I get that nerdy Bezos has to pay his way to be Ray Ban Space cool but is he taking the Dutch kid just to cover the costs for his Karman Line shaming stunt? cnbc.com/2021/07/20/jef…
2016: After they got bored on their expedition yachts, everybody decided to head into space. cnbc.com/2016/09/23/8-i…
It's hard to take selfies underwater. But this was the billionaire thing before space. bbc.com/worklife/artic…
Before that it was Everest and the Poles. outsideonline.com/magazine-issue…
I am OK with billionaires mixing expedition yachts with ecological awareness, even space sats with recording human rights abuses. Its all just rich people trying to be relevant. Rev Ocean knocks MBz's yacht into the dirt. revocean.org

"The case against Barrack is a reminder of how deeply foreign interests penetrated Trump’s inner circle. Michael Flynn... admitted to working on Turkey’s behalf... Paul Manafort and Rick Gates...confessed to acting as unregistered lobbyists for Ukraine." latimes.com/politics/story…

Ok folks its perp walk season. Tell your MAGA friends to wear something snappy and wrinkle free. apple.news/AYBzukXqnS7Grh…
Sweaty George Nader may still get a medal for “Most cooperative federal inmate” I heard Broidy, Prince, Jared, and more have Unfriended him on their Facebook Felon Group.
Didn't Bannon and Mr Pillow tell us to switch to MSNBC for more accurate news? Or maybe get it straight from the source. The Federal government.

Which one is Tahnoon? Who was using Wickr? Who set up the secure phone? Gaddam where is my popcorn?

Jeff takes to the honesty zone. Most expensive ten minutes since Stormy Daniels.
The optics to the public on these thrill rides to space are not good. They seem off. Maybe egotistical and devoid of the sense of adventure that fueled other high profile one shot adventurers. Maybe they are disconnected from earth. Maybe it's just me.

I used to say "Adventure is the cheap cologne of the 90s" I guess its now the expensive cologne of the 20's. forbes.com/sites/russalan…

"Havana Syndrome" includes China but "theories have included toxins, listening devices that accidentally emitted harmful sounds, or even mass hysteria"

Passive phones can be remotely stimulated to download data: "Polymeropoulos wondered if the Russians had inadvertently injured him while trying to collect the data in his phone remotely."

"Orbis Business Intelligence" is the missing company name they are rummaging for. The recipe for disinfo is around 90% truth and ten percent complete fabrication. The OSS used to call them "Black Letters". This could all be solved with one pee tape. wired.com/story/the-murk…
The funny thing is that Clinton had two oppo docs on Trump. One massive 400+ pager that included every published article on Trump and an attempt to figure out his links to Russia. He ended up in the arms of Israel and the Gulfie tribals while his minions humped Ukraine.
And then there were Trump's girlfriends. A tawdry bad porno oppo doc that could have nuked 100 politicians careers never surfaced. Even Billy Bush didn't slow Donald's roll.

They do these articles about once a year. Is there a typical "millennial"? No. But as brutal taskmaster who starts every employee lecture with "When I was a kid"... they do have strange habits and views. businessinsider.com/typical-40-yea…
I was told get a good government job, save your money, retire. I retired when I was 40...by massively expanding my peculiar hobby into a media business. inc.com/bill-murphy-jr…
The thing Millennials have in common is being saturated with news about war and violence 9/11. I enjoyed an early lifetime of no war. Millenials live in the here and now on social media. Its' almost unthinkable they would spend years writing a thousand page book from inside war.
