I really liked the Trump response to one of those women the Hillary campaign dredged up to accuse him of sexual harassment or assault. One of them painted a picture of him ogling her standing at the bar from a table across a dark, smoky room. You can imagine little red lamps on every table. Then he apparently made his approach. Trump's response to this accusation was vintage Trump - didn't happen because I have never been to a bar alone. I think anyone who didn't viscerally despise Trump thought yeah, actually, I buy that.

It seems the BM is so desperate for bad-news stories that they keep making big bad cycles out of West coast/Indian Ocean summer lows.
If one wants the truth before or during a storm use the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) in Hawaii. It's a military organization whose first priority is protecting military assets from effects of storms so they do it right. However, under the Obama administration they got caught modifying the numbers after the fact for political purposes. Website screen shots don't lie.

Via Instapundit: Indictment: Americans Lured to Trump, Hillary Rallies by Russian Operatives in Elaborate Ruse
One of the revelations contained within the indictment is that Russian operatives allegedly posed as Americans on social media to organize events for then-candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, beginning as early as 2014—and that Americans both attended and helped to organize the rallies. According to the indictment, Russian operatives hoped to "interfere with U.S. political and electoral processes, including the 2016 U.S. presidential election."
How ?
"For example, Defendants and their co-conspirators asked one U.S. person to build a cage on a flatbed truck and another U.S. person to wear a costume portraying Clinton in a prison uniform," according to the indictment. "Defendants and their co-conspirators paid these individuals to complete the requests."
You are shitting me ! This was supposed to reduce the US to paralysis ?
In September 2016, the operatives organized a rally in Pennsylvania called “Miners for Trump,” scheduled for October 2, 2016. The indictment highlights several other examples of Russia-organized rallies in the months leading up to the election.
And ..? So far, from what I have read - this Russian op reads more like some Putin public service troughers trying to justify their Russki taxpayer funded existence by making up shit.

I can hardly wait to see the museum.
Make sure you carry fresh bottled water. It can be very hot in the Museum of Antiquities. And if your tour allows for it, buy a gold cartouche from a reputable outlet. You can have your name engraved in hieroglyphics on it, and it will be ready same day.

Holy shit. Seems like Philip Seymour Hoffman played a masculine Capote.

Remember when 68cm TVs were a big deal? (And when did we switch from metric when sizing TV screens?) Of course, LEDs scale up much more practically than tubes. Prior to flatscreens, rear projection TVs were the shit. They were bloody enormous, though - the size of an upright piano or bigger, and not a lot lighter, either. Sometimes you still see them in offices or in the ballroom of a past-it hotel, probably hooked up to a VCR. Main reason it's still there is because it's too big for anyone to bother getting rid of it. Actually, you more often see these old dinosaurs on the sides of roads during bulk rubbish collection periods. This, too, is the fate of your $30,000 TV. Old high spec hi-fi equipment retains a certain charm, even when it's as old as your dad. And it remains useful - old amps, speakers, record and tape players that might have been really expensive new still work just fine today. Many brands retain their value quite well, in fact. But an old TV is just an old TV. You eventually have to give it away if you don't want to chuck it out.
