I heard of a case where this happened. An affluent older lawyer was taking out her young clerk for lunch. He was like 25. When the bill came, she took it, much to the evident shock of the server, and put her Amex gold card down. The clerk leaned over and stage-whispered, “Oh, Mummy, you treat your little boy like a Read more

The last 4/8 years?” Does she not know how long it was, or is she making a point about how long it felt like?

Unlike vodka, different gins taste SERIOUSLY different. Gin can be so highly flavoured that some bartenders consider certain gin brands “gin liqueurs” rather than true gins, because they’ve just got that much flavour. Even a piker should be able to tell a Hendrick’s from, say, a Beefeater, even in a G&T.

How do people make decent cocoa, if not with one of these?

A competent bartender could have taken it away and diluted it with ice and or soda, if he was going to charge her.

Many people Do eat swans, though. In Vancouver many years ago there was a case where an elderly man was seen grabbing swans from Lost Lagoon and stuffing them in a garbage bag. He was tackled by a nearby cyclist, while another blew her whistle for the police, who eventually arrived and arrested the guy. He had a whole Read more

An anonymous tip to a local food critic (an actual critic, not the gushy society pages types) would go a long way in this case. Serious critics in big cities take their jobs seriously.

No Paltrow? No Jennifer Grey? Didn't he also date SJP?

When I worked at Denny’s under the Worst Manager In The World, you got a drink and a side salad free. I was 19 and 5'2" and I’d have a diet coke and a side salad every day and not order anything else, so after a few weeks the manager told us we had to order something or we couldn’t get our free pop and $3 side salad.

I had accounts on all of these except YikYak, I think.

She’s very clever, multilingual, and probably carrying millions in cash. She was the logistics person, so I don’t doubt after his first arrest she arranged for several hidey-holes in various places around the world under assumed names. Read more

I’m not so sure. She’s clever, she’s a pilot, and she has limitless amounts of cash thanks to selling her house to Epstein’s company. You can go a long way on that. She also has friends with a vested interest in hiding her. She was the logistics person in the organization. I’d bet she has boltholes all over the world, Read more

She knows what happened to Epstein. Maybe it’s already happened to her. These are very murky circles. Live by the sword, die by the sword. I used to think she was just hopelessly in love with him but now I see it was a mutual series of crimes entered into by a knowing adult.

You solder jingle bells to the metal parts. When I worked at Starbucks we put marbles in the metal travel mugs, otherwise we’d have lost some every single day at every single location.

I used to go to a diner in Vancouver so cheap they didn’t even buy salt and pepper shakers. They used empty airline-sized booze bottles. I guess the owners were big travelling drinkers or something. Anyway, one day this guy comes in, sits at a table near the back. Looks around shiftily. Orders something really Read more

The Epstein case is in no way over. Maxwell shut down her nonprofit basically the instant he was arrested, sold her house to one of his companies, and hasn’t been seen in public since.
