CAM GIRLZ (Full feature length documentary on Vimeo Video)
Dan Lyke:

CAM GIRLZ (Full feature length documentary on Vimeo Video), a video about webcam "girls" (women), and their performance.

(And unlike some other exploitation stuff recently, this was shot with the consent and cooperation of the subjects.)







Proposed Palmaz helicopter pad inflames Napa Valley's winery wars
Dan Lyke:

Occasionally I hang out with transportation geeks, and a topic that comes up regularly is "what about flying cars?" I mean, yeah, it's a bit fanciful, but in the 50 year timespan it's something people think meaningfully about.

The truth is: Flying cars are already here. The future just isn't evenly distributed. And when you try to bring them into a neighborhood, people get pissed off.

The SD card in my phone died yesterday, which meant that I lost a pic of the best vanity plate ever: "KEGELIT"




In heyday of LSD, secret Windsor lab produced millions of Orange Sunshine pills

In heyday of LSD, secret Windsor lab produced millions of Orange Sunshine pills. A little bit on the history of LSD manufacturing in Sonoma County...

Scully figured they needed to produce 440 pounds — about 720 million doses of LSD — roughly enough to provide a single dose for everyone in the world willing to try it.




The YouTube video of Mayor Landrieu's address
Dan Lyke:

Transcript of New Orleans Mayor Landrieu’s address on Confederate monuments.

The YouTube video of Mayor Landrieu's address, with transcript in the comments there.

Another friend asked me to consider these four monuments from the perspective of an African American mother or father trying to explain to their fifth grade daughter who Robert E. Lee is and why he stands atop of our beautiful city. Can you do it?

Can you look into that young girl’s eyes and convince her that Robert E. Lee is there to encourage her? Do you think she will feel inspired and hopeful by that story? Do these monuments help her see a future with limitless potential? Have you ever thought that if her potential is limited, yours and mine are too?

* Japan's sex problem is so bad that people are quitting dating and marrying their friends:

The country has one of the lowest birth rates in the world, with just 8.4 children being born per 1,000 inhabitants over the past five years.

Its population of 127 million people is predicted to decrease to 87 million by 2060.

Why locking your bike on your rack when it's on a car is a good idea (has a happy ending, though).

House majority leader to colleagues in 2016: ‘I think Putin pays’ Trump
Dan Lyke:

House majority leader to colleagues in 2016: ‘I think Putin pays’ Trump:

When initially asked to comment on the exchange, Brendan Buck, a spokesman for Ryan, said: “That never happened,” and Matt Sparks, a spokesman for McCarthy, said: “The idea that McCarthy would assert this is absurd and false.”

After being told that The Post would cite a recording of the exchange, Buck, speaking for the GOP House leadership, said: “This entire year-old exchange was clearly an attempt at humor. No one believed the majority leader was seriously asserting that Donald Trump or any of our members were being paid by the Russians. What’s more, the speaker and leadership team have repeatedly spoken out against Russia’s interference in our election, and the House continues to investigate that activity.”




WaPo: Notes made by former FBI Director Comey say Trump pressured him to end Flynn probe
Dan Lyke:

Comey kept a paper trail... NYT: Trump asked Comey to end the Flynn & Russia investigation.

After the meeting, Mr. Comey’s associates did not believe there was any way to corroborate Mr. Trump’s statements. But Mr. Trump’s suggestion last week that he was keeping tapes has made them wonder whether there are tapes that back up Mr. Comey’s account.
