No. Different Oatmeal.


i have a worrying suspicion that he died some time ago
I have to wonder how many of the people we talked to over the years have died, but that being said, I don't have any information that oatmeal died.

He only posted here during 2008, but the last time he visited was in 2012.

It'd probably be pretty depressing trying to track down all the old users. off hand I know Shooey died, but FD's still kicking around.

Unless Shoey died in the last month I’m fairly certain he’s still alive.

I'm glad Kirk finally came bback. Last I heard he was into some life-changing human waste like retiring and caring for his sick mom. If he's posted an update on that I missed it. Best wishes to you Kirk.

Now if we can get Geesie to check in, that would be great ...

Yeah, I miss Geesie too. I'm guessing he's still dealing with the PTSD from trawling all those alt-right Mos Eisleys for us.

I moved into my current apartment the day before the election, and wasn't eligible to register to vote.

He blames me for Trump.

It's okay. I have at least as much blame to aim back in his direction.

It's Ultraseven (1967-68), the second Ultraman series (third if you count Ultra Q, which was a B+W Kaiju serial which didn't feature any Ultrabeing, but was basically the Science Patrol vs. the monsters). Ultraseven is considered by most fans to be the best of the lot and I tend to agree, for it's dark horror elements and farther-edged science fiction.

Couple finds camera pointed at their bed hidden among wires going to the TV in their Carnival Cruise stateroom. Video at link, but do note: the top video will continue to play unrelated videos if not stopped. The second linked video is not related to this story.

Oddly Carnival issued this:
In a statement to USA TODAY, Carnival acknowledged a "video transmitter" was found during a full investigation by the shipboard team, but notes it "was not connected to an electrical source and not capable of recording."

Of course it was "not capable of recording". It did not have to do that being a transmittter. And directly contradicting the victim about not being connected does not help.

They may have been technically correct - as the camera could easily be powered from batteries - but that was a pretty disingenuous statement. They would have been better off keeping their mouths shut and letting the FBI handle it.
