It’s good to be a dead celebrity

Be the 1st to vote.

If you’re done producing music, best to die quickly to keep raking in the dough. If you can’t die naturally, and why would they, it’s best to simulate the death for the same future riches.

You can’t stop the music, even when its creator has shuffled off this mortal coil. That’s evident in the makeup of our Halloween-spooky ranking of highest-paid dead celebrities, where nine musicians grace the list of 13, up from just six a year ago.

Problem, reaction, ready-to-go solution

Be the 1st to vote.

The Hegelian dialectic in plain site for those with eyes to see.

A highly unlikely (I submit dismissible offence for the police officer it it were true) event.

A 38-year-old Mississauga man is facing a slew of charges after a gun was found at the feet of a handcuffed suspect in the back seat of a police vehicle. Police said that on Sunday officers were called to The Esplanade, in downtown Toronto, for reports of an impaired driver. They located a man sitting in the driver’s seat of a vehicle. He was taken into police custody and officers patted him down before handcuffing him and putting him in the back of the police car. According to police, while they…Ali Shobeg, 38, of Mississauga faces nine charges, including eight firearm-related charges.

Story is odd, unless you wait a few days and read something like this.

Toronto police are hoping to start using body scanners, a potential replacement for strip searches, by early 2020 — but critics say the technology still amounts to an invasion of privacy.

The force has launched a request for proposals for a three-year contract to provide at least one full-body scanner, and potentially up to 10 of the devices, according to public tender documents.

The Toronto Police Service “is committed to increasing the level of dignity and respect provided during our search process,” the documents read.

We’re all grown ups here -why can’t the public just be asked to buy them and tell the truth? How much are these things anyway?

When asked for comment by CBC Toronto, Toronto police spokesperson Connie Osborne said the force can’t share details on the project or its budget because the procurement process is in motion, only noting the service will be “moving forward.”

Nevermind. I forgot some public institutions are actually private, including the police.

Toronto drill time

Doubt they will make anything out of this here in Toronto, but you never know.

Big Grizzly thread

Russian bears are traditionally very smart and well behaving and Tim (the bear) here shows off some of his daunting skills – particularly Tim the bear’s timely clapping looks quite man-in-suite like.

The bear performance made animal activists very upset (Four Paws UK, PETA)…

Performing bear at Russian match is ‘inhumane’…

Really special effects

LARPer specials.

ForKnisely, seeing people freak out because of their effects on camera is his favourite part. He’s hoping the police don’t end up coming by for any more false alarms, but is happy to know the neighbourhood is looking out for their community.”People believe these are actually bodies even though they’re just dummies,” he said.”Thanks for the compliment.”…

Fast forward to 29:33 for the Lance Armstrong story.

For the record, I think the testicular cancer story is fake, but required for the Phoenix story.

The final chapter in one of the biggest financial hoaxes in Canadian history.

Bre-X was the darling of the Toronto Stock Exchange after reporting finding a major gold deposit in Indonesia. But the Busang mine find was later revealed to be a fake, resulting in the company’s shares nose-diving and wiping out about $3 billion in investors’ money.…

Even @anounceofsaltperday wouldn’t like the salting of this mine in this hoax.

I believe real people lost real money in this one.
