(Update 2: I'm back online, and will be logging on sporadically throughout the day to answer some more questions and follow up on some old ones. Thank you for your patience!
Update! I love your questions! There are so many of them and they are all great and my fingers are itching to answer them all. Unfortunately I have been typing rapid-fire for 90 min straight and have run out of steam. But I will be back tomorrow to tackle some of the rest! Thank you so much!)
My book Unorthodox: A Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots was the inspiration for the new Netflix series. I was raised in the Satmar Hasidic community in New York. My marriage was arranged when I was 17 years old, and I had a son at 19. I left when he was 3 years old. I can tell you all about what it was like to grow up as a part of the Satmar Hasidic community, my escape, and my life in Berlin now, as well as what it was like to have a TV series made from my life story.

Today's introduction, "I would like to have maybe Dr. Fauci or Deb come up and say..."
Perhaps she asks to be referred to as Deb or Deborah but it's been getting under my skin since these briefings started.
I just can’t get over how adorable he is in the documentary about the Mandalorian. So humble! Do you want him to take more responsibilities or rather create more awesome content?
Whats your opinion on the recent branding of women as Karen? I know this is directed at certain annoying women but on a whole i feel its going too far and if you see the public freakout page its mostly karen this and karen that. where as blokes who act like apes get no mention of a certain male name. How do women with the name karen feel about this?
I’m a big found footage fan and this is one that gets brought up a lot so I’ve wanted to see it for a while now. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find it anywhere but it was recently added to Tubi so I was able to watch it today. I just got done watching it a minute or two ago as I’m writing this so you’re getting my unedited initial thoughts.
Overall, I thought it was really well-done, creepy and has something that other found footage filmmakers can learn from because it makes sure to properly set up its story and characters firstly. Too many found footage films just throw you into a situation with characters that you don’t care about and thus a movie that suffers from a lack of tension. With this film, though, the small cast allows for most of them to be fully developed and for the audience to get to know them.
The script also really delves into the tragic drama of Alzheimer’s and how it affects those involved so you’re invested before things even get creepy. And they really... keep reading on reddit ➡
On November 2, 2001, neighbours of Loyd Courtney - a fingerprint expert for the Fort Worth Police Department - and his wife Agnes noticed that Loyd had, uncharacteristically, not left for work. The police arrived at 5:30 p.m to perform a welfare check, and discovered a gruesome scene: Loyd and Agnes had both been beaten to death in their home. The murder weapons included four cast-iron skillets - some used with such force that they had broken apart - and a knife. Between them, the two victims had sustained thirty-two blunt force injuries and twenty-seven stab wounds. A typed note was found pinned to Loyd's thigh with a paring knife, reading "this is what I learned in prison" and implying that the killing was revenge for Loyd's work for the police department. Detectives found that the household computer had been accessed at 9:57 a.m, and that Microsoft Word had been used. Rather than pursuing the theory of a revenge killing, police quickly shifted their focus to the couple's daughter, D... keep reading on reddit ➡
UPDATE: as of March 31, Doe was identified as Turina Jeffries from Philadelphia. I’m glad to know she has her name back and I hope Deborah can one day be located and her family given peace
Okay so this is my first post but I couldn’t resist reaching out for opinions. I’ve been looking at Jane Does in my area since this whole quarantine and stumbled across this NamUs Profile https://www.namus.gov/UnidentifiedPersons/Case#/4747?nav and this CharleyProject profile http://charleyproject.org/case/deborah-jean-gamble . What stood out the most to me when I compared the two is the scars reported for each women- very similar except for Doe not being recorded to have the foot scar that Gamble does. Gamble went missing in Cleveland in April 1997 and Doe was found in Franklin County in May 1998. Could be be Gamble? Doe looks a bit younger in the skin but I believe this could be a result of picture airbrushing due to decomposition. If it is Gamble, it’s likely she was kept for awhile before she... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was just wondering why Arthur's voice was recorded with Roger Clark for the meeting with Deborah in case it was normally not possible to collect all bones with Arthur without the glitch since some of them were located in New Austin.
