scotto monkeypulse

7020 - I have two powerful turbine engines.

It can take just one good thing to cancel out a dozen bad things. In my little universe, anyhow.

Random Scotto factoid: I actually like Puddle of Mudd. So sue me.

The flux of fortune seems to be going more my way with the full beard. I'm getting better luck, people all around me are having worse fortune.

A superstitious person might see some sort of correlation.

I am a man of science.

But I'm keeping the beard.

For Now.

Seventeen people have been arrested as agents dismantled two well-known Central Florida heroin trafficking organizations. The arrests were part of Operation Moto Soto, a joint investigative effort with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Heroin Task Force.

The organizations had been operating in Central Florida for a number of years and had a combined control of an estimated 25 percent of the street level heroin distribution in the east Orange County area. The rings distributed more than two kilos of heroin per month, enough for approximately 20,000 doses of the drug.

More than 40 agents representing numerous local, state, and federal agencies apprehended 18 defendants, including all of the top figures in the organizations. Additionally, more than $100,000 in assets was seized during the operation and is pending forfeiture.

Operation Moto Soto included the cooperation of agents with the DEA, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, and FDLE.

Oh, I made a mistake! It's Melissa, not Alyssa! No wonder she was confused. D'oh.

Only about a third of Americans believe that Charles Darwin's theory of evolution is a scientific theory that has been well supported by the evidence, while just as many say that it is just one of many theories and has not been supported by the evidence. The rest say they don't know enough to say. Forty-five percent of Americans also believe that God created human beings pretty much in their present form about 10,000 years ago. A third of Americans are biblical literalists who believe that the Bible is the actual word of God and is to be taken literally, word for word.

I tell you, dear journal, that the more I think things are, the less so they become. I thought that there was a firm majority in one of those camps.

Subject: Indoctrimat: Googlewhack


Just thought you'd like to know, you're officially a googlewhack. Trying anything to avoid work, I typed "Scotsmen Bosons" into the world's favourite search engine and hoopla - you are the one and only.

I'd make you a badge or a plaque to commemorate, but let's face it, everyone will be jumping on the bandwagon now.

Love the Bill Hicks quote on your bio.

Have fun,

FDLE’s Computer Crime Center (FC3) with the assistance of the Tallahassee Police Department capped a monthlong investigation with the arrest of Jonathan Stettler, 25, of Tallahassee on Nov. 22. Stettler, a state employee, was charged with one count of computer pornography.

The investigation was initiated after the Green Cove Springs Police Department received a tip. Working from this tip, an undercover FDLE agent posing as the father of a 14-year-old boy communicated online with Stettler who expressed a desire to sexually exploit the child. Three weeks ago, Stettler was followed to a local hotel where he expected to meet the father and son. Stettler left the location, however, prior to making contact with the undercover agent.

Two weeks ago, Stettler began communicating again with the undercover agent who at this time was posing as a different 14-year-old boy. Once again, Stettler indicated a desire to personally meet and sexually exploit the boy.

After communicating several times with the undercover agent, Stettler agreed to meet who he thought was the 14-year-old boy on Monday afternoon at an apartment complex on Tharpe Street. Following his arrival, Stettler was taken into custody.

FDLE, the Tallahassee Police Department and the Green Cove Springs Police Department are all members of the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. This task force is one of 45 federally funded task forces nationwide created solely to investigate Internet crimes against children that include the online sexual exploitation of children and child pornography.

“This is another example of why parents should take time to discuss Internet safety with their children,” said Special Agent Bob Breeden of FDLE’s Computer Crime Center. “Many parents have no idea who their children are communicating with online. Predators are using the Internet now to communicate with young people, often over a several month period, to win their trust and convince them to meet face to face often with tragic results.” - tips for keeping your children safe online.
