Prisoner Escapes Prison After Sending Fake Bail Email

_81961728_81961721

Neil Moore, a convicted fraudster in Wandsworth prison, used an illicit cell phone to concoct an email with bail instructions. Moore, 28, sent the email to prison staff who released him on March 10, 2015. Authorities didn’t realize what had happened until they went to interview him three days later. Moore, from Ilford, East London, eventually turned himself in.

He then emailed the prison’s custody inbox with instructions for his release.

The court heard Moore registered the bogus website in the name of investigating officer Det Insp Chris Soole, giving the address and contact details for the Royal Courts of Justice.

Prosecutor Ian Paton said: “A lot of criminal ingenuity harbours in the mind of Mr Moore. The case is one of extraordinary criminal inventiveness, deviousness and creativity, all apparently the developed expertise of this defendant”.

The judge, Recorder David Hunt QC, described the behaviour as “ingenious” criminality.

Moore had previously used four different aliases to commit fraud worth £1,819,000 in total.

This is hilarious.

Sonia Weiser via The Hairpin:

He pulled me close to him, his hips grinding up against my own. “I promise you,” he said. “I’m not into you because you remind me of my mother who was emotionally distant after my father died.” I kissed him, my heart pumping furiously now that he had answered one question that had been plaguing me all along.

“Are you sure?” I asked. “You’re not just saying that because you know it’s what I want to hear? If you are, just tell me. I’ll be fine with it. But honesty is really important to me.” He stopped my ramblings by covering my mouth with his hand. “I’m not just saying that,” he said, then dropped his hand to my waist. Before I could say anything, he added, his hot breath against my neck, “I washed my hands with soap and hot water just before this.

The Dunning-Kruger Effect

This was originally published on haeugene.tv.

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias wherein unskilled individuals suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their ability to be much higher than is accurate. This bias is attributed to a metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their ineptitude.

I’m doing good, thanks for asking.

That? That’s nothing. Yeah, I do that all the time. You think that’s something? You should have seen what I made last Thursday. Hoo boy. That was something.

Conversely, highly skilled individuals tend to underestimate their relative competence, erroneously assuming that tasks which are easy for them are also easy for others.

Yeah, I guess you can say they chose me for this project because they didn’t want to mess around. You know what they say – you want something done right…wait, how does that saying go, again?

Talking Acid, Feminism, and UFOs with Visionary Director Phil Mucci (Plus Torche’s Annihilation Affair Video Debut)

torche_stills11One thing I’m constantly trying to relay about next level communication is that it doesn’t happen with words, but rather through means of subjectively projected telepathic metaphor. In the vast majority of UFO contactee reports, one encounters similar stories about blackened psionic eyes that peer directly into the soul. Eyes that can project and receive pure information. Metaphorically of course, I’d argue that we’re unconsciously engaging in this pursuit with our increasingly art-centric lifestyles. Theses days, half of our experiences involve movies, video games, albums, celebrity sex fantasies, and cutesy kitten GIFS. The reason I’m mentioning this, for probably the bajillionth time, has to do with this interview I just did with the visionary music video director Phil Mucci (who’s films other films you can check out here, or read my top 5 list of here). I honestly knew very little about Phil when I stumbled on his work last fall, but through watching his subversive psychedelic shorts, I realized that I knew far more about him than I initially thought.… Read the rest

Missouri woman pleads guilty to assaulting doorbell pranksters.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A Springfield woman could get a 10-year prison sentencing for threatening boys who rang her doorbell and ran away.

Prosecutors say 32-year-old Ashley Crossland pleaded guilty on Feb. 17 to burglary, assault and unlawful use of a weapon after becoming angry because of a January 2014 prank.

A probable cause statement says Crossland tried to run one boy down with her van and punched another three times while holding a knife to his chest.

The Springfield News-Leader reports she was also charged with going to the home where the boys were having a sleepover and illegally entering the home.

One of the boys reportedly told police that Crossland came out of her home and began yelling at them as they ran away after they rang her doorbell. The boy said that after he turned a corner, he saw a van “driving crazy.”

Probable cause documents said the van tried to run the boy over, and backed him up against a fence.

An Epic Story of Cosmic, Earth and Human Transformation

The tag line for this story is a simple one… “One day on a Greek Island, and your view of the universe will change forever.” I have often thought this to be true. It might just be…

JOTUEvery so often a filmed series is created that brings an incredible amount of knowledge and insight; enough, some might say, to change the world… or at least your perspective on it. When the series JOURNEY OF THE UNIVERSE was being conceived, the creators sought just that… to develop an audio/video and written body of work that would change perspective and possibly change our collective thinking about the universe and the role we now play, as humans, in its destiny. Their efforts resulted in three major works: a book, an award-winning film and an expansive series of filmed interviews, conversations per se, with great minds. For me, this trilogy of work stands with such previous powerful works as Carl Sagan’s Cosmos and Joseph Campbell & the Power of Myth.… Read the rest
