Righteous offer!

I became aware last week that scams like this are all over the internet. I went through all my coin jars and found some wheat pennies, so I went to the internet to see what they were worth. Even in very fine circulated condition, the ones I found were worth a whole five cents! But in the course of looking it up, I stumbled on some ads where people were selling the same coins in the same condition for hundreds of dollars. Hitler kinda had a point about The Big Lie. If you tried to sell those pennies for fifty cents, nobody would buy them, but place a $500 tag on them, and the sales price itself becomes a technique to convince people of their worth. Do they actually sell many? I guess not. But even one sale to a gullible soul represents free money.

“David Whipple said he originally bought the hamburger July 7, 1999, at the McDonald’s in Logan, Utah, to use in presentations on enzymes and deterioration. Whipple said the burger ended up forgotten in a coat pocket for several years and it ended up with viral fame when he rediscovered it in 2013. He said the burger was placed in a Big Mac tin and remained there for six years before being taken out again this week. Whipple said the burger still has the same appearance as when he bought it and gives off the smell of cardboard.”

Which means the smell has actually improved in the past 20 years.

“As optimistic as Mallet might be about his work, though, his peers are skeptical that he’s on the path to a working time machine.

‘I don’t think [his work is] necessarily going to be fruitful,’ astrophysicist Paul Sutter told CNN, ‘because I do think that there are deep flaws in his mathematics and his theory, and so a practical device seems unattainable.'”

Belinda Bauer in that eccentric 70s film, Winter Kills, which constantly walks a fine line between drama and comedy, often uneasily.

The details behind the production are as weird as the film itself:

Per Wikipedia:

“The film’s original producers were wealthy marijuana dealers Robert Sterling and Leonard Goldberg, who had previously worked on releasing the French softcore Emmanuelle films in the U.S. Many of the film’s interior scenes were shot in 1977 at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, then home to the American Film Institute’s film school. The production went so far over budget that it was shut down three times, having declared bankruptcy. Goldberg was murdered (most likely by the Mafia) in the middle of production, for failure to pay his debts, and Sterling was later sentenced to 40 years in prison for marijuana smuggling.

Director Richert and stars Bridges and Bauer went to Germany and filmed a comedy called The American Success Company (released in 1980), whose distribution rights made enough money for Richert to fund a resumption of Winter Kills two years later. Director of photography Vilmos Zsigmond had moved on to other projects, and was replaced by John Bailey.

The film’s distributor, Embassy Pictures, controlled the final cut, but a few years later, Richert acquired the rights to the film and re-released a director’s cut, with a new ending, in 1983.”
