    Good Morning.

    Is this really our future? Some evil stuff here.

    Authors of ‘The transHuman Code’ and ‘Artificial Humanity‘ to host the introduction of
    ‘The Code to the Metaverse – Programming Our Future For Good’ at The Vatican, Rome

    From below: Denise, the reports are saying that Baldwin was ‘performing’ at the time of the shooting, but who knows what really happened?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Wouldn’t it still be manslaughter ?

      • Miranda says:

        I wouldn’t think so. I agree with the lawyer that the negligent charge should be on the prop director. From all I can tell at this point, Baldwin acted in perfectly good faith that the prop was safe.

      • Constance says:

        Why would an actor ever point a gun at the director? I think Alex murdered the director and is going to try to blame it on the prop manager. Why would real bullets ever be on a movie set?

    • elliesmom says:

      The legal questions that must be answered about Baldwin’s culpability. Andrew Branca does a good job of differentiating between accident, civil negligence, and involuntary manslaughter. (He, too, talks about the rumor I commented on last night about Baldwin pointing the gun at the cinematographer deliberately.)

      • DeniseVB says:

        Very interesting differences. I’m sure Alec is hoping for the best outcome in this tragic situation. To be honest, I do not like him, I hope he gets the chair 😛 Of course Twitter is divided with people like me and those who want us to leave Alec alone, he did nothing wrong……… everybody’s a prosecutor or defense attorney this morning 😀

        • Mothy67 says:

          I never “got” him. There are lots of celebs I loathe because of politics but cannot deny talent. Mostly women. Is that a form of sexism on my part? I can accept a woman. Going overboard emotionally, but when a dude like Baldwin or De Nero does it I think what a little bitch. Bobby was so over the top with his histrionics during Trump that I can’t even watch his older movies.

          • AniEm says:

            I threw away all Streisand CDs for the same reason.
            Looks like Baldwin is in CYA mode because of impending lawsuits. He blames one of his minions rather than accept consequences of his own stupid (and hostile) behavior.

          • Constance says:

            I only liked Alex because he was good looking when he was young. Now he looks like an old fat slob with a big mouth so I’ve lost interested. I never considered Alex talented. Now Val Kilmer was a Gorgeous man when he was young, didn’t age well, and I still love him.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I liked Beetlejuice Baldwin but as he got older and angrier his characters seemed to be based on hate/politics. His Trump impersonation was a hit piece and a caricature of Baby Huey does Trump. Compared to Darrell Hammond’s great work, and he got fired and replaced by Baldwin. Hate comedy is never funny.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          I like Beetlejuice but it was a while before I realized he played the husband. I am not sure I have even even seen another movie with him.

          I did see him as the guest co-host on the essentials with Bob Osborne for a couple years and I actually thought he was one of the best. Came prepared, could form sentences and hold a coherent discussion (some of the guest hosts did a lot “ahas”, ‘ummmmms” “yeaaaaa” and “like you knows”) and worked well with Bob.

          As I recall this was right before the really strange behaviors started to garner attention such as his not so loving voice messages and the notes on the fridge.

          its as if the part of him with a decent level of talent and intelligence gave in to and devolved to the base level of his other half.

          Did he not marry the weird woman that pretends to be Spanish?

          And yes, if he had pointed the gun at the wall and hot someone who moved un-expectantly into the frame it would make more sense. But that still does not get around real bullets. And as even the faux bullets can cause harm most actors would know not to aim them at someone at random.

      • lateblum says:

        Maybe Baldwin was taking himself too literally . . .

    • DandyTIger says:

      Baldwin didn’t follow safety protocols. He aimed a gun, that according to protocols you have to assume is loaded, and fired it. Basic safety regulations here means he acted with no regard to the safety of the person he killed. At best he should be guilty of of something related to accidentally killing someone. If the AD that may have improperly set up and loaded the gun was not trained, but instead was made to perform that duty without training because all the safety crew left, directly because of Baldwin’s lack of following safety regulations, then that should be taken into account. There is responsibility no matter what, but if you’re forced to do something you can’t do by fear of being fired, hard to lay it all on that person.

      • elliesmom says:

        Baldwin is the producer for the movie so in that capacity “the shit rolls uphill, too.” If the prop guy wasn’t properly trained, then that’s on Baldwin, too

        • Mothy67 says:

          I’ve seen it reported the armorer(?) was a temp. The regular crew had shown up and were sent away. Also read the actor is to check weapons as the last person. Would he even know what a blank looked like?

  4. DeniseVB says:

    Yikes !

    • Gram Krakka says:

      That crap meets the definition of “better living through chemistry”. NOT!

