    Inside Job, a film/documentary about the financial collapse in 2008.

    It shows the history before the collapse, what happened and how little has changed really.

    What surprised me was Clinton's administration being not much different to a Republican administration re: Wall street.

    A must for conspiracy theorists - you were right all along.

    Sometimes I watch things just to take my mind off other things and maybe put some perspective. I live in Canada so, watching this footage in Syria made me wonder how many luxuries in comparison. Like, my country is not devastated and I can freely bitch over internet science forums.

    The documentary is not gruesome like some. I saw one where a young Syrian teen had his innards hanging out and turned off.

    Freeway: Crack in the System

    Watched it today on Netflix. Very interesting to me as I remember the crack/cocaine flood of the 80s quite well. Not sure if Freeway is entirely on the up and up, but for the most part, I think he is.

    Its on youtube also, but the uploads are very recent.

    One documentary that I thought was both morbid and inspirational at the same time was


    I've read that starvation is one of the most painful was to die so imagine committing suicide by fasting. It reminded me of the dude supposedly holding his hand in the fire https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaius_Mucius_Scaevola

    The willpower to do such a thing...

    Thought Crimes - The Case Of The Cannibal Cop 2015

    Everyone should watch this documentary. It didn't really affect me personally as my fetish is watching creepy documentaries but if you use the internet it's a must see.

    The court case of a cop who chatted about kidnapping and cooking women on a fetish site.

    Interesting character story. Only got to try real 'shine once, back in '78. I know it came from that area, but cant say it was popcorns brew. The person who shared some with me made a trip back home once a year to visit relatives and brought back a jug each time; doling out sips to friends until the next trip. I would love to have a jug of my own to treat friends too.

    On other boards I've received unnerving private messages of which I don't respond... Anyway, if you have interweb you might like to see this: http://ffilms.org/talhotblond-2012/

    Thomas Montgomery, a married father of two young daughters, gets seduced by the world of online gambling and chat rooms where a virtual romance and sexual obsession ultimately leads to the murder of an innocent man.
