At least put it in a fund for her to go to college or something. blink.gif

she earned it. she should keep it. i find the authorities' story a bit hokey.
> nobody has a pimp AND an agency. it's one or the other.

>if the state takes the money for the girl selling herself, they become that girl's defacto pimp. that's even more disgusting.

Well, the article *was* from the Mail. Outside of Pravda, I don't think there is a more bullshit paper out there.

If the little girl hid turning tricks from her parents for two months before getting busted, I'm pretty sure she wouldn't be walking around school with such contraband. And are kids in the UK prohibited from having condoms or something?

Get this! In new Octomom news, Vivid Video has offered her $1,000,000 & a year's free baby healthcare for a year if she does a porno for them. Just when I think this shit couldn't get more bananas.
girltrouble
jesus....if she did a porno, based on that interview with her mom, she'd want to get pregnant from the deal too.
culturehandy
Gross! I would not want to see that woman in a porno. Blech.

I like the comment someone made about her really being a media whore.

As for the girl who was the escort, I was pretty outraged that the teacher went through her things. Talk about a total invasion of privacy. If she was really concerned, could she not have pulled the student aside or something.

A few things in that escorting story don't add up but then it is the Mail (as AP says, it's a shit tabloid).

However, there is an increase in prostitution amongst young, female Eastern European immigrants and, in a number of cases, the parents are involved; it's the case in my home city anyway.

The gays. The gays stole all the lipbalm so they can get new recruits. In our dwindling economy they need all the toaster ovens they can get.
zoya
man, I must be as gay as a three-dollar bill, because I've gone through a whole tube of nivea caregloss today....
auralpoison
I've got tubs & tubes of the stuff hidden all over. You ever wanna see me freak out, see me sans lipgunk.

ETA: I am half-ass listening to Octomom being grilled by Dr. Phil. I cannot decide if what I feel is an overwhelming sadness or an overwhelming rage. The woman has the emotional/mental maturity of a thirteen year old girl.
girltrouble
oh no, z, gloss makes you a tranny. balm makes you gay.
bunnyb
cheers, gt.

I'm all about the vaseline lip balm myself.
zoya
ok... I'm using Nivea "caregloss & shine" in bright red. It's basically a balm and gloss all in one. Does that mean I'm a gay tranny?
bunnyb
Yes. Go out and buy a feather boa, preferably a pink one.
girltrouble
z, as my friend would say: "yes, dear, you are extra fancy."

you like having a super buff boy body, to show off. but for clubbing you can't resist wearing a speedo, barbie heels, full make up, a huge wig...

....and a pink boa.
zoya
fuck yeah! I always knew there must be a reason that every guy I get with just inexplicably goes south on me... they must see something I'm not: that I've been batting for the wrong team! ps - can I go get spray tanned first? and wear frosted lip gloss that matches my pink boa? I promise it won't clash with my bloody ma....errr.. liquid steak.
auralpoison
This thread has gone completely off the rails!

Dude, frosted anything is evil in my eyes. As much as I would like to get with Le Izzard, I cannot get over his love of frosted cosmetics. A bit here or there is okay (A bit of eye shine, the tops of the cheekbones.), but he's set to frosted overkill. I likes me the classic beauties. Give me a strong red lip, classic face anyday.

Bloody bull! Beefamato!

yeah, you're right, but it just got me thinking: my knee jerk reaction was why thafuck did they take the money she sold her *body* for?
but then, where does the letter of the law come in?

So, the financial terrorists at Cap1 are jacking at least 50% of their customers APRs up. Mine included. Didn't those clowns get TARP money? What do they think they're getting at?
ETA: Hehehehehe... biggrin.gif
girltrouble
it's a money grab. banks are still failing-- i think 3 on friday. they are syphoning off much of the money in bonuses. what kills me is the inequity of how the banks and other industries are treated. the autos are asking for a fraction of the banks, but they have to jump thru crazy hoops and pay all of the money back (instead of stocks). who says the classes don't exist in the us?

Testify! Best thing I've read in days. And yeah, I'm a lip balm freak. I'm gonna have to check out that Carebalm stuff.

Also: agreed, Izzard is way too frosty. Even his hair. Looks like Linda Evans in Dynasty circa 1984.
auralpoison
Huh. And here I thought it was just me that was lipbalm bananas.

And I KNOW, right? He's such a lovely fellow, I just wish somebody would take away all that frosted stuff. Somebody once did me a favor long ago by telling me that my favorite lipstick looked awful. And they were right, it did look like shite.

So, the judgement is due in Vincent Lis' trial today (the man who, during a major psychotic episode, decapitated a fellow passenger on a Greyhound Bus).

