Famous Las Vegas criminals/crimes;

  Tommy C., the mechanic;

      "Starting in 1980 in the back of his TV repair shop in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Tommy C. invented, refined, then manufactured devices for cheating slot machines.
  Tommy's bag of tricks ranged from coins on strings to light wands that blinded machine sensors, fooling them into dropping their coins. For most of two decades, C. and his partners raked in millions of dollars. But his luck finally ran out when federal agents tapped his phone and heard him discussing a new device that would rack up hundreds of credits per minute on slot machines.
   In 2001, C. was sentenced to about a year in jail, and was ordered to stay out of casinos. In 2003, he told an Associated Press reporter he was developing a new gadget, called "the Protector."
   It was designed to stop slot cheaters."


  Dennis N., the genius;

     "Like a football quarterback, Dennis N needed his blockers. In N's case, however, they were blocking surveillance cameras while he worked his sweet computer magic on slot machines.
Once the machines were rigged, the clever hacker vacated the premises, leaving it to confederates to win the jackpots.
Cops have reported that the N gang raked in at least $16 million between 1976 and 1998, even with a 10-year time-out while N spent in federal prison and on parole.
When he was caught again in 1998, N indicated that he'd share his secrets in return for a lighter sentence. He got seven years - and apparently refused to talk. "I have no desire to explain anything to the public," he wrote to an Internet magazine in 1999 from jail. "Never smarted up a chump."
    He died in 2010. from unknown causes".

Actually, and, thank you for your response Lily o'...,

  You think you're a badass one minute, 
  Within seconds you start tearing, puking, and crying.

  Humans, apparently, some humans...

   enjoy torturing themselves.

   are aspiring YouTube celebrities who will eat scorching hot ghost peppers in exchange for views, likes, and subscribers.
   maybe a right of passage, maybe because of middle school peer pressure...


  Whatever the reason(s) heed the sage advice as this poor sot apparently ignored;

White Rainbows, Moonbows and Fogbows

What Are Moonbows?

Also called a white rainbow, a moonbow appears when moonlight (which is sunlight reflected off the moon) in the days just before, during, and after a full moon hits the mist generated by the falls.

 Moonbows or lunar rainbows are rare natural atmospheric phenomena that occur when the Moon’s light is reflected and refracted off water droplets in the air.

   Waterfalls are among the most reliable places to catch a rainbow, but only two on the planet offer up a regular display of its close cousin, the moonbow:
Cumberland Falls in Kentucky and Victoria Falls on the Zambia-Zimbabwe border.

  Moonbows are occasionally—but not regularly—seen elsewhere in the world, including at Yosemite Falls in California.

 Fogbows, or white rainbows, these arcs are much less vivid than the ones you're used to seeing on rainy day. The science behind fog bows is the same as with regular rainbows: Sunlight bounces off of water produces the colorful prism. The water droplets are smaller in fog, accounting for the grey-ish color.

 The contour of a fog bow may appear much looser than a regular rainbow's curvature. according to NASA: “The fog itself is not confined to an arch—the fog is mostly transparent but relatively uniform. The fogbow shape is created by those drops with the best angle to divert sunlight to the observer.”

Butt no one has ever survived long enough
to photograph it.

The % is the new anti-# !! 

"Let's face it: Hashtags are overused. Social media captions and status updates have been morphed into a mishmash of nonsensical words all prefaced by a pound symbol.

(vv passionate foul language alert vv!)


Is the hashtag over

  • Out of 66 ads only 30% of them had a hashtag - while 41% included a URL !!!!!

Alert Alert!  

New Alicia Vikander Lara Croft Tomb Raider Pix;

[Image: Tomb%20Raider%20casting.jpg]

The 2013 game explored Lara's archeologist origins and it appears the film will follow a similar plot. Walton Goggins is set to play the villain in the movie, while Dominic West will portray Lara's father.

Screenwriter Geneva Robertson-Dworet has supposedly completed a draft of the screenplay that the producers like, and the movie is ready to move into the next phase of production. This could potentially put The Tomb Raider into an October 6, 2017 release date, less than two years from now. Heroic Hollywood also points out Warner Bros registered the domain http://www.thetombraidermovie.com almost a month ago.

This new Tomb Raider would be based off the latest Tomb Raider video games, in which a young Lara Croft is just starting out on her adventures and discovering the secrets of the world. It's fitting material to start a new film series, so these rumors make a lot of sense.

Alicia Vikander's Tomb Raider Is a 'Fresh,' 'New' Take on Lara Croft

By Terri Schwartz
 Alicia Vikander will soon be taking on the mantle of Lara Croft, and she promises her version won't be too similar to the Angelina Jolie films that came out in the early '00s.

  The 2018 film she'll be starring in is inspired by Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics' 2013 reboot of the franchise, Tomb Raider. That game, and its 2015 sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider, offered a new origin story for Lara and established her as a more well-rounded character. The 2018 Tomb Raider movie will similarly seek to differentiate itself from the Jolie-starring films that came before it.

Tomb Raider Reboot Casts Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft - IGN News

"The difference is that you clearly see from the previous games and what they were aiming on making as a difference, with making it a bit more of an origin story," Vikander told IGN while she was promoting her new film, Jason Bourne. "That is something I think that we’re trying to have as our main thing, to show the journey of becoming what we know her as: Lara Croft."
Vikander couldn't get into specifics about how similar or not her Tomb Raider film would be to Crystal Dynamics' take on the story, but she did promise it would be different from the previous films. Her excitement extends beyond just telling a new take on a classic character, though, as she's a big fan of the franchise.

"For me, Tomb Raider is about the excitement of working on a project with a female character that I again in one way have a relationship with. I played the game when I was a kid. I was running around in that house and jumping in the pool and doing all the action -- and then of course Angelina Jolie made her into an icon with her films," Vikander said. "That was also something that I thought of when I first heard that they were going to make a Tomb Raider film, and then I found out that they were going to make a film based on the rebooted game from 2013. I think what we’re now going to do is we’re aiming to do something very fresh and something new that can stand on its own two legs."

Roar Uthaug is directing the flick.His graduation film The Martin Administration was the second Norwegian student-film in history to be nominated by AMPAS (the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Science) for the Student Academy Awards

I can't find much on the author, Geneva Dworet's work. I'm dying to know her take on the young Lara. There are a number of  ways they could go with the character and the cast of the film.

This could be a real fun movie.

Can't wait!

(Overly zealous gushing rant epilogue, Daisly Ridley would be Lara's alluded to sister and Rhona Mitra her mysteriously missing Mom.
Now I have peace.)
