Assholes in the news

sums up this bunch of clowns.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/31/us/cre....html?_r=0

At the edge of dark, dark woods in South Carolina, children have been telling adults that a group of clowns have been trying to lure them into the cluster of trees. They say the clowns live deep in the woods, near a house by a pond.

This tale sounds like a mishmash of newspaper clippings and pages ripped from Stephen King novels, but these are actually details taken from a report filed by the sheriff’s office in Greenville County, S.C., last week, after several residents at an apartment complex there said that people in clown makeup had been terrorizing both children and adults.

Several children said that clowns were offering them money to follow them into the woods, close to the house by the pond. (The police say they have found no evidence of clown paraphernalia at the house.)

A woman walking home late one night said she had seen a “large-figured” clown waving at her from under a streetlight, the police said. (She waved back.) And another woman said her son had heard clanging chains and a banging noise at his front door. In these cases, people who reported clown sightings refused to give their names to the police.

The police don’t know whether the stories are coming from the imaginations of children or something sinister is afoot, but panicked residents seemed to be taking the law into their own hands: The Greenville sheriff’s office investigated reports that residents of the apartment complex may have fired shots in the direction of the wooded area.

I like clowns except for Pennywise and Donald Trump.

My daughter has an instinctive fear of clowns, she's never ever heard of Pennywise or Trump. She just doesn't like them.

It's because they are so freakish looking with their painted faces and mop of hair. They don't look welcoming or charming, they are scary looking.

Seems like police suspect they're dealing with a case of false group think or a hoax with the situation in South Carolina.

They haven't found any evidence of clowns living in the woods and trying to lure kids in with money despite several searches, but have increased patrolling of the area (according to yesterday's news update).

Given the spread of coulrophobia over the last few decades, I doubt the original Ronald McDonald would fly today....he's morphed into a much more friendly looking character.

911 woman's story had everyone fooled.


Tania Head had one of the most harrowing accounts from 911 and eventually became the president of a survivor's network, but the woman was ultimately proved to be a fraud and wasn't even in the country on September 11, 2001. A reporter doing follow up 911 research, and asking questions discovered the complete lie.

Unbelievable, some people are just pathological liars!

RE: Assholes in the news

I remember that girl, I felt kinda sorry for her. At the same time as that all became public I worked with a woman who had similar psychological issues, she would insert herself into every news story pathologically and her 9-11 yarn was that her rich fiancee (she had a big fake zirconia she passed off as diamond that she had bought herself and said was his) had gone to NY and died in the towers and was a doctor/pilot/hero. No such person existed but she told that story for years. Reminded me of the other girl when the story broke.
Same girl also had a story about why she hid in her apartment with shabby furniture involving the mob and having turned states evidence and being in witness protection. Years after she was fired she found out I'd taken a HR position in retail and tried to get them to hire her by telling them we were lovers or some shit. I only knew because the boss came to me with what she'd been saying and wanted to know who the hell she was (she had also managed to get hold of a couple home phone numbers and was calling their houses). I like My women a little crazy, but not THAT crazy.






Thank god I am oblivious to the opinions of others while caught in the blinding splendor of my own cleverness.

If Hillary doesn't win the Presidency, she can still garner a coveted Ambassadorship
