One lot to consist of hoodie and sunglasses. Kaczynski used different methods to disguise his identity when he traveled to commit Unabom crimes. He maintained several different pairs of sunglasses. Included among the sunglasses were these, strongly resembling those believed to have been worn by Kaczynski when he was seen in February of 1987 in Salt Lake City as he committed yet another Unabom crime. A subsequent artist drawing based on the memory of the witness resulted in the infamous sketch the mysterious Unabomber wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and aviator sunglasses. This was the only time during all of the Unabom crimes that the subject was ever seen. The artist drawing became a universal symbol of the hunt for the Unabomber and has been circulated worldwide.

Hoodie and Sunglasses [GSA Auctions]

Bidding Underway As Feds Auction Off The Unabomber’s Stuff [TPM]


TJ/ Jack Stauf has posted an old “Ask A Lobbist” column over at the site-which-shall-not-be named. I’m not sure if it is one of Megan’s or not, though, or just a parody of one.

It is “retro day” over there.

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: So, lobbyists do a lot of blow and Washingtonians are sexless. I feel so enlightened.

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That:

Did no one tell Jack what happened to the last “a Lobbyist”? I don’t think I can handle that drama again.

I’m sorely tempted to respond to that comment.

@Yo! JNOV Raps!: Responded, although my comment seems to be held up in the approval queue.

@nojo: Awesome. If it doesn’t make it up, post it here, and I’ll link to it. Wait. I don’t have an account over there since they split. ‘Catt’ll link to it.

@nojo: I tried, but they won’t let me. Man, I get kicked off all the lamest blogs.

How can it be Retro Day without a Butterstick post?

@Yo! JNOV Raps!: Something to the effect of “We’ll be happy to recreate the 1500-comment thread on request.”

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Pain in the arse logging in there. I had to bounce around three websites to get it right.

@nojo: Heh.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Me, too. Weird.

I never thought I’d see a commenting system worse then Disqus. Let’s see if this makes it:

This commenting system is crap, kinda like Layne.

I didn’t even log in — just put in a name and email. Didn’t see where I sign up.

Annnnnnd, nothing. Stupid ass site. Ann Althouse showed up. (Don’t ask. I might still be drunk.) I tried to link to What They Sort of Showed You.

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: That piece is so bad, and reads so much like what now passes for wit at Wonkette — I like to drink a lot of alcohol! Grrrrrr! Alcohollllll! That’s who I am! — that I would bet it’s new answers to old questions. Especially since I can’t find the original.

I’m surprised they don’t just draw dicks on faces.

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: Stinque. Nojo was already taken, and I have a Stinque account for geek use.

Since I can’t link to the comment directly, it’s a response to “that charlie sedarka”. But it hasn’t shown up, probably because East Coast Jack left for the night.

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: Oddly enough, I have a Wonkette “nojo” account in my password files, but it doesn’t seem to work, resetting it doesn’t shoot me any automated emails, and I’m pretty certain it’s not a leftover Gawker login.

Are they on their second post-Gawker commenting system? I don’t recall “Intense Debate” the last time I checked. A couple years ago.

Yeah, they went to this new system-with a commenter rating function, by the way-a couple months ago.

Not too bad, except the engine is shared by the mouth-breathers over at Brietbart’s site, resulting in the lamest trolling in the Western Hemisphere.

Some of the commenters are still pretty funny, though. I wish we could siphon some of them without getting banned.

@Yo! JNOV Raps!: That was one of my stops. Also, to reset my password there. (Intense Debate is a WP project.)

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: That’s professionally interesting — I’d never heard of it before, and all the other sites I visit use either Disqus or the new Facebook comments.

@nojo: Yeah. And it defaults to my Gravatar pic. Feh. Thing is, even though I’m logged into IntensePretense, BrandBullshit still doesn’t recognize me. I’m pretty done with that shit, unless I find another way to have trollface.

@Yo! JNOV Raps!: Gravatar is also a WordPress Joint.

@nojo: Yeah, figured as much. At least now I see all my comments awaiting moderation.

And fucking repeats. No edit button.

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: Well, I’m not hanging around anymore to see if they do. Time to vatch a moovie or sumptin’. (I did reply to one of your comments…)

I have no fucking clue about what is going on. This damn not-a-cold not-yet-bronchitis has shut off my brain anyway. Work projects are taking twice as long as they should.

Built a fire to take the chill off the house. Snow up in the mountains today. Saw a couple of flurries in town. The drought and the cold have about kilt everything out there.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ:
jamie dear, *I* too am kicked off the lamest of the lame. i wish i had a copy of the letter i wrote to layne sealing my fate….

and fuck you sidewise Word Press. and this time i will not run and tug on the hem of nojo’s and nick’s garment.
so i get this new machine and of course can’t log in anywhere with my old password, heaven forbid. so i got new ones. yay, it worked. there is a catch naturally. EVERYtime i log in they tell me its not valid and i have to apply for a new one. that works! until i log in again! and then it’s rinse, repeat all over again. and yes, i hit “keep me logged in” which makes them laugh and laugh.

@redmanlaw: feel better reds…..

@baked: check to see if your browser is set to accept cookies and remember browsing history…

what a den mommy! off in wonderland and STILL caring for her flock!!!
tell us what you’re up to!
and i’ll tell my geek what you said. (you didn’t think i could deal with “cookies” whatever they are, did you?)
what i am good at is scrabble! i miss our game!
to be resumed promptly upon your return?

Wonkette? This is some kind of geek pron?
