CC Random thread

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Eric Schneiderman, New York’s attorney general, has long been a liberal Democratic champion of women’s rights, and recently he has become an outspoken figure in the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment. As New York State’s highest-ranking law-enforcement officer, Schneiderman, who is sixty-three, has used his authority to take legal action against the disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, and to demand greater compensation for the victims of Weinstein’s alleged sexual crimes. Last month, when the Times and this magazine were awarded a joint Pulitzer Prize for coverage of sexual harassment, Schneiderman issued a congratulatory tweet, praising “the brave women and men who spoke up about the sexual harassment they had endured at the hands of powerful men.” Without these women, he noted, “there would not be the critical national reckoning under way.”

Now Schneiderman is facing a reckoning of his own...

They did not report their allegations to the police at the time, but both say that they eventually sought medical attention after having been slapped hard across the ear and face, and also choked. Selvaratnam says that Schneiderman warned her he could have her followed and her phones tapped, and both say that he threatened to kill them if they broke up with him.

“Sometimes, he’d tell me to call him Master, and he’d slap me until I did,” Selvaratnam said.

“He started calling me his ‘brown slave’ and demanding that I repeat that I was ‘his property.’”

The abuse increased until Schneiderman was not only slapping her but spitting on her and choking her, she said.

“He was cutting off my ability to breathe,” she said.

Soon, “we could rarely have sex without him beating me.”

Long before I had my 69, I had a 68. Was an SS though so it had the chrome slot intakes on the hood.
Was Hugger Orange though.
I was 17 and I took my girlfriend to that movie in Cloverdale when it first came out in Canada in that car.
Hadn't thought of that in years, thanks.
Think that's weird?
When I finally sold that car, I bought a brand new black special edition, 77 Trans-am with gold trim.
Had no idea Smoky and the Bandit was on the way.
When it came out, took a different girlfriend, (it was the 70s, what can I say, I was a slut.), to a drive-in on the King George.

If so, I've driven that Camaro many times.

If you're not George C there's some amazing coincidences going on here...

Nope. I gave you my first name on a pm many moons ago, well 2016.
It's funny though when I saw that video I thought you must have been someone I knew, but
remembered I think your about 10/12 years younger.

Weird stuff then.

George had the same taste as you in cars... and movies.

He was a great mechanic... not a great driver/racer.

That was where I came in. :mex:

You most likely knew where the best quarter mile street races happened.

Not that any of us would do such a thing. ;)
Raced on the real track in Mission too though.

II should have been putting more on ice time in during off seasons but to be honest,
not many did back then. Nothing like today.
