  1. It seems like most of the violence that currently exists in the world isn't as a result of Muslim Terrorists but as a result of White Terrorists. The only difference is the later has access to more and better weapons right now. I've also noticed that here in America that lately there seems to be more acts of terror committed by white people and not by muslims. Thoughts?

  4. Gay checklist: Do you... Own a H&M scarf? Jack off listening to Mozart? Bitch and moan about LA? Wish you were in the rain reading Hemingway? Not eat meat? Drive electrical cars? Need SPF 45 just to stay alive? Pull ‘em down and there’s really nothing there? Are you... So sad? (maybe you should buy a happy meal) So skinny?

  7. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/23/world/europe/denmark-quran-burning.html?_r=0 In an outrageous turn of events in a country that proclaims to be "secular" and allows flag burning and a whole host of other behaviors, a man has been charged with "blasphemy" because he burned a holy book. Copenhagen has been host to all sorts of religious blasphemy; Madonna concerts where she humps a crucifix and strips in a Nun's habit. However that was Catholicism, blaspheming against Islam is apparently unacceptable. Of the Danish blasphemy law: " The blasphemy law has been invoked only a handful of times since its creation in 1866, most recently in 1971, when two people broadcast a song mocking Christianity and stirred a debate over female sexuality. They were acquitted. No one has been convicted of the crime since 1946, when a man dressed himself up as a priest and mock-baptized a doll at a masquerade ball. "
  8. Tru Calling is one of those shows to me. The ratings averaged around 4 million for both seasons. When it got cancelled, it was quite messy (when it came to episodes airing) Season two premiered in the United States on March 31, 2005. The final episode was never aired on Fox due to its Christmas theme. The series finale was first aired in North America on January 21, 2008 on the Sci Fi Channel during a Tru Calling series marathon. The fact that the actual series finale aired 3 years later though Are there any TV shows (without spoiling) that you were shocked that they had gotten cancelled?
  9. I just looked at their population, because I'm intrigued by this information. XXX made 137 million alone in China after two weeks. I'm baffled at this, because Resident Evil is projected to perform better than XXX. This is breaking records. Look up XXX at Box Office Mojo. Here I'll link you to it. http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?page=intl&country=CH&id=xxx3.htm Date (click to view chart) Rank Weekend Gross / % Change Gross-to-Date Week # Feb. 10–12 1 $60,415,832 - $61,174,428 1 Feb. 17–19 1 $26,459,210 -56.2% $137,604,032 2 Now how is that even remotely possible? What happened!? Why are these random movies blowing up? I've never seen a film break over 100 million alone in a country, other than domestically. Let's look at Avatar, the highest grossing film ever created. China Fox 1/7/10 - - $204,129,854 Final China wins this round again. But that film was from 2010, wasn't it? How come 7 years later, they are breaking records again, especially for "lackluster" sequels. Resident Evil can potentially break 150 million in China alone, if not more. Anyone want to dig deeper into this? It's very interesting. Is this normal for China? Either way, I'm so happy Resident Evil has a strong chance of beating Afterlife's overall gross. I don't want this franchise to end (just Alice...).

  12. President Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, a senior White House adviser, pushed to exclude criticism of a global climate deal from a forthcoming executive order, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday evening. Several people familiar with the move told the newspaper that the language was axed from an earlier draft of the order after Ivanka and Kushner intervened. Trump is expected to sign at least two orders within days aimed at unraveling former President Barack Obama's environmental and climate regulations, according to the newspaper. One White House official told the Journal that Kushner and Ivanka Trump are considered to be a moderating influence on the president's views on environmental issues and climate change. http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/320943-report-kushner-ivanka-pushed-to-strike-climate-deal-criticism-from
  13. According to an exclusive in Us Weekly, Hillary Clinton was approached about being on Dancing with the Stars‘s 24th season. The Democratic former nominee for president declined the offer, although her shimmy would have undoubtedly won her the popular vote. Sources revealed that former First Lady Michelle Obama also said no to appearing on the show, though we all know she can dance. Yikes. One wonders how the producers feel knowing Obama was cool with an appearance on iCarly, but not DWTS. source

The suspect, Adam Purinton, a 51-year-old Olathe resident, was drinking at a bar in an Applebee’s in Clinton when he was arrested early Thursday, about five hours after the shooting, police said. The suspect reportedly told the bartender that he needed a place to hide out. Assistant Clinton Police Chief Sonny Lynch said that a bartender called police after the man talked about being involved in a shooting. Clinton officers responded and took the man into custody without incident. Lynch said the man was not armed when he was arrested. At least one witness reportedly heard the suspect yell “get out of my country” shortly before shooting men he thought were Middle Eastern.