      Years ago the company I worked for developed a ground beef substitute based on soy beans. It was bitter tasting and caused bloating. Humans then expelled a lot of methane instead of the beef cattle.
      LOL

      Beans / legumes can be difficult for humans to digest and are great fart fodder.

    • Mothy67 says:

      Shay was a vegetarian from about age 3 until last year when she decided she really wanted a steak. Her body was probably demanding it. It is so hard to feed a picky kid with fake meat. Making food enjoyable and not a chore. Lots of vegan stuff is loaded with salt. Complete protein? Cults sometimes provide low protein diets. I read it makes people more maleable. Something the dims love- sheep. There’s also cost. Good vegan ( burgers, chicken, bacon, hotdogs, oat milk, soy) are not cheap.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        She is at an age where her body indeed may have told her it needed iron (and perhaps vitamin B12 and magnesium). Those pesky little periods deplete the supply.

        Large portabella mushrooms make a far better substitute for real burgers. Also can use breaded eggplant slices they also pair well with the greens, tomatoes and onions.

        • DeniseVB says:

          A grilled portabella cap tastes better than a real meat burger. Of course I use the same condiments, but really no difference for my taste buds 🙂

      • jadzia1971 says:

        Not that anybody asked, but I have two good vegan (or mostly vegan) cookbooks to recommend: Thug Kitchen (and yes I think it’s r * c * st but I bought the book before I knew that the authors were a couple of Hollywood hipsters, though tbh it wasn’t a big shock–but the recipes are GREAT and that’s where I learned how to make tofu that even carnivores love) and The Happy Pear (also, the hot twin authors who love to take shirtless pictures of themselves justify the cost; that said, it is also an excellent cookbook that we use all the time).

    • jadzia1971 says:

      Tofu can be delicious, but at least in my kitchen it takes about 8 hours to make it that way. No fakin’ bacon for me, thanks.

  5. elliesmom says:

    I noticed the series “Turn” has made it to Netflix. It’s the story of Washington’s Culper spy ring. It’s not done as a documentary. It’s a drama series. If you find yourself on Long Island, you can visit the sites and also learn about the man who dug up the evidence of the existence of the ring in the 1920s. It’s a good watch. Several seasons. Because the story is not well-known, you may know who won the war before you start watching, but not what happens to the spies. 🙂

    • 1539days says:

      Actually, the Culper Ring was unknown until the 1930’s when some papers were found because one of the members was keeping notes to get paid later. It’s been on Netflix for a while, though.

      • elliesmom says:

        I usually only turn Netflix on for the summer when the grandkids are here. When I said something about only having it then, I got “adopted” so it reappeared. 😉

      The Cheney accident is not uncommon.

      Long before that happened, a friend’s Dad described the same thing happening among people he knew.

      When a pheasant or quail goes up, it’s very startling. Your focus narrows onto the bird as you bring the shotgun up to fire at it. When your aim is on it, you fire.

      The problem occurs when the bird flies between you & your buddies, who are typically strung out in a line walking through the field.

      “Target fixation” is when you’re so focused on one thing that you’re unaware of other things.

      I learned that in traffic school.

      I had been riding my motorcycle up a street with a median to go to a store on my left, so I had to make a U-turn at the light to get to it. As I approached the intersection, the light was turning yellow, but I thought I could make it. A cop car was waiting at that light.
      I looked at the light; I looked at the cop.
      Yeah, I can make it.
      After making the U-turn & pulling into a parking spot, the cop pulled in next to me & asked for my license/registration.
      “Do you know what you did wrong?”
      “What? I made the light before it turned red!”
      He turned me toward the intersection, pointed, & said, “There are, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 signs that say, ‘NO U-TURN'”
      i was so focused on the light & the cop that I didn’t see a one.
      Target fixation.

    A lot of stuff I read about smoking or am lectured by docs I ignore. I know the harmful effects. I don’t/didn’t need any more pressure. Well my two hours after eating a light carb meal and a 20 minute walk my glucose was 103. I smoked a cigarette. 117. I tested it 3 times. Each time after a smoke it increased by 14. A1c in hospital was 11.5 which is an average glucose of 283 over 3 months. I brought down my numbers by 180. They went down to around 200 in hospital and since Monday all I’ve done is cut out bleached flour and walk 6 miles a day in three different jaunts. Not even strenuous walking. A flat road. Me pancreas is not a fan of nicotine or booze.

        She did an hour long interview with Tucker Carlson and blew him away. Definitely not the flake the media portrays. She has challenged AOC to a debate anywhere AOC chooses. Tucker offered his show, but while MTG has the guts to meet AOC on CNN, AOC won’t step foot on Tucker’s set.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I loved when she joked she was happy to be thrown off the committees so she didn’t have to listen to those gasbags. They are trying to destroy her and it’s not working. 😀

    Small crowds for the Dems just like Biden. If the Dems didn’t master how to cheat elections, their party would no longer exist. Too bad the GOP is fine with massive cheating that will eventually make the GOP no longer exist.

