    i only saw it once, so i don't know how often it's getting repeated.

    i like this one much much more, even if it has been resurrected from last December:

    I could imagine both sides saying "but everyone in Iceland is white!" for very different reasons.

    you guys read this GQ article about the dude who lived in the Maine woods for 30 years surviving on stuff he stole from people's cabins?

    The Last True Hermit

    He stole radios and earphones and hid an antenna up in trees. For a while, he listened to a lot of conservative talk radio. Later he got hooked on classical music—Tchaikovsky and Brahms, yes; Bach, no. "Bach is too pristine," he said. He went through a spell of listening to television shows on the radio; "theater of the mind," he called it. Everybody Loves Raymond was a favorite. But his undying passion was classic rock: the Who, AC/DC, Judas Priest, and above all, Lynyrd Skynyrd. We covered hundreds of topics while chatting in jail, and nothing received higher praise than Lynyrd Skynyrd. "They will be playing Lynyrd Skynyrd songs in a thousand years," he proclaimed.

    Dude seems like he pretty much cracked the code.

    Mostly my mind is blown at the thought of listening to a bunch of Everybody Loves Raymond without ever seeing it. I guess the visuals are mostly superfluous since its staging is very straightforward. Still, I'd love to see into his "theater of the mind."

    Pretty happy that the FBI decided to actually pursue this hacker who is leaking all the celebrity nudes just so that someday I can see a picture of this guy. $100 Members-Only Ninja Turtles Fan Forum dollars on this guy having a gnarly neck beard.

    I only looked at a couple because I didn't think I could participate meaningfully in any discussion about this without a clear understanding of what was posted.

    I've never heard such a loud and unified outcry against leaked/stolen nude photos. Is there some special big brotherly love for J-Law, or is this just the hack that broke the camel's back?

    I thought Ariana Grande was 16 or something?

    I've never been compelled to look at celeb nudes or watch sex tapes (this is not a humblebrag), I barely know who half these women are, they tend to strike me as boring people and that's a subject I'm sort of an expert on so

    I can't imagine there being this kind of reaction in the past to this kind of leak. I guess it's one thing to have made a VHS and mislay it, another to have backed up iCloud pictures distributed like this.

    Also lol @ The Fappening.

    I think it's the sheer scale of it. Plus anything that can simultaneously inspire iwantsomeofthat and Ha-rumpf. reactions from different camps is tailor-made for social media wars.

    I couldn't sleep last night and I turned on CNN at like 7am to find out about the two murdered NYPD officers. Really so tragic and weird. The scariest part was the slew of officers turning their back on Bill de Blasio as he was exiting the hospital.

    Are people/the media saying that protestors murdered them?