In an email to employees, Garmin officials identified the fatal victim as employee Srinivas Kuchibhotla. Alok Madasani was injured, the email said. “Unfortunately, two associates on our Aviation Systems Engineering team, Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani, were shot. We are devastated to inform you that Srinivas passed away and Alok is currently recovering in the hospital,” Garmin said in the email. In a public statement, Garmin said, “We’re saddened that two Garmin associates were involved in last night’s incident, and we express our condolences to the family and friends of our co-workers involved. Garmin will have grievance counselors on-site and available for its associates today and tomorrow.” Kuchibhotla posted on LinkedIn in 2014 that he managed helicopter programs. He had a master’s degree in electrical and electronics engineering from the University of Texas at El Paso. He earned his bachelor’s degree at the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University in India.

Records also indicate Purinton may have served in the Navy. There are no federal or Missouri criminal records on Purinton. Records indicate Purinton has an inactive pilot’s license. After the shooting, a heavy police presence descended upon neighborhoods close to Austins, which is near Olathe South High School and the headquarters of Garmin Ltd. At one point, authorities blocked off several intersections near 155th and Lindenwood, just south of where police had set up a command post at Scarborough Elementary School. Police in military-style vehicles and officers in camouflage gear were seen in the vicinity of a house there. Clinton police took the suspect into custody at 12:40 a.m. Thursday, according to a statement from Olathe police. Clinton is about 80 miles from Olathe and generally takes about 90 minutes to travel there by vehicle. The suspect was being interviewed by detectives from Olathe and was transferred to the Henry County Jail later Thursday. Witnesses said the suspect was in Austins drinking and making racial slurs. At one point, they said, one of the regulars stood up to the man. Neighbors in the Scarborough neighborhood said the suspect may have suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. He also may have recently been diagnosed with a serious illness. Four hours after the shooting, investigators were inside the bar combing for evidence. Tyler Lape, 23, of Olathe, was at the bar and left about five minutes before the shooting. He said he thought a friend of his was among the injured, possibly shot in the shoulder and the hand. Lape said the bar was packed with people watching the University of Kansas basketball game. Lape was having a beer with his friend and left to go home and let his dogs out. Minutes later, he heard news of the shooting. “I was just there, that’s impossible,” he thought. By the time he got back, the bar was a crime scene. Lape said he didn’t know why his friend would have been shot, and he was worried about him. “He’s a really nice guy,” Lape said. “He would stick up for anybody. He’s not a guy who would start a fight.” Garret Bohnen watched police work the crime scene from a car across the street from the bar. Bohnen said he was worried about the fate of the Austin workers, which includes a roommate. He knows many of the regulars, whom he has served before. The roommate called Bohnen after the incident. “He said, ‘Yo, someone got shot,’ ” Bohnen said. “He said it three times over.” Bohnen added the incident was frightening. “It’s scary,” he said. “It’s a place I know. It’s like a miniature family. The regulars know us, and we know the regulars.” Former University of Kansas football player Daymond Patterson II tweeted that a cousin once worked at the bar. Patterson, now a personal trainer for professional athletes, expressed disbelief about the shooting. “Heard somebody randomly went into a restaurant my cousin used to work at in Olathe today and shoot (sic) it up,” Patterson wrote. “...Crazy world!”

  20. Facebook's WhatsApp update includes Snapchat like features Facebook Inc. (FB) has not yet run out of ways to ape Snapchat. The company's messaging app WhatsApp has announced an overhaul of its status feature which will allow users to share their statuses in the form of videos, pictures and GIFs. The feature was beta tested with users in November last year and will become available on iOS, Android and Windows platforms starting February 24. It has escaped no one's attention that the new feature is very similar to Snapchat Stories. Techcrunch has called it "an encrypted Snapchat clone." WhatsApp Status comes with end-to end encryption and ensures that the status disappears within 24 hours of being set. Privacy settings will allow users to control who sees their status Facebook, which acquired Whatsapp in 2014, also famously tried to buy Snapchat in 2013 for $3 billion. Since then it has integrated Snapchat-like sharing capabilities in its platforms. Read more. I have the update and I despise it.
