Quote:Bette Nesmith Graham invented the first correction fluid in 1956. She offered the product to IBM, and unexpectedly, the company declined her offer.

Graham sold the fluid for 17 years from her house. By 1968, the product was profitable, and in 1979 she sold the royalties to the Gillette Corporation for $47.5 million.

According to Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), the Liquid Paper contains solvent naphtha, resins, titanium dioxide, mineral spirits, dispersants, and fragrances, which make the small Liquid Paper bottle quite expensive.

This begs a philosophical question. Is the darkness of death merely a white out into a new expression of life?

I'm sure Liquid Paper is somehow raciss even though it was invented by lefties.

RE: New Grim Reaper Death Thread - GoodOwl - 12-17-2021 11:49 AM

Henry Orenstein, 98 (born Henryk Orenstein; October 13, 1923 – December 14, 2021) was a Polish-American toymaker, professional poker player, and entrepreneur who resided in Verona, New Jersey. A survivor of the Holocaust who came to the United States as a refugee after the war, he held more than 100 patents, including for the Transformers toyline. He made a fortune as a toy designer and manufacturer, and was inducted into the New Jersey Inventors Hall of Fame. He is a member of a highly distinguished Jewish American family which includes his niece Lili Bosse, noted philanthropist and former mayor of Beverly Hills, California.

In addition, he has played poker professionally in the United States for years, and in 2008 he was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame because of his consistent record and winnings.

Orenstein and two brothers, Fred and Sam, survived the Holocaust. Their parents were murdered by Nazis in 1942, and their brother, Felix, and sister, Hanka, died during their final days of captivity in separate concentration camps at the end of the war. He emigrated to the United States aboard the USS Fletcher, a destroyer used to transport refugees. He joined their uncle on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

Initially finding work with the Libby's canned food company, one day Orenstein noticed a bride doll in a department store window display, on sale for $29.95. (He has said this would be equivalent to $200 in the early 21st century). He decided that he could make one that was more affordable. He became a toy manufacturer. After gaining success with his first dolls, he earned his first million dollars and founded Topper Toys. It produced such well-known toys as the "Suzy Cute" line of miniature dolls and the Johnny Lightning line of model cars.

Orenstein is credited by former Hasbro CEO Alan Hassenfeld as "the catalyst" for Transformers existing: the man who convinced Hasbro to buy these funny looking Diaclone and Micro Change toys and repackage them as Transformers. He holds more than 100 other patents. Aside from Transformers, the best-known of these inventions is U.S. Patent 5,451,054: a device to detect and display hole cards in poker games.

In a bid to make televised poker championships more interesting for the audience, Orenstein devised a way in which the players' face-down cards could be seen by the audience: by cutting a window into the tables at each player and having a piece of glass with a camera under it, the audience would be able to better appreciate the game play, while not disturbing the setting for the players. NBC Sports President of Programming Jon Miller said that Orenstein is "single handedly responsible for the success of poker today."

Orenstein was the creator and an executive producer of the Poker Superstars Invitational Tournament on FSN. He also produced the popular TV Show High Stakes Poker, which ran from 2006 to 2007 and 2009 to 2011; old episodes can be seen in the United States on GSN.

As of 2009, Orenstein's live poker tournament winnings exceed $200,000. He was a 2008 inductee into the Poker Hall of Fame. Orenstein was also inducted into the New Jersey Inventors Hall of Fame.

He won the $5,000 Seven-card stud tournament at the 1996 World Series of Poker (WSOP), earning $130,000 by defeating fourth-place T. J. Cloutier, third-place Cyndy Violette and runner-up Humberto Brenes. Orenstein twice had finished in the money in the $10,000 WSOP no limit Texas hold 'em main event: 12th in 1993 and eighth in 1995.

He came in seventh in the $2,500 Seven Card Stud event at the 2005 United States Poker Championship. Despite being the oldest competitor (at age 80), he won his first round of NBC's National Heads-Up Poker Championship against one of the best cash-game players in the world, Chip Reese. Orenstein lost in the second round to John Hennigan.

His Book: I Shall Live: Surviving Against All Odds 1939-1945 (1987), a memoir of his experiences during the Nazi Holocaust and his survival in five concentration camps.

I was literally just listening to this tape yesterday...

Kangol Kid, 55, American hip-hop songwriter (UTFO), dies of Stage 4 colon cancer

Artist: U.T.F.O. (Untouchable Force Organization)
Album: U.T.F.O.

The members of UTFO were the first breakdancers to appear on The Phil Donahue Show.

Artist: Roxanne Shanté (Lolita Shanté Gooden)
Track: "Roxanne's Revenge" (12")
1984 Pop Art Records




Here's the notorious one-take, on the spot, improvised recording(freestylin' for 4 and a half mins!) that took place in the queensbridge projects in marley marl's apartment. This is the one people heard first in 1984. Roxanne recorded it off the top of her head between laundry cycles. The video version above it is the studio recorded version they had to make after being sued by U.T.F.O. for copyright infringement.




Artist: The Real Roxanne (with U.T.F.O.)
Album: U.T.F.O.
Track: The Real Roxanne(Elease Jack who was soon replaced by Adelaida Martinez)
1985 Select Records




This is how is ended, after 25 to upwards of 100 "Roxanne" records...

Artist: The East Coast Crew
Track: "The Final Word - No More Roxanne (Please)"
1985 CHIT Records

Ah, yeas...peaceful Los Angeles, home of tranquility, flowers, fairies and unicorns...but perhaps they should ban and register/control all knives since knives apparently seem to spontaneously kill on thier ownsome:

Drakeo the Ruler, 28, Dead from Stabbing During L.A. Festival

Quote:L.A. rapper Drakeo the Ruler is dead after a stabbing at the Snoop Dogg-headlined Once Upon a Time festival concert.

LA rapper Drakeo The Ruler was reportedly stabbed in the neck at “Once Upon A Time In LA” festival earlier tonight.

He was backstage around 8:30 PM when a fight broke out -- and during the altercation, he got stabbed ... according to law enforcement sources

We're told LAPD, California Highway Patrol and the fire department responded, and Drakeo was rushed to a hospital -- but multiple sources tell us he died from his injuries.

Silly rabbits, they should have sent a social worker to respond, everyone knows that police and other "traditional" responders can't help anyone, a'ight? Get "Gov" Newsome on it, stat!

Quote:There are reports he was stabbed in the neck, but we haven't confirmed that yet. We're told cops are investigating and will try to interview all artists and their entourages who were in the area when the fight started.

Cops investigating? Naw, get the social workers out there to enroll the entourages in "services" and "programs" funded by the gubmint--that's the only thing that can "help".03-shhhh

I got to know him and a daughter of his in the early 90's. He was very humble with a good sense of humor and easy to talk with. We didn't see eye to eye on politics per se, but he was truly a delightful person and a great conversationalist. He'll be missed for a lot of reasons among which was his "informal" statesmanship and a voice of reason. The door is even more wide open for Chinese presence in Africa now.

Interesting. In the early 2000's I was introduced to F. W. De Klerk. I found him to be a very modest but smart gentleman. It was an enjoyable evening.
