George Francis Barnes Jr. (July 18, 1895 - July 18, 1954), better known as"Machine Gun Kelly", was an American gangster from Memphis, Tennessee, during the prohibition era. His nickname came from his favorite weapon, a Thompson submachine gun. His most infamous crime was the kidnapping of oil tycoon and businessman Charles F. Urschel in July 1933 for which he, and his gang, collected a $200,000 ransom. Their victim had collected and left considerable evidence that assisted the subsequent FBI investigation that eventually led to Kelly's arrest in Memphis, Tennessee, on September 26, 1933. His crimes also included bootlegging and armed robbery.

Machine Gun Kelly really wasn't the bad-ass that he was made out to be. Kidnapped…got caught…died in jail in 1954. Strip Poker losers…winners
I looked it up - that's Machine Gun Kelly.
More rainstorms lined up, and I'm finally feeling the best I've felt in 9 days.

Joe S replied:
George Francis Barnes Jr. sounds a lot like Machine Gun Kelly, so I'm going with that.
Everybody can have a machine gun now, like Machine Gun Bundy.

Machine Gun Kelly, kidnapper of oil rich asshole, got taken alive and died in prison. Should have gone down fighting like Bonnie and Clyde, not clutching the soap in the shower.

Having played the part of iconic inventor Dr. Frank N. Furter in the original film, Tim Curry is returning to "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" for FOX's late 2016 edition of the modern classic -- but this time in a different role.
Curry played Frank N. Furter in Richard O'Brien's London musical, then on Broadway, and then on screen for its 1975 cinematic adaptation.
Now, upon his return, he'll be cast as the show's narrator, Vulture reports, a part that was fulfilled by Charles Gray ("Diamonds Are Forever," "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes") in Jim Sharman's cult film.
Among those already cast are "Glee" actor and "American Idol" finalist Adam Lambert, Victoria Justice of TV series "Victorious," and Reeve Carney of "Penny Dreadful."
Laverne Cox ("Orange Is the New Black") is to play Frank N. Furter and Kenny Ortega of "Michael Jackson's This Is It," "High School Musical," and the just-announced "Dirty Dancing" remake is to direct the two-hour TV special.

Thousands of archaeological artifacts - and maps detailing where more can be found - are kept inside the national wildlife refuge buildings currently being held by an armed group of protestors angry over federal land policy.
Ryan Bundy, one of the leaders of the group occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in southeastern Oregon, says they have no real interest in the antiquities. Still, their access to the artifacts and maps has some worried that looters could take advantage of the situation.
More than 300 recorded prehistoric sites are scattered across the refuge, including burial grounds, ancient villages and petroglyphs. Some of the artifacts - including spears, stone tools, woven baskets and beads - date back 9,800 years.
About 7,000 artifacts and samples from the refuge are kept at a museum in Eugene, Oregon. But 4,000 more are kept at the refuge for research.
Scientists are also worried about unintentional damage that could be done to the prehistoric sites by cattle, vehicles and heavy equipment.
Wikipedia is getting another source of cash for its 15th birthday, expanding beyond fundraising drives that have already poured $250 million into the Internet's leading encyclopedia.
The additional money will come from a new endowment created for Wikipedia, whose website started Jan. 15, 2001, and is now overseen by the nonprofit Wikimedia Foundation in San Francisco.
The Wikimedia Endowment will start with less than $1 million donated by the estate of Jim Pacha, a software engineer who died in 2014, and then build toward a goal of accumulating $100 million by 2026. Wikipedia won't begin drawing money from the endowment after it's fully funded.
Wikipedia still plans to ask its users to donate money to keep advertising off its website. The additional income from the endowment will help insulate Wikipedia from economic turmoil and other potential threats to its survival, said Lisa Gruwell, chief advancement officer for the Wikimedia Foundation.
Wikimedia generated revenue of $76 million while its operating expenses totaled about $53 million in its last fiscal year ending June 30. The $23 million surplus contributed to the foundation's cushion of about $65 million in cash and short-term investments - enough to cover its projected operating expenses for all of the current fiscal year.
Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate her 90th birthday with a street party for 10,000 people outside Buckingham Palace, her grandson said Friday -- although tickets will not come cheap at £150 ($215, 200 euros).
Peter Phillips, the queen's eldest grandchild and son of Princess Anne, is organising the Patron's Lunch, which he said would have a "carnival atmosphere".
The more than 600 charities and organisations of which the queen is patron will be able to buy 9,000 of the tickets and sell on up to 40 percent of them in fundraising events -- with the rest to be distributed among staff.
Next month, members of the public will be able to enter a ballot for the other 1,000 tickets.
Former "Saved by the Bell" actor Dustin Diamond has been booked into jail to start his four-month sentence for an altercation at a Wisconsin bar.
The Ozaukee County Jail website shows Diamond was booked Friday.
Diamond played Screech on the 1990s TV show. He was convicted in June of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors. He was cleared of a felony. He was to start jail during the summer, but a judge put the sentence on hold while Diamond appealed. Diamond withdrew his appeal last month.
Diamond testified he was trying to protect his girlfriend when he pulled out a pocketknife to ward people off and accidentally stabbed a man at the Port Washington bar on Christmas in 2014.
Oregon State Police arrested a man Friday they said was driving a government vehicle stolen from a wildlife refuge being occupied by an armed group protesting federal land policies.
Kenneth Medenbach, 62, of Crescent was arrested at a grocery store in Burns for investigation of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, authorities said.
It was unclear if he was one of the men occupying Malheur National Wildlife Refuge or if he has a lawyer. According to federal court records Medenbach is already facing charges in U.S. District Court in Medford after authorities said he illegally camped on federal land last year.
Authorities also say they recovered a second stolen vehicle from the refuge but provided no other details. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service previously reported the vehicles had been stolen.
So far authorities have not tried to remove the group from the refuge as the standoff hits the two-week mark. As it drags on, people in the high desert area are growing increasingly weary and wary of the group.

Oil prices plummeted to $29 a barrel on Friday on the likely resumption soon of Iranian oil exports into an already flooded market as international sanctions against Iran are lifted, dragging equity indices around the world sharply lower.
Skittish investors snapped up gold and other safe-haven assets amid fears of a global economic slowdown, coupled with concerns about a potential credit default as lower commodity prices make payments by creditors in emerging markets difficult.
Major stock indices in Europe closed down more than 2 percent, while Wall Street stock indexes tumbled even more. Global crude benchmark Brent settled below $29 a barrel, capping a 13 percent decline for the week.
Yields on the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury note were poised to fall below 2 percent and gold rose as retreating oil prices and equity markets underpinned demand for assets perceived as safer. U.S. gold futures for February delivery settled up 1.6 percent at $1,090.70 an ounce.
New audio released by The New York Times refutes Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's claim that he never called for a 45 percent tariff on Chinese exports during a recent editorial board meeting with the paper.
Trump, during Thursday night's debate, denied having called for the 45 percent tariff if he's elected president.
"That's wrong. They were wrong," he said during the debate, which was hosted by Fox Business Network. "It's the New York Times," he added. "They are always wrong."
An audio clip from the meeting posted by the paper contradicts the billionaire businessman and GOP candidate.
"I'm a free trader. I love free trade, but it's got to be reasonably fair," he adds. "I would do a tax, and the tax - let me tell you what the tax should be: The tax should be 45 percent. That would be a tax that would be an equivalent to some of the kind of, you know, devaluations that they've done. They cannot believe that we haven't done this yet."
A sign for Bowie Street in the Texas capital of Austin, named for a defender of the Alamo, is seen as it has been changed to "David Bowie Street" to honor the music great who died a few days ago in Austin, Texas January 15, 2016. Roland Swenson, co-founder of South by Southwest festival, a global event celebrating music, tech and film that attracts tens of thousands of people annually, put up the sign out of show of respect for the music great shortly after he died, a lawyer for Swenson said.

Republican White House hopeful Ted Cruz (R-Pendejo) faced a legal challenge to his eligibility to be president Friday in a lawsuit filed over his birth in Canada.
It comes after frontrunner Donald Trump (R-Wichser) -- a 'birther' who famously challenged President Barack Obama to produce his Hawaiian birth certificate -- has been hammering away at the hardline Texas senator's eligibility.
The lawsuit filed in federal court in Texas is seeking a judgment on Cruz's eligibility, arguing that the case law is simply not clear on the definition of a natural born US citizen.
Cruz was born in 1970 in Calgary, Alberta to an American mother and a Cuban father who returned to live in the United States after a year. Cruz renounced his Canadian citizenship last year.
Haggerty died Friday at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, California, according to his manager, Terry Bomar. Haggerty was 74 and had been battling cancer of the spine, Bomar told The Associated Press.
Haggerty, born in Pound, Wisconsin, had minor roles in such films as "Easy Rider" and the Elvis Presley musical "Girl Happy" before playing the title role in the 1974 movie about Grizzly Adams.
