Peter Lyons: Winners have a monopoly on reality (New Zealand Herald; Prepare for Irony)
The winners are in control. They are winners because they deserve to be winners. They are winners because of their own hard work, talent and application. They are winners because, unlike others, they have had the attitude and sheer drive to make it to the top.

Stealing has been around since the dawn of time, and, like most things, the Internet makes it easier. I'm not talking about identity theft or phishing schemes.

Trivia Question of the Day

What was the name of the 145-pound hog nominated in August, 1968, for President of the United States by the Youth International Party (Yippies)?

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Their single replaced the Beatles' "Penny Lane" on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1967 and remained there for three weeks, providing what group with their only #1 hit?

      The Turtles                                                      Source

The Turtles are an American rock band led by vocalists Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman, later known as Flo and Eddie. The band became notable for several Top 40 hits beginning with their cover version of Bob Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" in 1965. They scored their biggest and best-known hit in 1967 with the song "Happy Together".

The first of several key Turtles singles co-written by Garry Bonner and Alan Gordon, "Happy Together", seemed almost a parody of itself, and had already been rejected by countless performers. "Happy Together", both their biggest hit and their signature song, signaled a turning point for the Turtles and for Chip Douglas, who provided the arrangement. The single replaced the Beatles' "Penny Lane" at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the spring of 1967. The Turtles' only No. 1 remained there for three weeks. An album of the same name followed and peaked at No. 25.        Source

Charlie was first, and correct, with:
   It was the Turtles' "Happy Together."
  They had quite a few good songs besides that one, but the competition was tough in those days.

Alan J wrote:
   The Turtles

Jim from CA, retired to ID, said:
   Happy Together

Adam answered:
   'My Love' by The Turtles.

Deborah replied:
   WAGging here - was it "Happy Together" by the Turtles?

Randall responded:
   Boy, that's a tough one, Marty...
  The sixties...
  Not just the Sixties, either, but 1967 - the Summer of Love.
  Hippies, drugs, Viet Nam, flower-power...

  There was SO MUCH good music in the mid-60's
  The Beatles, of course, but also
  the Stones, the Supremes, The Young Rascals, The Doors...

  The Animals, I think that year Hendrix came out with

  You had Jefferson Airplane and Pink Floyd (before they made it big)
  Simon and Garfunkel, Aretha came out with "R-E-S-P-E-C-T",
  ELVIS was still alive (but it wasn't his best year)

  The Byrds, The Who, The Turtles, The Association, The Mamas and the Papas...
  That's a lot of music.
  So who beat out The Beatles' Penny Lane?

  Could've been any one of the aforementioned, they were ALL active in '67.

Marian said:
   The Turtles

DJ Useo answered:
   As a standing member of the Beatles Remixers Group ( ) I regularly discuss such matters,
  so it took not a whit of memory to recall the answer was The Turtles' "Happy Together".
  Of course, it's a highly 'poppy' tune, but I've always liked it.
  I initially heard the tune performed live by Flo & Eddie on the Mothers' album "Fillmore East - June_1971".

  I just read the other day about Flo & Eddie's winning lawsuit - Flo & Eddie of The Turtles Win Third Major Case against SiriusXM; Cost of Using Pre-1972 Music May Soon Skyrocket

   Sirius Radio has taken a shellacking in courts so far this year but other music formats shouldn't assume they're safe.

Hello Bartcop fans,

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and provide email lists and groups for those who might put something together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to

Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

Pay Dirt On eBay


What some have called the worst video game ever made has fetched thousands of dollars for a New Mexico city.

An old "E.T. The Extraterrestrial" game cartridge drew the highest bid among 100 Atari games auctioned on eBay by Alamogordo officials.

The games were part of a cache of some 800 Atari video games buried more than 30 years ago in a landfill and dug up in April.

Joe Lewandowski, a consultant for the film companies that documented the dig, says the online auction, which ended Thursday, generated $37,000.

The "E.T." game, still in its original box, sold for $1,537.



Employees stand behind one of Napoleon's hat at its auction in Fontainebleau, South of Paris, Sunday Nov. 16, 2014. Napoleon Bonaparte's famous bicorn hat was sold 1.5 million euros, $1,930,000. One of Napoleon Bonaparte's famous hats was among over 1,000 items relating to the French general that were auctioned near Paris this weekend.

