Yeah but how often do you see them used for warmth as opposed to crime, in terms of media? I get having the instantaneous reaction that you then laugh at yourself about.

Uh, wearing balaclavas for warmth isn't exactly a thing for the news so you might think a huge number of people do it completely unobserved.

News isn’t the only form of media that exists.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a film or tv show where someone wore a balaclava for any reason other than Doing A Crime. It totally scans that people would be set to assume that before they remembered “oh yeah it’s just winter clothing and it’s cold as gently caress out here”.

:hmmyes: Also, like, there's a first time for everything. For most of my life I only ever saw people occasionally wearing them for winter sports stuff. Then, bam, Great Lakes area winter and you see a few people just rocking them on the sidewalks.

Since I feel bad for the derail, I'd note that for me this was a weird reminder about how we're kind of stuck relying on iffy institutions and the media to help fill blank spots and form narratives. Which at least feels relevant to the thread topic.

More because movies and TV shows will never let the talent's faces be covered unless they absolutely have to.

Also, if you go into a store with a group of guys all wearing long heavy winter coats you can be mistaken for the Mob. Inadvertent cosplaying during the holidays in Chicago.

I know what you did last summer, and frankly I am displeased.

So the Josh Duggar trial is going on and each of his two charges can get him up to 20 years in prison. They charges are possession of child sexual abuse material and receiving child sexual abuse material. The judge has made it clear he's not loving around. The defense tried to have Duggar's admission of sexually assaulting four girls when he was a teenager dismissed and it was denied. His lawyers seem like morons and when the Feds came knocking at the dealership where he worked to search his work computer his straight up said to them "Was somebody downloading child porn?". The stuff he's charged with having is so vile and so horrific that the investigators who deal with that said it's among the worst they've ever seen.

It seems very likely he's going down for this. Hopefully he'll get the maximum sentence with no parole. The Duggar family is a bunch of sick twisted freaks whose entire lives are build around child abuse and treating women as property. Get a load of this poo poo:

There's news reports about him walking into the dressing rooms of 16 year old models unannounced while they were changing. This was reported before he was elected president, people who like Trump really don't give a poo poo about all his sex crimes.

I'm not saying anything else about the case (I know nothing about this particular case, which appears to be about racketeering?) or about McGowan, but yikes is that a bad idea.

Oh, I will say "gently caress off, Harvey Weinstein!", of course.

She lost it from missing filing deadlines that had already been extended to her.

She's definitely not in a good place but this seems like just more fuel for her borderline Q beliefs and willingness to signal boost misogynist fascist republicans.
