Did you turn off preview on the 3rd edition just recently?


Not that I'm aware of.

interesting. I was wondering if there are too many "add to cart" that actually don't purchase, whether Amazon might stop preview temporarily.
thinking people are reading it and deciding not to purchase. Or something.
You never know how the AI that tracks the universe is going to decide what's the best way to manipulate human behavior, to make purchases happen.
Basically: the computers are trying to force "buy"

Imagine every little keyclick you do, being sucked up and used to decide how to use it to force "buy"
Not predict "buy"
Force "buy"
USA economic success: some think it's dependent on forcing behavior, rather than randomizing behavior more.
It's like a sad version of the 1970's "Mad Men"...except run with more software, more computers, tighter feedback loop from human behavior to forcing future behavior.

I believe the Cooper metaverse has fully aborbed Bruce Smith.
Just noticed that when I search for DB Cooper on Amazon, they have a list of "actors" filter on the left.

Above Robert Duvall, is Bruce Smith (for Bruce's role in a documentary I guess)

Who would have thought Bruce Smith would ever be on a list with Robert Duvall..

I may have done something like that, Doc. I've clicked on "cart" a few times to see why there are "items" in it.

Smith: "Welcome to the vortex."

Duvall:  "Vortex? You think this is a vortex? This is fuckin' Disneyland!"

I was thinking Bruce could be the photo journalist like in Apocalpyse Now, if there's going to be a "Cooper Vortex" movie with Tina, Bruce and Duvall. (the real Tina maybe plays the mother of the Tina in the movie). Bruce plays himself. Duvall could actually play himself too..i.e. the character in the movie is actually Duvall. Hell, screw it, Tina will play Tina too.
There's no straight timeline, it fades in and out from 1960 to 2025. All with the same actors.


The opening scene has Duvall with dudeman's line above, in a bar at Coopercon 2025..
and Bruce stares off in the distance and his line is:

Bruce, Journalist: "One through nine, no maybes, no supposes, no fractions. You can't travel in space, you can't go out into space, you know, without, like, you know, uh, with fractions - what are you going to land on - one-quarter, three-eighths? What are you going to do when you go from here to Venus or something? That's dialectic physics."

First rush of the scene with a stand-in (Dennis Hopper) playing Bruce

I think later in the movie, Bruce is explaining to Tina:
"There's only love and hate."
You either love somebody or you hate them."

Kermit, Shutter, this may be for you.  About 20 seconds in we see some of the passengers get off the plane.  Geoff Gray mentions and Army Sergeant coming back from Vietnam.  His uniform looks very dark to me (shirt), he is holding his coat that would normally be darker than the shirt.  His rank is on his sleeves, and his collar has some sort of insignia.  It looks just a little off for Army, but does not look exactly Air Force either.  Can some of you guys take a look at it?  It may very well be Army, but from what I've seen of 1970's era uniforms, the shirt would be lighter.  It might be the camera angle.  Just a tidbit, but I'm curious.  The stripes look like they angle up (Air Force) not down (Army).  It is definitely not a Marine, and unlikely Coast Guard.  I'm guessing US Air Force, but could he have been Canadian?

Would one of the computer whizzes on this site please post a tutorial on how to set up clickable links here?

I post it so anyone who visits can see it, not just members. Anyone can take the dashes off and cut and paste. Here is clickable link.

Better way to do it is above. Then can click on it a couple times till all selected (3 clicks?).. copy/paste into browser (ctrl-c/ctrl-v)
You apparently want to disable hyperlink recognition by the forum software, so it's visible (but not clickable) to people not logged in.
put it in a code block (the # icon "Insert Code" ...kind of like "Insert Quote")
