  1. I was a little cynical to begin with, seems all so convenient the killer being dead so case closed, perfect for the BiB. But then I realised two of the victims were American citizens and as such FBI agents attached to the US Embassy were also involved in the investigation adding a certain degree of credibility to the findings
  2. At 53 I wouldn’t of called Shannen Doherty old
  3. Cyanide has been found in the blood of all six Linkpeople who died in a luxury hotel suite in Bangkok, say doctors after examining their bodies. Based on the initial post-mortem examination, they say there is "no other cause" that would explain their deaths "except for cyanide". But they are doing further tests to determine the "intensity" of the deadly chemical and to rule out any other toxins. Forensic investigators had earlier found traces of cyanide on the teacups used by the victims, all of them of Vietnamese origin. Police suspect that one of the dead was behind the poisoning and was driven by crushing debt. The victims' lips and nails had turned dark purple indicating a lack of oxygen, while their internal organs turned "blood red", which is another sign of cyanide poisoning, said Professor Kornkiat Vongpaisarnsin of the Department of Forensic Medicine at Chulalongkorn University. Doctor Chanchai Sittipunt, the dean of the Faculty of Medicine, said they still needed to find out how much cyanide was in the blood of the deceased. "But from what we have detected - from observation, from internal organ check, from finding cyanide in the blood during the screening test - there is no other cause that would be the factor that would cause their deaths, except for cyanide,” he told reporters. The deceased were found by housekeepers at the Grand Hyatt Erawan hotel in the Thai capital late on Tuesday. Investigators believe they had been dead for between 12 and 24 hours by then. The mystery around the shocking discovery made international headlines. Thailand's Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin ordered an urgent investigation into the case, stressing that the deaths were the result of a "private matter", and there was no suggestion of public danger. Police have since begun to piece together what might have happened. Two of the six victims had loaned "tens of millions of Thai baht" to another of the deceased for investment purposes, authorities said. Ten million baht is worth nearly $280,000 (£215,000). Earlier on Wednesday, Deputy Bangkok police chief Gen Noppassin Poonsawat told a press conference the group checked into the hotel separately over the weekend and were assigned five rooms - four on the seventh floor, and one on the fifth. They had been scheduled to check out on Monday but failed to do so. Four of the victims are Vietnamese nationals Thi Nguyen Phuong, 46, her husband Hong Pham Thanh, 49, Thi Nguyen Phuong Lan, 47, and Dinh Tran Phu, 37. The other two are American citizens Sherine Chong, 56, and Dang Hung Van, 55. The US state department has offered its condolences and said it is "closely monitoring" the situation. The US Federal Bureau of Investigation is assisting Thai authorities in the investigation, Mr Srettha said. Link
  4. A father walks into a restaurant with his young son. He gives the young boy 3 x 5c coins to play with to keep him occupied. Suddenly, the boy starts choking, going blue in the face. The father realises the boy has swallowed the coins and starts slapping him on the back. The boy coughs up two of the coins, but keeps choking. Looking at his son, the father is panicking, shouting for help. A well dressed, attractive, and serious looking woman, in a blue business suit is sitting at a coffee bar reading a newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee. At the sound of the commotion, she looks up, puts her coffee cup down, neatly folds the newspaper and places it on the counter, gets up from her seat and makes her way, unhurried, across the restaurant. Reaching the boy, the woman carefully drops his pants, takes hold of the boy's testicles and starts to squeeze and twist, gently at first and then ever so firmly. After a few seconds the boy convulses violently and coughs up the last coin, which the woman deftly catches in her free hand. Releasing the boy's testicles, the woman hands the coin to the father and walks back to her seat at the coffee bar without saying a word. As soon as he is sure that his son has suffered no ill effects, the father rushes over to the woman and starts thanking her saying, "I've never seen anybody do anything like that before, it was fantastic. Are you a doctor?" "No,” the woman replied. "I work for the Australian Taxation Office."
  5. Nearly 40 years, been mates since 1986. I have read some stories online and Jack Black can go fuck himself as far as I am concerned, really gone down in my estimations
  6. Still sketchy details in TV but 6 Vietnamese tourists found dead in their rooms in Grand Hyatt Erawan Unconfirmed reports of shooting, others of suspicious substances
  7. Saw a funny reply to an American question online Q. I am only 20 years old, how do I get a bottle of wine? A. Buy a gun and hold up a liquor store
  8. Poor Kyle getting misunderstood, all he said was he wants to be at (not miss) Trumps next rally haha.
  9. But Biden isn’t guilty of anything, just the other day the Republican selected Supreme Court judges ruled that an President has immunity, surely this rule also applies to Democrats as well as Republicans
  10. It’s quite funny, in other forums I am seeing comments like “Since the shooter once made a donation to the Democrats, shouldn’t Biden be prosecuted for calling for the assasination of an opponent only to see the poster shut down with Oh, come on. The Supreme Court just said that whatever a President does in office is perfectly legal.
  11. Well, my conspiracy theory is gathering pace, reports coming out now say that he wasn’t hit by a bullet but by glass fragments from a teleprompter https://www.oneindia.com/international/reports-claim-donald-trump-was-hit-by-glass-not-bullet-haters-call-shooting-photo-op-3878289.html
  12. Well according to reports the shooter Mathew Crooks was a registered republican Item 1
  13. Reminds of this I posted a few months back
  14. Wouldn’t be surprised it the shooter was a MAGAt and it was all a set up