Well, the victim's mother wants to get something done so people found NCR will never be released from an institution ever (sounds a little archaic and ignorant to me, but I can certainly understand her grief).

Anyways, this little ditty was in the paper today.

Here's the correct one.

I understand Tim McClean's mother's feelings, but I've heard she's been saying some pretty ignorant things too, something about how Canadian Immigration failed when they let him in the country. It's a horrible thing to have to go through but people seem to think Li will be released in the next year or something. I think he'll be in a facility for a very long time though.
culturehandy
I heard the same thing. Some comments people are making as well...saying justice has failed? HOW has it failed? He's going away regardless, and locking someone up and not letting them out, ever? that bringd to mind the images of old school, victorian-esque asylums where lobotomies were performed left right and centre.
vixen_within
wow that's a heavy article culturehandy. when i heard the murdered man's sister on the radio today, i agreed that there is injustice in calling up the family every year to speak at Li's assessment which determines whether he stays incarcerated or not. they were in for a lifetime of pain anyway with the violent loss, but now they get to anticipate reliving the pain and anger every year...there has to be a better way.
it's a good article i wouldn't have thought of it from that perspective.
culturehandy
Playing the devil's advocate here, what if he hadn't been found NCR, and was guilty of second degree murder, second degree murder has a lighter sentance than what an NCR sentance is. In all reality, for the same crime, found guilty of NCR, Li could have been sentanced to what, 2 years in prison. To the family I ask, what is a harsher sentance?

Further, when found guilty but NCR, you are under control of an agency for the rest of your life. There is always someone involed, one doesn't have the freedom of someone found guilty of 2nd degree murder, then on probation, then all done!

How about some good news?
Jezebel
Is anyone following the Meghan McCain/Ann Coulter/Laura Ingraham drama that went down this week? I'm totally amused.
jsmith
What happened?
vixen_within
Well the AIG scandal made it across the border. But I wonder what the american government thought they were subsidizing when these guys showed up in their private leer jets etc. to ask for a bail out.
The car companies have started to look for some millions of $ in Canada too. I know my perspective and knowledge is pretty limited when it comes to this, but it seems to me that all you have to do is look outside the window to see that the market is oversaturated. We're never going to see that money again.
missladyj
Jezebel,
could you post a link about that? I am curious. thanks!

What happened?


the ugly, skinny, beeotches, Coutler and Ingrahm, called the pretty, young curvy one, "fat". When they were called out on it, they told her to get over it and take a joke.

Why anyone even pays attention to those women, is beyond me.... Though I think Megan McCain, is pretty vacuous herself, and I find it totally DUMB that anyone reads her blogs about how hard it is for her to date people when all they want to talk about is politics.

They are all annoying. Republican women pundits? Totally not interesting.
girltrouble
the whole story is megan mccain said that ann coulter didn't make sense, was confusing, and some other things, that are basically true, while coulter hasn't said anything, laura ingram jumped in and said something about mccain being little more than a "plus sized model."

i've been following it, it's pretty amusing.

but G3 is right, they are irritating, although i must admit, i find them interesting, if olny because female republican pundits literally don't make much sense. granted, the gop's ideas are absurd in countless ways, but it seems the only prerequisite to being a lady right wingnut talking head is that you be blonde and slightly photogenic. the exceptions, (mary matalin, bay bucannan) never get as much attention, although, they are seemingly the only ones who can actually argue a point logically.

it's been fun to watch in the last year as each of them does their public pratfalls. i will give ms. mccain some credit, she isn't the poster child for stupid like that woman on the view. i swear they can't follow an argument's conclusion any further than their nose.

Sorry for disappearing and not explaining what the hell I was talking about laugh.gif

When I first read Meghan McCain's blog about Ann Coulter, my thoughts were pretty much 'wow, criticizing Ann Coulter, that's never been done'. At the same time, I can kinda appreciate her willingness to put herself out there and deal with all of the right-wing crazy that comes down on anyone who dares to suggest that it's okay to be a moderate Republican. I also think she's doing a pretty good job of playing the current political climate to launch her 'career'.

Laura Ingraham can suck it, pretty much. If the only criticism you've got is 'oh yeah? we'll you're fat', then you should probably just keep your mouth shut. And given Ingraham's history of ridiculous remarks, it's pretty funny to me that she thinks she's a good judge of who should be taken seriously. Her attempt to somehow blame the whole situation on liberals was pretty funny too.

This AIG thing is SICK. They get bonuses for running the company into the ground, meanwhile the IRS wants $5,000 from my grandmother WHO DID NOT WORK AT ALL IN 2008 BECAUSE SHE'S DISABLED. Jesus H Christ, goddamn, mary-mother-of-cod, by Jove, it just isn't right.
