    Is Ambien behaviour a real thing? A quick look on google says it might be.

    She's always on Ambien.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Yes. My brother used to take ambien on our annual lake Powell trips and my kids loved to wait for it to kick in so they could ask him questions and laugh at his crazy answers. The next day he never could remember any of it.

    Ambien will fuck a person up and make them say crazy things but it won’t make them write precise racist jokes.

    I had to quit taking it. One of the reasons was I would buy shit and say shit and even go drive to the store and have little recollection of it.

    I’m not buying Rosanne’s excuse though. She has been all aboard the altright Trump train for awhile.

    No one will believe Ambien as an excuse. Blaming Russian hackers on the other hand... now, that's a bingo!

    In other news, the Wayback Machine russia hack affected more than Ms. Reid. For example, archived pictures from my blog now include some fair-skinned ordinary schmoe instead of what I actually look like:

    Sure is. We kicked my mom out of our house after abusing Ambien for 3 years and not being willing to give it up. It makes you say stuff and do stuff that you wouldn't normally do.

    Here is how you are supposed to take Ambien:

    1. Get ready for bed.
    2. Take Ambien and go to sleep.

    Here is what happens with people that abuse Ambien:

    1. I'm not going to bed for 45 minutes. But Ambien takes too long to kick in, so I'll just take one now.
    2. Lays down an hour later.
    3. This pill isn't working, I'm going to take another.
    4. Did I take another pill? I don't remember, but I really should...so I will take another one now.
    5. Sit on the kitchen floor naked with the fridge door open watching "TV". (Staring at the open fridge)

    Wash...rinse...repeat.

    My wife is a physical therapist by training who in the past has worked a lot with patients who suffered a recent traumatic brain injury. One of her favorite sayings is "it's not just the head injury, it's the head that gets injured." I think this applies here. Yes, a drug can conceivably make someone do something they normally wouldn't. The problem in this case is that Barr has a long history of saying things just like this. So the excuse doesn't quite make it look right in her case. She isn't a nice person who suddenly did something out of character. She's always been nasty and trashy.

    That reminds me of a curious fellow I once knew in a singles ward many years ago. He was very smart and kind of an eccentric intellectual type who was really into Jewish history and religion. He was active LDS and taught gospel doctrine in the ward but liked to practice much of Judaism in his life at the same time. He didn't grow up in it as far as I know. He used to like to talk about how Judaism and Mormonism are almost completely compatible to be practiced together.

    In Rosanne's case, her family actively hid their Judaism, likely to try to fit in in a monolithic culture.

    Apparently, Rosanne was also Mia Maid president or something.

    **Siren call to random disgruntled ex-LDS to come now to educate us on how growing up Jewish in Utah in the 70s was even worse than it would have been in 1940s Europe, or some other way out there hyperbolic comparison.

    Yeah I've noticed that with the last couple of tweets I've posted. I wondered if it was a formatting issue with the browser I was using.

    Which letters are you deleting?

    So now there are two mormon ex-spies accused of spying for China in two weeks? This is bad for the brand.

    Bednar is apparently thumbing his nose at President Nelson's 5-day-old order to fast from social media for 7 days.

    I have a suspicion that whoever was running Nelson's Twitter account just happened to be going out on vacation. A command to fast from social media was the best way to get away from it all.

    Thanks for the update.

    Also, have you noticed that YOhio is not honoring the social media fast? You'd think YO would have a great day by simply following the prophet!

    BYU student gets his car booted, fights back, and gets sued by towing company for $500k.

    http://www.good4utah.com/news/local-...ovo/1225763196

    PROVO (News4Utah) -- A student in Provo is facing a $500,000 lawsuit, filed by University Parking Enforcement (UPE). UPE is a towing company, and it is not owned or operated by Brigham Young University.

    Carl Prince claims his legal battle with UPE started in an unmarked parking spot. Prince sued the towing company, citing it illegally withheld evidence.

    "I wanted to avoid going to court if possible, so I sent them a letter stating my intent to file a complaint based on those two allegations," said Prince.

    UPE refunded his parking ticket, but Prince still took them to court and won.

    "This case is about a young man who received a full refund because of a technical error in a statue," said UPE's attorney, Justin Heideman. "(He) decided that wasn't enough so he sued. He got paid, then he decided it wasn't enough, so he sued again."

    Prince says he started a Go Fund Me account to raise money for his court payments.

    "In 18 years I've never seen a plaintiff who appealed after winning because he didn't feel he won enough, and after he admitted he had no damage," said Heideman.

    Prince says he thought it was all over, until he was served papers, which claim UPE is suing him for defamation.

    "I said that hundreds of people can attest that UPE often crosses the line. They in their complaint state that these hyperlinks lead to Better Business Bureau and Yelp with a total of 30 reviews," said Prince. "They're stating that since 30 is not hundreds, that that is false, and therefore defamation."

    Prince went on to say that there are more than two hundred complaints against the towing company. In fact, Prince says the links don't lead to the BBB. They lead to Google and Yelp. These websites contain more than 200 reviews. Prince says he is not guilty of defamation. He insists these arguments are not valid.

    UPE claims Prince is destroying its reputation.

    "Now we're stuck dealing with him because he's following our employees, he's talking to the businesses and he's disparaging our reputation online," said Heideman.

    Prince says he's not just fighting for himself, he's fighting for others.

    "I'm just hoping this exposure perhaps motivates them to maybe rethink some policy, training and ultimately create a better environment in Provo," said Prince.

    UPE wants Prince to let it go; however, Prince says he only sued and appealed once. He would be done with the ordeal if UPE weren't suing him for defamation.
    And, lest you think this is a one-off, there is in fact a Facebook group entitled "University Parking Enforcement Sucks" dating back to 2010:
