News of the news @ 01:25 pm

Y'know that kid they found who'd been kidnapped for four years? Sylvia Browne told his parents he was dead. We all know how caring she is for families in need, so she only asked for $700/half-hour to help find the body out in the woods. Apparently, "Browne's 'vision' of his death caused search teams to redirect their efforts and drew dozens of calls from the public who believed they lived near the woods matching Browne's descriptions."
And let's hope the parents just moved on and got over their son's death four year's ago. I mean, can you imagine how much worrying they would have done over all that time, and how they would have kept hounding the police to keep looking?

Hooters. I could deal with their puerile restaurant and their failed airline, but now they've gone too far. Briefly, anyway.

Brilliant 'trailer' for the 60's Casino Royale, recut as a straight (?) Bond picture.

World's first test-tube baby has a baby of her own. The usual way.

I don't know... including the sea lion tips the movie's hand a bit...

I must admit that, as much as I enjoyed the new Casino Royale, there was at least one climactic scene where I had to fight to suppress giggles because I couldn't get the original out of my head. It's amazing how camp stays with you.

Oh, and you should ask crboltz about his experiences at Hooters Hotel in Las Vegas sometime.

This post reminds me of how much I LOVE Sylvia Brown.

From the news article:
Michael Devlin, the 300-pound pizza parlor manager charged with kidnapping Shawn four years ago and a second boy just last week, is to be arraigned today in Missouri courtroom.

That's more disturbing. Shades of He Who Must Not Be Named (for fear his bots will ping again).

Drama fairies shed their drama dust

Why did you have to allude to him? I then felt compelled to read his LJ:

"As far as rejection goes... I know how that feels, too. I've been rejected more than I can possibly communicate to you. People have odd notions of what they find acceptable in companions, whether they be partners in friendship or romance. I can't tell you how many times I've heard that I'm a great guy, and how much the woman in question likes (or even loves) me but not "in that way," to which I always want to reply, "How do you know if you won't give it a chance?""

Women are so evil and duplicitous; they are obviously using one of the less common (but most appopriate) definitions of the word 'great', and they are self-confessedly using 'like' and 'love' in non-standard ways.
