Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


There are multiple instances of self-contradictory allegations in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s second amended complaint in his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. Here’s one of my favorites. In his allegation of Count I of the complaint, that’s the actual RCIO count, TDPK writes this—ECF 135-164_165TDPK defines “all relevant times” November, 2011, through February, 2014.ECF 135-162TDPK named the following defendants—ECF 135-Count1Notice that Ace of Spades is one of the named defendants. Thus, one of the allegations TDPK makes in Count I is that Ace of Spades participated in the alleged RICO enterprise at all relevant times, i.e., beginning in November, 2011.

Now, take a look at what he writes about Ace of Spades in the section he had the audacity to label STATEMENT OF FACTS.ECF 135-92TDPK wants the court to believe that Ace of Spades participated in the imagined RICO enterprise for six months before he joined it.

Uh, huh.

“[W]hen a complaint contains inconsistent and self-contradictory statements, it fails to state a claim.”  Hosack v. Utopian Wireless Corp., Case No. 11-CV-00420-DKC, ECF No. 15 (D.Md. 2011) at 12. And the example above is but one of many in TDPK’s second amended complaint.

popcorn4bkIt will be interesting to see what mix of bizarre legal theories and bogacious “facts” Brett Kimberlin will try to spin together for his omnibus opposition to the defendants’ motions to dismiss his second amended complaint. His magnum opus is due on 8 December.

Stay tuned.

 

Rosetta’s Comet Stinks


ESA reports that Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko stinks. Analysis of data sent back by Rosetta shows that the comet is made up of water, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide. It also contains ammonia (NH3), methane (CH4), methanol (CH3OH), formaldehyde (CH2O), hydrogen sulphide (H2S), hydrogen cyanide (HCN), sulphur dioxide (SO2), and carbon disulphide (CS2).

The perfume of 67P/C-G is quite strong, with the odour of rotten eggs (hydrogen sulphide), horse stable (ammonia), and the pungent, suffocating odour of formaldehyde. This is mixed with the faint, bitter, almond-like aroma of hydrogen cyanide. Add some whiff of alcohol (methanol) to this mixture, paired with the vinegar-like aroma of sulphur dioxide and a hint of the sweet aromatic scent of carbon disulphide, and you arrive at the ‘perfume’ of our comet.

Yuck.