First Pot Auction


Washington state's first marijuana auction brought in about $600,000.

Fireweed Farms of Prosser sold about 300 pounds of pot to state-licensed processors and retailers Saturday, the Tri-City Herald reported. Bidding took place under a black tent fronted by tall heaters, and the event was monitored by at least two representatives of the Washington Liquor Control Board. Bidders could smell plastic bags of buds before offering a bid.

The marijuana was planted in May and harvested between late September and mid-October. Fireweed Farms owner Randy Williams had sold some of his marijuana to recreational processors earlier this year, but the auction represented the bulk of his harvest.

Williams initially hoped to make $1 million through the marijuana fire sale, but said during the auction that he'd be happy with $600,000 or $700,000.

Historic Photos Resurface

Che Guevara

Lost for half a century, historic photographs of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara shortly after his execution taken by an AFP photographer have come to light in a small Spanish town.

The dark-bearded guerilla leader lies on a stretcher with his dead eyes open, his bare chest stained with blood and dirt, in the eight black and white photographs taken after he was shot by the Bolivian army in October 1967.

The photographs belong to Imanol Arteaga, a local councillor in the northern Spanish town of Ricla. He inherited them from his uncle Luis Cuartero, a missionary in Bolivia in the 1960s.

"He brought back the photographs when he came for my parents' wedding in November 1967," said Arteaga, 45. "My aunt and my mother told me a French journalist had given them to him."

He and his aunt found the photos among Cuartero's belongings after the missionary died in 2012.

25 Years Ago

Velvet Revolution

The Velvet Revolution that kicked off in Prague 25 years ago Monday was a seminal event in the collapse of communism. Try explaining that to children who have only known democracy.

That's the challenge tackled by two veterans of the uprising as the massive student protests faded ever further into the past. They wanted to capture the excitement of the rallies, the brutality of police beatings and the surreal repression of a nation that Vaclav Havel - later president - dubbed "Absurdistan."

So renowned puppet designer Miroslav Trejtnar and filmmaker Tatana Markova teamed up to present the Velvet Revolution in a 30-minute movie that tells the story of more than a dozen children of the revolution - now parents - through the magic of animation.

In the movie, the parents choose a toy - a small human figure or animal - and tell their own story by moving it on a big map of Prague. The toys are then animated to play out the drama of the events that toppled communism in Czechoslovakia.

Seizes Klan Twitter Account


The Twitter account belonging to American racial segregation org Ku Klux Klan has been taken over by hacker-activist entity Anonymous as part of Anonymous' new #OpKKK campaign.

@KuKluxKlanUSA is currently under the control of Anonymous after a week of mutual threats sparked by the KKK's announcement to use "lethal force" against Ferguson protesters.

Last week, a Ku Klux Klan group based 75 miles south of Ferguson, Missouri began distributing flyers threatening "lethal force" against Ferguson protesters in any aftermath of the upcoming grand jury decision regarding Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

The Riverfront Times reported that the St. Louis, Missouri KKK group passed out pamphlets starting, "Attention: To the terrorists masquerading as "peaceful protesters"!"

On Friday Anonymous began doxing (publicly revealing identities and personal information) of KKK members in the Ferguson/St. Louis area.

Won't Buy GMO Potato


The U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved Idaho-based J.R. Simplot Co.'s new genetically modified potato. But one of the company's oldest business partners - McDonald's - hasn't.

"McDonald's USA does not source GMO potatoes, nor do we have current plans to change our sourcing practices," the company said in a statement.

The USDA this month gave Boise-based Simplot permission to begin commercial planting of its new spud, called the "Innate" potato. The company altered the potato's DNA so it produces less acrylamide, which is suspected to be a human carcinogen. Potatoes naturally produce the chemical when they're cooked at high temperatures.

This isn't the first time the fast-food industry has resisted GMO potatoes. More than a decade ago, Monsanto brought its bug-resistant "New Leaf" line of genetically modified potato to market. Buyers, led by the fast-food industry, rejected the Monsanto spud, and it was pulled from production due to lack of business.

Manning Up: How 'Mantiques' Make It Cool for Average Joes to Shop and Decorate | Collectors Weekly


Prosecutors Troubled By Extent

Military Fraud

Fabian Barrera found a way to make fast cash in the Texas National Guard, earning roughly $181,000 for claiming to have steered 119 potential recruits to join the military. But the bonuses were ill-gotten because the former captain never actually referred any of them.