    • DeniseVB says:

      With only 2 states to watch next month, do you think they dare try? Of course the “pollsters” have them in a dead heat right now, and McAwful is the former gov. LoL.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Of course they will. They really need Virginia and northern Virginia is where they can cheat with no problem. That along with a few areas like Charlottesville and the other woke spokes.

        They also cannot afford anyone showing resistance in the northeast corridor. It’s easier to cover there as most assume it’s is D heaven.

      Sharyl Attkisson said there are people who want to invest in media to counter the Democrat propagandists and Democrat Big Tech Oligarchs. She gave a four-year timeline for it. Did we expect these assholes to let Trump create a media enterprise in peace? FJB, no!

      Sounds like they want to combat big tech, I wouldn’t worry at this point unless they’re torturing beagles. 🙂

    Thank you all.
    She’s a good kid. Give a lot of credit to starting her early in ballet and tae kwon do. She’s very disciplined which I did not instill. The dress was, I believe, a little bit of an FU to the mean girls. Three families and their satellites try and run everything. None of them ever leave. It’s their borough according to them. The parents expect deference. Twins are very good swimmers. Shay is just better. Some blatant resentment. She won the art competition which was blind. Lots of complaining she gets too much. She is at the pool an hour before school starts.

    DeSantis for president, Trump for speaker of the house, Jorden or Paul for vice president.
    can you picture the changes for the good of the country that would be made?
    Trump as speaker would be awesome can you just see him handling the dems? I would pay to watch it. All 4 have real backbones, not wet noodles in that place.

    • jadzia1971 says:

      This is kind of misleading and kind of not. Basically, there are far fewer charities here than in the US. Why? At least in part because Western Europe is basically a bunch of socialist-lite countries with gazillions of benefits for people (great if you’re on the “getting” side, not so great if you’re a producer). Essentially, everybody here “gives” through the higher tax rates. And there is definitely a mentality that if there is a human need, it’s the government’s responsibility to take care of the person, it’s not my responsibility to give and help out.

      People here have really been trained to have the government take care of all kinds of things that would otherwise be within the wheelhouse of either charity or personal responsibility. I especially see this in medical care ALL THE TIME–people whining and/or going without (even if they can afford it) a doctor’s visit because they don’t want to pay a 25-euro co-pay that gets reimbursed eventually anyway, same thing with (very reasonably priced) medications. I think their collective decision to let the government into so many areas of life kind of killed any culture of philanthropy that might have existed in the past. But it’s not really because people here are selfish–most of them aren’t. They’ve just been indoctrinated.

    • jadzia1971 says:

      I will also say that this article focuses exclusively on monetary donations. In my ten years here, I’ve found that although French people certainly don’t make monetary contributions the way Americans do, there is a culture of volunteerism amongst pretty much everybody (not just house-spouses or the retired) that is far more active and extensive than I saw in the US. My town has only 3000 people and we have close to 50 “associations” that do everything from semi-annual cleanups of the banks of the Loire to dance lessons for local kids to selling wine and beer on the side of the road when the Paris-Tours bike race comes through every year. That stuff is all volunteer-driven and it’s all grassroots and I’m about the only misanthrope I know who doesn’t participate (yet).

      This lady’s life is never going to be the same and STILL she’s saying oh yeah, everybody should go out and get the injection? No thank you.

      So in real life here most of the vaccinated have mellowed out to the point that they just tease me and the H-man for our continued stubbornness. I notice that they have not turned down any of our invitations. Once the boosters roll out I’m guessing half of them will join us on the plague-rate side.

    • lateblum says:

      Only yesterday the family celebrated grandgirlie #1’s 11th birthday with a lunch get-together. Her real bday is the 30th but that is the day of trick or treating here this year. So they held her party yesterday. Yesterday morning I rec’d a text from son saying that the “governor has recommended” that all unvaccinated people attending indoor gatherings wear masks. And then asked if I had reconsidered getting the vaccine. So I responded that I had indeed reconsidered getting the vaccine. And that I found the vaccine as unsafe *for me* as I had before. So I would remain unvaccinated until there was proof neither I nor others would suffer significant side effects from it. I also (and for the first time) said that if I were the mother of young children – if he and his siblings were youngsters now, I would not have them vaccinated either. And for similar reasons. I also added that since children have a nearly 99.99% survival rate, I found vaccines for children questionable if not dangerous.

      *Actually, the governor has said attendees in all indoor public gatherings should be masked whether vaccinated or not. Honest to goodness how truly stupid do they think I am???
