How Many Hands Did They Think This Guy Had?
Math problem: if the man is accused of driving naked, drinking, and masturbating, how many hands does the witness see (allegedly)? The tricky world of press freedom and judicial limits placed on it somewhere in Britain—Thanet, maybe, if that's a place.
Bequinox 2016 Photos
I've got all my photos from Bequinox edited and uploaded here. Some samples:
I didn't realize how young this guy was until after I took this photo. He seemed to be stumped when I asked him if I could take his photo. "Whadda ya mean?" he asked.
Ed L. who will be a Burning Man virgin this year.
Jim. Of course, we're all familiar with the story of how he found this leopard outfit at the Dollar General in Hawthorne, Nevada, where all the finest Burner ladies acquire their wardrobe.
This is the view from our vantage point while the Nacho Daddies were in full action. We spotted a lot of fun stuff.
Public Indecency Charge
The original mugshot from the DHS Police (left) was so poor, I thought some Dreamscoping was called for. Definite improvement. Mr. Paulsen is accused of standing out in the middle of the street in broad daylight and masturbating. He gets another 5 minutes of infamy for that.
San Diego Police Chief Wants To Get Sued
Or, so it would seem. Video from police-worn body cameras is released to the public on an ad hoc basis as determined by the Chief and Mayor in San Diego. In response to a memo from the city attorney stating that the city council could establish a written policy for those releases, Chief Shelly Zimmerman said no thanks, she'll continue to just make it up in her own head as she goes along. Hello lawsuit.

He's Got Maille
Some kind person at Bequinox loaned some maille to this young man. It felt so good, he wore it all day long.
I just want to emphasize that this is March of 2016, because we've found an actual Sheriff in Missouri who had never heard of using butane to make an extract from marijuana. And they even put it in candy!
He's a Sheriff in LaClede County, right in the heart of southern Missouri.
Here's another video of the sheriff in which he claims highs from marijuana edibles lasts for two to three days! He also considers the presence of Gummi bears and butane in the same vehicle, to be reasonable cause.
The trouble with calling marijuana oil "marijuana honey" is that there is real marijuana honey; i.e. regular ol' bee honey with regular ol' green marijuana bits infused in it.
It's Come To This Point
Finally, someone has taken what is allegedly ISIS videos and turned them into something funny by liberally mistranslating the dialogue.

The Bequinox Robot
While listening to the March 15 city council meeting I was surprised to learn that Council Member Betts had come to consider me such a worthy expert on financial assurance that he read my opinion that I wrote in 2008 on D.R. Horton's request to replace their bonds with a lien.
It's just too bad that Mr. Betts didn't read the relevant posting from Ron's Log. That would be this one from 2010 which deals with the arrangement that is currently in place. This is the deal with the current owners. The difference between the two offers is that the deal that is in effect requires the developer to get new bonds to get rid of the lien. Otherwise, they can do nothing. No one mentioned a provision like that in the 2008 offer from D.R. Horton.