Barrera's case, which ended last month with a prison sentence of at least three years, is part of what Justice Department lawyers describe as a recurring pattern of corruption that spans a broad cross section of the military.

Despite numerous cases that have produced long prison sentences, the problems have continued abroad and at home with a frequency that law enforcement officials consider troubling.

In the past few months alone, four retired and one active-duty Army National Guard officials were charged in a complex bribery and kickback scheme involving the awarding of contracts for marketing and promotional material, and a trucking company driver pleaded guilty to bribing military base employees in Georgia to obtain freight shipments - often weapons which required satellite tracking - to transport to the West Coast.

More recently, a former contractor for the Navy's Military Sealift Command, which provides transportation for the service, was sentenced to prison along with a businessman in a bribery case in which cash, a wine refrigerator and other gifts traded hands in exchange for favorable treatment on telecommunications work. Also, three men, including two retired Marine Corps officers, were charged with cheating on a bid proposal for maintenance work involving a helicopter squadron that serves the White House.

Piero della Francesca's masterpiece "The Resurrection" is seen in the Civic museum in Sansepolcro, central Italy, November 7, 2014. The fresco, once described by English novelist Aldous Huxley as "the greatest picture in the world", was saved from destruction in World War Two by a British artillery officer who defied orders to shell the town. Today, the 15th century fresco of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is again in danger. Centuries of grime and humidity have wrought their damage, and the painting is flaking, cracking and discoloured. Austerity measures have dried up arts funding, so restorers have had to come up with an innovative scheme to blend private and state action to salvage the fresco.

Some of the World's Most Iconic Landmarks...Under Construction | 22 Words


Opening Office In North Dakota Oil Patch


The FBI is opening a permanent office in western North Dakota's oil patch to help the area deal with rising crime that has followed the state's oil boom. A few things to know about the office and why it's being established:

The North Dakota oil patch was once a sleepy and remote corner of America. But the oil boom in recent years - brought on by advances in oil extraction technologies - has brought tens of thousands of new arrivals to the area and given western North Dakota the nation's fastest-growing communities. With the growth has come more crime - and more sophisticated kinds of crime.

Police have found themselves dealing with human and drug trafficking, organized crime and homicides.

The FBI currently has satellite offices in Fargo, Grand Forks, Bismarck and Minot. But in expansive North Dakota, those are all long drives. Agents cycle into the oil patch, but local law enforcement officials have said that's not enough and have pushed their representatives to secure more federal help.

The FBI doesn't open new satellite offices often: The last was in New London, Connecticut, in 2006, FBI spokesman Christopher Allen said.

Weekend Box Office

'Dumb and Dumber To'

Twenty years after the 1994 original, "Dumb and Dumber To" opened with $38.1 million at the weekend box office, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Universal sequel debuted almost exactly two decades after the Farrelly brothers first introduced the Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels low-IQ duo.

"Dumb and Dumber To" edged out the animated Disney adventure "Big Hero 6," which took in $36 million in its second week. Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic "Interstellar" slid to third in its second week with an estimated $29.2 million. The film continues to blast off overseas, where it took in $106 million over the weekend, with sales particularly boosted by a strong opening in China.

The weekend gave Disney a new milestone. The studio passed $4 billion worldwide for the second year in a row, buoyed by in-house hits "Frozen" and "Maleficent," and Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Captain America: Winter Soldier."

Overall business was up 13.6 percent on the same weekend last year. The box office was boosted by a handful of independent films including "St. Vincent" ($4 million its sixth weekend) and "Birdman" ($2.5 million in its fifth weekend) as well as the limited released debuts of "Foxcatcher" and Jon Stewart's "Rosewater."

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, the latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

    1. "Dumb and Dumber To," $38.1 million ($9 million international).
    2. "Big Hero 6," $36 million ($11.9 million international).
    3. "Interstellar," $29.2 million ($106 million international).
    4. "Beyond the Lights," $6.5 million.
    5. "Gone Girl," $4.6 million ($4.8 million international).
    6. "St. Vincent," $4 million.
    7. "Fury," $3.8 million ($3.1 million international).
    8. "Nightcrawler," $3 million ($1.4 million international).
    9. "Ouija," $3 million ($3.3 million international).
   10. "Birdman," $2.5 million.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
