Comedy. Going to love the over reaction that is about to come and yet fuck all will truly change in most people’s lives. Give or take a few dollars here and there

RE: Harvey Weinstein
I find it super-fascinating that the ass-kicker in this whole thing -- Rose McGowan -- was raised in the Children of God cult (subsequently known as "Family of Love" and now called "Family International").
"Her father ran an Italian chapter of the Children of God, in which both he and his wife held membership until 1978. McGowan spent her early childhood amid the group's communes, often traveling through Europe with her parents. When interviewed by Howard Stern in 2001, she stated she had avoided the group's calls for members to become sexually active as children and stated that she never personally experienced abuse as a child."
The leader of the cult -- known as "The Love Prophet" -- was a freak named David Berg (a.k.a. "Moses David") who used to pimp out the young females to recruiit strangers into the cult by having sex with them. Where a Jehovah's Witness is supposed to go "witnessing" (knocking on doors, handing out leaflets of Watchtower magazine), the strategy for Children of God was called "FF-ing" ("Flirty Fishing") seducing new recruits with pleasures of nubile flesh. When the women orgasmed they were supposed to yell out how much they loved God. There have been widespread accusations of sexual abuse and pedophilia in that cult.
The cult has changed it's strategies since the death of "Moses David" in the mid-1990s, and FFing is no longer used. But the policy absolutely was used when McGowan was raised -- it was DOCTRINE. It must have been awfully perplexing and psychologically damaging for McGowan -- even if, as she tells Howard Stern, honestly-or-not, that she wasn't sexually abused as a kid -- her mother would have been expected to have sex with strangers to "bring 'em into the fold," and this was overt out-in-the-open.
There have been several documentaries about the cult from the 1970s & '80s... the most recent one a few years back was made by HBO, called "Lost and Found.". First part is here:
How come that is fascinating?
RE: Waikato and the Chiefs
. There were well publicised stats about the Chiefs in the last few seasons around the amount of players they had signed from unions outside their catchment VS the amount of players from the host unions. Who really wants that??
I don't care where the players hail from. That amature ship has long since sailed. I want the Chiefs winning titles, that's all that matter in terms of Super Rugby.
I am trying to think of a top professional competition that is 'regionalised' in terms of players
Footy World Cup - NZ V Peru
@Kirwan I think this calls for a trip to Wellington as we were the obvious good luck charm back in 2010
Truly excited but not expectant for these two legs. If Peru beat us at home, it is all over Mary, wipe ya leg!
We need Wood and Reid to be fit to stand any chance.
Reasonable Ticket Prices, starting at $59.
If you haven't been to a football game and have a mild interest, I urge you to go to this game if you're in the area, it is a fun atmosphere wuite different to Rugby. Kind of funnier, if you will.
I went in 2010 and it was one of the most enjoyable sprting events I have been to.
