosby was performing.
The second is Constand's friend Sherri Williams, who is likely to be asked about conversations they may have had about Cosby.
Cosby's lawyers have also indicated that they want to call Marguerite Jackson, who worked at Temple University at the same time as Constand and who claims that Constand once told her that she could accuse a celebrity of drugging and abusing her to get money.
If more black jurors are seated for the second trial, that could be a boon to Cosby, seen by some as a barrier-busting hero.
One told reporters that he doubted Constand's account, noting that she had gone to Cosby's house in a midriff-baring top.

On witness stand, accuser calls Bill Cosby a 'serial rapist'

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 73%. (I'm a bot)
Decades after they say Bill Cosby knocked them out with intoxicants and sexually assaulted them, three of his accusers confronted the 80-year-old comedian in court Wednesday, with one woman pointedly calling him a "Serial rapist" and another asking him through her tears, "You remember, don't you, Mr. Cosby?".
The women's charged rhetoric prompted several mistrial requests from Cosby's lawyers - which were denied - as prosecutors built their case that Cosby was one of Hollywood's biggest predators long before he met Andrea Constand, the chief accuser in his sexual assault retrial.
Now well into middle age, the accusers spoke of entering Cosby's orbit as starstruck young women seeking career help or, in the case of a casino bartender from Reno, Nevada, simply looking for a fun time.
Lasha, Baker-Kinney and a third woman who also testified, Heidi Thomas, are among five additional accusers whom prosecutors plan to call to make the case that Cosby, once revered as "America's Dad," was a Hollywood predator who is only now facing a reckoning after allegedly assaulting Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.
The additional accusers could also help prosecutors insulate Constand from the defense's contention that she is a "Con artist" who preyed on Cosby's vulnerability after the 1997 killing of his son, Ennis, and then framed him to score a big payday via a $3.4 million civil settlement.
Outside court, Cosby spokeswoman Ebonee Benson called the testimony from prior accusers a "Prosecution by distraction."
