I said it before and I'll say it again. $1 for an issue of "class" without opening a page and seeing flying pens everywhere is totally worth it.

When Playboy went down in size and cut back on articles, I stopped renewing my subscription. Jonwin wasn't able to look at the photos until Ii had read most of it.

We had a discussion before how people prefer the hardcore magazines over softcore. When you flip pages in a hardcore mag, you don't know what you'll see next. There are some positions, poses, etc. that I don't want to see. I don't have that issue with Playboy.

So I was asleep for about 35 hours consecutively over the weekend and had a whole lot of really weird dreams. Among them was this one where Donald Trump lost the primaries to someone (some very typical Republican candidate who's name was not known to me), and immediately picked up as a third party candidate, resulting in 27% of the popular vote for himself in 2016, leaving only 30% of the vote for the other guy and 43% for Clinton/Sanders who had decided to go as running mates. In the dream I was reading about it all here which seems to happen frequently.

I wish we could link images kind of the way every other forum works.

(For those of who don't understand Spanish-- it's a parody of a scene from the Simpsons where Duff attempts to sell non-alcoholic beer saying "people buy it for it's robust taste" and go out of business in 30 minutes-- in this case, Playboy tries to sell magazines without nudes saying "people buy it for it's beautiful models" and it goes out of business in 30 minutes but you can probably gather that without actually reading any of it.)

I'm not sure of the details of Playboy's move, but wouldn't it make more sense to make the change to the paper magazine as planned, but allow anyone with a subscription to automatically be subscribed to say online content, where they could make nudes available. My understanding is that one of their drivers for this is that with all the **** available online, no one's willing to pay for a magazine subscription to see naked pictures of women, but the fact that they have nudity in their magazine relegates it to "behind the counter" status, which hurts sales for those who might want to actually read articles within.

Seems like if they just shifted their adult content to their website, and granted free access to those with subscriptions to the magazine, they could basically have the best of both worlds. Those who buy the magazine can choose to do so for reasons other than looking at nude pictures if they want (or just pretend to be doing so), and they can potentially expand the customer base for the magazine by not limiting themselves to those willing to purchase an adult magazine, but without reducing the "adult" side of the business for those who want it.

Dunno. Maybe this is exactly how it does work. Not like I have a subscription to the magazine, or have a clue what sort of website they may have. Just seems like a sensible solution.

Fox News "Terrorism & Intelligence Expert" arrested by the FBI for, well, making it all up. That and trying to use his fraudulent experience to gain security clearances, etc. Oh, and a real estate scam.
FBI.gov wrote:
Wayne Shelby Simmons, 62, of Annapolis, Maryland, a former occasional on-air commentator who appeared on a cable news network, was arrested today after being indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of major fraud against the United States, wire fraud, and making false statements to the government.

According to the indictment, Simmons falsely claimed he worked as an “Outside Paramilitary Special Operations Officer” for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from 1973 to 2000, and used that false claim in an attempt to obtain government security clearances and work as a defense contractor, including at one point successfully getting deployed overseas as an intelligence advisor to senior military personnel. According to the indictment, Simmons also falsely claimed on national security forms that his prior arrests and criminal convictions were directly related to his supposed intelligence work for the CIA, and that he had previously held a top secret security clearance. The indictment also alleges that Simmons defrauded an individual victim out of approximately $125,000 in connection with a bogus real estate investment.
[...]
If convicted, Simmons faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison on the wire fraud counts, 10 years in prison on the major fraud against the U.S. counts, and five years in prison on the false statements count.

Well, that tells me that Fox doesn't spend a lot of resources on background checks. If I'm ever convicted of a felony and need a job when I get out, I'll certainly keep that in mind.

Or, well... the US government? It's funny to me how the focus of this story in the media is on how Fox News should have vetted him better, while somewhat downplaying the fact that he's not being charged for "making stuff up on TV". He's being charged for falsifying information while working for various government agencies. Perhaps the focus should be on that part of it?

I'm mean, it's not like this guy claimed to have come under fire while flying into Bosnia, or that an attack on an embassy building was the result of a video, or filed exit documentation asserting that she'd turned over all classified documents related to his work at the State Department, only to have kept them on his email server at home. Because those would be really serious, right?

It looks as though he only "worked for" the government as an independent contractor through third party agencies. He was charged with numerous attempts to falsify records while trying to obtain work/clearances which, given that he is currently under arrest and facing up to 35 years in prison, would suggest that the government did in fact do some background checking.

He was happy to give his "expert opinion" on all those things though Smiley: laugh

Your knee-jerk defense of Fox News is noted, however.
