If you’re to believe Alfred Pirri Jr of Ridge, New York the Dating App Cheek’d somehow stole his dating app idea from 2008, and made it into a patent worth million. He believes that his idea, shared with a therapist somehow made it to Lori Cheek, one of the creators of the app. So he’s suing her in court for over 1 Million dollars.
Here’s the problem: Lori Cheek has never met the man, nor his therapist.
By his own admission in the lawsuit, Mr. Pirri is not mentally well and sought treatment at a mental health facility, where he claims he then shared his idea with one of the therapists there. He claims that the therapist then shared the idea with Ms. Cheek, and years later she became famous in 2015 when she was on Shark Tank with the idea.
Of course, he has no proof that this happened — and filed the suit almost 10 years after he claims he had the idea.
Cheek is adamant that she’s never met his therapist, who currently lives in Texas, and that she would have no reason to.
However, despite this, Mr. Pirri is pursuing the case, hoping that someone believes his insane story that his therapist, somehow stole the idea and shared it with Cheek who then turned it into a multi-million dollar idea. The therapist, of course, also denies this and had no reason to share, as she is neither involved in the business (and again, as Cheek pointed out, don’t even know each other, or live in the same state.)
Trans-Racial Rachel Dolezal Arrested for Welfare Fraud
Former NAACP official Rachel Dolezal became infamous for appropriating Black culture. She changed her name to Nkechi Diallo in 2016, a year after she went on television and proclaimed that even though she was born Caucasian, she identified as Black. She resigned from the NAACP after her parents revealed that she was white, and had been lying for a number of years.
Her name slowly disappeared from the media once more scandalous news took over (namely, a reality television star becoming a president). Dolezal’s name is back in the news once again though, as she is being charged with welfare fraud.
According to The Washington Post, Dolezal stands accused of stealing $8,847 in food and child care assistance dating back to August 2015. Court documents that were originally obtained by KHQ-TV can be viewed here.
The investigation into the fraud began in March 2017 when an investigator from the Washington Department of Social and Health Services discovered Dolezal had written and published a book. She is facing up to 15 years in prison.
The investigators researched the book’s publisher and learned “a typical contract would include payments of $10,000 to $20,000 as advances against later royalties,” according to documents.
Until now, Dolezal had been reporting an income less than $500 a month, which came from child support payments.
She hasn’t said if she plans to go to prison identifying as Black or White.
Hawaii Emergency Employee Had Issues with Reality, Thought North Korea was Attacking
Employee who sent erroneous missile alert had 10 years of performance issues and had confused real world and practice drills twice before. The preliminary report released on Tuesday from the Federal Communications Commission details the events leading up to a false missile alert sent to mobile phones and television and radio broadcast stations in the state of Hawaii earlier this month.
According to WaPo:”This mistake began when a night-shift supervisor decided to test incoming day-shift workers with a spontaneous drill, the FCC report stated. The supervisor managing the day-shift workers appeared to be aware of the upcoming test but believed it was aimed at the outgoing night-shift workers. As a result, the day-shift manager was not prepared to supervise the morning test, the FCC said.”
According to the FCC report released Tuesday, this worker is the only one who apparently did not understand it was a drill, and this wasn’t the first time.
Rock Legend Animal Dies Aged 66
TRIBUTES have been flooding in from all across the world following the death of Animal, the legendary drummer with rock outfit Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem.
Fans of the supergroup were shocked to learn of the passing of the iconic percussionist, who passed away at just 66 following a short illness. Remaining band members Dr. Teeth, Janice, Zoot and Floyd Pepper took to the group’s Facebook fan page to announce the sad news earlier today.
“We will never forget you, brother,” read the statement from the band.
“You kept rocking ’til the very end. Be at peace now, and we’ll play again in that great muppet theatre in the sky”.
Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem had been performing together for several years before their breakout performance on the Muppet Show in 1975. The band were invited to continue as resident artists for the show, but it was Animal’s trademark intensity that won him the hearts of fans all across the world. His popularity won him appearances in every Muppet movie released, with his last role in 2014’s Muppets: Most Wanted.
“Although he had already been diagnosed with threadbaring syndrome, you would have never known he was sick,” said Fozzie Bear, speaking about the filming of M:MW.
“I’d ask him if he was feeling alright, and he’d just say ‘ANIMAL!!! HAAAAH!!!!’. That was… that was just Animal, you know?”
Other Muppets were quick to add their own tributes to their deceased colleague, with Miss Piggy stating that Animal was “a driving force in her life”, and the Swedish Chef adding that Animal always knew “how tee bork de bork”.
