Wasn't there also some inept IRL doxxing/doorstepping that led to harassing calls to someone's parent?

Every word of this post following this sentence is by Roger.

My Girl Friday, Part 12

Detective Jaxx Josh sat at his desk and read the file, softly cursing under his breath. Ever since he moved here from Chicago, the department had dumped all the really WEIRD stuff on him. His last case was a man who murdered his wife with a vacuum cleaner. Now it was a private investigator wanted for torching the oldest church in the western hemisphere, killing something like 30 people.

30 people, you’d think a task force would be formed. You’d think there’d be FBI involved, all that stuff. Instead, Jaxx’s Lieutenant just slid the file across the desk and went back to picking at the track marks on his arm.

He called down to the desk sergeant. “What do we know about this Hamish Howl guy?”

“Not too much. The one guy who really knew him was Sergeant Ahmad…You know, the sergeant who was killed at the front desk? Also, he was present when Wilson killed himself.”

“I am beginning to see a pattern, here.”

“Well, that’s the funny part. We have witnesses that swear up and down that Wilson did himself without any help, and that it was just as much a shock to Howl and his partner as it was to the bartender.”

“This partner…?”

“Pretty girl, young thing, call her about 25 or so. You never see one without the other. They keep an office on Congress. From what I gather, they mostly do divorce cases and the occasional missing persons thing.”

“Thanks.” Jaxx hung up the phone. Then he stared at it a minute. Picking it back up, he dialed the operator.

“Operator”, came the bored voice of a woman, “How can I help you.”

“I need the address of one “Hamish Howl”. He’s on congress street, but I don’t know the exact address.”

“The address you are requesting is 105B Congress Avenue, Tucson.”

“Thank you.”

“You’re going to die, detective.” A wash of static.

“What?”

“I said you’re very welcome, sir.”

“Oh, yes. Okay.” Jaxx hung the phone up again and stared at it for a moment. Then he got his jacket on and walked over to Congress Avenue. Reaching 105, he opened the door and followed the stairs up, moving as quietly as he could. Reaching unit B, he stopped, hearing voices on the other side of the door. He put his ear to the door to listen.

A man’s voice was speaking. “So, these ‘maintenance programs’, they’re all the jobs nobody would want to do for a living…But have to be filled because the world wouldn’t look right without them?”

A female voice said something too quietly for Jaxx to understand. Another female voice spoke. “And all preachers or other influential people are actually just these programs?” More muttering.

At that point, Jaxx felt the barrel of a pistol push against the back of his neck.

“Well”, another female voice said, “what do we have here?”

First flounce over. Can't stay away from this f'kin place.

Wait, you flounced?

I think also putting image tags around NSFW pictures, rather than providing links and a NSFW note.

Mood is much more important than a lot of people realize.  I dunno what needs to be done other than medication, but if it isn't more than a few more trips to the doc/pharmacy, I'd suggest you act on that now.

Where were the gay porn panels and workshops?


Tumblr is for gay porn, isn't it?

Although that does make the "ball pit" more interesting.

This is true. And it's why there was the "Knights of the Five-Sided Castle" division in the original PD, for actors in the Greyface Beurocracy.

Is it common for UK guy to go shirtless? In Ireland even in the warmest of summers you wouldn't see guys walking through a town without a shirt on

I saw a shirtless woman in Portland the other day. When it's oppressive heat versus prudishness...

I was here with my parasol, sun dress and lace gloves when shirtless man passed by and I nearly passed out from shock.

 :lol:

Thursday and Friday from about 5 pm in the town here seems to be an open air drinkfest. Is it legal to drink out doors here?

I think you need to start a journal in an anthropological tone.

"Day 3: Many of the indigenous males travel in packs, abandoning their mate-signaling plumage while engaging in ritual acts of chemical ignorance."
It will start like that and descend into a HP lovecraft narrator tone.

YESYESYESYESYES

The Potato Salad Guy is Zach "Danger" Brown, and he's the co-founder of Base Two, a digital creative marketing firm.

http://www.base2.io/

So I don't think he's desperate for money.

But, as I did some research on the guy, he is organizing a benefit concert, and is using local businesses in order to boost the local economy.

So, current assessment: Not a dick.

I'd use the quote fucntion, but I think the thread is locked due to it being an old Open Bar thread.

Basically, he made a joke kickstarter for $10.  He now has $50k that he didn't ask for.

There are literally hundreds of worthy causes that deserve funding, but don't get it, because a lot of people find it funnier to overfund the potato salad kickstarter.  To some foundations and charities, $50k would be a godsend.  In addition, publicly announcing the charity he donates it to would bring awareness to that charity, and maybe interest a few of the thousand or so people who are watching this go down.

Sure, he has every right to keep the money for himself, but I feel it would be selfish to do so; hence, I consider that option to be a dick move.

It's probably the same paper quality as the et cetera was.  Which isn't bad, but it's already starting to yellow a bit.
