Absolute Psychopath with MBA and Millions of Dollars in Properties Collects Can Deposits Like a Hobo

August 10th, 2018 9:45am Comments off

Business Insider –

Lisa Fiekowski is a secret millionaire with an intriguing exercise routine: collecting trash.

Fiekowski owns more than $8 million worth of properties around New York City, including a $1 million co-op next to Prospect Park, the Post said, citing records. But at least one of her investments is uninhabitable, thanks partially to her unusual hobby — the Post reported that she had packed one residency with an old microwave, an umbrella, toys, carpets, and other trash.

Fiekowski has been collecting cans for about a decade, telling the Post she generates $20 to $30 for a few hours of work. She said she enjoys it because she can keep active, talk to her neighbors, and keep her area clean.

“Mostly, it’s physical activity,” she told the Post.

Meanwhile, Fiekowski has an MBA from the University of Chicago, and her husband makes about $180,000 a year, the Post said. She’s worked as a marketing analyst and a stockbroker, and her parents were high-ranking economists in the US government.

Articles like this blow my mind. This  woman is outside her fucking bird. Literal mental illness. I have so many problems with everything in this article. You have to be a certified, psychopathic lunatic to be so educated and well off to be collecting cans like that. It’s flat out homeless, hoarder level shit.

She’s doing this to keep busy? Get a hobby lady! There are so many ways to keep busy. Volunteer at a soup kitchen! Do works of charity! Come on, she’s an educated, rich, wealthy woman. She could be using her resources to do much better things. But no. They’re all going towards collecting cans like a slob.

It also makes me laugh that she’s whining about intolerance and being judged by neighbors. Ya think? I’m all for tolerance, but you can’t have riff raff like this lousing up the neighborhood. It’s one thing if you’re actually homeless and can’t help it, but being educated and wealthy – zero excuse. This lady has to deal with her consequences. Waaaah. My neighbors hate me. Wahhhh, my family thinks I’m crazy. Yes. They are all correct.

And I’d like to know who her husband is. That guys gotta be equally as nutty to be making 180k per year and putting up with this lunatic. If he’s not considering divorce, or faking his disappearance/death, he’s equally as insane. There’s hope dude, get out while you can.

Look, I’m as green as they get. I encourage recycling and removing plastic and cans from trash. If you want to clean up your neighborhood, go for it. But be real about it. Recycle all the shit and move on. Don’t store all that crap in multi-million dollar properties and spend hours making $30 from bottle/ deposit machines.

Which brings me to my next point. Fuck bottle and can deposits! It does not encourage recycling. Cess pool New York needs to cut out this nonsense immediately. All this does is lead to extra expenses for stores to maintain bottle and can deposit machines, and gives rise to people picking through trash to make a nickel. And rich people can’t be bothered returning these deposits and it ends up in the trash or curb side recycling anyways.

I actually have much respect for rich people living modestly, like a common person, but this is not within reason.

Guy Sues Rachel Ray’s Dog Food Company Because it Contains Glyphosate

August 8th, 2018 11:04am Comments off

People – On Monday, news broke that Rachael Ray‘s dog food company Nutrish is being sued by a man claiming the products contain the herbicide glyphosate and are therefore not “natural,” as advertised.

So Rachel Ray has this dog food company called Nutrish, which is supposed to be all natural, and some guy is suing them because it contains glyphosate (aka the active chemical in Monsanto’s RoundUp). Glyphosate is carcinogenic as fuck, even though it does not cause cancer in dimwitted Trump supporters according to the EPA.

I’m not a huge Rachel Ray fan, but I can’t hold her company responsible for this. Should “natural” foods not be sprayed with these shit pesticides? Yes. But the environment is 100% fucked. There’s no way to prevent it unless you grow your shit hydroponically underground in a bubble. Because If I’m an organic farm that decides not to use pesticides but the guy on the farm next door sprays his shit with X, Y and Z and guess what? There’s wind! The wind blows it onto my organic crops and now you’re eating cancer.

Glyphosate is in everything. It’s in you and me right now. This is because Monsanto is a piece of shit evil corporation, who can eat a dick,  promoted the use of this poison since the 1970s and spent billions of dollars buying up scientists saying it’s safe and genetically engineering crops to be resistant to it. It’s in everything and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.

But here’s what really made me chuckle:

“As animal lovers and humans, it goes without saying that we do not add pesticides to our products as an ingredient,” [Bobby Modi, vice president of pet food and pet snacks for The J.M. Smucker Company, Nutrish’s parent company] continued.

BAHAHAH. Thanks captain obvious…  I’d hope no company willingly adds pesticides to food ingredients.

Unfortunately, this case needs to be dismissed. It’ll set a bad precedent. We can’t sue every single company for every single contaminant because it’ll never end. I mean, yes, if Company X is deliberately poisoning shit and being deceptive to boost profits, by all means… Is Nutrish contaminated with glyphosate? Probably. Is is less contaminated than other dogfood which is not as natural and uses ingredients from fields treated with myriads of chemicals? Probably. Pick the lesser of two evils and move on with your life.

Jaggoff Ajit Pai Finally Decides to Overhaul FCC Comment System Only After He Corruptly Gets His Way

July 12th, 2018 12:42am Comments off

CNET – The Federal Communications Commission is reportedly mulling changes to its online comment system after the public comment period on net neutrality prompted 22 million fake submissions.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has informed two senators that he’ll propose rebuilding and re-engineering the commission’s electronic comment system “to institute appropriate safeguards against abusive conduct,” The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

“It is troubling that some bad actors submitted comments using false names,” Pai said in the letter, according to the Journal. “Indeed, like you, comments were submitted in my name and my wife’s name that reflect viewpoints we do not hold.”

This fucking guy is literally the worst of the worst.  After months of ignoring everyone calling out the FCC (including his own commissioners) on how crooked the public record commenting system is, he finally decides it’s time to overhaul it ONLY AFTER he got his way. Are you fucking kidding me? Literally turned a blind eye to the entire process (ie – the New York Attorney General opened an official investigation on these fake comments and Pai told him to go fuck himself). But wait!  Someone impersonated Pai and his with viewpoints he doesn’t agree with? Stop the presses! We need to fix this comment system! He sincerely hopes congress approves the funds. WAT? These players told you to fix this bullshit last year.

Fuck this guy. He’s literally as low as they get. Someone ought to shatter his dumb, giant Reese’s mug and shove the shards up his hypocritical asshole.
