Marketwatch (of all places!) has a detailed article on the Bolivian "Quick count" (essentially an exit poll) and the actual voting, as well as the overall trends for the returns in the election.

Not only is the late surge for Morales confirmed as perfectly legitimate and ordinary, but it wasn't not even a surge. A closer look at the numbers shows it to be a nearly perfect upward trend after an initial dip.

Maybe Bolivia should be its own thread now? Up to you guys.

Epstein's banker has also managed to *ahem* "commit suicide".

Also today... Toys R Us set to return - as some sort of ghoulish vampiric version of a toy store

Seriously it's creepy as fuck. The edits at the end of the article are something else:
Clarification: b8ta CEO Vibhu Norby shared a statement to io9 about the definition of “shopper cadence” in store monitoring:

“Shopper cadence doesn’t mean cadence as in voice. It means as in rhythm/frequency, as the word is used in a business context. We in no way monitor, track, or record what people say in the stores.”

Correction 12/5/2019, 9:00 a.m.: A previous version of this article asserted the sensors were monitoring and tracking voices when in fact they are monitoring the flow of where people are in the stores at any given time to see which items they are attracted to. Our post has been updated and we regret the error.

Update 12/5/2019, 10:30 a.m.: After making our correction we asked b8ta to further clarify how the data is being collected, how long it’s stored for, and whether shoppers are notified the technology is in use in the stores. They declined to comment.

Epstein and Trump's banker managed to "commit suicide".

It gives me a sort of grim amusement that Epstein is the one story where perfectly ordinary, more-or-less sane folks and absolute batshit raving conspiracy loons are all on the same page.

Like truepundit is basically a pizzagate site. But Grath's link is ordinary journalism (albeit not the most mainstream of publications), and they appear to be quoting genuine primary sources.

Hm, okay, there might be something funny going on here. The LA Mag story is certainly talking about the same person (and it broke the story originally)... but it doesn't actually reference Bowers as having a link to Epstein at all.

Presumably the claims made by truepundit are fairly easy to verify, and hopefully an actual mainstream site will try to do so now that the story is trending online.

Regardless, "Trump banker kills himself" is also a big story by itself anyway.

It's a bit overdue but Aussies are finally turning on Scott Morrison - and now it's like a dam breaking, with the entire country turning on him in a torrent of pent-up rage.

So much so, that the most popular tune of 2019's Christmas down under is an off-the-cuff song quickly laid down yesterday by The Chats frontman, called "I Hope Scott's House Burns Down".

Sex worker has raised over $1 million AUD in charitable donations ($700,000 USD) by sending free nudds to anyone donating to Australian bushfire relief

I’m sending nudes to every person who donates atleast $10 to any one of these fundraisers for the wildfires in Australia. Every $10 you donate = one nude picture from me to your DM. You must send me confirmation that you donated.

Kansas man wants to settle ugly custody battle with ‘trial by combat’ with Japanese swords
I now wish to give them the chance to meet me on the field of battle, where I will REND THEIR SOULS from their … bodies," Ostrom wrote in the filing, according to the Carroll Times Herald.


Well buddy, you just settled this case alright.
