Internet Explorer.

https://www.npr.org/2021/05/22/99934367 ... next-year
After long years of palliative care, Internet Explorer has reached the end its life, Microsoft says.

The much-reviled 26-year-old web browser once dominated the internet, but never shook its reputation as the slow, buggy net-surfing option.

Explorer, preceded in death by similarly reviled Microsoft icons Hotmail and Clippy, is survived by Microsoft Edge, the next-generation browser Microsoft first put out in 2015.

Need to put a stake in its heart, remove its head, stuff its mouth with wolf's bane, burn all to ashes which must be scattered upon a moving body of water under a crossroads, then nuke it from orbit.





Only way to be sure.

Shinzo Abe, former Prime Minister of Japan, killed at age 67 in shooting attack as he delivered campaign speech
Japan's former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was shot as he gave a campaign speech Friday in western Japan and airlifted to a hospital, but the country's national public broadcaster NHK said later that he had succumbed to his injuries. Multiple Japanese and international news outlets cited officials from Abe's political party and the regional hospital where he was treated as confirming his death.

Local fire department official Makoto Morimoto said Abe was in cardiopulmonary arrest, or CPA, meaning he was not breathing and his heart had stopped, even as he was airlifted to the hospital.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno told reporters that police had arrested a male suspect at the scene of the attack.

Underrated. Classic character actor, one of the good guys even when he played bad guys.

As a Very Wee Spud, I remember watching a movie on one of those "oldies" channels. Two Very Important Actors [Tony Curtis and Dean Martin – Ed.] decide the best way to get some ass around their wives, or impress their wives to get their asses, is to pretend they are FBI agent. They even tattoo their feet. [College Professor Curtis has a student kiss him as his wife walks in. It was innocent, but she wants a divorce. His friend convinced him that he claims he is an FBI agent and that was part of his cover. – Ed.]

It is weirder than it sounds. Anyway, the CIA, FBI, and KGB find out about it.

Larry is a KGB agent who captures them and interrogates them after he hops them up on "the drugs."

"Daaaaawid" he kept saying to "David" to try to get the non-existent information out of him. Frustrated, he threatens to put him in a submarine, "go down deep in ocean," and "David" never come back.

"David" and Idiot Friend wake up in the basement of a building, think it is a Soviet submarine, and try to sink it.

"Daaaaaaawid!"

[Who's that Lady? – Ed.]



But no Larry. :(

His wife clearly left Frank Sinatra for failing to stop an assassination, but before she decided to steal a lot of money from a bank. Fortunately, she stopped at a hotel.

In the rain.

The Wikipedia page of Who Was That Lady? claims that contemporary reviews were mostly good and that the film was popular. This proves that everybody in 1960 was a fucking idiot.

Strokin' Joe was around then.

He says it is based on his life. He was, you know, a chemistry professor at Columbia University where he chained himself to Washington Monument with Nelson Mandela.
