    Judge sends Martin Shkreli to jail for Facebook post

    https://www.cnbc.com/2017/09/13/shkr...tons-hair.html


    "An angry federal judge revoked the $5 million bond of convicted fraudster Martin Shkreli on Wednesday and ordered him jailed after ruling the notorious "pharma bro" was a danger to the public because of his offer on Facebook of cash for samples of Hillary Clinton's hair."
    XVI.8: Confucius said, "There are three things of which the superior man stand in awe. He stands in awe of the ordinances of Heaven. He stands in awe of great men. He stands in awe of the words of the sages. The mean man does not know the ordinances of Heaven, and consequently does not stand in awe of them. He is disrespectful to great men. He makes sport of the words of the sages."

    Another reason to forgo FB, Abner. It would be just a matter of time before you would request a lock of peloso and get into trouble.

    And peloso does mean hairy.

    No kidding, you can't go around advocating violence against people. Even if it's just for "hair". Like a scalping?


    Dumb should hurt.

    It's just impossible for me to generate any sympathy for this Shkreli guy. He seems like a total jerk.

    I think that he did specify that just a few strands of hair would do. I'm guessing that the motivation for doing this is to analyze the hair to discover what meds Hillary is on.

    Well, I did sign up for FB. I gotta say that I find it rather boring. I don't feel the need to post stuff like what I had for lunch or breakfast. Don't worry, I won't be requesting any pelosos any time soon.
