-- The woman behind Dear Abby has passed away at 94. You can now address any advice to Dear Eric... --
-- Here's one guy who isn't going to help the reputation of lawyers: He slept with his client. Heyyyyyy not so bad, right? Probably an ethical violation, but I bet fairly prevalent. What got him was that he billed her for the hours they had sex. --
-- You've read stories about teachers sleeping with students. Here's a new angle, and it reads like a cheap porno. Librarian shows up at teen's house for sex. He says no. She leaves and sends him t*t pics. --
-- The supposed mastermind behind the Teo hoax tried out for The Voice, and had a very over-the-top sob story. OK, so the guy can tell tale...what caught my eye was this. An insider adds that Tuaisosopo "passed a background check and psych evaluation," which is standard for all reality TV show contestants. "Nothing came up, no suspicious behavior," the source says.
Woooooah. They do psych background checks on reality contestants?!?! And they STILL act the way they do? Nuts.
-- The only Lance answer that gets my attention is the last one. That sport (the one we don't care about) is engrossed in cheating and coverups. Move along. --
-- Some transcipt from a key Manti Teo interview. I'm still standing by my opinion that he was just a really gullible sucker. In this case, let's call on the line attributed to PT Barnum. Teo is the latest sucker. Sad. Humiliating. But it happens everyday.
-- Do you remember when Bart Simpson catfished Mrs. Krabapple? --
-- A psychologist to support my theory on Teo. “A lot of times they have lived the lie for so long that it becomes reality,” Nydegger said. “In fact the famous saying from an old sociologist, W.I. Thomas, was: ‘If men define situations as real, they are real in their consequences.’ And that’s exactly what happens.”“I see these kinds of situations in my practice, where an apparent online relationship that appeared to be entirely valid turned out not to be,” Nydegger said. “So can people believe it? Part of it depends on how badly they want to believe it.”
If for long enough you believe that sky the really is burnt orange, then that is your reality.
