    money is whatever a merchant accepts as tender

    court rules and laws don’t get to decide what is acceptable as tender; only what is legal tender as to what a merchant is not allowed to refuse

    I live in the American Gardens Building on W. 81st Street on the 11th floor. My name is Patrick Bateman. I'm 27 years old. I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I'll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.

    “My department had gone out to dinner prior to the party, compliments of [Westcott]. We were at the party and I don’t think I’d been there for more than an hour or so when Kevin [Connolly] approached me and asked if I’d go with him for a smoke,” recalls Cox

    By that point in the evening, she says she was a bit tipsy. “I didn’t smoke but didn’t want to seem rude. This was the first social setting I’d been in with him, other than being on set. He led me down a hall to what I guess was the VIP lounge area. As soon as we were alone in that area, he started to kiss me. I didn’t know how to respond—but before I could even think about what to do about it, he pulled me into one of these little side [booths], and pulled down my pants, and turned me around, and within no time was inside of me. I was just in shock [...]There was not really a chance in my mind to object or resist. It just happened really fast. I froze and was in shock. Nothing like that had ever happened to me before in any way, shape or form. I was completely caught off-guard.”

    She says Connolly came—he was not wearing a condom—and then did something she’ll “never forget.”

    “He took a pillow off of a couch, threw it at me, and told me to ‘clean myself up.’ He then told me that he was going to leave and to wait a few minutes, because he didn’t want anyone to see us together,” she says.

    Germany seizes server hosting pilfered US police files

    That’s a really well-written piece

    there’s a definite neural process called “speciation” which in part is a result of learned behavior, yes but which is nevertheless neurological and incorrectly in the mind of an individual classifies other people as members of a different species based on differences in creed or ethnicity in general

    whether that’s a disorder or not I cannot comment but it is well understood and studied and that knowledge should result in some sort of legislation against people evoking or irritating the phenomenon as it clearly results in systemic problems that actively harm people; problems which can and should be avoided

    however, such a thing would not only spell the end of hate news for profit and social media advertising but would also lead down a slippery slope for corporate marketing in general and organized religion peddlers too so I suspect it would be viciously opposed (perhaps ironically, by appealing to the very same neurological mechanisms)

    i was going to comment: isn't data collection service in disguise the very definition of all social media "platforms"?

    long and short of it is that, sadly, given factional political agendas, we will never conclusively know or even be able to obtain data from excavating the historically most likely site that contains the record
