Charles Manson was set on fire in Corcoran State Prison in central California. According to recent tabloid reports, however, the pertinent details of this attempt on his life haven't yet been released. Over the next few weeks, you can expect to hear more information about the murder try.
It wouldn't be shocking to learn the former cult leader has made some serious enemies behind bars. Despite his advanced age of nearly 80, the lifelong con is still not exactly a model prisoner. You would think he would have gotten the hang of this prison thing by now, but he just can't seem to stay away from trouble. Although Manson's been mostly defanged as a serious threat to others, occasionally he is found to be in possession of illegal contraband, according to reports.
Every so often, he comes up for parole, but he's always of course denied. It will be interesting to learn who was behind the attack on Manson's life. It may have been anyone, even fellow inmates trying to make a name for themselves, by attempting to kill the notorious Charles Manson
I guess the adage "some people are too mean to die" is true.
A sample of what's to come.
Top or bottom? Sounds like a lover's quarrel.
Now c'mon. After all it was S'Mores night and perhaps one of the new inmates didn't understand the concept.
I hope it was a grease fire. That horrific mother fucker has been sucking up valuable oxygen for too long now. Death can't take Manson's ass soon enough.
Put Ted Nugent in Manson's cell with him.
This girl is on fire
R7, AGREED!!!! A nice pair, those two.
That was in 1984.
R7 is a jerk. Ted is not my favorite either but c'mon.
R11 is another nitwit here. What is with these pissy, yammering cunts who snark at nothings while proclaiming their ignorance with trumpets?
[quote]occasionally he is found to be in possession of illegal contraband,
r7 but isn't that nugent out of the country or dead?
Kill The Pig.
Why? He didn't kill anybody.
Nobody forced those women to do those disgusting things.
It's typical of you 'mos. You engage in all sorts of sick perverted behavior and get AIDS and then blame everyone else for being riddled with disease.
Oh, I almost forgot... I drugged and raped a child!
This happened in 1984. (83 or 84) This is old old news. jezzzzzz
(Elderthread, eldergay... time is on side.)
I went to get me a cold pop and then I thought somebody was barbequing. Then I saw the smoke. I said, "Dear Lord Jesus, it's a fire!"
If it's good enough for Michael Jackson......
Charlie probably never killed anyone but it doesn't really matter. He's still an evil, crazy maniac. If one of his fellow prisoners kills him it'll be a service to humanity.
It always amazes me how people can exhibit the self-same arrogance, hatred and propensity to violence as the people whose actions they claim to despise. Anyone that would wish being set on fire on anyway, or revel in the thought if it being done to another human being, is just as bad as Manson. The only difference between the two is that Manson actually carried out the actions he wished on others. But if you aspire to the same violence as he carried out, you're no better than him.
Interesting tidbit: Charles Manson has always leaned closer-to-gay on the "bi" scale than people believe. He was never really into the "Manson girls"; least not as much as he enjoyed buttfucking his boy-groupies (i.e. Paul Watkins and Bobby Beausoleil).
Charles allegedly has a big dick.
R16, a jury found him guilty and he's spending life in prison. It wasn't for shoplifting.
Burns can be quite painful. If he was set on fire, he could be in a condition worse than death.
He should have been committed to a mental institution at age 16 for life. He raped other boys when he was in reform school. He should have been institutionalized where big brawny orderlies could forcibly medicate him with injectable thorazine when he got out of line.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
