    Last night on the train we got the standard 'I need to raise $24 to get home can you help?'

    ** used to be less ..... go Brandon ....... **

    Works on some, not those who have seen it ten thousand times. GS sounds exactly the same to me. Details are different but no matter how you wrap a turd it still stinks.

    I have to admit though, this medical angle is slicker than his earlier pleas.
    Unfortunately for him, only someone who hasn't known him for long could fall for it. And I don't know how many new listeners he has.

    I don't know what's sadder, his relentless begging, the fact he's still a thing, or the fact that people are still open to contributing to him.

    Does he have a GoFundMe page or are they on to his grift ?

    You gotta realize that, at this point, Gene has a following that is almost logic-proof and gullible well beyond the ken of folks like you and me. These are people with cabinets full of Sham Wows, Slap Chops and such.

    the latest on his money woes!

    On Tuesday, a heart surgeon conducted an angioplasty and installed a stent (Boston Scientific Synergy XD) in my left coronary artery.

    He also prescribed blood thinners (Plavix and low-dose aspirin) to help clear out blockage in the right coronary artery and my legs. In addition, he will install a stent in my left leg in the near future.

    I have to take Plavix for a year, which he said should be sufficient to clear out much of the blockage. He also made it clear that my life is not in danger and, no, I don’t need open heart surgery, although he did mention a pacemaker as a possibility if drugs don’t do the job (which he doesn’t expect). But if it came to that, I’d definitely seek another opinion.

    I will obviously have to take care with my diet, and continue to maintain a healthy weight. Hopefully I’ll be in much. better shape by the end of 2022.

    In the meantime, nothing is interfering with my work schedule.

    Our recent server update has pretty much eliminated service slowdowns, and more and more people are visiting my sites and downloading The Paracast.

    The server upgrade, higher rent, plus all the other price increases of recent months have really drained cash. I’m sure most of you are feeling it.

    But if you able to provide a little financial help, as always I appreciate your donations, whatever you can send. And I know it’s not easy.

    Here’s how to send a payment:

    As for me I'm thinking maybe he should take his head out of his ass , but that's my opinion if not consensus .
