A meme commonly circulated via social media (in various languages) purports to show a \"New Yorker millionaire\" named Brandon Torrent, who in 1979 capriciously allowed himself to be photographed urinating on a homeless person:
But millionaire \"Brandon Torrent\" doesn't exist, and the photograph was staged in 1983 for use on a poster by writer and cartoonist David Gessner, who based the scene upon a satirical cartoon he had drawn in college. As Gessner explained in his blog back in 2011:
As noted in that blog entry, the original poster Gessner created simply bore the legend \"THE TRICKLE DOWN THEORY\" at its bottom. The text that now accompanies the photograph about \"New Yorker millionaire Brandon Torrent\" is a completely fabricated backstory that someone else added to the image:
Did you love the suspense of the original movie \"The Hitcher\" If so you may want to seek out \"The Millionaire Tour\". I say seek because it isn't a movie you've likely heard of. That's not bad in this case as it is quite decent and keeps you on edge much like The Hitcher did. I only mention The Hitcher because it was a modest movie with edginess that rose above it's humbleness, and so does \"The Millionaire Tour\".This movie starts out with a simple, quite possible, premise where a man and woman duo, working for a person deemed to be a prominent criminal called \"The Roman\", hijack a taxi and it's hand-picked occupant. The occupant is himself a con-man who has committed some big-time wrongs to people who don't go down without seeking revenge...or is he As lower-rung criminals will do the kidnappers are a bit greedy: they employ a graft called \"the millionaire tour\" to extract as much from their target as possible before handing him over to the man. Things get complicated adding to the suspense mightily.What you have here is a well-crafted thriller. It seethes and builds on the humble plot it has employed. In other words, a spartan movie that rises above the low-budget with its fine screenplay and good characterizations by those involved. Speaking of the cast, you may have seen several of the main players as they're highly photogenic, but it is likely you will recognize only one by name, Dominic Monaghan. Dominic has had some high-profile roles, the best known has to be playing the character of Simon in Lost. He's a good character actor - in that realm it is knocking on being A-list status. He doesn't disappoint here. The supporting cast, while unknown in name, deliver their character's roles in excellent fashion too. When given the chance I'm always amazed at what relatively unknown creative people can achieve when presented a worthy palate.If you like slow building suspenseful movies then this one is a no-brainer as it better than many big budget fiascoes whose suspense is based on explosions and body counts.
This is a semi-faith based film. Religion and faith play a small role. A well dressed Greg (Jordan Belfi) is picked up by a cab driver at the airport. The cab ends up picking up two more fares, Caspar (Dominic Monaghan) and Billie Boy (Agnes Bruckner). They take him on the \"millionaire tour\" which is a trip to various ATMs until his credit cards max out. Afterwards they are to take the man to meet \"The Roman.\"The film consists most of dialogue between Greg, his captors, and Eddie the cab driver (Dave Vescio) interrupted by pieces of action. The crooks have a sense of humor which keeps things going, plus you know there is going to be a twist...or two. Fairly tight script with some fair acting.PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bomb, no sex or nudity.

As you can see, on the forward chain, I added the L7 torrent-wwws, which was defined earlier. This means anyone trying to browse to any of our specified bit torrent sites will get blocked. Also if their client tries to hit the tracker with a get request, it gets stopped too. Now, just to put a bow on top, lets be a little more devious! Lets block DNS queries based on the same regex.

Popular torrenting websites, also known as public trackers, have made it easier than ever to find what you're looking for. These websites may seem tempting, but they don't come without risk. Copyright notices from your Internet provider and malware are becoming increasingly common.
As you may have guessed, there are private trackers as well. These private torrenting sites contain a massive selection of content ranging from ultra-high definition movies to obscure media. If you want it, these sites have it.
Private torrent trackers work in the same way as their public counterparts, with some distinct differences. For starters, they are usually restricted to those that are members of the site. New membership to these websites is often extremely difficult if allowed at all. Users are also required to follow a strict set of rules and guidelines.
In the private torrenting scene, being the first to upload something rare is an accolade. Being the first to upload new content is a race to the finish line, and not only for bragging rights. Many private trackers have a bounty system in place where members can request media that is not yet available on the site. Filling these requests comes with a nice bonus, traditionally in the form of upload credit.
If you're someone who wants the highest quality media like lossless music and 4k Blu-ray quality films, you'll have a difficult time finding anything beyond the mainstream on public torrent sites. Even those masquerading as truly lossless and 4k are more likely than not compressed in some way to reduce file size. This compression leads to a noticeable loss in quality that is especially prevalent for those with higher-end home entertainment systems.
With a library of over half a million torrents to choose from, it comes at no surprise that this is the best private torrent tracker online right now. For comparison, the private tracker with the closest quantity of movies available has roughly half as many torrents.
PTP is going to be one of the harder trackers to get invited to, and registration is currently closed. If you are just starting out with private torrenting, it'd be best to join another tracker on this list to build up a good ratio and reputation for when it does reopen. It'll be worth the time and effort.
What sets BTN apart from the competition, however, is the fact that it does not require you to maintain a minimum ratio on the site to download. This unorthodox system as such makes it one of the more difficult trackers to join, only offering direct recruitment and an invite system. This makes BroadcastTheNet one of the best private torren
