Flat soda water

Following up on the stolen Twitter name:  "PayPal denies providing payment information to hacker who hijacked $50,000 Twitter username"  Some moderator has deleted all the relevant comments from the Reddit thread!

The shekels keep flowing:  "Howard Dean Opposes Iran Nuclear Deal"

"ScarJo Says Goodbye To Oxfam Over Her Deal With SodaStream" (by the inimitable Michael K):
"ScarJo, a human paper cup full of flat soda water that’s been sitting out on the counter for 4 days, is getting a giant check to be SodaStream’s global whore and so far the entire thing has turned out to be a giant PR nightmare."
"I’m sure it was a difficult decision for ScarJo and she carefully considered both options. ScarJo looked at the check she gets from OxFam and it took her a minute to realize there was no check from Oxfam since they’re not paying her. Then she looked at the check she gets from SodaStream and on it was a number larger than zero followed by a bunch of zeroes. Decision made! Some people are throwing shit at ScarJo for not getting her people to research SodaStream beforehand, but I say whatever. I’m sure ScarJo asked the truly important questions before signing on. She asked, “How much are you going to pay me? How far do you want me to deep throat that straw? How high do you want me to push up my tits?” Strangely enough, those are the exact same questions that John Travolta asks every potential employer."
